Rules for Anti-Valentine's Day

To prepare for the upcoming Valentine's Day activities, I have declared the Second Annual Anti-Valentine's Day! Participants need not RSVP, but if you wish to show your solidarity, commenting will not go unappreciated.

1. Stay sober--if you're drunk, you won't be able to fully participate in the spirit of Anti-Valentines, which is a celebration of singleness, and non-romance. Get drunk and you will inevitably end up crying because you don't have a boyfriend.

2. Buy lots of chocolate. Take advantage of the holiday by buying discounted candy on the very day we are being anti about. Now you have a stash of candy.

3. Do NOT rent or watch any movie containing romance of ANY kind. Romance is counter intuitive to the Anti-Valentine celebration.

I interrupt this post to bring you the list of Musicals Anna MUST SEE!

Hello, Dolly! heads the list, as the last of the great studio muscals before the likes of Flashdance and Footloose did away with the traditional musical.

Shall We Dance, because I happen to think it's the best of the Astaire/Rodgers musicals.

Summer Stock, because that's my favorite Gene Kelly Musical, if we're excluding Singing In The Rain, which is just the quintessential musical of all time.

42nd Street, because it is a perfect example of 1930's musicals, and also of early depression culture.

Anchors Aweigh, because it's the best of the Pasternak unit MGM musicals.

On the Town, because it's an amazing ensemble musical.

Cabaret because of Joel Grey and Liza Minellli.

Yankee Doodle Dandy, because of James Cagney's powerhouse performance as George M. Cohan.

Guys and Dolls, because of the color and the costumes and Frank Sinatra holding his own in a musical without Gene Kelly.

Thank you, and have a good night!
