  • I read 110 books in 2020 so it was hard to narrow it down, but here are my favorite 15! (10 was impossible)

    No particular order, just a cover and a quote (in french or in english)!

    I hope you find some great books to read next! (please read them if you can! They broke me in all the right places and then brought me back together.)

    1. Amal El-Mohtar, This Is How You Lose the Time War, 2019.

    I love you. I love you. I love you. I’ll write it in waves. In skies. In my heart. You’ll never see, but you will know. I’ll be all the poets, I’ll kill them all and take each one’s place in turn, and every time love’s written in all the strands it will be to you.

    2. Alex Hirsch, Gravity Falls Lost Legends, 2018.

    One minute you are breathing air, the next you are breathing fingers. Think you found a sandwich? It’s a planet. You just ate a planet.

    3. Christelle Dabos, Les disparus du Clairedelune (La Passe-Miroir #2), 2015.

    image

    La première fois que je vous ai vue, je me suis fait une piètre opinion de vous. Je vous croyais sans jugeote et sans caractère, incapable de tenir jusqu'au mariage. Ça restera à jamais la plus grosse erreur de ma vie.

    4. Stephen King, The Long Walk, 1999.

    image

    “That’s all I hope. If there is an… an after, I hope it’s not dark. And I hope you can remember. I’d hate to wander around in the dark forever, not knowing who I was or what I was doin’ there, or not even knowing that I’d ever had anything different.

    5. William Goldman, The Princess Bride, 2003.

    image

    There is no room in my body for anything but you. My arms love you, my ears adore you, my knees shake with blind affection.

    6. Stephen King, It, 1986.

    image

    We grew up, he thought. We didn’t think it would happen, not then, not to us. But it did, and if I go in there it will be real: we’re all grownups now.

    7. Sylvain Neuvel, Sleeping Giants (Themis Files #1), 2016.

    image

    We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.

    8. Alex Michaelides, The Silent Patient, 2019.

    image

    You become increasingly confortable with madness– and not just the madness of others, but your own. We’re all crazy, I believe, just in different ways.

    9. Wajdi Mouawad, Incendies (Le sang des promesses #2), 2003.

    image

    Je comprends maintenant ce que tu as voulu dire quand tu m'as demandé : “Où serons-nous dans cinquante ans ?” Je ne sais pas. Mais partout où je serai, tu y seras. Nous rêvions de regarder l'océan ensemble. Eh bien, Nawal, je te le dis, je te le jure, le jour où je le verrai, le mot océan explosera dans ta tête et tu éclateras en sanglots car tu sauras alors que je pense à toi. Peu importe où je serai, nous serons ensemble. Il n'y a rien de plus beau que d'être ensemble.

    10. Delia Owens, Where the Crawdads Sing, 2018.

    image

    Sunsets are in disguise, covering truths, covering lies.

    11. Robert Charles Wilson, Spin, 2006.

    image

    Des gens plus jeunes que moi m'ont demandé : Pourquoi n'as-tu pas paniqué ? Pourquoi personne n'a-t-il paniqué ? Il n'y a pas eu d'émeutes, de pillages ? Pourquoi votre génération a-t-elle laissé faire, pourquoi vous êtes-vous tous laissés entrer dans le Spin sans même un murmure de protestation ?

    12. Gerard Way, Apocalypse Suite (The Umbrella Academy #1), 2008.

    image

    Don’t ever let the media tell you what your body is supposed look like. You’re beautiful the way you are. Stay beautiful, keep it ugly.

    13. Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects, 2006.

    image

    I just think some women aren’t made to be mothers. And some women aren’t made to be daughters.

    14. Elizabeth Acedevo, The Poet X, 2018.

    image

    I look and feel like a myth.
    A story distorted, waiting for others to stop and stare.

    15. Albert Camus, L’Etat de Siège, 1948.

    image

    Vous avez cru que tout pouvait se mettre en chiffres et en formules ! Mais dans votre belle nomenclature, vous avez oublié la rose sauvage, les signes dans le ciel, les visages d'été, la grande voix de la mer, les instants du déchirement et la colère des hommes !

  • Roman Theatre of Amman, Jordan, 129 by tango- Amman’s Roman Theatre is a 6,000-seat, 2nd-century Roman theatre. A famous landmark in the Jordanian capital, it dates back to the Roman period when the city was known as Philadelphia. The theatre and the nearby Odeon are flanking the new Hashemite Plaza from the south and the east respectively, while the Roman Nymphaeum is just a short stroll away in south-westerly direction.


    The theatre was built during the reign of Antonius Pius (138-161 CE). The large and steeply raked structure could seat about 6,000 people: built into the hillside, it was oriented north to keep the sun off the spectators.

    It was divided into three horizontal sections (diazomata). Side entrances (paradoi) existed at ground level, one leading to the orchestra and the other to the stage. Rooms behind these entrances now house the Jordan Museum of Popular Tradition on the one side, and the Jordan Folklore Museum on the other side.

    The highest section of seats in a theatre, known in British English as “the gods”, even though far from the stage, offer here excellent sightlines, while the actors can be clearly heard, owing to the steepness of the cavea.

    The theatre is now used as a venue for cultural activities including the Amman International Book Fair, the Amman Marathon prize ceremony, and musical concerts, most notably the Al-Balad Music Festival. https://flic.kr/p/2ktZkWj

  • I’m all for hiring trained singers/dancers/performers for movie musicals as opposed to trying to teach big name actors how to do it.

    Except for Mamma Mia.

    The biggest joy of Mamma Mia is feeling like the whole thing is being performed by loving relatives at a wedding reception and you can pry Pierce Brosnon’s SOS out of my cold dead hands.

    #does your mother know???? that song is for wine aunts ONLY #SOS??? that’s for moms who were in theatre and supportive husbands who like to sing along to Bohemian Rhapsody on road trips #take a chance on me is a cousin rager ONLY #Mamma Mia#pierce brosnan#abba#meryl streep#musicals#theatre#film#movie musicals#cats#julie walters#christine baranski#amanda seyfried#dancing queen

  • it has been almost an entire year since i programmed our schools musical and every time i hear a song from it i get the strange need to pretend to change lighting cues whenever I had a new cue in the song

    #i literally had a dream like last week about the show and woke up and opened the design program #and I started editing the lighting design for a show that i did a year ago before i was like oh #that shows done #it was literally the last thing i did before the shutdown so we never got like closure on the show yknow #so here i am still with all the cues for the show memorized #sigh#lighting design#technical theatre#lighting designer#theatre
