I've seen the future and it will be, I've seen the future and it works
I tossed off a comment about going to the opera on Sunday, making it sound like I go to the opera. Which I really don't. But I did. I'll just come out and say it. Die Fledermaus is a hoot, yo. After doing a little reading, I guess we have Strauss to thank for the music, but not the comedy so much. Otherwise I was ready to dub him the 19th century's answer to Mel Brooks. I guess this wasn't a typical night at the opera, but it was an exceedingly welcoming toe in the water for me. Hence the lyric in the post title which just happens to come from Prince's Batman, y'all. See how that all came together so nicely?
