I spent yesterday morning having a lie in watching Jesus Christ Superstar for the umpteenth time. Which irriated Girlpants to no end as unlike him, I knew all the words.

Sim: har har har! Years ago I saw Godspell and guess who was John the Basptist? Jeremy Irons with the most beautiful red hair.

Those past two comments are funny in an ironic sort of way. We make it a point to watch Jesus Christ Superstar in this household every Easter.

Michele sent me.

Leigh: hi! I don't believe I have ever seen JCS.

He looked a bit cross eyed to me. Maybe that's what having nails whacked into your wrists does for you eh? ;-)

Got in trouble round my sis in laws for A) Complaining they didn't have Sky so I missed the football and B) Giggling every time the cross eyed Jesus appeared on screen.

I also drank all of their beer and much of their vodka.

That'll teach 'em to not have Sky.

Hope yer got lots of eggs x

4D: hawk eyes is kinder! My son suffers the same problem when he comes here re Sky I mean. Tough!
Because we had no children this year- they are coming at the end of the school hols wewere eggless. However I did feel a bit deprived having told MTL on no account to buy me any chocolate. He usually has a stash somewhere so I found and demolishe a box of Ferrero Rocher- which I don't really like because they are too big to get to grips with.

...and what a performance it was. A wonderful piece of TV without any frills or gimics.

Hmm. He's good, but he's no Robert Powell.

PI said...

Sam: this photo flatters him. He was very hawk-like I thought.

PI said...

Keith: yes I'm glad I saw it all in the end. I couldn't face Mel Gibson's

He looks more like a Brian than a Jesus. McChe spoilt it for me, he told me how it ends. Jimmy Nesbitt as a Norn Irish Pilate was priceless.

You would love JCS the movie Pat, and you probably know all the words to all the songs. I saw Godspell when I was 15 with David Essex as JC!

The Last Temptation of Christ is also worth watching, great weld music soundtrack by Peter Gabriel. Mel Gibson's Passion was disappointing.

PI said...

Daphne: I was rather older but saw the same production of Godspell. I remember admiring Jeremy Irons red hair and regretting that David Essex - so young, had a beer pot. Just think we might have been sitting in the same row:)
