Die Vampire Die!

That excellent title comes from a cast recording from the musical [title of show] featuring Susan Blackwell, Hunter Bell, Heidi Blickenstaff, and Jeff Bowen. One of my delightful honors composition students sent it to me after we were talking in class about the Inner Critic. You know, that horrid voice in your head, who speaks in various nasty tones about how your writing is wretched drivel that should never see the light of day.

It seriously made my day after a long, long day. Campy, irreverent, and true as hell.

Here it is for your listening pleasure (warning: explicit lyrics. NSFW).

  1. Die Vampire, Die! ? I wish I’d written it. Thanks for sharing. And kudos to a student who understood a beautiful way to illustrate the issue.
