Intertwined... Family revealed...

Has anyone ,besides the creature that is my mind, noticed the family connection in the Mortal Instruments main gay ship Malec and Supernatural’s main gay ship Destiel?

Think about it.

Magnus’ father is Azazel ,who is Castiel’s brother. Sooooooo……

Castiel is Magnus’ uncle.

Also how did the Winchester’s father be able to know how to hunt demons and teach others about it?

In my theory, their father used to be a shadowhunter and left the clave to be with a mundane.

Now let what I just revealed to you sink in for a bit.

Plz repost let the poor souls know the news!!!!

Interesting Idea For Musicians

So recently, our band has been practicing a song for our upcoming concert. We noticed he looked increasingly frustrated with the band, as we were all playing quite loudly. Then he stopped us.

“Everyone. I know this could possibly be difficult for you, but I want everyone to pay attention and try this for me. Any note that’s longer than a quarter or a dotted quarter note, I don’t want you to play.”

So we started playing the song, everyone with notes shorter than the ones mentioned, we played. But when we stopped playing, we could hear the intricate parts other instruments played.

Some of us, for the first time, hears the gentle run the bass clarinet played. We heard the bubbly tune of the bassoons.

People actually heard the saxophone’s eighth notes. The flute trills. The sound of the clarinets playing an intense run.

Separated trumpet parts. Tubas playing a low, harmonious tune. Trombones playing a beautiful sequence of eighth notes and runs that we hadn’t noticed.

Everyone heard a part we hadn’t heard before. It was all because we were so focused on our parts that we hadn’t noticed the beauty of the other sections. Most of us were stunned.

It was an unusual experience that I hope to experience again while learning future pieces.

To all musicians and conductors, I say to you, this is something you should try. Since we had that practice, our band has been far more thoughtful regarding our volume when playing, and has made an effort to let the lesser heard instruments the stars of the piece.

missmehphistos  asked:

Oops sorry, can I have headcannons for 4taro, Kakyoin and Polnareff with an S/O who is a musical virtuoso, they can sing beautifully and can play multiple instruments at a time, and their getting famous for it but are a little shy?

Sure thing ♡ I hope I don’t mess this one up like that last headcanon..

(I tried using difficult words to improve my vocabulary ^^ I hope I used them correctly!)


- The first time he finds out about his s/o’s talent, he’d be fairly surprised by the fact that his s/o has a lot of talent. (WHO WOULDN’T GOD IM SO OBVIOUS) He’d immediately think of his father, as both of them have a connection with music and instruments.

- Jotaro would enjoy listening to his s/o play their instruments or sing. He’d like to listen to it while doing his marine biology work, and it’d be very relaxing and soothing, like a remedy for all of his stress from his work. 

- Since his s/o is pretty famous, they’d constantly have fans around them asking for autographs and pictures. He wouldn’t be too happy when this happens as it does get really loud and noisy, but he’d just be glad that it isn’t him getting all of the attention.

- “Aren’t you going to practice?” This would be his way of saying that he wants to listen to their music. AS per usual, he’d say it with his blank face. He’d notice right away if his s/o stopped playing their instruments or singing. He’d check if his s/o was alright by peeking his head through the door of his s/o’s practice. Once knowing his s/o was alright, he’d get back to work and wait for his s/o to resume their practice. He’d also notice if they’ve been practising for a long time, and would be concerned. Immediately, he’d go to their room and tell them to take a break. “Yare Yare Daze, stop pushing yourself. Take a break idiot.” ← To all the jjba headcanon blogs from joots.


- Kakyoin would absolutely admire his s/o for their amazing talent. The first time he finds out about this, he’d smother his s/o in compliments. He’d really mean everything he says, as he finds it amazing that he’d found somebody who had an aptitude for something they really love.

- Whenever his s/o has a concert, he’d always be there. He’d make sure to bring a camera, so he can capture his s/o in their most beautiful moment. He’d also be very happy because he’d be able to get the best seat, making it easier for him to take his pictures. After the concert, he’d show his s/o the pictures he took and tell them how good they looked and how beautiful their performance was.

- The best day to him would be to eat nice ripe cherries while listening to his s/o playing their music beside him. It’d be a very relaxing day! Him and his s/o would feed each other cherries and eventually there’d be a whole bowl of cherry seeds. After getting full on cherries, they’d both take a little nap. Kakyoin would probably dream about his s/o serenading him, because he really wants it to happen.

“S/o, you’re such a talented and beautiful person. What did I do to deserve you?” Kakyoin would say flattering things to his s/o without realising what had just come out of his mouth. He’d only realise if his s/o was blushing mad. (Then he’d blush too, registering how embarrassing what he said was.)


- Shouting. The first time he finds out about his s/o being a virtuoso, he’d go crazy. “WHAT?! S/O YOU CAN DO ALL THOSE THINGS? THAT’S INCREDIBLE! WOW!” Constant whats and wows. It would probably take a couple of days for Polpol’s brain to register how amazing his s/o was.

- If his s/o was ever practising, he’d come bursting into their room (with his big bara tiddies) while singing something random. Like a mix of opera and yodelling. After being told to shut up, he’d obediently sit beside his s/o and listen to their music. He has a reason for being loud though, it’s because he gets so excited when he hears beautiful sounds coming from his s/o’s room. “S/O STARTED PRACTISING!!!”

- If his s/o was noticed by one of their fans and asked for a picture and an autograph, Polnareff would become quite jealous because all of his s/o’s attention would be on their fan. Polnareff would be a little grumpy when seeing some of their fans come up to them, but wouldn’t say anything as he knows how much they want to have their autograph because they’re so AWESOME.

-  “Can you play that song you always play?” There’d be that one song that Polnareff would love to hear, and he’d always request for his s/o to play it. It’d most likely be the first song they ever sang or played in front on Polnareff. It would basically be his own little lullaby.

“What people do with horses is most of the time not related to the feeling and passion that led them to this beautiful creature originally. This very sincere and pleasing feeling’s name is the love for horses. But the moment when they approach a horse, immediately some ‘specialists’ appear and begin to explain that the horse must be pushed around, broken and that you need to lock it up with reins that are connected to a metal instrument in his mouth. A system that’s built on those ideas excludes any kind of love, and especially the love for the horse” ~ Alexander Nevzorov

Dr. Foster – Jane, she’d said – had a lab in London.

“Well, it’s not exactly a lab. I’m in between grants.”

“Dr. Banner said you were one of the most gifted physicists alive,” Steve said, looking around the small apartment. One wall was mostly printouts of various graphs laid over a large map. The laptop on the table was connected to a bulky instrument that Steve suspected she’d built herself.

He was, once again, reminded of Howard.

In earlier decades, Amazigh movement circles were extremely reticent to mention anything to do with the Arab- Israeli conflict or the belief in their Jewish “roots.” But starting in the beginning in the 21st century, they became more open and blunt. Emphasizing past and present Jewish-Berber connections has an instrumental value in their struggle to escape the bear hug of Islamist movements and the state’s own official Islamic and Arab nationalist-centered narrative. Foregrounding their indigenousness and pre-Islamic identity in North Africa is central to their claims for recognition and remedial action by North African governments. While avoiding any open declaration of having once been Jews, the grand narrative articulated in a 2007 Amazigh organization manifesto stated that, of all the outsiders who interacted with the Berbers throughout history, “only the Jews” came in peace. Lhoussain Azergui’s personal testimony, entitled “Je revendique la part juive en moi” [I claim the Jewish part in me”], contains all of the themes mentioned here.

Anecdotal evidence of the Amazigh movement’s interest in things Jewish and Israeli abound. In conversations with Israelis, Amazigh activists invariably inquire after the state of the Berber language in Israel, brought by Jews who had immigrated from Berberophone areas in Morocco (and are usually quite disappointed to learn that it is not being passed down to subsequent generations.) In Goulmima, one of the many southeastern Moroccan Berber villages inhabited by Jews until the mass exodus to Israel in the late 1950s and early 1960s, an annual masquerade ritual has been transformed among the youth into an expression of Amazigh activism and militancy, rejecting Islamist discourse and identifying with Judaeo-Berber culture and even Israel. The expressions of philo-Hebraism among the town’s youth were so disturbing to some that the local Islamic imam issued a fatwa forbidding them, albeit to no avail. More generally, the annual gathering draws many former Goulmima Muslims now living abroad, as well as Kabyle activists.

Instagram @music’s Monthly Hashtag Project: #MHPmysounds

Monthly Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @music and look for a post announcing this month’s project

The goal of #MHPmysounds is to make creative images and videos inspired by the sounds you feel most connected to. From the instruments you play to your favorite type of dance to a musician whose style you emulate, show us the ways music helps shape your identity.

Our project takes inspiration from Camille and Kennerly Kitt (@camillekennerly), aka the Harp Twins. Camille and Kennerly have built their lives and careers around what they consider to be a magical instrument. “It wasn’t something we had been exposed to really early in life or anything like that. We don’t have any professional musicians in the family and neither of our parents play instruments,” say the twins. “But somehow the harp resonated in a way that no other instrument ever has for us.” Although Camille and Kennerly are classically trained harpists, they are most inspired by rock and metal music, which they often cover live. “If we don’t play our version of Iron Maiden’s ‘Fear of the Dark’ [at concerts], people are really upset,” they say.

Some tips to get you started on this month’s project:

  • Look for ways in which music has an effect on the details you see around you every day. Perhaps it’s your style of clothing or the worn posters on your wall that captures your musical identity best.
  • Take portraits of the people or groups you associate with your personal sound. It could be the friends you see concerts with, the band you play in at school or even fellow fans at your next live show.
  • This project is about how music shapes who you are, so think about the personal connections and memories you have with certain genres, artists or songs, and brainstorm ways to depict those relationships visually.

Project Rules: Please add the #MHPmysounds hashtag only to photos and videos taken this month and only submit your own. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged image or video taken this month is eligible to be featured. Finally, please respect an artist’s wishes if they ask not to be photographed or recorded.


When Zappa was invited to Prague by Vaclav Havel in January 1990, he was reportedly shocked at his instant popularity, as well as by how well people knew his music—in the 1970s and 1980s Czechs listened to Zappa thanks to albums that were smuggled into communist Czechoslovakia via secret networks that transported literature, music, and even musical instruments.

The connection may not seem immediately obvious, but Frank Zappa’s popularity in Prague is closely connected to the dark days of the dissident era, when his music and that of the Velvet Underground were blacklisted by the censors. For example, Frank Zappa’s second album, Absolutely Free was smuggled into Czechoslovakia within a year of its 1967 release, and critics claim that the music influenced the famous Czech underground rock band, The Plastic People of the Universe. Zappa’s tunes thus came to represent freedom and independent thought to dissidents in Czechoslovakia. Reports have it that when young kids in communist Czechoslovakia played heavy rock music, the police would tell them to “turn off that Frank Zappa music.”

Then, in January 1990, Vaclav Havel appointed Frank Zappa as “Special Ambassador to the West on Trade, Culture and Tourism,” much to the disgruntlement of U.S. Secretary of State, James Baker, who is famous for declaring: “You can do business with the United States or you can do business with Frank Zappa.” Still, Vaclav Havel’s friendship with Frank Zappa grew, and Zappa shared his ideas about increasing tourism to Czechoslovakia, and explained the concept of credit cards which were then an unknown quantity in this part of the world. It was Frank Zappa’s brief interlude in the world of international trade and diplomatic relations—and the vantage-point was Prague.

Vaclav Havel still counts himself amongst Zappa’s big fans, and says that “Frank Zappa was one of the gods of the Czech underground.” There he’ll surely stay in the memories of his Czech friends
