Not bad man, not bad! Just kinda got lost in a billion other things and my NSM time took the L for it big time unfortunately. I'm starting to try to get back into things here. Hopefully some arrangements will start pumping out soon! Hope you've been good as well!

Honestly it looks pretty good to me. Really only a couple things to consider:

Measures 13-20: I don't know what the general rule is with cross staffing stuff, but maybe there's a chance cross staffing some more of those chords could make them even more legible. Its up to you and the other updaters whether they should all be done or not, but I'm especially thinking it could be a good idea for 18-20.

Measures 22 and 24: Those respective dyads on C-Eb and D-F Ebb-F (oops Olimar posted while I was typing) start on beat one of their respective measures and follow the eighth-two sixteenth pattern the whole way. I think you could probably add those in. (May need to move them all to a separate layer to make it look nicer).

Measure 26: There's kind of a weird sounding second voice in the right hand that would add an extra 3 notes to this measure. I'm gonna leave that on you to decide how necessary it is and how to put it in legibly and such. You're usually solid with styling stuff, so I don't see that being a problem for ya.

Good sheet overall, hopefully it'll be finalized soon!


And Olimar posted stuff while I was typing. I was looking at pitches only and was too tired to try to catch any of the stuff he went for. Well, I shoulda caught the rhythm thing and the oddly placed rests at least. Gimme a break, I've been on quite the hiatus :D.

Well, they're wrong. Arranging has helped me sooo much in my Music Theory class. It's incredible.

Well if you could make a stop in Northeast Ohio real quick and convince them that would be great.  ;D

Well joke is on you because AP classes mean nothing and academia is a joke

Yep, that's about right..... :P

I have 4 AP classes and parents that believe arranging is a complete waste of time with no personal gains whatsoever.

Happy Birthday, TMP! Hope you have a great birthday. : )

Thanks man, really appreciate it!

Ooh, this is pretty neat.

I live in Ohio, near Cleveland.

Yes, another Northeast Ohioan!

O-H!

I-O! (Figured I would pick this up.)

Well, I'm flattered, but you probably want to prepare yourself to be disappointed. There will probably be a photo op tomorrow, as I'm heading out to Ohio with the college "nerd club" to a restaurant called Mike's Place. If I don't get one there, I'll take one when  I get back

So Maelstrom was literally like 25 minutes from my house yesterday. Interesting...

The list looks great, Braix! As for my personal claims (that I'm finally making), I'll take Title Screen, The Pokémon Center, and The Battle at the Summit for now. Man, it is really hard to limit myself to just three, but I know I can't handle an excessive amount of sheets at one time so...I guess these will do for now.

Anytime you have to create a preface of how your next thought isn't racist.....it's gonna be racist.

Not true at all. I've seen what networks like CNN have done to Trump's words long enough to know that non-racist comments can be twisted to sound racist. Misinterpretation is very possible, especially as we appear to be on different sides of the political spectrum.

Qualified HOW?  Because they had better GPA's?  Because they grew up in a situation where they have an overwhelming advantage over others?

Better GPAs and test scores, yes. I understand that there is a correlation between life situations and ability to put up those grades and scores, but explain this to me. I get these college letters all the time from fairly prestigious universities that promise full rides if you get somewhat decent grades and test scores but your parents make <$60,000 a year. (Mind you, these tuition costs can range from $20,000-$60,000 per year.) Meanwhile, I can have a 4.2 GPA, 35 ACT, and a 1560 SAT (out of 1600), but I am barely able to get any scholarship $$$ out of these schools (half tuition at most) because my parents "unfortunately" are moderately successful middle class citizens. I know I don't have to choose these schools, but something seems not exactly right with this situation.

  Now let me pull a few quotes from President-elect Donald Trump's personal history.

"“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bring crime. They’re rapists…"

“Our great African-American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore.”

“Jeb Bush has to like the Mexican Illegals because of his wife.”

I don't know about you, but this sounds like a bigot to me.

Uh, no, it doesn't. Like Noc said, if anything it is racism. Racism is intolerance towards different ethnic groups, while bigotry is intolerance towards people with differences of opinion. They are not the same thing. And aside from the last quote, I really don't view those as racist anyway. They are quite blunt, but they aren't really lies....

Where was Hillary in that video saying she wanted them to beat that guy? I can't seem to find her.

Trump never actually told anyone to commit a violent act towards someone. He did sarcastically say it once, but he never actually wanted people to become violent.

Encouraging direct protest violence, violent racism, constant falsified statements promoting xenophobia, sexism, etc.  It's an obvious trend both of personal character and the type of action and persona he legitimizes.  He has set back our society years by making it justified for someone to be a bigot and a bully.  The views he holds, or at least promotes, are those of the lowest and most disgusting tier of human existence.

There's a reason that college educated individuals trended strongly towards Clinton.

Oh, I believe there's a reason college educated individuals trended her way. I don't think we have the same reason, however. Since March of this year, I've been doing some college visits since I'm currently in my senior year of high school. I've been to schools in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York, and there is one common theme that they love to stress: diversity. (Preface: Regardless of how I word this, I will probably be labeled as a racist. I just want to say now that I do not believe that any one race is more or less qualified to be accepted into college; don't interpret me as saying that. In fact, I hold to heart the Christian teaching that there is only one race: the human race. The color of our skin or our accent does not make us better or worse than someone else. With that being said, back to the argument.) Almost every college I went to boasted that they had this percentage of African American students and another percentage of Asian students. Sometimes I wonder if they are so obsessed with keeping these percentages the same that they will admit lesser qualified students over more qualified ones just so they can add another country to their list. If I were to run a university that was going to accept 10,000 students, I would review the applications and select the 10,000 applicants that are the best qualified. However, to me I feel that colleges sort their applicants by demographic before quality. Ok, that was longer than I wanted; the point was supposed to be that colleges have become liberalized. I'm sure most college students on here can confirm that if they ever saw a political rally on campus, it was either for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. I have seen many a video on Youtube where campuses actually shut down Trump rallies, thereby infringing upon the First Amendment. If a rally was actually violent, that would be one thing. But peaceful rallies should not be shut down just because some students disagree with the candidate. Another example of the "liberalization" of colleges is the introduction of safe zones. God, these things drive me insane. What, are people not allowed to debate anymore? Is a difference of opinion illegal? How much do we need to shelter people? Isn't college supposed to help transition young adults from the school life into the real world? What will happen 5 years down the road if someone disagrees with them in a meeting? They won't even know how to respond to disagreement! (In case you were wondering, my dislike of safe zones is kind of extreme.) Again, violence and screaming is unnecessary, but people shouldn't be forced into silencing their opinion just because someone "might get their feelings hurt."


Oh, and another thing. Trump is supposedly the one that incites violence, right? What about this?


If you find a way to back up or play down this one, I'm truly sickened. You can't call pro-Trump violence bad and anti-Trump violence good.

Oh, and finally, I want to touch on the use of "bigotry." As I'm sure you all know, bigotry is intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself. Now let me pull a quote from President-elect Donald Trump's victory speech early Wednesday morning:

"Now it is time for America to bind the wounds of division, have to get together. To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people.
It is time. I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be President for all of Americans, and this is so important to me. For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, I'm reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country."

I don't know about you, but this doesn't sound like a bigot to me. You know what sounds like bigotry to me? People blocking highways and roads with protests because they are intolerant toward the eventual President and his supporters for having differences of opinion. Be careful throwing around terms like that.

^THIS!!!! There's a reason that so many people with a shred of higher education support Clinton.

Also @TMP domestic terrorism exists. It refers to an act of terrorism against one's own country. An example is the Pulse club in Orlando that was the site of a mass shooting in June--perpetrated by an American, but any acts of domestic violence intended to have a terroristic effect qualify.

I never said domestic terrorism doesn't exist. I had just never heard of it applied to the positions of the Trump campaign.



One final thought. Currently, Clinton leads Trump by 301,002 votes in the popular vote (for some reason they STILL aren't done). If you remove California from the picture, Trump is ahead by 2,219,717 votes. So he won by a landslide in 98% of the country's votes. So California, if you're really serious about this secession thing, go right on ahead. No one (especially the Republicans) is going to stop you. However, I did some research and found that even if Californians were in favor of leaving the USA, they wouldn't be able to be fully independent until 2019. Maybe by then, Mr. Trump will change your opinion. Deep down, everyone in the country should want him to do well. Wishing for him to fail is like hoping that the pilot of a plane you are on crashes because he gave you a dirty look when you boarded. So while I would never attempt to stop you from leaving, I wish you would open your minds a little bit and give this guy a chance. We've had a Republican in office before. (I know, I know, Trump is not a typical Republican. But still, my point holds.)

Half of our country directly endorses, supports, and sustains domestic terrorism.  I'd say we're in pretty shit shape.

Sexual assault and tax fraud are felonies tho so

.....Domestic terrorism? That's a new one. I seriously wonder where people get these interpretations of Trump's policies. Honestly I don't even know which part of his policy you are citing. I'm lost. Also, PDS covered most of my arguments on the two "illegal" things. I love it when people mention his supposed "tax fraud." Did he "cheat," to some extent? Yes. But he did not break the law. That's seriously how fucked up the tax code is. If you think it's crazy that someone is able to do that, don't worry. I do too. That's why I supported a guy that plans to rewrite the tax code to make it more simple and free of loopholes.

im shocked you think that

Relax, I thought they were both pretty funny!

That's just to shut up the haters to say "Clinton would have won if it wasn't for idiots voting third party"

To further that argument, even if all 200,000 voted for Clinton and she won Utah, Trump still has 272.

With being blue, he wouldn't be an Oompa Loompa so much as Violet Beauregarde.
He'd be Trumpy Smurf

Sorry I think E Gadd wins this one.

"Rules" this country. You might want to avoid phrasing it that way in the future. And no one is going to hold anything agaisnt Trump if he does a good job. We're just really scared that he won't.

Noted. And I definitely understand your fear. Even I have a shade of worry that he won't be able to do stuff as well as he wants. It's natural to fear the unpredictable.
