    Weird. In all these years I don't think I've seen the word "trumpet" and "protocol" used together without "breaking" being included.......

    New band called "The Stinktastics" has formed, consisting of tardy, no-sheet music bringing, ****tards who sound like crap!*

    * Amazingly, since all the members sound like crap, the end result is decent music. It's just like Texas Hold Em...really crappy hole cards + crappy flop = great hand!

    As a couple of updates.. the band just turned 20 years old in December and the original band director retired music teacher is also a trumpet player. He started the band many years ago and unfortunately the corporate world has made the time available for playing and doing activities in a corporate band limited, so anything that we can do is great as very few companies have an opportunity like this or one with the amount of history / tradition that we do here.

    With that said, I printed off an extra copy of the music today and placed it in a separate stand and even sorted the music out in order of performance for our performance today. He literally showed up with about a minute or two to spare and was a bit confused, and oh you made a copy of the music????... thanks. Even on his own stand he tended to goof around with where the music was and he had his cell phone out part of the time during the performance too... good grief.. but it was a much more relaxing atmosphere of creating my 'own space' and then I didn't have to worry about the stand and music constantly moving or sitting closer to see the music... and he was thankful so it was all win - win.

    I listened to the Whisper key youtube video... I assume that is a really bad joke... that guy sounds horrible. And it says Trumpet tits in the background... that should be the first clue!

    You know this is Serendipitydoda, but I just say yesterday, a sailboat being transported on I-75 called "Breaking Wind". I was amused.

    FYI - and very probably TMI - Mel Brooks spoofed this character Le P├ętomane - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia in Blazing Saddles.
