mixtape: of another age

So, over the weekend I was able to catch Dee Snider performing as part of the Broadway musical Rock of Ages. I have to be honest, I was a little bit of a skeptic, but, I thoroughly enjoyed. I wasn’t a big 80s glam fan, but I still have a soft spot for some of it… I’m not a Broadway fan necessarily, but I do adore a great thematic idea… and there’s more… All in all, I must admit, it was well done. Albeit, I’d still prefer an original score and all, the store is weaved into some fantastic hits of the day in ways that I couldn’t deny, the humor, albeit again something I struggle with (even with Disney-type movies) was on point and appealed to my sense of sarcasm and really the reconnection with a long lost friend was for me a fantastic attribute at least 9 months overdue. So, the fantastically unrealistic happy ending got me to thinking… how would I rewrite parts of it, and of course, reality to this point shone forth, so queue up your shit and geeeeeeeeet in horns in the air to these instead?
