They can suck it and learn to skip posts. I don't particularly want to read about musicals.(Although the only musical I ever saw was "Oliver" and thought it was pretty good.)

<quoted text>Yeah. I saw it at the Schubert. It had the one good song. However when the main gil has died of AIDS at the end and she is on the gurney and suddenly sits bolt upright singing the Mimi melody from LaBoheme I almost plotzed (nod to AS) and not in a good way. A good friend walked out at intermission and I couldn't blame him but the tickets were expensive so I stayed.
Wait, Mimi's not DEAD! She's very ill (probably pneumonia) and has a near-death experience (...there was this warm white light, and I swear, Angel was there....and she looked GOOD!)

But Angel tells Mimi to go back (..turn around, girl, and listen to that boy's song!), so Mimi's fever breaks and she wakes up.

Yes, Mimi (and Roger!) have HIV/AIDS and will most likely die young -- but it won't be that day. As for April (Roger's former girlfriend who died), she didn't die of AIDS. She cut her wrists in the bathtub after being diagnosed.

LOL, I love musicals! And many of them are pretty dark underneath. Opera, ya know! Keith, on the other hand, doesn't care for them. I took him to Sweeney Todd, and he said, "Oh, it was all right....except for all that damn singing!" Uh, Sweetie...it's a musical!

Yes, Rent is La Boheme. And West Side Story is Romeo & Juliet. An The Lion King is Hamlet.

Had to think about that.
Plotz is an active verb. Metaphorical collapse in aggravation, frustration or being really tired.
I could just plotz from trying to get Edog and Sam to play nice. I wouldn't plotz over them. Unless I just collapsed on the couch after a really long day , I wouldn't think someone would see me physically plotz.
There is a book by Leo Rosten called The Joys of Yiddish that was like the OED of Yiddish when I was growing up.
Yiddish is a combination of mostly German with Hebrew, some Polish and probably some of the Russian languages mixed in. You could probably take the German usage and feel confident you weren't mangling things too badly.
True story: I was at the Tower of London with my daughter. We ere surrounded by noting but German speaking tourists and I needed to ask where eh restaurants/food were. I dredged up my old Yiddish and it worked just fine. Either that or they thought I was threatening to cannibalize the kid. Either way it worked.
what got me thinking is htat my dad was carrying on in a good way about the way i cleaned their basement and repalced the water heater while they were gone. in my family, we used plotzing for carrying on happily, surprisedly, etc,(positive raection), but i forget the grammatical constrtuction.

wow- someone i work with was right, now i'm just showing off about this!!

i will have to look into the joy of yiddish.,, it keeps cominig up in relation to this.

Your pathetic. explain what you meant then when you said that he could never had brought a gun to the airport if he never had one to begin with.

I never said it. Never ever ever never. You will not find me saying that anywhere. I previously explicitly stated that was not my position. Find one example of me saying all firearms should be eliminated. You won't be able to.

Ah, Facebook. I've seen the downside and now I've seen the upside. Just Face-stigated and found out that Jasper and PMS are going to a theme park in Orlando (had to catch myself before I typed the name of it!) instead of down here this weekend. Now I won't have to wonder if we'll run into each other.

I liked it, but I saw it a year or so into its run in NYC, so cast might also have had something to do with it. Don't ask me who the cast was, I just remember the face of the one really cute guy.
My sister who has some theater ties reports that the script was extensively workshopped and was routinely panned before the reworks and then author died. Between the reworks and the current staging at the time of his death, it finally took off.
Is this the one where the author died on the afternoon of opening night?

Just goes to show that I don't remember Rent well enough because I probably lost interest. Sorry. I never saw the movie btw.

The Lion King is Hamlet ???!! Richard III with the Princes in the Tower surviving maybe, but Hamlet? nuh uh.

Ha! I had to stop myself from wishing rain on Orlando all weekend. It's been so rainy here, that's likely to backfire on me karma-wise.
;)

Are you going to Orlando too?
