they are about to come on stage

alienbot97mach2  asked:

What inspired you to come up with the Cowardice AU for Villainous (along with the Parasite AU if your alright with that)?

when i made cowardice au, it was at the early stages where there were barely any aus, probably just heroic au, and when i made it i actually didn’t know about heroic au!
I just wanted to see black hat as something opposite; afraid, unsure, and friendly yet still a powerful eldritch being. i liked the stark contrast of a horrific being of a monster, but at the same time basically afraid of who he is.

parasite au was inspired by me wanting to draw an eye on the hat XD then I was also inspired by my own oc skrib the witch who has a controlling hat. basically mixed those two together and bam! parasite au!

So…ummm…listening to the initial stages of I Did Something Bad…👀

I think it really reinforces for me that these early songs came from a pretty angry and hurt mindset…not the cocky and arrogant place I’ve seen some assert. For me this wasn’t her being satirical…this was coming from a far more real place. She was lashing out at the crap being said about her…

My uncle once won first place in a lying contest, and I feel like this is a rare true story that needs to be told. So here it is.

My family, for as long as I can remember, has had these “adopted uncles” who are my mom and dad’s friends from college/highschool. There’s like five of them, and none of them are related to us. They are awesome, fun guys, and I’m best friends with their daughters (of the ones that have kids). I love hanging out with them, and when I do, I hear lots of hilarious stories that they and my Dad love to recollect whenever they’re together.

My uncles are interesting guys, and there are a lot of interesting stories. One of them is part of a well known band, one of them hung out with Taylor Swift on several occasions, and one worked on the Power Rangers. It’s all very interesting. But I think one of the funniest stories they’ve told me, far from meeting celebrities, or getting lost in the woods, or luring bears into their campsite (yep, they did that) is how one of them (let’s call him S) won a lying contest. This is how it went:

S and my dad, and some of his friends decided to go up into the mountains for a day. They drove up the winding roads, pine trees flashing past their windows, singing to Tom Petty the whole way. My dad and S have a great sense of humor, and I’m sure they were both in a laughable mood.

When they got to their destination, they saw a large banner over the road that read “Annual Lying Contest.” I kid you not. This little town in the piney mountains was so devoid of excitement that they legiterally hosted a Lying Contest every year.

My dad and S thought this was the FUNNIEST thing they had ever seen. They HAD to go watch the contest take place. They pulled into the parking lot, found their way to the stage, and asked someone about what was happening.

Apparently, the lying contest is an annual contest put on by the city, to see who had the most believable lie. Contestants would spend months coming up with elaborate lies, that were sure to convince people in the crowd. At the end, the judges would rank the lies on most convincing to least convincing. The winner of the contest recieved a home baked pie, and some other prize. Some of these lies could take fifteen minutes or more (remember this).

So anyways, S and my dad found a seat, and were ready to hear some lies. Later, my dad told me that it was hilarious to watch. There were lies about Bigfoot sightings, about bear wrestlings, army experiences, ghost hauntings, and more. My dad and S were cracking up the whole time, while marveling at how unique the demographic of the town was to enjoy something like this.

Finally, the last contestant stepped down from the stage after a 20 minute elaborate lie about an alien abduction. The judges took a sweeping look over the crowd, and spoke loudly into the microphone; “are there any other contestants?”

Before my dad could stop him, S stood up and raised his hand.

“Well, come up sir!” 

S climbed the steps to the stage. He looked over the crowd seriously, and desperately tried to come up with a lie in time. His mind was blank. Empty. But S had no shame, and I’ve known him long enough to know this was 100% something he would do. The man throws himself into every awkward situation ever.

He took a step towards the microphone. His hands were clasped in front of him. He looked around at the people watching, the trees surrounding them, and said in his most serious voice into the mic;

“I was born a fish.”

That was it. The audience lost it. There was no build up, no elaborate detail, no story behind the lie. Just 1 ½ seconds, and he had told his entire lie. It was hilariously short, and there was no plot holes, or inconsistencies. Just purely, seriously, “I was born a fish.”

S left the stage in the midst of roaring laughter, as the audience, judges, and my dad tried to contain themselves. It was one of his proudest moments, that one second lie.

And guess what? He won first place.

First. Place.

A true inspiration, imo.

BTS Spill Details on Their Upcoming World Tour – Plus, Will They Ever Record Music in English?

BTS has definitely gone global.

The Korean boy band was greeted by hundreds of fans at LAX airport on Tuesday as they landed in the U.S. ahead of their performance at Sunday's2017 American Music Awards – and has plans to take their show on the road to meet even more of America’s ARMY.

“Our fans, ARMY, I love you,” J-Hope told ET’s Denny Directo during an interview at their AMAs rehearsal on Wednesday, as the band opened up about their upcoming 2018 world tour.

“We will visit more cities, and I think we will definitely be like, adding more stages. I don’t know the particular time of when we will be coming back [to the U.S.], but it will definitely be doper and bigger,” RM revealed. “It’s gonna really happen.”

“Yeah, of course,” J-Hope added of whether he, RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, V and Suga plan to perform tour dates in Europe and Brazil as well.

“We just finished this tour named Wings, and I think it is going to be like, a new series for the tour, so of course including United States, it’ll happen, I think. I hope it will happen everywhere, every continent,” RM shared. “We want it too.”

Recording music in English might be less of a priority for the group, through they’re definitely breaking into the U.S. market.

“We’re releasing our new song, ‘MIC Drop’ remix with Steve Aoki and Desiigner next week. It’s going to be like, an English version of something, so I think we will try some versions like that later,” RM explained, as the band dished on who they hope to collaborate next.

J-Hope and the guys pressured Jungkook to reveal his love for Justin Bieber, which he confirmed. “Yeah.”

V, meanwhile, revealed his desire to work with Daniel Caesar. “I love him,” he raved.

As for RM’s wishlist? That would be “Sabrina Claudio, Drake and, of course, Migos.”

For now, however, the group is focused on their upcoming AMAs performance – which RM teased they couldn’t be more “ready” for.

“We’re going to do it like we always have been,” he declared.

— favourite One and Only lyrics (ft. Sehun)

i just saw a picture of the blm flag on the stage and read this person’s account of what happened when they threw the flag on stage and i’m…. not gonna lie i’m disheartened

somewhere, in a better gotham, the joker was born a woman, with eyes like candy apples, smooth skin. babysoft. 

in the gotham we know, the joker fell into a pit of toxic waste and turned green with envy. in this gotham, the better one, the joker is a tall, thin lady walking down the street. “smile, pretty” follows in her footsteps. when she stands at open mic laughter nights, she’s heckled from the crowd. they won’t smile for her but they resent her frown. 

her mother says that her best feature is her body. the joker spends hours staring in mirrors. picturing a trophy-wife kind of life. smile, pretty. smile pretty. smile. pretty. she’s sixteen the first time she tapes her lips up, just to see if she can teach her skin to learn the shape better. your teeth are your best feature. in the wild, smiling is a sign of fear.

she’s twenty and lives alone with her dog and tries to be okay with that. another night where she’s losing money on transportation, but she goes to the open mic anyway. the guy before her talks about airline food. she gets on the stage and immediately booed. and it’s years like this, in a pattern, in the weave of her passion, so that every night is thrown beer bottles and shouting and comments that make her sick to her stomach and being told she’s nothing special and being told women aren’t funny and being told her voice is shrill and ugly and being told when she’s too animated that she’s crazy and being told when she’s too stiff that she’s boring and being asked out by every single sleeze in the zip code and being shouted at when she says no and the neverending tumble of it because maybe tomorrow will be better, maybe tomorrow will be better, maybe tomorrow

he comes up on stage with her and soaks her shirt in beer. now that’s a show! the man calls. he gets cheers. she doesn’t cry, just walks out the back door before doing something stupid. the manager pats her on the head while she leaves. it’s okay, darling. he looks her over. i don’t get it. a body like yours? you should be an exotic dancer. comedy isn’t for everybody. you’re not funny, sweetie.

she’s not funny. not funny. not funny. the words turn alarm bells. the one thing she’s supposed to be talented at. the one thing she loves is just to make people laugh. and she’s not even funny.

hey you know what’s kind of funny? the way it feels at the bottom. how flat everything turns. how unreal. she skims like a rock. your body is your best feature. she tries again on monday. “you know what’s funny? i thought about murder the other day”. don’t we all, sweetie. on the bus, come home with me. on the street, why aren’t you smiling.

maybe some people are born close to the camel’s back, maybe some people have just always been looking for the straw. it’s too much in either direction. she goes home and smears makeup on her skin. tears her hair off. dyes it green, a shock, to match her eyes and spite and envy at men who can tell the same jokes and get laughter for it where she gets nothing and nothing and nothing, where she is pushed off of stages, where she is mocked.

well, isn’t it her turn to do the mocking.

in this story, in this better gotham where vigilante is sometimes good, sometimes a few letters from villain: who will stop her? in this life, when harley walks in, the two are different, best friends, sugar-on-pie because isn’t it true the world has it out for women. in this life, when harley shows up with hyenas, the joker thinks about the wild and the laws of it and says, “oh, of course, let them in”. in this life the violence has a name. 

and nobody says it without laughing.

anonymous asked:

do you have an idea of a checklist for learning how to create digital art? like i know practice is essential, but i don't really know where to start or where to go from there. thanks so much xox

I think I can toss some stuff out here that might be of use.  Assuming an artist learning digital art starts from the beginning–owning a tablet & drawing program but not knowing how to use them–here’s an inconveniently long list of stuff that could help them.

TL;DR: 1, mess around till you’re used to drawing digitally. 2, study and create ad infinitum. 3, a bunch of tips that are pretty hard to TLDR so you should probably just go over em.  Step 2 is basically what you asked me NOT to tell you (“practice”!), but unfortunately it’s all I know how to do :,(

1) If you own a tablet that you plug into your computer (i.e., you don’t draw directly on the screen), feel free to spend a few weeks or even a month+ just getting used to it.  When you first start out, it’s really freaky drawing in one place and seeing things appear somewhere else, but trust me in that you won’t even notice the disconnect after a few months of consistent digital drawing.  I’ve been painting digitally for about 2 years now, and it’s actually slightly easier for me to draw digitally than traditionally.  [If you have a cintiq, or you use an iPad with Procreate, or something similar, then you probably don’t have to spend as much time in step 1.]

Keep in mind that it doesn’t matter how good you were with traditional drawing when you start digital; the mental disconnect you have will make it very difficult to think about proportions, values, edges, colors, etc.  You’ll probably notice yourself making mistakes that you wouldn’t normally make on paper.  Don’t worry about them, just keep drawing as you usually would.  Digital you will catch up to traditional you in time.  

For now, get used to blending colors, drawing somewhat steady lines that go in the correct direction, and fooling around with brushes and brush settings.  If you come across a brush that you like (easy to work with + pleasing results), it may help to stick with it as you continue to learn.  Digital doodles and sketches are good for this stage; though try to keep doing traditional work so your base art skills don’t atrophy.  

If you’re just starting out with Photoshop or Sai or Krita or whatever software you’re using, you’re gonna be intimidated by all the funky buttons and settings that you first see.  If it makes you feel any better, I use maybe 0.1% of the tools that Photoshop offers me.  When you start, all you need to worry about is the brush tool and control-z, maybe the eraser too.

2) Do studies as well as pieces from imagination.  You can move into step 2 as early as you please; you don’t have to wait until you think you’ve become “skillful” at digital drawing (in fact, this step is what will probably help you become the most comfortable with digital).  It’s alright if your colors are icky looking and your values are off (tip, occasionally turn the saturation of your drawing to 0 to check the values), because as long as you keep studying reality and appealing art & continually learn from your mistakes, you’ll get better. 

Always remember to study or at least appreciate the qualities of art you enjoy.  It’s the same thing that people always tell writers–you have to read a lot to write well.  You probably shouldn’t shield yourself from the influence of other artists; while you may think that this action would help you develop artistically in the manner most true to yourself, in reality the vast majority of the process of learning art will be honing in on what you find visually pleasant so that you may, in turn, express your artistic taste in your work.  If you look at other people’s art, you can pick out tiny aspects of it that you like and incorporate that into your style.  It’s a bit trickier to build a style without the “help” of other artists, though you can always turn to nature for help. On that note, I also recommend referencing nature as much as you can, because we as human beings are sort of wired to find natural designs, colors, and structures beautiful.  Look at nature for the universally beautiful, and look at art for the subjectively beautiful (i.e., enjoyed uniquely by you).

If you find yourself getting burnt out pretty quickly, then just paint/draw simple and small things for period of half an hour to 1 ½ hours a day (and switch back to traditional).  You can spend this time mapping out proportions, creating thumbnails of values/colors, drawing linework, or whatever.  Add complexity to your pieces as the months go by, and if you already have a decent foundation in drawing aim to create somewhat finished pieces after maybe four months to a year.  Please note that the second part of that sentence was something I completely made up out of my head, because I’m trying to quantify pretty unquantifiable concepts such as a “decent foundation in drawing” and a “somewhat finished” piece of art.  If you find it unrealistic, or just too easy of a goal, disregard it entirely.  It can take you half a decade to learn to make finished digital art, or you can get it down in a couple months.

3) Fun fact, there’s not really a step 3 as you stay in 2 forever, always studying and creating.  But there’s a few other things about digital art that you ought to know, so here they are:

• If your computer doesn’t make a fuss about it, I’d recommend working on a decently large canvas (at least 3000 by 3000; I personally prefer 6000 by 6000). You’ll get less defined edges and colors if you go below 1000 by 1000, from my experience.

• If you have a tablet with pressure sensitivity (you probably should otherwise digital painting is kinda hellish), go to your brush settings and set ‘transfer’ to ‘pen pressure.’  This is what makes it possible to blend.  

• If you’re having trouble matching colors while studying, you can always color pick the ref (in photoshop: bring the pic into PS and use the eye dropper tool) and compare its colors to your colors.  Some people add too much red to their skin tones, some people draw their highlights with overly desaturated colors, some people make trees and grass in their landscapes too green; whatever the case, take note of and correct errors that you consistently make.  

• Get used to using the transform/warp/liquify tools (liquify is technically a filter but you get what I mean).  They’re lifesavers for fixing proportion mistakes that you’ve only noticed 8 hours into a piece. 

• Give layers a shot.  I only work on one layer, but I’ve heard from people who divide their piece up into multiple layers that they’re damn useful (until you draw on the wrong one). 

• Flip your canvas horizontally every once in a while to make sure stuff hasn’t gone awry. 

• Screw around with color modes; they can do some really fancy things that are difficult to duplicate with normal digital painting, let alone traditional.  On the topic of colors, don’t be afraid to use somewhat desaturated colors (near the center of the color picker square in PS). There are some very aesthetically pleasing color combinations that you can make out of somewhat dulled colors.

• If you’re using PS, bind ‘step backward’ to control Z, not ‘undo.’  This is under keyboard shortcuts.  Set up a bunch of shortcuts that are the most convenient for you–personally, I only keep my left hand near the lower left region of my keyboard (my right hand is away from the keyboard and off to the right, drawing on the tablet), so I have all of my necessary shortcuts in that area.

This was a bit longer than I expected, but I figure that someone out there can get something out of it.  Cheers to you, if you do.

Easily one of the most interesting Faustus interps I’ve seen recently was a local college production where the demons DIDNT just immediately, violently drag Faust to hell in the last scene.

Instead, as the clock was approaching midnight, soft music started playing ((Non Je Ne Regrette Rein by Edith Piaf)), and a spotlight fell on Mephistopheles, who had been standing downstage for most of the scene, hidden in darkness.

He walked across the stage, where the actor playing Faust was. He was kneeling, face in hands, openly weeping, and Mephistopheles helped him to his feet. And then they started to slow dance.

Mephistopheles was clearly leading, and Faust was just kinda slumped over on him, with his face buried in his neck, not really moving as much. And it’s all like, really genuinely tender? You get the impression that Mephistopheles is trying to make Faust’s last moments at least somewhat peaceful.

And then, as the song is getting to the last part, you see this circular red outline appear under them. It starts out really dim, but as the song draws to a close, it gets brighter and brighter. And then, during the last lines of the song, Mephistopheles let’s go of Faustus and steps out of the circle. And THAT is when Faust gets dragged to hell. The red circle starts to lower down into the stage, and you see all these hands begin to reach up and grab at Faust and at the edges of the circle. And Mephistopheles just watches. Calmly.

The stage closed back up. Faust is gone. Mephistopheles just kinda saunters over to Fausts bed and sits down on it. Then after a few seconds, the scholars come in and give their whole shpeal. However, when they go to leave, Mephistopheles gets up and follows them. Just as the Second Scholar is about to exit, Mephistopheles whispers something seductively in his ear. The scholar pauses for a moment, shakes his head, and leaves.

Chorus. End. That’s it.

The entire thing was an odd mix of tender and spooky, and it’s almost hard to get a read on what the director was going for. But I still thought it was incredibly cool.

Why the Jungkook GCF Tokyo video is important !

🔹 The fact that Junkook used this Troye Sivan song. It’s no secret Kook loves Troye, but he loves this song SO MUCH that he used it despite copyright claims. He could have chosen any song, any of their own songs for no copyright, but he chose this song and as a result, the video is not monetized. Meaning they’re not making money from it. Jungkook uploaded the vid solely because HE wanted to, not to get money at all

🔹 He filmed, directed, and edited this amazing video because he just loves Jimin so much. He spent all that time for Jimin alone when he didn’t even give the other members birthday presents. He treats JM differently, he clearly cares a lot for JM whether as just friends or lovers.

🔹 The video is all Jimin from Jungkooks perspective. Every scene had something to do with Jimin, he barely even showed himself. It was the literal definition of “he thought the view was pretty but I thought he was prETTIER” jk is whipped. When you love someone, it doesn’t matter where you are as long as you’re with them. This was JM through JK’s eyes.

🔹 The fact that SO MANY comments were saying they feel like they’re on a date with Jimin.

What does that make Jungkook then??? All these fans who can see the romance in the air but like to put it on themselves since they wanna be with Jimin is fine, but it showed the video was extremely date-like, as if Jungkook himself was on a date with Jimin. If jungkook treated a girl like that, everyone would lose their minds. But since it’s a guy, it’s just a friendship.

🔹 People even have the audacity to say JK made the vid so army could have a dating sim with JM??? Are you fucking kidding me? JK made the vid for HIMSELF. That’s why he used copyright music. If he was doing it for fans, he would have used their own music to make profit and he would have told Jimin about it

🔹 Since Jimin DID NOT KNOW JK was gonna post the video. He said he would have acted differently. If the video were a “dating simulator” Jimin would have been his stage persona but he was real, raw, and as pure as we will ever see him. It was the real JM that only JK gets to see. And he was so happy. He was truly happy with JK at his side.

🔹 Dreams do come true, kids. JM since 2013 wanted to go on a vacation with JK, just by themselves if they ever had time and they finally were able to, in the happiest place on earth. I don’t care if jikook is real and I don’t know but it’s obvious that they definitely love each other, romantically or platonically.

has anyone else had that moment at a 1d concert where you don’t scream, you barely move, and you just… watch harry. and you’re just in utter awe. because he’s there. and he’s real. and he’s 10x more attractive up close and in real life. and you’re just overcome with all these emotions…………. because he comes on the stage and all you can think is ‘holy shit that’s him’

One of the interviews from Red Carpet at MTV EMAs:

I’m super excited now, the atmosphere is making me so nervous I don’t know what to say. It’s also my first time coming to such a big overseas awards. i hope I can see some very famous artistes live stage & learn a lot of things. I think it’ll be a very good memory to keep and hope that i can make a few friends today.

Q: Whose performance are u looking forward to? 

A: I heard that eminem will be coming.I really want to watch their performance. Travis scott & French Montana. I’m a fan & I really want to see him. Say hi to him & let him know Wang Jia Er. I also hope that I can tell more artistes about China’s music, not only that, but also it’s culture. I also want more people to know about the group that I’m in right now, GOT7. 

Q: Do u have any music related plans in London this time? 

A: Mainly the EMAs, I have no time for other plans.

Q: What’s ur impression of London? actually I was preparing for the London olympics during my fencing days. Now coming to London for the first time as a singer, I’m also very happy. Thank you. Hurry go to sleep you guys! (those on the live stream)~

daisyyfields

Jikook have been so obvious recently, and I’m lovin it. They just don’t give a single fuck about people and what they think, and same I’ve come to a point where if jikook kiss on stage I won’t be surprised at all and will just be like oh yeh so what they are lovers they can kiss in front of people.

I have always tried to respect people when it comes to jikook and not disagree with anyone’s opinion but recently I’ve seen people saying things like. Respect jikook and their relationship because they might so close because they are best friends like the proper close type of where skinship is normal even kissing them but it’s all none sexual.

—first that bts has lived together for so long I don’t think there is anything like friends and close friends between them they are all equally close to each other. ( Unless it’s something more than friendship like jikook) Hence why bts is so successful as team.

Let me tell all those people I am engaged, I have a lover I know what’s friends relationship vs romantic relationship. They are not the same for obvious reasons which I’m sure everyone knows. And the way jikook behave towards each other I don’t sense just friendship it’s something else definitely something else. Boys are never affectionate or subtle between each other like even however close they might.

—A male friend (jk) would never get jealous of his”best friend” (jm)being close or affectionate twords other male friends (other bts members) especially if they all live together and are all close to each other.

—Two male friends would not be so eager to sit and stay next to each other 24/7 or become happy when they are asked to team up or lose just to share room with the other

— a Male friend would never film a another friend and make a top quality edit of only that friend with the background music bing about gay love.

— a male friend or any friends in general would never get flustered or look whipped when another friend looks at them or complements them.

JUDGEMENT - IUDEX GUNDYR

The Judgement card calls for a period of reflection and self-evaluation. Through meditation or quiet reflection, you may come to a point of deep understanding about the common themes throughout your life and what you can do or change to avoid these situations in the future. Judgement tells you that you are close to reaching a significant stage in your own journey.

With its theme of awakening to new life, the Judgement card suggests that you have reviewed and evaluated your past experiences and have learned from them. All the pieces of the puzzle of your life are finally coming together to form one, integrated picture of your life story. This integration has healed any deep wounds and you are now in a position to put the past behind you. Your memories no longer haunt you, and you are able to understand and value what has happened to you and what it has taught you about life. Now, you are ready to confront any unfinished business in your life, clear up any misunderstandings and view the future with peace and deep ‘knowingness’ in your heart.

In the very first steps of our journey, Gundyr the judge tests the mettle of all Unkindled who’ve been aroused from their eternal sleep by the toll of the bell. The first crucial moment in our journey is defeating this towering giant– now consumed by the Pus of Man, maybe he remembers nothing but the task he became a slave to, the moment his Prisoner’s chain was bequeathed to him.

Upright: Judgement, rebirth, inner calling, absolution

Reversed: Self-doubt, refusal of self-examination

Transiting Venus in Libra
October 14, 2017 - November 7, 2017

Aphrodite is at home when Venus is in Libra and she activates the lover in everybody. We approach our social life, relationship, and matters of romance like we are consuming sugar, and there is a real desire to luxuriate in our natural pleasures. Also, the actual consumption of sugar can increase, because Venus is the ruler of confectionery, sugar, and sweet treats. This is a good time for appreciating the quality of relationships in our life, be it with friends, lovers, or family members. The energy of Libra is all about connection, harmony, and unity. If you have been feeling disconnected or isolated, Aphrodite responds with her appetite for togetherness, and she encourages us to re-establish and maintain contact with other people. She exhales the breath of tranquility, so it’s possible to resolve conflicts and disagreements. Venus also rules over financial matters, and she is prone to excess in her own sign. It means that we can become less concerned with financial responsibility and spend more money on personal luxuries like new clothes, make up, dining out, alcohol, caramel mochas, home decore, and social events. The relationship sector is the whipped cream of life with Venus in Libra. It’s a time for spending weekends cozying up to loved ones watching Netflix, cooking with lovers, getting a new hairstyle and feeling your most beautiful, and enjoying the traditions of dating and old fashioned romance. Transiting Venus in Libra offers many different experiences, pleasures, and creative inspiration for different people. The qualities of Venus operate where she is placed in your personal horoscope. 

It’s important that you check your own transit chart for validation, because some people have signs close to the house cusp which can move it into the following house, or have Venus making significant aspects to outer natal planets


Aries rising or transiting Venus in the 7th house: Venus in Libra may be quintessentially social, but her condition in the 7th house also generates the need for self reflection and quiet appreciation. The sense of belonging is especially emphasised, and through the Venus mirror, loved ones reveal their finest qualities. The relationship stage is especially under the spotlight here, but it’s also about acknowledging and appreciating their own beauty, it’s a time for falling in love with themselves. All matters of business partnership present opportunity for wealth development. 

Taurus rising or Venus transiting the 6th house: Work and maintaining the responsibilities of daily life become easier and harmonic. It’s possible to develop closer relationships with colleagues and find work especially enjoyable, especially for the social aspect. The energy for sacrifice is great, the person can burn themselves out trying to be all things to all people. Health matters come into focus, the individual can make or break their diet or health regime. It may be very difficult to resist sugar and lollies, the person can experience sugar highs and lows and extreme changes in mood. It can also emphasise health anxieties. Looking after themselves helps them feel better about themselves

Gemini rising: or Venus transiting the 5th house Personal amusement and pleasures becomes an insatiable urge, the individual may spend a lot of time cooking, eating out, spending money, having sex, and possibly think about children. There may be an opportunity for developing romance and satisfying romantic and sexual fantasies. Venus is comfortable here, maybe a little bit too comfortable. Her sultry side and seductive side is the star of the show. The ego celebrates its existence through creativity 

Cancer rising or Venus in the 4th house: Home is a safe place where they return to a place of belonging. The appreciation for family members, especially the mother and sisters becomes especially enhanced, it’s a time when their mum can become their best friend. Family and domestic disputes can be resolved, because Aphrodite is so rattled by resentful energy. Instead of going out, the individual loves more than ever to be surrounded by friends and family in the home under the blankets and sharing stories between movies. The individual may spend a lot of money on the home decorating or re-designing  

Leo rising or Venus in the 3rd house:  The communication is decorated in cupcake ice, so the verbal delivery can be more beautiful, harmonising, and attractive than ever. The sensory environment becomes exquisitely provocative, so the individual can be more responsive than ever to music, meaningful conversation, literature, or conflict. Social contact is important and the individual can be more talkative and engaged with friends. The person may spend quality time with siblings or resolve conflict between them. There may be nothing more pleasurable than spending the afternoon reading a book, magazine, or a blog 

Virgo rising or Venus transiting the 2nd house: The sensory appreciation is enhanced here and there can be an increased urgency for affection, the protection of loved ones, and having somebody to provide for. It’s possible that the individual will spend a lot of money on their dependants and investments. Creative material can generate capital, and all matters of business partnership present opportunity for wealth development. It’s possible that the income will stabilise if it has been unreliable 

Libra rising or Venus transiting the 1st house: After surrendering to loneliness and exile, social contact is emphasised and relationships validate their existence. The individual wants to be seen with their lover, somebody they are proud to be a part of. A beautiful appearance is in the mirror’s eye, the person can be more mindful on presenting a polished image and experimenting with personal style. If the individual is not in a relationship, Venus here can conduct a bee-to-honey performance where romantic interests emerge from their hiding place

Scorpio rising or Venus transiting the 12th house: Pleasures can be consumed in excess, alone, away from the eyes of company. This makes it possible for the individual to lose sight of how far they have gone. This could be any personal indulgence like eating, substance use, pursuing forbidden romance, or gambling. Venus is social, but here she is quiet, inactive, and dreamy. The streaks of melancholy can generate inspirational creativity. Old lovers can come out of the woodwork. If the person is in a relationship, the partner may become unwell or need to be looked after. Much of this time is likely spent alone with the partner, napping together. Personal income may become uncertain 

Sagittarius rising or transiting Venus in the 11th house: Friends are the sweet sugar of life and there is no better time to appreciate the good qualities they bring to your life. The social calendar can be especially active right now. The individual may desire to join a group, charity, or an organisation. It’s possible that friendships or relationships can develop online, and the individual may enjoy sharing spiritual knowledge, astrology, or political revelations with friends or online circles. The personal style can become experimental

Capricorn rising or transiting Venus in the 10th house: Expect a warm response from the public. You are more socially radiant and desirable than ever. But do they see the real you? or are they blinded by the image they have and want of you? It’s important to decipher this possibility. You can charm yourself into that promotion you desire or impress superiors with your personal qualities. Venus here may also resolve conflict with parents or offer reward for all the hard work, maybe the individual finally has enough money to buy that object of material desire. 

Aquarius rising or transiting Venus in the 9th house: You can enjoy yourself again without excess guilt or compulsive self destruction. The individual may think about traveling or even book a trip overseas. Long distance relationships can begin. Also the love of learning and matters of the spirit are enhanced, it means that playing with astrology can be really fun. If you study tertiary education, you may be more interested in the social events, parties, and being with your university friends than going to the lectures. This also means that group work assignments are easier, for once. Personal comment, I think we all know group assignments are the worst lol. Ok back to focusing. It’s also a good time for accessing the help you need from academics or expert advice from any professional like doctors or psychiatrists. 

Pisces rising or transiting Venus in the 8th house: Deep desires and romantic longings reveal themselves as sexual desires, so the person can be drawn to close and intimate experiences. This isn’t really a comfortable place for Venus. It can activate her dark desires or obsessions. The course of current relationships will grow deeper and more intense, it’s time to the plunge and expose the parts of themselves they have feared to reveal before lovers. There can be physical urges and sensations without causation, powerful attractions to forbidden, complex, and mesmerising people. The person can be more secretive than usual.

y’all think I’m joking about the mosh pits at the symphony, but I’m dead serious.

classical music concerts have seriously become way too stuffy, and it’s genuinely making people hate the genre entirely. no one wants to come to a concert where they’ll get chastised for clapping at the wrong time or breathing too loud. and I get that you can’t headbang to a bach partita, but for some composers, their music wasn’t meant to be listened to in a stone-faced, reverent silence that’s required at all classical concerts. 

at any given symphony, there’s around 100 musicians on stage, and the concert halls usually have unbelievably great acoustics. it’s like nothing else, and we’re expected to just sit quietly during these epic brass and percussion parts? the musicians are pouring their hearts out and the conductor is literally dripping sweat onto his score, and we can only show a minimal amount of enthusiasm? that’s bull.

at heavy metal concerts, people will mosh and headbang even if the music isn’t particularly great, because that’s just what you’re expected to do. at classical concerts, people just sit, seemingly unimpressed and critical and on the verge of falling asleep, because that’s what you’re expected to do. it’s a relatively recent phenomenon, and I think it’s something that can be changed and should be changed if we want more people to be able to listen to and sincerely enjoy classical music.

meaning of Havana MV

Okay, so…

I. Scene 1: Camila with Juan1 and Juan2

Camila wore YELLOW (THE SUN: LMJ) Notice that Camila’s used the Yellow background in the song cover, as well as on her Fallon performance. Yellow. Like the Sun. Who loves the Sun? LMJ.

As to the characters, Juan 1 and Juan 2, the twins…- At the outset, there are two sides to a person, the side everyone sees and the side that none or only a few select get to see.

Juan 1 could be public Lauren and Juan 2, private Lauren. Now we all know that Lauren values her privacy.

Camila’s rxn to Juan1 on the bed with another woman— g!p usual reaction to Lauren’s PR relationships, thus:

Juan1: Laucy and everyone LMJ’s been paired with. PR. Didn’t we all think that Camila’s heart broke everytime an LMJ PR boy/girlfriend surfaced?

Juan2: the real LMJ. “So now you’re out of the closet?” “Yes, I did it all for you.”

Every now and then we’d come across the theory that indeed Lauren had to come out so Camila’s sexuality wouldn’t suffer further scrutiny. She’s not yet ready. Let her live.

*insert Juan2 proposal: WE ALL KNOW ABOUT THE CAMREN RINGS* — also, this is Lauren. She came out last year (2016) remember.


Okay…next:

II. Scene 2: Lele, Grandma.. words of advice. Live your life. Camila going solo, pursuing her dreams, insisting that Havana be released.. she did all that.


III. Scene 3: Havana starts playing. — in the beginning we see Camila dancing with 2 men. I think they’re the beards she’s been paired with, whom she ‘rejected’ see how she pushed them away?

Camila dancing and then singing on stage.— Public figure/Singer/Performer/Celebrity Camila.


IV. Scene 4: ENTER TALL MALE (Noah).— at first we only see his silhouette against THE SUNLIGHT. AGAIN. Sun reference: LMJ. Their attraction became a distraction. Backstage they loved, fought, made up—aka CAMREN off-cam. Note: “NO WAY”. They wanna be together, everyone else doesn’t. The pressure became too much. You know how the story goes…


Scene 5: CAMILA CHOOSES HERSELF OVER LOVER. “I do love you, but I love me more.” Lover drives away, Camila cries.

—- back to reality —

Scene 5: Camila doesn’t like the ending: “So that’s it?? You end up alone??” To which the movie character Camila replies: “if you don’t like my story, GO WRITE YOUR OWN.” And so real life Camila heads out of the theater.

Scene 6: Camila meets TALL MALE IRL (LMJ). Instantly they’re pulled close together, and they dance.— Clearly, they’re MEANT TO BE. They can’t escape their fate. The reason their LIFE PATHS CROSSED IS CUZ CAMREN IS ENDGAME.

(Like what Lauren said about why her favorite song off of 7/27 is “No Way”) ❤️🌹❤️


Thank you for sharing the Havana mv (and your story) with us, Camila Cabello.

Camren is real. Camren is endgame.🦋

Highlights from Exit 82′s performance of Be More Chill
  • During the Boyf Riends scene in More Than Survive, Jeremy and Michael stand next to each other to line the words up rather than taking their backpacks off.
  • Christine wears overall shorts with a long-sleeve pink shirt.
  • Rich talks to Jeremy before the Squip Song while he’s peeing. When asked how he does that, Rich takes both hands away, wiggles his fingers, and replies, “Confidence.”
  • During the first chorus of Two-Player Game, Michael starts dabbing. The audience promptly loses its shit.
  • Jeremy and Michael play leap-frog during TPG. They also pull off some sweet karate moves.
  • Scary Stockboy has a Scary Stockgirl companion. The latter is dressed in typical emo fashion; when Jeremy sees her, he says, “My Chemical Romance, am I right?”
  • The Squip has little light-up green dots on his shirt, and they’re all you can see when he first walks onto the back platform in a blackout. Blue and red dots are added as the show progresses.
  • Jeremy shoves Michael toward the bathtub after calling him a loser. Michael, thunderstruck, grabs onto it and doesn’t move.
  • Rather than singing “…at a party” near the end of Michael in the Bathroom, Michael weakly sobs it. Half of the audience is now in tears.
  • Jeremy and Christine talk on the couch with a giant unicorn between them as the Halloween party dies down. As this is happening, Rich stands center stage, screaming about Mountain Dew Red. When nobody answers him, he stays there, twitching and clutching his head.
  • The full cast, including the guys, are onstage during Smartphone Hour. They’re dressed in crop tops and glittery skirts.
  • The cast wears sneakers with light-up soles during Pitiful Children.
  • The longer the Squip is onstage, the more dramatic his makeup gets. In the first scene he looks relatively normal, but in his next scene, he has black, computer-like, lines-and-circles makeup on his neck. When he comes in later it’s crept up his left cheek, and by The Play it’s all the way up to his eyebrow with blue highlights added in.
  • Costume changes accompany these subtle shifts in makeup, starting with a plain jacket and ending with a near-floor-length leather one.
  • The Squip rarely interacts with the cast members directly; for the most part, he stays on the back platform, advising and controlling Jeremy from afar. Jeremy finally confronts him face-to-face after the fire, and during The Play, The Squip joins the rest of the cast on ground level.
  • Just before The Play, Christine addresses the audience as though we’re spectators at Middle Borough. When Michael makes an entrance he hops out of the crowd onto the stage like he was watching with us.
  • The audience cheers so loud after this that the orchestra has to hold its music until it’s quiet enough to continue.
  • When the cast of The Play says “I just feel so connected to you guys right now!” long ropes of neon lights drop from the ceiling. They attach these ropes to their backs like electrical cords.
  • It looks like Jeremy is about to kiss (Squipped) Christine instead of giving her the Mountain Dew Red. Michael, unable to watch this, turns away and almost walks offstage.
  • Michael screams “FUCK!” after the cast finishes screaming and dropping to the ground.
  • Once everyone has passed out, the Squip claws his way desperately across the floor toward Jeremy. Before he makes it, he collapses center stage with a puff of smoke.
  • The Squip stumbles back onstage at the end of Voices In My Head. The cast shoves him away, but rather than pushing him like everyone else, Michael just gives him the finger and grins.
