Sometimes, my friends like to stuff me into instrument lockers during rehearsal. I think that’s beautiful.

Bringing this back because I miss band.

Yo, are you my doppelgänger or something?? Pics pls.

No way this person is the spinning image of me in high school. Weirdest part is I started on bass.

Attention followers! I need your help!

My band director (aka my boss) has given me a job assignment due on the first day of school. I need to have a percussion ensemble arrangement written and ready to be rehearsed that day. His one demand? It needs to be an arrangement of something popular today. Whether it’s from a movie soundtrack or it’s something on the radio, it just needs to be popular. I write for middle schoolers, aka slaves to social trends. So if you have any suggestions please write them in the comments.

Keep in mind that whatever song I arrange has to sound good with the following instrumentation: marimba, xylophone, vibraphone, glockenspiel, timpani, drumset, and aux percussion. I can add more instruments later.

Thanks!

There is a difference

i am so sick and tired of ignorant people thinking that i’m Homo heidelbergensis or i’m Homo floresiensis. Like i’m nooooot! H. heidelbergensis has a shorter, wider body for colder climates! I’m long and lean! plus they make shelters out of wood and rock. i like to cave dwell! 

and H. floresiensis is also way different! they have smaller bodies and brains but large feet because they live on islands in indonesia! like no wonder they’re called “the Hobbit” lol! 

I’m just so sick of people getting us confused! omg so annoying

So I found this gem. It’s the blog of a teenage homo erectus.

This gif sums up how I feel when someone starts debating me on evolution.

Mysterious 500 Million-Year-Old Ocean Predators Could Be the Ancestors of Spiders
by Annalee Newitz
Anomalocarids are one of the oldest families of animals on Earth, and they looked like nightmarish sea scorpions. But a new fossil discovery actually contains traces of their brain structure — and amazingly, their half-billion-year-old brains look a lot like an arachnid’s.
Though some anomalocarids may have been as big as 7 feet long, these newly-discovered specimens are closer to the size of today’s arachnids. The critters you see fossilized below are about 8 cm long. Still, they look pretty insane — especially when you consider that their segmented heads are so similar to what we’d see in an arachnid today. A team of paleontologists led by Peiyun Cong found the three gorgeously-preserved anomalocarid fossils in Yunnan Province, and described them today in Nature…
