one of my favorite records of all time

So today I’ve been full force with getting together my final theories and just reminiscing on all the years I’ve spent watching this show. I think we all can agree that us fans have had an extreme love/hate relationship with this show. There’s been so many ups and downs with plot holes and irrelevant storylines but overall this is one of my all time favorite shows. Every week I would get excited to watch the show and analyze everything I could to try and put the missing pieces together to get some answers. As much as I’m going to miss this show I think we all need this finale to finally have some closure and for our own peace of mind. So with all of this being said I just want my final theory summed up to have on record. I believe Ezra is AD and Twincer has been his sidekick in all of this. I won’t go into too much detail but that’s my overall last and final theory. To any PLL fans feel free to message me with your final theories, thoughts or reactions from the finale.

hhhhhhey idk if ur still takin brightshipping prompts but,,, can u do one with chocolate??

im always taking brightshipping prompts for the record i love them more than i should

“So, what’s your favorite kind of chocolate?” Micah asked innocently.

“Uh, I don’t know? Regular milk chocolate?”

Micah revealed a grocery shopping bag. “I bought them all.”

Lloyd laughed and grabbed a Hershey’s kiss. “From me to you.” He tossed it at his boyfriend.

Micah caught it. “Just this? You are weak. Watch this.”

Micah took two pieces of white chocolate, a piece of dark chocolate, and put them together like a sandwich and ate it.

“Oh my God. Why??”

“Why not?” Micah challenged.

Lloyd leaned over and kissed him. “Tastes like chocolate.”

Micah laughed. “Dork.”

Billboard: Niall Horan Braces for Stardom Outside One Direction, With Advice From Justin Bieber & The Eagles

When Niall Horan decided to move from London to Los Angeles in early 2016, it’s no surprise that he chose a house in Laurel Canyon, the epicenter of ’60s folk-rock culture. Horan was the one ­toting a guitar in One Direction, the British boy-band juggernaut that was just then going on a hiatus, and he’s got the soul of a singer-songwriter: He’s charismatic, witty and sensitive, but also easygoing and no-nonsense. Viewed alongside his bandmates – born rock star Harry Styles, “sensible one” Liam Payne, “funny one” Louis Tomlinson, moody R&B prince Zayn Malik – Horan, 23, is sort of like the middle brother: the most ­approachably handsome, the second-most popular across social media (29 million Twitter followers; 19 million on Instagram) and the most likely to lust after a gig at the historic Los Angeles rock club The Troubadour. “Playing for, like, 500 people. What more do you want?” says Horan. “I’ve had some good moments with screaming ­teenagers, but I like when the room is completely dead. It’s a ­different kind of respect. People are actually listening.”

“Reading was like an addiction; I read while I ate, on the train, in bed until late at night, in school, where I’d keep the book hidden so I could read during class. Before long I bought a small stereo and spent all my time in my room, listening to jazz records. But I had almost no desire to talk to anyone about the experience I gained through books and music. I felt happy just being me and no one else. In that sense I could be called a stack-up loner.”

Luv U Better
LL Cool J
Luv U Better

LUV U BETTER - LL COOL J (2002)

LUV U BETTER was the leading single from LL’s 9th studio album “10”. The song became a massive hit in the US reaching the top 5 of the HOT 100 and topping the US R&B chart (something he hadn’t accomplished before since I NEED LOVE in 1987)

“10” is a masterpiece, one of my favorite records..

Things I really wouldn’t mind in season 15: a Church that is not dead and stays that way.

Things I could really do without in season 15: yet another season about Church, finding him / reviving him / killing him, etc.  Had enough, thanks, hard pass.

Seriously, though.  Church shows up in episode 10 (like you do).  No one is shocked by this, they’ve been through this shit before.  He gets a couple of nods, a hug from Caboose and a pat on the back, maybe Tucker tries to punch him for being an asshole, and that’s it.

“Don’t you guys want to know how I got here?”

“Kinda busy right now, dude.”

“Wai-you… but.  ….Really?  No one is curious.”

“Heard it before, Church.”

“Okay wait a-no you haven’t, this is different, I’m-”

“Don’t have time for it.”

“But I was totally badass, okay, saving the fucking day and bullshit, you can’t just not care-”

“Too busy, asshole.”

And Church spends the rest of the season sulking in the background.  And that’s it.  That’s all he does.

"I've always been bad" cut to the nerdiest poet ever to appear on tv

I made the weirdest giggle snort when I saw this in my inbox. 

Fun fact - there was one summer where I was stuck in a tiny, tiny town in Nebraska with very little to do. We’re talking the kind of town with one restaurant, one grocery store, and two bars- all located on Main St. I’d brought a VHS tape with me that had Fool for Love recorded on it and… well…

I had that entire episode fucking memorized by the time we went back home.

I seem to have two main types when it comes to characters - awkward heartfelt nerds and villians who want to redeem themselves. So learning that Spike was secretly a love struck dork who wrote really bad poetry was like ~a chorus of angels singing~ moment for me. 

I just want to take him and wrap him up in a blanket.

Originally posted by marilynmay

One of my favorite parts about Spike were the moments where we saw flashbacks to his life before Sunnydale. Because when you put those pieces together, he repeatedly comes across as a man who is deeply insecure, constantly seeking the approval of others despite behaving as though he’s above that sort of thing. He was a human who only wanted to be loved and accepted despite knowing he didn’t fit in. As a vampire, he couldn’t stand Angelus and yet looked up to him like some twisted father figure who he wished would see him as an equal. He completely dedicated himself to Dru as if they were soulmates and yet that level of devotion was never fully reciprocated. And eventually, he reaches a point where that same desire to find somewhere to belong, somewhere to fit in, applies to Buffy and her gang. It’s an ill-fitting transition that hits of a lot of bumps in the road, but it’s there all the same.

I also appreciate him as a character because he makes the Buffyverse’s line between good and evil really blurry. With Angel, it’s a relatively simple dichotomy - he has a soul, he’s good. He doesn’t, he’s all-out 100% sadistic evil. But with Spike, he’s kind of caught somewhere in between. Even as a demon-driven vampire, he feels sympathy. He has the capacity for kindness. He tries to offer comfort. He holds the safety of the Summers sisters above his own survival. And at the exact same time, he’s still making morally questionable if not outright despicable choices because he’s still a soulless creature… I feel like the writers didn’t always strike the right balance between the two, which made it feel as though they weren’t exactly sure what to do with him. But the fact that that grey area existed in the first place is really interesting to me in a show that is all about good vs evil. 

I know you probably weren’t expecting a rant from a little joke ask like that but… well… here ya go. 

I suppose it’s a consequence of having not talked about a fandom you were intensely into for years… it all kinda spills out at once.

Zinn’s Secret Underground Lair / Laboratory - The Falls in Maguma Jungle, Guild Wars 1

Zinn was one of my all time favorite NPC’s in the original Guild Wars. His interactions, especially with G.O.X. always made me laugh. After completing the new Flashpoint achievement to find all of his recordings… I couldn’t resist popping back into the original game to pay him a visit.

I think I broke my zipper? | The Music of Harvey Beaks

In the episode “Rock Bark Rocks” Harvey attends his first rock concert and accidentally finds himself caught in a mosh pit. This short chaotic scene  reminded me of myself during my first punk shows as a teenager in Los Angeles (It was The Ramones, The Damned, and The Dickies on separate occasions at the Hollywood Palladium). There is a certain level of character building that can only come from getting kicked in the head to your favorite music– and a sense of hope that can only come from falling on your ass in a mosh pit… only to be rescued by a swarm of disembodied hands reaching down to pick you up.

I thought to myself, “Why can’t Harvey be stuck in the pit while one of my favorite punk bands is playing?” So I reached out to singer of the seminal Los Angeles punk band, The Dickies (The inimitable Leonard Graves Phillips) and asked if he wouldn’t mind singing on a 30-second song I wrote. I sent him the instrumental music and waited. A few days later I get a 5am text from Leonard with the following lyrics:

I got OCD. Don’t you pick on me.
Zipper. I think I broke my zipper.


I’m not one to argue with genius. I’ve admired Leonard since I was a kid. I told him it was perfect and a week later he was in my studio recording these very words. I just love that he sat there listening to my song and these were the lyrics that popped in his head. Life is absurd. I love how it came out and so honored to have this tiny connection to my favorite wobbly-voiced musician. Incidentally, this song is far from featured in the episode, it goes by very quickly and it’s low in the mix, but that’s why I put these videos up with the full volume mixes.

THE DICKIES formed in 1977 and are one of the greatest melodic punk bands of all time. Truly underrated, although they did have some much deserved success with the cult film “Killer Klowns from Outer space” and most recently, on the soundtrack to “KICK ASS” with their Banana Splits anthem. Enjoy!

Chris Cornell was one of my favorite vocalists of all time. ‪When we were recording Fallen, I would sit in the car in the studio parking lot every morning before going in and warm up my voice to‬ ‘Fell on Black Days.’ I loved how deeply soulful he was- it was such a beautiful and unique combination between his bluesy soulful wailing and the dark, heavy music. It was so much cooler than just screaming, which would have been the more obvious match to the music. That’s what made it special. They changed what metal was to me. Expanded the boundaries…
There have been way too many tragic, early deaths in the music industry lately. Why are we so lost? Cornell moved and inspired so many people. SO many…

For now my thoughts are here: No one is immortal. Everyone feels the pain. No one has a perfect life. We have to remember our fragility- that of the people we love, look up to, even our enemies. You never know what people are really going through on the inside, so we must take extreme care. And love the best we can, while there’s still time.
“I’m only faking when I get it right…” Oh, how I’ve always related to that line. Knowing you felt that way made me stronger.
Farewell to another hero. Thank you for sharing your heart, your search light soul with us.

We’re Good

Request: You and Shawn are dating, but you don’t like Camila and you get jealous so you’re very lovey dovey whenever Camila is around––happy ending / “How long have you been standing there?”

a/n: thank you all for being so patient with these updates!! I’m really trying my best to crank them out and balance my school life + social life!! You all rock I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!

Your name: submit What is this?

Going to the studio and just sitting in on one of Shawn’s sessions was always one of your favorite things.  You didn’t want to have a career in the entertainment industry, but seeing the process of everything behind making an album captivated you since the first time you saw Shawn recording.

           You sat on the outside of the booth with a table full of snacks that Shawn requested.  Playing on your phone, or scrolling through social media, was what you did while you listened to him.  He was in the middle of recording some vocals for a piano ballad he wrote.  His voice was your favorite thing to listen to and it soothed every part of you.  You couldn’t hear the music he was singing along to, but from hearing the verse he was singing, you knew that this would be your favorite song off his next album.

Some protag headcanons I wrote at 2 am

Minato is really the most open with his depression. He kinda stopped caring if people knew or not. The notion of nihilism at first provided comfort but soon began to envelop most of his waking thoughts. Similar to the movie, the dark hour is one of the few things that have gave his life meaning and he’s conflicted on letting that go or not

Souji tries so damn hard to hide his emotions and very few people ever get him to open up. He firmly believes that people only care for him for the support he provides and for the masks that he wears. The moment people realize he’s not the perfect honors student and friend that they believe and want him to be they’ll leave him. Souji can’t let that happen

Akira is just full of an impatient rage. His efforts to be the good samaritan left him with an assult on his record and feeling empty. He’s fed up with the world and just wants to get back at it. Conflicting emotions arise when he starts to consider if he’s acting as a phantom thief to save others or to satisfy his needs for revenge or as a way to channel that anger. The world turned him cold while simultaneously setting him ablaze

A/N: One of my favorite requests I wrote, it was previously posted on axstheticminds.

You rolled on to your side, pulling the covers over your head. It was Monday, the oh so very dreaded Monday. You grabbed your phone from underneath your pillow and automatically jumped out of bed when you saw the time. You had a perfect record, which included never being late. 

You stumbled into the bathroom, and instinctively reached for the box, containing a fresh pair of contacts, you shoved your hand all the way into the box, when you remembered; the ones you ordered wouldn’t arrive until later on today. You hazily looked through your drawers till you finally found the case you had been looking for. 

You ran through the doors of the BAU, you we’re on time, which was the most important part. You kept a steady pace as you walked to your desk with your head down. You had already felt a couple of stares from people around you. The piece of plastic resting on your face was not something you were used too. You could still see black frames, but more importantly you could see. 

It was bath enough having to wear glasses, but you didn’t even want to imagine what would happen when you would run into – “Oh my god I am so sorry” Spencer.

You ran right into him knocking the files out of his hands, your face turned red from embarrassment. This would only happen to you, on today of all days. You quickly bent down to pick up the papers that scattered all over the floor. Spencer couldn’t keep his eyes off of you, you felt the way his eyes searched your face. 

You were still insecure about wearing your glasses, even around the people you saw the most. You remember when you were little constantly being teased about something new. You could just hear what those people would have to say if they saw you walking in.

“I didn’t know you wore glasses,” Spencer said as you handed him the files you had in your hands. “Yeah, I don’t”

“Well they look nice, you look nice today, I mean you look nice all the time, but I have never seen you wear glasses, you look nice” he said running through his words.

It was hard to not fall in love with you; it was even harder to keep that a secret from the rest of the team. Even though he never said anything it was more about what he did. Constantly giving you books to read, sitting with you on lunch, always making your coffee just how you liked it. But lately he’d look at you a little bit longer, try to talk to you about anything, and on several occasions done some of the nervous rambling trying to cover up the things he said.

“Thanks Spence” you said with a smile on your face. You began to walk away when you ran into Morgan who had been around the corner the entire time. “Hey you” you said surprised.

“I didn’t know you wore glasses?” he said in a puzzled tone.

Before you could realize where he was going with that comment you said “Yeah, I don’t.”

“They look nice, you look nice today, you look nice all time” you started walking away shaking your head as soon as you caught up.

“Hey pretty boy, that was cute, but you should just ask her out, like on a date” Morgan said walking up to Spencer.

“What, no, why would I—“

“Because you like her, I see it, Penelope sees it, Hotch talks about it, JJ tells Emily about it, just do it”

Morgan looked at you as you walked away, “Go get her pretty boy”

Wonder Woman Review

Alright I just got home from seeing Wonder Woman, a movie that I’ve been anticipating for most of my life. Before I go into my detailed thoughts on the film, I want to preface them by saying this. 

I have been a die hard DC fan for most of my life, and have been looking forward to a DC Cinematic universe for most of that time. In the last few years we’ve seen the DCEU expand the world of the DC characters with films that, in my honest opinion, have been some of my favorite films of all time. Needless to say, I have been hyped for this movie for a very long time.

With all of that being said, I LOVED WONDER WOMAN. God this movie was so good. Gal Gadot did an amazing job as Diana. There wasn’t any minute of this movie where I felt bored. It was such an emotional film, and the performances all around were terrific. From Connie Nielson to Chris Pine, I loved the entire cast. Idk if right now I can say that Wonder Woman is my favorite DCEU movie but it’s now one of my favorite movies of all time. It sends such a hopeful message to the audience, and it seriously made me tear up. 

I can’t complete this review without giving credit to Patty Jenkins, she did such an amazing job with this movie. I’m so happy this movie and Patty are getting so much love, and it’s well deserved. Thank you Patty Jenkins, thank you DC, thank you Zack Snyder for finally giving us the Wonder Woman movie we deserve. 

I’ll be recording a full review tomorrow morning so I can go into more detail about the things I enjoyed but until then here you guys go! I hope you all enjoy the movie as much as I did!

85,000+ likes in the first two days is definitely a record! I think this is one of my all-time favorite photos because of how candid it is. 💑 Just look at Happy Cait, all tucked in snuggly under Sam's armpit with his arm wrapped around her. That's the Hubby-hold for sure. It's intimate, possessive, comfortable and natural, like they've sat this way a thousand times before. 'Just friends' my 🍑. It's waaayyyy more than that.💍🚂💨💨

You know why I really like this short message Jack recorded long time ago for us? Because every time I watch this it feel like video from friend. He cares so much, you can hear this in his voice and movement. It is recorded in this angle, from hand that it all is more personal and seem like something just for you, only for you. I really wish Jackaboy could make more things like this. That’s why Pokemon go is one of my favorite. That’s why I love watching video where Jack is showing to us his room.

There is no one else. Me and him. It all just feel good. Maybe because we can see this other side of Jack? Which I really love.

I am so sorry I am this sentiment little poo sometimes. Does this make even any sense what I wrote? I hope it does.
