A conversation that just occurred:
((By the way, I figured all of you might be good to ask, does anyone do the boot-trading thing? I’ve finally got my website sorted out again after losing a TON of things to the megauploadpocalypse last year and losing even more when my harddrive crashed. :(
Basically I’m up for trading anything but I’m particularly looking for Mis videos…and of course replacement links for stuff I lost.
Okay back to replies now.))
LOOK. MY TRADING SITE.
Because, like I said above, I finally got it sorted out and I’m desperate for more Les Mis videos. kdjbvksjdfv.
GIVE ME SOMETHING WITH JOJ VALJEAN PLEASE GOD OH PLEASE.
I mean…I’m sorry it’s 1am and I’m having a lot of feelings. D:
EXCUSE ME BUT
Les Miserables (the stage production) is an OPERA, not a MUSICAL.
Musical: theatrical or film piece wherein the story is interspersed with song-and-dance segments.
Opera: an extended dramatic production in which all dialogue is sung to musical accompaniment.
You’re very right, it really isn’t a “musical” in the strictest sense….
But if we’re going to get specific, it’s actually an operetta.
“A theatrical production that has many of the musical elements of opera but is lighter and more popular in subject and style and contains spoken dialogue.”
There are a couple of lines that do not have any orchestration or musical notation to accompany them. (ie, “Marius, rest.”)
SORRY I’M SO ANNOYING OMG.
So, there is a Les Mis anime….and this is a thing that actually happens in it.
A couple of the Amis ask Enjolras if his girlfriend is worried about him doing all this dangerous revolution stuff…and this is his actual response.
Victor Hugo: Shipping our Ships since 1862
“[Enjolras] chastely dropped his eyes before everything which was not the Republic.”
“[Enjolras] was the marble lover of liberty.”
“‘I admire Enjolras,’ said Bossuet. ‘His impassive temerity astounds me. He lives alone, which renders him a little sad, perhaps; Enjolras complains of his greatness, which binds him to widowhood. The rest of us have mistresses, more or less, who make us crazy, that is to say, brave. When a man is as much in love as a tiger, the least that he can do is to fight like a lion. That is one way of taking our revenge for the capers that mesdames our grisettes play on us. Roland gets himself killed for Angelique; all our heroism comes from our women. A man without a woman is a pistol without a trigger; it is the woman that sets the man off. Well, Enjolras has no woman. He is not in love, and yet he manages to be intrepid. It is a thing unheard of that a man should be as cold as ice and as bold as fire.’
THIS POST GOT BETTER.

wait, do I just have a thing for absurdly patriotic blonde men? O_o
RE: Livestream of Les Mis
KAY SO THREE PEOPLE RESPONDED. WOOT. XD
How about 7pm on Sunday for a tentative date/time??
I might be able to do Friday, if you want it sooner?
BASICALLY WHENEVER YOU WANT GUYS!
And then we can marvel at the beauty of these people:
If I were to livestream the 25th anniversary concert of Les Miserables sometime before Christmas (for the benefit of anyone who isn’t familiar with the show or who is familiar with it but hasn’t seen the beauty of the 25th or just anyone who wants a Les Mis fix before seeing the film) who would be interested? Also, what date/time would be best for you???
CLARK GREGG (AGENT PHIL COULSON) IS GOING TO BE CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS WITH JOEL GREY (THE ORIGINAL MC OF CABARET)
IT JUST DAWNED ON HANNAH, TORI, AND MYSELF THAT:
JOEL GRAY’S DAUGHTER IS JENNIFER GREY
AND JENNIFER GREY IS MARRIED TO CLARK GREGG
THIS IS US:
AND NOW TORI FOUND A PHOTO OF THEM ALL TOGETHER AND WE’RE PRACTICALLY CREYING
I LITERALLY CANNOT EVEN RIGHT NOW.
THIS MEANS JOEL GREY SHOULD GET TO BE IN A MARVEL MOVIE OR SOMETHING ,RIGHT?
RAGTIME (Opening) from Ragtime
Class, religion, race, immigrants, Harry Houdini, 20th Century, Crime of the Century, NYC, jazz music, Henry Ford, baseball, Model-T’s, flip books, J.P. Morgan, fireworks, secrets, murder, vengeance, Audra McDonald, Marin Mazzie and a (very young) Lea Michele (Tetah’s daughter) all on one soundtrack? In one show?
Harry Houdini. HOUDINI. HOUDINIIIIIII. HOUDINIIIIIIIIIII.
Guess what’s one of Tori’s favorite musicals ever?
Les Mis is going to epic.
Welp. This movie is probably actually going to kill me.
I will not survive the premiere.
