"Most of my photos are grounded in people, I look for the unguarded moment, the essential soul peeking out, experience etched on a person’s face." - Steve McCurry
courage-and-cheer asked: Courferre + One of them working in West End/Broadway
I wrote Broadway because I know more about it than the west end(and yet, I want to work on the west end more than broadway, oh well)(also sorry for the words that look like THis. I wrote the first half on a chromebook and it was dumb)
:D thanks for all the prompts
slowly getting to them between homework and stuff
WATCH THIS: Jamie Parker does the St. Crispins Day speech from Henry the V.
I got to see this production a couple years ago, with one crucial difference - it was raining that night, pissing wet London weather pouring down on the real groundlings, standing in front of the stage for 3 hours, wearing slickers (I had splurged for slightly better seats, I’m nobody’s idea of a hero). When Parker came down to do that last chunk (“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers / for he who sheds his blood with me shall be my brother, be he ne’er so vile*”) he did so at the lip of the stage, uncovered … getting soaked in the rain with all the groundlings. At the risk of sounding just too corny for you to keep reading, it was why we go to the theater at all. Dig in. And Happy Birthday Shakespeare.
*I’ve probably got a couple words wrong, but before you yell at me, I did it from memory.Exactly this! Thank you for sharing :)
Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
This is why this is important.
THANK YOU grantairenjolras FOR THAT LOVELY LONG FIC IT HAS MADE MY NIGHT IT IS LOVELY AND *sighs*
