Musical Obsessions: Alexander Hamilton


I finally broke down and bought the two-CD set and Libretto for Hamilton.
It's absolutely fantastic. Lin-Manuel Miranda is a bloody genius. Unfortunately I now realize how crappy my sound system is. Something's wrong with one of the connections to my speakers. Aaaaaggghhhh! When I get in an obsessive mood about music, which I recognize coming on now, I play it until it wears out, or my brain fries from trying to memorize the lyrics. I'll be playing it day and night until somebody in the house cuts off the electricity. lol Add my obsession with history, political theory and international relations and you have a deadly mix. I'm already quoting lines from Hamilton in my letters to the editor about North Korea. lol

Broadway's only a few hundred miles up the track, but I'm not sure I want to pop for June 28 $390 nosebleed tickets on stub hub.

Off to Best Buy to get a new CD player or something.

Until now I've been mainly playing the music a sweet young thing used to dance to for me late at night at my cabin. Miranda has changed my focus (hopefully only temporarily, she still comes by and I hope I never get that obsessive lol).

So what's your newest musical obsession?

She came by my cabin Friday. We listened to a few songs from Hamilton, but she wanted to talk, and H. doesn't make good background music. She asked me to copy my CDs onto discs for her to listen to later. She invited me to join her and some friends at a street musical fest nearby on Saturday. I went. Mixed bag, but pretty good for ska and latin. I took some pics, but they show her face, which violates my policy re posting her pics. You can find a non-face pic here and the Livin39 is Easy updated 912 if you're curious. And no, she wasn't dressed like that at the fest.

Have not caught the Hamilton bug yet, but I recently posted a Quiet Riot play list in my alternate Blog.

Feel free to visit if you need a head bang to get you out of your latest obsession.

Alas.

The world is a vampire set to drain...

Hmmm. I'll bet she could find something in Hamilton to dance to.
