CROWS - Visions of Never Times by TyrineCarver

Eden likes being up on the roof. From higher up, it makes remembering times that never came to pass less sad. At least according to her. No one else can see them. But Nate still comes up to lend her a supporting presence. Or possibly to stare at her rack, we’re never sure what Nathan’s motives really are.

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.

The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

Its called the Death Waltz, and was written as a joke but people have attempted it on piano.

Saxes move downstage.

I’ll just leave this here.

SWEET JESUS CLICK THAT

the added directions are great.
'insert peanuts'
'gradually become irritated'
'cresc., or not'
'untie slip knot'
'bow real fast, slippage may occur'

Also, here’s an actual live performance including the added directionsIt doesn’t start until 3:50, but the commentary at the beginning is really great too.

Hah, back in my musician days, we passed this around for laughs. Never thought I’d hear/see it actually attempted!

This again!

Fairie’s Aire or Death Waltz is the sheet music, composed by John Stump.

The Death Waltz Synthesia video is U.N. Owen was Her? from Embodiment of Scarlet Devil.

Stump made several satirical songs designed for sheet music lulz.

"Oboists are worth 14 points"

"Slowly increase drooling"

"AVOID LUMPING"

"Only felons may kill the oafish audience members"

"Hey look—rainbow slurs"

"INFLATE THE CIRCUS CLOWNS"

"USE THE CAT HANDLE"
