Do not let anyone say that Patrick Stump or Fall Out Boy as a whole does not have dedication or believe in what they’re doing. Because they’re fucking wrong. Let me tell you why: this performance they did for Jimmy Kimmel. Patrick Stump is nothing less than one of the world’s top notch voices. If you don’t believe me then you can fight me, believe me I’ll beat your ass to the ground - I maybe short but I’ve got the heart and soul to do so; if there’s a will there’s a way. Back to the point at hand, the band could have easily cancelled this performance given the circumstances of Patrick being sick with strep throat. I mean they can’t perform without their singer. HE HAD STREP THROAT AND STILL PERFORMED. Nonetheless consented to WEARING A SKIN TIGHT BODY SUIT when he could probably hardly breathe without it on in the first place. His throat was probably on fire the whole time and probably could hardly swallow or breathe, you can hear him lose his voice and try to catch his breath in a couple of places during the song. THAT TAKES FUCKING DEDICATION NUMERO UNO. AND SOUNDING AS GOOD AS HE DID BATTLING ALL THESE FACTORS, sure it wasn’t perfect, but hell of an effort and all the kudos goes to that tiny man with a trilby and soul voice for being such a trooper. He was more than likely dying after this performance, and like had someone holding tea for him right after he was done. Not to mention sacrificed his whole voice that day (at least) for that song. If that isn’t dedication, then dedication is dead and buried in some unmarked grave.
I think we ought to give kudos to Pete for how much quality time he spends with his sons. Almost every day on Snapchat when he’s not on tour, they’re either out hiking (which they seem to do regularly) or today launching a model rocket in a field. Or Pete is in the car selfie-ing…while waiting to pick up Bronx from school. I think that goes for all the guys, especially on their days off tour when they’re home for large chunks of time, such as now, they’re the Mr. Moms of the house. Remember that interview when Patrick says, “I spend most of my day cleaning up after my son and my dogs”? That’s just what every day is like for them. It’s better than leaving your kid so you can party and get paparazzi attention. I love how these guys are such normal people. I think that deserves appreciation. 👏👏👏
one of the things i really appreciate about the new series of asoue is the quality of neil patrick harris’ acting.
neil is an excellent olaf, in my opinion, with a great balance of the hammy humour that is integral to the character and genuinely scary moments. one of the things i appreciated was the reveal of his plot to marry violet. unlike the film, i really felt that the realization that violet has in the book during this scene (that he isn’t just a drunken brute, he’s a clever drunken brute) was translated well onto the screen. but, more than being a good olaf, he also manages to give each of olaf’s disguises a personality of their own, while never losing the base olaf personality behind them.
he does more than just putting on different voices - he switches back and forth between the character of olaf and the secondary character he’s playing, and constantly has to remember everything about olaf’s character while he’s covering it up, and remember to let some of that show through.
i don’t know how to express this properly, but this reminds me a lot of helena bonham carter pretending to be hermione disguised as bellatrix. i think it’s outrageously clever to get this right, and definitely something that was improved on from the 2004 movie in my view. i felt that jim carrey went a little too deep into each of olaf’s characters, losing much of the base, but nph has got it just right - he’s still olaf, a character who is a poor actor acting another character.
