Good Evening



We had wanted to see this movie in the theater, but it never came to our little town. So, when it was released on dvd earlier this week I tried to find a copy. It's not in the RedBox machines and Blockbuster only had 4 copies (all of which were rented out).
Then LaRue said "What about the library?"
I got on the library website and sure enough they had it. So we made a quick run and I checked it out. The best part is that I have it for 2 weeks from the library for free instead of a $2.99 one night rental.

As for the movie - we really enjoyed it. It was an interesting look into what Hitchcock had to do to make the film Psycho.

It is definitely worth renting.

Phantom of the Opera - High School Version

The other day we noticed that the dinosaur statue had a new decoration:


It is in honor of the local high school production of Phantom of the Opera. I wrote earlier about the performance we went to at BYU and how good that was.

We decided to attend the high school production last night. And it was surprisingly good. They kids did a great job and everyone sang well. Also the falling chandelier was much more dramatic at the high school than it was at BYU.

 They also did a really good job with the effects. It was definitely one of the better high school performances we have seen.


Here's a link to an article in the local paper about the production:
