all the music show specials * *

What inspired your eruri actor au? I've always wanted to know😊

…so I just wrote this whole thing and bloody deleted it ¬_¬ right!

so it all began from this: 

I had seen some instagram fanart on my dashboard previously and I just adored the idea I believe it was @bluecrownedbird work . I wanted to do my own interpiration of the topic. My favaourite photos are those that are taken behind the scenes or backstage,  it brings the surreal reality that can be film, fashion shows, music back to what it is. People.

I loved the idea of bring SNK to this reality where it is a show, a much loved british show where the special affects are a bit shit sometimes and sometimes a bit clunky. I took inspiration from BBC Sherlock. I have been obsessed with the show sine it first came out and I loved the literal over night success and international following that it gained, throwing the actors into the big acting world. Both Cumberbatch and freeman were known but I not think anyone ever expected the show to be the success it is. I wanted to take that concept and apply it to SNK. Where the producers and writers had their eyes set on Levi from the moment snk was just talk. I wanted Erwin to be a character that was not meant to be in the forefront, only meant to have a few lines and disappear back into the background. But the producers loved Erwin so much they rewrote his character to suit him.


So all that was going through my head as I drew the above image. It was only meant to be one or two drawings, so I dialed up the flirting and the banter.

then I believe @zedsdead1001 (whom I was in awe of their talent, still am) and/or @alwaysbesassy  asked what happened next, so I told them.


but it wasn’t until I began talking to @erwinsalive did the concept and the story really unfold. their questions allowed the world to open up and it gave me an opportunity to share the thoughts in my head. something I never planned on doing. I vowed I was never going to write again. but talking to them…typing the words felt so natural  and the story just flowed. So I wanted to draw more and more, scenes which stuck in my head more than others. Which is why the images are all so disjointed. But I draw what comes to my mind. 

I love hearing other people’s take on it, to know that my work has inspired others is just such an hounour and has bought me the friends I have made here. Hearing other people’s take on the actors lives and the events that occur within it has helped me develop my own characters. so like you kitty, and @winglysimmer and @shortpieceofshit @herbivorousviolin @sibahahahahawhoops @lostcauses-noregrets @minxiebutt @snowtoes @sugardaddyerwinsmith without everyone listening to my constant rambling and offering up their thoughts and ideas, this au would not have happened. I only planned on doing two instagram drawings 

but my style has rapidly changed, now that I look back at that first image of actor erwin and compare it to my latest. 


its a bit change :)

nounissdoritos  asked:

Where does your inspiration come from? (ps- We love u so much >.<)

From the dark cockles of my tortured soul From a variety of things!

Undertale first and foremost. Obviously all the credit goes to Toby Fox in that regard. I love every moment of Undertale, from it’s flaws to it’s perfections. It’s so lovely and I don’t have enough of or any of the right words to really explain it but it’s so beautifully written and everything has a special charm and just AHH, love it!

Artistically, that’s difficult. I like to explore different genres of books, shows, and music to get a feel for my art. I have no set style but I like the flexibility. The way I draw things animesque is very different from how I draw things realistically. If you want a list of all the things I’m currently interested in, here’s a page I made on my main blog (beware of sh*tposting). That best explains where I get my media hype.

And then, culture? I’m a POC so I really want the variety in personality of the characters to be represented in the way that I draw them. Everyone is so interesting and unique I just want to do them right! I’m still very uncertain and I don’t know everything so I have to do a lot of research on other cultures, societies, and lifestyles. Research is very, very important!

And then tumblr has completely warped my sense of humor into something odd and uncontrollable and dank. But it’s a strangely significant part of my life.

Thank you hun! <3 <3

Into The Unknown - Over the Garden Wall

It’s been a while but here’s a piano piece from yours truly, your cool cat Josh~ Last night after a grueling night at work, I took the band and my coworkers to a trip… Into The Unknown~

Ooh boy, was I overdue for an OTGW piece but here. I played it out of being so tired and wanting something sweet but somber to finish the night off, and why not play them a song that reminds me of a special friend who helps me get through nights like this sometimes, heh. You know who you are, but this ones out to you, thanks for loving this show and I hope to spread it more myself!

That’s all I really gotta say, its fun playing music from this show and I plan to learn more when I have time. The band said it was a cute song and my coworkers are always happy to see me show off, I guess!~ Can’t lose my edge with the piano after all, but I haven’t given up. I played one or two more songs after this but they weren’t significant enough to record lol. For now, let’s enjoy this time in the Unknown, my cool cats. Thanks for listening, I love you all~

Carrie Fisher hosted SNL in the show’s 4th season, so it was right after the first Star Wars movie, about a year after it came out.  This episode was great because the musical guest were the Blues Brothers (Carrie would be in their movie too) and Carrie did the monologue and a sketch while dressed up as Princess Leia trying to tell a Star Wars joke.  The Loud Family sketch comes from this episode.  In the current SNL Thanksgiving special, that sketch is in the show.  I can’t believe she’s actually gone, but I hope that “she knows” that we all loved her.

For The First Time Ever, Saturday Night Live Will Actually Be Live Across The Entire US
Oh, and Melissa McCarthy is going to host!
By Tamerra Griffin

For the first time in the show’s history, four consecutive episodes Saturday Night Live are going to air live in all four US time zones, the chairman of NBC Entertainment announced Thursday.

It gets better: the guest hosts of the next four episodes will be: Jimmy Fallon, Chris Pine, Melissa McCarthy, and Dwayne Johnson. (Musical guests are yet to be announced).

The first show of the special finale series will begin on April 15.

In an emailed statement to BuzzFeed News, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt wrote, “SNL — enjoying its most popular season in two decades — is part of the national conversation, and we thought it would be a great idea to broadcast to the west and mountain time zones live at the same time it’s being seen in the east and central time zones.”

“That way, everyone is in on the joke at the same time,” he said.

SNL usually tapes live in its New York City studio on the East coast, and replays of the broadcast then air in later time zones.

Under this new arrangement, the show will air live at 11:30 p.m. ET, 10:30 p.m. CT, 9:30 p.m. MT, and 8:30 p.m. PT. The episodes will also be repeated at 11:30 p.m. for those in the Mountain and Pacific time zones.

There was no word from NBC whether the cross-country live broadcast will continue next season if it proves successful.

People were stoked to hear the news, especially given the stellar lineup of guest hosts.

Always love and respect KNJ

Okay I know I’m late but I have to talk about this. Namjoon is so strong for sharing his feelings with Always just as much as he did with Reflection, saying how he wished he was dead and life is a coffee he never ordered. I never thought this genre of music would drag me in so deep yet his lyrics are so meaningful and makes me love him even more. We can relate to him a lot more on a personal level with how he expresses his true feelings and that is very special.

Namjoon is very talented with pretty much anything, the way he contributed to the Wings album also, helping each member with their songs after knowing them and being able to tell their story after so many years. I respect him a lot. Doing all this on top of having the responsibility to lead BTS shows that he is a very hard working human being who deserves a lot of respect, love and appreciation. 

His ever growing love and support for his members, fans, friends and family.

He dreamt he went to an adult movie star award show with a friend but they were having a sort of Christmas special going on so there were all these av stars in Christmas outfits dancing around and singing on stage and suddenly Will Ferrell showed up and the cast of SNL and they announced ‘This is Saturday Night Live!’ and everything and continued with this Christmas Porn Star Musical and then he woke up like “What the fuck?”

why you need to watch next to normal

next to normal is a rock musical about a woman with bipolar disorder and how it and her attempts to heal affect her and her family. other themes in this musical include: learning how to grieve and cope with a loss, suicide, drug abuse, undiagnosed mental illness, doubting reality, and the ethics in modern psychiatry

and here’s why next to normal is so special, without giving away any spoilers:

  • it treats mental illnesses with respect and it doesn’t dance around anything. she is bipolar and that’s what the show is about
  • her family members all also have their own issues and each of them learn how to start healing and ask for/accept help and not cut themselves off from each other and that admitting you have a mental illness is not by any means a sign of weakness
  • her psychiatrist is not a villain. he’s just a doctor trying his best to help her with the methods available. an actual quote the psychiatrist says about the main character’s bipolar disorder: “you have a chronic illness. like diabetes or hypertension, if you leave it untreated, it could be catastrophic.”
  • it won the pulitzer prize for drama and is only eighth musical to ever do so (winners average out to one musical per decade; the last winner was rent back in 1996. was next to normal the best musical of the 2000’s? who’s to say)
  • this show is brutal and intense and deals with a lot of dark stuff and if you can’t handle the themes mentioned up above please do not watch it (but it’s also very funny and just. real. if you have a mental illness or disorder there’ll be a lot of moments where you’re like “same”)

here’s where you can watch next to normal. prepare to be fucked up

Lucy and Sasha talk about the musical number:

Lucy : “Funny enough, neither of us are singing in it, I’m in the sequence, it’s not one of the singers – well, she is a singer… You’ll see, you’ll see. It’ll make sense when you see it, but it was very fun to shoot. It was shot like a music video, and yeah, something different.”

Sasha who isn’t in the scene said: , “We were all recording it on our phones. It was a really special day, took up the whole set.”

anonymous asked:

i didn't know kpop singers trained for years before their debut, but i mean all singers in general work really hard i don't see them as anything special either

Okay let me tell you this: when a boy/girl gets into an entertainment  company, they start their time as trainees, which means they have to train each day for ten hours (or around that time, each company has its rules) on dancing, singing, music theory, korean, and sometimes other languages too such as chinese/japanese/english. Some companies have also this cruel method which sees all the trainees put together once a month, so that each one of them can show the rest how they’ve improved and sometimes even how much weight they’ve lost. When the company deems them ready, they can finally debut in a group, which was previously formed; they release their first single and start promoting it about every day in different locations; that means, they perform live, meet the fans and attend the interviews. After one month (or even more) of promoting, they get away from the spotlight and start preparing their new album, and then the cycle restarts. Adding to that, it’s important to keep in mind they are under constant pressure to win awards, and keep their fanbase happy; their appearance is always under scrutiny and most times the companies have them to lose weight till they reach the “ideal” weight (that is, around 45 kg I think?). Now, I’m not saying you should like kpop because kpop idols do all the things stated above, but I do feel like claiming we need to  acknowledge they work really hard and are not just there for their looks.

Check it out party people, I’ve got a new icon! heal-the-beat is back with something special just as promised! 

I commissioned an icon from @jo3mm and it came out awesome! He’s a fantastic artist that always delivers and I highly encourage all of you to check him out!

heal-the-beat serves as a place of retreat for good people, good music, and good times! The show’s starting and tickets are still going fast! Come and get in on the action!

I’m With You! 

guys seriously how does bts do it. they’ve been filming for variety shows. they’ve been preparing for their concerts. they’ve been preparing special stages for the gayo daejun’s. NOW THEY’VE BEEN RECORDING SONGS FOR THEIR ALBUM? THEY’VE BEEN PRACTICING ALL THE TIME FOR THEIR COMEBACK? THEY’VE BEEN FILMING MUSIC VIDEOS SECRETLY? this all takes SO MUCH TIME. honestly, i’m so amazed. they’re so inspirational and hardworking, it makes me want to work even harder.

I fucking love Leah from July Talk. Don’t get me wrong, I love all of them. But Leah has a special place in my heart.

I like them for the music they make. I love them, especially Leah, for the values they promote. July Talk is so honestly feminist that it fucks me up. Last night someone yelled at Leah to show her tits at a show, and they kicked him out. That is taking action and letting people know that sexism and objectification of women won’t be tolerated. It’s also something that is commonly ignored at concerts. Yelling disgusting things like that not only hurts Leah, who it’s directed at, but it also hurts every other woman in the venue. That kind of comment, even when not directed at you, makes a place feel so unsafe. But July talk kicked them the fuck out.

Also, her tweet following the show was vulnerable, strong and comprehensive all rolled into one and I love her all the more for it.

The entire band is standing behind these values when they’re put out there like that, so I love them for it.

Leah gets the honourable mention for putting up with the brunt of it and being the fronting face of it all via her Twitter & Instagram.

Also, don’t get me started on July Talk fucking w gender roles in performance art. I could write a 3000 word academic essay on how July Talk is a feminist band. Fuck me up I love July Talk.

tomeandflickcorner  asked:

Some people are upset the CS wedding is happening during the musical episode. That may be what the anon is referring to.

Yes, some kind people explained it to me.

Well, while I can get the fact that someone would be upset about things not going as he imagined in his head (believe me I get that a lot with this show), I am bothered by two facts:

1) CS is getting married!!! This is something all of us should be happy and grateful for, and to bitter about the little details of the how and when, feels a bit greedy for me. I mean we are after all the luckiest ship on this show who got a perfect true love story from beginning to hopefully very far down the road end.

2) No one has any idea how the musical episode is gonna look like. Personally, I don’t think it will ruin the wedding, if anything, it will make it unique because this special is something that they wanted to do for a long time, and the fact that they are choosing the CS wedding to be on that episode is an honor. It means they held CS as the leading most significant couple on the show. So I guess what I’m trying to say is don’t judge until you see it. 

I could understand the all frustration evolving episode 6x10 and old!Hook. I get it, I was part of it. We wanted Hook to be a more integral part of the wish world. But here the episode is obviously gonna focus and surround them. I feel like we should be grateful and give them the benefit of the doubt and not judge until we see it.

  I also want to add two things. I don’t think that the wedding will be a too corny one just because it’s on the musical episode. We will probably get a CS duet, which I at least am thrilled and looking forward to. But I don’t think it’s gonna be them singing their vows or something. Maybe it will be after the ceremony. 

Another thing, I’m glad that it’s not on the season finale, because one thing I really love is seeing a couple after they get married. I want to see them on their honey moon, or having him get her inside their house on his arms. If the season ends with the wedding we might not get that, especially if we might not have a season 7 at all. So I would like to see them together already married. Mr and Misses Jones together.

I also thing that the new characters are gonna blend in at the end of the episodes, or appearing during the episode without us knowing who they are. So I think it’s not gonna be a season finale that we won’t see or hear our beloved characters.

So, I actually think it’s gonna be great to have the wedding on 6x20, and I think it will be magical to have it on the musical episode.

But as I was saying, I respect those who don’t share my view, and don’t agree with me. Just please, try to remember that the main thing is that EMMA AND HOOK ARE GETTING MARRIED!!! 

When Josh and I talked about our dreams of playing music in front of people and seeing who all we could get to be a part of this and creating something special, something that everyone could be a part of, one of the things I never anticipated was needing to speak about things that are tough to speak about, like tragedies. Last night, I barely slept, I didn’t know what I was going to say but I knew something needed to be said. Do I say something in the beginning of the show? Do I say something before this song, after this song…I didn’t know. So I wrote a few things down, and then I threw those things away, I’m just going to speak from the heart. I want you to know something. When we decided we wanted to be musicians, we wanted to play shows, we knew that our concerts, the places that people could come, we wanted them to be a safe place. So, we want this area to be a safe place, and that was what we intended from the beginning. But heres the truth, this is going to be a safe place in here, we’re celebrating the fact that we’re alive, that we made it. I want you to know that music can help you get from one place to next. When you’re listening to music by yourself, you’re trying to survive, at least that’s what Josh and I use it for, but when you come to a show, you’re celebrating. You’re celebrating with thousands of people around you that you’ve made it. You made it for that day, you made it for that show, and you’re still kicking, you’re still here. This is a safe place. What I can’t deny, what I cannot pretend doesn’t exist, is what’s outside of this room right now, which is the rest of the world. And when I heard what had happened last night in Dallas with the five policemen who got killed and also when I heard about the two african american men who were treated unjustly and were killed, honestly I said to myself, ‘what is going on? why does this keep happening? This is wrong. Something’s broken and I don’t know how to fix it. I just write songs’ and I don’t know how to fix it, guys, I really don’t. And I wish I had the words to fix it…but I don’t. All I can say is that this city, I was in this city last night when everything was going down and even though it felt dark. It felt like there was fear, I felt a strength, and if there’s anywhere in the world that everyone can look at, and learn from, it’s from this city in Dallas, Texas. I know that they can learn from this place right here. We have to stick together, guys. We gotta figure this out, we have to stick together, and we have to love each other. I want you to know that all I know is how to play shows and how to write music, and I don’t know what kind of power that brings, what kind of change that brings, but I promise you that we’re doing everything we can, to try and bring that power and that change to this community, and to this world. And I want you guys, when you leave this room, to know that we’re asking you to work your hardest to make that change as well, Okay?.
