literally favorite line of my favorite song

On Ke$ha’s hit 2010 song, Blah Blah Blah, she says “zip your lip like a padlock”. I never even questioned this 7 years ago but I’ve been thinking about it lately. It makes no sense. Padlocks don’t zip. 

Musical Screening Q&A

 HUGE thanks to @jjosh-lyman​ / johnsfkennedys (twitter) for sending me her audio recording from the post-screening q&a. ** Please note: the first few minutes are missing and I transcribed this to the best of my abilities **

1. What’s it like working with Ginny?

Josh: It’s been… It’s been.. What has it been?

Ginny: Magical? (Audience laughs)

Josh: (laughs) It’s been magical.  No, it has, it’s been–

Ginny: The best thing that’s ever happened to you! (Audience laughs)

Josh: It’s been, it has been a magical situation. You’re working with another actor who knows you so well. You can be very vulnerable, you can be very open, you can be very brave, you can do all those kinds of things. So yeah, it’s a real gift.

Moderator: I’m feeling the feels, y’all, are you?

2. What is your favorite Disney character or movie?

Adam: This will sound phony, but it is Snow White. (Audience goes aw) 

Ginny: Right answer again!

Adam: It’s true!

Josh: I’m really glad we came to you.

Adam: It was the first movie that I remember seeing as a child and it clearly made an impression.

Ginny: I really like Zootopia because of um– (Audience laughs - can’t hear the rest of her answer) An equally savvy answer would be that we’re very partial to Winnie the Pooh. Pooh was my very first boyfriend and Josh, here, read the entire first Winnie the Pooh book to my belly when I was pregnant with my eldest and that was the first movie that Oliver saw. Then we accidentally bought Sterling Holloway’s house and he was Winnie the Pooh (note: he was the voice actor), so that’s kind of a crazy story. So yeah, Pooh’s got a whole thing. There’s a whole three-line of Pooh in our lives.

Josh: Or we stalk him. (Audience laughs)

Moderator: How about you, David?

David: I am fond of Maleficent and the whole Sleeping Beauty thing.

Moderator: Eddy?

Eddy: I’m gonna go with Alice in Wonderland and just because I like it. (Audience laughs)

3. Back to the musical, even though the songs are new and original, do you take inspiration from the Disney characters the actors portray?

Adam: It’s more like we’ve taken inspiration from the way our actors have realized these characters on the show. You know, we use the disney movies and animated films as a jumping off point, but every one of them has made it their own. So when we started this process, they sat down with Alan and Michael and we really all tried to work together to tailor everything specifically to who these characters are on our show and those guys did an amazing job with the songs and these guys did alright singing them. (Audience laughs)

Eddy: The idea was each episode has the tone of the character so a Snow/Charming episode is different than a Rumple. I think Alan and Michael really captured kind of the character, they were fans of the show, and then the tone & inspiration for each one.

David: Also it was about returning to a S1 feel for all of these characters, which speaks to how we were introduced to them and what the actors brought to those characters, kinda going to really the heart of when we met them and putting it into song.

Moderator: Awesome. So deep. (Audience laughs)

4. For Josh & Ginny, if you could be any other character besides the one you play currently on OUAT, who would it be?

Josh: I’ve always said Rumplestiltskin for sure. Just because Bobby, the actor, gets to play such a huge range. I just think that would be a whole lot of fun.

Ginny: I would be Henry because I wouldn’t have to wear a wig and that would be the closest I would ever get to playing Harry Potter. (Audience laughs)

5. What’s your Disney favorite ride or attraction?

Ginny: Haunted Mansion.

Josh: Pirates.

Eddy: Pirates! Haunted Mansion too, it’s close.

Josh: I also like Indiana Jones.

Adam: It’s a tie between Pirates and Star Tours. There’s like 94 possibilities.

(Someone said Space Mountain - can’t tell who. Maybe David.)

Eddy: The Buena Vista Commissary. There’s a salad bar like right down Dopey Ave. (Audience laughs)

6. Which characters were the most exciting to create a song for?

Josh: (clears throat loudly) Answer honestly!

Alan & Michael (note: I can’t tell which is which): I mean, Zelena was… Yeah.

Josh: Alright, nice to see you (note: I assume he gets up halfway as a joke)

A&M: We had to test you there.

Eddy: It’s hard to say who.. It’s like your favorite child.

Ginny: Us obviously. (Audience laughs)

Eddy: I think, for us, it was really just exciting to do as many as we could. You know, I think we weren’t sure how many songs we could take on, we weren’t sure we could do any of it and, you know, literally these guys wrote 7 original songs and they started meeting in December so… if you have a birthday or anniversary coming up, Alan & Michael~

Moderator: Anything to add, David?

David: Nope. (Audience laughs)

It’s Quiet Uptown

So I want to talk about my favorite moment in Hamilton because I never have, and with the mixtape early singles, I’m now listening to the Kelly Clarkson version of this song and thinking about it again.

This is my favorite song for a lot of reasons, mainly because it has my favorite two lines in the entire show in it… “There’s a grace too powerful to name” and “Forgiveness, can you imagine?”

But here’s the deal. This entire show has been building to Alexander’s greatest foil- his ego and pride while he fights to advance and stay ahead… to the point that at his worst moment, he publishes a long essay detailing his affair to defend rumors that he mismanaged money… and is so fixated on protecting his name, that he literally doesn’t even stop to think about how this will effect Eliza, and his family. Angelica shows up and he actually thinks she’s there to defend him. 

And then you have his son, who loves his dad, idealizes his dad, wants to be just like his dad, and he goes out into the world, and defends his dad against people who are insulting him, to the point that he ends up in a duel to defend his dad’s name/honor. And Alexander LOANS HIM THE GUNS for the duel. He’s not like “you know what son, I don’t really deserve to have you defend me like this, they’re right, I screwed over your mom and my actions are not defendable.” He’s like, yeah, okay son, let me show you how to duel, here, take my guns, have fun!

And then Philip dies. And I don’t think it’s until that moment Alexander truly realizes what his selfish pride has done to his family. And you hear it in the lyrics, they retreat from public life, he starts going back to church and praying, he’s actually for the first time repentant. 

And then there’s this lovely song, where he finally apologizes to Eliza, admits that this is his fault, admits he doesn’t deserve her, states he’s willing to die if it could bring their son back. 

And since Burn, Alexander and Eliza haven’t touched, there is a clear coldness between the two, when she’s sobbing over Philip she won’t let him touch her to comfort her. 

And then on the line “They are standing in the garden, Alexander by Eliza’s side, she takes his hand.” And they’re center stage, and when Eliza takes hold of his hand, Alexander breaks down, he loses it, he is literally standing there sobbing on stage, head bowed, overcome with emotion, while my favorite line covers them “Forgiveness, can you imagine.

And for the first time I think Alexander finally realizes how much he doesn’t deserve this forgiveness. His pride literally killed his son, his son died defending his honor when it didn’t deserve to be defended, and here is his gracious and loving wife, who still forgives him, even though he doesn’t deserve it, they both know he doesn’t deserve it. 

That simple moment, Eliza reaching out and taking hold of his hand, Alexander sobbing when she does… that to me is the most beautiful, powerful, poignant moment of the entire show. It’s the moment that I’m going to remember 50 years from now as one of the most moving moments I’ve ever seen on stage.

The BMC songs from that musical ask??

I Love Play Rehearsal Are you/have you been in theater? If so what are your favorite experiences?

so I’ve been in 3 theater productions (the little mermaid as flotsam, bye bye birdie as ursula, and the bloody attack of the evil demonic giraffe puppet: the leprechauns strike back as a contestant and the librarian), and my favorite experience would have to be learning the lines for the librarian literally the day before we went up because our previous girl couldn’t make it

Two-Player Game Who is the one person that you know will always have your back and stick by your side when it matters most?

my best friend grace- she doesn’t go to my school or live near me, but she’s one person I can always count on to answer the phone. (i’m highkey in love with her, she’s my Amazing Grace *buh dum tss*)

The Pants Song Have you ever forgiven someone whose hurt you in order to help them/be there for them? Did they deserve to be forgiven?

this is a tough one. there was a point in time where I had thought a friend of mine had spread this shitty rumor about me, and then got dumped and came to me for comfort. I think I forgave her, just because it as too much work to be mad at her and comfort her. and i’m glad I did, because it wasn’t even her who had told the rumor.

anonymous asked:

So I think I'm going to get into BTOB??! I always enjoy the stuff you guys blog about them and they seem really cool ❤ do you have any song recs/ favorite eras from them? Any specific place I should start? Thanks for your time! LOVE YOUR BLOG ❤❤❤😍

Literally start anywhere in their discography. The upbeat songs they do usually get pretty popular, but they have some seriously good ballads because their vocal line goes in. 

My all time favorites are “Insane (Acoustic Ver.)” from their Complete album and “Wow” from their Press Play album.

Also thank you ^^

let’s talk about the music ➝ favorite unreleased song: over and over

this is one of 5sos’ saddest songs, in my opinion. they literally wrote ‘you make me feel alone’.  they sing it live so so so well and I’m such a sucker for slow songs. though we may never get the actual lyrics from a studio version, from what I gather these are my favorite lines:

So many times you say
You’re staying out tonight
I wish that I could just walk away
But I won’t leave you behind

Well I won’t be back no more
Just like I did before
Always thinking that it’s gonna be alright
I’m gonna start again 
This time I won’t pretend
That you’re coming back into my life 

anonymous asked:

does it ever scare you or freak you out that people have something permanently put on their body that you wrote??

idk, it used to really freak me out but now i don’t really care. i mean i made the decision a couple years back that i was going to try and make an actual living off my work, and if people getting flatsound tattoos and stuff are the result of that then bring it on. it’s mostly flattering, it’s just a little overwhelming sometimes. 

that being said, i really do encourage that people not treat listening to flatsound like some kind of fandom. more than anything, i don’t want to be someone that people idolize or romanticize. i don’t like when people draw me, send me that same drawing 50 different times on twitter, i finally favorite the post, they overreact and screenshot that i favorited it, they post that screenshot on instagram, then start tagging me in THAT post. it just makes me feel so weird. i feel like those people are missing the whole point of flatsound. 

shit, like half the time people ask me about tattoos they literally say “i want to get a flatsound tattoo but idk what to get….whats your favorite line?”. like what the fuck its going to be on your body literally forever who gives a shit what my favorite line is, what’s YOUR favorite line???

i know it probably sounds like i’m being mean or complaining about nothing here but this really is important to me. artists and online personalities who allow this type of shit are taking advantage of people for their own personal gain. i don’t want people to lose their sense of individuality just to benefit my career, i’m just trying to write some songs. 

but yeah, flatsound tattoos are neat. i’ve seen a lot of really beautiful ones.
