Lin-Manuel Miranda: Being a Lyrically and Linguistically driven Entity

August 3, 2010


Don’t feel bad if you haven’t heard of Lin-Manuel Miranda. Up until a couple days ago I would have assumed the name belonged to a senator or perhaps someone with a profound love of first names (perhaps a version of onomamania).

Lady Gag–err Christina Aguilera’s New Video
