90's-R&B

anonymous asked:

Just curious, why do you hate the comics? And do you just hate the new team up series? Or all comics with them together or individually?

Oh! I loved their past team ups. Well, some of them. Why else would I be here? My all-time favourite spideypool team-up from canon is Avenging Spider-man #12-#13, which probably won’t come as a surprise to most. 

Identity Wars is one frequently forgotten, but is also a nice read. They hug. 

Sure, I’m not very thrilled with the current Spider-man/Deadpool series, or, honestly, Spider-man and Deadpool at all in their current roles in All New, All Different Marvel. I’ve kind of accepted it–– my enjoyment of 616 Spider-man and Deadpool is just stuck somewhere in the past.

On this day in music history: September 24, 1982 - “1999” by Prince is released. Written and produced by Prince, it is the eleventh single release for the singer, songwriter, musician and producer from Minneapolis, MN. Written about “a party at the end of world”, the lyrics touch on widespread fears of the escalation of “The Cold War”, and the impending threat of global thermal nuclear war between the United States and the then Soviet Union (Russia). The song’s message encourages listeners to enjoy the time we do have, best expressed in the lyric “life is just a party, and parties weren’t meant to last”. The somewhat dark undercurrent present in the lyrics are masked by the exuberant, funky track, with its point being missed by many who only viewed it as a party song. One of the last songs recorded for the album, the basic tracks are recorded at Prince’s home studio on Kiowa Trail (“The Purple House”) in Chanhassen, MN in late July/early August of 1982.  The song features Prince sharing lead vocals with band members Lisa Coleman, Jill Jones, and Dez Dickerson. Initially, he had planned for everyone to sing the entire song in unison, but during mixing of the single he hits upon the idea of having them sing lines on their own then all together on the chorus.  The songs music video is directed by Bruce Gowers (Queen, Michael Jackson), and is shot at the Minneapolis Armory (with the full stage set up) during rehearsals for the “Triple Threat Tour”. It is one of three promotional clips filmed that week along with “Automatic” and “Let’s Pretend We’re Married”. The single is backed with the non album B-side “How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore”. Featuring Prince singing lead and background vocals to his own piano accompaniment, it is recorded at Sunset Sound Recorders in Hollywood, CA on April 26, 1982. “How Come” is included on the compilation “The Hits/B-sides” in 1993, and on the soundtrack to Spike Lee’s film “Girl 6” in 1996. “1999” peaks at #4 on the Billboard R&B singles chart in December of 1982 also topping the Club Play chart for 2 weeks on December 4, 1982, and initially peaking at number #44 on the Hot 100. After the top ten chart success of “Little Red Corvette”, Warner Bros re-promotes “1999” at US top 40 pop radio in the late Spring of 1983. It re-enters the Hot 100, and peak at #12 on July 23, 1983. Prince re-records “1999” in late 1998, releasing it on his NPG Records imprint (as a seven track EP) after Warner Bros reissues the original version. The original re-charts again, peaking at #40 on the Hot 100 on January 16, 1999, with the remake peaking at #58 on the R&B album chart, and #150 on the Top 200 on February 20, 1999.

‘hi, honey’ is going to be the fall semester bookend nbd nbd

haha i love grasping for straws

the wonderful world of yoonmin

Yoonmin + Disneyland for Honeymoon anon

imagine a pocket-sized you on a trip to disneyland with bangtan. first stop: hat shop, which is why you are currently hanging onto a large black mouse ear and smiling down at jimin through the mirror. he chose the groom hat, saying it didn’t matter that he wasn’t a groom—the fancy tuxedo style suited his face the best. from your seat on top of the top hat fixed between the mouse ears, you can’t help but agree.

it’s then that you see taehyung sending you a pointed look, his eyes darting to a disinterested yoongi sitting off to the side and playing with his phone, then to jimin, and back to you. while jimin is preoccupied looking at hats with jungkook, you quickly reach out to grab The Hat, and taehyung snatches you away to set you on yoongi’s lap before darting away.

yoongi doesn’t even blink when you scale up his arm to set The Hat on top of his head. you sit happily on his shoulder and send a thumbs up to taehyung. it’s only when jimin squeaks that yoongi looks up, his eyes settling on jimin’s steadily reddening cheeks. taehyung grins happily as yoongi slowly reaches up to touch the mouse ears on his head, and with a mumbled, “what the..??” yoongi gets up and makes his way to a mirror.

at first, he simply meets your eye through the glass, blinking sleepily at your guilty smile. but then his eyes finally drop to The Hat, widening as they take in the white lace, silver crown, and long white veil attached to the white hat you picked out for him. he bites his lip, now understanding the flush on jimin’s face. you hesitantly ask if yoongi likes the bride hat, and jimin makes to stutter a flustered apology, but yoongi surprises everyone when he lifts a pale hand to the delicate veil, flipping it gracefully over his shoulder as he says, “I do.”

On this day in music history: September 24, 1983 - “In A Special Way”, the third album by DeBarge is released. Produced by El DeBarge, it is recorded at Kendun Recorders in Burbank, CA and Westlake Audio in West Hollywood, CA from Late 1982 - Mid 1983. Buoyed by the success of their sophomore release “All This Love”, the family vocal group from Grand Rapids, MI are granted more creative freedom in the studio. Only twenty one years old at start of recording, lead singer El DeBarge oversees the sessions as the sole producer and bandleader, with brothers James and Mark and sister Bunny all writing songs that are included on the completed album. Aided by a group of seasoned studio veterans including Greg Phillinganes (keyboards), Harvey Mason, Ricky Lawson, Leon “Ndugu” Chancler (drums) “Ready” Freddie Washington, James Jamerson, Jr., Nathan East (bass), Charles Fearing, Paul Jackson, Jr., Carlos Rios (guitars), and Paulinho DaCosta (percussion), the sessions are highly productive. Motown label mate Stevie Wonder (harmonica) also makes a guest appearance on the title track. The finished album is an artistic triumph and is widely regarded as the group’s best. It spins off two singles including “Time Will Reveal” (#1 R&B, #18 Pop)  and “Love Me In A Special Way” (#11 R&B, #45 Pop). The album receives further belated attention more than a decade after its release when the album tracks “Stay With Me” and “A Dream” are widely sampled and interpolated by numerous Hip Hop and R&B artists during the 90’s including The Notorious B.I.G., 2Pac, and Ashanti. Originally released on CD in the early 90’s, it is remastered and reissued as part of the compilation package “Time Will Reveal: The Complete Motown Albums” in 2011. “In A Special Way” peaks at number four on the Billboard R&B album chart, also peaking at number thirty six on the Top 200, and is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

On this day in music history: September 24, 1977 - “Keep It Comin’ Love” by KC & The Sunshine Band hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week, also peaking at #2 on the Hot 100 on October 1, 1977. Written by Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch, it is the fourth R&B chart topper for the R&B Disco/Funk band from Hialeah, FL. With the back to back chart topping singles “Get Down Tonight” and “That’s The Way (I Like It)” under their belts, KC & The Sunshine band continue their hit streak into 1976 when they release their fourth studio album titled “Part 3”. The lead single “(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty” released ahead of the album in May quickly become the bands third number one pop and R&B hit. Two more singles “I Like To Do It” (#4 R&B, #37 Pop) and their fourth chart topper “I’m Your Boogie Man” (#1 Pop & R&B) follow. Employing a similar writing technique used on “That’s The Way (I Like It)”, KC and bassist Richard Finch use the title “keep it comin’ love” along with the refrain “don’t stop it now, don’t stop it no, don’t stop it now, don’t stop”  as repetitive hooks to sear it in the listeners memory. The song is the final track on the album, directly segueing out of “I’m Your Boogie Man”. With many club DJ’s playing both cuts back to back, it is a natural for a future single release. After “Boogie Man” peaks,  KC & The Sunshine Band’s label TK Records issues “Keep It Comin’ Love” nine months after the initial release of “Part 3” in July of 1977. It quickly follows its predecessor up the charts, becoming the bands fourth million selling single, with the album also crossing the million mark in sales. It stops short of the top on the Hot 100, stalling at #2 for three weeks when it is unable to unseat either Meco’s “Star Wars/Cantina Band” and  Debby’s Boone’s “You Light Up My Life”.
