True, however I'll just point out that it's not AGAINST any rules to use texts from the prescribed list.. however it is frowned on.

Hey, does anyone know any other texts for Changing Worlds? I was thinking Kate & Leopold (you know, the movie) and the film clip for smashing pumpkins 'tonight, tonight'...but I'm not too sure if i've quite got the idea.

If u can use another song, Drive by Incubus is a really good one for changing self..
Pleasantville is a great easy movie to use.
The book we are doing is My Place by Sally Morgan.
If that helps.. if not sorry...
