such an amazing player

the way you workin’ that motion, boy you got me in a trance

my opinions on the instruments since you guys are asking (reblog and add yours!!1!)

french horn: honestly so pure. i always think of Dvorak’s 9th when i hear them and u g h y e a s

tuba: my bias here should be obvious

euphonium / baritone: honestly they’re so pretty and cute and nice to listen to. basically improved versions of tubas (sorry @me)

flute: pretty but anyone who can play them is clearly dabbling in dark magic

mellophone: i haven’t met one but i really like their sound. its so nice and… not to be redundant but mellow

trumpet: tbh i could listen to trumpets all day. even beginning players sound amazing to me

trombone: i always listen to the trombones when i’m confused on my part, so they’re sort of my anchor. thanks frens 

piccolo: similar to flutes but the notes are even prettier and the players are using even more dark magic

saxophone: honestly saxophones=awesome jazz to me, and i love jazz, so 

clarinet: they sound like the ethereal wood fairy version of flutes (im not sure why i think this). there’s a really good clarinet player at our school so i always think of their solos when clarinets get brought up

oboe: like clarinets but more flute and less wood fairy

bassoon: oboes but stronger

percussion: thank you kind friends for keeping the beat when i am too lazy to count

piano: probably the very purest musical insturment

viola: like with french horns i always think of Dvorak and how awesome y'all’s parts are in his stuff

violin: amazing but also definitely dark magic

cello: i live to listen to cello solos. (also just Dvorak in general, but the two are intertwined)

bass: you’re the string version of me. i respect you

tl;dr I REALLY LIKE CLASSICAL MUSIC

  • Holster: Shoot, Rans
  • Ransom: He's handsome
  • Ransom: Tall. So tall! 6'4"!

  • Ransom: he's an amazing hockey player
  • Ransom: and we're both d-men
  • Holster: Rans...
  • Ransom: LET ME FINISH

  • Holster: Justin, I had no idea you-
  • Ransom: It's Alexei Mashkov

  • when my team scores a short handed goal: wow it's so amazing how talented hockey players are like wow can you believe the kind of skill that takes
  • the other team scored a short handed goal: um? illegal

“We don’t watch YouTube gamers just for the games they play, we watch for the experience. The camaraderie of reacting to the same sights, sounds, and stories, together. We watch for the human aspect- the human aspect that can’t be had with a simple recording or playthrough. It’s this human aspect that creates friendship and empathy. Shared emotions and experiences, trust and enjoyment. It’s this human aspect that provides the foundation for a community. Because what you feel is what we do, too. When you reach new heights, you reach them with us. And when you hit rock bottom, you surely aren’t alone. When you show emotion we see it all, but vulnerability is a part of sharing. And just as we’ve gained from your sharing, we’d like to share our emotion with you too”
-Markiplier 8mil fan reaction video

This is so beautiful and captures the essence of why these communities are so great in the world, I just felt like this needed a throwback. I haven’t been watching Mark for that long, only a few months, but him and the people from the community he built have had such a profound and unique influence on my life already. It’s sad to me that so many people don’t understand and even shun people for watching gamers in their free time, I wish I could show them the beauty in some of these communities.

Boston Bruins memes
  • “Patrice Bergeron is the most perfect human being, like today he [thing that normal people do all the time].”
  • Acting like Brandon Carlo is very short. Offer to get things off of high shelves for him. 
  • Saying your practicing the shootout when you’re doing literally anything else. 
  • “What Happened to [traded player]?” “Oh Chara ate him when his time came, soon our time will come too.”
  • The TD Garden is haunted by Mike Milbury’s shoe. Any weird noise someone looks alarmed and said “the shoe’s here.” bonus points if it’s around an away player unaware of the meme.
  • Every time something inconvenient happens they say “thanks, kessel,” a la the “thanks, Obama” meme.
  • Their “pranks” are purposefully super lame, think the “you asked for two ice cubes but i only gave you one” line from spongebob. Act like it was an amazing prank and the prankee just got owned.
  • Call montreal canadiens players their boyfriends. 
  • “Backes look at this cute picture of your son” [shows backes a picture of a dog/cat].
  • The Torey Krug/Brad Marchand height war. Everybody has to pick a side.
  • “My best friend, sidney crosby…”

Dear Bonnie, I’m a coward. I should be saying this to your face not writing this letter but I know if I do you’ll talk me out of running away from all my problems. And you’re going to make me face the future without Elena and that you’re going to make me the best man that I can possibly be, same way she did and I’m absolutely terrified of failing you both. So I’m leaving because I’d rather let you down once then let you down for the rest of your life, and I hope it’s the happiest life because you Bonnie Bennett are an amazing woman, a mediocre cross word puzzle player and my best friend. With love and respect. Damon.

- Dear Bonnie,

I am a coward. I should be saying this to your face, not writing this letter, but… I know if I do, you’ll talk me out of running away from all my problems. You’re gonna make me face a future without Elena. Then you’re gonna help make me the best man that I can possibly be. The same way she did. And I’m absolutely terrified of failing you both. 

So I’m leaving. Because I’d rather let you down once than let you down for the rest of your life. 

And I hope it’s the happiest life. Because you, Bonnie Bennett, are an amazing woman… a mediocre crossword puzzle player …and my best friend. 

With great love and respect… 

..Damon.

“People tend to think that hate is the most dangerous emotion. But love is equally dangerous,” Will said. “There are many stories of spirits haunting the places and people who meant the most to them. In fact, there are more of those than there are revenge stories.”
