Hello friends and followers! This blog is about three and a half years old which is wild (I’ve been on tumblr a bit longer but I made this one in October of 2013). It’s been a wild three and a half years, but it’s time for it to come to an end. Recently, tumblr has bored me, and just made me annoyed and unhappy. It doesn’t satisfy me the way it used to, and the way other social media now does.
I also threw myself into the Cats fandom here, but for very personal reasons, I’m needing to distance myself from Cats drastically right now. To the lovely, amazing friends I’ve made from this hell site, old and new– thank you for everything!!
The blog isn’t going anywhere. But I’m not going to log into it with any frequency anymore. I won’t answer messages or check my dash. At times I may check up on certain blogs but I won’t be interacting with posts.
THAT BEING SAID, I’m not just disappearing!!! You can find me in the following places:
Twitter:skimblcshanks***this is my main one right now. let me know if we were tumblr mutuals and I’ll be sure to follow you back!***
Discord: You know who you are– I have the servers muted but you can always PM me!!!
RP blog: @mvcrofts ***IF YOU NEED TO CONTACT ME ON TUMBLR, this is where I’ll be, both on desktop and mobile. Please don’t flood me with messages unrelated to RP here, because it’s a high-traffic blog, but it will work for contact! I’d prefer other social media, however.
CLOSE FRIENDS/MUTUALS ONLY– FACEBOOK AND PHONE # If you’d like to add me on FB or get my phone # (only if we’ve talked more than like… twice?), you can contact me at any of the above social media platforms to ask! I will not be on this blog effective immediately so contacting me here is useless.
I’m going to have this post queued for a few times a day for a while. Thank you all for being there and for understanding. Goodnight!
halloween 2013 was such a wild time for one direction fans like harry styles was running around in spandex pretending to be miley cyrus with his middle aged bodyguard as robin thicke while niall horan was running around in a sleeveless leather vest as a member of kiss carrying two beers in his hand at one time

Tristan “Mack” Wilds had one of my favorite albums of 2013 with his debut LP, New York: A Love Story. Despite his youthfulness (he is only 26), the Grammy-nominated album was steeped in vintage 90s’ hip hop soul in a similar fashion to songs from Mary J Blige’s My Life era and Faith Evans’ early Bad Boy years. Although he returned to his original hustle of acting (he starred in Adele’s “Hello” video, and was a lead on VH1’s movie The Breaks), he also plans to drop his sophomore effort on Epic Records later this year.
That album has been set off by its first single, “Love In The 90z.” An extension of the sound of New York, Mack has unveiled the visual treatment for the song. Inspired by the early directing days of Spike Lee, the video was actually shot in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, and plays on Spike’s 1989 opus Do The Right Thing. With bamboo earrings, boom-bap stylings and an appearance from Saturday Night Sexy alum Crystal Rodriguez, viewers can take a trip back in time below.
Throwback K-pop Thursday: Eight Times SHINee Made You Feel Things
Last week, SM Entertainment’s strongest (and when I mean strongest, I mean the group that’s definitely last the longest in terms of original member lineup) just celebrated their eighth year anniversary. As official SHINee trash, I feel more than obligated to fan over this amazing achievement on the part of both SHINee and the SHINee World (which is a darn great place to be ya’ll).
For this week’s Throwback K-pop Thursday, I will be listing down my eight favorite SHINee moments. From their awkward, flower boy phase to their more put together mastery of their contemporary style, this will definitely be both a fun and feels-worthy article.
