Now Playing Tracks


Moving on from 1D to 5SOS makes perfect sense, especially considering how they’re being marketed. With 1D’s merchandise aimed at a very young market and deliberately not being moved away from that age and target group, 5SOS have ‘we’re not a boygroup we’re much cooler and we talk about underwear in our songs (risqué!!!) and we’ve got guitars’ written all over them - which is perfect, really, for the point when liking boygroups simply isn’t something you can openly admit in front of your friends and when ‘they play their own instruments’ is a very important argument. 5SOS are pop and they follow an obvious marketing scheme. There’s absolutely nothing punk about them but, speaking from experience, they’re just loud and pseudo-punk enough to provide the illusion of rebellion. Which is the logical next step after a few years of 1D - who can’t grow up because that would take effort and energy in remarketing from their team when they technically already have the next big hit lined up and ready to go by taking the 1D fandom and entertaining them with a fresh, exciting but still somewhat familiar (livestreams, update accounts, fan mobs, banter between attractive young guys) alternative (and the pre-show clips and videos at 1D concerts are almost all about 5SOS).


He chose the most complicated version of the Bible out there to quote. Christ, but that particular chapter of Proverbs is pretty good. Proverbs in general is a good book, I kind of like King Salomon.

To humans belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue.
All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the Lord.
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.
The Lord works out everything to its proper end—even the wicked for a day of disaster.
The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.
Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided.
When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them.
Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.
The lips of a king speak as an oracle, and his mouth does not betray justice. Honest scales and balances belong to the Lord; all the weights in the bag are of his making. Kings detest wrongdoing, for a throne is established through righteousness. Kings take pleasure in honest lips; they value the one who speaks what is right. A king’s wrath is a messenger of death, but the wise will appease it. When a king’s face brightens, it means life; his favor is like a rain cloud in spring.
How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!
The highway of the upright avoids evil; those who guard their ways preserve their lives.
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
Better to be lowly in spirit along with the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.
Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.
The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction.
Prudence is a fountain of life to the prudent, but folly brings punishment to fools.
The hearts of the wise make their mouths prudent, and their lips promote instruction.
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.
The appetite of laborers works for them; their hunger drives them on.
A scoundrel plots evil, and on their lips it is like a scorching fire.
A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.
A violent person entices their neighbor and leads them down a path that is not good.
Whoever winks with their eye is plotting perversity; whoever purses their lips is bent on evil.
Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness.
Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.
The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.

I like to think that he was reading this. I’m a huge admirer of the Bible when read right.

He used King James version, this is NIV.



2:40 - “Just like he already owned it”

I just watched a whole bunch of other videos of this performance, and while the one above has the best audio, it’s clearly “he” in the others as well. You can always hear the distinction between his “he” and the crowd’s “she.”

There’s not even a sliver of doubt in my mind about this one.
