couplets for the venus signs

aries venus: looking into your eyes is like lighting a match, and I feel like I belong. And if this feeling isn’t right I would happily die wrong.

taurus venus: you said every passing moment in this transient world is marvelous and I agree, every moment that I’m with you I feel free.

gemini venus: the sound of papers rustle and the memory of you makes me smile. the bass in your car is a fleeting memory, I wish you’d stay a while.

cancer venus: I can smell the scent of your skin on mine, I’m still warm from when we cuddled. I blurted I loved you and you looked at me and whispered “you’re in trouble”

leo venus: my hands tangling in your curls, your hands tangling in my shirt. my hands creeping up your lap, your hands trailing up my skirt.

virgo venus: I can see the words you wrote in the mirror from the mist. “I’m sorry, I should’ve given you one last kiss.”

libra venus: like two doves, we transcended, together & inseparable, but no one but god could ever prevent the inevitable.

scorpio venus: your breath is on my neck, you’ve opened my doors and made a room in me, your love is potent and dangerously consuming me.

sagittarius venus: i wanted you with me but i was tying you down, you left me but you’re able to spread your wings now.

capricorn venus: your cheeks were flushed your voice was hushed and the atmosphere was blue, you turned around, looked down and said “I’m madly in love with you”

aquarius venus: “darling,” you said, and bit my ear, “I want to feel your touch, you fill the void, but even filled, it’s never quite enough”

pisces venus: you taught me to let the waves in my ocean of dreams let me drift away, you told me that home is where my heart wants to stay.

lololypopy  asked:

So many people are fighting for these lyrics interpretations 😥😥😥

1. Context is important in songs. “Olivia” wasn’t just about a girl. “Hey Angel” wasn’t a conventional love ballad. Music is, first of all, music. It is ABOUT music, refers back to music that has established a presence in its genre, shows what Harold Bloom called the “anxiety of influence.” “Olivia” is ABOUT love as much as it is ABOUT “Penny Lane.” “Hey Angel” is evoking obsessive love as much as it is an homage to “Bittersweet Symphony.” Honesty in music means an integrity to the truth of the music, and a smart understanding of it– of what music is trying to say, and how songs are linked. This is especially important for Harry, whose debut album is supposed to be heavily influenced by his understanding of rock ‘n roll. For instance, imho, the bass riff in “Ever Since New York” quoted from “Baby Blue” is intentional. By evoking it, ESNY is trying to influence our interpretation of ESNY, almost like an Easter egg thrown in to the music. Read the Wikipedia entry on “Baby Blue.” It’s a kicker.

2. Honesty in music doesn’t mean it’s literally autobiographical. Louis said his fav song in MITAM was “Love You Goodbye.” Did it mean Larry split up? We got a million hours of Next-To-You during MITAM promo. “End of the Day” wasn’t about a literal couple at a literal party. Pop music uses romantic imagination to tell stories in metaphors. Sometimes it’s darkly confessional. Sometimes it’s humorous. But always, the lyrics have been created by someone telling a story– they’re fictional. There may be truths in the sentiment of the songs; only the person who wrote it knows for sure.

3. Harry is a songwriter who likes shock and surprise. He likes jokes of all kinds– from dorky, groan-worthy jokes (“A cow says moo.”) to musical jokes. He likes writing provocative songs that invite speculation: “Something Great,” with Louis singing only the last lines, “Stockholm Syndrome” with its bondage imagery. It’s valid to speculate that “Carolina” is about cocaine. Harry probably anticipated this and enjoyed the thought of his fandom wildly speculating. He’s not going to tell. Who’s the “Sweet Creature”? He’s not going to tell (not until much, much later). Speculation SELLS SONGS. It’s great for business. It creates buzz.

4. There are a lot of ways to listen to songs. There’s the relaxed enjoyment of just having good music in your ears. There’s the intellectual understanding of musical theory and structure. There’s imagination about the true subject of the songs. In any case, I recommend not letting music cause any anxiety. Music, like creative writing or even non-fictional writing, is therapeutic for the artist. When Harry writes about heartbreak, he isn’t only reliving the heartbreak. In a way, he has made peace with it, and has transformed it into art. The fact that the lyrics seem so evocative and REAL means the songwriters did a good job. They made us FEEL something. Harry himself has moved on. We don’t need to feel angst for his life– he is a grown man, a professional artist. The music is exorcism for some ghosts, both in his personal life, and in his musical expression– these are songs that show his digestion and transformation of the music inside him. You can see how happy he was performing in the Today concert. The music is his craft and his livelihood. His obsession, now, is to present it well in performance, to do well in the charts, to collect accolades and respect. Remember this statement– doing well drives every aspect of his promo. His obsession isn’t the same as our obsession. The music is all new to us, but not to him. He has moved on. He is a musician, and it’s more important for him to get recognition as a musician.

Music is such an intimate way to communicate. It speaks to our imagination so directly and forcefully. It affects the most primitive parts of our brains, the limbic system, so closely tied to our instincts for survival: hunger, sex, fear, excitement, love, protectiveness. That’s why we have these unconscious and involuntary responses— it’s the damn nerves. Don’t blame yourself for responding to music the way you do. It’s built into your system, the way we all want to have good food and good sex. I want to send a little love to everyone who loves music in your own ways: you have feelings, you’re human, you’re alive. I love that you feel so intensely about music, because I do too.

Finally, it’s okay not to agree. It’s okay NOT to like Harry’s music. It’s okay to criticize the lyrics or music for artistic reasons. To me, being a fan means using my intelligence to judge merit for myself. Don’t beat yourself up for not liking something, and please don’t beat other people up. If you don’t like it, there are lots and lots and lots of other great music to listen to, I promise– music just as compelling, with just as great a backstory.

Close 🍺

A/N: Let me know if you like this one! It’s my first little piece of writing and I would really appreciate the feedback! 

The mattress squeaks under duress as you land with a loud thud. You don’t know how you managed to find a room without barging into horny youngsters trying to savour every inch of each other. Thankfully you didn’t, and you were gracious for the moment of peace the silence gave you (even if the bass was slightly pouring through the closed door). It wasn’t normal for you to be drinking so much; you usually were the one taking care of Harry when he had a bit too much to drink. Dealing with drunk Harry was like dealing with an over affectionate boyfriend. There’s lots of sweaty kisses on your cheek, and the occasional “really do love yeh, pet, ever since we met” followed by you stuffing his mouth with bread to ignore the slight swirl you’d feel from his words. And regardless of the amount of alcohol he drank, Harry would practically beg for a cuddle with you. He’d claim it’s because your five foot build fits so perfectly with his, but he knows he wouldn’t get a chance if he was sober, so he uses his slightly intoxicated state to breathe words he’d never say and actions he’d never do.  

“And where is Harry now?” a little voice murmured.

 A tiny jab of irrational jealousy poured through you as you were reminded of his arms wrapped around another girl, who, in your opinion,  had a little less clothing on than most. You watched them together - his eyes taking in her body, reaching forward to whisper something she’d inevitably giggle at. You’d see the way she’d looked at him, like he was some God, born with the body and charisma that would make any girl swoon. You couldn’t blame them of course, his mixture of cocky and confident drew people to him. For you, it was his adorable sense of humour and his pursuit to bring happiness to anyone he cared for. And that allowed you two to become friends. Good friends. Close friends.  Right?

Time to re-evaluate Rey’s playlist on Spotify

Romantic, platonic, either way… Reylo is very likely to be canon right now.

We, Reylos, as we already know it, are prophetic. So there were already many posts floating around about Reylo being indicated in Rey’s playlist.

After the trailer dropped, I decided to listen to Rey’s playlist again when I go to/back from work well thats quite a short time. Now I find it rather comical that we really have these songs RIGHT under our noses because it’s just so obvious.

These are some of the songs that I find 100000% reylo-esque:

  1. WILD by Troye Sivan – Personal favorite because I didn’t know this song until it played randomly while I was driving, and I heard a very Reylo part and just screamed “HECK” at the traffic light.

    We’re alike you and I
    Two blue hearts locked in our wrong minds
    So can we make the most out of no time?
    Can you hold me?
    Can you make me leave my demons and my broken pieces behind?

    Leave this blue neighbourhood
    Never knew loving could hurt this good, oh
    And it drives me wild
    ‘Cause when you look like that
    I’ve never ever wanted to be so bad, oh
    It drives me wild

  2. Shut Up and Dance by Walk The Moon – I actually think this is about Kylo towards Rey because the situation just FITS.

    We were victims of the night
    The chemical, physical, kryptonite
    Helpless to the bass and the fading light
    Oh we were bound to get together
    Bound to get together

    She took my arm
    I don’t know how it happened
    We took the floor and she said

    Oh don’t you dare look back
    Just keep your eyes on me
    I said you’re holding back
    She said shut up and dance with me
    This woman is my destiny
    She said oh oh oh
    Shut up and dance with me

  3. No One by Alicia Keys – the whole sONG ACTUALLY SCREAMS REYLO PLS CHECK

    When the rain is pouring down
    And my heart is hurting
    You will always be around
    This I know for certain

    You and me together
    Through the days and nights
    I don’t worry 'cause
    Everything’s gonna be alright
    People keep talking they can say what they like
    But all I know is everything’s gonna be alright

    No one, no one, no one
    Can get in the way of what I’m feeling
    No one, no one, no one
    Can get in the way of what I feel for you, you, you
    Can get in the way of what I feel

  4. Omen (feat. Sam Smith) by Disclosure
    You were waiting, I was vacant
    You left before my eyes
    Then it hit me, you’re relocating
    And I need you by my side

    It’s an omen
    Caught my baby crying
    Saw the silver lining
    It must be an omen
    Needed you to show me
    Without you I am lonely

    My mind would rule my heart
    I didn’t pay attention to the light in the dark
    It left me torn apart
    But now I see your tears are an omen

  5. Army by Ellie Goulding
    Dark times, you could always find the bright side
    I’m amazed by the things that you would sacrifice
    Just to be there for me
    How you cringe when you sing out of tune
    But yet it’s everything
    So don’t change a thing
    We both know what they say about us
    But they don’t stand a chance because

    When I’m with you
    When I’m with you
    I’m standing with an army
    I’m standing with an army

  6. Sound of Your Heart by Shawn Hook – Force bond, anyone?

    You showed me heaven, you rang up bells
    I played with matches, it hurt like hell
    Asleep and wake, you’re all I see
    I can’t escape you, can’t set you free
    I miss your full moon rising, catching a breath in silence
    Can’t stop this bleeding, can’t stop believing
    I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

    Baby I’m in love with you
    Oh, I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
    Baby you were mine to lose
    Oh, I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
    Missing you, missing you
    I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

Actually this has became a very long post. So I’m gonna deny my urge to put relevant parts of the lyrics and make a list instead because there are sO MANY SONGS.

  • We Found Love by Rihanna & Calvin Harris – Say no more, it’s just so obvious
  • Set Fire to the Rain by Adele – COme on this song hAS BEEN EVERYWHER IN MY LIFE AND IT’S OBVIOUSLY REYLO
  • Battlefield by Jordin Sparks – Relevant. Just very relevant.
  • Compass by Zella Day – Compass here mean force bond right i got it
  • Phoenix by Olivia Holt – A song to give each other support
  • Bang Bang by Jessie J – Actually no I just wanna say that Rey & Kylo need to bang. I know they want it.
  • Adventure of a Lifetime by Coldplay
  • A Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay
  • Smoke and Fire by Sabrina Carpenter
  • Our Own House by MisterWives
Vibes    By : Y. Black

She told me she loved that I was from the south

My country twang

Certain way I do thangs

But really, she just like the way I make her legs shake

While the rearview vibrates

How I stare in her face

Cuz the music so loud I can’t hear nothing she say

She dig all the room in the back of the Box Chevy Caprice

We get’s it down like we not even in the back seat

She loves how my motor runnin’

She mimic the sound on my dick while she hummin’

When the trunk get to raddlin’

That when she really orgasmic

Start off in the hot box

Transition to a wet twat

Fogged up windows

Zero fucks we gettin’ it in tho

Four 12 inch woofers going ham

I can feel the bass tremoring off you into my hands

The capacitor keeps the juices flowing

The tempo of the music got me long stroking

All she wants is for the music to quake

And for me to hit it til her back brakes

Rest in peace, Nicole Bass
[1964 - 2017]

Former ECW and WWF superstar Nicole Bass has sadly passed away. She was 52.

Fans of The Attitude Era will recall the monstrous presence of Nicole Bass making her debut in March of 1999. Bass was WWF Women’s Champion Sable’s bodyguard at WrestleMania 15, and was briefly involved in a feud against Debra. Bass also had a short-lived but hysterical run with Val Venis, in which she was Val’s female counterpart. That is, until she whacked him with Jeff Jarrett’s guitar after losing a bikini contest to Debra.

Bass and Ivory began teaming for a short time before Bass left the WWF. Prior to her run in the WWF, Nicole was a member of the ECW roster, hanging primarily with Justin Credible, Chastity, and Jason.

Nicole’s girlfriend posted the following on her Facebook page:

Dignity and Respect.
2 things every person on this planet deserves.
2 things very important to Nicole Bass.
The past few days I, Kristen Marrone, have been posting to my girlfriends pages to try and keep her very personal life private. Rumors have been spreading around the internet about her health. A few days ago we didn’t know all of what was going on so I have been trying to keep it quiet until we had answers. Nicole values her privacy and I Respect that. Before anyone tries to take the story and twist it up and make it ugly I want to put it out there in a Respectful way.
A few days ago Nicole got very sick. She was brought into the hospital and they did everything they could to help her. I have been sitting here with her in the room 24/7 since she got here making sure she was being given the best possible care. Today we learned that there is nothing else that can be done.
Nicole was an amazing woman. Strong not only on the outside but inside as well. Beautiful soul and kind heart. Many people knew Nicole but few ever got close enough to know the REAL woman that she was. I got to be one of the lucky few. Not only was she my soul mate and my girlfriend but she was my best friend, my teacher and my business partner. I learned many valuable things from her and created many beautiful memories in the time we had together.
I would like to keep her page open for her loving fans and friends to share their photos and memories.
I just ask that you treat Nicole with the dignity and respect that she deserves.
Thank you to everyone that has been reaching out to and helping me through this very difficult time.
Nicole, I love you. I will always love you.
I will always be yours and you will always be <3 mine

Rest in peace, Nicole.

Chapter 4

At noon, Claire found a spare moment to grab her mobile and text Geillis, on the off chance that she would be on break too. 

traitor. what did u say to him about me?

She waited a full twenty minutes before the phone buzzed in reply.

technically, nothing. i told Rupert, ye ken? ;)

what did u say specifically to Rupert then?

oh, only that you workd at the University College Hospital A&E, 235 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BU. ur lucky i didn’t give him your home address. 

Claire gripped the phone, mildly wishing it were Geillis’s neck. So throttling it was, not hugging as previously considered.

well, he showed up here. chased frnk away, as it were, nice surprise. and he asked me out for coffee.

!!!!!!!!!!!! :O :O

TECHNICALLY, dinner, but i’m afraid i can only do coffee. For now.

claire, i must get back to wk, but i am calling you later. don’t even think about not taking my call. OK?!?!?!!!

Claire allowed herself a small grin. alright, we’ll talk later.

She put her phone away, but it buzzed one more time.

u must name one of ur future bairns after me!

Claire stuffed the wretched thing in her pocket and walked away, leaving all thought of blue-eyed, red-haired children behind.


The lavender sweater hung inside her locker, while Claire just stared at it. It was 5:45, and Jamie was due in fifteen minutes. Should she change out of her scrubs, put a bit of makeup on, or just stroll out in her nurse-wear, tennis shoes, and tangled curls?

“Why am I even debating this?” Claire muttered to herself, before slamming the locker door shut with a clang. After washing her hands at the sink, she pulled a hair tie out of her purse, making a messy bun on the top of her head. If Jamie was the sort of man that cared much about a woman’s appearance, then she wouldn’t want to go out with him after this anyway.

In her navy pea coat, Claire stepped out of the hospital, bundling herself against the chill in the air. At six on the dot, Jamie turned the corner, in a simple white t-shirt, jeans, and that damnable leather jacket. Noticing Claire immediately, his face broke out in a sunny grin; he came right up to her and gave her a brief peck on the cheek.

“Hello, Claire. I’m glad to see ye didna change yer mind.”

“Hi, Jamie,” Claire managed, still a little stunned at his greeting. “I almost did, just now, wishing I had worn something else. You look very… well, James Dean comes to mind.”

He laughed, deep bass and staccato. “Ye look lovely. I’d love for people to see I’m out with a  doctor.”

“I’m not a doctor,” Claire amended with a smile.

“Not yet.” Jamie extended his hand toward the street. “Shall we?”

That hand found its way to the small of her back, there but not touching, and Claire did not know what to make of it. She imagined it was him not pushing himself on her, letting her take the lead—and she liked him for it.

In shy, comfortable silence, Claire walked them to a nearby café she frequented with the other nurses. They sat across from each other and ordered from the waitress, black decaf for her, and cream and sugar for Jamie.

“Could we get some scones with clotted cream please?” Claire asked. The server nodded with a smile and swept away to fetch a plate. “They’re absolute heaven,” she explained to Jamie, helping herself to a steaming scone.

“Did ye eat properly today?” Jamie probed. “Seems like they work ye to the bone.” 

Claire smiled. “I had a sandwich from the hospital cafeteria.”

“I’ll no’ have ye go hungry. Please, let’s order something more.” He raised his hand to signal their server, but Claire brought it back down. A tingle shot across her skin and she withdrew hastily. 

“Perhaps later.” So you are considering a ‘later’, a voice piped up in her mind. Claire shut down this inner monologue with a long sip from her cup.

“So Claire…” Jamie brushed his hand against the back of his neck; this was a gesture she had seen before and thought oddly endearing. “I’d like to apologize for asking yer friend Geillis for information on where to contact ye.”

“Oh.” Claire blinked. “There’s no need really.”

“She told me ye changed yer number ye see,” Jamie continued, with red-tipped ears. “And I certainly wasna goin’ to show up unannounced at yer doorstep.”

“It’s fine. It’s nice to see you again.” She looked down at the table and breathed deeply. “I guess you should know what took me to that bar in the first place, weeks ago.”

“Only if ye care to tell me. I assumed Frank did something bad.” He stirred another sugar in with a nod for her to continue—if she wanted to.

“Frank cheated.” Claire swallowed hard. “I caught him in the act, you know—” here Jamie winced in sympathy—“and I fled to Edinburgh to see a friendly face. Geillis helped me drown my sorrows.” 

“And then, like a wee idiot, I asked ye backstage and you thought I wanted—“

“I admit, I was a bit flattered.” Claire grinned, remembering. “Mostly annoyed though.” 

“Were ye?” Jamie’s eyes gleamed, teasing. His hand lay close to hers on the table. Her fingers twitched involuntarily, and she took the spoon off the saucer instead. The waitress refilled their cups and lay down a fresh plate of scones.

“A bit.” Claire inhaled the sugary yeast of the bread, the sharpness of the coffee, and the spicy scent that was him. “It’s been a month. And you were right, it’s still raw and hurting. Less than yesterday, but more than tomorrow.” She tried to keep the bitterness from her tone, and almost succeeded. Her eyes met his honest, open gaze and she thought he understood.

“I suppose that’s how it goes. One day at a time.” Jamie squeezed her hand briefly, unawares, and too soon let go.

Flustered, she bit into a warm scone and licked the crumbs off her lips. “Tell me about your tour, then. Seemed like an awful lot of cities in such a short time.”

“It was hellish betimes, lass. It helps that we are all genuinely good mates and we love what we do. Ian’s my brother-in-law, ye ken?”

“I didn’t! He married your…?”

“Sister. Jenny. I’m an uncle four times over. They’ve managed to carry on despite the long distance.” Jamie’s blue eyes sparkled in remembrance of his nieces and nephews.

Claire smiled and raised her cup to the mysterious Jenny. “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”

“Aye, and abstinence too, apparently.” The Scottish burr of rolling r’s ensnared her into a feeling of warmth and security long forgotten. Claire laughed, and it felt good to laugh, openly and truthfully, cleansing her heart.

Jamie took a bite of a scone liberally spread with cream. “Ian’s always been by my side. We’re childhood friends, and wi’ Jenny always about, it only seemed natural for them to get marrit.” When he spoke with emotion, his accent got thicker, she noticed.

“And the rest of the band?”

“Cousins. And our manager is our uncle, Murtagh,” said Jamie.

“All in the family indeed. And why music? Don’t get me wrong, you’re very talented,” Claire clarified as Jamie cleared his throat in amusement.

“Even though ye had never heard of us before?” His eyes gleamed with humor.

“Geillis would have told you, of course.” Claire blushed.

“Weel, my da took me to a concert when I was eight years old, to see U2. They played in Edinburgh at Murrayfield Stadium. The first notes began and it was puir magic—how everyone responded and I thought, I want that someday.”

Another comfortable silence stretched between them. The sky outside had darkened rapidly into November night. Small flakes were falling; they melted as soon as they brushed against the window. It had been an hour—or perhaps two, Claire wasn’t keeping track, to be honest—and even more surprisingly, she didn’t want to leave.

“And ye, why nursing?”

“I suppose I like helping people. I was always fascinated by the first aid tent at Uncle Lamb’s expeditions and digs. He was an archaeologist. I had a most unusual upbringing.” Claire grinned into the dregs of her coffee when Jamie looked taken aback. “I know how to dig latrines and light fires and the proper procedure for cataloguing priceless ancient artifacts.

“But it was healing that attracted me. When men from the dig would come in, hurt or sick, and I could help do something for them. And I hope to continue doing that, when—if—I get into medical school.”

Jamie tapped her hand with a long finger. “So ye are plannin’ to be a doctor! I knew it! It’s a relief, bein’ certain about what it is we want to do in life, isn’t it?”

“Frank always said he was jealous, that I’d always known what my calling was,” Claire said. “He wasn’t always an arse.”

The waitress came over with the check and an apologetic smile. “I’m sorry to toss you out, but we’re closing soon. Would you mind cashing out with me? You don’t have to leave yet, though.” Jamie gave her a dazzling smile and pulled a £20 note.

Noting Claire’s glance at the bill—far too much for what they had consumed, even with tip—Jamie explained, “I always felt guilty about spending hours and hours at cafés in Scotland and only drinkin’ water. Now that I can, I like to make it up to others.” He put the money on the small tray and told the waitress to keep the change.

That brought to mind their previous coffee encounter. “If the tour’s over, why are you in London then?” Claire asked.

“Och, I live here,” Jamie answered.

“I thought you said you lived on your family’s farm, Lolling- something?” Claire said, confused.

“Lallybroch,” Jamie corrected gently. “Aye, that’s home, but not where I live. Verra important distinction.” He tried to wink, but was apparently incapable of it; he managed to blink with both eyes and nod at the same time, which made Claire burst out laughing again.

Seizing her hand suddenly, he looked eagerly into her eyes. “A friend of ours, Hugh, owns a bar here, Duke’s. He’s asked us to play this weekend, and we said yes, as a surprise for his patrons. He’s a good lad, he gave us one of our biggest breaks early on.”

Claire sat unmoving, staring distractedly at their hands together and trying not to notice that tingling sensation that seemed to develop whenever their skin came into contact. Trying not to get caught in the intense azure of his gaze which she was studiously ignoring. If she looked, she would say yes. Yes to anything he suggested or wanted. And it felt like too much, too soon.


“Come. Please. I’d really love for ye to be there, Claire. Bring Geillis if ye like—I know Rupert would.”

“I don’t know.” Don’t do this. Don’t do this to me. “It seems complicated. I mean, you’re James bleeding rock-star Fraser and you seem all kinds of perfect. I can’t deny you’re attractive. That I’m attracted to you.” Just say it. “I’m drawn to you—this—whatever this is. But my head… it’s not there yet.”

Jamie’s thumb circled her palm, eliciting uninvited sparks. “And yer heart?”

Claire flushed red. “Oh, Jamie.”

“I’d like to try for it. As long as it takes. I’ll be here—you can have whatever you need from me. I’ll wait, Claire. I’ll stay.”


It’s really been over half a decade since we lost you, Paul. We’ve been without your face, your music, and your touching nature for six years. We can only say so much for how much you’ve impacted the entire world, how you’ve saved lives and given hope to countless people of every age and race. You’ve created a monster that is growing in size and creativity and this monster is Slipknot. This monster has grown into such proportions that you’ve got millions of people that love you and will always have you in their hearts.

“The world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you… The world will never know another man as amazing as you…” – “Skeptic”

We miss you, Paulie. That laugh, smile, adorable horseplay, and that awesome lefty playing. Keep watching over the Maggots. We love you.

.For Paul Gray. 

April 8, 1972 - May 24, 2010

anonymous asked:

So I saw that you liked La La Land, and I watched it. And I didn't like it. The ending made me feel empty. And I didn't like Emma's voice when I first heard her sing. But I keep going back and listening to the music. And I keep rewatching. So maybe I do like it? I'm confused. So I was wondering what you liked the most about it.

It took me a few days to form my opinion on La La Land after my first time watching it, too. And the exact same thing happened to me: I kept listening to the music. I had the soundtrack on repeat for an entire week. And as I listened, I thought about it more and more, and everything sort of fell into place.

This movie is incredibly well put together. The day before it came out on DVD I was still noticing little details about it! Here’s a list of some things I picked up on.

  • The name of the movie, of course. Most of us know that “la la land” refers to a mental state where everything is whimsical and dreamy. But “la la” is also used for singing. LA is the abbreviation for Los Angeles. And Los Angeles is a city where people go to chase impossible dreams. That’s just the name, friend.
  • Mia and Sebastian’s Theme. Usually when we hear it in the movie, it’s the complete version, melody and bass. It’s beautiful, yeah? Sounds like falling in love. You know when we don’t hear it that way? At the end, right after the What If scenario. There we hear only the melody, and it sounds melancholy af without the bass. That is a musical cue to the audience that Sebastian is not okay.
  • We also hear it in the moments where Mia and Sebastian realize that they are supposed to be with one another. Did Mia really hear it over the restaurant speakers? Or was she listening to her own heart?
  • We can tell the relationship meant more to Sebastian than it did to Mia because throughout the movie, we see Mia with three total guys, while we only see Sebastian with Mia.
  • The scene where Mia is on the phone with her mother and Sebastian is getting dressed. We can tell from Mia’s one-sided conversation that her mother is kind of judgmental about Sebastian, and he hears that. Then he looks up and sees the stain on the ceiling. The scene was, what, a minute long? And it did away with so much unnecessary expository dialogue? Everyone who watches that scene knows exactly what’s going on and what it’s going to lead to: Seb taking up his friend’s offer to join the band.
  • More context for Seb catching more feelings than Mia: After the dance number on the hilltop, after she’s driven away and he’s walking back to his car, he drags his foot along the ground. One last dance step. Because she’s still on his mind.
  • And let’s not forget that he walked her all the way up there, claimed his car was just around the corner, and it was PARKED ALL THE WAY BACK IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE. *pauses to whimper loudly*

Some more basic reasons:

  • It’s a cute and simple love story.
  • Mia thinking the next rejection will kill her is so gosh darn relatable to someone trying to make it in the arts
  • It wasn’t afraid to be brutal (no one showed up to her show! damn!!)
  • Pretty colors
  • The comedic moments, like when Mia forces Seb to play “I Ran” at the party and dances and lip syncs to it as her way of giving him the ultimate finger
