Picking up serious ‘Toy Story’/’Wreck-It Ralph’ vibes from this. I don’t hate it.
I’m going to see this and kind of resent it, but at the same time it’s going to be beautiful. And probably terrible. I’ll most likely want to block it out of my memory.

My whole life has been building towards this moment.
Nothing like revisiting an album I haven’t listened to properly in years. Tonight, it was Sean Lennon’s Friendly Fire. Downloaded freely and legally years ago via the now-defunct Ruckus music service on a whim based purely on name recognition, it quickly became one of my favorites. There’s just something about Sean’s voice; it has a perfectly melancholy tone reminiscent of but also distinct from that of his famous father. It’s a breakup album, so it’s not the most uplifting thing to listen to, but I just can’t stop myself. I used to play it over and over, which is rare for me. The song Spectacle is amazing, and builds well to my favorite moment of the album. I don’t want to gush unnecessarily about the album, but I could if I wanted to.
I made a mistake though. I listened to the album too much, and haven’t really revisited it much in the last five years or so. I can’t repeat it like I once could, but when I do listen, it makes me smile in spite of the lyrical content.

They put up Bridesmaids, we went. They put up Pitch Perfect, we went. They put up The Devil Wears Prada, which was in two-thousand-meryl-streeping-oh-six, and we went (and by “we,” I do not just mean women; I mean we, the humans), and all of it has led right here, right to this place. Right to the land of zippedy-doo-dah. You can apparently make an endless collection of high-priced action flops and everybody says “win some, lose some” and nobody decides that They Are Poison, but it feels like every “surprise success” about women is an anomaly and every failure is an abject lesson about how we really ought to just leave it all to The Rock.
Nobody remembers, it seems, how many people said Bridesmaids would fail. And it didn’t! But it didn’t matter.
Every time I see a Broadway play, it becomes my favorite. Related but different: each time I see the same show, it gets better. How does this happen? For context, I saw Wicked for the 2nd time tonight, and it was amazing. Just a fantastic performance all around, especially by the two lovely leading ladies. I need to be fabulously (or just considerably) wealthy so I can spend lots of money on Broadway shows all the time.
He’s freaking gorgeous. It kind of blows my mind that I was first introduced to him in monochrome 16-bit graphics(Link’s Awakening, the original Game Boy version, not the colorized reissue for GBC), and in under 20 years, we’ve come this far. It’s pretty crazy. I cannot wait. SSB4 is going to own.
