The U-U-United States Tour dates for R-Ramin Karimloo have b-b-been announced and he’s coming to
(September can’t come soon enough, sweetChrist).
Interviewer: “Ever considered going on a US Tour?”
Ramin: “Yeah for sure, we’re workin’ on it now aren’t we sir?”
Interviewer: “Yeah? Ok, so stay tuned for that, guys! Um…”
Ramin: “AND CANADA! ‘Cause I know we’re gonna get that: ‘what about Canada?!’ OF COURSE CANADA!”
You don’t even know how happy that last bit made me.
COME TO TORONTO RAMIN. <3 :’3
Ramin: “Yeah, I do love shopping for clothes, I think… I think its fun! Its fun to dress up.
… Like a man!”
And he says he’s not funny, whattheheck. xD
Interviewer: “So you got married young; when was your first kiss?”
Ramin: “Maybe… mid teens? I think? I must’ve been 12, yeah.”
Interviewer: “12 years old, wow. … I think I was playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at 12 years old.”
Ramin: “Yeah, I was probably doing that at the time! PAUSE! *smoochy face*”
I guess I missed Ramin’s webchat live because of school.
Well, I guess I’m watching it recorded.
I really hope my parents don’t walk downstairs to check on me when Final Lair rolls around in the 25th. Its already happened when I watched the livestreamed Earl
Heartbreaker Carpenter show a few months ago; pretty sure they could hear my sobs from upstairs.
God its already at the All I Ask of You Reprise.
Just take my heart, and shatter it into tiny pieces, Ramin.
I’m watching it again (third time this week, what else is new?) and I’ve noticed this before but I wasn’t really sure what to make of it until now. Its really small, but a bit specific to not wonder about.
Anyways basically when the Phantom main theme is being sung by Christine and the Phantom, at the point where they sing, In all your fantasties, you always knew that man and mystery - were both in you, ‘interesting thing: when Sierra sings, - were both in you, Ramin is staring at her intently and does this short little nod. He does this sort of nod a lot during the show (or a quick shake of the head; its a Phantom idiosyncrasy he made in order to, I assume, make the Phantom seem so blinded by his desires that he’s sure of things. A quick nod means that he’s right, of course. A quick shake would be like ‘No, you’re lying and I won’t accept it’ (he does that a few times during Final Lair).
Anyways, back to the point at hand. He does this small nod when Christine sings this line, and its this line that defines the Phantom as both a man and mysterious and powerful creature (man and mystery). When he nods at that point, if this is what he intended, it feels like he’s reassuring himself that he at last has Christine within his grasp. She had come down with him to his Lair, if through a little force, and she knows that he is both an Angel and a man. He believes she considers him both a God she cannot resist and merely a man she could come to understand and love. She is his, and he is certain of that because he is so blinded.
All that from a small nod of the head; I love interpreting stuff like this. All these different Phantoms bring something different to the table with each show; its very interesting!
Spoilers for those who haven’t seen it.
ENTER THE PHANTOM
Idc what others say; Ramin did a great job in this role, in my opinion.
I must’ve watched Ramin’s ‘Coming Home’ music video about five times in the past week; its a lovely song and the PV’s pretty sharp too.
If only I wasn’t so broke in February; I’d preorder your album in a heartbeat.
