Namaste! [Mar. 14th, 2009|12:16 pm]

All righty, so a few things going on.

1. http://www.boycottpepsico.com/

Seriously? They want to boycott Pepsi because they send their employees to diversity training? LOL. I'm totally buying some pepsi next time I'm out. This American Family Association is a nightmare.

2. Be CAREFUL on your livejournals!!! People have been stealing others accounts with keystrokes, and old hotmail accounts. So watch out for hackers. If you see something like this on any of your communities, DO NOT CLICK ON IT!

Photobucket

I'd hate to see this happen to any of you and it's all ready hit some prominent communities. So careful, folks!

And, youtube of the day... Michael Emerson, talking about the awesomeness of theatre. :) Something for my theatre folks, my Lost folks, and those who are crossover fans like me. :)

What was the last play/musical you went to see? For me it was Spring Awakening.

1. That's lulzy. They should boycott Coke for their human rights abuses.
2. No-one would want anything of mine, lol.
3. Uhm, I really can't remember, BUT! I started volunteering at the Shubert (well, I will on Wednesday), and they give FREE TICKETS to volunteers. I'm psyched!

most companies dish out a lot of money to send their workers to diversity training. it isn't boycott worthy, but it is bullshit. (speaking of bullshit, i saw it on penn&teller's show bullshit) training your workers to be aware of diversity, cultural sensitivity. really? i don't think that being hypersensitive to differences in others is the right way to solve disputes between race and gender. it is as racist as affirmative action.

shouldn't we judge people by their actions and not by the color of their skin or country of origin or sexual orientation? pointing out how different we all are by sight just seems backwards to me. a real way to send rifts through groups of people who would otherwise get along just fine.

I definitely see your point, but regardless, people are still saying racist things at work, making racist jokes saying things are "so gay" etc, and making fun of people who are different then them. I think in these circumstances, diversity training is essential. If for no other reason then a company being able to protect themselves for firing some asshole biggot who decides to make their racist opinions known at work, which is a completely inappropriate place for that sort of thing. I've worked with scumbags like that and I'm glad we had diversity training so work could say "We tried everything we could. You're still an asshole. You're fired." Ya know?

That's awesome! :) I've never actually had the chance to see Wicked on stage yet. I intend to do that one of these days. Have you read the books?

Damn, but I hate Pepsi so much! Hopefully Coca-cola is equally awesome from a Human Rights standpoint?

The last play I saw was the Gamm Theatre's production of Awake and Sing!, the last musical was a community theatre production of Gypsy. Upcoming stuff: same community theatre's production of A Grand Night for Singing, and I'm performing in this awesome project called The Manton Avenue Project, a group that works with inner city kids, developing plays with them, that professional artists direct and perform!

How was Spring Awakening? I worked in summer stock with the girl who plays Wendla!

Apparently not. Another journaller is going to post about their human rights violations. I'm devastated. :(

That's awesome!!! That looks like an incredible organization.

And which Wendla? Which actress? I love Spring Awakening.

Sometimes I don't get these so-called "family" groups--a lot of what they do seems to be more their own agendas and not family-like. I remember when Focus on the Family went after Disney all because of the fact that males were inside the female character costumes

I don't even remember what the last musical I saw was, which is really insane for me. The last play I saw was As You Like It, which my college is currently doing. I'll be seeing Wicked in about a week and then I'll know what my last musical was. =)

That's awesome! I just called, but they're closed for the weekend, I'm copying and pasting the number here so I remember to call during the week. Tell them I gave them a shout out in my blog, and I intend to buy a lot more pepsi products. :)

For my own purposes:

Please call PepsiCo's customer relations line at 1-800-433-2652 today.

I always try to "anti-boycott" whatever the American Patriarchy Family Association is boycotting myself. Because if they think it's bad, then it's almost always something I'd want to encourage. :D

1. If only I liked Pepsi, I would support this idea. Ah well.

2. Thanks for the notice!

3. Music in the Air with Kristin Chenoweth and Douglas Sills. It was one of the happier moments of my year. (o:

Thanks for the heads-up

And I always preferred Coke to Pepsi, but I may have to make a temporary switch...

Re: Thanks for the heads-up

You're welcome. :)

And I KNOW, right?! With the exception of Dr Pepper and the occasional Mountain Dew I'm not a Pepsi fan at all, but they're being pretty cool right now, so I'm gonna have to just deal.
