“Free speech as a legal concept only guarantees you the right to speak. It doesn’t guarantee you the right to be heard, it doesn’t guarantee you the right to be agreed with, it certainly doesn’t guarantee you the right for your speech to not be challenged by someone else’s speech, and most importantly of all, it doesn’t mean you can’t suffer consequences if and when your free speech is used to cause harm to someone. Which is exactly what sexual harassment, racial slurs, and verbal bigotry are. That’s not censorship. That’s fairness.”—
thatcrazybandkid replied to your post: Ok, so the Bowl Championship Series Invitational…
Yeah, I’m in the same boat as you :( I find it kind of odd that BCS would invite the USAAAMB nominees when it’s practically impossible for anyone to do both. :( Are you planning on auditioning for BCS?
I haven’t decided yet. I just got their invitation half an hour or so ago.
I’ll see if I can do it. The $300ish cost might be a deterrent, but it might not be too big of a deal. I’ll poke around a bit and decide if I like this BCS band.
The BCS National Championship All Star Invitational Marching Band sent me this huge envelope.
Somehow, I was selected to audition for them. It’s similar to the US Army All American Marching Band, it’s a national honors marching band that’s set to perform pregame and halftime at the BCS National Championship in Florida in January. This flyer says it’s the biggest event in college football.
If I don’t make USAAAMB, this would be worth going to. Hell, why not do both if that’s physically possible?
Time to look into what this band is and what it does, and -when- it does it. I can’t be missing school for half of January.
My poor mom, being musically illiterate, thought this had to do with the Buckeye All Star Band that I’m trying to join. That’s in August, performing at a Drum Corps show, not in Florida for college football.
Afadggfmjkjhylcdghmdeph why are all these places mailing me wanting to join their bands? First Sounds of America wants me to go to Europe, now this? Am I -really- that good?
t’s kinda sad that not even without internet, I still have my Tumblr addiction…
[I started typing this at around 12:30 am, 5/31/2012. I intend to copy/paste it to Tumblr at nearest opportunity]
So Freska and I finally got to see the Avengers. We planned for Dudley and the midget to show up, but the midget is dead broke and Duds honestly couldn’t contact me if he wanted too, with his phone broke and my internet broke..
I get to the theater and it’s damn empty. Freska’s troll self is already seated. <.<
Movie was awesome. Cool black guy, and every Avenger is a smartass. This is my kind of superhero team. Loki is just a whiny asshole. Bitch had it coming to him.
Did I mention the cool black guy? It’s an unfortunate truth to me that, no matter how cool I’ll ever become, I’ll never be old black guy cool.
“I’m aware the council made a decision, but seeing as it’s a stupidass decision, I’m choosing to ignore it.” I wish I could say that.
Now, the theater needs to fix their goddamn air conditioning. Every time it kicked on it sounded like the ceiling was gonna fall and Fresk nearly lost it.
Can I take a second to point out the Hulk? Killin that bigass fish by punching it IN THE FACE. Fuck you, fuck Loki, fuck your aliens, and fuck your alien fish ship thing. Then Loki was “I’m a god. I won’t be bullied by-” *HULK MOTHERFUCKING SMASH* I think I like his style. That’s the kinda shit I would do. You piss me off, I’ll beat you into the floor, Loki almost BECAME part of the floor. That’s my definition of Loki’d. Get your ass beat so bad that you end up part of the building.
I need to make a Black Widow appreciation post. I can’t because my internet is down, but she is just epic. Fixing Hawkeye by hitting him damn hard. That’s how you do it.
I can say… I sorta relate to most of the Avengers. As I said, the smartassness. That’s all me. Captain America’s seriousness and dedication, Hawkeye sorta losing his way and needing of a rude awakening. I know those feels.
And did I mention Loki’s a bitch and he got what he deserved? Because he did. With his creeper smile.
Why the fuck did I drive? It’s midnight and I’m going through the most dangerous intersection in the city. I’m terrified of it and I’d do anything to avoid it.
-drives through like a boss-
If I can drive though that, I can do anything. Fuck your intersection.
O.O I forgot to mention- Two of my cousins were extras in the film. Didn’t actually see them, I’m sorry, Matt and Dan. Maybe next time there’s a movie in Cleveland.
I wish I was actually on Tumblr, cause I’m going to bed with a slight feeling of unfulfilledness. I should be spending Friday worrying about the SAT tomorrow.
