with my freeze ray I will…stop!…the world

First day of intersession course on musical lyrics was very exciting. We watched and discussed DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG. Tomorrow: TOPSY-TURVY, and Gilbert. I have told the students that the thesis of this class is that lyrics can and should be as good as any other kind of writing, and that we are going to hold them to the same standards we would a short story or a poem. To make this statement makes me very happy.
