actors policing and drawing attention to bootlegs pisses me off sfm like
bootlegs accomplish the following:
- allowing less privileged folk to be exposed to the incredibly elitist theatre circuit
- exposing people to shows which they have never heard of which increases ticket sales if anything because ticket prices are fucking expensive and you’re probably not going to take a chance on a show that you’re entirely unfamiliar with
things that don’t happen as a result of bootlegs:
- people stop going to the theatre
bootlegs happen, it’s not disrespectful to the show or the cast; it’s allowing fans access to an extremely elitist industry and if anything generating interest in a particular cast or production rather than dissuading theatre attendance, so acting like bootlegs are going to be the death of theatre (as opposed to the ridiculous prices on broadway rn) is nothing short of ignorant
Napoleon verses the Bunnies
After signing the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807 Napoleon decided to celebrate by hosting a rabbit hunt, entrusting the arrangements to his chief of staff Alexander Berthier. Berthier gathered several hundred rabbits for the hunt, and invited some of the most important men in the French Empire. In addition to the various VIP’s present at the hunt, there were also a number of gun bearers, beaters (a person who flushes game by beating the brush with a stick), and game keepers. The plan was that when the gamekeeper released the rabbits they would scatter in all directions, running for their lives as the hunters shot the rabbits at will. There was one hitch, Berthier had not gathered wild rabbits but purchased tame domesticated bunnies. When the bunnies were released, rather than running for their lives they all dashed at the hunting party, believing they were about to be fed by the man wearing the big hat. Napoleon formed a skirmish line but the horde of bunnies swarmed the party, tugging at their pants and climbing up their legs. Sensing defeat as a bunny climbed up his jacket Napoleon called retreat and made for the safety of his coach. Napoleon had to eject several bunnies from the coach while making his escape.
I will be taking a hiatus off tumblr. I am not sure when\if I’ll be back but the only thing I am sure of is that this website has been too toxic recently and I can’t deal with all this negativity right now.
I am really going to miss some of you, so if we have talked more than once and you consider us to be friends, you can message me for my email or any other way to keep in touch. Also if there’s something important you want me to see, you can send me an ask (not fanmail) since those get redirected to my email.
