Not gonna lie, I'm not a favorite of the past few days.  In general...they kinda sucked.  There was the "sn scandal."  I'm still confused as to what exactly that was.  I'm not mad about it, as she accused-(though I'm a bit put off by a number of very rash and inappropriate accusations)...I'm just kinda curious as to what happened.  I don't get it...I've tried to, I'd like to...but....I don't.  So whatever.  I guess it's just someone new to put on my ALP list.  *shrug*  oh well.  not worth my time.  let's see, so, todays rehearsal...not gonna lie...it cast some serious doubt toward the success of this project.  It was arguably worse than the first one...perhaps because i was on baritone.  you never know.  after not having played it for almost 2.5 years...I'm not nearly what I used to be.  *shrug*    I need to re-work the clarinet parts...and I need to creatively find a way to dbl the bassoon that I'll actually like.  I've been toying with the clarinet doubling it in a few places...and from what I can make...it will work in a few parts...but in others it won't be the timbre i'm looking for...an alternate could be bass clarinet...still holds a reedy timbre...but maybe too low...baritone would be the right kind of timbre...but the wrong family...i don't want brassy in ww laden part...it doesn't fit...'course nothing does really...except bassoon.  Oboe might be the closest...but there's an ice-bergs chance in hell that we can pull that off...and people want transposed parts....or they bitch that I wrote it that way.  To most of them, suck it up-I don't care if it seems unecessary...it's how I want it, and it'll stay that way....to others...I'll do what I can I guess...I'm not rewriting or re-doing any of the trombone parts....except for maybe the alto in some places....I'm not changing the second tbone...or the fhorn...I might change the trumpet...but I'm not crazy about it.  The only one i'm strongly considering is the bassoon.  We'll see.  My top priority is getting the clarinets restructured, and bassoon part doubled well....this could take all weekend...I'm going to have to get creative with the bassoon part.  I already know how I'll deal with the clarinets, I've been experimenting with several different configurations, I think I've found one that seems the most "foolproof".   Re-beam between parts...it's perhaps a bit new...and odd...but I studied a few of Stravinskys scores with similiar passages, and his beaming & configuration between parts is rather ingenious at times...but he was also kind of a psycho.    So, I've decided I'll make two re-writings...one with the new beam approach, and the other with a more straightforward trading measures approach...coincide on the downbeat so as not to make it late on either player.  I'd like for the Stravinsky method to come out on top...it would say a lot...and make me very curious as to why...but I think a more tried and true approach will win over.  *sigh*  i'm tired...and by now i'm not even cranky anymore...i'm too tired to be cranky...now i'm just sorta depressed and exhausted-but at least I'm being rational again.  So...goodnight

I'd like to go ahead and send out a public apology to Miss Amy.  I had revoked all the non-mod memberships when I realized she posted quite frequently.  She's actually more of an LJ-er than I am.  I apologize for revoking your membership, thank you for "returning"

Seriously though people, let's get some postage going here, and extend to other Gordon people on campus...that'd be swell...

Alright, well.  It's been a very long time since anyone has posted, except for Thatch and his "national anthem."  *pause*             so anyways....I've decided that since me and Thatch are the only current members that post on an even semi-regular basis, and since I'm a mod and have the power to revoke...I might revoke all memberships in the entire community, and we'll start from scratch.  Perhaps the eviction notices will boost interest in a "what the hell??" kinda way.  Upon the call of my co-moderator mister Thatcher...or until I get bored, I'll be reviewing my policies and such, and we'll go from there.  

Be prepared, there's a change a comin'.....

» My National Anthem
So I thought I'd out the lyrics to my national anthem in here for fun, the lyrics are by Green Day :)

I want to be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
'Cause I want to be the minority

I pledge allegiance to the underworld
One nation under dog
There of which I stand alone
A face in the crowd
Unsung, against the mold
Without a doubt
Singled out
The only way I know

I want to be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
'Casue I want to be the minority

Stepped out of the line
Like a sheep runs from the herd
Marching out of time
To my own beat now
The only way I know

One light, one mind
Flashing in the dark
Blinded by the silence of a thousand broken hearts
"For crying out loud" she screamed unto me
A free for all
F*** 'em all
You are your own sight

I want to be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
'Cause I want to be the minority

And this is becuase I like it...

What It Means

Standing for what you believe in,
Regardless of the odds against you,
and the pressure that tears at your resistance,
...means courage

Keeping a smile on your face,
When inside you feel like dying,
For the sake of supporting others,
...means strength

Stopping at nothing,
And doing what's in your heart,
You know is right,
...means determination

Doing more than is expected,
To make another's life a little more bearable,
Without uttering a single complaint,
...means compassion

Helping a friend in need,
No matter the time or effort,
To the best of your ability,
...means loyalty

Giving more than you have,
And expecting nothing
But nothing in return,
...means selflessness

Holding your head high,
And being the best you know you can be
When life seems to fall apart at your feet,
Facing each difficulty with the confidence
That time will bring you better tomorrows,
And never giving up,
...means confidence.
» The Phantom of the Gordon phoneline....was in my room
so have any of you heard the phantom of the phoneline?
i'll tell you a little bit about him. he likes to leave meassages on my phone every once in awhile. but he won't say anything. he doesn't want to reveal his identity. he just leaves messages with classical music playing. and i'm not the only person who receives these messages. i talked to a few girls on my floor who have heard from the phantom as well.

ok, i know what you're thinking. there is probably some logical reason as to why i'm receiving these messages. and i'm sure that whatever is causing these messages isn't nearly as exciting as the phantom of the phoneline.

so here is my question for you. have you gotten messages before with classical music playing? does everyone get them?
go ahead, burst my bubble. i want to know whats up.
