anonymous asked:

seventeen vocal unit most likely to listen to music during sex and what kind?

(ordered most to least likely) 

  • Joshua/Jisoo

he would be the super romantic type. he would be obsessed with setting the scene, putting rose petals on the bed, lighting candles, getting champagne, the whole nine yards, and music would go along with that easily. even if he couldn’t do those other things, music would be a quick and easy way for him to set a romantic mood. 

and the type of music? the cheesy, romantic, classic stuff. the kind of sexy but classy stuff from the 80s and 90s (probably also early 2000s) that your parents probably fucked to. stuff like Careless Whisper and The Way You Look Tonight, and oooh, especially early 2000s Usher. he would be a sucker for fucking to the smooth voice of that man. 

  • Seokmin/DK

he would be another old fashioned romantic type 

he would be a bit more modern with his music, choosing things like modern rap and any kind of sexy music. Beyonce would be among his top choices, Partition being a song that he couldn’t count the number of times that he’s cum listening to. 

  • Woozi/Jihoon

he wouldn’t need to listen to music while fucking, but being the music-minded man he is, the simple pleasure of a good song would turn sex into a fuller and better experience for him. having something with a lot of bass turned on and turned up loud, so loud that he could feel it shaking his flesh while he shook the headboard with his thrusts 

  • Seungkwan 

(I always have a hard time getting a feel for him when it comes to smut/sexy headcanons? I don’t know why??) 

I feel like he would enjoy music when given the opportunity, but would enjoy experiencing his partner more 

  • Jeonghan

he really wouldn’t care - he would just wanna fuck, no matter the circumstances

I am posting my all-time favourite collections over the next lil while, see here for previous posts

Nina Ricci Fall 2009

This collection was Olivier at his best, so it’s a shame that it was also his swan song at Nina Ricci. The mood here was quite different to his previous outings, less romantic. I remember at the time what stood out to me first was the ridiculous shoes but actually.. they don’t look so ridiculous now, almost kind of.. normal. I hate to admit it, but maybe Lady Gaga circa 2010 has desensitized me to shoes that look difficult to walk in. The beauty here is in the individual pieces tho. The 80s/Mugler inspired shoulders on the jackets, the mini dresses that did Decarnin x Balmain better than Decarnin, the leather jacket, the catsuit, the amazing silhouettes on the evening gowns, and of course the sharp tailoring in the suits. A tru master of demi couture. Can someone please find him a job worthy of his talent???

Side note: This has nothing to do with the actual collection but when I went back to find pictures for this post I was reminded of how incredibly WHITE the runways were back then. And it was totally normal for an entire show to be all white models. I’m so glad that people have started calling out designers/casting directors over recent seasons because even though we’ve still got a long way to go diversity is so much better now. 

Stanley Pines is a fan of Tom Waits and you will have to pry that headcanon from my cold dead fingers.

My evidence:

Tom Waits’s first album, Closing Time, was released about a year after Stan was kicked out. 

Between 1973 and 1983, i.e., a period of time when Stan was living out of his car, Tom Waits focused heavily on themes of drifters, travelers, criminals, seedy locations, alcohol, regret, gamblers and shysters. 

While Stan was living as a drifter, Tom was living life on the road too. He was a travelling musician slowly becoming more and more fed up with that lifestyle. He was drinking heavily, and getting into a dark and dire place which slowly started to show in his music. 

Meaning that while Stan watched one dream or scheme die after another, Tom Waits’s music was following his mood. Tom was singing about the kind of places and people that Stan ran into in his day-to-day life. And while Stan slowly grew more disillusioned and less hopeful about his future, Tom’s music also grew darker, sadder and more cynical.

In the early 80s, when Stan was getting the Murder Hut/Mystery Shack started, Tom was getting more experimental with his music–this was when he started to develop some of the weirder themes and uses of instruments he’s most known for today.

Tom Wait’s music since then has included a lot of focus on the following themes:

  • Carnivals, junk shops, performers and showmen
  • Downtrodden, doomed and overlooked people and places
  • Weird, spooky-ooky stuff–monsters, mysteries, secret places and hidden lore
  • Regret, sorrow, living with ones’s mistakes
  • Seedy/shady characters, criminals and con artists.
  • Morbid topics and themes of death
  • EDIT: OH YEAH. And sailing. Sailing too.

Tom Waits is the only singer whose music Stan doesn’t feel like he’s ruining with his gravelly voice when he sings along.

Tips for writing Bill Cipher

Since people seemed to like my last post, I’ve decided to make one that goes into greater detail on this. I hope you find this guide to be helpful.

If you’re having trouble thinking up of a human form for Bill, just don’t do it at all. There are other ways for him to interact with characters in the waking world. For example, he could trick an animal (such as Gompers or Waddles) into letting him inhabit their body. If Bill was able to produce fire while in Dipper’s body, it’s not a far streach to assume that he would be capable of human speech in an animal’s body.

Ease up on the Pinetree! In the show, Bill rarely refers to Dipper as that. He’s much more likely to call him by “kid.”

In his Reddit AMA, Bill had no issue with being called William or Billy. He also said that he “liked wearing human flesh the way Jack the Ripper liked wearing clown masks.” Assuming that this means Bill only does it for his own enjoyment, possessing a human form wouldn’t be his main ambition unless he was just in the mood to do so.

Don’t go overboard on the blood (it’s the easiest way to seem like you’re trying too hard to be dark and angsty) but be sure to stray outside of Disney censors.

Alex Hirsch grew up in the 80s and 90s, so try and have Bill occasionally refrence pop culture from that time period. You know, the kind that was so replayed that it was permanently fried into your brain. Bill is a dream demon, so he’s bound to encounter things like this in the human subconscious. (Like that Sears air conditioning commercial.)

In Dipper & Mabel’s Guide to Mystery and Nonstop Fun, Bill said that he liked to eat childhood memories, so don’t assume that he has any code of honor about going for children.

With a character like Bill, you can never have enough conspiracy theories, urban lore, and historical events to refrence. Break out Wikipedia and start bookmarking.

Please don’t write Bill as not knowing anything about human tools or basic mechanics. He’s watched humanity since the dawn of time; it wouldn’t make sense for him to not know about these things. He probably thinks that humans are pathetic and weak for needing such things to function in the first place, but he’s not going to be asking what people do to make babies anytime soon. (Seriously, he probably knows how people and animals breed.) It had been a long time since he’d inhabited a body in Sock Opera, so it’s safe to assume that he had simply forgotten what exhaustion felt like. Everything else he does in that episode can be attributed to him readjusting to the limits and controls of a human body or just hurting Dipper’s body for laughs/trying to keep the sleep deprived body he inhabited awake.

Try having him copy what other characters (like Grunkle Stan) say. It’s been done in the show.

Thank you for reading, and I hope this guide was helpful to you! If you have any additional advice, feel free to add on.

 Curios From The Background / Vol. 1 - Eighties Music Libraries  


My multiple-part Curios From The Background mix series is going to focus on my favorite examples of library/production music, lounge, and other forms of ‘mood music’ / 'background music’, alongside modern examples of their influence. While library music & lounge/easy listening have their differences, they share a kind of transportive, mood-setting vibe that blends together nicely, while they’re both often overlooked for the stigma around the 'easy listening’ phrase.

This first mix is specifically a look into the 80s era of library music. Library music is music that’s made to be licensed for use in media like film, TV & video, only accessible to ‘media production circles’ (x). Some back sleeves of these records even have short descriptions for every song (mood, theme, instruments, etc). Initial searches for 80s-era library music didn’t bring many results, but when I found the prolific Bruton Music label, owned by none other than Michael Jackson from 1982-85, I was led into both their diverse catalog and those of similar labels from the time. I found a lot of excellent songs on Youtube, ranging from energetic Russian exercise music to Eric Satie imitations, a few even combining the 80s’ signature kitsch side with somewhat unusual/futuristic sounds.

Okay DONT kill me

i have this headcanon that lance totally knows how to dance, and with dancing i mean he adapts to any music.

I mean imagine for a second: a little kid in Varadero, a tourist city 80% beaches, living with a big family of older brothers, sisters, parents and uncles who manage a beach bar. 

He’s raised around all kinds of dancing music from mambo, cha-cha-cha, or salsa to latin/tropical house and dance pop, both in spanish and in english, depending on who is manning the radio that day; when their parents tidy up for the day they pause from time to time to catch eachother and dance a little, tired but still in a good mood; lance, taken care of by his siblings while rinsing glasess and stacking chairs would totally love seeing them so animated. 

Back in his house the music would follow them; lance grows fond both of his grandparents’s and his siblings tastes, of seeing his big family at house parties dancing with eachother, and asks his mom to dance with him, standing on her feet or on his eldest sister’s arms.

As he grows older and takes an interest on girls, his sisters first tease him and immediately after give him this piece of advice: girls love boys who can dance (evidently it only accounts for the tastes of two girls, one in her teens and one already reaching twenty) but lance has already latched onto music AND girls, and learning to dance properly becomes a Serious Matter; he enlists his mother, in those pockets of time she is not working or corraling all the children in the house, or his aunts.

evidently such a big family all in one house cant keep a secret for the life of them, so soon everyone with any kind of experience on a dancefloor is taking this gangly kid and showing him how its done (each one arguing they do it better than the other, yes, Mario, you cant take two steps without tripping so let me teach the kid!)

So miraculously lance comes out of that gallinero with coherent pieces of knowledge, and puts them to use every time he can, the radio in the background while he helps at home or sitting in class, miming the steps under the table with the tune in his head, teaching it to his younger brothers and sisters…

The problem comes when he actually gets an opportunity to dance with any girl his age:

He chickens out.

While at home he feels at ease with dancing, knowing how to dance seems to be a source of cruel fun for his classmates, who vastly prefer other “cooler” methods of getting close to girls, and lance ends up with a bunch of very shy girls who dont know how to dance themselves and a beating from the other boys. After seeing his family dancing with boyfriends and girlfriends, husbands and wifes, he thinks that opinion is stupid, but silence is much better than another hit.

When anyone asks him if hes got any girl at his feet yet, he changes the subject as best as any thirteen year old can.

Music never stops being an important part of his life, even when he leaves for the Garrison, but dancing has taken a sort of background position when it comes to his free time. Hunk has seen him more than once fooling around in their quarters to every kind of music imaginable, and lance convinced pidge after MUCH pestering to illegally hook him up to Itunes from the other side of the solar sistem so he could get new music anytime.

And then dancing comes around again; first unauthorised party the cadets organise everyone is invited, no one is thirteen anymore, and lance discovers mostly everyone has a newfound admiration for his ridiculously big music collection and his dancing, even if that admiration doesnt extend to his flirting.

Evidently none of that matters when they are flung through a wormhole in order to fight and integalactic dictatorial empire, at least at the beggining.

One of the more peaceful days, during their downtime at the castle, Allura and Coran start bittersweetly reminiscing about their culture and sharing stories with the paladins: the food, the religion, the singing…

And the dancing.

After talking about late king Alfor leading allura around a ballroom in one if her first offcial galas, when allura asks innocently but somewhat sadly if there are any special dance rituals or styles back in earth, the response around the room is vague but positive, and lance feels a prick of annoyance, because the answer should be much larger than a “yeah, i guess”

lance has never been shy about oversharing, but music and dance are his family, his afternoons full of laughter and fumbling steps until he got them right, his mother feeling amused while his father caught her by the waist and convinced her to stop sweeping and start basic salsa moves around the bar. 

He thinks that maybe, a family memory for a family memory fair. He starts talking.

they all end up on one of the long unused ballrooms of the castle, now newly reilluminated and cleaned after the Arusian celebration, showing eachother different dance steps, using the ipod that traveled the whole galaxy in lance’s jacket poquet to help along. Neither pidge nor Hunk are surprised about how free lance seems while leading the princess around in a circle (after profusely swearing not to touch ANYWHERE suspicious, not unless you ask, princess–ouch!) but shiro, keith and coran might need some time to get accustomed.

Not that they have it, once lance gets in his head that shiro should totally know how to cha-cha-cha.

(everyone gets a good laugh and a bit of bonding out of it, so its good)
