I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.

viva la vida is the coldplay song that makes me angriest because, ugh, i actually sort of like it, ugh. i keep waiting for my ideal perfect cover to come and sweep away all the mr. gwyneth paltrow horribleness of the actual track and just highlight the inexplicably affecting melody and make the lyrics go from infuriatingly bullshit to charmingly bullshit. the staten island elementary school did it and that was a beautiful moment. gaga actually did a piano cover which was pretty close to my imaginary regina spektor piano cover which i still think would be great, and it’s probably in my top 5 favorite things lady gaga has accomplished on this earth. she changes the lyrics to something like “be my chris, and i’ll be your gwyneth,” which fine, is sort of funny.
anyway, baby one direction (??? how can they be baby one direction when current one direction is still babies????) on the x-factor semifinals isn’t my ideal perfect cover, but like, if they brought this shit to a studio i would listen to it for days. but mostly, i just want to say that the gorgeously exuberant and wildly inappropriate-to-the-music smiles sported by, well, all of them, to some extent but in particular the elfy one, with the shiny hair? — that’s magic to me. look at him, he is so happy to be here, he is so happy to be singing this bullshit great song with its stupid nonsense lyrics. “happy to be here” and “incongruously soulful” are like basically the only two one direction emotions, is that correct? am i right about that? god, he’s grinning like a fucking cheerleader, all through this bullshit song i love, this is so magical and beautiful, thank you strange twelve-year-old british elf.
baby’s first contagion blogging, december 8, 2012. louis girl from the start, louis girl forever.
i am F A S C I N A T E D by x-factor bootcamp liam, because it lets us see a side of him that he really doesn’t show to the world these days but i think is absolutely still a huge part of who he is. i think that if you want to talk about why liam and louis didn’t get on on the x-factor, about daddy direction back when louis meant that name a lot less affectionately than he means it now, i think boot camp liam is the place to start, because he’s so fucking serious. it’s just mind-boggling trying to reconcile the dumb sexy teddy bear granola bar fireman beefcake cuddlemonster cheerful dweebus we know with this little type-A baby… well, dweebus, but a different kind of dweebus.
i mean some things are the same — he is obviously terrified here, and obviously desperately fighting to keep it hidden. but he’s so much more normal, in an uninteresting way. i always use the justin bieber wannabe line when i’m being mean about bb liam (sry bb liam) because, like, look at that hair, but also because isn’t this kind of what made justin bieber so tiresome after a while? he just took it so seriousleh, to quote the tommo. he’s so not one direction here. that’s what i mean. i mean he looks like he belongs on reality tv and stupid photo shoots and he does not at all seem to be a part of this band he got thrown into.
i guess i mean - we still see liam talking about what he’s got to prove, about not wanting to let people down or lose his chance, with that characteristic self-deprecating smile, or half-nervous laugh. but, like, where is the smile??? where is the laugh??? i guess it’s just weird to me to contemplate a liam payne who was just as screwed up and insecure, more so, and on top of that, didn’t even laugh. and i feel really bad for bb liam but if we are being honest and what is even the POINT of 1D blogging if not to be honest, i also feel really bad for bb louis tomlinson who was confronted with that as a creature he had to work with, like, can you imagine?

I love bad bitches, that’s my fuckin’ problem.
