Some people have been asking me WTF is this about. They haven’t encountered the internet meme of “fuck yeah” before. Let’s just say it’s a thing people do when they love something and want to share it with the world. There are a lot of us doing this around a ton of subjects. So many, in fact, that someone created a special search engine to see if a Fuck Yeah page exists for any given topic.
Had I seen that search engine before embarking on this project, I probably wouldn’t have bothered, because someone was already doing Fuck Yeah Sondheim, and had been for quite a while, and did a damn fine job at it. But right around the time I started this blog, she wound down that one, so it all worked out. Still, if you like what I’m doing, you should also check out Fuck Yeah Sondheim.
And speaking of me, you might wonder who I am. Name’s David Levy. You can find me on Twitter as @itsdlevy. Truth be told, you can find me most anywhere on the web as itsdlevy. I’ve been involved in spreading the gospel of Stephen Sondheim on the internet since, oh, at least 1995, which was probably before most of the people following this Tumblr even knew there was an internet. I have a personal Tumblr at itsdlevy.tumblr.com that you’ll probably like if you like this one. I also maintain Fuck Yeah Dorothy Fields and Sondheim LOLCats.
I live in Brooklyn with my cat, Rhoda Morgenstern. I work in Manhattan as the marketing director for a Jewish non-profit organization. I spend too much time at the theater and at brunch and especially at 54 Below.
