Dear kids that are starting band for the first time.

Instruments don’t have gender. If you are a boy and you want to play flute. Do it. If you are a girl and you want to play tuba. Do it. No one can tell you that since you are a boy you have to play saxophone, trumpet or another instrument like that. Or since you are a girl you have to play flute, clarinet or some instrument like that. Play whatever you want to. No one can tell you other wise.


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

Band instruments as things I've heard them say
  • Piccolo: .... (I don't think I've ever heard them speak. Thinks they're better than everyone and doesn't talk to other band kids)
  • Flute: guess what 'band director' said about 'piccolo'
  • Oboe: *quietly playing a solo, very concentrated*
  • Bassoon: *squeak*
  • Clarinet: we're gonna play those two notes ff instead of p so it sounds like 'DOOT DOOT' wanna help
  • Bass clarinet: I don't think I play here
  • Alto saxophone: I can fit my whole mouthpiece down my throat I'll show you
  • Tenor saxophone: we either play 4 half notes the entire song...or constant 32nd notes....I don't understand
  • Bari saxophone: so do I do sectionals with the trombones, or...?
  • Trombones: *screams into instrument*
  • Tuba: why am I even here
  • French horn: (secluded, doesn't speak much. Very put together. Know what they're doing)
  • Trumpet: *clearly plays wrong note* that wasn't me
  • Percussion: *screaming* RATCHET SUPREMACY

March 8 is International Women’s Day!

If you haven’t seen it before, I highly recommend having a look at Suby Raman’s post “Graphing Gender in America’s Top Orchestras.” You might be surprised – or perhaps, sadly unsurprised – at just how massive some of the proportions are. All I’m saying is, there’s a reason why I’ve got female characters who play trumpet, percussion, and bass. 

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.


Klance marching band au where Keith and Lance compete against each other Keith plays the trumpet (because why not) and Lance is on color guard 

They’re also both mutually pining after each other but they don’t know that

SEVENTEEN as things I have heard in the band hall
  • Seungcheol: Hey I have only used cork grease as chapstick in dire situations
  • Jeonghan: Ugh those color guard uniforms look like the 80's just vomited on a turkey
  • Joshua: Band camp is basically bible camp, right?
  • Vernon: If I put a match is a flute and blow, would I have a liable weapon?
  • Minghao: I locked a kid in a trombone locker, does that count as hazing?
  • Jun: lmao dude look the "bass clarinet" music says "ass clarinet"
  • Woozi: Who took my phonebook? I need to sit on them so I can reach the tuba mouthpiece
  • Seungkwan: *plays an octave above the rest of the clarinets just so he has a 'solo' during grand nationals*
  • Dino: The bassoon sounds like a giant mosquito but I think I like it
  • Hoshi: Oml you can't touch my flags I spent 5 hours sewing it together just for this freaking show
  • Seokmin: I'm not better than you, I just play the trumpet
  • Wonwoo: Is it possible to strangle yourself using a tambourine?
  • Mingyu: I swear to god if you empty your spit valve near my chair OnE MoRe TiMe
Silly fluff meme

Send one for your muse to…

🙈 - Jump out and wrap my muse in a blanket as their “hostage”

🍳 - Bring my muse breakfast in bed except it’s just cereal with whipped cream

👙- Wait for my muse to come home in a sexy outfit… that’s really ridiculous and silly

⚽️ - Get a soccer ball and call it their son, urging my muse to give it a name

🎹 - Write and perform a silly song about one specific aspect of my muse

🔦 - Tell me muse they lost something and need help finding it, just to kiss my muse and say “nevermind, found it!”

✉️ - Send letters to my muse in the mail… when they live together

📯 - Buy a trumpet and play the “when mom isn’t home” tune when your muse wants attention from my muse

🔓 - “accidentally” handcuff both our muses to the bed, forgot where they put the key five minutes later.

🖍 - Draw on the wall with crayon about how they feel about my muse… then spending eight hours scrubbing it all off

👼 - Literally just bring home a baby and saying “congrats”. Nobody knows where they got the baby

🐱 - Bringing home a kitten and naming if after my muse… losing the kitten and our muses search around for three hours to try and find it

👏 - Cheer over enthusiastically everytime my muse completes any task, even if it’s just them changing the channel on tv

Meeting Me

Hey all! So, the votes are in, and people want me to introduce myself. 

Hey :) My name is Rekina! I’m from a small town In Saskatchewan where aliens invading would be the least strange thing Ive seen. It wouldn’t even crack the top ten. I’m 19, and working as a reporter at my local radio station (Yes I go on air, yes it’s fun) 

I’m a story teller by nature and by choice! I’m working on finishing and getting my first novel published. I just passed 45,000 words this morning. I’m also an avid reader, and I love music. I love to sing, and i play trumpet! 

As most of you have probably seen, i tend to end up in some bizarre situations, and I decided to share them with the world so you can all laugh at my pain.

I’m one of those people who went from hating everything about themselves to high self esteem and confidence. I interview bands and politicians without a problem, usually sassing their heads off and generally being witty.

 I figure introductions are best accompanied by pictures to get a feel for who I am.

some days i look like this:

or this

and sometimes this

But then i also tend to look like this

or this

and even this

You could definitely say I am a goof ball.

I’m very adventurous, which often leads to my strange situations. I’m a Gryfindor, and a Thunderbird (The reckless house and the reckless house dammit) I love hiking, photography, and cliff jumping!

I do a lot of travelling, and I always have a tendency to go off the beaten path

I am also a absolute klutz, which has lead to me almost dying many times

Yeah I almost tumbled off the top of Arthurs Seat, Edinburgh. Not particularly high, but it still would have sucked.

While i often find myself in many dangerous situations, I have a tendency to never actually get hurt. Survived a stingray: check! Got chased of a 40ft cliff by a angry chicken: sprained my ankle, but totally fine. Usually i end up in these situations by my own stupidity. For example:

So in this photo I made my travel buddy sit on my legs (as this is a very steep hill) so i could dangle over the edge and get a picture of some cool scottish grass.(Cough, nerd!) She snapped this photo to show photographers do ridiculous things to get a photo. However i didn’t check out the area first. At first I though the grass was just poking me extra hard, cause my arms and chest were stinging. It wasn’t grass

I had laid in a patch of stinging nettle which like poison ivy for those who don’t know. This was at the beginning of our trek to the top, so i just kinda dealt with it. I was covered in itchy red welts and blisters for the better part of 5hrs ( we moved slow because one of our companions was on crutches. I physically had to push her butt up in some spots, but we made it)

Due to my own stupidity i also almost fell off the Cliffs of Moher. (800foot cliffs in ireland) I wanted to see what they looked like straight down, crawled right to the edge, and stuck my chest over to take a picture looking straight down. This, however wasn’t the problem.

The sea breeze was so strong, that had I not been from Saskatchewan I would have toppled right over the edge. People behind me were screaming, “WE’LL CATCH YOU DON’T WORRY” as they, themselves are getting knocked about by the wind. I just kinda rock forward and look back like”chill ya;ll ive watered plants in worse than this” Because saskatchewan is windy af and i swear we are built with anchors in our feet because wind just does not phase us.

I’m a sassy lil canadian reportre, enjoying this incredible aliens and humans trope. And this is me!
