Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who wrote the scores for “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Aladdin” and many more, once handed a hundred dollar tip to a college kid doing an acoustic medley of his songs at a coffee shop.
“Just look at your songs / aren’t they neat? Wouldn’t you think your collection’s complete?” Criss sang, reworking the lyrics to Menken’s “Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid.” “Wouldn’t you think you’re the guy, the guy who has everything?”
The medley concluded with an appearance from the voice of Jasmine herself, Lea Salonga.
“I used to play for pennies at a cafe at the University of Michigan,” Criss explained from stage. “I was just ruining ‘Part of Your World’ when Alan comes in. I was just mortified!”
There are lots of reasons we’re excited to be launching the Obama 2012 campaign’s new Tumblr today. But mostly it’s because we’re looking at this as an opportunity to create something that’s not just ours, but yours, too.
Looketh at my blog. Looketh at my blog! Ist this a bovveréd blog thou seest before thee?
I ain’t even bovveréd, though! Blog? Bovveréd? Dashboard? Bovveréd? My Karp, I be not bovveréd, forsooth. You take the servers down and I take your ass to town. Bovveréd? Blog? I ain’t even bovveréd. Errors? ‘Sorry’s? I ain’t even bovveréd.
Site is far more blue than my emotions are blue, If text be white, why then my reblogs are done. If notes be not counted, no counts are added to a reblog thread. I have seen theme backgrounds red and white, But no such colors do thy tumbeasts seek. And in some scrolling is there more delight, Than in the fandom arguments when my dashboard reeks. I love to hear my own typing, yet well I know That audio posts have a far more pleasing sound. I grant I never saw a website so slow, My laptop when I browse wants tumblr treats found. And yet by all other social networking sites, I think my love as rare, As any belied with false compare.
