idk how you can outright point out the sexual refs in Colors and seriously believe that you somehow turned the song platonic Theres nothing you can do to a line like "i only felt religion when i lied with you" to make it platonic. How can you turn a songs meaning around when the writer themselves has said its romantic anyways? I get interpretation, but when you use a clearly romantic song for a familial relationship... u can say it's platonic all u want but it doesnt change the songs meaning

lol omg ok so have you even seen the comic my guy

i didnt say i made the song platonic, the point i was trying to make was that even with those lyrics i managed to make the comic platonic. the song is what it is i cant change shit about it. the reason why i chose it in the first place was that there was still enough for me to work with that those lines weren’t an issue or distraction to the story i was telling with the comic. im not gonna choose some mushy kissykissy love song to draw to, im not stupid.

anyway, you asked how i could possibly change the meaning?? easy, use the picture. its a lyric comic, i cant tell my story with the words alone, the words by themselves tell their own story, thats what songs do. to tell my story i need to have my pictures morph the song to my liking. i’ll tell you what i did with those lines and my thinking behind them oh, curious little anon.

so! the first “issue” verse:

  • You were a vision in the morning when the light came through– for this line i drew stan during his first tour, trying to show that by pretending to be ford/ the owner of the shack, stan finally found something he was good at, a “light”
  • I know I’ve only felt religion when i’ve lied with you– the line you mentioned, congrats! i drew a background of the welcome signs to the shack. with the combination of the shack and the lyric i was trying to imply that stan only found happiness by lying to everyone. see? that wasnt so hard.
  • You said you’ll never be forgiven till your boys are too– tried to show stans effort of trying to get ford back, drew a stack of books to imply his studying, there’s also his newspaper clipping of his “death” as well as a faded picture of the stans as kids (plus a stanbuck and mystery mug). i used this picture-lyric combo to imply stan being completely unable to forgive himself until he found a way to fix what he’d done i.e. get ford back
  • And I’m still waking every morning but it’s not with you– hammer in stans effort, time skip to old stan passed out over the lab desk, implying the 30 years stans gone with no success. literally he wakes up every morning and its another day that ford isnt back.

and finally the second “issue” verse:

  • You were red, and you liked me because I was blue– start of a flash back sequence, stan and ford as kids. they were complete opposites but thats what they liked about each other, two halves of the same whole.
  • But you touched me, and suddenly I was a lilac sky– i drew the boat, the single most important object to their childhood that changed the course of their whole lives. it became stan and fords shared interest and dream throughout their childhood.
  • Then you decided purple just wasn’t for you– drew a lone stan after being kicked out. ford wanted to go to school, stan still wanted to leave on the boat. at the end of it all stan still had that dream, fords dream had changed, and their now separate desires drove them away from each other.

and thats how you change the meanings.
some lines are easier than others, but just because these verses on their own tell a vastly different story that doesnt mean i cant use their words to help tell minethats how you draw a lyric comic. and thus, i made halseys romantic song tell my platonic story. ta da~

oh and heres the comic, since this ask clearly tells me you’ve yet to see it. ignore the misuse of the word “seems” instead of “seams”, i fucked up and its too late

omg have you heard the song play me that song by brantley gilbert?? even if you dont like country music just look at the lyrics and cant you totally imagine like maybe the girl niall wrote this town about, he is close friends with and a similar thing that happens in play me that song happens with them. im trying to word this so it makes sense but idk if im doing a very good job lol. regardless, i need someone to write that hahaha

Play Me That Song

I was always so flustered whenever she called.  Which made no sense whatsoever.  We’d known each other since we were in diapers.  We used to take baths together.  We laid in cribs together.  We walked to and home from school together.  We had sleepovers.  We went to every major school function together.  I couldn’t remember anything huge that ever happened to me without her being there.  

I don’t think I knew what it felt like to not be in love with her.  I spent my nights as a teenager wondering what it would feel like to touch her, hold her, kiss her.  But by the time I got up the nerve to say something, I’d become a member of One Direction.  I missed my shot, mainly because I didn’t want to say something when my life was such a whirlwind of activity.  I couldn’t give her the kind of attention she deserved back then.

But I was almost 24 years old now.  And things had calmed down.  I was able to breathe.  I was able to sit back and enjoy the success I’d worked so hard for.  As happy as I was for what I’d accomplished, there was always something missing.

I tried so hard to move on from it.  I dated other girls.  But nothing ever panned out.  Everything always came back to her.

Do you think this election has made Lana change her stance on feminism? I feel like in her interviews and stuff she's been sounding very pro-woman, plus God Bless America and all the witchy stuff? Idk

Yes

Pitchfork: Just a few years ago you were saying you didn’t care about feminism, and now you are writing protest songs and meditations on war and peace.

Lana Del Rey: Because things have shifted culturally. It’s more appropriate now than under the Obama administration, where at least everyone I knew felt safe. It was a good time. We were on the up-and-up. Women started to feel less safe under this administration instantly. What if they take away Planned Parenthood? What if we can’t get birth control? Now, when people ask me those questions, I feel a little differently. The reason why I asked Stevie Nicks to be on the record is because she changes when her environment changes, and I’m like that as well. In “When the World Was at War We Kept Dancing,” I wrote, “Boys, don’t make too much noise/Don’t try to be funny/Other people may not be understanding.” Like, Can you tone down your over-boisterous rhetoric that isn’t working? “God Bless America - And All the Beautiful Women in It” is a little shout out to the women and anyone else who doesn’t always feel safe walking down the street late at night. 

Pitchfork: Do you feel unsafe?

Lana Del Rey: I feel less safe than I did when Obama was president. When you have a leader at the top of the pyramid who is casually being loud and funny about things like that, it’s brought up character defects in people who already have the propensity to be violent towards women. I saw it right away in L.A. Walking down the street, people would just say things to you that I had never heard. When people asked me the feminist question before, I was like, “I’m not really experiencing personal discrimination as a woman. I feel like I’m doing well. I headline shows just like the Weeknd does. I got tons of women in my life, love women, support women.” I just felt like, Why don’t we talk about the music first? I can tell you that what I have done for women is tell my own story, and that’s all anyone can do.

Ah, yes. The signature I Don’t Know What You Did But I Can Already Tell I Will Disapprove look from Darius.

I think the version of Alterra that lives in my head is the wrong one. I miss the shenanigans these two used to get into. The version I have in my head doesn’t allow me to show you the more playful side that is the true nature of this relationship. It’s just PAIN AND ANGST AND MORE PAIN AND MORE ANGST and idk. That doesn’t feel right.

I have been rethinking Alterra lately. I am sure it’s because I am getting “cold feet” about pursuing an original project. But honestly…it just doesn’t feel ready like I thought it did.

I want to do something more fun. Like….I don’t feel compelled to write Alterra the way I felt compelled to write Conquest of Spaces.

And I wonder if it’s because I am trying to tell the wrong version of the story…
