so the vmas were tonight and i watched it to support fall out boy and a couple other artists i liked. and there were a HUGE number of issues i had with this years vmas:
firstly, WHY DOES EVERYONE HATE ROCK SO MUCH??? during the chester bennington eulogy, jared leto asked the crowd to stand up in honor of chester and anyone who was struggling with the difficulties that he was going through. AND NO ONE STOOD UP. SO JARED HAD TO ASK TWICE. THIS WAS A MEMORIAL FOR ONE OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN ROCK AND POP-PUNK. IT WAS RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL. ALSO, THEY PUT A FUCKING AD RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE EULOGY. THAT LEGEND DID NOT DESERVE THAT LEVEL OF DISRESPECT. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHETHER YOU LIKED LINKIN PARK OR NOT; CHESTER BENNINGTON WAS A GENIUS AND WAS A LIFE LOST TOO EARLY.
furthermore, to top it all off, they never even mentioned the Best Rock Video category. why have it if you won’t even acknowledge it?????
!! this next part is not for members of the clique that get angry easily. i love twenty one pilots too. i have a whole other blog dedicated to them. this is just my personal opinion. !!
ok, so both top and fob were nominated for Best Rock Video (top for heavydirtysoul and fob for Young & Menace), and SURPRISE, SURPRISE! twenty one pilots won. this angers me so much, it’s not even funny. here’s why:
• top is on hiatus right now. they’re not even active. no new singles, no album, no interviews, no nothing.
• fob on the other hand is going on tour, releasing music, doing interviews, doing radio shows, doing promo, etc.
• top didn’t even show up. neither tyler nor josh showed up. they didn’t say anything about the award at all, and [as of right now] they haven’t thanked their fans for the award. they never acknowledged it.
• fob went to the vmas, hyped up the award, pete presented, they thanked their fans, they brought the llamas, they attended the red carpet, THEY BROUGHT THE LLAMAS.
• top’s music video didn’t even have a meaning. it was literally just “tYjO dEfEaTeD bLuRrYfAcE!!1!!!1!”
• fob’s music video spoke volumes about abuse.
• heavydirtysoul (the song) came out 2015.
• young & menace came out 2017.
AND NOW. THE #1 REASON I AM ANGRY THAT TOP WON INSTEAD OF FOB: top has won the same amount of awards that fob won in TWO YEARS that fob won in 16 YEARS. most of which, were won for the pure fact that most of the clique just mindlessly voted for top, regardless of whether or not they deserved it.
again, i am a huge fan of both bands, but i HIGH KEY feel that Fall Out Boy DESERVED that award (if it was not apparent in my rant).
Y'all Ethan’s content lately is so on point! I absolutely love to see how on fire and energetic his videos are lately. I watch YouTube to help stay happy and get good creative energy flowing so watching Ethan has helped so much! And the editing! Y'all, it’s been so good! Especially the recent videos like Mutant Football and Drunk Side of the Moon. They have me laughing through the entire thing. Even after the shitstorm of October and how busy he is, Ethan’s not only posting 2 videos a day, but he’s super active on social media and busy with traveling all over the place for holidays and tours. I JUST REALLY LOVE HIM AND HIS VIDEOS AND REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE WORK HE DOES FOR US AND HOW HE IS SO FUNNY AND REAL, OK?!
okay listen since the beginning of 2017 i’ve been sensing something really different about dnp and it’s been strangely just .. open. they seem more open to their audience and are allowing us to see more of their lives and it’s adorable ok. shameless flirting left and right i don’t think i’ve ever third wheeled this hard . they’re so much more touchy on camera and have included many things and aspects in their videos that most likely would’ve been cut a few years ago and it’s so endearing that they’d trust us and just continue doing what their doing and having no shame in showing the public how much love and adoration and respect they have for each other. most internet friendships don’t last very long but look at dnp over here defying the odds. very soon it’ll be 10 YEARS of dan and phil together and creating content with each other. you’re gonna come here and tell me that it’ll be 10 years of them being together almost all the time and they’re not in love? i hear all this talk about how they’re best friends so it should be okay blah blah i understand HOWEVER how many best guy friends do you see acting as loving as dan and phil?
tl;dr / dnp are in love and it’s making me emotional
anyone who has spent five seconds around me ever:
yes, you love robert, we know, you love robert small so much, he's the light of your life, you love him so much, you just love robert, we KNOW , you love robert you fucking love robert ok we know, we get it, YOU LOVE ROBERT. WE GET IT.
Ok but I love the I’m Not Okay music video? Like, so much? I just see the ‘Rated R for Revenge’ and I’m just grinning and the bit between Ray and Gerard at the start and the 'if you ever felt…’ and 'prepare to feel Revenge’ 'feel the romance’ and the my ______ romance and then it starts flicking through them until it gets to My Chemical Romance with that bit of guitar in the background and the guys about to fight these people with croquet mallets and just everything?
This song is honestly such a huge deal to me. It’s the first MCR song I ever heard, at age six, and I think that’s a part of it, but seven years on there’s something about the song which is just yelling that you aren’t okay, and that you aren’t alone and I’m just like 'fuck yeah I’m not o-fucking-kay’ and god I love so may bands, but I love them all in different ways and nothing will make me feel the way MCR does and nothing will make me smile the way I do when I hear that riff at the start and see that bright green rating thing where they misspelled guardian and at the end where the guitar is fading out and they put Frank Lero in the credits. Did I mention I love MCR?
Ok i love this man too much and that song just broke my heart? I’m so impressed by Thomas, Joan and AJ and how amazing they’re able to convert their hardships into AMAZING WORK!!?? LIKE HOW?? PLEASE TELL???
Anyway, I couldn’t wait to draw this, so much so that I literally drew this 20 minutes after the video came out;; I just;;; i love them too much;;
can't wait to hear you thoughts on dream daddy leela <333
hihihihi ifjsodifsdf well you’ve probably heard wayyy more of my thoughts on this vid than u bargained for but here’s one last post of things i loved in particular. as i said in so many previous ask responses, i found dnp’s demeanor in this to be so lovely and natural and enthusiastic. they were perhaps less outwardly energetic but to me that just felt like a product of their being reasonably immersed and into the game itself and all the reading that comes with it. i loved so many bits and to make it a little easier i decided to break them up by person. i also did this bc of the volume of people who were concerned about phil being ‘off’ or seeming disinterested or irritated or any number of negative things. i just kind of wanted to make a point of the fact that so many of my fav moments were actually little things from phil as opposed to dan. also i should say ,, shout out to this game itself bc i’m genuinely loving watching it unfold. i’ve not seen any part of the game before so i had no idea what to expect. i wasn’t prepared for how uplifting the concept would be and how interesting all the characters are and i’m genuinely so excited for the next episode not jst bc it’s dan and phil content and i want to watch them play, but bc i just simply want to know what happens next!!!!!!!! so with that being said here are some of my fav moments of the vid, just a small selection of the reasons why i really adored the video overall <3
Ok Emma, the parallels of the jho couple to hl are just astounding!! 1. Green-blue jackets 2. Green is taller than blue 3. They meet in london and hit it off at once 4. Blue wears a snapback and green wears a fedora 5. Blue drives the car (like louis always does in their 1d mvs) i'm not sure if that's all it is. Just compiled observations from my dash. This video makes me so happy.
