directions in sound

It's okay to be hurt and breakdown you don't have to be strong all the time. [Feel like robbie is saying this to sportacus idk why]

Robbie did not expect to hear crying when he went outside at three in the morning because he couldn’t sleep.

It wasn’t loud crying, but quiet sobs, like whoever it was didn’t want to be heard. Following the direction that the sound was coming from (he was a villain, but he wasn’t a complete jerk), he tried to figure out who it was.

It wasn’t one of the kids, as it was definitely an adult, and it wasn’t female, so he was expecting the mayor perhaps.

He was not expecting Sportacus as he rounded the corner, and he certainly did not expect to see him sitting with his arms wrapped around his knees and his head down, sobbing as though his heart had shattered.

This was incredibly wrong to Robbie. If someone had upset him, well…it wouldn’t end well for them, that’s for sure. Had something happened? Was he hurt? Sick?

He would figure it out later. Now his primary objective was to get Sportacus calmed down (again, because he wasn’t an absolute jerk). Kneeling down beside him, Robbie laid a hand on his shoulder.

“What’s wrong?” he asked softly, letting what he was actually feeling bleed into the tone.

Sportacus looked up at him, wide-eyed, frantically trying to eradicate all traces of crying, until Robbie gently grabbed his hands. “Hey, hey,” he said, rubbing Sportacus’ cold hands. “It’s okay to be hurt and break down. You don’t have to be strong all the time.”

That’s all it took for Sportacus to launch himself into Robbie’s arms, sobbing brokenly. Robbie just held him close, knowing and trusting Sportacus to tell him when he felt ready.

Roswell is a nearly year old blue heeler from Arkansas. He came from an unknown breeder and was rehomed to us by someone who didn’t quite know what they’d gotten themselves into by owning a heeler. He is 80% deaf and has trouble seeing in very bright light, but you wouldn’t be able to tell unless you really knew what to look for. He can hear some things, but has trouble determining the direction that the sound is coming from. He is currently being worked with a clicker as a marker, although it is paired up with a thumbs up, and “yes”. I wasn’t sure if the clicker would work well with him because of his deafness, but because it is so loud it does seem to get his attention and he quickly learned that a click meant that a reward was to come.

We go lots of walking, jogging, and doggy parkor on the local college campuses. We try to not push him so hard as he’s still growing, but he doesn’t mind running around all day long. He’s been hiking several times too and seemed to take to it fairly well, although he is a pain to hike up and downhill with until he learns some very basic leash manners which we’re working on currently. We are currently working on loose leash walking as well as basic directionals for bikejoring- left, right, forward, etc., and I plan on having these foundations solidified well before we move on to actually having him out next to the bike.

My main plan for him is agility, but I feel that for he and I to succeed in that discipline he must first have at least a solid year of formal obedience. My options for obedience trainers in this area is a bit limited from what I’ve been told, so I’m hoping I can get in on some online courses offered every few months.

One thing really keeping us from doing much of what we’d planned to is his dog reactivity, which is proving a challenge to work on. After years of having trained a dog aggressive GSD with primarily compulsion, I would like to train our dog in a least invasive and minimally aversive way whenever possible. These words alone can mean so many things, but I think that their meaning in the context of owning a blue heeler get stretched a bit. This is not a GSD, this is something completely different. His reactivity will be a lifelong issue for us, one that his co-owner and I were both prepared for, and we aim to do it correctly from the beginning. He is a very relatable dog to me especially, and I feel that in helping him maybe I can find some way to help myself.

He is currently being enrolled in one Fenzi April course, and we’re hoping that he will be enrolled in many more to come.

Harry Styles’ new album is going to be earth-shattering. Harry is a perfectionist as we all know. He would never settle for less than a completely new innovation. He is honing his skills as a musician in order to be able to produce something beyond expectations. Judging from his widely varied collaborators, this album may very well define what music in this new century should sound like.

Harry Styles’ new album is going to shock the world. That is what fans need to hear. This album is going to be better than what music fans have become all too accustomed to. This isn’t some prefabricated formula for songwriting. It isn’t going to be something five young boys had to rush through with three months to write and record. Harry is stepping as far away from that kind of writing as possible to give fans the music they deserve.

Harry regularly embarrassing Draco in front of their friends like--
  • Harry: He waits up for me when I get held up at work.
  • Harry: He cooks for me... or tries to anyway-- I've put out three fires this week.
  • Harry: He's honestly just so damn cuddly, it's unbelievable really.
  • Harry: He makes this weird purring sound when I play with his hair.
  • Harry: He needs a minimum of eight kisses every ten minutes.
  • *Draco walks in with his nose in the air*
  • Draco: Hello there, Scarhead.
  • Everyone: *cooing sounds directed at Draco*
  • Draco: *furious* What the actual fuck have you been telling them about me this time, you utter bastard?
theatre things that remind me of the hogwarts houses

gryffindor: auditioning for the first time, being alone on stage, long choreography rehearsals, the adrenaline of opening night, designing the set on the grid, hauling furniture onto the set, cue to cues, writing a play, improv comedy, waiting at the stage door after a show.

hufflepuff: getting flowers and gifts backstage, taking the final curtain call, highlighting lines, bringing snacks to rehearsal, read-throughs, pulling costumes from stock, set dressing, paint swatches, warm lighting design, perfectly blended sound, directing, waking into a theater you’ve never been in before.

ravenclaw: character analysis, memorizing lines, learning tight harmonies, having the show become second nature, stage makeup, set construction, costume fittings, mic checks, organized prop tables, writing cues, stage managing, experimental theatre, saving old playbills and ticket stubs.

slytherin: callbacks, practicing after rehearsal, selling program ads, an understudy/swing going on for the first time, fight calls, strike, production meetings, late night paint calls, cool-toned lighting design, spiking the stage, fly rails, producing, watching a bootleg, playbill giveaways.


Directions: press ear for sound.

Woke up to something really nice yesterday. I now owe my hypothetical firstborn to a certain mutual

Guys, I just realized something...

Y’all might remember this scene from ASIP:

In the short story The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone, Sherlock says:

I am a brain, Watson. The rest of me is a mere appendix.

Now, what is the function of a skull in the human body?

Functions of the skull include protection of the brain, fixing the distance between the eyes to allow stereoscopic vision, and fixing the position of the ears to enable sound localisation of the direction and distance of sounds.
