  • Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical

    Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical

    ★★★★★

    WARNING: Here's another long review so if you don't have the time don't feel like you need to read it.

    Jekyll & Hyde is a masterpiece that delves deep into the mistreatment of sex workers, the inherent mistreatment of the poor when the rich exist and control things, and the many faces people put on to power through the day. Those same faces that we learn to both love and despise, as they protect us from the dangers of the world…

    CW: Suicide

    The Mountain Goats saved my life. I have no doubt in my mind that if it wasn't for me becoming fully invested in music and more specifically The Mountain Goats that I would have killed myself. I was terribly suicidal and depressed for a very long time in high school. It isn't as if I'm no longer suicidal, I just choose to keep living everyday. And John Darnielle is a huge reason why.

    True Stories

    ★★★★

    Listen to my podcast on any of the following platforms: Youtube, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify

    True Stories is super easy to watch, very well made, and more often than not extremely funny. The music is all pretty great and I had a smile on my face for practically the whole run time. David Byrne and John Goodman make an excellent duo and its a shame we never saw them acting together again. I am a big fan of The Talking Heads so it isn't a big surprise I was a big fan of this movie as well. Definitely recommend it.

  • The Band Concert

    The Band Concert

    ★½

    I suppose Mickey looks fine but on many accounts Donald looks pretty awful and somewhat unsettling. The biggest fault of this short however is the fact it has no idea where it is going with itself. It has miltiple antagonists that keep showing up and then disappearing forever, while the band itself are full of assholes.

    Whats unfortunate is that I really was having fun in the first 2 or so minutes and then it swiftly started building its speed as it descended a mountain to quality.

    Maybe it is the fact that I am not an edgy teenager anymore, but being controversial and edgy for the sake of being edgy or as some convoluted attempt at humor isn't funny to me. And that is all this comedy special is. Dave Chappelle says something controversial or just really fucking shitty and people laugh. It isn't ever even a joke. Instead he just pretty much says "I don't like trans people" to thunderous applause.

    He jokes…
