Pointless but fun weekend topic: Who would you rather be? And no, no third options (like suicide, fleeing the country)

Despite being a Wicked fan, I'd go with being a Renthead because well, so many of them are just damn cool and awesome! Besides, I'd rather live like "There's no Day but Today" than "Defy Gravity" with fifteen year old girls (just a generalization, not a fact) who do not even know what is the meaning of the gravity they are defying >.>

I find this thread a reason to caus trouble.

Hands down a Renthead. Now, I HAPPEN to be a teenager. I love Wicked, BUT NOT BECAUSE I'M A TEENAGER!!! Sorry, I felt the need to stress that, just in case. Rent is my favorite musical because it's more personal, and the music is more raw. The message is more relevant in my opinion, and, as a New Yorker, I don't have to deal with as many teenybopper tourists when seeing RENT.

You may have to now with all the kids who've seen the movie.

this amuses me.

Whatever I love Wicked, I love the novel, I love the story, I love the music.

I like Rent. I love the ideals, I like the music, I like the story.

While I try to live by the ideals of Rent, I relate more to Wicked.

No, not a teenager.

Oh the angst, oh dear god the angst.

Now that I think about it...one could even argue that Wicked vs. Rent is similar to psychology vs. sociology. And I'm a sucker for picking apart the human mind.

I thought the term was Ozalot?

ETA: I suppose I should answer the question, so I posted at all. I'd prefer to not be known as either one.

Can I just be branded as a follower of Idina? Um...I'll have to say RENT just because well there's Idina and Mr. Pascal. re: Wicked Head or Renthead?

RENT forever! There is so much more emotional intensity than Wicked, however, they are both great shows. One just has to be better.,,,

I'm actually worried about the movie ss the show. Today, literally 10 seventh graders were running through the halls singing "What You Own". I was like, you have got to be kidding me. No way. My eeeaaadddrrrruuuummmmmssssss. To quote the movie :) - This cannot be happening.

I'm more of a WICKED fan than I am RENT. I love both shows and I didn't have the chance to see Idina's ass, so I'd like to be a RENTHEAD so I could have seen the obc 899633147852396 times and memorized the dot pattern on her ass!

At least in the show she was more..tan. I thought she looked very pale in the movie. But hey, I'm a girl, and notice the color before the crack.
