(only reason i made these)

anonymous asked:

(hmm i may be missing the point entirely but dave often transposes pieces up a fourth interval for alto/sopranos from tenors/bass songs and vice versa so i dont think shoba singing the pacific means it has to be sung by an alto/soprano so it could still be sung by ishamel? that being said, i haven't read the novel in its entirety and i don't really know how the pacific fits in so it still could be a mate...(sorry if this is irrelevant))

Ahh don’t worry at all about missing the point or being irrelevant, that post didn’t really end up going to a specific point. Plus the transposing issue is completely true, I agree, and Shoba singing it doesn’t guarantee anything.

The only reason I made the presumption the song is intended to be sung by an alto/sop is that Dave specifically chose Shoba to be the first to “present it”, rather than chosing a bari/tenor to do so – and that I’d have thought on first presenting it you’d probably want it to be presented similarly to how you see it ending up in the show? But there could be other reasons and I could definitely be wrong

And yeah, the ‘who sings what’ issue I’m in all honestly very lost about. We just don’t know enough about how the musical Works yet for anyone to not be lost (I assume? If anyone’s not lost please… let me know). Even if I was correct and The Pacific is sung by an alto/sop, that doesn’t discount Ishmael from being the one singing it because of the multi-Ishmael issue (that at least in the early workshop run, multiple actors both male and female, are doubling as Ishmael along with another character).  I was trying to guess who was singing it based on the content of the song, which is why I was confused that the content didn’t really line up with the content of that chapter

I think, between Dave’s general style of shows, and the ambiguity of the book, we’re potentially in for another show where there are some alternative/ambiguous elements in how the characters are presented. Which is great, except at this early stage I keep going in circles trying to figure out anything concrete

I mean, not that I think it’ll be quite On That Level, but we’re all still trying to understand Ghost Quartet after multiple years and a full live album after all

Every day I handle more money than I will ever make. Every day.

At the start of my employment, my boss showed me videos of people stealing, and we both had a chuckle about it. How silly they were! There was a camera overhead, and it’s not to watch the shoppers. See, we can’t actually stop shoplifters. They get away with it maybe nine out of ten times. But we, who are watched and tallied and witnessed? We are always caught.

At first it was hard to hold one hundred dollars bills. An amount I had never seen before. An amount that didn’t exist in my household. It’s normal now. Here is something that is not for me.

“What the hell, I’ll take another,” says the man, pondering our 200 dollar watches. What the hell. Total comes to 580 and not even a flinch in his face. I have been working for 11 hours today and made only 110 dollars. It will go to my rent. Today I work for free, it feels. When I get my check, I will have 35 dollars left for food and saving.

The six hundreds he hands me go into the cash register. For a moment, I imagine having money. Then I put it away, counting out his change.

I know for a fact we sell our products for double what they are worth. That I could be making commission. That they could hand me those 580 dollars and change my life and not even mark the difference in their checkbooks. He’s not the only sale they make today, but I am the reason they made it. He’s not the only one spending 600 dollars, but if I hadn’t spent two hours with him telling me about his life, he wouldn’t have spent any. I go home. I don’t own a watch.

I have watched and rewatched a video on how to make salmon four ways. My shopping list is always the same. Pasta. Rice. Tuna. If I can afford butter it was a good week. I dream of the world I will never walk in, where I can throw the best fish fillet in the cart with a shrug. I hold hundreds in my hand and look up at the camera. I put them under the cash drawer.

I go to work. I scrap together my savings. I eat my bowl of rice slowly. My manager takes a paid week off from work just for his birthday. He owns a yacht. 

I’m not worth the cost of a watch.
