Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes.


"Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes. How do you measure, measure a year? "
The movie RENT hits theaters in November, and the trailer is available along with other cool stuff at the movie website.

I am SO not a musical hound. However, there are a few musicals that I adore, and RENT is one of them. The soundtrack has amazing power for giving me hope, aspiration, and awe. I don't know what it is. But I sing those songs with wild abandon. (And I don't have much of a singing voice.) Sounds like a lot of the original Broadway cast is in the movie, and no matter what, I'm going to see it in a theater with really good sound just so I can hear that music LOUD. Oh, I just know I'm going to cry like a baby during that one. It's good! Get yourself over to the movie website and hear some of the music for free...this is one of my favorites...
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure -- measure a year?

In daylights -- In sunsets
In midnights -- In cups of coffee
In inches -- In miles
In laughter -- In strife

In -- Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in the life?

How about love?
How about love?
How about love?
Measure in love

Seasons of love
Seasons of love

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Journeys to plan
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure the life
Of a woman or a man?

In truths that she learned
Or in times that he cried
In bridges he burned
Or the way that she died

It's time now - to sing out
Tho' the story never ends
Let's celebrate
Remember a year in the life of friends

Remember the love
Remember the love
Remember the love
Measure in love

Measure, measure your life in love

Seasons of love ...
Seasons of love

Seasons of Love from RENT by Jonathan Larson

Lelo's childhood aspiration was to be in the cast of Fame. That was, of course, because they decided not to make a Grease 3,4 and 5.

Girl, give me a date and I will be up there to watch it with you! I'll skip school if I have to.

I actually SAW Rent with a girlfriend when it was at the Hult Center here. I came away totally loving Dan Rosenbaum.
