excited to check out the goodwill for the first time this year. $$phresh finds$$
i wish i could pay my portion of the bills through paypal
so, my new midi keyboard takes up about 40% of my desk
which means i’m gonna have to put laptop in desktop-mode
which means i’m gonna have to go find a new usb (typing) keyboard
on one hand, the great beer spill of 2014 made it so only 1/3 of my keyboard backlight is functional
on the other hand, this probably saves a good chunk of battery life
i would love some pizza right now
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.
