3rd is the best

Okay I’m about to spill some tea

SO “oh look, taylor swift is dragging up past drama to sell her new album, look at her playing the victim again, you’re still over”

is what all the haters happen to be screaming (among over ridiculous things) tonight, following the release of Look What You Made Me Do, the lead single to Swift’s 6th album: Reputation. But let’s take a little trip down memory lane to see if Taylor really is playing the victim. Hold on ladies, it’s gonna be a long one. 

2006-2008  

Taylor broke out in 2006, and when Love Story stormed the charts in late 2008 she became a global superstar and thus named “America’s Sweetheart” a bittersweet and dangerous title for any young female star, because it’s so easy to fall from the top. She was immediately held to an impossibly high standard of perfection, in every aspect of her life, and she handled this with grace.

The overwhelming positive feedback from the first post pushed me to do another “ghibliwatch” series! I am working on a mchanzo princess mononoke crossover for a potential 3rd installment. Quick question: what overwatch characters would fit best in a Castle in the Sky?

Comment, request, enjoy

The Signs as Symphonies

Aries: Shostakovich 5. (its first performance was the success that cemented Shosty’s career, with a half-hour standing ovation. he wrote it while angry at Stalin, of course.)

Taurus: Mahler 2. (the Resurrection Symphony. it’s got epic french horns and epic strings and epic voices and it’s all very epic.)

Gemini: Haydn 94. (the “Surprise Symphony”. my favorite of the theories is that it’s supposed to awaken those who fall asleep by that point in the music.)

Cancer: Beethoven 6. (the “Pastoral Symphony”. my favorite section is “merry gathering of country folk.”)

Leo: Mozart 39. (so many trumpets. the first word people think of is usually something along the lines of “majestic,” or “grand.”)

Virgo: Prokofiev 2. (each movement has a sort of nervousness to it, with anger fading in and out; my favorite part is the 3rd movement.)

Libra: Tchaikovsky 4. (”Fate.” composed for his patron/ pen pal/ best friend, Nadezhda von Meck.)

Scorpio: Liszt 109. (the Dante Symphony, detailing the levels of the Catholic Hell from the Inferno.)

Sagittarius: Haydn 45. (the “Farewell.” Symphony. it’s super happy and dance-y sounding and great for most situations involving food or pets.)

Capricorn: Sibelius 7. (literally the most depressing symphony of all time. only one movement. done that way one purpose, however; absolutely GENIUS.)

Aquarius: Dvorak 9. (”New World Symphony.” Neil Armstrong listened to this on his way to and from the moon.)

Pisces: Paganini “Sonata a violino principale” (not technically a symphony, but i like it a lot and it feels very Pisces-ish.)

now, go listen to whichever one is your sun sign. (note: symphonies are written in sonata form. most of these are in three or four parts.)
