The Breakfast Club (Strutting Her Stuff)

Welcome to The Breakfast Club! We're a disorganized group of rebel lefties who hang out and chat if and when we're not too hungover  we've been bailed out we're not too exhausted from last night's (CENSORED) the caffeine kicks in. Join us every weekday morning at 9am (ET) and
weekend morning at 10:30am (ET) to talk about current news and our
boring lives and to make fun of LaEscapee! If we are ever running late,
it's PhilJD's fault.

Something to Think about over Coffee Prozac

 

We've collectively decided that putting kids in 3000 pounds of metal traveling at 65 MPH is safe, while letting them walk unsupervised can potentially get them taken away from you and placed in a foster situation. Also known to be safe.

ugh.

The Breakfast Club (Thrupenny)

The 3 rules of Opera. 
  1. It must be long, boring, and in an incomprehesible foreign language (even if that language is English).
  2. The characters, especially the main ones, must be thoroughly unsympathetic and their activities horrid and callous.
  3. Everyone must die, hopefully in an ironic and gruesome way.

Ballet is the same, but with more men in tights and without the superfluous singing.

Consider La Traviata (The Fallen Woman) celebrated in Pretty Woman.

 

 

In Act I, Violetta, a notorious (c'mon fallen woman?
 Everyone knows women don't like sex, it's just something they tolerate
because they like babies) courtesan, spurns Alfredo so she can live her
life the way she wants (Sempre libera - Always Free)

In Act II Violetta is living in a country house with Alfredo,
whom she's decided she loves and has completely abandoned her former
life.  What?  Did she get kidnapped by aliens?  I swear, I just went to
the lobby to visit the bathroom.  Is this the same theater?  The same
Opera?  Am I living some nightmarish Groundhog Day where I don't even get to listen to I've Got You Babe at 6 am every morning for eternity?

A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right.

In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
