The Get Down: Season 1 Part 1 -
Ronald “Ra-Ra” Kipling [1/?]
They call me King Ra, hear the fanfare when I enter the cipher, fly girls follow me like I’m the Pied Piper. Proper preparation prevents piss-poor performances, Get Down Brothers’ presentation for your enjoyment.
OK BUT GUYS I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HOW YUURI GOES FROM BEING A BLUSHING
MESS BECAUSE OF A SIMPLE TOUCH, TO FULL ON “LET ME WASH YOUR HAIR”.
THAT’S THE RELATIONSHIP BUILD UP I WANT TO SEE.
And i’ve said this before but in the beach sequence there’s no longer any type of boundaries when it comes to touching, their physical contact now is just another part of their relationship and this is huge because if we see the timeline of events, Yuuri and Victor WILL HAVE A WHOLE LOT MORE MOMENTS TOGETHER, EVEN AFTER THE GRAND COMPETITION. GOING TO FESTIVALS TOGETHER, EATING TOGETHER, DANCING IN THE BEACH, FOOLING AROUND, THEY’LL HAVE TIME FOR ALL OF THAT.
They are both facing the preassure of time, 23 and 27, one is being expected to retire soon, while the other thinks it might be time to do it, and we know “Figure skaters are only competitive for a short time…” But without even realizing it themselves, they will have time to think and face this future together, from this point on they’ll have to take decision thinking in the other and I couldn’t be happier.
So this came about in no time. 2 days to be exact and it feels like the mix came pouring out of our hearts with deep and chill influences. Southern summer vibes echo under an epic synth that towers over 7ths and 5ths.
For the first time in a billion years I L O V E the Italian entry to the Eurovision Song Contest without any kind of doubt but I’m scared shitless that tumblr will just label it as racist and appropriative (lyrics are all in Italian and people on this god forsaken website tend to Never Do Their Reaserch Before They Open Their Piehole) when it’s THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF THAT
The title literally means “The Westerner’s Karma” and it parodizes westerners thinking themselves knowledgeable, masters even, of Asian cultures/philosophies/traditions because they once took a yoga class or the googled “buddhism” and became overnight experts. While when you actually look at them up close they just look like “naked dancing monkeys” making fool out of themselves.
