1). Proposition 8 was repealed on Wednesday! The ruling has this notable sentence:
Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite- sex couples are superior to same-sex couples.
2). Eleana Kagan was confirmed and sworn in, becoming the fourth woman to serve on the Supreme Court.
3). I saw The Kids Are All Right which is good and I’ll elaborate on later.
4). I successfully moved from Iowa to my new apartment on the North Side of Chicago, which, yes, is nowhere near UIC, but an apartment in my neighborhood on the North Side is more affordable than an apartment in University Village or Tri-Taylor.
5). In this morning’s New York Times, there’s a profile of Ryan Murphy, who is the director of the upcoming Eat, Pray, Love—which is not to be confused with Eat, Vomit, Salmonella—as well as the creator of Nip/Tuck and Glee. In the profile, there’s this sentence that confused me a bit:
Additionally, he will get a financial piece of “Glee” soundtrack and touring sales — considerations that could add another $15 million — and has the option to mount “Glee” on Broadway.
That brief sentence makes it sound like it would be a musical based off of the series, but that confuses me because I thought that what made Glee a unique and different show was that it utilizes musical numbers in every episode and is on television. Maybe it could work if Murphy would decide to mount it on Broadway, but at the very least, it would definitely sell.
6). And, via Amanda Palmer’s blog, this might just be the most amusing picture I’ve seen all week.
