It's easy if you work at it.

To be fair, I have only seen the recent adaptation. I can't speak to all versions of the musical.

I like that version better. The way that many musical theater involves BOOMING VOICES where the emphasis is on hitting the note loud enough instead of the emotion. The movie had a lot more freedom to do that....also they picked professional singers who are also hollywood actors (except fro Amanda Seyfried...fucking Cossette).

Hamilton (if you can catch a rare image of it on youtube) had the cast use microphones, which I never thought you could do in a musical. Still, I feel like its more of an album than a recording of a musical on stage.

Also Lin-Manuel Miranda is my new boyfriend, so he can do know wrong.

Are we all just not going to talk about the fact Lucas Black doesn't seem to age?

Why the hell is toast a thing? did someone just decide, you know what, this bread is good, but I'm going to burn it more and see how that tastes. Or was there a method behind it, like they were trying to come up with a more effective way of making sandwiches cause the bread always got too soggy and someone was like, hey, let's make the outside of it crunchy and that way it won't fall apart from too much mayo. Toast confuses me.

Don't dis toast.  I lost my sense of smell when I was around 6 years old.  Toast is the only smell I miss.  I'd pay quite a bit to be able to smell toast again.

How's your sense of taste?

Took me a long time to understand and admit that it is different.  My tongue still works.  I still pick up sweet, sour, salty, and bitter, so I thought I could taste just fine.  But I understand now that it's quite different than a normal person's.  Your nasal passages are connected to your mouth and throat (hence the ability for milk to come out of disgusting people's noses), so when you are chewing on something you are actually smelling it even stronger than when it was outside your mouth, but your brain combines it all into what we call taste. 

For example, I thought all skittles tasted the same (like sugar).  Bananas are just a mushy texture.  I don't like overly spicy foods because all I can taste is the chemical reaction, none of the flavor.  Same goes for very bitter things, like coffee and alcohol.  I've taken tiny sips, but never had a full glass of beer because it just tastes like a big cup of bitterness, and I've never had the urge to get drunk. 

Things still taste good or taste bad, it's just different.  Perhaps a lower resolution than a normal sense of taste.  Actually, color blind is probably a better analogy.  I can still see shape and form the same as you, and a few colors, but where you see variation in some colors, I see them as both the same.
