Core Beliefs Edit
Julie Andrews is primarily a queen, but also a goddess. She is the Sound of Music in Humanoid form. "Julieists" are devoted to educating others about Julieism. Julieists believe that Julie Andrews is the most talented singer and actress in the universe, and that the very idea of her making a bad movie, musical, play, show, song, concert or book is inconceivable. Julieists mainly admire her for her voice and optimism, and also her charm, refinement, and perfect diction.
Julieism is dedicated to the life and legacy of Dame Julie Andrews, and to the characteristics and values she embodies. These include, but are not limited to, clarity, honesty, giving to others, perseverence, selflessness, self improvement, and joy.
Julieism was first established in December 2009 by the members of a sacred forum called Julie Andrews Online. It was established in honor of Dame Julie Andrews. Singer, Actress, Mother, Grandmother, Rolemodel, Idol, Friend, Flower Girl, Nun, Nanny, Queen.

- Julieization (same as civilization, but Julie-style)
- Julename/Julenick (your JAO username)
- Julieverse (Everything that's Julie!)
- Chum (frequently used to describe a best friend)
- To Julieite
(turning something ordinary in your everyday life into something Julie-related, eg: sticking Julie photos all over your schoolbooks ) ( I Julieite, you Julieite, he/she Julieites,...)
- To Julieize
(to convert someone to Julieism, teach someone about the Julieism-culture) (I Julieize, you Julieize, he/she Julieizes,...)

- Oh, Knickers
- Oh, cripes
Deities and other God(desses) Edit
When you're a Julieist, you're also allowed to admire all people related to Dame Julie Andrews...consisting mostly in lusting after her leading men. Notice that it's ok to be unsure whether you want to be Julie Andrews so you can snog Christopher Plummer, James Garner, Hector Elizondo, Omar Sharif, Paul Newman, etc etc etc, or if you want to be one of her leading men so you can snog Julie.
You shall also pay respect to people who openly admire Julie or say great things about her.
You shall despise and gossip and talk nasty about everyone who has nasty things to say about Julie Andrews, you shall also provide them with a list of some good shrinks, as these people most certainly need professional help. Alternatively, you can give them a ripped up note that is impossible to read, and instruct them to throw it in their fireplace. In due time, after the wind has changed, they will probably learn their place.
Gods and Goddesses:Edit
Carol BurnettEditCarol Creighton Burnett (born April 26, 1933), a chum of our Dame, is an American actress, comedienne, singer, dancer and writer. Burnett started her career in New York. After becoming a hit on Broadway, she debuted on television. After successful appearances on The Garry Moore Show, Carol moved to Los Angeles and began an eleven-year run on the The Carol Burnett Show which was aired on CBS television from 1967 to 1978. With roots in vaudeville, The Carol Burnett Show was a variety show combining comedy sketches, song, and dance. The comedy sketches ranged from movie parodies to character pieces which featured the many talents of Burnett herself who created and played several well-known and distinctive characters. Her notable appearences with our Dame include "Julie and Carol at Carnegie Hall", "Julie and Carol at Lincoln Center", and the Kennedy Center Honours. When you're a Juliest you have to admire and pay your respect to Carol Burnett, who is the Dame's best friend.
Dick Van DykeEdit
Richard Wayne “Dick” Van Dyke (born December 13, 1925) is an American actor, comedian, writer, and producer with a career spanning six decades. He is best known for his starring roles in the films Bye Bye Birdie, Mary Poppins, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and the television series The Dick Van Dyke Show and Diagnosis Murder. Van Dyke was cast in two roles as the chimney sweep Bert and the chairman of the bank in Walt Disney's Mary Poppins (1964). To film his scenes as the chairman, he was heavily costumed to look much older, and was credited in that role as "Nackvid Keyd" (at the end of the credits, the letters unscramble into "Dick Van Dyke"). Van Dyke's attempt at a cockney accent was cited as one of the worst film accents in a 2003 poll by Empire magazine. Mary Poppins was nonetheless successful upon release and its enduring appeal has made it one of the most famous films in cinematic history.
Christopher Plummer, CC (born December 13, 1929) is a Canadian theatre, film and television actor. In a career that spans over five decades and includes substantial roles in film, television, and theatre, Plummer is perhaps best known for the role of Captain Georg von Trapp in The Sound of Music. His most recent film roles include the Disney–Pixar 2009 film Up as Charles Muntz, the Shane Acker production 9 as 1 and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus as Doctor Parnassus. Christopher Plummer intensely disliked working on The Sound Of Music. He's been known to refer to it as "The Sound of Mucus" and likened working with Julie Andrews to "being hit over the head with a big Valentine's Day card, every day." Nontheless, he and Andrews have remained close friends ever since. Julie and Chris were reunited once again on sceen in the 2001 film, On Golden Pond, where they play the part of Husband and Wife.
James Garner (born April 7, 1928) is an American film and television actor. He has starred in several television series spanning a career of more than five decades. These included his roles as Bret Maverick, in the popular 1950s western-comedy series, Maverick; Jim Rockford, in the popular 1970s detective drama, The Rockford Files; and the father of Katey Sagal's character on 8 Simple Rules following the death of John Ritter. He has starred in dozens of movies, including The Great Escape (1963) with Steve McQueen; Paddy Chayefsky's The Americanization of Emily (1964) as Lieutenant Commander Charlie Madison and Blake Edwards' Victor Victoria (1982) as King Marchand, both with Julie Andrews; and Murphy's Romance (1985) with Sally Field, for which he received an Academy Award nomination.

Maria Von TrappEdit
Dr. Sarah Louise ShermanEdit
Gertie was an English speaking goddess worshiped primarily in the West End and on Broadway. Although she couldn't really sing, dance, or act very well, she nonetheless was magical on stage. She had the insolant confidence, and elusive, magical sophistication that can make mannerisms into style. After her death in 1952, her cult diminished until it was absorbed into the newly emerging Julieism in 1968, when Julie, not yet Dame, took on her persona in the motion picture "STAR!" dir: Robt. Wise, 20th Century Fox.

After Life Edit
If you follow the rules and carry out the rituals of this religion successfully, you will be gifted with an authentic autographed picture of the great Julie, and spend your afterlife in a peaceful little cottage on a cloud in the sky. This place can alternatively be called Juland.
In case of emergencyEdit
- This house will consist of soft cloud floors, whereby placing too much intentional pressure will cause you to fall through. Simply grab one of the many umbrellas situated underneath the cloud and they will magically float you back down to the doorstep of your cottage. Interior decoration of any kind can be added by reaching into the bottomless carpetbag in the hall.
- The bedroom has walls covered with chalk drawings all over the walls and celling. To enter any of the drawings, touch it lightly and think, wink, then double blink. Jump forward and you will be sucked into the drawing. You will automatically be clothed in the appropriate attire according to the location in the drawing. To exit, perform the same actions that you used to get in, but in reverse. You will end up in the exact position you were standing before you entered the painting.
Put on your Sunday ClothesEdit
- The walk-in wardrobe contains all the clothes and costumes that Julie Andrews have ever worn. This includes a full selection of scarves, jewellery, hats and bags. Any other clothes desired can be magically conjoured up by opening a seperate smaller wardrobe in the corner. Any clothes desired will appear when it is opened. Any clothes you detest can be put into this wardrobe and it will disappear when the door is closed.
- There is a library room in the house that has comfy sofas and lounge chairs.(But who needs those with cloud floors?) It is filled with a bookcase housing the complete written works of Julie Andrews. The DVD shelves hold a complete set of all of Julie Andrews movies, in all the special aniversary editions. The television set has multiple channels showing the Julie Andrews Hour, her concerts and all of her interviews to date. There is a complete in-built guide where you can select which interview/show you want to watch.
- The kitchen has cabinets containing endless boxes of PG Tips Tea and Chunky Peanut Butter. Any additional groceries/appliance needed can be pulled out from the bottomless brown paper bag on the counter. Simply reach in and think of the item you want, then pull it out. The centrepiece of the dining table is a jar of cookies. Upon close inspection, the cookies are found to be inedible, and indeeed, even unbreakable. They are merely there as decoration. If one is smart enough to lift up the jar, the label at the bottom reads "WARNING: Dangerous. Please do not attempt to eat, break, or use as frisbees".
The Sound of MusicEdit
- Simply state the name of a Julie song and snap your fingers. The song will play automatically and can be heard throughout the whole house at just the right volume. In a similar way, one can play a whole series of songs by adding "Soundtrack" or "Recording" to the name of the respective album/soundtrack/recording. This system is voice controlled, so if you want to pause or stop listening, simply call out "Pause" or "Stop" and snap your fingers.
Well Begun is Half DoneEdit
- If you've made a mess of things. Simply say in a commanding voice "Spit-Spot!" and snap your fingers twice. Any subsequent snap of our fingers directed to the selected portion of the room will result in automatic tidying. Snap fingers thrice to end the command. Excessive snapping in a short period of time may cause things to get out of control. Simply end the command or call out "That will be Quite enough!" All tidying will stop immediately.(note that this does not end the command. It only stops it momentarily until you snap your fingers again)
Putting it TogetherEdit
- You will never be lonely in Juland. Friends are a cloud away--Literally. Simply pick up the umbrella in the stand that has a Parrot head(others will only transport you back home, not out of home), and open it, with your destination it mind, holding on tight. The umbrella will fly you wherever you wish, with added witty commentary on the way by the Parrot head. To turn off this function, grip the parrot beak closed as you fly.
If, however, you disrespect Julieism by not following the rules, you will be shunned to Julie Hell, a gazebo surrounded by blazing standing set lights that make the sound of raspberries non-stop. Ailments that will befall you include a loss of voice and a raspy throat. There will be sudden helicoper drafts that will flatten you to the stone floor of the gazebo.

Who is Julie Andrews? Edit
For a complete history, read Here.
In a small English town, nineteen thirty-five,
Years before the hills were even alive.
On the first morn of October, autumn was bold.
And there was great happiness in the Welles' household
A brand new daughter had joined their throng.
Though not yet known, she was full of song.
As she grew, she would surprise all,
And soon would be hearing the stage's call.
An amazing discovery in the midst of war's tumult;
Thus young girl's voice was that of an adult!
Julie Andrews was now a star,
And everyone who heard her knew she would go far.
From the Queen and every audience, the applause was the same.
All over Great Britain, you could hear her fans claim;
Her performances brought them great joy.
And soon she Broadway wanted to employ.
In fifty-four, to New York she would go;
Across the Atlantic and be the light of the show!
From "The Boyfriend" to "My Fair Lady," she found great success.
And everyone who heard her knew she had been blessed.
On television specials, her name was soon found.
From "High Tor" to "Cinderella," she was all around.
In sixty-two, came an offer from Disney himself;
They were pulling the story of "Mary Poppins" from the shelf.
The books would be a movie with who as the star?
But Julie Andrews-the fair rose from England a far.
It would be a new experience, but deserving was she.
That November, a baby girl added to her glee.
Filming of the movie would begin the following year.
"Mary Poppins" would be a classic, drawing fans far and near.
That nanny was talented, clever and sweet.
She expressed "A Spoon Full of Sugar" as being quite a treat.
Dick, as Bert, was charming, the children were precocious,
And enduring was the song of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!"
She would later be rewarded, for there would be a day,
When a golden Oscar statuette would come her way.
After a grand film debut,
She would go down in history, everyone knew.
Next, a straight dramatic role, she would try,
And show that she could make any film genre fly
Her character, Emily Barham, was tough and keen,
And her chemistry with Charlie was clearly seen.
This only happens with the very best cast,
And the screen pair of Julie and Jimmy would last.
Her next project would bring her voice to all,
Even from atop the mountains tall.
Maria von Trapp, was her characters name.
She and that story would live on in fame.
A nanny-type figure she played once again;
A nun who was faithful. Amen!
She lead seven children in memorable song,
And persuaded their father to sing along.
A happy wedding day would soon come,
And their voices heard by many and then some.
Concluding the picture, with the Captain in lead,
The family all together was a happy ending indeed.
Over the years, she has held her place;
The silver screen, she continues to grace.
From musicals and concerts to drama,
Through happiness, heartache and trauma;
Her name still appears in entertainment today.
And in May of Two Thousand, there came a great "Hooray!"
It was then that this legend was made a Dame.
A great honor? Yes, but she is still the same;
The talented beauty who we still know
As a lady who always lights up the show.
Aside from a star on stage and screen,
Her name in children's books can be seen.
Through such characters as "Dumpy" and "Bo," she also has fans.
Ask a crowd, "Who loves her?" and find a sea of hands.
Her autobiography will be cherished, every page.
In Hollywood, there is now "The Julie Andrews Stage."
"The Princess Diaries" brought her even more praise,
And we will keep seeing her many more days.
As Eloise's nanny, with her drink in hand,
And as Queen Clarisse, returning to her homeland.
We will also hear her voice in the sequels to "Shrek."
In one way or another, she will still be on deck.
In movies, in books and on stage, too.
-E. Phinney, Fan of Julie Andrews
Why her? Edit
Why not her? She is Practically Perfect in every way! Julie Andrews (or Jools for short) is a Queen!
How often do I have to practise Julieism? Edit
Every single day of your life until you are taken away to your little cloud in the sky.
Should I tell others about this? Edit
Of course!! SPREAD THE WORD OF JULIEISM! because we love her!!!!! Convert anyone you can into Julieism.
Can I practice Julieism as well as another religion? Edit
Although Julieism is encouraged to be your true devotion, other religions can be practised alongside Julieism. Julieism is a very flexible religion that is open to a diverse range of people, whether they are Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Christopher Plummerists , etc. This is a very accepting community and everyone is welcome. Julieists are open to new ideas, and will always take suggestions to make this religion the best one possible.
Is this an exclusive religion or can anyone join? Edit
You MUST be a fan of Julie Andrews to join and have an understanding of the importance of the Julieism values to oneself and to mankind as a whole. If you do not abide by this, then we must force you out of the religion and you will never live on that beautiful little cloud in the sky.
