Pinned toot

Tids' rules learned from using Mastodon for a month. 

1. Always assume your sarcasm will be read at face value.
2. People never want to see anything, so CW like a motherfucker.
3. Where the terms "Dude" or "dudette" are concerned, "fam" is always the preferable, neutral adressor.
4. If you are a straight cis white man, apologise for it and then CW everything else you post.
5. It IS @citrustwee 's birthday and @lynnesbian IS a cute, benevolent deity.
6. No capitalism.

Intro. 

Will Smith.

Yes that's actually my name.

Cis as fuck.

Straight as fuck.

Vanilla as fuck.

Privileged as fuck.

Australian as fuck.

Am composer but am also still trying to find my way through the field and haven't developed my own voice yet.

In all seriousness, you may dislike me from reading this, but that's on you, pal.

When it comes to it, we are human and are permanently equal on that ground.

Best of days and wishes to you.

Will.

Coming back to Masto just to complain about an assignment that's due in two days that I'm too busy to do a good job of.

*breathe in*

*Breathe out*

Alright, let's do this!

Implying violence against children. 

Stepping on the train and having a six-year-old call you boring.

Time to throw down, lol.

Woah, what the fuck?!

Monster's Inc. is actually an intelligent screenplay about how capitalism uses fear to sustain itself!

Harry Potter film discourse 

People shit on Chamber of secrets so much, but the fact is, it's better than philosopher's stone in basically every way.

Sportsball, Sportsball shade-throwing. 

Can't wait to be working in the stadium when Brisbane totally SMASHES Hawthorne tonight.

When you're a classical kid and know that Oboes' name comes from the French "hautbois", and so whenever you see :hotbois: about, you get excited for some double reed action.

Train is packed like a sardine can, the train conductor is clearly bored, there's no 4G signal where I am and I'm probably going to be standing up for another half hour at least.

What the fuck's up with you, Mastodon?

My classmates once described a fellow classmate as "good value.

Apparently this is a common expression.

I was not aware of it.

So, from now on, whenever I am talk about our mutual classmate, I described them as "massive clearance sale at Greg's crazy carpet warehouse, with up to 50% on persian rugs, but hurry must end Sunday!"

Auspol, how not to handle the result, rant. 

I mean, honestly, I'm just as disappointed as he is, but there's obviously changes that can and probably need to be made.

And denying that fact is not going to make Labor magically win the next election.

Auspol, how not to handle the result, rant. 

In regards to the election my housemate is convinced, after having a leader that has served for two consecutive terms as leader of the opposition, and after having mutiple attack campaigns levelled against said leader in the lead up to this most recent election, that the labor party shouldn't change their leader because Bill Shorten's a good leader and change is almost never a good thing.

Yes, I share a house with this guy. No, he haven't spoken in 24 hours because of this.

Hey, fun fact, we can blame the Liberals for this one, as always, because it turns out that, in order to suck G.W. Bush's dick just a little more, the lame duck decided that it'd be a great idea to tack another 20 years onto our copyright term as part of a US-Australia free trade agreement.

So thanks, John Howard.

I like how, as a classical composer, I hate copyright and I hate that it makes me wish some of my favourite composers dies fifty years ago so that I could at least illegally access their sheet music through Canadian websites, where it would be public domain, yet I'd rather not part with it because it means that I might just make a living one day from the pieces I write.

It's a delicate balance we must strike here.

I think Madonna's performance at Eurovision 2019 will go down as one of the worst mid-act music performances of any major event ever.

If you've never listened to La Fille au Cheveux de lin this is a bad place to start, go listen to a good version by a good pianist, then read this toot. 

What's just as bad as no legato is too much Rubato.

I'm honestly convinced that this Rousseau character has never heard of legato in their entire life.

All of their videos have this problem.

If you've never listened to Clair de Lune this is a bad place to start, go listen to a good version by a good pianist, then read this toot. 

You know what I hate more than anything? Bad interpretations of DΓ©bussy.
