Each time my ipod shuffles & ‘Spring Day’ comes on, it triggers a wave of emotions, good or bad, depending on my mood.
I was doing fine with the last episode of BV2, even when the members read their letters to each other. But the moment ‘Spring Day’ came on as the bgm to VMIN’s interview on their thoughts from V’s letter, it was the ultimate tearjerker.
Taehyung may seem really bright & cheerful on stage, but on broadcasts, ceremonies, etc, he doesn’t really seem to talk or show his expressions that much. On the contrary, IMO, he seems like a pretty sentimental, reserved and private person. The way he talks so softly and gently, ahh…
It takes reaaallyyy alot for a reserved person to warm up and open up to someone. Once they find that someone, they will give their all in that relationship/friendship.
You know you’ve found a keeper of a friend when he/she goes through your ups & downs WITH you.
And we all know how difficult & awkward it is to thank someone so close to us. Friends, family, etc. Sometimes, we even take them for granted for always being there…
We may get angry & upset with them at times, but at the end of the day, they are the ones who are most ready to forgive us when we’ve done something wrong, and the ones who will stick by us and never judge, accepting & loving us for who we are.
MY VMIN FEELS. Everyone needs a friendship like theirs!
On this day in music history: August 15, 1981 - “Endless Love” by Diana Ross & Lionel Richie hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 9 weeks, also topping the R&B singles chart for 7 weeks on August 22, 1981, and the Adult Contemporary chart for 3 weeks on September 5, 1981. Written by Lionel Richie, it is the theme for the Brooke Shields film of the same name. The duet comes about when Richie is asked by director Franco Zeffirelli and producer Jon Peters to write an instrumental theme for their film. The two change their minds and request that the song have lyrics and make it a duet with a female artist. Motown executive Suzanne DePasse suggests Diana Ross, though at the time has just recently left Motown for RCA Records. Hearing Lionel’s song, Diana agrees to sing the duet. Both singers have to adjust their busy schedules in order to record together. Ross is in the middle of a concert engagement in Lake Tahoe at the time, and Richie is also busy recording “In The Pocket”, his final album with the Commodores. The two arrange to record their vocals at a small recording studio in Reno, NV, only fifty miles away from the casino where Ross is performing. The two begin recording their vocals at 3:30 in morning and within an hour and a half complete their work on the track. Though the film itself is not well received, the title song is an immediate smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #54 on July 11, 1981, it leaps to the top of the chart five weeks later. “Endless Love” receives an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song, with Diana Ross and Lionel Richie performing the song on the live Oscar telecast in 1982. The song becomes a major hit once again when it is covered by Luther Vandross and Mariah Carey in 1994 (#2 Pop, #7 R&B).“Endless Love” is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
I am surprised and very happy to hear Marc Guggenheim’s comments about Merlyn’s future in the Arrowverse, because in a very decisive phone conversation we had with Wendy Mericle, I was led to believe that there were no plans to bring Merlyn back. If they have changed their mind, awesome! I have LOVED playing Malcom Merlyn and was SO disappointed to be told the news of his death and to no longer be part of a fantastic team and show. If they want me back, they just have to ask! The ball is back in their court. Write Merlyn an amazing storyline and I will be there.
Here’s how badly the Disney parks have over-used the word “magic:” Universal made a Harry Potter version of Fantasmic, but the best name they could come up with was “Nighttime Lights.” That’s some scorched earth, right there!
Honestly, Universal, was the name “Projection Mapped Cameos on a Building That Looks Like a Castle” already taken?
