my two insignificant cents about the whole ‘don’t ride on bts’ success!!!!’ issue that has been going on since the AMAs:
so let’s break it down a bit. basically, we have two opinions: 1. bts are breaking the barriers of kpop and western platforms, what’s wrong with other groups gaining some popularity if it brings more recognition to kpop as a whole? 2. bts got where they wanted to get with their own effort and ARMY’s help. it’s wrong that you take their moment to shine to promote your favs.
i think there’s a fine line between 1 and 2 and a lot of people are getting the two mixed up. recently i saw a tweet that went along the lines of “hey, bts are a good group!” and with a reply that said “hey, you should check out black pink too!” and then all the fans hated on the reply. personally, i think that liking a kpop band because of their popularity and having people recommend other bands isn’t wrong. i mean, isn’t it great that bts are being representatives of a whole genre and getting the non-kpop media more interested in the genre as a whole? kings! asian kings!!!
i guess the issue is when antis (although i find ‘antis’ harsh, i’ll stick to ‘antis’ bc non-fans could just mean… they’re not a fan. not necessarily that they dislike bts) say that bts are out to seek western validation, and then turn around and promote their faves under the tweet. the problem with that is that a lot of ARMYs, internationally, have helped in doing a lot. calling in radio stations, sending in tweets, setting up events on social media… basically being a super duper huge PR team - except they worked for free and yet they worked for hours. it just bothers most ARMYs that the effort we put in for bts to be successful is discredited by discrediting bts, and then successful results of those efforts are used to promote your favs.
there isn’t really a conclusion to this. perhaps that, sharing information about a genre isn’t bad, and i think most fans would wholeheartedly encourage that. on the flip side, i also think that credit needs to be given where credit is deserved and just…. yeah. ik a lot of y’all hate ARMY and hate bts just bc,,, just bc we’re your competitors or something (which is another thing i don’t understand. kpop is One Genre,,, everything would be fantastic if we could just. get. along. but anyways, that’s a rant for another day). but anyhow, i think if you’re a second generation kpop stan you would kinda understand the sentiment being discredited in kpop and having people ride off the kpop wave or whatever. either way, try to relate. i guess it’s something like cultural relativism, but like.. within the k-pop fandom. ok, i’m just rambling now and i’ll stop.
so yeah, i just wanted to get my thoughts out in a structured manner. tweeting this would be a long thread even with 280 characters, so i decided to put it on tumblr instead. plus, i can actually edit typos.
and the standard disclaimer: i encourage opposing thoughts and views and enjoy discussions and learning about other perspectives! what i will downright ignore/delete or just be passive-aggressive towards will be: hate, sending me asks without trying to understand what i’m saying, and just wanting to vent angrily instead of having a wholesome discussion.
A few notes. Things I’ve been obsessed with were usually the sky
and the architecture. As you may have noticed, the sky was given a lot
of attention in my works and continues to play more of a foreground role
than a background. It’s been only recently that I started writing down
the sky colours combinations that I liked, - when it goes from purple
zenith to yellow at the horizon, or dark blue and lime green, or grey
with hints of pink - . Lately I also have given a lot of thought into
how little nighttime architectural portraiture is pursued due to obvious
technical limitations. I’d like to explore it one day. For now, I began
to play with the impossible between the dusk/night/dawn skies and
daytime architecture. It may seem strange to see something that has
indirect, inverted and improbable light. However, I was told that
photography was nothing but “painting with light” and I’d never call
myself a photographer, but I do like exploring the light in any shape
and form and I shall continue. Light keeps us alive.
Hi my name is Bl0ndebillie Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way and I have long platnum blond hair (that’s how I got my name). Im not related to billy jo Armstrong but I wish i was becuz he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m actually biphobic but I claim not to be all the time. I have pale white skin. I’m also a troll, and I go to a magic website called Tumblr where I harass minors constantly (I’m 19). I’m a punk (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black. I love Hot Topic and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a black corset with matching lace around it and a black leather miniskirt, pink fishnets and black combat boots. I was wearing black lipstick, white foundation, black eyeliner and red eye shadow. I was logging on tumblr there was tons of drama going on which I was very happy about. A lot of Green Day fans stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.
I use the eyeliner on my resources page a lot… other than that my blush gives a sort of pink hue around the eyes, so that’s probably it. I don’t use eyeshadows enough to put them on my resource page. If you’re asking about one in particular feel free to send a wcif! ^-^
hey. hey you know that twilight magic pink starry sea thingy you and te5seract did? we need some more of that. pink and purple just like that. lots more. it's a perfect aesthetic we need some more. please have a wonderful day
Hey hey! Yes I know that thing, it’s very pretty isn’t it? Have you seen part one and part two? I have some more photos from that area, maybe I’ll have him edit them again. I love the pink and purple combo too if you couldn’t tell from my page ;) I’m very happy that you like it though, I’m surprised both sets are doing as well as they are! Thank you for the kind message! 💖💖💖
new game: disassociate on the bus home and end up in some suburb you don’t know and then walk for an hour trying to find anything recognisable. the only rule is you can’t check your phone (because you’re out of data). works best while listening to pink floyd.
