On the 16th of June 1973 The Rocky Horror Show began previews in the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, London. They held their official, thunder ridden, opening night on the 19th of June 1973.
2013 marks the 40th Anniversary of this incredible production and I want to share some Frankie love here on Tumblr in a tribute to ‘the man who began it’ - Dammit. Well one of them. The one who stormed that stage forty years ago with such style and perfection that we’re sitting here forty years later, still talking about that tiny little production which by rights should have disappeared into the zeitgeist after the originally intended three week run.
So, Tumblr, can we get 4711 notes by 19th June?
If we do it.
I will post a rare - never before seen - photo from the original Theatre Upstairs production.
Well. How nice.
Scorpio are easily annoyed/ irritated by people who don’t have any common sense
I highly doubt all the people that liked/ reblogged this are vegan.
I don’t need to be a vegan or vegetarian to be against animal cruelty. I don’t beat my meat before I eat it.
Actually, you do need to be vegan to be against animal cruelty. You don’t love animals if you’re not vegan.
Wow, says who? You?
“You don’t love animals if you’re not vegan.” oh really?
Is this a joke?
Just fuck off.
excuse me .(before i say this i dont care what your lifestyle choise is just that you stop being an arse about it) just because you are a vegan does NOT mean you are better than anyone else! if (the unfertilised therefore containing no living animal) eggs are not taken away from the chickens they will rot and cause the chickens to get ill and will attract insects, if cows are not milked enough then their udders start to ache and they get ill. almost all slaughterhouses kill their animals as painlessly as they can and i realise not all do so and that is cruelty . but don’t go around thinking that people who eat meat or eat dairy products are going around kicking every animal they see. just because you eat meat doesn’t make you a cruel person and just because you are a vegan doesn’t make you some wonderful superhuman so shut the fuck up about how wonderful you all are because you don’t eat animal byproducts
also, as a surprising little note, some people just don’t have the financial resources to go vegan. and others literally cannot do so because their digestive system just can’t handle it.
So before you go and tell people they’re horrible for not being vegan, think about this for a second, then just don’t say anything, cause you don’t know their situation.
Wow. The above two statements are the truest things ever. I work at an animal shelter, and I work actively to prevent cruelty and improve the lives of every animal that comes in. I spent 8 hours a day taking care of them, making sure they feel loved and accepted.
And I eat meat. I quite enjoy meat. I do eat some vegan food and one of my favorite cafes is vegan. I have no trouble eating vegan sometimes. But I also enjoy meat. Just because I do doesn’t mean I support animal cruelty.
(I’m running errands for my pregnant wife. While walking to a nearby store, I see two teenagers harassing a child that is only four or five years old. I shoo them away from the boy, and he introduces himself.)
“So, where’s your mom at?”
“She’s in the store. Do you have kids?”
“Not yet. We’re expecting a baby girl soon, though.”
“Well, she’s going to turn out nice, like you! So, I’m going to marry her someday!”
(I laugh, and play along while I bring him to the service desk, and wait until his mom picks him up. Six years later, my daughter comes home from school and introduces us to a friend that defended her against a bully on the playground. I didn’t recognize him, but he certainly knew who I was!)
If I ever tell you I’m going to sleep and then you see me posting or liking things online for about an hour immediately after that, I promise I wasn’t lying to you, I’m just bad at going to sleep and it is usually a long process that begins with disengaging from any sort of immediate contact with people (chats, for example) and ends when everything on my screen is blurry and I’m hallucinating plot points I haven’t written yet
