Rufus Wainwright review 'Gloriously melodramatic'

Theatre Royal Drury Lane, London With only a grand piano and his wits, the usually maximalist singer's majestic melodies and soaring choruses are balanced by raw, confessional material "The great thing about touring without a band," says Rufus Wainwright, seated on his piano stool in a glittery jacket and satin silver trousers like an art-house Liberace, "is that you don't have to pay anybody ...

Make It Come Alive, But Not Like Frankenstein

Stacy in Chalk by Rob Liberace, chalk pencil drawing, 14 x 22. I wholeheartedly believe that a drawing of a human figure should look like it has the potential for physical movement and action. Not a creepy, unnatural animation, but more of a direct relation to the actual human form. Our bodies are always on the verge of moving and repositioning. Sometimes it is a faint movement like taking a ...

Questions About Liberace on Quora

Questions About Liberace

reddit: the front page of the internet

I am a twentyseven year old lady who is awful at geography. Just terrible.. But tonight, in the space of two hours, I successfully memorised just under thirty countries and their locations. I am pretty bloody pleased with myself..

Basically used a combination of word association (I'd take a country, try and figure out what it sort of looked like, and relate that to the name.. So Turkey could sort of look like a mangled key, hence 'Duh Key') and a free geography quiz app. Apparently, in regards to word association and memory, the ruder/worse they are, the more likely they are to stick - so apologies in advance if I've offended any female crabs. Or other people.

1st round on quiz, 0 out of 50.

2nd round on quiz, 18 out of 50.

3rd round on quiz, 49 out of 50 (got caught out on stupid Namibia.)

Here's a list of my word associations -

Indonesia - in done easy - bird with sunglasses, about to be cooked, but seems pretty cool with it.

Turkey - Duh key - mangled, stupid looking key

Vietnam - screaming man

Niger - wider - wide whale

Tanzania - tanning here - profile face to sun, getting a tan.

Peru - jump through - a rabbit jumping.. Through something..?

Venezuela - sway her - crab with fist, possibly about to hit a female crab, to sway her away from something.

Nambia - naan beat her - naan bread in robes with club.

Saudi Arabia - sting ray wave at ya - waving stingray

Bangladesh - bang le dash - man running away after banging something.

Phillipines - Phillip needs - man (Phillip) reaching for something he needs.

Colombia - climb up ya - fat man climbing.

Algeria - ow diarrea - toilet silhouette

Iran - rude man - fat man sticking up two fingers.

Burma - burn ya - finger pointing after an insult 'Ooo, buuuurn!'

Libya - Liberace - looks a bit like sideways Liberace profile.

Ethiopia - eeky!pika! - Scared pokemon, pointing in direction of danger

Pakistan - birdy sang - happy singing bird

Chad - Chad - Beligerant looking young man from the 50s, called 'Chad'

Mauritania - mad shaped container - oddly shaped container, opening in top right.

Nigeria - nice to see ya - Crocodile greeting Chad and saying 'Nice to see ya'

Argentina - argue Tina - a squirrel having an argument with Tina, holding up his hand ('paw') and trying to stop the arguing.

Kenya - Enya - profile of lady (probably Enya) with a hair bun, singing.

Thailand - tie land - woman throwing away a tie, because they have too many ties in Thailand.

Bolivia - boner liver - no idea what this looks like, so just tried to come up with a really stupid name. Bolivia, you have a stupid shape.

Sudan - sup man - fat mans hand doing a downward fistbump with thumb and pinky out.

Angola - And..! GOALA! - Two men celebrating a goal in football, one of them is pointing.

Mongolia - mon, go learn - man flying off to learn new things, mouth open to swallow up knowledge.

Mali - Mali - Puppy named 'Mali', who has a huge, triangular shaped head, with a relatively small body. Mali is an odd dog.

Has anyone seen Behind the Candelabra yet?

It premiered on HBO on Sunday, and I just watched it last night. I was blown away. I've always been a big Steven Soderbergh fan and this might up there with his best work, in my opinion. I know that he had been trying to make this film for years. The acting, both by Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as Scott Thorson, was phenomenal. Seriously, Michael Douglas is an absolute powerhouse. And I really love seeing Soderbergh and Damon working together again; I was a big fan of The Informant! Not to mention some great performances by Rob Lowe and Dan Aykroyd.

What stood out to me the most was the control that Soderbergh held over the tone of the film. It's relatively light hearted and fun for the first half, despite us seeing Scott Thorson throwing his identity away for a lavish lifestyle provided by Liberace. There's a lot of humor infused into otherwise serious situations. Not to say Liberace is depicted as some monster. He's not. You see a very real, poignant, albeit completely fucked up, relationship between the two. The film doesn't try to cast judgement on its characters. It just shows, what I would call the rise and fall, of the tow main characters' relationship. I went into the film knowing next to nothing about Liberace, so I can't speak to the historical accuracy, but I believe it's based of Scott Thorson's autobiography.

Honestly, I could go on about this movie forever, but I'd love to hear what others who have seen it thought about it.

It's clear to me that the marketing team behind the new Liberace movie is hard at work posting things to Reddit. When else have you noticed blatant advertising spam that actually got to the front page?

There's this video from today:

And there have been numerous posts about the movie on r/pics and r/movies

To be honest, it's really not inappropriate IMO. The video was cool, the pictures were good and mostly in the right subreddits. They are probably paying for initial upvotes, but still.
