the ego of a trumpet plus the self loathing of an oboe
Last Night in Ferguson (9.28-9.29): Last night’s protest was one of the in Ferguson this month, proving once again that the residents of Ferguson/STL County are some of the most resilient and inspiring in all the land. The police were literally holding peaceful protesters hostage late into the night (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining folks to leave, but the protesters didn’t back down. Eventually all arrestees were released, and many plan to be back out there tonight.
Injustice in Ferguson continues, but despite it, community now thrives too. This is still happening. Are you still paying attention? #staywoke #farfromover
So what you’re saying is the police aren’t arresting people…they’re taking hostages as a negotiation tool
is that what i’m hearing here
because that’s fucked up

White people who are into body mod constantly pull this shit. People staring at your piercings and tattoos is not the same as dealing with institutionalized oppression, you soggy waffles.
ok like i said i’ve got 3 1/2 octaves (Bb1 to F5 concert, F2 to C6 written) i still need to work on accuracy in my upper register and tuning in my….. every register tbh but like. it’s all there so i can start working on it! also at the end i put an excerpt that i recorded for an assignment. it’s from mozart’s 1st horn concerto & i only started it a week ago so like, accuracy needs work, but i’m pretty happy with how i sound
honestly i’m posting this because this is the first time that i can remember listening to myself and going “whoa, i actually sound alright” & i’m rly proud of myself with how far i’ve come with only a year of lessons honestly
Omg I have a 3 1/2 octave range now on horn I’m SO PUMPED
I took a recording (with realllly shitty audio quality & shitty tone cos it’s my 4th hour of playing today but whatever) & I’ll upload it when I can charge my computer
I know a few ppl have tagged me in question things and I will do that! I’m just busy busy busy right now but I’ll hopefully have time soon!
