there’s a really important difference between “I love this villainous evil character because they make the story way more interesting but I recognise that they’re a terrible person who deserves to be dropkicked into the sun” and “I love this villainous evil character and I will defend them with my life they are a precious sinnamon roll here’s 10,000 words of meta about why their behaviour is justified here’s 8000 angsty headcanons about how they’re secretly insecure and probably abused here’s my dubious justification for why they deserve a completely unearned redemption arc even though they’ve shown zero remorse or desire to change at all yes I know they gleefully murdered a bunch of people but if you look really closely at this screenshot you’ll see their dad didn’t give them enough attention as a child so actually they’re the real victim here” 


I got really excited about old man Corvo today

Okay, fudge it, just take this work in progress (that I won’t finish it anyway) ww

Also, if he has a name... it would be: chokomin
or something along the line.....

Let's play! I have so many I'm curious about so I hope you don't mind a few non kpop artists. The most important one, though, is the singer of my favorite song of all time, Otis Redding (Try a Little Tenderness: watch?v=UnPMoAb4y8U). But if you're wanting to stretch your writing muscles, here are a few more random artists, pick and choose at will: Bloc Party (watch?v=Q3EEaPj-5qs), George Cosby (watch?v=lL3nGwh6Cqg), Róisín Murphy (watch?v=ZwzTDTpU5kQ), Bing Crosby (watch?v=t_32W7Touso)

Hello!  I will definitely do not kpop things.  A lot of my listening is in mand pop and k pop (and recently I started listening to some Kazakh pop too), and there’s a slew of reasons for that, but I like a lot of other music too.  I went to a big folk music festival recently (which I go to every year) and I love a lot of what gets played there.  I like a lot of classical music and traditional music (especially a lot of woodwinds heavy stuff and a lot of traditional/classical Chinese music).  I even listen to music in English sometimes.  One of the big issues that I sometimes have is understanding the lyrics too well though (it means that I avoid random listening to English and French language music a lot because I don’t have to think to understand the lyrics, and that doesn’t always make for a happy Etienne).

That being said… I am going to go ahead and do these.

1) Otis Redding (”Try a Little Tenderness”) 

(I usually think of Otis Redding in the context of “A Change is Gonna Come.”)  His voice tastes of cinnamon and molasses and candied orange peels with a little bit of good smokey whiskey (bourbon) and a subtle oatmeal base.  It’s a good voice.  The section in the end of the song is heavier on the orange and bourbon notes.

2) Bloc Party (”Ratchet”) 

This is… not my flavor of music.  It does the guitar shift thing that tastes (and feels because the less commonly set off synesthesia likes to get in on this) sand.  It’s also kind of sticky sour-sweet tasting music.  The vocalists don’t have terribly flavorful voices one way or another, sort of… dried rolled oats mostly.  However, the one who seems to be doing most of the singing has a slightly astringent undertone to his voice (a bit like Darjeeling, which many people love, and is not the tea for me).  So, nothing too interesting, but not for me.

3) George Cosby (”State of Undress”) 

OK, I like the flavor of his voice.  His base vocal flavor is of a dark rye bread with honey and tiny hints of licorice and cloves.  There are notes of a dark malty tea (like an Assam), and on the higher/clearer notes occasionally there are notes of fresh pears (taylor golds, slightly overripe when they’re sweet and dripping but still delicious).

4)  Róisín Murphy (”Ruby Blue“)

This also has the off pitch/filtered instrumentation of SAND to the mouth.  I almost backed out of listening to the song in the first 5 seconds due to sand.  Vocally, this also isn’t one of my favorites.  The vocalist has a coffee voice.  I hate coffee (it makes me ill), and while there are some interesting spices in there (nutmeg, anise), pretty much not much is going to save a voice from coffee for me.  (Basically, I am a bad judge of this singer because not my flavor and instrumentation of SAND.)

5) Bing Crosby (”Young at Heart”) 

I must admit that I came into this already not having terribly fond feelings towards Crosby, but I’m trying to focus on the song that you picked itself.  I hat to go find a different link because youtube didn’t want me to actually be able to look at the video on that one.  Crosby’s voice tastes of chocolate and whipped cream with too much vanilla in it.  (These are flavors that I range from not particularly liking to really not liking, and I know that a lot of people do like them.)  There are some undertones of caramel and dried apples and a tiny bit of sweet salty combination, but it’s not enough to rescue the voice for me personally.  I can tell why a lot of other people like it though.

Thank you for sending me some of these!

I feel like Young and Menace is a little mesh of 90s grunge and new age electric/edm ishhh??? and I just kinda love it???

merpancake replied to your post: My carrot and ginger soup (which is my favourite…

Hmmm so any chance I could snag the recipe from you?

I don’t have a recipe so I’m gonna wing it:

What you need:

Soup pot (large pot for lots of soup, small pot for…smaller amounts).
Stick blender

Carrots (like a kilo or kilo and a half)
Onions - you only need one. I use three though.
Ginger (fresh is best) - I use about two-three teaspoons, but if you’re just starting out, add one and adjust.
Garlic (fresh also good) - I use genuinely about 15 cloves, you do not need this many. Five is a good start, lol.
Rosemary (fresh good, dry works) - add at end to taste.
Stock cubes - I use vegetarian beef lol, because I was taught how to make this by a vegetarian, you can use whatever you like. I use 2. 1 is enough. A lot of this soup is ‘adding based on what tastes good’ so it’s better to add more at the end than too much at the beginning. You could add liquid stock in place of water.

Other root vegetables are pretty tasty in this soup. It’s also good to taste one of the carrots first to make sure it’s a sweet carrot, and not a bitter carrot. Otherwise you’ll get that bitter taste all through the soup.

How to do the thing:

Peel things that need peeling. (Carrots etc.)
Roughly chop things that need chopping (Carrots, onions, garlic, ginger). 

(Remember you’re using the stick blender to blend everything later, so you don’t need to worry about things being nicely cut or whatever - except for the garlic and ginger).

Fry ginger and garlic in ghee or butter or margarine in soup pot. Until the house smells really good.

Add onions. Cook until soft and a little see-through.

Add all the rest. (Sans rosemary.)

Add enough water that you can see it, but it doesn’t completely cover the vegetables. You can always boil it off if you add too much, or add more if it’s too little.

Bring to boil and then simmer on low heat for a thousand years with some kind of lid on the pot. Seriously like it takes about 1.5-2 hours for me. This is a soup I like to forget about.

When carrots are soft enough that they can be easily smooshed with a fork or wooden spoon, turn off stove and get your stick blender out. Blend that fucker down.

You should end with a smooth, creamy, orange soup that tastes absolutely incredible given the main ingredient is carrots.

Alter flavours as needed, and add your rosemary. (Put back on stove on low heat for this).

Can be served with sour cream except I don’t like sour cream.

Serve with crusty bread if you like that too!

Have seconds!

Have thirds and try not to think about how many carrots you’ve just consumed….

It will taste better the day after, as most soups do. :D
