Daniel Purvis, a British MAG gymnast, plows into the judges' table.

SHIT that is funny. I love how he turns around and still topples--it's so committed. And then he and the judge console each other...God, it's hilarious, I'm literally crying here at work.

This week has been literally exhausting. I've had rehearsal every day or night since Saturday, staging the musical numbers, and the weeknight commute in and out of Hoboken is terrible. It's not just the time, it's also carrying the scooter on the train so it doesn't whack people in the shins, and standing on the bus as it jerks around. Also we're rehearsing at the Howe Center which is at the top of a STEEP hill. So, so tired--when I get home all I want to do is collapse. My general routine when I get home is to put on a movie and go over the blocking, cleaning it up in my script. This can take a while as I am a little OCD about notating my blocking neatly. Very glad tonight I get a break--most of the numbers are staged by now, we just have a few left and then the book scenes. Much (though not all) of the heavy lifting is done. Exhausted as I am, I am really enjoying working with this cast--they all seem very positive and friendly. Yay, happy casts! Part of that is Susan, I think--she is one of the friendlist people I've ever known, as she sets a good tone. But also we have Dave and not our horrible incompetent music director we had last time.

We staged Poor Wand'ring One and How Beautifully Blue the Sky last night--one thing I love about Jen as Mabel is how dead-on her comic instincts are. We have so much more rehearsal time this go-around than last time, that I have more leisure in which to add more comic bits. So I ended PWO with Frederic passing out (he's so overcome with joy at Mabel's voice)--she helps him up, and then I had the two of them go upstage and make out really obnoxiously. It is HILARIOUS. They look like the cover of The Postman Always Rings Twice.

I would have loved some tongue action--not actual tongue action but tongues hanging out, a la Jeff Mancuso in Cellular Biology. But they're a little too far upstage for it to read, I think.

Of course this weekend will be just as busy--I have rehearsal tomorrow and Sunday, and then a production meeting Sunday afternoon. And tomorrow morning I am doing an adult soccer clinic to improve my ball-handling skills and then I go from there to rehearsal. SO excited about the soccer clinic! I really want to dribble better.

Tonight going to see The Empress of Sex. Looking forward to not thinking about Pirates for a change!

Interesting article here on Gothamist. There's apparently a new (?) site called SubwayCrush.net where contributors can put up photos they've taken of hot guys in the subway.

I don't know what's more amusing--1) the guys whose first instinct is to lecture women about their "hypocrisy" in objectifying men (Right on! to the poster who writes "blah blah blah what if we did this to women men are being objectified blah blah - you know you're boring, right? Of course a man has a right to feel violated if this happened to them, but with male rape and assault by women a billion-to-one rarity, men have less to fear about these things. You know this. Use your head." In other words, there are actual, real-life consequences to the objectification of women, it's not just bad manners. You want to talk about being insulted? Sure, I think it's bad manners and creepy myself to take someone's picture without asking. But it's NOT the same thing as what happens to women--every day). In other words, what about teh menz?!

2) Or their horror when someone points out it's mostly other men taking and posting the pictures!

Jesus, you're right. This has to be a gay website.

I literally cannot stop laughing at this last remark.

At the risk of hyperbole, this is possibly one of the funniest things I've ever seen (although still not quite as good as the compilation video where all the TV journalists get hammered. Ohio State!).

The W*stb*r* B*pt*st "Church" showed up in San Francisco to protest...something. Oh right, Fiddler On the Roof. So someone had the brilliant idea to meet confront insane, poisonous, pointless hatred with absurdism.


I have literally been laughing all day at this. Riding the 1 back from class this afternoon, I burst into giggles again. I think my favorite is I WAS PROMISED DONUTS. The rickrolling of God is also hilarious:



...and so forth. So, so funny.

...vomiting (the scene is Super-Size Me when he yaks on the second day right out the van window, all the while cataloguing his symptoms ("I got the McGurgles in my stomach now...") KILLS me). In real life vomiting really grosses me out, I sympathy-gag. But at a distance, there's something hilarious about it.

...stampeding (there's something hilarious about a situation so awful that everyone comes together as one entity, focused on ESCAPE--I'm thinking about the scene in the novel The Great Santini when Karen accidentally lobs the medicine ball onto her dad's foot and instantly all four Meecham kids, who normally fight a lot, are out the door).

...really egregious breaches of behavior.

This has all three. I cannot stop giggling.

[Although I have to object to the title of the original site that Gothamist cites. I'm really tired of douche being used as an insult. It's implicitly misogynistic. It's like when you want to insult a man by calling him a vagina--the insult is in the comparison to the female side, like hysteria (from the Greek root word for womb, hustera). Douches are disgusting because ohhh, they touched someone's girly bits, gross! They're like tampons! Anything that touches girly bits will make your wee wee shrivel up and fall off. Just call these things obnoxious, or assholery. Everyone's got an asshole.]

And this site is also hilarious: Nic Cage as Everyone. I especially like Nic Cage as Pennywise:

Okay, my married friends--please don't take this personally, it is too funny not to post.

STFU, Marrieds

It's a blog devoted to calling out lame FB updates from obnoxiously happily married (or committed) couples. There is some schadenfreude here but you know, there are also some things you probably shouldn't post on FB if you don't want people to mock it. The comments are the best.

I love that angry scrawl on the right.

But the best one is definitely this one, I am literally laughing out loud here at my desk. I love that long beautiful eloquent advice "don't fall prey to the drama...you know where his heart is...be the better person..." and ending with "so fuck that ho."

Some kind soul compiled a bunch of clips of TV reporters getting blindsided. It is HILARIOUS. My makeup is in ruins, I've been laughing so hard.

I'm on All That Chat right now and perusing a thread about the textual changes to The Fantasticks after people started getting uncomfortable with "It Depends on What You Pay." As you all know, the original song was an extended pun on the word rape--the lyrics officially use it to mean abduction but of course the humor comes from the double meaning.

The rape Venetian
Needs a blue lagoon.
The rape with moonlight
Or without a moon.
Moonlight is expensive but it's in demand.
The military rape:
It's done with drummer and a band.

After, say, 1970, people started grumbling about this (I must say, although I am quick to point out sexism in musicals, I never had a problem with this song--I personally find the song hilarious but I can understand why many wouldn't) and Tom Jones wrote new lyrics for the song that licensors can request if they like.

A poster wrote:

I once heard a - maybe apocryphal? - story that a high school staging *The Fantasticks* about ten years ago was worried about the word "rape," so they changed it to "snatch." Is that possible? Was my friend who told me this making it up? She was a very sweet earnest girl who never lied. . .

Someone responded:

God, that's even worse!!

"So you see the sort of SNATCH depends on what you pay"

I've literally been sitting here giggling for the past 10 minutes at this.

I'm reading ATC right now and someone posted this:

Funny story--when I did Brigadoon in HS, Tommy jumped a few pages of dialogue in the Lundie scene, so the audience never heard what happens if anyone leaves. So during intermission we set up a mike backstage, the director scribbled down some dialogue, and while we were chasing Harry, the audience heard "Mr. Lundie! why is everyone chasing Harry Beaton?" "OH dinna you know laddie--if anyone leaves Brigadoon the town will disappear forever!")

Oh SHIT, that is funny. I just have this image of everyone running around, beating the bushes looking for Harry Beaton and then this random expositional dialogue is heard, like the voice of God. I'm literally crying right now, I find this so funny. Man, I love stage screw-ups.

Check out The Famous Disapproving Rabbits. Their owner says: I have pet rabbits and I love them. I try to talk to them about birds and various other topics but they frequently disapprove. They are cute, yet set in their ways.
