rent-the-movie

funny story

In my junior year of high school, this guy asked me on a date. He rented a redbox movie and made a pizza. We were watching the movie and the oven beeped so the pizza was done. He looked me dead in the eye and said, “This is the worst part.” I then watched this boy open the oven and pull the pizza out with his bare hands, rack and all, screaming at the top of his lungs. We never had a second date.

has anyone ever noticed how whenever alcohol is mentioned in a musical it’s met with rousting cheers or some kid of shout or excitement at the very least?? here are some examples. (starring too many exclamation marks)

rent: “WINE AND BEER!!”

godspell: “let’s have some wine!!” “wHOOOOO”

come from away: “i’m givin each and everyone some COMPLEMENTARY BOOZE!”

be more chill: “everybody’s got a red solo cup, fill it up, fill it up! hear the beer spill on the ground”

heathers: “when mom and dad forget to LOCK THE LIQUOR CABINET”, “crack open one more case”, “there’s no alcohol in here, are you trying to poison me?” and basically all of big fun

hamilton: “let’s have another round tonight”, “time to take a shot!”, “let’s have another roUuuUuUund”

newsies: “so let’s get drunk!” “YEaHhhhHhHh!!!!!!!”

feel free to add more, i will too :,)

Do not cross her. She’ll kick your ass and sue you for wasting her time afterwards. And win.


(NOT MY GIFS!)

okay but FOX can do silly, lowkey meaningless musicals (grease), but i don’t trust them to handle real themes of suffering and triumph. i won’t let a bunch of slightly racist, hardcore right-wing republicans tell the story of Angel Dumott, a gender-fluid person who DIED of AIDS because they were LBGT+. or the story of Joanne Jefferson, the successful and thriving Harvard lawyer lesbian. or mimi marquez! the POC stripper who isn’t looking for money, but love and a family. or Maureen Johnson, a feminist and human rights activist who ALSO HAPPENS TO BE BI. the only thing i can trust them to do is whitewash the cast, tbh.
