A graceful creature of the seafloor, a sea pen resembles a plump, old-fashioned quill pen. Its colors range from dark orange to yellow to white. Each sea pen is a colony of polyps (small anemonelike individuals) working together for the survival of the whole. (Source)

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

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.

Oh man, texting for sure. I hate phone calls, unless it’s my parents calling or something. I’ve told people that if they’re getting a call from me, it’s most likely an emergency because phone calls make me anxious.

this is from a store in los angeles called The Echo Park Time Travel Mart, and it’s pretty much the coolest place

WHAT?! @themaskedman, I think I know where our next adventure has to be.

@printscharming Looks fun! I’m down haha.

HURRAY 826!  This is a national organization that sets up awesome kids literacy tutoring groups and puts hilariously dorky storefronts in front of each one!

Chicago has the Secret Agent Supply: 

Ann Arbor has Robot Supplies:

Boston has the Bigfoot Research Institute:

And there are more:  http://ift.tt/2h5Vm1j

Great for Christmas shopping!  All proceeds go to the local chapter of the charity!

OMG, I knew about the one in Brooklyn but didn’t realize it was a chain!

How can you not mention the original, 826 Valencia in San Francisco? They are amazing organizations

The pirate supply store is the one in San Francisco which is also by v826 and it’s great.

I hate when guys say shit like, “Why would you cut your hair? Guys don’t like girls with short hair.” That’s like watching someone else make a sandwich for their self and saying, “Why are you putting tomatoes in it? I don’t like tomatoes.”

This is fucking amazing.
