EDIT: Here are two videos that were posted on YouTube during the rebuilding.

Anybody who knows me personally knows that I'm a big rock fan. One of my favorite bands of all time is Queen. I love how different some of their music is from the standard fare.

All I have to say is that I'm certainly amused.

So yesterday, I took the four-plus hour drive to New York City to see my first Broadway show, along with 50 other students who are taking theatre classes or are involved with theatre at my school. The show: Wicked.
At first, I was a little bit unsure what to expect. I mean, I liked the soundtrack and all, but it seemed like it would be a little bit mushy for me, and I write romance. However, I wasn't one to pass up the opportunity to get orchestra level seating to a Broadway show.
