The Cult Lit Song
Okay, If you were in Cult Lit on Tuesday, you saw the origins of this song- it is now, for the most part finished. I will most likely randomly perform it during this musical!! And I claim all rights to do it :oP
I present to you all: "Wait For The Bell"- to the tune of "Over the Moon" from Rent
Last night, I had a dream. I found myself in a desert called…Cult Lit Land. It was hot. My head hurt very badly and I was…stressed. Out of the abyss walked a classical style statue- David. I asked him if he had any aspirin and he said quite randomly, “IIIIII am forbidden to put on leaves. In Cult Lit Land all statues are NUDE.” He said- “Only thing to do is just wait for the bell.”
“They’ve closed everything good down…like study guides and fill-in-the-blank note sheets and HEAAALTHY FREE TIME! And replaced it all-ll with fast paced videos and notes and ARTS AND IDEAS(eas-eas). But there is a way out. (Five more minutes to go, five more minutes to go) Only thing to do is just wait for the bell.”
I-I-I’ve gotta get outta here! It’s like I’m being tied to the top of an 18th century carriage bein’ packed up with Gothic novels, and oil paints pushed off a cliff by a suicidal Michael Wood! IIIIIIII’ve gotta (10x) find a way--to just wait for the bell, only thing to do is just wait for the bell.
And then- a miniature pit bull in red sneakers entered. His name we have learned…is William Fleming. And though he once cherished free adolescence he abandoned it to live as a boring stuffy historian. A one a two a three “That’s bull,” he said. “Ever since the Monday orals have been over you students have been- waiting. The Korai and the Kouros were evicted from the book and eloped- you’ve been staring at the door and the clock ever since- maybe it’s a, teenage thing. Cuz WHOOO’d want to leave Cult Lit Land anyway? Notes ain’t so bad! The Korai and the Kouros for instance, they miss being in the pages, come knocking on my art deco door, and I say, “Not in my book benchmark sculptures, GO BACK TO GREECE!” (biddee baaaa)
“The only way’s through the door!” As he whispered to me. "A LEEEEAF OF MODESTY!"
“Still sore? STRESSED? Look at the clock.” And I looked up…at the standard Shen classroom clock…and realized we only had 10 more seconds to go! *sigh* “TAKE MY HAND!” he said. And I took his hand, and that blessed bell rang, and we SPRANG out the door, flying into the hallway, I AWOKE SINGING! (we are free we are free) Only thing to do, only thing to do is wait, only thing to do is just wait for the belll, only thing to do is just wait for the bell, wait for the bell, wait for the bell…Free…freeeeee…freeeeeeeeeee! Say it with me! Freee (however many times)
Thank you! Current Mood: Where is my dad??

ACTUAL SCRIPT SO FAR
A VERY GERRY ADVENTURE
narrator: "We see Gerry sitting in a room looking very meloncholy. Ever since Christine left him for the king of Fops, he's been down in teh dumps. But recently he's gotten into musicals. He's fallen in lov with the leading ladies from Rent, Wicked and Aida. His Master Plan is to have them join his harem, but who knows if it can mask the pain of teh hole in his heart left by the fopette Christine."
(play music- Alone Again? it goers I'm all alone, theres no one here beside me...)
Gerry:Christine Christine! Why did you have to leave me? I have much better hair than that fop! And everyone knows lemurs are sexy! Wait a minute! If I cant have the girl of my dreams, I'll amke a harem! It's time to put my time portal to use again! Glinda, Elphaba, Maureen, Mimi, Aida and Amneris, HERE I COME!
(gerry leaps into time portal, lands in jurassic age)
narrator:WE see a pink dinosaur dancing, Gerry stands still stupiified, not knowing waht to think.
(Chris begins singing Today 4 U, gerry shakes his head not believeing what he jsut saw and leaves in time portal)
Narrator: ANd that was the very first musical

Party at my house after the Global Regents and Bio Review, which ends at 12:30, so about 1 o'clock. Bring your swimsuit and a towel, even if it rains, just in case. If you're going to Bio review, my mom or dad will bring us back to my house.
REMEMBER BATHING SUITS, VERY IMPORTANT!!!
Amanda, bring the video camera, we must watch the Cult/Lit craziness.
See you all then. Any questions, you can call me, I know you all have my number. Current Mood: happy

The musical, Jenna, is about Gerry the Sexy Purple Lemur. I don't know if we've fully developed the plot yet. It's basically about Gerry going through time to different eras and meeting all of the different female characters from the different musicals. I believe there will be some sort of competition for his affections. We will incorporate any and all inside jokes, and pop culture references into it, including cult/lit of course.
I hope that clears some things up for you Jenna. Current Mood: blank
Guys what the heckeroo is this musical about anyway?! i thought i knew now you guys are talking about hot tubs and dancing and what the heck! im so confused!!! Current Mood: confused

i got bored and thought of this....
ok here goes
1) during hot tub scene, maureen says "now this is what i call La Vie Boheme!"
someone else-"Whats la vie boheme?" Maureen-'Well...." (Cue music and we all sing along)
thats how we can introduce the song, bc it cant just happen for no reason
2)have a mini dr. phil section somewhere
3)Since its a harem, and harems are full lof LOVE, we can use Seasons of Love to finish the musical...we all stand in a line like in rent and lip synch
4)Gerry sings clips of Music of the Night to seduce the women
5)Gerry has them do a Dating Game in which he finds he isnt compatible with anyone but christine so they get sad and sing without you(from rent) OR....... Gerry picks only one of them, possibly elphaba so they can sing as long as youre mine
possible questions for dating game
--how do you feel about lemurs?
--describe yourself in 3 words
--whats your idea of the perfect date
--where do you see yourself in 5 years
--whats your fav color
then me and lydia can battle over whos fav color is pink, bc amneris and glinda are both very girly
ok thats it
Alright so i had this super awesome idea which started with a pic of sarah!!! I'm gonna take pics of us n photoshop em so they look like the characters we're playin in the musical!!! Then I'm gonna put em onto a POSTER!!! to advertise for the musical wahooooo lol :-P hehe this is gonna be awesome!
If you haven't seen the pics i made so far IM me n i'll send em to ya....so far I have two (cept one isn't really their character but u kno what i mean)!!

A stroke of inspiration!! aha!
Yeah me and Jen were just sitting through Cabaret, and when were were not talking about Ryan in ten minutes ago we were listening to that producers song those guy's sang and thought it would be funny if we rewrote it to model cult/lit class. Haha, we cant do it. cheers* Current Mood: blah
