“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”

Anyway, this is the James E. Taylor High School Jet Band. This past year's show was called Death and Transfiguration. There are three movements. While you watch the video, not how at one point, the colorguard "dies"(the grayish-brown flags), and soon after "transfigure" and become "butterflies" after being "caterpillars". Also, at the very end, streamers are pulled out from their sleeves(extremely uncomfortable), and they then march into the shape of a butterfly... you'd be able to see it better if the camera had been in the center of the stands.
Please also note that this is not for entertainment... marching bands preform at football games, yes, but it's really just practice, as there are marching competitions that go on for quite a while. I don't remember how far

Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.

In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.

While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.

Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.

Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

(Spoilers) Let's talk about Inside Out (Spoilers)I suppose I should get the obvious pun out of the way: this is a very emotional movie.(Spoilers) Let's talk about Inside Out (Spoilers) in Personal More Like This
Before I really start though, I think we should talk about some semantics. "Original" does not mean "good." Also "original" does not really mean "creative." Original things are usually creative, but creative things don't really need to be entirely original. Why did I bring this up? Because it's giving this movie some criticism it doesn't really deserve. We've had media go into someone's head and interact with their emotions (Psychonauts). We've had someone's inner workings be expanded to be a facility or a city (Osmosis Jones). So Inside Out isn't the most original thing in the world, but it still has a lot of creativity. Actually, it features a lot more mastery than it does creativity and we'll be talking about that quite a bit. It may not be "original" but it's my favorite Pixar movie, and quite possibly my favorite movie in general.
I really want to talk about the inner workings of this movie, so

He's definitely got a good case, although it would probably help if he brought up things like full movies that the content ID system doesn't take down, the ability of companies to claim monetization even after a strike was thoroughly debunked.

Recently over on The Oatmeal, artist Matthew Inman made a joke about guy gamers vs girl gamers. The joke was pretty simple: A guy gamer makes a mistake and gets bitched out by his fellow teammates online. Contrast to that, a girl gamer makes a mistake and her fellow teammates try to comfort her, tell her she's doing great, and make suggestive comments about hooking up. To me the joke was clear, guys treat girls differently online. However, that's not how the rest of the internet saw it...

Despite the fact that kickstarters are payed for by people who've made the decision they want to contribute their money to the project, Anita came under attack from gamers for "scamming" audiences when her fund far exceeded the target goal.

Wounds, bruises, and blood gush out the more you beat her up in this virtual game, and it's drawn some widespread attention.
Whether you agree with her viewpoint is not the issue, it's the fact that this retaliation is just "wrong" on so many levels. Do these people realize that what they're doing is shooting themselves in the foot? Making a video game where you beat up someone who's making
Internet BullyingFor many kids growing up in the 80's, if you were bullied in school you were able to "tough it out" because you knew your social interaction with said bully was isolated only to when you were in close proximity of them.

But in today's day and age of seemingly constant online connectivity, the "victims" of bullying have a harder time escaping.
