I love musicals. You know that already if you've met me. Or read this blog. Or are a discerning person and can figure out what the title of my blog is about. Sometimes, I think I am all alone in my love of musicals. I often drop little references into my conversations, like "Here we are, Sunset and Camden," or "Cracker Barrel went out the window with the milk pouch," and I am usually met with a weird blank stare (unless Becky is there).
But today I found hope. I went to see Wall-E (which was AMAZING) and was immediately treated to Michael Crawford's voice blaring out over the speakers singing "Out there....full of shine and sparkle..." My heart leap up, even though I've always hated Hello, Dolly! I'm weird like that. Then, I was riding the subway home and I pull out my Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight comic book and come face to face with a throwaway joke about Xanadu (the Broadway musical, not the movie). Here it is! Living proof that other people in the world secretly think about musicals. Even super cool people like Andrew Stanton and Joss Whedon. I realize that these people may not be "super cool" in a traditional sense. But it's good enough for me.
I'm ending this post with a clip of "Put On Your Sunday Clothes," since it's been stuck in my head all evening. Enjoy.
