Man, that's like asking ... someone who really likes all musicals... what their favorite musical is.. uhm...
I don't have a favorite, because there are so many good ones, so I'll just list ALLthe musicals that I know of and stick 'em in a catagory.
Best ones: Ragtime Into the Woods, Whistle down the Wind Les Miserables Rent The Producers The Pirates of Penzance Iolanthe The Mikado Wicked O Brother, Where Art Thou? Side Show
Other ones I enjoy (whether just for the music or otherwise): A chorus Line Little Shop of Horrors Avenue Q A funny Thing Happened on the Way to the forum Sound of Music South Pacific Guys and Dolls The Music Man Annie Get Your Gun Company Aida Hair Chicago Will Roger Follies Oliver! Miss Saigon The Man of La Mancha Evita Aspects of Love 42nd street Godspell Jesus Christ Superstar Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat You're a good man, Charlie Brown Fiddler on the roof My Fair Lady Moving Out West Side Story Phantom of the Opera Aspects of Love Batboy Thuroughly Modern Millie Kiss Me Kate Gypsy Hairspray Damn Yankees The Best little Whorehouse in Texas (has some good music) The Color Purple Cabaret Parade (the one song that I heard, I like.)
Musicals I don't particularly like for some reason or Other Avenue Q (It's sort of up in the air on this one) Oklahoma! Seven Brides for Seven Brothers Rocky Horror Picture Show RENT: movie soundtrack. Cinderella (Not the movie soundtrack... I don't know if the particular musical is disney related.) Merry Poppins Five years Later Nine Annie Starlight Express Cats Suessical! Sweeny Todd Hello Dolly! Hedwig and the angry itch The Wizard of Oz Ohio Most of the "Broadway Musicals of 193X". Batboy (Only like the music half the time.) The Best little Whorehouse in Texas (generally I dont' like it.)
Rambling time now!
I WAS particularly fond of RENT until the movie happened, and now it makes me sad, and not in the meaningful way. They -intentionally- left out a lot of the character development and emotional scenes.
Ragtime, the Civil War, and Les Miserables all make me very sad, they're the most moving, and they make me cry. However, I'm also very fond of the upbeat and popular tunes from "Guys and Dolls" (such as "guys and dolls" and "Luck be a lady") and "Annie Get Your Gun" (Such as "No business like Show Business", "So they say", and of course "Anything you can do I can do better") which make me happy.
Stephen Schwarts is a phenomenal music writer, having done the music for the upbeat and religious "Godspell", which, in spite of the very spiritual conotations, is kind of a fun hippy musical of sorts, but unlike "hair", the social problems/events weren't being brought up intentionally, I don't think. I do like the music from Godspell; I can't say why. This guy also did the music for the much more recent "Wicked", which is also really good, but is essentially a very popular fanfiction that made it to broadway.
I'm also a fan of Stephan Sondheim... though I'm more fond of the way the stories are told; his music is frequently just diologue set to music. However, I still think it's good. Of his, my favorites are "Into the Woods" (which I was planning on doing some disney fanart to, but I decided against it because I was being lazy) and "A funny thing happened on the way to the forum", though from what I've heard of "Company", it seems all right too...
I wish I had seen more Andrew Lloyd Webber stuff. I'm NOT too fond of Cats OR the Starlight Express, but that's mostly because it's outdated and I think it's aimed at a younger audience. "Whistle Down the Wind", though is one of my favorites... and the music from most of his stuff is generally moving. *thumbs up*
PS. I haven't seen the Buffy "Musical" episode, but I want to. =3
When I was 11, I started reading Zelda Fanfictions.
When I was 13, I started doing free-form role-playing online. Sometimes that included being forced to type very quickly in order to dodge attacks. I was in this chatroom where you could only defend yourself if you could type faster than the attack could hit you, so...
And all through highschool, the only thing seperating me from the computer was school.
Now I'm almost 21, and I've been typing for a long, long time.
Do you embrace new technology?
Yes. Technology is our friend, and mkaes for a better, cleaner, faster-moving and cooler world; where high-tech military items become inexpensive and common household objects, like laser-lights, bulletproof vests, and soon so will invisibility suits and those semi-robotic outfits that enhance strength and speed, room-tempurature-liquid-hydrogen to power magnetic-levitation trains at low cost... going into space will be less dangerous.
what kind of rolepaying charachers do you play often
what kind of sandwitch fillings do you like?
I try to play good guys, I'm not very goot at antagonists because my bad guys are WAY too two-dimensional. So I do try to play good guys, but when I do, I don't really make them into Heroes. I try not to play that person who just charges into battle and solves plotline.. I don't think. It's hard to tell nowadays. But I generally play a lot of side characters with their own plotlines who just stick around for fun. I frequently play young boys, because I like feeling a maternal love for 'em. Also, a lot of them are sword-fighters, more than mages. I don't like playing female characters that much. That just about sums it up.
Favorite Sandwich topping: Turkey, Lettuce, tomato (a little) avacado, mayonayse, swiss cheese, on Sourdough. =3
I also am a bi fan of theese cheesesteaks that are served at one place down in Irvine. Mmmmm.
And arby's regular Roast Beef sandwiches are good too.
I've not seen you around in a while, how have you been lately?
Oh, like anybody else, there've been rollar coasters. Got pretty stressed for a whlle. But I wans to make a little children's story with animation coupling Disney's style, and turn away fromt he anime that I've been drawing with all these years. Darn stuff, so hard to pull away from.
Hi, fisher! I'm just wondering, how did you come up with your screen name, because it's completly ironic in the fact that Fisher is my real last name. Ironic, huh? L.G.
Well, I got it because I was trying to find a way to remind myself of my religion more regularly without being so blatant, so I inwardly linked "fisher" with my religion, so that, as I spend a lot of time online, when I'd see it, I'd at least take a little time out of my day to be like "Huh, yeah, I should do something spiritiual".
I'm not the most devouted person in the world, though, and my laziness often dictates how little I pay much attention to it.
I hope this explanation hasn't offended you. Implying that one is religious almost seems taboo nowadays- or at least around the crowd that I usually run in.
