See it all dissolve around you

So, sitting here at 1 AM with my shiny laptop, listening to this song by Keane...

You think your days are uneventful
And no one ever thinks about you
She goes her own way, she goes her own way
You think your days are ordinary
And no one ever thinks about you
But we're all the same
And she can hardly breathe without you

She says she has no time...for you now
She says she has no time

Well, think about the lonely people
Or think about the day she found you
Or lie to yourself
And see it all dissolve around you

She says she has no time...for you now
She says she has no time...for you now
She says she has no time

Lonely people tumble downwards
My heart opens to you
When she says...

She has no time...for you now
She says she has no time...for you now
She says she has no time

And if you haven't heard of Keane, then I think you deserve to be educated. Google Keane right now or go on your illegal file-sharing program (Kazaa, Limewire, whatevs) and download something by them, because I guarantee it will be worth it. They're like my medication when I need to chill. So is Jimmy Eat World, but I digress. Anyway, I basically was listening to that song and checking out people's LJs and the lyrics are, clearly 'she has no time', and then all these people are whining about the fact that their lives are so busy. Why go online and post about it? Why do people come on here and post about things when they could be out DOING them? I guess I'm sort of a hypocrite, since this is a long entry about the fact that people come on here and whine about things or fight about things, but don't do anything to change anything, or fight FOR anything. You know the difference between fighting for something and fighting about something? Seriously, what's the last thing you fought for something that meant something to you? Fight for your right to party, fight like a brave, fight the power...whatever. Isn't it like, a huge difference?

Kind of like with Waverly Heights Academy drama and RENT. The tightasses up in administration, or whoever is against the production, aren't funding them because of "questionable content". The Toblerones have been asked to play a revue for RENT in support of them, and at first I was really hesitant because...hello? Cameron Steele as Roger. Hardly seems worth it. But now that I think about it...y'know, that's immature. What does the fact that Cameron Steele is in it have to do with the fact that the WHA players are fighting an uphill battle with the administration for a production that's been out since 1994 or 1995, or something, have to do with anything? It shouldn't. So yeah, if any of you WHA drama people that possibly have this link from my MySpace account, or the 'Rones MySpace, are reading this...we're a definite on your revue. RENT isn't about HIV/AIDS as a cause of homosexuality or drug use. Those elements are in the musical, but...hello? This is fucking 2004. Shouldn't we be a little bit more tolerant or understanding or EDUCATED to know that these are issues that plague us at this very moment?

At the end of 2004, the CDC estimates that 415,193 people were living with AIDS in the USA.

Of these,

5% were white
43% were black
20% were Hispanic
1% were of other race/ethnicity
Of the adults and adolescents with AIDS, 77% were men. Of these men,

58% were men who had sex with men (MSM)
21% were injection drug users (IDU)
11% were exposed through heterosexual contact
8% were both MSM and IDU.
Of the 93,566 adult and adolescent women with AIDS,

64% were exposed through heterosexual contact
34% were exposed through injection drug use

An estimated 3,927 children were living with AIDS at the end of 2004, of whom 97% probably acquired the infection from their mothers.

I'm not trying to turn this into some righteous AIDS fight, but I know how the conservative assholes at WHA think. They think that by putting on a show that portrays people with disease, with 'alternative lifestyles', that they are in some way promoting people to go out there and shoot up, etcetera. Most of them have not ever even seen or read RENT. And I am going to assume (because I crossed aforementioned conservative WHA admins several times during my high school career) that they think the entire play portrays people with AIDS as people who think it's no big deal, or that they don't deal with it at all in any serious context. Not that if they KNEW about the serious context, they'd approve. They'd want something happy-go-lucky that doesn't bother anyone... like "Annie". The sun'll come out tomorrow, right Annie?! ...God, I have always hated that expression, or song, or whatever the hell you wanna call it. 'The sun will come out tomorrow', so WHAT? How miserable do you have to be for that to cheer you up? Hey, I know your life sucks right now, and you don't have any family or friends, but...it's gonna be sunny tomorrow! ...Is that supposed to make you happy?

...This is turning into a rant. Just know that The Toblerones are in full support of the WHA players doing RENT and shoving it in the administration's faces. Do us proud, people, even if your name IS Cameron Steele and you're bound to suck anyway.
