The Band Geek

Yep. Band camp was last week. I'm twenty shades tanner and seven pounds lighter.

This is a diagram I made a looong time ago as a joke for other band geeks, which I came across while cleaning out some boxes of papers. So I redrew it. I'm proud of it but not sure if non-band geeks will see the same humor. Oh well.


EDIT: Want more band geek goodness, see the Band Camp edition. [link]

My dad was a band director, so I was introduced to the band stereotypes at a very young age. Needless to say, it's all true.

About 95%. There is SOME exaggeration, but it’s largely all true.

LOL

for me as a artist

its

backpack pokets full of pencials 
AKA human pencialpine

1 pencial in each ear

a pencial sharpener (not like the little ones,the ones that have a lil crank) that is broken and had tape all over it becuase i cant afford another #brokelife 

wrists are black from pencial dust from wiping away eraser shavings

has backpack that is like thor's hammor
only i am strong enough
mostly cause its filled with a bigass binder full of blank paper and drawings

I never roll down my bibs I needed that one pocket to hold my everything.
I also wear my shoes all day on Friday's less extra stuff to carry.

Oh my god, I can relate to this so much.  I got so burnt that I got unusually tan this summer.  Since the drum major this year and I have such similar names, the band (instructors included) call me "Little J". I don't mind it, actually.

...My band nickname is 'mom', being the only female alto AND the section leader...

And we're not allowed to roll down our bibbers. (But God help me, this is becoming more and more accurate every day)

roll down your pants/overalls/whatever-you-want-to-call-them, and you lose your one good pocket!! and my band nickname is not awkward, just a little insulting...

As a clarinet I can truthfully say that wouldn't be enough to feed me. Let alone my whole section! Love it haha. Describes me perfectly.
