I just read a post where a person innocently asked:
"I hope this isn’t a dumb question… but is it okay for me, as a cishet female, to refer to myself as ‘femme’?"
The answer was:
"First of all, the word ‘dumb’ is a HORRIBLE, ABLEIST SLUR!!!!! Don’t use that word again!!!!"
HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!! I love you, Tumblr!!!!!
I HAVE SAID THIS
EVERY TIME I GO TO CHEESECAKE FACTORY
“The Eye of Sauron now turns to the Cheesecake Factory, the last free kingdom of men…”
I haven’t seen this movie and I’m already 100% sure that it’s the most accurate video game adaptation in history
Man forgets he is married after surgery (x)

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:
[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
Everyone else go home
Oh man, so I play trombone, and we got this piece called Florentiner Marsch by Julius Fucik, and we saw this
which is 8 fortes. We were shocked until,
that is 24 fortes who the fuck does that
Who does that?
This guy. Take a good look - that is the moustache of a man with nothing to lose.
More like Julius Fuckit
Pyrozod's tags for this were too hilarious not to share
i love that marshmallow girls post. fat girls in japan get called marshmallows. fat girls here get called land whales and hamplanets. i wanna be a marshmallow.
How about dropping the insults, the cutesy names AND the weight? Then you can call yourself a healthy girl.
how about dropping a bag of dicks all the way down your throat, one by one. a whole bag. eat an entire bag of dicks.
I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come and see!”
(please open in new windows, tumblr resizes them to a really lousy quality!)
Oh Billy, you look so small right there…
Superman’s sheer anger over Billy Batson’s situation is a sight to behold. Batman and Robin get away with it because he knows it’s the world’s best internship and that Bruce is willing to put out all the stops to protect him. But Billy? He doesn’t have anyone looking out for him. And that pisses off Superman more than anything.
Seriously, Clark’s face here
He is ready to kick the ass of whoever put this boy in this situation SO HARD
Next page he really lets the Wizard Shazam have it.
Shit, son. I might have to buy this book for those last two panels alone.
When Superman is written well he is an amazing goddamned character.
these few pages are some of my favourite in comic book history. So good. For anyone wondering what the next few pages look like, here you go:
This is a bigger deal than some of you might think, because Superman is one of the heroes in the DC Universe who keeps his secret identity pretty damn secret, because as probably the most powerful and influential person on earth, a lot of people do not wish him well - and would jump at the chance to hold people dear to him as leverage.
Yet, he trusts this poor, scared little kid. To comfort him, and entrust him with his biggest secret - just as Billy did for him.
Superman is just really important, ok?
this for people to truly understand superman
Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
don’t read the youtube comments on this.You want to know why this person is encouraging you not to read the comments? Because some of the comments are the truth about how stupid this shit is. Its like “I’m offended you called me bossy so I’m going to be EVEN MORE BOSSY and promote the banning of the word “Bossy” to make myself feel better!” Because its not just men that call women bossy. Women call other women bossy if they don’t like them and guess what. Bossy is very much a personality trait to narcissists people. And I honestly doubt people lose their confidence from being called bossy. I would talk that person down and say “No, I’m taking initiative.” What this does is showing that women are incapable of taking insults and must rely on censorship to get what they want.
And there’s a word for a bossy man, it’s called an asshole. This campaign only coddles women to make sure no one says bossy instead of teaching women not to care what people think. If you fall apart after being called names, then you’re not strong enough to be a leader. This is a waste of time and money. There are girls from developing countries who legally aren’t considered human beings. Being called bossy is not the end of the world. And, bossy is not the same as being a leader. If a woman is called bossy, she’s only likely being rude and inconsiderate to other people. Unfortunately, first world society lumps being a cruel woman is being empowered woman.
why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.
reblogging here for that tag. always be wary of people who don’t respect your space. always.
