    1. Imagine Eli trying to even figure out WTH song that co-op thing was supposed to be parodying.
    2. My high school ex-boyfriend and his later high school girlfriend (and eventual wife) could attest that the other thing you could do while up in that hidden space in the theater was make out... and then some, especially if there were an adult foolish enough to give you the key when there wasn't actual theater going on in there. They were very much the talk of the drama club.

    I hope last year " SUDDEN MUSICIANS - THIS YEAR AWARD WINNER " ACTOR / PRODUCER / DIRECTOR / COMPOSER / SINGER ...
    still have some of the unpicked voice notes ... As a proof to their musical intelligence ! MUSIC WAS IN FILMS BEFORE ACTORS COULD SPEAK ! LOOK AT THE SILENT FILMS .. THE DIALOGUE IS MUSIC , LIKE THE FAMOUS TOM & JERRY PLAYING BEETHOVEN ! I WONDER WHY HE NEVER PREFORMED AT EVERY LATE NIGHT FUKIN' SHOWS ! 🔞
    I LOST IT WHEN HE SAID I RECORDED THE SONGS ON V.N 😂👌🏼 #MULANEY I LOVE THIS MAN 😳😱💋
    I PLAY PIANO FOR 24 YEARS , SINCE I WAS 6 .. AT THE AGE OF 17 I LEAD AN ENTIRE ORCHESTRA (THE BIGGEST GROUP OF MUSICIANS LIVE ON STAGE PERFORMANCE) & I HAD A SOLO PIECE IN FRONT THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE !
    I DID NOT DARE TO BE A COMPOSER ! IMAGINE DRAWING ON A HUGE CANVAS USING SPECIFIC COLORS ! OH U ONLY HAVE SOUND !OR MAYBE I AM TOO DUMB THATS WHY I STUDIED ARCHITECTURE .. STILL PLAYING MUSIC 😂
    THE MUSIC INDUSTRY FULL OF BRILLIANT NAMES HOW THE BIGGEST HOLLYWOOD CEREMONY STAGED FOR THE 1 YEAR MIRACLE ! HIS ACTING CAREER DID NOT SHOWED ANY SIGN OF HIDDEN TALENTS ! AFTER AMY WINEHOUSE (RIP) PROBABLY SIA ONLY CONSIDERED A MULTITALENTED ARTISTS BOTH 100% OWNING THEIR MUSIC , ADELE STARTED TO PLAY THE DRUMS IN HER LAST ALBUM ! HOW CAN HE DID ALL OF THAT THEN HEADED FOR THE AWARDS SEASONS ! HIS SIDEKICK FEW RULES MADE HIM A BILLIONAIRE !
    FYI: MUSIC WAS THERE WHEN THEY BUILT THE GREAT PYRAMIDS , UH THEY BOTH STILL STANDING ... 😈
