Creepypasta #519: Once Upon A Time In Gumdrop Village

ADMIN NOTE: I will be overseas until 1st July. Creepypastas will still be posted, but submissions and Asks will only be replied to after then.

Across the meadow and straight ahead

There’s a gumdrop village where laughter is spread.

The teddy bear boys and rag doll girls

Play games and run and dance and twirl.

They drink mugs of hot coco and eat gingerbread pie

And giggle with glee as the fairies fly by.

And as the bubblegum day turns to blueberry night

They all skip to bed and snuggle in tight.

But this night is different and equally strange

For this is the night when the moon starts to change.

The milky white surface grows purple and brown

And spreads forth its tendrils and sends them straight down

To lurk through the forest and meadow and streets

Seeking the sweetest of after-dark treats.

The moon’s writhing tentacles burst into houses

Dragging away froggies and dollies and mouses

Coiling around ponies and velveteen bears

They lift them up screaming to their home in the air.

The victims are tossed to the purplish ground

As the roiling feelers thrash all around.

Teddies and fairies can scarce run away

‘Fore the ghouls and the goblins come out to play.

Corralling the darlings with pitchforks and claws

They shove them all wailing down the moon’s gaping maws.

Their shrieks and their screams soon die in the night

And the ghouls run away and the moon turns to white.

And the lemondrop sun brings the safety of day

And those who survived run outside to play.

They don’t cry or whimper or mourn all their dead

But decide to play tag and eat cookies instead.

One night of horror for a year filled with play.

It’s a terrible price but they’re willing to pay.

Watch Hans Zimmer melt faces at Coachella with the Inception score

On the line-up among chart-toppers and Pitchfork darlings at Coachella this year was super-composer Hans Zimmer, who nabbed an evening slot on the main stage backed by a full orchestra.

The crowd seemed pretty hyped to see Hans shred over some of his most notable scores, which included movements from the Inception (that chunky riff starts at around 2:20), The Dark Knight Rises, The Thin Red Line and Gladiator soundtracks (though this isn’t particularly evident in the video as the crowd sound was turned down).

Zimmer’s oeuvre got a kind of prog rock reworking live, with added electric guitar and thumping percussion.

The composer is currently targeting the geek dollar with a tour across the US.

Live performances of film scores are becoming increasingly popular, with Jonny Greenwood having performed his work on There Will Be Blood several times now in the UK.

Kendrick Lamar closed Coachella on Sunday night, you can watch excerpts from his performance here.

Scottish hip-hop is a thing — and it’s incredible

A lot of big names competed for this year’s Mercury Prize, the biggest music award in the U.K. Damon Albarn, of Blur and Gorillaz fame, was one of its frontrunners, alongside indie staple Bombay Bicycle Club and FKA Twigs, the heavily favored Pitchfork darling.

People were surprised, then, when a little-known Scottish hip-hop group called Young Fathers took home the prize for Dead.

And they’re not only ones making a splash

anonymous asked:

I have to buy a small bass head for college and was wondering if you had any recommendations? I'm not trying to spend too much so I'm using the cabinet part of an old 1x10" bass combo my dad had. I was thinking an Ampeg portaflex might do well. Also looked at some hartke stuff but wasn't impressed.

first things first: you’ll need to intercept your tuition deposit for fall semester and spend a significant chunk of it on a vintage ‘60s ampeg fliptop with the original jensen. real torn-up looking like it’s seen some shit, but it really sings. join some fuzzy-buzzy pitchfork-darling indie band where you wear kooky sunglasses or something at your shows. get gigs in brooklyn every other weekend and lie to your parents about how classes are going; fabricate countless excuses why “this isn’t a great week for you to come visit.” just really live the life for a few months. then when things inevitably fizzle out, you can jump right back into school in spring semester and then you’ll have a nice as hell classic portaflex in your dorm or apartment, which will do you way more favors than a hartke combo when you’ve brought a hot dude/lady back to your place and things could get consensually hot & heavy.
