someone: wow i can’t believe kesha’s actually good now!
me, externally: haha, yeah, her new stuff is incredible
me, internally: her stuff has ALWAYS been incredible. just because her old stuff was more party and dance music and used autotune and was marketed towards teenage girls doesn’t change the fact that her lyrics have always been clever, heartwarming, and just plain fun. even if her old music wasn’t personally your cup of tea, you can’t pretend that she hasn’t always been a talented musician with a great voice – y’all talk like she didn’t release stripped-down versions of her old music with no autotune years ago, PROVING her voice is amazing. animal, cannibal and warrior had so many bops on them, so many uplifting party songs, and from the very beginning, she has been subverting and satirizing the drunken party girl image her label built up for her. and let’s not even get into the fact that she has a genius level iq, and is an all-around great person and has always been outspoken about human rights, and is an inspiration for abuse survivors everywhere, and,

My favorite headcannon is that Jack has an amazing singing voice and he doesnt even know it.
One day when they’re driving in the car, Bitty has his Sappiest Love Songs Ever playlist going, and Jack’s hitting every note in If I Ain’t Got You. By now Bitty knows Jack can sing, so he posts a video of Jack just going at it on his twitter. The offical Falcs account retweets it. Lin-Manuel Miranda retweets it. Bad Bob retweets it with a “He definitely got that one from his mother”. #WhatThePuckZimmermann is trending #1. The world absolutely loves that this big, quiet, awkward hockey bro also belts it out to sappy love songs on long drives, and Bitty is so proud they finally get to see a part of the real Jack.
Instead of supporting and listening to Melanie Martinez

This hurts. I wanted to be a voice actress when I was in middle/high school and June Foray was one of my inspirations. These characters from my childhood that I have here are only a couple of samples that she did in her long long career and my childhood was amazing because of her voices and the memories she has given me and a hundreds of other kids. RIP, beautiful lady. There will be no one like you at all. ❤️
florence has blessed me and now there are rosebushes growing around my house, I can hear the soft sound of the ocean washing against the shore in the distance and I could probably grow wings if I wanted to
