Guess who I'm gonna be missing like mad?

We just got back from dropping Santiago off at the Chihuahua Hilton (a.k.a. N@'s) and I am already a little achy in the blood pumper... He's in great hands... but they aren't mine... *sniff sniff* I know he'll have a bee-last with N@ though, and that's what counts!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Shawn, Didier
and Satiago too!

Unjust flight restrictions!

With less than 48 hours before we jet off to France I am at that awkward stage of having to weigh my luggage to ensure I don't get ripped off at check in...

... I mean REALLY! How they expect a fag to travel to PARIS FUCKING FRANCE for TWO WEEKS with no more than 23 kg of checked luggage and 10 kg of carry on is BEYOND me...

Ah but Mitty has a work around... here's a tip... LapTop bags are FREE carry on, with no weight restrictions... I have one of those expandable ones... and I can assure you it will be packed tighter than a polish sausage over Easter!

Hairspray rhymes with Gay

... I'm just sayin'

I'm also sayin; that it was fun, f-u-n: fun! and different from both movie versions, which I am thankful, because, less face it if it was the same I'd be a little pissed to think I coulda just popped the DVD into the player and curled up on dah sofa with my main men...

Also, too, I am glad that there were at my count two songs not in the re-make of the movie, but sad to say my FAV song, "Hairspray" (the opening song) from the Waters original production was still not to be seen or heard... *le sigh*.

The cast was great, but I gotta say a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittle disappointing in that the lead (Tracy) couldn't really dance that well... and considering the plot, it's a rather large omission 9pun intended)...

The singer that played Motormouth Maybelle had some lungs! (both figurative and literal) that really brought down the house... twice!

I think the BEST moment of the night though, was when Edna Turnblad fell out of character after a slightly ribald line near the end of "You're Timeless to Me" when her husband says 'Shabat Shalom' and she says 'I didn't know you were Jewish' then he replies, 'You can't always tell...' and then he grabs and hugs her from behind and she says 'Oh, you can always tell'... to which the audience lost it, prompting her to lose it and requiring the orchestra to hold the note for a good 45 seconds while Miss Edna composed herself. Some might not like when an actor falls out of character like that, but I have to say that personally I love it. The Audience totally ate it up too hooting and applauding the gaff. It shows me that they are just as fallible as the rest of us and it actually brings me deeper in, oddly enough; it's an opening that you share directly and immediately with that cast member, if not more.

Was it better than the movie[s]? I'd say not; but I'd also say that there is something I love about both of them. And really when you contrast and compare they are two different movies with different subplots and all but completely different music and soundtracks ('The Madison' being the only exception); and so too was this version of the musical, with two songs that did not appear in the re-make, at least what went on screen..., and of course for ease of staging some plot lines altered and a couple subplots completely removed. Still it gave it a feeling of something you were experiencing for the first time.

Overall I still have to go with Waters' 1988 original as my fav fav fav, because it's simply darker, camper and lets face it the original.

It was a fantastic evening's entertainment and we owe it all to N@ and her Goiter (heh) Feel better soon Miss Lauzon... Hugs and love from two fagellahs in the gaybourhood.

I wish my hair was 10 feet high!

Guess where I'm going tonight?!

N@ had an extra ticket for opening night and is taking little ole moi!

And get this... N@ is a Hairspray VIRGIN! She ain't never done seen neither movie. I KNOW! (seems she lives in a cave... with no cable or satellite) This is gonna be like taking the little kid raised by wolves into the big city...

Ain't nuthin'like a night of gay music theatah.

****** UPDATE ******

Well it seems N@ was not meant to see Hairspray... She's home sickity-sick... and has ever so graciously donated her ticket to Mr D... so while it's a totally bummorama that I won't be there with my favourite Gal, I will be there with my Favourite Guy, and as NA@ said "Should've known it wasn't in the cards to break up a gay couple for a MUSICAL" Alas this is true... The Gay Musical Gods will not be toyed with.
