Rick and Morty T-shirt Design 4

And after many long hours at my comp, I’ve finished design 4! :D Back in high school I used to do a lot of silhouette drawings. I’ve always taken a liking to them. I think I’ve seen a good amount of silhouettes on shirts, they’re so pretty! 0v0

Feel free to vote for this design in RnM’s T-shirt Contest! ^^ I appreciate the support!

Top 10 favourite Alice In Chains songs?

Oh my god, I don’t know if I can do this! I’ll just list some important ones for me in no particular order:

  1. Don’t Follow. I told someone the other day that this is one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard, and I’m not exaggerating. Time stopped for me the first time I heard this song. I still get goosebumps from it and it will 100% make me cry every time. Drat you, Cantrell.
  2. Sea of Sorrow. This was my “karaoke” song that I used to belt out in my bedroom. I had a huge poster of Layne on my wall and tried to channel him when I sang. I still can’t sing like that.
  3. Angry Chair. I love, LOVE the atmospherics in this song and how dark/abysmal the lyrics are without sounding cheesy or trite. Also, the bridge of the song has that almost-happy sound to it, which is deceiving because you just get pummeled again. Layne was a great songwriter, probably better than he thought he was.
  4. Brother. Another fucking beautiful song with painful/sad lyrics that really sock you in the heart. I remember being at some music industry folks’ house in ATL at like 2 AM after a Mastodon show and the AIC Unplugged special was on in the background, and I’m eating Chinese takeout and crying like a fat slob to this tune.
  5. I Stay Away. I used to belt this one out as far back as middle school. I have a weird memory of being at a car wash with my mom when I was twelve and this was on the car radio while they were cleaning it outside, and I thought about how much I wanted to sing like that.
  6. Heaven Beside You. Okay, let me tell you about how much I love this song. I first heart it when I was about eleven years old and the chorus blew me away. I didn’t really understand the lyrics at the time, but I knew the tune reminded me of old madrigal/church music with a twang in it. Now that I’m older I get the lyrics completely, not to mention the after-chorus is the most INTJ thing I’ve ever heard: “So there’s problems in your life/that’s fucked up, but I’m not blind/I’m just see-through faded/super jaded/out of my mind”…once again, drat you, Cantrell.
  7. Them Bones. I mainly just love the parallel fifth harmonies going on in this one and how jarring it is to listen to, not to mention the odd time signature (4/8). It’s short, sweet, and to the point, plus the way morbid lyrics were always appealing to me, too.
  8. No Excuses. This song is like good harmonizing 101, the ground zero of songs for learning how to harmonize with another person. Not only that, but the fact that this song is from one man to another man concerning love and loyalty in their friendship is SUCH A RARITY in this super macho rock n roll world we’re stuck in. What other song does a man say to another man “You my friend/I will defend/And if we change/Well I’ll love you anyway”? Not many.
  9. Love Hate Love. A couple of years ago I was with Jared and we were on a little boozy YouTube binge and started watching AIC videos. Somehow I had never heard the live version of this song before so we watched the video of the performance…and I had my hand cupped over my mouth, overwhelmed that somebody could sing that perfectly live. It is still the most moving live performance I’ve seen footage of. What a painful, sad song, especially considering both Layne and the girl he wrote the song for died tragically.
  10. Down in a Hole. This was the first AIC song I ever heard, age ten, watching MTV with my mom. I remember telling her how “sad” the song sounded, but I liked it. Now at age 28, I know exactly what that song means because I’ve lived it, and it fucking socks me in the heart. Burying your emotions, being afraid of closeness to others…yeah. Another thing that makes this song stand out to me alone the lines of #8 up there is that there’s a vulnerability in the lyrics that male songwriters don’t normally delve into, in this case a sexual vulnerability. “Oh I want to be inside of you”, in one line, is a guy longing for intimate closeness with a woman he loves while shutting himself down emotionally. It’s the sort of thing you’d expect a woman to write, but not a man. For the last time, DRAT YOU CANTRELL.

Sorry this is so long, I just love talking about AIC these days.
