sing me the song of your people

More “wtf are humans, please leave the rest of us be” stuff:

Human reactions to fear!

No, I’m not talking about screaming or freezing in one spot and pissing yourself. I’m talking about the weirder, more specific-to-only-humans fear reactions.

Like singing.

Idk how many of you have watched people play horror video games, but a surprising amount of people start narrating what’s going on in a sing-song voice.

Imagine being an alien, walking in a horrific, dark tunnel with these weird gangly creatures, you’re all scared out of your wits and then one of them starts fucking singing.

In a dark cave. While everyone’s terrified.

“ ♫ ~We are all gonna fucking die, this is terrible and I wanna go hooooome~ ♬ ”

We haven’t talked for such a long time, I can’t even recall the exact sound of your voice. I don’t remember your laugh - I remember the crinkles by your eyes and that dimple on your cheek and how it deepens - but I don’t know what it feels like to hear it, how it once made my heart swell in my chest, not anymore. And yet I’m sure that if I heard a million people laugh, yours would still stand out to me and maybe I’d turn around to look for the source and wonder how something so simple is enough to make my blood sing. We miss the memories, not the person, is what my father used to say, but how can he explain why I drop everything when I hear that one song we used to dance to and why that blue sweater you borrowed me still sits at the bottom of my closet when I could have thrown it away? How does missing someone make any sense when that person is still around, is somehow still a part of your life? How am I supposed to get over that? How does anyone?
—  missing you / n.j.

“You’re bright and joyful and so many people are cynical. They won’t understand you and they won’t understand me. But the only way they win is if your tears turn to stone and make you bitter like them. It’s okay to ask why. It’s okay to wonder how you could try so hard and still get stomped all over. Just don’t let them change you or stop you from singing or dancing around to your favorite song.”

Nini-🐻, how can we not think that you are singing this song for Soo-🐧?!?!

My 카디/kaisoo/kadi soul believes Nini-🐻 is singing the “Number Song” for Soo-🐧! Nini-🐻 immediately looked at Soo-🐧 after he was done singing & Soo-🐧 gave his thumbs-up for Nini-🐻 too! 👍

I can’t, the song is cute yet has such a sweet and loving meaning (see translation below):

“In a world with 6 billion people I feel so lucky that I met you. I love you!” ❤❤❤

Thank you 🐻🐧 for your subtle ways, it never fails to amaze me!!! 😭😭😭

They tell me not to write love poems.
-
They say, Black people have no time.
The revolution needs protest songs and bleeding banners
and chants that will resurrect
our children.
They say there is nothing revolutionary about black love.
-
But more black girls die from invisibility
than from gunshots.
We can’t find our own reflections -
because when the world lives like we don’t exist,
eventually we believe it too.
-
But what is more revolutionary than two forgotten people
drawing each other back into reality?
—  The way you love her is your revolution. Darling, won’t you sing about it?

Most people
want a fancy house
lots of money
a successful career
don’t get me wrong
all of those things would be nice
but all I really want is you
to still be there in 60 years
grabbing my hand
pulling me close
slow dancing in the living room
as you sing me your favorite song

why the hell are you guys telling us to fucking educate some damn 21-26 year old women? are you kidding me ? like kpop idols are so engrossed in the media that they should know by now !! it’s 2017 ! not the fucking 60’s . why is it so hard to sing a song without taking it too fucking far ? darkening your skin for comedic value is demeaning to people who are ridiculed for that shit everyday . a big fuck you to the guys depending them .. shit gets old

Psalm 137:3- for there our captors asked us for songs, our tormentors demanded songs of joy; they said, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”
People around us expect us to be always joyful, even when our hearts are sad. They try to cheer us, change our mood by doing things for us. But it doesn’t always help.
“Get over it,” they may say. Better said than done. What do we do when no one understand our pain? There is a place of quiet retreat…Psalm 119:50 says, “This is my comfort in my affliction: that Your word has revived me and given me life.”
God through His word revives us, comforts us and brings life and joy and peace back in our soul. If you are depressed or sad, go to God and His word, and receive His comfort.

The most inspiring advice Taylor Swift gave fans in 2014: 

“People cut other people down for entertainment, amusement, out of jealousy, because of something broken inside them. Or for no reason at all. It’s just what they do, and you’re a target because you live your life loudly and boldly. You’re bright and joyful and so many people are cynical. They won’t understand you and they won’t understand me. But the only way they win is if your tears turn to stone and make you bitter like them. It’s okay to ask why. It’s okay to wonder how you could try so hard and still get stomped all over. Just don’t let them change you or stop you from singing or dancing around to your favorite song. (…) Every time someone picks on me, I’ll think of you in the hopes that every time someone picks on you, you’ll think of me… and how we have this thread that connects us. Let them keep living in the darkness and we’ll keep walking in the sunlight.

Okay Aqours officialy announced trio/duo songs and I have been thinking about this for a few hours.
Just gonna drop some of my wishes here:

You & Mari:
Loved their scene in episode 11 and I think they could sing a really funny song together but they could also make a more serious song (fitting for episode 11). Also, I low-key ship them

Chika, Kanan & You:
They are childhood friends so a song with them singing together would be really sweet? Maybe a slow nostalgic song?

Yohane & Mari:
Probably a pair many people are hoping for. Pretty sure their song would be a little bit crazy but god just imagine both of them singing a duet together.

Dia & Ruby:
Okay μ’s already covered many types of love but I think a song covering two sisters would be really sweet? Like, family love is a type of love as well.

Kanan & Mari:
I doubt that you need an explanation for this pair haha… Garasu no Hanazono No. 2

Riko, Kanan & Dia:
Don’t really know… probably because their aesthetic. I think they could make something really elegant/traditional?

Hanamaru & Ruby:
Best friends song. We never got our RinPana duet so at least give me my HanaRuby song.

Yohane & Ruby:
Fallen Angel with her little demon :’) (ft. Dia screaming in the background & Mari’s “Pretty bomber head!” )

Hanamaru & Yohane:
Did you realise by now that I just want another first year song
I think their voices would mix well with each other though I’m not sure what kind of song they would sing together?

TL;DR: I would be fine with any duo/trio. Also I hope they will come with solo songs as well.

IT’S THE END OF AN ERA FOR BAMON BUT NOT FOR US

With the close of TVD as a series, I’m forced to evaluate my relationship with Bamon. Bamon not only introduced me to character attachments off-screen, this show made me pursue screenwriting as a profession. This show followed me through my turbulent college years and into adulthood where I have amazing friends that I’ve found through the Bamon community. So before I call this the end or an era for Bamon fans, I’d like to give the Bamily something in return besides the Bamon Fan Song. I just have a question first because I think we deserve a little something extra for all we’ve been through.

Bamily, do you want an ENTIRE BAMON ALBUM to commemorate our ship?

Hey y'all, I realize I should probably be doing special stuff for these follower milestones. Unfortunately, I hadn’t expected to pass 100 followers so quickly, so I don’t have anything planned….
However!
Since I’m always singing as a hobby and am at school as a vocal major, I have this proposition for all of you lovely people! ; )
Once we hit 250 followers, I will post a recording of me singing for y'all! Of course, you can totally suggest songs for me through comments or reblogs, I’m open to your suggestions! :3
What do you guys think? Let me know, and let’s reach that goal soon! (=゚ω゚)ノ

Story time: shit my students say

Some highlights from my freshman writing class today (we’re talking about critical reading/analysis in lit and film and I assigned each group a song/music video to study).

1. The horrified expressions on people’s faces when they read through and then had to talk about the implication of Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines lyrics. Direct quotes: “Oh my god. I’ve been singing a rape song” and, “well now that song is ruined forever for me.”

2. Listening to 3 white kids attempt to deconstruct Beyonce’s Formation. Direct quotes: "Is this in English?” “I don’t understand, is hot sauce supposed to stand for like, pepper spray during police brutality?” “Why is she sitting on a drowning cop car?” “How does she do that without hurting her neck?”

3. General horror at Pumped up Kicks by Foster the People.

My job > your job.
