“I think we’re the first ones to yell at each other, but we’re also the first ones to be there when the other’s life is totally falling apart”
i lost my shit after the first three or so and it just kept going….
When you really like a song but you don’t know the lyrics yet
and you try to sing along
As I may have said before, I’m a straight guy in theater. A minority of my own brand. Something I often end up overhearing without wanting to is this “is he straight or gay” game. Not to say gay people are the only ones, women do it all the time. I personally don’t give a shit about conversations like that. In fact, I’m usually the last to know if someone is gay or not when I thought the whole time they were straight. Hell, it happened today. Also, when it comes to someone’s personal life (relationship ended, friends dads death, etc) I’m usually the last to know again. And it’s not like I don’t give a shit about people’s lives, I do, and I think I make it a point when I’m with a person to have a good conversation with them about their lives, but I don’t go out of my way to find out this information. I have my own fuckin life!
This rant got nowhere and everywhere all at the same time.
I was thinking about why I love green day today. Being in the theater, I am around a lot of people who have very high standards of entertainment. Not that I don’t love what they love, but it’s all just so normal sometimes. When my fellow actors fuck up in a song, they totally get down on themselves too. The songs are always so precise. I think that’s why I love their music. There’s a sense of “out of control” epicness to it. If one note is wrong, so what?! Who gives a fuck? Their music is about having a good time, rockin the fuck out, being punks. There’s a lot less traditional structure to it and a lot less worry.
