Hello there friends :)
Mia here! Unofficially a Disney princess but one day that will change. I like to blog about my life, figure skating, Disney, musicals, various TV shows and movies, and a whole bunch of other stuff! Gosh I hate writing these things...if there's anything else check the links or talk to me!!! (I pinky swear I don't bite)
Okay, so almost everyone knows Idina Menzel because of ‘Frozen’ or from her role as Elphaba in ‘Wicked’
Everyone, this is Kerry Ellis.
She’s a west end performer, who’s also played Elphaba in Wicked. This is a rendition of her singing ‘Defying Gravity’ produced by Mother.Fucking.Brian May.
Yes. Brian May from Queen.
I seriously recommend you watch it because it’s the Defying Gravity we all know and love, but with a rock sounding element similar to the sound of Queen.
woah, seriously seriously listen to this
A tour of the British Isles in accents: for those who would be tempted to mention “A British accent” and leave it at that.
…Smart to remember, too, that all these regions will have microregional variants. The Dublin accent referenced here, for example, is only one of at least five or six that I can identify, and I bet there are a lot more I’ve never heard or can’t tell from one another. Ditto for other regions in Ireland. The “Irish accent” as normally heard in US TV and film until quite recently has never been much more than an overstated, artficial “Dublin Stage” accent.
Equally, what most people in the US think of as “the British accent” beloved of movie villains everywhere is usually the so-called Received Pronunciation or RP, a kind of by-blow of the BBC’s refusal for a long time to allow its announcers to use anything but an approved version of the Home Counties “posh” accent. (This dialectic “glass wall” has finally started cracking in the last decade.)
Love how we currently have no power, but the internet still works.
How Frozen Should Have Ended.
I died at the end.
