The Boston Symphony was performing Beethoven’s Ninth. In the piece, there’s a long passage about 20 minutes during which the double basses have nothing to do. Rather than sit around the whole time looking stupid, some bassists decided to sneak offstage and go to the tavern next door for a quick one. After slamming several beers in quick succession (as double bassists are prone to do), one of them looked at his watch. “Hey! We need to get back!”
"No need to panic," said a fellow bassist.
"I thought we might need some extra time, so I tied the last few pages of the conductor’s score together with string. It’ll take him a few minutes to get it untangled."
A few moments later they staggered back to the concert hall and took their places in the orchestra. About this time, a member of the audience noticed the conductor seemed a bit edgy and said as much to her companion.
"Well, of course," said her companion. "Don’t you see?
It’s the bottom of the Ninth, the score is tied, and the bassists are loaded.”
heres a preview of something im arting:
i feel like disney world is fully capable of creating valve themed rides
portal 2 is already a rail game. you just need to put a car on that rail and build some sweet robots
roller-coasters have fake drops all the time. re-enact the scene where DOG throws you into a building and you fall 50 feet
throw out some laser weapons and give kids the clone-killing experience they always dreamed of
why would you hack someones computer for pics when you could hack the animatronics in disneyworld and make them sing the portal 1 and 2 soundtrack
can i rent out my life to an equally shitty person so we can use our unique strengths to fix each others fuckups
"Hit me my thesis is due in 12 hours and I haven’t started it"
"Hit me I have a final in an hour and I didn’t study"
"Hit me I’ve been on a 24 hour drinking binge and I’m invincible"
"Hit me. You’re a university vehicle and I’ll get free tuition."
"Hit me I feel like a failure anyway"
if i like something there is a 100% chance i will make fun of it, make comics that mock it, and create stories that turn it into a joke
if i hate something ill talk shit about it once or twice and ignore it
i have been a merciless and somehow beloved participant in many fandoms
