it’s a metaphor

The best part is that the crab is the symbol for the zodiac sign Cancer, so in a way even the crab itself is a metaphor

THIS IS NO LONGER A FUCKING JOKE. THIS IS DEAD SERIOUS. SIGNAL BOOST THIS NOW

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE

I don’t even know where to begin. With everything going on with Gaza, ISIS, Ferguson, the ebola outbreaks, and all the other crap the world has been dealing with for the past few years, you’d think this kind of thing would stop. I really hope this is just a disgusting joke. I’ll be praying for my friends in the Louisville area.

I’ve been having difficulties playing anything above high D/Eb on all of my equipment. I don’t have any tension from G-D and I’m not adding any adverse pressure, but for some reason I’m bottoming out in my mouthpieces (Hammond 4S, 4Mb, and 4ML) and closing off my aperture. I don’t seem to have any problems with flexibility up there, and my range is the same when I practice on just my leadpipe or just my mouthpieces so I know it’s not an efficiency thing. My lips might possibly be rolling outward which is closing off the airstream, but it’s not happening until I try to play E or higher. I don’t have any air leaks in my embouchure, and from video/audio recordings I have a consistent timbre and embouchure setup all the way up to D/Eb. I can’t figure out why E and up is like hitting the emergency breaks.

Anybody got tips or theories for what else might be going on, or what I can do to remedy “bottoming out” in my mouthpieces?

When I was upset or suffering from a terrible day, nothing cheered me up more, even for a minute, than watching this man’s films or watching his interviews online. There is no way you could not laugh or crack a smile and his comedic nature. Thank you Robin.
