The Cellar, 2012-2013
As the title suggests, my name is Drew “Stradivarius” B, otherwise known as the “Ukulele Dude.” However I much prefer “the Duke of the Uke.” I would best categorize my personality as one trapped in the wrong era. some people have likened me to a typical character found in the TV show “That 70′s Show”…always been a fan of Hide… I like his hair… I digress… Music is pretty much my life and resonates within every fiber of my being. With this in mind, do not be surprised when you see me prancing down the hallways in a peculiar fashion, or singing in registers inappropriate for one who has been endowed with the curse of a “drummer’s ear” that leaves me always sounding way too flat… Speaking of drums, drums and percussion is my primary instrument. I’ve been doing so for 8 years now, and quite frankly I’ve had a gas in following my musical pursuits thus far. When asking me about my preferred music taste, I would say that I am heavily influenced by the jazz age, where I am a firm believer that drumming was actually considered a profession instead of the senseless beatings of modern drummers who in my personal opinion all tend to blend together in to one 120 bpm generic rock beat
If you have ears on your head and a internet connection, you’ve probably heard or read about this movie. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read or heard kids quoting this movie then falling out of their seats, landing on the floor, and gripping the tummies for air because they were laughing so hard.
This movie is about a freshman in college, Becca, who decides to become part of an all-girl competitive,very traditional, singing group named “The Bellas.” After losing year after year to their boy counterparts, Becca decides to “remix” the group’s traditional music with new-age pop.
The movie stars big actors such as Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Skylar Astin.
I really liked this movie. I got a huge kick out of Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) and The Quiet Asian Girl (Hana Mae Lee); anything that came out of their mouths, I was basically crying because I was laughing so hard. It was so funny. I can’t tell you how many times I laughed. It was fantastic! If you’re ever upset about life or crying over a breakup, seriously watch this movie. You’ll forget about the world. Another thing I loved is the fact that because there were so many girls in the “group,” you could find at least one or more characters you can relate to…and sing along with. I also liked the music, even though it’s not what I listen to during my free time.
Even though I really enjoyed watching the movie, I didn’t like some things in it. One, I didn’t like how cheesy and predictable the plot was. Let’s face it, you can only do so much plot-wise when it comes to girls singing in competition with the same girls. Two, some of the topics they talked about were a bit awkward if you were in a room with a super conservative parent or a six grader.( Just a warning!) Three, the movie starts off sloth-like. It seriously was CRAWLING. I think I even leaned over to my friend and asked him what time it was, which is something I never do.
Regardless, I give this movie a 8 out of 10 because it was hilarious and a fantastic “feel good” teen movie.
Seriously, go see it.
Howdy. So the Levy (the one that means that Perrysburg won’t have to cut just about every single elective and language class is has) has passed! Now, I don’t want to take COMPLETE credit for the levy passing (with that fabulous informative levy that Evan and I were in, and Matt Corbett filmed and edited) however I must say I am proud of the Cellar staff for their efforts to promote the facts. So congratulations Perrysburg! Because of this, classes like Photo, Art, and THE CELLAR (=D) will thrive for years to come.
Huzzah! Also we also had complete faith in the people to have the levy pass all along.
…But check out Brandel’s “contingency” video just for kicks and giggles.
