Phantom of the Opera in Fifteen Minutes

As promised: Phantom of the Opera in Fifteen Minutes. I'm still counting up the fundraising, but we'll have a final count soon. I'm already running late with the book manuscript, but this was a very quick write--it practically parodies itself, and it was fun, and a good palate cleanser.



ETA 4/02/05: Okay. I'm gonna try to be real clear about this. I really, really liked the movie. I liked the book. I have never seen the show, but I would probably like it, and I ended up really enjoying the music. I like the actors involved. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ME COMMENTS ABOUT MY "HATE" FOR THE MOVIE. The point of these parodies is "affectionate snark." The jokes are written with love. If I hated the movie, I wouldn't bother. If you think I'm not funny, that's one thing, but please don't leave me long screeds about how I didn't "understand" or "appreciate" the movie, because you're preaching to the choir. (Yes, I have received, and am still receiving, a lot of these. Two today alone, in fact.)

P.S. Please look up the difference between "heroin" and "heroine" before you complain about my "Heroine Addict" icons. It's a pun. It's supposed to be a positive thing. I'm not calling anyone a drug user. Thank you, and enjoy.





Oh, and since it always comes up: I never have a problem with anyone leaving comments. In fact, if you'd like, you can leave them in the comments for me to see. But please don't copy or repost the entire thing anywhere; excerpts and links are always fine, though.

ETA: Minor corrections have been made to dates and a couple of names.

OH MY GOD, HE'S SLIGHTLY UNATTRACTIVE ON ONE SIDE! TO ARMS!Collapse )

Okay, I didn't even bother reading the whole thing before I scrolled wildly down for this comment:


DO NOT TELL ME THEY STOLE THE ARM CANDELABRA FROM COCTEAU'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. YOU DO NOT FUCK WITH THAT MOVIE, SCHUMACHER. EVER EVER EVER.


::scrolls back up, with with much dark glowering hatred, to see if the Phantom also laps water from Christine's hands::

actually I considered that a nod, rather than a pilfering. Mike Nichols referred to that too in Angels in America.

I so skipped writing my paper to read this. And it was so worth it. I think "boobtastic" is my wordoftheweek.

What can I say but Bravo!!!!*throwing kisses*

I especially loved the cemetary scene, and next time I do a costume I'll have to remember to describe the dress bodice it as "boobtastic!"

Thank You Cleolinda for helping me by offering to do this as an incentive for the fundraiser! I am forever in your debt!

They say laughter is the best medicine and you gave me a great dose today!

*Bowing* to the master of m15m!

I find it amusing that of all the m15m's this one made the least sense, and it is relatively simple.

Goes to show you - musical movies = no sense. At all. Ever.

CARLOTTA: I hate-a you alla so verreh, verreh much. Carlotta as Eric Cartman? Oh the possibilities.

Cleo, seriously. You. Kick. Ass. *waits for the day you take on all Broadway and nail Wicked and Rent*

Oh my God. If she did Rent in 15 Minutes I would utterly explode. There's so much material for hilarity there. O-M-G.

You are absolutely amazing. Seriously. That was the funniest thing I've read in... a really really really long time.

And finally! Someone else who has read the book! (I'm at least assuming you have since you reference it; gosh, that's an amazing book...)
cleolinda From: cleolinda Date: January 9th, 2005 09:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
I only read it for the first time about two months ago, because the movie was coming out, but I loved it. : )

Thank you. MY SPLEEN HAS IMPLODED FROM GLEE. XD

Linking this in my journal -- sheer brilliance.

Soo OT

*Squee!* I love the icon! *molests icon...Hey it told me too!*
megkips From: megkips Date: January 9th, 2005 08:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Heh, I saw the movie and I very much liked it for the camera use (I take video and film as an elective in school and we learned cinemetography stuffs), but this version totally takes the cake. Thank you for livening up an otherwise boring Sunday.
demented_pants From: demented_pants Date: February 21st, 2005 05:21 am (UTC) (Link)
Exactly.
The first time I watched it, I spent the entire time going "OMG BEAUTIFUL TRANSITIONS KTHX."

The second time, I spent it squeebling over Cleo's little jokes.

And snarking at the Phantom's cape.

found via metaquotes: this is fucking brilliant. i have no idea who you are, but i love you forever.
