tbh the man has been beaten down for a year, he can’t even show up at twitter… i’m very okay with people appreciating his work, even more if it was well deserved *shurgs*. Doesn’t mean he’s a flower and he didn’t make mistakes, but doesn’t mean everyone has to threat him like trash either. He’s human afterall.
okay but Keith getting hit by sudden waves of affection
He never really knows how to go about showing affection - it’s not like he really learned how to deal with it since he was tossed around from home to home. But with Lance, he just kinda. Flops.
Lance will be sitting in bed on his tablet or flipping through some Altean book and Keith will just climb into his lap and sit there until Lance wraps his arm around him. Or Keith will walk up to Lance after a training session and stand in front of him with soft, pleading eyes, and wait for Lance to open his arms up for him. When they’re in the lounge Keith will sometimes drape himself across Lance’s lap, nudging his head into Lance’s hand until he starts to card his fingers through Keith’s hair.
Lance used to pretend to be annoyed by it, thinking it would make Keith want to do it more, but instead, he saw Keith pulling back. Keith had thought he overstepped, crossed a line that shouldn’t have been crossed. So Lance started to pull Keith into his lap when he passed by, kiss his forehead, and push him back off, laughing at the shocked look on Keith’s face. Thankfully it worked - Keith started to show his cute, weird affections more and more. Now, Lance embraces it enough for the both of them - embraces Keith enough for the both of them.
I agreed to do too much. What I need… The thing is my inspiration for ‘danisnotonfire’ what I need is time and space because I’m an introvert, so even if I’ve been on like holiday with a bunch of people that will kind of stress me out a bit ‘cause what I need in order to be creative and calm down, is just to be alone. I need to be alone in a quiet place and sometimes that means I need to just like eat and read books and just think and look at tumblr for like two days just to recover, just to calm down, just to like dump all of my stress and stuff, so that I can breathe calmly. And then I need to just start from a blank slate and think 'what do I want to make a video about?’ and then you know I think of an idea, I come up with ideas, maybe it’s something I need to write, maybe it’s something that isn’t and then I think it through and then sometimes I hate it, I need to sleep on it, I need to wake up. 'Cause sometimes, I don’t think it’s good, I think it terrible and then I wake up the next day and then suddenly it was just sleeping overnight that gave me that switch that I needed. And I know that some, there’s so many YouTubers that can just bash it out, the thing is like I’m just not a good YouTuber in that sense, you know. Some people they might just be much more functional people that don’t have to deal with all the mental health issues. But for who… you know until I make changes in my life as I go along, just constantly trying to make things better for who I am, what I’m like, you know, this is just how it works.
The One Direction alum breaks a record for Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan signups.
Tickets for Harry Styles’ first solo world tour went quickly this morning, selling out in seconds across 29 markets, coming as no surprise to Team Styles, which had seen ticket signups far outpace demand.
That’s because by using Ticketmaster’s new “Verified Fan” signup program, the One Direction singer saw seven fans register in advance for every one available ticket on his 13-date tour of North America, breaking the record for fan-to-ticket signups on the anti-scalper initiative rolled out earlier this year. Styles also went on sale with 10 shows in Europe and six dates in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Japan. With registered U.S. and Canadian buyers able to purchase four tickets each, only a small fraction of fans will be able to see the singer on his tour of intimate venues, which include the Ryman in Nashville, the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and Radio City Music Hall in New York.
Styles is touring in support of his debut self-titled album on Columbia Records, set for release May 12. His latest song, “Sweet Creature,” hit No. 1 on the real time Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 chart shortly after its release on May 2. The song is expected to debut on the weekly Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart dated May 20 – a chart where Styles has already hit No. 1 with his debut album’s lead single “Sign of the Times,” and No. 4 with the set’s “Ever Since New York.” “Sign of the Times” also debuted and peaked at No. 4 on the Hot 100.
Styles is the latest artist to try out Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform, which requires fans to sign up in advance to purchase tickets, weeding out accounts created by scalpers, bot operators and resellers looking to flip the tickets for a profit. Asking fans to provide their name and email address in advance, Verified Fan uses a process similar to the two-step verification protocol used by sites like Facebook and Google to prove one’s identity. Both Ed Sheeran and Twenty One Pilots have used Verified Fan to power their tickets sales in recent months.
Styles’ decision to play smaller, intimate venues meant the ratio of fan signups to available tickets was higher than it’s ever been since Verified Fan rolled out earlier this year. Although Styles could have played much larger venues for his debut solo run, sources close to the artist say Styles chose smaller venues to give his diehard fans a more intimate performance of material from his new album.
“He wanted to do right by his fans and show them he’s serious about working his new album,” a source close to the Styles tells Billboard.
Styles kicks off his world tour Sept. 19 at The Masonic in San Francisco, wrapping up Oct. 14 in Phoenix before heading to Paris. - Billboard
Gonna meta analyze real quick but part one of The Get Down was from Zeke’s POV which is why we saw characters such as Mylene and Shao in such great lighting and effects, like how Shao started off as some mysterious, mythical figure on a quest doing back flips and always being back lit by the sun and Mylene as an angel with a voice from heaven, but when both characters get to know Zeke better and eventually these special effects stop being used as much and theyre scene more as humans and not idols. Also scenes where Zeke is not involved are heavily stylized (shaos meetings with Grandmaster Flash, the murder in the club, mylenes audition in the church, Dizzys experience at the club) because he’s imagining what happened.
Part two is from Dizzys POV which is more obvious because of all the comic art work bits and such but also shows his thought process. Dizzy also had a ton of fantasy scenes in this part, which he didn’t have when the show was from Zekes POV Dizzys speech and actions are more understandable to the viewer in part two because we can see how he views others and such but is just as fucking weird . He doesn’t romanticize people as much as Zeke does but instead fantasizes events and places (Ruby Con, the Club, the party in Jackie’s Room with the drag queens , even prison) . This also explains why there’s a ton more obvious queer subtext when it comes to Shao and Yolanda in part 2, because Zeke didn’t pick up on the little things that Dizzy did.
Blue: So how did you finally win Adam Parrish’s heart?
Ronan: Well, Sargent, it went something like this: - *counts on fingers* - first, I dragged him behind my car, then I insulted his girlfriend (that was you - sorry, bro), then I beat up his dad, then I paid his rent without telling him, then I slept on his floor and THEN I showed up at his work with a ten-foot monster bird and asked him to help me blackmail our latin teacher-
Blue: That went well, I take it?
Ronan: Well no, he kicked me out, so I broke into his car and left him some hand lotion and a mix tape with only the Murder Squash Song on it.
Blue: I have a vague memory of that tape.
Ronan: It worked! So I took him to see some cows, then we went shopping and I crashed a grocery cart with him in it-
Blue: Gansey never did that to me.
Ronan: See, you need to know how to pick’em. Anyway, there was a slight snafu in a church
involving some bodyparts in an envelope and my own bloody corpse, but we got through it, it’s all good. I went on to produce a hooved supernatural child who eats everything in sight -(he adores her, it’s really sweet), acted as his personal chauffeur during an evening hunt for the Devil, then took him to do a little frolicking in a magical woods where I gave him a nervous breakdown by revealing that said magical woods came from inside my head-
Ronan: - *glares* - He got over it, alright?! Anyway: finally, on my 18th birthday party, after accidentally calling him a shithead, I sent him upstairs to my bedroom for some aluminum foil and there, I kissed him on the mouth after playing a little too long with a toy car and presto! One Parrish-Lynch coalition in the bag!
