Located on a small expansion shelf about midway between the Third and Fourth Circles, Musical Hell is presided over by Diva, a minor demon charged with passing judgement on the worst musicals ever committed to film. (She still hasn't figured out if this is their punishment or hers.) Take a seat on the bench and have your earplugs ready, because court is now in session.

New videos posted on the first Monday of the month. Other viewpoints, news, and general ramblings posted when they crop up.

Here's a movie about a small-town woman trying to make it in the big city.  No, not that one.  Or that one.  Or...look, it's Burlesque, all right?

MHTV: The Secret of Mulan (1,000 YouTube Subscriber Celebration!)

To celebrate reaching 1,000 subscribers on YouTube, I did a thing.  Here it is: a riff of The Secret of Mulan!  It's the story of China's most famous cross-dresser, told by insects.

(To those of you who voted for Hunchback, it was a close call, so I'll keep that one in mind for later!)

Know the Score: Singin' in the Rain (Musicals 101)

We're trying something a little different with Know the Score this month--a segment called "Musicals 101" where we take a look at some of the landmark works of the genre.  And you don't get much more "landmark" than one of the most beloved movie musicals of all time, Singin' in the Rain.

1,000 Subscriber Celebration is Coming--and YOU Choose the Topic!

Ladies and gentlemen, Musical Hell is about to reach 1,000 YouTube subscribers!  To celebrate and say thank you for indulging my insanity, I will be doing another MHTV mockbuster  riff--and YOU get to pick the subject!  Yes, YOU!  Should it be:

The Secret of the Hunchback--Victor Hugo's classic tale of tragedy and social injustice, with absolutely none of the above--and the craziest ending I have ever seen:

The Amazing Feats of Hercules--Mythology's favorite jerk jock goes and fights a bunch of monsters with a talking ferret at his side:

The Secret of Mulan--The secret is that she was a caterpillar, apparently:

Snow White and the Magic Mirror--And you thought "Happily Ever After" was bad:

So much weird to choose from, I can't decide!  So you do it--tell me which one is your favorite and the most popular will be riffed in October!
