Had to break down and buy the soundtrack to 'Sweeney Todd' because all the songs were stuck in my head. Nothing worse than trying to get to sleep and having songs run through your head with lyrics too vague to indulge in. When did I become one of those fags whose into musical theater? Its like I reached a certain age and my genes decided that it was time for my nipple hairs to turn gray while I sing off-key verses from 'Wicked.' This is so not right. I fear to think what else may be in store for me as the calendar pages turn.

It's a lot like Logan's Run, where, when you reach a certain age, you go to carousel.

Except for us gay men, our nipple hairs turn gray and they send us to Carousel, and other Broadway musicals.

Well... this one really made me giggle!
Thing is, also, to me you're among those folks I could never fathom getting old... the "Forever Young" type of guy. That's surely because of your spirit, so very much "enfant terrible"...

Hey Happy Birthday a bunch of days late.

I think we have a bunch of latent genes, and your musical theater gene decided to activate (kind of like Wonder Twin powers - but less useful? Zan could have been a weather god but chose to hide in a bucket - sheesh.) Make the power of musical theater yours to wield. (Grey chest hair is more of a passive skill - maybe a type of camoflauge.)

I am still waiting for my neatness or fashion gene to kick in and I have given up on the gene for dancing. And I wonder what the hidden gift is in presbyopia - sigh.

Sweeney Todd is sarcastic and gory, which most musicals are not.

Don't sweat it too much. I grew up listening to The King & I and My Fair Lady and I will totally admit to still liking both of them. That doesn't mean I don't jam out to the MC5, Sabs and the Clash any more! It means you have wide musical tastes.
