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.
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.
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~
“E’ solo un'altra notte e sto fissando la luna. Ho visto una stella cadente ed ho pensato a te.. Ho cantato una ninna nanna in riva al fiume e sapevo che se tu fossi stata qui , l'avrei cantata a te. Tu sei dall'altra parte mentre l'orizzonte si divide in due, io sono lontano dal vederti.. Riesco a vedere le stelle, dall'America. Mi chiedo, non le vedi anche tu?”

Christopher Lee did much of the choreography for Count Dooku’s lightsaber fights, only using a stunt double for long shots. He was 79 when the iconic fight scene between Count Dooku and Yoda was filmed. In fact, he holds the world record for the most sword fights in a movie career.
so like 4 months after i graduated from college, maybe october 2012ish, some friends of mine threw a party. and i was there of course and the apartment was fucking packed, it was like a 2br 1bath place and there were easily 100 people in attendance. and the air is all hazy with pot smoke and i’m like rubbing molly into my gums and the bass is womp womp womping in the background and there are a solid 83 conversations
between a minimum of 3 drunk people
going on all at once, there are at least 2 pieces, a bong, and a blunt in circulation at the same time (to say nothing of the porch, idfk what they were doing out there), everyone is either yelling or too stoned to talk. and then “all star” by smash mouth comes on.
every. conversation. stops.
there is less than a breath of dead silence.
and then, in unison, each and every one of us starts singing along.
we’re looking at each other like what the fuck this is fucking eerie dude are you ok what is going on here, but none of us stop singing.
the people on the porch stick their heads in the kitchen door and go “oh my god what the fuck is happening man like jesus christ almighty” and shut the door again and roll another spliff or something. no one pauses for a single second.
so we’re still singing “all star.” all 94 of us. poised over our lines of adderall, fingertips coated in mdma, bongs between our knees, beers warming up in our hands.
hey now, you’re an all star, get your game on, go play hey now, you’re a rock star, get your show on, get paid
we got past the second refrain before anyone actually stopped singing and fired up their conversations again.
the only thing i can conclude from this is that “all star” by smash mouth is the single, unifying song of my generation. steve harwell is the voice of my people.
A team of astronomers, including a San Francisco State University researcher, has discovered a new planet orbiting a pair of stars, the 10th “circumbinary” planet discovered by NASA’s Kepler Mission and a milestone for the 6-year-old spacecraft.
The planet, known as Kepler-453b, is located within its host stars’ “habitable zone,” the area around the stars in which life could potentially exist. And the somewhat fortuitous nature of its discovery indicate there could be more like it than previously believed, according to Stephen Kane, an assistant professor of physics and astronomy at San Francisco State University and member of the team that made the discovery.
“If we had observed this planet earlier or later than we did, we would have seen nothing and assumed there was no planet there,” Kane said. “That suggests that there are a lot more of these kinds of planets than we are thinking, and we’re just looking at the wrong time.”
We’ve taken 10 of our top Instagram posts and put them here for your viewing pleasure. Now, your next 10 cell phone backgrounds can be found in one place.
10. Water on Mars
With 210,000 likes, this image is a favorite on Instagram. New findings from our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provide the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars. Dark, narrow streaks on Martian slopes such as these at Hale Crater are inferred to be formed by seasonal flow of water on contemporary Mars. The streaks are roughly the length of a football field.
9. Smoke Ring for a Halo
With 210,000 likes, this image shined on Instagram. Two stars shine through the center of a ring of cascading dust in this image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. The star system is named DI Cha, and while only two stars are apparent, it is actually a quadruple system containing two sets of binary stars. As this is a relatively young star system it is surrounded by dust.
8. Pluto’s Largest Moon, Charon
With 216,000 likes, a lot of people thought this image was interesting on Instagram. Our New Horizons spacecraft has returned the best color and the highest resolution images yet of Pluto’s largest moon, Charon - and these pictures show a surprisingly complex and violent history. This high-resolution enhanced color view of Charon was captured just before closest approach on July 14. The image combines blue, red and infrared images; the colors are processed to best highlight the variation of surface properties across Charon.
7. Veil Nebula
With 220,000 likes, many people favorited this imageon Instagram. This is the expanding remains of a massive star that exploded about 8,000 years ago. This view is a mosaic of six pictures from our Hubble Space Telescope of a small area roughly two light-years across, covering only a tiny fraction of the nebula’s vast structure. This close-up look unveils wisps of gas, which are all that remain of what was once a star 20 times more massive than our sun.
6. Messier 94 Galaxy
With 234,000 likes, this image is a favorite on Instagram. This image shows the galaxy Messier 94, which lies in the small northern constellation of the Hunting Dogs, about 16 million light-years away. Within the bright ring or starburst ring around Messier 94, new stars are forming at a high rate and many young, bright stars are present within it.
5. Solar ‘Pumpkin’
With 247,000 likes, many followers enjoyed this imageon Instagram. This photo was posted on Halloween and shows active regions on the sun combined to look something like a jack-o-lantern’s face. The image was captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory in October 2014, which watches the sun at all times from its orbit in space.
With 286,000 likes, this image dazzled many of you on Instagram. Peering deep into the Milky Way’s crowded central hub of stars, researchers using our Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered for the first time a population of ancient white dwarfs – smoldering remnants of once-vibrant stars that inhabited the core. Finding these relics at last can yield clues to how our galaxy was built, long before Earth and our sun formed. This image is a small section of Hubble’s view of the dense collection of stars crammed together in the galactic bulge.
2. Super Blood Moon
With 310,000 likes, this image was very popular on Instagram. It shows the Super Blood Moon behind the Washington Monument on Sunday, Sept. 27, in Washington, DC. The combination of a supermoon and total lunar eclipse last occurred in 1982 and will not happen again until 2033.
With 363,000 likes, this image is one of our most popular pictures on Instagram. The dwarf planet sent a love note back to Earth via our New Horizons spacecraft, which traveled more than 9 years and 3+ billion miles. This was the last and most detailed image of Pluto sent to Earth before the moment of closest approach, which was at 7:49 a.m. EDT Tuesday, July 14 - about 7,750 miles above the surface – roughly the same distance from New York to Mumbai, India - making it the first-ever space mission to explore a world so far from Earth.
