    There’s just something about playing music that keeps me happy. When you play a song that people recognize and they smile and start singing along with the tune. It’s incredible.

     
  2. I remember when I when I was younger my uncle and I were talking about music and he asked if I listened to Tool and I was like

    Mister Nice Guy, by Invisible Inc. - literally a song about Nice Guy (TM) Syndrome

    “Nice Guys finish last cause they’re not trying to win,

    they’re just trying to win your pity.

    You might think he’s your friend with that puppy dog mug,

    but he just wants some puppy love, really.”

theweekmagazine:

A new study asked an old question: Do orchestra conductors actually serve a purpose, or are they pure spectacle? 
To answer that question, the University of Maryland analyzed whether the conductor leads the orchestra or the orchestra leads the conductor. In this experiment, researcher Yiannis Aloimonos and his colleagues installed tiny infrared lights at the tip of a conductor’s baton as well as on the bows of violinists. While the orchestra played, infrared cameras captured every movement, which were then analyzed using mathematical techniques pioneered by Nobel-Prize winning economist Clive Granger. The scientists in this study theorized that if the movements of the conductor predicted the movements of the violinists, then the guy holding the baton was clearly in charge. 
So what happened? It turns out the purists were right all along — the movements of the violinists were indeed predicated on the movements of the conductor. 
Keep reading…

Man, I hate this question.  Look at it this way: HOW THE FUCK ELSE ARE YOU GOING TO KEEP 50, 100 PEOPLE PLAYING INSTRUMENTS FROM STEPPING ALL OVER EACH OTHER.
ANSWER: IT’S THE CONDUCTOR, STUPID.

When I started my musical career I was a maid, I used to clean houses. My parents—my mother was a proud janitor, my step-father who raised me like his very own worked at the post office and my father was a trash man. They all wore uniforms. And that’s why I stand here today in my black and white and I wear my uniform to honor them. This is a reminder that I have work to do, I have people to uplift, I have people to inspire. And today I wear my uniform proudly as a Covergirl. I want to be clear young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Covergirl, I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned through my journey that perfection is the often the enemy of greatness. Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes other uncomfortable.

    I Am Free - Willow Smith

    Respecting the shit out of this eleven year old tbh

    She is the sweetest, cutest little girl. Not to mention she can SING, you can see that especially in the bridge. I love this. I wish every little girl felt this way, no, I wish every human being felt this way.

    Your validation is just not that important to me. 

    This whole song. Beautiful.
