what channel this show come in

anonymous asked:

Ahhhh! For your TV show au what if Singer!Ryan does a cover of Skyfall and they use it for like the season finale omg omg or Dusk Til Dawn by Zayne would fit too I’m SCRWAMING there’s so many possibilities

in this au he has a yt channel for covers and has very likely covered these songs!! also, we decided that skin by rag’n’bone man would be used in the promos for the season finale

on the topic of the show, here’s what it’s about

  • it’s a mystery drama show where most cases are based off the irl bfu cases but set in modern times
  • the first episode of the second season (where ryan come in) is based off the poisoned pill murders, set in the detective agency and brent’s character was the victim
  • ryan’s character, ricky goldsworth, was brought in to replace him
  • ricky is a little cold and aloof at first but he eventually warms up to the other detectives and ends up in a relationship with c.c.
  • c.c.’s parents were interested in the sodder children case and gave him a name with the initials to pay homage in a sense, and in a way, this influenced his decision to become a detective
  • the police detective/inspector characters (larry and grace) are minor antagonists as they believe that the detectives (ricky, cc etc) aren’t “real” detectives
  • one of the main antagonists, delilah white, kidnaps ricky in the second-to-last episode of the second season and forces c.c. to play a game of russian roulette to see if he lives or dies (inspired by the rihanna song “russian roulette”)

I’m fascinated by the fact that Phineas and Ferb is a show that actually exists
Like
I can understand how someone could have come up with the idea of an animated show about stepbrothers trying to find cool ways to spend their summer vacation
And from there I can see how the characters of Candace, Isabella, Beauford, Baljeet, Jeremy, and Stacy came about
But at what godforsaken point in the thought process did someone go, “Hey, what if there’s an ongoing subplot about their pet who’s a secret agent trying to stop a German guy from channeling his anger towards his abusive parents into conquering the tri-state area?”
Just
How

The cameras make a habit of getting a LIL TOO CLOSE to Viktor and Yuuri because the mics sometimes pick up what they say to each other before skating or in the Kiss & Cry, and audiences eat that shit up. There are people who watch ISU events like it’s the Viktor&Yuuri Show, and the sports channels know it

TUNE IN FOR THE NIKIFOROV-KATSUKI VARIETY HOUR, the advertisements practically blare.

Viktor can often be heard composing what sounds like literal on-the-spot poetry. (”You are my sun and stars and I will love you until I’m in the ground–”) Much of this is to calm Yuuri down before he skates. Most viewers assume that he writes this shit down somewhere but people who know Viktor understand it to be just the shit that literally is always coming out of Viktor’s mouth.

“Oh,” Yuuri says while they’re waiting for Viktor’s scores one time. He hasn’t put his glasses back on yet and is kind of just staring, unfocused, into the nebulous distance. “I forgot to call Minako and wish her a happy birthday.”

(“YEAH YOU DID,” Minako growls at the television back in Hasetsu. Hiroko pats her back. She just turned fifty. She’s sensitive.)

“Well, you’re dead now,” Viktor says, picking fuzz off his costume. “It was nice knowing you. I’ll never forget you.”

“Will you move on from me?” Yuuri asks. All of this is completely deadpan as they squint at the scoreboard. Yakov is on Viktor’s other side, rolling his eyes.

“No. I’ll roam the halls of our empty home, wailing for my lost love. When I die, I’ll continue to haunt the place where I was once happy. They will call me the Silver Spectre. Once or twice a year, Americans will come and try to film me. I’ll scream into their camera equipment and carve the words triple axel into the hardwood.”

“Please not the hardwood, Vitya.”

They find out that most ISU programming isn’t actually put on a delay during the 2018 Worlds, when Viktor and Yuuri are congratulating each other on winning gold and silver and the cameras pick up Viktor saying, “When we get home, I’m going to bend you over the table and–”

“LOVING WORDS FROM VIKTOR NIKIFOROV-KATSUKI TO HIS HUSBAND,” screams the commentator, whose producer is currently bellowing abort abort into his left ear. “LET’S GO TO PAULA WHO’S TALKING TO BRONZE MEDALIST YURI PLIS–OKAY, NEVER MIND. HAHA, TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES! WE’RE CUTTING TO COMMERCIAL.”

‘Technical difficulties’ is Yuri punting a tiger plush so hard towards Viktor that it knocks him backwards and into the backdrop for the Kiss & Cry.

“This used to be an ELEGANT SPORT,” Yakov growls. He looks to Lilia, whose expression is suspiciously toothy. “Are you laughing at this, Lilya?”

“How dare you accuse me of such a thing,” Lilia replies.

EVERYONE WHO CAN, TUNE INTO THE DISNEY CHANNEL SHOW ANDI MACK TONIGHT!! They are featuring a MAIN 13 YEAR OLD character coming out to his friend and revealing he likes boys! Disney worked with child development experts AND organisations like GLAAD to make sure that this is handled with the upmost maturity and sensitivity and is portrayed in a way that kids can understand what it is and that it’s totally normal and okay! This is a MASSIVE step for the network and they’re hoping this paves the way for more inclusion of all different types of kids on their shows! So if you can, PLEASE WATCH ANDI MACK TONIGHT ON DISNEY CHANNEL AT 8PM!!! LETS GET THESE RATINGS THROUGH THE ROOF AND SHOW DISNEY THAT THEY ARE MAKING THE RIGHT DECISION!!!

mercury aspects and learning

The planets that aspect mercury in your natal chart influence how you process and absorb information

The type of aspect determines whether a learning style makes life easier or harder for you. 

For example, a mercury-lilith trine means lilith’s influence helps you learn faster. A square between the two bodies indicates that, although intuition is how you learn best, it is hard to access, leaving you struggling until you clear the block.

Another example- mercury-pluto trine: your obsession yields epiphanies/results; mercury-pluto square: your obsessions are your detriment and often lead no where.

With time and development, any mercury aspect can pave the way to accessing and channeling your inner genius.

mercury conjunct sun: the conjunction is the only possible aspect between mercury and the sun. This might mean your ego plays a role in how you learn. You may easily retain information that specifically applies to you, and take pride in your intelligence. This position can indicate intellectual arrogance.

mercury aspect moon: You are an emotional/intuitive learner. You remember things that elicit an emotional response, or have sentimental value. You may be inconsistent in how you absorb information, communicating everything with ease one day and unable to form a coherent thought the next. Your mental energy comes and goes in cycles.

mercury aspect venus: You may be an auditory learner with some musical talent. You might retain information better if it’s in the form of a song. You learn better by taking notes in different colors, in a calm, beautiful environment. Venus brings ease, beauty, and effortless talent to everything it touches. making this an indicator of a sharp, blessed mind.

mercury aspect mars: You learn by doing. You learn through intense, obsessive, single-minded focus. If a subject excites you or rouses your passion, you will lose yourself in it until it bores you, or until you feel you’ve mastered it. You think, speak, and act impulsively- and might get in trouble for your words.

mercury aspect jupiter: You learn the big picture. You prefer lofty theories and ideals to details and hard facts. You like making generalizations and obscure connections between topics. Jupiter “expands” everything it touches, so this is another indicator of intelligence. Check out the very first post on this blog for the possible implications of mercury aspect (esp. conjunct) jupiter (link). Basically, you might be able to channel information from the universe, if developed.

mercury aspect saturn: You learn slowly. You process information thoroughly, and take time to respond or form conclusions. You might have insecurities about your intelligence, or feel like there’s something “blocking” your mind. You may become a faster learner in later years, and retain mental acuity well into old age.

mercury aspect uranus: You are an independent learner. You don’t like school or learning from teachers. You hate traditional methods. You learn what you feel like learning and come to your own conclusions. You may be prone to sudden epiphanies and flashes of genius. This is another indicator of intelligence. 

mercury aspect neptune: You are an intuitive learner. You like to “feel” the right answer, but can’t explain how you came up with it. You might have gotten in trouble for not showing your work. Like jupiter, neptune helps create a channel for spiritual/universal information. However, neptune either “dissolves” or “elevates” what it touches- making this position a possible blessing or curse.

mercury aspect pluto: You are an obsessive learner. You gain deeper insights into a small number of subjects by thinking about them over and over, for prolonged periods of time. You learn by asking hard questions and not stopping until you get answers. You are excellent at things that interest you, and completely apathetic to things you consider boring. Mercury-pluto people can see things with frightening clarity or be blinded by their emotions and paranoia. Like neptune, this can be extremely good or extremely bad.

mercury aspect lilith: You are wildly creative, unconventional, stubborn, and intuitive. You learn best by allowing your subconscious to guide you. Your mind has a mind of its own, presenting you with unusual, brilliant ideas, but preventing you from grasping numbers and hard concepts. Your difficulty with learning some things (along with supernatural mastery of others) could make you feel alienated from the world. You may have a gift for understanding the mystical/occult, at the expense of being unable to grasp solid, practical subjects.

Not that I’m saying my dating life is bad, but the most stable boyfriend I ever had was the one who was 100% convinced “Psychic Bigfoot” was real.

“But…if he were real, he would have been found by now. I mean, come on. This is absurd! A full-grown dude wandering around looking furry, people would notice. And it’s America and someone would have shot him or something. This is bizarre.”

*pause*

“The Discovery channel already explained this, Sharon. He is psychic. He has powers. It’s how he knows how to evade capture.” 

I mean, he was nice. And cute.

But I’d have rather not sat through the documentary show where the rednecks, followed by cameras, were all: “But Bigfoot knows what we are thinking! He is always a step ahead! Why we need weapons.”

IMPORTANT PSA

arin “egoraptor” hanson is a very talented artist and voice actor. his “bad gaming skills” do not discredit the his amazing talents in other areas. he should not be hated for his opinions on gaming topics, unpopular or otherwise. he is a very funny, very kind, very talented individual. he built the game grumps company from the ground up and, without him, we would not have the beloved channel and all of the youtube shows that we love so much. please recognize how wonderful and talented he is. please be thankful for all he has done and brought to us. 

please appreciate arin “egoraptor” hanson. thank you. that is all. 

au where bitty becomes a really popular youtuber

and after jack publicly comes out they do the couples yoga challenge for eric’s channel and jack has never been quite this bad at anything in his life, and eric is just like “oh, honey, can you not lift your leg over your head? what about touching your toes? well, at least you can lift me. lord, this just goes to show that if figure skating were easy they would call it hockey.

anonymous asked:

Maybe tutorial on poses??? I really like the poses you draw :D

Alright, there isnt a set way to come up with good poses, but i can show you some resources that’ll help with yours!

the key to getting ur poses to look great is a strong understanding of GESTURE

Here’s a video explaining gesture by Stan Prokopenko

I also recommend watching his other gesture videos so you get a better idea of what you should be aiming for when studying gesture.

but how do you get better at gesture drawing?

Here’s Croquis Cafe

and New Master’s Academy

Both channels have a series of videos emulating real-life timed figure drawing studio sessions. You’ll start with quick 1min poses and work your way up to 5 and 10 minute poses. I try to do at least one of these sessions every day. 

If it feels like its going too fast, you can pause, but remember you’re meant to reduce or increase the simplicity of the figure depending on the time you re given. It’ll take time to get seriously good at this, however you’ll start seeing improvements within a few days!

Now if you’re looking for a place where to find a number of good ol anime pinup-like poses to use as reference and build a library, there’s

Gravure Heaven (nsfw)

and Giga Chaoss (also nsfw)

among a few other sites such as imageboards and the like. Ive also made it a habit to save any picture or artwork with a cool pose into my library.

aand thats about it! this is the QUICK way to getting good at poses. As long as you’re willing to put in the effort you’ll definitely get results from this!

I just had this idea and I’m fucking crying laughing

The Avengers plus Pepper and Rhodey on the red carpet leading up to the annual Maria Stark Foundation gala, answering questions, telling people what they’re wearing, posing for pictures, making nice with the paparazzi. And then it Happens.

“So who are you going home with tonight, Mr. Stark?” some asshole calls out, smiling cheekily.

And Tony’s smile goes from sincere to brittle, and every other interviewer and paparazzo vows to murder this asshole, because Tony’s going to clam up now, give snarky answers–

“He’s going home with me,” Pepper says sweetly, curling her arm around his.

“No, he’s going home with me,” Natasha replies, smug, and curls her arm around Tony’s free one.

“Sorry, ladies,” Bucky drawls, wrapping his arms around Tony’s waist and drawing him away from them. “He’s going home with me.”

“Nay, friend Barnes!” Thor booms, pulling Tony away from him. “Anthony will be accompanied home by me!”

Steve doesn’t even bother saying anything, just punches Thor in the solar plexus and steals Tony from him. Steve has, of course, started a brawl, because that’s always what he’s been best at, even when he was tiny and asthmatic. Even Pepper joins in, using the chain of her purse to try and strangle Bucky (which he admits was not all for show later).

“Let’s go inside,” Bruce suggests, a little green around the edges, and ushers Tony along the carpet.

Rhodey curls his arm around Tony’s shoulders as he steps into the building. “But you’re going home with me, right?”

Tony’s smile is tremulous. “Rhodey~”

“Go home and drink wine from a box and watch shitty movies on the sci-fi channel?” Rhodey nudges Bruce with his elbow. “You can come too, Bruce, we like to bitch about the science.”

“That sounds–nice,” Bruce offers.

(The rest of the Avengers and Pepper, bedraggled and bruised, straggle into the Tower later that night to see that Bruce is drunkenly crying into his hands “that’s not how this works, that’s not how any of this works” as Tony and Rhodey howl with laughter over Piranhaconda and how fake the fish-snake looks.)

Am I the only one who feel like this had a deeper meaning? Maybe that her ex-husband always told her that she owed him something and that she’s still stuck with that, and that Levi obviously has seen and understood it. She looks kinda sad while nodding so it’s gotta be something right? I need to know more about Levi’s dad. I hope they make a full episode about him, that he comes back and Raven and Chelsea face him, that Chelsea finally can stand up for herself and send him to hell, kinda like what she did to Brenda. It seems like she’s scared of him. But maybe I’m just overthinking again. I know it’s on Disney Channel, it’s for kids, it’s fun and bla bla bla but honestly i feel like there is a lot more serious content in this show if you just look deeper into it. 

so i’ve seen a lot of talk recently (from myself included) about all the plotlines being explored in s4, which ones are getting more or less time, and sana not getting enough focus- so i wanted to take some time and separate the show from the fandom and the social media content and really see what’s getting the main focus, specifically looking at the screen time dedicated to each plotline 

i feel like since we all want to know like everything that's going on with every character and have created so many theories, small details really stand out and get cycled around the fandom a lot so they feel like the biggest deal (which i mostly love) but like i said i’m putting all that aside and this is only going to be what’s shown in the show itself because while the youtube channel and text messages and everything add so much it really all comes down to what’s actually on air

so i’m gonna split this up into what i think are the main plotlines we’ve been following (of course some of these overlap and i’ll account for that) and this is only a little over halfway through episode 4 (posted before the last clip) and i’ve rounded a bit just for sanity’s sake 

  • Sana’s personal conflicts and storylines
    • Russebuss/ Islam and Norwegian Identity (including her performing Salah): 34 minutes
    • Yousef: 22 minutes
    • Relationship with family: 15 minutes
  • Noora and her past/relationship with William: 16 minutes
  • Vilde and her relationship with Magnus: 5:30 minutes 
  • Evak and Even’s connection to Sana/Mikael: 6:30 minutes 

take from this what you will i really just did this to work it out for myself

A PAINTING’S WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS

Author: mikkimouse

Summary: Derek does a painting show for the local public broadcasting channel, and Stiles is the producer/cameraman who has been working with him for the past five years (while nursing a fairly sizable crush).

Maybe filming this year’s Christmas program is just what they need to get their act together.

(Or, the Bob Ross AU absolutely nobody asked for.)

Info: 3k | Teen | Fluff, Artist Derek

Notes: Oh how I’ve missed fics! I took a break to read Homo Deus (it’s all about the future of humanity taking into account the development of technology so, yup, a heavy read) and coming back to this was exactly what I needed. Derek is a painter with his own show on tv and Stiles is the cameraman that pines over him behind the camera. It’s the cutest fluff and the first great fic from 2018! -C

Sneak Peek:

Stiles had begged to be put on Derek’s show. Thankfully, the station management hadn’t needed too much convincing, and he and Derek had been together ever since.

Professionally. They’d been together professionally ever since.

Stiles really hadn’t meant to go and fall head-over-heels for Derek. Early on, it had been easy enough to chalk it up to physical attraction and move on. But then he got to know Derek, saw how much he loved teaching people to paint, saw how much he loved his family and talking about their nonprofit work at the sanctuary, saw how earnest he was with people who enjoyed the show, and…

Well, at some point in the past five years, it had just happened. And now Stiles spent an inordinate amount of his life pining for one of his coworkers and closest friends. Really, that was just his fucking life.

anonymous asked:

Reader comforting Pete after he messes up on a mission and innocents get hurt?

There was a sombre mood in the common room as you and most of the Avengers sat around the enormous TV which Tony had installed.

You sat on the arm of one of the sofas with Wanda leaning her head against your thigh, silent tears streaming down her cheeks. You stroked her hair absentmindedly, unable to pull your eyes away from the TV screen.

The mission from which you’d all just returned had been horrible. Clint was trying to make you laugh by doing impressions of Pudsey Bear, but the blood staining the bandage around his head slightly ruined the effect. Steve and Bucky had barely spoken since returning, Wanda had barely stopped crying, and the rest of the team appeared to be in a daze as they watched the footage from the mission on the screen.

You had all fought well, but you were severely outnumbered by gunmen. Civilians had been trapped in the middle of the fight, and the footage on every news channel in the world showed just how well you’d defended them as they were carried away in bags.

You breathed in sharply as footage of you and Peter appeared on the screen, trying desperately to shield a group of civilians from a spray of bullets. You knew what was coming, and watched with a grave expression as a bullet struck your left shoulder and made you fall to the ground. On the screen, Peter lunged towards you to catch you, leaving the civilians unguarded.

They fell like dominoes.

“That’s enough,” you said suddenly, your voice strangely emotionless. “We all know what happened, watching this won’t help anyone.”

You reached for the remote with your uninjured arm and switched the TV off, before standing and making your way into the kitchen.

Peter was hunched over the sink, and the muffled sounds of sobs reached your ears. Sighing, you climbed onto the breakfast bar and sat facing him, your legs swinging over the side of the table.

“Give it a couple of days, they’ll have stopped reporting about it,” you told him quietly. “Three days, and people will forget the footage ever existed.”

“But I won’t forget,” your boyfriend replied, standing slightly straighter but not turning to face you. “Every time I blink, I either see you or them being shot.”

You rubbed your bandaged shoulder subconsciously, trying to think of a way to comfort him.

“I know what you’re here to do, (Nickname), and I appreciate it, but I have to accept this,” he continued. “People died, it’s on me.”

“It’s on both of us,” you argued back, and he turned to face you, confusion written all over his face. “If I’d just been watching, I would’ve seen the bullet that got me coming. I wouldn’t have been hit, you wouldn’t have moved, and we would’ve saved those people.”

When Peter didn’t reply, you opened your arms to him, hiding your grimace of pain as your left shoulder screamed in protest. He closed the distance between the two of you quickly, wrapping his arms around your waist and burying his face in the crook of your neck as he stood between your legs. You rubbed his back gently, whispering comforting nonsense under your breath to him.

“When I saw you fall, I didn’t care about the others,” he whispered eventually, his voice thick with tears. “I thought I’d lost you, and they didn’t matter anymore. Does that make me a bad person?”

You pulled away slightly so that your forehead was resting against his. He clung to your wrists as you cupped his face carefully.

“Don’t you ever say that, Pete. You try to save everyone you can, that makes you one of the bravest people in the world. You’re my hero.”

He chuckled quietly, nuzzling his nose against yours.

“And you’re my world,” he whispered back.

12x10 - “Pterodactyl Screeching into the void” - Part 1

My title is borrowed from @postmodernmulticoloredcloak comment on my crazy blogging after first watching this episode earlier. I feel like it is a fitting title for how this episode made me feel. To clarify, these are very very happy pterodactyls.

Steve Yokey wrote this episode and he appears to have well and truly taken up the gap left when Robbie Thompson sadly left the show. In fact this episode to me channels the ghost of Robbie in many different ways. From the fanfiction-esque moments of poor suffering third wheel Sam, to the meta nod to Charlie Bradbury, there is much of Robbie to be found here. Basically, it was bloody perfect.

I feel like there is so much to talk about in this episode that fandom will be chewing on it for months if not years to come. Yokey has picked up the characterisations brilliantly, and seems to have an understanding of what the fandom desperately craves in terms of Castiel, his character, his personality and his development. I adored his sass in this episode. Some other writers *cough*bucklemming*cough* struggle to really capture Castiel’s sass and humour. Showing their lack of understanding of Castiel’s persona and his intelligence and instead writing him in a way that is jarring and sometimes basically stupid. Castiel is far from stupid. In this episode he was written perfectly, in a way I haven’t seen since Edlund’s time. Is that a sweeping statement? Maybe. But I’m still riding my high so let me have it this time.

This episode gave us three of my favourite things. Badass and Sassy Castiel, Overprotective grumpy husband Dean, and poor long suffering brother Sam. (baring in mind this is how they are usually written in fanfiction nowadays this is exactly my jam and I am so so happy to see it play out on screen. Seriously who sold their soul to Crowley for this episode?)

This review will also be in two parts. Because I have so freaking much to say about it.

The first part will focus on destiel, the second on everything else including Castiel’s emotional arc (as separate from destiel), his relationships with angels, angels and gender and Lily Sunder’s character.

anonymous asked:

So, I'm American & fairly new to the Skam fandom and unfamiliar with Norwegian anything, so I was just wondering about something. On the show they play songs in English and the characters, most notably Noora, sing American songs in English, so does this mean they also speak English and understand it? Like if I went to Norway and ran into one of them and spoke to them would they understand what I'm saying? Is it common for Norwegians to also speak English?

I have to admit me (French) and my Swedish friend had a good laugh over your ask.

I’ll answer it seriously instead of the million of ways I could sass you in the hopes it’ll help other people realise how USA-centric (and sometimes “just” English-as-a-first-language-centric) they can be.

English has been one of the most prominent world language for a while now.
It is taught in schools, as a second language, in most countries that do not have it as a first language. It is often required for someone to know English if they want to hold any job in their native country (from being a waiter to practising medicine). When two people from different countries that do not have English as a first language want to communicate, they will often do so in English: since most people speak it already.

The USA is an economic power that influences the entire world. From its politics to its pop culture, the country dominates. People in Europe often consume more media coming from the USA (and the UK) than from their own country (this is from my personal observations). We are used to hearing English.
The internet is mainly in English too, for the reasons I listed above: it’s easier for people of different nationalities to talk to each other in English. You also have more online dictionaries that translate your native tongue to English than to other languages.
When Isak googles his questions about being gay, it is in English. Because if he were to google them in Norwegian, he would get much less results. It’s as simple as that.

Everywhere you go (apart from rural areas) you’re sure to find people who will speak English. We’re knee-deep in the English language and have been since we were born.

The fact that this is news to you is a baffling show of how USA-centric Americans can be.
How were you able to live your life without realising how much your language and country influences the rest of the world?
It almost seems like other countries seem to exist more to us than to you.
Because, since we were little, we were taught that we needed to speak other languages to be understood outside of our borders. We were taught about the English and American culture in text books and in our movies and novels. (I remember making an independent bookseller in France sweat when I asked him if he knew of any funny novel not written originally in English) We watch Disney Channel shows and are supposed to understand the intricacies of the American school system and what cheerleaders even are.

So yes, people in Norway (like mostly everywhere else) speak English.
They understand English. They listen to songs in English.
English slips into their everyday language and they’ll say things like “Jesus Christ!” with an American pronunciation because they heard it so much in American movies. Things like “I read it last week” just because the phrase comes to them this way. Things like “I know what you’re playing” because, again, it comes this way naturally and maybe they heard it on a TV show and it stuck and they know the reference will be shared (or that, at least, the English will be understood).
They’ll post on Instagram in English because they’ll want their text to be understood worldwide.

See, French is my first language, and yet I wrote all of this in English without the help of a dictionary. Most of the Europeans in the SKAM fandom communicate with each other in English on the daily.

I hope this answers your question. And I hope Americans start looking outside of their borders without needing to be prompted every single time.

I KNOW YOU’RE WONDERING WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THIS SCENE JUST LIKE I AM.

KNOW HOW TO FIND OUT?

WATCH THE DAMN SHOW.

THE RATINGS FOR ANDI MACK HAVING BEEN DROPPING THIS SEASON. THIS IS A REALLY GREAT SHOW THAT DESERVES TO BE DOING WELL. IF YOU’RE PUTTING OFF WATCHING IT BECAUSE WE HAVEN’T SEEN MUCH OF CYRUS COMING TO TERMS WITH HIS SEXUALITY, BE. PATIENT. IT’S COMING. IT WILL HAPPEN. TRUST THE SHOW.

PROMOTE THE SHOW AS MUCH AS YOU CAN PEOPLE. AND PLEASE, TUNE IN TOMORROW AND WATCH THE SHOW ON DISNEY CHANNEL.

SAVE ANDI MACK, GUYS. THIS SHOW DESERVES BETTER.

OKAY GUYS I NOTICED SOMETHING

So in the special commentary they put on DEH’s youtube channel had a comment from King Lacamoire saying “That ambient guitar is what I call the ‘lying sound’. It appears as a motif throughout the show when Evan is making something up.” So, in For Forever, we hear it after Evan says “and he’s come to get me/and everything’s okay.” Makes sense.

But in Words fail, we get the line “and you think everybody wants it/needs it/a little bit, too”.

And guess what comes after

That frickin ambient guitar.

Evan’s lying. He can’t convince himself that this situation is helping anyone. I don’t know why but this makes me incredibly sad.
