I DIDN’T LEARN ABOUT THIS IN DRIVING SCHOOL

THIS IS ALWAYS FUCKING FUNNY
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
Oh man, so I play trombone, and we got this piece called Florentiner Marsch by Julius Fucik, and we saw this
which is 8 fortes. We were shocked until,
that is 24 fortes who the fuck does that
Who does that?
This guy. Take a good look - that is the moustache of a man with nothing to lose.
More like Julius Fuckit
I’m reblogging this for “that is the moustache of a man with nothing to lose”
In other news, Bo Burnham is a gift to man kind.
I like how everyone seems like they’re dead tired and Thor’s just there going
'om nom nom this is a shawarma nom nom nom'
Notice how Clint and Natasha seemed to have appropriated half of each others’ chairs.
and I think Tony is just realizing that he literally died and was scared back to life by the man to his left
and steve, being the senior citizen, is simply nodding off
Also, the dude behind the counter just nonchalantly making shawarma for the goddamn Avengers like they come in every day.

Someone wrote:Re your recent reblog: I don’t actually know what my gender identity is but it’s much closer to cis than anything else I’ve seen on the net, so I basically just go with that. I usually feel like a guy and folks identify me as a guy but I like a particular set of gender-neutral pronouns (ve/ver/vis, which I first discovered in Greg Egan’s science fiction). That said I don’t really care too much about what pronouns people use, and I figure we’re about 200 years away from the kind of advances which would enable my gender identity to be usefully distinguished from cis, so there we are. (Yes I’m kind of transhumanist, why do you ask?)
I was talking to someone older about this, and she remembered attempts to introduce gender-neutral pronouns back in the 70s, which produced yet another set that no one uses. I think part of the problem is that it’s not easy to add new cases. We know about male and female (and I suspect this knowledge is built into the brain for a lot of people), but we don’t have obvious referents for anything else, let alone more than one anything else with distinctions between them.
Overall, I think this is a field where 90% of the problems can be easily solved by the liberal application of Wheaton’s Law to everything in sight. (Except, possibly, genitalia.) “Don’t be a dick.” If someone asks you to use a given set of pronouns, try to do that because it’ll make life easier for them. If someone forgets your pronouns, be mellow about it, because yelling at them won’t help. Just try to be as friendly as you can, and as tolerant as you can, and it doesn’t have to be the biggest thing.
What we need is someone really fucking famous who’s nonbinary to choose one and demand to be addressed as it long enough that it turns into a fad. Then the fad will fade and it’ll just be part of pop culture, then normal culture
