Some Stars Just Don't Play The Part

I feel like going on a rampage here. I don't think that this is right at all! There is a rumor going around on Twitter that Taylor Lautner is going to star in the American Idiot movie. This really upsets me and my fellow Idiots.

Yes some of us, including me, don't care for Lautner at all, but that is besides the point. In order to play a part in the Idiot movie, you have to have a concept about what the whole thing actually means. I doubt that Taylor even saw American Idiot. American Idiot has a true meaning that means the world to us Idiots. To have some so called "famous actor" waltz into something that is our baby does not and will not make any of us happy.

So Billie Joe, do you want people to see your movie just because Taylor Lautner is in it? Do you want all of your fans and the American Idiot fans to be upset with you and the director? Do you want your movie to LOOSE the true meaning to it? I don't think that Billie Joe wants that to happen and hopefully he won't let something like that happen.

We all want the original Broadway Cast to play in the movie, but if that doesn't happen, at least get some normal actors and not the stuck up actors that we all know will not play the part right.

For Example: We all know how much I LOVE Channing Tatum. If Channing Tatum was going to be in the movie I would still be a little upset. I don't think that Channing would play a good part in that kind of movie. AND I am even obsessed with Channing.

So see, it really makes a difference to people who plays in something that changed their lives. American Idiot changed my life and I don't want someone like Taylor Lautner in MY movie.

Sparks? I Think So!

Today, I find my self loving Nicholas Spark's books more and more each day. I actually find myself writing a lot more too. I absolutely LOVE Nicholas Spark's novel's.'

 I have read, The Notebook, The Rescue, The Guardian Dear John, The Last Song, and I am now reading True Believer. I plan on Reading all 16 books, and the new one coming out in October. I really didn't use to like reading until I read my first Nicholas Sparks novel. For some reason, I just feel so relaxed when I read his books. It is kind of funny.

I never saw myself as a person who would love to read books because I used to HATE reading. I used to skim through all of my school books because I didn't want to read them. I think that people should read more Nicholas Sparks novels because they are funny, sad, romantic, and you always love the amazing endings of the novels. I never get let down by a Nicholas Sparks novel. My favorite novel so far is The Rescue. I loved that book because I loved the connection between Taylor and Kyle. Sometimes I found myself crying while reading that novel. I truly recommend reading Sparks!

To tweet or not to tweet?

As we all know Twitter is becoming more popular every day. I am also a Twitter user and honestly I LOVE it! I use it way more than Facebook. I hear a lot of people think it is dumb but I don't think that at all. For Facebook, you pretty much have to know the person in order to add them, and most people will not add random people. For Twitter, all you have to do is say something, and if someone likes it they will follow you, or they will start to talk to you. They find you with similar interests, and similar people who you follow.

I have a huge circle of followers that I adore. Yeah, it may sound weird but it's not weird at all. I have made friends from all over the world. I have made friends that are from my home town, and I have made some that are not even close to where I live. I love these people with all my heart. We have connected in a way that only we can explain. People look at me funny all the time when I tell them about my Twitter friends, or if I even talk about them. The people that give dirty looks have no right, because they are missing out on something that an give you more hope than ever. I have my friends that give me advice. I have my friends that I can talk about my obsessions with. I have my friends that make me laugh, and smile. I have my friends that I can give advice to. All of these "friends" have become my family. I don't care what anyone else says, I will always connect with my tweeps.

Here is just a small list of my family:
@andscreaming, @sunshels, @lolas_ramblings, @cerichards21, @lizsername, @whatsername43, @stjimmysinned, @jtdscape, @mollykessler, @yankeegirl51680, @mamatheangels, @amy_sposito, @jennihinchey,@sunshiineeee, @grassmahgirl, @honest2groff

Follow me @ChanManTatumLuv and see if we can connect in the same way that I have to all of these people.

What do I miss about "American Idiot"?

You know a lot goes through my mind when I get asked this question. I had a friend that asked me this the other day. Honestly I miss WAY too much. I miss EVERYTHING.

I miss the excitement you get while sitting in the St. James Theatre seat waiting until curtain call. I miss the way your heart drops when Michael Esper turns around on the couch. I miss the way John Gallagher Jr looks his first line. I miss the way Stark Sands approach looks on stage. I miss Rebecca Naomi Jones's first drop of a pretty note. I miss Theo Stockman's bus solo. I miss that amazement you get during favorite son. I miss that moment when you feel like your going to cry when Stark sings "Are We The Waiting." I miss that Thrill you get when Tony Vincent comes running on the stage. I miss the glitter St. Jimmy throws. I miss the way Johnny and Whatsername Sing "Last Of The American Girls/She's A Rebel." I miss Johnny's little Delawarean accent. :) I miss the way that Michael cries during "Give me Novacaine" I miss the way I used to get majorly jealous when Will made out with Heather. I miss the way I felt when Tunny and Extraordinary Girl flew in the sky. I miss the way they reshow everything during "Whatsername." I miss the way you got to see more with the encore "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life.) I miss stage door. I miss that theatre. I even miss the body guard John.

There are so many mixed feelings during the show and after the show. The show left you with a feeling that stays with you for the rest of your life. I honestly will NEVER forget the way I felt the first time I saw American Idiot, and the time I saw it in Idiot Nation seats. They were totally two different experiences and I am so glad that I had an opportunity to go with my best friend and see the show for the first and last time. I want to thank Michael Mayer, the cast and the man that made everything right, Billie Joe Armstrong. American Idiot was a HUGE part of my life and it will always be. The way I felt on American Idiots last performance was out of this world. I felt like a part of me was being crushed into a million pieces. The fact that it is coming to my home town for the tour, keeps me going. I will always be an Idiot <3
