What is purpose of niall having a fake relationship he is not hiding anything?


  • being something to talk about in the press
  • keeping attention on the boys in any and every way
  • selling concert tickets on the Australian leg and in general
  • selling clothes to young girls
  • aging Niall’s image up a bit since his image has always been that of “innocent” and not having a public relationship doesn’t help with making him look like an adult to the public
  • also because I doubt Niall would ever let a real partner of his be used for these ends after having seen what’s been done to the other boys


  • providing a distraction for the fandom from the disaster that’s going on with everyone else currently
  • trying to cover up the fact too little too late that Niall’s never had his relationships interfered with and has been allowed to keep them private unlike the rest of the boys
  • reasserting Niall’s straightness just in case you wondered since he’s never had a public girlfriend

Not all of these are necessarily the goal and even if they are, what’s happening isn’t achieving all of these things perfectly.  However, they’re all perfectly reasonable things to think could be behind it.

Darling please stay,
It’s 3am on a Thursday and your screaming at me
About some mistake I never knew I was making
When I was trying to be of use to you

Darling please stay
It’s the next morning and there’s a suitcase in our hall
Your name is on a one way ticket going
Anywhere far from here

Darling please.
I’ve written apologies from the floor to ceiling
On the nursery we had painted together
But you’ve run out of brushes to paint this like forgiveness.
And none of us have the heart to call half a home complete.

Darling please
I am sorry, I have become a reminder of our failures.
But I’ve lit a fire in the hearth, with all the memories we wrote each other
And its burning out of control with parchments scrawled'I wish you were here’ and ‘see you soon’s

Darling please
Don’t you see, you are this house to me.
We filled a library with our poetry, I filled the kitchen with mistakes
That we laughed and called gourmet.
The bedrooms filled with echoes of our voices, scratched into the walls.

Darling please.
I see your face in all the art I’ve ever seen.
Smiling and saying my name

If you go,
don’t forget the way back home.

—  Michael Beswick, Darling

The 2¢ Show gives listeners a one-way ticket with the robots on-the-road through an antique America that is filled with both magic and mystery. Join Rabbit, The Spine, and The Jon as they travel to romanticized echoes of various eras. Eras such as the wild and weird west, where Jackalopes yodeled alongside singing cowboys and Giant Rattlesnakes were king. Aboard an enchanted steamboat, they head deep into a mystical south, finding Bog Spirits who boogie to twisted Zydeco tunes. From a decaying past, dieselpunk fables and crooning records melt with electric folk pop and psychedelic radiation to create the unique, yet timeless sound Steam Powered Giraffe makes.

Romare Bearden’s spiritual masterwork returns to the MoMA galleries for the first time since 1971 as part of One-Way Ticket: Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series and Other Visions of the Great Movement North

I bought a one way ticket cause I knew I’d never see the ground, unless I was aboard a jet plane and we were going down.

Schomburg Director Khalil Gibran Muhammad talks to NPR about our Jacob Lawrence collaboration with MoMA, “One-Way Ticket: Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series and Other Visions of the Great Movement North.“

The colors are dark and rich; black, deep browns and blues, with spots of red and orange. Warm, which could be interpreted as togetherness and hope.
