I'd just like to point out that our three authors are going to graduate school.

Ms. Z - NYU
Mr. G - University of Chicago
Ms. S - Sarah Lawrence College

Basically, we are brainier than you, and should probably update this more with random facts.

Today I'd just like to share this:

In New York City during the 1840s Lydia Thompson brought her production of Ixion, the first burlesque, to PT Barnums theater. It grossed 40,000 dollars in ticket sales. That's more than Wicked or the Lion King has done in the modern era.

In other words, burlesque kicks Disney's butt.
