daft punk discography appreciation: Random Access Memories (5/5)
released: May 17th, 2013
“The idea was really having this desire for live drums, as well as questioning, really, why and what is the magic in samples? Why for the last 20 years have producers and musicians been extracting these little snippets of audio from vinyl records? What kind of magic did it contain? Because harmonically the samples are just an F minor or a G flat, something not so special. It occurred to us it’s probably a collection of so many different parameters; of amazing performances, the studio, the place it was recorded, the performers, the craft, the hardware, recording engineers, mixing engineers, the whole production process of these records that took a lot of effort and time to make back then. It was not an easy task, but took a certain craftsmanship somehow cultivated at the time. ” - Thomas Bangalter [x]

Normani Kordei Comes Back Strong in Night 1 of 'DWTS' Finale After Powering Though Painful Ankle Injury

If you didn’t know Normani Kordei had injured her ankle during rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars, you wouldn’t have been able to tell based on her amazing performances on Monday’s first night of the Season 24 finals.

Before their first dance of the night, a pre-taped package addressed Kordei’s ankle injury, which occurred when she was practicing a toe-touch in the dance studio with her pro-partner Val Chmerkovskiy.

“All of my body weight came down on it and it really hurt,” the singer recalled.

“I just feel terrible. This is a week that’s already really intense and she’s never gonna admit that she’s hurt,” Chmerkovskiy told the DWTS cameras in a solo interview.

However, when it came time to dance, the Fifth Harmony singer was all smiles as she and Chmerkovskiy delivered a seriously skillful quickstep set to “Check It Out” by Oh The Larceny, and her footwork was as on-point as ever.

“I don’t think your ankle knew it was hurt,” host Tom Bergeron quipped as the couple finished their performance.

Kordei stunned in a skin-tight black bodysuit while Chmerkovskiy bared his chest with an unbuttoned black shirt. However, despite how amazing both dancers looked, some of the judges felt the bodysuit made a few of the dancers’ mistakes all the more obvious.

“One thing that kind of threw me off a little bit is that you didn’t have your skirt, and so it was very vulnerable for you, so sometimes I did see lack of body contact,” Julianne Hough explained. “And because [we] have such high expectations of you, I definitely saw [mistakes].”

Judge Len Goodman, who has been one of Kordei’s toughest judges, agreed with Hough, adding, “I like the catsuit, you look great in it, [but] costumes are a bit like makeup – they can cover up a lot of mistakes and blemishes,” and that the outfit allowed the judges to see some of the minor flaws.

While Goodman and Hough awarded the couple nines, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba had nothing but praise for the pair and gave them 10s for a total score of 38 out of 40.

For their second dance, a freestyle routine set to “What the World Needs Now Is Love” by Andra Day, Kordei and Chmerkovskiy delivered a heartfelt performance dressed to the nines, with the singer rocking a flowing white, semi-sheer gown, while her partner looked like a million bucks in a crisp white tux.

As they danced, the couple was joined by a pair of pre-teen performers dressed like their adorable doppelgangers, and the touching routine was as sweet as could be.

“Thank you guys for giving me my light. I just wanted to say that to every person in here,” Kordei said as she tried to catch her breath after the dance. “I feel like I’m a different person walking out than when I came in.”

While the couple came just short of a perfect score for their first dance, they made up ground with their freestyle, and walked around with four 10s for a combined score of 78 out of 80 for the night.

Kordei, Jennings and Ross will continue battle it out for the coveted Mirrorball trophy in the second night of the Dancing With the Stars finale on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

Everyone is complaining, that Val didn't give Normani an amazing freestyle. And I completely disagree. It would have been easy for him to go all out and do an amazing production for her as we all know she can dance and perform. What was amazing about her freestyle was that it suited their journey together and showed her vulnerable side. If anything it was a sentimental freestyle. Lool sorry really had to get that off my chest !

You get it!!!

Do you have any tips for those who start experiencing high anxiety and depression in college to the point that it affects their ability to function and perform well in school and in their personal life?

I have a ton of experience with this! My first semester of college was when I was formally diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder and Depression! After an absolutely awful first semester, my advisors and professors suggested that I take advantage of my school’s mental health resources. Going to see a professional that works with ONLY students was amazing and since my ability to function and perform was affected by what I was struggling with, I was able to get accommodations that made being a great student soooo much easier. 

Look into your school’s resources and get support directly from your institution. The mental health department in your student center may be able to intercede on your behalf with your professors.
