    How much would the Threepenny Opera cost now?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Didn't that take place in Germany? I know it was written by Bertold Brecht.

    I don't think it took him long, but the music took a Weill.

    BTW, for the first production Brecht didn't have enough money to pay a lead actress, so Weill said Kurtly, "Don't worry. I've got a Lotte Lenya."

    Sometimes I am amazed to compare first and last (?) posts on a subject. To ask about metric/feet conversion and progress to dreigroschen puns on Brecht/Weill is a masterpiece in the digressive genre.
