Prog aesthetics
  • Genesis: Renisance paintings, fields of wildflowers, old abandoned mansions with overgrowth, Greek mythos, old decorative bibles, the smell of hot herbal tea, early mornings, fresh dew on a spiderweb, makeup, large elaborate fountain sculptures, and the sound of the wind rustling leaves as they fall
  • Emerson Lake and Palmer: smashed guitars, large cities at night, dusty church organs, metropolis movie posters, elegant gilded swords, old sifi novels, old alcohol bottles, the smell of cinnamon, bruised knuckles, sunsets, the smell of summer air, and the sound of a forest in winter
  • Yes: the ocean, iridescence, mountain air in the early morning, water lilies, greenhouses, the smell of the sea after a storm, holding hands, glittery capes, fae, ripples in a cup of water, elegant lace dresses, warm raspberry tea, daisies in the early morning sun, and grainy mermaid footage
  • King Crimson: large abandoned castles, old music books, smeared crimson lipstick, crowns made of gold and rubies, velvet robes, gold flakes, the smell of autumn, the sound of leaves crunching, baroque shattered mirrors, elaborate gilded daggers, red candle wax on a skull, the smell of insense burning, shattered crystals, blood soaked books, torn midevil tapestries, and empty parlor rooms with nothing but old broken furniture and paintings on the floor
  • Pink Floyd: Light shows, prisms, torn up money, the smell of old cigarettes that linger years after one was ever smoked, mushrooms, silhouettes, vintage postcards, erupting volcanos, broken walls, abandoned factories, the smell of an old book, dusty rooms, big fuzzy wool sweaters, and decorative tobacco pipes
  • Rush: the night sky, old science textbooks, silk kimonos, skeletons, the desert, the smell of new technology, dusty Ayn Rand novels, the sound of music through an old radio, the smell of an old maple table, the Canadian tundra, apples, smashed synthesizers, gears, grandfather clocks, and carved statues of trees

Voltron Characters as dumb stuff me and my brothers have done

Keith: genuinely believed pickles just existed on their own and didn’t know until they were 18 years old that you have to pickle a cucumber to get a pickle (also didn’t know you could pickle other things)

Lance: touched random bottles of spices and hot sauce on the table then proceeded to rub their eyes and cry in the middle of a Denny’s at 11 o'clock at night

Pidge: did the cinnamon challenge, but instead of only using a tablespoon, dumped the whole container of cinnamon into their mouth and immediately began vomiting

Shiro: got so mad that no one ate leftover food that they combined all leftovers in the fridge in the blender and forced everyone to drink mixed up pizza crust, pork chops and taco meat

Hunk: tried to fit a twin size sheet on a full size bed using push pins (not safety pins, PUSH PINS) and then proceeded to jump onto the bed and watch in horror as the pushpins flew everywhere

Allura: sucked so much at word games like Boggle and Scrabble that they started to make up their own words, and when someone asked if it was a real word, they opened a dictionary and read off the definition of a completely random word

Coran: had a meltdown at a Burger King inside of an airport and screamed so loudly that everyone around them stopped talking, “I ASKED FOR NO F*CKING CHEESE ON THIS HAMBURGER AND THEY GAVE IT TO ME ANYWAY. I WILL NEVER EVER EAT AT THIS F*CKING BURGER KING EVER AGAIN AND I WILL ONLY EAT AT THE BURGER KING IN SOUTH LAKE TAHOE BECAUSE THEY MAKE MY FOOD MY WAY

Zarkon: requested to roll to shit another character’s pants in DnD, then proceeded to roll a 20 and shout “IT’S A CRITICAL SHIT

Haggar: got so mad at a level in Super Mario Galaxy 2 that they literally ripped the game out of the Wii and drove 20 minutes to the nearest GameStop to sell the $60 game to them for $2

Lotor: made a drawing of our lord and savior Jesus Christ as a Sonic character for an art gallery
