I have a feeling more people would be talking about dinosaurs if they could talk and all had witty catchphrases. Well maybe more people wouldn’t be talking about them, but I know I would talking about them more.
I bet he would be a good lay, since he’s so angry all the time. MMMMMM Senator Paul Ryan.
Okay, let’s talk about Glee for a hot second.
Well mainly let’s talk about the “casting process” for McKinley High’s production of West Side Story.
In a traditional casting process, especially for a musical as vocally demanding as West Side Story, you pick someone who would be able to sing the score. That’s a huge thing, and then you judge their acting ect. Neither Mercedes or Rachel have the vocal range needed for Maria, one is a Broadway Belter and the other is a R&B Diva. Sorry ladies and the writers of Glee, Maria is traditionally played by an operatic soprano (with the exception of Natalie Wood).
If Rachel or Mercedes were cast as Maria, they would have to transpose all the music for them to be able to sing it properly (which I am sure with McKinley High’s enormous budget, you could afford). And sorry Idina Menzel’s awful character (I’m too lazy to look up her character’s name), you didn’t play Maria 8 times in WSS, you too do not have the vocal range for that role.
I know that this is a random theater nerd rant post, but like seriously? Come on Glee!
Why would you want to be maria anyway? Anita has the best songs, and most of the women that play her win an award. Rita Moreno (Movie): Oscar! Debbie Allen (80’s revival): Tony! Karen Olivo (2009 revival): TONY!
Fuck Maria, you wanna be Anita y’all!
My brother known for making intelligent life decisions, got his gf pregnant. So I am going to be an uncle. I can’t say I’m surprised, I figured it would happen sooner, but am glad that he waited until he was 30 to become a father.
His gf is currently getting her GED (she dropped out of HS due to lack of parental involvement), and the live at my parent’s house in the bedroom my brother and I shared growing up, oh did I also mention that she has a kid who’s two?
They’re naming the kid Justin Gabriel Alexander (my last name). I can’t say that I’m thrilled that they’re having a baby, but hopefully it will be a wake-up call to my brother to grow up a little bit and take some responsibility for himself.
