New Turpin clip!

Burton should have put out some twisted advent calendar - I'm marking off days to Sweeney Todd.
(Thank the heavens for You Tube - I've been listening to the amazing George Hearn at work for months, now!)

mood: scared

I sit at my desk. I am working on paperwork, fussing with files, sporadically tippity-typing on this or that.

Whist humming.

Whilst humming ... Dies Irae. (Mozart, not Verdi, FWIW)

Ah, days of judgment, spreadsheets, and thou.

I should be committed.

Your mission, should you dare to accept it: go to the Sweeney Todd movie site. Click 'enter the site', you can hear snippets of the songs (if you click on 'audio' at the upper right corner you can arrow through them, pause, etc..).

Pretty Women ... is wonderful. It was one of my favorite songs from the production when I saw it lo those many (many, many - have I mentioned I'm old?) years ago, and hearing it again makes me smile. I can't wait for this movie - hell, I can't begin to accurately describe my insane anticipation. I have loved this show far, far too long for me to be sane about it!

And for your viewing pleasure, more Pretty Women:

Hearn as Sweeney (as he was when I saw it 25 years ago.)

In concert in 2001

And this is an interesting version - Hearn as Turpin, this time

Gods I love this show! (I won't even take a stab at what it says about me that I've been singing songs from the musical since I first saw it well over 15 years ago - stab, get it? Bwahaha)

Sweeney Todd trailer!

Oh, it'll be a Merry Christmas, indeed! I can't wait -- I have loved the musical for an age (although I can't recall whether I saw it at the Fisher Theatre or in Toronto...hmm...but I'm pretty certain it was the 1980 tour) but add the creeping darkness of Burton? Hellsyeah!

Do chocolate frogs dream of marshmallow sheep?

I suppose I should mention that if you let me know you would like to read my blather just respond and I'll add (a lot here is posted publically, a lot is not).
I mostly post in my lj, fairly tightly f-locked and usually contains a lot more than this journal (which I keep to stay in touch with my non-lj ij compadres), so let me know if you need adding there.
I'm the same name whether lj or ij. Same person, too - no multiple personalities or anything. :P

I'm mainly a polite, canon-and-grammar picky fic reader (never was before I discovered friends and colleagues who write - I've been corrupted).
Although I have certain people poking me to do more than that.
No breath-holding, y'hear?

Is it ok to be really weirded out that there is a webcomic with the same name (I can't say based on or even relating to, not without twitching) as the medieval magical text I've spent a great deal of time on over these many years?

I first saw The Four Yorkshiremen sketch when I rented Live At The Hollywood Bowl lo those many (many, many, as in mid-80s many) years ago, and since (success only recently, thank you YouTube!) have been able to find more of the same:
1967: Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graham Chapman, and Marty Feldman.
1979: Michael Palin, Rowan Atkinson, John Cleese, Terry Jones.
2001: Harry Enfield, Alan Rickman, Eddie Izzard, and Vic Reeves.
*warning: I laughed out loud at my desk at these. I don't mean I snickered, even chuckled - I broke out in loud peals...embarrassing guffaws complete with eyes tearing to be precise. This sketch slays me every damn time (not the least because it's eerily similar to comments by my grandfather when I was growing up - sprinkled liberally with smartassed Polish commentary, Jak siÄ™ masz). If you don't want your co-workers to look at you like you've gone 'round the bend -- watch them at home!*

I am full of squee!
