idk I just love how we Young People Today use ~improper~ punctuation/grammar in actually really defined ways to express tone without having to explicitly state tone like that’s just really fucking cool, like
okay but just picture a song by twenty one pilots, fall out boy, and panic! at the disco. 12 minutes long, intense drums, alternating between beautiful vocals and just really poignant spoken word/raps, there’s like a sick guitar riff. and whenever it starts playing you gotta mentally prepare yourself because its always a fucking experience. somebody is gonna cry during this song.
okay but what if jungkook used to tease jimin by not calling him ‘hyung’ because he wants Jimin to see him as someone equal as him not as the youngest member in the group, because he don’t want jimin to love him as a baby brother he don’t want jimin to love him because he is cute and because he is the youngest among them, because he wants jimin to see him as a man that he could love and could love him back too so thats why he always making fun of Jimin also thats why jungkook works out a lot because kids are not supposed to have muscles right? kids are not supposed to look sexy right? that way maybe his jimin hyung will look at him as a man
All of a sudden Taylor Swift stands up and says, ‘I’ll play a song!’ I was like, 'Thank god, Taylor Swift is here!’ So she gets on the piano and I think, 'Okay, I’ll jam with her.’
“So I pick up one of Paul’s left-handed basses off the wall; I’m super high, she starts playing, and I’m just trying to figure out how to play along to what she’s doing. It was kind of like one of those nightmares where you’re running backwards, or you’re always late for whatever you’ve got to go to.
"She was playing this really beautiful thing on piano, and I look at my wife like, 'I know this fucking song!’ And she was playing our song, 'Best of You’…
"As if I wasn’t high enough, that fucking blew me into outer space, man! I was like, 'Wait a second, Taylor Swift, 'Best of You,’ Paul McCartney, pot, what?!’ I just lost my mind, so I felt obligated to sit next to her and duet. But her voice, she’s got a good voice, she can sing, man.”

Lost in skies of powdered gold Caught in clouds of silver ropes Showered by the empty hopes As I tumble down, falling fast to the ground Cover your crystal eyes And let your colours bleed and blend with mine
When Hamilton fans tell me they don’t like hip-hop, I have gotten these arguments…
“Hip-hop doesn’t really tell a story like
“They use the N-Word all the time and just talk about
bitches, money, and shallow stuff…”
“It’s just all degrading to women…”
A valid argument for many songs, but…
“OKAY, it’s just not the style of music I like! I grew up
with showtunes and that’s what I’m into!”
Me: THAT’S ALL YOU HAD TO SAY
Smacked Down Hamilfan:Okay.
*pause* ONE MORE THING—
Note: If you’ve never really listened to classic hip-hop/rap, please listen to these songs. They’re some of my faves. And if the n-word bothers you, Biggie’s song is the only song in this rec list that uses it. Also, that song, though amazing, could be triggering so you can skip on that one if you want.
