jon bellion - guillotine is always a go to for my shance feels.

You guys are sending in such good music?? I think I especially like this one for a shance song tbh. Either way, I’m getting good music recs lmao

gonna do one more after this one and then i’m gonna sleep bc i have company tomorrow and i honestly didn’t expect ppl to reply? but if you wanna send more, feel free to! this is so fun and I don’t think my inspiration for writing has ever been higher. 

Send me a song (and au if you want!) and I’ll write you a short shance fic.

The secrets you tell me I’ll take to my grave
There’s bones in my closet, but you hang stuff anyway
And if you have nightmares, we’ll dance on the bed
I know that you love me, love me
Even when I lose my head
Guillotine, guillotine
Even when I lose my head
Guillotine, guillotine
Even when I lose my head


Sometimes, often actually, Shiro will look over and just be hit with the thought, completely with fondness and pure happiness, I don’t deserve him


Today, like every morning after a particularly bad night, Lance is up, in the kitchen, and cooking breakfast. He always says he plans to bring it back to the bedroom so Shiro can eat it in bed, not have to get up, but like every morning before, Shiro wakes up to and is drawn out by Lance’s singing. 


The songs tend to be pretty unpredictable and are just whatever Lance is in the mood for. Sometimes he’ll dance to the radio’s top hits and sing into the spatula, other times he’s swaying his hips (god, does Shiro love to watch that) in front of the stove to some cheesy love song he lies about having downloaded on his phone. Occasionally, he’s still and instead quiet as he sings one of his mother’s lullabies, while some days he’ll tap the counters in some off-beat rhythm about wordless-songs that Shiro is pretty sure come from video games. Off-beat or not, they’re a little too together to be something completely from Lance’s imagination.


Shiro quite honestly loves it.


“What are you doing up already?” Lance asks like he always does, not even jumping, when he finally catches Shiro in the corner of his eye. He’s been leaning against the wall, just watching with a smile beginning to bloom on his face.


Shiro does his part too and shrugs. “Thin walls.”


“Mm,” Lance hums and there’s a smug grin on his face that tells Shiro he’s having some thoughts that are a little too put-together for just waking up. “Surprised we still have any neighbors.”


Shiro would be lying if he said he’s never thought that himself. 


Shrugging again, he comes closer, raising his arm to wrap around Lance’s waist as he presses kisses into his neck, starting with gentle ones and delving into wet, open-mouthed ones, and doesn’t even bother to hide his grin when Lance shivers. “If you weren’t cooking…”


“You’d get rid of the last of ‘em?”


Hm. Maybe. He glances at the food and - maybe if it wasn’t french toast. Scaring off the neighbors can wait. “Something like that.”

okay, this may be a random and not necessary mean anything, but here is what kind of thought struck me today regarding the mixtape, next season and the possible endgame for deancas: the mixtape was labelled "dean's top 13 zepp traxx", right? but isn't it a bit uncommon to make top list of 13 songs? I mean, usually you pick a number which is divided by 5 (5,10,15 etc). Could this be writers hinting to us again that something meaningful between dean and cas is gonna happen the next,13th, season?

So I reblogged this post the other day by @margarittet because it was such a brilliant piece of meta on this that I feel like I don’t need to say anything more. 

That meta post touched on what you are talking about above, because 13 probably isn’t a coincidence and the writers most likely didn’t do the maths on how many Led Zeppelin songs an average cassette tape could actually hold, though for the hell of it I am gonna give it a go. Because why not.

Basically a cassette tape can hold around 45 minutes of song time on it. That averages out to around 11 - 15 songs of the average modern day song length of 3-4 minutes long.

Led Zeppelin songs on average are longer than that, at least 6 minutes long, though some pass the 10 minute mark on their own. It would have made far more sense to pick a top ten for LZ as logically, the only way to fit 13 LZ songs on a standard cassette tape would be if you were only picking the shorter songs, which means you’re skipping some of the best (which Dean totally wouldn’t do). Sure we can imagine Dean went and bought the fancy new cassette tapes with far more space on them, but Dean has always been pretty old school about these things and I just can’t see him going for all that modern stuff. If he was gonna do that, he could have made Cas a CD instead, or a playlist on an Ipod.

Whilst I doubt the writers sat down and worked out song timings and cassette length, the number 13 does make little sense in general and as you say, a top 10 would be far more obvious. So yes. Basically my point is that the number 13 was not pulled out of thin air. It was significant. Just like every single other thing in that entire scene was extremely significant. The whole moment was a spectacular display of storytelling, script writing, editing, production design, everything. It was bloody genius.

Just like the fact that Dean spelt ‘Track’s’ with 2 ‘XX’s to give the double meaning of kisses, the number 13 was part of the message. 13 is an important number. 13 is where we are headed. 13 songs, 13 seasons, and two guys who have been dealing with their unspoken feelings for each other for far too long. 

Unlucky for some? But not for Dean and Cas. I’m calling it guys. Season 13 is when it’ll happen. This isn’t based on the mixtape alone, but just a general feeling based on where season 12 has taken us. Destiel is happening, and I would put money on it happening in season 13.

WELL. Here it is. One of… the three Shallura amvs I’m randomly making with some of the manips I’ve done. Honestly, this one kind of just showcases the edits I’ve made and isn’t as aesthetically pleasing as I’d hope for it to be. I had to end up cutting the song at points just to finish the damn thing, because my will to continue working on it is nonexistent now. lmao. I should probably stick to shorter videos. 

This song doesn’t scream Shallura to me, but I just happened to be listening to the new Gorillaz album at the time I started this. It’s what sparked some of the edits, like the fireworks gif. So, whoops. But I hope you guys enjoy it anyway!! <3

The House Of The Rising Sun by The Animals

Legend has it that 50 years ago today The Animals recorded their legendary cover of the English folk piece “The House of the Rising Sun”

A note on the album. I believe on The Animals’s American debut album (shown above) the song is shorter. I’m posting the long version which was introduced in later compilation albums

Here is a question I have. See, we never see Victor’s final pose for his Free Skate, Stammi Vicino. Since Yuri does a perfect copy, we know what it looks like, but not what Victor’s expression was. It’s a very lonely kind of ending pose, arms wrapped around himself, looking beseechingly up into the sky. Lots of people have talked about how the Aria is all about that cripplingly lack of love.

(Whoever drew Yuri in this frame, ten thumbs up, the right hand behind his back, his smile, ;u;)

My follow-up questions is: what did the ending of the pair skate look like??? The routine has obviously changed a lot as Victor and Yuri skate together and the Duet is also shorter! The song is almost twice the length of the animated sequence (a whole ‘nother minute), although the animated sequence does end at the melodic climax. It has very delicate ending unlike the super intense Aria high note. The combination spin and big finish pose that was in the Aria seems totally unsuitable for the duet!

Maybe we’ll find out when we get those choreography videos in the DVDs?? I’m simply dying of curiosity, haha! 

a Getting Into Prog Playlist for people who think prog seems sick af but dont know where to begin (with links weeeee)

(disclaimer: not intended to be a complete sampling of the genre, mainly classic prog rock for starters, but feel free to add on)

shorter/more radio-friendly songs to ease u in

longer/weirder songs to begin with

tips bc prog is Fucked Up:

  • if ur not used to long ass songs they will most likely be intolerable at first. u may or may not grow to love them
  • yes, genesis, & rush are good starter bands bc they are very big and (at certain time periods) more accessible to mainstream tastes but still v prog. u will find more bands & subgenres as u go deeper into the genre
  • some bands are considerably scarier than others, some fluctuate, many will make u feel like ur dying but its Good
  • only like 3-4 bands have an actual fandom here so good luck when u start getting into other ones
  • prog fans generally come in the flavors of pretentious & Not pretentious. all the prog peeps ive met on tungle are wondrous. check the prog squad for dank friends

On this day in music history: May 24, 1969 - “Get Back” by The Beatles With Billy Preston hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 5 weeks. Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, it is the seventeenth US chart topper for “The Fab Four”. The single is the first music to emerge from the recording sessions that produce the “Let It Be” album and documentary film. The “hit single version” of the track is recorded at Apple Studios in London on January 27, 1969, after weeks of rehearsing and recording various takes of the song. At the invitation of George Harrison, musician Billy Preston will play keyboards (mainly electric piano and organ) during the sessions for two weeks. The Beatles enjoy his playing and affable personality so much that they give him co-billing on the single when it is released (the only time another musician is credited along side the band). “Get Back” is also The Beatles first single to be issued in stereo in the US (mono in the UK). An alternate, shorter take of the song appears on the “Let It Be” album when it is released a year later in May 1970. It is released the UK the Friday before Easter Sunday on April 11, 1969, with the US release date being on May 5, 1969. The delay being caused by Paul McCartney deciding to remix the track again days before its scheduled release in the UK, with US release date also being pushed back. In spite of this, the single is an immediate smash. The Beatles tie their own previous record for the highest ever chart debut on the Hot 100 (set by “Hey Jude” eight months earlier) when “Get Back” enters the chart at #10 on May 10, 1969, leapfrogging to the top of the chart two weeks later. “Get Back” is certified 2x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

Kristin Stokes sings “My Grand Plan” from The Lightning Thief

Kristin was the original Annabeth in the first production of The Lighting Thief. A shorter version of this song was on the first production of the musical. It’s unknown (and unlikely) if Kristin will reprise her role.

I Was A Nightling by Jimmythe Peach

I was a nightling.
Oh, the glories of being an addict in my alley
off the Boulevard of Music,  
a Punk, Rockabilly, Reggae Cowboy,

until daylight gave me the trembles
and the novelty wore off.

My lifestyle whittled away all that was social.
Conversations disappeared, leaving lyrics
and unfinished stories, each day my longest ever on earth.
Songs got shorter,
and shorter, and
shorter…

The lathe of my lousy life shaved even the words away,
and my axe and my amp and the rest of the gear,
the magic boxes of reverb alchemy, solid-state flangers,
phasers, a Cry Baby, and the chorus I borrowed from
I don’t remember who… the last to go, the Rat distortion box.

Gone, everything gone.

Then Red gave me his guitar,
an old Fender Mustang.
He’d drive us around to little clubs
and on Sunday afternoons we’d jam
jazzy at Gilardi’s, the old place
on the slow bank of the Petaluma River.

My memory of those days is dim,
but I must have been doing something right,
because the waitress would bring me
bottles ofJamaican Red Stripe beer
and she’d cook me dinners I couldn’t eat
and make the other customers wait for their drinks.

Crashing at Reds, one Sunday
he couldn’t wake me up.
I must have passed away.
That’s what I figure.
That’s what happens
if you ride the train
past the end of the line.

It’s been years since I died… those days dim.

Dodie EP Speculation

Okay so feel free to add on to this with your opinions and predictions

*6/10 has already been confirmed in a video to be a track on the new EP
*Snippets of In The Middle in the studio were heard via dodies snapchat
*I also think it’s likely that Would You Be So Kind will be on the EP because it’s a very popular song and it sounds incredible with a band, she also uploaded a video of that song with the band so she must love it live too
*on intertwined there were two shorter songs (hole in my tooth, life lessons) so it’s likely there’s going to be short songs on this EP, hopefully I Knew You Once???
*also She is a very popular one so that could be on it (also a studio version of she would kill my gay arse)

If you have any thoughts please add on
