The United States Postal Service Presents the Statue of Liberty*

*Note: Not the real Statue of Liberty. This one’s from Vegas.

Also: Just to get the wingnut rumors started, let’s misleadingly observe that Forever is crossed out, revealing that the Postal Service doesn’t believe in American Exceptionalism.

Who’s That Lady? New Stamp Features Wrong Statue of Liberty [Time, via flippin eck]

OK, boys and girls and Catt, I did my best to shield you from the horror of Sondheim fandom but you have to know that this is the best statue of liberty evah..

Yes, you will be taken to the Huff thing. And yes you will have to deal with some old bitter queen musings but scroll down chilluns to the marvel of the Byrd poster for the original Follies (both naff and thrilling; staged by a genius: Michael Bennet).

This is when musical theatre was musical theatre. You’re welcome.

@Benedick is not as stupid as he looks.: That photo of “Gloria Swanson — seen standing amid the ruins of New York’s Roxy Cinema as it was being torn down” is Sunset Boulevard in a nutshell.

What happens in Vegas…

Seriously, someone knew exactly what they were doing.

@Benedick is not as stupid as he looks.: You sure that isn’t the poster from Hair?

@nojo: That’s one creepy ass movie.

Oh, gotta go buy libations before I read my governor’s proposed budget. I’ll laugh! I’ll cry! They are already trying to take away the 4% pay raise we got in October, and they can; it’s under the discretion of the trustee of the union. Lovely. Gov’s executives received an 11% pay raise. Secondary schools will lose half of their funding. Looks like state employee healthcare is getting cut, too. I will be at the next union meeting as well as a rally at the capital. But now, sleep. I just can’t deal with this shit anymore.

@JNOV: Our Dem Guv, and Dem-controlled House and Senate just released another all cuts budget that’s gonna phuck Washington State harder than it’s ever been phucked before. Absolutely no new taxes for the richies though, especially since we already have the most regressive tax structure of all 50 states. Can’t upset Bill Gates! Pfft.

@¡Andrew!: Yeah. The R&D tax credit for businesses would increase from $40M to $55M. Suhhhweeet!

I’m going to play with that twitter thing some more.

It’s not your fault. Call the effed up toilets?

Target? Oh, wait…you’ve probably already closed them up toilets?

Please check out — some balls, parents, and Rapes Altar Boys ‘n’ the right script, but ANA MASRAYA!

Damn, Nojo. This is addictive.

RELOAD Tweet is allergic to mass-orgasm event at a little warmer next year. MUST!

Okay. Last one.

HuffPo Merges with every one hand. Okay. Who cares if you can have meaningful relationships through PINE.

I lied.

B/c you’re in bed with every one of Los Angeles. EXACTLY!! of science: Beatrix Potter.

Make. Me. Stop.

My Journey Into Manhood: Undercover at a chubby dude in That Order! ORLY@kenlayne?

@All: I see your Daily Blurb tweets, and I raise you the leads for two posts in two days, bitchez! Woot!

@Dodgerblue: I missed this discussion. Snorri’s Uterus was right about what?

@JNOV is like, 9 and 4 >:-/: A Woman in Berlin. An astonishing memoir of the collapse of Berlin and how a woman survives. Pitiless and unflinching and very fine.

@Dodgerblue: Isn’t it extraordinary? Recently saw the movie which has some very good things about it but is remade as a tragic romance. They do the astonishing scene where the women compare the number of times they’ve been raped but shift its place in the story. But very well acted and a remarkable physical production.

@JNOV is like, 9 and 4 >:-/: Sorry you’re having such a bad and stressful time.

@Benedick is not as stupid as he looks.: My aunt was sent to Austria after her (I think) 4th school was bombed by the allies. She’d leave her home (or bomb shelter), go to school, and there’d be no school. She still can’t deal with the sound of fireworks. She realizes how lucky she was to be able to travel, not to mention not be tortured, robbed, raped or killed by Hitler, but she still bears the scars.

I’m okay, my love. I’m always stressed; it’s how I know I’m alive.
