    it’s a great piece of american propaganda and we will always have to look at it critically for its glorification of the founding fathers 

    but

    putting burr’s I Want song halfway through act 2 and then not having him even say “i want” until halfway through that song to signify how he do be waiting on the sidelines for things to happen to him is one of my favorite nuances in any musical ive ever seen. like how embarrassing to accidentally name your show after the villain

    really disappointed in myself for putting this off for so long, but after watching this fucking awesome video from the take about the white savior trope i thought tonight should be the night. and goddamn! don’t i feel a fool!

    and like i get it - some movies you put off because you know they’ll be upsetting. but if you’re a white person, especially in america, that excuse just ain’t valid. sorry! it’s fucking terrible and scary but its what…

    opening scene is a visual representation of being in 10th grade english class and getting really hot and bothered over the haunting ending of The Lottery and then immediately thinking about fucking percy jackson on a train

    subsequent scenes are 11th grade when u realize you are also attracted to women

    have not interacted with a man in so long i found myself lookinggg at sean penn. fucking. chaun penné. of all people. But then i realized it was just cause he was wearing a black turtleneck n matching leather duster. it’s like a jacket only it’s longer, thicker, and far more badass. he looks like lorenzo lamas, and women find him irresistible

    i have spent a lot of my life rewatching movies and i cannot recommend it enough. here is my three-watch system for guaranteed comprehension

    first watch: go in blind if you can. i like to watch on a laptop that is resting on my chest so you get a big-screen experience. make sure the room is completely dark so u don’t have to look at your weird reflection

    second watch: i repeat the process but this time…

    "so, everybody bitches and moans about how many takes—people i've never even met complain about how many takes i shoot. the take of neil patrick harris parking that jaguar dead center in the middle of that frame, that was take 2. that was take 2, it's in the movie, we walked away after take 2. so please. go fuck yourselves"

    i cannot believe i can watch this whenever i want, i feel like i should be paying him tuition for this
