Don’t forget that the church was literally so impressed they gave him a medal instead of imprisoning him or executing him
Mozart only needed to hear a piece once to play it better than the original. And on top of that, they believed all his music to have been created by someone else, not this kid, so they locked him in a tower for a period of time (forget how long) with only music paper. When they came back all the paper was filled and he had written on the walls as well. AND ALL THE MUSIC WAS PHENOMENAL. how much more perfect can you get than Mozart? If you want to know more: watch the movie Amadeus. It’s historically accurate but also funny at times. Watch. it.

And for those of you that would like to hear the first illegally downloaded song that the Vatican kept a secret for so long because it was “too beautiful for human knowledge” You can find it here.

a book I never get tired of reading: phantom of the opera
a musical I never get tired of seeing: phantom of the opera
a music score I never get tired of listening to: phantom of the opera
Look what I found. Been doing major research for a project. I’ve been delving back into parisian newspapers and look what I’ve found! Real advertisements for performances of Faust, Bal Masque, the accident at Palais Garnier that inspired Leroux’s chandelier crash, and the first publication of Le Fantome de l’Opera! So beautiful!!

rumpelstiltskinned I can see this happen. The Daroga winking and saying, “So Erik… I’ve always had an interest in the violin. Perhaps you can teach me how to… pluck a fiddle, so to speak.” And Erik’s like “You’re a booby with no talent! I’m not doing it!”
"Erik, the harem girls were in erotic poses today. It made me think of you."
"Fuck your sarcasm."
"Erik, join me for another cup of tea today? I do so enjoy… our time." Purr.
"No. I have a life, you booby."
"Erik, let’s sleep together."
"I don’t sleep."
"Erik, I like you."
"Erik likes you too and you don’t hear him saying it every minute. You’re such a booby. You booby."
"I’m trying to flirt, damn it!"
