Beethoven's Last Night

Do any of you listen to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra? 

Let me just say I freakin' LOVE them. I mean love. Their albums are among my most listened to ever, and I would rank Beethoven's Last Night in my top five favorite albums ever.

Last week, it was announced that they would be coming to Boise to perform that album and I freaked out. I was going to have a big sale and do a comment game to earn money for the tickets, but then as it turned out, the concert was a mislead and Boise's website was showing an old concert listing for this Friday. 

-MAJOR BUMMER!-

I cried. Pathetic, I know, but I was so excited! So as a little bit of crafting therapy, I made mini Beethoven and Mozart plushes in honor of the story in the album. 

Mozart was largely influenced by the Mozart in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures, since that is one of my favorite movies ever.
Mozart was based LARGELY by the movie Amadeus, also one of my top favorite movies of all time. Maybe in my top three even!
 I am pretty bummed I don't get to see TSO, but I will someday I am sure! And I am in love with mini Beethoven and Mozart. I hope you like them too!

They are adorable. Their eyes are amazing! Small comfort I'm sure next to the disappointment, but, there is always HOPE! Right?

They are just the cutest little things!! I've seen your work before and I think you are just a magnificent, creative person. I'm sorry you couldn't see TSO, but at least you know and listen to the music! So do I. Great music!
