Maris Kreizman, maven of the tumblr Slaughterhouse 90210, told us about the time she was a middle-aged woman trapped in a tween body. “I was gap kids on the outside, panic attacks and 34Cs on the inside.” Kreizman took us through her 12-year-old self’s critical love affair with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, since “clearly this was all shit [she] could relate to,” with that ideal mix of self-deprecation and nostalgia. “Thank you, Andrew Lloyd Webber, you soulful genius,” Kreizman closed.
