    Millions of 11 year olds and I rejoiced today. HSM2 soundtrack official release day! :D I've listened to most of it twice after picking it up on the way back from Shands Jax, at Walmart, where it's on sale for $9.72.

    The movie drops on the Disney Channel on Friday night. :D

    Did you know, that in 2006, the soundtrack to High School Musical was the top selling album in the US, with sales of 3.7M, beating out Carrie Underwood, Beyoncé, the Chicks, and even Disney's own Ms. Hannah Montana's first album. :)

    I'm horrified for the American music buying public.

    Get your s*** in gear people :eek:

    Mmmmm... :)

    I'll have to content myself with a couple of songs on the way to the hospital. :)

    P.S. Did you know that the last time a television soundtrack hit number one in US album sales, it was Miami Vice in the 1980s. :)

    Most of the people buying it don't want to listen to it and the people listening to it don't really hear how bad it is because they're looking at someone on the packaging and planning their future from that. :D

    I am so pumped. Seriously I got asked if I wanted to see Rush Hour 3 this Friday and I turned it down because there is no way I am missing the premier.

    I am a huge DCOM fan.

    I can't stand anything on the disney channel. They're movies that make it to theater aren't bad, but everything else is.

    That said, My brother and my sisters are all fans of it. :rolleyes:

    Sweet! We're doing sushi / happy hour Friday evening. We're going tubing or kayaking Saturday morning, though, so I'm going to want my rest. That and this combined means that unless something is très interessant, I will go home after sushi and watch HSM2 DVR-delayed. :)

    Here's an extra bonus if you got love. :p I made this Humuhumunukunukuapua'a ringtone for my Blackberry. It's a zip file because of QuickShareIt's limitations... the MP3 is 220kb if that affects whether your phone can handle it or not. :) Also another one from You Are The Music In Me (465kb unzipped)

    Coverage today in the LA times... Apparently the CD single that was released debuted at #1 on soundscan by the time the album came out Tuesday. And 160 million people worldwide have seen HSM. :)

    That is nuts. I really wonder if Disney knew what it had before they released it, or if HSM was just a throwaway movie to garner some average-above average ratings.

    I tend to think they cleverly orchestrated it. They dovetailed Ashley Tisdale's solo career with just the right timing. But I also think they got lucky. Kids literally were watching that movie like 10-15 times! :eek: There are not a lot of 12 year olds in the US who don't know the lyrics to it by heart.

    And not just 12 year olds either. My girlfriend's 6 year old daughter knows them all too.

    Yeah... I'm also cognizant of the fact that I'm not twelve anymore myself. :eek:

    The press coverage is building... less than 10 hours to go!!!!

    I hope I am not subjected to these bad disney songs/vids while I am working at disney world.

    I really can't stand much of what is on the disney channel/radio. I like a lot of the movies (mostly animated and older movies such as "That Darn Cat").

    Yeah, but Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior doesn't seem to have done nearly as well.

    I took a look at the HSM/HSM2 wikis, and all I can think is "What hath God wrought?"

    Haha, yes, I'm very concerned about my score on your system.

    I loved it! Maybe even more than the first one. The baseball scene was amazing. Ryan (Lucas Gabreel) in general was really great.

    Ahhh, we'll definitely have fun with this one at camp. :)

    I actually turned down a weekend trip to my friends house in Vermont and an invitation to see rush hour III to watch this movie.

    I thought it was pretty good, not as good as the first though. It was pretty predictable and I didn't like how varied the music styles were.

    I laughed hysterically when Troy turned all emo and was leaping around the golf course. It kinda reminded me of the Lion King, and so did a song that sounded like "can you feel the love tonight" in the beginning.

    I also noticed Myle Stewert/Cyrus aka Hannah Montana is an extra in the staff party at the end of the movie.

    I also liked how Ryan wasn't a complete idiot and not nearly as flamboyant. I hate all the hats that the kids wear, they're so weird.

    Haha, that was her?

    I thought the Bet On It part was really funny too. Almost Bollywood excessive. :D
