theme 42

anonymous asked:

I do have photoshop, but I'm confused about gradients and stuff- like how to color the picture itself? What gradients would you suggest- or would you make your own? (sorry if this is jumbling together doll!)

Ok I can do a quick tutorial!! (this would be easier if your original picture has a clean background!)

for example if I’m going to use this picture as my sidebar:

First of all, add a “Black & White” adjust layer on it.

Second, add a “Level” adjust layer to enlarge the contrast. Try to make the background as white as you can.

if it’s not white enough, use “Brush tool” or “Dodge tool” to make it lighter

Your photo should look like this in the end:

Now, add a “Color Fill” adjust layer above your photo, with the color you’re going to use for your sidebar picture. And change the color mode of the layer into “Multiply”. This is what it should look like:

Now upload this picture to your sidebar. You can check the code of the color you choose here. And copy this code.

And then paste this code in “Header Links” (remember to add a # before the code)

and then it is done!!

Musical motifs in Pokémon Sun/Moon

Sun/Moon have a very well thought-out soundtrack with lots of recurring leitmotifs, so I thought it would be fun to write about it! In this post I’m going to point out some musical connections you might not have thought about. I’m not going to write about every single recurring motif in the game, just the ones that I think are interesting and/or non-obvious. Still, if you find something that I missed, please let me know!

Oh, and I’ll refer you to YouTube videos of the songs so you can listen for yourself. I won’t embed them, since that would take up tons of space, but there’ll be links. Now let’s get started!

The Kahunas and the Tapu

Let’s first talk about some motifs that seems to be strongly associated with the Island Challenge and Alolan culture.

To begin with, there’s a recurring phrase associated with the Kahunas and the Tapu that appears all over the soundtrack. Let’s say we call it the “Kahuna leitmotif”, for lack of a better name. You can hear it prominently in the Kahuna battle theme at 0:03 and at 0:17. It’s also the melody of the (out-of-battle) Kahuna theme (kicks in at 0:05), so it seems pretty firmly connected to the Kahunas. At the same time, it also appears in the Ruins theme (try listening at 0:16), as well as the actual Tapu battle theme (try 0:38), so it’s definitely associated with the Tapu too! Since the Kahunas are pretty much appointed by the Tapu to be their human representatives, it makes a lot of sense that they have a shared leitmotif.

Secondly, there’s a short phrase that appears in the Tapu songs but not the Kahuna songs; let’s call it the “Tapu leitmotif”. You can hear it right at the start of the Ruins theme, and in the Tapu battle theme at the beginning and at 0:33. Unlike the above Kahuna leitmotif, this one is exclusively associated with the Tapu, and only seems to play when you’re actually in their presence.

Finally, the main melody of the Kahuna Battle theme is of course that of the Trial theme, thus musically connecting the Kahunas to the Trials and the Trial Captains. Makes sense, since battling a Kahuna is in itself a Grand Trial. It also happens to be the catchiest, snazziest song of this generation, so it makes for a great battle theme, hehehe!

Team Skull and the Aether Foundation

Team Skull’s leitmotif is pretty easy to pick out, it’s right there at the start of the Team Skull theme. It’s also in their battle theme, and in Plumeria’s battle theme, and… well, you get the picture. The melody of Guzma’s theme is actually also the same leitmotif, but with a different rhythm, so it sounds quite different. Still, listen closely and you’ll hear it’s the same ten notes in the same order, hehe!

The Aether Foundation also has an easily recognizable motif that appears in most of their tracks, perhaps most notably the Aether House music at 0:14 and the (more sinister) Aether Foundation battle theme at 0:16. But you knew that already!

What’s really interesting, though, is that you can find a trace of the Aether Foundation leitmotif in Guzma’s battle theme, starting at 0:42. It’s heavily distorted, but I would argue it’s there! Nice bit of musical foreshadowing, perhaps?

The Ultra Beasts

The Ultra Beast battle theme is pretty cool, but did you know the same melody plays in Ultra Space, slowed down? Most people don’t pick up on this since the Ultra Space music only plays for a very short segment of the game, but it’s a cute detail, hehe.


This one’s not too easy to catch either. Try listening to the Solgaleo/Lunala battle theme at 0:26, where the melody comes in. Now compare it to the Altar of the Sunne/Moone music at 0:08. Again, even though it’s slowed down, you can tell it’s the same tune! Cool!

Regular Alola Battles

The Wild Pokémon Battle and Trainer Battle themes don’t really contain any overt references to other songs. (I guess it’s fitting that “regular” battle themes should have their own independent identities, since they help establish their generation’s unique atmosphere.) However, both of these battle themes make use of a descending blind octave passage - I’d say that’s a big part of what gives these Alola tracks their distinctive sound! So I thought I’d point it out anyway, hehe.

Check out the Wild Pokémon battle theme at 0:16 and the Trainer battle theme at 0:37, and I bet you’ll hear it too!

Gladion and Voltorb Flip

Okay, listen to the beginning of Gladion’s battle theme and tell me he’s not connected to the Goldenrod Game Corner in some way. I’m sure we can find an in-universe justification for this somewhere…

… r-right?

You stare off into space while sitting on your couch as your half-eaten toast slowly begins to slip off the plate you had in your lap. To say you were in a daze would be an understatement.

The events from yesterday afternoon replayed in your mind over and over again. How you were out on the balcony, minding your own business in trying to find your pink bandeau, that blasted bandeau… How you watched it twirl from his finger, the bright pink color mocking you with every spin. And how G-Dragon from BIGBANG just nonchalantly decided that would be the opportune time to introduce himself… and even called you neighbor.

The full Battleborn OST, as ripped from the game. Unsure when most of the pieces play during the story mode, but here’s a helpful timestamp for the separate factions’ themes pointed out by YouTube user ArtWaltz:

Voting Is Over, and The People Have Spoken!

We sent out the call, and you guys answered enthusiastically~ One (frankly gripping) poll, and 279 votes later, and we’re stoked to announce that we have a prom theme! 

With 42 out of 279 total votes, your 2014 Homestuck Prom theme is Quadrants! YEAH!!!!!!!! ::::D

Q: So what does that even mean for me?

A: It can mean as much or as little as you want it to~

You could make quadrant-themed decorations, or snacks for the night, incorporate it into your outfit, invite someone to prom by leaving a diamond/heart/spade in their inbox…pretty much whatever you can think of! Or if you’re not feeling the whole Quadrant thing at all, don’t. 

It’s totally up to you what you wanna’ do with it on your end. Go nuts~

Here on the blog, we’ll be up to all kinds of Quadrant-flavoured shenanigans that we’ve yet to dream up. Also, this year, for the first time ever, we’ll be having a running poll on prom night for “Cutest Quadrants”! 

As usual, apologies to those who wanted themes that didn’t make it (RIP Cagestuck Prom 2k14, you will never be forgotten) but hey, don’t let that stop you from having a blast~

So there you have it. Good luck kids~

Happy Promming!
