musical theatre meme → [2/5] film adaptations → rent
I can’t control my destiny. I trust my soul, my only goal is just to be. There’s only now, there’s only here. Give in to love, or live in fear. No other path. No other way. No day but today.

  • several POC in the central cast
  • tons of LGBT representation
  • talks about how fucked up poor people are treated in bigger cities
  • informs about hiv/aids

in conclusion if you haven’t seen it already, rent is a must

You always said how lucky you were that we were all friends, but it was us, baby, who were the lucky ones.

Do not cross her. She’ll kick your ass and sue you for wasting her time afterwards. And win.


(NOT MY GIFS!)

If the characters from RENT were on tumblr
  • Collins: A social justice blogger with a slight stoner vibe. The kind who can calmly dissect ignorant fuckers with a well-worded and thorough argument.
  • Maureen: Also social justice, but the kind who is very impassioned and is occasionally a bit too rude. A few theater posts here and there.
  • Joanne: That one blogger who adds legal advice and support to posts about the police and your rights as a citizen just in case you get arrested.
  • Angel: Half fashion blog, half sassy advice blog. Treats her followers like they're her children. Has the most followers.
  • Mimi: Grunge aesthetic blogger. Lots of glitter and black and white pictures of naked women. Mostly pictures. Lots of selfies, of herself and of her with Roger.
  • Mark: Tons of gifs and caps of movies. Reviews of movies. Links to places you can illegally watch movies. Most likely to post about his day and to put up pictures of the gang all together.
  • Roger: Reblogs mostly music as well as putting up some of his own original music. Occasionally reblogs some pictures from the others. Most of his followers are there for his snarky and hilarious documentation of stupid things Mark does.
  • Benny: Has been inactive since he married Allison, although he did put up a memorial post when Evita the Akita died.
