music is a universal language

Six Years

Waking up this morning to all of the celebrations…. How is that strangers, and a band, can make me so emotional, so happy, so grateful? Because music. Because it’s a universal language, because it changes me, because it saves me, because it can break my heart and put it back together, all in the course of one song. I love this band, and I love this fandom. ❤️ Happy six years 🌈

victoria monét & ariana grande - better days

‘I’m heartbroken by all of the recent tragedies the came as a result of hatred, racism and injustice. I’m also sad at how numb some of us are to it, because it is far too common! This is not a video game or a movie you’re witnessing on your screens! This is our unfortunate REALITY! When I think about how I feel, the word confused comes to mind…So today we just want to try and help in one of the ways we know how! “Music is a universal language that all of us can feel regardless of color lines, gender, sexuality, age, race, religion…. it unifies us. We believe we can not fight hate with hate, only love. Just as we can not fight darkness with more darkness. Only Light.” #BlackLivesMatter

To all of the lives taken pointlessly, we will not let you be forgotten. You have sparked change in this world with your angel wings. Rest In Peace. Stay strong and know that better days are coming… 

#BetterDays
love, Victoria + Ariana’

arianagrande: During this challenging time, we have to remember that the only way we will progress is if the overruling force is #Love. “Music is a universal language that all of us can feel regardless of color lines, gender, sexuality, age, race, religion…. it unifies us. We believe we can not fight hate with hate, only love. Just as we can not fight darkness with more darkness. Only Light.” Too many precious lives were taken from us this week, this month, this year. Rest in peace #AltonSterling. Rest in peace #PhilandoCastile #BlackLivesMatter.
And the police that were peacefully guarding the #BlackLivesMatter rally in Dallas…. Rest in peace.
#LorneAhrens, #MichaelKrol, #MichaelJSmith, #BrentThompson & #PatrickZamarripa.

Stay strong and know that better days are coming…

                  You don’t go to a show because you think someone in the band is hot. You don’t go because they always wear this cool, awesome outfit, or have the right hair. Those things are part of what makes up the whole picture of the music… but those things wouldn’t compel you to spend your hard earned money on a ticket to spend a night watching those clothes or that hair move around for a little while. Music resonates with everyone, which is why we call it the “universal language". 

anonymous asked:

Since you're Korean do you get offended when people write bts smut or when non East Asians like kpop?

not at all!!!! omg no are u kidding

i think its amazing that people all over the world enjoy korean pop even tho they dont understand it. music is truly a universal language

it offends me when ppl generalize korean culture as kpop, or when they make assumptions about korean people and korea just based on kpop or dramas. thats being ignorant

and im not sure how ppl writing bts smut would offend someone korean LOL?

Stick To Your Guns - Universal Language

When violence is the only language this world comprehends
Don’t be surprised when it speaks in a way you can understand

Rated T because of Jack’s (Sean’s) language

University AU

Jack(Sean): Music and Video production Major

Signe(Wiishu): Arts “digital” Major

Summary: Jack wasn’t paying attention to where he was walking while practicing a new drum stick trick with one hand coffee in the other when he ran into a cute girl and SPILLED his coffee on her.

3rd Person POV:

   Jack was walking on the campus with his headphones blasting music, coffee in one hand and in the other his drumsticks. He was on his way to the food area to get some food before his next class in music, so while walking he practicing a new trick with the sticks to show off his mates in that class. Of course he wasn’t thinking when he started to walk that this might come back to bite him in the ass as his green hair fell into his eyes blocking his vision for a bit. Before he could move it away he crashed into another person making the both of them fall to the ground and the yelp from the other person indicated that his coffee opened spilling on its victim, “FOOCKING HELL!”

   Signe was talking a stroll around campus taking in the new sights in this new place she was entrusted into, sure she wanted to transfer but dang was this such a huge difference from her home back in Denmark, for one there was barely any sun here in Ireland. But she thought ‘it’s very pretty here, loads of fresh air and pretty scenery I could use to practice on my art.’ She was heading to the food area to see what kind of food the serve here that she could get in between classes and breaks, as long as they had tea she was ok. She was a bit loss in her own thought she didn’t see the person in front of her crashing into them. Down to the ground they went, all she felt was a burning liquid on her arm and leg with a loud shout coming from next to her.

    Jack picked up his drumsticks and now empty cup of coffee, turning to the person who he ran into feeling terrible for knocking them down. The person lifted up their head showing that he just ran into one the most beautiful girls he had ever seen. ‘Holy shiet she is gorgeous’ was the only thought going through his head. “Here let me help you, gosh I’m so sorry for crashing into you, are you ok, can I help you with something, are you hurt, do you need anything?” He asked her in a rambly worried fill voice, while stretching his hand out to help her up which she took. He pulled her up when she finally spoke, “Thanks for being so kind and helping me up, I’m ok now just a bit sticky from the coffee but I’ll be ok now worries. I’m not hurt at all just a bit dazed but it’ll pass, but I should ask you if you’re ok.” Her sweet melody voice rang out causing Jack to dumbstruck, “um um yeah I’m fine just really sorry about crashing into you I wasn’t paying that much attention was think about too many thing especially food.” Jack goofily smiled at her “I’m Sean by the way but my friends call me Jack,” she smiled back at him “Signe is the name but for those that can’t say my name they call me Wiishu, its an online persona.”

   They just stared at each other for a bit when Jack remember that he was heading to find food and they he still wanted to get to know her more. “Say as a way to make it up to you let me buy you lunch as an apologize?” Signe’s smile brighten up a bit, “sure that will be great thanks and maybe you can show me around this huge ass place.” Agreeing to that Jack lead the way to the food area where the two of them spend almost two hours talking until they had to rush to class, it was the best lunch in their eyes that included loads of laugh on both sides, puns from Signe, loads of cursing and yelling from Jack. After exchanging numbers they left to their own path knowing this was the start of a brand new friendship and even something else, they could both feel it deep down.


AN: This is my first time actually writing the two of them in a story so hopefully its not too much out of character

Yesterday was Minnie’s 7th birthday and she wanted to go see Rick Springfield. This is what the night brought and by far, Minnie’s best birthday EVER. This is how we ‪#‎celebrateyouth‬
Longfellow wrote, “Music is the universal language of mankind.” It’s why even sometimes when we don’t know all the words, the music can move our soul. Rick Springfield wrote, “The future of the world’s in the hands of children. So celebrate youth. Teach them right. Looking in a child’s eye, there’s no hate and there’s no lie. There’s no black and there’s no white.”
I can think of no more relevant words for our life and times right now. Thank you Rick for heeding the cry, for telling the truth, for making magic with your music, for celebrating youth and these precious lives. Thank you, Evan Bautista for being an incredible teacher, mentor and friend. The future of the world is in hands of children, thank you Rick Springfield and Evan Thomas Bautista for holding their hands and showing them the way. Minnie had the best birthday ever and we hope you enjoyed the cupcakes and gave one to Tucker even though he didn’t put your monkey picture up ;)

“Celebrate Youth” by Rick Springfield
I can see the older man
Looking at the younger man
I can see the younger man
Looking at the boy

Over there the older woman
Is looking at the younger woman
I can see the younger woman
Looking at the girl

‘Cause every man sees
In the younger man the hope
And every woman sees
In the younger girl the dream

Everybody lives
The pride and passion of the young
From the womb to the tomb
We will remember what it means

So celebrate youth (celebrate)
Those who have it (young ones)
Celebrate youth (celebrate)
Give them sight

The future of the world’s in the (celebrate)
Hands of children (young ones)
So celebrate youth (celebrate)
Teach them right

Looking in a child’s eye
There’s no hate and there’s no lie
There’s no black and there’s no white

I can see the older man
Sometimes in the older man
I still see the young boy
Burning in his eye

And locked up here inside our spirit
Is the child that we are, hear it
Some of us will always fear it
And some will heed the cry

But everybody sees
In the younger one the hope
Everybody sees
In the younger one the dream

Everybody lives
The pride and passion of the young
From the womb to the tomb
We will remember what it means

Celebrate youth (celebrate)
Those who have it (young ones)
Celebrate youth (celebrate)
Give them sight

The future of the world’s in the (celebrate)
Hands of children (young ones)
So celebrate youth (celebrate)
Teach them right

Looking in a child’s face
There’s no pride and no disgrace
There’s no struggle, there’s no fight

Everybody sees
In the younger one the hope
Everybody sees
In the younger one the dream

Everybody lives
The pride and passion of the young
From the womb to the tomb
We will remember what it means

Looking in a child’s eye
There’s no hate and there’s no lie
There’s no black and there’s no white

Celebrate youth (celebrate)
Those who have it (young ones)
Celebrate youth (celebrate)
Give them sight

The future of the world’s in the (celebrate)
Hands of children (young ones)
So celebrate youth (celebrate)
Teach them right

Celebrate youth (celebrate)
Those who have it (young ones)
Celebrate youth (celebrate)
Give them sight

The future of the world’s in the (celebrate)
Hands of children (young ones)
So celebrate youth (celebrate)
Teach them right

Celebrate youth (celebrate)
Those who have it (young ones)
Celebrate youth (celebrate)
Give them sight

The future of the world’s in the (celebrate)
Hands of children (young ones)
So celebrate youth (celebrate)
Teach them right

Looking in a child’s eye
There’s no hate and there’s no lie
There’s no black and there’s no white

@keefcross:So much going , when will the MC’s speak on it? (Respect to the ones I know that have always done it) Music is the most universal and powerful language. Can we stop catering to the club for five minutes to speak for the victims of the Billy Club, gun, and choke hold melody ? #balance
