notwithstanding the foregoing

in any given set, i will like the most ridiculous or surreal example. i like bright colors and shiny things. i do off-broadway theater, and think about it often. also slightly obsessed with television, music, feminism, knitting, politics. and hello kitty.

Ha. Yes. I was mostly quoting my heavily Socialist boss. Also the unions would have issues with me hiring robot-actors unless there was a legit artistic reason.

Isn’t an all-robot play a legit artistic reason in and of itself? Honestly kind of surprised there’s never been an all-robot Hamlet, you know? (Or I can’t find any evidence of an all-robot Hamlet anyway.)

There was a robot-Hedda Gabler, (by Liz Meriwether! Of New Girl fame!) but I don’t think it was with actual robots, just actors playing robots in tin foil costumes.

Depending on the theater or the producer, and depending on who was voicing the robots, I really would probably need a union concession for all-robot-Hamlet. But I am super into it. Robot Hamlet, go!

Oh my goodness it looks like those robots where remote-controlled and wheeled themselves around stage! Which is pretty awesome. One step further would be to automate the whole thing and generate their voices from the script rather than having actors voice them.

I’m thinking Wicked but with Elphaba played by the Siri voice and trust me it is amazing in my mind.

I’m in. The Tony award is just waiting for us.

Kisses will shrink me
in every way possible.
I’m miniscule, looking
for the tasseled loafers
of plaid, erotic dreams.
I wanna be in the oven
like all women, straight
bubblin’ over gout and
varicose veins. Somewhere
a doomed geezer curls
’round a bomb, pictures
my ample bosom settling
for his anorectic hands.

HEY HEY HEY HEYYYYYYYY MY FAVORITE QUEER DRUNK ASSHOLE POET TURNED 450 TODAY (and let me tell you, there is a lot of competition for the title “favorite queer drunk asshole poet”)

BUT as we all know, there is some controversy over who ACTUALLY wrote shakespeare’s plays!

so in order to mark this SERIOUS and LEGITIMATE issue, i have compiled the most likely theories in this comprehensive list:

  • in julius caesar, cassius says, “this is my birthday; on this very day cassius was born.” on that same day, cassius DIES. guess who else was not only born on april 23, but died april 23?? that’s right, shakespeare. english playwright? or ancient roman ghost bent on revenge? YOU BE THE JUDGE.
  • shakespeare married a woman called anne hathaway. BATMAN ALSO MARRIED ANNE HATHAWAY. have you ever seen shakespeare and batman in the same place at the same time??????
  • lived in london? totally encountered prostitutes several times? probably spoke english? william shakespeare……. or JACK THE RIPPER
  • uh, excuse me, an uneducated glovemaker’s son couldn’t possibly have written the 38 works of art attributed to shakespeare. please consider instead this picture of a cat pushing another cat in a shopping cart. you’re welcome.
  • ””“”“”“”“”“president obama????”“”“”“”“” more like PRESIDENT WILLIAMSHAKESPOBAMA. wake UP, america
  • aliens.
  • ME I’M WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE I HAVE BEEN SHAKESPEARE ALL ALONG AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA YOU FOOLS YOU IGNORANT FOOLS

#happy 450th you old loser i hope you’re banging kit marlowe in heaven

I can’t imagine why not.

(Actually, I’d love for you and the Big Boss (yes, that one, Liz) to be in a room and argue about economics and politics and the State of the (North) American Theater because that would be amazing and hilarious.)

(Also, I found my college thesis advisor’s twitter and he’s reading the Piketty book and I’m starting to be intrigued.)

I think Cap needs to add Beastie Boys to his list

I wrote that in a story!

I want this so hard.

always reblog the Manly Art of Knitting

The best part of all-staff meetings is when the big boss starts ranting about late stage hegemonic capitalism.

This is a completely sincere statement.

#*dies of emotion* #but what if molly was his companion once #and now he stops by for breakfast #and keeps commenting because it seems like every time #there’s another ginger kid #adn when he sees harry it’s like ha! #i knew they couldn’t all be ginger! #and molly doesn’t bother telling the doctor that harry isn’t hers #because he is after all one of her boys #and she loves him just as though he was a weasley (via dwcompanion)

those tags broke me a little inside
