Who grew up with the Muppets? Or Sesame Street? Jim Henson and his singing army of felted fluffballs were one of the greatest influences of my childhood.
So when I recently discovered Avenue Q I fell in love. It's like Sesame Street (heck, some of the characters and songs are blatant parodies.), only the characters are all in their twenties, and instead of dealing with their ABCs and 123s it's more racism, unemployment, finding their place in life, drinking, sex, messy breakups and Gary Coleman. With puppets. Yes, sex and puppets, how could it go wrong?
The songs are so incredibly sing alongable. "It Sucks to Be Me", "If You Were Gay" (Which half the internet already knows of course.), "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist", "The Internet is for Porn" (Trekkie Monster is so awesome!), "I'm Not Wearing Underwear", "My Girlfriend Who Lives in Canada", "There's a Fine Fine Line", "Life Outside Your Apartment", "Schadenfreude" (My personal favourite.) and "For Now". The writers definitely knew what they were doing. It's incredibly hard to try and sing along to these songs when you're busy wetting yourself at the lyrics. I've been killing my soundtrack nonstop for the past three days.
How I could have gone this long without discovering Avenue Q is beyond me. The day that I get a chance to see/perform this show I'll jump on it like a rabid fangirl on sasunaru pr0n. Youtube
So the celebrate my new fandom, I thought I'd branch out into stamp making, viola!Kate MonsterLucy the SlutMickeyPrincetonRodMs. ThistletwatTrekkie Monster
