I saw this guy on Late Night with Conan O'Brien - he was on there just for a novelty, but beyond that he had a great message that reminded me a bit of The Music Tapes adult-is-a-lie messages of eternal youthful thinking.

Unfortunately this society has deified the gender boundaries they've established, especially the rules of what boys should and should not enjoy doing. This is why little girls are praised for interest in "boyish" activities, but boys who do the opposite are seldom tolerated. So such a character, by his fairy-like qualities and elfin appearance, represents a literal blaspheme against their "god". No wonder few stage productions have dared to cast a male for this character, despite the many talented actors, songwriters, and directors available! (Only a few like Disney and more recently PJ Hogan have had the guts to do so.) Yet it is for these very reasons that this character suits me perfectly. Besides, the God of Love that Jesus spoke of is the only one I serve. Too bad modern religion seems to have missed that.

on topic of what boys should and shouldn't do.. just go and see sigur rós' *viðrar vel til loftárása* (http://www.sigur-ros.co.uk/media/dldvideo.html - the second video). It's in icelandic but the images are quite explicit. (sorry, it has nothing to do with the music tapes, though). If I had to add something, tell people around you: close your eyes or else you won,t see anything.
