    I was thinking about this yesterday. Isn’t it amazing that just a few years ago the “woke” crowd was celebrating the shit out of “Hamilton”? Today the same knuckleheads want to remove any sign of history of our founding?

    That is such a good point, though i've always hated the Hamilton soundtrack.

    We used to have to have it on rotation at B&N, and it was the most pretentious,
    awful thing i've ever heard.

    Then, i remember, my sister in law saying:
    I started running daily, and the Hamilton soundtrack is my go-to
    to get pumped.

    I could barely conceal an eye roll, LOL.

    Yeah, I can’t deal with that soundtrack except for one song. I think this is pretty brilliant.

    I do not mean this to sound homophobic, but there’s something about an effeminate mans voice, talk-singing, is like nails on the chalkboard.

    Watched Hamilton this weekend, and when it was over was left wondering what the big deal was.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    A man's rights rests in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box

    Not to employ prejudice, here, but I’m guessing a good section of this board isn’t predisposed to enjoying musicals

    I think Miranda is brilliant. Not the best actor in the world, but I enjoy what he does and anyone who can freestyle the way he can will always amaze me. Turning the founders’ disagreements into rap battles is hilarious, and you’d think this would be a moment that could bring people together—celebrating the creation of the country using casting that’s representative of what the country has become, and can continue to strive to be.

    The musical was very good, if a tad long, and a few of those people are going to be stars. It took watching the making of Frozen II to realize the voice of Kristoff is the guy from Netflix’s Mindhunters who also apparently originated the role of King George.

    There is only two musicals where people just spontaneously bust out into song I can tolerate. Willy Wonka and Scrooge (Finney).

    Watched it this weekend and I thought it was incredibly well done, I wasn’t sure how the different music stylings would fit into the story and that was the most creative part. I thought it was great

    Miranda and company were too divisive off stage for it to bring everyone together. He hasn’t responded to the rise of “Should Hamilton be cancelled?”

    When Harry Potter and Hamilton are being threatened with cancellation, you know it’s getting ugly.

    Wasn’t the vibe I got from the special features, but I also haven’t been caught up in Hamil-fandom to know much other than Miranda’s support of a Puerto Rican terrorist. We had tickets for July 1 and I’d only heard clips in newsreels or late night performances, etc.. This was about as fresh of a viewing one could have in 2020.

    I long ago had to decide to separate artists from their art. If I had to think about Eddie being a dick or Tom Morello’s politics each time a song came on, I’d be left with nothing to listen to or watch.

    Bro they are thinking-asking for PAW patrol to be cancelled. A harmless kids show about some pups doing stuff to help people.


    It’s getting out of control.

    Protest speed limits or something. No a fucking cartoon.
