anonymous asked:

Can you tell the metronome story? Idk it

ajdlfhkajgf okay. so

in high school i was in the marching band and in my junior year i was co-section leader and i carried a metronome in my backpack to use in rehearsals after school

to preface this story, the day before The Event we had a lockdown because there was a “suspicious person” circling the building (it was a confused parent. i spent two hours in the percussion closet. can you fuckign image, with my level of anxiety. anyway) so everyone was kind of on edge

so in this particular year of high school i had math first thing in the morning, which was awful, so i liked to go visit my english teacher because she was my favourite and i liked hanging out with her in my free time. so i set my backpack down and i leave the room

it gets close to time for class to start and i start heading back to the classroom, and @starrymonk and another friend of ours come running up to me and they tell me that our math teacher thinks my backpack has a bomb in it

apparently, when i set down my backpack, the metronome was in the bottom and got turned on and started beeping

now bombs haven’t fucking beeped or ticked since the goddamn 1960s but fuck that logic, our math teacher was actually. fucking ild and had never heard of an electric metronome in her life and was shouting at students to evacuate the wing 

so im running up and trying to explain to this fucko that the beeping in ¾ time at 120bpm is not, in fact, a bomb, but a device for making sure my section is in time, but she’s fucking losing it and makes us evacuate to the cafeteria

the students in the cafeteria are losing their shit. yesterday they thought they were going to be the next victims of a school shooting and today they think they’re going to die via metronome bomb. im running around trying to find a fucking sane faculty member while simultaneously telling everyone i run into, “it’s not a bomb, it’s A FUCKING METRONOME”

i finally find the vice principal and tell him, “dude, it’s not a fucking bomb, it’s a metronome, you know me, i’m in the band, literally there are only like five hundred fucking students in this school you know exactly who i am”

so he grabs me and another staff member and we start heading back toward the wing with the fake bomb, and already the three officers that we have patrolling the school (because of the incident the previous day) and the principal are gathered near the classroom and they shout at us to stop at the end of the hall (which is no more than fifty feet from the classroom, if that, and yeah that’s totally far enough to save us in the event of a bomb going off, right)

so the vp shouts to them that i think it’s a metronome, and i’m like no, i know it’s a metronome it’s my backpack and im a band student for the love of god

so they’re like nah we’re gonna call bomb squad

so fucking, i’m sent back to the cafeteria and this is how things happen as my band director filled me in later that day

apparently, the principal calls my band director down at the opposite end of the school and he’s like “hey darren, could you identify the sound of a metronome over the phone???” and my band director has no clue what’s happening because he isn’t involved in this nonsense, he doesn’t have a class during first period and was probably napping in his office, but he’s like “yeah, probably??” and the principal holds the phone up to the noise and my band director says it sounds like a metronome

skipping about an hour of hysteria and me telling everyone repeatedly that they aren’t going to die, the intercom comes on and tells the student body to gather in the gym for an assembly, presumably so we can all die in one place when the metronome bomb goes off

i’m still telling everyone i can grab that the bomb isn’t real and we aren’t going to die, and then i sit in the bleachers, possibly the angriest i have ever been, while everyone gathers in the gym

the principal and other important faculty whoever the fuck come in and start talking about the previous day’s incident and how tensions are high, so someone may have been stressed and mistakenly thought a metronome (which he pronounced as “metrodome,” which i like to think of as a giant beeping sports stadium) was a live fucking bomb

meanwhile i see the doors to the gym open and my band director slides in. he looks around for a minute, then sees me, and fucking grins like the asshole he is and starts edging his way around the room to me

when he gets over to me, he turns to face the people talking about threats and mistakes and bullshit to cover the fact that they know nothing about music education

and then slowly and slyly he pulls my metronome out of his pocket and hands it over to me, and then separately hands me the two batteries to it and starts giggling

if you don’t believe me, i made the fucking news

at the people who say donald trump is all talk: you’re right. he’s all talk, and you know what he’s talking about? my family. he’s talking about deporting mexican immigrants and their children. when he says that he’s talking about my brothers, my sisters, my mom, and her husband. he’s talking about my uncle and my cousins. he might be “all talk” but his talk is scary and it hits home. so before you say people are overreacting to how he’s addressing the issue of immigration please reconsider because these people that are “overreacting” are the people he’s talking about and they have every right to react the way they do.

“It seems like her stuff in there.”

This is mostly for future reference, but I was wondering about all the stuff (apparently belonging to Rose) Steven found under the tree in Lion’s mane and where it went, and what we have or haven’t seen of it so far.

Rose’s flag

Steven gives it to Pearl at the end of Rose’s Scabbard. Seems to currently be in Pearl’s possession - most of the tie-in material shows her with it.

Rose’s sword

First given to Steven and Connie in Lion 2: The Movie by Lion himself. Reunited with its scabbard in Rose’s Scabbard and put back into Lion’s mane by Steven and Pearl. Steven gives it to Connie in Nightmare Hospital where she very effectively uses it to fight the fusion experiments, and she’s shown carrying it in the second opening.

Rose’s tape

Watched by Steven and Sadie in Lion 3: Straight to Video, current whereabouts unknown. Gave us our first real glimpse of Rose Quartz.

The Mr. Universe shirt

Greg gives this to Rose in the flashback to their first meeting in Story for Steven. Probably still hanging in Lion’s mane.

The framed photo of Rose and Greg

Probably still in Lion’s mane. Seems to match the one Greg keeps in his storage unit, that Steven accidentally breaks in Laser Light Canon and that Amethyst later fixes as a peace offering in Maximum Capacity.

will trade pins for service dog classes

wow boy howdy look at this nonsense

so as everyone knows, this saturday (23/04/16) i am bringing home Bones, my ESA and psychiatric service dog candidate! he is very cute and there will be many pictures of our shenanigans.

but in order for him to go from service dog candidate to service dog, we need to pay for classes! 

in total, the classes (over the course of two years) will have a cumulative cost of $5,000 ($200 a month + down payment). i work part time (max 30 hours per week) and go to school full time, but i can, at this moment in time, cover half the monthly cost ($100) and the $500 down payment (with my tax return)

bob @sincerelywrong has been so kindly donating plushes and icons to help fundraise to bring Bones home, but seeing as bob has their own financial things to deal with, as we all do, i need to throw my weight in a bit more

so, pins !!!! they are embroidered by yours truly and can sit right on your shirt. wow. i can do pretty much any rudimentary design, but i’m not an artist, so anything with more detail probably won’t work out.

but, i can stitch words, plants (flowers, cacti, succulents, etc.), various Space Objects (such as that jupiter right up there), lesbian propaganda to remind everyone that you’re A Gay, and other things!

i can do two pins for a $5 donation to my gofundme or paypal, and 5 pins for a $10 donation! what a steal!

when you have donated, submit a screenshot to me and let me know what you would like embroidered, and give me your address for me to ship them!

my gofundme can be found here and my paypal address is loyalnerdwp18@gmail.com

thank you so much beebs !
