this was me--and many more girls on this board, I bet--FOR REAL.
ROCK n' ROLL EULOGY (sounds KILLER!)
Helen Campbell, the new kid on the block. Like many a fresh face in the high school hallway, Helen longs to be part of the in crowd. Of course the popular girls only glance her way long enough to find things to make fun of, cause popular girls are bitches like that. So Helen finds herself drawn to the Rock & Roll Girls, a trio of tight clothes wearing, cigarette smoking, jive talking, switchblade toting sisters who Helen spies while staring aimlessly out of the classroom window. She has a little more luck with the bad girls; I mean, they make fun of her too, but take a shine to our somewhat awkward heroine and provide her with her first glimpse of the evil powers of rock and roll. Being the eager sort, Helen's whole world is turned upside down by what she hears. She's tapping her pencil to a different beat and inquiring about exactly what it takes to be a Rock & Roll Girl. After effectively making it to the first base of juvenile delinquency by giving herself a bad girl makeover, a la that scene in Grease where Olivia Newton John trades in her poodle skirt for black spandex pants, [yes!] Helen sneaks out of her house while her parents sleep to dance and throw the devil horns until the wee hours of the morning. When she caps that adventure off with a visit to the local tattoo parlor for her final initiation rite, you know our girl's scored a hellbound homerun. Ah, but the life of a Hellcat isn't all fun and games and Helen Marie Campbell, like every wayward teen, must learn a lesson and pay an ultimate price. Which she ultimately does...
