Audio Gift: Christopher Lee reads Phantom of the Opera Audiobook
I recently got my hands on a 3 hour recording of Christopher Lee reads Phantom of the Opera and wanted to share it with anyone interested. His horror story audiobooks are amazing, this one in particular. So enjoy!

Please, like or reblog if you download.
THANK YOU I WANT THIS SO LONG ;__;
About time to bring this back, for Halloween
I love the phandom because I can draw living corpses and blood and deformed murderers and people go "pretty!!!"
And I think that is beautiful.
And possibly a bit disturbing but not as disturbing an average tabloid newspaper so that’s ok
Seriously I love you people. You embrace all the creepy and super ugly portrayals of Erik while in rl people give you weird looks when you poor Erik. It’s awesome!
Anonymous said: I've always been curious about this, why is old Raoul so sad in the beginning of the ALW!musical? Is it because Christine has passed away and he wants something to remember her by or place on her grave (like in the 2004 movie) or is it just a mystery? Thank you!
I always take it that Christine died perhaps not so many years before the start of the musical, and that Raoul is still haunted by the ghosts that lingered in their lives after they escaped from the Phantom. He is also an old and infirm man who is at the end of his life.
I take it that he has returned to the Opera auction to collect mementos from his earlier days with Christine (note that he only bids on items that have a connection to Christine), and that he initially came for reasons of nostalgia as well as closure. Seeing the monkey music box probably threw him for a loop, though — unless he had carefully reviewed the programme listing the items for sale, he wouldn’t have expected to see it at the auction.
So Raoul is old, tired, and no doubt desperately misses Christine. And even though he may feel compelled to revisit their past (much of the musical can be seen as an extended flashback from Raoul’s perspective), it can’t be an easy journey.
Is it just me or does Andrew Lloyd Webber look like a Charles Dickens villain because
oh my god
Kind of reminds me of the Beadle (Timothy Spall’s character) from the Sweeney Todd movie??
art isn’t easy
Okay everyone, your efforts got me all the way up to 2nd place (!!!), but now the serious voting period has started (and will continue until August 31st) and people are catching up to me, and I’ve already fallen to 3rd. Please please please, if you have a facebook account, just click this link and then click ‘like’ on my mask design. I really want to be one of the winners so that my mask can be displayed in the Art of the Mask exhibit, and I would greatly appreciate your help in making that happen.
If you have a bit more time, it would also be really awesome if you checked out/voted for some of the other beautiful, creative entries that are getting far fewer votes than they deserve. Thank you so much! :)
I still can’t believe I did this today!
bluecoolkind sent me one of the little costume pamphlets from the tour, and first off, it is THE coolest thing and I love her.
And I of course really excitedly noticed that the Don Juan costume design they included features another of Maria’s sketches (that I personally have never seen before) of the undergarments and… I’m just completely blown by the fact that my Aminta petticoat/corset illustration isn’t actually that far fetched after all.
Daroga’s got 99 problems and I’m pretty sure Erik is just about all of them
