I drew a picture of what I wanted, and a neighbor who was like my adopted grandmother made up a pattern and sewed it for me. I don't want to come off like a naive dope, but is it...

Truthfully, he probably found it pretty entertaining to hang out with me, b/c when it came to pop culture, you would have thought I had come from another country! I had not seen a lot of the popular movies or tv shows that were commonly known. b/c my parents forbid it, and I was just generally...

Here's my review of the movie, FWIW: Johnny Depp -- fantastic. He obviously doesn't sing like a Bdwy pro, but he sings well enough for his interpretation of this character. He was great as the dark, brooding, mad Todd. Helena Bonham Carter -- she was okay, but her voice was...
