My Psychological Tower
I'm just a kitty with strong magic. And I'm the only cat who knows where it's at.

Band nerd- Euphonium, tuba, trombone. Ohio University Marching 110. Former Boy Scout. Brother of Kappa Kappa Psi.

I post about whatever I feel, anime, Pokemon, Legend of Zelda, politics, band, DCI, cats, etc etc

fuckyeahmarchingband:

the James Madison University Marching Royal Dukes (aka, Virginia’s Finest) at the 2008 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

London better watch out; we’re taking over their New Year’s Day Parade this winter!

(submitted by sashanako)

AAAAUUUUUUGGGGH! This band is like ours, but the uniform is better, the arrangement is better, *head explodes* EPIC

Thanksgiving

hm… Woke up to watch the parade. Marching bands as a whole this year decided to sound good and be in tune, but not play loud. Exceptions being my band and Shaw (they were kinda quiet this year, though). So I sat in the living room not being totally impressed. To be fair, it’s 10 AM on break, nobody’s enthusiastic then. And some bands have 5AM rehearsals, try living after that.

So from roughly noon till 4 I had nothing to do. Passed time the usual way, IM, icanhascheezburger, anime, that good stuff. Went over to my aunts just like every year, family conversations are something else. I was bored a lot cause the football game was on, halftime is so dull compared to what high schools and colleges have. That turkey, however, had my full attention. The vegan that my parents are forcing me to be was locked away and told to go fuck a landmine. There was some family controversy about the absence of chocolate pudding pie, it’s implied in the word “thanksgiving” that my dad makes it, we shouldn’t request it, we should just eat it.

Back at my place, some pool games were played between me, my dad, and my brother. The last game of cut throat was won by an epic shot by yours truly. Some conversation on why my sister is never around for thanksgiving was brought up, we touched my brother’s nerves at dinner by mentioning her. You gotta vent somehow.

Finally, I’m without company (that sounds sad for some reason), back to IMing by non-biological brother, looking around at what came up on Tumblr and facebook, then I got ambushed by my friend who just got back home from out-of-state.

Pretty good day, tomorrow I’m gettin my band family to hang out, so that’s even better.

I’ll jump on the bandwagon-

I’m thankful for… well, many things.

Band. It’s changed my life. Everybody that truly matters to me has came from there. I learned the discipline and dedication to get so many things accomplished. Fuck, if I survived day 1 of sousaphone and willingly went back on day 2, I can do anything.

I’m thankful for the people I’ve met through band. You guys have made such a difference in my life and sometimes you’re my reason to carry on. You brighten my days and show me that I’m truly appreciated in this world. I hope my friends know that I’ll be at their side until the end.

I’m thankful for my instruments. Zelda, Maka, Shion, Misaki. They allow me to channel the emotions I can’t put to words. In my darkest hours, in times of disappointment, in the hardship of practicing difficult passages, and also in the joy of playing for fun and performing, they’ve been there. I only own two of said instruments but I do hope to own more later in life. I want to be able to play and perform my whole life, and the horns I play now are the main catalysts for my passion.

I’m thankful for Gato. She greets me every time I come home, and when there are times where I feel alone, she’s there for me. She’s my wonderful cat and I care about her just as much as everything else I’ve listed.

Lastly, I’m thankful for the people I know on Tumblr. You guys are so nice and supportive and encouraging. I started this blog so I had a place to rant and post deep thoughts, and the fact that I’ve gained some amazing followers to comfort me when I’m down or share funny pictures with means a lot to me. Seriously you guys deserve cookies but there’s no realistic way for me to give you all cookies.

The Macy’s Great American Marching Band wants the Marching 110’s dance commanders to choreograph a routine for them.

When I heard the “They want-” part of the announcement I got excited cause I thought that meant the 110 was going for a third Macy’s parade but nope just us teaching another band some of our moves. Grr maybe some other year.

Still pretty flattering and awesome and I hope those kids enjoy it.
