Marilyn Horne on Starting Out as a Soprano

Marilyn Horne:

I think I began as a soprano because I began so damn young! Who's got any chest voice at five years of age?!

Luciano Pavarotti:

Who's got any /chest/ at five years of age?

Joan Sutherland:

*No, Luciano. That's another thing.*

Speedo's and Speedon'ts.

pizzacheetah:

Before I start ranting about what you should and should not do while wearing a Speedo, I’d like to point out that I made a funny with the title of this post. Look, it’s a pun. Ehehehehe. Anyway, here goes, my list of do’s and don’ts for wearing Speedos.

Do: Act comfortably.
Don’t: Be so…

Pizzacheetah is amazing. Follow this young chap. NOW.

Concert at Hamer hall was pretty good, with exception to the horrid acoustics that drowned and swilled the tempo of Mahler about, and the soprano could hardly be heard. Personally the ACO handle Bach, Mozart and late romantic stuff better with a smaller chamber feel to the music than Mahler. Tognetti showed off his conducting skill with his immensely French style of conducting, which whilst it seemed to suit Sibelius well, didn’t with Mahler. All in all, it was a good evening.

Look at this Mofo. Look at the way he picks them big ass lapels and pairs it with a clashing eight-buttoned double breasted vest, hand in his unbuttoned side like a dapper badass who dont care about Master Wagner`s screaming in the corner about his sartorial mistake. And why doesnt Verdi care? Because this wicked chap does things by his own rules, and his own game. So fat big ass linen workcoat with a silk cravat and odd waist coat? Who the flying fuck cares? This man doesnt, because as he broods and stares to his left and considers what to do with his next opera and how to ignore Master Wagner`s cat calling party, he`s just owning it. HE dont need no pink flamingo, love. All he needs is the sound of pain and utter turmoil and he`s gonna bash out a thing of beauty that will tear your heart out. And thats why he`s owning this outfit. Because its him.

Statements about mixed race people being ‘exotic’ and more beautiful, aside from being fallacious, are also problematic and potentially dangerous. The accompanying racial fetishisation is an issue for mixed race people and also for the POC communities to which they belong. It is an issue for all multiracial identities but I have come across this with alarming prevalence in concern to those of us who are part-white/European.

We are beautiful to you because we are black but not too black. We are brown but not too brown. We are European enough to fit into your Eurocentric view of beauty but non-white enough to be unusual and interesting. We are similar enough to be safe and different enough to be exciting. Isn’t that what you’re really saying? These ideals of light skin and Europeanised features contribute to the discrimination of darker skinned/non-European people.

i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.

See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.

He knows men are like that

his father was like that to his mother

he has experienced the pain firsthand, of what it’s like when men are like that

and he never wants men to be like that again and he fights tooth and nail against the men who are still like that

And moreover, he acknowledges his privilege [as an older white male who is famous/well known] and uses it to speak up. He knows what he is, and he never has to say he’s not like those men he fights against—he never says it, his actions speak loud enough for everyone else to see it. 

Sir Patrick Stewart, everyone.
