and doing great

I just checked the other responses to that 'best 1D music video' post because I was ready to be all smug about a unanimous consensus on Kiss You, and, I mean, obviously everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but can you believe how wrong everyone who chose anything other than Kiss You are?!?! I would die for Kiss You.

You are right, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I agree, Kiss You is the perfect One Direction video, and maybe the greatest music video of all time!!! I too, would die for Kiss You!!!!!  Thank you for giving me this opportunity to talk about it.

There is more than one reason I love it so much, but it really all comes down to this: the Kiss You music video lovingly sends up the idea of boybands and boyband music videos while truly celebrating them at the same time.  AND it does this in a way that effortlessly highlights what made One Direction so special in the first place – their genuinely charming personalities.  

Look at this shit, just from the first 30 or seconds of the video:

Right out of the gate, the mood and pace of the video match the mood and tempo of the song!! 

And everyone is a big, happy ham!!!  (Zayn has always been an underrated ham IMO)

Then, the camera pulls back and you see, OMG this is a video set!! it’s not real! This boyband of hams is making a music video, let’s see how they do it!! 

Back to Liam being cute in a sidecar!!!

And it only gets better from there:

A jailhouse rock homage.

Everyone’s Christmas card for the next 40 years.

Sailors

Louis looking handsome while fake surfing. 

Harry and his nips!!!

I mean, I just want to thank the director, Mr. Vaughan Arnell, from the bottom of my heart.  It’s a wonderful music video with a fully coherent concept.  

When it first came out, @100percentsassy, made the point that there should have been WAY more posts on pop culture websites about what a funny, charming masterpiece it is. She was totally right!!!!! What more could you want???

Two views of the same pies. Pumpkin and apple crumb. David’s cameras is better, but I like to colors in mine more. Featuring the Cracked Slate coffee mug @kyrieanne gave me.

Listen, Delta’s a sweetie and after a while, once she calms down about the broken jaw because Delta was not in control of himself) and Lamb’s lies, he becomes basically her son. She gets pretty protective of him. He’s a good dad to Eleanor and the girls, that’s what matters to Grace.

Also, like, Sinclair better watch out. You break his heart and you got both Eleanor and Grace to worry about. Then again, Grace has never liked Sinclair so she’s always breathing down his neck and they always bicker back and forth.

home.

happy late birthday to @vulpes–vulpes
