You get home from a long day at work and turn on the TV. It’s been a long week, so you think to yourself- maybe i’ll take the family to a movie on Saturday. Maybe we’ll even go on a vacation soon! We could visit museums and go to plays and see all sorts of fun attractions.
When you turned the TV on, nothing happened. There are no actors to entertain you.
When you went to the movie theater, nothing was showing. There were no advertisements to tell you that anything was showing, so you went to the theater to find out. Nothing playing. There is no one to film and create movies for you. Well at least your vacation will be fun, right? Not like there will be any plays to see and there won’t be anything in the art museums.
Well at least you have the shack you are living in that you made out of cardboard and sheets.
Not like you could find an architect to build you a house with all the money you’re making as an engineer.
Out of all the Nonon Jakuzure cosplays I saw at Fanime, this one is undoubtedly my favorite of them all. Mainly because of the legit marching band gear.
OMG I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kill la Kill OMG
Whoops I accidently read “band director” as “band dictator”. Eh, same thing.
Uh, not necessarily, Brahms…
oh hey look what just came up on my news feed.
NO HOLD UP YOU NEED TO STOP RIGHT THERE.
Usually I’ll post stuff like this down in the tags, but this is extremely important.
People who major in music do it because they love what they do. They know it is not all that well paying, and it can lead to a rough life. The decision they make is to carry on doing something they love, something that will (hopefully) bring them happiness. It is many hours of practicing, dedication, and anxiety over auditions, shows, etc.
Music majors don’t get paid all that much, especially if they’re are strictly performing. They have to dedicate themselves to some other job in order to pay bills, because depending on the area you live in or how many orchestras/ bands you perform in you might not be making all that much. However, people still chose to pursue something they love in order to achieve happiness.
Additionally, let’s pretend that music major’s didn’t exist for a second. Films would have practically no soundtrack. The people who work on movies coordinating the music are music majors. You want to go to a musical? Guess what there is no music. MUSIC MAJORS ARE NOT JUST PLAYING INSTRUMENTS!!! Get your head out of your ass and stop bashing other people’s passions and major.
