The day before Mania’s launch, Victor and I mused about what would be a good song to cover next… *duh!* We HAD to tackle this one!
The original song, “Time Trials,” was composed by Hyper Potions for Sonic Mania, then given killer lyrics by Skye Rocket as the fansong-turned-official-cover “Mania!” Check out that WAY PAST COOL original mix by Hyper Potions, Skye Rocket, and DJ Cutman here!
So I know that a great thing is seeing some representation of yo self in media, so here’s a masterlist of songs with lgbt+ themes.

So there’s this thing I want to share with you that happened at cologne… 😍 As some of you may know two dear friend of mine and I got to see the Killers on Friday. We queued and got right in front of the keyboard stand at the barrier 🙌🏻
I had the shirt on that you can see in my profile picture that says “darlin’” and when The Way It Was began to play I tucked at the end of the letters for Brandon to see as he looked our way and he did and smiled. That alone would’ve been enough, mission achieved 😍😄 But when the first darlin’ of the song came to sing he did it… and straight afterwards he pointed at me. My heart! 😱 The girls around me started screaming and I don’t think I’ll ever get over it 🙈😅 It can be seen in the video above which is from the lovely girl that was standing behind me :) I recorded it myself but as my heart went nuts with the pointing I didn’t hold the camera still so you can see it better in her video and it’s kind of the same angle. Anyways, I thought I’d share 😍
can do any genre, from action to romcom to horror to tragedy
has his own fanclub and his fans are called yutavers (yuta + lovers)
is like the nicest celebrity to ever grace the planet is always replying to people on twitter and posting selfies and making videos and trying to accept as many letters and gifts as he can (even though the company keeps telling him he can’t do that)
his kissing scene in a movie went viral because apparently some of his fans fainted watching it because yuta is ,,,,,,,, a killer,,,,,,,kisser. a killer kisser that’s what i meant
but as much as he loves to give back and be kind people can take it too far
and so that’s why he has you, his personal bodyguard
and you try to keep it all serious, no fun stuff at all times because that’s what professionals do
but it’s hard to keep a straight face when you’re going over his schedule in the morning and yuta comes out wearing a face mask, apple hair, and his one piece pajamas
like,,,,,,,,he’s world famous. people literally think he’s a God and here he is
in his t-shirt with luffy’s face on it asking you if he can just have ice-cream for breakfast and showing you his town that he just started in animal crossing
and you’re,,,,,,like it’s impossible to not grow fond of yuta. with his shining smile and his sense of humor and like
it makes you really want to protect him, not just because of your job but because there are people who want to hurt him for real and that pisses you off
which is why when you end up threatening to break someones neck after they shout something obscene at yuta,,,,,,,,yuta is like pulling you back by the shoulders and he’s like
“it’s ok, words don’t hurt me.” and you’re like,,,,,,,,,,i know but,,,,,,
and you know you overreacted and you’re embarrassed for the rest of the day until you’re alone with him in the car
and yuta suddenly nudges you and he’s like
“im not gonna lie though, seeing you get worked up,,,,,,you’ve got a very sexy angry stare”
and you flame up with embarrassment and you’re like ,,,,s,,,,se,,,,sexY??? and yuta is like “i fell hard for you in that moment.”
and you make a face and you’re like “stop joking,,,,,”
but he just shrugs and is like “i already like you a lot and im good at hiding, but wow in that moment i wanted to kiss you.”
and it’s silent until you look over and you’re like ,,,,,, “really?’
and yuta turns to you and smiles and he’s like “really”
you: driver roll up the partition.
yuta: also put on some loud music
long story short you’re making out with yuta in the backseat of his expensive car,,,,,,,,,,,
he comes out with messy hair and his manager is like “what happened?” and yuta’s like “it was a bumpy ride here”
I have a question! In your video about Killer!Sans, I absolutely loved the frame with Sans holding the knife, looking pretty damn crazy and about to attack. It looked awesome! (The rest was just as amazing but that one frame gave me feels, heh) So I wanted to ask, do you still have that picture, but without the text covering it?
yes i have it :3 i want to upload some of my favorite pics from the video tho, but until then here :D

I think I broke my zipper? | The Music of Harvey Beaks
In the episode “Rock Bark Rocks” Harvey attends his first rock concert and accidentally finds himself caught in a mosh pit. This short chaotic scene reminded me of myself during my first punk shows as a teenager in Los Angeles (It was The Ramones, The Damned, and The Dickies on separate occasions at the Hollywood Palladium). There is a certain level of character building that can only come from getting kicked in the head to your favorite music– and a sense of hope that can only come from falling on your ass in a mosh pit… only to be rescued by a swarm of disembodied hands reaching down to pick you up.
I thought to myself, “Why can’t Harvey be stuck in the pit while one of my favorite punk bands is playing?” So I reached out to singer of the seminal Los Angeles punk band, The Dickies (The inimitable Leonard Graves Phillips) and asked if he wouldn’t mind singing on a 30-second song I wrote. I sent him the instrumental music and waited. A few days later I get a 5am text from Leonard with the following lyrics:
I got OCD. Don’t you pick on me. Zipper. I think I broke my zipper.
I’m not one to argue with genius. I’ve admired Leonard since I was a kid. I told him it was perfect and a week later he was in my studio recording these very words. I just love that he sat there listening to my song and these were the lyrics that popped in his head. Life is absurd. I love how it came out and so honored to have this tiny connection to my favorite wobbly-voiced musician. Incidentally, this song is far from featured in the episode, it goes by very quickly and it’s low in the mix, but that’s why I put these videos up with the full volume mixes.
THE DICKIES formed in 1977 and are one of the greatest melodic punk bands of all time. Truly underrated, although they did have some much deserved success with the cult film “Killer Klowns from Outer space” and most recently, on the soundtrack to “KICK ASS” with their Banana Splits anthem. Enjoy! -Ego
You sang and danced around the room when Loki silently opened the door. He held a camera in his hand. As you twirled around the room and yelled the lyrics of a song you played way too much, you caught your boyfriend.
“Loki!” you laughed. He walked up to you and kissed you with the camera facing the both of you.
“What? I can’t appreciate my (s/o)’s killer dance moves?” he remarked. He panned the camera towards you to capture your signature eye roll.
“Go so I can sing again.” you pointed to the door. You cocked his eyebrow up.
“Seriously?” he asked. You nodded. “Alright. I’ll prepare dinner, my love.” You smiled and went back to singing.
After 10 minutes, he arrived at your door again. You spotted him and laughed.
“Go away!” you giggled out. He hugged you and let out a chuckle.
“Supper is ready.” he told you.
The video ended. Loki sat at the edge of the bed, crying quietly in his hands. Tony leaned on the doorway.
“You okay, big guy?” he asked. Loki was silent. He lifted his head up and spoke.
real talk… this music video blends comedy into five different upsetting backstories so well. like, we can empathize and feel bad for all the characters but also step back and laugh at it a little bit. and i think the video does a beautiful job completely making fun of “what it takes to be a man” by following different characters who care so much about their masculinity and their pride that it eventually leads to their downfall. part of the reason that’s so special is because if you’re just an average listener and don’t know brandon’s intentions behind the song, it can certainly come off as arrogant. but everything about the video completely goes against that
