I just thought I'd mention that the website is back up. It doesn't really have much on it right now (since I haven't talked to Ms. Hsu yet) but at the very least it has info about upcoming stuff.

Haha the band community... [25 Sep 2005|05:58pm]

So yeah I decided to update this thing about out competition this past saturday.

We scored a 38.
But if the tuba section was the only section scored then we would have scored much higher. All four of us have all the music memorized. And some of you may be able to say that for yourselves but most likely not for your section.

This season may not be out best score wise but it's not a lost cause. If your a section leader you need to stop complaining about our score and do something about it with your section. I'm not going to say you should call a sectional because my section hasn't this year but we were also the ones who ran to our spots and stood at attention back at camp and at a portion of the the rehersals thus far.

so i went to the mall with my mom
and a little chit chat we had during lunch let to talking about the band parents

i told her that were all sick of the band parents taking control of the band - its OUR band - not theirs
and i know you all agree with me

well she got mad
because "without the band parents this band will be nothing"
i told her how they add onto the drama that we ALREADY have with their little gossip and shit
they hear something...then they tell all the other band parents...then if they dont like it they try and change it...and if they dont get their way they bitch like no other
so what does she do?
"i'm going to tell all the band parents what you said"
mhm exactly my point

so guess what guys
i guess now its my fault that the bands going to suck even more than it does?
because my moms leaving the band parents and is trying to take others with her
what will we ever do without our amazing band parents?!
ya right.

in my moms own words -
"mr c doesnt know what hes doing, and without the band parents we'd be a mess. we won't go to competitions. our band will have the 'wrong' people in it. we're selfish spoiled little brats because we dont appreciate the help we're getting from them. they make the band better by running it."
ahaha. right.

so say buh bye to the band parents i guess
or at least a few of them
and when the band "sucks" because of it
just come smack me.
and that wont be for awhile.
