Wolftember Challenge: Day 29

Day 29: Favorite Piece from the Show’s Soundtrack?

Alan Rodi is a God among men. 

I say that on a nearly daily basis, but it cannot be overstated. To make a podcast is human, to be Alan Rodi is divine

What I love about Alan (aside how how incisively smart he is, how he’s always one step ahead of me, and how searingly talented the bastard is) is how much his work teaches you about and informs the situations on the show. This music is not window-dressing. It does not just amplify. It defines, it builds upwards. Needless to say, it’s taught me a lot about what the show is and isn’t. 

Never more so than with this track. Eiffel and Hera, which Alan just presented as a variation on Doug Eiffel’s theme, immediately spoke to me on a visceral level, and it asserted itself as the tonal key to those two characters. Ever since Cataracts and Hurricanoes, their relationship has largely been what this song has guided me into understanding it is. It really is the sound of Eiffel and Hera, and the growing, shaky, unstable family that’s appearing around them.

please do not relate the song sleepover by hayley kiyoko to your straight crushes. it is a song about a GAY crush and ONLY a gay crush between two women. please so not turn it into just a "crush song" because this song is so so important to the wlw community and relating it to a straight crush/ relationship is really wrong.

I see what you are saying, but also, that’s also a very one-track minded thing for you to say. Music is different to everyone. Everyone understands music a different way. I mean, that’s what music is for. That’s like saying a gay person cannot relate to a straight song? See, it doesn’t make sense. There are still certain aspecst to every song that everyone understands, and can maybe relate to. It’s really wrong to limit music.

Again:

Music is for everyone, no matter how they look at it. Halsey, for example, says she knows everyone is going to relate to her music a little differently, understand it a little differently, listen a little differently. And that’s the beauty of music, being able to all connect as one, even as millions of different people. Please don’t limit that. Music is personal-and nobody has the right to tell someone how they look at it.

I can’t help how I see the song, I just know the song is beautiful, and that I really like it, and I find it relatable, and wise. I love listening to it, and again, I can’t help I how I think. And I can’t help what music I like, either. Telling me not to think of it as I do is like saying I can’t listen to it. I know it’s a lesbian song, and I know how much it means to the w/w community-I appreciate the song too, because it’s also a symbol of how far America is coming with LGBT.

Music in itself, no matter the lyrics, is a symbol of unity; why try and separate audiences based on their sexuality and what the song means to them, as long as they understand what the song is there to represent?

By the way, I’m still questioning my sexuality. And there are lyrics in the song that make me question myself even more. I can relate to a lot of it.

At least I got you in my head

That’s definitely a moving lyric for me. And the idea of the song about having these types of thoughts about your friends, and to me, with anyone, I guess, guy, girl, trans, and other orientations, is okay, I find that eye-opening, and validating.

Don't say stupid shit while on "hold".

My wife works at a call center for a big name appliance company.  They have a policy that customers cannot be put on hold for more than 5 minutes without a good explanation.  To get around this, the operators will often mute their microphone.  With this, you can’t hear them but they can hear you.  It’s amazing what people say when they think no one is listening.  Many customers self-incriminate during this time.  It’s all recorded and often used against the customer.  If you don’t hear music, the mike is definitely muted.

My Mom Thinks Im A Lesbian For Listening To Halsey

So, it started whenever she was telling me a story about a conversation she had at work with a customer. The customer and another person were talking about Halsey, and my mom said “Oh yeah, my daughter likes her.” and they go “Is she a lesbian?” and my mom answers back, “Not that I know of”. And what they say next, is infuriating. They said “Thats lesbian msuic.” NUMBER ONE YOU IDIOT, A TYPE OF MUSIC CANT BELONG TO ANYONE, AND TWO, SHES NOT A LESBIAN, AND YOU SOUND LIKE A MAJOR HOMOPHOBE. 

Then today, I was showing my mom peoples merch, and I showed her Halseys and she goes “Yep, that looks like lesbian clothes.” NUMBER ONE, LIKE I SAID, CLOTHES CANNOT BELONG TO ANYONE. I got really defensive, and she says “Oh my god, I dont even care anyways.” Like she was implying that she didnt care if I was a lesbian, and Im going to be completely honest; I may be half gay, but you cant just assume someones sexuality by who they listen to.

I dont know, I was mad and I just wanted to get that out there. Just because it is soooooooo frustrating.

It’s gonna be better this time I say as I walk inside the densely populated Hot Topic. Metal music blares and I am confronted by a person with a piercing in their eye. “What can I help you with? Everything is buy one get one free! :)” they say as a headache forms. I look and see on the walls t-shirts that say “rawr means I love you in dinosaur” and ones that have photos of doge on them. The deadness of these memes causes a piercing to appear in my nose and my hair to instantly turn black. I smell the deathly aroma of the hot topic unisex cologne and my jeans start to tighten around my legs. I cannot feel my toes. I limp to the back of the store violated and sickly. I trip on a loose assorted studio ghibli related item and grab for the wall. The only thing I can reach is a bring me the horizon T-shirt. I land on the ground as dozens of Panic! At the disco and My Chemical romance merchandise falls on top of my already bettered body. I suffocate under the shirts and wristbands and pins. I wake up days later only to find that I have aged backwards and was once again a 13 year old middle schooler.
