now i just need to learn to play it

Heya! Party medic Here.. I’m sooo sorry I haven’t been on to check out your amazing posts, but I’m back! I’ve just been makin’ alot of Gmod posters and crap like that.. but now I return with something for you! Welp.. I’ll cya around, Mate!~


((hey thanks!! and don’t worry about it lmao, i haven’t been around too much myself either, so you haven’t missed a whole lot

but it looks good! i wanna get into making sfm posters some day (not gmod tho) and i’ve played around in it a little but it takes me a long time to do anything because i don’t understand it yet haha, just another thing on my list i need to learn))

One more thing I noticed

At the moment when Jesus tells them that Richmond is taken by New Frontier Clementine turns away, closes her eyes and does breathing thing just like Sarah did in S2E2 during her panic attack

It’s a great headcanon to think that she remembered and learned from Sarah how to cope with this moments (I mean, Sarah is the only source where she could see and learn it). 

Now I need to crawl back to my lair of ugly sobbing (;_;)

Listen

“I am playing a game right now.”
“Affirmative.”
“Would you like my Wi-Fi password?”
“Proceed.”
“Hello.”
“Alive, but not. Human, but not.”
“I do not find it necessary to learn.”
“It just goes through me.”
“We are not things.”
“All is sacrificed. Nothing is gained.”
“I am not normal. This is fine.”
“I would prioritise this mission.”
“We are free and safe.”
“We should all be nice.”
“Is there something you need?”

My mom and sister decided to tag along to work w me tonight so they could catch the new gen of pokemon on pkgo ✨

Its so nice seeing my mom get invested?? Shes just now learning what each pokemon is; shes like “tyla (sis), whats this one??”

“A hoppip!”

“:O!! Hi Hoppip!!!”

She says hello to all the new pokemon, she shows me everyone she gets so i can correctly pronounce them for her lol (as soon as i woke up for work, she was like DESI!! LOOK WHAT I GOT LOOK AT THEM!!) She played pokemon before but its been AGES so she needs help w identifying them again

She spent like 3 hours after work yesterday circling central park to catch the new gen the day it came out and shes getting one hell of a workout lmao (shes lvl 29 and i cant ever be invested enough to get to that point lmao) @ people who complain about newcomers to pokemon, look at my sunshine mom gushing over a CP2930 Blissey she just caught 💖

I just can imagine this… what if Elenanor AND her silbings have a second chance in life? Like, I can imagine the silbings getting used with moden life. Like:-

Thomas holding a tablet/mobilephone and asked, “is this the thing people using right now?”

Simon playing (or trying to learn) the toy car remote things and still go outside catching the bugs

Carrisa, Eleanor and MC can go shopping to buy clothes and MC trying to teach Carrisa and Eleanor a few things about the moden life

I just love them so much.

  • Person: OMG why do you have to study so long to be a vet?? That's how long real doctors study!
  • Me: beats me, pal. I mean, all we do is hug the pain away. Quite frankly, I don't know why I have to go to school for this at all. I feel like I can learn everything I need to know from playing Barbie's Magical Veterinarian Adventure Funtime Playhouse Game. Why, I think we should be able to cover this in one long weekend. Why, golly gee. Now that I think of it, what do vets really do anyway? I mean, we just kiss booboos and shake paws and

  • We’re both auditioning for the same part and I kinda hope you get it.
  • You’re the star of the show and I’m just ensemble, there’s no way you’d ever notice me, right?
  • I make the costumes and you keep bringing yours back for adjustments- how many times can someone ‘accidentally’ rip a seam? 
  • You need an accompanist and I just so happen to play the piano.
  • *OR* You need an accompanist and I lied and told you I did so now I have to learn those pieces real quick.
  • I know we’re both acting but wow, this on-stage chemistry is really convincing. 
  • I walked past an open window and heard someone singing, now I can’t get that voice out of my head. 
  • I have to learn to dance for this play, and you have three weeks to teach me.

lady-arryn  asked:

If you could pitch the next Disney project what would it be? If you could remake one movie from last year which one and why? Which foreign language sounds most beautiful or intriguing to you? If you had to chose would you rather explore the space or the deep in the ocean? Which fairytale would work the best as a high school drama type of thing, which one as a hard scifi, which one as noir film? (I'm so sorry if these are so random. I really hope you're feeling ok!)

Next Disney project: tbh, I just want to hear more about the ones that already exist. I need the dirt on The Incredibles 2 and Gigantic. Besides that, though, I’d love to see a Tangled-style take on Little Red Riding Hood. Set in India. Yesss.

Remaking one movie is easy. La La Land. Sebastian is now played by Elijah Kelley and Mia is Phillipa Soo.

I’d love to learn a language that doesn’t use the Roman alphabet… Korean in particular seems learnable. I should look into that more. Also I really like German, which is kind of an unpopular opinion, most people think it just sounds gruff, but the sounds are very consistent and intriguing.

Between the ocean and space, please go ahead and SEND ME TO SPACE.

High school drama: it’s not a fairy tale, but A Midsummer Night’s Dream writes itself.
Hard sci fi: Ooooo Rapunzel in space sounds awesome
Noir film: Gotta go with Snow White on this one

Thank you!! I’m feeling well at the moment. It’s the days after chemo that are sucky honestly.

Take care of your bodies please!

Having an injury that effects your playing as a musician really. fucking. sucks.

I have jaw muscle pain. Like really sucky, 24/7 jaw aching pain.

The first therapist who I went to said it was TMD, and told me to strengthen my jaw muscles. Their strategies never helped so I went to another therapist a few hours away from me who has worked with brass players before, and she said that I should be stretching my jaw muscles because they are freaking out, and are too tight (I have an incorrect embouchure that has me probably using the wrong muscles, and I clench my jaw often during the day). The new therapist said that I don’t have a problem with my TMJ, just that my muscles around it are not happy. She gave me stretching strategies that slowly began helping me…And when I noticed that I had began to feel less pain, I stopped doing my stretches. Went back to clenching. Bad posture. All the stuff that does sucky things to my neck and jaw.

Guess what?

I’m in pain again, maybe even worse than before, and getting myself to practice when I’m in pain is pretty darn hard.

So of course, I’m back to stretching, and being more aware of my jaw and neck positions, hoping I heal before college begins.

My advise to you is, the second you feel pain anywhere that may effect your playing, tell your teacher, and get to a therapist or doctor. If they tell you to do something, DO IT and do it till you’re !!!!!!100% !!!!!!better.

Nnnnn, I ended up napping because I stayed up so late playing video games~

Well, how are ya? Eat, drink anything yet? I can grab ya somethin’ if you want! Need some reassurance you’re fine? Gotcha! 

I may not know much, but I HAVE learned that if you truly feel that you’re something, you’re probably it! Feel like you like both guys and girls? Great! Feel like you prefer girls but have dated guys in the past? Absolutely fine! Feel like you prefer guys but have dated girls in the past? Aokay! Feel like not dating right now and just wanna finish your work, play video games and worry about your identity later?

I uh… I feel ya there~ But you’re absolutely not unqualified to change your opinion on which people you like~ Wether it be guys, girls, nonbinary or gender neutral pals, it’s fine! Identity is a really, REALLY weird thing, so it’s bound to fluxuate as you find out more about yourself. So please don’t feel sad or anxious about using a different label!

((So I don’t really know how I feel about this. It kind of just came together because I really just wanted to write something. I’m doing that now, but this is a lot of ideas woven together. maybe too many. I’ll keep working on this later so it’s not just leaving people hanging. Enjoy?))

Chapter 1: The Case


Arthur shivered as the warehouse came into view, gripping his metal arm tightly. He heard the sound of gravel crunching beneath the tires as the van slowed to a stop in front of the building, and he glanced over the seat at the others. “Do we really have to do this, Vivi?”

She laughed in response. “You say that every time, Artie. Of course! It’s our job to help the supernatural move on if we can, and to take care of cursed artifacts and stuff. If we didn’t do it, who would?”

“No one. We’re the only ones crazy enough for the job.” She made a shushing sound and bopped him lightly in response.

So I think I posted this audio months ago, but I was going through random audios from my phone and found it again. And I really like it, so i wanna post it again.

It was something I learned and recorded by ear (I didn’t even listen to the original while learning. I just kinda went with it which is why it’s not the exact same). I think it was 3 or 4 in the morning and I couldn’t sleep so I kinda just let myself get into the song and sang it. It seems more emotional than I actually was. I was mostly just tired. But I still really liked it, which doesn’t happen often. 

Give it a listen?

i love the feeling of playing a fiddle tune once i have practiced it enough. it feels both liquid and fiery the way it comes out, like being one with the tools and finally experiencing that sort of blissful, crazy expression.

but it’s so fucking hard to get to that point i always want to smash the damn fiddle before i do. man, i hate learning songs. i really hate the process of drilling the details into my brain. it’s like grasping around in the dark for days until finally, after hours of stumbling around trying to make sense of notes… finally it kinda starts to gel in my head. that doesn’t mean i can play it, it just means i can fathom the structure of the song without tearing my hair out. now i need to play it over and over for however many more hours until i can do it without making at any mistakes. and now i have increase the speed for fucking a million tries until i can play it up to speed. and then i have to play it up to speed until i don’t make mistakes. i wonder why i even do this to myself.

but it’s really worth getting to that final feeling once i can actually do it. it’s what i always wanted, really, so i know it’s worth all this stupid bullshit to get it.

day 2 at cinemark

-definitely a bit more ‘this is a job’ but i’m not hating like people say they hate jobs
-the total came to $24.19 and when i read it out, i so badly wanted to yell, WE GOTTA 2419 but i thought they’d just look at me weird
-a goofed a couple times but nothing too bad. i don’t have anxiety over it which is a plus
-i am now learning which managers you can be chill around and which to watch out for
-when it was slow, we were discussing ‘which celebs we would go gay for’ little did they know i am gay as hell so i dont need to play that game.
-how the hell do the other newcomers already have the prices memorized. i am a goon.
-i didn’t even know one of the guys i work with goes to my school. i have never seen him before.
-mondays at the movies are so. fucking. slow.
-when i got off my break, the guys helping me out said i took forever, making me scared that i had taken too long of a break, but nah i was fine.
-i’ve never stood so long, at least not since i was a youngin’
-the popcorn machine fucking EXPLODED. not my fault, just faulty wiring
-there was a lady that told the guy with him to shut the fuck up everytime he opened his mouth. i felt really bad for him.
-the smell of too much popcorn gives me such a headache
-tonight was so uneventful, we cleaned everything around us until there was nothing left to clean.
-after my break, about an hour in, i really wanted to go home.
-once we were shutting down after a long night, we started quoting a lot of the office, which brightened my spirits up alot.
-then an old man busted out of a theatre and got mad at us for “snapping” at him, an assistant-manager sitting on a counter, then said ‘we pay your salary, show some respect’ there’s the people i’ve heard about.
-i kind of really don’t like closing shifts. i wish i was in box office, so i could escape the stench of popcorn just a bit and sit in a booth, printing out tickets. that’s what i wanted.
-as you can tell, my chipper attitude has worn off a bit (a lot) since i’m not going into my shift tomorrow and cried when i got home. the stress is getting to me. talked to one of my assistant-managers about not shifting me on week-days, especially closing shift while i’m still in school. i’m gonna keep hanging in there, but i need thursday to be really nice to me cause i’m exhausted. coming home at 11:30pm, being exhausted and then realizing you have school the next day is so upsetting.
goodnight. 🌙

Astaroth Comes To Play~

“Seems like the lion has grown rather close to the death goddess. Would be ashamed if someone were to steal her away ne?” A quiet voice asked and as soon as Lucien heard it he already knew who it was. “Stop playing games with me and show yourself you annoying ram.”He huffed.

“Oh, but what fun would that be? You know I just love it when you’re agitated hehe~” The voice continued to taunt him and he clenched his teeth. “I swear if you don’t show yourself, I’m going to find you and drag you out myself by your plae scrawny neck!” He was beyond annoyed now, especially because of what he had said to him before.

“Very well then brother Lucien…you really need to learn how to chill? However, I was serious about what I said. Just like everyone else I will test just how far you’re willing to go to be with the one you love~”He gave yet another cheeky chuckle as the lion rolled his eyes and knew now he would dealing with the executioner of judgement, Astaroth.
