Might As Well Watch This Video of Voldemort Doing Metalcore Cabaret, Hey

I don't fucking know just do it.

Okay. Look. I like to talk, I like to ramble on. It's a known fact and it's why I became—what my generation is increasing more loosely calling—"a writer". But there's no time for that today. No time for my nonsense nor my insights. There's only time to write the minimum amount of words required to actually call this a "written" piece of media that somehow excuses the fact that we didn't just share the fucking video on Facebook and get it over with.

So here goes: someone just sent me this. It is... as far as I can tell... a video of an alternative dance troupe doing some kind of metal core vogueing routine with the lead dancer dressed (impressively well) as Voldemort, interspersed with Harry Potter dialogue, to uproarious applause. I don't... I'm not sure. I almost couldn't watch the whole thing. But then the sender said "if you're going to watch it at all you've got to watch the whole thing," so I did. As weird and unlikely as this sounds, she was right.

Here it is. I don't know what else to say. God help us all.
