Mikey; I’m passing the phone to the most narcissistic bitch cause every time we talk about something, he always wanna mention himself like everything is about him
Ashton; Anyway I’m passing the phone to the most moodiest bitch, every time we talk to this hoe, he’s either crying about something or we don’t know which personality we’re going to get
Luke; Dude, fuck you. I’m passing the phone to the most controlling ass bitch, every time I’m in my feelings, he thinks he’s gonna tell me what to do or to get my ass up. I’m tired of you hoe, you ain’t my mother
Mikey; If you didn’t cry so damn much, I wouldn’t have to. Anyway I’m passing the phone to the most secretive bitch in this group cause every time you wanna know something about this bitch or his emotions, he wanna hide and act like he doesn’t know what the fuck that means
Calum; That’s cause it’s my business sweetie, get your own. Anyways I’m passing the phone to the bitch that always wanna fight me every time I don’t express some type of shit
Luke; And what you’re my friend bitch, open up. Anyway I’m passing the phone to the most bougiest bitch in the group
Ashton; Peasants. Anyway I’m passing the phone to the most messiest bitch in this room
Calum; Bitch the only thing messy is your relationship. Anyway I’m passing the phone to the biggest hoe in the group
Mikey; Oh I must of fucked your man too. Anyway we all know who the real hoe is
Me; I know enough about Nirvana to write this Stranger Things fic where Eddie is a gatekeeper b/c of a Tiktok I saw
Me; oh wait, when is Stranger Things S4 set?
Me; *looks up Nirvana's discography to make sure the 5 songs I'm listing were released before then, being confused when all of the albums are listed after 1986*
Me; okay, when did Nirvana become a band then?
Motherfucker, history really just cockblocked me. Welp anachronism route we go.
(also I knew Nirvana was more 90s before writing the fic but this isn't too bad in comparison to what the showrunners have done w/ Winona Ryder being the person on staff keeping track of how accurate everything is music wise)
(also in terms of Stranger Things, I really do hope they rick roll everyone w/ Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up)
Watched the No Shame music video & my brain just kept going ‘damn, can’t believe Mikey’s over here crashing a car and doing this when one of his closest friends just faked his death. But he doesn't know Luke faked his death.'
it's just more of a wtf type music video in terms of literal story compared what it all actually means.
Sorry, felt like talking more bout this
but basically story wise you have;
Calum’s a suburban dad barbecuing
Luke fakes his own death for some unknown reason
Michael crashes a car presumably on the way to a party w/ a group of other people and all of them immediately take photos
Ashton is an eccentric plastic surgeon
But that’s only the video in a literal sense. More so, it’s talking about the effects of fame. Like Calum’s keeping up the Joneses. Ashton’s the beauty standards perpetuated by society—mean look at the Kardashians and how they mold trends. A lot of folks get plastic surgery to rid themselves of a feature they were bullied over while others are addicted to looking like someone else. Just take Oli London for example. Or those people who want to look like Ken and Barbie.
Michael’s part reminds me more of the bystander effect. How you have to specifically tell an individual, ‘hey, you in the red shirt w/ the pink phone, call an ambulance,’ otherwise no one will do it even if the person needing the ambulance is bleeding out.
Lastly Luke seems like to be the whole pinnacle of it, that sometimes fame gets to the point people will fake their own death and start anew to get away from it. Death by absentia if you will.
Probably just spewing shit folks already noticed or it’s all over the place. I always have to ask if how I view their music videos is ‘too Americanized or US-centric.’ Like I have a similar thing I could write for the Teeth music video but Idk if it works seeing as they’re originally from Australia. My main theory for that music video is that each of them individually are experiencing a form of therapy used in the earlier days of U.S psychiatrics.
