thenewtrencher said: Yeah I guess you're the only pentaholic (did I spell that right?) that I really know, so could you like fill me in on what's happening with the fandom, the band, music and shit like albums and what songs are on them, and all that jazz or at least a little, please? You couldn't give me too much info, all I've done so far is just watch the same like 12 videos on youtube. Thank you so much for the warm welcome to the fandom!!
Okay, sit tight cuz this is probably gonna get lengthy (I was right, it did)
- What’s a Pentatonix?
Pentatonix is an a cappella quintet made up of the biggest dweebs on the planet. If you can spare 7 minutes (in addition to the time spent reading this wall of text), here is a lovely little intro video they made describing how the group got together and what they are about. But let me expand a bit on their background.
- The Humble Beginnings
If you didn’t already know, Pentatonix formed in order to compete in the Sing-Off Season 3 in 2011. Scott, Mitch, and Kirstie wanted to compete as a trio, but they were advised to add Kevin and Avi to the mix. More on that later! Anyways, they auditioned for the show, and made it through. And long story short THEY RIPPED THE COMPETITION TO SHREDS.
No but for real go and watch them (have tissues ready)(also that vid i linked includes a little intro to them, their performance, and what the judges said)
Now watch their second performance, then their third. WATCH ALL OF THEM OKAY. I PROMISE I’LL STILL BE HERE WHEN YOU GET BACK.
- The Queen, Princess, Spongebob, Meat & Potatoes
Yes it was absolutely necessary for me to use that picture of him.
MITCH IS AN ABSOLUTE ANGEL. He will slay you with his high notes and his sass.
do not call her Kristie I sWeaR to G DO
She is an actual Disney princess. (shut up I’m not lying). She is SO humble and sweet and just ugh get out of my face already.
LOOKk AT HI S FUKCiGN FAcE
Scott is the fucking dorkiest of dorks on the planet. Like, no other. BUT HE IS ALSO REALLY HOT AND IT ISN’T FAIR???
Also sorry to bear the bad news but he’s taken by this sexy mofo
LOOK HOW BADASS THAT PICTURE IS OMG.
Kevin is undoubtedly the most talented member of PTX. He can beatbox, play cello, play cello and beatbox (watch that right now). Did I mention he is also fluent in Mandarin Chinese?
Time to talk about this sexy bass man!
His voice shakes the ground. He loves BBQ. He believes in dragons (don’t we all?). His hips never lie.
I want him inside me.
- The Musics
I trust you’ve heard what they’re about by now lol
But just in case, here’s their discography:
PTX, Vol. I
PTX, Vol. II
PTXmas Deluxe Edition
PTX, Vol. III
That’s Christmas To Me (coming soon!)
Also they’ve released several singles.
They have original songs! A lot! And really good too!
Sometimes Kevin plays cello in their covers! Rad!
In general they make really really pleasant things for your ears!
FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY GO SEE THESE ABSOLUTE KIWIS LIVE WHEN THEY ANNOUNCE THEIR NEXT TOUR.
They are arguably better live than in the studio! (I can vouch!)
Also if you have money buy a VIP ticket it’s so worth it.
- The Fandom
I trust you’ve had a little taste of what we are like by now. And it looks like you’ve stuck around so that’s a good sign!
Let’s be real though leaving isn’t an option.
But yeah our community has grown so much in the past few months! Like, when I started this blog not even a year ago there were only a few blogs partially dedicated to ptx. But now the tag is active daily!
In the Pentatonix tag you can find edits, art, fanfic,
painful sobbing, hugs and happiness, etc. etc.
Yes, good things!
Oh and yes you spelled Pentaholic correctly :)
Have fun letting five people ruin your life!
are you a boy? your clothes are boy clothes.
are you a girl? your clothes are girl clothes.
are you outside the binary of boy and girl? so are your clothes.
did someone just tell you your clothes don’t match your gender identity? they are a trashcan and their clothes are trashcan clothes.
Or in the words of Eddie Izzard..
Because this cannot be reblogged enough.
Screaming silently in adoration

Hey let’s do this
REBLOG I TELL YOU
I reblog this every time it’s on my dash
Fuck this post
Fuck this post so much.
You want a “Why not?”
How about the way your best friend’s older sister will throw up by the side of the road because she’s crying so hard
How about the way your best friend will sob for weeks in her showers, in her bedroom, in the bathroom at school
How about the way your mother will cry every time she looks at herself in the mirror and pictures herself bringing you home
How about the way your father’s eyes will NEVER stop mirroring the image of your hanging body
How about the way your boyfriend will sit in his room in silence, unable to eat or sleep, or even to fucking shower, because why would he want to continue without you
How about the way the girl who called you a brother will start crying every time she sees your parents
How about the way your family will sit in your house after the funeral looking blankly at one another, because god knows they can’t find a fucking thing to say that doesn’t just float through the air where you should be walking
How about the way your sister will wake up every morning and see your door and convince herself that you could still be there, just sleeping in your bed
How about the way your ex girlfriend will come over and pull your clothes from the drawers and cry while she holds them desperately to her face to breathe in what’s left of you
Don’t you dare tell me it won’t change things
There may be stars in the sky and wind in the air and sun in the clouds
But without you we do not want them
Don’t you dare be selfish enough to believe you aren’t important to us
So fuck this post
and fuck this romanticism of suicide
and fuck you for leaving my sister to cry in her room when she thinks nobody can hear
bless this reblog
I CANT REBLOG THIS ANY HARDER FUCK.
Every time I see this post, I agree with the image.
And then I read that commentary and it just kicks me right in the heart.
And I put down my blades and I apologise.
Every time I see this post, it saves me
When shows come off their hiatus
this is the best thing i’ve seen all day
OMFG it’s back on my dash
