I made a slideshow about how to create a fictional character… I got most of the information from the ‘start writing fiction’ (free) course on the OpenUniversity website and found it incredibly useful so here’s a visual version for you :)
In case you were feeling sad.
This is the third time I’ve reblogged this today and I DON’T EVEN CARE
Fun Story: My director kept telling me and my tenor sax buddy to play softer. No matter what we did, it wasn’t soft enough for him. So getting frustrated, I told my buddy “Dont play this time. Just fake it”
Our Band Director then informed us we sounded perfect.
To my readers: “p” means quiet, “pp” means really quiet. I’ve never seen “pppp” before haha.
On the contrast, “f” means loud, and “ffff” probably means so loud you go unconscious.
I had ffff in a piece once and my conductor told me to play as loudly as physically possible without falling off my chair…
Me and my trombone buddies had “ffff” and he sat next to me and played so hard that he fell out of his chair.
The lengths we go for music.
Okay yeah so I play the bass clarinet and the amount of air you have to move and the stiffness of the reed means it only has two settings and that is loud and louder, with an optional LOUDEST that includes a 50% probability of HORRIBLE CROAKING NOISE which is the bass equivalent of the ubiquitous clarinet shriek.
One day, when I was in concert band in high school, we got a new piece handed out for the first time, and there was a strange little commotion back in the tuba section — whispering, and pointing at something in the music, and swatting at each other’s hands all shhh don’t call attention to it. And although they did attract the attention of basically everyone else in the band, they managed to avoid being noticed by the band director, who gave us a few minutes to look over our parts and then said, “All right, let’s run through it up to section A.”
And here we are, cheerfully playing along, sounding reasonably competent — but everyone, when they have the attention to spare, is keeping an eye on the tuba players. They don’t come in for the first eight measures or so, and then when they do come in, what we see is:
[reeeeeeally deep breath]
[COLOSSAL FOGHORN NOISE]
The entire band stops dead, in the cacophonous kind of way that a band stops when it hasn’t actually been cued to stop. The band director doesn’t even say anything, just looks straight back at the tubas and makes a helpless sort of why gesture.
In unison, the tuba players defend themselves: “THERE WERE FOUR F’S.”
FFFF is not really a rational dynamic marking for any instrument, but for the love of all that is holy why would you put it in a tuba part.
This is the best band post
Everyone else go home
Oh man, so I play trombone, and we got this piece called Florentiner Marsch by Julius Fucik, and we saw this
which is 8 fortes. We were shocked until,
that is 24 fortes who the fuck does that
Who does that?
This guy. Take a good look - that is the moustache of a man with nothing to lose.

In the post you’re about to make, replace cis/white/hetero/male people with the Jews and if the result sounds like something that could be straight out of Mein Kampf, you should probably reconsider your social justice blogging habits.
Oh look…. the representation of this entire god forsaken website
I’m saddened by the accuracy of this -Eleven
The accuracy hurts.
I HAVE NEVER HIT THE “REBLOG” BUTTON FASTER IN THE TWO YEARS THAT I’VE BEEN HERE.
If this doesn’t get an assload of notes, it’s because the idiots on here can’t stand looking in a goddamn mirror.
But really, can we discuss the fact that all these caricatures are all female?
And I don’t mean that in a sjw way, either. This is a decent representation of parts of the community on tumblr. It really can be this hypocritical. However, you have to admit there is something problematic in including only female characters in a depiction. It presents these issues as gendered. When really, anyone can be a cunt.
Nick broke a piece of tooth off…. on coffee.
Stress writing for me. Whenever I feel really negative or too bottle up who bad things I write it down. But when I don’t want to share everything I do this. Write everything out, but only 3 lines 2-3 words per line. It gives me the smooth flowing feel of writing, so I don’t get distracted jogging back to the front after each word, and it turns into this. A messy unreadable jumble of dark lines. I got it all written and don’t have to share. Plus it looks as messed up and angry as I felt.
I feel like I can leave it all on the page now.
With a few doodles that were already there.
