“The more things change, the more they stay the same. I’m not sure who the first person was who said that. Probably Shakespeare. Or maybe Sting. But at the moment, it’s the sentence that best explains my tragic flaw, my inability to change. I don’t think I’m alone in this. The more I get to know other people, the more I realize it’s kind of everyone’s flaw. Staying exactly the same for as long as possible, standing perfectly still… It feels safer somehow. And if you are suffering, at least the pain is familiar. Because if you took that leap of faith, went outside the box, did something unexpected… Who knows what other pain might be out there, waiting for you. Chances are it could be even worse. So you maintain the status quo. Choose the road already traveled and it doesn’t seem that bad. Not as far as flaws go. You’re not a drug addict. You’re not killing anyone… Except maybe yourself a little. When we finally do change, I don’t think it happens like an earthquake or an explosion, where all of a sudden we’re like this different person. I think it’s smaller than that. The kind of thing most people wouldn’t even notice unless they looked at us really close. Which, thank God, they never do. But you notice it. Inside you that change feels like a world of difference. And you hope this is it. This is the person you get to be forever… that you’ll never have to change again.”—
“So let me get this straight - Larry King is getting his 8th divorce, Elizabeth Taylor is possibly getting married for a 9th time, Jesse James and Tiger Woods are screwing EVERYTHING, yet the idea of same-sex marriage is what is going to destroy the institution of marriage?? REALLY??”—

ohmygoodness. i looooooove this. the woman is a genius.
Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes.
I am…. in a state of awe right now. I almost can’t form words. So many things are going through my mind right now… I feel confident that I can honestly say that this production has changed my life. I laughed, I cried, I felt a sense of loss and heartbreak and sadness and hope and love. There are so many things I could say right now but… my head is still spinning. RENT is unlike anything I have ever seen before and I know that nothing else I see will accomplish that task in such a moving and genuine tone. RENT is about… living your life and really, honest to god, making the most of every minute you have and embracing that with every fiber you possess. I’ve only seen the DVD once, but I know that there are countless times to come with the future. To everyone involved in creating this show and making such a life changing production possible, all I can say is Thank You.
1. Bold the names of guys you’d definitely shag. 2. Italicize the names of guys you might shag after a little persuasion. 3. Leave the guys who don’t do anything for you alone. 4. Put a question mark after the guys you’ve never heard of. ? 5. Strike the guys you wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole. 6. ADD FOUR OF YOUR OWN AT THE END.
