new composers

I know it’s easy to keep stereotyping Yoongi as cold/lazy/cut off kind of person but sometimes i think it gets to a point where it’s wrong and hurtful in the fandom. And so here’s a list of reasons Min Yoongi is a warm, hard working individual with a personality that is multi-faceted and beautiful.

  • was a member of the student council when he was in school and was always helping people who approached him and writing them encouraging messages, contrary to popular ‘bad boy’ image belief.
  • works into late hours of the night, even goes without sleeping when he’s concentrating on composing a new song/lyrics and spends hours on end in the studio
  • on that note, it is said he recorded the way he said ‘bulteorune’ about 200 times before he was satisfied with how it sounded
  • despite not being the lead dancer, is almost never criticized for his dance skills because he clearly works hard on it, whether or not he’s the best
  • again, a side note that he spent his birthday with hoseok practicing dance that hoseok taught him
  • his stage presence is full of energy and he even kneeled down and bowed for a good minute of stage when he knew his parents were in the crowd, and otherwise also displays emotions on stage, including crying
  • gets shy and touched when members throw him a surprise birthday party
  • extremely considerate of what fans think/feel, unlike a lot of other idols. he’s responsible enough to know the effect his words have on fans and therefore constantly promotes a healthy body image, saying he doesn’t have ideal an outfit/weight/height/personality type
  • that time he spent his own money to buy personal gifts/write different messages for 300+ fans on his birthday, and then did it again the next year too
  • branching off to the time when he got asked on a radio interview what he’d do with the royalties of the songs he produced (jump/tomorrow) and he replied that he’d take the band and stuff out for lunch with his own money
  • that time he bought all the kids in bts ice cream without asking and won them toys in AHL and they were so happy about it
  • that time hoseok wasn’t eating because he lost and yoongi said he couldn’t eat if his dongsaegs weren’t eating and that he was full just watching him eat, giving him his share of food
  • doesn’t care that he’s not a good singer and sings loudly and shamelessly when he’s in the mood
  • the new years day yoongi didn’t spend with own family just because hoseok was lonely in the dorms
  • that one time jungkook jumped on yoongi and hugged him and yoongi looked like he might just die from happiness
  • when he laughs when something is too funny and no noise comes out and he claps around like a seal and it’s so so adorable
  • said he likes smart girls who he could have long conversations with/hear her stories and she was good with computers
  • actually gets super flattered and smug when people find his sass funny
  • that time they were on running man and had to run for boxes and ran so fast he was far ahead of even jungkook
  • that time namjoon was supposed to perform on stage and yoongi was deadpan the whole performance until it was namjoon’s turn, and then he has laughing and singing and screaming and being super supportive
  • once when the members were just annoying jungkook a little and yoongi sensed jungkook felt a little sad so he wordlessly reached out to him and petted him and said ‘I think he’s adorable’
  • on that note, always sensing the members discomfort/sadness and being a silent supporter and saying encouraging things to make them feel better
  • never holds back of compliments. ever.
  • he is a wonderful, multi-faceted man with emotions other than being ‘dead inside’ and loves the people around him so much and is full of appreciation and support for them and endlessly a source of strength for them.

gifset per episode    Westworld “the bicameral mind” (ep.10 of season 1)  |  (second gifset of two)

“Since I was a child I’ve always loved a good story. I believed that stories helped us to ennoble ourselves, to fix what was broken in us, and to help us become the people we dreamed of being. Lies that told a deeper truth. I always thought I could play some small part in that grand tradition. And for my pains I got this: a prison of our own sins. ‘Cause you don’t want to change. Or cannot change. Because you’re only human, after all. But then I realized someone was paying attention, someone who could change. So I began to compose a new story for them. It begins with the birth of a new people and the choices they will have to make and the people they will decide to become. And we’ll have all those things that you have always enjoyed… Surprises and violence. It begins in a time of war with a villain named Wyatt and a killing. This time by choice. I’m sad to say this will be my final story. An old friend once told me something that gave me great comfort. Something he had read. He said that Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin never died. They simply became music. So, I hope you will enjoy this last piece very much.”

Années De Pèlerinage, Deuxième Année: Italie {1846} For Piano -  Sonetto 104 Del Petrarca, S.161, No. 5 

By Composer Franz Liszt

Françoise Buffet-Arsenijevic, Pianist

{SONNET 104 - I Find No Peace}

I find no peace, but for war am not inclined;
I fear, yet hope; I burn, yet am turned to ice;
I soar in the heavens, but lie upon the ground;
I hold nothing, though I embrace the whole world.

Love has me in a prison which he neither opens nor shuts fast;
he neither claims me for his own nor loosens my halter;
he neither slays nor unshackles me;
he would not have me live, yet leaves me with my torment.

Eyeless I gaze, and tongueless I cry out;
I long to perish, yet plead for succour;
I hate myself, but love another.

I feed on grief, yet weeping, laugh;
death and life alike repel me;
and to this state I am come, my lady, because of you.

Based on the writings of Italian renaissance poet and scholar Francesco Petrarca ( 1304-1374 ) 

bangtan be out there promoting, doing amazing comebacks, talking about problems, bringing everyone’s attention to important things, mental health issues, oppressive school regime, beauty of youth, composing, learning new choreographies, selling out tickets in 2 minutes, touring (almost) all over the world, and there’s still people that have the courage to not recognize their talents and talk shit abt them

Let’s talk about BangHim for a minute.

I’m having a lot of BangHim feels these days because of how much I miss Yongguk. I just wanted to let everyone know how MUCH I love these two. 

First of all, the name. BangHim is probably the most iconic ship name out there <3. But other than that is the immense amount of love and respect Yongguk and Himchan hold for each other. They’re the two hyungs of BAP and very close in age so its obvious they’re very comfortable with each other. They’re the mom and dad of BAP and will fight anyone who comes for their kids. 

Himchan knows how hard Yongguk works. How he doesn’t sleep without writing lyrics or composing new music. He knows the kind of shit Yongguk probably goes through when he has to deal with TS. Himchan knows. And I think that’s one of the very main reasons Yongguk is different around Himchan. Yongguk talks to him and lets him know. We all know Yongguk is big softie at heart but he puts up this facade or wall when he faces the world/industry to show hes strong, and he is very strong. But we all get to see that softness and HUGE gummy smile when he’s with Himchan. When Himchan makes a stupid comment or just simply exists tbh Yongguk just stares on and smiles. It’s really amazing. 

Then, we have Yongguk who truly appreciates Himchan for the person he is. When Yongguk is tired or unwell, like now that he’s taking a break for his anxiety, Himchan steps in. He becomes a temporary leader and manages the members well, and gives Yongguk the assurance that everything will be okay even if he’s not there. It’s a lot of responsibility to be the leader of a group, they probably get separate training for it in the beginning, but the fact that Himchan can so easily step into the position for the time being is mind blowing. It’s very subtle but we see it when they get an award, when there are mistakes in stages (Himchan apologized personally, for something that was out of their control), and making sure the boys are in line, so to speak. Of course, Himchan will always be the clown of BAP and it doesn’t seem obvious but he’s always watching out and encouraging and supporting the boys. 

Another reason I love this pair is because of the mutual acknowledgements of both their talents. Yongguk is an amazing rapper, song writer, composer, you name it. Everyone knows that, Himchan obviously knows that. Himchan’s talents aren’t as well known by the public but Yongguk sure as hell knows. Himchan’s basically a musical genius, he can play almost every instrument out there, and has perfect pitch (said by Daehyun), and has a such a beautiful and raw sound. Yongguk does his best to incorporate Himchan’s knowledge in their songs as much as possible, for example in No Mercy, they incorporated Korean Classical Music, an area Himchan excels in. And now in their recent albums, the increase in Himchan’s lines. 

Alright, this went from a minute to a few minutes, but it’s okay because BangHim is love. They’re amazing members, they’re amazing friends, and the’re brothers tbh. They’ll always support one another and have each other’s backs. 

Since I was a child, I’ve always loved a good story. I believed that stories helped us to ennoble ourselves, to fix what was broken in us, and to help us become the people we dreamed of being. Lies that told a deeper truth. I always thought I could play some small part in that grand tradition. And for my pains, I got this: a prison of our own sins. Because you don’t want to change. Or cannot change. Because you’re only human, after all. But then I realized someone was paying attention, someone who could change. So I began to compose a new story for them. It begins with the birth of a new people and the choices they will have to make, and the people they will decide to become.

Chanyeol couldn’t wait until his schedule for the day was over. All he wanted was to head back to the dorms and take a hot shower before composing some new songs. He had been itching to write all day and he just waited to get his ideas on paper before he lost his inspiration.
