    JCSS is the best musical.

    The funk!

    The original film versions of the tracks are so good and Judas is awesome in it. I saw a live show last year in Regents Park outdoor theatre and would recommend it 100%.

    I grew up with it, so I can't say how much is nostalgia/childhood indoctrination, but '70s Jewison's definitely an interesting director.

    I found a new musical I like!

    Hands on a Hardbody, if you're unfamiliar with the term it's basically the most American kind of competition you could imagine. A bunch of people stand around with their hands on a truck and whoever can keep their hands on it the longest without passing out wins the truck. The musical features music by Trey Anastasio (of Phish) and a cast that includes Keith Carradine! Most of the music has a bit of a country-tinge to it, but the real showstopper is this gospel number halfway through:

    Here's another great number, a duet called "I'm Gone".

    I've listened through the album twice, but as far as I can tell there isn't really a strong central story, instead the songs are mainly the individual characters telling their personal stories. Those short stories are good stuff though, and the music is very good. Recommended!

    I just came back from seeing a musical at my local theatre. This one:

    (with this very cast!)

    It's a quite recent Swedish musical about Ingvar Kamprad, the founder of IKEA. Starts off a bit slow, but by song 3 or 4 when Ingvar has gotten his business off the ground and is interviewing employees it kicks into high-gear and stays pretty solid until the end. Good music, good performances. Yeah, all around good stuff!

    A musical furniture saga? I'm not convinced...

    Remember when this happened?

    It really did, y'know. It really happened.

    My wife used to love those. They get weirder and stupider as they go on.

    Weird Al's new Hamilton Polka is good stuff.

    I was expecting it to be a parody, but it's a pretty straight-up medley of the songs from the musical.
