things i am living for in the drunk history episode:
“hi. i’m stage’s lin-manuel miranda” because it is Good™ from that moment on
how eloquent lin is while still being shitfaced
“history spoiler” aka the phrase i will be using always from here on out
how he clearly could literally be the most boring person to tell any story on drunk history ever based on the fact that he is completely coherent when quoting the letter but he knows why you’re here and he knows how to be funny thank god
“HERE COMES HAMILTON ON A FLAMING SHIP. YOUR ASS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME”
i cannot believe lin-manuel miranda just quoted half baked in the context of a founding father truly he is the voice of a generation
randomly throwing in quotes from his musical like we won’t notice
black george washington #nice
long-suffering father washington aka the most accurate portrayal of washington
maria reynolds not being genderbent
seriously y’all i am here for lesbian alexander hamilton give me approximately 500 fanfics
“Hamilton is Not a Great Dude” is going to be a paper i write one day mark my words
the sexy jazz music playing when he quotes the reynolds pamphlet as a history major with a specialty in us history i’m angry that i will never be able to think of the reynolds pamphlet without it but as a history lover i am alive
“the reynolds pamphlet is like dick 101″ stop stealing all of my future paper titles
i have been saying for years that the founding fathers were children and no one believed me so i’m happy to have this episode of drunk history to show them to prove my point next time
questlove calling in the middle and fangirling about drunk history

singing “i know who i want to take me home” while staring lovingly into burr’s eyes
“this motherfucker right here”
“burr was never a monster” just fuck me up
this episode was 20 minutes long but i think it changed me
theres just a what-if here about ritsu getting just a bit of psychic empathy and achieving the rest with his writers brain, and theres also a headcanon about mob not being a very good singer or not playing any instrument but being able to whistle very well
I remember theres a word for that, the very good whistler thing, from a jeffery deaver book Ive read, but I cant find it in my memory anymore
Not Even Going Deaf Will Stop Beethoven From Making Music ... To His Neighbors’ Annoyance
Beethoven loved especially at the time of dusk so sit down at the grand piano and to phantasize, also to often play the violin and the viola, for which purpose those two instruments had always to be placed on top of the piano. How these plays sounded, as the external sense [Beethovens ears] couldn’t witness them anymore, doesn’t need to be mentioned. Especially the strings, which Beethoven could no more tune himself, were a source of great auditory pain for everyone in the vicinity.

It’s no surprise that Lin-Manuel Miranda is a music lover. We can witness his meticulous care and respect for music oscillating from his Broadway-musical hits to singing and writing songs for movies. Now, Lin Manuel has elegantly curated a star-studded mixtape on his Spotify account. He calls it “I relish your wit! I SALSA YOUR FACE.” The mixtape features classics from salsa legends such as Celia Cruz and Willie Colón. Lin-Manuel Miranda proudly accentuates the beauty of salsa and the culture it is derived from.
More than music, Lin-Manuel is offering us a history lesson. Music is a portrait of culture, and it falls within the framework of oral tradition. Songs provide us with a socio-political landscape of society. Hence, music is an educational tool; it may be used to create awareness, provide knowledge of the past, and a map of where we are heading.
Lin-Manuel Miranda showcases a wide selection of salsa songs. More than percussions and rhythm sections – it’s the importance behind salsa and its identity. Salsa is beautifully anchored in voices of immigrants, the sound of the combined stories and miles travelled from home. Beyond a genre or rhythm, salsa is the quintessential sum of latinx experiences.
one last month, and he will leave for new york, while she will leave for UCLA. perhaps for the best. unspoken truths can be a good thing, particularly when it is known how destructive they could be. but for now, it is just the radio’s music from his car, a hidden place behind the bleachers, her head resting against his shoulder and his palms on the lower of her back. no one but the two of them dancing away from the prom’s frenzy -or at least ‘trying’ to dance. but the moon being their only witness, the secret is safe.
