When you get this reply with 5 things that make you happy and send it to the last 10 people in your activity :) (you do not have to do this if you don't want to so do not fret)

ooh thanks for this I wouldn’t mind doing it at all :)

1) the fact that somebody just “talked” to me
2) the mere existence of Troye Sivan Mellet
3) the music I’m listening to right now (Mendelssohn’s Ruy Blas Overture)
4) (this is getting difficult now) the existence of my crush (no further comment shall be made)
5) and how could I forget Troye’s album ;)

It’s surprising to see smart people talk about Swift with such breathlessly positive overtures, not only because — like pop stars before her and pop stars after her — her music is simple and unfussy and infused with inane platitudes, but also because there appears to be something more opportunistic and sinister at play. When Taylor Swift does the mega-pop stardom act, she does it to the tilt. Swift has to be the person with the prettiest friends, the biggest records, the most popular and successful and groanworthily obvious boyfriend. The underdog narrative that the Swift machine has built is one of forced falsehoods; Swift is not coming from behind. She’s been ahead since she started. And watching her collect best friends during a moment in history when womanhood is finally beginning to feel valued does not only feel uncomfortable — it feels evil.

To think of her as womanhood incarnate is to trick oneself into forgetting about “Bad Blood” and “Better Than Revenge.” Swift isn’t here to help women — she’s here to make bank. Seeing her on stage cavorting with World Cup winners and supermodels was not a win for feminism, but a win for Taylor Swift. Her plan — to be as famous and as rich as she can possibly be — is working, and by using other women as tools of her self-promotion, she is distilling feminism for her own benefit.

That’s it. That’s the whole show.

A clang that once passed unnoticed now reverberates through our bones
The hip-hop, the new pop, a distant memory for us
The silent lifters
Or rather the not so silent

For before our noise was masked, outdone by,
Now every grunt and sigh and breath is heard and forms the symphony of exercise

Metal is the prelude, the overture and conclusion
Clamps slide across bars, bars land in the open arms of racks, racks resonate with themselves like the chiming of a bell

We are not weight lifters any more, we are priests and parish combined
Meeting God in the form of a bench


So on the subject of interesting Pacific Overtures arrangements, here’s Mandy Patinkin singing “Pretty Lady” as a trio with himself.
