THE EXO’RDIUM IN SINGAPORE – A SUMMARY

XIUMIN:
God of mimicking fans. Asked for an opinion from fans on what they should talk about, ends up not understanding and teasing all of them in return. TWICE. Really hyperactive and energetic; jumping around and across the stage. One second cute, the next second a beast. Flawless skin. Voice is like warm tea on a cold day.

SUHO:
Super fluffy and hops around stage. Did his segments mostly in English (salutes). Says REAL cheesy things to fans; and in return we become speechless. Gives fans tons of fan-service, throws hearts everywhere and poses for their cameras. A really soothing and lovely voice. Squishy cheeks. Looks like a greek god in real life. Puts Adonis to shame.

BAEKHYUN:
VERY mischievous, you can see it in his gaze. Ad-libs like craaaazy all over the place but somehow still manages to sound amazing. Is an actual 5 year old – plays with gifts thrown onto the stage during the encore segment, but also a sweetheart because it’s not allowed but appreciates fans’ thoughtfulness. High chance of being a good dad in the future; gently dissuaded fans from throwing things onto the stage. Solid power-packed vocals. Plays with bubbles.

CHEN:
An actual sweetheart; searches for fans in ever nook and cranny of the hall and makes sure that he waves to them. Vocals A+, never misses a note. Shouted “make some noise” and managed to drag it into a high note at the end. Incredible dancing – chensing machine living up to his name. Why isn’t ‘Towel x Jongdae’ a thing? Literally glows. Has a smile that heals everything.

CHANYEOL:
Cool one second and breaks out into laughter the next. Talented as hell; works the guitar and the DJ set like it’s child’s play. A real rap God. Saw a Yoda face costume mask and put it on; no difference. Really lovely singing voice. Amazing body proportions. An actual giant.

D.O:
Super squishy and adorable but has a manly personality. Charismatic speaking voice. Had a few flat notes but all was well the moment he smiled. Singing voice is like melted honey. Shows appreciation for fans in his own weird way. Luminous elastic spring balls are his favourite toy – confirmed. Swings them like crazy and almost killed someone.

KAI:
A dance God. Dancing that brings goosebumps; graceful yet sharp. Super beautiful skin tone. Literally glowing on stage. Throws smirks at every chance he has. Singing voice is highly underrated. Saw a fanboard that apologised for what happened at the airport, told the fan that “it’s okay”. An actual angel we do not deserve. 

SEHUN:
Underrated rapping and singing; huge vocal improvement. Another dance God; one second fluid the next second sharp. Crazy visuals. Crazy body proportions. Jawline that could cut someone. Soft and tender heart; was asked what he would like for his birthday and he said “snacks for vivi”. Teared up when fans sang him his birthday song twice.

  • and he tries to deny it
  • but vernon still teases him
  • and almost dies when a guitar is hurled towards him, yikes, sorry my man but you need to stay in your lane

  • he turns pale
  • Woozi sends him a picture of his guitar with the message “expect it when i get home bitch, don’t touch what’s mine next time”

  • it’s a picture of you asleep in woozi’s arms and he’s pressing a kiss to your temple
  • but its short lived because he can see woozi’s guitar in the background

Yuri on Ice BD choreography commentary translation - Volume 3

I’m alive… There were too many things this month, I can’t believe we’re already halfway through. Anyway, finally, here’s the full translation of the choreography commentary from the BD/DVD vol.3. The commentary is by Kenji Miyamoto & Mitsurou Kubo, as usual. This time it’s Minami’s FS, Phichit’s SP, Leo’s SP and Chris’ SP. More programs so of course it’s longer than usual.

Notes:
-It’s two people talking, not a written interview, so expect them to hop from one subject to another within the same sentence… Even if it sounds a bit unconnected at times, that’s how they said it.
-I still arranged it a little to make it easier to understand as written material, by removing lots of “ehm” “uuhm” “you know” “yes” (I especially removed all instances where someone says “yes” in the middle of the other speaking) and fumbled words.
-Amusingly enough both their initials are KM/MK, but I used the surname initials so M is Miyamoto and K is Kubo.
-I put (LOL) when they’re laughing because otherwise some lines might sound serious while they’re actually joking.

***VERY IMPORTANT***
Do NOT use this translation for subtitles, in ANY way.
I don’t support the upload of bonuses contained in BDs/DVDs, as they are meant to be (as the word says) bonuses for the people who spent money to purchase them. If you like a series so much that you absolutely need to watch the bonus contents, please buy the BDs/DVDs.

Translation under the cut since it’s twice the usual length.

im back with some garbage kwami swap/ kinda life swap/crush swap au i like to call “angst-free au” with a shitload of irony. i’ll draw more of it later when i have time 

basically its just all swap but the bad parts are gone

this is what me and @gorovaia came up with 

  • sabine is the fashion mogul and marinette occasionally models for her, but school is no. 1 priority
  • bc school is important she lives with tom above the bakery (they’re divorced or separated but on good terms) because she’s always away on business. the 3 still have a good relationship
  • ADRIEN AND GABRIEL LIVE NEXT DOOR TO THE BAKERY so they’re neighbours, he’s not a mean dad but Gabe is always busy working to support his son (and being a villain) so tom pretty much adopts him and it’s like his second home at the bakery
  • Their balconies are right next to each other. They’re separated by a short brick wall
  • Tom and Gabriel are friends
  • Marinette is like, the coolest person Adrien has ever met and she’s so pretty how can he not be crushing on her. She played the GUITAR for JAGGED STONE and DESIGNED HIS ALBUM
  • Adrien seems cool to Marinette, he’s a bit shy sometimes but he’s goofy and she loves him anyway, not like that though (maybe)(((possibly))), because she loves Ladybug, he’s so cool and handsome and amazing yadda yadda

Barcelona[Rafael Casal x Reader]

Summary: Nostalgia hits when you receive a very important call from work. 

Warnings: None, this is the fluffiest. 

Word Count: 1,872

Author’s Notes: YO THIS TOOK ME SO LONG, my goodness i’m relieved to finally release something, feels like it’s been forever since I posted anything. I wanna thank my girls @ourforgottenboleros and @tempfixeliza for helping me with this, i honestly don’t know what i’d have done without you. I hope you guys like my first Rafa fic, please feel free to tell me what you think <3

askbox | masterlist


Very little things could be compared to the call you just hang up from.  You hid both of your hands inside the arms of the Rafael’s sweatshirt that you were wearing, before burying your face in your hands not being able to hold an excited squeal.

It happened. The call you waited your whole career for finally happened.

You bit your lip, unsure of what to do next. The excitement quickly tickled your nerves, the anxiety always creeping in as it does. As you tried to shake the misgiving and the relentlessness out, you got up from the comfortable couch, heading to your boyfriend’s office.

It was now or never, you had to tell him.

A short story that I didn’t write, but still needs told.

A man is at his barber. He goes their regularly and every time he comes he reads his Bible while he waits for his haircut.

One day, the barber, just finishing up the man’s cut remarks, “Look, I know you’re Christian and you’re a good person, but I just want to say, I don’t believe in God.”

The man nods, having heard this often. He sighs and picks up his Bible, “I’m sorry to hear that. Can I ask why not?”

“Well,” the barber explains, “If God exists, why are there bad people? Why are there murderers and terrorists? Why would a loving God let his people live like that?”

The man stares out the window for a second before responding, “I see your point. Say, do you see that man?” He points to a long haired man playing his guitar across the street.

“Yeah. What about him?” The barber is confused, but he lets the man speak.

“I don’t believe in barbers. If barbers existed, that man wouldn’t have such long, untamed hair.”

The barbers eyes widened, “But I’m a barber!” He exclaims, “I can’t cut that guys hair if he doesn’t want me to! He has to come to me!”

The man nodded, “Excactly.”

You see, God gave us the free will to chose what we do, for he knows that obedience is nothing if it is forced. Bad people must come to him. Just like the long-haired man must come to the barber if he wants a trim.

WINTERSUN 2nd GUITARIST REVEALED

Wintersun’s second guitarist is 27-year old Asim Searah. We welcome Asim to the band!

Asim was born in Pakistan and moved to Finland at the age of 18 to pursue a career in music and has been playing in several bands and projects since then.

We’ve known him for a long time and we knew he is a great singer, but we didn’t realise how talented and skillful guitar player he is. Asim was actually the first who sent us an audition video, which surprised us very positively. After the video auditions and two rounds of live auditions we realised he was exactly what we were looking for. He is very motivated and passionate with a good heavy metal attitude - a great guitar player and vocalist to improve the live sound of Wintersun even further!

Asim comments:

“It’s an honour to be a part of a band that I have looked up to for many years. It’s definitely a dream come true and I’m super excited to share the stage with Wintersun!”

If You Only Knew - Live From Houston (x)

Taylor Swift music videos masterpost

Music video for “Look What You Made Me Do” will be out tomorrow and it will attract a lot of views not just for itself but also for all Taylor’s videos and I just thought it would be nice if we tried to get a couple of new VEVO Certifications during Reputation era.

Here’s music videos that haven’t reached 100 million views marks + amount of views:

Picture To Burn: 94 million
New Romantics: 67 million
Ours: 65 million
Sparks Fly: 53 million
Fearless: 47 million
Change: 45 million
Tim McGraw: 36 million
I’m Only Me When I’m With You: 36 million
The Last Time: 30 million
The Best Day: 18 million

As soon as New Romantic gets VEVO Certification, all videos from 1989 era will have this “award”. The same with The Last Time and Red era.

Two music videos from Speak Now era haven’t reached 100 million mark, three from Fearless era and three from Taylor Swift era as well.

Other music videos are also close to achieve their next VEVO certifications:

Second Vevo Certification:

Back To December: 169 million
Mean: 163 million
Our Song: 155 million
Begin Again: 136 million
Fifteen: 135 million
White Horse: 131 million
Red: 127 million
Out Of The Woods: 121 million
Safe & Sound: 119 million
Teardrops On My Guitar: 117 million
The Story Of Us: 100 million

Third Vevo Certification:

Mine: 256 million
Everything Has Changed: 238 million

Fourth Vevo Certification:

Love Story: 393 million
I Don’t Wanna Live Forever: 375 million
I Knew You Were Trouble: 371 million

Fifth Vevo Certification:

We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together: 479 million
22: 438 million

Sixth Vevo Certification:

Wildest Dreams: 566 million
Style: 503 million

Eighth Vevo Certification:

You Belong With Me: 746 million

Twelfth Vevo Certification:

Bad Blood: 1 104 million

Twenty-second Vevo Certification:

Blank Space: 2 140 million

Twenty-fourth Vevo Certification:

Shake It Off: 2 343 million 

All of @taylorswift music videos are really cool and I think all of them deserve to have at least one vevo certification. Just remember that only 10 music videos by Taylor out of 34 don’t have such award. Reputation era will surely bring us a couple of videos with millions of views and along with fetus videos Taylor will change history once again!

Guys Night Out ~ pt.2

Author: completedylantrash

Characters: reader x Stiles x Stuart

Rating: NSFW 18+ EXPLICIT Smut

Word Count: 3746

Synopsis: After you finish up your night at the club, you come home to find someone waiting for you.

A/N: This has some rough unprotected sex in it. Spanking, hair pulling, all that good stuff. Practice safe sex people, this is fiction! NO Twins x reader action, if that’s your thing go for it, but no threesome in this. I’m still trying to figure out where to go after this ends…

Enjoy =)

Part 1



I climb the stairs to my apartment, ready to throw on some sweats and stuff my face with junk food while watching The Avengers. I can’t think of anything better than spending the rest of my night with my hot Marvel men.

“Ooo! Cap and Loki, here I come!” I squeal as I jump the last couple of steps to the landing. I stop dead in my tracks when I see Stiles leaned against the wall next to my front door. “Stiles…whatcha doin’?” I say in a sing-song voice, narrowing my eyes at the Stilinski boy in front of me and take a deep breath.

“Waiting for you,” he smiles as he slips his hands in his front pockets.

anonymous asked:

I JHH! You said you didn't mind posting the full updates from Pledge here so I wanted to ask if you could post the whole video or David and Miller. They're so cute, and my mum doesn't want to pay for David's new album now because my grades were lame so I'm grounded. I hope you will post it and don't get to much shit for it! <3

I don’t mind! and I don’t mind getting shit either. It’s just 30 more seconds, so enjoy this extreme cuteness :)

Here’s the little text attached too : “I’ve seen the transformative power that music has had in my children’s lives and mine, I believe in musical education and that musical education is not superfluous to overall education but rather increases altitude for learning in all areas. I picked up a guitar for the first time when I was 49 years old. I didn’t have a teacher at the time. I just thought, Well, I’ve always wanted to play guitar, at the same time I wanted my kids to see me try something new. It’s something I’m always talking to my them about. Now both my kids are probably better than me.”

And tell your mum you’ll do better next year if you can have this album!

Since Armani White’s last release, the well-received “Picture Perfect”, the Philly native has been practically living in the studio working on new music. Today we are proud to present the first new track from those sessions titled “Secret Handshake”. For a description I’ll let Armani take it from here…   “Secret Handshake boasts an illustrious lifestyle while still battling with my insecurities as an artist in one mood swing. The song kicks off with a high energy recollection of successions and scandals spread across synth pads, live guitars and viola strings. KilConfirmed rolls a smooth bass solo across the hook that segues into a more sensitive second verse.”

anonymous asked:

I would like to know what you though of his live SOTT vocals!

They were insanely good. I was really, really, REALLY impressed. He’s obviously been working with a vocal coach, and it shows.

Right off the bat, the first verse hit me like a fucking truck. The tone and the texture of his voice were to die for. His voice sounded thick, a little smoky, a little gritty…..it was just so unique. I had palpitations. His voice has matured and deepened and….holy cow it was incredible.

I liked the addition of the live band and their voices. They added some falsetto in SOTT, which I liked. My only complaint in that regard is that we didn’t get to hear Harry’s beautiful falsetto by itself. The other vocal additions from the band I really, really loved. He picked a good group. Their harmonies were especially beautiful during ESNY.

When the second verse started and the music picked up and more guitars were added, I just though, “holy shit, rockstar!” When he started doing the note changes, and little vocal flourishes, I was done. Amazing. I was very happy to see the return of “Stage Harry” with his cute mannerisms, unique dance moves, sexy faces, etc. And, as usual, he was passionate and emotive in his singing. He didn’t just stand there and hit the notes. He performed.

I’m putting some technical stuff under a cut because I have a lot to say and most people don’t care

Words

Originally posted by ghosts-understand-my-fairytales



AN: Okay, i wrote another unspecified thing, idk its about how i had a writers block, how they are for me sometimes

Word count: just over 500

TW: None


Words used to come easy. They always had. You were constantly writing before. Without stop. Whether it be poetry, essays for school or just for fun. The words flowing out of a pen, covering pages upon pages of blank paper. Sometimes handwritten, and sometimes by machine. Sometimes song lyrics, and other times  random words. Always finding new words and always articulating your feelings perfectly. 


Then something changed. You could not put your finger on it, maybe the words stopped feeling descriptive enough. Like the dictionary ran out of words. Like they weren’t making any sense anymore. Or maybe a writer’s block, except it covered everything. The sassy comebacks stopped, the good grades on essays stopped. The feelings stopped. 


Then something happens. This boy walks in the door to your life. And everything changes. He brings songs and laughter and joy. Melodies to your life that you cannot explain. It fills the house, the street, the world. Everything is full of colours. The sunset is golden again, and the sunrise pink. The sun is yellow, and the sky is blue. The autumn red and spring is green. And after a while the words come back. Not in actual words, but in the guitar that he holds in your lap. Your back against his chest, and fingers running past each other. 


Then at long last the words come back, when he is gone. It is an early morning, and you wake from a dream. Nothing on your mind in particular. The other side of the bed is cold, and the tea water from last night is cold in the boiler. You wake up and do your morning routine. Just to cast a longing look at the guitar in the corner of the room. Taking it with out to the bed, that is cold now, you sit down. With your back on the padded headboard, and guitar in your hands the chords come flowing from your fingers. At first shaky and unsure, but then stronger, as your fingers re- familiarize themselves with the neck of the guitar. 


The words spring to mind as you sit there on the bed. All the words you missed, the ones you could not make sense of before. They are all coming back to you. In a good order, with meaning and purpose.

——————

Y/N: Thank you

He looks down in confusion at the text, his brows scrunch together as the second message ticks in.

Y/N: for giving me the tools to find my words again

He just smiles down at his phone. He knows of your struggles to find words. Has lived through them too. It has been long conversations, where there has been a lot of pauses and stocky sentences. He knows the feeling all too well.

To Y/N: No worries

That is all he has to say, although he is exited to hear what helped, he contains it. This is her moment to enjoy. 

@marsdaydream replied to your photo:  happy birthday to my favourite dude i don’t really…                

   this is amazing, would love to know the story behind these sometime <3  

what the hey, why not. :)

i started playing guitar age 13, and became obsessed with U2 age 15, in 1997. i knew a dude who had bootleg hookups, so at some point i started hearing recordings from the ‘80s of fans being pulled on stage to play guitar. and nearly every time, it was cringeworthy! i was amazed by the people who would say they could play just to get on stage when they clearly couldn’t. of course i thought, THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME, but the practice seemed to have been left in the ‘80s. UNTIL! about halfway through the elevation tour (after i had managed to meet the whole band and see eight shows, including london and slane), someone was pulled up! ohhhh shit. game changer. i made a sign saying i was guitarist in a U2 cover band. i was full of nerves. of course i wanted to play with my heroes, but i didn’t actually want to play with my heroes in front of 20,000 fucking people. the idea felt 200x worse than those stupid oral report butterflies i would get in school. i decided i would have the sign with me, and if i felt it in the moment i would go for it, but otherwise i let myself off the hook. UNTIL! bono walked around the heart during ‘new year’s day,’ and caught my eye, literally doing a double-take to turn around and look at me. what the fuck? i know he’s good with faces, and we’d had a particularly cool moment on the first leg of the tour, but that was seven months ago, and also, what the fuck? (in a crowd outside the arena in anaheim, i’d asked to shake his hand, and he kissed the back of it, looked me dead in the eye, lingered, and said, “you’re cool.” ;akljsd;alj) whatever this moment of eye contact was, whatever that swivel of his head meant, it convinced me i had to hold the sign up. 

“what can you play?” he asked me. “anything,” i said, but i wanted to play ‘stay.’ he requested ‘something more upbeat.’ i’d only thought about this as far as knowing i wanted to play ‘stay,’ so him putting me on the spot in front of 20,000 people meant literally the only other thing i could think of was ‘people get ready.’ and you know what? i do not regret that for one second. since that’s what some of the other people had played before me during the tour, the band were on it, and larry and adam joined in halfway through. bono’s not kidding, that shit will alter the shape of your spine. i will never forget that feeling as long as i live.

fast-forward to the vertigo tour (during which i saw bono outside an arena and he mimed air guitar at me. this man and his memory, i swear to fuck). [tense switch, apologies] then: croke park, night 3, i have ‘let go’ written on my hand, as has become tradition, borrowed from irish singer/songwriter mark geary. bono sees this during ‘streets,’ reaches over, and we touch fingers ET style. moments later, he’s pulling a giant banner out of the crowd, and then ME to hold it! “it’s a bed-in moment,” he says from beneath the sheet. he then also pulls my drummer, pam, who’s with me (as she was the first time, with a sign that legit said, “she’s really good” with an arrow pointing to me. HAHAHA.) the two of us stand on the croke park stage in front of 80,000 lighters while the band plays ‘one.’ i can feel the bass reverberating beneath my feet.

susan, our bassist (of said previously mentioned U2 cover band, then called EXIT, now an original trio called @xsandarrows) laments over how we’ve both now been on stage, and the only way she will ever be is if the whole freaking band is pulled up, because who’s going to pull up someone just to play bass? when U2 returns to LA, to the staples center, scene of my original crime, she makes a banner that says THE GIRLS PLAY ROCK N ROLL. our second singer is with us, trevi, who stepped in to continue writing original songs with us after nikki, the original singer and U2 lover, left. she’s a good sport, queuing all day for this band she only casually likes, entirely, if somewhat blindly, game for susan’s scheming. bono sees the sign. “you can’t play,” he teases susan. he sees me. “you can play,” he says. we’re lifted onto the ellipse. he asks what we want to do. “out of control,” i say into his mic. i’m handed bono’s big green gretsch by phil, and a flimsy bono pick. i panic, and ask for a thicker pick. how am i going to play this song on this bulky ass guitar?! suddenly there’s edge. “do you want to play this one?” he grins, AND HANDS ME HIS FUCKING EXPLORER (and a herdim). yes, much better!?! they first sit on the riser like little birds, bono and edge, but within a few bars, both jump up – edge to grab bono’s gretsch, and bono, to horn in singing with trevi. “do you want to play the solo?” he yells over my shoulder, and then informs edge, “she’s going to play the solo.” dallas tells me later, in vegas, “i put you through the special solo sound!” and also says that before we even started playing, and perhaps the reason i was handed the explorer (which i believe no other fan has ever played!), is because edge said to him, “that girl can play guitar.” whether this was based on something visible or a possible memory of that other time four years ago, i do not know. but i am forever grateful.

Oh! So you did get it! I was getting worried tumblr ate it! I am so happy, and i've come for a second round. So, the Best friendo (!!!) That lives with the ut/uf brothers, with a twist! The Best Friend (*dramatic guitar solo*) is an artist and sometimes they randomly start drawing them, and when they look at their sketchbooks, they're full of drawimgs of them! When asked about this they would say "my friends are so great, i just had to draw them."- Please and thank you!

UT Sans;

Sans’ face was a dark blue the moment he managed to put two and two together. He would examine each drawing slowly, drinking in the way you managed to portray him on paper. His soul pulsed lightly in his chest, but he quickly ignored it and closed your sketchbook, favoring your privacy.

The next time you see him, he’ll casually slip a question about your sketchbook into conversation. He slides next to you as you smile and explain why. Your eyes showed nothing except honesty, which causes a small, shy smile to sprout onto his face.

“heh.” He ruffles your hair lightly, his eyelights a little brighter than before. “thanks, kid.”

UT Paps;

Papyrus nearly destroys the notebook in his excitement. He immediately abandons whatever he was doing to go and find you. When he does, he can’t help the words that leave his mouth. He’ll instantly bombard you with all different kinds of questions about your drawings and your art. When he finally calms down enough to let you speak, you explain why you drew him, a small, shy smile adorning your lips. Instantly, he brightens, the smile on his face one of the largest you’ve ever seen.

“DOES THIS MEAN I SHOULD DRAW YOU TOO?”

“Aw, Paps, you don’t gotta—”

“NONSENSE! THE GREAT PAPYRUS MUST DO SO IMMEDIATELY! LET US GO!”

Gimme more ideas or talk to me about other ideas pls love u guys

It’s 3 AM and I’m about to crawl into bed when I walk past my living room and see my cat at the end of the second floor bannister staring at something.

There’s a giant bug on the wall, some lovecraftian horror, but it’s on the part of the wall above the stairs, unreachable from the second floor. (I have a weird layout apartment; picture a second floor loft with a very tiny first floor landing.)

Anyway, I’m tired, and I want this to end quickly, but I can’t reach the bug and I can’t just go to sleep with this monster living in my house. So I grab a pillow from my couch and fling it at the wall above the stairs. Swing and a miss. The bug - which I’ve now learned has WINGS - flies from the stairwell to my living room and lands on the body of my acoustic guitar hanging from the wall.

That acoustic has a lot of sentimental value, but this nightmare creature has got to GO, so I grab a paper towel and approach the living room, ready to snuff my Fender out of existence along with this bug.

So I creep really close to my guitar when I realize the bug is not a palmetto or something gross, but a moth, and a beautiful one at that. It’s brown with these wild markings.

Any other kind of bug would be smashed, but for some reason I can’t bring myself to kill this moth, so I gently wrap the paper towel around it and cup it into my hand. In nothing but a pair of boxers and a plain white tee, I head down stairs, gently toting my new friend with me.

Out the front door I go, and of course my neighbor is walking her dog.

“Hey.”

“Hey.”

“Just releasing this moth I caught.”

“Very sweet of you.”

Time for the big reveal. I unfold the paper napkin and it’s not there. It’s gone. I held it so carefully for the short voyage from my guitar to the front door. Firm enough that the paper towel was sealed shut, but not firm enough to crush it, and it’s not there.

Neighbor gives me a polite nod and says goodnight, leaving me with the quiet terror of what just happened.

Where. Did. It. Go.

I give the paper towel one more shake even tough I know it’s not there and head back in. There is no moth in my apartment. My animals are acting fine again. I’ve checked everywhere, it’s not like the thing was hard to miss.

So, either some demon moth just visited my apartment from another dimension to toy with me, or a regular ole non-demonic moth just pulled off one hell of a houdini act and is waiting to crawl into my hair while I sleep.

Either way, the girl downstairs thinks I’m crazy. Rad.
