i guess they're really doing it

Oh my god, in last night’s Bob’s Burgers, Bob takes Gene to a laser light rock show at the planetarium (super important to Bob, because it was his favorite when he was a teenager, and this is the last night before they’re closing the exhibit because it’s old and no one goes anymore, also it’s Bob’s birthday), and Gene has no idea what he’s in for, but he gets pumped for it anyway ‘cause Bob’s so excited about it, and finally they get in there and they’re watching it, and Gene has a sensory overload and kinda starts freaking out ‘cause he can’t handle it, so Bob takes him out and they sit in the car for a bit.  Gene’s angry because Bob didn’t tell him it would be so loud and scary, so Bob offers to play the album for Gene at a normal volume, and Gene starts to enjoy it, so he reclines the seats, takes out the cigarette lighter, tells Gene to pretend it’s a laser, and starts drawing in the air, explaining the plot to him (it’s like a full on Pink Floyd or Rush-esque rock opera about a bunch of robot overlords telling rockers that they can’t play music anymore, and one Rebel rising against them).  Gene gets really into it and decides he wants to see the finale of the laser show (which Bob regards as a life-changing experience), so they sneak back into the planetarium (there’s no re-entry allowed) with a few tricks that parallel the story from the album, and watch the climax of the show together (Bob fashions some earplugs for Gene out of a napkin).  On the way home, Bob’s asking Gene how he liked it, and Gene says “I loved it!”, Bob asks him to speak louder ‘cause his ear’s are shot, and Gene yells, “I LOVED IT, DAD”.  Bob yells back “I love you too, Gene”.

I FUCKING!!! CAN’T!!! DEAL!!!! WITH HOW GOOD THIS SHOW IS!!! I know i don’t talk about Bob’s Burgers a lot but this show is flawless and charming and gross and funny all at the same time, the characters are written like people with actual fears and anxieties, and unlike a lot of comparable shows, the comedy doesn’t come from the family being pitted against each other, it’s always the family against the world… I love it, I love it, it’s so pure and refreshing and still somehow manages to be funny without sacrificing it’s heart, and I fuckin’ love it, please watch Bob’s Burgers holy CRAP okay I’m done.

a thought:

genji finds some old tamagotchis at like a flea market or something and buys them for nostalgia’s sake, has a little fun with them. but then zenyatta finds them and just absolutely falls in love with them, like he hears them beep and he’s like “what is it my child? do you require feeding? are you bored? do not worry i shall play with you.” and genji’s like “master, are you really interrupting your meditation for those silly toys?” and zenyatta just gives him the most offended look he can muster with his expressionless face and is like “do no speak of them like that genji they can hear you you are being RUDE”

“…don’t ever change.”
“I don’t exist…in anyone’s heart.”
“…what would it take for me to be like you?”

Loved, but lonely on an island in the sea.

ok but I need more fics where

  • it’s not obvious that it’s mutual
  • they’re not attached by the hip
  • none of their friends expected it honestly
  • one of them has a really rough day and for some reason all they want to do is cuddle the other person but they haven’t done that before?? but it feels like a thing they should be doing. 
  • one of them tries to cross a line they haven’t crossed before, like just something small. Hugging for a long time, a touch that lingers, a cute nickname. and it’s weird, right? and a little awkward? but it also feels really nice pls keep doing it. 
  • eventually they start acting more cuddly and close in private and it’s not that weird anymore. it’s actually really nice. but hey? does this mean I get to kiss you too or is that a line we don’t cross idk man. 
  • one of them calls the other one ‘babe’ in front of their friends and everyone’s like ???? what ????? 
  • and they eventually have to dicuss it bc this last month has not been like the last couple of years and we really need to talk. 
  • they have a really nice talk about it but now what? do we just kiss? do we go on a date? how do you do this? 
  • their first kiss is so awkward because they don’t know how to do this.
  • and at first their friends are very worried because what if it doesn’t work out? everything has changed? and of course they’re happy for them but it’s also so risky. 
  • and even though it’s a little awkward at first it does work out, because they actually fit pretty perfectly once they get the hang of it. 

So uh if you don’t share a certain headcanon, that’s fine. That’s why it’s a headcanon. Not everybody will share it.

But if you’re gonna tell somebody they can’t headcanon a character as ace or gay or bi because you personally don’t like it, and if you’re gonna attack somebody for that, that’s not fine.

decided do redo this piece i did (wow! ONLY) 2 months ago. couldn’t decide if i liked the shaded or unshaded version better so here’s both!!

what i don’t understand is like… where are all the galra women. like have we seen literally any galra girls please help me bc if we have i would love to know educate me i beg u

like i almost expected the Blade of Marmora to be entirely made up of girls or something (fooled once again by the shoulder-waist ratio ahaha kill me) and then Haggar wasn’t even Galra so like. where are they. I have a hard time accepting that the galra women aren’t part of the military at all because a) they’re GALRA and b) Allura went undercover as a galra soldier and no one batted an eyelash so WHERE THEY AT

Hey! I love your coffee and tea Dragons. They're adorable and I kind of want to cuddle them. I also wondered if you've done any hamlet drawings?

Thank you! I do have a Hamlet tag but it’s uhh pretty much just a couple of old drawings and reblogs of John Simm when he took on the role years ago so there’s really not much to see there. I’d love to add more to the tag in though!

anonymous asked:

What do you think Dan and Phil are actually doing? I don't think there's anything different going on? They're just being quiet and busy that's happened many times before...

This time around it’s different. The last time we had about a week long worth of silence (I guess but you get what I mean) was when they were in LA. That’s easy to depict as, clearly, they spent a day at the Fine Bros, a day with Cat, a day with Anthony, and easily a day by themselves because they love LA. 

But what we got going on here is different. Because A) they keep tweeting REALLY random and obscure things. They’re easily avoiding our questions, questions they would usually answer like “When is the next gaming video??” Which isn’t technically new, it’s just really weird considering they used to have a pretty developed uploading schedule, and then suddenly it’s tuesday and we don’t have any content? When they uploaded Dream Daddy on Thursday because Phil’s mum was in town for her birthday. They usually say when they’re going to upload on liveshow days beforehand.

But here’s the second clue to this mystery, WHY WERE THE LESTERS DOWN IN LONDON FOR A WEEK? Unless Kathryn is celebrating a milestone, or just love their kids and miss them, usually parents don’t stay for a whole week unless something is happening. 

Point C) how come they stayed with Martyn? They usually stayed with Dan and Phil didn’t they? Do they suddenly not have any room in their London Duplex? Yes. Because Phil isn’t going to have his parents sleep in that tiny box he calls a bedroom, and yet why was Phil feverishly cleaning it before they came over? Cool, parents are gonna look at your place (and I’m pretty sure they’ve seen it before earlier this year??) you can hide some things behind the couch and be cool, but Phil made sure the house was SPECIFICALLY PERFECTLY CLEAN. 

Also, DAN BEING NERVOUS IN FRONT OF THE LESTERS?? Boy you just went on a two week holiday with them in Florida, and have loved Mummy Lester since the beginning, there is NO WAY in hell that you are still nervous around them, SOMETHING IS UP. 

D) It’s been 5 months since That Week in March. And although it could easily have been something moving related, why would Dan make sure we remember it and to bring it up when the time comes?? 

I could go on, but they are being extremely sketchy. It’s almost eerie feeling, because we know something is up, and yet they’re being the masterminds they are and just waiting. Waiting for the right time, or the right signal, or for SOMETHING. They want our FULL attention for it, whatever it is. 

SO either their secret project is being released, or they moved again to their forever home, or they got married, whatever it is it’s SOMETHING.

Mel why aren't there more NHL!Bitty fics? I mean, boy made first line of a D1 team, as a freshman, went to the Frozen Four twice, and all this after a few years of co-ed hockey. (Now I want scouts at the games, and people making guesses they're there for everyone BUT Bitty.) But of course there's only ever one team he actually wants to play for. :D

anon i do not know i really don’t!!!!!!! we gotta Remedy This but first we’re remedying it with some hcs bc i am SWAMPED with fics to write but like…. if anyone wants to write some nhl!bitty fics……. and like tag me……. that would be amazing

  • oooooookay so let’s establish that there are a lot of teammates in bitty’s year. we don’t KNOW any of them, but they’re there, trust me
  • so scouts start coming in bitty’s 4th year and there’s a whole POOL of people who they might be coming for so nobody knows (although everyone has their own opinions about who they’re there for)
  • samwell is going p far, they get to the frozen four and i have no idea whether they win or not idk not relevant rn BUT THEY GET TO THE FROZEN FOUR
  • i cannot decide if i think bitty would be captain or not? like he’d be a great captain but i could also see him not getting it, idk it depends. let’s compromise and say he’s an a and there’s a captain who is not him? but he gets a dolled up jersey so that’s fun
  • aNYWAY. most people think that the scouts are either there for the as-of-yet-unnamed captain or for chowder (who is pro material fight me) a year early (i don’t know how these things work but i’m pretty sure that’s possible)
  • aaaand maybe one of the scouts is there for the captain but like? most of them are there for bitty?
  • and a lot of the team is like ‘I KNEW IT’ or well, they didn’t but they’re not really surprised bc bitty is really good even though nobody (including him) has really envisioned him going pro after graduation

somethin i find really weird on this hell site is the e-assumption that if ur a solo ___ stan of 1 of the boys , ur obligated 2 still care abut the others 2 the same extent and no offence but…… i no longer do jdslfnljknflskdjnfsdfjn like nothin against the other 4 i’ll always be nostalgic 4 1d but i genuinely do not have any major interest in their solo careers/lives so i don’t see why some of y’all expect e-ppls 2 still have that ot4/ot5 mentality til this day

What if they were being paid to do the anime?

Kind of like actors, but not exactly? Like… they get paid to be cartoon characters? Which would explain why they never feel the need to get jobs, because they’re literally being payed to remain unemployed losers?? 😂

It’s just a fun little idea I was playing around with. :0c I might draw some more later, if I can figure out how to articulate it better… 😅

New seasons = new content which is great and all but it also means the klancers come out full force trying to turn every interaction into something romantic and I’m just so tired

mikkel & another new oc, mo. i’m still not super sure who these kids are but one answer is definitely: not as cool as they think they are.

anonymous asked:

Hi! This is probably going to sound a bit weird, but I always really love how you explain music like there's a science to it - with all these musical terms and cadences etc and how they're built up like other songs/reminiscent of other songs, and I can't help but wonder if you think that the boys are aware of those things when they make music nowadays? Like - is that musical theory something you think they've learned and put into practice on purpose? Or do they have people/engineers who do that?

Hi!

I can only guess, but here’s a few considerations.

First, from listening to podcasts, I have the sense that some songwriters know music theory much better than others. Even people who have a degree in songwriting do not always know theory, or how to play an instrument, or how to read music.

For instance, sometimes guitar players read tabs or fake books (not the copyrighted or standard versions of songs) instead of music written out on a staff. You can find tabs on all the top pop songs for free on the internet (just search “guitar tabs”). You don’t have to understand anything about theory to write a song copying these chord progressions, because most of them are fairly standard.

So if you look up “Beatles Blackbird,” and just copy the chords out, change the melody a bit– voila! You have a new song with old harmonies.

Sometimes songwriters are inspired by certain instrumental “stems”– these are instrumental parts that are available to be purchased or borrowed. You can buy bass lines, percussion, synth bass, etc.

Usually a song has four stems: bass, melody, percussion, and voice. Any one of these can inspire a song. Artists can lend stems to one another if they think someone might be able to use it. So inspiration might come in different forms, depending on what element cane first.

There are songwriters who are immersed in theory (Fleet Foxes, Radiohead) who write idiosyncratic harmonies– sometimes it’s hard even to break it down! Brian Wilson, of The Beach Boys, and Lennon/ McCartney were also writers who wrote very adventurous, strange harmonies. They sound normal to us now, because we’re used to them, but “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” is a strange song, “Penny Lane,” “Across the Universe,” so many others, are very weird songs. They don’t follow the “normal” harmonic progressions of songs we hear from the 1950’s or 1960’s. They went out on a limb.

You can see why Harry loves Lennon/ McCartney. He’s a kid who likes eclectic music. He likes jazzy 7th chords, major-minor key alterations, syncopated rhythms (2’s against 3’s), subtle key modulations. These are all things that were happening in the ‘60’s and '70’s, because jazz-blues-rock-folk musicians all worked across genres then, and people experimented so much.

That’s why I think Harry knows music theory, to some extent. Maybe he doesn’t know the exact terminology for certain things like cadences etc., but he knows which songs he likes, and why. He knows harmonic progressions and chord progressions. He’s learned to play guitar so he can play these sounds out and listen to them. He’s a real musician, and it’s really cool.

A while ago, Louis tweeted that he liked Julia Michaels’ “Issues,” and Harry put this song on his BBCR1 playlist.

There’s a lot of similarities between “Issues” and BTY. The way that the verse has one meaning, and the chorus reverses the meaning (“I got issues, and one of them is how bad I need you”). The other is the syncopation of the words against synthesized sounds– they fill in every space, but don’t overlap much, so everything sounds lean and spare.

I think Louis pays attention to rhythm, a lot more than Harry does. “No Control” has masterful control of rhythm– the beginning of the song is so so so good. “Strong” and “Just Hold On” are both songs with such great use of syncopation.

So I think they are both learning a lot about the theories of songwriting, and both are paying attention to the best songwriters around.

Here’s another thing I love about their songwriting. They don’t copy what other people are doing. I mean, to some extent they follow the same formats, but they have their own signature. They don’t try to copy whatever is the top song of the moment. I love that they trust their own ears, and write their own words!! They’re real musicians!

I just got unfollowed by a mutual because I reblogged a post saying I supported poly ppl and that poly ppl are valid and they made their own post quoting it with the tag "y'all really wanna be oppressed and pretend polyamory isn't made to control women" like... nothing in the post said poly ppl are oppressed just that they're valid and I didn't even wanna touch the second part. It really bothered me and I guess I've just been looking for an excuse to unfollow them so that was the silver lining.

Sorry to vent at you, I just… I’ve been thinking about it all night now and it just bothers me how people will go out of their way to be rude when there’s really nothing to be rude about ya know? Like how is it offensive to say I support ppl who ID as poly? Or that they are valid if they do? I’m sure polyamory has been used to control women at some point in history, but that doesn’t make ppl who ID as that any less valid right?

I think your former mutual, is mistaking polyamory for bigamy (or possibly even swinging), or just has a very skewed view of what polyamory actually is and is looking at it through the socialized norm of monogamy, which lets face it, is an institution which has been used to oppress women since ooooh, a very long time indeed. 

So if that is indeed their way of thinking: monogamy is a toxic societal trend with no place in a a moral society that aims to treat women equally. (I am not saying that it is, merely that if I follow through on their argument this is the only logical conclusion I can come to.)

I wouldn’t let it bother you too much. They are clearly coming at it from a perspective by someone who has been hurt, either by a cheater claiming to be poly, or from another bad experience. But it’s not your place to try and make them believe that poly can be and often is just a healthy as most monogamous relations, if not often more so because of the emphasis on clear and honest communication needed in order to sustain something like polyamory, which sounds ridiculous because that should also be an emphasized feature of monogamy—and sometimes it is!—but speaking as a female in a monogamous relationship with a male, the advice I usually get from other women in similar circumstances is wholly toxic, with emphasis on passive communication and a seeming resignation that their frustrations have no good outcome because that’s just the way men are. Which is some heteronormative bullshit.

Oh sure you’ll always have the manipulative fucker who claims men aren’t men to be with one partner and use it as an excuse to cheat, and I am sure polyamory has proved useful to their argument. But then what they are doing isn’t polyamory as polyamory comes from a mutual agreement that hey, I would like to have relations with more than one person, you would like to have relations with more than one person, lets be rational about this and talk about it and do this thing together, or not! As the case may be :)

So yea…I’d say sorry for the lost mutual, but it seems like their opinion wasn’t worth having in the first place, so enjoy your new slightly less toxic dash I guess?

*whispering* you don’t have to do this. you can turn around now and confess your sins and hope they just sentence you to community service or something
