Mtl moon signs? 🌹

A rose, my absolute favorite! Thank you babe! 🌹 Ok, this is my opinion and my personal experience which.. people are bound to hate on but it’s all good:

Leo Moon - My Moon sign so I may be bias, but I don’t think so because who doesn’t love the light that shines from the soul of those with a Leo Moon? They’re like little babies, they do need you to give them attention or they won’t stop whining. It can be a little pathetic at times. But whatever you deliver to the Leo Moon, they’ll deliver 10x harder. You show them love, they’ll show you their heart. You show them attitude, they’ll show you hell. They have the most heart warming smiles and they are beautiful people inside and outside. Like their element, a Leo Moon is fiery with a confident and sassy personality. It is hard to truly bring down the Leo Moon because they won’t allow it. They have a thick layer of pride and a strong sense of self. Their crown is untouchable and their throne they sit upon; unreachable. 

Sagittarius Moon - If theres a Moon sign that can show you that life is worth living so make sure you live it to the fullest.. it’s a Sagittarius Moon. Everything about the Sagittarius Moon is genuine, they are honest people. No lie, they can be a little too brutal and rude at times. But I do believe it’s because they have a no bullshit type of attitude and they choose people wisely. They don’t necessarily want pessimistic and life sucking people in their life who can’t take a joke. You can never and will never stop their party. Sagittarius Moons are hilarious, assertive and of course, like their element, fiery individuals with much personality. Behind the large smile and jovial personality, however, is a heart. They put on a bold frontier and they mask their true feelings with a laugh, but they are human. They seem to reminder others that we’re human and that it’s ok for us to make mistakes and feel ugly emotions, but I think Sagittarius Moons forget that themselves too.

Aries Moon - Some of the best and the most genuine people in my life were and are Aries Moons. I’m going to say what we all know but Aries Moons are honest people with their emotions. That is strength. They show their happiness, they show their anger and they show their sadness too, for the most part. I’m not here to make fun of them for it, but I’m here to thank them because I don’t have to guess what they’re feeling because they’d rather show me and tell me. I deeply appreciate the honesty. Not to mention that they’re fierce individuals with a lot of personality. An Aries Moon knows how to assert themselves because they are quick to react. Whether the reaction is good or bad, it’s a reaction and they won’t hide how you’ve made them feel. They’re unapologetic people too and what’s not to love about someone who is one, who is unapologetically themselves? That’s inspirational. An Aries Moon knows who they are, don’t play yourself.

Taurus Moon - I have my Moon in the 2nd House so naturally, I’m drawn to Taurus Moons. The vibe that they give off is indescribable because they make you feel so good and at peace. I can never find the words to truly describe. I feel as though they’re so breathtaking and they usually find comfort in the person they are. A Taurus Moon owns their emotions, themselves and their soul. I believe that’s why they’re so put together and stable for the most part. They don’t react right away, but when they do react it’s appropriate because they’ve processed the situation and made their decision. A Taurus Moon, to me, is empowering because they are so confident with themselves and their intentions to the point where they encourage others to do the same. Not even, they don’t have to encourage others, because others are naturally inspired by them as well. Taurus Moons are sensual and they have fine taste. Fine taste in people, food, clothes, books, etc. They know what they’re doing.

Pisces Moon - This is the Moon sign of one of my best friends and a whole bunch of other wonderful people in my life. Sometimes I feel the need to protect them because, I’m not gonna lie, they can get stepped on and befriend the wrong people. They are the most selfless and most forgiving and tolerant people I know. You want a Pisces Moon in your life to keep you sane, to comfort you when times are hard and to know that they’ll love and care for you unconditionally. In return, I always have their backs if anything. Pisces Moons are ethereal and have unmatched personalities, you won’t ever find someone like them. Contrary to popular belief, Pisces Moons aren’t these depressive people others make them out to be. If anything, a Pisces Moon can make you laugh like no other and they are one of the most optimistic people you will ever encounter. I believe it’s their nocturnal Jupiter side. A Pisces Moon loves a good laugh, they’re probably always laughing too. Don’t let what others say fool you. Yes, they can be one hell of an emotional mess, but they are quick to bounce back. They’re fun people.

Cancer Moon - Again, one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met. A Cancer Moon is strong, believe it or not, they have so much strength but a soft spot on the inside. They know how to defend themselves and especially their loved ones. The biggest mistake you can ever do is threaten the people they hold near and dear to their heart. Of course, anyone will get into a fight over their loved ones, but a Cancer Moon will go to war for them. It’s important, so I’ve learned, to be gentle with the feelings of a Cancer Moon because the slightest hurt can make them remember it forever and ever. They don’t hold a grudge like other Moon signs would, they just remember you, good or bad, by the feeling your name, your touch or your presence evokes in them. A Cancer Moon remembers, never forgets, so be careful. Not to mention, how good hearted people they are. They’re so welcoming to others and they never make people feel out of place. I guess thats why I grew to love them because they make you feel like you’re part of their family. 

Capricorn Moon - Severely underrated, Capricorn Moons are some of the most hilarious people I’ve ever encountered in my life. Stereotypically, a Capricorn Moon is known to be pessimistic and dull, but it’s the opposite. I’ve felt as though they know how to make you laugh and show you a good time. Maybe, deep inside, they are miserable but we wouldn’t really know because no one truly knows a Capricorn Moon like that. i like them though, I like how they are to themselves, observant and a little private at times. But not so much to their friends, they’re sweeter to their friends and also all-knowing. They’re old souls, thats what they are, an old soul. An old soul that simply knows how to have a good time when they get the chance to. I believe that Capricorn Moons are that stern friend that gives you a reality check when you need one, but also that friend that can cheer you up with a laugh and let you rant or vent your heart out. They understand. I think.. the most understanding Moon sign. I may say that because they are the wisest in my eyes. 

Gemini Moon - Another one of the funniest Moon signs you can come across. A Gemini Moon can talk and talk, but they can also listen and listen well. It’s hard to believe, but a Gemini Moon can and will listen to you. The only problem I truly have with them is how severely pessimistic they can be at times and also.. a tad bit dramatic. It’s obvious that a Gemini Moon is restless, nervous and anxious too. Like their other Mercurial Moon sign, a Gemini Moon can, what I like to call it, over-feel. Many emotions can swirl around and they don’t know how to deal with it so they may sigh and say “Whatever, my life sucks, it’s pointless”. But while they mull there depressingly for a while, a few minutes later they’ll be laughing and feel a little better. That’s what it’s like being a Gemini Moon, I suppose. You never know what you’re going to feel next or how you’ll react to something. Is that so? 

Virgo Moon - The Moon sign of one of my best friends and a few other people in my life. I love how caring and helpful a Virgo Moon is, I really do. Sometimes it breaks my heart how forgiving and caring they can be to the people that don’t even deserve an apology at all. That’s sad and a Virgo Moon needs someone who can protect them, in a way, because they can get taken advantage of if they’re not careful. What I don’t like is how harshly critical they can be at times. Since they don’t know their place, they can step out of line and give their opinion when no one asked and no one cares about. I suggest some Virgo Moons be a little careful with this cause they might give their two cents to someone who doesn’t even need a single one. Also, theres a hidden insecurity to Virgo Moons. They can dish out criticism, but can’t handle it back. One critic in the right spot can tear them apart. 

Scorpio Moon - I have a love/hate relationship with Scorpio Moons. I dated a Scorpio Moon before and I’m not complaining at all! But I did have rough experiences with them as well.. and they’re dead to me as I type this. I happen to really love them or really hate them. What I love about them is how they listen and care for you. A Scorpio Moon will suffer in silence, most do, for the sake of helping their loved ones. They do put their loved ones needs before theirs, believe it or not, and that is admirable and appreciated. Scorpio Moons are excellent at listening to you and that’s a quality of theirs that I love the most. They truly do listen to you and most can remember little details you’ve told them. Now on to what I don’t like or can do without about them: their envious nature, pettiness and.. suspicious acts. Theres absolutely no denying a Scorpio Moon can be envious and jealous. Most own up to this too. Personally, I just think it’s depressing that one can be so hung up on the life of someone else. It’s miserable if you ask me. Scorpio Moons, most, take pride in being petty. They know it and they don’t care. They will treat you how you treat them and are.. practically unforgivable and show no mercy. The number one problem I have with them is their suspicious behavior. How what they preach.. fails to show through their actions. I’ve had Scorpio Moons cozy up to me and spill some tea about other people that they’re friends with. I never bought into it and always questioned their loyalty. But hmm.. maybe just the ones I’ve encountered.

Libra Moon - Not my most favorite Moon sign, but I do have a good handful of wonderful Libra Moons in my life. What I adore about them is their generosity. A Libra Moon shares what they have with others, they share their beauty. They’re almost too nice! And that’s the problem I have. A Libra Moon gets their way by being nice to others and you can’t say no. Personally, I give the crown of finessing to a Libra Moon. I’ve seen Libra Moons spoil the hell out of someone and when they need something done, usually something that starts drama, they’ll go to you and ask you to do them a specific favor that is usually guaranteed to pull you in some drama. The catch is you can’t turn them down. Why? Because they’ve done so much for you already. I’ve seen this happen so many times. I’ve almost fallen victim to it too. A Libra Moon kept giving me compliments, gassing my pictures up and even buying things for me that I would decline and refuse to accept. She slowly started to drag me into some drama and ask me to choose sides, but I refused again. It is such a specific pattern that I noticed Libra Moons do. They’re wonderful people, I know they are, and maybe they’re not aware over what they’re doing. Sometimes they don’t realize that they’re dragging people into shit they don’t want no part in. I’m not dumb, I notice it. That’s why they rank so low in my list because they don’t realize when they take advantage of people. Just because you spoil people, doesn’t mean they’ll clean up your mess or take the bullet for you. You can’t buy someones trust and respect, you earn it. Preferably through actions.

Aquarius Moon - Of the countless friends I have, I have much love and respect for one Aquarius Moon. I’m not a mean person, I have some things I admire about you guys so I’ll state those before I get into what I don’t like much. You have personality, Aquarius Moons are some damn characters. You know someone is an Aquarius Moon when they be doing and saying some questionable shit with confidence. Thats how you know. You know how to make people laugh too. I’m not easily impressed and its hard to make me laugh, but you guys actually can make me laugh. Ya weird as hell, but its dumb funny. What I don’t like is the lack of care you have for the people in your life. Well, I’ll rephrase it to lack of showing care for the people in your life. It can be saddening at times because you have people who genuinely are concerned for you and adore you, but you don’t even realize that they still doubt you at times because you don’t show care. Perhaps, deep inside you do but.. we don’t know that. I don’t have much to say about Aquarius Moons because I can go on and on about what disturbs me about the Aquarius Moon but I’ll leave it at that. I know a few Aquarius Moons that like to use their friends for clout though but Imma say less lol.

normanthatisall  asked:

So...Caryl touches! Was trying to think of all the touches between them and whether it was Carol that instigates most of them or whether Daryl is more touchy than we first think? (I do!) My personal faves are his thumb rub in Consumed and the chin touch in Same Boat (the less talked about Caryl hug I think but actually one of the most important) I know you'll have a big old list of these mod that I'm sure you would love to share! 😉

You know what hon I started thinking about this earlier but was unable to write about it then and I have a suprising answer that just might blow some peoples minds. And blow a big hole in the arguement about Carol being an ‘agressor’ or ‘sexually harassing’ Daryl  as well.

So what I’m gonna do is go over the major touches between them and a give a point to whoever initiates the physical contact. Then total it up for you all and tell you what that means and might mean.

You guys ready.. ok lets go

Chupacabra Season 2

So point here for first contact goes to Carol. And this is the moment where Daryl flinches. A conditioned response to unexpected physical contact. Especially that close to his face or head/neck area. So point 1 goes to Carol.

Pretty Much Dead Already Season 2

Daryl instinctively reaches out and hauls Carol down, protecting her from daughter’s reanimated corpse. Even going as far as pulling her away so she wouldn’t see Rick shoot her. Its the first time we see Daryl do anything like this. Daryl gets this point.

so we have it at one apiece. Here’s where it gets interesting folks.

(putting behind a cut cause it might be long ha)

natasha, pierre, and i had a fucking heart attack

i’m writing up my ‘natasha pierre and great comet of 1812′ thoughts mostly for @je-suis-em-jee‘s benefit, but the rest of you sorry fucks get to come along if you like. eyy!

loads of fucking spoilers. maybe don’t click if you want to go see it—the surprises were so much fun.

EDIT [9/18/2017]: took out the page break because this show is dead and so is my heart. I love you & I miss you everyday, Great Comet.

  • so i got a seat in the orchestra to watch ‘natasha, pierre, and the great comet of 1812′ on july 3rd, 2017, year of our lord I Don’t Give a Fuck. I went in knowing some but not all the things—I knew a couple songs, all the characters, some plot points, but not how they strung together or how it ended. Which turned out to be ideal.
  • because josh groban had just ended but okieriete onoadowan hadn’t started yet, Pierre was played by Dave Malloy. when i first heard this, i was like ‘….oh. i’ll just suffer through his parts, then’ because i’d heard his pierre on the off-broadway soundtrack and it was so scratchy i had to skip several songs.
  • NEVER BEEN SO FUCKING WRONG. dave malloy was the best part by FAR.
  • his pierre was perfect. perfect. i never want to hear ‘dust and ashes’ sung any other way again
  • what was scratchy when left alone on the soundtrack became meaningful and heartfelt and totally in character when i was WITH him
  • denee benton was of course lovely. some of her acting choices were broader than i expected, but i’m not saying that like it’s a bad thing! also she was 5 feet from me at one point, doing that dance where you lean forward and and be very russian and yes it was great and i’m not over that at all
  • speaking of having a stage really close to me. like REALLY CLOSE. five feet is about accurate…
  • so at the beginning, there’s a big sound like a war siren, and a big flash of light, and SUDDENLY the actors are there among you. just roving around, talking. and some the actors come out to tell you to turn your cellphones off, and tuck your legs in. (and throw dumplings at you. not kidding. they throw boxes of dumplings.)
  • i was so very fucking lucky that the actor in front of MY small scrap of stage was GRACE MCLEAN. AUNT MARYA. five feet from me. looking at me. talking to me. throwing dumplings at the cute quirky random guy with the ginger beard who sat next to me. i had the BIGGEST smile on my face.
  • i’m so lucky, i think. i’m so lucky.
  • Anyway so she tells us “soon i will see you…on the other side!” and drifts mysteriously away, to turn into Marya. and then the play can ACTUALLY start.
  • aside: shoutout to the fucking gorgeous production design. the ratty lobby—the comet lights—the red velvety opera house/bar of the inside—every punky touch in the beautiful, beautiful costumes. this production design is my heart.
  • i’m also freakin out the whole fuckin time because….i love amber grey. and there she is. THERE SHE IS. i can see her across the room, schmoozing with the richer folks.
  • my love of amber grey is totally justified in ‘charming.’ she hit the showstopper note PERFECTLY, with her whole fucking being soaring through the rips in her voice
  • dolokov is fierce, and also very hot. perfect (underrated) casting
  • the opera scene is FUNNY.
  • the show looks different wherever you sit—i missed some things that happened in the mezzanine, but the mezzanine missed some things that happened around me (like denee benton’s part in the ‘balaga’ dance)
  • the choreography is perfect—not flashy, not distracting, but lively and attuned with the show
  • IT’S BALAGA. they gave us shakers and it was so much fucking fun
  • the ensemble seems to be having so muc hFUN with all this. genuinely crazy fucking russian drunken time
  • (i got the most expensive vodka of my life at intermission because…it felt like The Thing To Do. The Right Thing. a good choice, highly recommend)
  • anatole spins in the green coat JUST like he does in the advertisements and it’s great
  • all the actors are almost always in or around or on stage in some sense; even when Natasha or Helene shouldn’t be in a scene, logically, they often are, and it adds to the fun (and reminds you why nat is so seduced by this fun crazy life)
  • both helene and marya get on this massive drum at different points around the time of the abduction, one after the other, and i…could not believe it.
  • yes father yes father (i did not know?! that i liked this character?!)
  • how. did this. not win. more tonys.
  • *shakes head angrily at people who voted because THIS DESERVED *
  • natasha does this speed costume change on stage and i still don’t know how they did the closures (SNAPS???)
  • ingrid michaelson did good. i don’t hugely connect to sonya but i thought she did fine!
  • anatole has this moment where he just stops the show. and everybody sits and waits. and he just sits in the audience holding us all. i cannot
  • i had forgotten how beautiful joined voices in the dark sound. when the chorus sang, it was…so beautiful
  • also ginger guy (remember him? sitting next to me?) pointed out rachel chavkin, the director, sitting a few rows in front of me. she had her assistant and they were taking pages and pages of notes. fascinating (usually the director doesn’t come to every show….Ginger thought she was there to take notes on how the new cast members were working)
  • how grace mclean does those things with her voice, i don’t know
  • anatole isn’t evil like i expected
  • dave malloy. was the best part.
  • followed by my love for amber grey
  • followed by BALAGA
  • followed by me drinking vodka through all of act 2
  • i. am so. fucking glad. i got to see this beautiful musical.
  • it was maybe a lil life changing. to see so much beauty. to be IN so much beauty. to get to dip in and out of this punk-ass life i’ve never achieved
  • I loved it. I loved it. I loved it. I treasure it. And my little shaker from Balaga. And the vodka cup.
  • Because….there’s a war going on out there, somewhere.
  • And Andrei isn’t here.

Day 1 - Crossovers: Klaus and Caroline as Nevada and Rogan from Hidden Legacy Series by Ilona Andrews

When truthseeker Nevada Baylor took the most challenging case of her career, she didn’t expect to uncover a dangerous conspiracy, and much less fall in love with Connor “Mad” Rogan, a billionaire telekinetic Prime—the highest rank of magic user.

Together they faced foes intent to destabilise Houston while Nevada learned to accept the full promise of her powers.

Now a Prime herself and head of the newly-established House Baylor, she had accepted Rogan’s proposal. The threat of Caesar and the organization was still present but, in the meantime, Rogan wanted Nevada to know the benefits of being a Prime and show her what the world has to offer.

Dunkirk

Wow. This film is brilliant in every single way. 

From the very first frame, Christopher Nolan snatches your attention and does not give it back or loosen his grip until the credits roll. Dunkirk is insanely intense. I haven’t held my breath throughout an entire movie since I first saw Whiplash three years ago and that feeling is exhilarating and so rare to have nowadays. 

Knowing Nolan, I walked in having no idea what to expect at all. His take on the war genre proved to be absolutely fascinating and new; completely fresh in comparison to all the other war movies I’ve seen. We barely know any characters at all and there is barely any dialogue at all. Typically these elements are what drives movies to be great; character arcs and background stories, witty dialogue, deep emotional attachment to the characters and so forth.  But the lack of these very things are actually what makes it so damn good. We are made to feel exactly how the soldiers at Dunkirk would’ve felt. No speaking or getting to know one another, constant fear, tension, panic and dread. This is totally different from previous war films which have always been awful to watch gore-fests, dialogue intensive, emotional and showing the violence and horrors of war in a physical manner. Dunkirk does not show any blood, gore or shocking violence either. It does not need to. In fact it does the opposite and with its lack of dialogue and character developments, manages to open a new perspective into what is was like to really be a soldier at Dunkirk and how terrifying and tense it was.  This new style makes this film something incredibly engrossing and definitely a film that will remain amongst the great war films. 

The tension that lasted from the first scene to the end was enhanced so powerfully by the soundtrack. As usual Hans Zimmerman manages to perfectly portray the visual emotions and tensions into music and a frightening auditory spectacle. The OST fits so well and remains so tense genuinely keeping you on the edge of your seat. 

Now for more technical talk as to what makes this film a work of art. The shots are incredible. Every use of the camera was chosen exactly the right way. The long shots of the ocean and the beach were astounding. As well as the shots in which hundreds of soldiers duck and fall to the ground it bombings. The synchronicity of everyone is beautiful and terrifying to watch. There is also something so satisfying about the colours and style of shooting. Everything just works and it is beautiful to watch. Visually, the film is stunning but now paired with the sound is what makes this film a real great. Freaking awesome sound. I know good sound when I hear it but anyone would be able to pick up that the sound editing and mixing in this film is bloody insane. Everything sounded so crisp and clear and accurate. Underwater scenes, bombing scenes, bullets riddling metal, planes. The bombs were especially good though. The levelling of the soundtrack with the on scene sound effects was spot on too. 

The cast even though a few were typicals of Nolan were all perfect. Fionn Whitehead was incredibly good considering his age and that this is his first feature film. All respect goes to him because his thunder has been taken away by Harry Styles. Although I must say Harry is really fucking good. He has an incredible knack for mannerisms and body language. He also shows emotion really really well on his face. Never ever saw that level of skill coming from him but then again Nolan does not screw around with casting. Tom Hardy never ceases to amaze me and for me, still remains criminally underrated as an actor. He literally acts with his eyes the whole film and it never ever comes across as less intense than other scenes because he really is just that good. Kenneth Branagh was one of the two most impressive for me. His facial expressions had me copying him when the planes from above approach with the camera slowly pulling away from his face. Spectacular. Basically everyone was brilliant in all honesty. Mark Rylance, my other favourite, proved yet again why he won best Supporting Actor with all his onscreen time showing emotions I never knew could be expressed and seen on a human face. The lack of dialogue is almost unnoticed because of the level of communication through expression in each actors faces and body language. 

Dunkirk is a masterpiece and needs to be seen on the biggest screen possible. I saw it in Extreme Screen and it was so visceral as every bullet and bomb was felt as the sound shook the theatre. If you can afford to see it in IMAX, go. This is one of the rare movies that needs to be seen on a big screen to experience its full glory. Dunkirk is the best film I’ve seen that’s come out this year and I couldn’t recommend it any higher

My favorite idols who have their solo careers

I first thought of making a top 10 list of kpop group members who have their solo albums but I had such a hard time choosing the tenth that I opted to just countdown my favorite 9. 

9. Bobby. This member of iKON won Show Me the Money (SMTM) 3 so that kind of stablishes the fact that this boy can rap. I know he technically has not put up a solo album but he did release his single Holup as part of the album of the unit MOBB (Mino and Bobby). I really think he has huge potential since he’s only 21. Maybe if he improves in his songwritting we can really see some interesting music from him in the future. He also has a nice singing voice that actually reminds me of GD not because their voices are similar but because they both have really unique voices.

8. Henry. For those of you who like watching korean variety shows you probably know who he is because he’s been in several shows. If you’re into kdramas then you must watch him in Oh my venus with Shin Min Ah and So Ji Sub. However he is mostly a multi-talented songwriter and has a variety of music that has pop, ballad, classical and hip hop influences. He even wrote a song for EXO’s upcoming album The War. He’s canadian and was scouted by SM to form Super Junior M (the mandarin sub unit of Super Junior). 

7. Kyuhyun. I have a huge soft spot for Kyuhyun. My brain knows he’s actually not the best of vocalists and he doesn’t write his own stuff plus his ballads are not too interesting but there is something about the tone of his voice that makes me react emotionally to every song he sings. Needless to say he is my bias in Super Junior on top of that he’s super funny as he has shown in Radio Star and New Journey to the West. He’s currently doing his service and probably we won’t be able to listen to anything from him in two years. His only hit At Gwanghwamun is a must listen but I have so many songs I love like Blah blah, The parting, Piano Forest and Hope is a dream that doesn’t sleep (OST of Baking King Kim Tak Goo).

6. Jay Park. I know calling Jay Park an idol at this point is stretching it a bit and he probably wouldn’t like it but since he once was the leader of 2PM I feel he does qualify. Although I’ve been listening to his songs ever since I got into kpop I didn’t know much about him until recently which kind of only makes me like him more. Controversy aside I love how he rose to success after struggling as an idol. His r&b and hip hop music is so good. Also I think he’s a positive influence on the korean music scene. My favorites are his sexy songs like Sex Trip and All I want to do.

5. Lay. I actually don’t like M-pop. I think it always sound like something you’ve already heard but it’s Lay, my EXO-L heart is predisposed to like anything they do however I do think his first mini album is really good. He opted for an r&b classic sound and it really fits him. My favorite song is his title track Lose Control that shows his song writting skills. 

4. Taemin. In my opinion, Taemin (Shinee) doesn’t have a great live voice so when he released Danger in 2014, which by the way concided with me really getting into kpop (I only liked EXO before), I didn’t really understand it. However SM always does things right when it comes to Taemin, every come back he does whether is in Korea or Japan it always has a different sound and most of all a complex and distinct sound. My favorite song of his is Goodbye (Sayonara Hitori) but Press your number was drilled into my head for most of 2016. The new song Flame of Love for his japanese comeback is also amazing. Because he is such a flawless dancer his stages are always on point and he can really stand on his own.

3. GD. He’s just out of this world, isn’t he? A lot of people have called him a genius and he would actually be my number one if it wasn’t for the fact that the songs I like the most from him are Big Bang songs not his solo stuff. Having said that he’s just so good as a solo act. The range of what he can do is amazing. He’s a crazy performer, a great rapper and of course an off the charts producer. His singing voice is just plain weird and I’m not even talking about the way he bends the words while singing but just his tone. I of course like his album Coup d’etat but I’m so obsessed with Untitled, 2014.

2. Jonghyun. I’ve talked about this before in this blog, but when I listened to Shinee’s Jonghyun album She is I became obsessed with it and went back and listened to his previous records and his latest album all made me a fan of his music. I wouldn’t call him underrated but he hasn’t had a huge hit just yet. I think it’s kind of just a matter of time. Let me out, Inspiration and White T-Shirt are my favorite songs.

1. Zico. I don’t have much to say he’s just Zico. If you have been living under a rock or you’re not into kpop then I can say he’s a rapper and a singer member of Block B. Most of all he’s an amazing producer. I think what really showed that side of his was SMTM 4, in each stage of the competition he created beats for his team and the results were chart topping hits like Fear and Okey Dokey. Of course SMTM and Mino had to do a lot with the success of those songs but it still is impressive. I love when he does songs with an indie feel like She’s a baby and I am you and you’re me. but there’s really nothing I’ve heard from him as a solo artist that I haven’t liked. Of course his highlights have to be Eureka, Veni Vidi Vici, Bermuda Triangle and Anti

I feel like Almighty Johnsons is an extremly underrated thing here on tumblr. I mean, we like gods if Thor and Loki are anything to go off of. Especially Norse gods. We like brotherly relationships, judging by Supernatural. We love an attractive, sarcastic bastard, even if we do want to punch him in the face most of the time. We like badass ladies who know how to put a self-absorbed fucker in his place. And I think we could all use a show that isn't constantly trying to rip our hearts out. Just now and then.

If you guys are curious as to why i made this blog, i made it because although Tomco has become a much more popular ship, it still feels very underrated in the fandom.

You never see blogs talk about their relationship and how special and important it is to their characters, or find theories about how they could happen, or even see at most a lot of people treating it like it’s anymore then a one-time thing.

It’s like Friend-Enemies happened, then the fandom chose to forget about their relationship immediately afterwards.

I mean i know it’s not the focus of the show, but it’s one of the most interesting relationships that show has presented us and no-one talks about it having any meaning or point at all.

(( Because y’know, it doesn’t matter because it’s not star//co))

And after awhile of scrolling around the fandom, I kinda noticed their relationship is just overall ignored and kinda put down unless you ship them.

And i always thought it was a bit sad, because their relationship is especially important to Tom’s character, but it’s blatantly ignored how important it is for Tom to have someone like Marco in his life. Not someone like Star, or Janna, someone like Marco, someone with patience, who actually is willing to help Tom with his issues and won’t provoke them easily, who takes Tom’s feelings into account, and could easily understand what it’s like to be socially awkward and ashamed of liking more feminine things.

Whether you like them platonically or romantically, Tom needs someone like Marco to help him with what he’s going through, and it’s clear Marco is so far the biggest provider for Tom’s character development.

I wanted to make a blog where their relationship could be appreciated for just how nice it is to see something like this on a kid’s show. It’s not everyday you see a Enemies to Friends (To possible lovers) story between two guys, who end up providing emotional support and respect for each other.

You can easily name a few ships out there that are like Star//co, that have been done just like Star//co.

But you can’t with Tomco…it’s more unique with how they choose to do it.

It’s great to see Tom, an emotionally distressed and possibly abused kid, finally find someone out there who actually thinks of him as a person with feelings (Not a monster or demon, a PERSON) and who actually has a lot in common with him.


I’m not gonna be one of those crazy blogs out there that flat out says that Tomco has to happen or that it will happen… (Because forcing something down someone’s throat like that is a huge turn off for me..). But nobody in this fandom should treat their relationship like it isn’t important or that it could never involve into anything as great as Star and Marco’s relationship.

We’re in a new era where gay ships can happen on kid shows, and if the Star crew wanted to do this, they could.

it took three episodes to make Tom and Marco into friends, and it didn’t come off as forced at all, the transition went rather smooth. Whose to say their relationship can’t become deeper if it can be handled so well?

There was a reason the crew made them friends, their relationship is going somewhere in the end, they wouldn’t have been building this relationship and kept it relevant if it didn’t come into play later.


In the end, i wanted there to be a blog out there that actually talked about them that wasn’t biased to the leading ship, and that put them on equal plains with it.

The tomco community should have a place to enjoy and discuss the ship together.

Tomco is not a lesser relationship, the idea behind it is wonderful and I hope more and more episodes get dedicated to just these two in the future.

(( Sorry if this came off as a rant in some places, but this is something i did need to get off my chest.

I like this fandom, but it’s had it’s fair share of issues that get on my nerves ))

Who do you think is the most underrated character in the movies? Also what's your opinion on the wizard from the prisoner of Azkaban who dosent use his wand to mix his drink while he's reading a science book?

It’s not real an underrated thing, but I hate how Percy’s story was practically removed from the movies. Like he just shows up in OotP in that one scene, and unless one has read the books, one wouldn’t even know he turned on his family and Harry and all that.

OH! I loved that random wizard from PoA. He wasn’t reading just any science book, it was A Brief History of Time, and I geeked out very hard the first time I saw that!! ~Taiga

okay but i feel like we’re not appreciating alec killing azazel enough like. alexander gideon lightwood. the most underrated shadowhunter of all time. he hadn’t even killed a demon until he was 18 because he was too busy protecting jace and isabelle alec lightwood the one who showed up to his boyfriends house, saw azazel, and literally got him in one shot /one shot/ not even 5 minutes after JACE HERONDALE the most ESTEEMED SHADOWHUNTER OF THE TIME acknowledged how difficult it would be to hit the spot the size of a PEA IF YOU COULD EVEN DO THAT alexander badass lightwood is my underrated baby appreciate him 2k17

So April 1st is Rachmaninoff's bday (talk about unlucky) meaning time to listen to his 4 Piano concertos! And hopefully you'll post a work of his for today. But here's a question: Instead of a top 5, what are your top 10 works from him? :P

Ironic because I wouldn’t consider him a “humorous” composer. But yes I definitely will post something by him today. And also, thanks for the challenge! My personal top 10 Rachmaninoff works…

10 - Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom: A beautiful choral work, though a bit slow at times. Very contemplative. The ending jubilation that it builds up to is my favorite moment.

9 - Suite no. 1 [Fantaisie-Tableaux] for two pianos: The idea behind this work makes me think of Debussy, only because it’s four musical pictures without a strong relation to each other. The opening Barcarolle is gorgeous, and the dramatic Easter is a great ending.

8 - Symphonic Dances: One of the few Rachmaninoff works I’ve heard live. May as well be his fourth symphony. The opening dance’s harsh harmonies and pronounced rhythms gets my heart going.

7 - Cello Sonata: A work I found in high school, and I fell in love immediately at the opening, with its cold drone that immediately rushes into a dramatic storm. And of course I’m a sucker for any piece of music that starts dark but has a happy ending.

6 - Piano Sonata no. 2: Like a concerto for solo piano. When I discovered this work, it was through Alexis Weissenberg rushed and electric 16 minute speed through, and it blew me away. And when I heard other pianists play it at a more conventional pace, I fell deeper in love. The longing middle movement is the highlight, and the ecstatic coda to the finale makes me feel like I’m at the top of a mountain.

5 - Isle of the Dead: A piece I fell in love with in high school. When I started getting into classical, I was slowly developing my patience for longer and longer works [back then, 8 minutes was long, and 20 was forever]. This was one of the works that helped me transition, and I was blown away by how effortlessly the music was woven as one continuous flow through sections that felt so organic. Also because I was a little bit emo in high school, I was obsessed with all things 19th century Gothic and death in general.

4 - Variations on a Theme by Chopin: Another piece I found in high school. Since I loved Chopin, and I loved Rachmaninoff, the idea that Rachy did a set of variations off of his music made me rush to get it on my first gen iPod pronto. It’s an underrated work, a bit long, but worth it because you can hear the diversity in Rachmaninoff’s musical thought. It’s got all his trademarks; double function form, the use of cannons, Orthodox “bell” like motifs, lovely melodies, devilish piano technique, etc.

3 - Symphony no. 2: I discovered this work browsing the classical section in the iTunes store, and I did a gamble that goes against common advice: I judged an album by its cover. The cover of a recording by Sir Simon Rattle and the Los Angeles Philharmonic on the Seraphim label had an art deco painting of a woman on the back of a pegasus in a cloudy sky. That drew me in. And the music is so much more fantastic than I’d figured. At that time, the longest symphony I’d heard of [an entire hour?? Crazy talk!] and I loved every second of it. Especially because the first movement was woven like Isle of the Dead, which I was used to and wanted more of.

2 - Piano Concerto no. 2: One of the first pieces that got me into classical. Back when I was slowly acquainting myself with piano music by Chopin, Liszt, and Beethoven, and also Bach’s organ music, I came across a scene from an anime “Nodame Cantabile” where they had animated the main character playing the first movement of the concerto. I was surprised to see any show dedicate so much time to the music itself, instead of fragmenting it for common audience patience. When I listened to it, I thought it was the most beautiful piano concerto I’d ever heard. I still think that.

1 - All Night Vigil: I’m going to say it: his most underrated work. Everyone knows Rachmaninoff for his piano music, his “pop” melodies, his colorful orchestration…but comparatively his greatest masterpiece is ignored. I mean, it isn’t a huge surprise. A cappella music is already a niche category, a niche within a niche from the public [a specific type of classical music that’s less recognizable/accessible], and add a false cultural barrier [being specifically Russian Orthodox a cappella music] to make it more obscure to the general public. But the music is so…I don’t know. I’m not religious, but I understand what people mean when they say they feel spiritual connections. Listening to this work, back in college when walking around campus at night under gentle snow, was the closest I’ve come to having a profound religious experience.

El Ángel is the shit and here’s why...

When we heard about sexy female characters in fighting games, we often think of

Cammy

Mai Shiranui

or Ivy Valentine

These characters are amazing to play, but there are others that are just as awesome. like Rainbow Mika, or the most underrated character of them all,; Ángel.

I baffles me how this character’s been overlooked for so long; she’s not exactly subtle.

She’s a Mexican POC enjoys partying, soccer and have a good time, so it was easy to see why many latinos relate to her

But she can also show her more sadistic and ruthless nature when she fights

Her outfit shows her flirtatious and playful nature (i know it looks kinda dumb but I still love it).

Gameplay-wise she uses wrestling and muay thai to rush down her opponents to finishing’em of with a sick grab

With the new King of Fighters XIV coming out and the return of this wonderful character, I hope she gets even more popular 

Bonus: SHE’S BASED ON DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON

the white princess is honestly trash but lbr it’s some quality trash content and we get to see an updated live action ver of elizabeth and henry. plus the show def seems more committed to giving the characters more life than the novel ever attempted and more committed to actually exploring henry and elizabeth’s relationship.

philippa gregory wrote that novel almost in a way where it felt like she hated her own characters, the show seems to care far more. and on tv sex, scandals, and controversy seem to sell so while im disgusted with *that* scene it’s becoming more evident the showrunners used it as pure shock value to try and drive ratings and as irritating and disgusting as it is, it’s part of their marketing. so when all these people question how can you fangirl over the show and be excited about it despite that scene it’s because as ugly as it is, it’s part of their show business and honestly i’d rather focus on the fact that one of my fav and one of THE most underrated historical characters’/couples of all time is finally getting some sort of attention and spotlight

plus, let’s be honest we’re all trash for some pretty gifsets of our otps.

please support nine muses or, at least, please help us MINE support them:

  • watch their remember mv, their recent comeback, on their channel or on genie even just once a day. fan or not, the views are already a big help
  • if you have accounts on any of the korean music sites, please stream their comeback song or even just add them to your playlist. the number of plays help
  • buying the physical album is most ideal but buying digitally can help too. if you can do both, please do both
  • tweet about them, use hashtags like  #나인뮤지스 #기억해 or make posts whenever wherever about namyu. tell your friends, tell your friends to tell their friends about namyu. let’s not just complain amongst ourselves about how underrated they are, but let’s also continuously promote them in every way we can
  • highlight namyu’s music but also showcase the personalities of all the members, past and present. they’re incredibly fun and funny people but not many get to see that bc of how little resources we have (our previous eng translating team have become inactive, so just bless the kind individuals who do translate for i-mines from time to time)
  • vote for them on music shows (9mnet posted instructions on how to vote on shows i think). most of us namyu fans are completely aware that with the competition rn, namyu doesn’t stand a chance but maybe by getting the numbers higher or their rankings on these shows higher, we can get people curious about them. we can get more people to watch their mvs or buy their music
  • make edits or gifs or videos or hell even fics of namyu, bc people are affected or moved in different ways and we don’t know what exactly can turn them into fans (i personally got into kpop bc of a certain gifset, who knows maybe there’d be more who would get to experience the same beginning as me)
