it's always summer in the songs

On a summer morning
I sat down
on a hillside
to think about God -

a worthy pastime.
Near me, I saw
a single cricket;
it was moving the grains of the hillside

this way and that way.
How great was its energy,
how humble its effort.
Let us hope

it will always be like this,
each of us going on
in our inexplicable ways
building the universe.
—  Mary Oliver, “Song of the Builders”

anonymous asked:

What love songs do you think match your favorite ships?

Gency: The Score — Oh My Love. This song makes me think of their lives together as a whole. Through the good and the bad and how Genji would tell Mercy each and every word of this song. 

High Justice: Jon Pardi — Head Over Boots. A country soul feeling song to fit McCree’s undying devotion to Pharah. Simply how much he wants to be with his Egyptian Goddess queen. 

Time Dragon: Twenty One Pilots — Air Catcher. This is Hanzo’s inter conflict with falling in love with Tracer, his fear and want of her. In the end, he lets himself fall. 

Widowreaper: Five Seconds Of Summer — Vapor. Its a plead of desperation for the other to stay close and always remember each other. They only have each other now, and they can’t lose that. They can’t lose this love. 

Ana76: Jukebox The Ghost — Girl. It’s a reminder to Soldier 76 about how much love heals and how Ana is the only who can make him believe in such things again. How she brings him back to happier times where love is real. 

BunnyRibbit: Walk The Moon — Shut Up And Dance. Easily how they both are so fun and full of love. How they dance together so perfectly and are in awe of each other. 

Junkmetra: Jess Glynne — Hold My Hand. This song shows both how strong they are individually but how much they need each other’s support. Symmetra simply wanting Junkrat close and how Junkrat is always there for her.

Zen Hack: OneRepublic — Something I need. Sombra’s confession to Zenyatta. How he simply is what she needs. He’s become so important, that the one life she does live must be with him.

5SOS Throwing Shade at Abigail

Because its just come up in a recent interview(and because I think its funny) here is a bunch of times where they threw shade at Abigail because of the song she wrote call You Suck about Michael. 

When they were on with Kyle and Jackie O(Ashton said it btw)

Playing thw Yes/No game with Smallzy

Again with Smallzy

On the Shazam-A-Hang with Angus and Ash

And we can’t forget Michael’s tweets

Why don’t we add Luke and Calum in their as well?

And just for fun here is some shade that us lovley fans and friends pf the band had to throw 

And lastly my favorite of them all

Anyway I love this fandom and I greatly dislike Abigail Breastmilk.

Have a nice day.

ive found some more possible petekey evidence

so this is part of an entry from july 21, 2005 on pete’s personal livejournal

so all of this is super duper cute and fluffy and pete seems really in love with whoever he’s writing about, right?

why would this be about mikey? well…

x’d out on a calendar”

one of the songs that have been speculated to be about mikey is panic! at the disco’s “the calendar” (put another “x” on the calendar, summer’s on its deathbed) 

it also talks about certain futures (it’s always “when we’s” and never “if we’s”), something that pete and mikey never had, thanks to the fact that summer doesn’t last forever.

then, we go onto this one from july 26..

it’s a lot sadder, so i’m guessing that pete and mikey must have broken up in between july 21 and july 26th. but why would these even be about mikey? let’s see:

they’ve gotta be science fiction cause how else can you have a monster fall in love with a boy with no heart? actually i’m pretty sure you have a heart..”

whoever pete’s writing about = boy

we lit a fire that was nothing but smoke and hot air. ashes.”

you and i were fireworks that went off too soon..

in the middle here, pete talks a lot about how love is basically stupid, where just five days before he was saying how in love he was with someone. 

i’m just loose words hanging on the ends of your lips, even looser when i’m anywhere near your hips.”

the only thing i can directly relate this to is bang the doldrums (happily ever after below the waist) but WOW CAN WE TALK ABOUT GAY

and then ‘i’m sorry,’ too late”

oh, i’m sorry, i didn’t mean any of it (fourth of july)

pete mentions phone calls in this, something that he also mentions in bang the doldrums (i couldn’t bring myself to call, except to call it quits) and g.i.n.a.s.f.s. (some nights it gets so bad i almost pick up the phone)

i don’t tell you my insecurities so you can use them against me, but help me get over them.”

in february of 2005, pete attempted suicide. by the time warped rolled around in june, he had probably just started becoming more stable. since mikey was pete’s best friend during warped, pete probably opened up to him at some point (lyrics from g.i.n.a.s.f.s. “you saved my life”) and mikey might have helped him feel better.

i’m not really sure exactly what mikey did to pete that made pete so bitter, but it’s understandable that pete was upset (it was a doomed relationship and pete fell harder than he intended to, after all), but the lyrics that come to mind are “i’m starting forget what summer ever meant to you” and “sometimes before it gets better, the darkness gets bigger, the person that you’d take a bullet for is behind the trigger”

tl;dr: pete wentz was really in love with mikey way and then shit got fucked up and he was sad

100 Days of Productivity – 1/100

22 August 2016

I’m a relatively new studyblr but I’ve always seen these types of posts and its kinda inspiring so I’m jumping on the bandwagon!!! I feel like its a great way to get in the flow of things before senior year starts.

Today I woke up at 8 (honestly the earliest this summer vacation), created a to-do list, exercised, and just worked all the while listening to a pretty lit playlist. Senior year is stressing me out already but hopefully I can get a few things off my shoulders before the year actually starts.

Song of the Day: I Need a Forest Fire by James Blake ft Bon Iver

Fangirling (Joe Sugg Imagine)

Request: Can you make one about (y/n) fangirling over a member of 5sos and he gets jealous and such. It’ll be nice if its sweet and fluffy but not cheesy tho😂 Tysm ur Imagines always makes my day💕

—————————————-

You blasted out the new single from 5 Seconds Of Summer whilst watching the beautiful lads on your computer screen. Even though you were 21 you were kinda still a fangirl over 5sos, which sometimes annoyed your boyfriend Joe. You thought it was funny though, so you often played their songs when you hung out just to tease him, like you were doing right now. You were sat on Joe’s bed and was waiting for him to come down with some snacks from the kitchen. You could hear his footsteps in the hallway and he entered his room with an unsatisfied look on his face.

“What are you doing?” he asked which made you laugh before giving him a big smile.

“Ashton is looking so good in their new video,” you answered as Joe placed the snacks on his bedside table.

“Cool,” Joe answered, clearly not happy about that information.

“Awww look at him,” you said to the screen with a satisfied smile.

“So are we gonna watch that film?” Joe asked as he placed himself in the bed as well.

“Yeah in a minute,” you answered and you could see how annoyed it made Joe.

“I don’t get what you see in those guys. Look at that long hair!” Joe then said and you couldn’t help but smile.

“Are you jealous, Joe?” you asked, very amused over this situation and Joe instantly shook his head.

“No I’m not,” he then said and you couldn’t help but laugh. You closed the computer before placing yourself across Joe’s legs, facing him. You took his head in your hands before you placed a deep kiss on his lips.

“They’re a boyband Joe, and I will probably never meet any of them so you don’t have to be jealous, okay?” you said to him, still with his head in your hands.

“I’m not je…” Joe began to say but you cut him off with a kiss which made both of you laugh.

“I’m not jealous Y/N,” Joe then said, now with a laugh.

“Yeah right,” you answered before you crawled off of him. Before you got completely off of him Joe stopped you and pulled you back on top of him. He smirked at you which made you roll your eyes at him with a laugh.

“Don’t go,” Joe said whilst slowly pulling your head closer to his.

“If you admit you’re jealous I’ll stay,” you whispered towards his lips with a cheeky look on your face. Joe rolled his eyes at you with a laugh.

“Maybe a little bit,” Joe finally admitted which made you smile satisfied.

“Thank you mr. Sugg,” you then answered and to tease Joe you quickly jumped off of him and jumped off the bed.

“Come back you tease!” Joe yelled which made you look at him with a smirk.

“Then come get me,” you said before you jumped out his bedroom door with Joe following you. Teasing Joe had become on of your favorite things to do, because you knew that he loved it even though he would say he hated it. Before you got to the top of the stairs Joe wrapped his arms around you, twirled you around and began to place kisses all over your face which made both of you laugh loudly. You loved times like these when you and Joe acted like fools and ended up with stomach pains because of all the laughter. He was truly an amazing guy.

I believe that everyone has one of that song which always pops out in their minds. A song that you always play in every moment of your life, like a special song that always makes you remember that special person or things in your life. And this song is mine, my song of the day. Not a favourite song of all time, but lately this song often pops in my head. But seriously i feel like this song has its own special meaning to everyone who listens to this song because it happens to me. This song is just perfect, the lyric and everything. Temper Trap really did a great job. 

“A moment, a love, a dream, a laugh
A kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs.”

Happy listening!

Drake and Rihanna Dominate Spotify's Most Streamed Songs of the Summer List

Song of the summer is always up for debate as the weather gets warmer and people rely on artist’s to supply anthems for getting lit between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Of course, Rihanna’s ANTI track, “Needed Me,” also made the list along with her feature onCalvin Harris’ club-ready “This Is What You Came For.” Desiigner, Sia, and Fifth Harmony also made the list with their respective hits “Panda,” “Cheap Thrills,” and “Work From Home,” which recently earned the group an MTV VMA win for Best Collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign.

My mouth is not magnificent. It opens. It closes. It is home to wisdom teeth and unspoken apologies. It still struggles with saying, “It’s my fault. I was wrong,” but it practices the words in be. It has been learning acceptance speeches for imagined awards for over a decade. It knows what a dream tastes like. Its gums are rooted in desire. It is dripping with want. This mouth swallowed a summer of fear and spat it up into song. Put it in front of a microphone and it will surprise itself with how much it loves to scream. This mouth always feels like screaming. It wakes up in the middle of the night sometimes to find itself making the shape, with the room still noiseless and the roommates undisturbed. This mouth is so often not speaking. It is usually too busy quivering or smiling in the middle of a breakdown, because it once read that doing so would force the brain into thinking it was happy. This mouth forgets it is a mouth almost every morning. It is not magnificent. But it can go from wound, to burial plot, to weapon all in one conversation.
