serious singing

Ok real talk time


see this movie. bring a friend. bring all your friends. bring every single solitary person who has been beaten down and dragged through the mud with this absolute hell of a year. watch it twice. I am being as serious as i can be.

because yes. 2016 has been pure, concentrated hell from the moment it started. And in a year with NO positives, NO hope at times, and morale lower than I have ever seen it….


this movie is a bright, shining beacon of hope that says yes. things are broken. get up and sing anyway. 


this is the most positive movie I’ve ever seen. It shows six characters hit rock bottom, then hit LOWER than that, and then rise from the ashes and go you know what? we are all that we need. let’s sing anyway, even if no one is watching. I went into the theater a wreck, still mourning the loss of my idol and hero Carrie Fisher, and finally just broken from how horrible the year’s been to me, and I left the theater singing and dancing and the happiest I’ve been in MONTHS. It says that failure happens, even if you give it more than your all. but if you hit rock bottom, the only way to go is UP. that is the way to close this year, you guys. Yes, we’ve hit bottom.


Let’s go into 2017 singing our hearts out ANYWAY.

Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where’s the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn
And I dream of what I need  (x)

madseason replied to your posttbh I’m very :/ about the whole ‘except rap or…

I’ve found that most of the time when people say they “don’t like rap or country”, it’s because they just haven’t heard enough of that type of music. Same when people say they don’t like classical music. Although the dislike of both rap and country is also tied into a feeling of superiority over the types of people who typically listen to those genres, IMO

it ABSOLUTELY is a superiority thing, considering the former is associated with black culture & the latter is associated with rednecks (that is, folks thought of as poor/uneducated). the classical music sort of goes the other way in my experience, where it’s sort of like… a reflexive backlash against something seen as elitist. kinda like art museums. if you go with friends and laugh about art you find silly, it’s a good experience. if you’re forced to find someone else’s meaning in some super deep allegorical whatever then it’s just tedious. gotta stop seeing opera as dramatic and start seeing it as melodramatic. check that Hot Gossip

literaryreference replied to your posttbh I’m very :/ about the whole ‘except rap or…

This speaks to me so deeply. I don’t think there are any genres of music I categorically dislike, which might be because the entire idea of trying to determine what genre something is confuses and upsets me. “What kind of music do you like?” is high on my list of Least Favorite Questions.

genres have always been weird arbitrary lines that are thin as a gnat’s wing & tends to wiggle all over the place, esp considering there’s a lot of artists who go out of their way to mess with genres and a lot of artists that don’t really confine themselves to specific styles. I’m still, like, confused about. pop. I don’t understand it.

12 things I learned while being 18

1. no matter how old you get, crying in your mom’s arms will always make you feel 3 years old

2. if you don’t want to piss people off, be a vegetable. dance like an idiot at parties, laugh like a walrus at serious meetings, sing pop songs at the top of your lungs in front of your indie friends, wear red socks when the dress code is black and white. the point isn’t rebellion, the point is expression. the point is the world would be a much better place if we were taught to be fascinated by our differences instead of fearing them, if we were taught to explore individuality instead of controlling it. if we were taught that even if we disagree with somebody’s way of expression, we have no authority to ever tell somebody they can’t be who they are. free yourself, or let us be free

3. kisses are the best form of communication. it is your chance to say everything words can’t express. when you feel weak and fragile and you’ve given them so much of your heart they could break it at any second, say it.. kiss slowly, kiss softly, fingers running through their spine, face between hands. when you feel like you’re on fire, like no matter how close you are to each other you’ll never be close enough, say it. hands running through hair, whispers in between, desperate kisses, laughter in their mouth. i’m all for words, but, trust me, kisses are better than poetry

4. pain is a monster fed by fear- the more afraid you are of it finding you, the more it’ll grow. the more you run away, the stronger it’s legs get. it’ll appear when you drink a glass of wine by yourself and you find yourself crying for no reason. or when you realize you haven’t laughed in a week. pain hates being ignored. so make friends with pain. shake it’s hand. write about it, cry your eyes out in the shower, and let it slowly leave your body until you are clean again.

5. believe in everything, just in case. my favorite word of all time is “serendipity”. it means a “fortunate accident” and it is the most important word in the world, because it taught me the only way to experience magic is to believe in it. when you bump into a stranger and it feels like you’ve known them forever, when you apply for the school of your dreams and it doesn’t work out, your phone turning off before you have to send an important text- . the universe is in constant communication with us, playing a charming little game of charades. we guess and we guess and we make a fool of ourselves guessing, but we will find our answer, and the whole room will cheer when we do

6. when you cant find love, make it. if you’re having the worst day of your life, smile at people walking on a sidewalk. text your best friend and tell her you are so happy the boy she’s liked since 7th grade is in her math class. it’ll make you feel better. love is love, given or taken, created or received

7. there are two kinds of people in the world: the ones that are relieved by this next sentence, and the ones that are worried: karma is real. some people will gossip and spread poison, they will forget about lifting themselves up and become obsessed with tearing you down, they will whisper quiet so you know its not meant for you, but loud enough so you feel like the smallest person in the room, and after you’ve beat yourself up wondering what you did wrong you will try and gain their acceptance. and they will still hate you. darling, it never had anything to do with you. hatred is only a reflection of people’s own misery, they have so much of it they want to find other places to put it in. but whatever you do, don’t lose hope in people and don’t stop being kind to people. let life do it’s thing. be kind, work hard, cheer people on, and life will be good to you.

8. spend as much time as you can with your family. learn about where your grandparents come from, ask them how they fell in love, tell your dad to tell you about that time he got detention in high school. they’re getting older too

9. all your troubles will disappear with chanel #5 perfume on your neck. well, they wont. but your troubles will smell delicious. the only thing worth spending a lot of money on is a perfume that makes you feel like the queen of the earth. your scent is your signature

10. love is the most lethal drug of all. sometimes you will have to walk away from people you’re addicted to. you will need to stop making excuses for people that hurt you. and you will take your heart from the shelf they put it on and say “thank you for your time, but this felt damn freezing up there.” and you will reach up even if you don’t feel tall enough, and you will take it from the shelf, and you will put it back in your scratched up chest, and you will button up your shirt, and it’ll hurt like hell, but you will walk away. it will be the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do. you will think you’ve walked away from something you can’t replace, that you’ll never feel that high again. trust me, you will

11. be kind to people, keep people’s secrets, be the one that answers the phone when nobody else does, make everyone feel importan. no matter what happens, be as kind as you can

12. feel everything, that is the difference between living and existing

I’m taking a ride
With my best friend
I hope he never lets me down again
He knows where he’s taking me
Taking me where I want to be

We’re flying high
We’re watching the world pass us by
Never want to come down
Never want to put my feet back down
On the ground

Promises me I’m safe as houses
As long as I remember who’s wearing the trousers
..
Never let me down
See the stars, they’re shining bright
Everything’s alright tonight

psa: it’s john and paul.

THIS IS ALL WAR BOYS’ THEME SONG AND IF SOMEONE WANTS TO SAY DIFFERENTLY THEY CAN FIGHT ME

  • Aomine: KAGAMI, YOU FUCKING DIDN’T PAY THE POWER BILL, ARE YOU SERIOUS?
  • Kuroko: *strums guitar* *sings* When your lights don’t work like they used to before-
  • Aomine: TETSU, SHUT THE FUCK UP.
…dance like an idiot at parties, laugh like a walrus at serious meetings, sing pop songs at the top of your lungs in front of your indie friends, wear red socks when the dress code is black and white. the point isn’t rebellion, the point is expression. the point is the world would be a much better place if we were taught to be fascinated by our differences instead of fearing them, if we were taught to explore individuality instead of controlling it. if we were taught that even if we disagree with somebody’s way of expression, we have no authority to ever tell somebody they can’t be who they are. free yourself, or let us be free

Something to hurt us all: goofy slow dancing with Harry to God Only Knows by The Beach Boys.

Bonus pain: he occasionally bursts out in comical song and you laugh like you’ve never laughed before.

Double jeopardy: he gets really low and serious with the singing at some point, right in your ear, almost like a hum, and you know you don’t dare look him in the eye. 

Happy 1-year anniversary to Skyhill’s “Firefly”!
