THINGS MUST GET DONE TODAY!

Okay, I've been working productively for two hours, so now we're going to do a Twi-spam entry to get it all out of the way. Collapse )

From miss_eponine: Fifteen minutes of B-roll footage, and it is so amazing that I am putting the link outside a cut. That amazing. And it pretty much gives away the entire movie. If you like watching stunts and wires and green-screens (and I LIVE for this shit, seriously), you will love it. Also? Actors miming vampire baseball. GOLD.

Question

Hey, quick dumb question: does anyone have or know how to get the original French text of Phantom of the Opera ? (I mean, quickly, online, and/or free.) There's a line I'd like the original version of--it's translated in one of my editions as "A sort of bluey light surrounded us," and I would really, really like to know what the original wording was. It's from the book scene where Christine is describing the first time she saw the lake leading to the Phantom's lair.

ETA: YAY! Thanks, guys!

A very parenthetical mood

Aw! An anonymouse sent me virtual milk and cookies. And did I need them today. Today has not been a good day. Although y'all were a life-saver with my POTO question--what I wanted to do for the annotations was take my favorite chapter (the one where Christine sits Raoul down and tells him, in flashback, the scenes that basically make up "Phantom of the Opera" and "Music of the Night," but in a vastly different tone. In the book, it is blood-curdling) and footnote that as well. You know, as a bonus feature. And since the novel's in the public domain, I can legally do it. And I got all of that out of the way today, amazingly. So at least that was productive.

I'm kind of not having a very good day other than that, though. Like, nauseated with tension. That kind of thing.

By the way, yes, here is the Twilight Script reimagined from MSN. I love y'all, but please stop sending it to me. (I know, I know. I'm sorry. I'm just sick with anxiety, is all.)

(Yes, I saw 'Twilight' actor open to 'Doctor Who' role, which basically translates to, "Hey, you're British! Would you ever play the Doctor?" "I LOVE DOCTOR WHO!" Aw.)

(This is the best thing ever. Just watch it. "Are we still getting married this Friday?")

(Oh God, the seven-year-old girl story is so much more horrifying the way he tells it himself.)

(Ever wondered what "Run, Bella, Run (Stay, Bella, Stay)" would sound like? Now you know, courtesy of ftsor.)

HEY IN CASE YOU MISSED IT THERE IS A NEW WATCHMEN TRAILER, JUST SO YOU KNOW.
