Literally one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever watched. 

New York City Ballet presents New Beginnings; September 12, 2013. 

Filmed at sunrise on the 57th floor of 4 World Trade Center in lower Manhattan, this short film captures an extraordinary and moving performance by principal dancers Maria Kowroski and Ask la Cour of Christopher Wheeldon’s “After the Rain” set to “Spiegel Im Spiegel” by Arvo Part. It is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and a tribute to the future of the city that New York City Ballet calls home.

a list of things i did in 2013 that i wish i hadn’t:

  • watched sons of anarchy
  • watched s6 of soa
  • watched the s6 finale of sons of anarchy
  • watched sons of anarchy s6e13
  • watched the episode of sons of anarchy titled ‘a mother’s work’
Youtube: Before/After

I’ve been watching Youtube for over 2 years now, I’ve seen some youtubers growing up through the years and I noticed something. 

The first youtubers I’ve ever watched was Smosh, don’t ask me how or why, I have no clue. Later, I discovered that “youtuber” was a thing. I started watching youtube in 2013, everyone looked like they really loved what they were doing and had this true, honest and real connection with us. The last couple of months I decided to stop watching some of them.

Now, I feel like some youtubers make content mostly for money, we all noticed that. Most of the youtubers use BIG titles and thumbnails that make us wanna watch the video, which is fine, but there is a line to not cross. I saw some youtubers uploading because they “had” to, and we feel it as a viewer when they don’t especially wanna make this video. Things shouldn’t be like that. Youtube should be a space to make/watch what we love and share content that make the creator and the viewers both happy. 

Also, they got so many opportunities that they can’t say no. Imagine, if a big company comes up to you with a big amount of money and ask you to make an album, you can’t sing. What would you do ? It’s very tempting right? If you say yes, you get more “famous” and get more money. If you say no, you don’t evolve in anything, don’t get to try new things and let people that always wanted to sing take your chance. 

I see things this way, maybe not everyone do but I wanted to share my point of view. 

anonymous asked:

I'm curious; you've watched the 2013 broadway production, right? what did you think of it?

I’ve only watched a few scenes because I dislike Orlando Bloom’s Romeo and I really can’t enjoy the story if Romeo’s character is not that dreamy, enthusiastic, innocent boy he is in Leonard Whiting’s or Richard Madden’s versions. Orlando is so emotionless, so unconcerned. His posture all along denotes such passivity it upsets me. I want Romeo to run around the stage and scream and tremble with excitement, but Orlando is just so inert.

From what I’ve seen, Juliet is better. Determined and lively. I remember when she enters the scene in 2.6 she rushes in Romeo’s arms and fills him with kisses, then she turns around to indifferently greet Friar Lawrence, and then she quickly goes back to kiss Romeo again lol. It was adorable.

But what I really liked about this production was Christian Camargo’s Mercutio. He did a good job giving some graphic explanations of his own sexual innuendoes lol. For example, he, Benvolio, and Romeo lie together on the floor when he tells Romeo, “Now art thou what thou art by art as well as by nature” and Mercutio is literally on Benvolio as he mimics the sexual act, and then the Nurse enters the scene and she finds them like that lol. It was crazy, and I would say that’s one of the best words to describe Mercutio.

I also loved his duel with Tybalt. “Here’s my fiddlestick, here’s that shall make you dance,” he says as he unbuttons his pants. “Men’s eyes were made to look, and let them gaze,” he says as he points at his pants again??!?!! THE TYCUTIO FEELINGS. He even kisses Tybalt on the cheek in the middle of the fight.

But that’s all I can say about this production, sadly. As I said, I’ve only watched a few scenes because I can’t put up with this Romeo.
