Tao of the Day  
There's a time
And there's a place

Everybody's playing the game
But nobody's rules are the same
Nobody's on nobody's side

Better learn to go it alone
Recognize you're out on your own
Nobody's on nobody's side

Never make a promise or plan
Take a little love where you can
Nobody's on nobody's side

Never stay too long in your bed
Never lose your heart, use your head
Nobody's on nobody's side

Never leave a moment too soon
Never waste a hot afternoon
Nobody's on nobody's side

Never stay a minute too long
Don't forget the best will go wrong
Nobody's on nobody's side
- "Nobody's Side", Chess the Musical



Nothing gets nothing
Expect what you give
Nothing gets nothing
You get what you give
- "Nothing Gets Nothing", Killer Dwarfs

That could be a very interesting mash-up...

Oh dear Lord, Chess is my favorite musical - at least, the London version is. Such a perfect blend of allegory, intellectualism, passion, and the frustrated life of a man who's done everything asked of him and he still feels like he's lost.

*happy sigh* plus? Best use of typewriters as musical instrument ever.

I cannot wait until the day I have an opportunity to see this. I've never seen it live and fully intend to travel great expanses to see it if necessary.

Typewriters as a rhythmic device... oh, that makes me happy.

Did you see it live in London?

Unfortunately, I did not. I saw it, hell, 14 years ago in Stockholm and they did the London version. You can only imagine my surprise when I bought the soundtrack here in the US and got ... some bizarre countrified version. I like country, don't get me wrong, but ... it's like grabbing a glass of Coke and getting a mouthful of Dr. Pepper. Cognitive dissonance breaks my head.
