You go into these auditions and you’re always feeling very self-conscious but this one [Beauty and the Beast] I knew I could do it. I was like, ‘I can sing this [Gaston] track [and] I’m going to blow him [director Bill Condon] away’. He sat this close to me, as close to me as you. I intimated him, that was the point.
Today’s a special day! Today is not only Father’s Day, but Alex and Ariel Hirsch’s birthday! Let’s celebrate by cracking open your copy of Journal 3, prepping your blacklight and invisible ink pens, and jotting down everything here in the special edition so you can have a copy for yourself without resorting to eBay or shady second-hand Craigslist deals!
I was lucky number 02149
to get a copy of the special edition of Journal 3. Well, lucky as in “I could afford to buy it and pre-ordered it back in March the exact
day I heard about it going on sale.” Still, I am PSYCHED to share this with
everyone! Admittedly I didn’t take photos of every single page – only the ones
with black-light effects that were more than ink spatters. Some I had to take
[kinda big] pictures of individually, to be able to read the text properly, and
others were multi-page spreads that I couldn’t resist capturing in their
beautiful glowy glory.
Of course I’ll be captioning them all for you,
in case you can’t download/read them. Also, there’s a few secret codes in here! But
did you really expect anything less? Also also, this is a 9 page word document (not counting pics), so I’m splitting it up into 3 parts. Especially considering the size of these pictures.
“As I once said to one of my brothers, ‘This is your life, not a rehearsal.’ Somewhere there’s a score being kept, so you have an obligation to live life as well as you can, be as engaged as you can. The human condition means that we can zone out and forget what the hell we’re doing. So the secret is to have a sense of yourself, your real self, your unique self. And not just once in a while, or once a day, but all through the day, the week and life. You know what they say: ‘Ain’t no try, ain’t nothing to it but to do it.’”
Happy Birthday to the man, the myth, the legend Bill Murray!
Happy birthday to my beautiful immortal father Keanu Reeves! You may be 53 but we all know you stopped aging in 1990. You have been a huge part of my childhood, and a huge part of my life in general. You’re the most beautiful soul and I just want you to be happy and healthy, you deserve the world. I love you.
bill was — there was no other word for it — cool. he was tall, with long hair that he had tied back in a ponytail. he was wearing an earring with what looked like a fang dangling from it. bill’s clothes would not have looked out of place at a rock concert, except that harry recognized his boots to be made, not of leather, but of dragon hide.
