One of my facebook friends just shared one of the original PTKP images from a Broadway-themed facebook fan page… so weird to see my creation on my own news feed!
I just thought I’d write something here about the status of PTKP. We have been terrible at keeping up this blog due to school and work and other life commitments. We appreciate all of our followers and everyone who has been so supportive since we started this. Anyone who wants to can submit creations (the past few months have been filled with theatre news! Tony nominations are just around the corner!) but I doubt we will be updating this very much at all from this point forward. We will keep the page up for archival purposes but any new posts will be rare. We made this blog when we were freshmen in college and now we’re approaching the end of our junior year and we don’t have as much time to mess around on the internet anymore.
Again, thanks so much for all the follows, asks, likes, reblogs, and positive comments. It’s been a really fun few years and we hope you all continue to enjoy theatre (with just the right amount of pretentiousness :P)
For those of us who can’t watch it on TV (aka brianne)
1. I searched “pretentious theatre kid poodle” on twitter (just to see if anyone on there talked about us) and saw that Mara Wilson (from Matilda, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Miracle on 34th Street) tweeted about the meme last summer:
So that’s cool! We will of course strive to be even more pretentious in her honor ;)
2. We currently have 1,999 followers! This is pretty insane for a meme started by two college kids who one day started making fun of how pretentious we tended to be when talking about musical theatre. Seriously, you guys are awesome for supporting this blog.
We definitely want to do something to celebrate when we hit 2,000 followers. Brianne and I discussed a giveaway but we’re both pretty strapped for cash so for now that idea is out. Does anyone have any ideas on something cool we could do for you guys? One idea could be something like a random promo of five people (you’d have an hour to like/reblog a post and we’d randomly select five or so people to promote to our followers). That’s just a starting point though, so if you have any ideas (preferably theatre related but if not that’s fine as well), please send them to us! We want to show our appreciation for all soon-to-be 2,000 of you!

For the show I am currently in, I (Asia) get to throw a drink in someone’s face and I am extremely excited.
Have you ever gotten to do any cool stage combat or “stunts”?
What’s your favorite holiday musical? I (Asia) just saw A Christmas Story on Friday and was totally blown away.

However we’ve stated so so so many times that this is a satirical blog. We’re here to poke fun at the pretentious quirks we thespians occasionally exhibit! It’s a blog made for theatre kids to be able to laugh at themselves! We get so many messages of people taking offense to the things we post because they think we’re perpetuating bad stereotypes or we’re glorifying rude/pretentious behavior.
We know not all theatre kids do these things.
We know some of the things we say are rude (ie- the making demands of tech and not knowing any of their names post).
From here on out, any messages sent to us regarding people clearly not understanding that this blog is satirical will be deleted.
Thank you so much for your continued support and don’t forget to submit!
Brianne and Asia.
if anyone sees or has a gif of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) smashing his alarm clock from The Amazing Spider-Man (the movie that just came out a few weeks ago), please send us a link or submit it to us. It’s very important to your pretentious mods’ happiness. Thank you!
PS: It is imperative that we have this gif. -Brianne
Hey guys, it’s Brianne :)
So thank you all for your opinions and all that regarding the tattoo post, we really do appreciate them, however, like usual we are not going to be posting any more of your asks on the subject, as we don’t want to flood our followers’ dashboards. Feel free to keep sending them, we just won’t post them.
Your Favorite Jewish Mod,
