Thank you so much for 600 followers. With all the terrible shit going on in the past couple years, music and AOTY have truly helped me get through a lot of it, and most of that has to do with the wonderful people on this site.

I'd first off like to give a big thank you to @ThomasGuy. He was the very first person I ever consistently talked to about music, and we still converse nearly every day. A thank you to his brother @Andrei too!

Thank you to my sister @julipluseta for trying to listen to ... read more

Welp, that's embarrassing. I'm gonna fall off a cliff, maybe on the way down, I'll find a better question idea

Q&A list idea! A specific question asked to you that's connected somewhat to your PFP!

Favorite bond theme? No wrong answers!
*Death glares at madona* no wrong answers...
Also, unused bond theme count too, I'm not going to put Radiohead down. They already did.

You can choose one or the other, both might be too big

Very few songs are as much of a masterpiece as IFHY. The intro with the synths blaring in the background. As Sam talks about his obsession with Salam, and hatred of wolf. He ends it with a statement of love, and asking for the lights to turn more yellow. He then shows the contrast of his emotions. Much of the song is about this difference. I will kill myself if you leave me, because your so perfect. I smile when I hear your name, and can't start my heart again when your not. If you end up dating wolf, I will stalk you, and ruin your plans so PLEASE STAY. Then comes Pharrell. At his lowest point on the song, Pharrell acts like the pure essence of his words, much like Kanye did on puppet. He states the dicotamy, he wants to hold hands, AND IF HE SEES WOLF, HE MIGHT KILL HIM! it's horribly mentality abusive, but also a perfect song about it. He hates you, but he loves you. Also, that bit at the end with Salam hits hard when you know what's coming next

I hate seeing wolf so under represented, so I'll add a tie of IFHY, and answer.

answer is Tyler at his best when it comes to bashing his Dad. His first verse immediately sets the tone as he showcases his emotional growth. After telling his dad off for leaving, calling him a fag for not staying, and saying he won't give him tickets to his concert, he admits he'd still talk to him if he called. His next verse might be better than the last, as he showcases the humanity of three Odd Future member. Even if it's just an act, the line "Sid might be bipolar, but fuck it, I couldn't call it" hurts to hear. Especially with Sid singing right afterwards. Only to be immediately surpassed by "I would like to tell my grandma, but she's just nostalgia"

"I'll call her, but she won't answer."

"I hope you answer."

I remember hearing somewhere that Tyler's albums feel like movies, and this line is like perfect cinematography. Great song
