Hamilton

I don't believe this doesn't have a thread yet...

Anyone listening to the Mix Tape ? There are amazing bits of lyrics that never made their way to the stage. The rest of the tape is basically the saddest songs of the musical interpreted in new, differently depressing ways.

I listened to it once just before I left SG but since then life has been up in the air and not had the opportunity again. I see that Hamilton will open in London November this year, though I don't know when tickets go on sale if there is any chance to get them.  Maybe I can check and go to NY this summer since that flight is now just like a jumper to me

Hugh, why did my dumb parents have to not be from NY? Or London?

LNM's SNL intro is amazing.

I blame 1SO for throwing me into this Youtube rabbit hole.

I listened to some of the mixtape when it first came out. My heart is just too attached to the original album. The mixtape is a nice novelty, but the original album hasn't left my car CD-player in months.

LNM's SNL intro is amazing.

I love the way he throws in "Never Gonna Be President", which was great when I heard that part in the show and is now bittersweet because of what happened.

I love that the elements conspired to have that bit in the show so he could use it in the intro. I wish I would have listened to it four months ago though. It's too painful.

I wonder though, LMM must be getting tired of getting asked to shows so he can write a song for them. It's become a shtick. He did it for Colbert, among others.

Unless he likes writing those songs? That's my hope at least. LMM is one of the celebrities that I don't want to know too much about because I have him on such a pedestal. If I found out he was all jaded and awful from all his success, I'd be very sad.

I think he loves that people are appreciating his songcraft. Like the West Wing Weekly Podcast, I think he made the request. The request wasn't put on him.
