    The cast album for Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop musical based on the life of Alexander Hamilton just came out (available on iTunes, spotify, etc.). It's an interesting show-- and a bunch of famous people, from the Obamas to Dick Cheney have attended it. Daryl Morey is a apparently a fan, too.

    You can listen to it on NPR's website here:

    When Miranda wrote the first song of the play in 2009, he performed it at the White House:

    Just thought those of us who like to talk politics may take an interest in this.

    ^^^ Can't even look at tickets under $250. We got tickets in July for January 2016. Paid $540 for a pair.

    A pricing bubble for Hamilton tickets would be so very fitting. :cool: I bet Alexander himself would laugh his ass off at this.
