‏@oohgaryc: A #BeautyAndTheBeast sing-a-long of Gaston with @edibow @TheRealLukevans, @joshgad & @AIMenken! It was magical, thanks @Disney_UK!

patheTijdens een speciale Q&A sessie met componist Alan Menken voor @BeautyandtheBeast kregen we plotseling bezoek van Luke Evans en Josh Gad. Uit volle borst brachten de drie heren het welbekende nummer van Gaston ten gehore. Zo zag dat er uit. De video van de speciale sessie volgt binnenkort op Pathe.nl.

Translation thanks to @driftinglightofthewoods​:
During a special Q&A session with composer Alan Menken for @BeautyandtheBeast we were suddenly visited by Luke Evans and Josh Gad. The three men passionately sang Gaston’s well-known song, which looked a little something like this. The video of this session will soon be up on Pathé.nl

just for heads up..

So I saw this post and a companion post about comparison of Victor and John Cameron Mitchell by @victuri-onice

 and then looking back at spoon .2Di. He is the reference of victor. Kubo sensei said it herself.

 I haven’t done much research and I actually haven’t seen Hedwig and the angry inch. This is a floppy research tbh (based on my gut feelings only)

So I’m talking as someone who never knew these people

Here are some parallels I figured out over internet :

1. He is a co-founder and DJ of the long-running New York City monthly party “Mattachine”  - Wikipedia

2.  His collab partner, musician-componist Stephen Trask

nah this is first picture I found on google images I swear

okay, this is where I felt like this thoughts of mine is slipping. I have not found any source stating who his lover is. But Mitchell did have an ex boyfriend who he claimed to be his half, jack steeb. This is why I made this post at first place,  bcs I can’t find anything precise about his relationship. Scold me later

Now no 3 and the rest willl follow up the point no 2, just to justify my thoughts

not that I ship them but

3. Their age difference

Coincidence?

4. Their ages when they first meet on 1990

I don’t know haha

Gimme your thoughts. I’m sloppy when it comes to research thus bad marks so..

Edit : I forgot who is being interviewed tbh perhaps not kubo sensei

Don’t you ever dare to say no great componist exists in this modern age. Try listening to anything he wrote, drown in the beautiful lyrics, let the melody devour you. 

Just a bit of maestro Holopainen appreciation, because I am sick of people hating Nightwish for they “way too symphonical, non-metal” style. 


Plus,

He’s one hot piece

Blind Laf AU!
I did this a while ago… perhaps a month I can’t remember QwQ It came out of a rp. *cri* Too sad.

A singer without a voice, a componist without his hearing, a sprinter without legs, an artist without sight… It would be horrible for each and every single one of them. A world they once knew and loved, forever lost to them - as if their life was taken away from them. Where once beautiful colours bathed the scenery in a mesmerizing luminescence, dull gray would take its place; where once the bewitching sounds of nature would whisk away whatever a troubled mind would worry, only the disturbing silence would be found. The mere thought was horrifying. Marie Joseph Yves Paul Gilbert du Motier Maquis de Lafayette. He was one of those unlucky people to be met with a hard blow like that. Only 19, just starting out as an artist, he had lost his eyesight. Just like that. And there was nothing anyone could do anout it, no matter how much they tried. His once happy and outgoing demeanor turned into something listless; cynical even. With each passing day, he lost sight of himself even more, being nothing more than a mere shadow of who he used to be. Today was just like any other day. Nothing special. Lafayette, as he preferred to be called, made his was down the road, a stick tightly gripped in his hand to avoid running into people. It was hard. He had moved to America on his grandmother’s wish, who hoped he would find his happiness again in the country of unlimited possibilities. She couldn’t bear seeing him as he was. It had been a little over a month now and he had yet to learn the language. It was hard without any help, nor being able to study himself. Some people around here even went as far as to make his life even harder, putting things in his way, tripping him, taking his stuff. There was nothing he could do about it. He had no one, but he didn’t even care anymore, simply letting things wash over him as they came.
