Given the, um, enthusiasm on the posts about the rental housing ordinance, I thought we all deserved to take a break from the intensity of the discussion. So I’m going to talk about my latest obsession, Hamilton.
That’s right, I may be the last musical super fan on earth to actually get around to downloading the album and listening to it, but just between you and me I haven’t listened to much else since downloading the album last Thursday. That’s right, it’s been on solid wall of Hamilton listening, with a Friday break to catch Prince with just a piano and a microphone, which was as amazing as it sounds.
If you generally shy away from musicals, this is one that you might want to catch a listen to because it is so much awesome.
Here’s a great video about the making of the Hamilton album. I am particularly obsessed with Leslie Odom, Jr’s Aaron Burr.
