My school Orchestra (and Band) went to Las Vegas this year for the Heritage Festival and apparently, another school's jazz band played a medley of different scores, including LOTR and POTC! I was in the practice room with the rest of Chamber Strings, so I missed it, but I hear they were okay.

And this doesn't really have to do with LOTR, but I mentioned earlier that my teacher may have gotten the POTC score for us. Nope. It's a mishmash of Chicago songs instead, which is interesting, since a lot of it is in a Blues/Swing style with triplet eigths and all and we are all strings. The style gets a little muddled since we have counting issues, but hey, we were only sight-reading.

I have finally convinced my band directors to get some Howard Shore, but none of our bands are even playing it! That isn'y cool. But they also got PotC music, but Symphonic is playing that. I knew I should've tried out for that band. Grr... Oh well. PotC is going to be our marching band theam next season. I wans't able to convince my parents to let me join, but I went on a mission with some friends, stole the music and made a million copies of all 3 peices. Fun times.

I don't know if I've introduced myself yet or not, so I will now. I'm Krissie, 17, flute. Piccolo, piano, and trombone too. I'm a flute section leader and in the Oakland Youth Orchestra Philharmonia. I love LotR and music of any sort. I think I might be a music major and be a band director, but I might change my mind and be a different kinda teacher, I'm not quite sure yet. Anybody got any views for me to take into perspective?

BORING DAY

yello. how is everyone? eh, bored. oh well, lj takes care of that. hehe. anyway. omigoodness. today we got this really sad piece in band. our band director, mr.simpson, gave us this big speech on why he picked this specific piece. well he was all like, i picked this one because i thought that it was really cool and i really like this arrangement and that he really wanted to play it with us before he left. i was like, awwwww thats so sweet. and so we sight read it..... we played it almost perfectly. then he picked up the score and said, its been a pleasure. and it looked like he was gunna cry. so then i got all happy and started to cry. ugg. oh well. anyway, so how are yall doin with your instraments? lets see if i can remember all of ya. hmmmm.... well theres my horns...freelancer, uh thats the only one i remember there..... clarinets...katrina, christina, erin, kari(also trumpet) ha! good memory. i dont really remember anymore. oh well. plenty of time to do that. hehe. :) anyway. im out. ttfn!

Well! Since most of the discussion in this community has been around band, I think it's high time we talked about our other common obsession: Lord of the Rings.

Two questions to get this party started.

1. What is your favorite Tolkien book?

2. Who is your favorite character?

And here are my answers.

1. Book - The Silmarillion. I am SO in love with the Valar and Melkor and all the goings on when the world was new.

2. Character - At the moment, it's a tie between Tom Bombadil and Aulë. Tom is just... you can't not like him, and I'm convinced that Aulë is the sexiest Vala Aulë is intriguing. I even read an essay where it suggested that Tom Bombadil and Aulë (as well as their counterparts, Goldberry and Yavanna) are THE SAME PERSON! How crazy is that??

I'm done.
