Just For Fun: Take Me or Leave Me Karaoke Video from RENT

So I decided to do a video response on YouTube today, something I’ve never done. It’s karaoke: “Take Me or Leave Me” from Jonathan Larson’s musical RENT.

RENT was my favorite musical for many years. I saw it on Broadway three times when I was in college, going so far as to camp out for tickets overnight. I’ve also seen the travel company do it twice. In my younger days, I always thought it would be fun to play Maureen, despite my heterosexuality and the fact that I’m far more Joanne than I am Maureen. In any case, this gave me an opportunity to sing Maureen’s part “with” another person singing as Joanne.

Please be kind. My facial expressions are less than flattering sometimes, and I flubbed the end a little. But I think the rest is pretty solid. Hope you enjoy!

Here’s a link to the original video for anyone who wants to give it a try.

That’s me: Christina Gleason. I’m a professional copywriter, editor, and blogger. My company is called Phenomenal Content. (Hire me!) I’m a relatively high-functioning Aspie who also lives with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. I am not ashamed to admit that I am in the care of a psychiatrist, who assures me that people in therapy are often better adjusted than “normal” people who are not, because at least we know what our issues are and are working on them. I’m a geek for grammar, fantasy, and select types of gaming, including World of Warcraft and Plants vs Zombies 2. I hate vegetables. I have an intense phone phobia, so I’ll happily conduct business over email or IM instead. I have started writing no fewer than five novels, and I hope to finish one of them...eventually.
