music is immortality

Mamamoo Appreciation

Alright, to all those who have heard about Mamamoo, seen them around and thought “hmm, they look nice I guess I’ll check them out one day”, I want to take this post to say, they are worth your time.

You don’t have to like girl groups, you don’t even have to like kpop at all, just music with a funky vibe, fresh summer sound and powerhouse vocals. I mean obviously it helps that these girls are such vibrant, passionate personalities, but if you’re not the type to obsess over groups, know that Mamamoo has a unique sound. Mixing retro and upbeat with modern vocals, harmonies and a clean production. Really though, their harmonies have been known to give eargasms so be warned. Their singles include Piano Man, You’re the Best, Decalcomanie and their most recent, Yes I Am.

As for the girls themselves, they could make even the coldest of hearts smile. They’ve been around for three years now, and are getting really comfortable as artists. They shine most when on stage, so make sure to watch them perform live. Even when they aren’t singing their own song, they manage to bring out something new and original to the table. Adding their own flavor to the mix. 

Check out some of their performances on Immortal Songs 2 such as : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrRbLFCFXBA and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cg-daQOgl4c

Solar is the leader and oldest member, so don’t let her adorably squishy cheeks say otherwise! (Her words, not mine!) She’s a true cinnamon roll here… One with a beautifully soothing and angelic voice. If you want to check her out, here is a link to one of her solos “In my Dreams” : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upCKk8u-5ZE

Moonbyul is second oldest in the group is designated rapper, and has a really poetic style. Really, she can tear you up. She actually used to train to become a singer, but after debuting was given very little singing lines and became quite shy about singing. Thankfully she’s starting to be given more to sing, and it’s great! Here is another link to Moonbyul’s solo song “Worthless” : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9ctTKDpQAg

Wheein is too cute for words. She’s a beagle, always energetic, always keeping the girls together and making them smile. Her voice is really stable and perfect for harmonizing. A link to her collaboration with Jung Key : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxQZ48TgqZk&index=22&list=PLM141ud-cWlwj-wTjGp09zJ24xMnpbdUc

Hwasa is the youngest member, but don’t let that fool you into thinking she’s the shyest! This girl is fierce! She’s full of charisma and passion and determination. She doesn’t fit the ideal standard of Korean beauty, but she looks amazing and she knows it. Her voice is rougher ad bluesier than most, and it works really well in the group. She can also rap. Here is a link to her solo “My Heart” : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=da_aQaMrqXI (Thank you parkjaehee!)

This turned out much longer than planned, but I can’t stress enough how talented this group is. Who knows, you might grow to love them.

Dance With The Devil

warning: this song is pretty graphic

to fully understand the story of the song

read the lyrics below while you listen

I once knew a nigga whose real name was William
His primary concern, was making a million
Being the illest hustler, that the world ever seen
He used to fuck movie stars and sniff coke in his dreams
A corrupted young mind, at the age of thirteen
Nigga never had a father and his mom was a fiend
She put the pipe down, but for every year she was sober
Her son’s heart simultaneously grew colder
He started hanging out, selling bags in the projects
Checking the young chicks, looking for hit-and-run prospects
He was fascinated by material objects
But he understood money never bought respect
He built a reputation ‘cause he could hustle and steal
But got locked once and didn’t hesitate to squeal
So criminals he chilled with didn’t think he was real
You see, me and niggas like this have never been equal
I don’t project my insecurities on other people
He fiended for props like addicts with pipes and needles
So he felt he had to prove to everyone he was evil
A feeble-minded young man with infinite potential
The product of a ghetto-bred capitalistic mental
Coincidentally dropped out of school to sell weed
Dancing with the devil, smoked until his eyes would bleed
But he was sick of selling trees and gave in to his greed

Everyone trying to be trife never face the consequences
You probably only did a month for minor offences
Ask a nigga doing life if he had another chance
But then again there’s always the wicked that knew in advance
Dance forever with the devil on a cold cell block
But that’s what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock
Devils used to be gods angels that fell from the top
There’s no diversity because we’re burning in the melting pot

So Billy started robbing niggas, anything he could do
To get his respect back, in the eyes of his crew
Starting fights over little shit, up on the block
Stepped up to selling mothers and brothers the crack rock
Working overtime for making money for the crack spot
Hit the jackpot and wanted to move up to cocaine
fulfilling the Scarface fantasy stuck in his brain
Tired of the block niggas treating him the same
He wanted to be major like the cut-throats and the thugs
But when he tried to step to 'em, niggas showed him no love
They told him any motherfucking coward can sell drugs
Any bitch nigga with a gun can bust slugs
Any nigga with a red shirt can front like a blood
Even Puffy smoked a motherfucker up in a club
But only a real thug can stab someone till they die
Standing in front of them, staring straight into their eyes
Billy realized that these men were well-guarded
And they wanted to test him before business started
Suggested raping a bitch to prove he was cold-hearted
So now he had a choice between going back to his life
Or making money with made men, up in the cife
His dreams about cars and ice made him agree
A hardcore nigga is all he ever wanted to be
And so he met them Friday night at a quarter to three

Everyone trying to be trife never face the consequences
You probably only did a month for minor offences
Ask a nigga doing life if he had another chance
But then again there’s always the wicked that knew in advance
Dance forever with the devil on a cold cell block
But that’s what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock
Devils used to be gods angels that fell from the top
There’s no diversity because we’re burning in the melting pot

They drove around the projects slow while it was raining
Smoking blunts, drinking and joking for entertainment
Until they saw a woman on the street walking alone
Three in the morning, coming back from work, on her way home
And so they quietly got out the car and followed her
Walking through the projects, the darkness swallowed her
They wrapped her shirt around her head and knocked her onto the floor
“This is it kid, now you got your chance to be raw.”
So Billy yoked her up and grabbed the chick by the hair
And dragged her into a lobby that had nobody there
She struggled hard but they forced her to go up the stairs
They got to the roof and then held her down on the ground
Screaming, “Shut the fuck up and stop moving around!”
The shirt covered her face, but she screamed and clawed
So Billy stomped on the bitch, 'til he broken her jaw
Them dirty bastards knew exactly what they were doing
They kicked her until they cracked her ribs and she stopped moving
Blood leaking through the cloth, she cried silently
And then they all proceeded to rape her violently
Billy was made to go first, but each of them took a turn
Ripping her up, and choking her until her throat burned
Her broken jaw mumbled for God but they weren’t concerned
When they were done and she was lying bloody, broken and bruised
One of them niggas pulled out a brand new twenty-two
They told him that she was a witness for what she’d gone through
And if he killed her he was guaranteed a spot in the crew
He thought about it for a minute, she was practically dead
And so he leaned over and put the gun right to her head

I’m falling and I can’t turn back
I’m falling and I can’t turn back

Right before he pulled the trigger, and ended her life
He thought about the cocaine with the platinum and ice
And he felt strong standing along with his new brothers
Cocked the gat to her head, and pulled back the shirt cover
But what he saw made him start to cringe and stutter
'Cause he was staring into the eyes of his own mother
She looked back at him and cried, 'cause he had forsaken her
She cried more painfully, than when they were raping her
His whole world stopped, he couldn’t even contemplate
His corruption had successfully changed his fate
And he remembered how his mom used to come home late
Working hard for nothing, 'cause now what was he worth
He turned away from the woman that had once given him birth
And crying out to the sky 'cause he was lonely and scared
But only the devil responded, 'cause god wasn’t there
And right then he knew what it was to be empty and cold
And so he jumped off the roof and died with no soul
They say death takes you to a better place but I doubt it
After that they killed his mother, and never spoke about it
And listen 'cause the story that I’m telling is true
'Cause I was there with Billy Jacobs and I raped his mom too
And now the devil follows me everywhere that I go
In fact, I’m sure he’s standing among one of you at my shows
And every street cypher listening to little thugs flow
He could be standing right next to you, and you wouldn’t know
The devil grows inside the hearts of the selfish and wicked
White, brown, yellow and black color is not restricted
You have a self-destructive destiny when you’re inflicted
And you’ll be one of god’s children that fell from the top
There’s no diversity because we’re burning in the melting pot
So when the devil wants to dance with you, you better say never
Because a dance with the devil might last you forever

She told me that there was a note for me, that was left behind
She had left it there waiting, for such a long time
I was inclined to ask about it but she brought it up first
I saw a tear swelling up in her eye, and then she cursed
She told me where the letter was and I started thinking the worst
Reversed my position, stepped over and opened the door
And sure enough there was an envelope with my name on the floor
“Nobody loves you more than me carino” is what the letter said

“By the time you get to read this, I’ll probably be dead
But when you left in ‘97 a part of me went to Heaven
I thank God at least I got to know what love really was
But it hurt me, to see what true love really does
‘Cause even though we never made love, you were all that there was
It was because I loved you so much that I had to make you leave
You made me doubt the way I thought, you made me want to believe
And then I slipped up, and I let you get close to me
It was hard to not be openly when people spoke to me
This was not the way I thought my life was supposed to be
Baby don’t you see, I had a blood transfusion that left me with HIV
Hoped the end exists for me since late in 1993
I died a virgin, I wish I could’ve given myself to you
I cried in the hospital because there was no one else but you
Promise that you’ll meet me in paradise inevitably
No matter what, I’ll keep your love forever with me”



What happened for the rest of the day is still a blur
But I remember wishing that I was dead, instead of her
She was buried on August 3rd
The story ends without a sequel
And now you know why Technique, don’t fucking fall in love with people
Hold the person that you love closely if they’re next to you
The one you love, not the person that’ll simply have sex with you
Appreciate them to the fullest extent, and then beyond
'Cause you never really know what you got, until it’s gone

My Love is God, Chapter One

Hi my name is Jason Dark’ness Dementia Raven Dean and I have long ebony black hair (that’s how I got my name) with purple streaks and red tips that reaches my neck and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Christian Slater (AN: if u don’t know who she is get da hell out of here!). [[I’m not related to Ryan McCarten but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m a vampire but my teeth are straight and white. I have pale white skin. I’m also a wizard, and I go to a magic school called Westerburg in Sherwood Ohio where I’m in the twelfth grade (I’m seventeeeeeeeeen). I’m a goth (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black. I love GoodWill and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a black trench coat with matching black skinny jeans and a black t-shirt and black combat boots. I was walking outside Westerurg High. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of Heathers stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.

“Hey JD!” shouted a voice. I looked up. It was…. Veronica Sawyer!

“What’s up Veronica?” I asked.

“Nothing.”She said shyly.

But then, I heard my slushies call me and I had to go away.
