Ok so I saw Indecent on Broadway tonight and it was an incredibly moving show, that made a ton of good points on what it meant to be a Jewish artist in the 20th century and the hoops you had to jump through. (See tags for more on this)
It’s based on a true story of this play called God of Vengeance by Sholem Asch, about a prostitute and a brothel owners daughter who fall in love. (The whole cast got arrested for putting on an indecent show it was nuts).
And there’s this scene between Lemml the Stage Manager of God of Vengeance and Eugene O'Neil where they’re talking about the indecency trial and Eugene is going on about how much of a dark place the world is and he says “and those two girls… are like a lighthouse” (or something similar) and I just… broke.
I’ve never heard anyone say anything like that before, and for someone who’s sexuality is to a lot of people, just a category of porn? To see love between two girls called a lighthouse in a dark world? It was so intensely moving and it ultimately made me cry and I just can’t believe this show got extended to a point where I would be able to see it because I am just… so moved.
In the 75th episode of ‘88 Osomatsu-Kun, there’s this super cute exchange between 50-year-old Osomatsu and Totoko. Despite the fact that Totoko can’t seem to remember what exactly Oso gave her, she seems determined to prove to him that he was always super sweet to her (and try and justify why she’d much rather be marrying him instead)!!
You can find the scene (plus the entire episode w/ the subs!) here!
while i’m on the subject taako and kravitz fanships that separate them and put them with other people (usually every other boy in the series) are still garbage and still fetishy and creepy and them’s just the facts
