i play the trumpet

Kay but I’m actually dead after that video of Tom Ellis playing the trumpet because if you look in the background there’s like a trombone slide and like a baritone or something chilling on the table and I can only image them just going down the checklist to see what they can stick in the show. Like: “Trombone? …yes, Trumpet?… yes, Piano?…no.”

had a recent convo that further cemented how I don’t understand straight people

was talking irl to a friend of a friend, when suddenly, he asked me:

“would you date a girl who plays the trumpet?”

and, y’know, I’m bi or whatever, so my answer isn’t an immediate ‘no,’ but I got confused, because what the fuck is the ‘straight dude’ answer to that question?

that’s such a non-question to me, why wouldn’t you date a girl who plays the trumpet? and this wasn’t in the context of worrying about noise or whatever, we’d just been talking about what musical instruments we play

is it some sort of concern of being emasculated somehow bc the trumpet is a loud instrument or something? is it an innuendo? was he trying to set me up on a date with someone???

anyway, my adhd ended up kicking in and transporting the convo in a completely different direction, because I was so flummoxed that I think I forgot to even answer the question

I miss my Pep-Band days of High School - playing music was the best part of my studies.

I’m really thrilled about @therealjacksepticeye recording sessions of playing the drums! Just another side of Jack that the community gets to fall in love with.

Keep Rockin’!

(Apologies if drum kid anatomy is off - I play the trumpet, not the drums >.> )


Up next on weird instruments I found at NAMM: piccolo French horn, “wave” flute, Bass trumpet, and a trombone with a slide AND keys

imagine having a snap streak with your tc, where the majority of the time you’re sending each other goofy selfies and while in their class, you send candid photos of each other.

things heard in the band hall

(idea: @thingsalwaysmatter)

“This section, you need to gently stroke the cat. Just gently pet its fur. Right now, you’re scalping the cat and cutting off its skin. Pet the cat.”


“I’m just so glad I beat Connor”
“You beat Connor?”
“Yeah I got fourth chair and he got fifth chair!”
*connor, from across the room* “FIGHT ME KAYCEE”

“Carson quit playing or I will shove your trumpet up your ass”

“Judson, let Carson out of the locker”
“But he likes it in there”
*muffled swearing*

*carson is playing into his trumpet while judson presses the valves for him*
*riley, who is observing, to me* “I’m pretty sure they’re gay for each other”

“Audrey chipped my reed.”
“I did not!”
“Yes you did. I tested for fingerprints.”
“No, Bella, you saw her do it.”
“Quiet, Brandt.”

“What about one of those squeeze yogurt things?”

“Look at that bird. It’s sitting on my car.”
“I bet you two fifty and a chipped reed it’ll poop.”

Q. “Phone Lock Screen”
JM: My lock screen is a photo of BTS. I like photos where I am with everyone. My lock screen right now is from the video filming for our fan meeting in Korea. It used to be one from a concert, but I changed it recently.
V: (showing his screen) BABAM! It’s Chet Baker! (a Jazz Trumpet Player)
JK: Mine is solid black.
JM & V: Solid Black?
JK: Yeah, wait a minute (takes phone out to show his lock screen). See!
JM & V
: It’s true!!

Q. “If you were to sing to your crush”
V: I wouldn’t be the one singing, but I would play her “I Fall In Love Too Easily” by the trumpet player Chet Baker. There was a movie based on this song (BORN TO BE BLUE), so I would talk to her about the movie and recommend it to her.
JM: That’s cool~. I would write a song for her.
: Me too! I’ve never written a song for a girl before, but if it’s for someone I like I bet I would be able to.
JM: The type of song would depend on the person, and you’d never know how to write it until the time comes. My ideal type is the person who I would fall in love with. I would want to be with them all the time (shy).

Q. “Things you’re aiming for in 2017”
V: “Actor-dol (an idol who is also good at acting)” is what I’m aiming for! I’m in an on-going Korean drama, “Hwarang,” which will also be aired in Japan soon, so please watch it. Only look at me!
JM: “Only look at me” (lol). I want to go on a trip with my friends and family~
JK: That’s good too. I want to become a professional bowler!1
JM & V: ?
JK: From last November, I’ve been learning from a teacher and my score went as high as 240!
JM: 3 months ago I used to be better than you~
JK: Eh!? Really?
