Whenever I hear people say that classical music is boring I just want to remind them that Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture called for a cannon to be fired a total of 16 times.

that’s not even the best partkey terms include:
- “balance your chair on two legs”
- "continue swimming motion"
- "insert peanuts"
- "play ball!"
- "release the penguins"
- "gradually become agitated"
- "light explosives now….. and….. ….. now."
"Someday I will kill the man who wrote keep the home fires burning—they play it in the hottest weather, too."
Siegfried Sassoon in a letter to musicologist Edward Dent, 1915 (via larazontally)
Remember when I blogged this? So I just found out who wrote “Keep the Homes Fires Burning.”
With whom Sassoon had an affair in 1924.
I’d say Sassoon clearly can’t hold a grudge, but the first time he met Ivor Novello he DID flat-out ignore him in petty spite because he hated that song so much. Clearly he got over it though.
Sassoon was always such a bitchy little drama queen, it’s why he’s one of my problematic faves
So, London Les Mis is at it with the attractive Grantaires again, I see.
