This blog is not related to opera mezzo soprano Joyce Didonato aka Yankeediva, in any way. It is about my passions. Opera,art, and menswear among them. It also allows me to fanboy out on, among other things, Joyce Didonato. I also want to use it to show that opera and dressing well are not elitist. If I can do it, so can any other idiot :)

Banana. Bunny in a cup for scale. That is all

I THINK YOU MEAN BAÑAÑA and BUÑÑY

Imagine if someone took a drink of coffee and got the surprise of his life. YouTube gold, all I’m saying.

Aren’t they cute ? <3

Wtf where did this come from?! I know it’s from when they did BBC’s Opera Italia but i don’t recall this moment ever being in the programme… 

It’s from this video :) We don’t see them much, unfortunately. But the whole thing is pretty interesting.

THAT’S IT. That’s the one.
When I made this gif a few weeks ago I had the image above in mind—Sarah Connolly and Danielle de Niese touching foreheads, complete with Danni sticking her tongue out. I couldn’t find this moment in the Opera Italia video so I started thinking I must have imagined it. But I didn’t imagine it! It was from Opera’s Fallen Women, which obviously used footage from the same workshop.

Ok, so let me explain this picture a little bit… This is my idol Joyce DiDonato she and I were having a heart to heart.. She knows about my background and my suicide attempts, and every-time I email her she is ALWAYS ALWAYS so excited to hear from me. Today was my first time at the MET, I went to see Cenerentola and it was an experience.. The show was great. So anyway we go to the stage door and I’m FREAKING THE F OUT.. I am so overcome with emotions that I start to cry… I had to sing Mary had a little lamb out loud to not cry.. Anyway Joyce comes out signed a bunch of stuff for people and takes pics.. Then she sees me.. She literally goes “CONGRATULATIONS FOR GETING INTO COLLEGE” and I loose my shit… I LOOSE IT. I start crying… So she comes over gives me this HUGE hug and tells me to stop crying….. I regain my composure and I ask her to sign a few things… And she cheerfully obliges.. Halfway through her signing my ReJoyce album I look at her and I go “things have gotten better, and I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for me” she stops turns to me and says “who is responsible for all of your successes??” I look at her and I’m To stunned to speak… Again she goes “who is responsible for your successes?? Im not gonna finish signing this CD until you answer” I squeak out “I am” she then responds with the absolute greatest piece of advice that I’ve ever gotten “you are responsible for those successes! And you have to give yourself some credit for all of the MAJOR things that you have overcome. I’m not saying that I’m not thankful I am thankful and proud of you! But now it’s time for you to be proud of yourself and give yourself credit for all of the things that you’ve accomplished.. Never loose sight of that”
I love this woman.

The anthropologists decided that this tribe was to remain “uncontacted”.

This is one of the best things iv seen today


Lesson learned.
