hearing what you want to hear

Actual dad David headcannon

Okay but David would probably start buying Max things he knows Max likes, especially after seeing what Max’s parents get him. David wants to let Max know he cares about the kids interests, be it whatever, no matter how silly or strange it might be.

Imagine David buying Max comic books of Max’s favorite super hero or something cause he know’s that’s what Max likes, and holy hell, “the kid deserves more than just a hoodie!” David has probably said on more than one occasion.

Hi! Harry's solo acoustic performance of TG captivates me every time I watch. Are there any differences that you noted musically between it and his LLS performance with the band? Anything of interest for my untrained ear? I don't know what to listen for. Or the live performances vs album? I just love all your analysis posts. I want to read all your thoughts on everything. Thank you. xx

Sorry about the delay. I went to listen to a few of them again.

In general, I much prefer hearing Two Ghosts performed live. I loved the album version when I first heard it, but there’s something warm and raw about hearing it live, something vulnerable about Harry’s inflections and imperfections. And that’s just on YouTube! Imagine being there in person!

Here’s the Late Late Show LA:

https://youtu.be/dLGsNnt3r9E

I think this is my favorite performance. It’s stripped down– one guitar, one voice. No band, no chorus, no percussion. Harry sings without reverb on his mic, a very naked sound. He sings the word “heartbeat” in a rushed whisper, at 1:00 and 2:08. He also sings “We don’t say what we really mean” (1:35) with a first inversion (a 6th interval above what it is in the album). At 2:17, he plays a very bluesy chord– a diminished 7th followed by a suspended 4th. It’s almost a jazzy chord sequence. Then he sings the “Ooos” (2:20) following the same bluesy harmonics. It’s beautiful– very 1970’s. George Harrison, Steely Dan, Harry Nilsson. Finally, the dramatic ho pauses for SIX seconds between HEART and BEAT (3:03 - 3:09).

Late Late Show London:

https://youtu.be/Qx61xsxSdpg

This set up is closer to the album, and may have the same number of instruments. Harry sings with reverb on the mic, and has a harmonizing chorus (mainly Claire and Sarah). I think Harry plays an acoustic electric guitar, perhaps a Martin 000 (unless it’s a 00 and he is tinier than I think!). What’s notable on this performance is the electric guitar that is improvising in the background– watching their fingerwork, I think it’s Mitch playing a Stratocaster-type (not exactly sure what kind) guitar. You can hear it at 1:24, 1:39, 2:43, 3:33, and 3:50-4:33. In fact, the end is extended for the electric guitar solo. I also like the “Haaaa” harmonization at 2:58— again using the diminished 7th to suspended 4th modulation that sounds nostalgic and sad.

Troubadour performance with Stevie Nicks:

https://youtu.be/xbJOfN0zEeM

I couldn’t hear the performance very well. It seems to me that Harry’s voice was more gruff and hoarse than his other performances, and he was flat on pitch a few times. However, it was the closest to a small, live, unmanipulated venue, and closest to what it might sound like if he were singing at home, for instance. Even though the quality wasn’t great, his musicianship and his heart really shone. I liked it.

How can we improve Asiavision?

I have come to the decision that I (Kat) will still run Asiavision in the fall. While I am holding off on making a new schedule and revised rules until Amerivision is underway, I would like your input! I am considering test-driving a new televote system, but beyond that - could the schedule be improved? Should I create or relax any regulations? Is there any aspect of Indian culture you’d like to see involved in New Delhi 2017: Passing The Torch? I want to hear from YOU! Send me a message, reply to this post, or send me an ask telling me what you want to see. I hope to hear from you <3

-Kat

I want to say the light is blinding
But I see it clear as day
I want to say the heat is scalding
But I can’t feel the burning
I want to say the air is choking
But my lungs keep working anyway
I know I’m dying
I feel it inside me
Or maybe the lack of it
I don’t want to be in pain
But I see her face everywhere I look
I hear her voice running through my head
Her laughs, her smiles
Ingrained in every thought
My sun, my fire, my whirlwind love
What I would give
to hear you say I love you
One more time
What I would give

Itaat/Questions

- Is it an echolalia thing to vocalize instrumental parts while singing along to songs? I always always do that and some people have said it’s a bit strange

Could be.

- Itaat: when you never know what to say during some conversations but always know exactly what you want to say when it’s too late? Like I know this happens to everyone but I feel like it happens to me a heck of a lot? 💚💊

Sounds like some sort of processing delay. It could be an autistic thing but also something else like ADHD.


- Can you be put in aba at 16?

I think yes.


-Is it an autistic thing to hear a cool accent (English for example) and after hearing a few lines you unintentionally start copying their accent? (Usually only with real people and not tv shows or movies though.) ((I’d assume its kinda echolocalia(?) from what others have shared but i dont know;; ))

I think so.


-itaat im really bad at depth perception irl? and i bump into things a lot? which i know is autistic but im really good at it in video games? like in this game i have to position a cannon to hit a water tower a specific distance away and i usually get it second or third try, and i used to be able to always get it first try 💎🔮

Could be but could be an another thing. Also video games and actual real life world things are different which could explain the difference.


- Okay so I’m a possible autistic and I was wondering if I should try and get diagnosed now because I’m currently 15 and I hear it’s harder to get diagnosed when your older -sarin

I guess you could if you are safe to do so and have the resources, for example money.

“oh so since ‘mansplaining’ is so bad i guess i’m just never allowed to have an intellectual discussion with a woman ever again???” if you cant have any sort of conversation with a woman where you DONT assume that you objectively know more than she does on a given topic or dismiss everything she says then yeah you should probably just. not talk to women. ever. just shut up completely

things you need to hear this exam season

- don’t beat yourself up for struggling even if you’re doing your best
- you are smart and capable so don’t let laziness stop you from achieving your potential
- stop self sabotaging. that tv show can wait. take a break but don’t become your own obstacle to success. get shit done first
- eating right, staying hydrated and sleeping well are non-negotiable. look after yourself
- grades do not define you so be kind to yourself. but do your best and work hard for what you want

When you’re depressed or sad, the worst thing to hear from someone you trust is ‘just get over it.’ So here’s what I want to tell you- your feelings are valid, you are allowed to feel whatever you want without someone belittling you or saying that you are crazy. If it was that easy to ‘just get over it’ we would. Hang in there and try your hardest to get through each day. Don’t give up hope that things will turn around. Because without hope, there’s just hopelessness.

Voice Ask Meme!

I think hearing people’s voices is really cool, but I haven’t found a voice meme I’m happy with, so I wanted to make my own! 

Here’s how the game is played: If you want to hear me do any of these, just send me the number(s) you want to hear and I’ll make an audio post! Include whatever specifics you’d like to hear me do in the ask - these are more guidelines than actual rules. Basically, it’s just like any other ask meme, only I speak the answers instead of typing them out!

1) Give an introduction! 

  • Put specifics in the ask

2) Read a poem!

  • Feel free to specify a poem in the ask

3) Read a passage from your favorite book or fanfiction. Alternatively, do a one-person-show of a scene from a movie or play. 

  • Feel free to suggest a passage or scene in the ask. If you want me to do a dramatic reading of Green Eggs and Ham, I will. 

4) Tell a joke. (Preferably a really bad one)

5) Tell a story from your childhood. 

  • Feel free to suggest a story in the ask, like asking me about the first time I did x, y, or z!

6) Tell me about the most exciting thing you’ve ever done or would like to do. 

7)  Tell two truths and a lie, so that people have to guess which is true. 

8) Give an instructions on how to preform a task of the asker’s choosing. 

  • Example: If the ask says “teach me how to dougie,” you must give vocal instructions on how to dougie. 

9) Can you record yourself speaking in different languages/accents?

10) Sing a song, if you dare!

  • Feel free to suggest a song in the ask! (If I don’t know the song, I might sing you something else instead, but I promise it will still be worth your while.)

Feel free to reblog so more people can play!

Characters: Dean x Reader

Warnings: angst adjacent, smut, dirty talk, LOTS of language

Word Count: 2.7k

A/N: I was looking through some REALLY old requests and I came across an idea from @jennalyncarrigan1230 from who knows how long ago. She pitched an idea that I have twisted and LOVE the outcome. I doubt she even remembers sending the ask, but her initial idea sparked this smutty goodness. This took on a life of its own. I haven’t wrote Dean smut or ANY smut in quite some time. This is officially DIRTY. Or at least by my standards it is. Hope you enjoy. ;) Italics & Bold indicate reader’s thoughts.  This has very little plot. Just the poor reader thinking her secret dirty thoughts about Dean only to have them be not so secret anymore.

Feedback Appreciated

Yo.

Hey! To all my brothers out there who have to deal with school’s skirt or just skirts and dysphoria.
You don’t look like a girl nor a butch lesbian. Do you remember the stereotype of Scottish people? With the kilt and all. They doesn’t look like girls, but manly men with traditions, and that’s how you look! A manly man.
Stay happy, stay safe!

“Okay, I quit. Ladybug’s mother likes me more than Ladybug does. How does that work?”

Walking back to her computer, Marinette snorted, wondering if that had anything to do with hearing her mom shout, “She’s AFK, dear,” earlier.

“Because she never has to talk to you, obviously.”

“Meouch. I assure you that your mother and I have had some lovely conversations.”

Marinette, who’d been a party to most of those conversations (which mostly consisted of her mother handing over blackmail material by the bucketload), hurried on, “Anyway, I’m sure you don’t want to hear all about my exciting trip to the bathroom, so—”

Right on queue, her channel partner said, “Wait, what kind of exciting are we talking about? Because—”

“The kind where I stubbed my toe on the cabinet,” she interrupted, choking down a laugh as she booted her character back up, “so hush.”

A rush of notifications from the livesteam chatters let her know that Chat had been ‘yowling like a horny cat’ and that they were glad she was back.

“Oh my god, you guys.”

Looks like Elle’s gonna win the prize,” Chat sang, either oblivious or uncaring of the way their supporters were slandering his name, “If there ever was a perfect couple, this one qualifies—”

“No.”

Fifteen different variations of, It’s true though! popped up on Marinette’s screen.

You two need to kiss!

“A-huh,” Marinette half-snorted and half-sighed. “If kitty-gamer over there ever wants to move his butt from New York to Paris, I’ll give it a thought.”

All her lines went dead silent, and what followed had to be the strangest silence in Marinette’s Let’s Play career.

“…What?”

Oh my god popped up in the chat window a couple of times, but other than that, no one said a peep.

What?

Chat cleared his throat.

“I, um… I am.”

One second for it to sink in, and then Marinette’s gut flipped inside-out.

“You’re… what?”

Chat cleared his throat again, and Marinette wondered how she could hear the blush. “Moving. To Paris.”

“…Oh.”

“Not! Of course! That we have to meet or anything if you don’t want to, but I’m not going to be online for like five days in like… two weeks.”

“Oh,” said Marinette, and sank her teeth into her suddenly tingling lips, face hot. “Well, h-how about that.”

‘How about that’ indeed, she thought as Chat laughed on the other side of the line. Three years of shooting down her friend’s ridiculous advances, and now, suddenly, she was faced with the idea that they might not be quite so ridiculous, and…

And, suddenly, all of her was a little warmer — and a little more eager — than she’d like to think about.

Urk.

“Aaaaaanyway,” she said in her very best Ladybug voice, “we’re burning airtime, people! Let’s move! I want this base conquered by sundown!”

“Yes’m!”

If this gets 50 notes I’ll tell you all how badly I pronounced torbjörn’s name when I first played overwatch.
