If you were a rapper: He would be so proud of his girl and would also be your biggest fan. You two would occasionally have rap battles to show off your skills and see which one of you is better.

If you were a dancer: He would always ask you for advice because he would be completely amazed by your skills. Would shamelessly promote you everywhere. 

Jin/Kim Seokjin

If you were a drummer: No matter how often you played, every single time he would be impressed as much as the first time. Would try to play the drums whenever you were out but after failing miserably he would just stick to cooking.

Suga/Min Yoongi

If you were a rapper: Another reason for him to love you more. Both of you would stay up till late in the studio writing lyrics and coming up with new rhymes. 

Park Jimin

If you were a dancer: Whenever he had the chance he would ask you to dance for him as he loved seeing you in motion. Ever since he saw you dancing he immediately thought that he would love to do a collab with you and has been secretly coming up with the dance moves.

If you were a drummer: Would keep asking you to play him some sort of beat so he could practice his rapping. Even if you declined his requests more than accepted them he would still love seeing you completely devote and lose yourself while playing. Would often compliment you and your skills.

J-Hope/Jung Hoseok

If you were a dancer + rapper: Long intimate dance practices. Loves trying out couple dances with you. Whenever you were too tired or lazy to practice he would immediately come up with a rap which pumped you up sometimes resulting in a showdown between you two.

A/N: I don’t know if you wanted all of their reactions to being a drummer, a dancer and a rapper but I decided to split it among the members, hope that’s okay!! Anyhow, feel free to request more scenarios, reactions etc., I keep up with a lot of groups both male and female!! 😃

On this day in music history: March 25, 1978 - “Bootzilla” by Bootsy’s Rubber Band hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week. Written and produced by George Clinton and William “Bootsy” Collins, it is the biggest for the Cincinnati, OH based R&B/Funk band led and fronted by bassist and vocalist William “Bootsy” Collins. Bootsy writes the song after he gives “Flash Light” away to friend George Clinton for Parliament to record after he decides it’s not right for his own band. Inspired by his own outlandish sense of humor and his larger than life flashy image, “Bootzilla” is the nick name Collins gives himself after his fellow musicians call him “a monster” for his musical prowess. The basic track is recorded at United Sound in Detroit, MI, with Collins playing bass and drums himself. It is released as the first single from Bootsy’s third album “Bootsy? Player Of The Year” in January of 1978. In an interestingly ironic twist, “Bootzilla” replaces Parliament’s “Flash Light” at the top of the R&B singles chart.

Okay but guys remember how Viktor revealed that the part where the drums start is the part where Viktor became Yuri’s coach in the previous episode?

That just made the song so much deeper for me. 

The first part where only the piano is heard, represents when Yuri was all alone and depressed and lacked all confidence.
Then, Yuri meets Viktor, and the drums start playing. Notice how the piano starts to get so much more upbeat and how perfectly it flows along with the drums? That is the part where Yuri really starts to develop himself as a person; the moment Viktor came into his life. 

And then, the drums leave for a moment, and the piano suddenly get’s so much slower. I feel like this represents Yuri being alone with his thoughts again, trying to figure out why he was suddenly feeling so “upbeat”and happy, because it confused him.
Then, as the piano starts to pick up the pace again, that is the moment that he finally begins to realize: his true feelings for Viktor. His feelings of love. 

Then, the drums kick in again, Yuri opens up to Viktor about his feelings and Viktor “meets him where he is”, playing along with the pace the piano is already in to create the most beautiful music. 

Together they create such a beautiful harmony. The piano and the upbeat drums.  Yuri and Viktor. Yuri on Ice. 


On this day in music history: March 25, 1972 - “In The Rain” by The Dramatics hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 4 weeks, also peaking at #5 on the Hot 100 on April 22, 1972. Written and produced by Tony Hester, it is the biggest hit for the Detroit based R&B vocal group fronted by lead singers Ron Banks and William “Wee Gee” Howard. The track is cut at United Sound in Detroit, MI in mid 1971, and features a number of prominent Detroit musicians such as Michael Henderson (bass), and Funk Brothers Dennis Coffey (guitar), Johnny Griffith (piano), and Uriel Jones (drums) playing on the rhythm track. For the songs’ distinctive echoed guitar, Coffey uses a Maestro Echoplex pedal between his guitar and amplifier. The unit which creates the effect by recording the sounds put through it on a magnetic tape loop. A control knob allows the speed of the delay to be manipulated by varying the speed of the loop and distance of the playback head. Released in February of 1972 as the third single from their debut album “Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get”, it is another smash. Like title track, “In The Rain” quickly becomes a pop radio hit on the heels of its R&B chart success. “In The Rain” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

oneguyonegirlonelove  asked:

I was just wondering, you tried to play piano and didn't like it and you play the drums but have you ever tried to take on another instrument? (Really love being part of this community. Everyone's so nice and supportive)

I tried Guitar before any of those and when I was super young I played recorder (damn well too) but the instruments that have notes and chords etc. never appealed to me. I’m more of a bang bangy man

a long post about the message of the blurryface era

all the blurryface music videos (and heathens) seem to be pretty different from the rest but all of them have the same theme, which is that connection with friends is the best way to cope, and no one is really alone.

heathens/heavydirtysoul - these two music videos parallel each other closely as i talked about in my last post. both start with tyler in a dark and unfamiliar place. he is sad and withdrawn. then, he sees josh. josh is drumming furiously and doesn’t notice tyler. 

in both music videos tyler is represented by dark motifs (rooms, clothes, etc.) while josh’s motifs are glowing and bright. heathens - he’s drumming on a glowing box, which eventually becomes the stage on which he and tyler play. heavydirtysoul - his drums spark flames with every hit; they grow larger and eventually consume tyler as well. 

both videos reach a climax in which tyler and josh interact with each other for the first time. the light (heathens) and flame (hds) grows to a blinding maximum and the two are rocking out together. josh is no longer ignoring tyler. tyler is no longer withdrawn; he is interacting with josh and for the moment his anxiety is gone. it’s a release but it’s not a painful one. he is coping. 

and then in the end everything is back to normal - no yellow suit, no light, no flames. tyler is still there alone. blurryface is as present as ever. and the implication is that he has imagined josh. this is why josh didn’t notice tyler both times. he was merely an attempt for tyler to find someone to relate to. a cathartic figment of imagination. an imagination of light that tyler hasn’t found yet. 

and what these songs mean in relation to the videos is clear. “all my friends are heathens” - there are so many people here going through the same thing as me, and while the general public considers us freaks, we are all here together and ready to stay that way. “can you save my heavydirtysoul” - implies desperately trying to find a way out of the situation. imagining salvation so fervently that it manifests as almost reality. salvation, here, is josh and the flames. 

lane boy - this one is kind of similar to heathens and heavydirtysoul in that it starts with tyler, alone and contemplating, in the dark. but this time he’s worried about what he has done to become successful, and whether it’s good enough, and whether fame will change him and limit him. all these worries are new to the band, because they’re at the beginning of their rise to fame at this point. and in the video the dark road in the woods symbolizes that they’re in the dark and they’re being careful. stay low they say. 

and then they’re playing on a stage, and everything is forgotten, and they REFUSE to stay low. if you notice in the video the moment tyler sees josh on stage, that is the moment he breaks his silence and starts to dance. to me this video represents that even though not everyone in the crowd might like what the band is doing, and even though there are critics behind that stage and out in that world, being able to play in front of thousands, together, tyler and josh, is worth it. at the end of this video is the realization that having each other means much more than success. 

stressed out - i think this video illustrates the point the most obviously, but it does a great job handling the dichotomy between wanting to grow up and not wanting to grow up. obviously tyler and josh would rather hang out with each other, with no responsibilities, and make music without having to worry about how it is going to be received. and part of the music video is the deliberate denial of reality, and the fantasy of regressing into teenagerhood. but the last part? that’s the acknowledgement that they’re not always going to be kids and life will not be easy. tyler is walking down the street, alone, and without the backpack and the tricycle. this is a sign he’s maturing. and blurryface, he’s there too. i think that entire scene is representative of coming of age.

ride/fairly local - like heathens and heavydirtysoul, i think there’s strong evidence these videos parallel each other. both take place in an isolated location and make use of very polarized (no pun intended) environments. ride - the daytime and the nighttime. fairly local - the icy house and the red hallway. 

so in ride, i think it’s really important that the verses and the bridge take place at night. this is where tyler is doing all his worrying. he doesn’t know what his place in life is and what his relationship to others is. who would you live for, who would you die for, would you ever kill? he’s overanalyzing. he’s in the dark, both literally and metaphorically, about everything. and he doesn’t know where he stands with anyone. he can’t see. he’s wearing dark glasses at night. josh is nowhere to be seen. and then the chorus is where he lets up. he acknowledges that there is a lot to worry about and a lot to analyze over, but he can still enjoy his life. even though he’s hurling through the unfamiliar course of life he can still take the time to look at the things that he loves. and the light comes on, and he can look at the beauty that’s around him, and he can see that there are people and things that mean a lot to him even though he’s questioning it all. 

and then we have fairly local, where the majority of the video takes place in an icy house. the whole video seems very disconnected from the rest of the world. it’s freezing and desolate, both tyler and josh seem to ignore each other, and their demeanor is cold and apathetic. they’re trying very hard to remain unemotional, closed off, unable to see the damage they do to themselves and others. but that denial of their own feelings - that’s where blurryface manifests. he’s what’s causing their isolation, he’s there in the red hallway, changing into something darker and darker as tyler and josh continue to distance themselves.

and a thing i like about fairly local is that the quiet and desolate atmosphere of the video completely contradicts the lyrics of the song. “im fairly local, ive been around, ive seen the streets, youre walking down.” “the few, the proud, and the emotional.” he’s talking about the fanbase, and josh, and jenna, and everyone he’s been able to connect with. and the sense of group mentality and empathy are completely antithetical to the cold, quiet video that they represent breaking out of that atmosphere. 

tear in my heart - this one is an oddball. all the music videos from this era have the common thread of using human connection as a symbol of coping with blurryface. most videos choose to represent that with the relationship between tyler and josh, but this video uses tyler and jenna instead. i think the content of the video is pretty straightforward, and a lot of people have dived into this theory, but the scene in which jenna beats up tyler is important. a common interpretation is that this scene actually represents jenna beating up blurryface. blurryface doesn’t give up without a fight, of course. wrestling with such a character, such a deeply rooted part of your thoughts, is going to cause some distress. there is pain involved in battling your own mind, but the pain is a sign that you are able to fight, that you’re doing it. sometimes you gotta bleed to know that you’re alive and have a soul. but it takes someone to come around and show you how. jenna and tyler’s love for each other is what gives tyler the power to challenge blurryface, but he won’t be able to do that without some pain involved. 

and now i think i understand why blurryface is the name of this strange part of everyone’s brain. the literal opposite of the word blurryface is of course clear face. as in being able to see people’s faces clearly. blurryface is the opposite of seeing people for who they truly are. blurryface is the opposite of joining people who are fighting the same battles as you and really connecting with them. the opposite of blurryface is friendship and truth, and we must always find comfort in the fact that we are not alone. there are always people out there for you. and that’s how you defeat a demon. 


Cas does it all, too.

What instruments would Hamilton and his friends play?
  • Hamilton: Drums. Loud. Obnoxious. If Jefferson tries to steal the spotlight he casually // throws his drumsticks as hard as he can at him //
  • Laurens: Ukulele, very soft and sweet with that angel voice of his. Hamilton always asks him to play for him in a so //t o t a l l y p l a t o n i c w a y//
  • Mulligan: Harmonica. He keeps it in his pocket at all times and plays it so beautifully people forget how big and tough he looks. He's just a big soft bean
  • Lafayette: He's too busy learning English, do you think he has time to learn an instrument? The answer is yes, he plays the flute
  • Burr: Violin. Elegant and soft, gentle in a way Burr has always tried to be. This is how he got Theodosia to fall for him.
  • Washington: Chello. He doesn't like to talk about it, but Hamilton often here's him softly playing at night after an extra stressful day
  • Eliza: Piano (*gross sobbing* she taught philip piano)
  • Angelica: Harp. She rarely gets to play, but when she does she will drop everything and she can play for hours. She played one at Eliza and Hamilton's wedding when they danced.
  • Peggy: Picollo. vv high pitched, vv trilling, vv bad ass,, vv anD PEgGY
  • Jefferson: Fiddle. Straight outta Virginia, a southern instrument, as well as it gives him the chance to constantly steal Hams spotlight
  • Madison: Acoustic guitar. Can be soft and soothing or loud and very country. Normally plays it very soft, and Jefferson will sit outside of his door and listen but doesn't tell him about it.
