music that gives you feels

music genres are fake and made up anyway so here’s how i’m describing my music taste from now on:

  • music for witches dancing at midnight
  • songs that sad protestants would sing in a bar where for some reason people Only drink whiskey
  • summer indie pop songs that capture a fake rose-tinted view of adolescence never experienced but often romanticized
  • that distinct feeling some music gives you where you feel this like primal power like you’re channeling old and forgotten gods who are back for vengeance

that one moment you just know a movie has such an impact on you. just the music, the actors, the scenery, story, everything. when you feel chills and know that this movie means something to you. to feel so blessed that you are able to witness it for the first time, and then feel the same way every time you see it. it never gets old, it never goes out of style, it’ll always be the masterpiece you know it is. its one of the best feelings ever.

Okay, so I just saw a Tony and music headcanon which I absolutely and totally respect, because a classical music Tony is an awesome Tony that is a valid way of viewing the character.  However, I also completely and totally disagree with it and didn’t want to highjack that post to disagree.  Basically, fellow writer, you’re awesome and so is your headcanon which is totally valid and legit, but I’m gonna rift off it because I keep arguing with the post in my head.  

Maria started Tony on the piano at a young age.  Howard yelled and complained about how the kid could never keep still, so Maria taught him cords and basic piano warms ups.  She told him if he couldn’t keep still, he could go over the piano fingering in his mind.  He could even move his fingers if he needed to, going through the motions with his hands at his side as Howard ranted at him about how his latest robot was a failure, and keeping him still enough for photographers to take pictures of the engine while Howard put on his fake smile.

Tony would often hang in the doorway as his mother played and sang, hesitant to come in and interrupt her.  Music was numbers and frequencies and all sorts of things that were fascinating to Tony, but he couldn’t quite manage to fit them together into a song.  

It wasn’t until Maria came upon Tony struggling through “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel that she teaches him how to play music.  Maria the brilliant scientist who loved show tunes could explain to a young Tony Stark how to make music from the notes.  

From then on, Tony was a quick study.  He would often play as Maria sat by his side and sang along, from My Fair Lady to Evita, he would play and sometimes hesitantly sing along.  He fell in love with the quick wit of Cole Porter, often playing a quick bar or two and sing in a sarcastic tone when Howard railed on him for his failures.  Maria was always more fond of Irving Berlin, and he’d play “Blue Skies” whenever she was tired or angry.  

He always liked it when she played Rodgers and Hammerstein.  Sometimes she’d play “Impossible” from Cinderella when Tony felt like he couldn’t meet Howard’s high standards.  He was always mesmerized when she sang “Some Enchanted Evening” or “Something Good”. 

He sometimes thought about running away and working on Broadway.  He never had a way with lyrics, but he could compose a tune.  Surely he could find a partner and they’d create loads of shows that would become world famous.  But Howard would surely find him, so close to home, and the one time he tried to sneak off to the West End while visiting Aunt Peggy in London ended with her taking out a man who had been following Tony for nefarious purposes.  She was kind about it, but she had to take him home.  

Soon enough, he gave up on that dream and entered MIT, but he still couldn’t shake stealing away into one of the music shops and playing the occasional tune.  Some of the others found out about it and bullied him until he stopped.  But Rhodey could sometimes pull him away and ask him to play a song from The Wiz or some of the old Ella Fitzgerald jazz standards.  He also started to branch out at this time, coming up with piano versions of rock songs that he would play to make Rhodey laugh.

“Try to Remember” was the last song he heard her play before she died, and was always one of his favorites.  It was years before he could listen to the song again, much less play it.  Rhodey was the one who sat with him when he finally managed it, softly singing along even though he was never much of a singer because Tony couldn’t quite manage the words.  

Steve was shocked to hear old familiar songs coming from the Avengers common room one night when he couldn’t sleep.  He walked in to see Tony at the piano, singing some of the old Cole Porter songs.  Tony switched over to his own piano rendition of Highway to Hell as soon as he realized Steve was listening, but Steve had already found out.  After that, he’d sometimes join Tony, sitting at the piano and listening to the old tunes.  

It was during one of those times Tony admitted his mother had taught him, and he played “Try to Remember” for Steve.  It wasn’t one he recognized, but it had a soothing melody that made him think of Bucky, who he was still trying to find.  It was then Steve decided he could never tell Tony about what the Winter Soldier had done.  `Tony was finally in a place where he could play the song as a fond memory, and learning the truth would only cause more pain.  

After everything burned down, Steve only felt guilt when he heard the song or looked at a piano.  There were a lot of things he would never do differently, but not telling Tony the truth was a mistake.

After everything burned down, Tony sat at the piano, but couldn’t play.  He stared at the keys, but couldn’t will his hands to move.  When Rhodey would ask him to play, Tony would smile and say he was fine.

He’s always fine.

Sometimes Peter would hear haunting melodies of songs he had never heard before when he visited Avengers Tower.  He never found out where they came from, but he kind of liked listening to the old melancholy tunes before Tony finally showed up and gave him the latest upgrades for his suit.

Dear future lover,

I don’t care about what’s between your thighs

I don’t care about what others think of you.

I only care for what’s inside your ribcage
Because your heart is what I fell for.

But that’s not all I fell for.

I fell for your smile,
your unconditional kindness.

You’ll forgive someone a million times even when they don’t deserve it.

You overplay Mac demarco songs because we both love the nostalgic feel his music gives us.

You always pause before kissing me because you want to admire every strand of color in my eyes.

You tell me how beautiful I am when the sun creates a hair light behind me.

You’re always slow with everything, and that’s never bad.

Because you cherish everything.

You’re all I’ve ever wanted to have.
reasons to stay alive

- sunsets

- when it’s the perfect temperature outside

- the feeling of falling asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow

- music

- drinking water when you wake up thirsty in the middle of the night

- going for walks

- stars in the sky at night

- whole moons

- fireworks

- wearing your favorite clothes

- rain

- travel

- the feeling of starting a new book

- the feeling of finishing a book

- watching snow fall from somewhere warm

- a cold drink on a hot day

- the sound of crickets at night in the summer

Almost four years later I’m still fucking waiting….. @5sos get your shit together

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

SO, i know that the latest clip covers Even’s past and how he tried to end his own life. And i know that for most people this is such a hard thing to talk about.

I know, for people like me, it is infinitely harder, as i struggle myself with my mental health.

But i want you to know, that tonight, tomorrow, for every day of your beautiful life, you are not alone. People care about you. people want to hear you laugh and see you grow as a person. Do not ever succumb to that voice that tells you to hurt yourself, or take something as wonderful and valid as your own life.

Even tried to take his life. And he did not succeed. And he ended up with a beautiful boy and caring friends and 2am hugs with the boy he loves, he ended up with a life of smiles and long walks and playing Fifa and the joy of hearing music, feeling Isak’s hand in his.

So don’t give up. you have everything to live for. And yes, there is pain right now, there is a whole bunch of it, but you are stronger. Please stay strong and know that you have worth, no matter your gender, your sexuality, your race, anything. You deserve a life where you find things you enjoy. Do not let anyone take those things from you.

Do not take them from yourself.

People love you. Skam loves you. We all do.

You are not alone.

(lots of love from @fallingevaks and skam fans everywhere.)

nathmarx  asked:

Hi can you please recomend some youtube channels that post things about jikook? Im sorry about my english tho, thanks for your attention 💗

You won’t believe it I had like a whole list typed out and linked and everything and it just crashed cause I was being dumb ;;

So if it’s okay if I just type it out ;; But anyways, Jikook on YT is like my thing because I have no life

The three main channels, which, more or less got me into Jikook waaaay back when, were bfs2angel, Smirk Cookie, & yutensol90 (which no longer exists but I think there’s a replacement channel), so these are definitely must watches, especially if you want older jikook content–so their story right from the beginning ^^ Until this day, these videos make me feel the comfiest, and the fluffiest and I probably wouldn’t be in so deep if it weren’t for them so…these will be your senpais. So mad respects please.

As for the newer channels, which have been absolutely surging lately (WHICH IS GREAT BECAUSE IT MEANS OUR ARMADA IS GROWING) I can think of Kookmin World (everyone’s favourite rn), freshipping (viewer discretion advised but there some good shiet  ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)), taetaeisbae, BusanBoys JKJM (long ass videos which are good to watch before the night ends,…or anytime if you have no life like me), Jeon Jikookie, Jikookis Bae…and idk there’s a ton more that I can’t even list off my head. But these all regularly update and offer great analyses so definitely check them out.

And now, just a shoutout to my favourite jikook video editors/fmv creators:

  • suny-hye - trigger warnings and viewer discretion but there’s some goodstuff. i ’m surprised this channel isn’t as well known as it should be. the editing is absolutely phenomenal dough. it’s like. how.
  • byjungkook - these videos are my absolute favouritestestest and the music choice always gives you extra feels and the way there’s always jimin’s voice going “jungkook-ah~” incorporated always destroys me inside every time. 
  • &jiminn99 - similar to byjungkook; found this channel first though. very very nice and fluffy fmvs that just make you feel good :3 definitely a must watch

I’ll also share one of my current favourite jikook fmvs which is amazing by jungbaeri, which I already shared like…earlier in the week:

And that’s it. For now.

Now you guys know how I waste like…all my time ._. 

But thank you for asking these questions ^^ I’ve been waiting for a chance to give our YT Jikook community some attention and I guess I found it :) Please enjoy all their masterpieces and appreciate all the time and effort they put into making these because yes, it does take a lot of time to make it all so thorough and pretty for everyone :)

》 FAQ // Masterlist


The chirping of the birds outside mixes with the clamour of the busy streets surrounding your block of flats. You wake up to the growling of your stomach and look around. Round your bedroom, cardboard boxes of pizza, plastic instant ramen cups and cans of Cola are piled and mixed with worn clothes and college books and notes you’ve been earnestly taking. You rub your eyes - the sun has long ago risen and now shines brightly through window of your room.

It is Saturday. Saturday, as in the day of the week after Friday and before Sunday. Saturday, as in the sixth day of the week. Saturday, as in the day you don’t go to college and the day you spend doing absolutely nothing. You lazily exit your bed and make your way to the kitchen. The sink is littered with a bunch of dirty dishes and but you ignore the sight as you are already reaching to open the fridge. It is empty. You want to correct yourself – it is not empty, it has a bottle of milk and a few eggs, but nothing more than that.

You frown. “Eggs.”

For the past two weeks you’ve been eating nothing but cheap ramen and eggs, excluding a few nights you could afford to order a pizza. Boiled eggs, fried eggs, omelette, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, egg sandwich, egg in a basket, Chinese steamed eggs, Gyeranppang. If anything, college has taught you how to prepare eggs in 100 different ways.

Suddenly comes a noise from the flat next door and your stomach growls in response. Music is not the most wanted thing you want to hear right now. You’re starving and all you want is to eat something – anything – with no eggs involved. A buzzing sound of the vacuum cleaner joins the pleasant melody and the song only gets louder, but live vocals now present as well.

I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was,” you hear him sing the Pokemon theme, “To catch them all is my real test, to train them is my cause!” It’d be fine if he just sang the lyrics, but your neighbour seems to include the backup vocals, guitar riffs and drums throughout the whole bridge as well. If there was no wall between the two of you, you are sure you would be able to see him head-banging and throwing Pokemon balls at inanimate objects as well.

Alright - so I started this song a while back, and left it due to lack of whatever. So recently I went and reread some of the newer chapters and bam, I finally finished it.

Shay - you’ve created quite the world. Thanks for being such an incredible person and huge inspiration for so many people.
