Show Tunes Redeem Themselves

I detest the concept of musicals, and especially loathe the kind of situation where apparently perfectly sane and hale individuals suddenly feel the urge to throw their arms into the air and blare thundering crescendos just because they haven’t done it for, oh, a good 10 minutes already.

But all is forgiven!

    I take it you’re not a big fan of opera, then…

    No, I do not like the opera, but for a fundamentally different reason: I can’t stand the sound of the “opera voice.” To my ear, it is little different from fingernails on a blackboard. It does not matter what they sing, the color of the sound is unpleasant.

  3. ooh, I like the “enter this code” thingey. How do I get one of those ?? I guess you have to have WordPress :-(

    Isn’t this the greatest LiveJournal entry though? I just HOWLED with laughter when I read it.

    It’s something I put together, based on an idea I found on a WP support forum, but it should be basically usable in any PHP-based blog. The only problem is that I haven’t had the time to clean it up and put it all in one easy plug-in package that anyone moderately PHP-savvy could install anywhere.

    It’s definitely on the agenda, but I haven’t had the time to do it yet.
