Capping these because this was Yunho during his finest hour. This was him during his Purple Line era and I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, g-ddamn that is one beautiful man. 

Perky smiles, perfect hair and shining eyes aside, this is also one of many hilarious YunJae moments. I’ll just refresh everyone’s memories:

JAEJOONG: And Yunho, mmm, Yunho is.. too much.

JUNSU: What do you mean? (camera zooms in on a speechless Yunho whose smile is frozen upon his face)

JAEJOONG: I think sometimes he doesn’t consider me as a male..

(JAEJOONG blushes, and the audience goes wild.)

YUNHO: (clearly at a loss at what to say but feels that he must say something anyway) Ah…. er….. ah…..

JUNSU: (jumping up to save the day as he always does) Aha, that was a dangerous remark you made!

YUNHO: (still obviously speechless and flustered, and is now repeating everything Junsu says) That was a dangerous remark you made.

JUNSU: (points at the audience gamely) Don’t go imagining things, now!

YUNHO: (mirrors Junsu)  Don’t go imagining things, now..

Just got my acorn press charms in!! So happy they got here just in time for Chibicon on Saturday (all tictail preorders will be shipping out Monday, keep an eye on your emails for tracking numbers :>! )

I had an anon asking before if these charms will be bigger than the Halloween ones I did. Yes, they’re a bit bigger since I moved from vograce (the less saturated charms with lariats) to acorn press (smaller acrylic border and super nice colors)!!

Welcome to Night Vale Booklist

A mix of fiction and nonfiction books connected to the themes and characters of Welcome to Night Vale:

  • Rebels on the Air: An Alternative History of Radio in America 
    • by Jesse Walker
    • “Using lively anecdotes drawn from firsthand interviews, Walker chronicles the story of the unsung heroes of American radio who, despite those barriers, carved out spaces for themselves in the spectrum, sometimes legally and sometimes not.”
  • What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions
    • by Randall Munroe
    • “Fans of xkcd ask Munroe a lot of strange questions. What if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90 percent the speed of light? How fast can you hit a speed bump while driving and live? If there was a robot apocalypse, how long would humanity last?”
  • A Series of Unfortunate Events
    • by Lemony Snicket
    • “A Series of Unfortunate Events…follows the turbulent lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire after their parents’ death in a fire. The children are placed in the custody of a murderous relative, Count Olaf, who attempts to steal their inheritance and, later, orchestrates numerous disasters with the help of his accomplices as the children attempt to flee their clutches.”
  • The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
    • by Douglas Adams
    • “The broad narrative follows the misadventures of the last surviving man, Arthur Dent, following the demolition of the planet Earth by a Vogon constructor fleet to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Dent is rescued from Earth’s destruction by Ford Prefect, a human-like alien writer for the eccentric, electronic travel guide The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by hitchhiking onto a passing spacecraft.”
  • Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch 
    • by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
    • “So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist …”
  • Project Beta: The Story of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO Myth
    • by Greg Bishop
    • “When he became convinced that the strange lights hovering over the labs and Kirtland Air Force Base signaled the vanguard of an extraterrestrial alien invasion, he began writing TV stations, newspapers, senators – and even President Reagan – to alert them… Air Force investigators paid him a visit, as did Bill Moore, author of the first book on the Roswell incident. Before long Moore…was tapped by a group of intelligence agents and a deal was struck: Moore was to keep tabs on Bennewitz while the Air Force ran a psychological profile and disinformation campaign on the unsuspecting physicist.”

kiss with a fist has been replaced by alone together due to the lyrics of the former being indicative of an abusive relationship. i apologize for including this song in these mixes. 

i’ll be alright:

January, 1933
Shadow Case File #21

The Shadow radio program originally ran for seventeen years, and its influence on modern pop culture is still unparalleled. During its long run, many actors would go on to play the role. But, it is Orson Welles and actor Brett Johnston that are still closely linked with The Shadow’s ominous and foreboding tones. 

When the show ended in 1954, it wasn’t quite the end for our hero’s thrilling audio adventures. Brett Johnston returned for a special album release of two new Shadow adventures in 1968. 

Thankfully, in our hectic streaming and cell phone addled age, The Shadow on radio can still be found via the internet, CDs, and audio downloads. 

All this proves, while the years may go on and on, you can’t keep a good hero down…..
