Judge a person by their questions...
These are some photos from the parade yesterday in Bunker Hill Massachusetts.
7th’s left side mellophone carry is a really literal take on “suitcase” instead of “pistol”.

Am I excited for anything?:
I am excited to start competing with SoCal Dream in 2 weeks.
What is something I disliked about today?:
it was fathers day and i miss my dad… and people at work pushed my buttons much more than normal.
really great nutty-herby notes that go well with grilled cheese and/or fruits.
For one grilled sandwich.
1 Tbsp european style butter
1tsp Fresh rosemary
1 tsp chopped pecans
in small bowl mix and fold room temp butter with nuts and herbs. and slather accordingly on sides of bread before browning a few minutes a side. good substitutes for pecan are hazelnut and walnut.
use on grilled cheese based sandwiches is encouraged, also use for grilled fruits like apple.

That my new job won’t pick up after drum corps season and i’ll be unemployed for too long, I’ve taken too much time away from real dedication to my music career and it’s now a pointless fight, & i’ll keep losing friends like i have the last year.
Do i have a crush:
Kind of, yes, i find one person fairly more attractive than i do other people, she barely knows who i am anyway so that doesn’t matter; but she recognised me randomly running into each other at in-n-out so i guess it’s something.
it’s just another one without mine.
I want to plan a meet up of the tumblr DCI fandom folk at one of the SoCal shows.
Whose down and what show?
It usually seems like more people are down to chill in the lot at the Pac Crest show in Mt. SAC.
I just signed up for college marching band and the biggest section is mellophones, with 35 people.
I’m going to suck at it so hard & everyone’s going to laugh at me. Also there’s the part where it’s not even a real instrument, and sort of just a weird cross between a trumpet and a horn sort of thing…( ；´Д｀)
Blech I don’t wanna
i know your feels. the mello kind of sounds like a duck, and it’s just kind of a cheap imitation of the horn sound.
Played correctly the mellophone is a heroic, soaring, middle voice in the bugle family. It is not an imitation of the F Horn sound, it is it’s own instrument from a completely different family of designs, in which there is already a dedicated french horn bugle. Playing the middle horn is what it is, we all have to occasionally double on alto(tenor) horn or Wagner Tuba and marching a mellophone is no different. You still get counter-melody, rips, suspensions, and 16th note runs on mellophone parts, and that is the highlight of being a mid horn in any capacity. So everyone needs to stop talking shit on the Mellophone, you sound like a trumpet with a bad ego.
i LOVE the 70’s flat top style cafés
i have nothing against the offset… well everything, or the bright red stripe; but why the fuchsia bibbers?
The uni would look awesome as it is, except still set over the cream instead of the hyper purple, imho.
Maybe i’m biased because SoCal Dream has always been Purple & Yellow/Gold, so i was enjoying having real-estate as the only purple corps.

That is a French Horn bugle, actually.
