e looking into distance

Fame and teenage love...

I went to see Fame yesterday. I've seen the original (of course), and I LOVED the TV show. My thoughts on the new movie? Well, it was definitely better, for me, than the original. Not as gritty and scattered -- I felt like they showed a little more closure on a few of the characters, and I like closure. It was still a little too distracted, but for the most part, I liked it.

The boy they chose to be the male singing lead was amazing. His voice was gorgeous, and man, it so brought back to me my high school years. None of the boys in my choir were nearly as cute as this kid, but they could sing too. When the boy sang to Jennie in one scene, I almost cried. Seriously.

How about you? What have you experienced in your teen years that will always take you back there?
