It Is Evident That I Have Far Too Much Time On My Hands

...but then, that's not actually true, so I'm not sure what IS evident other than the fact that I'm too easily amused.

Let's Have a Celebration...

...because today, oh friends of the ABC, Les Miserables is released on DVD.  RING OUT THE BELLS UPON THIS DAY OF DAYS!  L'chaim, l'chaim, to life!  I'm so happy I could MELT!

So in honor of this auspicious occasion, I'm hosting yet another contest here on Sink Me!... and no, it's not Les-Mis-themed.  Well, it includes Les Mis but it's not JUST Les Mis.  The idea is simple: find a quote you like from a musical (spoken dialogue or a song lyric) and pair it with a complementary picture from another musical.  Oh, and it has to be funny.  If you're not sure what I'm talking about, see the examples below...

This one features a picture from Phantom of the Opera (the 25th Anniversary production at the Royal Albert Hall) and a quote from The King and I.  It is funny because the squirrel gets dead Carlotta really DOES look like... well, a cupcake.  :P

The quote here is from West Side Story, and the picture is from Fiddler on the Roof-- and in this case, Hodel and Perchik actually do get married, so I suppose it's not really relevant.  Moving on.

The creme de la creme, in my humble opinion.  :D  This is really only funny because the quote at the top is from "Dancing Through Life," Fiyero's song in Wicked, and Aaron Tveit (Enjolras in the bottom picture) played Fiyero on Broadway and got an award for Best Stage Dancer of 2009 or whatever it was called, so... yeah.  I think I over-explained that one.

But you get the idea.

Post your entries (up to four per person) on your blog and leave me a link in the comments of this post, or email your entries to missdashwood95[AT]gmail[DOT]com.  I reserve the right to disqualify any entry that I deem family-unfriendly.  The contest will be open until Friday, March 29th, at which time I'll choose ten finalists (or twelve if I can't make up my mind... or less than ten if there aren't enough entries...) and post a poll so y'all can choose the winner.

Happy mash-up-ing!

For Your Presence of Mind, For the Deed You Have Done...

Having not yet seen the movie, I don't know if the scene where Valjean rescues Enjolras from the sniper actually appears in the final version, but it's there in the play ("First Attack"), and I simply couldn't resist.

So If You Care to Find Me, Look to the Western Barricade...

And on a note completely unrelated to Marius' levitating horse... Sink Me! has reached 100 followers! *confetti*

Count Rugen Wishes You A Happy Daylight Savings Time

I didn't make this, and many of you have probably seen it before, but I couldn't pass it up.
