I post about sacred, serious and silly things on this blog. I think it’s a reflection of what life is about for everyone. We all have special things that we hold sacred. There are serious issues we have to deal with in life. Of course we have to balance it all out with some good silly fun. That’s what you will find here.
I agree wholeheartedly. Being silly and ridiculous is a good thing. Of course being serious when you need to can make the difference.
There is a certain happiness in being silly and ridiculous…I wish more people would feel this way and would accept those who feel this way.
There is a certain happiness in being silly and ridiculous. I agree 100%

Discussion at the University of Maryland six months ago.
Designer: So what are you looking for in the new uniform design?
Athletic Director: Can you make something that incorporates the Maryland flag but in a way that makes it appear as if you have suffered some kind of awful brain injury that has severed your corpus callosum and rendered each hemisphere of your brain ignorant of what the other hemisphere is thinking and seeing?
Designer: Yes. Yes I can.

Yeah. Here’s what musicals taught me:
- Women who can sing well but have exaggerated facial features that would appear distracting on a movie screen can find work if they can really, really overact.
- Plays aren’t as important as musicals because you can’t make money off of a soundtrack. Also, no one buys a “Glengarry Glen Ross” collector cup.
- If source material is too lame or shallow to support a ninety minute film or two hour play it is perfect for a three hour musical.
- If a theatrical experience isn’t presented within a one square mile portion of New York City, it doesn’t count as real theater.
- Musicals can make Spider-Man, gifted athleticism, and U2 all look totally lame.
- Bad lip syncing during a parade on Thanksgiving is apparently amazingly effective marketing.
