showcase invitation

[Official Announcement on Don Malik's denial of entry to U.S.]

Hi, this is DAZE ALIVE.

I have news that may make you feel uncomfortable and/or bothered by it’s details.

As some of you may know, Don Malik was invited to showcase his music for an international audience at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Unfortunately, Don Malik was denied entry to the U.S. after hours of unfair treatment and was forced to give up his stage taking place at the Karma Lounge on March 17.

Last Sunday, March 12th, Don Malik and eight other staff members and fellow artists from artist management agency StoneShip boarded a flight at Incheon International Airport (ICN) and headed for their first point of entry into the U.S. First stop, San Francisco International Airport (SFO) but during a routine screening by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Don Malik was detained and denied entry into the U.S. and was sent back to South Korea.

Don Malik and the rest of the crew had in their possession approved ESTA Visas, Contracts and Visa Waiver Forms, both provided by SXSW, stating that their showcase is not an engagement in commercial activities within the U.S. Nonetheless, they were detained for 24 hours after they were refused entry, and had to go through racist speech and ridicule of local SFO CBP staff, such as pulling both ears on both sides (imitating monkeys) or calling them “chinks.” In addition, all the members of the party were confiscated from the possibility of helping local officials, and one of their fellow artists was handcuffed for no reason and was never recited the ‘Miranda Rights’ which the U.S. Constitution states that the rights apply to all persons within the United States. Due to this refusal, the ESTA approval they received is permanently erased.

According to foreign magazines such as Pitchfork and Spin, at least seven teams have been denied entry for the same reason, some of whom have already entered the U.S. and attended SXSW in previous years with the same visa and paperwork.
We express deep regrets about the racial discrimination and unfair treatment experienced by the artists who have been denied entry and wish you a better chance to meet local fans who were anxiously waiting for Don Malik’s showcase.

Can i request a RFA+V reaction to.. when MC ask them to take classes of tango or bachata but their schedule doesnt allowed them, so MC started to taking classes on her own, later she gives a performance and has to dance with other guy (which is very handsome) aaaaaaand the choreo were too romantic/sexy (you know the body contact,etc) THANK YOU SWEETIE

 here you go sweetie <3

Scenario: After 16 fun and stressful practice lessons, it was finally time to showcase your talent. You invite your s/o to your graduation performance.

(reminder: requests are CLOSED)


Zen:

- Zen’s of course sitting in the front row and tbh he’s so excited

- he knows you’re upset that he can’t join you for classes but his practice schedule was hectic and he couldn’t afford to miss any

- he bought you roses and he’s waiting impatiently for you to come out and perform your sequence

- when it’s finally your turn, you step out in a gorgeous body-hugging red dress and Zen is speechless

- he’s already excited when suddenly a man steps out after you and Zen’s expression immediately changed

- and then the song starts playing and guess what it sounds really sexy

- you and your partner had some pretty intimate moves right from the beginning of the performance

- your partner had his hand on your waist and it’s time for the spin but somehow that didn’t happen and you feel someone pulling you back

- and surprise surprise it’s Zen

- he takes your hand and continued the dance even though it’s nothing like what you and your partner practiced and the rest of the audience clapped along because look it’s musical actor Zen 

- and your partner is force to go off-stage

- when the song finishes, he quickly ends it with a kiss and the audience’s applause is louder than ever

- you’re embarrassed but hey you like it

- he then pulls you backstage and apologises that he couldn’t join you for the classes and he’s glad you’ve graduated because he NEVER wants any other guy touching you ever again


Jumin:

- he entered the theatre late because of last minute meetings but he’s just in time to catch your performance

- but before he could sit down, you’ve already began the choreography and you’re dancing with another guy

- he doesn’t even stop to think, he just storms his way up onto the stage and drags you away

- his bodyguards are close behind just in case anything happens

- you’re pissed that you didn’t get to showcase your talent on stage

- but when Jumin asked if you had officially graduated and gotten your certificate, you nodded

- he smirks and says that he can’t wait to watch his own private performance in his penthouse


Yoosung:

- he can’t wait to watch your perfomance !!!

- he feels guilty that he couldn’t join you for the classes because of school

- then when you came up on stage his jaw drops

- it’s not just because you look absolutely gorgeous in the dress but also because who the hell is that guy beside you

- he is super uncomfortable throughout the entire performance because:

- 1. that guy is touching is you all over

- 2. he’s way too handsome

- 3. will you leave him for your dance partner?

- it seems like torture because the duration of your performance is very long

- but as soon as it ended, he rushes backstage to meet you

- you’re still with your partner when you bump into Yoosung

- he immediately glares at your partner and your partner gets the hint to leave

- when he turns back to you, his expression changes and it looks as if he could cry anytime

- he asks you quietly if you still loved him

- you know what’s been going through his head, so in response you chuckle and you hug him

- he immediately smiles and congratulated you for graduating


Jaehee:

- of course she can’t join you for classes, I mean who could if their boss is Mr. Han

- the performance soon starts and she’s unfazed, really

- or at least that’s what she thinks she’s feeling

- tbh she just can’t wait for your performance to end just so your partner will stop touching you

- but she’s really mesmerised by your dance moves and your expression is absolutely perfect

- when the performance finally finishes, she finds you backstage and she gives you the warmest hug ever

- she compliments you over and over again

- you ask if Jaehee’s okay because she seems flushed

- she nods and she just hugs you again

- you’re confused but you’re just glad she enjoys your performance so much


Seven:

- your performance started and he’s leaning forward in his seat

- but as soon as you came out with your guy partner, he stands up quietly with a straight face and walks away

- your about to do your next dance sequence when the lights suddenly go off and everyone screams when you screamed

- you know someone’s pulling you away and you think you’re being kidnapped so you struggle but because you’re in heels it was hard for you to free yourself

- suddenly the street light blinds you and you find yourself outside of the theatre

- and you find yourself facing a very familiar redhead grinning in front of you

- you yell again, but this time you’re angry that Seven scared you

- he jokes saying that he ‘wants to take you away into the night’

- but you know he’s jealous even though he doesn’t say it

- so when he brings you inside his car, he requests that you perform your dance in front of him and teach him as well and you agree


V:

- this man is almost blind he can’t see that well so of course he gets the disabled seat at the front of the theatre

- he knows when it’s your turn because he recognises your figure and your performance is the last item

- but the moment you step out, another person steps out as well

- and V has to squint to see who the other person is even though it hurt his eye

- and he becomes slightly irritated to see that the other person is a man and he’s touching you in almost all of the dance moves

- he’s the master at keeping his composure, but inside he’s burning with jealously

- he patiently waits until the performance is over and you come running down the stage to greet him

- you hug him warmly and he gladly returns the hug

- he teases you saying that you’re too good at dancing and he can never dance with you

- but you immediately said no because V can always learn no matter what

- to add on, you said that your partner wasn’t that good anyway he kept stepping on your shoes (just that V couldn’t see) and V laughs

This is for Dante Basco…I was planning to give this to you for your birthday, but I started it way too early in anticipation, and it seems like you’ve been having a hard time lately, so…I hope it might cheer you up a little, anyway.

I really can’t express how much Avatar–Zuko in particular–has meant to me without writing pages and pages, so I’ll try to be succinct. This is the very first picture I ever drew of Zuko, when I was 10 years old, so you can have a visual representation of what your amazing work with this character has done for me. Drawing was never something I took very seriously until I found a subject–a character–I was passionate about. Then inspiration took hold, and I just couldn’t stop drawing. Zuko’s character resonated with me the way no character had ever done before. Now, ten years later, I’m still drawing him, art is the love of my life, and I’ve been invited to showcase some of my work in 2 public galleries downtown this September. For all of your incredible work, thank you, thank you, and please know that you have made an immense impact on all the fans whose lives have been shaped by Zuko’s journey, and the life you breathed into him. I hope, as much as you’ve done for me over the years, you enjoy this picture at least a bit. (It was supposed to say; “To Dante Basco: Have an HONORABLE Birthday!” in the corner, but my handwriting is so bad, and I decided not to wreck it)

 

Stay flamin’, Sifu Hotman.

in the radio au... i really need them to meet, please.

Anya swaggers up the hallway smelling faintly of smoke and beer and grass. A few of the other residents nod to her—there are a few questions too, mostly from the first years, the usual “where is this and that”, “what do I do if”, and the like—and it’s late when she reaches Lexa’s room. She leans against the wall and knocks lightly, waiting for Lexa to call out before she pushes the door open. She stays there, in the entry, for a moment and lets the music wash over her.

Hold on

Joyeux anniversaire Andrea !!!!!!

Klaine AU Meeting

Blaine is terribly nervous.

He shouldn’t be : after all, the hard part is behind him, he got into the damn school, didn’t he?

And yet. And yet he’s standing outside of the lecture hall, clutching the strap of his bag like a lifeline, feeling his fingers shake slightly as he ponders the merit of ditching his very first college class.

Blaine knows that he has nothing to be afraid of, per se : here, he’s among people who (should) understand him, (should) share the same passions, (should) welcome him with open arms – ok the last one was maybe a bit too strong a wish, but a man can dream.

It’s just nerves, he rationalizes as he shakes his head and straightens his shoulders, it will pass. Just get in there, Anderson, get in there, take a sit, focus and it will be alright.

Patting himself on the virtual back, Blaine pulls open the door and throws a cautionary look around him. The hall looks beautiful, all dark wood and velvet drapes framing the window filtering the sunlight, and there are only 21 seats taken – he’s not late yet, all is good, he just needs …

He just needs to stop staring and remember how to breath.
