Grease is the Word

  So this may be irrelevant, and if so, feel free to delete it, but I figured I give it a shot, right? So I'm a big Grease fan. That whole era was just unique, and as a result I started up an AU rpg related to the timeframe with the T-Birds and Pink Ladies, and no, the canon characters are not Danny and Sandy. It's a whole new crew with their own set of ideals, based on the original ones however. If anyone is interested it would be great to get some more Grease fanatics involved!

---


The year is 1956. A new school year has begun at Rydell High, and the T-Birds and Pink Ladies are settling back into the groove of running the social scene of the school while facing opposition from their rivals across town, the Scarlet Gypsies of St. Bernadettes and their guys, the Scorpions. The Rydell kids are looking to not only lay claim to the high school, but the town as well. Everyone else is just struggling to survive.

There will be football games, there will be dances, there will be broken hearts, and scores to settle, but one thing that will never change is the group of friends at your side. Through the thick and the thin they will stick together, and somehow things will turn out right. They always do.

It is said this will be a year to remember, and maybe it will. It all depends on how you present yourself to your peers and mentors. Show them you're not afraid to be who you truly are, and perhaps you will make it out in one piece. Be careful how you dress, be careful how you speak, and most of all, be careful how you act. Who you are inside has never mattered before, so don't act like it will begin to matter now. These days it's all about being superficial and sticking to what you know. Don't change, because change won't be accepted. It defies everything already known.

In a time of sock hops and the American Bandstand, a time when being cool means everything, just remember that
grease is the word.
It always has been, and it always will be.

  Okay, so first things first, I'm new to this whole Grease-on-lj thing, even if I am an LJ oldie (well-ish, I've been here since 2004 now), so if I make mistakes please point them out to me.

As far as I can tell, there is no one tremendously active overriding community for fans of the movie and musical Grease. If one exists, then I've missed it because it doesn't have Grease or Pink Ladies or T-Birds or something immediately obvious in the title. If thats the case comment me and tell me would you? Thanks.

So my proposal is that we start again if there is interst. i want to get a community up and running on this and I think there are so many things that could go into that if people wanted to give ideas. If you're interested, take the poll below, suggest anything you wanting the comments and i'll see what i can do to try and create something where the 420 users who've listed Grease as an interest can go when they have a Grease craving. For anything, or something specific, whatever you people want. Fan fiction? Pictures? Ficathons? Contests? Icons? Stills? Polls? Let me know what you think, and pass this poll about if you think people might be interested in reading it.

Should there be a definitive Grease community on LiveJournal?

No, I've no interest in that.
0(0.0%)
No, I think the ones we have are fine.
0(0.0%)
Yes, it should be a fansite devoted to just the film and stage show.
0(0.0%)
Yes, this fansite should incorporate the actors as well as characters.
1(25.0%)
Yes, it should be a fan site with fan fiction and regular ficathons.
1(25.0%)
Yes, it should be a free for all as long as it's got a tenuous link to Grease.
2(50.0%)
Other. (Please Specify)

Oh, and I'm Louise by the way.. should have said that.

  Hi, I'm new to the net, so please have mercy, i'm not up on my netiquette...

There's a lot of intro posts here, so here's mine...

I'm 30, and have fallen madly in love with Grease and John Travolta (his early work, including Grease). The movie is so inspiring because of the timeline it was in, the atmosphere and the characters and storyline. And the music really gets me going all day long whenever I play it in my MP3 player or on my computer. My fave character is Danny. He's amazingly gorgeous.

  I made 15 avatars of my all-time favorite movie, Grease. A bunch more to come but this is all I could manage today. They don't have a group "feel" to them because I was specifically trying to learn techniques of coloring and brushes but hopefully they turned out okay.

BE SURE TO CHECK BACK BECAUSE I WILL BE MAKING MORE!

My name is April, username is bullpenbrat22, and I've loved Grease ever since seeing the movie back in junior high...back in 1977 when it first came out. When I was in the junior high choir, we did Grease both my 7th and 8th grade years. In 7th grade, I played Rizzo, and in 8th, I was Sandy, with my best friend Michael being Danny. Great times those were, and such awesome memories too!

To this day, I can still watch the movie and not get sick of it, and the same can be said of Grease 2.

My LJ is Friends Only, but if any of you would like to get to know me better and add me to your LJ, let me know. I will gladly add you in return :)

I've noticed a lot of members have added fictional schools to the directory and on their user info. I've had the high school from the movie Clueless added to my user info and I also want to add Rydell High School. I couldn't find it listed under Los Angeles, unless it's under another town/city name. But it seems it's not in the directory, so I guess I'll add it to the list, but I have some questions.

What city/town is Rydell set in? Is it a small town in CA or are we supposed to assume it's Los Angeles? Is it ever mentioned? Thanks!

As I'm watching Grease, I'm thinking of some of the music artists that have used Grease as inspiration for their videos.

Two came to mind.

Jordan Knight (formerly of NKOTB) - Give it to you.

OutKast - Roses

Can anyone think of any other artists that have used Grease as an inspiration in their music videos?

  Hey Everybody!

My name is Lyssa and Im 16. Live in Canada.
I Love Grease and I always have!

Right now im in an amature production of it. Marty cast 1 and Cha-Cha cast 2. Its so much fun! We preform in 3 weeks and I have to say:

the play version has a lot more pink lady/t-bird action than the movie! anybody else notice that? the movie is all kenickie, rizzo, danny, sandy but the play is barely any sandy, alot of rizzo, a lot of marty, alot of roger and doody and not so much kenickie, danny or frenchy.

huh. anyways

I LOVE GREASE

yeah.

  Hey! I'm super excited that I found this community! I LOVE grease so much! I went thru a phase a couple summers ago where I watched grease 3 times a day (once for the musical numbers, and twice for the movie) it was crazy. I love it so much!! I LOVE Jan! I want to play her in the musical someday! It's nice to meet you all!

Does anybody have any good pictures of Marty, from the movie?
I really want to be a pink lady, but I want to make my style more like hers.
I can't find any good pictures other than headshots, so if anybody knows where there are pictures, screencaps..anything would be appreciated :D
