this whole musical is absolutely wonderful


Day 4! (4?) of @klapolloweek: Music!!

I love music. It’s been present my whole life, since I was very little (I was told I practically lived under my father’s piano while my mama sung on stage!!) Because of that (I think), I developed absolute pitch. And It’s been hell since then.

But it gives me a different perspective on people that sing. Like, when hearing a wonderful voice (or other sounds). I always cry whenever someone or something sounds so right, and beautiful…

Cue Klavier, a musician. Crying. Because Apollo’s singing voice it’s actually beautiful. And we all know why it could be. Besides, Klavier said in-game he did cry when hearing Lamiroir sing (I think). Soooo this was done. Progress gif included!

(This got too long oh god I’m sorry)

I thanked you for giving me some of the best days of my life yet to come, and I walked away. And as I heard the door closing behind me, I wanted to break down crying like never before. But I didn’t. Instead, I smiled at the elderly women at the train station, and I laughed at a little girl with eyes almost identical green to yours, wondering if our kids would have had eyes like that. Then I looked at the sky, and I told myself; it is not that bad. He is just a boy, and you’re just a girl, and the two of you are only children, stupidly in love with the idea of forever. And there’s more to life; like cheap wine and fancy hotels and incredible music and dancing in the pouring rain with the people you love most in this world. And I knew. With or without someone by my side, my life is going to be absolutely spectacular. And I won’t be sorry for closing that door, but you will. Oh, you will.

12, 14, 16 :P, 44,45, 47, 127,146, 149

12. What are your 5 favorite songs right now? 
Won’t be Pathetic Forever by The Wonder Years (honestly their whole body of work gives me life) 
Cold Missouri Waters by Cry, Cry, Cry (beautiful song ok let me live) 
Castling by The Narrative (definitely a depression song) 
I Exist I Exist I Exist by Flatsound (little bit of a depression song)
Royal Heart by Andrea Gibson (ok yes it’s a poem set to music but I listen to it absolutely all the time) 

14. Do you believe in luck and miracles? 
I believe that there is a larger force at work in the universe that we do not or maybe cannot understand. I don’t know if that counts as luck or miracles. 

16. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again? 
Feeling like I don’t have to answer that to you :3 

44. Trip to outer space or bottom of the ocean? 
Oh, bottom of the ocean, absolutely, 100%, not even a question. 

45. What makes you get out of bed in the morning? 
Honestly, there are days I only get out of bed because I have to and I absolutely wouldn’t otherwise. Mostly I get out of bed because I know that I have to keep moving forward and that’s the way to do it. 

47. Have you ever been high? 

127. What makes you happy? 
Lipsyncing to my favorite music while sitting on the swings at home, hanging out with the people I love and care about, singing at the top of my lungs with my mom either in the car or while we play cards in our kitchen 

146. Was today a good day? 
Today was a “I’ve been in the car for seven hours and my dad only let me have one cigarette” day. It wasn’t a bad day, though. It just wasn’t a great day. 

149. Do you believe in ghosts? 
Ummmmmmmmmmmm probably yeah. I believe in spirits and souls and whatnot. I believe something happens to us after we die, I’m just not entirely 100% on what I think that is, but I think there’s gotta be something. 

Ultimate Storytime

I’ve never addressed this before but I did go to Ultimate Storytime and IT WAS SO AMAZING!!! The whole show was outstanding and so well put together. The music was absolutely amazing and I could listen to it over and over again. It was honestly one of the best nights of my life. The whole cast was so sweet and It is definitely one moment I will cherish forever. Thank you for all who has worked so hard to make the show as wonderful as it was! I enjoyed it so much!!!!!

Kong: Skull Island (2017)

This film is a visual masterpiece that gives me hope for the future of the Kaiju expanded universe they’re trying to build with it. After 2014′s Godzilla I was expecting the worst for any future movies in the franchise but this one has me excited for the 2019 King of Monsters. It’s compelling, exciting and incredibly enjoyable. It makes up for it’s cliche characters and weak plotting by being absolutely beautiful. It’s action is sharp, visceral and brutal and the general look is stylised and gorgeous at times. 

The colouring of the film is incredible to look at in certain scenes, the reds are pulled up and it works perfectly. The directing and cinematography are both wonderful, the shot composition is on point and a lot of scenes have excellent motion and flow with great snappy focus pulling. The sound design and music are also perfectly done, supplementing the whole piece excellently. 

As I mentioned earlier, the characters are walking cliches yet the stellar casting sells it well enough. Tom Hiddleston is perfect in the role of dashing Englishman, Samuel L Jackson fits the crazed military role and Brie Larson while wasted in this film sells the token female role. The standout in the cast is John C Reilly who plays an eccentric castaway brilliantly, with both perfect comedic timing and some excellent more serious moments.  

This one hits a solid 8/10 for me, it’s definitely something worth going to see while it’s still on the big screen because i’m not sure it’d be quite as good without the cinema experience. 

Took a break from writing Hoofbeat and.. well, here’s a dabble of Hufflepuff Chloe being reduced to a garbled mess trying to ask out Gryffindor Beca

Chloe Beale has been infatuated with Beca Mitchell since her second year. Aubrey insists that the girl is nothing but absolute trouble. However Chloe just can’t shake her crush on the tiny brunette.

She supposes it started with the way Beca Mitchell pushes the boundaries with mixing muggle things into her wizarding life. For instance, the first day of musical studies, Beca suggested several muggle songs that would mix perfectly with Hogwarts traditional, definitely bland, songs. Unfortunately, much to the brunette’s dismay, the professor flicked his hand and dismissed the whole idea. But it isn’t just music that Beca brings from the muggle world, it’s those wonderful and intriguing ear pieces. The tiny brunette wears a dark colored spiral in one of her ears and Chloe can’t help but be slightly attracted by that. And don’t even get her started on Beca’s attitude; sarcastic quips and a general disinterest in things that makes Chloe smile.  

Perhaps it’s the way the girl is unintentionally clumsy. Chloe can recall their first year in flying class when the broom smacked the poor girl in the face. Or the time Beca locked herself out of the Gryffindor common room because she apparently rolled off a bunch of random words to the Fat Lady. It could be the time Beca blew up up her cauldron last year as well. No, the time Chloe heard Beca getting a howler during dinner earlier this year from her stepmother and falling off her seat is definitely her favorite.

“Chlo!” Aubrey hisses.

“What?” Chloe looks up from the candy in Honeydukes.

“Are you even listening?”

Chloe sighs, “Sorry Bree.” Although her sorry doesn’t last long when a certain brunette catches her attention.

“Chloe!” Aubrey hisses out again.

Chloe shakes her head and looks at the tall blonde, “Sorry.”

“Clearly you’re not. You’re practically drooling over that careless girl.”

Chloe slumps her shoulders, “I just can’t shake her Bree!”

“It’s our fifth year and you’ve been pining over this girl since second year. If you have such an interest in her Chloe you should talk to her.”

“I can’t!”

Aubrey gives her a look, “Chloe you have no problem talking to anyone.”

Chloe looks back at the candy, “But Bree,” she whines, “She’s so intimidating and hot. ”

Aubrey makes a grossed out face, “Intimidating and hot? That girl is clumsy and short, there’s nothing to be intimidated by. Besides, she’s not even that good looking.”

“She’s amazing Bree you don’t understand. Don’t forget I did try to ask her out and literally nothing came out but garbled words.” Chloe looks back at the Gryffindor. It’s true, Chloe did try to ask the brunette out and it didn’t go over that well, especially when that Stacie Conrad came to hang all over the Gryffindor.

Aubrey rolls her eyes and sighs, “Seriously if you’re going to keep drooling, I’m going to bring her over here. So go over there this instant.”

Chloe looks back at her best friend, “I thought you didn’t want me to involve myself with her.”

“Although I do find her ways with girls displeasing to the eye,” Chloe knows exactly what Aubrey is talking about. It’s not that Beca is a ladies-woman but she has been known to kiss girls in the middle of corridors and skip class to do whatever. “I don’t think I can stand watching you do this to yourself for another moment. So go!”

Chloe hesitantly walks over to the Gryffindor, “Hey, it’s Beca right?” Of course she’s right, she known this girl’s name and has since year one.

The small brunette looks up from the chocolate frog box, “Oh hey, um, yeah…”

Chloe smiles, “I’m Chloe Beale, Hufflepuff.”

Beca smirks, “Yeah I know we’ve had classes together since our first year. Also the uh, yellow scarf kind of gives it away.”

Chloe looks down at her scarf and then at Beca, smiling slightly, “Right I uh- I was- so…” Chloe lets out a huff when she can see an amused look on Beca’s face. Gosh dang it why can’t she just get it out? Seriously, conversation about music between the two is not a problem, asking her out is just impossible.

“You okay?” Beca asks.

Chloe just nods not trusting herself to speak again. She’s blown it, she knows she’s blown it. She was doing so well too and now, well now she’s garbled up her words yet again. “I was wondering…” Chloe bites her lip momentarily and she catches the brunette’s glance down at her lips. Okay so maybe she did that lip bite on purpose because hey, sometimes it works. “Did you uh- well wanna… you know that thing were two people hang out and- I don’t know what I’m saying.”

The Hufflepuff shakes her head and starts to walk away only to feel her hand being grabbed. She turns around to see the other girl grinning. Oh gosh that hand feels nice. It makes Chloe’s heart beat ten times faster when she feels Beca entwine their fingers.

“If you’re asking me out then my answer is yes.”

Chloe’s face lights up, “For serious?”

Beca offers a slight smile, “I think as you would say, totes. I mean we have been drooling over each other since fourth year. Or am I totally imagining being distracted by you during Potions?”

Chloe giggles, “Oh so that’s why you blew up your cauldron.”

Beca glances down before looking back at Chloe, “Perhaps…”

“So do you uh, well- do- err do you really mean you’re down for a date?”

Beca smirks, “You’re cute you know that?”

Now it’s Chloe’s turn to glance down at the floor, “You’re cheesey Beca Mitchell.”

That smirk still hasn’t left Beca’s face, “So let me know when you want that date yeah?”

As soon as Beca’s hand leave’s Chloe, she misses the contact. She watches at the Gryffindor walks out of the shop. She lets out and sigh not entirely believing that, that was a half successful ‘ask the Beca Mitchell on a date’.

“That was hard to watch Chlo’ you really need to work on your talking to Beca Mitchell skills.”

“Oh hush Bree.” Chloe says, looking at the blonde. “I have a date with Beca Mitchell.” Chloe says proudly.

“When?” Aubrey asks, walking out of Honeydukes with Chloe.

Chloe opens her mouth to answer but nothing comes out. Gosh darn she should’ve just told Beca she wanted that date as soon it works for the both of them. “Dang it.” Chloe mutters and she can hear Aubrey chuckling. “Oh hush.”

It’s 4AM… And this is not the kind of news I want to wake up to… I am in absolute shock and my heart is completely broken.

Christina… You are one of the most outstanding people to have ever lived. The first time I heard your music on YouTube, I fell in love with you and your voice. And then when you had the opportunity of a lifetime on The Voice, I was so excited for you.

You had your whole life ahead of you. A whole life of endless wonder, music, and joy and it’s so damn tragic that it all ended so quickly for you.

Rest In Peace, Christina. You are gone way too soon but I know you’re in a better place- and defiantly gracing Heaven with your singing. They have defiantly gained a new Angel.

My thoughts and prayers for Christina’s family, friends, and most of all, her fans.
