how to look like a movie star

Forgot this was in my sketchbook! After I saw Star Wars The Last Jedi, I couldn’t stop thinking about Rey and Kylo Ren. Something about the force connection and how they interacted with each other really intrigued me.
The day after I saw the movie, I was getting out of the shower and looked in the foggy mirror. And you know how sometimes you’ll see an image or a shape when looking at a tile floor or on a wall? Well, this is what I saw! The highlights and shadows in the reflection started to look like silhouettes of faces morphed side by side. I immediately stopped blow drying my hair, grabbed my sketchbook, and sketched like crazy before the fog lifted!

types of love I feel for you:

peachy love - a comfy love, as cozy as afternoon sunlight in the summer, as warm as coffee shops and summer picnics. being with you is like listening to music - I forget my worries and sunlight is brighter. sharing tiramisu cake, laughing so hard tears surface, going on adventures…moments like these carry a hint of soft nostalgia, even while they are happening.

starlight love - I’m enchanted by the pretty colors in your eyes - when the sunlight hits them, they remind me of precious stones. I imagine talking to you until 3 am on a rooftop, the stars bright above, frozen in time. when I look at you, it’s like admiring a beautiful work of art. thinking about you makes my heart blush. I can’t help but gaze at you, wondering how anyone could be so perfect.

rosy love - seeing you gives me butterflies. you make me feel calm and flustered at the same time, a feeling I’ve never felt before. sometimes, I imagine a soft love song that plays in the background when I’m with you, like we’re in a movie. all I want to do is cuddle with you, lie next to you, go to cute ice cream parlors and hold your hand. I’m either with you or waiting to see you again, and you make me happier than anything else in the world.

lunar love - you know my secrets, I know yours. like the moon, you understand my mannerisms, emotions and thoughts like no one else, and I can tell from a glance if you’re only pretending to be happy, or if something is troubling you. at night when you can’t sleep, I’m here. when I’m sad, you know the perfect things to say. It’s like we were both created to heal and comfort the other, like soulmates. I know that as long as you’re here, I’ll be okay.

im always shocked that ppl really genuinely love and care about hux from star wars because while i was watching the movie my literal ONLY thought about him was “god that guy is ugly” and then after the movie i saw all this shit about some dude named hux i didnt even know who the fuck he was i had to look him up on google dot com like what the fuck movie were y’all watching that this was a character that mattered even for a second cuz it sure wasnt star wars the force fucking awakens jesus christ 

out of all the live action disney remakes, the lion king is the one that’s pissing me off the most. i mean. this is a movie that’s entirely about talking animals. which means that there’s no fucking way this is going to be a ‘live-action’ film. it’s not a cinderella, a beauty and the beast, a mulan, or even a jungle book. they all had fantastical elements that had to be animated, but they still starred real-life actors in real sets that could actually do a live-action performance. lion king, on the other hand, will have to be entirely animated. so it will just be the exact same fucking animated movie except the animation will make the lions and hyenas look hyper-realistic, i guess. how very necessary. hooray.

Unanswered questions have been nagging at me. Kim is like so many other women, it seems to me, who have grown up with trauma. And yet there is no talk of the long-term effects. I decide to put the question of sexual abuse to her plainly. She tells me that yes, something did happen in the home of a relative when she was a girl, but she doesn’t want to get into the details. She has never talked about this before. She doesn’t want to dwell on the pain. I am saddened by her admission, and the fact that so many years later, she is still so clearly devastated.

And I am saddened that even here, in a place for relaxation and nurturing, she is unable to divest herself, even for a few hours, of the blue contact lenses and blond wig.

“Think about it,” she confesses when I ask her to talk about her experience of skin color. “The girls that [men] dated when I was younger were light-skinned and tall. I’m short and brown-skinned. And I always wondered … how do I fit in?”

Did she ever overcome the feeling of being ugly?

“I really haven’t,” she admits. “Honestly, though, I think being Lil’ Kim the rapper helped me deal with it better. Because I got to dress up in expensive clothes, and I got to look like a movie star or whatever. I think doing photo shoots and seeing all the people respond to me has helped. [But] I still don’t see what they see.”


excerpt from the mask of lil’ kim (the washington post, sept. 2000).

I’ve seen The Greatest Showman twice now...

And it is officially my favourite movie of 2017. This is going to be a long post with lots of gifs (none of them are mine). You have been warned.

This movie is essentially my kryptonite with it’s beautiful interracial romance

It’s bad ass choreography

Like look at how beautiful they are when they’re dancing on the roof and how fluid the movements are and I just wow

And the shot glasses in The Other Side like OMG dude that bartender needs to get some serious credit, damn son and then Hugh and Zac just killed it

Oh and Rewrite the Stars…not enough words to praise the choreography in this scene. Has a musical number ever been done on a trapeze before? I really don’t think so. It astounds me that Zac and Zendaya did most of this (If not all, I’m not sure) by themselves and they looked damn good doing it too.

And look at these costumes!

I want Jenny Lind’s wardrobe. For real.

You can’t really see her dress in the gif above but it’s the best I could find.

AND THE MUSIC, OH LORD THE MUSIC. I HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE SOUNDTRACK NONSTOP SINCE I SAW THE MOVIE. 

Seriously if “This Is Me” does not win best song at the Golden Globes there will be hell to pay, because the lyrics are incredibly moving and Keala Settle’s performance is one of the best things I’ve ever seen in my life.

And starting the movie with Hugh Jackman saying “Ladies and Gents this is the moment you’ve waited for” and doing those poses was such a powerhouse move. The sheer ballsiness and confidence of that act just blows my mind.

A Million Dreams is one of my favourite numbers and I love how it shows Barnum and Charity transitioning from childhood to adulthood and how Charity has always been the one constant in Barnum’s life. I’ve already mentioned how gorgeous their dance sequence on the roof was.

Rewrite the Stars is beautiful with the way it shows how much Anne and Phillip want to be with each other but Anne is always out of Phillip’s reach and I CANNOT WITH HOW MUCH I LOVE THEM AND THIS NUMBER OKAY?

And look at the smooth moves in Come Alive. Basically every song has a purpose, every song moves the story forward and/or comes out of an emotional moment for these characters. Nothing is frivolous, nothing is wasted. 

To sum up, The Greatest Showman is a tour de force of romance, costuming, choreography, and music. It is visually spectacular and the transitions and the cuts are seamless. The casting is on point and I want Zac Efron, Zendaya, Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Keala Settle, and Rebecca Ferguson to make a million more movies like this. Also I firmly believe that Pasek and Paul are this generations Rodgers and Hammerstein and I can’t wait to see what they do next. Please go see this movie and watch Hugh Jackman doing this

I LOVE IT ALL!

the reason that the bad writing, especially regarding mischaracterizations, in tlj is a real problem and not just something fandom is making up is because when you look at regular fans (people who like star wars and have seen the movies but don’t obsessively think/blog about it etc) their opinions towards certain characters have drastically changed since the force awakens

after tfa poe was tons of people’s new favorite star wars character. Now we’re seeing buzzfeed ““thinkpieces”” on how he’s worse than jar jar. On twitter today i saw some journalist call him a “fuckboy.” Poe dameron? a fuckboy? POE?? 

after tfa there was a ton of stuff about how rey is a #girlpower kickass feminist hero etc who doesn’t need a man. Now i’m seeing more reylo shippers than ever before, and the ship being mentioned by name in articles on popular websites (whereas before it seemed to mostly only exist as a named concept within the bad corners of the star wars fandom on tumblr)

finn? the breakout star of the force awakens and new male lead of star wars? i’m barely seeing him mentioned online anywhere but by the finn stans i follow here. Hmmm maybe that’s what happens when you sideline a character from the plain plot and give him a narrative that isn’t particularly interesting or important

anyway, the bad characterizations in the last jedi aren’t just something tumblr fandom is inventing out of thin air. You can tell something has changed just by the way star wars fans outside of tumblr are talking about these characters very differently than they did two years ago

for @joyfire-week (belatedly, oops), a mash up of “no capes AU” and “royalty” prompts. 

I wanted to try something different than the European royalty-style that I’m used to, especially since Kori isn’t from any Earth nation. So we have Mughal princess Kori (thank you for suggesting the reference, @ileliberte :D), Ming dynasty Jason (calling on the idea that Lady Shiva is his mom if you want to), and Renaissance Roy, with the boys as… merchants? mercenaries? pirates? …outlaws? Up to you. :)

I initially had Jason in British-ish get up as well (which doesn’t preclude him being of chinese descent) but i decided i wanted them all to be from places distant to each other. Here’s jay’s renfest get-up for the curious:

One thing I can’t get over in Star Trek Beyond is how when Spock starts laughing, Bones, for a quick second, looks really happy like damn I didn’t know you could smile it’s a good look for you. 

And then he immediately proceeds to panic because shit waIT THAT’S NOT RIGHT.

Some of my  favourite comments by Araki about JJBA stands
  • Hierophant Green: "I wanted some color balance between the allies and enemies, so he ended up green. And, Jotaro mentions this too, but green kinda reminds you of melons (laughs)."
  • Tower of Gray: "The idea came from how annoying it would be if a bug got inside an airplane."
  • The Hand: "It's really strong, with no limit to its powers. If Okuyasu were smart, he'd be unstoppable (laughs)."
  • Pearl Jam: "It's a cooking Stand, so I gave it a somewhat crazy appearance based off of tomatoes and Italian vegetables. The idea was, how can I create suspense using cooking as the theme?"
  • StrayCat: "When I was a kid, my grandpa had a cat named Chako. We doted on it, but once it hurt me when I ignored it... I've never trusted cats since then (laughs)."
  • King Crimson: "It was shocking how, in the movie 'Total Recall', there was a guy with an extra face on his belly, with its own personality... For Diavolo, I thought he would look punk if his hair had a leopard pattern."
  • Weather Report: "It's a Stand that controls the weather, so I made it look like clouds. I wanted to make frogs and all sorts of other stuff fall from the sky, maybe like a beastmaster."
  • C-Moon: "The advanced form of Whitesnake, right? He looks a little threatening now. Kinda like Darth Maul from Star Wars?"
  • Hey Ya!: "It doesn't really do anything. It doesn't make you lucky, but it can help you feel more optimistic."
  • Cream Starter: "A Stand that sprays stuff out to let you transform and stuff, that's all (laughs). And when you have a spray, you think of shaving cream, so I made it spray stuff like 'fshhh'."

The 4th house. (The Real You)🌑

Aries: even more so than an Aries moon you’re truly a blunt and foreword person. You hate people who can’t go after what they want and have a tendency to lack a sympathetic approach. You’re deeply sensual but also have a lively and restless disposition about you. When lovers or friends spend a night or marry you for that matter they’ll see your more impulsive and high energy self—which may greatly differ from your natal moon or sun. You’re way more aggressive and DOM then most people see you as! And can express emotions in a more fiery and in our face format! In a way you’re hard headed and like to get your way but that’s just the way you are haha! Your lovers may be surprised by how sexual and raw you are. YOU NEED EXCITEMENT AND GET BORED SO EASY. if you’re sitting down in place something isn’t right.

Clothes are therapy for you and you tend to have huge closest full of them. Your lovers will be surprised by how sensual and possessive you really are aha! Don’t let them catch you liking someone’s picture on any social media that’s how you die.

Gemini: even more so than a Gemini moon you’re SCATTERED AF. Some days you’re zoom zoom, while other days you’re the mad rampant indie junkie. You love being stimulated and often have a hard time staying focused on just one thing. You’re pretty enticed by life itself and have no issue keeping yourself entertained. Media outlets and bing watching Series you already know you’re not going to finish is a thing here. When friends or lovers marry you or stay a night they’ll see how aloof and emotionally charged you can be—they’ll meet a chameleon.

There is a tendency for you to be very hug oriented and soft and plushy deep down! You care a lot about how your actions affect the emotional well being of others no matter if your natal moon is in a more rigid moon like cap or a more cooler sun like aqua. You have a naturally warm and youthful energy. You tend to bump to oldies and classic music. When your friends visit or when you get married they’ll often notice how homey it feels when they walk in, they’ll see how deep and how you wear your heart on your sleeve in reality. Lovers will be shocked by how sensitive and protective you really are

Leo: even more than a Leo Moon you’re quite the vivacious and proud mrs and mr. Your energy is so powerful and you have a very tenacious mouth on you. Like a cat you tend to prowl and may set your dominance or specific things or areas of your home. You love to shine and be noticed even if you’re just sitting on a couch Lool. You tend to sit or lay on specific areas in repetition. You can be quite dramatic and have a very overwhelming force of emotions that most people may never know until they spend a night or marry you. You love attention no matter what and who ever you marry is going to have to give you a lot of it but you’re the same way and tend to shower immense levels of affection and time on someone you love. You’re the type to have a more masculine and broadcasted personality deep down. OH AND MY ARE YOU A CONFIDENT LITTLE SUNFLOWER. A lot of sexual energy is inside of you btw so you know 🙄. Lovers will be surprised by how cocky and forward you are but damn they’ll be intoxicated by your energy.

Virgo: even more than a Virgo moon you’re quite the reserved soul! No matter how many first house placements you have—no matter how fiery your chart, their is always that hidden energy of you that is just seemingly hidden from the world as if you’re wearing a cloak. You don’t tell much about yourself and tend to be perfectly fine with running the show from behind the curtain. You love clean things—vintage things—things with a beautiful broken down aspect to them, something that just needs a little love and care. You’re soooo sweet and naturally attracted to the earth and it to you. Animals love you—including bugs gurl so look either bug spray or make some friends with em cause they’ll follow you. Dogs, cats, birds anything you name it you love em and they see you as a very feminine and mothering energy no matter your gender. You are extremely humble and hate boisterous people. You tend to be on the more quite and nanny ish side of things when people come over and when you’re married you’re very servicing to your lover—theirs a very virgin and innocent energy about you and I’ve noticed with most people with this placement sex happens later in life and usually with someone who’ll take care of you as you’re very picky. Lovers will be surprised by how calm and grounded you are—the quiet nature about you.

Libra: even more than a libra moon you are mr and mrs glamour to the core of your bones. Their is a charming and naturally magnetic energy to you. To the hair flips—to the rolling of your cuffs. Something about you is so boy or girl next door. You have a childish and avoidant nature to your real personality and tend to hate things that are a bit to messy or unkempt. You love a good aesthetic and a good fairy tail. You day dream like fuck and at times even more than Pisces here 😂. Romance movies are your thing but you also love fashion!! You tend to follow makeup and or clothing vlogs or youtubers and can have a very trusting and sweet nature about you. You tend to look for love in everything and it finds you in the same way.

Lovers will see how romantic you are and may be shocked at how charming and smooth you can really be.

Scorpio: even more than a Scorpio moon you’re a pretty edgy yet adorable teddy bear. You have a streak for malicious behavior from time to time and can have your fair share of bad coping mechanism but you also have a outstanding backbone and pull through much more mental and emotional strain than most people could even take. Your sexy and very sexually capable, it comes very naturally to you. You also have these weird and strange little things that you do in private that people usually don’t even see if they spend time with you aha. You’re secretive and love privacy and tend to need to pull away and recharge from time to time. You crave intensity and often find yourself unconsciously drawn to situations that exude it. You love darker colors and can have a more darker lit room than most people. OH MY GOD THE BLINDS ARE ALWAYS CLOSED. When friends come to visit or you’re married they’ll notice you’re way more intense and observant than they’d previously seen—and even that you may have a slightly controlling energy about you over your surroundings but they’ll see what a sweetheart you are and how tightly you hold those dearly to you. VERY PROTECTIVE. Lovers will well basically they’ll sit on your face that’s all I have to say.

Sagittarius: even more than a Sagittarius moon you’re a party—you move fast and can have a brooding but deeply unbothered attitude towards life and people. You love to live life for what it is not what other make it out to be. You love the rugged and more animalistic side of life. Can be quite the force of nature and have a need to do things the way you want to. You struggle with forced intimacy and tend to crave the weird and wonky in life over the traditional and thoughtful side of things. You wear a huge smile on your face in reality and no matter how serious you present yourself you have a crazy excitingly upbeat personality about yourself that is unmatched. Friends and lovers who stay with you will meet the more contagious side of you—they’ll feel intimidated but also extremely uplifted in your presence like you’re some sort of charismatic progressive world leader—or a dj at a rave. Emotions come and go so I’m a sense you’re their one moment and gone the next sometimes. Lovers will be chasing after you across the house with a broom stick and a rope.

Capricorn: even more than a Capricorn moon you can be a bit gloomy. Their is a serious nature to you—like old whine and a noir film. You are a lot more wise than people think. A significant mental age gap exist between you and most people in your life which causes you to cast people aside before giving them a chance at the first sight of immaturity no matter your other planets. You like peace and quiet—serenity and objectivity and Anyone or anything that serves as a blockage to that is well kicked to the curve. Their is a sensual and tangible depth to you sometimes it’s so heavy that people feel like they’re in the presence of royalty or even in the presence of authority. Friends or lovers who live with you may feel like they need to live up to your standards—like they’re not good enough but they’ll love the challenge you give them to do better and be better-and man are you stable no matter what you go through you’re the biggest rock for your own self. Lovers will be cautious around you for sure!!

Aquarius: even more than an Aquarius moon you’re like live-wire. Like an intricate set of electrical wires you dance from chord to chord and never seem to miss a beat. You hate to much of a mush pile when it comes to other people’s emotions or even yours for that matter. You have sudden burst of insight but also sudden burst of energy as well as sudden burst of lethargy from out of nowhere. No matter if your moon is in a water sign theirs a side of you that’s always objectively gazing and analyzing the intent and field your emotions are coming from. You tend to isolate yourself mainly because you’re so unique from other people—in how you function and in how you live your life. You need change and hate the same old same ol. Even in love you’ll crave a bit of chaos from time to time and may even create it because you can. You love understanding people but can struggle with knowing who you really are past the interactions. Because Saturn also rules Aquarius you do have bouts of seriousness and can be very judgmental from time to time and when people stay with you or upon marriage they’ll see just how sporadic and changeable you really are! They’ll meet your revolutionary nature and your amiable nature to please the masses. Lovers will adapt to your weirdness and even be excited by your strangeness!

Pisces: even more so than a Pisces moon you’re hard to see. Theirs a confusing aura about you that can make others distrusting or perplexed by you! Much like Virgo due to them being opposite signs but still the same modality their is a tendency for others to feel this energy even when you’re out of your home. You are deeply introspective and have an almost spiritual guide that leads you through life. You can be very submissive in some cases but also it’s hard for anyone to really ever come at you with bad intent since you are very observant of the intent of others—having an easier time than most seeing bad energy comping from continents away. You are superstitious and tend to actually be heavily connected to religion in a personal way. You’re forgiving and have a hard time holding on to negative feelings but because of this it may take you longer than most people to realize when toxic people gotta go. Intimacy is a big deal to you so deep down you distance yourself from people before they get to close as to protect yourself. You do daydream a lot and loveeeee movies! Anything that allows you to dissociate and figuratively disappear as well as metaphorically cease to exist. Make no mistake you’re extremely emotionally capable and are very willful in nature—you’re just also kinda a cute little prince and princess. When your friends stay with you or even when you’re married people will see the sweetness in your character and see how sacrificial you truly are deep down. OH not saying for all people with this placement but I’ve seen drug use being a manifestation and depending on how Neptune is aspected this is either something that runs in the family and can also be done as a coping mechanism! So you may smoke with your s/o or friends when they come by! Hence the propensity to “dissociate” lovers will in some cases either abuse you(underdeveloped) or they’ll stand with you through it all forever.

This cel art is from Joker 3100, an ancient artbook released by Mamoru Nagano from the late 80s.

Basically, this is Nagano’s vision for what an Five Star Stories anime adaptation would have looked like at the time. More simple character designs, detailed backgrounds, and more oil stains on the Mortar Headds. Compare this to the actual movie by Sunrise and you can see how different his vision was, it was much less of a shoujo fantasy and more of a fairy tale war epic. It’s interesting to see how his vision has changed from back then to now, with Gothicmade (the movie) being his current vision for an FSS anime adaptation.

Nagano once intended to direct his own short half-hour Five Star Stories OVA, titled “Tales of Joker”, a few years before this artbook was released.  It was supposed to be animated by Gainax (the ad makes special mention of Hideaki Anno), as a way of promoting the FSS resin kits for their Otaku merchandise store (General Products), sadly other than an ancient snippet from the magazine for the fifth Wonder Festival, this project never saw the light of day.  This all happened a few years before the official FSS movie by Sunrise went into production.

These images may have been remnants of the production art for that abandoned film.

Star Wars’s Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver dish on the epic franchise and beyond in V Magazine.

“I had no sense of what I was getting into. No sense of what was really going to happen,” confesses Daisy Ridley of her first-ever role as Rey in 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Currently, Ridley is on location in a remote forest a few hours outside of Montreal for Chaos Walking, a 2019 sci-fi release costarring Tom Holland. But it’s this December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the follow-up to The Force Awakens, that is shining a blinding light-saber-tinged spotlight on Ridley. The Force Awakens was the first movie since 1997’s Titanic to sell more than 100 million tickets in the U.S. 

It isn’t typical for a young actress’s breakthrough film to have the biggest domestic opening weekend in history, raking in $238 million, but Ridley isn’t all that typical herself. As the face of the nearly $10 billion franchise, Ridley has ushered in a new era of Star Wars. Following Carrie Fisher’s untimely passing last year, Ridley’s character, a fiercely independent heroine, serves as a particularly strong female voice in a galaxy far, far away. However, a far- flung galaxy isn’t Ridley’s only on-screen locale this season. 

In November, Ridley appears opposite Johnny Depp and an all-star cast in Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express. The suspenseful tale follows 13 passengers, played by the likes of Penélope Cruz, Judi Dench, and Willem Dafoe, stranded on an opulent passenger train with a murderer on the loose. Aside from blockbuster films, Ridley also produced and narrated the documentary The Eagle Huntress, which follows a teenage girl in the mountains of Mongolia as she becomes the first female eagle huntress in the sport’s 2,000-year history. 

Ahead of The Last Jedi’s release, Ridley catches up with her Star Wars costar (and “bestie”), Adam Driver. 


Daisy Ridley Hey Adam, it’s been so long.

Adam Driver Hey Daisy, how are you? When is the last time that I saw you?

DR Well, I don’t know because you don’t come to all the fun things that I go to. [laughs] Last July? It’s been like a year!

AD Oh, yeah, I guess. I’m much taller now.

DR How has your life changed? [laughs]

AD Oh, just in little ways. So, where are you now?

DR I’m in Canada, two hours outside of Montreal in these creepy woods. We feel like we’re going to be killed at any moment in this cabin. We’re shooting a film, Chaos Walking, with Doug Liman, Tom Holland, and Demián Bichir. It’s fucking cool.

AD Did you guys have time to meet each other before? Or did you just kind of jump right in?

DR I had met Tom Holland twice very briefly—for, like, 30 seconds—and I had met Doug Liman once and we spoke a bit, but it was very much feet first, it was super quick.

AD So, is it hard for you to meet people and just kind of go? Or do you prefer it?

DR [laughs] I mean, as we discovered, Adam, we became besties last year, but we had met some years before. It really takes me a while to relax with people. I don’t think I’m very good at meeting people: I feel awfully uncomfortable. So, I find meeting people very stressful. But it gets easier, and I think I’m getting better at being okay with that, you know?

AD Yeah, you always seemed very open, but I feel the same as you. When I meet people, I don’t know how to small talk very well, so it’s always like two back-and-forths of like, “Hey, how are you? How’s the weather?” And then five seconds later, I’m like, “So, what’s your relationship like with your mother?” It always goes really deep really quickly.

DR [laughs] I think you’re really good at it.

AD Oh, thank you. So, this is about Star Wars: If Rey was a color…I’m kidding.

DR No, oh my God. [laughs]

AD What were your initial conversations with J.J. [Abrams] about your character? Did you know the character’s name was Rey?

So I’m just casually mention to all the people who may have followed me for Trollhunters and Stricklake that I have a movie recommendation I feel compelled to pass on to you: 

It just so happens to be one of my best beloved movies, a film that pretty much owns my heart and soul –– Strange Magic. 

We have a badass, sword-swinging Fairy Princess…

…a legitimately intimidating Beast who is also a badass…

..but who is also a super secret sweetheart and a total fucking nerd…

…and what’s more, we have a Beauty and Beast relationship where neither one physically changes.

It’s a romance built on both of them being competent, well-matched badasses with enough sexual tension to make you blush…

and on them being helpless dorks who don’t have a clue on how to handle the undeniable attraction between them.

Also, we have music. Great music. Alan Cumming and Evan Rachel Wood star in this, and both of them put their gorgeous voices to good use. 

It’s just a very lovely and earnest gem of a movie and it has a very sweet depiction of a Beauty and Beast romance, okay?

(I wasn’t fucking kidding about how flagrant this movie gets with teasing about  the sexy times ahead for these two nerds, look at them, they’re shameless). 

If you dig Jukebox Musicals, Beauty and Beast Romances, Monster Boyfriends, and movies like Labyrinth and Moulin Rouge, then go watch Strange Magic!

OK, I'm annoyed.  I saw a post a few days ago that said that people shouldn't be upset by the fact that Emma Watson is auto tuned in Beauty and the Beast because all movie musicals are auto tuned.

So, this is one of the many reasons the casting of a big name celebrity with little to no musical theatre experience bothers me so much.  Audiences are starting to think that in order to be in a musical, signing talent is not a necessity.

Also, this person obviously hasn’t seen a musical that was made before the year 2000.  Really, even later than that!  More like, anything before 2010. 

Here’s a homework assignment for this weekend.  Don’t worry it’s easy.  Look up:

In watching some videos of these wonderful people, you will see how much work goes into the craft of musical theatre and movie musicals.  

And, it bears mentioning, that at the time, these actors were “big names” and they were box office draws based on their singing and dancing talent.  I’m all for bringing that back.  If Hollywood wants to keep making movie musicals, then let’s bring back the movie musical star!

Your senior year roommate calls herself Clarity. She’s very small and rumpled and distant, and she goes for long walks in the forest south of campus when she’s frustrated. You aren’t friends, but you coexist peacefully. It’s enough.

The creature on your co-owned Walmart futon isn’t Clarity.

It looks like her. Enough to fool a casual observer, certainly. Enough to fool someone who hasn’t been soldering sterling silver for six hours. But you have, and the truth of silver lingers, and the Thing That Looks Like Clarity is sprouting delicate flowers from the skin of its bare shoulders.

It’s sitting cross-legged and perfectly, terribly still, tracking your eyes as you take all this in. When you sigh and set down your backpack, it says, “Hello, smith. There didn’t seem to be any sense in pretending.”

“Jeweler,” you say, and, “I go by Florence, these days. What should I call you?”

It blinks, languid and slow. “I’m not here to usurp. I’m a… placeholder.”

“It’s still confusing as shit, my guy.”

It considers this at length. Finally, with the air of one who has just solved a great puzzle, it says “Claire. We will know, the two of us.”

“Works for me. Nice meeting you, Claire.”

And that seems to be all there is to say. Your roommate’s been stolen by the Fair Folk, you’re living with a changeling, and there’s not much you can do about either of these things. You scroll through Instagram until it gets tired of watching you and wanders out into the hallway.

So that’s Claire.
