I’ve been away from the theatre fandom for SO. LONG. I don’t know if it’s the same as when I left it… Probably. I’m sure it is. Anyway, I figured people might like this audio so here y’all go! The quality’s pretty good if I do say so myself. I also pretty much tracked this show my own way; sorry if there’s a standard way of doing it!
David was clearly still a bit ill from the chest infection that’s taken him out of the show today, but I’m glad he braved it so he could at least be there for Earl’s first show back. He sounds great, actually, aside from a couple of rough patches (a bit of straining in Bring Him Home and that last killer ‘24601’ in Who Am I). Earl is fantastic - I uploaded his Suicide earlier because goodgodalmighty, but I also took care to upload The Confrontation for this post: just listen to his incredible low notes when he sings ‘you’ll wear a different chain’… So fucking sexy omg.
I’ve never been a big believer in hoarding audios (well, except some - ahem), so I’m gifting this. Feel free to reblog, share and do with as you like. It’d be lovely if you could like/reblog this post or drop me a message if you download but totally not necessary. Also, I would obviously not say no if anyone feels like sharing audios with me (since I have now succumbed to this Les Mis sickness quite badly). I’d love ANYTHING with Hadley Fraser (is Last Five Years a really ridiculously rare audio? because I want that in my life!!). And for Les Mis specifically, I wouldn’t mind a Ramin/Hadley audio, preferably with an understudy Eponine. I did get to see Ramin and Hadley in the show together a couple of months back but brilliantly did not bring my recorder with me. Sigh. I also have audios from the other times I’ve seen Les Mis over the last month or so (with one of Chris Jacobsen, and others with understudies for Fantine and Cosette), as well as one of Scott Garnham’s cabaret. So let me know if you’re interested in those and I’ll get around to tracking them at some point.
I'm sorry, but could you possibly explain to me (with actual facts) how abortion always ends in murder? Since, you know, an EMBRYO OR FETUS is not actually a sentient being.
The baby (scientifically known as a fetus) has it’s own individual 46 chromosomes that have the directions to make it an entirely unique human being right at the moment of conception. It isn’t part of the mother, but a developing child inside her womb until it is strong and developed enough to be able to survive outside the womb. At only 22 days, the baby already has a beating heart. At 28 days it has a completely separate blood flow from the mother. After 9-10 weeks, the child can suck it’s thumb, swallow, squint, frown, and respond to touch. How can you deny that it is a living human being?
Abortion DOES NOT result in death since there is NO baby involved. Its a foetus. Why dont you get it?
'Fetus' is simply a scientific word for 'baby'. It's the same child as the one who is born 9 months later, only smaller and less developed. A 2 year old is not less human than a 6 year old because it's younger, the same goes for unborn and born babies.
Oh GOD please!! that stupid picture you have shared of a baby saying I pray to Lord my soul to take. I hope you understand that a FOETUS is NOT a BABY. STOP BEING SO IGNORANT. Its not like after the baby is born YOU are going to take care of it. SO just stay out of it.
Yes, it is a baby. It has it’s own 46 chromosomes that make it an entirely separate and unique human being, who deserves an equal right to life. There are actually quite a few pregnancy centers that will help women before AND after the baby is born, and adoption is always a better option than murder.
