Mar 20 paulus22 commented on These Are the Shows the 5th Avenue Theatre Is Doing Next Season—No Other Media Outlets Have This Yet.
I hate to say this, especially as the first comment, but The Hunchback of Notre Dame is an underrated Disney musical. The film was problematic, but the music...shit! Shiver-inducing stuff. I'm pretty excited to hear about this...especially if it will be darker!

Your performance date is from 2007. You really need to do better research.

Arts organizations feuding with each other is yet another bizzarro sad thing in today's already fucked up world.
Feb 7 paulus22 commented on Senate Confirms Betsy DeVos, Biggest Threat to Public Schools Since the Flu that Went Around Last Month.
In any other realm, DeVos' 'job interview', the hearing, would have nullified her hire. If I were a manager and someone came in for an interview and performed that poorly, there would be NO WAY I would hire her. It's proof positive that partisanship is a cancer on our democracy.

You go, Shawna. Proud of your brave willingness to put your family out there with all these shittastic trolls.

This is good to hear. I too thought the trailers leaned on hokey tropes, but if you, a woman of color, actually praised it this highly that changes my mind. I can't wait to see this, Moonlight, and I Am Not Your Negro. Some great black cinema hitting our theaters lately for a change!!!
Jan 4 paulus22 commented on We Still Get Great Comments (From Great Commenters) Here On Slog.
I, too, still yearn for comment threads to be a place for intelligent and nuanced discussion and conversation, and have hope that they will someday become exactly that more than they are today. We have this super-powerful technology that could really allow us to understand each other more, to get past the right/left bullshit and really get to the core of who we are as people, to truly learn from each other. Trolls ruin it for everyone. I'm not going to quit intelligently commenting. I am, however, going to try harder to not get sucked into the crap side as much.
