How do you document real life?


Hi, I'm Lauren!
(or rdm, if you prefer the shorter name with the longer story)

I'm 23, a university student and a self-confessed music nerd.

Here you'll find Glee, Disney, Sherlock, fic, musicals, pretty people, pretty things and my ramblings.
Oh and I have a tendency to overshare. Don't say I didn't warn you.

I don’t know how many people familiar with Rent are aware of this, but I think it’s a pretty intriguing piece of its history, so I thought I’d share. Before the movie adaptation was taken on by director Chris Columbus, an earlier draft was written by the same screenwriter (Stephen Chbosky, author of The Perks of Being a Wallflower) for Spike Lee, who was vying to direct the movie at the time (cue Light My Candle: “I hear Spike Lee’s shooting down the street”).
To say that this first draft of the screenplay was different from both the final movie version and the stage version would be an understatement. This adaptation is such a dramatic change from the Rent that people are familiar with that it probably would have been controversial, but for me it was a fascinating read, and I think it’s worth considering with an open mind. While I appreciate the movie we have, I find myself wishing it had taken more creative inspiration from this version.
You can read and download it here. There’s also a review here, in which the reviewer describes it as “the best dramatic screenplay I’ve read in a long time” and actually prefers it to the stage version. Though I can’t say I’d go that far, at least this might give you some idea of how different this version is from the others.
Edit: Fixed the link settings for the screenplay. It should now be accessible without an account or request.

Never thought I’d be getting pedantic about a Rent GIF set of all things, but here we are!

The line is “mutual masturbation” which feels kind of important here. 

OH GOD I DIDN’T SEE THAT.

How do you even get ‘mucho’?

No, wait, it is definitely supposed to be mucho. I just listened to both recordings to verify. It’s a joke about how lonely Mark is. 

I’m totally seeing it as both now that I’m looking it up - WHERE MY RENT NERDS AT, WHATS THE STORY HERE?

Settled.

16 year old me would have never thought, “If I have a question about RENT lyrics in the future, I can just ask Anthony Rapp on the internet and he’ll answer within the hour.”

technology is magical.
