maybe you meant to type lovely in the tags, but he does sound a bit lonely doesn't he?
No, I meant lonely, and it’s just my observation. I could be totally off.
I feel like Harry’s a very shrewd observer of people, and also an extroverted introvert.
Obviously he’s clever and entertaining when he’s out there telling jokes, performing, sassying muscle men and dads and older couples and charming little kids. And of course we see the public Harry at events and parties who’s a cute, cuddly drunk, who could make an impromptu 20-second video that’s better than anything a Hollywood video director could produce, just by being himself. He’s an endless source of fascination for everyone, really.
But there’s a lot of deflection, subterfuge, indirect reference in his interviews. The fact that he says the person he wrote Sweet Creature for may or may not know it’s about them means he’s never discussed it with them (if you believe Harry). The song comes from direct, personal feelings deepened and purified over time, until they were distilled into three-and-half-minutes of music. It’s the purest way a musician can write a confession. And it’s all interior.
Listen to the lyrics of SOTT, ESNY, Sweet Creature. There aren’t a lot of words. They are simple, direct, and repeated over and over. The harmonies are simple and repeated over and over too. The man knows what he wants to say.
I loved this interview so much because Zach Sang focused on Harry’s creative process, but was respectful of his private space (he seemed to sense where Harry’s do-not-cross tape was). Harry again talked about vulnerability, as if before this, he wasn’t allowed to express it. He also talked about an appreciation for the length of time he had to work on the solo album, and the people who allowed him his voice and vulnerability. The interview showed that all of these songs, feelings, thoughts had been there for a long, long time, but were kept private.
I don’t mean to imply that loneliness is a bad thing. Harry is a songwriter. Suffering, meditation, conflict, interior monologues all make for excellent art. The visual art that he collects and admires has these qualities too– of beauty and courage burnished through loneliness and suffering.
This observation struck me, too, when he was talking about his touring venues– that he has seen some of his favorite shows in these small, intimate, historical, acoustically perfect places.
First, he must have, at some point, thought it would be really cool to play these venues.
Second, he was going to feel less alone with a smaller audience– he was going to be able to convey an intimacy in a setting like that. It wouldn’t be to play to 100,000 anonymous screaming fans. It would be to play for his friends, he said. And he would play– basically the story of his life, to people who held on to his every word. I’d like to think that some of these friends might be the musical giants of history, watching him from above, the very people he venerates.
I figured out ((like the genius I am)) how easy it is so take interior pictures without your mayor, and decided to show my entire house <3 Newest additions include a frilly guest bedroom, and a sewing room in the basement. I love designing interiors so much, but still haven’t gone over to the dark side of HHD. I think I would get lost.
Heyho Maddox! So I need advice. I'm a 12 year old artist. Everyone in school refer me as a "young artist" and I love drawing. It's my passion. But, my parents aren't supporting me and tend to get mad at me everytime I want to draw. They want me to stop and be a doctor but I don't want to. I want to be a successful artist like you. Help please?
My parents didn’t really supported me being an artist till I was 18 (when I decided to do art for good). But I understand why they push us to do something else besides art. Theyworry and they know its an unstable/unpredictable job.
You are also really young at the moment. When I was your age, I wanted to be a Fashion Designer or a Veterinarian but ended up doing Animation because believe me when I say ART is just a general term of so many other specialisations that you have to consider.
Its just like if you wanna be a doctor, what kind of doctor you wanna be. Same applied with art, what kind of art based job you wanna pursue? I am currently studying animation but I like illustration very much. And there are a lot more like graphic design, interior design, fashion design, comic artist, and etc. So you do need to do more research and put more thought on what you really want focus on for art.
I will also be very real with you since you are considering this as your future and job. Art is something you really need to love and have 100% passion in doing because there are a lot of factors like rejections, criticisms and conflicts that may make you feel like shit.
If you are very sure if you are gonna give art your all, then go for it. Convince your parents in every way possible because thats ONE of the few conflicts that you need to over come. Its like an endless battle when it comes to the creative industry. Do what you strongly believe in.
Everyone needs to listen to that Smallzy interview with Niall. Smallzy makes a slightly homophobic joke about Niall not looking like someone “into interior design” (he’s at Niall’s house and commenting on how beautiful the interior is) and Niall is like, nah, man I love it.
Then Smallzy is asking Niall about what to do on Valentine’s Day, how to act with women, and Niall is all, dude, all women are different, play it by ear.
I love Niall so much! And I’m so impressed that he isn’t just going along with that stuff and being a bro.
Okay but can’t we just talk how BEAUTIFUL Xayah and Rakan are together?
Every interaction between them is GOLD. They joke around, care about each other, compliment each other, declare their love, say badass phrases, and they even talk about marriage, or how they feel/would feel without the other.
And not to talk about their design, which is stunning… And their shared recall is just too adorable.
About the voices, I’ve heard complaints, and I myself was surprised when I saw that Rakan talked like that, because I was expecting more like sensual talking and so on… But it was a pleasant surprise because it actually made me laugh and appreciate all the more when he sounds serious around Xayah, and then I realized he probably has to sound loud and somewhat annoying to act as a better diversion so that Xayah can do her job.
To be honest, at first I thought Rakan was going to be pretty much like just charming, sensual and flirty 24/7, and with a velvety voice even when he dies… And then I got this loud, adorable dork with bad memory who can be sexy at the same time, and that is sooo in love with his girl and that would defend her to death without a doubt.
My first thoughts about Xayah was that she would probably be an intelligent, badass and serious warrior that would be “hard on the exterior, soft on the interior” (aka “tsundere”), and that she would probably let love words for intimacy or something, just not saying it out loud, or even being like “just leave the love words for later”… But instead, I got an intelligent, badass warrior that is deep in love with her beautiful dork and doesn’t give a fuck about saying it out loud (she even BRAGS about him) and just gets carried away sometimes by his enthusiasm (like, for example, when he started humming a song and she eventually followed him).
And they worry so much about each other… <3
They’re, literally, LOVEBIRDS. Epic, deadly, beautiful lovebirds. Oh, and… that “I love you” / “I know” interaction… 100/10.
I just love them and ship them so much… They’re perfect to me <3
Harry was listening to Savie only around 50% as he sat in the booth overlooking the busy London traffic as the rain fell rather heavily outside. Under normal circumstances, Harry would have been an ideal listener to his and your mutual friend, but as she continued to talk on, Harry slowly started to zone her out.
But it was for good reason as he waited once your dark blue car pulled up across the street, parallel parking before he watched as you struggled with your umbrella inside the car before opening your door and letting it out. You clutched your jacket around yourself as you looked both ways before crossing the street and then jogged over to the cafe where Harry and his friends were sitting.
He got up from the booth, mid-sentence from Savie, and opened the door for you as you bustled in. You’d come straight from work, just as Savie had, but you definitely looked more stressed than she did.
“Hey,” Harry chcukled, taking your monstrosity of an umbrella from your hands as you attempted to fix your hair and get it out of your face.
You stopped for a moment, looking up at and smiling through your windblown mess of a mop of hair as you couldn’t hold back the smile. Harry’s eyes crinkled in happy acknowledgement as he leaned down and pressed his lips to yours briefly.
“Hi,” you greeted back, biting your lip as you admired his adoring face.
“Ugh,” Savie groaned, breaking whatever cute moment you and Harry had planned to let linger. You poked your head from around Harry’s broad body and waved to Savie.

I know I’ve posted pictures of this lot a million times, but I really love it and I don’t know what in the world possessed me to banish it to a university subhood. I’m going to update the landscaping a bit and then I’m 100% moving it to the main hood.
