she riffs

Wet Floor also has two members that play guitar and provide vocals. The guy on the left is a fan of vintage rock sounds. You can hear it in the sharp, jangly rhythms of his riffs. The girl on the right is a faithful follower of the church of punk rock, and she carves out riffs with a more  hunky, bass-heavy sound. These two don’t always see eye-to-eye, but when they’re in the groove, their two distinct sounds meld into a medley of magical music.

Kurt Cobain wrote “Heart-Shaped Box” in early 1992. Cobain forgot about the song for a while, but began working on it again when he and his wife, Courtney Love, moved to a house in the Hollywood Hills. In a 1994 Rolling Stone interview, Love said she overheard him working on the song’s riff in a closet. She said she asked him if she could use the riff for one of her songs, to which he replied, “off!” and closed the closet door. “He was trying to be so sneaky”, said Love. “I could hear that one from downstairs.” The couple shared a journal in which they would write lyrics; Cobain biographer Charles R. Cross noted that Love’s songwriting sensibility informed Cobain’s on the song. The song’s name came from a heart-shaped box Love had given Cobain. However, Cobain had originally titled the song “Heart-Shaped Coffin”.

Cobain said the song was inspired by documentaries about children with cancer. He told biographer Michael Azerrad, “Anytime I think about it, it makes me sadder than anything I can think of.” Azerrad asserted in his biography Come as You Are: The Story of Nirvana that despite Cobain’s explanation, the song actually appeared to be about Courtney Love. Charles Cross wrote in his Kurt Cobain biography Heavier Than Heaven that with the lyric “I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black”, the frontman “sang in what has to be the most convoluted route any songwriter undertook in pop history to say ‘I love you’”. Cobain said that the song’s chorus of “Hey/Wait/I’ve got a new complaint” was him giving an example of how he was perceived by the media.

Little Les Mis usa tour things

Grantaire and Gavroche’s relationship was so flipping cute. They hugged so much. And comforted each other when things got bad.

After Grantaire’s part in “drink with me” he went of to the corner and Gavroche followed him and they CUDDLED.

When they took Eponine’s body away after she died, Gavroche walked over to Marius and handed him Eponine’s hat.

WHAT A GOOD LITTLE BOY! HIS SISTER JUST DIED AND HE’S COMFORTING THE DUDE WHO IGNORED HER FOR YEARS.

During “red and black” when Grantaire was singing the lines, “you talk of battles to be one!” He jumped up on a table and when he sang, “and there he goes like Don Juan!” He had his bottle and started waving it around like a penis. (Enj was horrified of course)

Then Enjolras took his bottle and passed it to Combeferre (I think) and Grantaire ran to get it. Combeferre proceeded to throw it to someone else and it became a game of Monkey in the middle.

It ended with Enj holding the bottle, glaring at Grantaire. Then Enjolras started singing “it is time for us all…” And Grantaire walked away, while mocking Enj and found another bottle, so he could admire Enjloras from a distance.

Grantaire’s part in drink with me gave me all the feels he nearly fought™ some people. But Enjolras stopped him and they got so fucking close.

They honestly could have kissed and I wouldn’t be surprised if they did.

Grantaire stormed away and Enjloras watched, helpess. (and continued to stare at him)

THE FLIP FLAPPING BARRICADE SCENE WAS AWESOME.

It was all like “Boom!” “CRASH!” *Sparks*

Enjloras caught Gavroche’s body when he died. And handed him off to Grantaire. And the Grantaire was full on having a panic attack. The actor was so good oml.

Also Phoniex Best was AMAZEBALLS

I don’t even know what to say! Her singing, acting, and everything was on point. During Eponine and Fantine’s duet she did this amazing riff. Ahh I love her so much. She was my mom’s favorite.

I actually walked passed her on the street after the show. But I was in the other side of the street and she was on the phone so I didn’t want to bother her.

I actually saw the cast when they were about to leave.

Also Julian Lerner (Gavroche) walked right by me and a lady told him how good he was. He was so sweet and thanked her.

Matt Shingledecker was brilliant as Enjloras. So filled with passion and fire. He was amazing .

Nick Cartell and Josh Davis blew my Flipping socks off. Their voices are amazing and they are perfect for their roles

The ensemble is perfect in every way and I love them all so very much.

“Turning,” gave me chills it definitely one of my favorite parts of the show

“Empty chairs and Empty Tables” had me so emotional. I have a deep rooted emotional connection with this song and Joshua Grosso did exceptionaally well performing it.

THE CANDLEEES

This isn’t even half of the magical-ness of Les Mis. It’s truly something you have to expirence for yourself, and I highly recommend you do.

What’s the deal with Columbia?

Another character that, like Eddie, begs the question, “Who are they, exactly?” is Columbia. Unlike Eddie, Columbia gets a fair amount of screentime, but her key character-building moments are mostly presented through song or blocked out by callbacks. So, I would like, if I may, to take a moment to look at our humble groupie’s story. Buckle in, folks, cause there’s a LOT to talk about…

Please do more content for the daynolds ship i'm in love with your hc and I really wish there was more content for them

I’m definitely going to post more about them later and I’ll also probably write a fic for them at some point, but for now here are a few headcanons about them while they’re sneaking around together:

  • Matt has to come up with an idea for a history paper and he’s struggling, so he asks the upperclassmen for suggestions
  • Allison tells him “Go ask Kevin. He’s a history nerd. Isn’t he?”
  • Matt goes and asks Kevin about it after practice and Kevin is so eager to suggest topics and is spewing out information and Allison has never seen him like this
  • She’s never seen him talk about anything but exy this much
  • But this isn’t in the same way he is obsessed with exy where he pushes himself and everyone around him too hard in a grave way where nothing is good enough
  • Kevin actually doesn’t look all grumpy and unimpressed and isn’t looking down his nose at Matt for not knowing as much as him
  • He’s actually almost smiling and not his for the camera smile
  • This is more like the genuine one he got talking to Jeremy Knox
  • Allison knows she is in trouble because this is a whole new Kevin and she is intrigued, despite her better judgment

Y/N found Bruce in his lab, head bent over a computer monitor in deep concentration.

“Hey, Dr. Banner,” she said softly, not wanting to jar him out of his thoughts. It didn’t work, he still jumped.

“Oh, Y/N, hey, what can I do for you?” he adjusted his glasses as he looked up and gave her a small smile.

strike up the band | tommy shelby

more tommy/nurse war fic, back by popular demand. it gets happier, i promise.

It took Tommy five minutes longer than he would have liked to drag the man currently slumped over his shoulder to safety. Ducking and diving, throwing them to the mud, faces pressed into the sludge every time another shot rang off. He couldn’t even remember his name. The explosions drowned out every thought, except one: move.

“Hey!” Tommy screamed, voice hoarse and barely audible over the din. The path to the field hospital was chaos. A church, converted for use, the windows already half blown out. It had been abandoned when the town was taken, and a free building was a free building. What once must have been a peaceful, pretty path was now strewn with the signs of war. Blood and muck, pieces of uniform discarded like leaves fallen from the trees that lined the graveyard. There were bandages and detritus scattered about, forgotten and abandoned. Markers for the men who might never get them.

“Hey!” He screamed, trying to attract the attention of someone sheltering under the stoop at the front of the building. Some of the men finally took notice and scrambled over to him, instinctively ducking when another blast echoed out from behind them somewhere. They were technically at a safe distance here, but they were still close enough that every explosion stuttered in their chests, and so calm was hard to find.

One Year Ago Today (8.18.16) I did my First Official Act as Gypsy from MST3K. I recorded all of the Drop-Ins Riffs she does in Season 11. I could NOT tell anyone about this really, as Joel wanted me to keep my involvement a secret. While I’m no stranger to recording vocals - this was by far The Highest Honor I could have ever dreamed about. I was a real rascal by sneaking these pictures but it was such a surreal experience that I had to capture some in order to remember what it felt like. I won’t give away secrets of how we did all of the behind the scenes stuff; I’ll just say, I had NO idea what an exciting year I was in for. Again, thanks Joel Hodgson + cast + crew + MSTies for the extraordinary journey!

“What the hell does that German guy think he’s doing?” Chloe demanded.

Fat Amy and Beca looked to the corner of the room where you sat. Just a few feet away, Pieter fidgeted with his shirt. Once he found it satisfying, he advanced towards you. At the sight of it, Beca balled her fists.

First DSM won the Riff-Off and rubbed it in the Bella’s faces. Now one of their leaders was going to brag about it to Beca’s sister. Big no-no right there.

Fat Amy, seeing this anger, held the singer back. “As much as I want to beat ‘em too,” the Australian stated, “we have to watch and see what that Kraut does.”

Huffing in frustration, Beca crossed her arms and glared. “He better not do anything.”

Hi! Hope you’re doing well!! Mind if I ask ya to write a short fanfic on if Jackson were to have a son or daughter and what his intentions would be? What would he like his kid to be when he’s he gets older? Does he like the idea of being a father in the first place? Thank you very much!!

Hope YOU’RE doing well, anon! :) I’ve seen various conversations around the fandom discussing what he’d be like as a father, and they’re all quite good. I’ll see what I can do :) I’m gonna skip the infant stage and go straight to him dealing with a young child. I’m assuming the child came out of a one-night stand or a broken relationship, and he just now gets custody every so often.


“I’m so excited to finally get to meet her. I love children just so, so much!”

“Don’t make a scene, Gale. I don’t wanna draw attention.”

They were waiting in the far end of a rest stop parking lot on the side of I-40, waiting for the child’s mother to show up for the switch. Things had changed a lot over the past five years, and the kid had just been the beginning of it all. 

Jackson sighed. He felt responsible for his own mistakes and wanted to make up for them, but at the same time, he still held a little resentment towards his daughter’s mother. They were never together, just young and drunk and stupid. Somehow, something wonderful still came out of that.

“Here they come! Jackson, I see them!” Gale whispered excitedly.

He lifted his eyes and saw them enter the parking lot. Jackson was suddenly very antsy, at a loss for what to say. They’d been swapping custody of her for nearly three months now, why was he so nervous? Was it Gale looming over him? Normally she wasn’t there, maybe that was it. No, he knew himself better than that. 

“Alright, sweetie, here you go! Have fun at daddy’s house, okay?”

The sweetness of the woman’s tone almost made him angry, but he didn’t have any valid rationale as to why. He didn’t hate her. Deep down he knew he was just jealous that Maria was more attached to her mom than she was to him.
