and may you release your album soon

Watch on

Dear Park Jimin,

If by chance, I ever had the opportunity to meet you, perhaps at the airport, possibly at a meet and great, hopefully at a concert one day, there is no doubt about what I will always want to say to you; you are not alone.

You are not alone. You are not alone when you spend those sleepless nights rehearsing to perfect a dance. You are not alone when you tire your voice trying to improve your vocals for us. You are not alone at the moments when you begin to feel inadequate, feeling like all hope is lost. But i want you to realise that you are not alone. You are never alone Jimin.

Seeing you like this hurts. It hurts us to see you like this. You may think that you need to keep pushing yourself harder in order to make us happy but that is completely the opposite of what we want of you. We want you to be happy. Of course we are forever thankful for all the hard work and effort you put into everything you do to make shows, interviews, bombs absolutely enjoyable for us but it’s at times like these where we want you to stop.

We truly only want what is best for you. We only want you all to be healthy physically and mentally. I may have this completely wrong but seeing this makes me feel like you’re crying out for help. I can see that you are tired and I can see that you’re unhappy. However I also know that this was a video recorded at April.

It’s smart that Bangtan have released this now; look at what you have achieved from a short space of 5 months. Your stage presence has improved tremendously and so has your dancing and singing. You have successfully created a new album that will be released very soon and has got all of ARMY anticipating. ‘Lie’ is arguably the most favoured video from the short films and many people love that track.

Jimin, I hope you look back at this video and understand that it’s ok to feel like that from time to time. It’s normal to feel like you’re giving your all but nothing good is coming from it. It’s normal to feel insignificant. But it’s not okay to ever think that you are alone in times like these.

We love you Park Jimin. Please believe in yourself and realise what you are truly capable of.

On The Midsummer Station, its critics, and how this affects the new Owl City album

To all the Hoot Owls, ex and current: I’m writing this because when I search for “Adam Young blog,” one of the first results on Google shouldn’t be “Why I’m No Longer a Fan of Adam Young.” I’m writing this because there is a line between constructive criticism and hate, and I see it crossed far too often. But most importantly, I’m writing this because the new album is dropping in less than six months, and this needs to be addressed before we have another The Midsummer Station.
