queenelizabeth 's Thoughts:

I was so excited to wear this jacket that I found at a thrift store yesterday. The bright red color and shiny gold buttons remind me of a marching-band jacket, and in particular the movie version of The Music Man. I have an unhealthy obsession with this movie because last year, when I had a stomach virus and stayed home from school, all I did was sit on the couch, drink red Gatorade, and watch the DVD of The Music Man. Over and over and over. So now I can recite all the lyrics from memory and even some of the scenes. Sad, I know. But did I mention that the costumes are INCREDIBLE? It’s almost worth watching with the sound off just to see all the lovely old-fashioned things.
I tried to find a screenshot of the lead character in his marching band jacket, but came up empty-handed. But seriously, if you can, find a clip on Youtube or one of those illegal sites, or rent a DVD or something. It’s worth it, even if you hate musicals. I promise.
