Really engrossed by this piece, written by a friend of mine from college. Particularly this bit:

If you’re queer, better to be out than pretend to be straight. If you want to have sex with more than one person, better to be open and polyamorous than have affairs. If you’re any journalist who will always find it impossible to be truly objective, better be as open as you can about your biases and let readers judge your words for themselves.

This is Jackie Cain and Roy Kral, a jazz duo playing a stripped down, jazzed-up version of Not a Day Goes By. This live recording is out of print and was one of my favourite finds at a local records store.  

Yes, I love jazz versions of show tunes.

One of my favorite albums. One of my new favorite Tumblrs.

RIP Jackie Cain

IKEA installs climbable vertical apartment in France

It bothers me to an unreasonable degree that some things are oriented to the billboard and some are oriented to the “floor” of the apartment. It’s like someone came into the house and started overturning the furniture.

I was about to type exactly what Adam wrote before seeing he already wrote it.

The Ensemblist #31: Ensemble Musicals

(Tumblr audio being wonky? Click one of the other links below to check out the episode:)

On this latest episode of The Ensemblist, Nikka and Mo interview three Broadway stars who have shined in ensemble musicals. As veterans of various types of Broadway shows, Telly LeungDana Moore, and Julia Murney explain how ensemble shows are unique experiences that require trust and flexibility throughout the entire journey.

As opposed to traditional book musicals with lead characters, supporting players, features, and ensemblists, ensemble shows tell their story differently- every member of the cast takes the spotlight at some point during the show. These three guests all have experience with this alternative way of storytelling through song- and their stories about what it takes to work as a group shine a whole new light on what it’s like to truly work together.
