Blood and tragedy

One of my favorite parts of "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" is when the boss of the troupe of actor's says,

"We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see."


I find it applies to my friends, and life in general, except I believe I would re-write it as follows:

"We're more of the drama, lj, and gaming school. Well, we can do you drama and livejournal without the gaming, and we can do you drama and gaming without the livejournal, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you gaming and livejournal without the drama. Drama is compulsory. They're all drama, you see."

I love what you've done with that quote! You need to have Mooney put it on a shirt.

My take on it all is thus: Gaming attracts the subsect of society that is extremely creative, but too socially inept and/or intelligent to really make it in professional theatre. Hence, the price I have to pay for being able to hang out with extremely creative and intelligent people (and, y'know, express my own creativity) is all the drama.

I'm just bein' funny. There's a lot of craziness on the various lists, f-lists, gaming groups, and whatnot out there.

Yeah. I'm really saddened by all this mess, and particularly upset about my own part in any of it.
