another one of my favorites from the album!

Sterek 73?

73. “I wrote you a song.”
Also on ao3

Stiles was tipsy, he hadn’t meant to get that way, but he was nervous. It was his big night, his first solo record release party, but he wasn’t in the partying mood. 

He knew that he should be mingling, chatting with some of the A List celebrities that Lydia have gotten to the party, but instead he was sitting at the back of the room with a bottle of Jack in one hand. He felt like he was still a new kid on the scene, standing at the back of the room to avoid talking to strangers. 

The thing was, he looked every bit the rockstar that he was suppose to be with his artfully mussed hair that made him look like he had spent the day having sex, his jeans that were sinfully tight, his black button down was unbuttoned to show his patch of chest hair, the sleeves rolled to his elbows. 

He looked the part and he was tipsy enough to try to play the part, but he knew if he tried to stand up from his spot on the floor he’d fall over and he’d probably say something stupid to the likes of Erica Reyes or Kira, no last name, the two ethereal pop goddesses that Lydia had managed to get in attendance.

“Hey,” A familiar voice said from above Stiles and he closed his eyes. There was no way Derek was here, they hadn’t spoken in months. Stiles didn’t look up, he was sure he was hallucinating. Maybe he had had more to drink than he thought  

“Stiles, can you at least look at me?”

is it bad i expected more from halsey? it's not bad but not as good as her older stuff. hopefully the best songs are yet to come out.

The thing you have to understand with Ashley is that her albums are complete experiences. Badlands was a concept album that went beyond the music. The Badlands were a place and characters that you followed through the songs existed within it. That’s why she said “listen to it in order”. That album isn’t supposed to be heard on shuffle. There’s a linear story. If you just take Ashley’s music at face value you lose a lot of the message. One individual song from Badlands was amazing but one song alone didn’t make Badlands genius, the sum of its parts did. You comprehend the complexity of everything that went into it once you hear Ashley talk about how there was literal science and math and physics behind the creation of the textures, depth, and effects in the songs. It’s the amount of thought that went into it that elevates it. I can’t find the full interview now, but I think this is one of my favorites of her talking about all the shit that went into making Badlands. The entire interview from 2015 is amazing, but if you want to hear her just talking about Badlands and the complex scientific approach to the album go to 8:50.

Now that we’re on the cusp of the release of hopeless fountain kingdom one has to understand the same basic things. The video released today educates the meaning of the song. The video is another layer to the song. The video is just one of many that will enhance the concept of the album. This song will fall somewhere in the linear story that once you listen to the entire thing will make even more sense. Ashley’s art is a complete experience that goes beyond the music and unless that is acknowledged then it will never be properly appreciated. 

I get that some people may want to experience music through a standalone song or not think about things much. I guess that’s fine. Mindless entertainment has it’s time and place. The beauty of Ashley as an artist is that if you just want to bop to it and never go beyond that you can. “Now Or Never” or “Ghost” or “Colors” could do that for you, but if you want more then there is also this entire alternative universe to explore. You can get the best of both worlds. Point is, it’s unwise to judge Ashley’s work based on one piece. She doesn’t make music to be dissected that way. 

Playlist: Left Eye

Left Eye died 15 years ago and I wanted to collect all of my favorite verses from her in one playlist.

I might be in the minority, but I’m a much bigger fan of Left Eye earlier in her career.  The longer she was in the game, the lower her voice got and the more philosophical her rhymes became to the point where, honestly, some of her most classic rhymes I still be like “…what?”  I don’t she was getting the respect she deserved as a lyricist because she was cute, in a group, and sounded like a little girl.  The other women in rap were a lot harder than she was and instead of staying true to what I thought made her unique, she changed her style to meet theirs and it wasn’t quite as successful, to me anyway.

I put these songs in chronological order, but I wanted to put this video for “Freedom” (1995) at the top because you can really see how unique she was alongside other Queens of Rap at the time.  "Freedom" was the theme from Panther and the original R&B version featured artists like Monica, Vanessa Williams, TLC, En Vogue, SWV, etc.  An alternative Rap Version was produced and shot as well featuring Queen Latifah, Yo-Yo, Patra, MC Lyte, Me'Shell Ndegeocello, Salt N Pepa and another artist I don’t recognize.  Unfortunately it’s not on Spotify so I can’t add it to my playlist, but you should find it and download it.  It’s one of my favorite moments in Left Eye’s discography.

underrated songs from bands that had “one hit song”

You know what I’m talking about. A song gets overplayed on the radio and everyone eventually starts to hate it. But what about their other songs? Maybe they have potential? The radio can ruin songs for us, that’s why I limit my radio listening. I’ve always wanted to write out a list of songs from artists that have that “one hit song” that everyone knows. I’m just writing each one as it comes to mind, so the list will probably be all over the place. enjoy.

One of my favorite artists covering another one of my favorite artists. Doesn’t get much better than that. “All My Loving” is a song from the Beatles’ 1963 album ‘With the Beatles’. It was written by Paul McCartney but credited to Lennon-McCartney. Amy performed this acoustic cover at the Glastonbury Festival in 2004.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOU REED 🎂
Today, Lou would have had 75 candles on his birthday cake.
Lewis Allan “Lou” Reed was born March 2, 1942, in Brooklyn, New York. We lost Lou on October 27, 2013.
A stellar songwriter, guitarist, vocalist and humanitarian, “Lou” Reed, formed the band “Velvet Underground” back in 1964. He went on to have a successful career with his albums and concert tours, along with collaborations with other musicians such as David Bowie, etc. And is a well respected musician and humanitarian.
His unique poetic lyrical style, alto voice, and “coolness” we fans know and love as “Lou”, helped pave the way for many future artist in the “glam/punk/alternative rock era.
One of my favorite Lou Reed albums is 1974’s “Rock and Roll Animal”, which featured 4 songs from his days with the Velvet Underground. As well as his “Transformer” album, another great one in my opinion and should be part of any slbum collection.
His songs such as “Walk On The Wild Side”, “Sweet Jane”, “Rock and Roll”, “Vicious”, Perfect Day and others, crossed over into mainstream music charts branching his music out of the stereotyped “punk/glam” category and everyone seemed to appreciate Lou and his music.
Happy Birthday Lou. Thank you for making “walking on the wild side” a little less scary and alot MORE COOL for all of us.
Rest easy our Rock ‘n’ Roll Animal.

and finally. a blog.

the last 4 years are gonna play like a movie in my head for the rest of my life. it was the best time from start to finish. everything that has to do with the self-titled album is my favorite memory. even the stuff that wasn’t so easy to go through. cause now i look back and i see why it all happened in the order that it did. we will never make another album like that one. that’s something i’ll always be proud about, and a little sad about, and that’s just the truth. 

but what do i know? the next album might be even better than S/T. i should know better by now than to ever question the process, the plan, or the deep belief that i have in paramore… more so than i even have in myself, alone.  

every night on Writing The Future, while we were on stage, there was always a moment of realization that we can never relive anything. not any single thing. it’s cruel. seriously, we are a generation who lives almost exclusively through our photos and videos and captions, trying to freeze moments in time but it’s all only a shade of us and our experience. what’s real is what those moment create within us… and that’s what we carry with us and that’s what shapes the moments to come. or at least how we perceive them, feel them, live them. memories do serve us when we are the most nostalgic and i suppose i’m always the most nostalgic… but even my memories of the last 4 years won’t fill me the way actually living it all did. 

and that’s got to be why it’s so important to move forward and never live in the past. we can never be fulfilled by a moment that’s gone. if we’re not living in the now (wayne’s world ref) and struggling, striving to find ourselves and each other here in the present then what even is our point? yeah, i know the whole “be present/be content with where you are” spiel sounds like bullshit but it’s true… and no one needs to hear it more than me. con-stant-ly.

speaking of the present: i’ve been wedding planning, attempting to write and sometimes actually writing, moving into a new place, and building a hair-dye company from the ground up. all at the same time. yes, i am completely insane! you should see my crazy eyes. i think they’re permanent now actually.. i’m going to try my best to share bits and pieces of some of all of it as we go along but no promises cause some days i forget the internet exists (and i think that’s a good thing).  

last thing: 

thank you again for Writing The Future. never cried on stage the way i did during “Future” in Portland. the signs you guys made and held up for all the shows were moving and served as a reminder of our purpose and the hope we had for the band in the beginning. thank you guys for creating a community within our “fanbase”. we do what we can to keep it feeling like a family because that’s truly what it feels like to us… but you guys are daily doing all the work to really make it real. nothing felt more right than celebrating S/T with you guys in those gorgeous theaters. 

i’ve typed for long enough now. writing lyrics with carpal tunnel sounds great and all but i’d rather not.

Say My Name/Cry Me A River - The Neighbourhood

Because this is my very first post in terms of music recommendations, I took a lot of time to really think about what I wanted to recommend first and I finally decided on The Neighbourhood’s mashup of Say My Name and Cry Me A River (which seems a bit funny now considering that my first song recommendation is actually a cover of two songs).  The Neighbourhood is one of my favorite artists; I’ve listened to their album I Love You. close to a hundred times, and I’m not even exaggerating—iTunes shows you how many times you’ve played a song (also I was beyond excited when Wiped Out! was released, but I’ll save songs from their albums for another post at another time).

This mashup fits their sound really well, and I just love the way they incorporated elements from each song while still making the cover uniquely theirs.

Have you ever listened to Ravi-Bomb it's literally the fucking worst shit I have ever heard. I couldn't get through that entire song and I'm a kpop fan who likes all kinds of shitty kpop songs so thats really saying something. I was legit glad when San E showed up in the song to stop my bleeding ears

Bruh…this is so mean. And this is coming from someone who used to be quite hard on Ravi. Yes “Bomb” is shit but I the Real1ze albumas a whole was my favorite album from this year. I think it actually still might be. I can’t think of another album (as a whole) I’ve heard this year I liked more than that one. If you don’t like “Bomb” try “Rose” or “Ladi Dadi” or the other one with Yonghwa from CN Blue (forgot the name). All are pretty nice songs, especially in comparison to “Bomb”. I actually did a review on the album if you’d like to see it then search “review” on my blog. It should be there.

A Night In

All I want for Christmas is you….tied up in my bed

Getting to spend your first Christmas with Niall is everything you dreamed it be, maybe even more…

I don’t know what to tag this as, but FAIR WARNING NIALL USES HANDCUFFS ON HIS S.O. and also a daddy kink

merry christmas to you all, unless you don’t celebrate it then I’m sorry i said that

“I can’t believe you’re making us wear these tacky sweaters just to open up presents,” I roll my eyes as I sit down on the carpet floor next to our Christmas tree. This was our second Christmas together, and Niall, my boyfriend, went all out for this year. Last year we couldn’t spend the holidays together due to each other’s work schedules, but over the year I moved in with Niall and transferred jobs so nothing could keep us away from each other which is a good thing since we both like annoying each other. 

The smell of a Bruce spruce filled my nostrils as I sat criss-crossed next to our real tree on this Christmas Eve night. I never had a real tree since my mom was allergic to them, but now looking at the tree that both Niall and I picked out together, I felt a sense of pride overwhelming me. Niall and I also decorated the tree together, stringing lights around its stems and poking our fingers with needles as we strung popcorn on fishing wire. The only arguments that we had while sprucing up the tree was where the ornaments should go. Niall wanted the silver balls to go next to the gold ones and the red and green ones go together, but I insisted that that each color combination should be different but no two same colors should be next to each other.

“Fine you have it your way and I’ll have it mine,” Niall huffed, placing two silver and gold ornaments next to each other. 

“Okay, but your side is going in the back so no one sees it,” I winked and kissed gingerly on the cheek. 

“What are ya sayin’? My side’s ugly or somethin’?” Niall looks at me from the corners of his eyes. He was wearing an ugly Christmas sweater that his cousin Deo gave him last year as a gag gift. 

“No, not at all, baby,” I lied, “It’s just not ideal to look at is all.”

did you watch dan's liveshow it got deep i'd love to hear your take on some of it (esp. the thing with the dog)

Sorry I’m so late. But man, the reactions to this live show in my inbox were amazing. Full scale of emotions right there. We had “he was really weird, I’m so confused” to “what was wrong with him” to “THIS IS THE BEST YOUNOW EVER” and a thousand “opinion on the dog and relationship comment?” messages. Since I’ve been m.i.a for the last week, I have no idea what the general consensus ended up being for most people. But for me? I’m on the this was the best younow ever team.

I mean, talk about a chill show. He seemed so open and self-reflective and he wasn’t afraid to push some boundaries. I was in awe. I feel like we’re always begging him to "give opinions" and this time he kind of delivered. Albeit in a very vague and indefinite way. But I feel like it was quite insightful. I just really loved the relaxed vibe of the show overall. And I definitely thought there was something else mixed in with that ribena lmao.

Let’s start with the first bit about the dog since that is what I got the most messages about.

“I’d love to get a dog. I don’t intend on getting a dog cause I’m not a functional person. I can’t look after myself, never mind a particularly apparently difficult breed of dog. And the thing is…I know I’d be getting a dog to fill a hole. It’s like when you’re trying to save a relationship by having a child or get married or something like that, it’s like ‘you don’t just save a relationship by having a child.’

The Who were my first favorite band. In my mid-teens, my bedroom was papered in magazine photographs and posters of The Who, hung with pop-art mobiles I made from photos of them, and my dresser had a Union Jack painted across its top (a triumph of clumsy masking and brushwork). In the middle of one wall I had painted the bass-drum logo from Keith Moon’s famous “Pictures of Lily” kit. (Another challenge for my mediocre artistry with paints.) I possessed every one of their singles, albums, and compilations, and every magazine that mentioned them. On the “drumset” I made across my bed from old magazines, in the layout of Keith’s drums, I could play along with all of their songs.

The "Trash Everything" Weeb Cousin: Anonymous confession

I will be writing this in my perspective so:

Me: “I” (the pronoun)

Cousin: “G” (an abbreviation)

Ok so I’ll jump straight into the deep end with this. This confession is not as intense as some others, but it still gets the “weeb” point out.

So recently, my family and I took a trip to San Francisco and Los Angeles, California. They also took along my cousin, G, who I knew liked anime a lot and such. He has a pretty low-key weeb appearance, aside from the greasy hair, so it was normal at first.

A couple days prior to our flight, he arrives in our home from Arlington, Texas, where he’s learning English. Everything is normal at first…until after dinner. After eating, my mom let G and I go up to our upstairs TV to watch TV. G asked me what I recommend and I said I recommend Kitchen Nightmares. He was like “Okay, alright”. So I flipped to Kitchen Nightmares on Netflix and told him to wait while I went downstairs to get some water. When I had come back up with the drinks, I saw he had already flipped to the “anime” section of Netflix.
