I can’t be the only one..

OK. I admit it. I haven’t paid much attention to it. But now, I just can’t sit idle. Can someone please tell me what the fuck is up with John Travolta in drag? Are they seriously remaking Hairspray? Is it the movie or the musical? It seems to me like a really bad screwed up case of inbreeding. Crazy, kitschy John Waters movie inspires a mainstream broadway musical which inspires a mainstream remake of the crazy, kitschy John Waters movie? So much so that a big STRAIGHT star is dressing up in drag with funny Mike Meyers make-up to play the role that was made famous by a transvestite because, well, Divine was a transvestite! My brain is too small for this shit!!!!!! Am I alone?
