Subversion - The American Way
The Soundtrack of my Life
...

"Ten dolla' Founding Father".... Hamilton -- haven't seen it, now anticipating I will see the movie Disney announced this past week. Thankfully, recorded from a Broadway staging, not recreated for the screen. I have always been on the crest of the wave advocating for inclusion. Even though I have not been able to see the theatrical production of Hamilton, I admire Lin-Manuel Miranda in the way he lifts up others, and sticks to his life-long alliances and values even in his growing success. I see that in his creating this musical, and in his standing up for the people of Puerto Rico during governmental crises.

And this sets up "Weird Al" Yankovich Hamilton Polka. As I have made clear in this musical set, I love me some parody. Here is a master, like the forever Oscar-contender that is annually at work and annually recognized, but never takes the stage. So no surprise, Weird Al had to give a long-form love letter to the musical Hamilton. I didn't really know he'd done it but a friend goes and sees his performances regularly, so this is why I had to see what the corkscrew-curl accordian-player has played with lately.
