Priceless. PRICELESS I TELL YOU.
…Hey Universe, just putting this out there. If you’d let me meet Ben sometime I swear I won’t melt into a puddle of fangirl. Because anyone who makes photobomb faces like this at the Oscars (behind U2 no less!) is someone I’d love to get to know. Just sayin’.
Confession that may surprise some people, but then again may not: Starchild in this clip is practically my spirit animal. I know some people find him ridiculously over the top, but I adore Adam Lambert’s voice, especially when he’s doing this kind of music. I was not a fan of his second album, but if his first one had been on tape (gasp! old woman alert there!), I would’ve destroyed it with overplay. (As it is, I shudder to think of actually looking at the play counts of certain songs in my iTunes.) I have seen the man in concert - I might post my Instagram of that, later - and while it was a fully scripted theater piece, the purity of his vocals is not something I can ever deny.
Have some upbeat loud grrrl-power today, Internet. I prefer this version to Gaga’s all. day. long.

My understanding (circa summer 2013) is that a performer can only get one double per week and gets the following day off if they do it, so there’s usually quite a few different faces between the early and late shows; I don’t know if that applies to swings, though.
I know that Debra Zalkind had occasionally appeared as a fortune-teller named Imogen but I don’t know if she’s done that recently, and never saw it firsthand so I can’t say how much like Annabella the part was. The allure of Manderley during the show has always been primarily the various Mans and Womans in Bar and their respective charms (Leopold on the piano, Calloway telling you about the dungeon, everything about Violet, etc.) but beyond that, no, no extracurricular marginalia of note at this point.
Does “gin” not qualify as a good reason…?
Or rye. Or bourbon. Sazeracs. Lulu’s Halfway House.
For those who may have blown off her hashtags (don’t ever blow off her hashtags because lol), mariafraser makes a phenomenal point about Oliver. He is wondrous. Also, if you’re there for early shows of doubles: Go find Rupert. Go. find. Rupert.
…but you better go to his party afterwards.
It is myself I mean: in whom I know, All the particulars of vice so grafted, That, when they shall be open’d, black Macbeth will seem as pure as snow
(And for anyone who’s wondering: staged, because Malcolm doesn’t have his tux jacket at this point in the show.)
For those who don’t know that an era of film before the 80s existed, I present to you The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer. Ever used the “You remind me of the babe?” quote from Labyrinth? This is the first movie it was used in, nearly 40 years prior. Sorry not sorry biased but Cary Grant beats David Bowie always.
Also, grown-up Shirley Temple + Myrna Loy + Cary Grant = priceless and one of my favorite chicken soup movies of all time.
You’re welcome, Internet!

Every once in awhile my art takes the shape of words instead of drawings or sculpture. This one’s an old one from over ten years ago, but I was reminded of it the other day. There’s still a lot of it I can relate to.
no i’m not dead i’m
just a little cockeyed in the soul
spinning somewhat out of control and
over and under and round again
i know i
fight for things i shouldn’t want or
want for things i shouldn’t have to fight for
but give me a little time and it
will all come back around
again no i’m
not in love i’m really just
in need and desperation
looking for someone to bolster my back
and untangle the knots i loop around myself
and ensure i
don’t create my own noose for
the cords are long and wound
around every single part
of who and what i am so i can only see
through one eye through the rope
with the rest of me obscured from the light
and a fearless trust in the simplicity
of a single cord when i see so many
becomes the guiding compass for
me to unweave my web and believe that underneath
i’ll be right side up again.
