It’s a work in progress, but I’m curating a woodland goth playlist. I recommend playing on shuffle. 🎡

Usually Spotify Autoplay makes me grouchy but it turns out when I listen to goth music it suggests more goth music so I’m very happy with its current suggestion of 10:15 on a Saturday Night. (Sorry The Cure, You Are Goth.) 🎡

πŸ”–πŸŽ΅πŸŽ­πŸΏ Read Judas Christ Superstar: Easter thoughts on being just (Reader) by Katie Prout.

This piece is excellent. JCS is an extremely important show to my family as well. I have a lot more thoughts about it and if I feel up to it, I’ll write them up later.

🎭🎡 Spending my Tues night building an audition repertoire, as one does.

  • The Party’s Over
  • A Trip to the Library
  • Another Hundred People
  • Astonishing
  • Schroeder
  • Let It Go
  • Worst Pies in London
  • Last Midnight
  • Everybody Loves Louis
  • I’m Going Back

& 2 opera

🍿🎭🎡 Watched Anything Goes.

Sutton Foster is my hero. Wish I could get to NYC to see her in The Music Man. Everybody in this production was great. I need to watch more musicals because they always make me so happy.

πŸ”–πŸŽ΅ Read β€œThe Queerest of the Queer”: Listening to Garbage in the Nineties (Catapult) by Niko Stratis.

I enjoy Garbage so much and I appreciate this meditation on what Shirley Manson signifies about gender.

I haven’t seen ENCANTO but I gather Luisa is the middle sister and yet her song is the anthem of eldest daughters the world over. 🍿🎡

🎡 Had to skip “Moonlight Sonata” on the Spotify Dark Academia Classical playlist because belting “Schroeder” at the top of my lungs is not actually conducive to getting work done.

🎡 I’m listening to the full album of Lady Gaga’s BORN THIS WAY for the first time, and I’m a little embarrassed by coming to her this late, given her status as the spiritual successor to Madonna, whom I have adored since 1984.

πŸ”– Read Two Musicals on the Perils of Aging. 🎡🎭

We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today.
