See You Soon

 As you will have noticed, I haven't really used this blog this year. Part of that is because it got blocked by Facebook a year ago, which makes sharing posts difficult. It has been under review ever since. But also I never have time to read blogs any more, so I'm not sure if writing one is the right medium for me. However I do want some kind of site as a base if I DO want to use it and share my work, so I will be starting a new blog, which you can find here:

The LJ Conrad

It's pretty bare at the moment, but I hope to see you there soon.

Musical Monday #284

 Welcome to your first burst of musical cheer of the year...

All That Jazz from Chicago
Performed by Catherine Zeta-Jones
Written by John Kander and Fred Ebb

I feel like in the stage show, you get Roxie murdering her lover as part of All That Jazz so it's weird that it isn't part of it in the film, but it has been quite a while since I've seen either version so I could be misremembering. Catchy tune though.

Musical Monday #277

 For context, this homage to 'Moses Supposes' is being sung by figments of her imagination. I think it is also the last song that original Greg ever sings, even though it isn't really him.
