At my house we are getting all the costumes ready for Halloween tomorrow. I absolutely love the makeup, hair and costumes that I get to experiment with on Halloween and dressing up every year appeals to my usually well concealed dramatic side.
Drink of the Week:
Not Your Father’s Root Beer. This tastes like a well done small batch root beer, but includes an unexpected (and almost undetectable) 6% alcohol. This would be amazing in a grown up root-beer float.
Blog of the Week:
In Praise of Roots by Addie Zierman at How to Talk Evangelical. Addie speaks of her time in the mission Teen Mania and how the charity’s headquarters is now in foreclosure and its leader, Ron Luce is evading a warrant. She compares teens involved in that program to apple trees that haven’t developed roots and couldn’t support the fruit they were expected to bear.
Song of the Week:
“Time Warp” from the Rocky Horror Picture Show performed by the cast of Glee.
When I was a senior I took an American Prizewinners literature class at the local community college. Coming from a tiny private school, what an eye opening class that was! After reading Angel’s in America:A Gay Fantasia on National Themes, our professor led a discussion about what “campy” meant and to illustrate, she showed us clips of Rocky Horror Picture Show. I had never seen anything like it, but I developed a secret love of camp. So in honor of Halloween, here is the cast of Glee performing “Time Warp”. You can’t really get more campy than that! (Also, what high school allows Rocky Horror Picture Show as their school play?!?)
