  • Shiro thinks “This Is War” by Thirty Secound to Mars is a classic, so when it comes on his workout playlist, he always loves to sing it with you, and just get really into it because it lights a fire in him that he cant get enough of. 
  • Keith may not be the best singer, but he cant help himself when the song “Kids” by MGMT plays. he doenst know why, either. so when he hears you sing it, his heart swells, and he’ll hum it along with you. 
  • During one of Lance’s teenage phases, he declared that his “anthem” was “Youre Gonna Go Far Kid” by The Offspring. even now, when it plays, he reminisces so hard.. so when you sing it, he just has heart eyes for hours. 
  • Sing, or hum “Everything’s Alright” - by Laura Shigihara and Hunk will be in tears. happy tears, and a little bit of sad tears just because the song strikes his heartstrings just the right way, especially when its from you.
  • Pidge didn’t really like Florence and the Machine at first, when her father introduced her to them with the song “The Dog Days Are Over” but now, with everything that happened, it means a lot to her. Sing it for her if you want to see her sob.

Common Positions of the Medieval Lower Class

Acrobats/Jugglers: These performers traveled about the countryside in search of either an inn, tavern, fair, castle, or court where they could perform. Since they could go long periods of time without finding a place to perform, many of them turned to theft and other crimes to make ends meet.

Adamist: A gardener or tiller of any field.

Adamite: Term for a nudist, usually a poor pilgrim or hermit who was doing penance for something.

Last year in school I had to make my own version of the Last Supper, and this is what I came up with :3

John Hurt and Peter Capaldi weren’t linked with the Doctor at that time, so to fill up the blanks I added River Song and Captain Jack Harkness :D

Pippin's Song in the Book vs the Movie

(I just wanted to take this opportunity to compare Pippin’s song in the movies to the song in the book - after writing about it’s use in the trailer (see this post), I had the itch, you know? So, I’m sorry for sort of hijacking your messages, lol.)

So, the song that Pippin sings in the Return of the King movie is just the last verse of a longer song sung in Fellowship of the Ring. Tolkien introduces the song with a bit of background information, saying:

They began to hum softly, as hobbits have a way of doing as they walk along, especially when they are drawing near to home at night. With most hobbits it is a supper-song or a bed-song; but these hobbits hummed a walking-song (though not, of course, without any mention of supper and bed). Bilbo Baggins had made the words, to a tune that was as old as the hills, and taught it to Frodo as they walked in the lanes of the Water-valley and talked about Adventure.

So, we learn a few important things here. First, that the song was written by Bilbo. Second, that Bilbo wrote the words, but the tune was much much older. Third, that it was about Adventure. And fourth, that it was a walking song. This last part suggests to me that the tune itself would be very different from the slow melancholy tune Pippin sings in the movies - that song would certainly not motivate any purposeful walking at all! It was probably a traditional walking/working tune that Bilbo simply assigned new lyrics to. And, given the cheery lyrics, I believe that the song probably had a pretty upbeat tune (such as the one used by The Hobbitons in their rendition of the song, which I posted earlier today.)

Looking specifically at the changes made to the lyrics between the book and the movie is pretty fascinating:

Not only were the cheerful lines removed from the verse, but a small - yet significant - change was made to one of the lines. While in the book the hobbits sing the encouraging line “Mist and twilight, cloud and shade, Away shall fade! Away shall fade!”, saying basically that the darkness will pass, in the movie Pippin sings the much bleaker “Mist and shadow, cloud and shade. All shall fade! All shall fade!”, which seems to be saying the exact opposite. Peter Jackson and company obviously have a gift for making tiny changes that alter Tolkien’s happy songs into much more ominous versions of themselves - for another example see this post on the “Lord of the Silver Fountains” song.

Anyway, I guess the point of this post (if there is any point) is that while the repeated use of Pippin’s song in the Hobbit trailer creates fascinating parallels within the movie!verse, trying to keep that same significance within the books is going to be difficult, since its meaning and use are so different in each medium.
