Lin-Manuel Miranda Says So Much More Than ‘Thank You’ During His Acceptance Speeches

History has its eyes on Lin-Manuel Miranda, and he constantly delivers.

The “Hamilton” creator is known to win things ― he nearly MacPEGOT’d at the Oscars this year (but lost Best Original Song to “City of Stars” from “La La Land”) ― and his victory speeches are nothing but net.

Never one to shy away from making a statement, Miranda has addressed everything from love and immigration to “senseless acts of tragedy” as he rapped or sonneted his way through a moment.

Now, the lyricist, composer and playwright is taking part in the Facebook telethon Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU to raise money for the American Civil Liberties Union on Friday, March 31. The event will stream live on The Huffington Post and Funny or Die Facebook pages, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.


Miraculous Ladybug Theme - FRENCH Full
Miraculous Ladybug Theme - FRENCH Full

This is a long ass rant about how much I fucking love this song and if you are into Miraculous as much as I am, you will agree with every point I make here.

So ever since I heard the dual version of the French and English one together, I’ve been hyperventilating. I am so much in love with the French version that I just don’t even. Like, nothing against the English dubbing, but there’s something SO SEXY AND SO SINFUL ABOUT THIS SONG IN FRENCH. LIKE WHAT THE FUCK MAN.

So, she starts off the song that’s all, OH I’M JUST AN ORDINARY GIRL NAMED MARINETTE - I HAVE NO OBVIOUS SIGNS OF BEING THE MOST BADASS HEROINE IN THE HISTORY OF ALL FRENCH, KOREAN, AMERICAN, WHATSOEVER LIFE. But then she’s Ladybug and she’s so beautiful and wonderful and sassy and confident and not like any other girl - she’s just so damn badass it makes me want to punch myself in the face she’s awesome. Like I want to be like her, but I have no coordination left in me to do all her acrobats.

AND THEN SHE’S ALL, OH CHAT NOIR IS NO ANGEL. As Adrien, he is totally an angel that I want to squish. AND SHE SAYS HE’S IN HER HEART??????? MY GOD. BUT AS CHAT NOIR? OH HELL NAW. Like, he is the most sinful thing ever with his innuendos and his puns and his flirting and his winking and his mrawrs and smirks. MY GOD. I just want to eat him up. But I ship him so hard with Ladybug/Marinette and they are most least problematic ship in the world in the fact that THERE IS NO ONE ELSE. NO ONE. IT’S JUST THEM IN A LOVE SQUARE AND THAT IS SO DAMN REFRESHING TO ME.

Then you get to Chat Noir’s part and I don’t know why, but the voice for him in this song is so hot and so yummy and I just wanna curl up and suffocate on my lust for this voice. Especially when he’s all “I’m Chat Noir” with that French SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAT NOERRRRRRRRRRRR. And he’s all, I’m no bad cat - I fight for the good like YOU DO, LADYBUG. AND THAT HE WILL FIGHT DESPERATELY??!!?! YAS. AND THEN HE’S ALL IM SCARED TO LOVE IN VAIN BECAUSE THE ONE HE LOVES CAN’T LOVE HIM BECAUSE SHE HAS TO BE LADYBUG AND CARRY OUT HER DESTINY. Why you gotta make me hurt in all the ways, FRENCH THEME SONG? PLUS, at the END OF CHAT’S PART, he’s all RAWRING and then belting OUT THESE AMAZING TOP 40s R&B “MIRAAACUUULOUS” notes like it’s some power ballad. LIKE WHAT THE HELL.

I’ve listened to this song like 15 times while I’ve written this out and I would also like to point out that the person who sings Marinette’s part is so fresh - like her voice could make the world better if she sang everything. ESPECIALLY ALL THE ‘ah ah ah’s. Like come on. COUPLED WITH THE GUY’S “OOOOOOOOOOOOH”s and “OOOOH, LADYBUUUUUUUUUG”s.

-chokes- I’m done.


10 Days of Anime Openings by Hanakumamii
Day 4: Opening with lively theme
ONE PIECE  [ Kaze o Sagashite || Yaguchi Mari & Straw Hats ]

ok! so!

like many of you i have been LOVING yuri on ice, it is a joy to the senses as well as the feels, and one of the few consistent bright spots of the last two weeks.

and so today i was listening to the full version of the op history makers by the wonderful dean fujioka (that i actually went and bought the full version off itunes, i love it that much i need it with me always) and, sorry if someone has already talked about this before, but i have come to the conclusion that the song, though sung as a solo by dean, is actually a duet between yuri and viktor, and that just makes me love it even more.

like, let’s take a look at the lyrics. We start off in first person with:

Can you hear my heartbeat?

Tired of feeling never enough

I close my eyes and tell myself that my dreams will come true

Originally posted by keigoo

and that is so clearly yuri at the start of the show. He feels like a failure, like he’s missed his chance, but in his heart he’s still not ready to give up on his dreams of being a winning skater.

Then we get the second verse, switching to second person:

there’ll be no more darkness

when you believe in yourself you are unstoppable

where your destiny lies, dancing on the blades,

you set my heart on fire

Originally posted by tch

and like, that is viktor, entranced by yuri and his skating from the youtube video onwards, seduced by him more and more with each performance as yuri grows as a skater. He believes in yuri and wants yuri to believe in himself (though he isn’t always the best at understanding how to help yuri do that :p)

and then we get the chorus, the two of them together, first person plural

don’t stop us now, the moment of truth

we were born to make history

we’ll make it happen, we’ll turn it around

yes, we were born to make history

Originally posted by theanimegoddess

this is them coming together, as skater and coach, as partners, as lovers. this is them as a united front looking to the future together.

and though the second half of the song is pretty much a repeat of the first, there is some important changes in yuri’s verse

Can you hear my heartbeat?

I’ve got a feeling it’s never too late

I close my eyes and see myself how my dreams will come true

Originally posted by dazaiosamu

and this change is markedly more positive than the first, he’s not feeling tired and down anymore, he’s inspired to move forward. And he’s no longer just telling himself ‘my dreams can come true’, he’s able to visualize it.

because he and viktor are together now, viktor has heard yuri’s heartbeat, and it has set viktor’s on fire.

Originally posted by nikiphorov

and that is why thinking this song is a duet somehow makes it EVEN BETTER IN CONTEXT FOR ME.

and out of context it is still an incredibly beautiful and positive song about having dreams and faith in yourself along with the will to move forward, BUT WHEN CONNECTED TO THE SHOW, yeah :)

Making Out With History

Much More Fun

So this is for the wonderfully amazing @atc74 1k challenge! She hit 1k and deserves every single one of the followers she is truly amazing and I LOVE her stuff! 

Anywho My song prompt was from the phenomenal Billy Joel, “I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.The sinners are much more fun.”

I tried something new with this one and branched away from Dean and Sam, thank you so much to @death2thevirgin for being my beta for this! Please feedback would be greatly appreciated! Let me know what ya think!

You were the youngest angel in the history of the Heavens to sit on The Counsel. You had aspired to be here and you would do your father proud. You had been hand picked, your age being ignored to a point, due to your innate sense of justice. Some of the others strongly disagreed with the decision to bring you in, however you would do your duty and you would do it well. You after all, were the Hand of Justice.

Do you know what I think of history? …for a while I thought history was something that bitter old men wrote. But Jack loved history so… no one’ll ever know everything about Jack. But…history made Jack what he was…this lonely, little sick boy…scarlet fever…this little boy sick so much of the time, reading in bed, reading history…reading the Knights of the Round Table…and he just liked that last song. Then I thought, for Jack history was full of heroes. And if it made him this way, if it made him see the heroes, maybe other little boys will see. Men are such a combination of good and bad…he was such a simple man. But he was so complex, too. Jack had this hero idea of history, the idealistic view, but then he had that other side, the pragmatic side…his friends were all his old friends; he loved his Irish Mafia.” - Jacqueline Kennedy


“Come Together” from The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil is a highly charged human kaleidoscope of movement. Where free love and rebellion dance together to create a fantastic new mantra. 

Enjoy the video!

I’m not freestyling, I’m too old. I wrote you a sonnet instead. My wife’s the reason anything gets done. She nudges me towards promise by degrees. She is a perfect symphony of one, our son is her most beautiful reprise. We chase the melodies that seem to find us until they’re finished songs and start to play. When senseless acts of tragedy remind us that nothing here is promised, not one day, this show is proof that history remembers. We live through times when hate and fear seem stronger. We rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer. And love is love is love is love is love is love is love and love cannot be killed or swept aside. I sing Vanessa’s symphony, Eliza tells her story, now fill the world with music, love, and pride. Thank you so much for this.

  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means: why does everyone say Burn is one of the least interesting songs in Hamilton? It's been months but I'm still not over when Eliza says "I'm erasing myself from the narrative" because it takes Eliza's silence in the historical record and turns it from being something passive to something active. Throughout the show the Schuyler sisters are used to explore broader concepts of feminine power and powerlessness in a historical context, and Burn is the pinnacle of that. History as we are taught it is a predominantly male perspective and we will never know so much about the women of history because their narratives have been removed, forgotten, and actively silenced. But with one line, Eliza claims that silence and makes it her own because it is the only thing she has control of in her situation like how can you say that's weak

Last Movie I Watched: Hidden Figures

Top 3 TV Shows: I don’t watch much TV, so I had to think back hard on this one. I tend to like most historical dramas, especially those on Chinese history, they’re so opulent! My favorite is The Legend of Zhen Huan. Its sort-of not-really sequel, Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace, seems very promising and I think once it airs it’ll certainly top my list. I also adored Pushing Daisies. And I do enjoy Doctor Who, though I watch it in bits.

Top 3 Characters: 1) My number one favorite character is forever Luffy from One Piece. I can’t say that I’ve not outgrown my ardor for the series but I’ll always love my darling rubber boy. 2) Bayonetta. Fabulous witch senpai, please step on me with your heels. Seriously though, she was such an inspiration to me. My graduation thesis was on her. 3) Of course, I can’t leave out someone from Hellsing, but it’s a tough choice between Integra and Seras. I’ll say it’s a tie, I love them both so much. Obviously.

Top 3 Ships: 1) To no one’s surprise, Alucard x Integra from Hellsing. 2) Bayonetta x Jeanne. 3) Wait, what was my third? Well I guess the only ships I actually currently give a shit about are those two. I have a soft spot for Luffy x Nami, but it’s not exactly an “otp” since I’d rather have no romance in One Piece. Sometimes I have intense Integra x Seras feels that go beyond my usual motherly/sisterly headcanons. But that’s a story for another time.

haggar, about to read shiro’s mind: let’s unlock the secrets of this earthling’s mind…
*begins reading his mind*

i remember seeing a post (i can’t find it now, sorry) about how satisfied should be from laurens’s perspective so it could discuss the writing out of queer ppl from our history. i didn’t want to lose the parts about angelica’s relationship with her sister, but i also wanted to incorporate john into the song since his real life correspondence with hamilton is so much more suggestive than angelica’s, so i adapted it to be a duet between them. 

i was thinking this way it could still maintain angelica wanting to make her sister happy, but also incorporate john’s relationship with alexander. i didn’t actually change any of the lyrics, just changed who would sing what and added one line for laurens that’s adapted from angelica’s line to be sung together.

I remember that night, I just might regret that night for the rest of my days.

ANGELICA: I remember those soldier boys tripping over themselves to win our praise.

JOHN: I remember that dreamlike candlelight like a dream that you can’t quite place,

JOHN & ANGELICA: but Alexander, I’ll never forget the first time I saw your face.
I have never been the same, Intelligent eyes in a hunger-pang frame,
And when you said “Hi,” I forgot my dang name, set my heart aflame, ev’ry part aflame,
This is not a game…
You strike me as a woman who has never been satisfied.
I’m sure I don’t know what you mean. You forget yourself.
You’re like me. I’m never satisfied.
JOHN (aside):
Is that right?
I have never been satisfied.
My name is Angelica Schuyler.
Alexander Hamilton.
Where’s your fam’ly from?
Unimportant. There’s a million things I haven’t done but just you wait, just you wait…
So so so— so this is what it feels like to match wits with someone at your level!

JOHN: What the hell is the catch? 

JOHN & ANGELICA:It’s the feeling of freedom, of seein’ the light,
it’s Ben Franklin with a key and a kite! You see it, right? 

ANGELICA: The conversation lasted two minutes,
maybe three minutes, ev’rything we said in total agreement, it’s a dream and it’s a bit of a dance,

JOHN: a bit of a posture, it’s a bit of a stance. 

ANGELICA:He’s a bit of a flirt, but I’m ‘a give it a chance.
I asked about his fam’ly, did you see his answer? His hands started fidgeting, he looked askance?
He’s penniless, he’s flying by the seat of his pants.

JOHN & ANGELICA: Handsome, boy, does he know it! Peach fuzz, and he can’t even grow it!
I wanna take him far away from this place, 

ANGELICA: then I turn and see my sister’s face and she is…
And I know she is…
And her eyes are just…
And I realize
Three fundamental truths at the exact same time…
Where are you taking me?
I’m about to change your life.
Then by all means, lead the way.
Number one!
I’m a girl in a world in which my only job is to marry rich.
My father has no sons so I’m the one who has to social climb for one,
JOHN (with Angelica): My father’s eldest son so I’m the one who has to social climb for us

JOHN & ANGELICA: so I’m the oldest and the wittiest and the gossip in New York City is insidious,
Alexander is penniless, Ha! That doesn’t mean I want him any less.
Elizabeth Schuyler. It’s a pleasure to meet you.
My sister.
Number two!
He’s after me cuz I’m a Schuyler sister. 

JOHN: That elevates his status, 

JOHN & ANGELICA: I’d have to be naïve to set that aside, 

ANGELICA: maybe that is why I introduce him to Eliza, now that’s his bride.
Nice going, Angelica, he was right, 

JOHN & ANGELICA: You will never be satisfied.

Thank you for all your service.
If it takes fighting a war for us to meet, it will have been worth it.
I’ll leave you to it.
Number three!
I know my sister like I know my own mind, you will never find anyone as trusting or as kind.
If I tell her that I love him she’d be silently resigned, he’d be mine. She would say, “I’m fine”
She’d be lying.
But when I fantasize at night it’s Alexander’s eyes,
as I romanticize what might have been if I hadn’t sized him up so quickly.

ANGELICA: At least my dear Eliza’s his wife; 

JOHN: at least I keep his eyes in my life…
To the groom! To the groom! To the groom!
