Translation: stop texting me

J: (..) its like ten people in one apartment and they’ll play russe-songs* to get the mood right
MG: russe-songs is fucking pumped up like *mimmicks beat*
MH: ‘let us play a russe-song’ kinda?
MG: they do that on the parties I go to. The girls are totally crazy
J: it’s so often it’s not right with russe-songs where they play russe-songs. You get that, right?
MG: okay, then what do you wanna listen to?
J: I don’t know, if I’m going to a party i wanna listen to some hip-hop, like 90’ shit
MH: Nate Dog
J; yeah, Nate Dog!
MH: he’s awesome
MG: who’s Nate Dog?
J: “who’s Nate Dog”
MH: are you serious?
MG: I haven’t heard anything by Nate Dog
MH: do you know who Snoop Dog is?

J: what’s up, man?
I: nothing, I guess
J: nothing? Anything new with that Even guy?
I: no. Or… I got a new drawing.
J: a new drawing? What’s his deal?
I: I don’t know. He’s… all over the place.
MG: what are you talking about? Are you talking about Even?
MH: what’s going on between you two?
I: nothing’s going on. He’s got a girlfriend.
MG: and he’s also pansexual?
I: I don’t know
MG: and one more thing I’ve thought about sorry if it’s rude but homos, when they have sex. Who’s the guy and who’s the girl?
*J and MH sigh*
MG: what?
I: it’s funny that you ask because I was actually going to ask you the same question, when you have sex who’s the guy and who’s the girl? Then I remembered, you don’t have sex.
J: holy fuck, wow, where did that come from?
MG: it wasn’t that bad a question, was it? I was seriously curious about it

J: but completely honest, I feel as if you let him play you
I: play me?
J: like, he keeps it going but nothing happens, and he’s still dating that girl
I: yeah, but like I can’t control him
J: yeah you can! If you’re like, totally straight up. You send him a text like hey dude, stop with that stuff
I: “yo dude, stop with that stuff”
J: alright, maybe not that but… okay, stop texting me, call me when you’ve broken up with your girlfriend. Straight up. That’s what works.
MH: and if he really is interested he’ll get stressed. We’ve all been there
J: exactly. If you have a thing with a girl, or you wanna hook up with her, but you don’t want anything more,- relationship with her, but she sends you what’s up? I’m fucking tired of you not taking us seriously’ then you get serious at once, you’re not gonna fuck more with her
MG: just when they don’t answer your texts, like they’ve seen your text
J: yeah, but they’re just snakes. Girls who doesn’t… *keeps talking in background*

Text from Isak: hey, thanks for the drawing, but if you’re not interested in anything more just forget it. Call me when you’ve broken up with your girlfriend.
I: I just did it. I sense the text
J: no?! What? That’s not bad!
*all cheer*
J: that surprised me
Text from Even:
What are you doing right now? Can we talk?
MG: was that him?
I: he answered ‘what are you doing right now, can we talk’
J: seriously?
I: what am I going to answer?
MG: call him
J: no, don’t call him! Write: chilling at home
I: chilling at home?
MH: yeah that’s good
I: chilling at home, just call me
J: no, you want him to call you but you have to write it like you don’t want it. Understand? So just wrote 'chilling at home’, and done
I: chilling at home, smiley?
J: no! Chilling at home, done! No feelings, straight up
I: sent

J: he will call
MG: check if it’s a bubble, like he’s writing something
I: no bubble, he won’t answer it’s just how he is
MH: he might be somewhere he can’t speak right now
I: maybe

MG: you’re wearing my shoe!

I: hey
E: hey

*russe-song is a type of upbeat party song

“We met online.”

How was the first date?

“We went to a movie. Typical. Then we went to a bar…”

“And now we’re here.”

Why choose city hall to get married?

“Because we want a million dollar wedding and we’re not millionaires yet. That’s in the future so we’re getting this out of the way.”

If you could have your first dance right now, what song would play in the background?

Lana Del Rey. Video Games

Describe each other in three words.

“Amazing. Passionate. Beautiful.”

“The love of my life, I mean that’s not one word but it sums it all up.”

All Hail the Well-Crafted Romance

Honestly, if only all romance stories were such delicious, slow-burn, carefully constructed journeys! 

Most of the time we only have the faintest sense of why two characters are drawn to each other, and mostly it’s “he’s the protagonist” and “she’s the only female character in this story, shrug emoji”. They look at each other from across the room, and boom, done.

Love stories have a basic shorthand, and they require very little in-text justification. A conversation between a male and a female character, and maybe one minor shared interest (”oh look! They both like books!”), and you’re good to go. You don’t need to lead an audience along very much to get them to expect on a heterosexual romantic subplot. Just play the right song at the right moment and everyone gets the message.

But wouldn’t they be so much better if they didn’t rely on the shorthand? If they actually took the time to show us why these characters are drawn to each other?

Meanwhile, Sherlock and John’s relationship is being built before our eyes brick by brick.

Just Hold On only has 13K Shazams.

While we’re all streaming the song on Spotify etc, can everyone please go right now and spend two plays of the song shazaming the crap out of it? Even if 20 people Shazam 100 times each, that’s a huge increase!

Ah, the first kiss like noticing how late the evening got only to be surprised that you didn’t miss the sunset. You still have an opportunity to sear this moment into your memory, kinda like scratching your favorite cd but still trying to play it knowing that it’d skip while whispering your favorite song right back to you, a most needed stutter between lips and lips, whisper those lyrics back into me– I’m waiting for you to come back to me, for that second kiss right after the first and then the third kiss right after the second just in case we messed up all three, fuck it, baby, kiss me again. Fourth times the charm, we’ll break clichés. Ah, the first kiss like a foggy day, but you’re the only streetlight– flickering, flickering, flickering, and flickering. Pop. Just like that.

How to Download Songs Off of Tumblr

So say I’ve found a great song on Tumblr that I just can’t live without and need on my phone. Today our example is an MP3 of every time the name Hamilton is said in Hamilton the Musical because that’s the kind of quality content I want on my phone. I digress,

1. To start out, find your song: 

2. Next, right click on the song and click on Inspect. (Use Google Chrome)

3. This will open up a tool bar along the bottom that developers use for stuff. What you want to do is click on the Network tab and then the button that says Media. If you don’t click on media you will get a whole bunch of other stuff that you don’t really need. 

4. Next, play the song and it will pop up in the panel. Right click on it and click Open Link in New Tab

5. This will take you to a new tab that is essentially the MP3 able to be played through your browser (Google Chrome). Right click around the song until you get a drop down list of commands and click Save As. Finally, enter what you want to save the file as. It will download and you can drag it into iTunes. 

And voila, now I’m a proud owner of every time Hamilton is said in Hamilton the Musical. Pretty cool, huh? This is great for downloading weird edits that people do, another one I considered for the example was It’s Quiet Uptown Funk. :P

Rules: using the list below, create a fanmix for your sim-self, then tag as many blogs as you’d like to do the same!

My Shot (Layered)
  • My Shot (Layered)
  • Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anthony Ramos, Daveed Diggs, Okieriete Onaodowan, Leslie Odom Jr. & Cast
  • Audacity Files

This is a simple layer of “My Shot” from the Hamilton soundtrack. It involves delaying the beginning of the track which plays in the right ear until after some part of the song has played in the left ear. This causes similar parts of the song which are at different times to play at the same time, highlighting similarities in the song structure.

The Bar Scene

okay okay, I know every Stucky shipper is familiar with this scene, but I’ve decided to investigate in furthur detail.

So the singing stops as Peggy walks in, looking as gorgeous as ever, eyes only for Steve

Bucky’s immediate reaction is a clenched jaw

and a balled fist.

I’m not saying he’s jealous or anything but of course he’s fucking jealous.

At first glance, people may think that Bucky is jealous that Peggy isn’t paying attention to him, but I don’t think so.

Peggy proceeds to talk to Steve and

need I say any more about this?

At the end of the scene, Bucky makes a “joke” which I think was meant to disguise what he was really feeling. When Steve turns away, he makes this face:

And to finish up, I’d like to talk about the song that was playing right before Peggy walked in: “There is a Tavern in the Town” (thanks to brxkenbucky​ I was able to look into this). Now I know it’s difficult to hear the song in the scene, but if you look up the lyrics you’ll see that some of them are:

“He left me for a damsel dark, damsel dark // each Friday night they used to spark, used to spark // and now my love who once was true to me // takes this dark damsel on his knee”

Very fitting, right? And remember that songs played in movies are chosen specifically to suit the scene. Everything is intentional, just like every reaction and facial expression.

I’m just going to leave this here, take from it what you will.
