play in a band

this whole discourse is like a group of kids walking up to the band director and saying that because theyre in theater, they should be in band. they dont play any instruments, and have no desire to learn the instruments, but they love the atmosphere of the band and want in.

they use the argument that plays have band pits in them, so that means they totally fit in, but refuse to listen to the band director when he says that in band, you need to play some kind of instrument, and they call him a thesbiphobe

thats how ridiculous all of this is


On this day in music history: March 22, 1963 - “Please Please Me”, the debut album by The Beatles is released. Produced by George Martin, it is recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London from September 11, 1962, November 26, 1962 and February 11, 1963. Following the huge breakthrough success of the single “Please Please Me” in the UK, producer George Martin calls the group down to London for a one day session to record their first full length. The material recorded consists of six cover versions of songs the band has been playing in their live act along with eight original songs by Lennon and McCartney. Recorded live (with few overdubs) to one inch two-track tape, the three three hour sessions (on February 11, 1963) run from 10 in the morning until approximately 10:30 at night. In roughly 585 minutes (9 hours and 45 minutes), at a cost of only £400 ($609.85 USD), The Beatles create one of the best selling albums in British music history. The album spends nearly five months at number one on the UK album chart, before it is replaced by their second album “With The Beatles” in December of 1963. Originally issued both mono and stereo, the first edition UK stereo LP (black Parlophone label with metallic gold print) has less than 1,000 copies manufactured with this label, becoming one of the rarest and most sought after Beatles albums by collectors. One near mint copy sells for over $18,000 on eBay in September of 2011. Issued in different forms in the US during the 60’s (“Introducing The Beatles” and “The Early Beatles”), the original UK version of “Please Please Me” is finally issued domestically in February of 1987 when it is first released on CD. When the album is remastered on CD in 2009, the stereo CD uses the original Parlophone gold label for the first time since its original release in 1963.

My boyfriend broke up with me because he was afraid of what might happen because of homophobia and also because he didn't feel he could be in a relationship anymore because of his depression but we're still best friends and I love him lots and I make sure he's safe and well and I support him a ton and I'm so happy to have him in my life (also we play music together in our high school jazz band)

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

I’m well acquainted with v i l l a i n s that live in my bed
They beg me to write them so they’ll never die when I’m d e a d
