the music the acting everything

so i didn’t sleep and i just binge-watched 13 reasons why, and this series is beautiful and well-written, the cinematography, the directing, the editing, the music, the acting, everything was so good

dylan minnette who plays the protagonist is especially captivating in how he played clay - from smart sarcastic dialogue to the little details of his anxiety to the scenes where he breaks down, for a show with a huge cast and storyline he was great in becoming this show’s foundation

this series is just so fucking good

I could feel my gray wrappings being inexorably stripped away, and small bright streaks of pain shot through me like lightning bolts piercing clouds.

I had no wish to come back, no desire to feel again. I didn’t want to know love, only to have it ripped away once more.

But it was too late. I knew that, even as I fought to hold the gray shroud around me. Fighting only hastened its dissolution; it was like grasping shreds of cloud, that vanished in cold mist between my fingers. I could feel the light coming, blinding and searing.

Differences between the Anime and the Manga - Intro

I’m gonna be posting the differences between the anime and the manga for every episode. I’ll be doing each episode of s2 as it comes out, and in between each episodes, I’ll be doing s1.

Just like many others, I was hyped for season 2, so I decided to re-watch season 1 of the anime. It was only my 3rd time watching s1, and this time, I decided to re-read the manga as well along the way, just to see what kind of changes the anime team made.

I read the manga more than 10 times, and even though I knew that there were many changes in the anime, I was still surprised by how much.

First, I wanna say that I love the anime, I think the animation is amazing, the voice acting is perfect, and the music is beautiful. I liked watching every scene from the manga animated, and I liked watching fillers that we knew happened in the manga, but they weren’t shown (for example in ep26 that would be Mike slicing up the Titans, that was awesome).

So I’m hyped for season 2, and I can’t wait to watch all those amazing manga panels animated.

However, I don’t like when scenes from manga are deleted or changed, and I’m not interested to watch someone else’s head-cannons.

Title: just you and i
Pairing: Choi Seunghyun/Reader
Genre: Dad!AU
Summary: Seunghyun is beautifully surprised when he’s left alone with his son and he’s asked about art.

Seunghyun always saw the job of being a mother as the hardest task a woman could even fulfill –or a man, in certain cases- and he learnt said lesson with his mother. He remembers the moments he would look at other students in his class with his mom and dad, whilst he held his mother’s hand and she tried to give everyone a smile, because even when he made mistakes she saw the best in him. Seunghyun remembers when he smoked his first cigarette and how his mother cried hours to no end. He specially remembers seeing her there by his side when he wanted to reach a music career or when he acted in his first drama, everything was always something that he would thank her for endlessly but for the longest time, he thought that he was never going to find someone that would treat his future kids like his mother treated him, with both respect and love. It’s not that the man was picky with his partners, he had a fair exchange of girlfriends in the twenty-something years that he had when he met her, but he had never met someone like her, someone that couldn’t care less about what others thought of her and that protected her family like her life depended on it. Seunghyun could easily fall in love with her physical features, but her personality was what caught her.

Cherry blossoms, deep kisses, exchanged shouts and a few years later, the two remained together but with something different in their love lives. The two had gotten married around two years ago and Jiyong almost dropped everything to the floor when he heard that the uncatchable Seunghyun was getting married and he even helped him plan everything. His other bandmates were there as well, obviously. Whilst marriage life wasn’t the easiest, he enjoyed the feeling of the deep rain and how the sun would appear after every fight the two had and sooner than later, a decision was made and Seungkwan was brought to the world, which strangely enough…looked a lot like Seunghyun when he was a baby –or those were his mother’s words-, widened eyes, petite nose, puckered up lips and the most squishy cheeks that he had ever seen in his life and if he ever learnt something from taking care of his nephew was that pinching a baby’s fluffy cheeks and hearing their little giggles were better when they were your children, when you realized that you had all your hopes and dreams placed on them.

Scott Caan Rides The Hollywood Wave His Own Way


There are few actors left in the world today who you could rightly refer to as ‘legend’. James Caan is one of them. Rather than let the weight of that name drag him down Scott Caan reveals how he carved out his own piece of the entertainment world and beyond.


“I’m a high-school drop-out,” Scott Caan says, laughing all the way from Oahu, Hawaii. The 40-year-old actor and LA native is taking time out of shooting the hit CBS show, Hawaii Five-O.  Earlier in the day he visited the beach and squeezed in a session with his jujitsu instructor – as far a high school drop-outs go, he’s not doing too badly. He goes on, “I knew school wasn’t for me. Everybody in high school was thinking about what college they could go to or where to apply…and I was thinking about how not to go to the 11th grade.”


He is of course joking – in reality, Caan grew up in California as the son of the legendary actor James Caan and spent his childhood being immersed in the business of Hollywood. You might recognise him as the brash, blonde quiffed quick talker in Entourage, the crisp Turk Malloy in the Ocean’s 11 series or the slick detective Danny ‘Danno’ Williams in the long running hit Hawaii Five-O. It’s perhaps unsurprising then that he realised at an early age that academia wasn’t for him and there was an option to pursue his passion to be creative.


“My dad didn’t want me to get into the business,” laughs Caan. ”He knew it would be hard to do this job over and over again and it’s creatively hard to get excited about playing the same dude for seven years.  My dad is probably one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met.  When you’re young you don’t see your father as a legend, you just know that he’s an interesting, colourful, wild kinda cat and you think, ‘I want to be like that guy’. If you come from creative people it’s just in you.”


The creative impulse is something, it seems, that was in his blood from the very beginning. Caan has done almost everything – music, surfing, photography, acting, directing. As a teenager in the early 90s he co-founded the hip hop collective The Whooliganz with his long time producer friend, The Alchemist, after gorging on artists like Nas, A Tribe Called Quest and Eric B & Rakim.  At the time when B-Boy culture was making its way to LA from New York, Caan was beginning his love of counter-cultural art forms. “Hip hop was our punk,” he says. “It became the biggest culture in the world but at the time it was us being misfits. Graffiti, B-Boying, MCing and breakdancing was a way for us to be like, ‘we don’t wanna be on the football team, we don’t want to be on the baseball team, we wanna do this’.”


“At 15, I didn’t look up to the captain of the football team, I didn’t look up to the guys getting the best grades, I looked up to the guys in Venice [Beach], the guys smoking weed and surfing at the breakwater.”


Wanting to navigate his way through the world away from the preoccupations of the mainstream is a theme of Caan’s creative life away from acting. Now, the slick aesthetic of designer surf wear and slick surfers being captured on Instagram looks aspirational but, for Caan, it was the countercultural aspect of the culture that appealed to him as a teenager back in the 80s. “Surfing and skateboarding was our way of saying ‘fuck you’,” he says. “At 15, I didn’t look up to the captain of the football team, I didn’t look up to the guys getting the best grades, I looked up to the guys in Venice [Beach], the guys smoking weed and surfing at the breakwater.


“Now you have 13-year-old girls getting boards for their birthday. You go surfing and there’s guys pulling up with Range Rovers and long boards sticking out of their cars. All that stuff used to be underground and punk and now it’s mainstream. For us, it was our world, our version of being outcasts.”


He cites the infamous 2001 skating documentary Dogtown and Z -Boys as a good representation of what the culture felt like at the time – “skating is what we did when there were no waves” – and, for him, it was the freedom of being in open water that spoke to him. Today he still surfs as a way to force himself to reflect on ‘the moments.’ Its power might be why he now also works with A Walk On Water, a charitable organisation that seeks to use surfing as a tool to support children with special needs.

“I surf today because there’s something about being in the water – when you’re surfing a wave there’s really nothing to trip on. There’s really nothing else but the moment. It’s just something I don’t know how to explain.” For someone who lives in the highly structured world of Hollywood, the option to shrug off the tight structure of work life is understandable.

Women of Xal is a sophisticated visual novel that kept me hooked from the minute the music began at the start screen to the closing credits of the demo. The world that is created is so interesting and complex-but not so complex that even me of all people couldn’t understand it. I enjoyed each and every character, but particularly Velvet and mc. I want to romance Velvet so much… Anyway, each character is so interesting that i found myself wanting to know more about each one, what drives them and how they ended up at Xuna’s place. I want to see how my choices effect the trajectory of the game and what ending I will decide based on my choices. (If i can win the heart of Velvet i’ll be happy.) The music, the art, the voice acting-everything was extremely well done and beautiful. I will definitely play the full game if when the game reaches its goal on kickstarter. 

Please back Women of Xal on kickstarter! It’s amazing and deserves the world-

Jake Gyllenhaal Imagine

One fight after another. you just couldn’t do this anymore. You watched as Jake yelled at you, the previews position of anger you had changed. You felt yourself give up. The fighting had finally took it all out of you. This shouldn’t be this hard. This many fights shouldn’t happen. Looking at him you shaked your head and turned around

“Where are you going?” Jake yelled after me.

“I’m going out. I can’t do this anymore” as you walked out little sadness came to you but deep down you knew turning around and going back wasn’t an option. This fighting had to stop and you were going to be the one to stop it, that’s what your were going to do.

Right before the fighting started again you had a plan to go out with your friends, and even if you felt like shit, you were not going to cancel. So getting yourself together you went to see them and act as if everything is fine.

The loud music and any drink made you relax. You danced with your friends and took shot, trying your best to forget about the fight that might end the relationship you loved so much. Moving your hips to the beat of the music, you lost all reality around you. You were one with music. Then a pair of hand were placed on your moving hips, in the drunken state you thought it was Jake but right before you could get into it, you realized it wasn’t him. Panic hit, and jumping back you looked at the man standing in front of you. His eyes showed lust, lust that you didn’t want. All you wanted was to get away from him, but before getting away the stranger was lying across the room. You watches as he landed on the other side of the club, eyes wide watching the man on the floor you were pulled away from the dance floor. 

“Oh my god, Lucy..” before you could finish you realized it wasn’t her. Jake was the one pulling you. When the reality hit, you pulled your arm away from him and yelled

“What the hell Jake?” we had entered an empty room so your yelling was louder then expected.

“What the hell m? What the hell you? You are the one dancing with a random guy.” his eyes were burning with anger. Him seeing you with someone else by your side made him more angry then he as ever been.

“I didn’t know it was some random guy. And i didn’t do anything wrong. The question is why the hell are you here?” Jake looked even more angry then before.

“You left in the middle of our argument so i had to follow you” you rolled your eyes at him.

“Do you even realize how bad that sounds? You had no right to do that” you two were yelling at each other at the top of your lungs.

“I’m your fucking boyfriend so when you go out with some flaky friends i have to look after you. But then I find you dancing with some asshole” you looked into his eyes as deep as possible ad saw the real feelings he wasn’t saying. The evil side of you came out. You smirked at him and that surprised him. “What?” he said as you smiled.

“Whatever Jake. At least he had the guts to make a move show what he feels toward me” you didn’t mean what you said. You could have cared less about that guy but you wanted to teas Jake. You wanted to push his little buttons. Suddenly you were turned around and pushed on to the wall, you met with Jakes eyes that now were filled with the lust you thought he had lost.

“You want to know what I feel?” he asked an all  could do was nod. Then it happened. He kissed you strong but filled with lust and passion. His hands went all over your body, hiking the dress high letting him attach his hands to your ass. Jake pushed you even more against the wall, lifted you up. Wrapping legs around his waist you moaned into the kiss. Th two of you were making out like two teenagers. Soon the kissing was stopped by a knocking on the door that you were pushed against. You looked at each other breathing heavy.

“I love you” Jake said letting you down, giving you one last long kiss before going home and finishing what you started. 

The Scorch Trials Appreciation

I know a lot of people dislike the movie strictly because of how far off it drifts from the book and from the same perspective I guess I could understand that. But I was never mad about it, just because it was so well done.

My favorite scene in that movie has to be the Crank Party scene. It just stuck out and was perfectly executed. From the music to the acting to the directing and camera work. Everything was right where it was supposed to be. The writing especially, thanks to Dashner for the books and T.S. Nowlin for the script, but truly. That scene was so-I’m not sure how to put it-electric? Something about it was so captivating and I think that was the point. I was brilliantly done. I found myself looking for the music they used the night the movie released after I watched it.

So even though the Scorch Trials was my favorite book of the series at the time and while I probably was a little upset with the changes, I was so astounded by the movie I just couldn’t stay that way for very long.
