Located on a small expansion shelf about midway between the Third and Fourth Circles, Musical Hell is presided over by Diva, a minor demon charged with passing judgement on the worst musicals ever committed to film. (She still hasn't figured out if this is their punishment or hers.) Take a seat on the bench and have your earplugs ready, because court is now in session.

New videos posted on the first Monday of the month. Other viewpoints, news, and general ramblings posted when they crop up.

At the Source: Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood

 For today's At the Source, we're going back a hundred years to a place where a rich queer culture lived in the shadow of imminent fascism. Wild, huh?

(Please note: the pre-roll accidentally got muted, but the rest of the video should be fine.)

Musical Hell: The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure

My children, I cannot begin to describe how terrible this movie is. I mean, here's twenty minutes of me doing it, and that still doesn't fully convey the depth of awfulness here.
