Musicals

We were having a dsicussion about musicals* in the shop - trying to convince one of our regulars that they were a *good* thing. We covered a load of classics from Singing in the Rain, Sound of Music, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Rocky Horror Show, West Side Story, The Happiness of the Katakuris, the Elvis and Cliff musicals and so on.

Anyway, we started taking the piss a bit about what musicals there were - things like Countdown: The Musical (where Cliff plays Richard Whitely) and also Deep Throat: The Musical were all the songs are actually gargles.

Anyway, one thing led to another and I have since discovered courtesy of Google that there are at least two Deep Throat-related msuicals out there. One called Lovelace: The Musical (based upon the lead actress of Deep Throat) and the other called Cumalot: The Deep Throat Musical.

I'm at work so haven't followed the links. To be honest even once I'm home I think I'll give them a wide berth.

People scare me sometimes...


* The conversation started when the customer told us that there is an anime coming out(released?) based on the Sound of Music (The Von Trap Family or something...?)

All time greatest musicals are Calamity Jane and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (despite the highly questionable plot of the latter where kidnapping seems to be seen as an acceptable way to get a wife ;)

But Deep Throat the musical...that's just entirely odd, and very disturbing.

And I really should get back to work instead of attempting to make terrible sexual puns on classical musical songs...Whip Crack Away has a whole new meaning now ;p (with Doris Day in cowgirl outfit)

Yeah those Deep Throat musicals seem a tad...alarming. That being said, there are a ton of kick ass entries in the genre (West Side Story! Everyone DANCEFIGHT!) not the least of which is the mighty Avenue Q which if you're unfamiliar with I cannot recommend heartily enough. This is, after all, the show that gave the world 'Everyone's a Little Bit Racist', 'You Can Be Loud As The Hell You Want When You're Making Love' and the god like 'The Internet is for Porn'.

Oh and an anime based on the Sound of Music? SOLD.

I'd assumed the Deep Throat ones were just part of the porn industries obsession with taking real film names and 'pornorising' them. Impressed (in that kind of 'meh' way) it was real.

Avenue Q is on our must get round to seeing list, which we really must get round to starting to work on.

Of course, in the list of great musicals, you have to add Team America.

So... for the betterment of humankind, I investigated this Deep Throat musical. It's done with puppets! Looked quite funny to me :)

All the men in my life keep getting killed by Candarian demons.
There was a very enjoyable musical in TO based on the Evil Dead films.

I want to try more musical role playing ( playing rpgs as musicals I mean).We played Classroom Deathmatch as a musical. It worked really well.
