Honestly, this was probably my favorite DAPG vid in a while. Idk why, I just loved the RPG, the interactions, the music and game references, it was just really good
it was incredible, and i think it might be my favorite gaming video ever. i can’t get over how excited they both were about it and i loved how dan was trying to tease phil about his grammar or whatever but couldn’t stop himself from giving phil praise and compliments every minute because DAMN he deserves it??? i know next to nothing about gaming or how one would use whatever tool phil mentioned to make a game like this, sixteen years ago mind you, but fuck it’s clear that regardless of whatever help that technology gave him, he still had to do a shit ton of work to make this and think of the story and the characters and write all the dialogue and i’m just so IMPRESSED with him and his brain. it was so clear that dan was too, the whole entire time. and i love that dan’s support doesn’t just stop with comments like “i like this” or “i’m having a lot of fun” (which are great in themselves) but that he takes it even farther and tells phil that he (phil) could make his own game now and that he should even do all the drawings for it. like this video gave us a chance to watch dan being phil’s biggest creative supporter, and basically tell him that he, dan, has faith in phil’s ability to make or create just about anything and even though we knew that was the case, it was so overwhelmingly sweet to me to see it in action like that. i also love how phil was so excited to see that dan was impressed with the game? he looked pleasantly surprised and so happy every time dan told him he liked it and i wanted to cry. and i can’t get over the music choices and how dan identified and knew every single one after like .3 seconds and how each time a new song came on they’d turn to each other and smile as dan recognized it and i’m sure there’s just a depth of shared conversations and nostalgia there for them bc a lot of the songs are from classic games they both love and others are just ones that it seems like dan would know phil likes (like “smooth” by santana and bohemian rhapsody). it was so sweet to see not only dan being supportive and excited but also to see how much their interests and knowledge overlap, even to the point of them becoming self-aware about it and apologizing to us for the number of inside jokes and references they were making, and to the point of them noting that at 14 years old they would’ve still been friends and probably gotten along the way they do now. it’s wild to me, always, that they found each other and that they align on soooo many things, and it was making me so emotional to see that play out in this video. they are literally so perfectly suited to share a life together i don’t even understand… i will gladly watch several hours of dan fawning over phil’s mind and talent and creativity, of dan being so visibly PROUD of his partner, and of phil basking in the compliments. it’s the most heartwarming thing, and i just love this video SO much
So, i know it’s just a part. I’ll try to finish this one some other day…
Hope you like and leave some comments? reblog? idk, this is my second animatic ever, so i’m still learning. The drawing style is really messy, and in some parts the style looks weird and different? but yeh, i’m trying.
I JUST GOT INTO KNK !!! IS THERE A MASTERPOST WITH THE BEST VIDEOS N INFO TO START WITH?? 💕
First of all, welcome to our little family/fandom
I don’t necessarily have a specific master post but I will create one right now. Since I don’t want this to cover up people’s dash, just click read more because I’ll try to go through everything as simply as I can :’) (Edit: REALLY sorry y’all for some reason this doesn’t work on mobile app so I’m removing the ‘read more’ thing)
First of all, the basics: there are 5 members. Although they may look cool in their music videos, they’re just a bunch of dorks.. Don’t be fooled.
Let’s briefly start with Kim Youjin: ‘93 liner, the eldest member, basically the dad (and the mum) of the group,
looks like a dinosaur when he sings, hates skin ship (he literally cringes), had the cutest red nose after removing his mask when he was on king of masked singer (idk why I think this is important to know), nothing scares this guy, usually quiet but he is just as weird as the rest of the members once he gets comfortable.
Park Seungjun: also a ‘93, the tallest member, a big softie, gave us the name tinkerbell (how cute), calls cartoon and game characters his ‘sunbaenim’, likes talking about Jihun’s butt (I always mention this but oh gOD), loves skin ship and will find any excuse to have skin ship, his laugh..is special, self-proclaimed as ‘best in english’ in knk, drinks a lot of pumpkin juice.
Next is Jeong Inseong: ‘94 liner, basically a bunny, has the cutest laugh, usually the loudest (screams when something shocks him but it is cute), also loves skin ship (well they all do minus Youjin), hits them high notes so smoothly and makes it look easy, he watched his own performance 50 times because who wouldn’t, likes to show tinkerbells love.
Then we have Kim Jihun: ‘95 liner, a.k.a Kimchi or Kimchihun, the leader, funniest laugh, he turned blonde and ruined half of tinkerbells’ lives (because he looked so good), assumed to be Seungjun’s boyfriend (those two..), he choreographed two of KNK’s dances and ruined everyone’s life with his performance of Troublemaker with Hani from EXID.
Lastly, Oh Heejun: ‘96 liner, maknae, in 95% of their broadcasts you will find him on the floor, his reactions are so extra, easily the one who gets scared the most, is Youjin’s weakness, he is everyone’s weakness tbh, I believe he is the funniest member (idk how many people have him as their bias wrecker or bias but you can’t not love him!), smol bean.
As for other things I could recommend, I recommend going through their vlive broadcasts and their My KNK TV episodes (you can find these on youtube-I’ll link my favourites with the rest of the videos down there).
Here is a list of things you could watch (not sure if all their content has English subs though, turn on CC)
My KNK TV (only posting some, you can find more on that youtube channel with english subs (bless them), or you can find them on their vapp channel)
me: sure here’s all the members real names, stage names, positions in the group, hair color each member has had, personality traits, every TV program the group as been in, 37 fancams of each member, every single song, music video, solo performances, dance practices, vlogs, memes, twitter posts, instagram posts, mnet link, naver link, directions on how to stream music videos properly, tumblr blogs to follow, and schedule for every month…but yeah thats just the basics I just really like them idk :)
HONESTLY, I’m not even upset that 21p won against fob? Like I was wholeheartedly expecting it, I just WISH it wasn’t for heavydirtysoul. Like that was genuinely a bland music video, and I understand that Y&M was an odd song, but at least the music video (the thing the award was for) was different and awing and REALLY fit the song, and the aesthetic mania is attempting to bring.
one thing i really want to see for the sonic series in the future is a solo title for amy rose.
like…maybe in the game…sonic gets captured by DR eggman, and is somehow unable to escape his base (weighed down shoes?)
so, amy volunteers to save sonic! and throughout the game tails gives you instructions on the sidelines?
the game has levels designed specially for amy, and you get peppy and sweet stage music that fits her character!
special gameplay is made out of her abilities, like no, maybe she can’t run as fast as sonic, but DAMN can she break things with her hammer! so maybe the gimmick is you break through obstacles with her hammer?
Okay so this is what I have to say about the video
1. The mo cap is amazing??! Oh my God it’s so beautiful and fluid! They have come a long way from the MisterJam interview and I am so proud of the work that they put into the video
2. Um….where is my husband Russ?? He isn’t there. They used a drawing of him. Like I said before at least tell the fandom why he isn’t have a mo cap made just to save face or something?? Idk. I’m pissed tf off. And speaking as a black fan, it hurts a lot
3. I loved seeing how happy the rest of the gang is. And honestly for the people saying that it seemed random, I feel like they’re going in the direction of what Damon has been saying on the interviews about what this album means as a cohesive theme and it being about having a good time at the end of the world or something? Like yes they always have music videos that are cohesively one story line but maybe this phase might be different. Or it could just be that they’re trying new things and are going back to 2D animations after they see how this did? Or maybe it’ll be like Stylo where it’s the only different music video out of the rest and the others will be animated?
I really hope they try to go with Damon’s idea/premise for the album and run with that bc that’ll seem pretty interesting and cool and that’ll be the biggest contribution to lore he’s ever done besides Sleeping Powder
4. ALSO CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW A SHIT TON OF ARTISTS WERE IN THE VIDEO I SWEAR I THOUGHT DAMON WAS GONNA COME OUT AT ONE POINT 💀💀💀 I HATE THIS
Idk those are my two cents. I literally just woke up 18 minutes after the music video uploaded so I’ll watch it later in the day ahahaah
whenever kuroo does videos with kenma, the video always opens up with him filming kenma, asking if he wants to do a video with him. answers kuroo has received include: "not particularly"; “do I have to?”; “nnnn”; “make dinner then we’ll talk”; *kenma looking up from his game w fury in his eyes* “never speak to me again”
when not doing collabs, kuroo does fun educational videos (like a mix of the history of japan + charlie’s fun science) as well as weird stories that happen to him
kenma plays games. he doesn’t use a facecam, and i think it took a long time before he appeared in anyone elses videos, but when he did, he just dropped the most casual bombshell ever. like maybe it was just like “well anyway i guess i’ll finally do a faq. okay: ‘what do you look like?’ - well, that’s all for now. if you have any more questions, send them to kuroo”
akaashi practices film making and so has really pretty + aesthetic videos of his walks through woods or of rooms in his house. he also probably makes videos where he sits down and talks, like idk maybe advice sort things?? like idk maybe for studying/memorising. sometimes he’ll play video games with kenma. sometimes he’ll do cooking/baking videos with bokuto. maybe he does singing videos? or music of some sort, but finds them too embarrassing to post.
Something interesting about the whole “Taylor is dead” thing.
Soooo IDK if any of you have ever heard of the whole “Paul McCartney is dead” thing that the Beatles did, but it’s a really popular urban legend and I feel like Taylor may be drawing from this? Basically, the whole idea around this was the Beatles started putting clues in their music that Paul McCartney was dead. They would put in secret messages in their songs that when reversed said “Paul is dead” and put a bunch of clues in their lyrics and album covers. Here are just a few examples:
1. A video of different secret messages about Paul being dead in their songs.
2. “The phrase “Hear Lies Paul” being spelled out on one of their album covers.
3. One of their album covers where when you rotate it, Paul is in a casket.
Now these are just a few examples and I haven’t even begun scratching the surface. But here is where it gets really interesting.
In this “Paul is dead” myth that the Beatles created and/or drew from a rumor, the old Paul died in a car crash and was replaced by a “new Paul.”
Here is an example of a lyric from their song “A Day in the Life”:
I saw the photograph He blew his mind out in a car He didn’t notice that the lights had changed A crowd of people stood and stared They’d seen his face before
So, we’ve established the whole narrative of how Paul dies is that it’s from a car crash. Now, why is this interesting? Well, take a look at this image from the teaser of Taylor’s video:
Looks a whole lot like a car crash, does it not?
The whole rumor about this video is that the old Taylor is going to die and get replaced by a new Taylor, so this image being Taylor dying in a car crash wouldn’t be too far fetched.
Overall, I think this is interesting and gives more insight on the whole idea of “The old Taylor is dead.” The whole idea of the Paul Is Dead narrative is that the Beatles felt dead, washed up and a shell of their former selves because of how fame and the media changed them and effected them, which seems to be what Taylor’s whole album is about.
Thoughts? Is this Taylor’s version of what the Beatles did? Am I just insane and overthinking it and trying to be interesting with a stupid conspiracy? Probably.
6770 words, where aspiring boxer!jeongguk learns that he loves you no matter how you wear your hair (and of course, you love him too)
briefly inspired by the shape of you music video(?) idk i just really liked the boxer!au thing going on lol
rated f, for fluffiness
with housemate jin, math nerds namjoon and taehyung (I put his self-acclaimed grammy winning math award ass into good use) and boxing coaches!jimin and yoongi
Jeongguk arrives at his 5 o’ clock slot sharp heaving and
somehow proud, because that run was record time considering he got off work
later than usual because Taehyung had messed up some customer’s drink and his
workplace was at least 3 blocks away from the dingy, old boxing gym that he’d
booked a slot at with Jimin, the resident trainer who claimed he had once took
on someone above his weight class and still came out undefeated.
Except said trainer was currently occupied with blocking
punches thrown from someone Jeongguk doesn’t manage to recognize, because he’s
sure that figure wouldn’t be one that he would forget easily, especially with
the way the stranger’s sportswear- Jeongguk decides he won’t admit he’s been
staring at her sports bra for now- hugs and accentuates her curves and
abdominals that he tries to get a better look at despite the shitty lighting in
the gym. And Jeongguk as a normal, hormonal, twenty-something guy would have
reacted to the rare female presence if not for the blaring reminder that Jimin
promised a slot with him and said female was currently eating into his 90-minute
session which did not come cheap for a uni student paying his own rent.
Add that to how he just completed the run of his life and a
quick glance at the wall clock indicating his slot started 10 minutes ago, Jeongguk’s
irritation and extremely short temper comes with good excuse when it surfaces
in a shout directed to Jimin.
“What the hell hyung, we were supposed to start 10 minutes
HELLO I JUST WOKE UP FROM A 20 MINUTE POWER NAP AND I STILL HAVE OVER HALF A CHAPTER TO GO FOR HOMEWORK BUT I HAD THE BEST FUCKING DREAM IN MY ENTIRE LIFE
it starts out like a trailer for a horror movie. it’s like the 17th century and a man is on trial for aiding a witch, so he’s about to be burned alive. he doesn’t burn. they try to sink him. he doesn’t drown. they try to cut his throat but the blood just bubbles out and comes back in. the only solution is that they bury him deep underground in a part of the dark forest where nothing would grow where he would stay, always starving and lonely.
cuts to 2017. the forest has long been wiped out for a neighborhood complex. it’s just a mom and her son (i was the son in my dream lmao) in the newest house. there’s a flash of a conversation where the contractors explain they’ve been trying to build on this certain plot of land for years, and it was perfect because it was flat and had no vegetation. but no matter what they did, every foundation they scrounged up ended up collapsing in on itself.
the mom and the son take that as a good omen bc they’ve had a rough couple of years. the dad isn’t in the picture, most likely for more concerning issues. the mom and son live in the house for around a month before the son starts to hear it: footsteps. they’re sporadic and just sound like the house creaking so he doesn’t pay any mind.
HOWEVER: one day the mom goes “alright, you have the day off but I don’t. I’ll be off around 4. the dishes better be done when i get home.”
and the son says, “yeah, yeah okay, whatever.” and waits until she’s out the door to get started.
cue the ominous music as he starts washing dishes, cut to the dark hallway just behind him as a door opens up and the black frame of a man walks out. he’s slowly lumbering down the hallway towards the boy who’s trying to connect his phone to the surround sound speakers in the house.
the ominous music grows as the distance shortens until it’s at a crescendo. the man is just about to step over the threshold and you can tell he’s got white glowing eyes and a dark face, long overgrown with a shaggy beard and mane (but otherwise would’ve been handsome) when the speakers pick up the boy’s music and start blasting it:
the man goes from ominous and foreboding to wtf?? while the boy starts washing the dishes and gyrating his hips and wailing along to cher. he takes a ladle and mimes the guitar solo. he does one hard twirl and sees the man, standing in the doorway with a dumbfounded look on his face. the boy screams and runs into his mom’s room and calls 911.
cut scene to like 2 months after that. the boy is kinda wary but he’s mostly over it. he’s been trying to look up stuff about the house and finds out about the witch trials, but doesn’t think the man he saw is the man Proctor Guthrie, who was buried alive. the boy is sitting at his computer and starts playing some music, just chilling, and the ominous music grows again as the closet door behind him opens the man from before steps out. his white eyes are glowing again and he stakes two steps forward but stops as the boy turns around.
right when they make eye contact another song starts playing
i can’t remember really what happens next, but the two basically just listen to 80′s music and the boy calls the “ghost” Al (bc of the song) and showing the man stuff on the internet like youtube cat videos
Can you write one where harry and you are shopping and he keeps buying you so many things and you are so not used to being spoiled like that and you keep on telling him not to and trying to pay but he gives you this stern fuck lol. He just spoils u!
Warnings: it’s suckish, sorryyyyy
Word Count: 1,251
Request: YES! Keep sending them in!
Note: I would love to spoil him back but I imagine he’d be such and easy yet at the same time ahard person to give a gift to, he would love anything you gave him because he truly believes that it’s the thought that matters, but still you’d freak out thinking so hard about what to give him that he REALLY likes and is not just politely taking it for your sake. idk.
09. Spoiled Love.
Going shopping with Harry could be one of various types of events. A hassle when he gets noticed by mobs of fans. Sometimes, mostly always, it’s really fun and you have a nice laugh because you look like a music video, the stereotypical couple running through aisles, joking, playing hide and seek and getting on the brink of being kicked out of the store. Other times, it was a little frustrating. This was one of those times.
Because Harry’s a big spender, a giver with a heart of gold and mind that jumps from a thought to another in .03 seconds when he’s giddy. Which is why everything you spend more than 5 seconds looking at, he throws in the shopping cart, or grabs it in his hands, eventually needing a basket.
It’s a common thing that he does, he’s been doing it for as long as you know him, always thinking about what he could spontaneously gift someone for no reason in particular, and the longer you’re together, the more he does this kind of things.
Author’s Note: Aw I’ve always wanted to do this ever since I heard Joshua say he would want a first date on a boardwalk ;; oh and no I’m not from California as a local could clearly tell ;-; sorry! idk what a Cali boardwalk is like so I based it off a music video I saw, what my friend told me once + the boardwalks we have in Hawaii. Really really sorry if it’s nothing like what I described! bUT I hope everyone likes it!
