The Mechanical Menagerie

That Mr McArthur's looked all over town,
But he won't find me now for I'm off coastward bound.
And I'm trading the smog for some fresh salt sea air
And he'll never catch on that I'm there.

I was once his apprentice, in the clock-making trade,
And the miser made me work for every penny of my wage.
Til he found he could replace me with a clockwork machine,
And he threw me right out on the street.


and that's where our story begins!

He did it. He actually managed to describe how it feels to live with depression and suicidal tendencies.

this is really, really important

This man is perfect. He explained how he has to live with OCD, and now this.

Bless this man.

Demo of Beat It composed using only Michael Jackson’s voice

As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.

One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”

Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.

We need to talk about Jessica Rabbit. Why? Because Who Framed Roger Rabbit is an amazing movie and because Jessica is the most underrated character in the world and it’s tragically ironic, especially when you consider what her character is supposed to represent.

It’s no secret that Jessica is sexy. Her bust-waist-leg proportions are worse than Barbie’s! But that’s the point. Jessica was supposed to be proof that some animators completely exaggerated certain body parts when drawing cartoon women.

But as the movie goes on, Jessica actually shows the struggle that she has to face. “You don’t know how hard it is being a woman looking the way I do.” I mean, Jessica has to stow weapons in her bra due to the amount of times that guys have tried to fondle her. She was forced to dance, sing, and play patty-cake with Acme. People always reblog her quote, “I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.” But very few people seem to know what that means. Jessica was drawn, most likely by a sexist man, to be sexy and act naughty.

But here’s the best part: Jessica doesn’t want any of that. She just wants to be with her husband, Roger. Roger. Out of every Toon in Toontown, Jessica falls in love with Roger. Why? Because he makes her laugh. Because whereas everyone else saw her as being a sex symbol, he saw her for her personality. He unconditionally loved her and she unconditionally loved him. And she was ready to do anything for him. She danced, she sang, she played patty-cake, all because they threatened to kill him. Long story short, she’s an amazing character because she has a great personality, undying love for her husband, and the ability to fight when the time comes. (She used a fryign pan to bash a Toon’s head in long before Rapunzel!) She is, in short, amazing.

And do you know what the ironic part is? Go into the Jessica Rabbit tag. 3/4 of the tag is explicit drawings and photoshops. Most people don’t respect her character and instead see her as simply a sex symbol … which is completely ironic because her entire plotline was about how nobody respected her and saw her as a sex symbol! Even though she was so much more than that! Do you see where I’m going with this? (Hello Nurse has the same problem but that’s a post for another day.)

this needs more notes.

I wish there was a codeword for “you sprung that plan on me too last-minute and I didn’t have enough time to mentally prepare myself” because I feel kinda bad when someone spontaneously invites me to do something and I’m just like no no no no I need WARNING I have to have enough time to build up my social energy
