Interests
Happy Barricade Days, everyone!  

I know I haven't been on here much in the past few months, and I probably won't be around much in the next few months either, because my dissertation is in high gear now, and that shit is due in March, so I've gotta get working!  I just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone for all their lovely comments and well-wishes, and I only wish I had time to chat with every one of you!!  I hope to post a few little pieces of art tomorrow in honor of the Les Mis holiday, so keep an eye out for that...

Also, completely off-topic, but I just wanted to take a moment and put in a word for a show that blew my mind last week: the "Pippin" revival on Broadway.  For any of you who might be visiting the NYC area soon, oh my GOD, go see this show!  For those of you already in the NYC area, WHATTHEHELLAREYOUWAITINGFOR, GO SEE THIS SHOW NOW!!!  Go see it before it wins all the Tonys and you can't get a damn seat!  Whew, glad I got that out of my system.  But seriously, oh my God, what a wonderful show, fabulous staging, fabulous orchestrations, fabulous casting, and fabulous acrobatics!  It's really stuff you can't see anywhere else on Broadway right now, unique and beautiful.  I'm not the hugest fan of the original show itself (not the hugest fan of Stephen Schwartz in general, got to admit), but this stuff is so beyond that.  It's spectacle, it's something for everyone, it's larger than life, and it surpasses its own source material (in fact, it made me actually give a shit about the source material...).  In all the Broadway shows I've ever been to, I've never seen an audience go nuts for anything like this--whooping and hollering like a rock concert!  (Also, I'm not into women, but just thought I should point out that yes, Patina Miller is a sex goddess.  :drool: )  So yeah, there's my recommendation, but I should also warn you that this production is like a roller coaster--as soon as my husband and I came out, we were like 'again, again!'  So yeah, it may be addictive...

Right, so your fanart is sort of the best thing ever. Just saying because it's always nice to be reminded of that. :)

I'm already pretty enh about the surge in fan happenings for Les Mis - if that makes me a terrible person, so be it - but I'm so glad it's got you posting again! I miss good old Frenchboys.net and, more specifically since most of the hosted sites still existed, the old Cafe.
