Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Belated Happy New Year! Let's hope 2018 beats 2017. And this is the year I'm going to see LM live! If all goes well I will get to see the touring production in Dallas, Texas.

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

I was going to go to Cuba but then I didn't. ... March, I guess. I'd love to go to Cuba before it gets modernized and touristy. I understand it's a time capsule. Of course their Internet service is strictly controlled and people are still being thrown in prison for wrong thinking and such--maybe wh...

Re: The Thenardier Sisters

Gawd, "Misérables" sure is right. You captured their poverty in that picture. I always felt very sorry for those sisters since they were so well-kept as children and lost it all and had to dress in scraps.

Re: Political Posts

Well, hey! Alabama managed to elect their first Democratic candidate to the Senate in over 20 years . . . WOO-HOO! Now let's hope there isn't some kind of a backlash. What he said about the sanctity of the family being greatest during the time of slavery was more than absurd, it was abominable. Whe...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Victor Hugo believed in universal public education, or at least his characters did, as a step toward utopia. Here is an interesting article about public schools in France banning phones:

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Here is a cool article about the origins of "ship" and "slash" -- apparently slash goes back decades before ship. Lots of examples from fandoms I never heard of.

Re: Political Posts

What Prisoner said. ARGH, it's true. I'm using Resist-Bot to fax and write to my congresspeople not that it's going to do any good. Texas is backward. Resist-Bot, what it is: you text in your name, address, and so on, and a message, and it sends it via fax or mail. Not a bot in the usual (spammy) se...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

It's coming to Dallas and I'm going to get to go! That's great! Please share your experience afterwards, I'm curious about this production. I will certainly do so. It's next year, but even so we didn't get very good seats. Still, seeing it at all is going to be a thrill. I'll have to take some oper...

Re: Political Posts

Way too much to comment on all of it and I'm jumping in way late but I'll just tell my experience with getting a job in the US, which I think I've posted before but it is peripherally related to this discussion. I majored in linguistics. They told us with that degree we could get a job at one of two...
