This is actually from 2009, but you probably had a lot going on then so it’s totally understandable that you might have missed it. Anyway, it starts off a little slow and you’ll wonder if it’s going to go anywhere but around two-and-a-half minutes in somethin爱上海419论坛网g happens that should make you smile, and given how hard smiles are to come by these days it seems silly to turn any down. Enjoy.
Why Can’t Every Single Person Just Admit That ‘Hamilton’ Is The Culmination Of All Human Achievement?
The right kind of “Hamilton” contrarianism: Spend $2–5k for tix and you’re left no choice but to adore it. Otherwise you’re a fool.

On any of those rare occasions when you get a glimpse of someone wondering whether Hamilton might not be the greatest th阿拉爱上海同城对对碰ing that ever happened in 50,000 years of culture do you find yourself stunned, surprised or fearful for the heretic’s safety? I mean, remember the last guy who dared to doubt? Of course you don’t, no one’s heard of him since. I only mention the tweet above to note just how unusual it is, not because I in any way endorse it or any other negative or merely neutral commentary concerning Hamilton. In fact, I’m full of self-criticism for even bringing it up.
If you feel grossed out by the recent contretemps concerning “selfies,” Genius, or that guy in the Observer who… something, I don’t know — or if you in fact feel grossed out for engaging in or promoting engagement of discussions about “selfies,” Genius, or whatever the hell it was that guy in the Observer… do you think they even edited that or do you think they were just like, “It doesn’t matter, media Twitter is going to take it and run with it for us either way” — then perhaps you might find this debate over literary tran爱上海 龙凤419论坛slation to be something of a gross-out eraser. There is a bit of background reading that you might have to do but it’s a small price to pay for feeling like you’ve involved yourself in something other than “selfies,” Genius, or God, I don’t fucking know, it seems like you’d have to exert a phenomenal amount of effort to be simultaneously as imperial and impenetrable as that guy in the Observer was and yet you come away with the impression that it all came[……]

I mean, look, I’m not stupid. I’ve got a mirror. I go outdoors. I went to high school. I know I’m not a movie star. I can tell when people turn away because they think there’s something off about my face. I hear the laughs. You get used to it, after a while. It doesn’t ever stop hurting, not really, but you learn to not be surprised. You don’t get to be my age without realizing how other people see you. And like I said, it never feels good, but if you remind yourself to be accepting of who you are and you work on the qualities you can control, you can make yourself into someone who other people won’t recoil from, someone whose inner light shines bright enough that at least a few other people will see it. You make do with what you have and you try to be happy with the person you’ve become[……]
★★★ Lumpy sun and darkness played over the unnatural yellow surface of an immense spill of old popcorn by the side of the movie theater. Pigeons and a starling were at it with no real haste. Individual kernels were scattered up the block, casting their individual shadows behind them. All day, the light was hyper-precise. Every strand of hair showed on every person’s head, every pucker at the seams of their puffy coats. Taxicab grilles coming down Fifth Avenue looked as sharp as thinning shears. For once the wind chill was worth caring about; the thermometer reported spring but the wind made the爱上海同城对对碰 419网 shoulders brace against winter. Furry hoods were back in evidence. Heavy ripples raced along a gutter puddle.

★★ Clean clouds, blank as paper, floated on the sky seen from bed. They gathered into something unpleasant, another of late winter’s near-daily interludes of gloom, carrying past the season’s end. Midafternoon unexpectedly broke it, though, and the streets filled with sun again. Aged trash was in the treetops on Broadway but leaves were in the trees on 72nd, and there was a persistent soft edge to the cold. Not persistent enough, though. In the course of a piano lesson the light and softness departed completely. A truck laden with salt turned the corner, calcium chloride fluid sloshing in its translucent tanks. One palm frond lay in t上海桑拿论坛爱上海he street. By bedtime there were snowflakes passing in the lights, whitening the upholstery on the luxury building’s rooftop chairs.
“Researchers have identified a single, universal facial expression that is interpreted across many cultures as the embodiment of negative emotion. The look proved identical for native speakers of English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese and American Sign Language. It consists of a furrowed brow, pressed lips and raised chin, and because we make it when we convey negative sentiments, such as ‘I do not agree,’ researc城建爱上海业主论坛hers are calling it the ‘not face.’”
