Go to Starbucks. Order coffee for “Prisoner 24601”
When they call out your order, jump up and yell “My name is Jean Valjean!”
And if the barista replies with “AND I’M JAVERT,” you tip that motherfucker so hard
you tip them right over the edge of a bridge
you fucking didn’t
THE ONE IN THE WHITE TOWEL THOUGH

THE BEST JOKE IN EXISTENCE
GOD I JUST TOLD SOMEONE ABOUT THIS STORY
This is one of the best pieces of comedy that I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing. I love this. I have been looking for this online for awhile.
John Mulaney is fucking hysterical
I will never get tired of this joke.
Poe’s Law: That moment when a Fox Business commentator sounds just like a Disney villain.
ugh i want to get really uncomfortably rich and then just. go around and anonymously donate huge amounts of money to people for things like HEY youre trying to move away from your abusive parents?? BAM 10 thousand mystery dollars oh whats that your dog needs surgery?? BAM paid for hey you cant afford to go to that con with your friends?? BAM better get your cosplay ready you fucking nerd
you want to be jean valjean
Uuh… it’s hard to explain, it’s a burden that just appears out of nowhere and fucks you up for days. Ignoring it is not easy. It takes over you and even tends to distort your perception of reality turning it into a living nightmare. It’s awful and terrifying.
A large, quiet room and standing there is Thrall, Malfurion, Garrosh and Varian, assembled in a group of other notable male NPCs from World of Warcraft.
Among the confused whispers, they don’t notice the doors close behind them.

im so glad I woke up this morining
The phrase “words to live by” gets thrown around often these days, but these are absolutely words to live by.
for those of you who speak french, i just came across the most incredible site, which allows you to see the evolution of les misérables throughout the composition process.
first, it provides full & downloadable pdf versions of the brick in three stages of completion:
- the first draft, before any corrections or additions (“Rédaction(s) initiale(s)”)
- the 1848 draft, known as les misères, which hugo then put aside for more than a decade (”Les Misères”)
- the final, “established” text of the novel (Les Misérables)
as if that weren’t cool enough, there’s also a function that allows you to see what hugo changed from version to version, as well as compare chapters across all three editions. for example, here’s "un groupe qui a failli devenir historique" ("a group that barely missed becoming historic"), featuring “thomas,” aka, marius’s original name in hugo’s first draft:
i’m sure the old school brick fans already know about this site, but i thought it wouldn’t hurt to share. i hope you guys find it as awesome as i do!
omg I need to brush up on my french now.
I think it’s very important that we all remember just how hilariously disco the Original French Concept orchestration is. I just imagine Enjolras singing this and groovily swaying his head and sexily smirking at the camera. And disco lights, obviously.
I love the concept album so much you always know Enjolras is somewhere nearby when the disco starts. Every. Single. Time.
Reblogging on Request: DISCO ENJOLRAS.
My fave thing about disco Enjolras: guessing they did it that way because, like, so I’ve gathered from meta that the Brick posits him as the priest of the glorious revolutionary tomorrow? And at the time the concept album came about, disco was probably the most futuristic music the composers could imagine. Like his sheer force of personality forces the score into anachronism.
Which kind of suggests that if the concept album had been written today, his every appearance would be intro’d with dubstep:
"LAMARQUE IS DEAD"
WOM WOM W-W-WOMMMMMMMM
The best part is you can do it in any era. In the later 1980’s, it’s like WHY IS THE SCORE SUDDENLY ALL NEW WAVE DANCE POP, OH WAIT PROBABLY ENJOLRAS IS ABOUT TO SING ABOUT THE FUTURE.
In the 1910’s, Enjolras walks on and SURPRISE RAGTIME PIANO SOLO.
