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.

Musical Hell Review: Love's Labour's Lost

Happy February, everybody!  Somewhere in between going to BroadwayCon and a huge uptick in my business workload, I've managed to knock out an episode about Kenneth Branagh's attempt to turn Shakespeare into a musical.  Enjoy Love's Labour's Lost!

Musical Hell Review: Beauty and the Beast The Enchanted Christmas

No, for realsies this time.  The wait is finally over--Diva's diving horns-first into Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas!

Special thanks to T and M Comics for their generous Patreon contribution!  And Miriam Gronli for her continued work on my title cards (she was ill and a bit behind, but it'll be up there soon)!

New Musical Hell Epsiode!

Image result for net neutrality youtube

....Or at least, what a new episode could look like without net neutrality.

Look, I know my snark has skewed more and more political over the past year (it's a catharsis thing), and if that irritates you....well, I won't apologize, but I do understand why it might not be your cup of tea.  And if you're rolling your eyes about me getting up on my soapbox right now, stay with me for a second because THIS IS FUCKING IMPORTANT.  I don't care what your political views are, if the thought of ISPs being able to control what content you have access to isn't Orwellian dystopia levels of terrifying then you haven't been paying attention.  With so much communication, information transfer, commerce, and, well, life happening online, we cannot afford to have an Internet that is not a level playing field.

"Sure, Diva, but what can I do about it?"  Glad you asked, random reader of this article!  To begin with, make your voice heard by your representatives, the FCC, and anybody else you can think of.  ResistBot and Stance are two great apps I've discovered that make it easy to express yourself (even if you're like me and have crippling phone anxiety).  Go to gofccyourself.com to add your thoughts on the FCC ruling, or visit BattleForTheNet.com for information on protests and other activism activities.

Finally, sorry for the fakeout.  Patreons, you will get your early release tonight or tomorrow, depending on a last minute-addition that needs to be made.  Everybody else, see you Monday!
