Okay, I can do a basic rock beat, plus fancy extra bass drum beats and crash symbols. Not, you know, super consistently on tempo, but still a win! \o/

Guess who just rented a portable electronic drum set. :D

is it your own skin though? As in you grew it, on your own body, from birth?

This skin was grown yes. On a human body. That is mine. I’m not a robot

Ok ok I’ll believe you… If you first tell me what this says:

I don’t need to prove myself to you how dare you, I love breathing oxygen

I just checked my recent iTunes sales, and I’m intrigued that sometimes people buy multiple copies of Stop Being So Fucking Awesome Darren Criss. Like, 5 copies at once. I assume that means people are giving copies away as gifts, and that’s fantastic and I just want to say I really really appreciate it! :D

OH.MY.GOSH.

Downloading this right now. I am so excited.

Mod here. I hope this is helpful for some of you—I’m really psyched to see assistive technology being made specifically for dyscalculics!

this is awesome!

is this availible for android?

So cool! My friend has dyscalcuila, I’m sending her a link!

The Android version is here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.shapehq.dyscalculator&hl=en

I just downloaded this app, and the other thing it’s good for is if you have trouble converting equations in order to put all the known numbers on one side of the equals sign. It has functions like “28 ÷ what = 4”. Very helpful!

I'm confused about what Beethoven was doing in the black composers post. He was German.

By golly gee! I keep forgetting that Black people didn’t exist until the Fresh Prince of Bel Air came on television! Or that Black people existed in anywhere else than Africa even with slavery going on :) My apologies.

Anyway, here’s proof that Beethoven was Black:

"… Said directly, Beethoven was a black man. Specifically, his mother was a Moor, that group of Muslim Northern Africans who conquered parts of Europe—making Spain their capital—for some 800 years.

In order to make such a substantial statement, presentation of verifiable evidence is compulsory. Let’s start with what some of Beethoven’s contemporaries and biographers say about his brown complexion:

(Louis Letronne, Beethoven, 1814, pencil drawing.)

"Frederick Hertz, German anthropologist, used these terms to describe him: ‘Negroid traits, dark skin, flat, thick nose.’

Emil Ludwig, in his book ‘Beethoven,’ says: ‘His face reveals no trace of the German. He was so dark that people dubbed him Spagnol [dark-skinned].’

Fanny Giannatasio del Rio, in her book ‘An Unrequited Love: An Episode in the Life of Beethoven,’ wrote ‘His somewhat flat broad nose and rather wide mouth, his small piercing eyes and swarthy [dark] complexion, pockmarked into the bargain, gave him a strong resemblance to a mulatto.’

Beethoven’s death mask: profile and full face

C. Czerny stated, ‘His beard—he had not shaved for several days—made the lower part of his already brown face still darker.’

Following are one word descriptions of Beethoven from various writers: Grillparzer, ‘dark’; Bettina von Armin, ‘brown’; Schindler, ‘red and brown’; Rellstab, ‘brownish’; Gelinek, ‘short, dark.’

In Alexander Thayer’s Life of Beethoven, vol.1, p. 134,  the author states, “there is none of that obscurity which exalts one to write history as he would have it and not as it really was. The facts are too patent.” On this same page, he states that the German composer Franz Josef Haydn was referred to as a “Moor” by Prince Esterhazy, and Beethoven had “even more of the Moor in his looks.’ On p. 72, a Beethoven contemporary, Gottfried Fischer, describes him as round-nosed and of dark complexion. Also, he was called ‘der Spagnol’ (the Spaniard).

Other “patent” sources, of which there are many, include, but are not limited to, Beethoven by Maynard Solomon, p.78. He is described as having “thick, bristly coal-black hair” (in today’s parlance, we proudly call it ‘kinky’) and a ‘ruddy-complexioned face.’ In   Beethoven:  His Life and Times by Artes Orga, p.72, Beethoven’s pupil, Carl Czerny of the ‘School of Velocity’ fame, recalls that Beethoven’s ‘coal-black hair, cut a la Titus, stood up around his head [sounds almost like an Afro].  His black beard…darkened the lower part of his dark-complexioned face.’

Engraving by Blasius Hofel, Beethoven, 1814, color facsimile of engraving after a pencil drawing by Louis Letronne. This engraving was regarded in Beethoven’s circle as particularly lifelike. Beethoven himself thought highly of it, and gave several copies to his friends.

They whitewashed BEETHOVEN?  O_O

Thank you, history/fact-checking Tumblr.

I now feel the need to go burn every white-skinned image of Beethoven I can find.

I wrote this article for gays.com earlier this year and it’s been published now! It’s basically an introduction to non-binary gender identities and what that means. Please check it out and tell me what you think! :)

They’ve asked for a few more articles, so, I don’t know when exactly, but there will be more in the future! :)

Do you feel it?
