I stayed up until 1:30 am to finish all of my homework for today’s 2 classes because I have an 8 am today. I am currently in the middle of a long lasting flare up and feel like shit and didn’t know how I’d make it. Class at 8 am is cancelled. THANK YOU JESUS HOLY SHIT YES. TEARS. Now sleep.
Of course. I need to go to school to finish a project before class because I don’t have helvetica on my computer. So naturally, my gut has decided it’s going to be a fucking ass today. Thanks, sorry for feeding you fruit, excuse me.
i’m honestly one of those people that are just there like yeah i have friends and people talk to me but i’m nobody’s favorite person and nobody looks forward to talking to me everyday or anything and it sucks
Do you know when you eat too much or drink too much or expose yourself to the sun for too long in the summer and you need to recover? well yeah it’s the same for me when I hang out with people, it’s not that I dislike being surrounded by people and friends and go to parties, it’s just that after a while of being around I MUST go home and collapse on my bed until I’m prepared again to see and interact with humanity
Favorite Album: hmm. hmmmmmm. I want to say Total Life Forever because that’s what it was for a long time, but I’ve been listening to a lot of Holy Fire lately and I think that’s what I’m leaning towards.
Favorite Album Cover: Holy Fire. I was the horse obsessed child, so this band is totally appropriate and has been meant to be for me… years and years in the making- I’ve also always been naturally drawn to water. That being said, the cover obviously consists of horses and water.
Favorite Song From Antidotes: The French Open, Red Socks Pugie, and Electric Bloom.
Favorite Song From Total Life Forever: Blue Blood, Spanish Sahara, What Remains.
Favorite Song From Holy Fire: Jesus Christ, this one’s hard… basically, tracks 6-11 with Milk & Black Spiders being at the top.
Favorite Song (if you can choose): Milk & Black Spiders
Least Favorite Song: Eh. I guess Everytime. Probably. Or something off of Antidotes towards the end of the record?
Favorite Music Video: Spanish Sahara. I love the visual contrast of Yannis and the snow, but most of all, the concept behind it. Jesus. Yes.
Oh dear God. Well. I probably won’t remember to include all of them, but to start, pretty much everything in Spanish Sahara, I know it’s one of their most popular singles, but holy shit, autobiographical and appropriate for me in all the ways. I fucking love how he including the greek furies, so, so, good. “Choir of furies” and “still that summer I cannot bear” have to be my very most favorite lines.
Milk and Black Spiders- I’ve spent my summers in and by the ocean, the green he is speaking about… like broken coke bottle green, it’s exactly the right color description. The imagery is so damn satisfying here, hence my username: "green, broken glass ocean / you break me, slow motion.”
The last part of Late Night, holy shit, yes.
"Did you throw your heart away?
Oh I know just what I say
Through the phone cord; it can wait
We’ve still got time to say.
And I know you ran away,
oh I know but I’m feeling okay
And I found love and fear won’t go,
and I found love and feeling won’t go
See you walk away, feeling okay now,
There are more bits and pieces, but I’ll leave you with those.
Favorite Band Member: Yanbag. From the beginning I’ve been gravitated towards him in a strange way and he reminds me so much of my boy. Physically, emotionally- in some ways. He’s so interesting to try to figure out and understand- obviously from a non-personal level, but still. I feel like there are a lot of intricacies within him and he’s so fucking smart (and sassy) and has my kind of sarcasm. He’s one of those people who is just unique without seeming to knowing it or having to try. He puts on a tough face, but I can see right through it- he’s a big emotional softie who’s been through a lot of shit and seems to just want to find a safe person to cling to. He’s vulnerable, he’s also in the spotlight being who he is, and I think he handles it so, so well. He doesn’t give away too much information about his personal life, and I’ve always admired those in similar positions who do that. I see so much of myself in him and I have always tried to have the emotionless exterior shell to hide what’s underneath because I’ve been fucked over so many times by people and life situations. He seems to have the same coping mechanisms that I do, psychologically- not substance abuse speaking, seeing that my stomach is so fucked out I probably could live that life anyway without feeling 82,452,462 times worse than usual. I just really want to hug him for a few years and fluff his hair, and never allow him to have sad feels.
Favorite Interview: "Whenever we get near water, it gets pretty crazy." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6t_0Ki_VUk I love this one, it feels like you’re just watching in on Yannis and Jimmy happily chatting.
I also have another big favorite, but I can’t find it right now.
How and when did you discover them?: A friend in high school had been listening to them since 2010, he’d wear their t-shirts frequently. I can’t pinpoint exactly when I started listening to them, but it was a while after that.
Have you seen them live? If so what was the best moment?: Hell no. They don’t come to Detroit. Ever. And when they do- I’m never in the same state.
Have you ever met the band or interacted with them on social media?: No -__- I’d like to talk to Yannis and share pictures of our cats because that would be cute all around. The only way to do this would probably be through Issy’s instragram, but I have yet to follow her because she’d look at who I follow and see the boys. I don’t want it to seem like I’m just following her because of them. It’s just weird to me. I’d feel bad.
It’s taken me like nine zillion years to post this because of reasons, but whentheworldcomestogether tagged me and I’m pretty sure all y’all have taken this already, so I won’t tag anyone.
