  1. ♪ Dun dadadadun DUN DUN ♪ (my best approximation of Alexander Hamilton's opening)
  2. Okay okay okay. Hear me out. I know that it sounds weird, but the idea popped in my brain this afternoon, and all of a sudden, I got obsessed with the idea. In this hypothetical Musical, these are the songs I was kinda thinking. ACT 1 “Calamity” “Bad Metaphors” “I Wanna Kill Steelheart” “Who Doesn’t Want a Smoke Grenade?” “Convince Her” “A Banana Farm of Guns” ACT 2 “Why Do You Hate Me?” “Then and Now” “A Brick Made of Porridge” “Dramatic” “Tonight” “Firefight” “I Killed Steelheart, Now What?” "Calamity" - David sees that Steelheart bleeds at the Bank years ago. "Bad Metaphors” - David helps the Reckoners take down Fortuity “I Wanna Kill Steelheart” - David tells the Reckoners he wants them to help him kill Steelheart. “Who Doesn’t Want a Smoke Grenade?” - David, Cody, and Megan go to David’s Apartment to get his notes “Convince Her” - David tells the Reckoners his plan to kill Steelheart David learns about the Tensors “A Banana Farm of Guns” - David visits the Gun Shop with Abraham and Megan David discovers Nightwielder’s weakness ~~Intermission “Why Do You Hate Me?” - The Reckoners attack the Powerplant, Love Song with David and Megan “Then and Now” - The Reckoners find the Bank “A Brick Made of Porridge” - The Reckoners attack Conflux “Dramatic” - Megan Dies The Reckoners interrogate Conflux Steelheart Accepts Limelight’s Challenge “Tonight” - The Reckoners prepare for the fight with Steelheart The Reckoners Fight Steelheart “Firefight” - Discovering Megan / Killing Nightwielder -Explodes Steelheart with the pen -Prof is an epic “I Killed Steelheart, Now What?” - Finale
  3. Building from the foundation @Lindel set, me and @voidlightx completed the lyrics for the Stormlight version of the first Hamilton song. It was really fun, and I'm really proud of how it turned out. We are planning on doing a full cast recording if it's possible, so if you want to join, DM me, I'm creating a discord group to coordinate everything. Spoilers through RHYTHM OF WAR. We hope you enjoyed it.
  4. @Shard of Thought and i are trying to create a Cosmere version of the whole "The greatest showman" soundtrack. So far the idea is to have the first song (the greatest showman) to be a sort of intro to the cosmere, and the rest to be about different books in the cosmere. If you want to try one just comment which one so we know. Let's have fun! I'll make "A million dreams"
  5. I originally read the Wheel of Time because I was already a fan of Sanderson and figured I didn't want to face the dilemma of what book to read next for a while. 14 books should keep me busy for a while, right? Well a few years and 3 re-reads later, here I am with a parody song, inspired by my initial confusion over who was who with all 2000ish characters. Spoiler FREE, check out the lyrics but you'll only really get a sense of it by listening. Not a great recording, but I was working with certain limitations. It is what it is. I finally found a name that appears twice, after months of work and the thing being already recorded...oops. Bonus points if you find it! I am the very Model of a Major Robert Jordan Fan.m4a
  6. *EDIT* @Personification just alerted me, there's a HUGE thread on this already with amazing songs, you can find it here: Scene 1: A man lays prostrate on a circular stone platform, lit by a single spotlight. Behind this solitary figure a sheet with striated bands of different shades of grey roils tempestuously. Another figure, hidden in the darkness stage left, with hair spangled with glowing rubies and wearing a Vorin Havah approaches the prostrate figure while singing: Song 1: Memory (sung to the tune of Memory from Cats) Good Knight, Laid out on the Pavement, Has this man lost his memory? He is weeping alone In the dim light, the petaled shame collects at his feet And his Spren begins to moan. Every dead-voice seems to scream An Abominable witness, The Thrill it claims him, the dead-voices shame him, And he begs for forgiveness. Memory, All alone without Stormlight He can see her from old days She was beautiful then He remembers, he killed her and watched Rathalis burn Now her memory lives again Now for the game part, pick one of your favorite scenes from SLA, pick a song from a Musical, write alternate lyrics and link to a video of the song being sung so that Sharders can sing your altered lyrics to the tune of a musical number. Mwhahahah, let the fun begin.
  7. So I know there's another thread similar to this, but it's in a section that is supposed to have no spoilers. Moving some of my old ones here, so that I can spoil to my heart's content. Anyone else is welcome to join me. For a first one: To the tune of "We Are the Crystal Gems" by Rebecca Sugar <Kaladin> If you're voidspren and you're on the rise You can count on the four of us taking you down Because we've got spren and we've got Stormlight powers We'll kick your butt and then go out for chouta We are knights radiant And we'll probably save the day And if you think we can't We'll machina a way That's why the people of Roshar Believe in Kholin Kaladin and Szeth and Shallan! <Dalinar> If you could only know The disasters I've seen When the highstorms come And sweep me into dreams You'd be amazed to see Honor's Radiance and worth And I will unite mankind And I will unite this earth And I will unite this earth I will unite them! <Shallan> I will fight for a chance to be me And live together with my family <Dalinar> I will fight in the name of Roshar And everyone that I believe in <Szeth> I will fight in the name of Kholin The most honorable man I've ever known <Kaladin> I will fight to be everything Tien wanted me to become in Hearthstone <All> The odds are against but we aren't going to do it alone! We are knights radiant And we'll probably save the day And if you think we can't We'll machina a way That's why the people of Roshar Believe Kholin Kaladin and Szeth and Shallan!
  8. Major spoilers, so don't read if you haven't seen it. Here are some posts I made elsewhere showing the evolution of my thoughts on the movie, especially the snowman. January 20: Saw Frozen. I liked a ton of things about it, but that snowman made it a much worse movie. The snowman was definitely getting a lot of laughs in the kid-heavy theater crowd. But the movie could have done without it and just played up the reindeer more if they needed more comic relief. The more I think about the movie the more I like it. It does some great stuff with trope subversion. I'd love to see a version without the snowman though. The snowman was not quite as annoying as Eddie Murphy. His character was not deliberately annoying like that. It was annoying for largely meta reasons. There were actual in-world reasons for the way the snowman acted; it's not a snarky sidekick character. The snowman may not have bothered me as much if I'd seen the movie ten years ago. January 21: I saw the movie again today. (we were doing individual daddy/daughter days.) and my opinions were confirmed. And I like all the songs. I like the movie a lot. I'm just going to pretend there is no Olaf. January 23: I've been thinking about Frozen a lot, and I've decided that although the snowman Olaf does feel like a non sequitur in many scenes, he's not bolted on to the movie but was always intended to play the role he plays at the end. Some spoilers. Olaf has a reason to know things about love—he is the embodiment of Elsa & Anna's relationship that could have been. For years Anna has been begging Elsa to spend time with her, and what she always says is "Do you want to build a snowman?" And the truth is that Elsa desperately wants to. When she finally lets loose and starts using her powers, Olaf is one of the very first things she makes. She unconsciously imbues her love for Anna into his personality, in the first moment she stops repressing her feelings. So I have to accept Olaf, though I do think he could have been done a bit differently. I also really like how the movie doesn't go and say outright that Elsa is really the one whose heart has been frozen for years. She was doing what she was doing out of her love for Anna—but it was the wrong thing to do, and it turned to fear, which made everything worse. There's not much from the Hans Christian Anderson story the Snow Queen in the movie, but one sibling teaching the other not to repress feelings is the important thing that made the transition. January 28: I love this movie so much. I didn't see it until last week when I took my oldest daughter to it, and then the next day I took her younger sister. I'm going to have to think about it some more, but this may possibly surpass the Little Mermaid as my favorite Disney movie (I saw that 7 times in the theater when it came out, and haven't seen any other movie in a theather more than 3 times). And I'll have to watch the Hunt for Red October again to see if Frozen surpasses it as my favorite movie of all time. This is interesting to me because there are a couple of things I dislike about Frozen, whereas of recent movies I see Tangled as nearly flawless. But the emotional reaction I get to Frozen puts it so high up on my list. January 30: This is yet another post about the snowman in Frozen. It contains major spoilers, so if you haven't seen the movie yet (Karen), ignore this. I've done a bit more thinking on this, trying to explain some things, and I've come to a few more insights. The more I think about this, the more I think this stuff was intentional on the part of the filmmakers. I said or implied before that Olaf is an embodiment of Elsa's subconscious, which she imbued in him in the moment of his creation. This is in more ways than the one I pointed out before, that he embodies her relationship with Anna—who always wanted to build a snowman with her, and she always wanted to say yes but held herself back. 1. Olaf's desire for summer The first major thing Olaf does is sing about what summer would be like, after saying, "I've always loved the idea of summer." Olaf has been in existence for less than a day. How could he "always" have loved the idea of summer? It's because Elsa has been freezing her emotions for years, and she unconsciously has wanted to get away from that. She desperately wants summer in her life—she wants to thaw, but is sure she never can. 2. Olaf the love expert When Olaf made the comment "You know, I consider myself to be a love expert," it seemed like a throwaway line. Far from it. Olaf represents everything that Elsa knows or thinks she knows about love. When Olaf talks to Anna about love at the end, how it's putting someone else's needs before yours, this is Elsa's understanding of love. But Olaf's (and Elsa's) understanding of love is still imperfect. When Olaf sees Kristoff coming back, he says, "Oh, I guess he doesn't love you after all." That also seemed like just a funny line, but it's much more than that. Elsa thinks that love is ALL about self-sacrifice—she's been shutting herself away for years, keeping herself apart from the people she loves. At the end when Anna sacrifices herself for Elsa and Elsa realizes that Anna loves her, she also realizes that love is not just keeping yourself from hurting the ones you love, but love is going to the one you love and being with them when they need you. And in that moment when Elsa realizes that love will thaw, summer returns to her life for the first time in forever.
