my favorite part of concerts is when the band plays a song everyone knows so everyone’s singing along all out of tune but then the singer stops singing and they point the mic at the crowd and u just hear everyone in the crowd singing the words to the music and u see the smiles on the band members’ faces bc they know people care about their music and everyone’s just so happy who cares about anything else
My favorite part about listening or watching live TOP concert videos is when the audience just knows when to sing. Tyler doesn’t tell them what lyrics are next, and he doesn’t prompt them to sing. He just subtly goes silent and the crowd carries it on because they know where the lyrics fit in around the music. They’re just so familiar with these songs from late nights in their rooms, or long car rides, or while making art, that they just know how they should sound.
And to hear it is one of the most powerful displays of unity I’ve ever experienced.
Yeah. Well. In case you didn’t know, this is one of the most beautiful piece of theatrical orchestrations ever to exist. Also, I’d like for this to be played at any (and all) of my major life events in the future, mkay.
My favorite part of Ghostbusters was when they were trying to find the ghost below the concert and Patty walks by the room of mannequins and says “Nope. That’s a room full of nightmares.” And just KEEPS ON WALKING. Like I have been waiting MY WHOLE LIFE for a character to be like “well fuck that” and just not fucking deal with it, like the ghost had to come and get her and she outran the bitch
Hello 😊 sooooo I've JUST recently gotten into SHINee ( honestly I've been wanting to get into SHINee for a while but I've just been lazy until now) so I'm new to the fandom--whooop! - So I was wondering, is there anything I should know about SHINee? Also could you recommend me anything SHINee related?
welcome to the fandom, sweetpea!
there’s a lot of history to tell from these past ten years, so I’ll give you a condensed version of things (there was this huge masterpost/introduction on shinee I was going to link but I can’t seem to find anywhere otl; I’ll keep searching for it, though); even more so because… I believe it’s easier, in fact, to learn about them slowly and steadily as you become more and more involved with them.
so, take all the time you need! it’s really more exciting to fall in love with the boys little by little tbh.
forget about the typical roles found in kpop groups: all five are vocals (and visuals). shinee as a whole is very different from currently active/3rd generation groups - even though they’ve been on the run for longer, they are still young, they always bring in new, exciting concepts and flawless performances and tend to be compared to rookies in what concerns their energy on stage; meaning, they work as hard and with as much enthusiasm as a group that just debuted.
taemin is very clumsy and has a habit of losing/breaking things by accident.(important: he hates bugs and I don’t say thislightly.) he’s very reserved and an introvert, but he loves his close friends and family dearly. usually more comfortable somewhere with food available. the personification of persistence and passion for what he does. also, he’s a soloist with three (Korean: Ace and Press It / Japanese: Sayonara Hitori) successful albums released. (you can find my - heavily biased - picks of favorite taem videos here.)
minho is everyone’s dream boy: acts, raps, sings, writes his own lyrics, is gorgeous and charming and athletic, always working hard to become a better version of himself and the sweetest being you’ll ever hear about. he’s tall and big and all, yes, but don’t fool yourself: he’s soft, affectionate, touchy and a Real sap 24/7. his dad pretty much adopted the other four. he starred on a movie titled ‘Derailed’ recently; on KBS’s Hwarang: The Beginning and a bunch of dramas you can find on a masterlist at the end of this post.
key is a hardworking, inspirational and real example of someone who’s been through a lot and has a lot to useful advice to share based on previous experiences (also, he’s the king of aesthetics). he knows where he stands and doesn’t take bullshit from anyone - that’s why he’s the one to quickly shut down any member who’s being Too Much during an interview/show/etc; which is funny, because key himself is full of energy and will like, do the most for as long as he can get away with it. he’s been featured in a bunch of musicals and took part in a duo, Toheart, back in 2014. solo projects include a collab song with Axodus and an ost with NCT’S Doyoung.
a guide on how much of a sweetheart is kim jonghyun- he’s a complex being with a heart much too big and we’re always learning something new about him. I think the best way to get to know him is through the blue night radio; as its dj, he often shares bits of himself you’ll learn to put together little by little and love as a whole. he’s a soloist, too, with two officially promoted albums (Base and She Is) and a self-composed compilation (Story Op.1) released.
onew is their strength, their main pillar; someone who doesn’t impose his views on the boys and who, in exchange, is extremely respected and loved by each of them (despite his dad jokes and bad puns - they adore him, I’m not even joking). no wonder he won leader of the year back in 2015. ah, yes - he’s a prime example of sunshine incarnate. (he acts, too! he was a rockstar on the musical Rock of Ages and a doctor on Descendants of the Sun.)
the boys are so genuine in themselves, to each other and to everyone else those who work with them are all about compliments and admiration
something I highly recommend checking on in terms of dancing and singing skills and the relationship between the members in general: their concerts. the first one I’ve ever watched was the SHINee World Concert III (which is still my favorite!) and if there’s anything that made me fall even harder for them, like… that was it. I can’t find link for all of them, sadly, but here you have the JAT, SWCIIand SWCIV in full and playlists for the BMU Tour, I’m Your Boy Tourand DxDxD Tour.
My favorite part of the concert in Anaheim on the 1st.
You can hear all the ARMY singing and can just see them all take a moment to take it all in.
It was absolutely magical being there in that moment.
I was feeling badly about not having done anything for @fiddleford-appreciation-month, so here, have a fairly obligatory Fidds playing his banjo. Let the record show that i legitimately like banjo music! (Sorry, Ford.)
So the story behind the shirt is that I wanted to do something special and extremely 70s, so this is based exactly on my favorite of John Denver’s shirts (worn in concert and thus on several posters.) And I do not say that lightly, because while I am pretty fond of 70s fashion, and while I love John Denver unironically, I can admit that most of his wardrobe was kind of a disaster. But this shirt is awesome, fight me.
“You think you’re going to pee because you drank all that sweet tea in less than ten minutes.”
“But I’m so sweet because of all the sweetness in my sweet tea, don’t you see my sweetheart?” You threw your body back against the passenger seat of Bucky’s car. You had your legs pulled up to your chest as you turned to look over at Bucky with a silly smile covering your face.
“Are you sweet though, are you really?” Bucky teased, taking his eyes away from the highway for only a second to look at you with a smirk.
“I am too sweet! I’m the sweetest gal in this whole wide universe.” You crossed your arms around your legs and shivered. You didn’t know why Bucky always kept the car so cold, you were wearing track shorts and a band tee.
“The universe is a very large place, doll.” Bucky rested one hand on the steering wheel and moved his spare arm to rest of the armrest lazily.
“I know.” The grin could be heard through your tone of voice. You waited only a couple of seconds before chipping up again. “Thank you for the concert tickets, by the way. I don’t know how I’ll beat your birthday present now.”
“You’ve wanted to see Ed Sheeran for a while now, at least now you’ll finally shut up about it.” You punched his arm lightly, knowing it wouldn’t hurt him either way. “I’m kidding, god you’re touchy.”
It was true, for the past few years all you’ve talked about is wanting to go see Ed Sheeran in concert. You had been to plenty of concerts before, but you had never seen him despite him being one of your top favorite artists. On your birthday Bucky surprised you with two tickets to his Divide Tour, and after the long wait you were finally going to his concert tonight.
“I love this song!” You got distracted from your previous conversation when Nancy Mulligan came on, you were playing your Spotify playlist dedicated to Ed on the way to the city the concert was being held at.
Bucky had barely opened the door to the hotel room before you were flying underneath his arm and skipping in the room at a fast speed. You dropped your suitcase by the bathroom door and instantly kicked off your shoes, leaving you in just your emoji socks.
By the time Bucky got fully into the room, with the door shut behind him, you were already standing on top of the queen sized bed like you owned the place. You had your hands on your hips as a silly grin plastered over your makeup free face. Bucky only grinned in return as he dropped his duffel next to yours, and mocked your stance.
“I’m so excited!” You jumped up and down on the bed several times. “I’m gonna breath the same air as him, can you believe it?! Ed’s my favorite person in the whole wide world, besides you of course, and honestly Ed Sheeran understands women more than women understand women.”
You kept rambling on and on, jumping on the bed like a young child with a grin covering your pretty features. Bucky watched in awe at how adorable you looked. Your hair was messy and your face was clear of makeup, although Bucky thought you looked like the most gorgeous girl with or without it. Your smile made his heart stop beating and your carefree actions made him fall even more in love with you.
Even though you weren’t his girl.
Bucky was your best friend, and he had been for a few years now. You were your complete and utter self around him. He had seen you at your worst and he had seen you at your best, yet loved you all the same. It’s like you didn’t even notice how much he loved you, nor did you notice every action you did made his breath get caught in his throat.
He had watched you fall in love, and he watched your heart break in half. He listened to your rants and never once complained. He went to family events that you honestly didn’t want to attend just to keep you company, he even pretended to be your boyfriend on several different occasions to get the judgmental sides of your family to shut up.
He once washed your hair when you were sick while you wore one of his shirts, he shaved your legs when you were too lazy and painted your nails when you were down. He knew to play with your hair at the end of a long day because it made you feel at ease, he knew you didn’t like milk in your cereal and hated food that looked remotely burnt.
He knew you were afraid of heights and the dark, so he reached for things up high and bought you a nightlight. He ran his fingers up and down your arm when you felt overwhelmed by anxiety to calm you down.
Everyone else saw that the best thing for you was standing right before your eyes, but you didn’t notice. You were too lost in your own little world to realize who you had with you all along.
Bucky snapped out of his daze when you hopped down from the bed and went straight for your suitcase, flipping it open and digging out everything you needed to get ready for the concert that was only in four hours.
“I’m going to get dolled up.” You called out over your shoulder before skipping excitedly towards the bathroom. He nodded in response, clearing his head to be back into reality.
What's something that you appreciate or love about Alycia that she may not know?
Oh this is a good but tough question.
And my favorite part is that she’s going to get a notification on her phone that I answered this question, she’ll read it, and then likely send me an “eye-roll” emoji via text because I’m being all mushy but she secretly loves it.
My favorite thing ever is sleeping next to her. We have completely opposite sleeping habits - She can fall asleep at any time, in any place, in any position - Standing up in the middle of a zombie apocalypse or a rock concert, no problem. I, on the other hand, have required prescription sleeping pills since I was 18 years old. This wouldn’t be an issue, except for the fact that she snores, all night long. She has horrific allergies to cats - which is ironic because she’s a veterinarian who takes care of cats all day. And she adopted two cats, who had serious medical issues as kittens, and lets them sleep on her face because they’re her children and they need snuggles. As a result, she has to sleep with breathe right strips on and tissues stuffed up her nose every night. You would think this would be disaster for us - that I would never sleep a minute because of her obnoxious snoring, nose blowing, and sniffling. And it was in the beginning. But now, there’s nothing better than coming home to find her in my bed at 2am. And while it’s typically impossible to wake her up from her comatose state, she wakes up every night for me to snuggle. And she’s always so warm when I’m in search for warmth. Although she would love it if we could sleep all snuggled up together, she knows how light I sleep. So she holds onto me until I roll over and then we doze off, with our feet touching usually with a dog on our pillows and a dog lodged between us with an intermittent visit from one of three cats. And it’s like she always belonged there. And now I feel like there’s a empty space when I don’t fall asleep to the sounds of her snores. It’s of the most content and peaceful feelings I’ve ever experienced. That’s one of many things that I appreciate and love about her.
A/N: *important* I originally received a request by anon, “When you lean in to kiss and both of you start laughing/can’t stop laughing”. There was no member specification for a prompt so I’ve included into a scenario I was going to post earlier :) Hope this is okay. thank you for reading♥
“Dongmin!” You called out, smiling brightly as you recognized his familiar figure coming out from the door.
He broke out into an equally bright smile as he spotted you, waving as he approached. “I can’t believe you actually came! Didn’t you have work today?”
You shook your head and looked down shyly, “I called and took a day off. I couldn’t miss your concert, especially since I got a VIP pass backstage.”
“Hey, it pays off when your best friend is Cha Eunwoo right?” Dongmin teased. “You, by the way, look beautiful tonight.”
“Me?” You replied in shock, surprised by the sudden compliment. “Thanks, I kinda just threw the outfit together since I was running a little late.. You look good today too, by the way.”
“Thanks, I made sure to look extra nice tonight just in case you showed up.” He said jokingly.
It was silent for a moment before he spoke again. “Hey, come with me for a second? I.. I have something to give you.”
