But how does one become musical? This, my young friend, is like all things a gift; it consists chiefly of a fine ear and a quick conception, and it is left to us that they may be cultivated and enhanced. You will not come by it through long days as a hermit practicing mechanical studies, but rather by an extensive engagement [Verkehr] with the musical world, especially with the chorus and orchestra.

how to walk like a queen [x]

Okay so this shit is in my likes and it’s come across my dash a few times since but this is the first time I’ve seen it since the following happened to me:

One time I was in Manhattan and I had a lot of walking to do and I was bored and was thinking about this gifset and I thought, huh, lets try it. So I did and I was thinking queenly, murderous thoughts and trying to see if people were more willing to get out of my way when I walked like this and then, I watch a guy pass me, do a double take, then a triple take.

Then he engages me in polite conversation for a block or two, tells me I have beautiful hair, then asks me out of drinks. 

CHARLIZE THERON IS A SMART LADY BUT HER ADVICE IS POWERFUL. USE IT WISELY AND WITH CAUTION, MEN MIGHT START THROWING THEMSELVES AT YOU.

Also a lesson in opera. Any opera at any time. Opera.

"Haven’t they got any eyes? Have they forgotten what a star looks like?

Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard (Billy Wilder, 1950)

This film is still grotesquely, hauntingly, heart-breakingly beautiful. And yes, we have forgotten what a star looks like.

Les Beehive – The Phantom of the Opera (2004)

I saw this movie at least 3 times in the theater. I’m starting to feel shame.
