My best Vine ever. My only good Vine.
welp this is why i woke up today i guess
I can’t shop there anyway (sorry I’m not super tiny, guys), but after reading this I never will. I’m apparently not one of the people they market to, so why bother? I think I’ll keep my size 12/14 (women’s) jeans, thanks.
It’s one thing to practice this process — that makes you an asshole, certainly — but it’s a totally different thing to say it out loud. That gives people more reasons not to shop at your already failing stores..
Isn’t this curious? #BTR001 #letthespeculationbegin
I would maybe try to talk to girls but then again I feel kinda sick so I might as well just order Chinese food and go to bed.
Another nice friends picture from this weekend. When did we get decent at taking photos together? @sami_meow @lnizdamomb @thatkidmattyd
As I’m thinking about the review I am going to write for this album, I’ve been debating whether I should actually compare it to anything. They’ve progressed enough that they don’t really need comparisons anymore. They sound like themselves. But even a band that completely has its own persona has bits and pieces of outside forces that have been fused into a final product.
Spine / skeleton / bones / whatever: This was the hardest part but I’ll go with The Starting Line. Always been a popular (maybe some would say lazy) comparison, but can’t really deny its broad accuracies.
Brain: The Get Up Kids’ Something To Write Home About. The only record I would bother “recommend if you like-ing” The Greatest Generation to…and even here the comparison isn’t all that close. The Wonder Years are themselves.
Heartbeat / lifeblood: Midwestern emo. You’ll have to hear the album to understand this one, but it’s in the guitars and the two- and three-part vocal melodies.
Persona / outward appearance: Probably New Found Glory. On the outside and put simply, they’re still a pop-punk band. Obvious enough when you watch them live.
Soul / inward drive: Motion City Soundtrack and Bayside. The record doesn’t sound like these bands, but similar to them, The Wonder Years are consistently making records that sound like The Wonder Years with just enough new stuff to keep us massively intrigued. And they keep getting better.
Tip for all my student readers: if you’re too lazy to use a bibliography creator like NoodleBib or RefWorks, let Google generate your bibliography entries for you. All you have to do is google the article/book title in Google Scholar, click “cite” at the bottom of the search result, and copy either the MLA, APA, or Chicago cite into your word document.
If I hadn’t already graduated this would be my favorite life hack ever.
You’re kind of tired of Punk Goes Pop 1-27 every year aren’t you? Well, we are too. If we look back a little deeper in the past, the series of releases from Fearless Records used to be a little less predictable and a lot better quality wise. We thought it would be fun to do a new PropertyOfZack Friday Discussion on Punk Goes..We’d Actually Like with many different routes the series could, and hopefully will, take in the future. Check out our Discussion below and feel free to reblog with some of your suggestions as well!
Punk Goes Disney
I mean, come the fuck on. How has this not happened yet? We know what All Time Low is picking — “Aladdin.” Disney songs are built with insanely catchy melodies and they’re either super inspirational or extremely sad. So between the posi pop-punk bands and the sad emo acts (sup, Evan Weiss?), the Disney catalog is ripe for the picking. I want to see The Wonder Years cover that Phil Collins song from Tarzan. I want to see Polar Bear Club or The Menzingers offer their take on an Elton John song from The Lion King. Can I get Hayley Williams and Paramore doing a Little Mermaid jawn? This is the greatest idea I’ve ever come up with in my 22 years on this planet. PS: Fearless Records, for real, I’m officially calling dibs on this idea and would like royalties if (read: when) you cash in on it. - Thomas Nassiff
This has been happening for all of time but never “officially.” Throwing $10,000 to Breathe Carolina to cover “Angels We Have Heard on High” might seem stupid (because it is) — especially since no one’s doing that track better than Relient K already did — so let’s make sure to choose these bands carefully. Like Moths To Flames? Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!? Sorry dudes, sit this one out. We need to enlist poppy bands or soulful crooners to whisper sweet Christmas nothings into my iPod headphones.
So I want Nate Ruess and fun. tackling “Jingle Bells.” I want Brian Fallon and The Gaslight Anthem (or Horrible Crowes, dude, whatever, I’m just a slave4u) showing me their chops on “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” (while I weep softly, gently, alone in the background). I want Patrick Stump and Fall Out Boy doing “Santa Claus Is Comi-” …Nevermind. Just let me get a reprise of “Yule Shoot Yr Eye Out.” - Thomas Nassiff
Fun feature - I contributed the two above!
