Holy Shit

I was linked to this from a friend over Facebook. Have you ever encountered something that was just like a giant flaming neon arrow to something you've been searching for but haven't quite seen yet?

I feel like saying this. This This This. A thousand times this.

Your school's stupid, your school's bwaha

I've watched this five times in a row without blinking.

Doin' a post since it's my birthday, and I've posted for every birthday for the last ten years.

Not feeling very eloquent, because I am le tired, so take it away, boys:

It's HERE!

Opening night, bitches! Quite possibly the most pain-free show of my career. In spite of the whole making my assistant cry thing.

HOLY CRAP

Cee-Lo has accomplished the impossible. He made me like Gwyneth Paltrow.



THIS OWNS SO EFFING HARD.

A song for the day

I do enjoy Bon Iver, quite a lot. I know that he tends to get overhyped quite a bit, but I do think he deserves a lot of that praise.

For instance, this cover he did of "Come Talk to Me" by Peter Gabriel is one of the loveliest things I've heard in recent memory. You can get it here, it's number 23.

I like it. I think it's oddly prescient in light of this weekend's tragedy in Arizona, too.

2010

I will finish that meme, eventually. Things have been very quiet (almost too quiet) but I'm getting a lot of rest, and that's what matters. In a continuation of last year, I'm doing my 2010-wrap up, via music, courtesy of youtube, with a bit of something extra for the new year:

Not enough D: face in the world

So. Spiderman Musical.

We in the Theater School have all kind of unanimously reacted like this:



I mean, hey, the sets and costumes all look pretty cool. And Evan Rachel Wood is no longer attached (thank God). But still, I think our reaction is "WHY?"

(Of course, the answer is we've spent 52 goddamn million dollars and it WILL GO UP IF IT'S THE LAST THING WE EVER DO)

Mostly I'm skeptical. I think it's pretty unecessary, and the money, time, and talent could probably have been better spent elsewhere. But hey, if they were to pay me to paint something on that thing, you bet your ass I'd be all over it, so there you go.

I haven't listened to the score yet. I'm not sure that I will. I'm too afraid. But if it's anything like the song they did for Batman Forever, then it could probably sound pretty good. (Not for a MUSICAL mind you).



However, it still can't top the best superhero song ever:

the more things change...

Whenever the shenanigans of the world get me down, I remind myself that it's not really getting worse. It's always been like this.



Kind makes one a little hopeful, really. If we haven't managed to blow ourselves up yet...
