When You're A Jet...

I woke up from my annual post-Easter nap to find West Side Story on the TV (TCM, I think -- there don't seem to be any commercials). That's pretty cool. I quite dig that movie. I also like the thought of gangs getting together to negotiate the terms of an upcoming fight, and even considering limiting the weapons available. I think that we'd live in a better country if more of the gangs behaved like that. And also if they sang and danced.

In other news, thanks to tawnyleona for the transcriptions for my phone posts from after Easter rounds were complete and after the Sunrise service. I wish there were a way to lock down a phone post to prevent further transcription attempts while retaining attribution for the person who gave the transcription, instead of saying "multiple users" or whatever it says.

You should've heard my husband..."WHY are you listening to that guy over and over? Am I missing something funny?"

And now I have that song in my head..."From your first cigarette to your last dying day!"

Well I couldn't very well let my HUSBAND know that was the real reason!

You're secret is safe with me.

RIFF:
The Jets are gonna have their day
Tonight

BERNARDO:
The Sharks are gonna have their way
Tonight


Best music ever written. Best dancing ever coreographed. Best story ever written, even if they stole it from Shakespeare.

It would be nice if gangs allnegotiated terms, sang, and danced. On the other hand, West Side Story did show both sides:

Life can be bright in America
If you can fight in America
Life is all right in America
If you're all white in America

I love West Side Story but I think that's only because my mom was Maria in her high school play so I grew up listening to it. And I'd almost swear the guy doing sports on the news last night was named Krupke.
