Yeah, it was really tough when I went over to Malaysia and it’s like… I want to know you and learn all these things about how and why I am the way I am, but at the same time we can’t really communicate?
Mixed problems, I guess.

Anonymous asked: Are the love/hate feelings just about the remake of Hairspray? What are your opinions (if any) about the original? I'm from Baltimore so the original has a special place in my heart.
Well, I can’t talk about the original, I’ve never seen it.
As far as the remake goes, my main gripes are the elements of Racism which are conveniently glossed over, the manner in which the black characters are treated, and general niggles regarding casting, misogyny etc.
Firstly, I dislike how none of the Black characters are allowed to have a separate existence from White people - their only role in the story as told is to give to White people, whether it be Seaweed giving up his dance moves, or the community at large endangering themselves in order to help Tracy get away.
Secondly, the issue of racism and segregation were vastly oversimplified - with it being obvious that the “good” white people were always for integration, and only the minority “bad” white people were against it, which is a gross perversion of the reality. When Tracy sings that if anyone tries to stop them marrying, they’ll call the NAACP, it rings hollow when you realise that at that point, interracial marriage was still verboten by law.
What’s more, by the theme of an “unattractive” or “undesirable” white girl taking a stand against prejudice which is then analogous and exactly the same as the institutional prejudice which was still socially and legally acceptable at the time.
In general gripes, I dislike that Edna was played by John Travolta, because there are few enough roles for women in that mode, and I dislike the painting of Velma & Edna Van Tussle in the Whore mode as an easy way of villifying them.
But all that said, I think it’s a remarkable movie.
oh my glob you guys, drama bomb!

I’m pretty much obligated to reblog Cod-Tier when she’s up on my dash because she’s a sweetie-pie who thinks I’m Dante Basco.
i laughed a lot, you really DO look like Dante Basco tho.
I forgot I had a photo of that very meeting:
And thus I can confirm that it was not a particularly Dante Basco day.
