I just have to state. Officially. On the record and all that.


Mainly because I think I haven't actually said before, except for some EXTREME TWITTER CAPSLOCKING.



If those of you what read comics are not reading the The Last Unicorn adaptation? WHAT IS ACTUALLY WRONG WITH YOU?



I am generally supremely harsh on the adaptations of things that I love, okay. I think this has been pretty well established by now. And this book-to-movie-to-comic? SO FUCKING GOOD OMG. They nail the atmosphere, the right pieces of the language, and the art? Absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous. From the character design to the page layouts to the depth of the coloring, it's unfuckingbelievable.

(Though I will say, if I had one complaint, it is that the artist has made Molly and Schmendrick possibly too pretty. But then that is such a minor quibble. Such a chore to complain about that.)



No, bu seriously. If you love joy? And things that are awesome and also rule? You should read this. I want it to never ever stop. It had the power to bring me to tears over a scene I have experienced countless times, over and over, and it still got me there. It is simply beautiful in every way that a thing can be beautiful. Read it. READ IT.





dangit i have got to make some icons
attilatehbun: ([oooloooloooloool])

THINGS FROM THIS WEEKEND;

For his birthday, the SO's parents gave him tickets to this one concert. We didn't pay too much attention to it, exactly, and we put it on the back burner of our brains. Then, about a week ago, the SO remembered that it was coming up, and we mostly went uuuuuurgh because it was the same day as Baltimore Comic Con, but it was a Wynton Marsalis thing, and they were really good seats, and it promised to be fun no matter what. Also, culture.

What it was?

FREAKING AMAZEBALLS


Hold up, I gotta explain this.

Basically, and I don't know the whole thing, Wynton Marsalis and Cecile Licad and some other folks got together and made this incredible movie about Louis Armstrong as a kid.

It is a silent movie.
With a live jazz band.


;ALSIDYA;LIERJQ'LK3NRQ'ASD9GUA'SLITEUYRA'LI

Watching it all come together was un-fucking-believable. The music was unreal. The movie was hilarious and the actors, all of them, really got into the whole shtick/pantomime aspect of it and pulled it off phenomenally. The kid who played Louis was so freaking adorable I WANTED TO SMUSH HIS FACE awww.

(it also made me miss performing, but that is a whole nother story)

One of the most ♥__♥ things? I was instantly in costume!porn heaven. It's set in New Orleans in 1907, so it was the best kind of assault of high button boots! corsets! waistcoats! muttonchops! bowlers! SO MANY RUFFLES! omg it was amazing. I legit wanted to like, dive into the screen and start stealing people's clothes right off.

Here is a trailer that will not embed :(
Trailer


ANYWAY, I really really recommend going to see it if it comes around where you are. HERE is a list of the tour dates. I'm thinking I might try going again, if I can. Though admittedly, I am going to see how much the cheap seats are this time APPARENTLY IT'S VERY LIMITED ;; (here also is the blurb from his website)

I really really hope they put out some sort of DVD package for this, though it won't be quite the same experience. I JUST NEED TO HAVE IT AGAIN IN MY LIFE. However! There is going to be another one it looks like, called Bolden!, about the Coronet King of New Orleans, Buddy Bolden. So I'm going to make sure I get tickets to that one next year. Omg.


ETA: CHECK IT
attilatehbun: ([so excite i am a cat])
I AM PRETTY SURE SKATING FANDOM HAS KIND OF TAKEN OVER MY BRAIN




i don't know if i'm okay with that. i do know that florent amodio is going to make me explode soon as;ldigya;sdkn sob




h-halp
attilatehbun: ([you are not that badass])
I was just flipping through some old back entries and I realized.


It has been just over a year since I "officially" joined YA fandom. I missed the actual day because it is not like I actually pay attention to these things except on accident, but I stopped lurking (read: actually contributed something) one year + three days ago. So after I stopped going o__O, I thought about it a bit. I remember being all tiny and nervous and afraid, because I jumped out all alone and I am not very good at that.


♥ But it turned out to be one of the best things I ever did. ♥




I am just. So. So HAPPY that I joined this fandom. I have had so much joy. I can't believe how lucky I've been to meet such an amazing and wonderful group of people. Such a little comic, one I very nearly did not read at all, has allowed me access to so much fun and enjoyment, I just. I wouldn't trade it or this fandom or any of you for anything.

I know I am often times a big downer, but my general level of love has never wavered, and has instead gotten bigger and blinkier as time has gone on.
And.

Just.




Thank you guys for making what could have been sucky and lonely and a little heartbreaking into one of the best fandom experiences I have ever had. ILU GUYS.




/cuddles this fandom forever





re:yesterday's post. work jumped up to bite me in the face almost immediately after i made that post so i had to put it on the back burner but i'm moving it back up front today to see if anything boils. :D
