watching this is us for the 100th time. the camping scene they r putting up the tents. li looks for the instructions they r in Swedish but H n N r like we r way too cool to read inst. lol n keep chattering about it showing off. meanwhile li works silently n as louis says"clocks it in 5 mins" that's the truest description of li. goes by the rules usually but if required he can solve any problem on his own intellect n works in silence in the background not asking for any recognition for his work.
Firstly, sorry if I what I say comes out as gibberish or more so than usual here.
You’re spot on. Especially re the recognition. Anyway first of all, here’s the clip btw. x Btw, I think its Zayn that says the 5 minutes line and of course he would. Probably so proud as he knew at least he and Liam would have a tent that wouldn’t collapse in on them in seconds. Ha. Anyway…moving on.
I haven’t watched This is Us for a long time but the camping scene is great for observing them all even if the rest is meh.
Here I go again harping back to the Sony Wikileaks but they were every bit as informative about the way Liam’s ‘personality’ was forced upon us as anyone else, although it was nowhere near as harmful on the face of it as the image foisted upon Zayn.
Caring,. Driven. Kind. Sensible. I mean none of them are bad qualities but man they dull him down and take away half of the man he is. I won’t repeat it but I definitely prefer Louis and Zayn’s descriptions of him.
I think from some instances we’ve seen particularly in the early days, he was a bit harder to loosen up and he perhaps had barriers up, no doubt at least in part with his school experiences and otherwise.
And I certainly don’t see him as someone who flagrantly breaks rules like you but when needed, he will absolutely take risks. Like he’s been doing for months, hell years, the ‘hate’ t-shirt on the first sighting of Payzer 2.0. This man is nothing other than highly bright, intelligent and smarter than even the smartest bear, never mind the most average.
And as for not seeking praise, so true. Liam and Louis have both resisted talking at length about their songwriting partnership particularly when in the company of the others.
I think he has quite rightly an innate confidence in his own abilities and therefore doesn’t feel the need to shout about it. His future within the music industry I feel sure will do all his talking for him.
Good job others will do it for him or speak well of him for our sakes at least. Influential people.
And yet when I did a search for ‘Musicians praising Liam’ all you got on the front page was ‘Liam is jealous of 5SOS success’ from all the usual suspect MM mouthpieces. Sad.
So yeah, Liam is damn intelligent, will adhere to rules but will never be afraid to stray if he needs to for those he loves (we’ve seen it for Zayn) and for his own sake. And he’s not the slightest bit arrogant. I wonder who we don’t know about that he’s made connections with here and in the US, the stuff he’s done off the radar. Can’t wait to find out one day.
