🎶LA VIE TRUMBO🎶

To the tune of "La Vie Boheme" from Rent. Inspired by @jeremysomething.
  1. Dearly beloved, we gather here to say our goodbyes. Here she lies, with dreams so vivid. The late, great, daughter of Faith and David. On this night, as we celebrate the kid from that little town of Silverlake, we raise our glass (you bet your ass) to: La Vie Trumbo!
  2. To days of trolling List App, watching baseball, making ramen out of packets.
  3. The need to express, to communicate.
  4. To going out for some beers, ensuing cheers, "Slangevaaaaar!"
  5. To loving X-Men, no henchmen. To more than one dimension.
  6. To starving for attention, hating convention, hating the "yes-men."
  7. Not to mention of course, when you say "flannel" 'stead of "plaaaaid."
  8. To jogging each day by comedians and their dogs, to Pogs! To having a job. To Jay and Bob.
  9. To pain, to no cocaine, to hating grammar fads!
  10. To women being "us," for once. Instead of "ugh, that ho!"
  11. La Vie Trumbo!!
  12. ...
  13. To hand-crafted beers made in local breweries.
  14. To climbing, to high-heels, a satisfying sneeze.
  15. To leather, to dildos, to costumes, hats, and masks.
  16. To huevos rancheros and carrying a flask.
  17. Emotion, scent-free lotion, to causing a commotion,
  18. My NPR station,
  19. Mucho masturbation.
  20. To singing, not clinging, to ringing in the new.
  21. To Dumas, to Sonhdeim, to anything taboo.
  22. Bernstein, Nilsson, Crosby, Stills, and Nash - Rufus Wainwright! JRB! TO THE STAGE!!
  23. To Gaiman! To Shaiman. To sexy gay men!
  24. Tooooo: Ygritte wanting only to stay in that cave: "you know nothing, Jon Snow!"
  25. La Vie Trumbo!
  26. ...
  27. Bisexuals, Trisexuals, single-malt scotch, grabbing your crotch, bagels with lox, cocks, Pee-Wee Herman!
  28. German beer, being queer, Harry Shearer, Bob Rauschenberg, Mozart, Murakami, "Carmina Burana!"
  29. To energy, to Brandon Lee, to fighting off lethargy. Radiohead. The Beatles. AMC.
  30. To no shame never playing the blame game.
  31. TO FUCKING BOURBON!
  32. Astronomy, I hate astrology! TO S&M!!!
  33. La Vie Bohème!!!!
  34. In honor of the death of Bohemia, an impromptu salon will commence immediately following dinner. @olive, clad only in sunglasses, will perform her famous "sex-toy tutorial" dance to the sounds of margaritas being shaken.
  35. And @aubreyljohnson will instruct us on how to properly commence the orgy preceding the fiery plane crash that will kill us all.
  36. @JeremyPivot, fresh from his spectacular TED talk at Madison Square Garden will illustrate the subtle nuances of advanced quantum physics as they apply to the delicate art of mandala: which he has never studied.
  37. And @nathanveshecco will attempt to write a bittersweet, evocative song. (Insert guitar solo) That... Doesn't remind us of "Hotline Bling."
  38. @magic will model the latest fashions from her online purchases while accompanying herself on acoustic guitar.
  39. And @element75 will recount her exploits as an iconoclastic performance artist, including the tale of successfully hacking all of the neon billboards in Times Square to self-destruct as it broadcasts the words:
  40. "Actual reality. Act up. Fight AIDS."
  41. ...
  42. TO BOOZE!
  43. No way to make a living, masochism, alcoholism, blackout nights, empty wallets, liver damage, inappropriate sex!
  44. TO LA!
  45. Too many restaurants, "we'll get lunch," lonely nights, stupid fights, juicing, yoga butts, traffic, Hollywood, and me!
  46. MUSIC!
  47. Food of love, emotion, tearful breakdowns, deep connection, rhythm, power, feeling, harmony, and release of frustration!
  48. CREATIVITY!
  49. Revolution, fearful, without inspiration, channeling rages, risk and failure, making noise and making pleas!
  50. To getting up, to move, find things to do,
  51. To me, to ME! To you, and you, and you, you, and YOU.
  52. To people living with living with living with not dying years ago.
  53. Let thee among us without sin be the first to cast stones!
  54. La Vie Trumbo!
  55. To anyone in the closet. Is anyone in the closet? Anyone alive with a sex drive? Tear down the door, hit the floor.
  56. The opposite of love isn't hate, it's apathy.
  57. ...
  58. VIVA LA VIE TRUMBO!
