Hamilton is put on in Seattle and Frasier and Niles have to deal with the fact that it's the hottest show in town - and it's educational theatre - but it's *shudder* hiphop.
Oh, God…. they would go through so many stages with that musical: intrigue combined with distaste about the concept —> disdain because they’d be determined to look down on something so popular and therefore common —> “Our entire set is talking about it. We must get tickets!” —> neither of them really liking it but pretending to in front of each other until they both realize the other is faking it and giving up.
Or maybe they would like it but would pretend not to because they’d still consider it beneath them?
I'm wondering about your thoughts on the following statement Carrie Fisher gave about Harrison Ford. This statement was not included in the audiobook version. I have been baffled by it because it seems so contradictory to the close relations they've had over the years, "He’s an extremely witty man and someone who seems more comfortable with others than he is, or ever was, with me. Maybe I make him nervous. Maybe I talk so much he c
That’s weird that it is not included in the audiobook. It is in the beginning chapter of “forty years on” in the digital version if you are curious. It includes another paragraph that is not in the audiobook either.
As to your question, becketts and I were always under the impression that Carrie was closer to Melissa than Harrison and that’s the only reason why Carrie and Harrison kept in close contact over the years. Melissa and Carrie continued to have a close relationship after she and Harrison divorced (evidenced by Carrie mentioning her on her old blog and vacations they took together, etc), while there’s not a lot that shows Harrison and Carrie had as much personal interaction after Harrison and Melissa broke up. Additionally, if I had to guess based on what we know of his personality, Carrie probably made him nervous a bit, which may have not been a great mix since he seems so guarded and private. Alternatively, Carrie could have just been reading into the situation too much as she did 40+ years ago.
Do you think that ace symbol tattoo is a good idea? I have always wanted a tattoo but never thought of what it could be and now, since I'm ace, this might be a good chance. Even if I decide to change my label some day, I'm pretty sure it would still look good tho without a meaning.
I might not be the best person to ask, I’m a little biased, but my personal stance on tattoos is to….get them, honestly. Especially if they look cool. Even if all they do is look cool. I like having physical proof on my body of who I am and who I have been and what’s been important to me and where I’ve been at various stages in my life, even if those things change later on. It’s like a roadmap of my life in a medium that nobody can take away from me, so that’s the philosophy I bring to this answer.
What did you think of Frasier/Kate? I actually think they were entertaining and much better matched than I would have expected
I loved them!! I know Kate is really divisive, but I thought she was one of Frasier’s best relationships and also one of the best station manager characters/storylines. I like that like Lilith, she was as smart or smarter than him and challenged him. They had really nice chemistry.
i overheard two sophomore boys in the parking lot today and one asked "how many times have you seen the 2005 pride and prejudice?" and the other replied "i watched it YESTERDAY trevor, i LIVE for the 2005 pride and prejudice" and i just thought u would appreciate this
How would you deal with parents who literally force you to get a boyfriend? I once as a joke told them that they don't even have to expect grandchildren because I'll live alone with cats and they were like: don't even try (that sounded like a threat tbh). I want children myself (which means that's the only reason I might have sex) but they're literally pressuring me 'cause I have never had a boyfriend while others have had at least a few at my age (19).
I’d either ignore them or fake one. It really depends in what ways they force you. If they force you by like pressuring with bullshit comments, that’s an annoying family thing that can be ignored. If they force you like set up dares for you, I’d be like this is my internet friend who is now my boyfriend.
For your consideration - Bi Daphne in the lesbian Niles storyline having issues with her mother because she brushed away her bisexuality as 'a phase' and showed signs of being homophobic towards her previous relationships with women. Their storyline in the show would therefore revolve around Niles being there for Daphne as she prepares to meet with her mother, and the beauty of her mother coming to accept Daphne and coming to love both her and Niles - pretentiouscrane
PLEASE this is so good, and would go so perfectly with the plot where Daphne’s mom first came to town [redacted specific spoilers because you haven’t watched yet]. It would be such a great added dimension to Daphne’s messed up relationship with her mother, especially the positive aspect as their relationship gets a bit better and healthier. :’)
