i just.. . can’t get over sign of the times. there is so much feeling in it - hope, desperation, strength, vulnerability, pain, love, bravery - and all of it is so palpable, i feel like i can taste it in the air while the song’s playing. he pulls you in at the very first note and tangles you into his soul with every note after that. the energy in his voice just. it washes over you, wave after wave, like an ocean of electricity and emotion.
I love everything about you; your gummy smile, your voice, your personality, the way you dance.. I’m in love
You’re my inspiration Min Yoongi
every songs that you wrote makes me adore you much more
when you rap.. oh my god, istg my heart stop beating
when you mentioned that you started to suffer with social phobia in your song “The Last”, I can relate to you because I’ve been struggling with it since i was a kid. I want to find my way out too. I want to be just like you, unafraid to achieve my dreams despite having it
hope you have the best birthday ever and I’m going to support you and BTS till the end
In Black Orpheus, Brazil and Carnival become the backdrop to the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. In one of the more tragic love stories in Greek mythology, Eurydice is bitten by a snake on her wedding day and dies. Determined to bring back his love, Orpheus heads to the depths of hell to plead for her life. He is granted the chance, being told by the lord of the underworld that he can free Eurydice — he must walk back to the surface and she will follow, but if he looks back before they reach the light, she will fade away forever. Right before he reaches the surface, Orpheus — concerned that his love is having a hard time keeping up — turns back, watching her fade back into the darkness.
Black Orpheus brings this story into the contemporary world, utilizing the carnival as a metaphor for the supernatural world. Death, brought to life by a man in a skeleton suit, is pursuing Eurydice, and Orpheus — for as long as he can manage — tries to fight him off. Building on a classical idea of heaven and the afterlife, one that predates Christianity, the film does not offer love, forgiveness or belief as a saving grace. As noble and true as Orpheus’ love is, it cannot overcome death. Love is a part of life, and maybe the best part of living, but it still cannot help us transcend our mortality. Perhaps this is what’s so powerful about Jesus, as he taught that the capacity to love (and forgive) would ensure some kind of immortality. The film doesn’t ignore this completely, allowing love to live on through song.
Sex plays a pivotal role in this world, and it is portrayed as much through the environment as the actions. Romantic desire is conveyed through music, the sweetness of Orpheus’ song a symbol of his desire. Music is an art form of the spirit, and it becomes a perfect vehicle for communicating love. You can’t hold a song in your hands like you can a body. Rather than sensuality related to touch, this one is related to listening and feeling. The bossa nova rhythms that the film popularized reflect this sensual coolness. The music is warm and inviting, romance built on trust rather than lust.
Radically, Black Orpheus also portrays sex without shame. Sex is an expression of love, as much as it is a fun pastime. The aesthetics of sexual performance are intertwined deeply with carnival. Sex is a playground for adults while also being a celebration of love. Courtesy of the costumes and music, the environment is one that is a celebration of life and sex. As the myth itself is about the cyclical nature of life and death, sex plays a pivotal role in this circle. Unlike some more puritanical films that draw a line in the sand between the two, this film embraces sex as multiplicitous. This somehow makes the love more noble, because it is not confused with lust, and sex becomes a celebration rather than a symbol of it.

Open up your game/Bodyshop and your music player of choice.
Put your playlist on random and generate 6 songs. If you get the same artist/song twice, skip until you get a new one. You can swap out the older song for the newer one but you can’t keep both. If you don’t like a song you can honestly skip it lol. This is for fun!
Make one Sim based on each of the songs you got! You can use anything related to it for inspiration - the song title, the artist, the lyrics, even the music video or promos from the song.
If you share your results, talk about what inspired you and why you chose the final result!
Bonus idea: Listen to your Sim’s song on repeat as you make them to really get into the concept.
