@SmartBitches: For @cleolinda and her dubstep fever, which I think she passed to me today: [ANIMALS TALKING IN ALL CAPS link, yesss]

@SmartBitches: Seriously, @cleolinda, passing on your low grade dubstep fever was TOTALLY UNCOOL. I will have my revenge! After a nap.

@cleolinda: mmcha mmcha mmcha mmcha WOOP WOOP WOOP WOOP

@SmartBitches: *whimper whimper CHU CHU CHU*

The Les Miserables movie is getting Amanda Seyfried for Cosette ("In the musical, the character is the daughter of Fantine, who is set to be played by Anne Hathaway") and Taylor Swift has been offered Eponine, to the consternation of all Twitter. "Also already attached to the film are Hugh Jackman (as Jean Valjean), Helena Bonham Carter, Russell Crowe, and Sacha Baron Cohen," and director Tom Hooper wants to film them singing it live, rather than lip-syncing, and all I know about Les Mis is that all the theater kids were obsessed with it and Valjean like steals a loaf of bread or something so Javert chases him endlessly for umpteen thousand years because sometimes justice is not just, so if someone drops that reference I'll get it, and nothing else. Well, a friend of mine used to play "Master of the House" a lot. Wait, I think I remember Claire Danes in a huge bonnet. Okay, I'm reading the summary on Wikipedia now, and I'm getting "French uprising, not the Revolution like I thought; pretty girls suffer." So, what I'm saying is, I should have a blessedly uncomplicated movie experience, free of any previous stagings. Huzzah!

Meanwhile: LITTLE GIRL IN A CROCHETED YODA HAT FOR YOU TO BUY (the hat, not the girl) (I mean, I guess you can make an offer?).

I am tired. *flop*

I am so disappoint. Where is Johnny Depp as Javier? Yes, I have seen this on stage. Three times YES THREE in London. One time in New zealand. Yes, New Zealand. And I have the CD and everything.
Also, Anne Hathaway is Fantine, mother to Eponine, to be played by Amanda Seyfried. Anne Hathaway is three years older than Amanda Seyfried, so here we go again with the famous Hollywood L-shaped sheet. Eeeeew.
On the bright side, maybe this will dissuade my son from calling our new not-kitten Sparta (so he can hold it up and roar THIS IS SPARTA!) and call it 24601 instead (because that will confuse the neighbours).

Isn't Fantine mother to Cosette....?

Also time passes between when we'll see Cosette as an adult (I'm assuming this is what you mean anyway) and when Fantine dies and gives her daughter to Valjean, so the three year age difference won't matter.

And I've only seen a schools version and the concert on DVD...

Ah, you are in fact completely correct! Embarrassing, given the number of times I have seen it!

Would like to see Akan Rickman as Javert.
