Dear Mom and Dad,
This is what happiness looks like. Sorry you were so miserable in your own lives that you couldn’t allow me a chance at my own. I went out and found it anyway. I miss you, and will miss you even more this holiday season since you won’t allow me to come back home unless I have a woman on my arm. Oh by the way, we’ll still be using the family recipe for the stuffing, I’m sure it’ll be a hit with our friends.
Your son, his boyfriend, and our spoiled cat
this deserves a million notes omfg
I think about how it’s socially acceptable for girls to admire and compliment other girls but not for guys to do the same.
Truthfully, most guys can recognize when another guy looks good, otherwise how would you know your competition?
Awhile ago I decided I was going to be myself and be open about my thoughts and feelings no matter what criticism or ignorant scrutiny I gained from outside opinion.
Guys can be emotional, expressive, caring, dress well, be masculine and support gay people without having to be gay themselves.
People want to believe in a society that isn’t homophobic or people aren’t afraid to express themselves YET when they encounter someone truly embodying that belief, they question if it’s real and their integrity.
It sucks being judged and I try to make sure I do it anyway to set a good example because people appreciate it.
I am trying to be expressive as possible and not be a hypocrite of the equality I promote.
I am not a gay male, but I am not homophobic either.
I AM THE FUCKING FUTURE.
im guilty and I need to do better
If you don’t like piercings, don’t get any.
If you don’t like tattoos, don’t get any.
If you don’t agree with abortions, don’t get one.
If you don’t like gay marriage, don’t marry your same gender.
If you don’t like something, don’t do it.
But DO NOT prevent someone else from doing it just because you don’t like it.
Fun Story: My director kept telling me and my tenor sax buddy to play softer. No matter what we did, it wasn’t soft enough for him. So getting frustrated, I told my buddy “Dont play this time. Just fake it”
Our Band Director then informed us we sounded perfect.
To my readers: “p” means quiet, “pp” means really quiet. I’ve never seen “pppp” before haha.
On the contrast, “f” means loud, and “ffff” probably means so loud you go unconscious.
I had ffff in a piece once and my conductor told me to play as loudly as physically possible without falling off my chair…
Me and my trombone buddies had “ffff” and he sat next to me and played so hard that he fell out of his chair.
The lengths we go for music.
Okay yeah so I play the bass clarinet and the amount of air you have to move and the stiffness of the reed means it only has two settings and that is loud and louder, with an optional LOUDEST that includes a 50% probability of HORRIBLE CROAKING NOISE which is the bass equivalent of the ubiquitous clarinet shriek.
One day, when I was in concert band in high school, we got a new piece handed out for the first time, and there was a strange little commotion back in the tuba section — whispering, and pointing at something in the music, and swatting at each other’s hands all shhh don’t call attention to it. And although they did attract the attention of basically everyone else in the band, they managed to avoid being noticed by the band director, who gave us a few minutes to look over our parts and then said, “All right, let’s run through it up to section A.”
And here we are, cheerfully playing along, sounding reasonably competent — but everyone, when they have the attention to spare, is keeping an eye on the tuba players. They don’t come in for the first eight measures or so, and then when they do come in, what we see is:
[reeeeeeally deep breath]
[COLOSSAL FOGHORN NOISE]
The entire band stops dead, in the cacophonous kind of way that a band stops when it hasn’t actually been cued to stop. The band director doesn’t even say anything, just looks straight back at the tubas and makes a helpless sort of why gesture.
In unison, the tuba players defend themselves: “THERE WERE FOUR F’S.”
FFFF is not really a rational dynamic marking for any instrument, but for the love of all that is holy why would you put it in a tuba part.
This is the best band post
Everyone else go home
Fluent in German, Japanese, British Sign Language. He can speak (but…
Here in the Netherlands, there are several different dialects (even though it’s a small country) and even a part of the country which has its own language (Frysian). Is someone from the southmost point of the country talks in their own dialect to me, I can’t understand him. Same goes for people from the east side of the country. So yeah…
Because the ballet tag features too many people of only one body type. Let’s not pretend you need to be a certain weight to be able to perform fouetté en tournant.
This is for my mom, who told me when I was seven years old that I was too fat to be a ballerina.
How badass is this woman. OMG. She is balancing more than 200 lbs on one toe.
That is skill, ladies and gents.
