Kurotsukki Song Rec #3

How could I love you less now that I know you more?

Two way song hands down. We all know that Kei has his moments of doubt, and Tetsu is there to help him through it. He will be the first to tell Kei what an incredible person he is and how much he loves him, so the line “How could I love you less now that I know you more?” really resonates for this couple for me. And not just for Tsukishima. I also think that Kuroo has his moments. The moments where he doesn’t know how or why Kei would be with him. He questions whether he’s worth it. And Kei would say the same thing to Kuroo. The line really captures a key component to their relationship, that they keep falling deeper the more they get to know each other. It’s one of the things I love about this ship.

anonymous asked:

You play the viola, too? Traitor. (Kidding. I'm actually considering learning the viola, it sounds mesmerizing.) It's lovely that your musical talent branches out to other instruments.

Yes.  It’s not uncommon for violinists to double on viola.  The skills are extremely transferrable.

River Waterfall Over Boulders By Riverbank With Waterfall Quotes & In Spiritus Relaxing Music By IRV

River Waterfall Over Boulders By Riverbank With Waterfall Quotes & In Spiritus Relaxing Music

Listen to, watch and relax to this Waterfall Quotes and In Spiritus Relaxing Music Ambient Background Video with 5 minutes of a “Gentle Flow Single Drop River Waterfall Over Boulders By Riverbank.”


This is an ambient background video that uses a 5 minute nature video clip of “Gentle Flow Single Drop River Waterfall Over Boulders By Riverbank” with waterfall quotations in a calm male voice and relaxing music played over nature sounds.

Video Components


The theme of the video is well focused on waterfalls and is good for playing in the background to provide a calming atmosphere whilst undertaking other tasks.

The theme of this ambient background video is well focused on quotations related to waterfalls. These quotes are supported by a visual secondary theme of an waterfall nature scene and also waterfall nature sounds. These factors are good for playing in the background to provide a calming atmosphere whilst undertaking other tasks.


This ambient background video uses just one 5 minute scene of “Gentle Flow Single Drop River Waterfall Over Boulders By Riverbank”.


The audio used in this ambient background video contains waterfall quotations combined with relaxing music which has a slow tempo which I feel has a calming effect on the listener, and which played over waterfall nature sounds. The music track is called “In Spiritus” and is under license from

There are 12 quotations with each being spoken within consecutive 25 second intervals. They are spoken using a calm male instructor voice at a volume that is louder than the background music so that they are heard. There is also a good time gap between each spoken quotation to allow time for thought. Note that longer quotations have less of a time gap before the next quotation. The overall effect is quite relaxing.

The waterfall quotations used are:

1. You cannot hear the waterfall if you stand next to it. I paint my jungles in the desert. By Macedonlo de la Torre

2. Miss Farrell has a voice like some unparalleled phenomenon of nature. She is to singers what Niagara is to waterfalls. By Alfred Frankenstein

3. By the time we arrived, as evening was approaching, I felt as sore as a rock must feel when the waterfall has pounded on it all day long. By Arthur Golden

4. I shift, an infinitesimal movement, towards him. It is like the leap from a waterfall. I do not know, until then, what I am going to do. By Madeline Miller

5. Today the vacuum [of space] is not regarded as empty. It is a sea of dynamic energy, like the spray of foam near a turbulent waterfall. By Harold E. Puthoff

6. Studios might support people trying to do something a little bit different and they’d be more open to the fact that there’s more than one path to the waterfall. By Vince Vaughn

7. My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives. By Blazing Saddles

8. While people are struggling unhappily in the cities against the cruel authorities, a waterfall happily and cheerfully flows in the nature; there is happiness only if there is freedom! By Mehmet Murat Ildan

9. A cheery relaxation is man’s natural state, just as nature itself is relaxed. A waterfall is concerned only with being itself, not with doing something it considers waterfall-like. By Vernon Howard

10. When you’re young, there’s so much that you can’t take in. It’s pouring over you like a waterfall. When you’re older, it’s less intense, but you’re able to reach out and drink it. I love being older. By Sigourney Weaver

11. Think of your life as a waterfall; it may come crashing down at some point, it may have its ups and downs, but in the end, it will continue to flow. By Unknown

12. Our instinct as parents is to order our kids around – it’s easier, and frankly, we’re usually right. [But] reverse the waterfall as much as possible. Enlist the children in their own upbringing. By Bruce Feiler


This ambient background video uses one 5 minute still video clip of one natural scene that includes a waterfall. The image size used for this video fills the screen completely. Images within the scene include: a single drop river waterfall in a valley with boulders, branches and grass on the riverbank. I particularly like the way the water flows over and around the boulders.

There is also a narrow band on the bottom of the video for the company name and copyright notice. This has been designed to have a low visual impact so that there is very little distraction to the viewer.


As there is only one still video clip used in this ambient background video there are no transitions used. However, at the start of the video there is a slow fade-in from black transition and at the end of the video there is a slow fade-out to black transition.

Special Techniques

This ambient background video is well focused with quotations related to waterfalls and just one video clip of Gentle Flow Single Drop River Waterfall Over Boulders By Riverbank used which fills the screen completely. The motion of the waterfall within the video clip provide interest to the viewer. The audio is a combination of thought provoking waterfall quotes and nice relaxing music played over waterfall nature sounds.

I think this is a very good video for use as an ambient background video. It can be used in sequence with other videos or placed on repeat play. There are no interruptions at the beginning or at the end, just nature images and relaxing music.

What do you think about the video? Relaxing? Tell me in the comments!

anonymous asked:

I hope I'm not bothering you 😁 but you like the front bottoms right? I like them, but I'm looking for more music to branch out into (similar and otherwise). Do you have any recommendations? You're like. p cool. hella lit. 10/10. what I'm trying to say is you seem like a cool person and like you would be pretty neato to hang out with? yeah.

i do really love the front bottoms ( I saw them in October!!) i would suggest modern baseball first, then maybe tigers jaw, neck deep, brand new, and Joyce manor. & thanks 😅 i’m a generally awkward person to hang out with tho. i’m bad with interactions with others.

anonymous asked:

I went through a phase where I would listen to nothing but Disturbed. I still love them, but I'm kinda glad my music taste has branched out. I love BMTH, even their new album. I think it is great. Gotta love some R&B, like Boys2Men xD How you so cool? Teach me to be cool :o Also sorry I ran out of asks xD

I’m far from cool haha, am I following you? What’s your tumblr?

Annual SUPERLATE AOTY List, 2015 cont’d

3. 2814 - 新しい日の誕生

Obligatory brief-ish thoughts on the Internet-native genre that this album belongs to: Vaporwave.

To start with, I want to correct the Internet’s use of the word “genre”. Don’t get me wrong, /mu, vaoprwave is totally a thing, but it isn’t a genre: It’s an art movement, a scene, a culture. Doesn’t that sound more impressive and worthy of respect? Vaporwave is as much about its art, concept, and presentation as its music; genre implies it’s just one thing, and it is clearly more than that. Musically speaking, it’s too varied, and all those variations have been done before vaporwave emerged as an idea. What unites vaporwave as an aesthetic style are its sources of inspiration, but musically (so far as I can tell from my non-expert exposure) there are 4 musical branches (or subgenres, if you like) of this scene.

First you have your 70s-80s smooth jazz remixes; that’s your Macintosh Plus. Then there’s your late-80s/early 90s muzak; your Saint Pepsi. There’s also your Windows-98 inspired trip hop; that’d be your Blank Banshee. And finally there’s the Vangelis and Blade Runner psychedelic ambient stuff; and that’d be the Hong Kong Express and t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者 (hereafter called simply Telepath) collaboration 2814.

Vaporwave is a style made for the Internet era: tracks are thrown up on SoundCloud or Bandcamp without warning or context. It isn’t generally music to sit back and appreciate, it’s ephemeral and disposable. HKE and Telepath seemingly work quickly and haphazardly with their solo efforts. Their tracks have little structure or form; their grooves and soundscapes feel very stream-of-consciousness and unedited. There’s little sense of an iterative process or artistic finality.

But with 2814 and their 2nd LP there is a sense that the material has received a certain level of deliberate craftsmanship and is a considered artistic statement. The album (I’m leaving the title and tracklist untranslated, looking at the kanji first and discovering the meaning later added to the experience for me) doesn’t feel like a slapped-together nostalgia trip made by a channer who just discovered that Audacity is like totally free you guys. That is to say, 2814 are talented people who have put the time and effort into making actual shup-up-and-just-listen *music*.

Hell, more work seems to have been done by these two anonymous laptop-cradlers than my two favourite “successful” and “legitimate” ambient soundsmiths did. Alessandro Cortini and Sunn O))) both had some disappointing releases this year.

Anyways, time to actually describe 新しい日の誕生‘s music. The album roughly alternates between groove-oriented and and calm drone tracks. As with 2814′s self-titled debut, the Vangelis influence is always present, but unlike that album, the synth patches don’t feel lifted wholesale. Another contrast is every track seems put together with more discipline; that is to say most of the tracks range from 6-9 minutes and have more ideas packed together than most of HKE and Telepath’s 20+ minute solo work. The last two tracks are stretched over 10 minutes each, which feels overlong, but are still more interesting than the 15+ minute “let’s leave the beat looping forever and add/edit other layers on the fly” tracks that dragged down the debut.

Other than the last two tracks, the sub-bass-heavy grooves and carefully orchestrated drones, along with the ever present echo/phaser effects give this album a sense of momentum vital for any ambient work. It can sit and hang in the background if you like, but it’s also rewarding to focus and dive into its rainy, colourful, and dreamy world.


Best: Tracks 6, 1, 3, and 5

Worst: Track 7

Alternative Musical Theatre: When Artists Branch Out

Logo by Joe Sarrington David Byrne, ex-frontman of Talking Heads, is writing a musical based on the life of Joan of Arc. Saint Joan will premiere in New York next year on Valentine’s Day (perhaps suggesting that Byrne might be exploring Joanie’s love life?) Byrne himself has said it will be ‘anthemic and spiritual’. I guess all bets on ‘Burn Baby Burn’ being used in the final scene are off then.…
