my name is seymour | music major at tsu
In the practice room
Me: I suck.
Me: I've only had this piece since Tuesday, I don't suck.
Me: I suck. Maybe I wouldn't suck if I didn't miss that day of practice back in 2007.
Me: *nails passage* WATCH OUT HOROWITZ
Me: I could play this two days ago. Why can't I play it now?
Me: Maybe I should take off my ring.
Me: *messes up* Nope it's just me I'm bound to be a failed musician I will never have enough money for an apartment of my own let alone a family.
Me: *cries*
Me: *meditates*
Me: *succeeds at passage* I can do this!
Me: *messes up* No I can't...



So my school is fighting back against this principal

August 14- Principal Rich Thomas, in a senior class meeting about new rules and policies, when explaining the new phone policy, said “I don’t care if your Aunt is laying on her deathbed, you aren’t getting your cell phone back if we take it.”

Made a male student change out of his tank top in front of the school in front of him and at least 50 students into a shirt that followed the new dress code.

August 15-on- Constantly scans hallways, walkie talkie in hand, searching for students to either A. Give tardies to or B. Send to the In-School-Suspension room (ISS).

August 19- Pulled approximately 50+ female students from classrooms to be sent home over wearing gym/running shorts, made the girls who weren’t old enough to drive, and who’s parents couldn’t bring them clothes sit in ISS the rest of the day, even though this was many of their first EVER offenses.

August 20- Sent Mariah Adams home for wearing the outfit included in the picture attached.

Side notes: Was fired from Scott County High School for discrimination of the LGBTQ community members of the school.

Is forcing all students to wear lanyards with IDs to get into school.

Gives ISS after 4 total tardies in one semester, giving us 0.007% success rate in not going to ISS. With a total of 150 tardies within the first three days of school because of new, non-relenting policy.

Has expanded ISS room from capacity of 15 to capacity of 40 students with knowledge of the fact that he would be sending multiple student there for menial reasons every day.

And he also was fired before from another local school. LGBTQ Nation sent him a letter and sued the school: http://www.lgbtqnation.com/assets/2013/02/021413_Scott-County-Prom-Letter.pdf

The local news network has gotten word if the large amounts of chaos in the school and the nauseating dictatorship he’s made of our school.

We’re located in Perryville, MO. Literally and hour and half away from Ferguson.

Signal boost this, it’s important

Why is Missouri getting so shitty all of a sudden.

An Orchestra Keyboardist’s Bag O’Tricks

I know it’s a lot of text crammed in there… >_<

Playing in an orchestra can be intimidating for a solo instrument like the piano! But there are so many little things you could do to get different sounds. These 10 slides only covers the more common ones. If I were to go into the specific and detailed stuff, it will never end.

Please note that this is solely for piano as PART OF THE ORCHESTRA rather than a solo instrument as in a concerto.

why is my dad fucking going overseas again.

allegro-con-fuoco: That goddamn little miss I-have-to-state-an-unpopular-opinion-about-everything-because-I-think-it-makes-me-special-and-interesting. And all that crap saying people treated her weird because she worked at McDonald's or she's better at music than them (also false, but fine). Actually have you ever thought that no, maybe people don't like you because you're a bitch to them? STOP BEING A BITCH AND PEOPLE WON'T TREAT YOU LIKE ONE JESUS H CHRIST IT IS NOT THAT DIFFICULT I just can't with these people

ok like have i ever told u dat i envy all ur rants bc dey r all so hilarious, yet full of unadulterated rage. i’m sorry i laugh when you rant, but i also agree with all of your rants, so…

she works at walmart now and adam added her on fb because he was like “music friend!” and then within a day he deleted her because he couldn’t understand how somebody that looked like a nice human from afar could be so annoying online. i like chris’ interpretation of one of the pieces we played in orchestra too: “concerto for solo bitch with orchestra accompaniment”


be cool 2 ur pets. they have a very small life and u r a god to them. guide them through their life like a really cool tour guide and leave them with the best impression of earth

I’m so fucking angry and emotional over these fucking crickets in my room like that’s not okay and Adam can’t and basically scanned the floor and threw me my pillow/blanket and told me to sleep in the living room but wtf.

I can’t sleep I’m too scared and like I hung out with people I love tonight but I felt really anxious about it all so yeep

maybe i’m losing too much weight now because i can actually feel bones i haven’t been able to feel since beginning of freshman year and i guess that means that being cut off from school food has made me return to my starting weight before college, but at the same time professors are wide-eyeing me and saying i look like i lost half my weight and it’s scaring me because do i look malnourished or something damn







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.

an english major, an art major, and a film major walk into a bar

they all get ridiculed for pursuing what they love

plot twist: together they create the most dramatically intricate and visually compelling pieces of cinema the world has ever seen and make a cultural milestone and also a billion dollars
