Story time

Today when I was walking home from the bus stop I got caught at a stoplight. I had been crying since about halfway through my bus ride and I just couldn’t seem to stop. While I was waiting for the light to turn green this lady approached me and asked me if I was okay. Partially due to my shock at a stranger talking to me, and partially due to my current state of mind, all I could manage to do was look up at her and say, “Gay.” She smiled and patted me on the shoulder and said, “Well, gay is okay!” And then she walked off and I crossed the street and carried on with my life, hysterically sobbing and laughing as I went. 

Because little did she know,

I was crying about the new episode of yuri on ice.

The rest of the friends had gone back inside, leaving Bloo to find the missing frisbee that got lost during the game. Just as he was about to search the bush, he turned around because he thought he heard a noise. What he saw up in the sky was a green figure approaching him. It could’ve been another imaginary friend, but he couldn’t seem to recognize them.

“What is that thing?”

Max sat cross-legged on the beach sand, fingers diving deep and watching as the sand slipped through his fingers. It was chilly to his fingers and it made him think of his expectations of Greece and how they didn’t quite add up. But it could’ve been worse. The sand was still white and the scenery was still pleasing. Max and Pearl weren’t struggling for funds, not even in the slightest, so there was little to complain about in the grand scheme of things. Noticing the green-eyed blonde approaching, the one he’d learned to love so much, he sat up straighter, brows raised with amusement. “Where have you been?” he asked. “I must admit, things have been pretty dull since we’ve split up.”

As ridiculous as it likely sounded, since they’d only parted ways not even an hour ago, things really had begun to bore him. Pearl helped him see the thrill in little things, pulled him out of his shell and forced him to embark on an adventure he wouldn’t have even considered without her. His hand took another dive into the sand, which had him wincing, quickly pulling his hand from the pile to reveal a bleeding index finger, a piece of glass momentarily surfacing before being drowned by speckles of particles once more. “Fuck! Man down!” he shouted. He pushed to his feet, sucking the blood out of the wound and placing it at his side. “Do you think Archer knows where to buy coke?” Max asked, a fleeting thought that had quickly passed earlier suddenly surfacing, before he had to remind himself he was clean. “Right. No coke. How about copious amounts of tequila?” @pearlwintrs

I was highkey inspired by this beautiful art of lardo skateboarding next to Shitty by @kantperson. I went to town on my tags and I realized how I needed to share this information immediately. 

Lardo has a longboard that she uses to zip around campus. It’s taller than she is. It’s covered in paint splatters and it’s super fast. Lardo zooms by people and their heads turn. Everyone has a crush on Lardo. 

She surfs to and from classes, takes the long way around Faber just to get momentum from a downhill path. She doesn’t stop for anyone, but it’s not like they’d have to; her timing is perfect. Red lights turn green as she approaches. Pedestrian walkways clear naturally as she zooms from around a corner. 

Lardo on a longboard teaching the SMH team to skateboard—with no success. She makes it look easy, gliding to and fro. Shitty needs someone to walk alongside him in order to stay vertical. Jack can’t seem to kick off the ground. Holster keeps standing on the edge and falling off.

Cookies

The day had been pretty average and boring by the standards of the two skeleton brothers walking through the halls of the CORE facility. School had just ended for the day and they were on their way back home, weaving through the assistants and workers that crowded the corridors. Papyrus was going on about his day in usual fashion, making even the most dull time at school somehow sound interesting and full of fun. Neither of them even noticed a familiar green dragon monster approach them.

“Hey Sans, Papyrus.” Farfig smiled as she came near, the two boys stopping to smile up at her.

“heya.”

“HI MS. FARFIG!” Papyrus beamed.

“I’m glad I ran into you. I made you both a little something.” She started to dig into her purse, heading out and on her way home by the looks in her change of coat. After a moment she pulled out a cookie tin and handed it down to Papyrus.

“WHAT’S THIS?”

7 trusty tricks to get your kids listening to classical

Parents and friends of little ones, listen up! Now’s your chance to trick them into loving classical music. They haven’t yet had the chance to absorb all that (really unfair) chat about classical being uptight, boring and elitist. As far as they know, it’s just music - no stigma attached.

Originally posted by crushabledotcom

Instead of taking an ‘eat your greens’ kind of approach - because we know how successful THAT will be - we’ve come up with a few ways for you to make classical music fun and part of everyday life for your small friends.


1. Take them to see a holiday production of The Nutcracker
We know how much kids love Christmas, and the idea of their toys coming to life while they sleep (or maybe that’s just us?). They’ll also probably already be familiar with the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy tune. Dress up, make it an occasion, and then blast the CD in the car on the way home. 


2. Use specific pieces of classical music as part of their daily ritual
What about some Morning Mood  every day as you all rise from bed? Or maybe some Arvo Pärt on a Sunday. In a hurry? William Tell Overture is sure to get those little legs moving. Or perhaps you’ve got two competitive kids who will delight in racing each other to the end of the Flight of the Bumblebee in order to pack up the toys or find that lost shoe. (There is ALWAYS a lost shoe to be found).


3. Play soothing classical on long road trips
Anecdotal evidence suggests that kids can get a bit silly when sat in confined spaces for long periods at a time. What you really don’t want to do is play music that’s going to hype THEM up, and drive YOU mad at the same time. How about giving Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals a spin? You could even play a game with them and see if they can pick the animal each movement represents. Another good one for the car - the soothing and hypnotic, single line melodic strains of Bach’s cello suites.


4. Introduce them to music with a fantastical background story
And you don’t have to stop at Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. Move on to the magical trolls, witches and gnomes of the Norwegian fairytale Peer Gynt, (by now they’ll already know the Morning song), and introduce them to the slightly creepy theme tune of the Troll King. You could even talk them through a G-rated version of Wagner’s Ring opera, with its kingdom of gods and goddesses, a dwarf, some sprites and the coveted golden ring (sound familiar?). By the time you’re done, you’ll have them begging for more!


5. Get them dancing!
Picture this; two little kidlets, a YouTube clip of a glamorous Argentinian pair performing a Tango, and some divine Piazzolla. CUTE AS! If you haven’t already convinced your little prince and princess they belong in the ballet, there are so many other dance forms represented in classical music: Chopin’s Waltzes, Rodrigo’s Fandangos, the Polkas of the Strausses … opportunities for the short ones to get down low to the classical flow, are endless.


6. Make it fun
Lemony Snicket’s The Composer Is Dead, is a hilarious detective tale about - you guessed it - a dead composer, and the suspect members of the orchestra. With jokes for the kids and the adults alike, the story - also available in picture book form with accompanying CD - unfolds with the added educational benefit of information about how the instruments of an orchestra work together. 

7. Take them to see live music
There is some great live concert programming for kids in Australia. From Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’s ‘Meet the Orchestra’ with The Wiggles, to the Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s ‘Family Classics’ series, the concerts usually include a portion of time where the kids are able to get up and meet the players, and see the instruments close up. It’s one thing listening to the radio at home or in the car, but it’s quite another when the little munchkins can make the connection between the sounds they’re hearing, and the motions they see on stage.

In the event that there’s just not enough time or money between sport, ballet, school and bah/bat mitzvahs to actually get out and hear the music live, we’ve created a kid-friendly playlist for you to pop on the stereo at every opportunity. Turn. It. UP!
