"I like the slash, and I think I like it because I feel there are so many people who are under-represented - or not represented at all - in mainstream Hollywood entertainment. I really enjoy the fan fiction that embraces character and themes that showcase those people - their love, their desires, their passions.
"I think that’s really cool - and I hope the show as it continues embraces that more, because that’s an opportunity to tell stories that other people might not be familiar with. I mean, there’s slash of me and Ichabod… that’s like, ‘What?!’ and then I read it and it was really well-written.
"I get it - it’s another way to go but it’s no less valid than what we’re doing and it’s certainly interesting, so I really get a kick out of that. To read fan fiction and to see fan art and to watch other people’s artistry paint different colors on top of what we’re doing… how can you be mad at that? That’s just completely awesome!"

IT’S NO LESS VALID. Thank you, Orlando. Thank you.
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
Pyrozod's tags for this were too hilarious not to share
"i’m sad and idk how to feel better"
"i don’t know what to draw"
"i always mess up"
"BUT I SUCK"
THIS FUCKING POST

The single greatest scene in cinematic history.
(i dont reblog things on this blog but this was a keeper)
•BISEXUALITY IS NOT A PHASE
•FEMINISM IS NOT ABOUT BEING BETTER THAN MEN
•RAPE IS NOT ENJOYABLE
•SEXUALITY IS NOT A CHOICE
•ANXIETY IS NOT “CUTE”
•EATING DISORDERS ARE NOT A BODY TYPE
#okay i know some people hate this scene because they think it’s whedon making fun of cap#and that might have been how he intended it#but the way evans and rdj played it is so perfect#because there’s steve’s sass coming back#’seriously?’#’seriously tony?’#’what exactly are you expecting from me?’#’it’s been like a week and a half since i got here from the 40s’#’what does it look like?’#’well it seems to run on some form of electricity’#unspoken ‘you moron’#and tony’s response is just like#’i don’t know what i was expecting’#’you got me there’#i don’t know#i just thought the two of them played it perfectly off each other [via invisiblespork]
I didn’t know I needed this but now that I have it I’m so happy!
unless your teachers are abusive assholes there is no fucking reason to disrespect them
they are literally trying their hardest to get you an education
teachers have every right to complain about rude students or the amount of papers they have to grade because their salary is low as shit
oh wow, your math teacher yelled at you because you were ignoring the lesson and talking to your friend
i wonder why
jesus christ teachers have it hard enough dont be an asshole
Oh cool a sKY DEMON AWAKENSThis is one of the coolest pictures I have ever seen.
I’d be shitting myself if I saw that
Hey there Cthulhu, down there in your sunken city… *sings*
I want a scene of this in Age of Ultron, please.
Random Share! This came across my Facebook today and made me laugh remembering my Parable of the Wannabe Polyglot. Hope you all enjoy!
You are not weak, you are not dumb, and you are not selfish- for being a normal human being. Don’t put yourself down for these things!
