On this day in music history: June 27, 1989 - “Cosmic Thing”, the fifth album by The B-52’s is released. Produced by Don Was and Nile Rodgers, It is recorded at Dreamland Recording Studio in West Hurley, NY and Skyline Studios in New York City from Late 1988 - Early 1989. After the loss of original guitarist Ricky Wilson in October 1985 and the lukewarm reception to the “Bouncing Off The Satellites” album, the veteran new wave band take a three year long hiatus from the music business before regrouping. In the interim, Keith Stickland having switched from the drums to playing guitar (having learned Wilson’s unique guitar tunings), begin composing new material in 1988. Playing some of the new songs for his bandmates, The B-52’s begin writing and playing together again. Their first album of all new studio material in over three years. Returning to the studio in late 1988, the band work with Was (Not Was) bassist Don Was fresh off of producing Bonnie Raitt’s comeback album “Nick Of Time”, and Chic guitarist and producer Nile Rodgers.

niall's stage presence is getting better like he KNOWS he doesn't know what to do with his hands but he's really trying like i'm very confident he will figure it out he just loves musical instruments someone give him one gerry's shakers

HE IS. it helps that he has more time on stage now, but i think there’s a perceptible, gradual improvement with each performance where he feels more comfortable and confident. like, he talked about performing ‘this town’ at the radio 1 teen awards as being petrifying, and now he’s gone and done tunes at wembley for the one love benefit event and only said that he missed playing for audiences that big. i thought it was pretty neat too that he didn’t crack once when his guitar went out during ‘issues’ the other day, and i’m sure moments like that make all that experience NOT playing during 'slow hands’ feel super, super handy!! i think it’s so smart to vary his performances that way, as well; some songs you want to see the musician shredding it, others it feels all the more powerful when they’re focusing solely on singing, too. he’s going to put on some killer concerts!!

Random musing: If Gladiolus’ s/o was having a hard time sleeping I really think he would wake up sensing their frustration despite him being a heavy sleeper. He’s just that in tune to them he just knows they are up.

A bit groggy he would help soothe them getting up to grab them a warm cup of milk or water. Not wanting them to move any to waken their body anymore than it is, as he can fall asleep at a drop of a hat.

He would pull them onto his chest as he sit propped up a little caressing their arms and back in a gentle massage. Just calmly talking to them about soothing things, like a new book he is looking forward to or that new recipe Ignis came up with earlier. Domestic talking, running his hand up through your hair.

Placing soft kisses to your face and neck as he talks sleepily.

Sometimes if it is something stressing you out and he knows what it is he’ll tell you what he thinks you should and act out the scenario with you to ease your stress and anxiety of it. Praising you as you finish the scenario and how you would do it

As soon as you fell asleep he would get you comfy by his side and he would curl up close to you and easily fall back to sleep.

Hi!! If you don't mind, is Piko an easy boy to use/would you recommend him to a beginner? He's been a long time face of mine and I've been seriously contemplating getting him as my first vocaloid, but I don't wanna get him if he's super duper hard to use ya know? Thank you for answering and btw I absolutely adore the way you tuned him in Creative!! I really hope you use Piko again sometime, you really do him justice imo!!

aaaaa tysm!!!!

imo piko’s pretty medium-ish to use, he’s not exactly the clearest vocaloid out there? so you might have trouble with that as a beginner, but he’s pretty easy to tune i think!

your blog is honestly my fav your headcanons and everything just 👌👌 so bc of your amazingness i wanna know if you've got any just like general headcanons for elladan/elrohir bc there needs to be more about them 🙈

This blog needs more of my sweet baby Elrohir

-Elrohir was always the early riser in his family, he just naturally gets up before the sun does. He checks on his siblings before going to get some tea and watches the sun come up.

-Picked up weapons training quicker, and has better technique than his twin but less power which works extremely well when they fight together.

-Loves the rain, he knows when it will rain a few days in advanced as he’s very in tune with the atmosphere. Arwen and Ellladan make bets on whether or not he’s right, every time they’re shocked.

-Elrohir is the last of his family to acquire a lover, he just hasn’t had much luck and is very picky. I think he’s more likely than his brother to choose an elf than another race.

-Was the calmer and less rambunctious twin when they were children and as they got older he grew into a quiet, stealth-like warrior who’s soul purpose is to exterminate all orcs but when he hits 3,000 he’s calmed down enough to where he wants to settle down.

-He has black hair down to his hips and he likes to wear it down when he’s home and relaxing. 

-When he was a teenage elf, he slept a lot but not as much as Elladan who could sleep anywhere anytime. Elrohir is a very light sleeper and always, always knows when a threat is coming. He wakes up at the slightest creak, Good luck scaring him. 

-Because of his sleeping habits he’s prone to having circles under his eyes.

That’s all I’ve got xD

How do u feel about the song "animals" by talking heads...?

I like it… as w most david byrne songs I think it’s abt paranoia and confusion stemming from attempting to function in a structured and oppressive society.. and as w several of his songs it’s about a stuffy guy having a breakdown,, it’s not one I have a lot of emotional attachment to since I don’t find it relatable but it’s very fun and funny and it’s got a good tune

Karamatsu: So, if Choromatsu is your best friend… who’s your second best friend?

Osomatsu: Jyushimatsu.

Karamatsu: Oh! Uh…

Osomatsu: Third best friend, Ichimatsu. Forth, Todomatsu. Fifth, a tie between Totoko-chan and Chibita.

Karamatsu: I’m sixth?!

Osomatsu: No. Kenta is sixth.

Karamatsu: Who’s Kenta?

Osomatsu: I don’t know, some dude I met at the airport. But you’re definitely my seventh best friend.

[A random guy bumps into them.]

Guy: Oops. Pardon me.

Osomatsu: Well, that was unexpectedly polite! You know what? That guy is seventh. You’re eighth.


Osomatsu: No, wait. Iyami is eighth. You’re ninth. Oof! Barely in the top ten, Karamatsu! I’m surprised we hang out at all. But keep trying! Anything is possible.
