They Stumbled Out Crying
First night tonight of Fade To Black and it went very well, by the final show (we do three shows back to back at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm) I was in the "emotional fascism zone" and wept a lot as I cleared up pictures of my dead wife. It proved to be an intense trip for the audience as they stumbled out crying into the London night. Tickets are going fast but if you are based in the capital and want to come go here to book your free tickets. Be nice to see you.
Onto more pressing matters then, that's right you guessed it: blogs. Three pressing blog issues have come up for me, the first is where an earth has Antony Mouse gone? He either is having sex a lot with his new girlfriend or studying too hard for exams or perhaps thinks blogging is for losers. All I can say is post to let us know you're safe young man.
The blog world is full if right-wing, neo-conservative maniacs who believe in free trade and killing Arabs but That Dude From Philly is kinda lovable in an annoying way, even if his blog turns my stomach it's worth it to see the Balloon Pirate smash their imperialist bad math to bits.
The third and final blog is a lot more problematic and I'll tell you why. See, I like Red a lot, she's a fine lady and without each other we wouldn't be in the blog world at all, we both stumbled upon each other at the right time and blossomed together. Cool. Trouble is she links to Melanie who, God bless her, is a racist. Not in a bad way, like thinking all non-whites are sub-human or that the Jews run the world, but in a far more insidious and essential way, rather like how my dad's a big old bigot.
Now I've read other parts of Melanie's blog and I can see why Red linked it in the first place, it was good old, down home, funny, female based fun; the kinda stuff Red links to a lot. Fair play. Little did she know that she was linking to someone with those kinda views. In my heart of hearts I wish Red wouldn't link to her. Maybe that's wrong of me but that's how I feel and I needed to speak out. Love to you Red.
As I type this Melanie has just left a comment with some dictionary definitions of Afrocentrism and Black supremacy, which only go on to expose her whole messy belief system. It's so entrenched it saddens me.
