Just some weird kid. I like cats a lot, And art. I'm in college right now (art school) and I blog about that sometimes. I have no idea what else to put here and I'm feeling weird about it so I'll update it later. I'm all kinds of queer.
This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
favorite things about this
- literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
- the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
- all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
- that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
I JUST DIED
I SEARCHED THIS POST FOR AGES OH MY GOD
think about the concept of a library. that’s one thing that humanity didn’t fuck up. we did a good thing when we made libraries
I freaking love Slugbooks.com
I could have spent $207.65 on 3 textbooks for this semester if I rented them from my school bookstore.
But instead, I spent $49.12 because slugbooks showed me the cheapest prices on the internet AND I get to own two of the books instead of just renting them to save money, and when I’m done with them, I can sell them to the bookstore on campus.
There’s still one more book I can only get at the bookstore because one of my profs wrote it herself and it came out this year apparently only through the ASU bookstore. But the moral of the story is use Slugbooks if you’re in college.
