This Compare ‘n’ Contrast (note capitalisation!), ladies and ladies, today comes courtesy of Daniel Radcliffe.
You may have heard of him. He’s Harry Potter, in the fictionalised moving picture of the true-life story of a wizard named Harry Potter.
He also once starred in Equus in London’s glittering West End. Interestingly, the stage door of the theatre in which Daniel Radcliffe was schtomping the boards is right opposite London’s could-be-anywhere-in-the-world-gay-bar Rupert Street (or ‘The Ruperts’ as it’s affectionately known in these quarts. Mostly ’cause someone in these quarts was courting a gennelman of foreign ilk who couldn’t get his head round the fact that the bar has the same name as the street on which it resides. Hence ‘The Ruperts’), so every now and then – whilst enjoying a gay pint or seven when every other mid-evening-to-late-bar in the Old Compton Street area has been exhausted – there’d be ever such a hullabaloo upon Daniel’s exiting (normally left, but sometimes right. Actually mostly straight ahead into a waiting car) the theatre. The first time was semi-exciting, but not really.
There is a point to this.
Which is… Daniel’s now getting his knob out on Broadway for the same reason he was doing it here, and those two pictures up there represent topless-ness on the London stage (left. Or ‘Before’, if you will) and topless-ness on the New York stage (Right. ‘After’). Hence a nice Compare ‘n Contrast opportunity.
Things we noticed include:
– Those bits between shoulders and neck. Seem bigger.
– Seems to have put on two inches all over his body.
– On the left he has a belt. On the right he doesn’t.
– And c) and d)
Thought(s) on a postcard/down in the dolly comments bit, if you’re inclined… Oh, and vote for which one you’d rather bum.
A story in which you're asked to compare 'n' contrast. And if you don't, those poor children won't get anything.,
