I have finally won a meme. According to this Shakespeare performance generator, I am Drunk Twelfth Night: The Musical. I suspect most of my friendlist would watch that. I certainly would.


It has actually not been the best of weeks, but rushthatspeaks and I had dinner at Mamaleh's (we had planned on barbecue at the Smoke Shop, but they had a half-hour wait and too many sports TVs) and I got the salmon collar special with black sesame tahini and a lemon-cardamom soda and I keep forgetting to tell the internet about BROJOB, but they are hilariously queer deathcore with a really adorable social media presence and if they are not already collaborating with Chuck Tingle, by God I hope someone has at least introduced them. They give writing advice like "YOU JUST HAVE TO SPEAK FROM THE HEART. THE HEART OF YOUR BALLS." Maybe he can do cover art for their albums.

Speaking of awesome queer music, I can recommend Against Me!'s Shape Shift with Me (2016) almost as strongly as their previous studio album, 2014's knockout Transgender Dysphoria Blues. I've been listening to it most of the afternoon and evening. Where its predecessor was heavily autobiographical about the process of coming out and transitioning, Shape Shift with Me concentrates on what happens afterward, on relationships in all stages from infatuation, hope, and invitation through passionate frustration and full-bore scorched-earth DGAF. I also now own a T-shirt with the album title on it, since as a philosophy it's the kind of thing I approve of. I am going to watch some kind of movie off the internet because I have been having a terrible time doing anything for myself. Tomorrow I make hamantashn.

All proceeds go toward the future therapy of the cast and crew!

My brain leaps from that line to my favorite high school theater experience, a production of little-known 1960s play _After the Rain_. It's a post-apocalyptic piece about a handful of British people on a houseboat during the Second Great Flood. Which is already pretty cool, but made infinitely cooler by the frame story. It's actually all a play-within-a-play, a lecture being delivered in the context of the society the survivors built, many generations later. And all the actors except "The Lecturer" are actually convicted criminals who have been hypnotized into believing they are these characters as part of their "therapy". In the unlikely event that you get a chance to see this, I recommend it.

Thank you! That is sufficiently little-known that I've never heard of it.
