During our 15-minute commute I get to listen to Howard Stern. I am not complaining - because to be honest I have no choice but to enjoy it. Some things are ridiculous - but honestly sometimes there are gems like the Lady Gaga interview and performance . Seriously - how talented is this woman? This performance definitely put her high up in my books. Plus my father-in-law likes her - so I have to as well right? Watch this video - I'll wait.
Amazing right? I like this version 100 times better than the radio one. I want to watch Lady Gaga perform all her songs unplugged like this. It gives me chills.
OK so I had a point to this - not to talk exclusively about Lady Gaga. The other day as we were driving to work I heard, on Howard Stern, that 'they' were planning on doing a remake of Dirty Dancing. This news saddens me. I am a fan of modernization but seriously - why my all time favourite movie? Plus the timing seems so bad with the passing of Patrick Swayze (which was nearly two years ago - WTF?). I can't think of anyone who could play the role of Johnny Castle better than P.Swayz. And Baby? Jennifer Grey was perfect for that role - she'll always be Baby to me. I mean wasn't Dirty Dancing Havana Nights enough?
I've been watching this movie since I was a little girl. I used to watch it - and when it was finished I would rewind the VHS and watch it again and again. I knew every word. I knew every dance. I knew every song. I, to this day, try to watch it every year around my birthday. I watch it when I clean the house. It reminds me of my childhood. It's a classic. I really hope the plans to remake and possibly ruin a legendary movie flop. Because seriously - how can you recreate this scene? You can't!
