Guys why aren't we talking about how the little butt-smack that Jennyanydots gives Pouncival during her song to get him to move is the most motherly thing in the world?

Here’s Gumbie Cat and this one made me want to flip a table. I’ve never spent more than one day on a recording but this one forced me to, purely because the harmonies took SO LONG to figure out dfslfdsjka. Anyways, hope y’all enjoy :) 
oh! and don’t mind the awful high notes at the end, I was too stubborn to cut them out.

Here’s a sneak peak of the next song I’m working on!
This was just a test for the harmonies to make sure I got them down right, I figured them all out by ear so I wanted to make sure they actually sounded good together. 
I’m not quite sure who sings what part but I’m pretty sure that Jellylorum sings the highest? Idk about the other two though. 
I’m going to be recording the full versions of these parts, as well as Munks and Jennys tomorrow, but I wanted to get this part finished tonight so I could rest easy knowing that the hardest part was already done.

You know it's going to be a great day when The Old Gumbie Cat is stuck in you first wake up.
Or any song from the musical gets stuck in your head. That's something to wake up to.

I will be posting what I think about Tom Hooper’s Commentary for Gumbie Cat hopefully by the end of the week. I have my notes which has a lot of “no’s” and “that didn’t happen” written down. And a lot of “why’s”.

I keep coming up with new hcs when watching Gumbie Cat based on the reactions of the other cats during the song. Would anyone be interested in them? Some may be simular to others.

So i’ve watched Cats 2019 a few times now, and for the most part, i’ve become pretty desensitized to it. The bad CG, the uncanny-valley designs, the dull-as-dishwater song rearrangements, i’ve gotten used to all of that! But the one number I still can’t stand is The Old Gumbie Cat. And it’s not even the terrible mice and cockroach CG, it’s just the sheer unpleasantness of the whole thing! Like, the fatphobia was bad enough, but I just can’t understand why they made Jenny so mean here! Her whole thing in the musical is that she’s a sweet old kitty who devotes her own time and energy to the betterment of others. That’s the whole point of the song! It’s honestly so surreal to have Munkustrap sweetly singing about her good deeds while she’s actively eating her cockroach performers, and her mice are clearly terrified of her!
Like, sorry, but rebeldots will never be valid in my book.

I have a Gumbie Cat in mind
Her name is Jennyanydots
Her fur is of the tabby kind
With tiger stripes and leopard spots

Part of “The Old Gumbie Cat” from the Opera Populaire production!  Poor Jeny doesn’t look used to dancing in her bloomers, but everyone’s costumes are gorgeous (the little wings on the cockroaches are so dear), and she has such a pretty voice!

Random Funny Moments of CATS 2019
Plato holds the tin can for Jenny to use as a “drum.” 
After Jenny hits the “drum,” Plato licks his free paw and begins cleaning his face. Then he pauses, looking at his paw in some concern. He then “high-fives” Jenny with that paw, after which he continues to use it to clean his face.
“Hmm, my face needs washing, I’ll just-- Oh, dear, Jenny wants a high-five and I’ve just licked my paw! Oh, well. What she doesn’t know...”

So during the... Table Dance, or Cake Dance, or whichever you prefer to call it, the queenkits are participating, Plato’s on the other side of the table being horribly abused - having things thrown at him/almost tasting a cockroach but changing his mind (thank goodness!) - and then you have Socrates and Coricopat just sort of standing and observing, experiencing varying levels of confusion and interest.
