bouncing soul

davehause: When my brother Tim was 11 years old, we lost our mom to cancer. It was brutal beyond belief for myself, my dad and our 3 sisters, but even more so for him at such a young age. The only way we got through that ordeal was music. Sharing records, playing guitar, talking about songs was all we could do to bridge our age gap as well as the chasm of sadness.
One of the bands I turned Tim on to at that age was My Chemical Romance. The Loved Ones (my old band) had played some shows with them and they were incredible, channeling Queen and a youthful anger and anxiety into amazing songs and live performances. Frank Iero in particular was a Loved Ones fan, and they were always super supportive and kind to us back then. Tim responded to their music, particularly the Black Parade, and it seemed to be a voice in the wilderness of grief that he could hold on to. (along with the Bouncing Souls, Hot Water Music, and many more). Playing music with my brother for the last 3 years has been one of the most enriching, incredible experiences in my entire life, and the best in my musical career. This tour Tim has gotten to open for and to know Frank and his lovely band, and last night be got to meet all of My Chemical Romance, a band that gave him solace through one of the hardest experiences of life. Much love and respect to these dear souls for helping my kid brother in a profound way.
Music can truly save.

So help me get better because I haven’t been my best, she took a plain black marker started writing on my chest, she drew a line across the middle of my broken heart, and said come on now let’s fix this mess, we can get better, because we’re not dead yet

UT UF MT and HT Sans's S/O gets into an accident and has amnesia but although they don't remember the skele their soul does so they know they love him and stuff


He visits you every day, even if you don’t remember him. He can feel the way your SOUL still jumps when he’s in the room, & that’s all the reassurance he needs to know that he hasn’t lost you quite yet. It’s simple reasoning, but it’s all he needs to keep near you for as long as he has to.


It hurts when he hears the news, & he’s ready to kill every doctor in the vicinity until he picks up on the steady thumping of your SOUL, & the way it keeps trying to leap towards him. Even though you say you can’t remember him. That you don’t know who he is. He’s sure you’re still in there, & until you come back to him, he’ll stay by your side.


He visits you once, & he’d only planned on visiting you once. To say his goodbyes, & leave you to your new life. But then your SOUL started to hum in his company, & he recognized that tune. You were still in there, somewhere, & even if it hurt to know that you weren’t home just yet, it gave him the hope to hold on, just for a little bit.


When you wake up at 2 in the morning to see a complete stranger (much less a skeleton with a glowing red eye) standing in the corner of your room, it’s not a favorable meeting. He doesn’t mind that though. The screaming, the crying, the pleading for your life. Because he’s trained on one thing: the way your SOUL is bouncing like he’d just offered you the whole world on a silver platter. & that’s all that matters to him.

The Bouncing Souls
That’s Youth (Anti-Flag cover)
BYO Split Series Vol. 4

We’d only been friends for a short time,
but in just an hour or two

It was like we’d been friends our entire lives though

And I was so in love with you, but not sure if I should say…
But then I thought, “Yeah, I’m scared and I don’t know if I should, but I’ll do it anyway!”

That’s youth! That’s all.

Saving Hope (S3-5x12 things I loved (99% Lintz)

-Dr Maggie Lin - her personality is just - who wouldn’t fall in love with her? 

-Dr Sydney Katz - the way she just stands up for her beliefs and values. 

- how Lintz met, how Dr Katz was so intense for Maggie. The contrast between these two characters which come together at the end to be much more similar than we first thought. 

- the progression of both characters in their attitudes both in work and in self. Especially Maggie since we’ve watched her grow since S1 and goodness she was adorable but impulsive and always had a took what she wanted attitude. So, so different from how she is with Sydney. It’s like ripping open a present vs taking off each layer making sure not to rip the wrapping of a Christmas present. 

- Dr Katz’s glasses 

- Maggie’s hair length from S1 - S5. I just can’t deal. It’s gorgeous and well her personality shifts to match it too. Well I guess that’s the point. Maturation. But really she’s beautiful. And she has grown to be such a great doctor

- The friendship between Alex and Maggie. Also between Zach and Maggie. That progressive love for each other that grew so significantly throughout the series. 

- The Leave/Stay theme of Lintz. They are basically built off this theme, (kinda like Julia Taylor Ross said in her interview they’re a ‘will they won’t they’ couple). 

- The  ‘I love you’ from Sydney that probably Maggie was not expecting at all. I wasn’t expecting it and I think that’s what makes it so real so raw. That even when they’re in conflicts, dilemmas, arguing-ish, that Sydney doesn’t ‘want to be with her any less’, that Sydney loves her. And well you know what they say, if you love them, let them go. And that’s what Sydney did. She couldn’t be the reason for Maggie giving up something that she loved and regretting it. She wanted Maggie to be happy. 

- Because the thing is Sydney knows how important their careers are in each of their hearts. They value being a doctor almost over everything and really nothing triumphs the essence their job gives them and what they can give to others. Their whole life, it was building up to this point - this pinnacle of where their endless studying, love for being a doctor brings them to the best. They didn’t really have anything else that they wholeheartedly loved. Maggie even says “I’ve got nothing to live for”. That is until they started really, creeping in into each other’s heart, lodging themselves there and staying there. Because for that period where Sydney was in Israel gone from Hope Zion and Maggie was finding someone to date, they were both in each other’s heart staying there subconsciously and slowing invading, but well, they probably did know it but didn’t acknowledge it, decided that it was impossible. 

- The respect this show has for differences, whether its with religion, culture, sexuality among many other things. 

- Little bit of Dawn: the unfolding of the tender hearted Dawn. That one scene where she attempts to get on everyone’s good side in order to get her chief of surgery role back and Zach told her to be her but kinder and she praised Maggie and the residents. That little proud smile and giddiness after Zach praises her was so cute. Also her scenes with Giselle shows just why she is such a wonderful doctor. Also that she says what she wants to say. Her dignified aura. 

-also Shahir

- From the beginning Maggie felt something for Sydney (‘from the moment I met you I always wondered what it would be like to be with you’) and her cautious walking and patience with Sydney was sorta her defence mechanism. So that it wouldn’t hurt as much if and when she did leave. (That conversation with Zach pretty much sums it up) Then he replies with “I think you’re in love”. Sigh. 

- The fact that during the little amounts of time Sydney spent with Hershel, she spent it talking about Maggie. Which also implies that she is very attentive with Maggie, well she is a doctor, but knowing her nose twitches when she fibs - let’s just say she pays a lot of attention on Maggie. 

- free falling 

- The feeling when Maggie passed her boards. I was so happy. Hard work pays off. 

- That Maggie was probably Sydney’s first. First for a lot of things. 

- Also “ you love her don’t you.” to Sydney and Sydney’s face when it all clicks.

- ‘(thought about you every day.’ ‘ I thought about you too’ Then that kiss, that makes Maggie feel like she was being strangled on the inside. That deep breath she tried to take afterwards was all too telling. She felt it way too much that she was finding it hard to breathe. Isn’t that just….sigh.  

- Sydney’s defence mechanism was leaving and not staying in touch. From what is seen in the series, in order to not hurt others or herself, she always is the one leaving. From leaving Maggie after the first kiss to be engaged to Herself, leaving to Israel, then leaving her girlfriend after finding out that Maggie really was the one, leaving so her family didn’t have to see her, leaving when Maggie got her job. So when she stays - it’s all too heartwarming, because for her that is her way of loving someone. 

- How fast Maggie bounced back into her soul and body after her injury. Like her personality is just so - I dunno I think she just always willing to try, to be better. 

- Maggie with Bree as her kickass guardian angel. Just in general how much Maggie cares for her patients. Like the one time she had the patient with the drinking problem and she did all she could to help her. 

- But also on the other hand how heartwarming and cool Maggie was when she went over to the Shelby after the bomb explosion. She never really looked out for herself, she went straight to helping others, treating others, saving others. 

- ‘ I owed you’ then that longing heavy look as Sydney walks out of Hope Zion. And after that episode, Maggie was kinda all over the place. (Let’s just say which is an implication of her longing for Sydney, but knowing she won’t get to be with her - reinforced by her desperation to find someone - even with Zach.) 

- How Maggie wears her heart on her sleeves sometimes and when Sydney comes back in 410, she literally couldn’t take a proper breath. She looked so…lost. Because that brimming feeling of hope was building back inside her and she knows that she should keep a certain distance because Sydney always leaves. 

- how sad Sydney looked when she saw Maggie and Dey going to the Crab (i can’t remember the name) together. 

- I love watching Maggie and Sydney work in surgery together. Well I love watching everyone in surgery but Maggie especially. Just their dedication to medicine and to their patients. 

- Maggie’s shaking hands after Becca’s surgery tells a story. 

- The silent confirmation that if they find Martha’s ashes, that Lintz has a chance to be something. 

- ‘I don’t want an epic love affair with you Maggie, I just want you.” 

- ‘Stay’ then the eyebrow 

- ‘But seriously, we need a bigger bed’ then the little kiss. And hehehe domestic aren’t they. 

- How basically everyone teased Maggie about the ‘Dr Katz in the house’ and how utterly discombobulated Maggie was about what she was feeling when she had waited three years and ‘now it’s here’ 

- Maggie forgives quite quickly. She’s a very accepting person isn’t she. 

- ‘I chose you’ - and she meant every word

-5x12 Sydney isn’t one to keep in touch. When Maggie told her to call her after she lands in London. She gave a heavy ‘sure’ but she wasn’t going to call. I didn’t think she would. Because it hurts less to stay away completely than to have tidbits of an almost. 

- Just thinking of Sydney berating herself for not staying with Maggie. That this job was everything but so was the job offered to Maggie. Why was it she couldn’t be the one staying, why did Maggie have to be the one leaving with her. Maggie meant everything to her, so she stayed, above everything, above all the times she told herself that she will not find love because she’s gay and she’s an orthodox Jewish, she found something worth, someone worth everything, someone worth staying for. 

- the fact that Maggie never chased after Sydney after finding out that their first kiss that ‘threw her for a loop’ was more than just a kiss for Sydney. It held dire consequences and religion conflict. From there on, she was ever so patient with Sydney. That she never really chased after her. When Sydney was leaving to israel, she tried to do it so subtly but she couldn’t directly utter the words ‘stay’, not again, not after finding out she was leaving for someone else, or in their final episode where Sydney told her to not come with her to London. Those words rung in Maggie and she listened because isn’t that want was for the best. That’s what Sydney wanted. But deep down, well not even deep down, everyone could see it, she wanted to be with her, she wanted Sydney to tell her to leave with her. ‘well she was the one that told me to stay’ - Maggie’s brimming tears when she said that just did it for me. But yet again Sydney was leaving. (But that letter, it was basically a please come after me.)

- especially knowing the contents of the letter. A verse from the Book of Ruth. from the moment Sydney wrote that letter and placed it on the floor, I believed she wasn’t going to leave. That she was hoping, that Maggie would come after her. That Maggie loved her like Sydney loved her. She wasn’t going to go. Not anywhere without Maggie. 

- The kisses. I especially loved the ones in 511, the continuous pecks on Maggie’s cheeks was simply too adorable. 

- That little look back from Sydney when she first kissed Maggie. 

- From S3 upwards to S5 Maggie stays and Sydney leaves. Then in 512 Maggie leaves for Syd and Syd stays for Maggie. They both stayed for each other and leave with each other. 

- Dr Katz’s jokes in S5 

- ‘Syd’ 

- !RomanticMaggie 

- ‘my one is crossing the pond without me’ let me reiterate ‘my one’

- ‘I love you and I would give everything up to be with you.’ my heart. 

- ‘Don’t urge me to leave you. Where you go I will go. Where you lodge I will lodge. Where you die. I will die. And there I will be buried.’ 

- ‘you had me at Shalom’ 

- The airport - Can we breathe and just appreciate everything here. Departure of Lintz but the journey, oh goodness the Lintz journey was - I don’t know it’s etched into my heart like no other couple. (I love Shoot from POI truly) But this couple this couple was so real, so normal, so human and I just, it truly gives me hope. So goodbye and thank you for this wonderful creation, for Lintz, this representation and this emblem of hope. 

Happy endings and beginnings to everyone.

Lots of punk! Not a shocker, I guess. No Ghost, not much metal, but still not a bad mix.

Anyway, I tag @metal-heathen, @mercyfulkate, @kidzbopdeathmetal, @bodynblood, @vulnavia, @fatbottomedghouls, @tekni, @geekymetalhead, @excuseforaking, @ghoulstars and anyone else who wants to show off their great music taste.

it was a well known fact that dancing wasn’t a career choice that lasted

Jungkook could spin- he could spin tales, he could spin wheels, and oh how he could spin on his toes; he’d pirouette forever if he could, away from his parents with tight faces and thinly veiled disappointment, away from a degree that held no place in his heart, but not away from Kim Taehyung. Kim Taehyung with a smile that warmed his core and spilt his secrets, with lightly calloused touches, softened by tears, that shot tremors up his skin, with a pair of lips that ate away his “I’m okays” and “I’ll be fines”. Maybe it was time to hang up his shoes.

anonymous asked:

im new to identifying as punk,,, what are some good blogs, places for clothes and shit, and bands?? or anything else useful/helpful???

Welcome to being a punk! I’m gonna kinda start at the beginning with blogs. I don’t personally follow a lot of punk blogs but they’re everywhere, search the punk tag and look through the blogs and find people you think are cool!
Clothes are kinda weird. You can mod shit you find at thrift stores in your area to suit your tastes or you can buy online in stores like angryyoungandpoor and looking around on etsy. You can find studs on any website you morally agree with, in local music stores if you’re ready t fork out the cash to buy local, or on You can also find patches on etsy or make your own! I make mine and have been making stencils for some of my newer ones with cardstock but I normally free hand them with acrylic paints. Experiment if you want to make your own patches and find what you like, just because I like one method doesn’t mean you will. Have fun with your clothing and damn any societal restrictions that were holding you back from being comfortable
Bands vary depending on your own personal taste but my personal faves are
Against Me!
Ajj (they’re a little more folksy)
Alkaline Trio (their style varies by album(
Bad Religion
The Bouncing Souls
Daddy Issues
Dead Kennedys
The Distillers
Fabulous Disaster
Face to face
Hot Water Music
Leftöver Crack
Limp Wrist
The Menzingers
Pansy Division
Screeching Weasel
Social Distortion

I hope this gave you somewhere to start!
Please feel free to add more my dudes
