Look at our baby! I can’t even …
There will be a day when I don’t obsessively reblog all things Flash. Today is not that day.
I found this on youtube and it’s beautiful

So it turns out that the entire gay bar scene is an homage to an earlier musical. A sexed-up, rocked-up homage, but it’s an homage to Lauren Bacall’s show 1970 Applause nonetheless.
There are way, way, way too many similarities for it to be a coincidence She skips the cast party! Her gay assistant Duane (!) knows a place to go! Even the layout of the weirdly empty club in this filmed performance looks like the club they go to in “Opening Night.”
It’s just delightful that they threw in this deep cut musical theater reference. Nobody in their target audience is going to get it. I didn’t get it until I read the comments at the AV Club review. But someday someone who got started on musical theater with Glee is going to watch this version of Applause and go ohhhhh!
This is incredible - there is no doubt in my mind it was a reference. The moment where she is recognised is so similar (though not exactly the same) to the extent that Rachel literally says the same dialogue before the music cuts in “I’m here for the night!”
Happy Earth Day from the AU Bookstore!

Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.
And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:
“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”
To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.
The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.
Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?
