Mic Check, Mic Check of the Day: “I Dreamed a Dream” in Gollum’s Voice
YouTuber Ijameswalters effectively channels the voice of Gollum in this cover rendition of the Les Misérables showtune “I Dreamed a Dream.”
I just. I just…
Okay, so, I just read Song of Achilles (as pictured). It was beautiful. It was amazing. It was heartbreaking.
For those of you who don’t know, it’s the story of Achilles and Patroclus, his best friend and lover, told from Patroclus’ point of view. It covers their childhood together up until the events of the Trojan war, as told in the Iliad.
AND YOU SHOULD ALL GO READ IT RIGHT NOW
Tumblr is full of weird negativity and tired inside jokes. I’m kinda done with it.
Gonna go try to do something creative/useful with my time instead.
We Didn’t Start the Fire - 50 Years of Fandom
password to watch: fandom!
IMPORTANT NOTE: I am neither Fiercynn nor Scribe - hence the link. I just felt it was entirely, entirely, completely necessary to share this with everyone, because this is one of the most amazing things that I have ever seen in my life. I just - fuck. I’m in tears as I type this, because this vid? Is not about a bunch of fandoms, it’s about what fandom is, it’s about a tradition that goes back a long, long time of people looking at stories and saying “here’s what I have to say about that,” and other people listening. Towards the end it gets into fandoms I know, fandoms I’m in or have been in, and that’s when I started crying, because - this is going to sound so ridiculous, but I can’t help it, because that was when I realized that I was part of it, this old often-problematic beautiful revolutionary thing. And then, the last few minutes, it gives us characters who tell stories in the stories (Becky Rosen!), it says yes, you, this is your story too. It’s two-thirty in the morning, I’m crying, and I may not be coherent but I have absolutely no regrets. Watch this.
You brought us back to life, Mary. You did something I thought no one could do.
I nearly scrolled past this, so glad I didn’t hahaha
There is nothing worse or more terrifying than an intellectually curious penis
