a piece of costuming I hadn’t noticed before! Veronica’s monocle from the movie!
Tumblrites, I give you Night Vale Bingo.
Next time you settle in to listen to an episode of Welcome to Night Vale, print out one of these cards and make a mark the first time Cecil mentions the person, place, or thing in a given square.
“I can tell you what’s not in the film is a blast. After we did six or seven takes, I said, ‘Cut, print. Got it. Thank you very much.’ They said, “No, we’d like to go one more time.’ So they started the scene. And they got right into the drama, coming closer and closer. And then tongues came out. And then they slapped up against the wall. She drove him up against the wall. Oh, it was fabulous. And they did it again, because the cameraman goofed.” - Rob Bowman about the hallway scene in the X Files: Fight The Future. (According to David and Gillian, they were just “playing around”).
Sometimes I think about how to explain this to someone outside the fandom. “Oh, that’s from the movie. Oh, well, but they don’t actually kiss in the movie. They almost kiss, but they don’t really. No, this wasn’t an outtake; they were never going to kiss. Yeah, they just, uh, decided to uh, kiss, I guess. Uh, I don’t know why. No, they definitely did it on purpose so it would be filmed. Yeah, they actually went out of frame one time so they did it another time so it would get on camera. No, no, it wasn’t in the script. No, it wasn’t an improv for the scene; it was never going to be in the movie. No, no, they’re not a couple. Yeah, he’d actually gotten married like, two weeks before or something. Actually, they weren’t even getting along that great at this time, I don’t think. In fact, uh, I think this period was just about the nadir of their relationship, actually, as far as I know. They just, uh, I don’t know. There’s a whole — How long do you have?”
Such ronds de jambe! Such temps de cuisse!
Come, we rehearse. Now!
every now and then a show comes along that doesn’t just change the playing field, but it kind of blows the whole stadium out. you start over, and you’re reinventing the game and how we watch it, and the players are totally different. their message is unique and daring and our impressions and the way we deal with them aren’t the same ever again.
well, this was one of those shows.
Crying… Every fucking time.
today was ‘classic movie’ day
the sound of music is a classic, right?
ALBUM: Mouth Silence
Neil Cicierega - Wndrwll
The best thing I’ve ever heard, that no one should ever listen to ever.
Alright, before you say, “Ugh, that piano’s horrendously out of tune!”….
Yeah, I know. It’s a 102-year-old Estey Upright (it was built in 1912). It’s still in it’s original state. The real ivory keys are chipped. Some of them don’t work anymore. And even parts of the mahogany exterior have been worn down.
But because it’s slightly out of tune and it’s really old (AKA it looks cool), I thought playing the Gravity Falls theme on it would add to the more haunting aspects of the melody.
If there’s enough demand, I can do another video of the theme on the piano in my bedroom (it’s newer and in tip-top shape).
But for now… GF theme on a 102-year-old piano it is. :D
(also, I’m a novice piano player, so be gentle with the critique)
