Today's Musing: Gender-Bending Musical Comedy

I’m several days late in posting this, but it’s completely worth it anyway.  It matters not that the “Late Night Wars 2″ is over…if you still haven’t read my top 10 reasons to join Team Craig and made the change (are you really watching Jimmy Fallon?!), then you’re missing out on some truly subversive [Continue]
