This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
favorite things about this
- literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
- the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
- all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
- that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
I JUST DIED
Fun fact: Cheetahs only attack prey that runs
jesus that is good to know.
Yup, that’s the point you just stay still and let it do whatever the fuck it wants that doesn’t involved you getting eaten.
REALLY FUN FACT for big cats cheetahs are fucking docile as shit
my grandfather ran a cheetah sanctuary in south africa and he’d just lie with them and sleep among them and they’d rub against him and chirp at him they’re big fucking babies
Another Fun Fact: Cheetahs are incredibly nervous animals. One of the (many) reason’s they’re going extinct is that cheetahs are so sensitive and nervous, some of them are literally too nervous to breed. Others will breed, but stress themselves out so much, they’ll lose their cubs.
So zoos with breeding programs had to figure out how to make cheetahs comfortable enough to first of all, get laid and secondly - not spazz themselves into miscarrying.
So what’d they do?
They gave the cheetah’s their very own Service Dogs!
The dogs make them feel safe, protected and secure!
AJHHHHFDDGHH SO PRECIOUS
this post just got so much better
THIS IS OFFICIALLY MY FAVOURITE POST
OK, now normally, while I’m a Star Wars geek, I don’t tend to reblog a ton of SW stuff. This, though… this just had me drooling over all the craftsmanship. Brilliantly done.
It cuts. Not like in the movies. It’s contained in glass instead of plasma or magnetic containment. Neat first generation prototype. Fragile and requires everyone to wear special glasses to avoid blindness.
You know if I’m reblogging Star Wars, it’s got to be something really fucking cool.
Wow yes sign me up for a lot of these
I’ll take 500 please.
…..A f…..a fucking real lightsaber…….
So, my lovely friend erin mentioned something about terezi cosplayers having to lick chalk for their cosplays and I thought that you know those little fun dip sticks look quite a bite like chalk
so I thought, you know with a little filing down and sitting them in food coloring for awhile they should turn whatever color chalk you like maybe, and taste better too, just a thought for you Terezi cosplayers :)
cUTEST GODDAMN KANAYA IVE EVER DRAWN
|How do you feel about feminists that make poorly veiled misandrist statements under the guise of feminism, which is as the dictionary defines is the advocacy of the belief that men and women should equal rights?|
Oookay so well today I remembered that certain sea creatures have blue blood instead of red, and after doing a little research on the subject, I realized that the entire troll hemospectrum could possibly be feasibly explained with different amounts of the different proteins hemoglobin, hemocyanin and hemerythrin! Sorry if it’s a little too sciency for one’s tastes but do let me know if I’ve gotten anything wrong!
(If it’s something like ‘individual organisms can’t produce more than one oxygen-binding protein at once’ well my friend please do remember that the subject matter is a species from a different universe that breeds in a similar manner to ants, bees and termites, and we can probably find a way to work around it anyhows)
I knew it was a chemical! I’ve been searching my textbooks for an answer, and now it makes more sense then ever.
I just realized that this would also explain why Karkat is hinted to be a limeblood (or would be if he wasn’t a mutant). He could’ve been anywhere on the spectrum, but between Sollux and Nepeta would make him lime. However, his mutation caused him to lose the hemocyanin he would’ve had, and thus made his blood bright red like a human’s or carapacian’s.
This also begs the question if there’s a mutation causing a complete lack of hemoglobin or hemerythrin in midbloods. It’s interesting to think about, at least.
