Your morning happiness: OK GO.

It’s an OK GO kind of morning.  Watching the POTUS statement on Ferguson, MO.  Will start posting afterward. [Read more...]

Your morning happiness: Children of Eden.

Your morning happiness today is a performance of the musical Children of Eden.  Stephen Schwartz is among the most famous composers in musical theater, noted for the blockbuster hit musicals Pippin, Godspell, Wicked, and others. Children of Eden, I think, is one of his best, but it’s flown under the radar over the years. It’s [Read More...]

Your Morning Happiness: What We Need Is A Montage! …and reluctantly, a cat.

Some funny clips in this vid, my fav being the Husky who is damn excited about a pile of leaves. The leaves must mimic the feeling of snow to the crazy dog, or the silly Husky is on cocaine! “It’s a helluva drug!” – Rick James The swiffer attacking puppy, and the two Huskies arguing [Read More...]

There’s homophobia even in opera. :(

As somebody who has done theater, musical theater, and opera at all levels from amateur to professional, I can personally assure you that the stereotype of gay people being in theater is…true.  It’s so true.  Theater is a welcoming place for gay people as a general rule.  It’s easier for them to come out there [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: Community songs.

Here are a couple songs from the show Community that I play some days to keep me in a good mood.  :) [Read more...]

Morning happiness: a blast from the musical past.

Doing all this youtube stuff has caused me to stumble back upon some of my old karaoke vids.  I miss doing this stuff.  Next conference I’m at, we all need to find a karaoke bar. [Read more...]

Your morning happiness: the Ballad of Booth.

This seems like an odd subject for a morning happiness, since it’s a song about an assassin, but it makes me happy.  Leave it to Stephen Sondheim to write a whole show about people who killed, or attempted to kill Presidents.  Leave it to Sondheim to give one of the most beautifully written pieces in [Read More...]
