    Screw the American Press, etc etc

    I'll just quote the Sun and Mirror reference from Lily Allen.

    Either way, celebrating coming out as a proud lesbian right as your closeted father kills himself sounds like joy and ouch at the same time. Talk about poor timing. D:

    And tl;dr, lol, the media can suck.

    I don't think she was trying to be pompous? It seems weird at first, but what she means is that she feels that Fun Home is about her dad and his struggles with his own homosexuality rather than her own story. And she feels great sorrow and angst that he isn't alive to tell the story himself. She said in an interview that all the questions she gets in interviews about whether she feel "proud" and "happy" about the awards she is getting for an "autobiography" make her feel bittersweet. Bechdel was saying that she didn't like the idea of people think she was profiting from her father's death, if that makes sense?

    All of this stuff makes far more sense when you consider how utterly ridiculous, ill-informed, and insensitive the American Press can be. Not that the Sun and Mirror are cakewalks, lol

    It's hard to describe! Because it features dream sequences and is semi-autographical, whatever that means. Either way, it's an award-winning graphic novel/comic (?) which is about her relationship with her father more than about herself. If that makes any sense? Bechdel shies away from using the term "autobiography", because she finds that term heavily "self-aggrandising" and egotistical. LOL

    ...Anyway, doesn't matter what it is supposed to be. It's good, funny, and was nominated for a Pulitzer, like Next to Normal, so that's that!

    A musical about an aspiring writer (Bechdel) who grows up in a funeral home managed by her uptight father who then comes out of the closet and kills himself, only days after she comes out publicly as being a proud lesbian. Yeah, sounds like a Fun home (so many puns). So many layers, lol.

    I've seen Next to Normal. Can't talk; too busy crying.

    This song is called Changing My Major, a pun on attending college and coming out as a lesbian! The musical is based off a book written by Alison Bechdel, who invented the Bechdel test. Already, it seems interesting.

    I miss talking to you more regularly ;-;

    FYI, you need to see this musical. It's amazeballs. Seriously.

    I can honestly say that your reffings make me laugh a lot more than reffings should. Well done, sir.
