Take one crafty pastry chef, a Whovian, add two cats, never enough time, a hearty dose of geekery, a splash of fan-girl, shake well, pour into a salt rimmed glass, and garnish with a dark blue scarf. Side effects include cursing, and then telling people that you're a Doctor, and not other things.
This is my personal blog, and by that its got a bit of everything. It's NSFW, and occasionally political. There's everything from Benedict Cumberbatch, to actual science, to cats, and back again.
I have a love of sci-fi/ fantasy, tea, The British Isles, Converse, the color purple, cold weather, rain, strawberry shakes and black cats.
I know ASL, French, and am fluent in English, sarcasm, and social awkwardness. I believe in always finishing 'Stairway to Heaven' when it plays in the car, and my favorite Beatles album is Abbey Road.
If there's something else you want to know, all you have to do is ask.
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 can’t not laugh at this
So basically the point here is that you can literally be a professional in one area and then try something that most people would say is pretty much the same thing and sound like a five-year old. Really talented people suck at things all the time the important thing is to never give up.
^^^^^^ That. Right there. That’s it.
I know I JUST reblogged this, but that comment is something I think needs to be shared. :3
