Here’s a good Dan song to listen to today: Minecraft Is For Everyone by Starbomb

Here’s a good Grumps episode to watch today:
Bloodborne The Old Hunters: Top Notch Teamwork - Part 98

Here’s a cool Dan fact for you today:
Here are Danny’s opinions on M. Night Shyamalan’s movies in order: The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable- so good, Signs- okayish, The Village- garbage, Lady in the Water- “That’s where we really started to go off the deep end”, The Last Airbender- “I’d pretty much rather-” Arin interrupts him and they never get back but I think it’s safe to say that wasn’t going to be a very nice thing he was going to end that with.

Here’s a good picture of Dan to look at today:

I was in this cab alone listening to “Higher” by Rihanna because Anti had just come out. And I had a little cry and I was just like ‘it’s always going to be this way, at some point with everyone it’s going to be this way.’ But the song kind of ended up turning into a bit of a protective talismans for me. I was like, you know what, I’m always gonna have myself so I have to really nurture this relationship and feel good about hanging out with myself and loving myself.

HS Quotidien Interview

Hi folks! Here is a transcript of Harry’s interview with Yann Barthès. I didn’t want to spend too much time on it, so I apologize if there are a few typos. However, I moonlight as a lyrics transcriber so it should be pretty accurate… This includes a bit that was cut in the replay version, so don’t be surprised. 


YB: Welcome to Paris.

HS: Thank you.

YB: How are you?

HS: Um, good. I’m good.

YB: Can you answer in French? Comment ça va? (= how are you?)

HS: Umm, I have… a little bit…a tiny bit… Très bien. Et toi? (= very well and you?)

 YB: Well, very well, thank you. Thank you very much for being here. We always start interviews with international stars with this question: can you give us your five favourite words in French? Or a sentence that you know in French? I was told you know some.

HS: “Comment vous-faîtes un café si délicieux?” (=how do you make such a good coffee?)

YB: Ah, ah, ok.

HS: (mumbles something I can’t understand) It’s all I have.

YB: Do you often use that sentence?

HS: … no. Yes! Yeah…

YB: Who or what comes to mind when you think of France?

HS: …. um… best people I’ve known… I think *her* (points to a fan). And then I guess…Fabien Barthez.

YB: (slightly surprised) Fabien Barthez, yes. (note: he is a French footballer who played in the 90s) So Harry, you are 23 and you are one of the biggest pop stars in the world. You know that everyone is watching you very carefully (note: the French expression YB uses, which is not mean, kind of implies: waiting for you to trip or fail) with your new album, Sign of the Times. Why did you choose this song? Why Sign of the Times? It’s very far from what we expected from you.

HS: Yeah, I think I, uh, I wanted to… I always liked music that makes me feel something and I, you know I think…writing it, I kind of felt something and wanted to put that out. I think it is a good indicator, um, for me of what the album means to me. So that’s why I wanted to go with that first. I think.

YB : Billboard Magazine wrote that this single is, I quote, “one of the most ambitious song in pop music of the past decade”. Not bad… do you have friends at Billboard?

HS: (cute little laugh) I don’t know anyone at the Billboard.

YB : Upon listening to it, we think of David Bowie, of Queens… Who else inspired you?

HS: Um, I mean…. I think, I think, everyone, anything, any song you’ve ever listened to growing up or throughout your life that you’ve enjoyed (…he then says something I can’t catch) so I think a lot of different things but I think, uh,  I wanted to… I wanted to just write, and see what came out …. and see, you know I didn’t know what I sounded like, to make an album, so the process was as interesting for me as I think it will be for people listening to the album for the first time.

YB: Do you know any French singer?  This is a trick question… and don’t say Serge Gainsbourg!

HS: I know Woodkid.

YB: Woodkid?

HS: Woodkid, yeah. He directed my music video so, uh…

YB: Why did you choose him?

HS: Um, I just think, I think his videos are amazing. I think he is a really, really talented guy. And I love French people. So I wanted to work with ‘em.

YB : (makes faces at Harry) When you are in Spain, you say that you love Spanish people…

HS: No? Great tie, by the way. Good tie.

YB : Really? (looks for the label for half a second) Uh, it’s French.

HS: I’m sure. Wouldn’t be a Spanish tie, would it?

YB: Can I see your loafers? I was told you have great loafers. (zoom in on Harry’s Gucci rainbow shoes). Wow, yeah. What is it? It’s not French, it’s Italian. (a fan in the audience then says it is Gucci).

HS: It’s not, no.

YB: It’s from the European Union.

HS: (laughs) Probably, yeah.

YB: It seems like everything is very easy for you. Has everything really been easy for you?

HS: Um, was what simple?

YB: Well, your life. You have a dream life. With 1D.

HS: Oh, I mean, I feel very lucky to be able to be making music, I feel very lucky to able to make this (points to his album) and I feel very lucky today being in France (… says something I don’t understand…) singing this song. And uh, yeah, I can’t complain.

YB: And what was less pleasant?

HS: (pauses)Um… I don’t know.

YB: One thing…

HS: Um, I think, I think when you care so much about something it’s hard to get to a point where you feel like you’re finished. I think you always feel like your adding, like you wanna add something to make it better. So I think the hardest part was getting to that part and be like, ok, it’s finished. Um, yeah.

YB: You said in the May issue of Rolling Stones that a big part of your album was inspired by a women. (Leans forward and asks sarcastically) Really?

HS: No, I think, I think, honestly, I think the album is much more about me than it is about anyone else. I think if I said the album is about a woman, it kind of feels like… and I…uh, I don’t know, I put a lot of work into it so I don’t feel, I don’t feel like it revolves around a woman. I feel like, it is a lot about me and things like (??) Yeah, I feel like it’s more about me than about anyone else. (makes a cute sassy little face)

YB: How do you navigate going from a group adventure, being in a boyband, to a solo career as an adult?

HS: Um, I mean, it’s been a lot of fun, I think. You know, we were very lucky to get to do some amazing things. And at the moment in our lives, we’re at a time when everyone is trying their own thing and having a good time. It’s been amazing to see everyone do so well. So if I can, kind of, do as well as the other boys, that would be amazing.

YB: Do you talk or text them everyday? Whatsapp?

HS: I don’t have that. But yeah, we talk, yeah. Yeah, absolutely, yeah. It’s uh, and everyone’s been bringing stuff out and it’s been, it’s been a lot going on, so it’s been… it’s been a good time.

YB: Here is the album cover. Can you describe it? Why this photo?

HS: Yeah… Um, so… (cute little sound) I worked with, um, I worked with a photographer, Harley Weir. I’m a massive, massive fan of her, of her work. And uh, it was an amazing opportunity to get to work with her and I think she’s incredible. And I felt like, this was what I wanted…

YB: Why is it pink? Why the water, why the back? Why…why?

HS: (shrugs)

YB : It’s beautiful! But why pink for example?

HS: I dunno man.

YB: (fakes surprise) Really? That, you don’t know?

HS: I don’t know. Um, I don’t know. I don’t think I’ll ever want to…

YB: (interrupts Harry) Some say it is the colour of rock’n roll?

HS: (pauses). Apparently so. I dunno. I think, I think, it means something to me and I think if it means anything to anyone else. I wouldn’t want to take away from that by explaining it. I think the cool thing about stuff like photos and art is you can just leave it, you don’t have to explain it.

YB: So everyone can see whatever they want, is that it?

HS: Yes, exactly.

YB : Have you seen that? (shows a video of fans reacting to Sign of the Times). Your fans film themselves listening to your song for the first time… So there are some very relevant analysis… (the video continues to play out) Do you read what people say about you on social media, here on YouTube, or Twitter, or Instagram. You use Instagram, right?

HS: Yes, I use it a little bit. (To the crowd that sounds sceptical) Yeah, I use it a little bit! I mean I wish everyone was having as good a time as the girl that was (makes vague arm movements). That, that’s what I do when I listen to it. So…

YB: Do you do your own Insta posts, with your own fingers, or is it someone else?

HS: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mine.

YB: Do you still vote in Redditch?

HS: …in?

YB: Redditch.

HS: Where I was born? I don’t live in Redditch anymore.

YB: So you don’t vote there. When was the last time you voted?

HS: No, London, yeah.

YB: Do you have an opinion on Brexit?

HS: Um…

YB: Welcome to Europe by the way!

HS: Thank you very much, thanks for having me. Um, I mean I don’t… I don’t really comment on politics. Um, to me I think anything that brings people together is better than something that keeps people apart. Uh, that’s, yeah…

YB: And yet, you do support legal equality. Man, woman, heterosexual, homosexual. It is politics, isn’t it?

HS: Um, I don’t know, that doesn’t feel like politics to me, I think. Stuff like equality feels much more like fundamentals. I feel like everyone really is equal. That doesn’t feel like politics to me.

YB: Do you know that your fans are very fetishist. They know every tattoo, every piece of jewellery you have, they have a heart attack when you cut your hair. So clearly, here, you are playing on their nerves. Today, you are playing on their nerves.

HS: (a bit coy) Ok. Is it?

YB: Yes, of course. (shows pictures of Harry’s tattoos) Yes, clearly. What is your favourite tattoo?

HS: Um, I think uh… probably, I don’t know actually.

YB: What is the last one?

HS: The latest is this one, there (points to the Arlo tattoo). And this guy (point to Jackson). And this guy (points back to Arlo).

YB: Jackson?

HS: This guy (point to the bottom of the bee? I’m not sure). This guy (points to another tattoo on his right arm, off camera, and then to the rose).

YB: (laughs) All at the same time?

HS: Yes, it is close. (it is what I hear but the French interpreter translated it by “there is a lot”)

YB: And your hair? What’s the deal with your hair? How many tons of hair products have you used when you were in 1D (note: in French, there was no connotation of the 1D era being over or not)

HS: (sigh) Yeah, like a lot. I think a lot, yeah.

YB: You are in the next Christopher Nolan movie. It’s called Dunkirk.

HS: Yeah.

YB: How did you end up there?

HS: Um, I auditioned.

YB: There, there we see you (as images of Harry in Dunkirk are shown on screen)

HS: There I am. Yeah, it’s me. Um, yeah, I auditioned. Um, yeah, it was great, it was an amazing experience. It’s gonna be a really cool movie.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

YB: Harry, it feels like we’ve known you since you were just a kid. The world discovered you in 2010 on the seventh season of X Factor. (shows a clip of Harry’s audition) So in this video you are alone but Simon Cowell, member of the jury, has an idea. He puts you together with Zayn, Louis, Liam and Niall and you become One Direction. You are the one who came up with the name One Direction and the five of you sell millions of albums. One Direction is quickly considered as the new Beatles, you fill the biggest avenues in the world, the whole planet talks about you. When you travel, we feel for your eardrums… you become the pride of the UK. Prime Minister David Cameron even makes a cameo in one of your videos… you sing in front of the Queen… but in 2015, bang!… Zane leaves the band. The fans can’t get over it… but they can rest easy now, one of their favourites is on the cover of Rolling Stones, he will be in the next Christopher Nolan movie, plays Mick Jagger on SNL… but what you don’t know is that we already met in 2012 (shows a clip of Harry talking in French)… you were doing promo in France… and now I have questions for you.

First, when you are in the car (Harry is shown on screen surrounded by a crowd of fans, trying to get to his car) and fans are coming at you from everywhere, do you see that? (shows a photo of faces squashed against a window).

HS: Uh, I think I actually lost my shoes that day. And then I got in the car… I got in the car and I was like, I don’t have any shoes (… note: I can’t make out what he says next.)

YB: I have a second question. Do you always do that before going on stage (shows a clip of Harry and Zayn having their teeth and nostrils checked out). Do you still do that? Shall we do it?

HS: No.

YB: Really? You won’t do it?

HS: (shields himself with his hand and shows YB his teeth and nostrils) Thank you. 

YB: What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked in an interview?

HS: Um… Mm… um, I think it actually was a French interview. I got asked if I would uh, if I would pee in a sink.

YB: Why, indeed, that is weird!

HS: It was the first question!

YB: Well, it sets the mood!

HS: Yeah

YB: And what question do you never want to hear again? Did I ask it?

HS: (turns to where the audience is giving suggestions) Which one? Oh, crush.

YB: What?

HS: Crush.

YB: Oh, that… (makes a heart of his hands) Ok, good. I haven’t asked that. Phew. Do you know that at a young French writer has just published a novel about you? It’s called « Styles », it’s published by Jean-Claude Lattès. It is a novel about the writer’s obsession with you. It’s in French so well…

HS: Aaah?

YB : You can translate it. I’m giving it to you

HS: Is this true?

YB: It is true. He dedicated it to you. Jean-Claude Lattès is a very serious publishing house. It is called “Styles”. So read it.

HS: Thank you

YB: Thank you very much Harry styles for coming on our show. His first self-titled album comes out on May 12th. Thank you very much, have a good trip back

 


I really loved that interview. I thought Harry was very relaxed and it was lovely to see him having a good time, laughing and interacting with the audience. I liked that YB addressed Harry as an equal, joked and was interested in what Harry thought as a musician and as a person. All in all, it was very respectful and set the record straight on many RS controversial points.

Also, there a was segment later in the show called #fakenews and one of the joke was someone saying “Harry Styles doesn’t make real music” and then getting slapped across the face and a big #FAKENEWS coming on screen!

I think I need to find away to rid myself of all the sinning I did when I wrote Namjoon’s lmao 

[ Jimin ] [ Taehyung ] [ Yoongi ]

—-

  • everyone knows he’s highkey a freak, listen to some of his songs…
  • that being said, he’s dominant and daddy af
  • he’s going to love having you BEG for him
  • “you have to tell me exactly what you want baby” “how do you want me to fuck you baby?” “where do you want me to touch you baby?”
  • he’d love giving you hickeys that were dark af
  • you’re going to need turtlenecks to hide your hickeys
  • hickeys on your inner thighs would be his absolute favorite
  • his fingers are going to send you over the edge every. single. time.
  • you’ll be shaking and begging him to fuck you by the time he’s done teasing you
  • Namjoon is super into foreplay
  • he’d love receiving handjobs and blowjobs
  • he’d buy you a lot of lingerie or underwear that was basically just a few strings but is still technically underwear
  • he’d order you to wear them when he was out with you
  • public teasing
  • Namjoon would love to get a rise out of you in public and he’d always be pleasantly surprised when you began to tease him back
  • public sex
  • “having sex in a public restroom is not romantic Namjoon…”
  • “you should have thought about that before you made me hard Y/N.”
  • kinks like bondage and the daddy kink and he probably has a pain kink as well
  • THIS BEING SAID
  • IT WAS NOT LIKE THIS AT FIRST AT FIRST THIS BOY WAS SMILING AND GIGGLING AND TRYING HIS BEST TO NOT LOOK LIKE A COMPLETE DORK BUT THE SECOND HE GOT COMFORTABLE WITH YOU AND YOU GOT COMFORTABLE WITH HIM FLUFFY SEX WAS A THING OF THE FUCKING PAST
  • though he’d prefer rough sex, he’d try his best to be gentle when you asked him too
  • he’d love when you left scratches down his back
  • shower sex… yes please
  • Namjoon is never sub, let’s not kid ourselves
  • basically Namjoon would be a giant fluff ball at first and the sex would be pretty tame for him but the second he got comfortable with you and you were comfortable with him, he’d get pretty wild and kinky but he’d always makes sure you were comfortable with whatever he did because he respects you and wants to please you

anonymous asked:

POTENTIALLY ODD QUESTION INCOMING: but uh what songs remind you of chanbaek the most?

Alright now when I list these off, you have to know I think of Chanbaek in different situations when listening to these songs because we DON’T actually know what their relationship IS (apart from good friends of course) so I don’t just listen to happy love songs and go “OH THAT’S SO THEM uwu” I actually have different situations in mind as to what might be there.

1. Emoticons - The Wombats

I’m going to be honest, I really wanted to make a Chanbaek video with this song. However, The Wombats use a lot of odd wording and metaphors so not everyone would understand why the hell I made a Chanbaek video with this song. Anyway, the song is about two people. These two people are in a relationship that is purely friends with sexual acts (so friends with benefits basically) but they feel there’s more between them except they both refuse to acknowledge it and instead just stick to sex. Person A (singer) cares very much for person B and wants to do nothing but be with them and spoil them rotten. However, person A knows that’ll never happen, yet they still stick with being friends with benefits with person B because it’s better than nothing and they just want person B in their life. For me, I imagined what if Chanbaek did have a relationship like this and Chanyeol was person A (since he spoils Baekhyun all the time) and Baekhyun was person B. Now, if you listen to the song, you might not have any idea where tf I’m getting any of this from and just be confused. So yeah I don’t think I could really make a Chanbaek vid with this asdfgh.

2. Lies -  Jane XØ

Basically again, a friends with benefits kinda deal. Person A (singer) and person B argue all the time but still have a strong attraction to each other. However, for person B it is purely sexual while person A is in love with person B but refuses to admit it. Yet person A still calls person B theirs even though they have no romantic relationship. For this I imagined Baekhyun as person A and Chanyeol as person B just because I can see Baekhyun trying suppress those feelings but still see Chanyeol as ‘his’. One line that’s especially powerful for me is “If I think I’m in love I’m the only one who’ll ever know.”

3.  In Your Arms (Nebbra Remix) - Crystal Fighters

This song doesn’t need to be explained it’s just a sweet song that could apply to the perspective of either Chanyeol or Baekhyun, but I like to think Baekhyun because Chanyeol has big arms eheheheh. It’s just a sweet song and the remix makes it super upbeat and sweet so I love it.

4. YDU (Pluto Remix) - Opia

Basically for this, person A (singer) and person B have a fucked up relationship (not abusive I just mean the emotions and the way they show their love to each other can at times seem like they hate each other so hate love). However, person A is just extremely captivated by person B and person B doesn’t quite seem to understand that. For this I see person A as Chanyeol and person B as Baekhyun. One line in particular that made me think “This is definitely Chanyeol” is “Come back, don’t you realise I’ll go wherever you go” because Chanyeol just follows Baekhyun everywhere and there are a few moments where Chanyeol just looks whipped by Baekhyun.

5.  Wrong (Party Pupils Remix featuring Taylor Bennett) - MAX

The song is self explanatory. They fukin, they know they shouldn’t be fukin, but they are anyway cause they’re too obsessed with each other and they don’t give a shit. You can imagine either Chanyeol or Baekhyun’s perspectives for this one.

6. Powerful - Major Lazer

This song is also self explanatory but it’s just THEM you know?? They both have so much power over each other and are each other’s strength and I like this song a lot just because it sings from two of the same perspectives of two people who are just everything to each other.

7. Unfair - EXO

Look just look up the English lyrics for this there is such a massive Chanbaek vibe it makes me wanna punch Chanyeol in the god damn face because it especially makes me think from Chanyeol’s perspective since Chanyeol just sometimes stares at that boy with the most adoring eyes and gOd dAMMIT

8. Her - Eery

This song doesn’t really have any lyrics, I don’t know how to explain it but it just gives me really soft Chanbaek feels. Like it just gives me that whole vibe of Chanyeol and Baekhyun just thinking of each other and being happy mushy messes asdfgh look I don’t know but this song is so sweet to me.

9. Creep - Radiohead

This song is an absolute classic. I see this more from Baekhyun’s perspective because I feel like Baekhyun really looks up to Chanyeol a lot for being so self confident and talented and basically have properties he just really admires and loves, but Baekhyun just sees himself as someone not suited to be with Chanyeol yet he still wants Chanyeol to just notice him and be around him. This song is really gorgeous to me and honestly if you haven’t heard it HOW HAVEN’T YOU HEARD IT it is really so heart wrenching.

10. Mistakes - Prelow

Fuck do I really love this song at the moment like REALLY!! This gives me a really really big Chanbaek vibe and I really want to make a video with this and let me explain WHY! BASICALLY person A (singer) has a kind of influence over person B and person B’s whole being just gets asdfgh when person A is around so they hold it in around person A. However, at first person A doesn’t want to see anything sexual or romantic with person B because they’re just friends but even though person A is constantly thinking about person B they WON’T ADMIT IT!! Person A is Chanyeol and person B is Baekhyun. NOW PLEASE LET ME EXPLAIN SOME OF THE LYRICS SO YOU ALL GET WHAT I SEE IN THIS SONG!

“I’m not confused, it’s just you’re making me think of all our conversations missing their link” - This is Chanyeol (look I am just saying Chanyeol not person A at this point) thinking about all the conversations they’ve had that seem to end on really open suggestions or can be taken as something MORE than friends LOOK IT’S HARD TO EXPLAIN but it’s just a strong line to me!

“And my dick takes over, and I’m thinkin’ bout your lips” - Listen I’m only putting this in here because you guys would just chuck a giggle at the dick part BUT the reason it says that is because IT IS CHANYEOL NOT THINKING REASONABLY and he just suddenly starts thinking about Baekhyun and how gorgeous he is and he can’t control his thoughts. THE LINE IS NOT MEANT TO BE LAUGHED AT I ACTUALLY LIKE THIS LINE.

“It seems the key was not to peek through the locks” - Chanyeol knows Baekhyun likes him and it’s because he looked too into things and found things out and he wish he didn’t because now he’s thinking and feeling these things that he shouldn’t be thinking and feeling and it’s made their relationship awkward and fuckign I really love this song.

“But all your makeup’s running and I’m walking you home” + “But all those pretty people are still going home” - THIS IS LIKE okay I love this because it’s basically saying Chanyeol can just get boned by anyone like he can just go out and have a good fuck by some gorgeous person (hence the ‘all those pretty people’ line) but he DOESN’T he stays with BAEKHYUN who may just be crying over something and Chanyeol doesn’t have to deal with that but he still DOES and even if Baekhyun isn’t acting badly drunk he will STILL bring Baekhyun back home with him and let him stay the night (but not for sexual things literally just to sleep because THAT’S THE POINT!!)

“But we’re too damn sober for mistakes like this” - Okay THIS line is THE WHOLE POINT OF THE SONG because what it’s saying is we could get drunk and we could just fuck and both have a good time BUT they know that’s WRONG and Chanyeol ESPECIALLY knows that’s a mistake because Baekhyun loves him. SO the song line is we both know what’s going on here to not just let go and indulge in each other AND IF THAT ISN’T THE MOST ASDGH

Look I don’t know if you guys can see Chanbaek in this but I REALLY love this god damn song and I’ve listened to it so much help  m e.


Okay well that’s all I got for that sorry this was so long but yes my music taste is a bit everywhere but still ENJOY THOSE SONGS!!

(also if you don’t like chanbaek I’m sorry this was probably really cringey for you and I just wanna point out I don’t believe that they are or aren’t real I am very on the fence about a lot of idol relationships simply because we just really can’t know)

anonymous asked:

hey! so im the person who asked for musical recs and im hella new to musicals so i've only listened to hamilton, tgc, deh, and heathers. thanks!

okay, awesome. i think the best way to do this would be to break it up into a few categories. and of course, there’s tons of shows out there that i can’t possibly all mention here! so keep that in mind. these are just a few of my personal faves. (and don’t think you need to listen to all of them! think of this as just a list of possibilities.)

1. THE OLD-SCHOOL CLASSICS–pre 1970, very traditional music, relatively straightforward plots, resolutions, etc

•west side story! you’ve heard of this one. romeo and juliet, but nyc gangs. classic tragic love story with some damn good music.

•the sound of music! don’t watch the carrie underwood version lmao. takes place in 1930s austria. a young aspiring nun isn’t quite fit for the job, so her convent sends her to work as the governess for the seven children of a widower. cute love story, but also they flee from nazis. julie andrews is everything.

•seven brides for seven brothers! this isn’t quite as much of a true classic as much as those first two are, but it’s a personal favorite. a mountain man in 1850s oregon sets out to get a wife; when he successfully returns home, she realizes she’s meant to take care of his 6 uncivilized brothers, too. she whips them into shape, and eventually they all fall in love with 6 of HER friends. shenanigans ensue. questionable gender dynamics but w/e.

2. THE NEW CLASSICS–more recent shows that have established themselves as Important Musicals, may be more experimental or innovative, may just be super popular, either way ought to be remembered down the line

•wicked! a musical prequel to the wizard of oz that explores the relationship between the wicked witch of the west and glinda the good witch…as college roommates. crazy popular show, you might know “defying gravity” or “popular” already.

•rent! be prepared to cry and want to rage against society, dude. centers around a group of artists in new york city near the middle/end of the AIDS epidemic. about half the main characters are lgbtq, and about the same number live with HIV/AIDS. focuses on the artists trying to fight against gentrification and society while also dealing with personal struggles.

•fun home! a very recent show, won the best musical tony in 2015. explores the life of lesbian cartoonist alison bechdel (ever heard of the bechdel test? she inadvertently created it) through three perspectives: her as a young girl, a college student, and an adult reflecting on her life. follows her journey with regards to her sexuality as she grew up and her relationship with her father, a gay man who committed suicide when she was in college. so heartbreaking, so amazing. a personal favorite.

•in the heights! lin manuel miranda’s first show. it follows a close knit community of black and latinx people who all live on the same block in washington heignts. the plot focuses on how the community is rocked by 1. the revelation that one of them has won $96,000 in the lotto and 2. a massive blackout. super funny, super emotional, amazing music.

3. SHOWS THAT ARE JUST REALLY FUN

•hairspray! it takes place in the 1960s (super cute costumes/musical styles) and follows an overweight teenage girl named tracy turnblad who wants to dance on her local tv station’s after school teen dance program. it also addresses the racial struggles of the time as the black dancers fight for the tv station’s integration. super funny, really fun music, lovable characters.

•legally blonde! yes, there’s a musical adaptation of the movie, and i love it. you might know the plot; elle woods, a sorority girl from california, is dumped by her trust fund boyfriend who wants to find someone more “serious” at harvard law, so she decides to get into harvard law to prove her worth to him. along the way, she finds out she’s worth a lot more.

•the book of mormon! i’m not exaggerating when i say this is probably the funniest show i’ve ever seen/listened to. like, the music is laugh-out-loud hilarious. it was actually written by the dudes from south park, so there’s that. it’s about two young clueless mormon missionaries who get sent to uganda and have to try to spread the word of god while trying to fight back against a warlord. so. fucking. funny.

4. AMAZING SCORES–like, i don’t necessarily mean here that i love every single individual song, but if you like incredibly intricate music with beautifully recurring themes (like great comet), these you might like.

•les miserables! one of my personal all-time favorites. it takes place in the early nineteenth century in france, and it’s about this dude named jean valjean, who went to prison for years for stealing bread. he gets out and decides to basically remake his whole life. later, he becomes a successful factory owner and adopts the daughter of one of his former workers, then the daughter grows up and falls in love…there’s a lot going on. just watch the show.

•into the woods! you like fairy tales? well, here’s ALL of them mashed into one show. seriously, sondheim is sorta a crazy genius. it’s about a generic baker who, to lift a curse, has to get jack (and the beanstalk’s) cow, some of rapunzel’s hair, little red riding hood’s cape, cinderella’s shoe…a lot happens, yo.

•sweeney todd! sondheim again, and this one is pretty dark and crazy, lmao. a vengeful barber named sweeney todd starts cutting the throats of his clients, and his accomplice/friend/lover(?) mrs. lovett, who runs a pie shop, starts baking the clients into pies to help get rid of the evidence.

5. WEIRD SHIT–broadway can be weird and experimental, idk.

•spring awakening! based on a german play from the late 1800s, i believe. german farm teens discover the strange wonders of sex for the first time, accompanied by mid-2000s indie rock.

•avenue q! it’s like sesame street rated r. it’s all puppets, except the puppets swear and fuck and stuff. the music is catchy as hell, though.

•little shop of horrors! a classic, tbh. a mild-mannered nerd works in a flower store, comes across a weird-ass alien plant. the plant can talk and stuff. turns out the only thing that can satisfy it is human blood! lots of murder by plant. really funny, though.

6. PERSONAL FAVORITES–things that didn’t fit in any other category precisely but i still like, idk.

•newsies! there’s a movie with baby christian bale lmao, but the stage show is better. newsboys in 1899 go on strike when newspaper suppliers raise prices. VERY dancey. very catchy songs.

•falsettos! oh man, i love crying. a gay man, marvin, leaves his wife (and son, a bit) for his lover, and after everyone finally gets sick of his shit, is forced to reckon with his own maturity and problems. then, in the second act, more stuff happens, but i don’t want to spoil it. PLEASE listen to falsettos. it’s one of my favorites of all time.

•the last 5 years! this show actually has only 2 people in it. it tells the story of a relationship from both people’s perspectives. the thing is, her songs go from the end of their relationship backwards to the beginning, and his go chronologically from the beginning to the end, and they meet just once in the middle. it’s just songs going back and forth, and the songs are pretty wonderful.

•next to normal! it’s about a woman with severe mental health problems and her family trying to make it through as she struggles to find a treatment that will help keep her “balanced.” kinda heartbreaking, kinda wonderful, raises some fascinating questions about mental health and if treatment is right for everyone.

•heathers! you’ve already listened to it. i just love it so i’m gonna say it anyway.


this is, well, TONS of shows, so i think i’m good! happy listening!

I have like 0 doubt that Kent and Tater made out in the back of a club once to the muffled beat of Ariana Grande’s “Into You,” and the song is just unconsciously ingrained in the back of Tater’s head, and he just hums it whenever he has a game against the Aces

Falconer rookie: Hey are you humming Ariana Grande. My sister listens to it all the time haha
Tater: Yeah! Is Kenny and my song.
Falconer rookie: …okay.
Tater: Kenny dance really good to song. 
Falconer rookie: …….You don’t have to tell me–
Tater: We make out in club to this song.
Falconer rookie: I’m gonna go that way now

Drunken Karaoke

Summary: Fiona hosts a party to release some stress that was hanging over everyone. Frank brings a karaoke machine. Ian serenades Mickey and they resolve their issue.

Word Count: 888


It’s been a crazy week in the Gallagher household, and so much commotion calls for a crazy Gallagher-style party to bring the peace back. Fiona wants to settle everything and everyone down for a night, and just have some fun.

“V,” Fiona yells from her front porch when she sees her best friend standing outside of her own home. “What time are you coming over?”

“In a half hour,” V yells back. “We’ve got extra beer!”

Fiona smiles. “Sounds fucking great!”

Fiona didn’t even realize Mickey walking toward the house. “Hey, Mick.” He ignores her. “Mickey, please tell me you and Ian aren’t in another fucking fight. I want this night to be good,” she pouts. Instead of replying he just shrugs and makes his way up the stairs to the room he and Ian share. Fiona retrieve herself back to the kitchen with Debbie.

Seconds later, Ian comes stomping up the staircase. “Stop being a fucking asshole,” the girls hear Ian yell.

“You’re the asshole!” Mickey shoots back.

“Fuck you!”

“No, fuck you!” Then there is silence. Hopefully they haven’t killed each other, Fiona and Debbie think.

Debbie also really wants them to resolve their problems before the party starts because it’s been forever since the whole family had fun together. Everyone’s always so tense, a good night is way past due.

* * *

Lip gazes to room to see who’s in attendance. He sees Jimmy-Steve, V, Kev, Fiona, Mandy, Ian, Mickey, Carl, Debbie, and of course, Liam. He checks to make sure the youngest boy is far away from any drugs, and once he knows it’s clear, he turns to get himself a beer.

All of a sudden, an already wasted Frank stumbles in the house. “Children! I got a karaoke machine,” he laughs and holds it up. “Well I didn’t necessarily get it rather than take it. It’s an expensive little piece of machinery.”

“What are you doing here, Frank?” Carl shoots cold looks at his father.

“Heard there was a party,” he says with a cocky expression. “I never miss a party.”

Jimmy coughs. “Oh, don’t we know it.”

“Fuck off, Jimmy-Steve–if that’s even your real name.” Frank joins in on the party without any invitation. For some reason everyone silently agrees not to kick him out until he starts to cause harm.

Debbie scans the karaoke machine that Frank bought before turning to everyone in the room. “Might as well put this thing to good use!” Everyone laughs.

“C’mon, Lip,” Mandy pleads. “I wanna go first!”

“You sing,” he kisses her cheek. “I watch.” He then pushes her toward the microphone.

She clears her throat. “I will be singing a Work by Rihanna,” she announces.

“That song fucking sucks!”

“Do a different one!”

She rolls her eyes. “Listen, I’m too drunk to remember the words to a longer song.” Then she begins without warning.

It was a terrible few minutes. Mandy was so drunk she could barely stand, be when she finished she applauded herself and made her way off the stage.

Mandy notices Ian and Mickey’s tension, so she stumbles to her best friend and hands him the mic. “You’re up, fuckhead,” she smiles.

“Fine.” Everyone cheers and screams for Ian, other than Mickey who just shrugs.

Ian flips through the songs until he finds a perfect one. “I’ll be singing True Love by P!nk.” Everyone laughs and Ian notices Mickey let his guard down a little as he chuckles.

Sometimes I hate every single stupid word you say

Sometimes I wanna slap you in your whole face

There’s no one quite like you, you push all my buttons down

I know my life would suck without you

Mickey smirks and rolls his eyes as Ian sings. The songs goes on, and everyone is laughing. Both of their lives would suck if they didn’t have each other.

You’re the only love I’ve ever known

But I hate you, I really hate you

So much I think it must be

True love, true love

Mickey puts his face in his hands as Ian steps closer to him. At this point it’s a full on serenade.

Just once try to wrap your little brain around my feelings

Just once please try not to be so mean

Mickey’s face falls after hearing those lyrics. He never wants to hurt Ian– but at the same time, what the fuck? It’s a song, so he tries to ignore it.

Sometimes I wonder how we ever came to be

But without you I’m incomplete

I think it must be

True love, it must be true love

It must be true love

After a few more lyrics the song ends and everyone is cheering. “Ian, Ian, Ian,” they chant as he puts the mic back in its place.

Mickey steps to be in front of his boyfriend and pulls him down for a kiss. “You’re fucking ridiculous when you’re drunk, you know that?”

“‘You’re an asshole, but I love you,’” Ian quotes and laughing into his boyfriend’s mouth.

“I love you, Ian. Never forget it.” They sloppily make out in the corner of the room, completely oblivious the the groans and complaints coming from the others. They’re both way to wasted to notice.

Debbie shakes her head at the boys and looks to her older sister. “Guess they’re done fighting.”

anonymous asked:

Hey my dude! Can you pretty please do headcanons for MC being a music tutor for the boys and teaching them how to sing and play an instrument (specifically Saeyoung the trumpet or trombone and Saeran the flute or clarinet?)

Saeyoung:

-when you give him the trumpet he raises his hand straight into the air

-“…..yes, Saeyoung?”

-“is mayonnaise an instrument??”

-you want to take that trumpet right out of his hands and smack him down on the ground with it

-you almost quit right there and he has to beg you to actually treat him

-you should have known better mc

-he’s learned 16 languages, so he’s got a pretty good tongue. Saeyoung would be able to go through the lessons with ease

-what can I say, he’s a fast learner ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

-once he learns a few songs and he gets them down, you bet your ass he’s waking up the whole house at 3 in the morning

-his favorite song to blast is Take On Me by Aha

-you didn’t even teach him that

-he wants to learn saxophone next so he can see if it really does Woo all of the Ladies to his “Sex-o-pants”

Saeran:

-you wanted to do the clarinet, but you don’t think he’s ready for that yet

-you were right he gets so angry at his little flute that he almost breaks it

-little boy doesn’t have a lot of patience. Unlike Saeyoung, he’s a slow learner and needs a lot of time

-he gets really self conscious practicing in front of you and it doesn’t help that Saeyoung is rocking it with the trumpet

-I think he’ll have his own little private lessons by himself working on the sheet music you gave him, trying to master it so he can impress you next class

-really doesn’t like playing in front of anyone but you

-he’s actually doing a lot better than he thinks he is! He’s going pretty fast himself but keeps judging his abilities by his brothers so he thinks he’s doing horrible

-his favorite songs to play are slow and soothing songs

-doesn’t notice but when he actually plays everyone in the house tries to listen because when Saeran is focused he’s actually really good

-Saeyoung is asking to play duets always even though trumpet and flute don’t really go well together

-together you form the Choi Boy Band with the weirdest combination of instruments

-you can’t think of anything else that describes your weird trio

You guys! Andrew was just mentioned on a Danish radio show about musical theatre. One of the hosts is in muscial theatre himself and they were talking about their favorite singers. He says Andrew’s his fave (I know the feeling, dude) and they played I Believe. What followed litterally made me cry. Here’s my super fast translation of their exchange:

Host 1: That song is sung right where it hurts. The reason why he’s my favorite is because he… I’ve listened to him a lot, and when you hear him sing you think it sounds so easy. But then you try and sing along, and then you realize it’s anything but easy. To me, at least, he captures the musical genre and that style of singing while singing in a contemporary language. He’s a first class example of how to do it and make it sound good. And then when you see him - and I would encourage everyone to go look him up on youtube - you can’t tell that he’s trying when he sings this number. You can’t see as much as a vein in his throat. When I try to sing this, my whole body is one big vein, I’m sweating, trying to hit those notes. But when he does it, he makes it look and sound so easy..

Host 2: What an annoying guy.

Host 1: Very annoying.

You tricked me ...

Sebastian Smythe
Glee
Authors note: clearly still not over sebastian, grant is too attractive

I was walking around McKinley texting my boyfriend Sebastian Smythe. I know what your thinking “he’s gay!” “you’re dating the enemy” blah blah blah. My fellow glee clubbers don’t know about Sebastian and he swings both ways, apparently, but I’m his first girlfriend. We’ve been together for about 3 months and things are going great. We see each other as much as we can without anybody finding out and between both of our rehearsals, it helps that he’s captain of the warblers so if he has to cancel rehearsals or something he can, although i tell him not to. 

I head straight for glee club and sit in my usual spot at the back. 10 minutes goes by and I’m still texting Sebastian. The music stops and the room goes silent so I lift my head to see what’s going on. Everyone is staring at me. 

“what?” I say confused. Everyone sighs. 
“have you been listening at all? We need to come up with good songs to beat the warblers at sectionals… You were supposed to think of a song for the girls” I blush looking down. 
“sorry, I’ve been so busy” I say quietly. They all look at me disappointed. 
“come on we’re going to the auditorium, the warblers want to meet there” Blaine says. I perk up immediately. 
“The Warblers? why?” I say excitedly, grabbing my bag and chasing after everyone. 
“i don’t know, they said they had something to show us” Mercedes replies. I nod and think about why Sebastian hadn’t mentioned anything. 

When we get to the  auditorium the warblers are there, but Jeff is holding Sebastian by the arm on stage while the others sit down, he looks incredibly nervous. 

“sit down and watch the screen” Nick says pressing play on the remote. We do and stay silent watching. I look at Sebastian and he mouths ‘i’m sorry’ and i instantly get nervous. 

The video starts playing and I recognize it straight away as 2 nights ago when  Sebastian was helping me to perfect a dance routine for our sectionals. After finishing the dance I run up to him and he catches me and we kiss. Some of the glee club gasp. The video cuts to Sebastian and a couple of warblers sitting around. 

-video-
“do you really think you can do it?” Trent says. Sebastian smirks.
“yeah of course I can, one month I can date her get all the info for sectionals and then drop her, easy” 
-end-

My hand is pressed against my mouth in shock and my eyes are filled with tears. Sebastian was looking at me with tears lining his own face.The room is silent as I stand up and walk up to the stage heading straight for Sebastian. 

“THREE MONTHS! three months has been a lie” I yell not caring about the crowd and the tears pouring down my face. He tries to grab my hand but I yank it back folding my arms. 
“It hasn’t! The first week or two yeah but I really started to fall for you, I ended the bet months ago, I didn’t tell them a single thing you told me, I promise.” He begs. 
“I can’t believe I ever trusted you.You tricked me into falling in love with you”  i scream. 
“”love?” a mix of his hoarse whisper and some members of the glee clubs shouting. I turn to walk away but he grabs my hand. I pull it away and slap his face, the force is that hard that his head whips to the side. He doesn’t seem that bothered by it but I back away shocked with myself and run away. I get all the way outside and hear a mass amount of footsteps. It has gotten dark by now. I’m to angry to realize but I run out onto the road and see bright lights coming towards me but strong arms wrap around my waist at the last second and pull me back. 

I breath in out out quickly trying to calm down. I turn to my saviour and hug him.
“this is 100% real for me, I’m sorry it wasn’t in the beginning but you are everything to me, I love you too” He says holding me close. I hear gasps around me and smile pulling away. 

“I’m sorry I didn’t tell you guys… If I had told you, you wouldn’t have accepted it.” 
“no we wouldn’t have” Kurt interjects but laughs afterwards. I cuddle farther into Sebastian looking around at my friends.  

10 Tips For The IB: Non Academic

1. You are what you eat. 

Weight gain is an all too familiar battle for not only me, but many more students around the world. I’m sure there are periods of your time where you tend to eat more. Be it the time of the month, during a time of high stress or when you’re bored, either way - your hand is reaching for that bag of sweets and those sweets are soon in your mouth. Well, doing the IB is quite like being on a perpetual period, it’s painful, can be bloody and seems to last forever. To counteract the almost inevitable weight gain, make sure you know what you’re eating. Your body image is the last thing you want plaguing your mind. 

2. Fitness? Ain’t nobody got time for that. 

After a hard day of slogging off at school, fitness is right at the back of your mind. Working out at the gym sounds absolutely ridiculous after 7 hours of non-stop brain activity, and going on a run? Um, please. However, this tip really goes hand in hand with the one above. Working out actually leaves most people feeling more energised after the work out, than they were to start out with. Exercising is not limited to lifting weights and going on five mile runs. Find what works for you. Pilates, yoga, aqua jogging, spinning, whatever, just do it (pun intended.) You may be thinking “I hardly have enough time to sleep let alone work out.” 30 minutes out of 24 hours is just 2% of your day. TWO PERCENT. Think about it. 

3. Be selfish.

There are going to be many times when you will have to sacrifice socialising for schoolwork. You may feel as if you are letting your friends down but listen, you have the right to put your own self and your own future over others. These two years hold a significant amount of potential to shape the next few years of your life (maybe even the rest of your life) give them the importance that they require and deserve. Give yourself the importance that you require and deserve. 

4. Read outside of your English curriculum. 

Reading is good for the soul. As we grow older, we seemingly have less time to sit down and read a novel that we want to. Too often I find myself falling asleep with a book I’m assigned to read in my hands. Studying really does take the joy out of reading. I’m sure your childhood was filled with a love or appreciation for books. Reading engages your mind, broadens your understanding of the complexity of humans (not to mention your vocabulary) and can transport you to another world. Read whatever you want - cliche romance novels, your favourite childhood book, classic literature, a horror story that’ll make you shit your pants. Just read. 

5. Never deny yourself the joy of listening to music. 

If you’re in need of new songs go on 8tracks.com. They have tonnes of playlists made by very cool people (really, as cool as you could possibly get i suppose) who have insanely good music tastes. 

6. Your peers don’t care. 

Regardless of what pre-university curriculum you may be doing, high school seems like a fighting pit. As if you’re the losing gladiator in the colosseum filled by your onlooking peers. You may feel as if everyone is looking at you, just waiting for you to mess up so that they can laugh in your face. In all honesty, they are all just worrying about themselves. Your peers don’t care what you dress like, what kind of music you listen to, the pitch of your voice, the colour of your hair. They don’t care what you do. It is so hard internalising this but you must. 

7. Take ‘mental health’ days 

There will  times when things just get a bit too much. Take a day of school and just spend it on yourself. You will not miss out much in one day - you can always ask your friends what you missed anyways. Take this day to watch the movies you want to, eat the food you want to, paint your nails the colour you’ve been wanting to but have had no time for. Take your dog on a walk. Eat ice cream from a cone. Take this day to focus on you. It can get a bit draining otherwise. 

8. Respect your parents.

As a teenager, we often forget to respect our parents. We’re just far too busy to reply when they call, or answer their questions or give them a proper sentence that consists of more than just “fine” when they ask us how our days went. Your parents are your biggest supporters. They will stand by you when others wont. Respect them. 

9.  Make time for the little things. 

In two years, you will be at university, bogged down with even more work than you have now. Take time to see the beauty in your current surroundings. Savour your last few years of childhood. You will look back on this time and regret that you didn’t otherwise. 

10. Have faith in the process. 

You may loose motivation. You may feel it is too hard. You may want to quit and call it a night. Don’t give up. You must not. Have faith in the process, have faith in whatever you believe in: Jesus, Allah, Vishnu, Buddha, the universe, science, the law of attraction - whatever it is, have faith and trust the process.
