I, uh, was quiet there for a while, hehe. I think about B&B stuff nearly every day, I’m always finding articles I wanna share, new songs that make me perk my ears, upcoming fan things and fun things that I think you’d like to know about. And then I get distracted by shiny and there goes that.
I’m working on some fun stuff in my spare time that yes, someday I’ll share, but this is not that day. However, I do have something to post today, which is the whole reason I’m writing this awkward entry. You see, I’m always thinking of filk lyrics I can apply to existing songs, and one brainchild that refuses to stop pestering me involves the Disney animated feature movie Tangled. I have a WHOLE MOVIE in my head that changes Rapunzel to Vincent, her “mother” to Father, and it is terribly silly.
I was just thinking of this again in the shower (where, truthfully, most of my silly ideas come from), and decided I wanted to write out the lyrics to one particular song from the animated movie that just tickles me. Not only that, I want to share them with you all, because this song is best sung by a guy, and I do not have a manly voice.
Perhaps you know someone who can tackle this, record it, and share it with the Winterfest candlemakers? Clicky more to see the lyrics and see a helpful video of the actual song with its original words. HELP MAKE THIS A THING. :D
Samuel Orr, who made the above video, wants to make a longer version of this tilt-shift time-lapse work, to show many other days, nights, seasons, and sights of the Big Apple. Check out his Kickstarter project.
I don’t know if you knew this, but Roy Dotrice has lent his voice to a small number of audio books based upon some of Disney’s more recent full length animated films. Check out the following videos for a narrated version of The Little Mermaid, Hercules, and Mulan, around an hour each:
Sit back and imagine Father reading them to you, hehe.

I’m a sucker for news about abandoned tunnels, for some goofy reason, haha. Even better, I like sharing slideshows featuring these urban, largely unexplored places. Here’s a new one, courtesy of Business Insider. Click the “Go beneath Los Angeles” link and check out tunnels that haven’t been used for their intended purpose since the 1960s.
Meanwhile, in London, the cult venue The Old Vic Tunnels is closing after three years of performances, gallery shows, and other social, cultural, and entertainment venues. This rediscovered space beneath Waterloo station is part of a series of tunnels carved out in the Victorian Era, and then were abandoned as newer construction above ground buried the entrances, and knowledge of its location was lost to time. I love that they made a most literal translation of “underground events.” I hope the space can continue to be utilized; it’d be a shame for such a space to fall back to ruin and dust.

I woke up early because my Skype chat window was going berzerk–a bunch of people had added me to the group conversation. lol ‘Tis the season of Winterfest, when a bunch of fans run around and inhabit the tunnels for a week of frolicking in our fandom. I’m making it sound more frenetic than it actually is because I’m half asleep. :D

An elusive man of whom little is known aside from his works, Ron Koslow is responsible for the creation of the Beauty and the Beast series. He was invited to the 1992 Convention Tunnel Con II in Los Vegas, Nevada, and attended the convention banquet, in which the words of Winterfest, from the episode “Dead of Winter”, are spoken. Along with Armin Shimerman (Pascal) and Ritch Brinkley (William), Ron Koslow narrated the ceremony, and opened the floor to a Q&A session.
I’ve always been curious about the man, and so here is a two part series about his aspirations at the time, some of his experiences, and tantalizing answers to a few questions.
I get a lot of requests for this zipped archive of SOTO’s 3D Vincent model. I hosted a copy on my server because I found the sharecg.com website terribly complicated to browse through, and I believe that it requires one to sign up before one can get it there. Anyway, you can find this archive here. Be sure to visit the official page for this download to leave feedback about how awesome it is. SOTO originally intended this gift for Winterfest 2011, but the online convention was over before he could share it. Also check out some of SOTO’s renderings (NSFW) using his source files.
