julie andrews is better than you

calling all Julie fans!!

Short Explanation: 

Tell me why you love Julie Andrews in any format, way, and/or type of media you prefer! (could be a 3 word sentence, anything is fine)

Long Explanation + Details:

Hi! So I’ve been the actual worst these past few months and have been totally neglecting tumblr. College is not the easiest thing ever and takes up quite a bit more time than I anticipated. Seriously though, art school (all school, really) is hard. So, for a final in one of my classes, I’ve decided to create a Julie Andrews shrine (how cool is it that I can actually do that for an assignment?!??). My intention is to emulate the shrines of saints (just to give ya a better idea as to what the final product will be). Anyway, I need your help! 

For a portion of the shrine, I want to include fan letter notes. That’s where you all (hopefully) come in.

 If any of you have a memory (or memories) that you associate with Julie, how she’s impacted your life, or even just an explanation as to why you like her, I’d love to include it in my final piece! It can be absolutely anything; a picture, a letter, a phrase, a poem, literally everything. Even just a few words like “I wish Julie Andrews was my real mom,” is totally acceptable. You can address it as though you’re talking about her or directly to her, either way is fine. Everyone who sends something in will, of course, be credited (which, speaking of giving credit where credit is due, I cannot find the original owner/creator of this gif, so if it’s you, let me know so I can credit you!). 

So, if you’re feeling up to it, either respond to this post or message me privately! Thank you all so much!

“Dear Kelli,

This Honorary Doctorate is so deserved. You are a gift to the world of musical theatre - to the arts in general, and the fact your own Alma Mater is recognizing you must make this honor very special. I hope you have a lovely time - relax and enjoy. These are treasured moments of appreciation for the joy you have given us all. I think you know I’m a huge fan of your artistry, your beautiful voice, your discipline, and I send warmest wishes and much love.

From, 
Julie Andrews”

[Richard Burton] was a man who at his peak (or valley) was known to drain three bottles of vodka in a day—a man who once proclaimed, “If you can’t do Hamlet straight through with a hangover, you ought to get right off the damn stage.” According to Robert Sellers’s terrific biography Hellraisers, during the theatrical run of Camelot, starring opposite Julie Andrews, Burton wagered that he could start with a bottle of vodka while performing the matinee and then work through a bottle of cognac during the evening performance—without showing the effects. After the last curtain fell, Andrews, not even realizing he was drunk, commented that his performance was “a little better than usual.” Performing in John Gielgud’s production of Hamlet, Burton downed a whole quart of brandy in one evening’s performance. The only noticeable difference, a critic would note, “was that he played the last two acts as a homosexual.”

Oh Richard Burton. I can’t get enough of you, you total psychopath. I’m guessing the alcohol’s to blame for this horrendous carpet-bag you confused with a shirt. (how sexy is Julie Andrews though)

  • Emma Watson
  • Natalie Portman
  • Julie Andrews

(Note: For me, they are all in the podium, in the same level)

If there’s one thing we learned last season on The Walking Dead, it’s that when Carol Peletier offers you cookies, you take them…because you may not like the other option she has in mind. In fact, the only thing better than Carol’s cookies is when an EW Walking Dead cover story comes with them.
