Not Feeling:

COIN - How Will You Know If You Never Try, Young M.A. - Herstory EP

i don’t usually make things about ships on this blog, despite the fact gryles is the blood in my veins, but i decided since this blog isn’t actually a daily news blog, or an update blog for nick, it’s just a blog that is only all about nick so i can post what i want. so here’s forty-two (42) gryles fics you should read.

picked undone, and again by biggerthanthesun
words: 37,389 / side: daisy/harry

“I need you to know that I… I want you all the time. Me wanting you and us doing this,” Nick says. “We’ve been weirdly steady for two people who aren’t even dating and I still want you more than ever, you know? I’m not even tired of it, I’m not even tired of you. You’re like a constant thing for me, I’m afraid I’m a bit mad about you.”

The one where they’re not boyfriends. Where Nick’s mad for Harry. And Harry was mad for Nick. Until he wasn’t anymore. (Canon-compliant).

“I feel I already know you,” he says, laughing.

Harry looks at him, surprised. Nick feels it too?

Interview: Justin Strauss with Joe Goddard

A founding member of Hot Chip, the 2 Bears, Greco-Roman Records and flying stag under his own moniker — he just dropped his solo record Electric Lines — Joe Goddard is considerately humble about his myriad of music-making accomplishments. Having produced some of the most sparkling, genre-defying electro-pop in the past decade and a half, he continues to flex his curiosity for sound through remixes and DJ sets. His is a wunderkind mind. For this episode of Just/Talk, renowned New York City DJ and music producer Justin Strauss sat down with Goddard to discuss the genesis of Hot Chip, his love for Destiny’s Child and what to do when there’s just too many good ideas. 

Justin Strauss: Can you tell me how Hot Chip formed and what inspired it?

Joe Goddard: Alexis Taylor and I had met each other when we were 12 at the playground at our school. We would eat our packed lunch and play football together. Owen from Hot Chip as well, the three of us, and a bunch of other people — our friendship group started that first year at secondary school in Southwest London in Putney. We became friends and both of us were already very passionate about music.

JS: What were you listening to? Was there a band where you both said, “Oh, you like that?”
