I heard this on the radio today. It was exactly what I needed to hear on the way to the first day of marching band camp.

You all need to stop whatever you’re doing right now to see the most intense yodeling you’ll ever hear.

I survived Trololol

I don’t think I will survive this

Another video to show in band class!

If I ever end up in the film industry I’m going to put this in a horror movie and it will affect people on such a deep psychological level that they’ll be terrified of getting on the computer for weeks without knowing why.

This is hauntingly, horrifyingly, horribly beautiful, and literally physically affected my ability to breathe. Holy. Fucking. Shit.

This would make great atmospheric ambiance for a horror game

I’ve been listening to survival horror soundtracks all day and really, there is little difference

is it bad that i find this oddly relaxing?

Another entry for my “weird things for my band students to listen to in class.”

Last year we listened to Pandereki’s Threnody for Horoshima. They had really good input afterwards.

I think this would have the same effect. And I could also give the “when I was your age” talk.

WOW that was cute!

My girlfriend just told me to drop everything to watch this and spent the next three minutes holding on to my arm and crying. It’s cute.

Totally showing this on the first day of class.

Is there a band version? I would laminate the heck out of it.

Text 7 Jun 1 note The Feels!!

Today is the 8th grade awards and farewell dance. It is also the first year I have taught these student for all three years of band.

They keep coming in and asking me to sign their yearbooks and come to the dance so they can show me their dresses (and “suits” for the guys).

I need more tissues. I will miss these kids so much. And they know it. Most of them have promised to visit.

Ugh. So many feels I was not prepared for today.

Text 23 May 10 notes The worst part of the concert

We just finished our 6th grade spring concert.

The worst part isn’t the exhaustion or knowing that we could have done a few things better (like me talking between the songs - I’m so awkward).

The worst part is waiting with kids for their parents to come pick them up. Parents that knew there was a concert because they dropped off their kids and asked me when the concert would be over.

Waiting with these students is heart breaking. We are their support system tonight, and they did a fine job on their concert. I wish their families could have seen their faces light up before their favorite songs.

This is the part of my job that sucks. I tell these kids every day how good they sound. And for some of them, I’m the only one that says it to them.
