Hey Sean, I saw on your twitter that you despised the "Hamilton" soundtrack. May I ask you why you hated the show and exactly why you found it to be an "ideologically noxious" show?

I should note that I haven’t seen the show, because I can’t afford to buy a ticket outright and am not interested enough in seeing it to enter the lottery. But my objection to it as musical theater is as simple as listening to “Aaron Burr, Sir” and thinking “dear god, this sucks.” The music is cheesy like only bad musical theater can be cheesy (”Seventeen Seventy-Six! New York City!”). The rhymes are awful – this is only a “hip-hop musical” by the same standard that Rent is a rock opera. We can all listen to hip-hop or rock and compare it to what passes for these things on Broadway and draw our own conclusions. It makes me cringe.

As for its ideology, Hamilton recasts an alliance of convenience between wealthy northern merchants and wealthy southern slaveowners, designed to overthrow an actual aristocracy and replace it with a new ad hoc aristocracy consisting of themselves, and casts it as some sort of up-with-people feel-good story about how an immigrant changed the world. It attempts to use colorblind casting to erase both their crimes and the actions of actual people of color in the time period. No wonder the entire political establishment has lined up for this thing.

I am tall and a bit curvy, and talk louder than I think I do. I'm very introverted, and prefer to stay away from crowds if I can. I'm a workaholic with hardly any social life, I'll be completing my accounting degree this next year. I tend to look up many random topics and oveanalyze everything. I love classical music (ie operas, symphonies, piano music), rock, and pop hits from the 80's on. I like bright colours, especially rich reds, purples and greens. I love chocolate in all forms.

What about France?
He’s making sure you’re comfortable with whatever situation you’re in, since he knows you’re not always keen on being around crowds of people. Even if you’re working a lot, he wants to help you relax and won’t hesitate to make a comfort food or a drink if you need. He’s open to whatever music you like, and would probably even start listening to the songs you like after a while. And of course, expect a lot of chocolate in whatever pastries he makes for you!
The French know what they’re doing when it comes to relationships.

Imagine a theme park kinda like Disney but instead of a Disney theme it’s a Broadway theme. There could be a Phantom of the Opera haunted boat ride, a Carousel carousel, a Wicked indoor ride, a Rock of Ages Roller Coaster, The Secret Garden walkthrough garden maze. The parade would have floats featuring different shows. Themed restaurants would include a real life Lulu’s Pies from Waitress, a RENT Santa Fe restaurant, Mrs. Lovett’s Pie shop, a Something Rotten omelette stand… The possibilities are endless!
