I know I’ve been pestering everyone around here to WATCH this show and telling you how GREAT and PERFECT it is, it’s just I can’t get over it. I’m in awe at how great the writing in this show is, how diverse the cast is, and how they are addressing an array of issues in such a responsible and thoughtful manner. And they do all of that while singing beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, songs!
It’s so common to find posts here on Tumblr along the lines of “I wish there was a show that…”. And you know what? Almost every time I see one of those posts, I’m mentally answering: “But there is a show like that! It’s called Crazy Ex-Girlfriend!”
I think CEG delivered its greatest episode yet last Friday. I can’t get over how heartbreakingly beautiful and perfect it was. I can’t explain how much what they did means for people struggling with mental health issues. Just watch this video. Watch it, and then watch the show. I promise you won’t regret it.
I legit can’t write for anyone other than Peter now ahhh Hope you guys don’t mind xx

here, listen to this one,“ you insisted, handing Peter the headphones once
on, Y/N,” he replies, rolling his eyes with a sheepish grin on his face.
were sitting in your bedroom, listening to some of music you had picked out for
Peter. He wasn’t a music buff, but you demanded that he spend a few hours
listening to the music you recommended, and he’d do anything to see a smile on
he accepts the headphones and looks at you as he listens intently. Peter
pretends to understand the musicality of the song, but for the most part it’s
just sound waves travelling through his head. But if this made you happy, he’d
do it. Besides, it was a good excuse to spend time with you.
you asked as the song finished. "What’s your rating?”
On this day in music history: August 5, 1989 - “Batdance” by Prince hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 1 week, also topping the R&B singles chart for 1 week on August 12, 1989. Written and produced by Prince, it is the fourth #1 Pop and sixth R&B chart topper for the Minneapolis, MN born singer, songwriter and musician. Prince becomes involved in the “Batman” film project after being shown a rough cut of the film by director Tim Burton, who had been using “1999” and “Baby I’m A Star” as temporary music tracks while editing the film. Cancelling a scheduled vacation, Prince flies back home to Minneapolis and begins writing music for the film. Within a month, the artist composes eight new songs (only few make the final cut) for the film. The track “Batdance” is a song collage (featuring pieces of the songs “200 Balloons” (Batdance’s non-LP B-side), “The Future”, and “Electric Chair”) written and recorded overnight, using samples of dialogue from the film. Though it is not included in the film, the song is brilliantly utilized to market both the film and album. Released as a single on June 9, 1989, it is an immediate hit. Entering the Hot 100 at #53 on June 17, 1989, it rises to the top of the chart seven weeks later. The song is accompanied by an elaborately staged music video directed by Albert Magnoli (“Purple Rain”) and choreographed by Barry Lather (Janet Jackson, Tiffany). The clip features Prince in dual roles as himself and as a character called “Gemini”, half representing The Joker and the other half representing Batman, with the name being a nod to Prince’s own astrological sign. The music video earns an MTV Video Music Award nomination for Best Video From A Film in 1990. The single is also released as a 12" with extended remixes by Mark Moore of S-Express (Batmix) and William Orbit (Vicki Vale Mix). That 12" is reissued on Record Store Day on April 22, 2017, replicating the original sleeve design. Due to Prince having to sign over his publishing rights to his “Batman” soundtrack music to DC Comics, the company that owns the Batman franchise, “Batdance” has not appeared on any other Prince albums or compilations since the release of the soundtrack album. After many years, clearances are finally obtained from DC, and the single edit of the song is included on the posthumous compilation “Prince 4Ever” in November of 2016. “Batdance” is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
Concern is rolling off of Dean in waves, and underneath that is fear and desperation and a dozen different types of longing that, for reasons Castiel still doesn’t understand, Dean has never acted on.
Dean tells him it’s not that bad, that he just needs time, but no one is a good enough liar to make that one believable. Even if Dean were, it wouldn’t matter. Castiel knows exactly what Dean’s denial looks like.
He knows exactly how this is going to go, too, in spite of Dean’s protestations. He can feel the rot radiating out from the wound, spreading through his chest, crawling down his arms and numbing his legs. Time moves on, and the last thing it’s going to do is heal him.
Castiel gathers the last shreds of strength left to him and takes a deep breath. These will be his last words, and he wants to make sure they’re good ones.
He knows it’s cowardly to tell the Winchesters how he feels only now, when he knows it won’t cost him anything, when he won’t have to deal with the fallout. I love you feels strange and unfamiliar in his mouth, but he doesn’t regret not saying it sooner. The words scare them all, especially Dean. He can see it in the way Dean can’t meet his eyes when he says it. He recognizes it for the rejection it is, and some small part of him is glad he won’t have to live with that.
WARNINGS: ALL ABOARD THE SMUT TRAIN. Seriously, this is 9,000 words of absolute filth. NSFW, 18+, any other warning you can think of!!
