Can we just forget this ever happened and go back to talking about Hamlet, Political Theatre and Actor's Equity? I just moved in with my girlfriend, and I'd LOVE to talk about that some more. I've got two plays heading for publication within the Month. Love to talk about that. I'm a jerk for missing Food for Fish... I can apologize for that here.
I was actually feeling lately like the theatrical blogsphere was becoming a very positive, friendly and useful place. Let's not make a liar of my instincts.
If the point of this was that people defend themselves when they feel attacked... I'm not actually surprised to hear that. If the point of it was that Scott feels he needs to fool people...that's really not my problem. I've never met Scott, and at this point, I feel like the only reason to do so is drink away ill will.
If this was what I think it was (Scott wrote something that was mostly a diatribe that he hadn't thought a ton about/Everyone goes apeshit for no reason/Scott tries to Justify His Behavior and Paint Everyone Else as a Team of Jerks) then I think I am suddenly reminded of audition season for the Musical Theatre Mainstage in college. Ugly...and pointless.
So, goodnight to this. I hope we see some Theatre Ideas from theatreideas.blogspot.com very soon. If not...you won't hear one more word from me about it.
