25 Little Things Stormers Love About Bastille

They're just four dorks in a band!

25 Little Things Stormers Love About Bastille

After selling over 5 million records in the US, being nominated for multiple awards, (and winning some!), and having MASSIVE hits with "Pompeii" and "Good Grief," it's safe to say that Bastille is a major force in indie/alternative pop music.

We all know the songs - "Pompeii" was practically inescapable in 2013 - but true fans (called "stormers") love more than just their catchy radio hits. They love the four (sometimes five) guys behind these songs, too! They're just a bunch of funny, smart, kind nerds!

Here are just twenty-five (of the many) little things Stormers love about Bastille!

1. Dan’s obsession with David Lynch

Look at that David Lynch shirt! He's such a fanboy, he's written multiple songs about the show "Twin Peaks!"

2. Kyle’s obsession with cats

That might be the greatest cat shirt I've ever seen (and he wears a lot of them)!

3. Woody’s hair

Disney Princess-worthy hair!

4. Will’s personality

"They don't call me the granny of rock for nothing." - Will Farquarson, "Help Me Chase Those Seconds" documentary

5. Charlie Barnes

He's just a touring member, not an official band member, but we love him as much as we love the rest of the band! (And he has a brilliant new song out!)

6. All the covers

They're all so brilliant! (But here are my 15 favorites!)

7. Dan’s dancing

It's terrible, but also incredibly adorable!

8. Kyle’s mustache

Look at how majestic it is!

9. When they speak in French

They're a British band, but they're named after a French holiday, so they've been trying to learn French!

10. Dan’s laugh

Any time he laughs, it's adorable, but it's best when he starts giggling while singing.

11. Dan pointing at things

There are so many pictures of him pointing at random things floating around on the internet. What a dork. (And there's a "Twin Peaks" reference with this one!)

12. The acapella version of "Overjoyed"

This particular performance seriously shows how incredibly talented these guys are!

13. Dan’s hair

It's always changing, but it never fails to defy gravity.

14. Dan’s pessimism

"How am I gonna be an optimist about this?"

15. Dan messing up his own lyrics… and lyrics to songs by other artists

He can't remember the lyrics to "Skulls" (one of the most underrated Bastille songs), or "bad_news," and he wrote them! And in the "This Is What You Came For/Bang Bang/I Knew You Were Trouble" mashup, he gets the lyrics to "I Knew You Were Trouble" COMPLETELY wrong. It's okay, Dan, we still love you!

16. Kyle’s overall fabulousness

The ultimate sassmaster.

17. The spinny videos

These videos were seriously one of the best parts of the Wild Wild World Tour! They're so adorable!

18. Will constantly forgetting the songs

"I'm in the band, I swear" - Will Farquarson, probably

19. When Dan drums

Just one of the many reasons "Of the Night" is one of the best songs to hear live!

20. The way Dan runs

It's adorable and hilarious!

21. The "Glory" music video

A cinematic masterpiece!

22. Will’s sarcasm

He's practically always like this. It's the best!

23. Their friendship

They're all actually super close friends! There's usually at least one hug during live shows! It's wonderful!

24. When Dan does the tip-toe thing while singing high notes

He stands on his toes anytime he sings a high note, and it's the most precious thing ever.

25. The band’s overall adorableness

Just look at them! How can you not love them?!

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."
