B.A.P and Tattoos

I would like to thank to @kitty-dae for some pictures and titles of their tattoo (Yongguk and Zelo). Daehyun one is mine which is I remembered his tattoo.

In case some BABYz didn’t know, I added pictures of their tattoo as a reference.

Yongguk:

“do what u like and luv what u do” (left shoulder blade)

“make art not war” (inside of right bicep)

“viva la revolución” (chest)

“portrait of zeus” (upper right arm)

Daehyun:

Fun Fact: Both of his tattoos are based from “One Fine Day”!

“Best Absolute Perfect” (on his lower back, which is I can barely see it.) BUT, this tattoo represents B.A.P! ^^

“HOLD” (on his right wrist). His tattoo represents BABYz! 

Zelo:

On this day in music history: May 15, 1976 - “Love Hangover” by Diana Ross hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week, also topping the Hot 100 for 2 weeks on May 29, 1976. Written by Pam Sawyer and Marilyn McLeod, it is the second R&B and fourth pop chart topper for the Motown superstar. With the departure of The Jackson 5 from Motown after the release of their album “Moving Violation”, producer Hal Davis is left without his top act after working together for five years. During this time he hears the original demo of “Love Hangover” in a Motown colleague’s office. Instantly excited about the songs hit potential, he cuts it right away. Recorded at Paramount Studios in Hollywood in mid 1975, it features musicians such as Joe Sample (keyboards), James Gadson (drums), and Henry Davis (of the band L.T.D.) (bass) playing on the track. Davis also comes up with the idea for the songs signature dual tempos, which the musicians are initially resistant to, but he convinces them otherwise. Shortly after, Davis plays the completed track for Berry Gordy who hears it as a smash for Diana Ross. Though initially, Ross doesn’t care for the song, but agrees to record it at Gordy’s urging. Upon arriving at the studio, Davis pours her a drink and they get to work. The producer has recording engineer Russ Terrana install a strobe light in the vocal booth to add some ambiance to the session, helping to put Ross in the proper frame of mind. The end results of which are heard on the finished record. “Love Hangover” is rush released as a single in March of 1976 when a competing version by The 5th Dimension is released on ABC Records just before it. Both versions enter the chart the same week on April 3, 1976, with The 5th Dimension’s version stalling at #80 on the Hot 100 the week of April 24, 1976, while Ross’ version soars to the top of the chart three weeks later. Ross’ version of “Love Hangover” also receives a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female in 1977. The song is also remixed twice, first in 1988 by Phil Harding of PWL (Pete Waterman Limited), and again in 1993 by Frankie Knuckles and Joey Negro for a remix album titled “Diana Extended: The Remixes”.

Marina Abramovic-Ulay, Breathing in/Breathing out, 1977

[“The two artists connected their mouths and took in each other’s exhaled breaths until they had used up all of the available oxygen. Seventeen minutes after the beginning of the performance they both fell to the floor unconscious, their lungs having filled with carbon dioxide. This personal piece explored the idea of an individual’s ability to absorb the life of another person, exchanging and destroying it.”]

Kiss - I Stole Your Love (Live)(1977)

Happy Birthday to my muse, Peter Cushing. 

This year has been especially exciting, hasn’t it? Your performance as Tarkin in 1977 has inspired so many people that they found it pertinent to reconstruct your visage and your voice, and pen your character into best-seller novels. The oddity of this postmortem summoning can be difficult to process, and if you were here with me, and I was tasked with explaining to you exactly what has been done with your body this year, I would find it challenging to put into words. 

You have gone beyond eternal. 

You are more popular with the young people this year, you know. So many new fans inspired by your work - almost every week I see a new drawing, fanfic, cartoon, or meme about you. At first it’s all about Tarkin, but soon they discover you, and you enchant and delight them, just as you have done to me

I never met you, so I hope you do not think me too bold when I say this, but I mean it: I love you, Mr. Cushing
