official musician compatibility

orchestra

1st violins: compatible with other first violins (to maintain the pure blood) and principle cello

2nd violins: compatible with violas because you’re both basically the same thing anyway. not compatible with other seconds because you’re just such awkward people 

violas: compatible only with other violas so you don’t infect the others with your viola cooties

cellos: compatible with pretty much anyone, but only if you’re first or second stand

basses: compatible with everyone at the same time because you’re generally attractive people just saying


band

flutes: compatible with clarinets and kazoos, and also first violins because you’re both the only people who can read ledger lines in treble clef really well

piccolos: only works with the oboe, because both of your instruments can really hurt to listen to

oboes: compatible with clarinets, but only if gay

clarinets: compatible with flutes, and with oboe because you share the bond of having people mistake your instrument for the other

bassoons: you’re kind of awkward people, but trumpet players (and traitorous second violins) find it endearing so there’s that

horns (french, english, and car): compatible with trumpet and trombone

trumpets: could actually be compatible with first violins if they weren’t so snooty

trombones: compatible with tuba just because the average person doesn’t know the difference between the two anyway

tuba (singular because what band would want multiple tubas): could be in a relationship with other under-appreciated instruments, like the bassoon, bass, kazoo, and viola

euphonium: lol did you think I would actually talk about this instrument

percussion: the sluts of the musical world. could get anyone they wanted to


choir

pretty much everyone in choir is gay, so just keep that in mind and go nuts


*other instruments like harp, piano, and guitar are forever alone

*mingling between band and orchestra, orchestra and choir, choir and band is a sin but sin is okay as long as no one knows about it

Seventeen as shit my orchestra says
— 

Scoups : IM THE MAIN CELLo SO THAT MEANS I AM ALL OF YOU GUY’S FATHER

Jeonghan: I should play in front because I’m the prettiest tbh

Joshua: Jesus has blessed me with the power of playing this violin

Jun: cheese is my favorite string

Hoshi : is it possible to dance hips don’t lie with a bass ? No? Okay

Wonwoo: I forgot to bring my viola- sits in trash can and reads a book-

Woozi : I will hit you with my cello if you don’t shut the hell up - trips on a chair-

Dk: guys, I sacrificed my hair for this bow- horse sound - ( a bow is made up of horse of hair lmao)

Mingyu: how do you read music again- (is in advanced Orchestra)

Minghao : Is it possible to make a viola a gun because I’m about to go thug mode on all of y'all

Seungkwan: GUYS STOP BEING SO BAD , YOURE BECOMING WORSE THAN BAND - falls -

Vernon: guys buy my mixtape, it has Kanye and my badass violin skills in one song

Dino : - eats potato salad while playing on the bass then drops the bass - YALL THE BASS DROPPED

Miss Grundy ain’t even really Miss Grundy? She’s a liar, and a scammer, and she’s messing around with a fifteen-year-old physically and mentally and every breath she takes is suspicious. I never trusted that heffa as soon as she rolled up in those Katy Perry California Gurls, heart shaped sunglasses, sipping her Odwalla smoothie preying on Archie. She probably doesnt even really know how to play the cello. Musty bitch.

roxwallyssox  asked:

I love you charms!! They are so cute!! As an artist trying to get started on selling my own products, i was wondering if i could ask how you make your packaging look so nice? I would love to learn how to make my stuff look so professional.

Oh me gosh, you have no idea how much that means to me… I’m emotional now! ( ・ᴗ・̥̥̥ ) Thank you very much lovely! ( ◜◒◝ )♡ I apologize in advanced for taking forever to answer your wonderful ask. You caught me right in the middle of prepping for a convention 。(*^▽^*)ゞ

Anywhosies~ Here’s a small tutorial on how I do my packaging for charms:

First, make your design. I sometimes sketch out the design on paper before I move onto Photoshop. Depending on how big you want your packaging to be, is how big you want your design to be. I prefer to use 3x5in and always work under a 300dpi/resolution or bigger. Make sure you are able to find baggies with your dimensions before you design. I’ll talk about this further into this tutorial.

Tip: Make your width at least .25in smaller! Some baggies are a couple of millimeters smaller from the actual width. I keep forgetting to fix this little detail thus why you see the width as 3in instead of 2.75in.

The design is really up to you. You can have a theme going on per set, per charm, or you can even just use your logo as the design for every charm and make your life easier lol  There’s no rules to follow, just have fun and design away!

Tip: Don’t overdue your designs though, you want the charm to be the main focus. Something simple yet fun and or elegant will work. Don’t be afraid to google examples of other people’s designs. That will give you an idea and get you going.

Save your designs! Save them as both a JPG and PS file (or as the software you are using).

Be organized! If you plan on having multiple designs or even make lots more charms in the future, name them so they are easier to find. Your packaging designs can even have their own folder or sub folder if needed.

Setting up. Open any wordpad or word processor of your choice and add your design. Depending on how big your design is, you’ll be able to fit more or less. 

Print a test page. Print your design on your everyday normal paper just to check that everything looks okay! If your printer is like mine, it will be a troll and sometimes print a bit crooked, but don’t worry! Since they’ll be cut, it doesn’t affect your designs in any way.

Now let’s print…

Ta-daaaa! Here are my designs that I printed on the cardstock I fell in love with. The cardstock I use is called Astroparche Cover Stock and it’s from the brand, Neenah. I love the natural look it has–it’s not white, so ye be warned that the colors will have a small slight tint of yellow when printing. The cardstock is also thick enough for my printer to use and sturdy enough for my charms. You can find this cardstock on Amazon, but I was lucky enough to find it at my local Office Depot!

Tip: Photo paper can also be used if you so prefer. Again, whatever makes you happy and works best for you. 

Get your handy dandy paper cutter ready…

Cut, cut, cut! Cut out all your designs with your paper cutter. I don’t suggest using scissors unless you trust your hand enough that it won’t mess up and cut straight! If you don’t have a paper cutter, note that you most certainly do not need to buy the huge guillotine type. There’s small ones that can be used and can even be taken with you to conventions! The one I use is small and cute and has been with me for three years and the extra blade that came with it has not been used yet. Amazing~

Punch, punch, punch! Time to get your hole puncher and punch them little holes. I actually have a special hole puncher with a 3mm hole, but you can definitely use a regular 6mm hole puncher. How far down you want your hole to be is up to you.

Tip: If you want to get fancy, you can even buy hole punchers that have cute hole designs! Like stars or hearts ♡ ☆ ♡ ☆

Baggies!!! So, remember how I said to make sure to find baggies with the dimensions you plan to use before designing? This is only because of the rare chance you use certain dimensions that there’s no baggies for. Always double check!

Anyways, when buying baggies, make sure that you go half and inch (or more) above your height so you can create a tab to fold back and tape your baggie shut. You can also find baggies that already have adhesive! It’s just a matter of what you like and what works for you. Maybe you want to get creative and use a cute sticker or washi tape to close your baggie, who knows! Some people even buy baggies with hang tabs to hang them for display when they’re tabling in conventions.

“But Dee, where do I find baggies??”

*squishes your cheeks and whispers*

Ebay… Ebay is your best friend. Search for clear cello/poly bags ( ̄▽ ̄*)

Almost there…

Setting up! Once you have your charms built and ready to go, it’s time to package them and use your new super duper amazing designs! For this, we’ll be using washi tape since it doesn’t leave any residue and it’s easier to peel off. Any washi tape will do, it doesn’t matter! I tend to rip off about 10-20 pieces at a time to have them ready to go. It makes things easier on my end.

For cellphone straps: Loop the strap inside the hole and align your charm. Once you are happy, tape the strap with the washi tape.

For key chains: Yes, it works just as well! But we’ll be needing ribbon, 3mm wide ribbon to be exact. Cut about 2in and loop one end inside the split ring while bringing the other end above. Bring both ends of the ribbon into the hole and align your charm. Once you are happy, tape the ribbon. You should now have your charm cutely hanging from the ribbon~

All you gotta do now is bag ‘em, seal ‘em, and you are ready to go! Look at you–you did it! I’m so proud of you ( ・ᴗ・̥̥̥ )

I hope this helps you and anyone else looking to start making their own unique packaging for their cute charms~ ❤ (ɔˆз(ˆ⌣ˆc)

I’m not sure if you have seen this video yet but if you haven’t seen it then I feel as if you’re doing a disservice to both your ears and your eyes which could have easily been blessed about a million seconds ago with this fucking perfect creation of art and majesty. 

aka: my favorite song from one of my favorite artists decides to do a music video and far outshines anything I’ve ever witnessed ever

aka: the one with the sparklers. 

The instruments when they're about to graduate
  • Flute: cries at everything. hugs everyone goodbye, even the music stand
  • Oboe: at first they're not that sad, but then it ~hits them~ and they just start sobbing
  • Bassoon: doesn't even notice that its the end of senior year. they're just excited for school to be out
  • Clarinet: strangely sad about their math class being over
  • Saxophone: gives the director the middle finger on their way out the door
  • Trumpet: will not fucking shut up about college
  • Trombone: finds the incoming seniors to make sure they keep the weird section traditions alive
  • Horn: *gross sobbing*
  • Euphonium: frantically trying to not fail english
  • Tuba: reassures school tuba that they love it. hugs tuba.
  • Percussion: pranks the band director
  • Violin: living embodiment of "i'm not crying, you are"
  • Viola: brings director chocolates and heartfelt thank you card
  • Cello: stays late in the orchestra room to soak in the ~aesthetic~
  • Bass: lol bye see ya suckers
