Annie Clark (AKA St. Vincent) just shared this on Instagram with the note “Rad. And, ditto.”
I love her.
UNPOPULAR OPINION ALERT
I just don’t think this is funny. I’ve seen it re-blogged SO many times at this point and I’m kind of disappointed. Every day I see people mocking the idea of “no homo” (and rightfully so, that shit is ludicrous) and yet, when a straight man comes along, who’s comfortable enough in his friendships with other straight men to be fun and supportive and not care who’s looking, the next logical thing is to call him a “girlfriend?”
If you want the “no homo” trend to die let’s try not mocking* the men who feel comfortable and at ease in platonic relationships with other men.
*Please don’t message me saying “It’s not mocking, it’s not like being someone’s girlfriend is a bad thing!” Yes. I know it’s not a bad thing, but that’s hardly the point and we all know it.
This is so incredibly overdue. Apologies. I saw If/Then in DC back in December and I promised a few people (namely darlinginmyway) that I would share thoughts, and I never got around to it. Suffice it to say, I suck.
Without further ado (because isn’t four months enough ado) here are my handful of thoughts:
-I loved it. It’s fun. I had fun.
-Idina (obviously) still has it, spoiler alert: so does Anthony Rapp.
-It was really awesome, and honestly sort of inspiring, to see Idina Menzel and Anthony Rapp onstage together.
-LaChanze, of course, is something of a master class in performance unto herself. She absolutely does not disappoint.
-My favorite ensemble member was Ann Sanders — if you see the show, watch out for her. She’s got such an awesome, big, pretty voice.
-Cautionary note: I’m not sure how much you all know about the plot. I will avoid giving away any details beyond this — it’s really sort of two stories in one, and that can be a little confusing at first, so you really have to pay close attention at the very beginning. As things progress you begin to realize the cues (for example, different nicknames) and it makes it easier to follow the two stories.
-Random fun note: The night I saw the show, the former Mr. Sutton Foster, Christian Borle was in audience, and EVERYONE knew it. (A woman next to me in line for the restroom said to me “I’ve never seen that show Smash, but I heard one of the guys from it is here tonight.)
Overall, I recommend seeing it, if you can. The songs are fun and in some cases a little risque and the cast is obviously great. Let me know if any of you get to see it!
I am applying to jobs in another state. My partner and I are planning the move. Tentatively, the sooner one of us gets a job, the sooner we’ll move to that state. (In other words, if said job stated “We need you here by June 1 - we would be there by June 1.) If neither of us has a job by August, we’ll likely just move in September or October regardless.
Question: In my cover letter, should I mention the fact that the state in the address on my resume is far away from the state in which I am applying? Or just leave it alone entirely?
