A: I’m not a particularly religious person–
D: No kidding, A. Heathens are more religious than you.
A: Ahem. . .
A: Of course, Godspell isn’t what I consider religious.
D: You mean, aside from the parable-base storytelling, the crucifixion and the whole, you know, Jesus-thing?
A: (Eye roll) Yes, D, despite all that. I do think it has a wonderful message, and I especially like that it tells that message without all the other trappings that can to get in the way.
D: Are you really going to ruminate on religion and Godspell. . . .again?
A: No on the first part – this is so not that kind of blog.
D: And the second?
A: Oh come on, D! Godspell is the only thing The Boy currently allows on the iPod when we’re together.
D: The only thing? Really?
A: Okay, he may have also discovered Commentary!, the musical soundtrack to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog:
(Thank you, oh-so-much, Jesus, for introducing that to him. Of course, since The Boy insists on being Jesus’ mini-me, and since Jesus played Jean Valjean once, I may finally be able to watch Le Misérables – as trade-offs go, I’m good with it).
D: I’ve just realized why you need me around.
A: . . . This is going to be interesting. Pray tell, why is that, D?
D: You speak in parentheticals. Confusing parentheticals. All the time! Even your music choices this week are disjointed and not appropriately, nor punningly, set-up.
A: Is punningly a word?
D: No. But it works all the same.
A: Indeed. So, what’s your point, Druid?
D: I am obviously here, in part, to present your words in something resembling logical order.
A: This from the time traveler, for whom logical order—
D: A . . .
A: Okay, okay, I can accept that. What’s the other part?
D: Brilliance. Sheer and utter brilliance. In fact, you can’t stop this brilliance.
A: Oh yeah? Well . . . um . . .
D: Yeah, what have you got, A?
A: I don’t have anything—
A: –Except majesty!
D: I think that’s cheating.
A: How is that cheating?
D: I’m not certain, but give me a few moments, and I’m sure I’ll come up with something.
A: I wouldn’t bother. Majesty always wins, and we have got to go – I have to find some waterproof eye makeup, so I can prepare myself to weep-I mean watch the last three shows this weekend!
This one gets me every single time. The last show on Sunday is going to be a killer.
D: You big softie.
A: Says the cat-man warrior.
A: And on that note, we bid you all a fond good-day – have a great Friday and an excellent weekend everyone!

Commentary the Soundtrack? How did I not know about that? I need to get out more. Thanks for the laughs today (it being Monday and I am way late in getting over here), I’ve been needing them. 🙂
I didn’t know about it either until Jesus raved about it to Tom (apparently he wants to produce a musical/production of it). It is ridiculous and awesome, and now that we have the blu-ray of the Sing-Along blog, we can watch the show and have the commentary behind it.
Katie, Katie, Katie. I’m going to have to grab me a version of Godspell to know more about what you’re talking about. I remember having listened to the soundtrack in school–a long time ago. But I don’t remember it now. Perhaps one day. Great seeing “The Boy” involved in the whole production! My kids love acting as well and we have an end-of-the-year recital to attend to in June. Can’t wait! Ooh, thanks for the videos, too! 🙂
🙂 Thank you, Jack. Godspell is, at first blush, kinda odd – lovely, but odd. He’s really going to town on the arts – he asked me last night when the next set of auditions was! I have a feeling its going to be a very busy summer.
Thanks. Enjoy your weekend as well.
Thank you, John!
Enjoy the weekend.
Thank you, Charles!
YAY! Have fun this weekend, both of you!
🙂 Thank you!! It’s going to be a blast.
