I know Lord of the Flies is supposed to be a very meaningful and symbolic book, but can we just talk about the fact that at the beginning of the book, Jack gives the fact that he can sing a C# as a legitimate reason for why he should be chief

MY CLASS NEVER GOT OVER THIS AND FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR WHENEVER SOMEONE DIDN’T WANT TO DO SOMETHING THEY SAID “but i can sing C# i shouldnt have to do it” AND IT STILL IS FUNNY TO ME

Also one time he was supposed to write a violin and piano duet, and he wrote the violin part, but he didn’t really feel like writing the piano part, or was too lazy etc. When the concert came up (he played the piano while a fiend played the violin) he set up a blank piece of paper (so people would think he was reading music) and improvised. After the concert he wrote it down so it could be published

okay i’ve reblogged this before but can we just give a shoutout to the orchestra that had to sightread the overture to an audience at the premiere of an opera

Naomi Elishuv had played for a number of orchestras, including Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, but was forced to stop performing professionally two decades ago when she began suffering from a condition called essential tremor. During the procedure which was performed under local anaesthetic, surgeons asked Elishuv to play so her brain was active. The footage shows Elishuv shaking and struggling to play the violin before she is wheeled into surgery. Surgeons are then seen operating on her brain behind a huge plastic curtain. As soon as the procedure is complete, the violinist’s hands become steady, and she is able to play unhindered for the first time in 20 years.
