we are all songs in the end

Band (Part 3)

So, I guess you guys are enjoying these posts? Here’s another set of shenanigans that have occured.

- Band alum came back for a pep band game. I look up at the percussion section and notice he’s aggressively playing the Glock…. He plays baritone.

- We were playing Cupid Shuffle. (When we do this, the band director and several percussionist dance with her.) Well, my band director told us not to speed up because “she’s too old for this.” We did anyway. I look up at the end of the song and she just FALLS ON HER FACE. My director stands up and GLARES at the set player. She says, “I fell because I’m clumsy, but you sped up sooo much.”

- We had some incoming freshmen play with us at the game. The saxophones, low brass, and percussion were all roasting each other and all the potential newbies were confused. Cue the saxophonist dying laughing and my band director just slowly turning around. (Like this guy’s face was completely red. I’m pretty sure all the newbies think we are crazy.)

- For our concert we played a song called “A House Divided” (really relevant piece, I advise you listen to it). Well, at the end of the piece we sang “Let freedom ring” and slowly dropped our heads.

I kid you not, we were sitting onstage for half a minute in total silence. Nobody knew what the heck just happened.

- Band director: Umm, this pizza has been sitting out for 2 hours. You can have it if you want. I don’t know if it’s safe to eat though.

- So I was talking to my friend about something and my band director approached us.

Band director: Hey, can I show you guys something?

She showed us her Snapchat where her boyfriend was watching a bootlegged musical.

- Kenny: There’s a Snorlax somewhere!
Bass Clarinetist: Give it up, Kenny, it’s been half an hour.
Bass Clarinetist: GIVE IT UP.
Kenny: NEVER.

- During the jazz band portion of the concert a percussionist was passive agressivley played the bongos.

- So one of the trombonist was taking the podium through the theatre.

Me: Umm, you can take that through the gym.
Trombonist, as she approached the stairs: Now you tell me?
Me: You can still-
Trombonist: NO NO. I GOT THIS. *Struggles to get it down first step*

- There is a collection of little stuffed animals in a locker. There’s also two knights and an elephant in the band room. Nobody knows where the elephant came from.

- “You remember the SpongeBob ice cream sundae episode? Yeah, this piece needs to be as intense.”- Band director

- Director: Dress for the concert is BLACK. No red sequenced dresses… No fishnets….

- This happens every pep band game.

Announcer: The winning ticket is *Insert number here*
Band kid: THAT’S ME.
Announcer: I don’t believe you.

- That happened last pep band game, but the band alum came back.

Announcer: The winning number is *insert number here*
Band alum: *Pulling out white tickets* That’s me!
Announcer: I don’t believe you.
Clarinetist: *Pulling out blue tickets* What the heck?
Band alum: These tickets are like a year old.

Mind you, the announcer and the band are on separate sides of the gym. So, the band kid is just SCREAMING this.

- A band kid freaking out because he lost his DCI star from his rookie year of marching DCI. We looked literally everywhere for a solid five minutes…. It was in his instrument.

- Coach, screaming at his player: MARK!
Band, like the seagulls in Finding Nemo: Bork! Bork! Bork! Bork!

- We haven’t had a flautist in our band for a really long time. One of our newbies plays flute and one of the clarinetist found out we might have a flautist and she just SCREAMED. Poor girl freaked out.

- It’s been like 6 months, but I swear half the band is still obsessed with Pokemon Go.

I haven’t had band for a week, so I probably won’t have a part 4 for awhile.


This Is How You Spell, “HAHAHA We Destroyed the Hopes and Dreams of a Generation of Faux-Romantics”

This song is ostensibly about a relationship gone sideways but, really, it’s about people in the way I think most Los Campesinos! songs are about people and living and all those living experiences. Ash and I have different takes here, focusing on the life versus the death of it, but it all boils down to the experience in the end.

This is How You Spell “HAHAHA We Destroyed the Hopes and the Dreams of a Generation of Faux-Romantics” is, first of all, a very long song title, but also suggestive of the song itself. We’re in the early works of LC!, so the sounds are a little grittier, a little noisier, and – while I wouldn’t want to lie to you and say their music becomes more hopeful as time goes on – there’s that younger, rougher edge of cynicism to Hold On Now Youngster. This is how you spell / ha ha ha I’ve destroyed the hopes / and the dreams / of a generation of faux-romantics / and I am pleased / I am pleased.

It’s soft, though; the song and this album are a mix of rough and soft, trying so hard to not care about anything that you end up caring very much. It’s a breakup song filled with digs at the person being broken up with, but then the bridge comes and it’s evident that there was love there, once. I noticed the goosebumps on your arms / millions / and whether it’s because of the number of hours / spent laid face down on my bed listening to white noise / or, well, obviously it’s not / I somehow manage to translate them from Braille.

Of course, any tenderness is quickly cut off by the loud chorus and the biting refrain, but it’s there nevertheless. I listen to this song for the refrain all the time, bopping along to the rest of it and growing very quiet to listen closely to the quiet moment, relishing it. Not a lot about LC! is quiet in these early years, so you take what you can get.

Some days I listen to this song and really identify with the loudness, though. What right do you have to have nightmares about me / when all I wanted was to sleep? What right do you have to bring me into your problems when all I wanted was some peace and quiet? We were something once but we aren’t anymore so leave me alone.

Always, though, back to that moment of tenderness. We were something once.

We build sand castles
That washed away
I made you cry
When I walked away

We build sand castles
That washed away
I made you cry
When I walked away

His voice was harsh against your ears, leaving your eyes scrunched up and shoulders raised in an attempt to block it all out. “You promised me we wouldn’t end up like this! You promised me you would trust me!” 

Every promise don’t work out that way

You spent the night gathering up the few small pictures you had sitting around the house, the small polaroid from a party a year back catching you eye. You quickly snatched it and shoved it in your pocket, biting your lip. He wasn’t going to get this kind of response from you. That’s when you heard the crashing. 

Dishes smashed on my counter
From our last encounter
Pictures snatched out the frame 

“Y/N?” He whispers, standing in a pile of broken dishes, eyes red with tears, hands shaking in rage. 

“Get out,” You stay calm enough to maintain yourself. 

“But I just- I’m sorry, please, baby, please” He begs, and you cut him off. 


Bitch I scratched out your name
And your face
What is it about you?
That I can’t erase baby

His sweater still hung by the front door and a picture still stood of him hugging you. You quickly grabbed the frame, smashing on the ground and hanging your head in defeat. His attempts to break down your walls won- and now he was gone. 

You sob softly and reach for the picture, gently stroking his face on the smooth paper. A small piece of glass scratched the photo and you can’t help but smile lightly. Perhaps now you could erase the pain you were feeling. 

Requests are open! Stop by my ask and send anything you’d like! 

deoxys-official  asked:

Idea: Bill regrets having destroyed his own dimension and the chaos he's creating is an attempt to make this new dimension feel more like home

I really like this idea! Personally, I think it’s something else because he talks about his dimension being like Flatland, which is very strictly regulated. And that sexuality is determined by paperwork. 

But he said he liberated his dimension. The line “I’m just a triangle trying to save you, from the delusions society gave you” from the scrapped song also support this. But, he ended up killing everybody. And the poem says “Misses home and can’t return.”

So, what if Weirdmageddon was a second try? He couldn’t succeed at freeing everyone from his own home, so maybe he can try freeing everyone from this dimension? It could be him trying to prove to himself that he didn’t do anything wrong, that he can stop being homesick because now he has this better place!

But we all know how that goes. Blame the arson for the fire and all that.

‘I don’t get why the mermaid-’

‘Mer-person, Rans, we’ve been over this.’

‘Why the mer-person won’t leave the Captain’s side. We helped free him from the nets too!’

‘Brah, think for a moment. That mer-person has never seen a butt before, and now they’re confronted to the beauty of our Captain’s glorious assets. Usually it’s the sailors who, following the siren’s songs, drown to their deaths. Now, well, the position is reversed, I guess?’

‘… because our Captain has a great butt.’

‘The greatest on all sever seas!’

(you know when it’s midnight and you end up spending way too long on what was supposed to be a quick sketch of a stupid idea…)

You know after everything we’ve seen so far, it got me thinking, how Victor’s FS Program, “Stay Close to me” might be foreshadowing a possible ending, my total guess here, but just listen to the last few verses of the song. It’s like Victor’s narrating his final feelings for Yuuri. Feelings he’s got the chance to understand not only after the banquet night, but after all those 8 months spend together.

“Stay close to me
Don’t go
I’m afraid of losing you

Your hands, your legs
My hands, my legs
The heartbeats
Are fusing together

Let’s leave together
Now I’m ready”

Victor is ready to leave, he’s ready to retire, but he wants Yuuri to be willing to become part of this new future. And you get Victor’s afraid, afraid of losing that one precious thing he’s manage to find. “Stay close to me. Don’t go. I’m afraid of losing you.” And this is something which can be interpreted from both Yuuri’s and Victor’s perspectives, they share the same fears, and at the end they want the same thing. “Let’s leave together. Now I’m ready.” It presents this idea of the start of a new life, the start of a new beginning, which they are no longer afraid to face, they see things clear now.

And we know about the duet version of “Stay Close to me”, meaning the song might be telling a story, since they met and now after 8 months the song can finally come to an end, with both men standing side by side. The series starts with this song being an individual routine, while at the end it changes itself into a duet. Them standing together has change the complete sense of the song, it’s like the verses are adding up and the gears are starting to fit. Their time together and what they plan on doing for their rest of their lives is sum up in those two lines of the final verse. Their heartbeats are now one, they stand together, now they are ready.

Ten years from now I don’t want to tell the story of how I lost the boy of my dreams because I was too afraid to try. No, that’s not my story. This is my story.

I love you. Or at least I like you a lot. I don’t know how it works because I’ve never felt anything this strong before. That might sound crazy but it’s true. You are constantly in my head, like this annoying song stuck on repeat and you try to get it out of there but you can’t. And when we’re together I am insanely happy. And I say insanely because it’s just so much happiness that it almost drives me insane thinking about it. You are goofy and handsome and smart and incredible and so beautiful. Just all of you, in every way, is beautiful.

So maybe my story won’t end with you and me being together. Maybe we won’t ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after. But now I know I’ve tried. My story may not be perfect but at least I know that I wrote it, I didn’t let it write me.
—  Story time.

This is a personal interpretation but during the ring scene, we can hear a choir song called “Rocking Carol” and I don’t know but the lyrics had some meanings to me.

We will rock you, rock you, rock you
We will serve you all we can
Darling, darling little man

It’s like an echo of their wishes, to cheerish the other and stay together.
Also since the episode was in Viktor’s pov, I see it also like it could be Viktor’s deep desire, to keep “serving” Yuuri until the end ;v;


Okay so growing up we had things we would say after every lyric of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and the last one was “You’ll go down in history (like George Washington)” and I need to know if this is something that only kids in the US do and if not then what did you all say at the end of the song because it probably wasn’t a reference to America’s First President

during my ers show, there was this guy in front of me that knew all the lyrics to all the songs by heart even though he didn’t speak english and sometimes he’d turn around and we’d yell the lyrics together even though we’re complete strangers, and he tried to tell tyler how he saved his life. during goner he turned around and just gave me and my friend this fpe sign to hold up and all of us were crying by the end of trees and i still don’t know his name but i love him with all my heart and this. this is what a twenty one pilots show is. being together. being friends, being family even though it’s our first time meeting. this is what the clique is. that guy made the show, and I hope he knows it.

i love how in the singalongs when the song is clearly about some girl whichever beatle who wrote it liked at the time but they always tried to make it just involve the four beatles 

and we end up with like these confusing romances between ringo and paul 

they try to make it like a little story based on the song title but the lyrics just work against it 

anonymous asked:

First kiss story?

The “first” was an accident, so I don’t really know how much it counts. My godsister secretly invited her best friend over after midnight - we’d just turned 13 and were ready to be edgy and rebellious teenagers who did things like that.

The friend climbed through the basement window. She had neon blue hair, a leather jacket, fishnet tights, spiked combat boots, and knew every Bob Dylan song by heart. I was attracted to her in the way that square nerds are often attracted to unapologetic punks, but I wasn’t sure that I actually liked her very much.

We all hung out in the dark for a couple of hours, watching Beetlejuice or something. My godsister and her friend ended up talking about how they kissed each other occasionally and how that was normal, girls sometimes make out with each other, it was pretty punk-rock. The friend asked me if I’d ever kissed anyone and my godsister laughed kind of meanly at the suggestion. I was embarrassed and got pretty sulky.

We finished the movie, or turned it off, and kind of awkwardly admitted that we were all too tired to stay up any later. I’m not sure how it happened, but I turned my head and my lips connected with the friends’ - I yelped in surprise, right into her mouth, and it made a horrible gross sucking noise as I jumped away.

We never spoke of it again.

Yes, I’ll explain this Catalan Christmas tradition every year

The Tió de Nadal is a pre-Christian tradition that basically consists on a log that   poops presents for children on Christmas. The log has a face drawn, wears a barretina (the traditional Catalan hat), and is covered by a blanket so that he doesn’t get cold.

We place him in a visible place, such as the living room (if it’s close to a fireplace better), at the beginning of December, and children leave food (usually fruit peels, nuts…) to feed him.

Then, on Christmas Day (or, for some families, Christmas Eve), children hit him with long sticks while singing a song that asks him to give them presents. At the end of the song, the blanket is removed, and it reveals all the presents that were hidden under it, representing that he “pooped” them.

And it doesn’t seem weird to us until we have to explain it to a foreigner.

  • Burnout: that one song everybody likes because of the drum solo
  • Having A Blast: amazing bridge, and also suicide bombing yay
  • Chump: jealousy for the win, and half of the song is instrumental
  • Welcome To Paradise: now entering oakland, california. spooky sounds from kerplunk not included.
  • Pulling Teeth: domestic abuse by women against men PSA
  • Basket Case: everybody has the time to listen to him whine
  • She: this was a response to a feminist poem...?
  • Sassafras Roots: wasting precious time
  • When I Come Around: the solo cover art has a pumpkin man on it
  • Coming Clean: bisexual in 1994
  • Emenius Sleepus: what the fuck, my old friend turned into a jackass
  • In The End: dumb parents
  • F.O.D.: fuck off and die, that one person we all hate
  • All By Myself: ayy lmao tré is messing around, creating a "mess" if you know what I mean
Something about Reaper’s Mariachi skin that came to mind today!

My dad, who is Mexican, once took me to an authentic Mexican seafood restaurant that had a mariachi band play a song for someone who was having a birthday. At the end of their song, I decided to clap, but nobody else was clapping with me and I got a little embarrassed. My dad told me that you’re not supposed to clap after a mariachi performance to begin with.

What was Reaper’s primary motivation and flaw? Envy due to a lack of attention. He did a lot of things for Overwatch but his friend we know as Soldier 76 got all the glory, all the time. Nothing he did, other than the evil things, ever got him the attention he felt he deserved. 

I feel like with this in mind, giving him a skin for a profession where you perform with no applause at the end seems incredibly fitting.
