this song is so good actually

anonymous asked:

Preparing for the worst since it's basically a fandom habit by now. Things are definitely changing, but babygate is still going on. Louis is still with a shitty team. When we actually hear from Harry in his songs and interviews it will hopefully assuage some fears, but I think people are just tired. I saw a lot of confusion & exhaustion on Saturday after the excitement died down. So yes, I am hoping things will get better but at this point I honestly have no clue what to expect.

The good news is that we have a timeline for seeing changes now. We have new music on April 7. We have SNL on April 14. We have Niall back on the radio festival circuit. We have new music coming from Louis with Bebe Rexha (hopefully) and Digital Farm Animals (probably).  And hopefully good things are coming from Liam too (fingers crossed!)

I choose to look on the bright side. I see a light getting closer and I think it’s the end of this long fucking tunnel, not a train. Maybe I’m wrong, but while I’m waiting, I’d rather enjoy my time here.

Ok this has probably been said before but I just did the math and when Marni died Luigi was 20, Pavi was 15 and Amber was 7... so they definitely remember her... Am I the only one who thinks about this?

Yeah, from the sound of it when they sing ‘Who ordered Pizza’ and ‘Night Surgeon’ I agree that the siblings know who Marni was and what Nathan did … and during the opera Luigi and Pavi are even the ones singing “Did you know he killed your mother?” to Shilo. Maybe that’s also the reason they are hating on Nathan during the movie, because they had a good relationship to Marni. It seems no one but Rotti (and at least one Gentern and his henchwomen of course) know that actually HE was the one responsible for Marni’s death. And it’s never mentioned again after Rotti’s ‘confession’ in his song.

But the three are also really narcissistic and self-centered characters, so maybe they just didn’t really care about what this actually did to Rotti? Even though they seem a little worried in the end when Rotti is about to die, I don’t think any of them was really trying to help him sort his feelings out, and the rest of the time they only worry about who’s going to inherit GeneCo when Rotti dies.

Or maybe they did try and Rotti just pushed them away as we know he does.

And then their relationship to Marni … there are so many possibilities :D Like

- did they like her for she was kind of a mother-figure? I could imagine Marni being like this, don’t ask me why (oh just imagine little Amber sitting on Marni’s lap and cuddling, or Marni picking out clothes with Pavi, or Marni trying to help Luigi handle his temper even …)

- did she try to better the relationship between the children and their father (in case it’s always been a little tense? For all we know Rotti could’ve changed after the ‘betrayal’ though I doubt he ever was the ‘loving father’-type. And don’t get me started on the question WHO TF IS THE MOTHER OF THE SIBLINGS?!?!)

There are so many possibilities how the characters used to be in the past, but I’ll stop here before this gets out of hand xD If anyone is interested in more of my headcanons, go ahead and ask ^^ 

So in conclusion: Believe me, you’re not the only one thinking about it :’D

so I know we talk about music sometimes and all but I got one!!! pursuit of happiness by kid cudi reminds me a bit of shiro? little angsty and ooc tho hah

pffft what do you mean “"ooc”“? if shiro can’t carry a beat then honestly what’s the point

and this song actually so chill, i can’t believe i’ve never heard of it before? i think the lyrics definitely fit shiro, it’s got just enough angst to remind you its there but enough “ehhh its all good” to shift the focus. like for all his angst potential, shiro as a character isnt that outwardly expressive of his feelings

im taking this to a whole different genre: “east” by sleeping at last. it’s soft and sad and deals with loss of innocence and the “fall of a king”. and it shows just how much more potential shiro has to grow and recover.

Do you ever just suddenly feel really shitty because you’re not particularly good at anything and you don’t know what you wanna do with your life and like you didn’t ask to be born and have to deal with all of this and yet here you are, confused and anxious and paying to exist on this trash planet

Do you see how disposable girl groups are? Do you see now why it’s so important to stan girl groups. A boy group comes out with one good song and they gain a whole fandom, a girl group has 3 popular songs within a year and people listen to them religiously but don’t actually support them and it’s bs. Stan girl groups. Support their cute concepts. Get hype over their sexy concepts. Don’t assume everything they do is for attention. Don’t declare war on them for looking at a male idol. GIRLS NEED TO SUPPORT GIRLS EVERYWHERE

I don’t think people realize what rare and beautiful gifts really good full AMVs are.

Like… that’s hard. Really, really hard.

Something I’ve learned is that the longer you’ve been editing, the more time it takes to make an edit, which is probably the reason AMVs can take literal months to make, and most vidders usually cut the songs down and/or make short edits.

To keep up consistently good timing, clip choice, pacing, transitions, effects, and possibly even masking or typography over give or take three and a half minutes of song is a huge challenge.

It’s generally considered to take three hours to edit one minute of a movie. Apply that here, and we have it taking about nine hours for a fairly short AMV… and given that we don’t get paid to make these, and have to wrestle with hitting every single beat of the song, it can take much longer.

And we also have to keep our motivation up, find time to edit, not grow to detest the song, and struggle with technical difficulties. All of that is really grating.

I’ve been editing for a couple months over a year now, and, while I started out making almost exclusively full AMVs, I can’t do that anymore. I’ve improved a lot, and by this point, using the whole song is intimidating and requires a level of dedication that I could not possibly achieve every time I edit.

It’s been literally a year since the last time I’ve edited a full-length song that I didn’t trim.

So if you find an awesome full AMV, appreciate it! Tell the vidder that you love it!

I’m honestly just so in awe of AMVs and the people who edit them. Vidders are really badass.

Cherish them and their work.

Nirvana-Verse Chorus Verse

This is simply one of the best lines Kurt have ever written. It’s beautiful, emotional and deep and I personally think that it has something to do with his break up with Tobi Vail. I think this is one of the moments when Kurt looks so vulnerable and so fragile and that makes me admire him actually because he managed to turn his sadness into such beautiful work.

Well, as he said before :                                                                                       “Thanks for the tragedy, I need it for my art”

Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets vs Swan Song 

//YES THAT’S RIGHT I BROUGHT S5 SAMIFER INTO ALL THIS ANGEL TALK. just let me be happy here on my hill of salt.//

whalien 52. so beautiful it’s about a whale a goddamn whale and the thing is it’s a true story??? and when you think about it a whale in the bottom of the ocean calling out desperately for someone to hear him but no one can and that was like?? the best metaphor/allusion ive ever heard for loneliness and it sounds so good “lonely lonely lonely whale” and the lyrics are all so subtle and they all relate to the whale but it also relates to their lives and the lyrics are written so beautifully and poetically and yet it’s so simple and the instrumental sounds so good + the really high pitched sad “wailing” ish thing which actually relates to the song and you can feel!!!! the hopelessness and the loneliness and the adolescent angst but it’s not explosive or whiny or anything like that it’s just quiet and sorrowful and wistful and lonely and it’S SO GOOD

Things people who refuse to watch FMA 03 are missing out on, as chosen by someone who actually thinks 03 is terrible and swears by the manga:

  • The music. God, it was all so good! The OST, the openings, everything. Especially l’Arc~en~Ciel, the band which did the most songs for FMA out of any artist (with a total of 4), but only one of which was used outside of 03 (Good Luck My Way from Sacred Star of Milos).
  • Bratja deserves a special mention of its own. Bratja was a song from the OST originally in Russian, sung from the perspective of the brothers. A fan made an incredibly beautiful and poetic set of English lyrics, which quickly spread through the fandom and were even sung by Vic Mignogna, Ed’s English voice actor.
  • A lot of old fandom memes, such as “I love dogs”, “Tiny miniskirts”, “Colonel Mustang is dead sexy”, short rants, etc. Basically the precursors to the Flame Alchemist rap, in a way.
  • The origin of a lot of fandom tropes and ships. Like regardless of whether or not you like them, I think it’s important to understand where these things come from and why. R/oy/Ed, Ed/vy, El/rice/st, Pride!Ed, Envy’s popularity in general, Ed’s birthday, “real world counterparts”, and brown hair Al all have their roots in 03. It’s also the biggest reason for Hohenheim hate; 03 Hohenheim was an absolutely terrible person, and since he wasn’t shown to be a good person right away in Mangahood, a lot of us had a deep-seated mistrust of him.
  • Reole/Liore residents had dark skin!
  • More development for the Ishvalans, including actual names for some of them, and an entire episode about Al bonding with a pair of young Ishvalan boys who hold misplaced resentment for their dead mother. Ever wonder why that one kid who saved Scar from the sewer is sometimes called Rick? 03 is why.
  • The Tringham brothers! There’s an episode (very loosely based off one of the light novels) where Ed and Al encounter a pair of alchemists about their age using their identities to do some… less than responsible research. Fletcher is my son.
  • Aaron Dismuke, Al’s original dub voice actor. He was fantastic, but he was also an Actual Prepubescent Boy who hit puberty just after the series finished, hence the recast for Brotherhood. Aaron returns in Brotherhood as the voice of young Hohenheim.
  • A lot more comedy. While the manga was full of funny scenes, Brotherhood cut out the majority of them. 03 had a lot more jokes, including episodes 13 and 37, which were fucking hysterical.
  • Adaptations (albeit not the best) or some bonus content from the manga, such as extra chapters and one of the light novels, as well as a lot of early chapters that Brotherhood left out. Meaning Youswell actually gets an episode!
  • A lot of early “villain of the day” type episodes, which although weird and nonsensical, were a lot of fun and are great if you feel like watching FMA but don’t want to jump in at the middle of the plot or rewatch Reole for the gazillionth time.
  • I’m going to be completely honest with you, as an Al fan who’s very picky about visuals, Al’s armor looked way better in 03 than it does in Brotherhood. (Aside from the inconsistencies with his eye color.)
  • Winry and Sheska’s alien witch hunt. No, I’m not making that up.
I think people should learn more about what they are listening to. They need/should actually HEAR what they are listening to every day. People generally listen to music because it “sounds” good. Not many people listen to songs for the lyrics. I think that people should, the band took the time to write the song, not just the instrumental part, but the lyric part to. I hear people say things like “Yeah that band rules” or “I love that band their music is so cool!” and they can’t even understand what the group is actually talking about. Songs from bands like RAMMSTEIN, KMFDM, NIN, M.M., and more popular ones like the bands played a lot on the radio. People could at least hop on the web and look at the song lyrics or find an English translation so they know what the band is saying, or maybe ask someone who is a big fan and who knows what the band is saying. It’s not that hard, and I think it will cut down on a lot of the people in this society that are shallow and naïve who just look at the front cover of a book, and not the pages… to twist around that quote a little.

Headcanon: Welcome to Night Vale characters on karaoke night

Cecil

  • Song: Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley
  • Unironically enjoys it
  • Stumbles a few times, but Carlos gives him a thumbs-up and he keeps going
  • Maybe a little too confident in his musical abilities; Carlos’s constant praise doesn’t help
Carlos
  • Song: The Calculation by Regina Spektor
  • Throws loving glances to Cecil every five seconds
  • Extremely flattered when Cecil praises his singing (“Aw, I’m not *that* good, Ceec…”)
  • Never realizes he actually has an amazing singing voice

  • It’s possible the Erikas provide amplification, but nobody knows for sure because everyone looks pointedly away from them for the entire song
Hooded Figures
  • Song: Revolution 9 by The Beatles
  • The whole production is rather awkward because the entire group falls silent and stares deliberately at anything other than the hooded figures
  • Nobody’s sure how they made the sounds needed, and nobody wants to know
  • After the song ends, the group sits there in silence for another five minutes before someone looks up to find a charred circle on the stage and no trace of the figures
  • Intern Kareem excuses himself, citing a need to lie down
Steve Carlsberg
  • Song: Chandelier by Sia
  • Manages to ignore Cecil’s constant muttered criticisms
  • Everyone is extremely impressed by his range- no octave dropping for this man
  • Cecil actually rather enjoyed it but would rather die than tell him
