@pharmakeus Agree! It's even good (ie, incredible!) as interpreted by Muppets: http://christophergraham.bandcamp.com/album/muppet-christ-superstar

I totally agree with this assessment, except there's no real discussion of the actual music (and you even call JCS a "play,"), but what about the genius of the musical composition? It's this perfect, self-ironizing blend of mid-twentieth century classical and avant-garde music with jazz-funk/blues/rock acid-tripping hippie stuff AND musical theatre. Really just stellar.

Can you point to evidence that Gonne pronounced her name to rhyme with "gun"? I've only ever heard it pronounced "gawn" -- even on Irish and British TV (albeit with a more clipped vowel than an American would put on it).

By Kalorama_Kat on What Character Are You?

I just took the Which The Hairpin Contributor Are You Quiz and got Emma Carmichael, which I'm pretty happy with. I guess I would have been pretty happy with all of them though. If I made an Ann Friedman pie of which The Hairpin contributors I most closely identify with, it would be pretty even between Emma, Ann, and Jia, with a few other little slices in there. But the fact that I chose to write this as a paragraph, instead of making the Ann pie, more or less proves the quiz was right; I'm an Emma.

In my experience, love is not a thing that arrives on the doorsteps of the worthy like an overnight Amazon Prime order. So while I completely support decisions to tip more, floss, read outdoors, and generally treat yourself with kindness, don't convince yourself that no one will love you until you're perfect, because most of the time people fall in love with you for being imperfect.
