Jump in! – the next High School Musical?

Jump In movie still


I just saw this article about Disney Channel’s hopeful follow-up to High School Musical. Whether you loved or hated HSM, you will recognize curly-haired Corbin Bleu as Izzy, a young boxer who finds he digs the competitive double Dutch in his neighborhood. Of course his dad’s not too happy (he wants him to become a boxing champ)…and of course there’s a hint of romance with his double Dutch teammate, Mary.

Since I just posted about how skateboarding’s not just for guys, I thought this would be a good follow-up. Jumping rope — it’s not just for girls!

And *just in case* you were wondering, production on High School Musical 2 is set to begin soon.


Elvis has left the building…but he’s online.

I just saw this article about efforts to make Elvis cool again. He’s on MySpace, he’s on YouTube, and he’s about to be on a Hershey’s wrapper (you’ll have to read it to find out about that!).

Moving Elvis content online should be easy; making Elvis cool again will be more difficult. After all, for most kids, Elvis is the music of their parents’ — or grandparents’ — generation.

Is it possible to make Elvis cool again? Or is he still cool? :)

Or should I ask, is it possible to reinvent yourself online — even if you’re dead??
