""A great piece of music is beautiful regardless of how it is performed. Any prelude or fugue of Bach can be played at any tempo, with or without rhythmic nuances, and it will still be great music. That’s how music should be written, so that no-one, no matter how philistine, can ruin it."

"
—  Dmitri Shostakovich (via maddiebkhandige)

I would disagree with the part on how nobody can ruin it

So my boyfriend did a thing.

hellochameleon:

My boyfriend of over 2 years sent me a game over skype. He said he wants to try and make Pokemon games since I play them so much. I opened it up and was super excited.

image

It seemed really well done and was super ready to start on my adventure!

image

He left a lot of cute notes and tips around town.

image

He remembered my favorite Kanto starter.<3

image

I was surprised it ran pretty well. I went on my journey and leveled up my Pokemon!

image

He showed me support and encouragement through a ton of NPC dialogue.

image

Then as im ending the game I come across this.

Wellll that really depends. But when say you have a solo or a main melody in the group or say a solo instrument in the first place and a performance is coming up. Well, good luck and practice hard. Fingers crossed (figuratively of course, you can’t do that literally and still play)

Herb Infused Balms For Healing + Headaches | Henry Happened

Everyone at sometime in their life is going to get a headache or a bump/bruise. If you prefer to avoid chemicals then these all natural balms should be right up your alley. Once you’ve infused your herbs, all you have to do is mix with a carrier oil and beeswax, then rub on the affected area. There are two recipes here - Peppermint & Lavender for headaches and Rose & Chamomile for calming.

Really useful if you’re like me and get a lot of headaches
