Xe watched in confusion as one of xis human crew mates ‘john’ stretched a 'rubber band’ between its forelimbs and pointed it in the direction of the human crew mates 'Katherine’ and 'Carlos’.
'John’ let out a loud
“Hey look at this”
'Katherine’ and 'Carlos’ did actually turn to look at 'John’. Upon seeing the 'rubber band’ the two humans ducked for cover as 'John’ laughed at them.
Xe would later find out the reason for this response when a stray 'rubber band’ from an all out war between the human crew mates would hit Xem in the chest causing a stinging pain.
But for now Xe just left the humans alone with their strange behaviors.
Listening to a new album by your favorite band is weird on one hand because for the first time in a long time you can’t sing along but on the other hand it’s amazing because you hear that familiar voice you adore and you sit there in awe remembering why you love them so much
Okay I wanna tell you, if you are a fan of any Band or Artist or Actor or whatever it might be, you do NOT have to love everything they are doing. If a fan comes at you and tells you, you are not a real fan because you don’t like this and that about them, just ignore them. You don’t like it? You still support and Love them? Great, you are a fan. Easy right? And to all the people out there who tell other fans that they aren’t real fans, stop feeling like you’re better than everyone else. Thanks!
Humans are weird-Marching Bands/Other non-vocal bands
What if aliens only had singers for their music sure the had drums but any thing more no. so their songs have a large focus on vocals and are treated with respect and humans come along with guitars, trumpets, xylophones, flute, etc. And the aliens are baffled by how we use them to make beautiful music. so imagine a human taking their alien friend to a college football game. ———————————————————————————————————- Human Steve had warned me that football was a violent sport but I knew humans were strange violent creatures due to the fact they taped a knife to a cleaning robot and then proceeded to name it. But I was not ready for what Human Steve called a marching band. They carried unfamiliar instruments out onto the field. Then when they started to play I was dumbfounded due to the fact there was no singing yet it felt as though there were supposed to be words. I was already blown away by that, but then I realized that they are moving together to form images like they are some sort of hive mind.I asked Human Steve “How are they moving while making music.
“I don’t know. Maybe ask one of the members after the game.”
So I waited through the brutal game which apparently the side Human Steve was rooting for lost but it didn’t seem to ruin his mood. so he took me down to one of the bands so they can explain how they did it.
“Excuse me ma’am my friend here wants to ask you a few questions.”
“After I saw the band play I was wondering how you played and moved as if it was nothing.”
“Oh. Okay I thought I was in trouble but now I can see I am not. The music we play we rehearse it then we memorize it, then we memorize charts and how to get there with music and also do it with style.”
“Okay. But how do play those instruments.”
He gestures vaguely to some brass instruments.
“those you blow air through them in a special way.”
“how about those.”
Gesturing now to some woodwinds.
“same thing but in a different way.”
“Thank you for answering my questions.”
As I go away with Human Steve he tells me that there are people who pursue this as a career and lists of some I may like.
In case anyone was confused I am talking about american football
So at every competition, during awards our captains have this dance that they do on the field while waiting. Its literally just air thrusting. And every time, at least one band joins in. We’ve gotten our whole band to do it. Its literally just a bunch of high schoolers air thrusting. Its a tradition at this point it’s been going on for years.
We had an old snowman prop from a show just sitting in the copy room. A tuba player entered the copy room and turned the lights off. Everyone heard him moaning, the lights were turned on and he’s jerking off frosty’ nose.
People printed a bunch of pictures of our band director out and hung them up all around the band room. No reason, just because.
