BBBAAAAAWWWWW is the sound they make…. that's descriptive enough, right?

Super excited for the Tony’s! …I usually am… it’s like my own little holiday. I even made a drinking game surrounding it. If you want the rules, let me know. They’re quite simple, and gauranteed to get you trashed.

Anyway, I thought I would talk about Tony Predictions:

For Best Play, I’m going to go with War Horse, for the singular reason that I’ve seen it. That’s how I roll. I was thoroughly impressed with War Horse. While maybe the story wasn’t the deepest thing ever (according to an economics major in one of my classes, so, pfft, what does he know?) it’s certainly captivating. You get caught up in the emotion and the characters, and the puppetry is absolutely amazing, to the point that you forget the War Horse isn’t a real horse.

Best Musical I think will be The Scottsboro Boys, because the theater crowd has been buzzing about it. If it’s not The Scottsboro Boys, then I think it’ll be Book of Mormon, because the theater world loves to hate religion. I know nothing about Catch Me If You Can (is it based on the movie?) or Sister Act… Sister Act is too new, and based on a movie, and there’s a huge backlash about that going on right now, moreso with the dramaturges, and people actually making theater than the people who put up the money to make theater.

The art world and I have a love hate relationship… well, at the best of times it’s a love-hate relationship. Actually, I think it can better be described as a “Fuck you pretentious douche bags”-“I am so awesome you just don’t understand me” relationship.

If there was one thing I learned from my art class last semester it’s that Art isn’t about content or context or talent. It’s about your ability to bull shit.

Artists take an elitist stance and elevate themselves above the masses and do stupid shit and call it “Art” because they can.

What got my dander up today?

Having just come off of beating Mass Effect in… like… a week… I felt like I had to write something here about BioWare. I felt compelled, because I realized that, of the few games of BioWare’s I have played, I’ve noticed something: the story is all the same.

Of course, this is hardly BioWare’s fault. I’d go so far as to call it their genius. See, you can do a lot with a storyline that is tried and true – a group of rebels over coming an evil empire? This is hardly a new idea, but there are any number of novels, movies, and video games that tackle this subject, and some manage to do it well – Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Final Fantasy VI are the first things to come to my mind. What comes to yours?

BioWare’s genius doesn’t lie in the story itself, but in the telling of the story.
