(I don’t think it’s a drama really. Just someone reposted a gifest of mine aaaages ago (like over a year or something), and the other day a fairly popular blog I follow reblogged it and it like doubled its notes, so I asked them if they could delete the reblog of the repost. And they did. And reblogged the original from me too! But I noticed a couple of people in the notes of the ask I sent the blog saying the things that I capped into my previous post. Which are perfectly valid really, cos yeah it’s not my content and it doesn’t matter, but still, better to not have reposts of things. Just cos?)
:D Idk how I knew. You just seemed similar!
Hmm the videos, I don’t have any full songs. I just have little clips of various sections. I might post one later today when I’ve watched through them. If tumblr wants to cooperated. (And if they’re any good tbh, cos they might be awful quality!)
:D Yay Ed.
He opened with I’m A Mess. Which was fun because it’s probably my favourite off the album. (Aside from maybe Don’t.) (But I actually prefer this live version to the actual album version tbh atm.) (I think you’re the Ed Sheeran anon from before :D so you already know this but anyway!! :D)
I don’t think that was my favourite song though. Neither of those.
I think live my favourites were probably Bloodstream (cos he made everyone do a bopping thing with their hands which while I didn’t join in was fun to watch) or The City (which is weird cos it wouldn’t be high on my list of favourites really for the album version; it would be like mid-way down tbh probably), or maybe Tenerife Sea (another odd one cos from X that would be near the bottom in my preferential rank). Also obviously You Need Me, I Don’t Need You. Because that is just the best live (I’ve seen youtube videos of it live so I knew it would be good tbh.)
The best thing though was the start of almost every song where he was setting up all the backing bits on the loop pedal. Because that was awesome to watch. The construction of all the little bits. It was the best. And also he broke some guitar strings. I’d say about 3 throughout the night. I liked that and I’m not sure why.
ALSO I liked how it was just him the whole 1 hour 50 minutes without any backing dancers/musicians, or any backing track. Everything was made live with just the guitar. Which was awesome and I don’t think I expected that. And the staging was so simple. Just 2 mics and 3 little 50cm high ish blocks in the middle of the stage that he hopped on and off occasionally.
I was glad I wasn’t right at the back though tbh cos he was only using little screens behind the main stage instead of the two massive ones that are often on on either side of the stage. And often the little screens he had had like video segments or fancy graphics on, which would mean for the people far away they’d have a hard time really seeing much. He should have had the bigger screens turned on imo.
Lol long post. I did some videos which I still have to look through. Then I bet I’ll have a deffo on my favourite(s) of the songs!
Also, Anon, I was wondering. Presuming you are the Ed anon from before, and given that the album’s been out for long enough now to have made educated and accurate decisions, what conclusions have you drawn as your actual favourites and least favourites from the tracklist?! LET ME KNOW TBH. :D
(Thank you, Anon. It was really good. Ed was there and everything.)
I am! I know! :D
It’s probably best you aren’t coming though, otherwise your dream may be some kind of prophecy and that wouldn’t be good.
I do like pasta. Pasta is in my top 5 foods tbh.
Not much exciting is happening currently. But tomorrow I’m going to see Ed Sheeran so yk life could be duller. (I’m very excited :D)
Hi, Anon, I’m OK! How are *you*?!!
I just woke up. I’m rather cold. Or at least my feet are. I had a dream about burning capellini and sticking it to the pan 3 tbh.
I don’t think anything *happened* per se. It just kinda died down a bit and fewer fics got uploaded and fewer gifs/other creations were going on on tumblr. And yeah. I think cos of that (or causing that - probably a bit of both) people got less interested and it sorta died off for the most part. And do you mean you missed out on stuff or? You went away and came back and realised you missed out on the cest? Or maybe you’re one of the Jedwards contacting me tbh cos you’ve finally got tumblr and wanted to get involved in the cest shipping but then realised that you’re a bit late to the partay. Condolences in that case tbh xx
I haven’t! I’ve just had a flick through all my Ed songs now and I still don’t know. It’s like the boppy beat underneath it, and the hm. I think the “hold ya” and “boat” words early on. Those kind of areas. I wonder if it’s cos the tune on the “boat” word is the same as the little tune on “shoulder” in Wake Me Up. Maybe that’s part of it. But the more I listen to it to try to work it out, the most it becomes its own song and so the harder it gets. :D
Hm. I don’t mind names too much. And he was pretty nice about Nina I think. But yeah that does make sense.
I had an issue yesterday tbh where my iTunes just deleted the whole album randomly. But I’ve got it back now and fixed the problem I think. It was very weird.
Hmm, idk about *don’t like* cos I quite like all of them. There aren’t any that I’m going to delete. Least favourites though would be Nina (and I think that’s partly influenced by the name just cos I don’t really like the name Nina and that’s probably cos I really didn’t like Nina from Being Human :D), and then The Man and Take It Back, cos they’re more rappy. Although they will probably grow on me and possibly end up being favourites over time tbh cos that generally happens to me with those kind of songs.
Photograph is another favourite though tbh.
And Shirtsleeves I think sounds very reminiscent of another of his songs. Part of the melody in the verse. Very similar to something older. But I’ve not worked out which one yet.
WHAT ABOUT YOU WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVOURITES?!?! :D
I haven’t got it yet but I plan to! I will probably get around to it later this week tbh. Then I shall let you know. What do you think? What are your top 3 songs from it?! (Then I know which ones to pay attention to first :D)
:D Dedication checking tags! Awards tbh. Yay Lion King.
Oh and also do you track your url? Like track hayles45. Cos I tag asks from people with their url and although not everyone does, a lot of people do, so that might make finding ask answers easier! :D
:D Although tbh I would say while *some* might have been less than 100% on point, there were many very specific ones. I even quoted texts verbatim tbh and that took effort cos I had to get up and go all they way over to my phone to check. Dedication right there. I have a sneeze.
It does! I love your post tbh cos I’m not entirely sure I noticed that direct mother parallel before either. I always took Simba’s reaction to Nala’s mother comment as being like, for the first time in ages he’s being made to think about what he’s left behind and who he’s left behind, never really that he was remembering Scar’s guilt-tripping/scaring comment. But that’s an interesting take on it and I quite like it.
But yeah. To me Nala definitely wasn’t being especially positive, like ooh your mother will be so happy! To me she was like your mother will be a) surprised but mostly b) kinda disappointed that you’d left her and yet you’re still alive, like you’ve been here all this time and abandoned her. But then on top of that Nala’s just so excited about everything the excitement comes through and covers a bit of that so it seems more positive than I think she’s thinking it is cos she’s just so giddy about this new news about him being alive. :D
Also lol how did you read the tags? Like did you see a reblog and go check out the post specifically or do you have an extensionny thing to give you dash notifs of tags added to reblogs of your things? Cos I never think creators/whoever I reblogged from would read tags!!
