My favorite genre is “starts out normal but then turns into really disturbing psychological horror”
One day in 1988, Tommy Wirklichaus of the lonely industrial town of Pahrump, TX got bored and decided, like so many other children his age, to dig a hole to china.
Unlike most others, he kept digging for another 20 years. With nothing but a plastic hand shovel toy, for two decades Tommy kept digging. In the early 90s several newspapers got wind of the large hole he’d made for himself and the story gained a brief following, though the novelty wore off soon enough and Tommy was left to dig alone once again. Giving up school and living on occasional valuable minerals from his hole and sales rights to his story (Which were bought by Cyndi Lauper), Tommy hit the one mile mark just before his 14th birthday and began confining the edges of the hole to a mere three meters wide.
Considering much of his time to have been wasted in developing the width of the hole, he began to move exponentially faster once he limited himself to depth and from then on, began to exceed one mile per year. But that was to be his downfall as well. In 2008, Tommy went missing. His depth gauge monitor topside had gone off the chart and many believe he was crushed by a cave in or fell into the Earth’s mantle.
But others have a different theory, claiming that the gauge he used would only cease to function if he had passed the center point of the Earth’s gravity. Furthermore, spottings of Tommy in Jieshou are becoming frequent. Considering he’s not been reported in any other city in China, many feel it unlikely that the reports are a sort of “bigfoot” phenomenon. Only one American tourist is among those to see “Tommy” in Jieshou and confront him, Bill Wymar claims that the man he believed was Tommy claimed to be named Josen Franks, oddly the name of Tommy’s first grade home room teacher. He denied that he was the boy who dug, but fit his description right down to the birthmark over his right ear.
Did Tommy make it? Is this a hole through the world? We may never know. But many of us prefer to dream, like Tommy did, wherever he is today. Per aspera ad china, Tommy.
TIME FOR ANOTHER GIVEAWAY!
Tightly following my decision to make someone happy with their own copy of Hyrule Historia, I’m now giving up a shiny, barely used The Legend of Zelda Limited Edition 3DS. This luscious handheld is unfortunately region locked, and having been purchased in Europe, you can guess which games will work. But anyone from any country is free to enter, so it’s up to you what you do with the thing.
(As of posting this, my other giveaway is still going on, so I’ll be multi-hosting until it ends.)
This can count as another thank you, a bigger one this time, to my followers and everyone who put up with me, for being really sweet and mushy and making me all teary-eyed with their kind words. But this isn’t just for my followers, but for the entire fandom as well. I might just be watching on the sidelines, but you guys are gr8888999999 and you deserve a treat. Sadly only one can win, but if you stick around, stay tuned for more giveaways!

This is a friend and I drumming on various things; my friend is playing a sink and a bicycle in the background, while I play a practice pad, table, and overhanging shelf.
I would have posted this from mp3, but technology confuses me.
“ill use the web”
“shit that didn’t work”
“but now that would cut me”
“fuck it im just opening it”
I would wager that that is to stop glass from flying everywhere. Dunno about the just opening the window.
So as a kid, the only real book “about” music in my house was Satan’s Music Exposed, I kid you not lol. Anyway, in the middle was a list of “Satanic” Classical Music.
Included was Ravel’s Bolero, which according to the book was a description of a ‘loose woman’ table dancing until she passed out…
The only real book about music I have is my fake book.
I don’t even want to attempt this, but I love listening to it.
Lydian is a natural major with a lowered 4th
Play F Major in all white keys
Song as an example
Dorian is a natural minor with a raised 2nd
Play D Minor in all white keys
Song as an example
Phrygian is a natural minor with a raised 6th
Play E Minor in all white keys
[missing song example]
Give me some more! I want to figure this stuff out, and I’m an audible learner. I need to hear an example!
D Dorian is a natural minor with a raised 6.
an example (although the chords go from dorian to natural minor, the melody stays in dorian)
E phrygian, which is actually a natural minor with a lowered 2nd.
F Lydian, which is a major with a raised 4th.
G Myxolydian, which is a major with a lowered 7th.
A Aeolian is just the natural minor.
B Locrian, which is a natural minor with a lowered 4th.
C Ionian is just the natural major.
all of these can be played by starting on their respective root, and playing the white keys on a piano.
Imagine how our lives would change if the importance of sports in our society was replaced with the performing arts.
“Omg did you see the ballet last night?”
“UM OF COURSE NOT, THE INTERNATIONAL TCHAIKOVSKY COMPETITION WAS ON, DID YOU FORGET?!”
“TELL ME YOU TIVO’D IT. FUCK.”
I WOULD BE SO MUCH HAPPIER WITH THE WORLD
This just made my chest ache with how much I wish it was reality
There should also be olympics for art and science.
