Can we talk about Spy Kids 3 for a second because it’s just the MOST BAFFLING CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE EVER

First we open to LITTLE BABY SELENA GOMEZ

THE PRESIDENT IS GEORGE CLOONEY?

image

Later we see Juni’s grandpa who is KHAN??

image

who spends the whole movie chasing a butterfly

image

THE VILLAIN IS SYLVESTER STALLONE

image

WHO GETS VILLAIN ADVICE FROM THREE OTHER SYLVESTER STALLONES

image

ELIJAH WOOD SHOWS UP

image

ONLY TO DIE IN THE NEXT SCENE

image

Then we find out that the president was actually the villain the whole time which makes ZERO SENSE but leads to this glorious George Clooney Sylvester Stallone impression

image

Then we get Antonio Benderez doing this?

image

image

AND THEIR UNCLE WHO IS STILL MACHETE image

AND THEN STEVE BUSCEMI SHOWS UP ON A FLYING PIG FOR NO REASON

IF YOU’D WATCH THE PREVIOUS SPY KIDS YOU’D KNOW WHY STEVE BUSCEMI SHOWS UP ON A FLYING PIG OR WHY ANTONIO BENDEREZ WAS DOING THAT I STILL HAVE NO EXPLANATION FOR MACHETE BUT HE WAS IN A PREVIOUS MOVIE TOO SO

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:

[stifled giggling]

[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

image

which is 8 fortes. We were shocked until,

image

Who does that?

This guy. Take a good look - that is the moustache of a man with nothing to lose.

If there’s one thing I so desperately want to happen in HW it’s Midna to have this moment of like nostalgia and happiness when she sees Link since she believed she’d never see him again after she broke the mirror.  But then she’d quickly realize it wasn’t her Link and be surprised and sad.  I’VE BEEN AVOIDING HW SPOILERS LIKE THE PLAGUE SO I HAVE NO IDEA IF ANYTHING LIKE IT HAPPENS but please let it happen Zelda gods.  If it does I will actually cry so hard ((o(;△;)o))

And then the second picture was a bonus to make myself feel better after thinking about it because I remembered we have the TP dlc costumes and we can all pretend that TP!Link and Midna are reunited and hug and 。・゚(゚ノT-T)ノ

The second picture actually took me a while to get right since I’m not good with interaction pictures and it started out super bad, mostly because I started it out wrong by just scribbling it all together without doing what I usually do.  But I fixed it AND DID IT and I’m so happy with it.  It took me forever to figure out how to shape Midna’s fused shadow right at angles too and all I have to say is bless concept art pictures.

I feel bad for the person hoping this because they have clearly never played a warriors game.

marksrecipes:

Unicorn Tear
240ml Mineral water2½/3g Agar flakes
a pinch of vanilla sugar
Add the water to a double boiler and sprinkle the agar flakes on top.Heat until boiling without stirring.Add the vanilla sugar.Stir occasionally, trying not to introduce too many bubbles for around 5/10 minutes, until the agar has completely dissolved.Pour into a half sphere mould and cool in the fridge to set.
The mochi is very delicate as less agar has been used, so it will fall apart easily. It will also begin to melt after 20 minutes or so at room temperature.
If done right, you’ll have a completely transparent half sphere of water that literally melts back into water in your mouth.
