Thank you, Taja. You’re the sweetest, and I love you dearly. I hope this goes well. I’ll probably have a stroke before he texts me back.

And yeah, Cree, that is totalllllly how I’m feeling. I’m hoping it turns out alright, but there is definitely a voice in the back of my head screaming, “WHYYYYYYYYYY”

martha-amaze-balls-rodgers asked: dream cast of Dracula (das Musical)

I was cheating a little bit here. It’s a mix of people who played the roles and people who never did and I’m aware that Vera is Russian but when I see her as Sarah I always think she looks (and sounds) like somebody who should play Lucy. Also I’m not 100% sure if Drew is the best Dracula out there but I liked him A LOT and in all honesty I was never as interested in any of Wildhorn’s musicals to watch all (or most) of the casts. But yeah, here you go ;) 

Count Dracula: Drew Sarich

Mina: Femke Soetenga

Jonathan: Jesper Tydén

Lucy: Vera Sveshnikova

Van Helsing: Ethan Freeman

Renfield: Veit Schäfermeier

Arthur: Lucius Wolter

Seward: Rory Six

Quincey: Robert D. Marx

New life goal: write musical about Josef Strauss and get Jesper Tydén to play the main role

anonymous asked:

How good is the TYD? I want to play it, but I don't have a Game Cube, pretty sure it's not on the Wii U eShop, And there's no remake. And it's the only Paper Mario game I haven't played yet.

Well, TYD is one of my all-time favorite RPGs and one of my favorite games in general, its similar to the first Paper Mario but just… better, in my opinion. Just excellent humor and an engaging story and great gameplay and excellent music.

but that’s just me, if you can’t play it I wouldn’t say you’re missing out horribly. Just that if the opportunity arises where you can play it, definitely take it

Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth Feuding: Monarch Disgusted With Middletons Making Money Off Marriage to Prince William


Kate Middleton
became Royalty when she married Prince Charles, but as far as Queen Elizabeth is concerned – the Duchess of Cambridge’s family are still measly commoners. It’s no secret that there is no love lost between the Queen of England and Kate’s parents Michael and Carole, and her siblings Pippa and James. Kate’s family has pushed the Queen’s buttons one too many times by trying to ride on the Royal Family’s coattails, and using Kate’s connections to boost their own careers. Kate’s brother James Middelton’s recent interview with TYD Magazine was the final straw for Queen Elizabeth – she is done with the Middleton Family, and Kate can kiss any hopes of spending time with her family and her in-laws at the same time good-bye, it looks like separate holidays and birthdays from now on.

The February 23rd issue of Life & Style Magazine reveals that while Kate Middleton was on vacation in Mustique with Prince Williams, and her parents and siblings – all hell broke loose at the Palace when Queen Elizabeth seenJames Middleton’s latest interview in TYD Magazine in which he dished on what it is like to “have a princess as a sister.” And, to top it off the interview was accompanied with an embarrassing video of James giving instructions on how to properly tie a bow-tie.

According to Life & Style Magazine’s inside source, “Queen Elizabeth is frustrated with how the Middletons seem to moan about the royals all the time. She thinks it is tacky. The Queen fells let down and angry. She’s told Kate to warn her family not to talk about the Royals or Kate in any other interviews – ever again.” James’s latest interview is just the tip of the iceberg, the Queen’s official ban on them giving interviews has been a long time coming. Kate’s family has cashed in on every opportunity they can to make money off from their daughter’s marriage to Prince William.

Pippa Middleton used her sister’s name to help her sell books and land journalism jobs, she has even been reportedly in talks the “Today” show. James Middleton created a ridiculous company that sells marshmallows with pictures on them from social media, and has never turned down an interview. And, even Kate’s parents got in on the action by selling Royal Family themed supplies at their party supply business.

Do you blame Kate Middleton’s family for trying to get in on the action? Is Queen Elizabeth being overdramatic? Or does she have every right to be upset with Kate’s parents and brother and sister? Does this mean that the Middleton’s will be completely banned from all family events?

Vandag se nuusneus snoep eerder 24/7 aanlyn

Adri Thiart, Bphil Joernalistiekstudent loer graag op verskillende toestelle om op hoogte van nuussake te bly.


Jongmense is aldag op hul selfone, tablette of skootrekenaars doenig.

Dosente kla gereeld in lesings oor hierdie feit en probeer klaskamers “toestelvry” maak.

Dit is nie moeilik om te besef dat nuusverbruik onder jongmense radikaal sedert hul ouers se tyd (ek verwys nou hier na my ma wat net so oor die drumpel van 50-jaar is en diegene ouer as sy) verander het nie. Tegnologie het veroorsaak dat verskillende nuusplatforms met interaktiewe verbruikers tot stand kon kom.

My vraag is egter hoe kan daar van jongmense verwag word om in hierdie dinamiese tydperk, waar hul gebombardeer word met sosiale platforms, interaktiewe netwerke en toeps, nie heeltyd nuuskierig te wees nie?

Informasie, nuus en die uitruil van idees het ’n 24-uur lewenswyse geword en die blitsvinnige pas waarteen dinge plaasvind neem nie tydsones in ag nie.

Arlene Prinsloo, aanlyn-uitlegkunstenaar by Netwerk24 en dosent in koerantproduksie by die Universiteit van Stellenbosch (US) Departement Joernalistiek, vertel Mario Garcia, Amerikaanse koerant- en tydskrifontwerper, het selfs nou vir hom ’n Apple Watch aangeskaf en help nou om ’n program te ontwikkel om nuus op hierdie klein toestelletjie in die nabye toekoms moontlik te maak.

Ek het met paar jongmense oor hulle nuusgewoontes gesels. Deur middel van ’n klankopname het ek met Niki Nel, Louis du Preez en Nicola Bruns oor hul nuusverbruik gesels. Die volgende vrae is breedvoerig bespreek (Sien Nuusverbruik_Klankgreep vir die opname) : 

Wat is jou hoofsaaklike nuusbron?

Hoe lees jy die nuus? Toepassings?

Het jy Twitter? Facebook?

Wanneer laas het jy ’n koerant gekoop?

Is jy geregistreer om enige aanlyn koerantsubskripsie te ontvang?

Wat is die prys van Die Burger/Cape Times (as harde kopie)?

Solank jy ’n idee het wat in die wêreld aangaan, gee ek nie om hoe jy jou nuus verbruik nie. Dit maak my as joernalistiekstudent opgewonde oor nuwe moontlikhede en toekomstige verskuiwings in nuusverbruik.

cobaltstarling asked:

I know. I was just pointing out it would have worked for him too. As for the Paper Mario series... if you decide to play another one, I would recommend Thousand Year Door. The first one is good too, but TYD is better, plus in the first, your level is limited to 30. Can't go any higher than that. And Sticker Star is just... ugh. Interesting ideas, but... less said about it, the better, really.

Eh, my problem is when I think “I want to play a Mario game,” I generally want a platformer, not a turn based RPG.

cobaltstarling asked:

Also, I think if I remember right, the 7 HP thing was from the first Paper Mario game, in the Shy Guy Toybox, where all of the Shy Guy enemies had 7 HP. I never really used that badge though, I just generally had Goombario or Goombella in TYD as my partner at least to begin with, and I had the quick switch badge so they could make a move after being switched, and just Tattled all the enemies, which lets you see their HP if you run into an enemy that you have already tattled.

Ah, okay.  Yeah, I’m not too familiar with the Paper Mario series overall, only one I’ve played is Super Paper Mario.

Soos woorde wat op 'n 'b' eindig

Hopelik seën die noodlot my met ʼn woord wat op ‘b’ eindig teen die tyd wat ek hierdie stuk klaar getik het. Dis hopelik my arrogante uitlokking deur hierdie te skryf wat haar/hom daartoe sal beweeg om my te help. Die reuk van ʼn geheimsinnige wortelbrousel word al prominenter soos ek verder van die tema af beweeg.

Dis nie vir my verstommend hoe lank terug ek eintlik iets geskryf het nie. Ongetwyfeld was dit ʼn gevaarliklange stilte, maar helaas is die stilte besig om verbreek te word. Dis nie my bedoeling om pretensiebelaaide woorde soos inspirasie en geestesberoering rond te gooi nie. Dat daar iets moet wees wat my na hierdie punt gedryf het, kan geeneen betwyfel, maar wat dit is, is oop vir misinterpretasie. Een moontlikheid is dat ek lanklaas, voor die afgelope week, regtig iets gelees het en by implikasie niks kon skryf nie, want ek moes niks werklik verwerk nie en skryf is niks anders as selfterapie nie. Helaas is ek uit die maalkolk van leesloosheid en lewendig genoeg om ʼn paar losse gedagtes te deel.

Uiteindelik was dit korterige reisverhale wat my aan die lees gekry het. Ek was nog altyd skrikkerig daarvoor om reisverhale te lees omdat ek nie juis vir of teen omgewingdinge is nie. Solank vuurspuwende berge en nagmerriegolwe nie oor my spoel as gevolg van iets waarin ek ʼn aandeel kon gehad het nie, is ek maar vreeslik ongeërgd. Maar my hartlike dank vir die gemeenskap reisverhaalskrywers dat een van hulle my uit die beswyming gekry het. Die waarheid staan dat mense wat (besluit om) nie lees nie, in dieselfde posisie is as dié wat nie kan lees nie.

Die beloofde gedagtes wat die afgelope ruk rondmaal:

Ek wens ek het ʼn mediese skema gehad wat ʼn jaarlikse besoek aan ʼn sangoma gedek het;

My generasie is eintlik ʼn groep volwasse kinders wat goedkeuring soek vir die neteligste, eenvoudigste goed ten spyte daarvan dat hulle veel beter kon doen;

Drome kan onmoontlik ʼn vasgestelde ding wees, omdat mense en omgewings (wat heeltyd lewe en verander) noodgedwonge deel vorm daarvan;

Ander se vrese is net so geldig soos joune, hou jou oordeel vir ʼn kunswedstrydkompetisie.

Ek sê dankie vir jou wat besluit het om te lees. Soms is dit net nodig om dinge daarbuite te kry. Goed wat jou pla is beter in die buitelug waar dit kan asemhaal. In die donker en tussen die geraas van jou eie gedagtes gaan niks groei nie. Gaan voort - kom buitentoe, jy kan hier kom tob.

I am Dancing With the Stars garbage, honestly. All I’ve done today is binge watch. The worst. If you’re in the tags and looking for something fresh, new, and original, you should come check out TYD! We’re open for applications and need just a few to accept. So come check us out!
