'American Psycho’ Musical comes to Broadway

Coming to Broadway February 2016: American Psycho the Musical. After the novel, the screenplay, the casting of Patrick Bateman, a Kickstarter campaign, and the first show premiering in London, the musical has been through a lot.
And now it’s coming to the U.S. to show off it’s “killer” musical numbers, dialogue, set design, and production.
The twisted serial killer musical will twist. (of someones head muhahahaha)
The lead Matt Smith also stared (of Doctor Who Fame) is the great at the creepy Patrick Bateman...so it’s pretty much perfect. The other rumored cast includes: "Girls" actress Zosia Mamet, Tony nominees Jennifer Damiano and Isabel Keating and "Smash" actor Wesley Taylor.
The music is sorta 80s-pop and rock. Full of weird sounds and synths. It was writing by the same guy that did all of Spring Awakening music...so expect weird and awesome stuff. Here's a clip of the sounds.
Though there isn’t that much buzz in the U.S. about this musical, it’s pretty exciting to see such a weird and interesting topic to hit the stage. I’ll pretty much DIE to see this show in February.

[Spooky Weekend Club] Tale of Two Sisters
Welcome to the Spooky Weekend Club! I will be talking about a scary Korean movie that you should watch each Saturday this October to get you in the mood for Halloween. If you'd like to be tagged in the club, please let me know in the comments below or follow my Creepy Kpop collection :D (This is the one and only time I will be posting a movie card in K-pop so be sure to check out the Korean Movies and K-Drama communities) Tale of Two Sisters is a story about, you guessed it, two sisters! The film is based loosely off an old Korean folktale 장화, 홍련, and is one of the craziest psychological thrillers I've ever seen. The film begins with the oldest sister Su-mi leaving a mental institution after being treated for shock and psychosis. We aren't told what triggered this condition, but we know that she is released and brought back home to live with her father, younger sister, and step mom. Su-mi is not a huge fan of her step mom, considering she was the live-in nurse for Su-mi's mom that passed away and then married her dad, and she's pretty sure the step mom is abusing her younger sister Su-yeon who has mysterious bruises on her arm... The audience starts to lose sense of reality because Su-mi and Su-yeon both start to have wild dreams, visions, and hallucinations. We're never quite sure if we're watching a nightmare or their reality. The dreams (and reality) become increasingly scarier as the characters all start to lose their minds. The ending comes out of nowhere and you'll probably have to read the synopsis a few times to understand it - but it is definitely not what you'd expect. If you're into psychological thrillers, this is a must-watch. Solid 8.5 out of 10 from me! Have you seen Tale of Two Sisters? What would you rate it!? Tagging my K-drama folks! Let me know if you'd like to be a part of the Spooky Weekend Club :D Also tagging @ChosenKnight and those who participated in the card that got me thinking about horror movies! @DanRodriguez @MyNoahIsName @missophiestik @Baelit @Swhitta @paulisaghost @camidoll @shjej5835 @Taijiotter @AnnahiZaragoza @Kuramariin @netchtiBates @IlseJimenez @mistymaity @Allyphernelia @YvonJerzak @daznothephop @MYAlpha @thisismylife @chongx @justmeplz1998 @jannatd93 @AngelJoong86 @heidichiesa @montha91 @KiKi29 @VixenViVi @punkpandabear @deilig @BekahVires @VerusumNox @tayunnie @drummergirl691 @XergaB20 @amobigbang @DeadlyCyanide @nykechun @JennieKarlsson @SharayahTodd @themuse @DanitaOkasa @carenabobo @ElsaRuiz @caitlind9898 @sherrysahar @SHINee808 @StevanDesmonda @felicityclaire @LizaNightshade @shannawi @InnocentiaKishi @CoralCastillo @JaxomB @StephanieDuong @crystalordorica @AbrilDominguez @alondrasalas09 @ItsmkayYang @daisyzheng02 @vianeygalindo29 @maria213 @edwinb94 @iqra200 @Shay808 @renheerei @BluBear07 @Soheechanel @GabbyWilliams @VeronicaArtino @Zyair27 @JessySoo @girlzrockpit98 @SarahVanDorn @VirisaCamarena @Baekyeol27 @Bree1004 @ZoeHall @Dtlee808 @LeilaB @emsterway2000 @tseringwang12 @Sefu @wuyifanslover @ysabacani @fashionloversa @JohnEvans @BrianaPerez @desireesamuels @JunieRose @misskurmet82 @Brinicole171 @Ilikepancakes @alonb @kpopis4life @veeyang5 @NiktaIrin @camcam16 @Cree4Tia @KatelynClement @GummyBearRawr @arianafutrell @TiffanyForeman @LaurieLegendre @karlavaldez46 @dalynnbeck @LikeABird @jellybeank10 @michellefuentes @MaryBrychel @notmyday @ItsTaeHarris @CarlaMeister @EsmeraldaJC @pkher13 @free516937 @esmeraldagutirr @teemakee @Shanelle61 @mckinzieb @LeRose1988 @daviskaitlin @russelroche47 @AsianInvasion97 @naoeylor27 @alebarrera110 @Carolin1 @SimoneS1s @isehinamori @msangie906 @tusarika @LeslieHerrera @KPOPcari1395 @sarismiel @manimomopanda @nicolealuna601 @destiny1419 @MariaNegret @xxgrungexx @xxMollxx @LiliRamos @soejitzee @Joepoofy @mp512214 @Evalise @KatieShiminski @ruthmilian89
봉준호가 언급한 거장 '마틴 스코세이지', 그는 누구인가
"어렸을 적 영화 공부를 할 때 가슴에 새겼던 말이 있다. '가장 개인적인 게 가장 창의적인 것이다' 마틴의 영화를 보면서 자란 사람으로서 같은 후보에 오른 것만으로도 영광인데 상을 받을 줄은 전혀 몰랐다." 제92회 아카데미 시상식에서 4관왕을 수상하며 이례적인 업적을 남긴 <기생충>의 봉준호 감독의 수상 소감이 세간의 화제다. 그는 존경하는 감독 마틴 스코세이지(Martin Scorsese)의 말을 인용하며 경의를 표한 것. 이에 영화인들의 기립박수가 이어지며 감동적이고 의미 있는 장면이 연출됐다. 1963년 단편 영화로 데뷔한 마틴 스코세이지는 올해 77세로 미국 영화사에서 손꼽히는 명감독. 지난해 로버트 드 니로, 알 파치노, 조 페시 등 뛰어난 배우들이 대거 출연한 넷플릭스 오리지널 영화 <아이리시맨>을 선보이며, 이번 시상식에서 <기생충>과 함께 후보에 오르기도 하였다. 영화를 좋아하는 사람이라면 한 번쯤 본 그의 작품. 그중 대표적인 다섯 영화를 소개한다. 🎬 택시 드라이버(Taxi Driver, 1976) 베트남 전쟁 종전 직후를 배경으로 한 <택시 드라이버>는 불면증에 시달리며 뉴욕 맨해튼의 뒷골목에서 택시를 운전하는 트래비스 비클의 이야기다. 매일 느끼는 허무함을 해소하고자 포르노 극장을 찾으며 소모적인 삶을 이어가고, 점차 세상에 대한 경멸과 분노가 확대되는 한 남자의 방황과 혼란을 담아낸 영화. 광기 어린 로버트 드니로의 연기와 가장 서민적이면서 평범한 우리의 일상을 비춘 영화는 <조커>의 열풍이 불면서 다시금 떠오르기도 했다. 🎬 성난 황소(Raging Bull, 1980) 실제 미국의 프로 복서이자 미들급 챔피언이었던 제이크 라모타의 회고록을 원작으로 한 <성난 황소>. 인간의 흥망성쇠를 고스란히 담아낸 영화는 흑백임에도 마틴 스코세이지의 연출력과 배우들 덕에 피의 색이 선명히 보이는 듯하다. 지독한 질투심에 휩싸인 사람이 어떻게 나락으로 떨어질 수 있는지를 적나라하게 그린 작품. 비극적인 상황에서 극적으로 빛을 발하는 감동적인 인생성공기와 달리, 사건과 인물의 관계 속에서 감정을 표현하는 데 초첨을 맞추며 한 인물의 처절한 삶을 나타내 손꼽히는 걸작이다. 🎬 좋은 친구들(Goodfellas, 1990) 갱스터 무비의 명작이라 불리는 <좋은 친구들>은 범죄의 심연에 빠지면서 점차 막장으로 치닫는 갱스터들의 스토리를 그려냈다. 마피아 세계를 동경하는 헨리가 그들과 같이 되고자 하지만, 배신이 난무하는 치졸한 갱스터 세계. 어두운 조폭들의 삶을 디테일하게 나타낸 작품은 마틴 스코세이지 특유의 심리 연출과 장면 곳곳에 비현실적인 음악적 요소를 접목해 더욱 극적으로 담아냈다. 🎬 갱스 오브 뉴욕(Gangs Of New York, 2002) 1840년대 뉴욕 최고의 슬럼가 파이브 포인츠. 이곳에 사는 원주민들과 부와 권력을 빼앗아갈 침입자라 여기는 아일랜드 이주민들의 전쟁을 다룬 <갱스 오브 뉴욕>. 영화는 폭동 속 결국 폭력과 살인밖에 남지 않은 모습으로 당시 분열된 사회상을 가감 없이 비췄다. 자유의 대명사로 일컬어지는 미국이지만, 배척과 불평등이 만연한 현실을 마틴 스코세이지 시선으로 적나라하게 그려낸 것. 🎬 셔터 아일랜드(Shutter Island, 2010) 중범죄자들이 수감된 셔터 아일랜드 정신병원에서 환자가 실종되는 사건이 발생해 함께 그곳으로 향하는 연방보안관 테디 다니엘스와 그의 동료. 고립된 섬에서 점차 괴이한 일들에 휩싸이는 영화는 후반부 최종 국면을 향해 전개되면서 생각지도 못한 강렬한 반전미가 등장한다. 긴박감을 주는 카메라 워킹에 빛과 그림자의 활용. 더불어 주인공의 명연기가 더해져 지금까지도 반전 영화의 대명사로 대표되는 작품. 이처럼 수많은 명작을 남긴 마틴 스코세이지는 그만의 창작열로 오랜 세월 그리고 지금까지도 큰 영향력을 미치고 있다. 대표적인 갱스터부터 다큐멘터리, 시대극 등 다방면으로 해도 장르와 스타일을 아우르는 그. 그의 영화 속 주인공은 이탈리아계 이민자인 경우가 다반사였는데, 마틴 스코세이지 본인의 뿌리에 바탕을 둔 것으로 아메리칸 드림을 다룬 영화가 지배적이던 할리우드에 환상을 부수며 새로운 시각을 선보인 결과다. 때론, ‘마블은 테마파크에 불과하다’는 말로 화제가 되기도 하며, 흥행에만 목적을 둔 흥미 위주의 작과 서사없는 블록버스터 장르 자체가 극장을 지배하고 있는 사실을 신랄히 비판하기도. 앞서 소개한 영화 외에도 최고 흥행작 <더 울프 오브 월 스트리트>와 <에비에이터> 등 그의 명작들은 무궁무진하다. 한국 영화사의 새 지평을 쓴 봉준호와 그에게 많은 영감을 주었던 마틴 스코세이지. 영화사의 과거와 현재 그리고 미래를 함께 이끌어나갈 이들의 앞으로를 더욱 기대해보자. 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서

What Was Your First Fandom?
There's nothing like your first. Vingle is awesome because it feels like no matter how obscure my fandom is, there's always someone else here who's into it! So let's take a trip down nostalgia lane and find out how it all began... The Superwholock fandom Did you dive headfirst into the wonderful wild world of Supernatural, Doctor Who, or Sherlock? I was away from fandom for a while, but some amazing Sherlock fic brought me back in. And you all know how that went! Now it's all fanfiction all the time here! Anime fandom I know there are a lot of you out there! The first fic I ever read was anime (and trust me, you don't want to know about the fic that I *wrote*. It was a monstrosity). Lord of the Rings fandom If you speak Elvish, you have my respect. The Marvel/DC fandom Superhero movies seem like they're here to stay. Whether it was Marvel or DC, Daredevil or the Dark Knight, you're gonna have a lot of fun in the coming years! And of course I'll be right there with you. Star Wars fandom I'm so happy for you all. I know Sherlockians have been called the fandom that waited... but you all really waited, didn't you? The Fandom that Lives Harry Potter is definitely a global fandom, and we haven't seen the likes of it before or since. The first fandom Star Trek inspired fandom as we know it today. The fic, the cons, the culture... to use an inappropriate quote "I was alone and I owe you so much". WAS THERE A FANDOM I MISSED??? If so please don't think I love you any less! In fact I probably want to know all about it. Share your first fandom experience!!! Were you a livejournaler in the days of Cassie Clare? Did you get sucked into Tumblr during Mishagate? Or were you one of the old school fans subscribing to zines in the mail? Or hey, is Vingle the first place you've let yourself fan the freak out? That would be awesome too. Let's get excited about our first fandoms!!!
Disney Princesses Singing In Their Native Languages
English is not the native tongue of Disney Princesses. Everyone has grown up with Disney Princesses because they are the most innocent form of childhood entertainment. With the fantastic movies comes even better songs which make them so appealing. Your infatuation with them carries on into adulthood and before you know it, you're sitting in your living room watching the movies singing along with your own children. Crazy right? Well, here's the thing, English is the default language, not the native one. All Disney Princesses have come from other countries other than Pocahontas who was a Native American in North America (present day USA). It brings up a really interesting change because when you watch the Disney movies in their native languages, it has an entirely new meaning because it's authentically and historically correct. Disney Americanizes our movies through using English and we forget that languages play a huge role in presenting emotions, interactions, conversations, and without a doubt, our singing. One of the biggest trends on the internet is hearing a Disney Princess sing her hit song with her own native finesse instead of a defaulted English one. Enjoy and really take notice on the differences in emphasis and fluidity of the lyrics. Because of changed language, the songs also have different lyrics to fit the melody which slightly alters the song even if it has a similar universal meaning. Disney is genius. What do you think?
