I try not to post selfies too often bc it feels like… not really VC y’know? Like it doesn’t count as being on topic enough (it isn’t)(unless I was cosplaying a VC-verse character)(I don’t have the guts/skills for that), but it’s very heartwarming when ppl like you leave me nice messages like this, I do appreciate it ❤
before, so I’ll throw it out to my followers, has anyone seen this? Comment on this post if so. Hey, if I was a rock star, you better believe I would indulge myself in EVERY WAY HUMANLY POSSIBLE and you bet your a$$ that PLAYING A VAMPIRE IN MY OWN DAMNED MOVIE would be BUT ONE OF THE MANY MANY INDULGENCES.
Looks like it’s free on YT:
I skimmed the very lengthy description and hopped around the video. It doesn’t really seem like my kinda thing, tho, sorry :-
Hopefully in bumping it here I’ve interested ppl to watch it and get into it w/ you!
Update: Good comments on this post so far! Much appreciated, maybe you’ll change my mind about it…
^fanart by @garama, who must have seen it live or the video of it, and has drawn fanart based on the musical, so he must have liked it! This is one of my all-time fave fanarts of Nicki/Lestat ❤ i just want to buy a whole graphic novel in this beautiful heartfelt style is that so much to ask *cries*
Some ppl loved Lestat the Musical, and more power to them! I am jealous of them. IDK if you saw the SF version or NYC version, live or video of it, but I saw the NYC version live and I did not like it. I partially blame the NYC producers for that, bc they apparently stripped out alot of the flair and gay stuff, maybe they were afraid it was pushing the envelope too far? But isn’t that what theatre is supposed to do? *sigh*
Sadly, I mostly feel second-hand embarrassment for Lestat the Musical bc I made the mistake of inviting my cousin to go w/ me. She was not in the fandom, and she was uncomfortable the whole time *facepalm* Idk I thought she’d be into it, but the NYC version we saw was stripped so bare, and there was little to engage with. I can’t even listen to the soundtrack! It just brings me back to how disappointed I was in the bareness of the production, at the whole audience’s lack of enthusiasm… much cry, very sad.
So I have to be cautiously optimistic about the adaptation in the works and hope that they considered Lestat the Musical and can avoid its pitfalls.
Merci beaucoup! Never too late for birthday wishes ;D It was 3/16 but the confusion is my own frickin’ fault for letting many lovely messages get buried in my inbox, so I’m the tardy one, replying nearly 4 months late *gasp* *swats self w/ rolled-up magazine*
Omg, *facepalm* I knew this would come up at some point…
That is part of my blog layout revisions. There’s gonna be a BEAUTIFUL Navigation/Tags page, categorized by topic, w/ all the most popular tags bc as you may know I tend to add further commentary in the tags that probably wouldn’t be very useful in finding what you’re looking for.
What are you looking for? Then I can try to give you the tag(s) for it! You can also message me privately, if you prefer.
It was a Wednesday so it was necessary to celebrate on BOTH weekends before and after, bc, you know, I can’t possibly go to work and then have enough free time to celebrate my fabulous existence on a WEEK WEAK NIGHT.
And THANK U FOR YOUR LOYALTY you’ve been on board this crazy train since 8/30/15!
