i cannot with this musical

So I saw Geekenders’ Portal 2: The (Unauthorized) Musical the other day and I cannot get over how clever the song choices are.

Like. Of course GLaDOS is going to sing “I’m Alive.” And of course she gets “Poor Unfortunate Souls Test Subjects,” that maliciously-claiming-to-do-what’s-best-for-you attitude is right up her alley, as much as the fast-talking-salesman attitude of “Trouble” fits Cave Johnson perfectly. And Wheatley really fits the being-condescending-but-in-a-way-that-makes-me-seem-polite style of “Why Can’t The English Subjects.” And while I don’t know the context of “Suddenly Seymour” because I had a very frightening exposure to Audrey 2 as a child that I’m not entirely over yet, my wariness of that musical gave “Suddenly Wheatley” a surprisingly appropriate foreshadowing edge.

But the one that’s really sticking with me, and I really hope that Geekenders did this intentionally, is “If You Could See You.” Because the original context of that Cabaret song had my skin crawling the whole time, even before the other shoe dropped. It’s the Cabaret song that ends with “If you could see her through my eyes / she wouldn’t look Jewish at all.” It’s the one where the guy is dancing with his gorilla girlfriend and acting all sweet and loving the whole song through but at the last moment reveals the antisemitic piece of shit he truly is. And in the Portal 2 musical, it becomes the one where the guy is dancing with his assistant girlfriend and acting all sweet and loving the whole song through but at the last moment reveals the abusive piece of shit he truly is.

I really hope Geekenders were aware of the connections they were making there because that’s terrifyingly clever in its creepiness.

HEY THERE! *finger guns*

Have you ever found yourself wanting a metric ton of DAI music? Have you ever thought to yourself, aw man, DAI’s soundtrack was 15 hours shorter than I wanted it to be? If that sounds like you, then this is a link for you.

I’ve ripped all the music from this game - that is, all the ambient snippets of music that you hear while running around in the world, and all the music that happens in cutscenes - and it turns out there’s 16 hours (1.6 gigs) of it.

(- here’s the download link -)

So if you’ve found yourself wishing you had the heaps of music that never made it to the official soundtrack, you can now roll around in hours of it.

I CANNOT

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So you’re gone and I’m haunted
And I bet you’re just fine
Did I make it that easy to walk right in and out of my life?
