RWBY Characters + Their Voice Actors’ fitting Tweets Pt. 2 (I want you all to know I tried really hard to find a more out-of-context tweet for Sam Ireland, but she’s literally always like this. god bless)
Tipped as one of the favourites so far, Blanche is representing Belgium in Semi-Final 1 at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. This is almost certain to get through to the final, so we’ll skip to the good bit - the opinions.
Definitely in possession of one of the most unique voices of this year’s contest (conspiracy theories abound that her and Brendan of Ireland have switched voices), the song itself throws up a problem. Namely, how on earth is it going to be staged?
While nothing will ever match the spectacle that was Loic in 2015, it’ll take something special to jazz this one up a bit for the live performances.
Hail Caesar - Caesar and Me, The Twilight Zone, Season 5, Episode 8, 1964
Jonathan West, ventriloquist, a master of voice manipulation. A man late
of Ireland, with a talent for putting words into other people’s
mouths. In this case, the other person is a dummy, aptly named Caesar, a
small splinter with large ideas, a wooden tyrant with a mind and a
voice of his own, who is about to talk Jonathan West into the Twilight
A daughter of a King of Ireland, heard
A voice singing on a May Eve like this,
And followed half awake and half asleep,
Until she came into the Land of Faery,
Where nobody gets old and godly and grave,
Where nobody gets old and crafty and wise,
Where nobody gets old and bitter of tongue.
And she is still there, busied with a dance
Deep in the dewy shadow of a wood,
Or where stars walk upon a mountain-top
Isolde. William Gale (British, 1823-1909). Oil on canvas.
The legend of Tristan and Isolde (Tristram and Iseult) takes place during the Middle Ages, when knighthood and the chivalric code prevailed. On board ship from Ireland to Cornwall, a sailor’s voice resounds from the rigging. His song about an Irish girl annoys the fiery Isolde, who is being taken by Tristan as bride for his uncle, King Marke.
If you live in Ireland, please vote in favor of marriage equality. It was a huge freaking deal for me and my partner when our state legalized equal marriage, and I want my LGBTQ+ friends in Ireland to have that right, too.
