Remember when I blindly hated Russel Brand? I fucked up.

"If women think I’m sexist, then they’re in a better position to judge than I am" A great thing to keep in mind.

^ If more people understood that concept do you know how quickly we would get rid of like 95% of sexism/racism/etc.

"A good deal of pop music has interesting lyrics, but they are not theater lyrics.  A songwriter who works in the theater must have a sense of what is theatrical, of how you use music to tell a story, as opposed to writing a song. Jonathan understood that instinctively."
-Stephen Sondheim
"Tom [Kitt] and Brian [Yorkey] shared with me that they had been deeply inspired by what Jonathan Larson had done for the medium of musical theater, and I know that Jonathan would in turn be as inspired by what they had done."
-Anthony Rapp
"In another timeline Jonathan Larson is 54 years old, and he’s pounding away at a keyboard, writing something new. I wish I could visit it."
-Lin-Manuel Miranda

READING LIST: Drowned Women
Victorians were obsessed with death in general and suicide in particular. For women who wanted to take their own lives, drowning was a common choice and the image of a female body floating in the water became a popular one in the Victorian imagination. This idea was heavily romanticised: it was like these women (especially “fallen women”) had been cleansed of their former sins and had found a quiet beauty in the (imagined) quiet serenity of their demise.
Artists and writers depicted women falling out of windows, jumping off bridges, and walking into lakes. Performances of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet were very popular, the painting of Ophelia by Millais (see above) was painted and exhibited in 1852, and in Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890), Lord Henry asks Dorian how he knows that “Hetty isn’t floating at the present moment in some starlit mill-pond, with lovely water-lilies around her, like Ophelia?”

The Rain Room is a 100 square metre field of falling water which visitors are invited to walk into. Sensors detect where visitors are standing, and the rain stops around them, giving them an experience of how it might feel to control the rain.

Out of every place in the world they picked the UK to add rain to.

"dearest cecilia, the story can resume. the one i had been planning on that evening walk. i can become again the man who once crossed the surrey park at dusk in my best suit, swaggering on the promise of life. the man who, with the clarity of passion, made love to you in the library. the story can resume. i will return, find you, love you, marry you. "

Women have always been healers. They were the unlicensed doctors and anatomists of Western history. They were abortionists, nurses, and counselors. They were pharmacists, cultivating healing herbs and exchanging secrets of their uses. They were midwives, travelling from home to home and village to village. For centuries women were doctors without degrees, barred from books and lectures, learning from each other, and passing on experience from neighbor to neighbor and mother to daughter. They were called “wise women” by the people, witches or charlatans by the authorities. Medicine is part of our heritage as women, our history, our birthright.
