Musical Madness, Magnificence and Manbeards

For those interested, the new writing tips video on mythology making is now finished. It’s been up since about a week ago. *cue annoying Vine music*

But for those interested in the next one, or music of any sort (and since you clicked this link you seem to be), I will be putting some musical awesomeness into the next video blog, coming Tuesday, or by the time this blog is finished writing, today. This awesomeness is due to the ocarina that I finally get after a year and a half of not having one. What is the ocarina, you might ask? It’s the best instrument ever! And I will explain why, as of right now.

There is more to the ocarina than its short rise to popularity due to Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. In fact, long before it made its way into geek culture, it was a four-holed Aztec wind instrument. It’s basically shaped like a potato with a stem to breath into, with a variety of holes depending on the style.

This is no ordinary potato. This is, advanced potato.

Plus, it sounds totally awesome, as shown by the video in the link. And I used to be pretty good with it, at least according to everyone that listened to it. So I’ll take their word for it.

Yessir, there isn’t much things that are more hipster than traveling with a tiny aztec instrument in skinny jeans and a sweater. In case you’re wondering, I used to do that often. And now I have a beard to add to the hipsterness. Now if I could only find a beanie, I could be SuperHipsterMan. I write this all on a Macbook Air. I have severe problems, people.

That is it for this round of randomness. Let me know what YOUR favorite instruments are, or if you play an instrument! Adios, Au revoir, and God bless!
