Devon and I are compiling evidence for a scientific theory that for now we’re going to call the
The More You Belt, The More You Melt theory
because seriously, we’re pretty sure that every time a person belts, *their face melts a little bit. For now I present the articles in question:
SJB - this woman pops out f’s in Get Out and Stay Out like it was as common as writting a grocery list and look at that slight jaw unhinging action
Marin Mazzie - literally always looks like she will eat the microphone, and the microphone would like it. The microphone would consider this an honorable way to die, as though travelling to Valhalla.
Lindsay Mendez - Queen of high school land indeed. I’m honestly shocked that her belt hasn’t caused an earthquake.
(for face melt comparison between regular belter and casual belter:
Donna Vivino - Shut Up, I know all of you have listened to her Fiyero riff at least 20 million times and then attempted it in the shower at least double that, but it will never work quite right because your jaw doesn’t unhinge the way hers does.
Idina Menzel - 90% positive that if I Urban Dictionary’d “Face Melt,” the result would just be Idina’s name written over and over ala The Shining.
Morgan James - Her twitter attitude towards Sondheim In The Park’s Into the Woods: disgusting. Her belting a G: completely revolting because I think a little of her face dripped off her skull.
Patina Miller - I do not recognize you sometimes because there is a huge cloud of fierce caused by sound waves that are literally changing your bone structure and I love you for it.
Patti Lupone - You’ve all seen her mouth do that thing. Seriously, you just flinched thinking about it. How does it do that? Her face melted in the goddamn middle of a song.
Jennifer Holliday - If you weren’t expecting this, shame on you. This is the greatest moment of face melting to have ever taken place in this world. and brings me to the asterisk from before:
*Sometimes the belt so strong, your own face melts a little too. This is Second-Hand Melt.
you know a place tumblr is too accepting when otherkin people start floating around and wanting acceptance like that’s a thing. ok yes i do not have a problem with that cis stuff, identifying with a different gender role, ok.
but i’m sorry, otherkin? no.. like you are not an animal in a person’s body just please stop while you’re ahead. you don’t have wings sprouting from your back or a tail popping out of your ass.
you are not a faerie you are not a wolf you are not a kitty cat you don’t have wings or a tail
