YOU GUYS I finally broke down and bought the thing I’ve been wanting for ages, ever since I found out it existed, and IT’S HERE: the 1997 Batman/Phantom of the Opera crossover titled Batman: Masque. I cannot WAIT to find out what new surprises lie in store. I will report back if anyone is interested.

And if you can’t read the speech bubble in the photo, it says, “Masks only cover the face…not the heart.” haaaa

deafhaenschen  asked:

Hey! Do you know the swedish and/or danish equivalent to the "Give me strength to try" line in WYWSHA? I wanna get it tattoed for my dead godfather and have a meeting with my tattoo artist to make a money plan for all of planned tattos and stuff and would need it but can't find the lyrics in the internet? :)

As far as I know there are three translations to go by: the original Stockholm lyrics (1989-95), the Copenhagen lyrics, and the Stockholm revival lyrics (2016-17). Here’s the respective versions, with English translations:

  • Copenhagen lyrics, by Karen Hoffman: Det vi har haft skal gi mig kraft (what we had shall empower me) at gå min egen vej (to find my own way).
  • Original Stockholm lyrics, by Lars Sjöberg: Hjälp mig bli fri, eller låt bli (Help me become free, or let be), låt mig forsöka själv (let me try myself)
  • Revival Stockholm lyrics, also by Lars Sjöberg: Hjälp mig bli fri från det som var vi (help me become free of what was we/us) låt mig forsöka själv (let me try myself)

The snag here is that the line in Swedish and Danish is rather dependent on the line before. The two lines must be sung together to make sense, or to complete the message. The English one, on the other hand, works fine alone. So make of it what you will, but AFAIK these are the translations available :)

My current situation
  • Me: I should be studying
  • My brain: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA IS HERE you are sunlight and I moon DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SING I want adventure in the great wide somewhere FIYEEEEEERO come with me and you'll be in a world of pure imagination I AM NOT THROWING AWAY MY SHOT it's the circle of life I CAN'T FIND USNAVI!
