*do dream is like a dream come true with all my biases in a show ♥♥♥

Epic Movie (Re)Watch #124 - Zootopia

Spoilers below.

Have I seen it before: Yes

Did I like it then: Yes!

Do I remember it: Yes.

Did I see it in theaters: Yes.

Was it a movie I saw since August 22nd, 2009: Yes. #412.

Format: Blu-ray

1) From the very start this film is excellent storytelling. The opening scene where young Judy and her classmates clearly establishes the conflict of predator vs. prey and the biases that come from that, the film’s humor and heart, and Judy as a character.

2) My mother is an actuary. My brother is studying to be an actuary. Actuaries don’t do this.

Little Jaguar: “Today I can hunt for tax exemptions. I’m going to be an actuary!”

3) Judy’s parents (Don Lake & Bonnie Hunt) are so funny in such a sad way.

Stu: “Judy, you ever wonder how your mom and me got to be so darn happy?”

Judy: “Nope.”

Stu: “Well, we gave up on our dreams and we settled. Right, Bon?”

Bonnie: “Oh yes, that’s right Stu. We settled hard.”

4) Gideon Grey.

Gideon is a perfect example of how nothing - NOTHING - in this film is superfluous, but I’m actually going to speak on that further into the film.

5) The police academy scene gives wonderful exposition. It sets up the environment and rules of Zootopia’s various ecosystems in a way that feeds into Judy’s conflict and character.

6) Ginnifer Goodwin as Judy Hopps.

Originally posted by floppy999

Goodwin (a massive Disney fan herself) breathes perfect life into Hopps. The best voice over work is when you’re not distracted by the voice actor. When their voice and their heart match with the character so perfectly that you don’t hear - say - Kristen Bell as Anna or Mike Myers as Shrek, you only hear the character’s. Goodwin is able to balance Judy’s massive optimism and heart along with the scenes where Judy has lost those things perfectly. I don’t think anyone else could have voiced Hopps as well as Goodwin.

7) If you want to avoid a slew of bad animal puns, don’t look too hard at Judy’s iPod.

8) “Try Everything” by Shakira.

Originally posted by raddestboy

Written by Sia, Tor Erik Hermansen, and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen, the theme song which deserved an Oscar nomination captures Judy’s optimism and struggles perfectly. The song’s lyrics speak of optimism in the face of constant failure, a theme which is very relevant to Judy in the first half of the film. It also provides the perfect backdrop to the visual introduction of Zootopia as Judy enters the city on train.

9) Subtle.

Judy [after Clawhauser calls her “cute”]: “Ooh, ah, you probably didn’t know, but a bunny can call another bunny ‘cute’, but when other animals do it, that’s a little…”

10) This film really runs with the animal puns.

Bogo [turning to an Elephant officer]: “Francine. Happy birthday!”

11) I love the way the filmmakers handled Judy’s office discrimination. She is treated just as a token bunny, someone who’s only there for PR. Except she was top of her class at Zootopia police academy: a difficult feat for anybody, let alone a bunny. But this just feeds into the biases Bogo already has about Judy: she’s not really that good, they just said she was because she’s a bunny. That plays into real life way more than it probably should.

12) Wow, I did not catch how entirely speciesist this line was until now:

Ice Cream Parlor Owner [to Nick]: “Look, you probably can’t read…”

Damn that’s speciesist.

13) Jason Bateman as Nick Wilde.

Originally posted by a-zootopia-fan

Remember how I said great voice over work is noted by not realizing you’re listening to a voice over artist? The same can be said of Bateman’s performance of Wilde, 100%. To start, Bateman captures Wilde’s surface level of sly con artists WONDERFULLY well. He’s devilish and charming in the same vein as Danny Ocean or Han Solo, and Bateman expresses this perfectly. But as the film progresses Bateman is also able to show off Nick’s layers. His troubled past, his occasional lack of self-worth and anger at the world. And the honest level never changes. It’s not like Bateman was hired ONLY for the slyness of Nick’s role and had to power through the rest, he’s able to do it all. It’s a great voice over for a great character.

14) The relationship between Nick & Judy is the cornerstone of this film. What I personally like about it is its honesty. There’s no BIG moment when these two meet, it’s a chance encounter which grows to conflict and then budding friendship so organically you don’t even know it’s happening.

15) There is nothing even remotely superfluous in this film. Nick makes a comment about how he’s been running his popsicle con his whole life and that will come back to bite him in the butt later.

16) This pig is played by Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin’s onscreen partner in “Once Upon a Time” and real life husband.

17) The chase through Zootopia is an incredible amount of fun, especially when Judy and Duke get to Little Rodentia. The filmmakers are able to play with their concept in a visual entertaining and imaginative way, which in turn keeps us as the audience wrapped up in the world they’ve established.

Note: I’m going to take about Alan Tudyk as Duke later in the film, at a very specific moment.

18) Again, there is nothing superfluous in this film (a note I’m going to be making a lot):

Judy [after saving Mr. Big’s daughter]: “Love your hair.”

Mr. Big’s Daughter: “Aww, thank you!”

It is this little encounter (and, you know, the fact that Judy saved her life) that saves Judy & Nick from getting “iced” by Mr. Big later in the film.

19) Again, nothing superfluous in the film. As the “non-onions” that Duke stole end up being very important later on.

20) Disney is at its bets when it pokes fun at itself.

Bogo: “Life isn’t some cartoon musical where you sing a little musical and your insipid dreams MAGICALLY COME TRUE! So let it go.”

21) Can we all just take a moment to appreciate Nick’s face after Judy says she’ll arrest him for, “felony tax evasion,” after he brags to her about how he’s been running this con since he was a kid and how much money he makes?

(GIF originally posted by @animations-daily)

22) Again, with the idea that nothing in this film is superfluous: Judy’s recording pen becomes very important as the movie goes on.

23) Only Tommy Chong could play this character.

(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)

Like there’s a chance he’s not even reading from a script, they just had Tommy Chong come in and told him what the movie was about and he just started talking.

24) This is the funniest part of the whole film, in my opinion.

Originally posted by officialmoviegoer

The entire DMV scene plays well not only with the concept established by the film of an animal society in a way which is funny on its own, but the continuing conflict of Judy’s eagerness, Flash’s slowness, and Nick’s desire to throw a monkey wrench into the whole thing leads to amazing comedy.

25) Did you know Kristen Bell is in this film?

Originally posted by musicallyfoxypokemon

Bell landed the role not only because of her working with Disney on Frozen, but also because she is a noteworthy sloth enthusiast (as seen on “Ellen”).

26) It is nice to see Nick freak out when he realizes he and Judy are in Mr. Big’s limo, as it shows us a part of him we haven’t gotten to look at much in the film so far.

27) Maurice LaMarche as Mr. Big.

(GIF originally posted by @rocktheholygrail)

LaMarche is a noted voice over actor known primarily for his roles as Brain on “Pinky & The Brain”, various characters including Calculon on “Futurama”, and Mr. Freeze in the Batman Arkham series of video games. Here, we get to hear the veteran voice over artist do his best high pitched Brando impression.

28) This film has its fair share of nice surprises, details and twists which keeps you on your toes. The earliest of these is the revelation that the missing mammal Judy & Nick are looking for - Mr. Otterton - was in fact the one who attacked the limo driver (and not that he was the one attacked, as originally perceived).

29) This scene gives me life.

Bogo [after Judy’s witness disappears]: Two days to find the otter, or you quit. That was the deal. [Holding out hand] Badge.

Judy: But sir, we…

Bogo: Badge!

[Judy starts to turn in her badge]

Nick: Uh… no.

Chief Bogo: What did you say, fox?

Nick Wilde: Sorry, what I said was… NO! She will not be giving you that badge.[Bogo flinches] Look, you gave her a… a… a clown vest and a three wheel joke mobile and two days to solve a case you guys haven’t cracked in two weeks? Yeah, no wonder she needed to get help from a fox. None of you guys were gonna help her, were you? [Bogo starts to speak but Nick cuts him off] Here’s the thing, chief. You gave her the 48 hours, so technically we still have… 10 left, to find our Mr. Otterton. And that’s exactly what we’re gonna do. So, if you’ll excuse us, we have a very big lead to follow and a case to crack. Good day.

30) And then there’s this…

I saw this film twice in theaters and both times I was tearing up during Nick’s backstory. Anyone who has ever been bullied as a kid for being different will relate at least a little bit to what Nick went through. And it is this scene when Nick is at his most honesty with Judy, when they become pretty good friends and form a trust with each other.

31) NOTHING IN THIS FILM IS SUPERFLUOUS!!!! NOT EVEN A BLINK OR YOU’LL MISS IT STICKY NOTE ON BELLWETHER’S DESK!!!!

32) I did not think a Disney movie would make me jump like this (stop at 2:11).

33) This is incredibly rare for me, as someone who sees more than 60 films in theaters a year, but after Nick & Judy found the missing mammals and had the mayor arrested I had absolutely NO idea where the film was going after that. At all. I love it!

34) Nick’s face when Judy links the savage animals to being a predator…

(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)

35) I had a film student criticize this film not based on the merits of its story or character’s or anything, but because they didn’t understand the metaphor. He noted that it’s not a clean comparison between white people and minorities and that’s exactly the point. This film is not about the people in power vs the people who aren’t, because who’s in power? The mayor may be a lion but the most biased character in the film - Chief Bogo - is prey. Bias goes all around and it can infect anybody, no matter what you think. Even Judy, for all her merits, is biased. She carries around fox repellent all the time and even has this line:

Judy: “It’s not like a bunny can go savage.”

That’s what I love about this film. It’s universal. It’s not about one real life society, it is about all societies everywhere and how bias can infect them and taint them and it’s up to us to work against that.

36) Fun fact: I had no idea otters were predators before seeing this film.

37) Gideon Grey returns.

Originally posted by klaus-baudelarie

If only all childhood bullies were like that, but again it gets to my oft-repeated point that nothing in this film is superfluous. Gideon could have easily been the one note bully from Judy’s youth who gave her the motivation to prove him wrong, but he comes back 15 years later in the most perfect way. She sees that people can change and that people who are good now are not always good (Gideon when he was younger, Judy when she was biased). It is a really important moment for her that was established all the way in the first ten minutes of this movie. I love that.

38) Judy’s apology to Nick and the way he handles it is something I truly love about this movie and their friendship as a whole.

And then I really love the little joke at the end about Judy trying to get to the pen and can’t help but wonder: was that written in the script? Was it Jason Bateman’s improv that made it into the film? It’s just so natural I must know!

39) Okay, I think this is the last time I will give this note, BUT NOTHING IN THIS MOVIE IS SUPERFLUOUS!!! This is most apparent to me when Nick does a little thing like expressing how much he likes the berries on Judy’s farm and it becomes so important to the plot latter when they switched out those berries with the Night Howlers in Bellwether’s dart gun.

40) THE BOOTLEG MOVIES!!!!

(GIFs originally posted by @bridgetjones)

41) And it’s followed up by this!

Both characters are voiced by Alan Tudyk. Because Disney just can’t let that one slide, can they? I love it.

42) Same Duke. Same.

(GIFs originally posted by @baawri)

43) The sticky note on Bellwether’s phone earlier was for Doug, the guy who mixes the night howler drug that makes animals go savage (this is the same drug who’s key ingredient was mixed from the non-onions Duke stole earlier in the film, FOR Doug).

44) At one point Doug - who is dressed in a yellow radiation suit and makes drugs for a living - lets his client know that “Woolter and Jesse” have arrived.

Originally posted by knurd-dna-denots

And yes, they did that on purpose.

45) The entire subway chase sequence is really great, because it is based heavily on the idea of action = consequence. A ram is running at the door, he gets through and hits another ram. The train goes too fast into a turn, it tips over and Judy/Nick are up a creek. It all works very nicely

46) Honestly, I didn’t figure out Bellwether was the bad guy until just before it was revealed the first time I saw this.

Originally posted by lostchel

47) Bellwether’s line about, “Fear ALWAYS works!” to keep the people in check should not be as relevant in 2017 as it is.

48) Okay, one thing I need to know: Bellwether is in jail, Mayor Lionheart is in jail, and Chief Bogo is still the police chief…SO WHO’S MAYOR NOW!?!?!?

Originally posted by justalittletumblweed

49) I know this film was pretty much a buddy cop movie, but I would be totally fine with a buddy cop movie where Nick is actually a cop.

Originally posted by blueberrycarrots

Lethal Weapon where Nick is Mel Gibson and Judy is…Danny Glover? Okay, that comparison doesn’t really work, but you get me!

50) And of course…

I honestly think Zootopia may be a perfectly written film, and that is not something I say lightly. I made it clear above how I find nothing in the film superfluous, which is an incredible feat I think. And they did it in a way that was never boring, with entertaining characters, an intriguing mystery, and a fun world. Zootopia may be my favorite Disney animated feature film, and it’s definitely my favorite of the “Modern Era” we’re in now (The Princess and the Frog - Present). Just a great, great, great film which deserved its Best Animated Picture win at the Oscars. A true treat all around.

Imagine skipping class with Chris. (Part B)

A/N: Part 3B! Oh God, I was going to wait till tomorrow but I’m just too excited! I’m really happy with how this one turned out. You can read the previous parts here: (Unexpected Reader - Part 1/Part 2/Part 3A) Enjoooooy! X

Burbank; that was where Chris took you after breakfast in the cute little corner bistro you loved so much. He took you all the way there to give you a tour of Marvel Studios as well as introduce you to some of the people from the industry you were dying to be apart of. He even managed to get you a quick meeting with the very busy Kevin Fiege, who- thanks to Chris- promised he’d give you a meeting when you graduated from UCLA; an offer to which you squealed at the second you thought Kevin was out of earshot. He wasn’t, and it explained why Chris Evans would go through so much trouble for a girl people said was, “just a fan he met an airport.” You were sweet and humble and passionate, and Kevin wouldn’t be surprised if months later he’d heard Chris ended up dating you. The two of you clearly had a lot of chemistry, and he wasn’t blind to the way Chris looked at you; it may have been subtle, but it was definitely a look of love.

Love.

A strange concept; love. It could either be the simplest of things, or the most complicated. Unfortunately for the two of you, it was the latter. Neither of you wanted to admit anything, due to fear of getting hurt. That was the thing about love, despite how wonderful it could make a person feel- there was also the chance of ruining an entire being. A wrong move, a poorly chosen word, bad timing- all of these were factors capable of tearing a soul in pieces.

Chris couldn’t do that to you, he couldn’t take away that light you carried despite how dark you thought you were. You were the kind of girl who still believed she could meet the love of her life in a coffee shop; who believed in love at first sight; who wanted to marry as soon as possible; who didn’t want to date casually; who was a hopeless romantic; who thought love was just like the movies. You had an incredibly innocent heart that he both wanted to force his way into, but also protect. He wanted you to have a lifetime of happiness, and he wasn’t yet sure if he could provide that for you. But God, he was starting to realize you were a girl he wasn’t going to get over easily. If he found out tomorrow you were going on a date with another man, he’d both be ecstatic and heartbroken.

Chris took his eyes off the road for a brief second to throw a glance your way. It’d been fifteen minutes since you got into the car, but you were still smiling at the pass hanging around your neck. He’d made it himself, and it had both your name and the phrase “VIP - Chris Evans’ Very Important Person” on it. You looked over at him as he turned back to the road, smiling when you saw him smile. You still couldn’t believe your luck; it’d been exactly forty-three days since you met Chris and you still couldn’t believe your luck. You woke with a smile on your face each morning- not just because of the ‘good morning’ texts he’d sent you, but because you woke knowing you had him in your life. It was a pretty freaking amazing feeling, one you hoped you’d never have to give up.

“Thank you for today, Chris.” You told him, smiling; he glanced at you and smiled back, nodding. “You’re right about it being worth my time, I couldn’t imagine spending today any other way. This has just been an absolute dream come true, honestly-” you cut yourself off, chuckling, “you’re the best, the absolute best.”

“It’s not over yet,” he threw another smile your way. “We’ve still got one more stop before we call it a day, and um-” he pulled his car to a stop; you looked out and saw the Dolby Theatre. “You might want to do a quick costume change.” He told you then got out of the car before you could question him further. “C'mon,” he called as he knocked on the back windshield.

You got out of the car and chuckled when you saw him hold up two dress bags. One held a navy blue tux, and the other held your old prom dress. “Where the hell did you get that from?” You laughed, taking the bag from him. “You didn’t break into my room while I was sleeping, did you?”

“God, no,” he laughed. “Ava did.” He told you and you chuckled. Of course Ava did, your best friend would do anything Chris asked her to because she too was a huge fan of his. You’d met her on Tumblr a few years ago, connecting through your love for Chris Evans and writing, and only recently met her in real life. She was yet another wonderful thing you needed to thank Chris for, because without him to write about- you would’ve never met Ava. “I told her about today and she offered her services.”

“Isn’t she a doll,” you bit sarcastically, then laughed when he did. “Are you serious about changing?” You quizzed and he nodded, walking towards the entrance as he draped the dress bag over his shoulder. “Oh come on,” you ran after him, “I don’t want to put on a gown!”

“You’re going to be very under dressed.” He pushed the door open and beckoned you in with his head. You stared at him, not saying anything or walking into anywhere. You huffed when he chuckled, “it’ll be fun, Y/N. Trust me,” he said with a smile that you’d never- in your forty-three days of knowing him- been able to say no to.

“Fine,” you sighed and stomped into the building. “Is there a bath-” You cut yourself off when he pointed you in the direction of the bathroom. “Just so you know, I might not even fit that dress.” You told him as you stomped towards the female bathroom like a pouty child; he followed behind you, chuckling softly. “I’m not as slim now as I was at my prom.”

“You still look great to me,” he told you and you felt heat rise to your cheeks. You bit back your smile as you glanced back at him. “Get dressed,” he instructed and you nodded, “then meet me at the stage.”

• • • • • • • •

Chris waited on the stage patiently for you, fiddling with his cuffs and sleeves. “I look ridiculous,” he heard your voice and looked up as you walked down the aisle towards the stage. His lips parted in awe, then formed into a smile as he appreciated how breathtaking you looked in your simple, but beautifully elegant, chiffon gown. “I mean-” you lifted your gown to display the sneakers you were wearing. “You could’ve at least got Ava to steal me some heels too,” you joked.

“You look beautiful.” He complimented as he walked down the steps to meet you; his heart beating as fast against his chest at the sight of you, as your heart was against your chest at the sight of him. “Now come on,” he held out his arm for you to take, “I want to show you something.”

“Like what?” You asked, letting him lead you on stage. “We’re already inside this amazing theatre, I mean- this is where they host the Oscars every year.” You pulled away from him to stroll the stage. “This place has held the talents of Meryl Streep and Denzel Washington and Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino and-” You stopped when you realized Chris was smiling at you. “Of course,” you walked back over to him and poked his chest, “Chris Evans. A man who should have won Oscars upon Oscars by now.”

“As biased as you are, my number one fan,” he teased and you giggled, “I appreciate it. And yes,” he agreed as he looked around the place, smiling. “The theatre is amazing and I did bring you here to show you the interior. But-” he said and you turned to him, “I also brought you here to prepare you for your future.”

“And how are you preparing me for my future?”

“Come here,” he used his head to beckon you towards him. You walked over hesitantly then tensed when he moved behind you, gently grabbing your arms. “This is where you’re going to be one day,” he whispered into your ear, smiling. He was having trouble remembering what he’d planned to say to you because your perfume was incredibly intoxicating and all he could think of was kissing your neck. “You’re going to be standing up here, looking down at everyone you’d thought you’d only see on your screen, thanking them and your loved ones for taking a chance on you and supporting you to your first Oscar win.”

You smiled as you imagined what Chris was saying. It was almost like you could feel the Golden Statue in your hand; the weight and the sturdiness of it. You closed your eyes and looked up; it was like the heat of a thousand lights were kissing your skin. Your ears could hear the thundering applause and the cheers as the entire audience rose to their feet to give you the standing ovation you deserved. You’d look out into the crowd and smile; smile at the people you’d worked with, those who’d helped you get you the award. That was the dream, it’d always been the dream. Just like Chris was part of it, he was part of everything. Even as you closed your eyes to picture a scene where you just won an award of the highest honor, you saw him. You saw him in the crowd and you smiled because knowing him, having him believe in you the way he did, having him in your life- that all meant so much more to you than winning an award.

“I can’t wait to see you up here,” he told you as he released you from his grip. His hand forgot you were just a friend and not his girlfriend, and took it upon itself to brush your cascading hair over your shoulder. “You are going to go to amazing places, Y/N. I promise you that,” he said with so much sincerity that you felt your eyes well with tears.

“Oh God,” your voice quivered as you sniffled, trying your best not to start crying. Chris’ eyes narrowed as he gently wrapped his arm around your elbow to turn you towards him. “These are happy tears,” you quickly told him when you saw concern in his eyes. “I’m um-” you reached up to brush your tears away, but he beat you to it. “I’m just really touched that you believe in me.”

“Of course I do,” he smiled and lowered his hand to take your in his; he squeezed it gently. “You are incredibly talented, Y/N. I am so glad you decided to pursue screen writing because- God, it’d be a waste if you didn’t. You have a way with words that not many do, and I have no doubt that it’s going to take you up here one day.”

“Because of you,” you said and he shook his head.

“No,” he said. “Because of you. With or without me, you were going to find your way here and I’m…” He trailed off, smiling at how beautiful you looked despite your teary eyes and runny nose. “I’m going to be standing in that audience applauding your incredible talent, and wishing that I’d one day be lucky enough to be able to direct or even act in one of your flawless pieces.”

“You’re going to make me cry,” you chuckled because it was your only way to stop yourself from crying. He smiled and brushed the tears that had escaped off your cheeks. “Thank you, Chris,” you told him as you forced your way into his arms, hugging him tightly; he’d hugged you back without hesitation. “You have no idea how much all of this means to me.”

“You’re welcome.”

Part 4A

Kavinsky Analysis

I generally try to keep my blog discourse free, so I’m putting it under the cut so that people who are tired of all the discourse/stressed from it can breathe, but I’m going to try and make it logical/rational and non-hostile, so give it a read? [It’s long so you can scroll down to the tldr to see if it interests you] (Kavinsky positive btw)

Keep reading

Analysis of Kidge
  • When i watched VLD for the first time i was simply amazed by quality. The fact that Dream Works did such a great job on this reboot made my heart skip a beat.
  • All the characters have very nice designs and I.Love.It. Must say i like how they change Pidge into a girl - she is my favourite character(so far) and the possibilities for ships in this show are incredibly. Problematic. For me.
  • Or at least were.
  • When it comes to shipping, i'm usually waiting until the last episode to judge, if those characters could work for me as ship or otp. I love to turn on my analytical thinking on. (that's just how i roll lol) You know - "interaction quality". At first i (what's suprising) din't focus on Klance, the most popular and loved ship or any other ship in particular. My attention drew Pidge x Shiro.(i know, don't get triggered now ok? let me explain)
  • They were just adorable leader - haker team, linked by the situation with Matt and their father. I need to say this, i did ship them romanticaly... But, i found out that she is a litlle younger than him and then Shiro just dissapeared in the last episode of season 2. Poof. Heartbroken lol jk.
  • So my hart was a little confused but i moved on quickly.
  • I decided to rewatch Voltron, just for fun, look for things i did not notice before or just animation errors. Or ANALYSING PLOTS DIRECTION.
  • Guess what happend. Ironically i found fanart of the last couple i could think of. Kidge/Peith.
  • My first reaction was really stupid and bad like :
  • "what is this, who made this, why them together, i don't understand this at all, they don't have much screen time together, did i missed something, must check it out myself and judge"
  • I was really suprised. Like, i don't know why actually.
  • Turns out i was not paing enough analytic attention.
  • It really bothered me so i ended up rewatching voltron just to UNDERSTAND why some people ships Kidge. Seriously.
  • (At that point i was shipping everything BUT KIDGE)
  • And it was good choice to check it out.
  • I was analysing literally EVERY little thing. Like some frikin' conspiracy theory fanatic. And i put my shippers google on.
  • Thats the irony of this situation. Because i find more quality in Kidge than i was expecting. It's true, for some reason they really don't have much time-bonding on screen and i hope it will change in season 3. I don't understand why.
  • If we take a look at things from 80s - they were like ... Best Friends forever.
  • BUT let's go back to VLD. When Keith and Katie do have time on screen together. Ooh. Dude. It's... Really something interesting to watch and think of.
  • Not just because it's suppouse to be cute or whatever, but to understand deepness of the whole show and characters.
  • Both, Pidge/Katie and Keith had someone close to them who was tooked by Zarcons force - Katies brother and father, Keiths dear friend Shirogane Takashi, who (acording to scene where Keith is talking to Shiros hologram) was like brother to him.
  • (brother-zone, thanks Keith for breaking my dreams of Sheith. Still gona ship platonicaly though.)
  • Katie joined the academy, Keith dropped out. Both were devoted and driven by need to search for the answers.
  • Both are inteligent, stubborn and could be daring.
  • Both are not really good when it comes to socialise with people, althoug Pidge is slightly better at this than Keith, who usually plays the role of the lone wolf of Voltron. (not really, he is emo cinnamon roll)
  • Both become voltron arms, side by side working as Sword and Shield of Voltron.
  • It's not just comparisson. They are different in some aspects which brings great balance between them as a duo.
  • Keith is the intuition and feelings, Kaite intelect and logic of Voltron.
  • Just like human left and right side of brain, lions of Voltron working together making it whole.
  • They interactions are not like the rest of palladins, and im not biasing right now to prove my point. There is much more to it than that.
  • It's just pure neutral analysis. When Keith and Lance were showing sings on certain mission it was problematic at first for them to understand each other.
  • While the Keith and Pidge needed only ONE nod to know what is the other one thinking, able to cooperate in case to attack the intruder.
  • That's exacly what makes me interested in this ship.
  • Not sweetness of them. Not becuse it look good/bad. Not the single moments, fanarts, fanfics,of them. But the wonderful pleasure and possibility of analising it just for fun and thinking about the future episodes.

Thoughts about chapter 852

So, the newest chapter is out and as expected, there was no escape from the feels. This time it’s not about the bad things but because there is finally some hope for Sanji. This review is mainly focused on Sanji and Reiju but let’s start with Luffy and others.

anonymous asked:

I need help understanding Pynch. Like I get that Ronan likes Adam but I've never seen anything in the books that shows Adam feels the same. I Want to like them because I think they'd be happy if they were in love but I just don't understand....

[rolls my sleeves up] [gets out my briefcase] [rustles papers]

lmao alright let’s do this anon LET’S DO THIS

so first things first: if you’re looking for something that explicitly states that adam likes ronan, you’re not going to get that. that’s just not how maggie’s writing works. most of what she does throughout the series (and it’s one of my favourite aspects) is imply and infer things without directly stating them. 

look at ronan, for example – even though his feelings for adam are canonical, what we get for ages are references circling around that fact instead of directly pointing to them. in tdt the closest thing that comes to it naming it outright is “ronan’s second secret was adam parrish.” and even in bllb, it’s adam musing on ronan’s crush on him that makes it clear, rather than anything specifically thought or said by ronan himself. but all in all, looking at these separate, veiled references as a whole is how we as readers can draw the conclusion that yes, ronan likes adam.

now, i’m biased because i am a pynch shipper, but i do see some reciprocity in feelings through the way in which adam observes ronan as the series goes on. i would agree that his feelings are certainly not as strong as ronan’s – in fact, i’d argue that adam isn’t yet aware of those feelings himself. and that makes sense because to my knowledge, when the series starts ronan already knows how he feels about adam. but us reading the raven cycle is the process of adam not only figuring a lot out about himself, but coming to new understandings in his relationship with ronan (as well as the rest of the gang). and that makes sense to me because imo adam, out of all the main characters, has the biggest personal transformation throughout the series.

if you look at the books in a nutshell, you can already see the progression. book one: ronan and adam are friends but mostly through gansey, i wouldn’t say they have a significantly close relationship apart from that. and yet the way in which adam observes ronan is strangely poetic:

Gansey had once told Adam that he was afraid most people didn’t know how to handle Ronan. What he meant by this was that he was worried that one day someone would fall on Ronan and cut themselves.

He was the boy with the most beautifully interesting car, and the most savagely handsome of friends, Ronan Lynch.

As Adam stared at his lap, penitent, he mused that there was something musical about Ronan when he swore, a careful and loving precision to the way he fit the words together, a black-painted poetry.

and of course by the end of the book, adam decides to file a lawsuit against his father, at huge personal cost, to protect ronan. i don’t think it’s a stretch to say this is something that irrefutably changed the nature of their relationship. book two: ronan’s feelings become obvious to us as readers, as most of this book focuses on ronan’s pov. but adam figures out ronan paid for his rent and his reaction is what i find the most interesting:

Adam looked up at Ronan. “I know it was you,” he said. “I figured it out. The rent.”
He held Ronan’s gaze for just a moment longer, until something inside Ronan unwound and he almost said something.

i’ll admit, at the end of tdt i wouldn’t at all have been convinced adam was developing feelings for ronan, although the opposite was definitely true. but then, bam, we were hit with bllb. and that’s where imo all the evidence is that adam’s disposition towards ronan is changing, and not just in a platonic way.

okay now onto the fun stuff. like i mentioned, maggie’s writing is all about hiding things in the spaces between her words, so when i say i think adam is developing feelings for ronan it’s all about the subtext. and you can feel free to disagree with me, a lot of people do – i’m pretty sure there’s tons of people in the fandom who don’t ship, and even hate, pynch. but i just can’t read these bllb quotes which are specifically from adam’s perspective without seeing that transformative process at work, seeing ronan come more sharply into view as a fully fleshed person for adam (who’s never bothered, or never had the opportunity, to read ronan on such a deep level before), and seeing adam be taken aback by his new perspective, in such a way that indicates that a) the surprise is not an unwelcome one and that subsequently b) adam wants to know ronan more, to know him better. you’ll notice the poetic descriptions of ronan from trb are back, but with a vengeance – now it’s not just ronan’s magic that adam considers with awe and borderline reverence, but ronan himself.

The cow’s pulse had accelerated fractionally. Again, he imagined Ronan here on his own, so hopeful for a change that he would have noted such a subtle difference. It was far more dedication than he thought Ronan Lynch capable of.

Adam felt the truth of it. This awful and impossible and lovely object was what a dream was when it had nothing to inhabit. Who was this person who could dream a dream into a concrete shape? No wonder Aglionby bored Ronan.

Light, or something like light, reflected off it onto Ronan’s chin and cheeks, rendering him stark and handsome and terrifying and someone else. Then he blew on it. His breath passed through the word, the mirror, the unwritten line.
Adam heard a whisper in his ear. Something moved and stirred inside him. Ronan’s eyelashes fluttered darkly. 
(also maggie literally says that adam thinks ronan has nice eyelashes lmao which i think about a LOT in relation to this scene)

“A lot,” Ronan translated, and he was right, because, strangely enough, Ronan knew a great deal about how Adam worked. It was possible Adam had always been aware of this but had preferred to consider himself – particularly the more unsightly parts of himself – impenetrable. 

Adam finally sat down on one of the pews. Laying his cheek against the smooth back of it, he looked at Ronan. Strangely enough, Ronan belonged here, too, just as he had at the Barns. This noisy, lush religion had created him just as much as his father’s world of dreams; it seemed impossible for all of Ronan to exist in one person. Adam was beginning to realize that he hadn’t known Ronan at all. Or rather, he had known part of him and assumed it was all of him.

It should have been impossible. No one should have been able to dream any of these thing, much less all of them. But Adam had seen what Ronan could do. He’d read the dreamt will and ridden in the dreamt Camaro and been terrified by the dreamt night terror.
It was possible that there were two gods in this church.

Ronan crouched by the pew again, studying the list, his fingers running idly over his stubble as he thought. When he wasn’t trying to look like an asshole, his face looked very different, and for a tilting moment, Adam felt the startling inequality of their relationship: Ronan knew Adam, but Adam wasn’t sure he knew Ronan, after all.

Adam retreated to sit beside Mary as Ronan stretched out on the pew, rubbing out the dingy plan with the legs of his jeans. Something about his stillness on the pew and the funereal quality of the light reminded Adam of the effigy of Glendower they’d seen at the tomb. A king, sleeping. Adam couldn’t imagine, though, the strange, wild kingdom that Ronan might rule.
“Stop watching me,” Ronan said, though his eyes were closed.

What an impossible and miraculous and hideous thing this was. An ugly plan hatched by an ugly boy now dreamt into ugly life. From dream to reality. How appropriate it was that Ronan, left to his own devices, manifested beautiful cars and beautiful birds and tenderhearted brothers, while Adam, when given the power, manifested a filthy string of perverse murders.

“Democracy’s a farce,” Ronan said, and Adam smirked, a private, small thing that was inherently exclusionary. An expression, in fact, that he could’ve very well learned from Ronan.

He hadn’t stopped being thankful for his body. Hello, Adam Parrish’s formerly chapped hands, I’m happy to have you.

and then there’s a whole lot of other, possibly even more subtle things threaded through the series that build upon this relationship in a really complex and nuanced way, and highlight how ronan has always affected adam on an intensely deep level even if he never consciously acknowledges it or recognises it for what it is – for example, adam deciding to go to aglionby in part bc of that rich boy with the shaved head in the supermarket that he sees in his mind as ronan, or how he uses the word “lonesome” to refer to both himself and ronan (he thinks it over and over again about ronan in chapter 20 of bllb), emphasising this connection between the two of them that even gansey, cabeswater and the rest of the gang notice in that book. these aspects, unlike adam’s feelings for ronan, are easier to highlight and point to: “looking like a pair of horror movie twins”, how adam and ronan keep saying the same things at the same time and then exchanging wry glances, blue noticing them disappearing all the time together, gansey noticing ronan had not been afraid for adam when the scaffolding fell on him at aglionby bc he knew cabeswater would save him, etc. etc.

looking at all these elements separately, sure, i see how you could say there’s no evidence to support adam’s feelings for ronan. but add everything up, step back and look at the bigger picture? i really do believe adam is starting to reciprocate a romantic attachment. i’m not convinced he’s aware of it, but i do think the foundation is there. that’s the thing with maggie’s writing, it demands you to work for it, to look beyond what’s being said on the page and see a deeper conclusion. and every time i reread the series i’m more and more convinced that an important part of adam’s story that is being told is the evolution of his relationship with ronan and how his own feelings are transforming from platonic regard to something more. 

tl;dr – this text post sums it up pretty well:

adam parrish in the raven boys: ronan is an annoying pest and i only put up with him for gansey’s sake

adam parrish in blue lily lily blue: ronan is an actual God

lmao again this is all just my opinion so if you still don’t see it, that’s okay! some ships just don’t resonate with some people, no matter how canonical they are or aren’t. but i’ll leave you with what maggie herself says, which is that ronan has hope adam feels the same. so at this point, seeing as pynch is one of my biggest ever otps, i’m just keeping my fingers crossed that ronan is right :’)))

Why NH and SS won't win

NH and SS fans love to say Hinata and Sakura are truly in love with Naruto and Sasuke respectively. But Naruto’s feelings for Sakura aren’t love or are gone. Sorry, but why are they gone? Cause Naruto decides that he doesn’t want to spend every moment of every day, repeating Sakura’s name. That he has more important things to do besides being obsessed. Sorry but like my friend Inferno180 likes to point out, we never had a scene that Naruto questions his feelings. And if you think that means Naruto doesn’t love Sakura, sorry but you’re reading the wrong series(I guessed already). In Naruto, if something isn’t talked about, but isn’t countered it means it’s still true. People questioned if Naruto wanted to be Hokage because he stopped talking about it for about an arc. Well he told Obito, being Hokage is still his dream. People thought Ino didn’t like Sasuke anymore because she didn’t think about him. Well she cried when she heard the order for his death. The dream proved she still likes him. We didn’t hear about her crush on Sai either after the Kakuzu and Hidan arc. But the dream proved, she likes him still too. So why are Naruto’s feelings different. Why when Kishi kept these feelings consistent, that he would screw up Naruto’s feelings. 

Also why are Naruto’s feelings, a crush? A crush means they like the person. They want them to be happy and they want to together with them. But what makes love so different, so beautiful is the idea you would do ANYTHING to make them happy or safe. And Naruto DID that. When he heard how much Sakura liked Sasuke, he was heartbroken. 

If that was all, it be just a crush. But he made a promise that he would bring Sasuke back, smiling. Naruto would give up his chance with Sakura, so she’ll be happy. He was willing to crush his happiness for hers. If you can’t understand how important that is, you don’t know love. I’ve never fallen in love, but even I can understand that, why can’t you? Stop using the promise of a lifetime to attack Sakura or say how NS is dead. The Promise of a Lifetime is one of the biggest developments for NaruSaku. It showed when Naruto’s feelings moved to love. It doesn’t mean Naruto gave up. he still asked for dates. That alone means he didn’t give up. Also if Sakura was so horrible, why did she cry harder and thank Naruto.

Yes, she begged for his help. But at that point what could she do. Shikamaru forbid her from coming, Kakashi was away. Naruto was their teammate and he was on the team. Do you want her to ignore her feelings? Sounds harsh for a “girl in true love”. She liked Sasuke, he was in danger and he left, she was 13. What do you expect. She’s not perfect. NO ONE is, so stop expecting her to be.

In fact, in my opinion Hinata’s feelings and Sakura’s feelings for Sasuke are crushes. They care and want them to be happy. But its obvious they think more of themselves then the object of affection themselves. Never once has Hinata thought of Naruto over herself. Each time she helped him, it never hurt her. She would never get hurt for being cheated on. She had multiple healing creams when she gave one to him, she never stood up for him, she doubted him. In 573, she heard Naruto was fighting the mastermind how did she react?

That was all. She didn’t think of helping Naruto, she didn’t even worry about him. Instead it was just about HER. Its always about her. And that’s why I hate her. For anyone saying “but she was willing to die for him”. So? It was obvious that during her confession, she was only doing it for herself. She didn’t call for help, she didn’t try to break the blades, she ran for a suicide attack. She had all of Katsuyu’s info, she saw the fight, she KNOWS her approach was STUPID. Sacrificing your life is not the epitome of being in love. What matters is your motives, and Hinata’s was pure selfishness.

Same for Sakura’s feelings for Sasuke. It was just a schoolgirl crush at first. It did mature, but at the end it was still a crush. During her confession, she obviously couldn’t actually do everything for Sasuke otherwise, why did she scream this

“If you take one more step, I’ll start screaming”, she never planned of letting him leave or even leaving her home. Sorry actions speak louder than words. Her confession was saying without him, even with her family, friends and rest of Team 7 she’ll be lonely. Not the best thing to say to an orphan. 

So if Naruto’s feelings are love and Hinata’s feelings and Sakura’s for Sasuke are a crush. Why do I support NaruSaku? Because I only support Naruto. NO. Because I saw NaruSaku has a chance. And I was right. Because I can say with 100% certainty Sakura loves Naruto more than Hinata does and ever will. Like Naruto, Sakura has been willing to sacrifice for him. 

She was willing to put her life on the line and willing to lose her friendship with Naruto so he would be safe. She hated lying to him, but she did it to keep him safe. The idea of Naruto being in pain cause her to cry

She trusted him, she supported him, she knows him. 

Why should we support NaruHina or SasuSaku anyway? Because Hinata would be sad, because Sakura is still a Sasuke fangirl. Well so 1, Hinata is a side character, plenty of side characters get their hearts broken. In fact see Air Gear, Ikki(main character) chose Ringo(female lead). Kururu(side character) lost and she was the favorite choice in the fandom. 2, That isn’t Sakura. That hasn’t been Sakura since the early parts of the Chunin exams. Accept her character development.

If 615 was NaruHina big canon moment. Why couldn’t Hinata reach Naruto 

But Sakura could speak for him 

When Sakura interacts with Sasuke, she looks like this 

But when Naruto looks talks to her. She does this 

Why should I support NH when Hinata doesn’t understand Naruto? Why should I support SS when Sasuke turns Sakura into Hinata? I support NS because Sakura understand Naruto and because around Naruto, Sakura is herself and Naruto is happy for it. I don’t care if you call me bias. Because I am bias. EVERYONE IS BIASED. If I wasn’t, I’d be a computer. But I try to be objective and that’s why I ship NS. It makes sense, unlike the horribly done NH or the disgusting SS. If you ship NH or SS good for you. But stop twisting facts. 

How kpop disappointed me/ exo drama/ the impact in my life

Hello, my name is carol and its 3am, i should be sleeping right now but i found this blog and as reading these confessions i felt a strong urge to confess myself as well.
I’ve been dealing with this feelings and thoughts for a while now, but I cant say anything on my twitter fc (cause the other kpoppers will judge me) and i dont have any friend who would care enough for what i have to say.
So this is going to be long, i apologize.

I was emo, you know? Listened to emo bands and heavy music with screams and shit, and i was always against pop music because it was fake, and it was purely all for the money. So you have no idea how shocked i was when i found myself starting to like kpop.
I met kpop thanks to my best friend at the time (we’re not friends anymore), and she was emo as well, i remember when she would still wear black and dye her hair and talk about Get Scared and Devin Sola on twitter while she was discovering kpop and listening to SNSD. She showed me “I got a boy” mv and i was like…. okay… but nah.
A few months later she left the emo side and got really deep in the kpop world becaming an Exo fan and Chanyeol biased.
I just watched her while i was still digesting the idea that she left our emo world to be a fan of asian people.
I never thought it would happened to me.
But there was this music channel on tv and every week it would have this “ichiban interference” which would show asian music, kpop, cpop, jpop and jrock.

I missed my friend, and i felt distanced from her. So i started to watch that program to see if i could like kpop. And…….. I kind of did. I was just so excited to get back to having something in common with her and i just wrote the names of the groups i have liked while watching the program so i could search it later on.

*funny fact tho, somehow i already new shinee 2 years before i enter the kpop world for real, and even thought i didnt listen to them i would mantain this crush on choi minho and even like his pages on facebook.

The first group i got into was, of course, Shinee, because i already new them and already loved Minho. So until this day they are my babies and my ultimate group.

She was all into Exo and i just didnt really cared for them. But because it was important to her, i gave it a shot.
I entered the Exo fandom right after Kris left. I didnt had any problems to know who was who. Althought at the beggining i had a problem with sehun and luhan and for a while i thought they were the same person lol but that passed.
I also made an fc on twitter to be close with my friend again, which made me later on go very deep in the exo world. And because of all the problems they had, I also suffered a fucking lot being a part of their world.
-
As i said before, i was always against pop music because it was purely commercial. The thing that made me accept kpop was when i read about the trainee thing, and how they would work really hard for years and just really dedicate themselves to the maximum to acomplish their dreams. I thought that was very admirable. So i felt like it was okay for me to like kpop, because it was different and they were all very admirable people.
I thought it was a dream land you know? Get accepted in a company, be a trainee for a few years and then debut and become pretty and famous and rich.
But as soon, as me being an exo-l, exo started to fall apart, all of these delusional ideas i had about that lifestyle and this industry, began to crash.

When Luhan left I spend like, 4 weeks crying. No joke, i would start crying in the middle of the night and go running into my dads room so he could confort me.

I dont know how and why but Exo really took the best out of me. I would cry for anything they did. it was insane. But also im very sensible and i do cry a lot so idk.

The thing is, after that i got really hurt you know? Because i thought SM after kris leaving would be more rational about things and would treat the boys better. But no.
And now its Tao’s turn and this one… This one is just extremely fucked up. Because i know, i know very deep in my heart how Tao loves Exo and loves us fans. He was always the one who would try to make us feel better and confort us, and he always promised he would never leave. And now to be where we are now, i mean… It makes me realize how fucked up this industry is behind the scenes.
(As i am young to this fandom you’ll probably say i dont have the right to be this sad and blablabla. But I did watched showtime and i think once you watch that there’s no turning back, you’ll love each boy and cherish them to the maximum. Because i entered the fandom right when kris left, i didnt really cared for him, but after showtime i was like… really sad, and even thought i became a fan when they were ot11, i am ot12 in my heart. You might think i dont have the right to it but i dont care, i know my feelings towards it and i know how much i care about them)


So after that, and also that whole baekyeon scandal (it shocked me that baek and tae lost fans just because they fell in love. I do understand that they didnt handle things how it should’ve been handle but damn, have the fans never experienced falling in love with someone and wanting to share their love with others and show it to people, and how exciting everything is? not to mention baek is young and he always liked tae. I dont like her, and she is older, so i do think she as someone more responsible, should’ve known better), and honestly it really pisses me off how the fandom said it was marketing, BECAUSE GOD FORBIT THAT BAEKHYUN IS ACTUALLY STRAIGHT AND DOES NOT DATE CHANYEOL IN REAL LIFE!!!!!! That is one thing i dont have the patience. Im all up for homossexuality, but to see how hardcore these shippers can be and how the fans suddenly feel like they have the right to dictate the sexuality of their idol and anyone who says “no, he’s straight” is wrong and delusional… I mean… Come on.. Get off your high horse honey. (i dont know if it was markenting or not, i do not care either, i just hated how the fans reacted)
And seeing the korean media and how the netizens criticize everything the idols do that dont go acording to what they belive. And seeing how they are always making big drama out of nothing ( ex taehyung x bigbang). Seeing how the fans deal with all of this, where their idols cant even be themselves that they’ll instantly get criticized (ex: sehun and his comments on ig) …. I really hate that, the fact that the idols (not all idols) cant be themselves completely, they have to follow some rules (probably) to what they can or cant say, and they cant even be free on the internet either as the fans will judge them and the media as well. So I mean, how can I love someone and be fan of someone, that it isnt true? You know what I mean? How can I relate to you? I cant.
I just got so tired, Im exausted to say the least.

I wont say kpop ruined my life, because honestly shinee is still one of the few things that makes me happy and whenever im sad i listen to them and feel better. And Im really happy because Shinee is one group that remains intact, they never have any dramas with their name on it. Its just so peaceful for me to be a shawol. Also being a xiumin, lay and tao biased, they never failed to make me happy, and every time i see them i instantly gain a smile in my face. Also my parents support me much more with me liking kpop than with me liking, as they call it “noises and screams and dirty people who look dead”. Anddd my mom also likes choi minho so its pretty awesome when we talk about him and fight for him as in who he belongs to. (HE IS MINE MOM)

But i entered the kpop world thinking it would be magical and it would only bring joy in my life. But now im at a point where everything is just slowly being destroyed and the land i once thought it was bright and colorful is now all black and white and broken.
Not to mention how kpop took my life completely, i was never into going out (as i have social anxiety and panic attacks) but the fact that i would spend ALL of my daily hours on my fc just talking about koreans and chineses and saving their pictures religiously and spending hours organizing their albuns and stuff (my exo paste have 14 thousand pictures and this is just the pictures i would save while i was on twitter, without downloading any pack or anything)
I just…. this was a really long rant and im still keeping out a lot of other thoughts, this is just a resume basically.
I just wanted to say that im disapointed. There’s no better word than that. I felt like i was promised so many things while entering this world, but as things kept progressing a lot of things happened and my positive thoughts about it were slowly dying, and i compromized so much of myself and my life to it, to now being here, sad and all fucked up thanks to it.
Lately i dont stay on my twitter so much, i rarely enter it tbh. And i just spend my days reading or watching a serie or anything that its not related to asians and kpop because honestly i just need a break from it, a break to digest all of the things that happened in 2014, a break from this drastic change of (my) taste and just trying to deal with the true that it is: kpop is not what i looks like, yes the music is good, yes they look good and happy but we dont know what happens when no one’s around, we only know what we are showed and therefore, due to all the dramas that happened, i myself am incapable of trusting kpop again.
(I even started to listen to my emo bands again, so i could forget kpop for a while. This is what is helping me ‘keeping it real’)
I will always love my groups and will always support them, but I dont wanna go back to the place i was (dedicating my life to it). And now i definitely am more aware of everything, and if anything, one positive thing that kpop did was making me more smart and careful towards my trusting hability.
Thats it, thats my confession, it was really long im sorry. I started writing this at 3am and now is 4am.
*I have a question tho, it was only with me that after kpop i just dont feel atraction to ocidental guys like i used too? I was never really picky when it comes to men but after kpop now i do want them to be someone who take care of themselves, and have a nice skin, and dress nicely. Also i get crazy everytime i see an asian on the street, and i just find them much more atractive than the ocidental person.
*im brazilian so sorry for any mistakes, as english is not my first language.
*please be kind and try not to call me names. I know that for some people i’ll appear like a retarted girl, and maybe i am, but i just really needed to get this out of me. And if you want to know, im 16 and started to like kpop in the end of 2013 when i was still 14.

It was like a dream. The way my fingers clutched the concert tickets, holding on to them for dear life, until I finally let them fly free into the hands of the security guard at the arena. The way I wore a lanyard around my neck, letting everybody else know I’d won meet and greet passes to see the band before the show. The way he secretly scrawled his phone number onto my backstage pass after we took a photo together. It seemed so surreal.

anonymous asked:

It's funny that Darren's now the only one to have written an original song for Glee. It's also funny that you're obviously bias and therefore, your reason does not make any sense. Darren Criss is the reason MANY people started watching Glee in the first place. If it wasn't for Darren, many people wouldn't be watching it still to this day. Chris Colfer is wonderful, but so is Darren Criss. So back up and maybe take your biases somewhere where they are wanted.

First of all…….

It is very funny, Matt got to perform a song from his Album on Glee and direct it. Chris wrote a whole episode, AND Glee had Original songs on the show. Who cares about Darren’s song? His song outside of Glee do not matter, anyone can write a song for a tv show. A song that matters if its good its talked about, you get a number 1 song on billboards ect, and Darren’s song he wrote for Glee first of all sucks really bad and second of all will not be a top hit at all what so ever. 

Lea and Naya both had songs playing on the Radio outside of Glee, what about Darren? Where is his original music playing in my local radio station? Where his album? Oh yeah, it is shelved!

I’m biased? Really? You might message me again and bring up Hedwig so let me just state this right here right now:

Hedwig was suppose to close, but since Darren stans like yourself tweeted the show runners they figure that they maybe can squeeze some change out of you idiots before finally shutting it down since Darren manage to get money out of you suckers for HT$ when he was at the height of his popularity on Glee and there was people who liked him because he was fresh and new, I even liked him at the time and many many other people I know before he started showing his true colors and made me and many people see how untalented and disrespectful Darren really is. 

My prediction about Darren on Hedwig is he will have a big crowed the first few weeks because his fans will want to prove people like me wrong, but since his fan base have died a lot since Darren first started, the seats will become more and more empty, and then the critics will say how horrible his run is and Darren himself will show the world just how lazy he really is. 3 Weeks playing on HT$ got complaints from non Darren stans, lets see what people who do not were those pink sunglasses shades think after watching Darren fail doing a classic production of Hedwig for 12 weeks especially when people he come see him have seen people like Neal Patrick Harris already play the role. I hope REAL critics do come and see him just so you can shut the fuck up out of my inbo and take a damn seat. 

I can admit he was once popular because anyone who was a love interest of Kurt Hummel on Glee would have been popular at that time. Glee was one if the best and highly watched shows on air before Darren entered the show, Chris just won a Golden Globe and Kurt Hummel was America’s gay sweet heart so of course Darren playing Blaine singing Teenage Dream was gonna be a heart throb!

 Kurt’s fans wanted him to have a love interest, hell even people who was not Kurt’s main fans and just enjoyed Glee was excited for Kurt to finally have some one who was gay and can be a love interest so when Teenage Dream happened it was gonna be popular because how happy Kurt was! Kurt’s popularity made Blaine an interest to the Glee fans, Glee fans who were in the 10 millions at that time.

Then season 3 and 4 happened and people started to leave because the writing got horrible and then it became the Blaine and Rachel show and now look? Glee can barely scrape up 1 million viewers when it use to be able to easily have 10 million weekly. Darren might have brought a few thousand Star kid fans, but not 20 thousand, not a hundred thousand fans and most certainly not a million viewers to Glee. I can at least say that Darren most likely was responsible for about 20 thousand viewers who might have came because of Starkid. I will give him that much credit. but in tv viewers, 20 thousand is not a lot what so ever, it is not even a lot of youtube viewers.

Also just so you can see the viewers of Glee before Darren show up I will show you a small quick rating numbers to show you what a fool you are for coming up in my inbox tonight:

I will show you the pilot episode ratings, the highest episode ratings, and the final episode ratings of Glee season 1

  1. The pilot episode of Glee averaged 9.62 million viewers 
  2. Glee returned on April 13, 2010 with “Hell-O”, which was watched by 13.66 million viewers
  3. The final episode, “Journey to Regionals”, was watched by 11.07 million viewersand attained a 4.7 Nielsen rating in the 18–49 demographic, an increase of 18 percent on the previous episode, giving Glee the highest finale rating for a new show in the 2009–2010 television season

That was just season 1 of Glee! BEFORE Darren Criss even existed, he tried out for Finn Hudson and was rejected too thank god! Also looking at the ratings, Glee held a good 9 to 10 million viewership for the total season 1, well god damn Glee, you were popular!

Now, on to season 2 BEFORE Darren was thought of! Ah, I nearly forgotten, Chris won his Golden Globe for an episode in season 2 before Darren showed up also ;) That was back when Glee gave a shit about telling Kurt’s story before Darren ruined the show!

So I will now show the first episode of season 2 Glee ratings, then the highest rated episode, then the final season 2 episode:

  1. The season premiere episode, “Audition”, aired on September 21, 2010; it averaged 12.45 million American viewers 
  2. The second episode, which featured the music of Britney Spears, was also Glee ’​s second best showing at that point after its April 2010 return after a four-month hiatus, with 13.51 million viewers
  3. 11.80 million viewers for the final season 2 episode
  4. For the season as a whole, Glee was number 43 of 268 primetime shows that averaged at least a million viewers, with an average viewership of 10.11 million, while it tied for number 13 of 249 of shows that received at least a 0.5 rating in the 18–49 rating demographic, with a 4.1 rating average.

Basically season 2 was a good 10 milli viewers which was awesome! The highest rated episode was episode 2, and guess what? No Blaine! And also guess what? The viewers did not increase once Darren Criss joined! If they did, they would have Beat Britney/Brittany which had 13.51 million viewers!

Now, let us go on to season 3 when Darren was made an official main character shall we?! 

Since Darren became a Regular and season 3 writing started to have too much focus on relationship drama and not letting the characters be individuals, the ratings have dropped, it looks like Darren’s solos and screen time did not help Glee, Matter of fact I will even list ever single ratings for the episodes of season 3!”

The Purple Piano Project! It had the highest  views of the season and the fans of Glee got to have Blaine as a full time student in Lima yay! that’s what they wanted right? Maybe they did at that time before he showed what a waste of screen time he was!”

  1. The Purple Piano Project 9.27 viewers, 3 million viewers lesser than season 2! and a few hundred thousand less than the pilot!
  2. I am Unicorn 8. 60 million viewers„„ damn, where are the Darren fans who brought Glee more viewers at this episode? :( He even got to sing a solo in purple piano project and I am unicorn, I cant believe all the viewers Darren brought to Glee did not increase the second episode ratings! Like he just showed the US viewers that he was a permanent member on New Directions! Why did viewers leave this episode? D: Ok, let me stop with the comments for now and just list the season 3 episode views mkay!
  3. Asian F 8.42 million viewers
  4. Pot O Gold 7.47 million viewers
  5. The First Time! The Molester Blaine episode had 6.91 million viewers!
  6. Mash Off 7.08 million viewers
  7. I kissed a Girl 7.90 million viewers
  8. Hold On to 16 7.11 million viewers
  9. Extraordinary Merry Christmas 7.13 million viewers
  10. Yes/No 7.50 million viewers
  11. Michael  9.07 million viewers
  12. The Spanish Teacher 7.81 million viewers
  13. Heart 6.99 million viewers
  14.  Ok I lied, I got tired of writing down ever episode ratings, basically it stayed in the 6 millions until the last Glee episode
  15. Goodbye the final episode of season 3 had 7.46 million viewers 

So Season 3 was an average of 7 million viewers, season 2 was an average of 10/11 million, Season 1 was an average of about 9/10 that was all before Darren Criss showed up. Now lets go to season 4 viewers where Blaine was given more screen time after cheating on Kurt and we had the noobies aka old glee characters 2.0! 

So lets see how the ratings suffered when Glee made Darren the ‘leading male’ in season 2! And gave him more songs and Screen time than the original males and 3 year leading males of Glee, Cory and Chris and even Kevin! I am getting bored so I am gonna do it like I did with seasons 1 and 2 and list the first episode of season 4, then the highest, and then the last, then will say how much was the average viewers of season 5 mkay!:

  1. The New Rachel, who the viewers all found out was Blaine, gained  7.41 million viewers
  2. Britney 2.0, The highest episode of season 4 pulled a season 2 with Britney tribute, probably because the Glee viewers thought it would be just as good but was disappointed, gained 7.46 viewers
  3. The views went down hill from then, mostly stayed at  around 5 million viewers
  4. All Or Nothing, which ended showing Blaine with that ring he had for Kurt, the guy he cheated on, even though Blaine was still in highschool, he and Kurt was not together, and Burt told Blaine no when he asked for Kurt’s hand in marriage like if Kurt was a girl or something. That episode had gained 5.92 viewers for season 4 finale 

After that, Glee advertised the engagement for Klaine, Cory Passed away that summer and it was a real hard time for all of the Glee fandom. While we all needed a tribute for Cory and Finn, Glee decided to promote that engagement so we got the two Beatles Tribute for season 5 then The Quarter back. 

Now, Blaine will have been a series regular for 3 full seasons once Season 5 was finished. Now let us see how many viewers was here! I will go with the first episode viewers, then the highest, since The Quarter back was special, I will list the second highest,(Not the fseason 5 premire) then list the final episode of season 5! 

  1. Love Love Love, the highly promoted Klaine engagement episode gained 5.06 million viewers, It was promoted as a Beatles Tribute with Klaine duets and Blarren singing yet was lesser than season 4 finale! Wow! Not only did season 5 had less viewers than the season 4 finale, the viewers started leaving more and more!
  2. The second highest episode was Tina In The Sky with Diamonds at 4.42 million viewers
  3. The viewers officially started to leave when Glee showed Sam and Blaine going to New York In Moving Out (Which had 4.09 million viewers) after Chris, Lea, and Naya just won their PCA awards for fan favorites and Darren and Blam and Klaine lost theirs. It was obvious Viewers and fans of Glee did not care to see Blaine or Blam (Sam stopped being a fan favorite once they dumbed him down in season 4 to become Blaine’s best bro, Glee ruined both Sam and Tina’s character for Blaine.)
  4. The untitled Rachel Berry Project 1.87 Million viewers

Once Blaine and Sam moved on down and New York was no longer what the fans wanted anymore, Glee had an average of 2/3 million viewers, the worst viewers for Glee ever.

Now it is season 6 and obviously the fans have left anon, why isn’t Darren’s fans that he brought to Glee giving us more views? Why is Glee’s average viewers are lesser than 2 million? Including the double gay wedding anon? Why isn’t Darren’s song for Glee promoted all over my t.v like Amber’s song was or Chris episode? Amber got to do an interview for Color Blind on T.v and Chris did interview on popular tv interview for Old Dogs New Tricks too even though Glee did not promote them, they got to promote their work, what about Darren? 

Now, I might be biased, but you are pure delusional to state such bull shit in my inbox. I gave you my proof anon, where is yours? What viewers or critical awards (Not fan voted or best new guy award from Teen choice ect.) Did Darren gain and win? Did he win any actor guild awards? Get any Emmy nominations or wins? Golden Globe nominations or wins? No? Then shut the fuck up! 



Now anon, I will go back to your last remark to me, let me bold your words so I can respound to you in Kind ;)

Your exact words above anon is, ……..


Darren Criss is the reason MANY people started watching Glee in the first place. If it wasn’t for Darren, many people wouldn’t be watching it still to this day. Chris Colfer is wonderful, but so is Darren Criss. So back up and maybe take your biases somewhere where they are wanted.


So… as you can see from this long ass response I gave you, your first statement is false: MANY people DID NOT start watching Glee for Darren Criss, Glee had an average of 9/20 million viewers in season 1. 

In season 2 Glee held an average viewers of 10/11 million viewers and the highest rated episode was episode 2 of season 2 and that was 13 million viewers and Darren Criss or Blaine was not relevant at all to Glee. 

Season 3 of Glee with Darren as a main character had lost viewers and the average ratings was about 7 million viewers, nearly 4 millions viewers :LEFT after Darren was made a regular, what happened? You told me he was the reason why Glee gained Viewers anon :(

Season 4 got even worse, Season 5 was really horrible, and now lok at season 6, Glee can not scrape even 2 million viewers and it was an average 10/11 million viewer show before Darren Criss joined and became a reglar. 

Blaine was popular simply because Kurt and Chris was popular, any guy that was Kurt’s love interest at the time when Glee was super popular and Chris was winning awards for the show and was America’s sweet heart, would have been popular. Blaine the character was not a fan favorite, Kurt’s boyfriend was. 

Now, if Blaine and Kurt broken up in season 2 and Kurt dated someone else, guess what would have happened? The new guy Kurt was involved with would have gotten just as much, maybe even more praise that Darren. Especially if the guy could sing better, was taller, and attractive. 

Glee was at the top of its popularity then and Glee should have been smart and let Kurt date someone else, the rest of the characters of Glee had more than one bf/gf in a season, Glee should hazve made it interesting and gave Kurt another lobve interest as an option inseason 2 and that might have even saved the ratinbgs and GAINED ratings in season 3 if they would have hired an allready famous actor who can sing as Kurt’s new boyfriend.

 Darren Criss is not that great of a singer, his acting is horrible, and his looks are mediocre at best.

 if Glee could have gotten someone like Zac Efron to play Kurt’s NEW boyfriend after Blaine, trust me, the world would have loved him more because he would be able to sing better than Darren, could act better than Darren, was taller than Darren, and for Hollywood shallowness, his abs and hot face and hair would have had the Glee fans and girls going nuts! Damn, Glee should have hired Zac Efron! 

Yes, I am being funny cause the whole 17 again thing. Most likely the person who will be playing the lead is Billy cause he can actually pass as 17 still unlike Darren will by the time the production starts sometime in 2016 lol! And Speaking of Zac Efron, lets have a look at what we could of had as Kurt’s new bf via season 2 and 3 shall we? ;)


Who Glee should have hired as Kurt’s second bf…..

Who us viewers and Kurt got stuck with for 4 horrible seasons with instead


And Blaine can act all crazy and possesive over Kurt and scream at Kurt’s ONLY friend…..

Yet do shit like this?

Be a Cheater

Dont forget how he thought Kurt was just Kurt and not hot…. Yeah what an awesome and supportive person Bland is, not!


Then jump all over Sam and twerk on Ryder!

Yet he can do all this and then have the nerve to be insecure with Kurt about Elliott and Kurt getting noticed at Nyada? LOL, What a waste of a character screen time that could have gone to the Originals , what a waste of a love interest for Kurt that could have gone to several other actors with actual talent! Darren Criss ruined Glee, and that is 1000% The Truth! Mad? So fuckin what, its now 5 am, wanna then inbox me on anon and talk about my grammar, spelling, ect, idgaf im tired and this post is long as fuck, so my feelings are

Rant on Taeun

Because of this post.

For starters, it’s fine that you didn’t like Taeun as a couple on wgm because everyone has their dislikes. It’s also fine that you like the fact that Taeun “won’t be a thing anymore.”

However, it is not fine to make assumptions about things that you know nothing about.

Granted, none of us really know much about any of our idols, only what they claim to be true. 

Taemin does like extreme sports and Naeun was willing to bungee jump with him because of it. She did a lot of things that he has suggested. 

“Naeun doesn’t fit his ideal type.”

Everyone has an ideal type that they look for in a person, but honestly, if everyone went around expecting to find someone that met their ideal tastes, everyone would be single.

An ideal type is basically a pretty term for a person that you dream to be yours. If everyone expected their dreams to magically appear before them, then they’d be missing some really great chances with some really great people.

Yeah, it would be nice to date somebody with your ideals or shares your exact same interests, but the chances of finding someone that fits your description down to a T is very low.

“Taemin’s persona on the show was idiotic.”

When has Taemin’s personality ever placed him as smart? This kid acts so childishly during concerts where he gets the chance to interact with fans. This is the same kid that makes the most disgusting faces at cameras because he is just that dumb. This child will eat so unattractively and not give one fuck that he is being filmed. He is the most stupidest of all my biases and because he is not afraid to act a fool in front of a girl that he will have to let go of soon enough, shows that this Taemin is the same Taemin that we all see on stage while making horrible faces into a camera. 

This Taemin that had ideals for a girl he would come to like, expections, totally forgotten because he met someone that was the complete opposite of his ideal girl; a girl that laughed at jokes that we are embarrassed for him telling. A girl that bungee jumped with him despite her being terrified. A girl that ate, really ate despite there being so many cameras. A girl that shed tears for Taemin because she didn’t want to say goodbye. 

My point here is that any person, especially boys will act a fool in front of a girl they like. They will do the stupidest shit just to show off in front of them, say things to get the person to like them more, or even act a certain way because they may think that it’s what that person wants to see from them.

And Taemin and Naeun are just one of many examples that you can find a person that you really like without that person fitting your ideals.

((((((((((Now for my immature small note: it’s fucking okay to have your own fucking opinions, but i’m so sick of you little shits bashing the fuck out of my otp and bashing naeun. like it isn’t enough that she has seen such bashing but fuck. you have to bash her even after they left the fucking show? Like we all have our own fucking opinions and shit, but be fucking honest with yourselves. you’ll never find someone that you dream of- sorry, I mean, that your ideal type is. that isn’t how this works. and so what if naeun isn’t what taemin was fucking looking for? he sure as shit isn’t going to fly to your city and start dating you because you are #1 taemint and you deserve to date him because best fan. if he fucking likes naeun (which he clearly does i mean this boy cried for her), let him like her. don’t get fucking butthurt because you aint her.))))))))))

Kanye's Interview for Style.com

I’s quite daring to keep clothes that simple. Nearly every designer over-embellishes and over-designs, and then people don’t actually want to wear the clothes. I wouldn’t consider myself to be a designer in that way, I just want to propose a solution to problems that me and my wife and my friends face. I sit with a group of problem solvers and say, “In this situation, I would like to have this.” And then from my art background—from my heart background—I have a perspective on color that I’ve always wanted to get across. What I thought was interesting was taking a red and doing it in a sports bra, and as opposed to the usual super-techy fabrics that people use for gym clothes, to really have more of a dry approach to the gym clothes. Even with the way we took Adidas socks and turned them into sports bras. It’s like, “What is almost like Alaïa that you can sweat in?” A sock! And it had to only be the sports bra because it looked really funny once [it] started going into the biking shorts. I tried that and that didn’t come out so well.

And did Adidas give you a completely free hand to do whatever you like? How was working with them? No, they put some boundaries, but solutions come from boundaries. I stepped in, we had to learn [to work with] each other. I had to learn what my voice was because I was still coming off of doing crocodile this and almost irresponsible takes on designing clothes to make up for a lack of skill. And now I have a real purpose to what I want to present. Adidas is the perfect place to be. If someone was to say, “Hey, do you want to go to a high-end house now?” I’d absolutely say no. I’m not trying to [sound] presumptuous, I’m just saying that if in my wildest dreams I was presented with the opportunity, I would absolutely say no at this point. Because I’m only concerned with making beautiful products available to as many people as possible … The least I could do is spend my time trying to give other people a piece of the so-called good life. Everyone should have the good life. It’s like [Amancio] Ortega [founder of Zara] and H&M group. Before that happened, you could tell who came from money, who didn’t, who had a bigger paycheck, who didn’t. It was about separation and I think high fashion is about elitism and separation, and I am completely opposed to that … [though] I’ll still go to crash the Saint Laurent fashion show so I can be closer to the genius that Hedi [Slimane] has, even if the prices aren’t genius, even though the prices are completely unfair.

It’s funny that you bring up Hedi Slimane because of the reaction on our site in the comments section. Your work is very different, but the only two people who get that extreme a reaction, for and against, are Hedi and you. I don’t know what inspires people to either absolutely hate it or absolutely love it, but there’s no in-between with you. Have you looked at the comments on this collection? Have you seen what people are saying? Oh, no, they just need to have the clothing. Anyone that has a negative comment just needs to have the clothing in their life. I don’t need to read that because it’s not going to inspire me in any way. I don’t need any more negativity in my life [laughs] to make me work harder. I can’t possibly physically work harder. I have to tell myself to go to sleep.

What about the reviews? Did you look at the reviews, or are you in a place now where you don’t care about that kind of thing? I don’t read the reviews, because it’s some kind of backhanded compliment or something focusing on not the main point. It was really difficult to do this. It would be difficult to make a proposition this simple for any designer. So many people told me that it had to have logos or it had to have this, but I fought for exactly what I wanted in my closet. I fought for what was true to me … There are a lot of kids in the streets that have waited for someone to speak for them and what they’re doing and for them to connect with it directly. And that’s what I’m here to do. Just as the last photo showed you, I’ve got an army behind me, so unless the reviewer is recognizing the army, they’re not recognizing the tank coming. I mean, I don’t know if people felt this, but it’s too late. Like the Drake album says, if you’re reading this, it’s already too late. If you’re seeing this, it’s already too late.

Tell me about the casting. It was every different type of body. Was that always in your mind as you were designing? One hundred percent. Do you know how many fights I’ve had with intellectual fashion people about the idea of putting bodies on the—I won’t even call it the runway. What would you call a place where a military brigade stands? It’s no longer called the runway for me.

The parade grounds, maybe? Yes, the grounds. Because in an army, people are different sizes. No one says you can’t join the army unless you’re 6'2". People sometimes ask, “Why does Kanye West pander to fashion in this way?” I don’t pander to it, I’m trying to learn from it. Because I believe there’s some information in it that can help people have better lives. And it’s being held and blocked and not given to the people. So this is very much a Robin Hood approach that I have to making clothes. Before, the companies, the big groups, the LVMHs, the Kering Groups, created the workplace [for] the beautiful souls that go and dream of fashion their entire lives. [They] go to the Harvard of design, Parsons, or the Yale of design, Saint Martins, they dream of one day being a part of the magic that fashion week creates and what these lines create. And they felt that if they worked in mass [market], which had—past tense—a negative connotation, that their dreams would be stepped on, crushed, and they would be thrown in some office in the garment district and never get to feel the glory of the true Paris runway. But when I did concerts, two, three years ago, when [Central Saint Martins] professor Louise Wilson was alive, I’d give 100, 200 free tickets to Saint Martins students in London. I did runway shows—one of the things that was successful about the runway shows is that there are people that I hired straight out of Saint Martins that went on to work for Balmain, that went on to work for Givenchy. And that made me a part of the system, as opposed to when you think of the idea of a celebrity hiring somebody, you’d be more embarrassed to have that name on your résumé. And now, I’ve got such a hard reputation of screaming, of doing this type of thing, if you’ve got my name on your résumé—

You can handle anything? You can handle anything! [laughs] It’s like New York City, the person. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. But seriously, because we don’t take the shit. So now I’m able to go and hire people directly from Parsons, people directly from Saint Martins, and that was the key. These super-dreamers, these super-passionate people, these super-special spirits and souls—they were looking for a place to go. And now we have a place where you not only can create in an environment that’s comparable to creating at a fashion house or creating at Apple or at Pixar, but also you can connect with people the way that H&M or Zara or, of course, Adidas can connect with people.

Do you feel that high fashion is sort of old-fashioned in a way? I believe the category of ready-to-wear should be removed. I’m biased, but I think the best red-carpet look of all time—if not, one of the top five—was my wife’s look at the Grammys. You know what [Jean Paul Gaultier] just did. He said, “Fuck the shit. I’m making real shit. I’m doing perfume and couture.” And by focusing on that, he delivered … I just think for me as a person that dresses the most photographed person in the world, I get bored with ready-to-wear really easily. Here’s this glamorous being, this modern-day Helmut Newton girl, and you just get this “mid” thing. I just feel like we’ve been hit with this barrage of extreme medium. And you never go and ask, “Hey, can I get an extreme medium?”

Tell me about dressing Kim. Why is that important to you? Do you see it as similar to your design process, dressing her? It’s learning. She was always my muse, now she’s become other designers’ muses. Or designers’ muses, because like I said, I don’t want to disrespect designers by calling myself a designer, I just think I have a vision of something that I want to do. But God has a special way to teach people through life. I guess I got a little more credit for my second collection than my first, for whatever that is worth. But soon as we started dating, fashion people were really opposed to the idea of reality stars. And all the relationships, the somewhat friends that I had somewhat built up, completely turned their backs on her and me. They already had their back to her, and now they turned it to me. The so-called traction that I was getting in the high-fashion world was completely thrown out the window and I was finally allowed to go to school, where every day I was in my mom [Kris Jenner]’s house, in my little brother’s old room, Rob’s old room, re-tailoring a Céline skirt, re-tailoring a Saint Laurent jacket, re-tailoring a Zara top, re-tailoring Wolford … And day by day by day, [Kim and I] learned, we got better. We looked at the photographs together and she improved my style, we improved each other.

That’s fascinating because a lot of designers don’t work with a woman’s body like that. I think that’s one of the problems with fashion right now, so I find it fascinating that you’re working directly with her. With the body of all bodies, right?

And a different body than you see in fashion most of the time. That’s what we were talking about with the Adidas collection. And how do you present that in a way that’s sexy and still dignified. And that’s part of the reason why I work with really strong women, like Vanessa [Beecroft, the artist who staged the Adidas show], that will not allow a woman to even be halfway disrespected. It’s such a far cry from what you would traditionally hear and see in rap. It was a complete new education.

We can talk about the staging. First of all, I have to ask you about the wait. People did have to wait a long time outside. Is this something that you would have done differently in retrospect? Yeah, I apologize that people had to wait. That’s definitely not something I did on purpose. I actually had no idea what time it was. I wasn’t looking at the clock or in charge of that. It’s literally my first proposition in three years. So I apologize for the wait, to the people that had to actually wait at the New York fashion show. I apologize to the kids that had to wait in the 42 theaters where we streamed the show across the globe, I apologize to them for the wait. Let me just explain something to everyone. I’m sorry. I’m a human being. I’ve got opinions, I’m not always right, I’m not always on time, I don’t always say things in the proper way, but my intentions are always extremely pure. My purpose is extremely just.

Did you feel that you needed the voiceover at the beginning of the show? Why not let the clothes just speak for themselves at that point? I think that question is a little bit offensive.

The reason I’m asking is because the wait and then the voiceover set it up for the audience to not be on your side when it started, I’m not asking to try to offend you… This audience isn’t on my side, anyways. It’s the fashion audience. They’re not even on their own side.

That’s true. So, tell me about the clothes. I think you said you started working on the collection 18 months ago? I started 18 years ago. I mean, if we’re talking about the wait, what about my wait? These photographs right here that I’m showing you of these garments and how they’ve been presented, in my opinion are equal to any—not equal to Miuccia [Prada], but equal to a lot of things that are considered to be high-end. What else do you want from me? It’s hard, it’s hard for everyone, and it was a thousand times harder for me. I’m not trying to, you know—I didn’t even want to focus on any of the issues that I’ve already said, it’s like, just listen to the old interviews, and anyone that is more offended by the words that I said at the beginning than inspired, you know, I’m the spark. It’s up to people to be oil or water. If you’re water, your life’s already over. If you’re oil, like the age of the kids that were standing there, you’ll probably be sparked and do something really dynamic in life.

You said 18 years—I’d like to talk about that. When did you first become interested in fashion? Was it while you were growing up or later that you became more interested in that? It’s in my code. I went to my grandfather’s funeral and my cousin stood up and told this story about how he won best-dressed in high school because his mom was a tailor. And I looked to the left of me and the lady was just as—and I hate this word—but just as chic … I dislike the concept of chic being the highest compliment for a human being. I’d rather someone be nice than to be chic. But regardless, this person that was sitting to the left side of me was both nice and chic. And to the right side, this person was also extremely nice and chic and a real person in Oklahoma City. And I looked at the entire funeral and I said to myself,This looks just as good, if not better, than fashion shows that I go to in Paris. And I realized that it had all been a scam, that it had all been smoke and mirrors to present this concept that a straight black guy out of Chicago that’s a rapper, that’s married to a reality star, could somehow not design a coat, that can’t design a T-shirt, that can’t have enough of an opinion. You know, it’s like voting. Fashion is merely an opinion. And I’ve got a lot of opinions.

I’ve heard that about you. Adidas allowed me to be in a position to give mine.

There was that article in The New York Times at the weekend that talked about the lack of diversity in fashion, that there are not many black designers in fashion. Is that something that you think about? Racism and the focus on racism is a distraction to humanity. It would be like focusing on the cousin from your mom’s side versus the cousin on your dad’s side. We’re all cousins. We’re all the same race. To even focus on the concept of race, it’s like—perhaps people give me an extra cookie for the fact that my color palette is so controlled and I’m black. When someone that’s like, racist, comes up to me at A.P.C. and says, “I thought it would be a bunch of animals on your shirts,” because they heard that I rapped. But it just makes the journey interesting. We came into a broken world. And we’re the cleanup crew. And we’re only cleaning up by helping each other.

Coming back to reviews, you did learn from the two shows in Paris, and I don’t know if that was because of what was written or your own experience. You said that to me earlier, that’s why your focus is so strong here, because you went through that. It had nothing to do with people’s words, it had to do with experience. I went to Hawaii for eight months and worked on Dark Fantasy because I had the resources and I had the record deal to do it. I could be like Nicolas [Ghesquière] or Karl [Lagerfeld] in the music space because I had the resources. And every designer out there knows. You talk to Haider Ackermann, you talk to any of these guys, they know that resources are so important—the proper backing, the proper CEOs, the proper distribution, the proper fabrics, the proper production person in the studio. And to make an entire team work together with the kind of egos that come along in fashion is practically impossible for anyone. And that’s why people take those luxury deals because they know that these bankers will give them a proper structure. Every designer, whether you go to Kering Group or Jones Group, you want a structure. An artist needs a structure so that they can be an artist. There’s no comment that would have given me the structure. I had to go and meet CEO by CEO by CEO, fabric person by fabric person by fabric person, designer by designer by designer. So anyone that’s out there that gave me a bad review on my first collection and felt that that helped me do better now, fuck you. You didn’t help me. You just talked. And then you talked about the next show.

Do you feel you have that structure now with Adidas, with the team? I have a slightly better structure.

It’s not where you want it to be, but it’s on the way? It’s on the way. We’re constantly growing, we’re constantly building. I mean, this is the beginning of something really big. This is the beginning of something truly democratic. You know, I am here to take the best talents from fashion and give them to the people. Constantly. It’s not some weird promotional lineup BS, like Versace doing something for H&M and for that one moment in someone’s life they can have the one shirt.

So when’s it going to be in stores? We’re going to do some injections within the next three months. The camouflage pieces will be out within the next three months. I want to point out one thing to all the people who only work in fashion and don’t really take full consideration of this thing called the real world. People say, “Hey, Kanye, you’re going against all odds.” And I say, wait a second, the shoes sold out within the first 10 minutes. 9,000 shoes. So everyone, the odds are with me. The people are with me. Now it’s up to you to choose whether or not I’m chic enough to sit at your dinner table. And I could give a fuck about your dinner table, by the way. I’ve got my own petrified Rick Owens table in my house. Is that chic enough?

I think I’ve got my headline for the homepage. So the sneakers sold out, 9,000 pairs, but the clothes—are they going to be limited edition? I hate the concept of limited edition completely. I hate the concept of separatism. Elitism. Classism. We’re all equal. The only thing that’s valuable is time. It’s the only thing we can’t get back. The only luxury is time. Let’s stop playing games with each other and let’s start helping each other. If someone really feels that there’s something that I can improve on, do like Pat McGrath and come to the fucking show and help me. Do like Vanessa Beecroft and come and help me. Because I’m not here for this to be about me. I’m here to help people. I’m here to help the 14-year-old version of myself that couldn’t afford shit.

How much will the camo jacket be? Not as cheap as I would like it to be. We’re working on the prices now, I don’t have the exact prices. But what I will tell you is that we’ll eventually get them super-inexpensive. And it will be all about everyone having them.

Did you look to anyone, like Margiela, Helmut Lang. What influences— You guys know my fucking influences. I’ve got four influences and it’s written all over the face, you know the combination. Just as much as Drake is influenced by Kanye West, you know my fucking influences. You see Raf Simons right there, you see Helmut, you see Margiela, you see Vanessa [Beecroft], you see Katharine Hamnett. It’s blatantly right there. I’m not going to try and act like I was influenced by a fucking dog walking down the street that broke its ankle that I had a heartfelt discussion with. I had a heartfelt discussion with all of these fucking Helmut Lang images that I stared at for so many years. I had a heartfelt discussion with my Tumblr.

The point is you’re choosing your influences. I know, for example, you’re a fan of Thom Browne, but you’re not looking to Thom Browne here. You’re choosing what’s relevant. Also, workwear, utility, the idea of being a dad, no time to look in the mirror because I’m looking at my daughter, I’m looking at my wife. And I’ve got to take her to dance class.

Let’s talk about the personal evolution of your style. I also just wanted to say a major influence was the London riots because I was living in London at that time and saw the way that the kids wanted the clothes and I didn’t have the skill set to do the more inexpensive clothes. This designer said to me one time, we were looking at something online, “This looks like a really bad couture designer that no one knows.” Think about the idea of a really terrible couture designer, which there are a lot of. I didn’t have the skill set to do inexpensive clothes. Now I have a team of really, really great designers that speak in a very Apple, Pixar-type [way].

A lot of it seems to me to come from your personal style, too, especially as it’s developed over the last couple of years. Would you say that’s true in the Adidas collection? Oh, yeah, definitely. With my first collections, they would say, “I want to see more of you.” And I didn’t even know who I was. And it was far less defined who I was, and I didn’t know who I was until I had a daughter. And then I realized that the purpose of life was to protect her and my wife at all costs. And that is who I am.

I know you have a lot of respect for Ralph Lauren, and there is something very democratic about the way that Ralph designs. It’s not just high-end runway, it’s something people wear through every aspect of their lives. Is Ralph someone you admire in that sense? Ralph is the god. And that’s all I want to say about Ralph.

With the collaboration you did with A.P.C., did you feel that it was a stepping stone in this direction and now you’ve sort of gone all the way? Yeah, there are a lot of similarities to the collaboration. You know, there were walls of class to be broken. I felt it was important for me to present in a fashion context, to earn a cultural degree in some way. In the same way that people who go to Harvard have to stay up, you know, pop a Xan, do some test—you know that when you see that show, that I lost sleep. You know that that wasn’t the normal way that people context celebrity clothing, you know that there was something extremely authentic about the process, you know it was something very focused about the way that all of these items are supposed to be an addition to your wardrobe as opposed to an opposition in your closet. It’s supposed to become friends with what you already have in your closet.

Do you feel that it’s important to do the runway each time, every season? Just with the way that you’re talking about democracy and getting it into people’s hands, would you consider releasing it other times of year? We’ll have more injections. I eventually want it to be brick-and-mortar. One of my dreams was to be the head creative director of the Gap. I’d like to be the Steve Jobs of the Gap.

Well, from what I’ve heard, they could use you. Perhaps this is a bit of a demo tape. When I say Steve Jobs of the Gap, as I talk to the people at the Gap right now [leans into tape recorder], I’m not talking about a capsule. I’m talking about full Hedi Slimane creative control of the Gap is what I would like to do. And I can say this because it doesn’t conflict with my Adidas contract. [laughs]

And what’s up with Nike these days?I’m sure they’re doing OK. [laughs]

I’ve got to ask you just one more question. Did you see the controversy over the last A.P.C. collection from Jean Touitou, where he referenced “In Paris” and he used the N-word in his presentation? Racism is a distraction to humanity. Jean Touitou is one of the most humane people I know. Jean Touitou had my family have dinner with him every time we came to Paris. And there are a lot of people who own fashion companies who didn’t.
