MMM – This Side of the Sky

Aghh, technology is against me today, so I’m going to have to ask you to indulge me and make a little more effort than you normally would on one of these posts. For some reason, my laptop and my Internet connection have decided not to speak to one another, so I’m typing this on on my tablet.  Problem is, I can’t figure out where to find the embed code on either the mobile version of YouTube or the app,  so I’m just going to link to the video I wanted to share today and you’ll have to do the rest.

For the musical part of the post, I am sharing This Side of the Sky from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new musical, Stephen Ward. I saw this show while I was in London and while it’s probably not Lloyd Webber’s best, the music is still enjoyable and this was one of the songs that stood out for me. Anyone squicked by the age gap can be assured that despite the song, the relationship between these two characters is more father-daughter than romantic/sexual.  A messed up father-daughter relationship,  but one nonetheless.

And in the interests of not having to deal with any more YouTube on the tablet, I thought this might work for the mirth part of the post. I think many readers of this blog can probably relate.
