Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
We have threads for movies and threads for music. Their lovechild was inevitable.
Currently my favorite musicals are two well known productions by Stephen Sondheim:
Starts off as little more than a retelling of various fairy tales, and then twists everything around and examines the moral implications of the stories, and the consequences of doing anything to get yourself a "happy ending". One of my favorite aspects of the show is that, instead of having scenes of just talking and scenes of just singing, characters will frequently rhyme or sing a few lines during the normal dialog, and conversely break rhyme or speak normally during the songs. As a result, the speaking<->singing transitions are much smoother than other musicals, and the whole play feels like a unified piece.
Careful the wish you make,
Wishes are children.
Careful the path they take,
Wishes come true,
The story of a barber who kills his customers and has their corpses used for meat pies; what's not to love?
There's a hole in the world like a great black pit
And it's filled with people who are filled with shit
And the vermin of the world inhabit it...
But not for long!
