"I have two (scars), from a surgery I had to correct misshapen cartilage I was born with. I had a bar put in when I was 14. It stayed there for two years to support my sternum, so my heart and lungs wouldn’t be crushed. I don’t really want them to (disappear). They make me feel like a survivor." (danny mahealani for anon)
And the Waltz Goes On - Anthony Hopkins
Sir Anthony Hopkins Hears The Waltz He Wrote 50 Years Ago For The First Time
Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was a musician before he got into acting. 50 years ago he wrote a waltz but was too afraid to ever hear it play. Dutch violinist André Rieu performs it for the very first time. Watch Hopkins’ reaction.
That was beautiful
I cried a few tears and felt better about humanity’s endeavors.
That as absolutely spectacular and ornate. I as well was brought to tears
Screw the article links for the moment: this is too extraordinary not to reblog right now.
Hopkins’s reactions as it plays through would have been worth the entire price of admission. And whoever did the orchestration should be congratulated for not going for anything small. (But then Rieu’s shindigs always lean toward the spectacular anyway: “small” would be out of place.)

So a boyband walked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage and everyone thought they were going to sing One Direction or something typical…and then they sung Stars from Les Miserables.
This is the best thing ever. Just listen to those harmonies <3
Here is what happened at WonderCon today: the line for the Dark Horse Whedonverse comics panel went out of the building and wrapped around the balcony outside, so we were all circled up staring at each other like we’re in a wagon train or something.
A guy pulls out a guitar, and his companion starts singing along with the Firefly theme song. A few people in line sing with them, and when the song is over, there is some applause. “Shall we do another one?” the guy asks.
"YES!" yells the line.
And that is how an entire balcony full of people started singing Hero of Canton.
Then the line started moving, and we all marched into the building still singing.
