Les Misérables


In Which Hugh Jackman Sings About Wolverine, Les Mis Style [Video]

I don’t know about you guys, but I am looking forward to the debut of Les Mutantes, a sung-through Broadway spectacle chronicling the struggles of bourgeois X-Gene carriers as they rebel against the Homo sapiens sapiens aristocracy.

Theater Dorks, Come Forth: Sesame Street Did a Les Mis Parody

And it’s more filled with more food puns than that time Peeta in their Catching Fire was an actual piece of pita bread. Jean Bon Bon. Flantine.

Lockets are pretty awesome.  But make those lockets geeky and suddenly they’re even more awesome.  Etsy Store ThreeTwelveTrinkets sells these super cool geeky lockets that include fandoms as varied as Marvel, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and Minecraft.  You can even custom order one if you don’t see anything you like in their current collection.  And, as an added bonus, they’re super affordable.


Just Go With It

Les Misérables With Lightsabers: The Musical

Les Misérables meets Star Wars in a big way. Somehow, I don’t think Victor Hugo ever saw his work going quite this way. But don’t worry, Victor ol’ chap, believe us when we say, this is great.

what is this I don't even

The Creator of Veronica Mars Is Doing a Modern-Day Les Misérables TV Show For Fox

If you’re at all familiar with the Les Misérables fandom, you’ll know that there are a lot of modern-day AU fanfics. Like a lot. People love writing Victor Hugo‘s unjustly persecuted criminal, law-obsessed detective, and merry band of revolutionaries (mostly the revolutionaries) into a current setting where everyone has cell phones and laptops and they don’t all die.

And now a modern-day version of Les Misérables is happening. As a TV show. On Fox. By Veronica Mars showrunner Rob Thomas. The synopsis sounds kind of ridiculous, but I don’t know if I mean that in a good way or a bad way. An modern-day Les Misérables TV show. My brain doesn’t know what it’s doing.

X-Men Star Is Frankenstein, Game Of Thrones Actor Joins Dracula

My Precious!

Gollum Mourns the Loss of His Precious By Singing “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables. Like You Do. [VIDEO]

It took me a few seconds to get into YouTube user Ijameswalters, as Gollum, singing “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables. But then he changed the “I”s to “we”s and the lyrics started mentioning nasty Hobbitses, and by 3:20 I’d completely lost it.

The South Korean Air Force Puts Us All to Shame, Does a Parody of Les Misérables [VIDEO]

It’s called Les Militaribles. I’m not really sure what else I can say about it, except that it makes snow really, really dramatic. East coasters affected by the winter storm should watch it and be glad they’re indoors at their computers and not out shoveling snow for hours on end like poor Jean Valjean.
