but elvis was better

A Date With Markiplier

Just a list of my favorite things in this whole ordeal
- bonjour
- the trifecta of Markiplier personas made it in (Dark, Wilford, and the asshole, better-than-thou Markiplier)
- Tyler’s friggin Elvis costume and sideburns
- DARKIPLIER
- Tyler dressing up with a Mark mask not even cut out of the piece of paper it was printed on
- the fact that when you choose horror, Dark doesn’t actually give you four choices. He just gives you one that will move the story forward.
- Tyler and Ethan’s play poster
- the skeleton
-that big ass diamond that isn’t even attached to a real ring
-“close your eyes now. Bwoooop.”
- the fact that I’m pretty confident Amy was the camera person for most of this
- Chica got us all shOOk
- Ethan in a suit
- literally every time the quick transitions had to happen and it was so obvious
- I need makeup because I’m ugly
- Mark’s freaking sandwich waddle
- the fact that when you choose to eat pbj, Marks the one that dies because of peanuts
- the fact that they actually made Mark sit in front of a camera and dig for ten whole minutes
- “Just press X”
- the fact that exit doesn’t really do anything
-Mark’s extension wig in the jail cell
- the frigging pink crocs that are squeaky as everything on this green earth
- the fact that this happened. It was so good and I loved all of it

Got an ask recently about my contouring. I’m not really a makeup expert but here’s what I do.

Two shades on side of forehead, cheeks, under eyebrows to the nose, in the creases of the nose and lip, and one smooth line under the chin from ear to ear. I prefer not to look like I’m wearing makeup, just a personal preference, so I’m conservative with my contours and I always ask someone I trust to check my blending. It’s subtle, not going to stop me from looking like pretty girly man, but it helps.

What I think does the most for emphasizing masculinity is actually the hair. I darken my eyebrows and either draw in or apply crepe hair side burns. I’m only satisfied when my sideburns look fit for Elvis himself. For whatever reason that really sells “man” better than any makeup technique I’ve tried.

Experiment and see what works for you! Don’t give up!!!

Just because a modern day artist breaks a record that was set by either The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Elvis, Madonna, or etc., doesn’t mean that artist is better than the greats. It just means that this generation doesn’t know where true, original music came from and won’t listen to anything else before they form an opinion.

nuggetemily replied to your post “Every so often I get a reminder I’m not totally gay and that reminder…”

it has a lot to do with racism (elvis ripped off black musicians/actors wholesale)

Yes, I’m aware. It was addressed in the show. Sam Phillips wanted a white boy who could sing like “the negroes on the radio” because that was the music teens were into and you couldn’t sell records to respectable white families featuring a black person on the cover. He found it in Elvis. And it worked and Elvis rolled with it, for better or worse. 

So yeah, racism is very probably why men didn’t pick up the moves at the time even though they worked so well for Elvis. My question was less a question and more of a lament that men still don’t dance. Why don’t I see men at the club shaking their asses like women do? It’s a damn shame.

Talib Kweli and Iggy Azalea clash over Macklemore’s “White Privilege II”

On his new song “White Privilege II,” Macklemore raps about appropriation, “The culture was never yours to make better/ You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea.” Iggy was not happy, but when she took her discontent public, Talib Kweli stepped up to shut her down. 

Despite all this, we may want to take a deeper look at Macklemore’s meditation on privilege. In fact, it’s OK to like the song.

Halloween Week, Day 2 : Marauders group Halloween costume, for @lionofadifferentkind

“Now,” James exclaimed, clapping both of his hands together. “Let’s take things a little more seriously. How are we going to dress up for Halloween?”

“There better not be any Elvis out there, otherwise I really am going to Azkaban before the end of this year.” Sirius said lazily from where he lied on the couch, examining his nails.

“You’re going to Azkaban anyway, asshole,” Peter said, his mouth full of candies.

“True.” He replied, smirking. 

They all laughed, when James suddenly noticed something.

“Where’s Moony?”

“He’s probably off wanking or something, he haven’t shagged in ages.”

“You two rabbits shagged last night and the whole boys’ dormitory can witness it.” James said, cringing at the memory of the sounds he had heard.

“Yeah, that’s what i’m saying!” Sirius replied dramatically, throwing his hands to the air.

“How about we dress up as the Beatles?” Peter proposed, trying to change the subject as he felt the candies slowly make their way up his stomach.

“I’m McCartney and no one will tell me otherwise. They won’t have time anyway, I’ll have punched them first.” Sirius laughed to himself.

“I don’t think it’ll be necessary, Padfoot.” James said, turning pale.

“Oh yes i’m sorry, I forgot you were my body guard. My bad.”

James swallowed hard, his eyes fixed somewhere behind the couch where Sirius had sat up.

“What?” Sirius asked, unaware of the presence behind him.

Slowly, he turned around, only to find himself nose to nose with a tall white ghost. He was about to scream when the ghost bent down and pressed its “lips” against Sirius’, shutting him up. James and Petter both exploded in laughter when Remus emerged from the white sheets, smiling crookedly.

“How dare you?” Sirius breahted.

“You’ll get over it, eventually.” Remus replied, bending down once more to capture Sirius’ lips.

i hate those things that are like “so and so’s lyrics from 1974 vs nicki minaj’s stupid hoe lyrics in 2012″ bc in all honesty Stupid Hoe is better than any fucking song the beatles or elvis or whoever the fuck else could have ever made in their entire careers
