Yeah, Taylor said they all went together, rented a car and stayed at a Holiday Inn. I always thought that picture was interesting because I’m pretty sure it was from her first trip there and you can tell she was actually 12 when she went and not 11 like she always says she was just like the article about her singing the national anthem at the 76er’s game says because she looks exactly the same age as when she did that since it was only like a week or two before (in late March over spring break) that she went.

It makes me think Picture to burn could be about him because you can tell REVENGE was written about the same guy and in the song she said she prank called him with her friends. Plus they were only written a few months before. I’d always wondered who it was about and now thanks to that old MySpace comment I might know! There’s another one about a guy name Grant Wood who she found out can play guitar which makes me think I’d lie is about him and I’m pretty sure on that one but I can’t prove it because I don’t know his birthday!

Taylor said that last fact herself. She said in an interview that she had about 20 songs and Scott said, "The album's done, good job." But she said "I felt like it was too similar to my last three so I went back to the studio." [paraphrasing]...I do research my facts, you know.

I believe you. I know the interview you’re talking about but that was my point. Scott thought she was done, she didn’t. She knew she wasn’t done yet so she kept writing and it ended up differently once she wrote Red and her sound started to change. I even remember him saying he had to tell her to stop writing with Red whereas with Speak now she just stopped writing on her own when it was done. It’s not that your fact is wrong it’s just more the way you worded it because you said she was going to finish it with those songs back then and changed her mind but I was just pointing out that she probably wasn’t planning on finishing it just yet at the time, that’s why she kept writing for it and ended up with the songs that are on there now. Scott just thought she was done because she already had so many songs for it. But she didn’t think so. I’m being not-picky, I know. I was just pointing that out.

I'm pretty sure Taylor wrote the song Red at the end of 2011 when she tweeted that picture of red shoes in the studios (on her birthday). Plus, Taylor said that the idea for the album changed once she wrote that song.

I’m pretty sure she wrote it long before that. Like almost a year before. It is about Jake after all and she said she wrote it early on. I’m not even sure the shoes were a clue to be honest. She was obviously liking the color at the time anyway so that could’ve been coincidental as well. That’s why I don’t really believe the whole Roses theory just yet even though it pops up all the time. And yes, I know the song changed the direction of the album, I just don’t think she felt she was done with it that early and then decided to change it. I think she was still working on it (because it was so early on) and then it changed directions because that happens to her all the time, that’s why she usually throws out her earlier stuff, because it’s too similar to her last album and she always likes her newer stuff better so she keeps writing the whole time. That’s why we get last minute additions on every album.

I find that hard to believe. She wrote Red so early on in the process (late 2010 early 2011) that she couldn’t have felt like she was done with the album because she keeps writing the entire time and usually throws out most of the stuff she writes in the first year anyway (she said this time was the first time she came upon a new sound so quickly) specifically because it’s too similar to her last album. She said Red took a turn after the song was written though because it was originally going in a different direction so I think what happened was she had 20 songs that she had written for it that she thought might end up on there but I’m sure she knew by the end of it most of them still wouldn’t because she always writes more songs that she likes better even if she liked those at the time and I think knowing that (especially if it was still so similar to Speak now) she wouldn’t have thought she was done with an album so early on. We were never going to hear those songs. There’s always that many that we don’t hear sadly. :( She’s kind of a workaholic anyway so I think even if she did she’d have waited anyway to see if she wrote anything that was better because she likes to give herself two full years to make an album and she usually keeps writing them until the summer when she releases them in October. That’s why I never believed the rumors about this album  coming out early because I think even if she has a bunch of songs and a new sound already she’ll wait to release it at the same time as the others (even if she was totally done with it) because not only would she still be on tour but there’s business reasons she releases all her albums around that time. If there weren’t then they’d all have been released whenever she wanted them to be. It’s for award show nominations and better sales. That’s why she usually releases them on a Monday too. All artists do stuff like that.

Isn’t that the one that the movie about Joni Mitchell that she was supposedly going to be in was based off of? That’s interesting. I think what happened is she was going to do it but they didn’t end up making the movie because of lack of funding or because they didn’t get the approval of the movie studio or whatever. Stuff like that happens all the time. That’s what happened with the movie she was going to be in as a kid. Can you imagine how different things would be if everyone knew her as an actress instead of a musician? haha

iwalkunderapinksky asked:

Omg Alyssa, you're always commenting on my facts like "I think you've posted this before." I assure you, I check over my facts dozens of times before putting them in the queue. I don't think I've ever posted a fact twice. It's okay. xD

Good to know, haha I don’t mean to be nit-picky I just always remember if I’ve seen something before and I think I just keep getting confused by the ones that I submitted to you that someone sent me because I remember seeing them but they’re not ones I came up with. The girl who sent them to me pointed that out to me last time I thought you posted one twice. Sometimes you do have very similar ones though, just none with the same exact wording of the same exact fact. But yeah, I just mention it when I think I’ve seen it posted before so you don’t end up with doubles. Not that anyone other than me would notice with how many facts you have up. lol There’s almost 1300!
