[LYRICS]

YOU&ME - ASTRO

On a warm spring day do you remember us  
We used to be hesitant, our poor image
We can’t hide
It was the beginning
It is lovely all around that feeling
Especially when I look at you
When I am with you it becomes sweeter
I can’t believe itI am your wish
Only you are my light
At that same place
I can be happy
The story we create
Do you want to walk together
On the flower path
That unfolds before our eyesYou you you and me
And you you you
And thank you
You you you
Drawing our pictures together
When it was tiring and difficult I thought of you
Good thoughts came
Just just just you guys
Because I’ve fallen for Aroha
Listen well
To the problem I had thought was simple
You had decided it and
Firmly and solidly made it and so
To me again you
Sweetly calm my heart
In the future We will be much better
Surprisingly we will give you
Much more of our love
Us forever until the end for a long time
I felt it from the first meeting
We are destiny
Let’s go together again together
Let’s go make heaven
In a flash this moment is like a movie
I’m curious
I am your wish
Only you are my light
At that same place
I can be happy
The story we create
Do you want to walk together
On the flower path
That unfolds before our eyes
Do you remember that time
It is the day I first saw you right
We were shy then
When i saw you
I became really happy
What I do with you I will always do it together with you
My thoughts were really crowded but
I sang to you
One step two step three step
Do you want to walk together
By your side
I can be happy
One step two step three step
When it is hard when it is tiring
Do you want to walk together the two of us
On the flower path
That unfolds before our eyes You you you and me
And you you you
And thank you
You, you, you
Drawing our pictures together
I thought if you when it was tiring and difficult
Good thoughts came
Just, just, just you guys

One.

you were a little girl and I

was your next door neighbour

you were the top student and I

sat in detention as a hobby


Two.

you were the girl whose head was

always buried in a book

I was the one who pushed you

out of the way

I don’t know why


Three.

I remember the dizzying bar lights

and the sweet, sweet smell of something

like drinking melted sugar, but sweeter

I think it’s a drug

I think it’s called love


Four, Five, Six, Seven.

you were the sun; I was the moon

best friends, yet never together

shining, but I was always using your light

I don’t really remember what happened

maybe I faded away because you

stopped looking at me


Eight.

I stopped trying to find you

or maybe you gave up on me

I saw you once across the street,

I saw you mouth, steam

coming from your mouth

I hope it’s

‘next life’


Nine.

I remember the first time you kissed me

I saw heaven, and remembered everything

you were a goddess

and I was a demon, cursed to live life

as a mortal, over and over

but I think we saw each other

and just knew

9 lives (#141) | luna

Home
She & Him
Home

I could be your state, and I could be your nation
It doesn’t get better than home, now, does it?
Doesn’t get better than home, now, does it?
I could be your welcome, I could be your greeter
I could be sweet, and I could be sweeter
I want to be where your heart is home

"It's about a bunch of women overthrowing the patriarchy with the power of gasoline," or, I'm still not over Mad Max: A Review

In bulleted list format because I’m not even close to being able to form coherent sentences about this movie. I will endeavor not to make all points just me screaming and making devil horns tho. This is also probs gonna get spoilery y’all.

  • first off, i am so fucking 100% about this current trend of making action movies that remind me of the ones i grew up watching w/ my dad, but without all the gross sexist bullshit like yes, please, this is the content i am here for
  • furiosa is my wife and i love her in all ways and seeing her be allowed to be vulnerable and defeated and that not negating from her being strong and powerful was amazing
  • gosh jeez dang i love that there were no Strong Female Characters™, but just women who are people, real and flawed and wonderful
  • also i’m so so so fucking glad that the wives were never treated as inconvenient or blamed by the narrative for being physically weaker, for not wanting to kill, for not being competent the way furiosa is like this movie isn’t about that even a little
  • this movie is about redemption from violence, about finding a better way
  • i’ve seen the ending described as a tragedy, that each movie ends with max worse off then he started but i disagree
  • yes the ending is definitely bitter sweet, but i think it’s ultimately an ending about hope, about dismantling toxic power structures and building something better, something nurturing from their ashes
  • DOOF WARRIOR. FLAME GUITAR. YES. HELL FREAKING YES.
  • i love the visual language of these movies, the world building is so on point and perfect and didn’t need words to do it with. so good. if ur wondering what “show don’t tell” means watch fury road and see the masters do it
  • IT WAS JUST TWO HOURS OF ACTUAL EXPLOSIONS AND IT WAS SO GR8
  • knowing that mras were upset about all the Gross Feminist Propaganda just made it so much sweeter
  • i really really really fucking love what they did with nux’s character. at first i wasn’t even a little bit interested in his character arc, until the scene where he was failed yet again to Die Historic and he’s so hurt and ashamed and afraid and then capable is just so gentle and kind to him, so empathetic and it meant so much to him he decided to fight for that instead and just agh, kid!! this fucking kid!!!
  •  in any other movie he would’ve just been another mook to mow down, used for cheap drama with his Inevitable Betrayal and then discarded
  • but not in this movie, not here. here he is redeemed by kindness like max is, here someone helps him unlearn all the toxic myths he’s been raised believe and he finds something better to believe in and it’s so sweet. he’s just the fucking sweetest kid, and he’s worthy for it!!
  • like that’s the moment when he earns his glory, when he choses not to die with a bang, but when instead he chooses to fight for someone else
  • just a small thing, but i liked how the scene w/ splendid dying and they have to cut her open to try and save her baby didn’t focus on her being cut open. any other movie would’ve panned lovingly over her bloody wrecked body. would’ve objectified her for it. but the focus of this scene wasn’t on her, ruined,and i respected that.
  • and it’s been said before but fucking thank jesus this movie managed to talk about the sexual objectification of women without having to show it
  • like we don’t need to see them being tortured and raped and made victims
  • instead we got to see them fight back and heal
  • THERE WAS NO FORCED AWKWARD ROMANCE BETWEEN MAX & FURIOSA YES YES YES
  • no instead they were the truest greatest palemance
  • 100% drift compatible brotp
  • AND THE BADASS OLD LADY BRIGADE
  • AND A DISABLED FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER
  • AND JUST WE WERE SPOILED WITH FEMALE CHARACTERS
  • NOT EVEN PACIFIC RIM MANAGED TO HAVE MOST OF THE MAIN CAST BE WOMEN
  • AND SO MANY CAR CHASES
  • AND EXPLOSIONS
  • AND A FUCKING CRAZY NUTS LIGHTNING DUST STORM
  • AND
  • JSUT
  • YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  • THAT THIS MOVIE EXISTS IS SO IMPORTANT AND WONDERFUL AND I AM SO GLAD I GOT TO WATCH IT
  • 10/10 A+ WOULD SCREAM ABOUT AGAIN
