it's a little high school musical

a list dedicated to anyone who considers aaron tveit cool or suave or anything besides the 90 year old dweeb he is

  • backstory on his dweeby life: his father is a construction worker and his mother is a special education teacher, and as a child he played violin and french horn in addition to singing. he also played three sports in high school (basketball, soccer, and golf), was active in the theatre department and choir (and thinks that he only got the lead role in little shop of horrors his freshman year because the role was for someone short and chubby), and he was the president of a business club. after high school he was offered a full ride scholarship to cornell but turned it down to study music and pursue acting
  • golf. his fucking love affair with golf
  • #hardworkonthreeonetwothreehardwork
  • he plays golf video games and online roleplaying fantasy games and call of duty, which “is a big nerd one too, i guess. no offense!”
  • “He nearly didn’t continue with Next to Normal after its 2008 Off-Broadway run once he had been cast in Mr. Stone’s Wicked as a Link-like love interest, Fiyero. Mr. Stone and others persuaded him to leave that blockbuster for a planned Next to Normal overhaul in Washington. It ended up being a hit and moving to Broadway in 2009. (A pillow embroidered “You Were RIGHT!” now sits on the sofa in Stone’s office, a gift from Tveit.)”
  • he enjoys baking sweet potato pies and eats almost the whole thing himself
  • “rad” “beautiful thanksgiving turkey sandwich” “okie dokie” “those subwoofers were bumpin” “swell!” “slammin’ rock music” “all up in my neck business” “go ahead, yuck it up” “oh gosh” “who in the heck”
  • he was playing madlibs in an interview and was asked for a silly name for a man and immediately threw out “jeeves jeeverson”
  • looks like this when telling stories:
  • he can clap with one hand. he’s very proud
  • when asked if he prefers cats or dogs: “dogs all the way. cats and i have an understanding, but we choose not to interact often.”
  • he has food allergies and reads a lot about them (saying that he would maybe be a nutritionist if he wasn’t an actor) and cooks most of his own food
  • used to “create five-act plays” for himself to keep invested in the show when he was an understudy in rent. “i thought everyone was like this!”
  • every tweet has at least two exclamation points and almost always includes something along the lines of “what a thing!!” he has also tried to tweet songs but ended up just tweeting “bah dahh bah dahh dahh da da dahhhh”
  •  
  • he was talking about his teeth in an interview and said “one thing i started doing is flossing every day. you know, i once heard this comedian say ‘i had a friend that was telling me how hard it is to quit smoking, and i was like yeah it’s as hard as it is to start flossing!’” and then aaron sat there grinning like he’d just shared comedy gold
  • he considers fiyero in wicked an asshole and “such a bad boy,” and his first week in wicked on broadway he fell over and face-planted on stage and the audience laughed at him (he enthusiastically jumped back up and kept going)
  • he once bashfully/awkwardly tried to tell an interviewer that he liked her “nice, yellow” dress
  • he’s known for memorizing his scripts super fast and knowing everybody else’s lines in addition to his own, but one day his parents visited the set of graceland and he kept messing up and getting flustered because he knew they were watching him
  • and lastly:

All I Want for Christmas

Summary: Fully inspired by the iconic karaoke scene between Troy and Gabriella in High School Musical, and even a bit of @mangosoldier‘s recent fic “Baby its Cold Outside”.

Sighing quietly to yourself, your eyes drift back to the mini stage that was held inside the building. It was time for the yearly holiday party at the Avengers tower, your oh so great friend Natasha was the one who made you come here in the first place.

She insisted for you to come out and live a little, ease up while you sip away on some holiday drinks and laugh hysterically as people took turns to sing some karaoke. God forbid you to have a turn on that stage, you would instantly panic and drop dead if that were the case.

I think for the past 10 years I’ve played What Time Is It from High School Musical 2 every last day of school like that song changed my life 

stephensondmeme  asked:

Do you have any ideas for a graduation song?? I'm most comfortable as a mezzo/soprano but my range goes up to a b6. I was thinking something like first you dream by Audra McDonald but it's a little too high.

I think you mean B5. B6 is CRAZY high. Do you mean the note JUST below “high C” because thats B5. 

Hmmm I feel like everyone does for good but I mean its good for a reason. 

Our Time- Merrily We Roll Along

You’ll Never Walk Alone - Carousel

Climb Every Mountain - Sound of Music

if you have a group of people, Seasons of Love from Rent would be cute and evryone knows it

We Go Together -Grease is literally a high school graduation haha

This is the moment -Jekyll and Hyde

Anyone else?

Today is Bat Boy: the Musical’s 16th anniversary! It opened on off-Broadway in 2001 sixteen years ago today! :D You guys have no doubt seen me blogging about this silly little musical more often then not. It’s been my favorite musical for the last 8 years since my high school production and I’ve been crazy obsessed ever since. It’s super weird but also super meaningful and fun. It uses humor to teach its lesson but the themes are surprisingly heavy and mature. It’s dark and bloody but also really funny. It’s a tragedy and a comedy - a tramedy haha.

There’s a fanpage that has all the stuff you could ever want to read about it (including the script itself), album is here, but BASICALLY it’s about a half-bat, balf-boy that’s found in a cave, taken in and raised by a family with a dysfunctional married couple and their daughter. Bat Boy and daughter fall in love, husband gets crazy jealous (literally) of how much more his wife pays attention to Bat Boy than him, he goes crazy and has a massive killing spree and tells the whole town Bat Boy did it. Stuff happens, a lot of people die, it’s great. Go check it out! :)

ok so beautiful cinnamon roll @crazyladykay asked for a sequel for the Jami/Little Brother AU so GUESS WHAT ITS HAPPENING

Part I | Part II

  • Jami made absolutely no friends in high school.
  • He had acquaintances, people who were in the same class that sometimes asked for a pen etc…, but almost everyone was terrified of him.
    • After the news of who his father was broke out in the media, even his teachers stayed away.
    • Plus he never talks? Even after he broke his no-talking streak with the Foxes, he just didn’t care enough to talk to his classmates or teachers.
    • And sometimes he would be picked up by a shiny black sports car in the middle of the day driven by none other than Andrew Minyard, the terrifying psychopathic goalkeeper for the Palmetto Foxes. 
    • Yeah, seriously, no one talked to Jami.
  • He practically lived in Fox Tower, and when it came time for parent/teacher conferences, Abby would go if Neil was busy.
  • So it was kind of a given that he would choose to go to Palmetto after his senior year.

so this year my school is doing “the little mermaid” for its spring musical and my art teacher does the wardrobe and stuff and today I asked her “how’s the wig” bc frankly if you have a bootleg ariel wig then you have a bootleg ariel

and without missing a beat she says “oh they’re getting a drag queen to make it”

and dammit y'all know that wig gonna be oN POINT

I fucking hate how little people appreciate the marching band. We bust our asses of for WEEKS to memorize like 12 minutes of music and drill only to have the fucking super fan section scream louder than our music at the gross high school T&A the poms. Have you tried walking in very specific patterns on a football field in very specific step sizes at fuckin 168 BPM without missing a step WHILE PLAYING AN INSTRUMENT FLAWLESSLY F R O M M E M O R Y??? ITS HARD AS SHIT!! BUT NO, CHEER FOR THE TEENAGE GIRLS SHOWING OFF THEIR TITS

i might try cel shading this again but as i am its just been a very long time since ive cel shaded and im tired of looking at this on my computer. ive grown so used to soft shading in photoshop! so have some flats.

i rewatched gravitation during the end of january which is about when i drew this. if anything, i dont think ill ever get over the music in particular in this series. brings me back to high school, man.

also, giving characters body types that are close to mine with a little chub despite what canon says is my favorite.

2016 Vans Custom Culture: Final Event

Last night marked the final event for our 2016 Vans Custom Culture design competition. We were excited to welcome our top 5 high school finalists to MaMA art gallery in Downtown Los Angeles for a night of fun, music by Echosmith, and a little healthy competition. It was a tough decision to make, but our judges Maddi BraggDylan Graves, and top chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo came together, and decided on the winning high school: John P. Stevens High School from Edison, N.J.. The winning school was awarded a donation of $50,000 for its arts education programs to help foster the students’ #RightToArt, and support the next generation of creative individuals. Be sure to continue following Vans Custom Culture to learn more about the program. 

ok i’m pissed off. no one in this fandom has the authority to say whether or not ryan ross has a drug addiction, the fact you’re all using an extremely old photo, ryan’s dad’s addiction, the opinion that ‘ryan looks a little rough atm’ (which he doesn’t???) and the fact he’s not pumping out new music for you rn as evidence for this addiction is embarrassing to say the least… the fact everyone won’t stop talking about it is just sad- there isn’t any news about ryan so you make up your own!!!! i know this is a sensitive area but spencer smith. a good example of how none of you have a fucking clue what you’re talking about. there was no speculation about spencer’s health even though he was in the public eye (or well the fandom’s eye) struggling with this addiction and no one knew, we were all (including myself) very surprised. so idk maybe shut up and go do your hw or smth

for just a second i’m going to try and tell everyone why its so important that Fun Home did well at the Tonys tonight. I try not to get on my pedestal too much but this is really important. 

A musical. 

About a true lived experience in the queer community. 

Of a Lesbian. 

With no editing. 

No glossing over. 

No over sexualization. 

Written by Women

some day very soon little girls everywhere will audition for community and high school productions singing “Ring of Keys” instead of “Tomorrow” 

soon lesbians will have a sound track to express the rush of a relationship.

lesbian actors/actresses will be able to sing something that for once is relatable to them and is more than the same warn out song from rent. 

representation is huge. you can’t be something if you don’t even know what it looks like. this is what it looks like.

Thank you Allison Bechdel for giving us this piece of yourself.
