Three Shiny Pretties of the Day  
1. Eventful in taking care of daily and necessary chores: dishes, loads of laundry which is still a work in progress but almost done with, and I'm attempting to clean the dust that has invaded my room for Lord knows how long. This weekend I plan on vacuuming the entire house, also preplanning my school supplies because college starts almost soon now, and when it does everything gets jumbled up with time and cramming for getting assignments done within the very first week. I already have a list of things I need. Yeah, no more procrastinating for this girl, nuh-uh.

2. Okay, just recently I went to Borders and, lo and behold, I saw Carnivàle season two already in stock --- for $100! So, I checked online at the Borders/Amazon website and they have it for $63.27; lower in price, but still way too much to spend at this moment in time. Hopefully it'll go down around Christmas or so. But damn, I really want the second season gorrammit. Oh well, at least it's out!

3. I desperately want to see Step Up, because the premise is about dancing and for me, being a dancer myself, I find immediate intrigue. Plus, the trailer is completely sizzling hot.

I love college talk! For me getting stuff situated for that kind of stuff is really fun.

I don't think I'll go see Step Up - I've seen enough dance movies. Most are almost the same, just with different characters, and different reasons to pity them. And most of the movies this summer have commercialed a million times but after they enter theaters, you don't hear anything else about them.

You're completely right about the majority of dance films, they all fall into the same formula reused time and time again. I actually had a discussion with some acquaintances in my former dance class this passed spring semester, they we all agreed that no matter what dance movie you're watching it does have a specific way of telling the story. Like, having a romantic relationship with someone which causes complications, and probably the biggest similarity is having a gigantic and stellar dance performance at the very end. But taking what I learned in my film and theatre studies class, it's the formula that reoccurs all the time, yet it keeps going and going because of the specific audience it targets that keeps up the hype.

Although Step Up may not be different from those other movies I've watched before, I'm still compelled to see it. It's the attraction that it is a dance-related film that I find irresistible and a guilty pleasure, personally speaking that is. :)

Wow. The price of some DVD seasons are just ridiculous. I hate when they are so expensive.

It's just insane. I mean, I don't have that kind of money lying around just to buy a DVD boxset.

AH!!! I am so so so so excited about STEP UP.... Why because I think either Brian Freedman or Shane Sparks might have choreographed some of it..., plus yes let us all stop and drool while staring at the yummy boy in the previews...
