You get ready, you get all dressed up,
To go nowhere in particular,
Back to work or the coffee shop,
Doesn’t matter cause it’s enough,
To be young and in love.

Love, Lana Del Rey.

This song is so powerful but this verse breaks my heart. 

i love how taylor swift repeats lyrics in her songs but with slight changes to really make you think like in innocent she turns “lost your balance on a tightrope lost your mind trying to get it back” into “lost your balance on a tightrope it’s never too late to get it back” 

I love how the lyrics of every song in DAMN. are connected:

“Is it wickedness? Is it weakness? You decide. Are we gonna live or die?” -BLOOD.

“Tell me when destruction gonna be my fate, gonna be your fate, gonna be our fate. Peace to the world, let it rotate.” -DNA.

“Don’t call me Black no mo’. That word is only a color, it ain’t facts no mo’.” -YEAH.

“‘Cause most of y'all ain’t real, most of y'all gon’ squeal, most of y'all just envy, but jealousy get you killed. Most of y'all throw rocks and try to hide your hand.” -ELEMENT.

“Feel like the feelin’ of no hope, the feelin’ of bad dope. A quarter ounce manipulated from soap. The feelin’, the feelin’ of false freedom.” -FEEL.

“Tell me who you loyal to. Is it money? it is fame? Is it weed? Is it drink? Is it comin’ down with the loud pipes and the rain? Big chillin’, only for the power in your name…Tell me who you loyal to. Do it start with your woman or your man? Do it end with your family and friends? Or you’re loyal to yourself in advance? I said, tell me who you loyal to. Is it anybody that you would lie for? Anybody you would slide for? Anybody you would die for? That’s what God for.” -LOYALTY.

“See, in a perfect world, I’ll choose faith over riches, I’ll choose work over bitches, I’ll make schools out of prison. I’ll take all the religions and put ‘em all in one service. Just to tell ‘em we ain’t shit, but He’s been perfect, world” -PRIDE.

“This shit way too crazy, you do not amaze me… I don’t fabricate it, most of y'all be fakin’. I stay modest ‘bout it.” -HUMBLE.

“Lately, I feel like I been lusting over the fame. Lately, we lust on the same routine of shame. Lately, lately, lately my lust been hiding. Lately, it’s all contradiction. Lately I’m not here. Lately, I lust over self, lust turn into fear. Lately, in James 4:4 says: ‘friend of the world is enemy of the Lord’. Brace yourself, lust is all yours” -LUST.

“Damn, love or lust. Damn, all of us’.’ -LOVE.

“Tell me what you do for love, loyalty, and passion of all the memories collected, moments you could never touch.” -XXX.

“(I don’t think I can find a way to make it on this earth) What’s up family, yeah it’s yo cousin Carl man, just given’ you a call man. I know you been havin’ a lot on yo mind lately and I know you feel like ya know people ain’t been prayin’ for you but you have to understand this man, that we are a cursed people. Deuteronomy 28:28 says, “The Lord shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart.” See family that’s why you feel like you feel like you got a chip on your shoulder. Until you finally get the memo, you will always feel that way. Why God, why God do I gotta suffer? Why God, why God do I gotta bleed? (…) Goddamn you, goddamn me, goddamn us, goddamn we, goddamn us all.” -FEAR.

“Don’t judge me, don’t judge me.”-GOD.

“It was always me versus the world, until I found it’s me versus me. Why, why, why, why? Why, why, why, why? Just remember what happens on earth stays on earth! We gon’ put it in reverse.“ -DUCKWORTH.>

It’s like a tale about all the struggles that black community have to fight within itself.

sunlitshowers  asked:


i know u guys don’t know any of the songs so i’ll explain everything i mention under the cut!!!

Song I wish was longer: Luke’s Good Kid Reprise (listen i know it’s part of The Last Day of Summer but like. It should get to exist in its own right). but if we’re talking full songs, probably Strong. 
Song I wish was shorter: The Last Day of Summer (except Luke’s part)
The one song I always skip: um there’s no soundtrack yet but i could probably go without Drive. or The Oracle. 
Song I sing the best: Good Kid is the only one I’ve tried but i sound p good i guess. I’ve also sung the only 3 words of Son of Poseidon that i know and they are right in my range god bless
Song I still don’t know all the words to: fucking….all of them. i want to know the words to my grand plan tho
Song that honestly deserves an award or five: my grand plan
Song that’s terrible but I still love: Lost! (it’s not bad at all it’s just a little cheesy haha. honestly one of my favorite songs) 
Song that’s really good but I hate: i loved them all! 
Song I think could change the world: good kid
Song I wish I’d written: the tree on the hill 

Also shoutout to other songs that were great but i didn’t mention: DOA, The Campfire Song, and Another Terrible Day! 

send me a musical!

I love how the Brazilian lyrics to “The Mob Song” in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast throw shade at toxic masculinity.

In Portuguese Gaston’s lines

So it’s time to take some action, boys!
It’s time to follow me!

were translated as 

Quem for homem vai ter que lutar!
Terá que me seguir!

which pretty much translates as 

Anyone who’s a “real” man will have to fight and follow me!

In other words, the villager’s toxic need to prove they’re macho men makes them easily exploitable and leads them to get hurt (or killed). 

Because they care so much about being seen as masculine, all it takes to control them is to put their masculinity into question and give them an ultimatum: if you don’t do this thing then you’re not a real man.

And that’s all it takes. 

Gaston really didn’t need to say anything else, because according to toxic masculinity, being seen as even remotely feminine is unacceptable.

P.S. Literally translated the lines are

Anyone who’s a man will have to fight!
Will have to follow me!

Hey guys! This is just my reaction/summary post of the BTS Concert in Newark (Thursday, 3/23)! I’ll be going into a lot of detail, but bare with me. I’ve linked all the fancams I took throughout the post, so you can check that out :)

[Full Fancam Playlist]


Alright so first things first…I’ve been following BTS since ~May/June 2014, and this was the first time I was actually able to go to a live concert. I WAS LITERALLY BEYOND THE MOON when I got tickets, and I was so excited that I was badgering everyone I knew with my fangirling. BTS means so much to me, they got me through some of the hardest times in my life, and they gave me happiness and hope. So getting to go to one of their concerts, see them and support them in person, was such a blessing.
