anonymous asked:

GaVG!Donnie 1 and 4 please?

1. Theme song: Actually, the song from which I got the name for the GaVG ‘verse is my Donnie’s theme song: “Guitar and Video Games” by Sunny Day Real Estate. A close runner-up is Stars’ “Tonight” (which I listened to on repeat as I wrote the kiss scene in Gates of Summer). 

4. Archetype/character trope: Is there a pithy way to say “Donnie will never, ever give up, or stop, or surrender, because he doesn’t know how, and because he has a will of iron and diamond, and because he is so wholly good-hearted that even if he wanted to stop, he couldn’t, because he just wants to make the world better, even if it’s only for a little while”? Because that’s my Donnie.

Sunny Day Real Estate, “Tearing In My Heart”

Tearing in my heart when the world falls apart
And it’s almost too hard
Tearing in your mind how the pain makes you blind
When it’s all said and done

Tearing in my heart, a mistake from the start
And it’s almost too hard
Tarry, it’s my mind, I’ll repay you another time
When it’s all said and done

Tearing in your bones when the road left you alone
And it’s almost too hard
Tarry in my soul and you help make me whole
When it’s all said and done

Tearing in my heart when the world falls apart
And it’s almost too hard
Tarry in my soul and you help make me whole
When it’s all said and done

“Headcase” by Day Wave // Headcase EP (Now Streaming)

Jackson Phillips, the Oakland based nostalgia pop artist who records under the name Day Wave, is having a bit of a moment right now. Deservedly so. In addition to getting some pretty incredible airplay in the form of Zane Lowe’s inaugural Beats 1 radio show, and a feature in Billboard - the artist has also pieced together a collection of his work as a proper EP, entitled Headcase. These are mostly a collection of the wonderful tracks that have been filling up Phillips’ Soundcloud these past several months, with the exception of the lovely title track which I can’t help but highlight. “Headcase” finds the artist doing what he does best, which is craft glimmering, nostalgia inducing slices of dream pop that feel both melancholic and triumphant. It’s another bit of pure, blissed out pop perfection. Highest recommendation.
