"even the orchestra is beautiful"

so, life is disappointing?

forget about it!

we have no troubles here

I got to see a local production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch last week and it was genuinely SO AMAZING WOW. What a great show, especially live. The local Yitzhak was not quite as dreamy as Lena Hall but still incredibly talented, and the local Hedwig was absolutely captivating. I’m so glad I saw it! (Support local theatre!!)

…in here, life is beautiful!

I can’t tell you how many people would tell me to change my name and just be like: “Well, you don’t LOOK like a Raúl.” When you say Raúl Esparza you expect, you know, some sort of swarthy dude to come in with a mustache or a hairnet or something. Like, I don’t know what it was that people expected, but that stereotype of what Latin is, I didn’t fit it.

It’s like a photographer went out on the island, La Grande Jatte, and took a picture of a lot of people strolling in the park. The humanity of it, I thought… These people don’t know they’re gonna be immortal. And so I’m gonna write a song about that. That it’s gonna be outside of themselves, and they’re gonna be singing about what themselves and they’re doing. But they’re gonna be acknowledging that they are immortal. It all leads to the word forever. Which is- when I wrote that word, I cried, because I thought, that’s what it’s about. And I then decided, that I would do it all in one sentence. It’s a lyric that’s in one sentence. Uh, because there is a kind of… I don’t know how to put it. It’s like it’s eternal, it’s infinite, whatever, whatever- it’s what I feel about art… It just has no beginning and no end. It’s just one thing. Then I could see that they would all be singing that one idea. Um… That here we are in a park. And we’re gonna be here forever. That’s why it has that… It’s got an almost funerary beat to it, you know, it’s almost a funeral march. But it isn’t quite. It’s a triumphant march
