Re: General Chatter

My Barricade Days: I hoisted that giant tricolore of mine(things you buy on vacation when you need to spend foreign money...)from my apartment window, let it fly over the town, sang the Marseillaise along with Mireille Mathieu and listened to the CSR - with the final battle timed around noon of the ...

Random videos

Couldn't find a suitable topic on here. Anyways, Lego projects are great, so here's one a friend and I made. We are big fans of Eddie Izzard(Death Star Cantina anyone?) and when we heard that skip we had to visualize it with Lego:

Re: Favourite recording?

Let's see, I got or heard:
OFC
OLC
OBC
CSR
TAC
25ATC
PRC 1991
Denmark 1992
Vienna 1988
Duisburg 1996

And my fav is...the CSR. Despite its flaws cast- and musicalwise it is wonderful. And listened to on a proper sound system it is amazing.

Popularity around the globe

Some countries seem mad about Hugo's book, some rather indifferent. At least that's my impression judging from the reception of the musical, the movie versions made or bits about the novel I picked up through the years. Yet I couldn't find something like sale figures or loads of quotes to undermine ...

Re: Literature about barricades

2010 is quite new indeed. ;) One of the appendices is a database of 155 barricade events, from 157X to 1898. I was fortunate enough to know one more and told him so via email, which he encourages in the book. Also he answered some questions I had. @C.Feuilly: Have you tried interlending? Many librar...

Ok, Philip Quast played Javert in Australia, London and Manchester for almost 4 years...yet I could only find four good stage photos of him:

Re: New recruit on the barricades!

Thanks for the welcome everyone! I got my personal 500 francs note too...and recently missed on adding one more plus the said ticket on ebay(also missed a small flag from the TAC)-stupid me. Could have bought me two-thirds of Cosette... :D

Re: Nostalgia

I believe *scratch head* the first LM song I ever heard was DYHTPS from the TAC video. At least it's the first thing I can remember hearing and seeing. And it gives me that subconcious kind of goosebumps each time I listen to or watch it. And the first "foreign" (rather native for me) was ...

Re: New Recordings

I'd love to hear it either in Italian or...Russian. Somehow I am profoundly delighted by the idea to hear a Russian Les Miz. I mean come on...DYHTPS in Russian?? Epic!
