HETERONORMATIVITY HAS LEAD ME TO VIEW MR. BRIGHTSIDE THE WRONG WAY FOR 12 YEARS OF MY LIFE, BUT NOW I AM WOKE AND UNDERSTAND THAT MR. BRIGHTSIDE IS THE ICONIC BISEXUAL ANTHEM WE’VE BEEN TRAGICALLY UNAWARE OF
H-H-H-HERE IT IS…the song I wrote for Michael (or rather, that Michael wrote for Jeremy) in chapter two of 24-Hour Life Tickets!
The lyrics aren’t exact since I sorta messed up at one part but wHATEVER
Also please ignore the horrible quality I recorded this in my basement and with my phone so it’s nOT THE BEST And yeah it’s all acapella since I can’t play an instrument to save my life there’s some clapping in there to give it a nice beat but thas about it frens
Please keep in mind that I am in no way a professional songwriter or anything remotely like that;; I just did this for fun? And I came up with this randomly I didn’t really plan it or anything lol
Now please excuse me while I go and scream into the void
Redesigned Book Covers - Percy Jackson And The Olympians
August 18th 2016 // Happy 23rd Birthday to Percy Jackson, the only boy that has made such a profound impact on my life. Percy has always been there for me since I was 12 years old, and his stories have changed the last 10 years of my life immensely. I cannot even begin to express how many times Percy Jackson has helped me out of terrible times, and how much I relate this series as a lifeline to my childhood, how much I see this as a window into happier fantasies. I’ve made friends over these books, and is the only only series other than Harry Potter that I will cherish until I die. This is my comfort series. It may sound ridiculous, but Percy is more than just some fictional character. Thank you, Rick Riordan, for giving me and millions of other children out there a friend in Percy Jackson. (legit tearing up writing this omg)
Jared on Jensen: Did my short but handsome friend sing last night?
Jared is in a weird headspace about having a daughter.
Jared played the keyboard, “Right Here Waiting.”
While Jared is sassily shaking his ass, the screen behind them freezes showing Jensen’s priceless reaction to Jared’s shenanigans and cracks them both up lol (link x)
J2 spent their distillery tour yesterday giggling about the bung holes lol, which is the term for the hole that is cut out of the top of the barrel.
Jensen said Jared started giggling every time the tour guides said the words “bung hole” and Jensen goes, “Once he started, then I start…the two of us are literally like Beavis and Butthead in the back [of the tour].”
Now Jensen plays the keyboard while Jared sings, “la la la.” (link x)
The boys start stealing each other’s mics.
Jensen: Every day of my life… Jared: For 12 years haha.
Jared plays the piano while Jensen dances.
Jared is touching Jensen constantly :P
Jared teasing Jensen: This guy has a birthday coming up. 86. Looks great.
Jared goes out in the crowd for a question to give his mic to a girl :)
As Jared tries to hop back onstage and fails, Jensen encourages him by saying, “Stephen Amell could do it.” Jared makes it onstage with the next leap lol. (link x)
Jared: I wouldn’t say it in front of him but nobody plays Dean like Ackles.
Jared wants to watch the series finale in Lawrence, Kansas with fans.
The boys talk about missing Kim Manners </3
They give a shout out to Nina Lopez-Corrado. Jared says he adores her.
J2 also give props to director Richard Speight, Jr!
Jensen just patted Jared on the head :)
Jared was giving a fan some suggestions on how to be happy. Says he had a solo dance party last night.
Jared is sitting on the stage while talking about this and how being away from family is hard but that this is good, too, for his mental health. This is when Jensen walked over and put a supportive hand on Jared’s head. He then gives Jared a little hair ruffle for good measure <3
Jared reaches out and holds hands with a fan in the audience (possibly the same one he was talking to about being happy).
The support always goes both ways: Jared helps Jensen up when at one point Jensen was on his back onstage :)
I don’t get why straight people get so upset at the concept that not all characters in music videos, books, movies, TV shows etc… have to be straight? Like y'all wanna come at me with “straight erasure” and shit but y'all legit erased my sexuality from my life for the first 12 years of it so like u can deal with a a fucking LGBTQ+ character.
I am pretty sure this took 12 years of my life.
But I hope you all still like it :’)
Traditional 3d effects are difficult lemme tell ya 😵 @markiplier I loved this so much! You all put an amazing amount of effort into the series and it came out amazingly!❤❤
I had a realization the other day that seems obvious in retrospect, but I hadn’t put these two things together before.
I was telling my mom that I’m kind of dreading having a private practice someday because it’ll mean working lots of late nights to accommodate my clients’ schedules and make enough money, and as I know from working 12-8 last year, that’ll wreck my social life. She was like, “So you’ll have a social life on the weekends.” And I’m like, and what, spend every weekday night alone in my apartment because it’s too late to go out and see people? She gave me this knowing look and was like, “Well, hopefully you won’t be *alone*…”
That’s when it hit me that this thing–this whole monogamous couple/nuclear family ideal thing–directly enables work to take over our entire lives. Because, yes, if I had someone living in my house–in my bedroom, even–who prioritizes me higher than anyone else in his (because, let’s face it, it would always be a he in this scenario) life, who doesn’t sleep with or date any other people, who treats his free time as our shared time, who drops plans with friends or family the moment I need him, who convincingly promises to never leave me–if I had someone like that, and if I believed in that fantasy, then yes, I’d be fine working late every night and coming home at 9. I could see my friends on weekends sometimes, but I wouldn’t *need* to because I’d never be lonely or bored.
Because however you look at it, cultivating and maintaining a group of friends and a broader social circle or community takes more effort–especially more *intentional* effort–than cultivating just one person with whom you share your life. When we have to work unreasonable hours just to get by, guess which one’s more likely to fall by the wayside?
No wonder it feels like my like-minded friends and I are constantly wading through waist-deep snowdrifts. It’s not set up to work the way we want it to. Yes, life would be easier if I had someone who is always a few yards (or less) away from me when we’re not at work and who can provide romance, friendship, emotional support, entertainment, household help, financial assistance, AND hot sex (and maybe eventually co-parenting) without me ever needing to seek out other people or even leave the house. But that’s…horrifying.
public_zackcloudhall: This record came out and I was driving escorts through LA. Arguably one of the most dangerous jobs I have ever had. I heard Sins in the radio and was irritated by how much one of my girls liked it. But little did I know that it would soon change my life for the better. 12 years later and the only thing I can think about when I see this picture is how funny it was that Jon couldn’t stop sweating during this shoot. The rest of them were just sitting on this horribly gross bed in downtown LA trying not to catch crabs from this room we had rented (by the hour) and he was pouring sweat. Anyway happy birthday #afycso
wanna hear something wild i just remembered abt my childhood
once when i was seven i faked having an asthma attack to get out of doing a math assignment and it fooled everyone, including the school nurse who called my mom to come pick me up so she took me to the doctors and they told me i have asthma but in hindsight i can’t remember if they actually took any tests bc i think they just asked some questions like “did you feel your throat closing up? did you feel [whatever]?” and i just nodded along bc i didn’t want to be caught in a lie and. they. diagnosed me with asthma. like it’s on my medical records and i have an inhaler and i took meds for it for years. i list it for whenever people ask if i have any medical conditions i say yeah allergies and asthma.
and i literally just now remembered i don’t actually have asthma it was all a lie to get out of second-grade level math
This really sweet lucky person won a meet and greet in Australia. Here’s her story:
“I remember you” those were the first words Brendon said to me when he
walked into the room. I was at work when I found out I had won meet and
greet with my favourite band in the entire world. A band I have been
supporting for 12 years of my life and when he walked into the room I
have never felt more happiness. I spent almost 20 minutes with him,
showing him the 2 Panic! tattoos I have, talking about the album, the
tour, his dogs, my dogs, the drunk history of fall out boy, the
musical, literally everything. He was so kind and so grateful and I’ve
never felt more honoured to support a musician that cares so much about
his fans, I will never be able to thank him enough.
8 weeks of studying Medea finally comes to an end!! (Until end of year exams…) That was killer and I’m not the happiest with how I went on the SAC, but I did my best and what more can I ask of myself? X
