The last one reminded me of Aladdin riding on a carpet to Jasmine. I thought she was going to stumble and Regina was going to catch her, to be honest.

Remember when Disney was all like ‘fuck how races work and homogeneous casts and couples’?

Black and white couple produce fillipino-american child. White dude is the valet. White step mother, one white step sister, one black step sister. Just a jumble, and it ought to happen again.

Some facts from imdb:

First multi-racial cast performing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.

Whitney Houston was producing Rodger and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” and was to star in it until she decided that Brandy Norwood would make a better Cinderella. Brandy would not do it unless her idol Whitney took the Fairy Godmother role.

Brandy Norwood became the first African-American to play Cinderella. This version broke viewer-ship records when it debuted, and it holds the record for the bestselling video for a made for TV movie.

So fuck any noise where people say audiences don’t want to see a mixed race couple, or more people of color. This was a success from television. I still remember Brandy singing Impossible. 

That ought to happen again. Mixed race live action cast where the relationships don’t made genetic or racial sense.

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:
[stifled giggling]
[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

Oh man, so I play trombone, and we got this piece called Florentiner Marsch by Julius Fucik, and we saw this

Anonymous asked: You know what's laughable you honestly thinking SQ is endgame, boy are you in for a rude awakening by the season finale. Let's just say Regina and Emma finally succumb to their feelings for both their guys. Enjoy and call it the "penis" parade all you want. :)

ashermajestywishes:

vidaoptimista:

Hello, tactful anon.  Pleased to make your acquaintance!  I’m not out to get into any ship wars of any kind.  I’m very much a “ship and let ship” kinda girl, so I contemplated whether or not to even respond to this.  Please keep in mind that anything I post is MY opinion (which I am entitled to, by the way) and just because it doesn’t match with your opinion doesn’t make it any less valid. 

Okay, now that that’s out of the way.  What makes you so sure that SQ *isn’t* endgame?  A&E once said that when they originally conceived of this show, the rough idea of it contained an Evil Queen, her curse, and the Savior who was the only one who could break it.  There was no mention of Hook or Robin Hood.  These characters were literally thrown into the show in Seasons 2 and 3 respectively, coincidentally as the Swan Queen fandom’s influence began to grow exponentially.  There are any number of reasons these male LI’s were introduced, which I will save you from hearing about because there are literally dozens and dozens of metas which already expound upon this at length, but I would ask you if the rapid push to make CS and OQ canon seems a bit like a distraction from the original jumping point of the series, which has always been about Regina, Emma, and their relationship to Henry and one another.  It certainly seems that way to me.

We have already seen numerous theories that RH is working with Zelena to get Regina’s heart for any number of reasons (to get his wife back, to protect Roland, etc.) and they are supported by actual events that have transpired on the show.  Jane Espenson has reiterated that Regina giving her heart to RH as prematurely as she did was out of character.  I’m sorry, but the way this forced “romance” is being thrust at the audience does not have me convinced that it will be anything less than a plot device to advance Zelena’s new curse.  It breaks my heart in the sense that Regina is being put through senseless torture AGAIN, but at the same time it is nice to see that she is finally letting her walls down to someone, because I think that will eventually allow for her bond with Emma to grow stronger and potentially one day allow her to love her in a romantic sense.

As for Hook, Emma’s mannerisms when he is around do not appear to me to be one of a woman who is interested in his advances.  I do think the writers are trying their damndest to make him into a more likeable character by showing the good that he is capable of, but Emma (and we, the viewers) have already seen that Hook’s self-centered ways are still very much alive and well: “If it can be broken, that means it still works”, anybody?  He’s delighted that Neal is out of the picture and has no qualms about letting Emma know he doesn’t care that she’s heart-broken.  Why would this appeal to Emma, who we have all seen evolve from a character who once only acted in self-preservation, but now acts to protect her son and her family first?  She is someone who has grown roots in Storybrooke because of Henry, and Hook?  Hook has all but been reduced to a root-less, whining, puppy-dog pirate. 

And then we come back to Swan Queen, the two women who A&E recently said were so alike in their tendency to build up walls against love?  The two women whose plot lines are mirroring one another’s even more with each and every passing episode?  As I said before, while I’m perfectly aware that CS and OQ are playing out before us right now, I do not believe either of these ships will be endgame for all the reasons I stated above.  And when the relationships end and both women are as confused and hurt as before, who do you think they will turn to?  They are flip sides of the same coin.  They both have had their lives’ destinies pre-determined by forces greater than themselves, which has left them without the option of choice in virtually every aspect of their lives, love interests included.  I believe that the real “true love” of both women is Henry, and that he will bring them closer as he always has in the past.  In choosing Henry, they are choosing each other.  Whether that means closer in the romantic sense, or closer in a platonic co-parenting sense, I don’t know yet.  But TPTB would be missing out on a fantastic opportunity to tell the most revolutionary fairytale re-telling of all time if they chose not to make the Savior be the one to tear down those walls Regina so carefully built up; the Savior, born of the very woman who unwittingly took away Regina’s true love, seems destined to be the one to give that love back to her.  We have seen Emma and Regina make magic together that literally transcended realms, and we know that Rumple said that true love is the ONLY love capable of accomplishing that feat.

So now I beg of you, dear anon - when’s the last time CS or OQ transcended realms, moved the heavens, or saved an entire city with their “love”, hmm?  Please do tell!  In the meantime, enjoy your penis parade…it ain’t gonna last long.  ;)

OMFG!!!!

Anonymous asked: Putting aside all the plot distractions right now, we all know how semi finales and season finales end - with Regina and Emma and their magic and a big emotional moment. So I'm thinking about this last semi finale and Regina giving Emma and Henry a Happy Ending and THEIR FACES and I'm seriously wondering how they are going to top that here. Cause that blows my mind. With sleeping curses in the mix and magic practice and Zelena out to hurt Regina, the sky is the limit on the magical gaymoes! -BLA

n3v3r-mnd:

sqfangirl:

I think a lot of people forget that every single finale has ended with the SQ family being all magical (and p.s. “TL is magic”):

  • S1 finale: Emma told Henry that she loved him then used TL’s kiss to wake him from the sleeping curse while Regina looked on. When he woke up, Regina looked at Emma and exclaimed, “You did it!” Then she went to Henry & told him that she loves him.  image Oh yeah, this was also that episode that we got Emma reflected on Regina’s left chest.  image
  • S2 finale: Henry hugs Regina & tells her that he loves her. image Emma moves away from her parents over to Regina and tells her: “You may not be strong enough, but maybe we are.” They proceed to combine magic to destroy the ‘unstoppable’ trigger. image
  • S3A finale: Henry’s two mommies are successful in saving their son from Neverland, but now everyone except Emma & Henry have to go back to FTL to escape Pan’s curse. The SQ family share an emotional moment, Regina promises to give Emma her happy ending (!!!), and then she uses magic to save everyone as best as she can.  image image

Is it no wonder many of us in Swen are awaiting the 3B finale? We are patiently waiting to see our SQ family sharing emotional moments and using magic once again.  Like you said BLA, “the sky is the limit!”

The perfect post. This is why we ship SQ.



Are we really so different that we must be horrified of one of them uncovered, and completely okay with the other?

this is now my most favorited post ever
