Hey, um, @marie-isidore, @animaniacal, and @takarasienne (which, sorry for the random tagging-you-in-a-post)… and I guess anybody else who is more Takarazuka-aware than I am? (which, tbh, is a lot of people).
As some of you know, I’ve been trying to work out a way to show the recent “Nobunaga” production to a class (who do not speak Japanese). Thus far, I’ve gotten some very helpful advice about getting a subtitle file to work with the video file… but have run into the problem that I don’t have access to equipment to work with a BluRay, and region codes mean that a DVD won’t work either (this is the very short version).
However!! Enough of the class is interested enough to watch the BluRay without subtitles, which is pretty cool. The thing is, in order to do that, I’d like to have a really detailed synopsis that I can distribute (you know, kind of like for opera, when it’s all dramatic singing in a foreign language and so people need to read an explanation of what-all is going on).
Do any of you know if such a thing exists for “Nobunaga”?
The KKK is marching downtown on my campus. I’m so afraid for the people in this community right now. I am so disgusted and angry and upset. I’m in tears again. People that I care about are in danger. My friend is supposed to be walking home from work right now and his life could be in legitimate danger.
If you voted for Trump, I don’t trust you, I don’t want to speak to you, I don’t want your explanations. You did this to us. You’ve thrown us to the wolves. And you sure as fuck don’t get to complain when they eventually come for you too.
