This is just a pretty damn spectacular story.

We begin with our hero, Austyn Farrell, locked down and bored a year ago.

So he made a music video out on his street and posted it on TikTok.

And then he made another - and that one kinda went viral.

Now he had an audience - online at least.

So he made another video.

And a few neighbors came out to watch.

So he made a few more videos, and more neighbors came out to watch.

Austyn now had an audience up and down the street.

They might all be confined to home. Theaters might all be closed. But they had him and his one-man musicals.

But then he recruited some people to join the cast.

And they made this...

And it is spectacular...

I present to you, Austyn Farrell, The Greatest Showman.

How great was that?!

You can watch the full version here:…

You can also follow Austyn here on Twitter: @austynfarrell92

Give the man props. He is a treasure.

p.s. credit to @scootertooter7 for pointing me toward the story.

They posted the final video and I just went back and found the full backstory.

Republican shitbird uses man’s tragic death as political prop to make stupid comment about unrelated things.
This asshat’s resumé is like a caricature of a privileged little white girl from money.

Heritage Foundation, House Republicans, Martha McSally, Liz Cheney, Nancy Mace.

How much you wanna bet her bio is some version of “Born to a rich Virginia daddy who used his connections...”
Don’t get me wrong. Natalie Johnson has had her own share of traumas.

There was the time Black students exercising their right to free speech made it hard for her to hear Ben Shapiro...…

Take the time to watch the videos in this thread in order.

It’ll be worth it.

A state where an idiot governor actively undermined public health is now opening vaccinations to all adults.

Meanwhile, people in NJ - the most densely populated state in the country *with the highest per capita death rate in the US* - still can’t get appts.
And the irony is that Texas can open vaccine appts to everyone because the state’s criminal corrupt and moronic leadership has all but ensured a large percent of the pop won’t sign up.
One important note: as several Texans have pointed out, opening appointments to everyone ain’t the same as having supply to satisfy everyone.

Shut the fuck up and sit the fuck down, you bigoted, misogynist piece of shit.

There is an endless amount of toxic crap in the world - and on here - so, maybe this will be a welcome diversion for a few minutes.

It’s about music or it’s about all of us or maybe it’s about me. I don’t know.

A couple months ago, I found myself without my son on a Friday night for the first time in the past year.

For whatever reason, that landed on me with a surprising weight.

We’ve been isolated a long time. Eventually, the bill for that loss comes due.

I felt a heavy, settling loneliness that went beyond the transient sadness of just missing having plans on one particular night.

In theory, I’m not isolated. I have ample connectivity to a larger group of humans than I can even manage.

I don’t even feel like going into it but Shaun King is trending for doing what Shaun King does.

He is a fucking parasite. The way he exploits hurting people is just the lowest of the low. He is trash.
Seriously, you have to be a special kind of piece of shit to do what Shaun King does.

Vultures prey on the dead. Shaun King spots the dead and then preys on the living who gather to mourn.

That grifting asshole should have been cancelled 50 times over by now.
This asshole had the audacity to swoop in and write a mind-numbingly patronizing and condescending piece about Samaria Rice.

Shaun, you clownyass motherfucker, when Samaria Rice - mother of Tamir Rice - a mother who lost her child - speaks, keep your dumb mouth shut.
