  1. I think that little bit of insecurity is sexy and charming...that he doesn't think so highly of himself when it's not warranted or...in his mind, true! Yeah... he worked hard for that incredible body...that's also what is so amazing...not just "the body"..but the hard work and dedication it took to get it! I like a little modesty in a guy....very endearing quality! Madamina....your siggy is giving me "Gerrybumps"!!!! and shivers!!! but I love them...That's sooo strange...I've never 'gotten' goosebumps or shivers from a guy that I actually know...what's up with that!....How come a guy I can't have makes me so happy...and the guys I can have make me so miserable???? I love being happy! Miserable sucks!!! LOL!!!
  2. I'm just experimenting with the editor cause cyber traffic seems slow right now...I need the practice..also experimenting with cropping & thumbnail size....if anyone has any hints or tips I sure could use some! I love the contrast of colors...white, black, red, green & flesh. The light shining on the mask and the shadows in the stone wall. I wonder how G prepared for this scene...what is he thinking right at this moment...not Phantom...but G...The Phantom seems so young, bewildered, and betrayed...Gerry is a genius...his incredible talent...this scene is so hushed, and yet bursting at the seams with passionate emotions...with stereo-headphones you can hear the faintest little breeze ...soft crunching of footstep on snow...gentle rustle of his cape...slight breathing... the snow falling....and the pounding of his heart...as it slowly breaks .....It's so quiet...and lonely.... Gerry made it rather easy for us to know... and feel...what the Phantom was feeling...second by second....one emotion to the next...all while singing at the same time...amazing... You can click him...it's ok! 'Maiden of the Mirrors, Wondering Angel of the Lair'
  3. Hi mina! Yeah I notice when G seems anxious or nervous, whatever, his voice is a little higher pitched....but his natural, comfortable voice seems lower...I like that! I have to focus on my own voice to keep it lower...or I'll irritate the hell out of everyone! LOL! but I learned how to do that a long time ago...when I realized I was stuck sounding like a 12 year old I wasn't going to out grow it! Plus I was nasal from bing in the water so much...just took lots of practice & focus...My acting teacher in HS tried to help me ....but when we would be face to face...him soo serious...I couldn't help giggling...I was hopeless! but then he couldn't stop giggling either...that was the funny part! I LOVE your new siggy...those Are the eyes to die for!
  4. Hey Judy! Isn't all the opera talk wonderful! Kinda like the scene in POTO...with all the commotion, and actors, and musicians, etc...running around...La Carlotta...Piangi...I love it all...it's like another universe! I liked your word "phrends"...cool!
  5. Hey Erica! Wondered where you were and if all is OK! Miss you when you don't come by! I was gonna ask about your website, but I'll save it for later...Love ya..

  6. OMG!!! Look!! I just found this in the gallery!...Stef just posted them today!!! They are from Bloomingdale's November 19th, 2004!!! I love this...Emmy is so pretty here...I love her hair like that....Ger is so handsome...and Patrick looks pretty good also! This was about the time I first heard about POTO being made into a movie!...Yeah!...Thanksgiving time! I saw the trailer on an over head tv in the saloon where I was bartending...Fell in love with his voice then & there forever!!! How long was that trailer? Less than 72 seconds??? I'm sooo excited...click it!
  7. Ok!!! I'm going with Madamina on this one!!! She works with them (professional singers) and knows singing (she's a singer also)...and if she's knowledgeable and brave enough to uhmmm... disagree with.... ALW...then Yeah!...Told ya I loved those audacious egos!!! Cool!!! Only in Operaaaa! It's sooo awfully hot here it's hard to think or concentrate... I've been trying to construct my own little blog/web page on myspace...just to help Butlerize the Universe (yeah...I've gone beyond the world...don't want to intrude on mina's domain...I think I've gone "Plaid"!...I wanna 'kilt' the kosmos...) But I have no clue what I'm doing...I only have an account set up...but that's all...nothing there yet...just experimenting right now. But soon...The Universe Will Know...G rules! How's that??? Too Grand??? I get like that sometimes...... OK...guess I'll go look for a cool Phantom pic.... How about really handsome Phantom....in a boat... He's sooo clickable... PS If anyone has any advice on web/blog sites...feel free to PM me! I would really like to know how to link to Gals from my page...is that allowed? And I'm having a hard time getting some of Erica's youtube vids to load....I would love to showcase those.....
  8. Wow!!! Mina!...I left a comment there...Butlerizing the Masses...You really should be G's publicist is all I gotta say....genius....
  9. Madamina...I love every piece of opera tidbit you bring...it's the only real culture I get these days and I miss it! You have given me an avenue to explore something I truly enjoy!!! Baritenor...I love it...see there...never heard of that before....now I feel just a little bit smarter! I wouldn't call going tenor an upgrade though....but that's just me....the lower voice just makes me melt into a little puddle....I thought G was baritonish...but ALW says he's a 'rock' tenor...so there ya go...whatever it is G's deeper voice just makes my head swirl...I can see why Christine fainted!!! I haven't met one boring person in this Lair...everyone does bring something different and inspiring...can you imagine if we all talked the same, or posted the same pictures all the time, or whatever...Yeah...it's all bout G, and POTO, and there's always something new to be discovered, related or shared....but it's about us, also,....we share the same deep G connection...for me that never gets old or boring....and if you read really fast....I don't talk as long.... gonna go see how mina is Butlerizing the world.....always interesting, mina!
  10. Hey! Hi Phantom of the Operabouffe! And Hi! Judy! I come bearing a gift...nothing new that you haven't seen before...watched NOWL with headphones on...and I love that you can hear the dripping water, and when he runs his hand in the lake...so many little sounds...in this picture you can hear him sigh...barely...but it's there...just like the end where it sounds like he's 'bout to cry....I love this video and the song.... wish I had more to offer...but it's getting late for now...hope every one is doing ok! Above 100 degrees tomorrow here.....first day of summer! And I'm already toooo tan, not good, not good! LOL! Never thought I'd hear myself say that! Swann...I used to live & work in Vegas(cocktailserver at the Hacienda)...it's very easy to get sick, & worn out there...especially if youre not used to all the walking around...you don't realize how much you have to walk there...it's easy to over do... Hey Madamina!! Did I say I love Bass Baritones? I love Bass Baritones...something so masculine about a deep voice....your Erwin sounds awesome.... I love that picture of Erik at the organ...and the squishyroseinface...poor Erik....
  11. Hi Emily! That's so funny....we were posting our poems at the same time!!!! I love your poem...very sweet...and the rhyming flows beautifully!
  12. Wow! Swann...those are some awesome pictures you posted!!!! I saw the post you put up for G...Soulprints...so touching!!! and then I noticed the time...at 12am I wrote this....but I was staying at my Dad's so wasn't able to post it.... I haven't even edited it yet... You were just a young Lad from that fine Scottish nation… And without knowing or trying…became an icon of inspiration! The way it played out…you could not have imagined… The story passed down…is practically Legend! After seven long years…youth and energy spent… A Solicitor's life you were not meant… As luck would have it and the powers that be… You would soon discover your true destiny In a coffee shop… in London… and nothing to lose… A friend with a proposal you couldn't refuse… Theater and acting would set your heart free… Thank goodness… and the rest is history… You broke our hearts with your Phantom…you dared to sing… And then again…as the doomed Spartan King… Your life is now that of Fame & Celebrity… But in our hearts you will always be… That fine young Lad… from that fine Scottish nation… our beloved icon ….of great inspiration…
  13. Hi mina!!! Yeah...I saw that the sets were designed by Maria...I think that's so cool....I think she was only 53 when she died...one year older than me now....I think that's sad....but your mate looks ...ummmm....sorta sehks-sey....but I would love to hear his voice...for real on the stage....cause he looks like he might have an even sehks-sey-er voice! I believe I heard he was a baritone..... Love the chandelier! I think you should design G's apt.
  14. This is the face you have when you realize you actually threw a pizza at someone....and missed! this is the face you have when you realize only you get to clean up the mess!!!
  15. Ummmm....how did you know I lost my temper 'once' and threw a slice of pizza at my putz ex...of course he ducked....and it hit the pure white wall...and stuck there!!!....I wasn't in any mood to clean it up then & there.....I think that's when I also said the F-bomb....I don't give a f**king.. flying... rat's tail!!!!!!!!!!! Of course he thought that was hysterical also.....it was sooo long ago....he's still a putz!....... one of the very few times I've ever lost my temper...and what does this have to do with POTO?????...I'll be back......
  16. OMG!!! I thought that little red flying thing was a strawberry! Guess I'm pretty good at dodging it otherwise I would've known it was a tomato! LOL!!! I saw that video Swann...very touching.....and well made!
  17. xmargx....too phookin phunny!!! Yeah!...that's an awesome description!
  18. In fairness....I've never seen the live stage version either....only bits & pieces that have been recorded on video....but still not moved by what I saw/heard...kept hoping that eventually they would find different actors....and it could be it's more of a physical irritation to my ears....high pitched sounds irritate the h*ll out of me....LOL! Like trying to listen to La Carlotta...I can imagine Phantom with his hands over his ears...agony!...agony!....Why don't they listen to ME!!! There is only one voice in this opera house that is worthy to sing....and that voice emanates from the throat of Christine!!!!
  19. Hi Dawn...Mistress of the Lair & Voice of the Morning Light.... I think I'm the only one who doesn't like MC's voice!....And I tried...I really tried cause I love the Music so much....but tenors for the most part really irritate my ears! I have the stage music on CD....and I am not moved either by MC or Sarah....both of them are to high pitched for me....and I love to listen to these songs LOUD! I love Emmy's, Patrick's, & G's voices though...they seem so fresh and young and... not as polished (I love that!)....in fact I can't stand to listen to the stage version anymore....now that's being really spoiled for any other....for those who saw the Vegas version...how was the Raoul character? And Mdm. Giry....not my faves on the stage version CD either....ALW's music is so beautiful...the music and the words always move me....but not the performances for some reason......it just doesn't have That Magical Element that the movie has...for me anyway......
  20. it would be Heaven to embrace... the tormented, beautiful face... to feel heated breath from parted lips... taste the salty tear...as down his cheek it slips... and kiss away all the heartache and fears... 'caused by so many lonely years... an Angel on Earth deserves more than this... his first...a virgin's...sweet, tender kiss... the powers that be...great power they wield... thought the Angel's fate they had sealed... but in my dreams I do all that I can... to help my Earthly Angel ...become a Heavenly Man! Oh!..Wow....that's an awesome photo...you two look soo good together...and I love the color of your dress Swann....you look great in that dress! You sure do have a handsome man there!
  21. Hey Swann...I can't see any American actress playing Cathy....I would rather like to see the British talent...and I'm limited in knowlege as to the British female actresses....But someone who can play young and sweet...and then dark and psychotic also...cause that's how Cathy is...just as dark and depressing...vengeful...as Heathcliff at times...For me it's hard to have sympathy for either one of them...because they allow things to happen...and then blame every one...and everything...except themselves...but that's just my take on the story....brooding men are fine...as long as they find the wherewithall to snap out of it! I just don't tolerate that personality....Now Phantom...was always trying to learn and find away to have Christine love him...it wasn't enough just to 'have' her in his life...he wanted her love and acceptance...I believe...and he was willing to find out what it was that she wanted and needed...it was always a learning experience for him....he never settled for brooding...No...he get's busy and writes an Opera!!!.... Hi xmargx!!!! Yeah! Sometimes I wonder about that Bronte gal.....
  22. ME!!! I want to be Cathy! Cause I don't like the Cathy in the book...Tooo weak & wishy washy for me...but that's not how that story is written either....I like Jane Eyre's character a whole lot better..sweet...but anything but weak! Personally I have found it impossible to find an equally as strong and fearless a personality as mine in a guy...I love the confident ego...with the underlying slightly insecure one...but not dull and not the kind that gives up!...Gotta go ladies...Father's Day! My Dad...there's my fearless Hero!...(even tho I know better..he has those little insecurities just like every one else!)......In my alternate ending...Erik realizes that he was destined to have Christine in his life....but she was not his destiny!...She was the catalyst for greater things he would achieve....and Raoul and Christine became his secret Guardians...they help him on his quest to fulfill his true destiny!
  23. My Gosh!!! I love waking up to this!!!! Thank you xmargx for your riveting and emotional account...I love your writing style...it's like you're in the same room conversing....cool! Emily....that poem came to you very quickly!....I knew there was a reason I chose that picture!...You gave your poem a very nice Lair Gal fantasy ending....I love that....You are definitely the loving Innocent Angel of the Lair!!! You make Erik feel better! xmargx....I would never want Erik to let himself be captured....that would've been death for him!..I love to think he had a master plan of escape....and continued his life's adventure somewhere beyond the Paris Opera House....he still had a lot to learn...about life and love...and himself....and he's just too strong of character and ego to give up and fade away...that would be a tragic waste of a perfectly good man...no matter what his face looked like.....out in the real world there would be others just like him...outcast and lonely...if I were to write a story....he would encounter these people...especially children....and with his ingenuity and talent....maybe build an orphanage & hospital for them....and maybe gain some form of respect from society as a great humanist....or something that....
  24. xmargx Wow....did I just quote the right way?.....Please don't tell me it was That easy!!! Duh!!!
  25. Gosh! Emily!....That is very insightful and mature....not in an 'old' way...but in an innocently wise way....you are a very sensitive person....aware of the emotions around you it seems....I loved your poem Emily....and it wasn't too long at all! I was getting ready to post this picture....so now I'll post it for you....I've been experimenting with thumbnails & color saturation, etc...hope it looks ok...here goes... maybe he'll inspire another poem!!! This is when he says "Christine...I love...you....." He's clickable...
