Reaching into my case pouch for a pencil, I pull out:

  • One (1) screwdriver
  • Three (3) types of mutes
  • Rosin
  • One (1) metronome
  • Two (2) rubber bands

  • Two (2) business cards
  • A full set of gaming dice
  • Two (2) shoulder sponges
  • One (1) pencil (broken)

I feel this…

Having been motivated to check my own,

  • One (1) crumpled audition paper
  • Two (2) sets of spare strings, one of which is old but functional and the other new (this despite my current strings being technically too old)
  • Two (2) crappy mechanical pencils
  • A good mechanical pencil that I use
  • Five (5) paperclips (of various size)
  • An entire Ziploc bag of various band-aids
  • Four (4) standard no. 2 pencils
  • A Nature Valley bar, unopened
  • Some kind of…rice cracker? that the conductor gave me when auditions ran long a couple years ago and I didn’t have time to eat it.
  • Three (3) mostly empty packs of kleenex
  • Three (3) cinnamon sticks
  • My usual rosin
  • My fancy magic rosin
  • A clickable eraser

classical-crap:

I got some beef. the principal cellist in my high school orchestra has perfect pitch and when I gave the A I think he told his section not to to tune to it even though my A was perfectly fine (I tuned it with a tuner. even if it went a hair flat it was a damn valid A). also, I’m the concertmaster, so even if I played a straight up G he should bend to my well. 

I might be paranoid, but he’s done some snooty perfect pitch stuff in the past and I will fight him if he does it in the future. we play string instruments. his equal tempered ears have no power here

as another person with perfect pitch i will help you fight him; he shall realise the rest of us are not behind him

Just play in baroque tuning and kill him

as an early music enthusiast i also approve this message
