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 partimagekey 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.”

Ivor Novello.

With whom Sassoon had an affair in 1924.

(via larazontally)

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

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.

I think it’s very important that we all remember just how hilariously disco the Original French Concept orchestration is. I just imagine Enjolras singing this and groovily swaying his head and sexily smirking at the camera. And disco lights, obviously.

Because these two pictures needed to be added to this post at some time!

Oh god, this fan art. It’s perfect. Has anyone told Michel Sardou?

They’re so cute— and I really like the effect of the colored linework, especially on Joly! That bright green isn’t a color I’d expect for lines, but it works so well!
