favorite things about this
- literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
- the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
- all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
- that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
i work this job and live at home for the next 35 or 60 years ill probably be able to live on the first colony founded on the moon.

like are you serious though. we have phenomenons like this on our planet and don’t even think about how magical this is on an hourly basis. if anybody saw this before science figured out what it is they probably experienced the most majestic psychedelic sky gazing trip known to history. this makes me want to drive to canada for an alien big foot hunting quest right now. how special.
