Don't hold grudges, because then you won't be able to use your hands for anything else.

Well hello there! I'm Max, one of the Executives here at Route 50. I also happen to be the youngest of us, but that's just a random fact. :D

I have been a member of Route 50 for over 5 years now, as you can see up above. When I first joined, I was very into the role-plays here, but have since receded into lurking, monitoring and helping when I can.

I am currently attending Kansas State University, majoring in Music Education, with an emphasis in instrumental music. Basically, I'll be a band teacher. That is, if I don't make it in a rock band with one of my best friends. :D

I guess I'll wrap this up now. A few quick facts to leave you with: I love The Beatles and Muse and Rush. I can play at least 8 different instruments, but not at the same time. I am addicted to Dr. Pepper. :D #dotdotD

Well, that was fun.

Fex's Beatles


Left to right, it's Paul, Ringo, John, and George.

These used to be in my sig, but with the restricted length, they were put here. Thanks for making these, Fexible!

Senior Recital

June 13, 2014 at 11:13pm

Fact: I play euphonium.

This past April, I shared a recital with a bassoonist. We both played solo pieces, and then closed with a duet. It was a fun experience, and I really loved performing for people and having the opportunity to share music that I enjoyed with them. This recital also happened to be a requirement for me to graduate, so I guess it's good that I got that out of the way during my sophomore year.

Because I love to play music with other people, I decided that I would have another recital during my senior year. I already have most of the music picked out already, too.

Kansas State University Alma Mater arranged for solo euphonium; I will play this one out of sight, hiding in the pipes of the organ (hopefully)
Either a duet (probably with oboe) or a solo
Duet with Clarinet (Canzonetta) This will hopefully be performed with someone from a different school (KU, maybe)
In my time of leaving, a composition by myself. I'll be conducting it and maybe playing organ.
*Intermission*
Sonata for Baritone Horn (probably, maybe a different solo)
Outer Hebrides (organ piece)
Bugler's Holiday Except for two euphoniums, tuba, and tuba/euphonium ensemble accompaniment. This is a really fun piece.

There will probably be some changes to this, and I sort of just wanted to get this put out there so that I can have it somewhere besides in a document. This recital will be in October 2015 (hopefully), and I am going to attempt to have a livestream of it, but if you so happen to be in the Manhattan, Kansas area, then you should stop by and attend this recital! I mean, who wouldn't want to listen to an hour of me and my friends playing music?

But yeah. I'm pretty excited for this, especially if the duets that I want to play end up working out. I may get to add more duets, depending on how long some of them are. We'll see.

And. end entry

Yesterday, I walked into the music building carrying my euphonium and ukulele. I was primed for a great musician joke. BUT NO ONE SAW ME CARRYING THEM.

The joke was that someone would comment on the instruments I'm carrying, and then I say, "I'm a very selfless musician. I only play instruments that are about you."

I'm starting to compose a piece for flute, clarinet, violin, piano, and fixed media, and I'm really excited about it! The fixed media will be a digital track of various insect sounds, of which there is a very wide variety. This is bringing together my work in an entomology lab and my music major. SO PUMPED AH

It's a terrible moment when you feel like you can't text anyone because you feel like you would just be annoying them.

I need a reset button for stress/emotions right now.

I'm ready for summer to be over. I miss my friends that didn't stay here for the summer. I'm not saying that I'm not happy with the friends that I do get to see on a regular basis, but I miss the ones that I haven't seen at all.

I want to pack my car full of explosives. And then detonate it while I am at a safe watching-distance.

I'm on a trip with someone who thinks that he always has to be talking. I'm at the point where I just want some peace and quiet. So I'll take a nap.

I'm currently in Ohio, on a road trip with a friend. He was visiting Ohio State University today, while I was off playing organs in huge churches. Needless to say, I have made lifelong memories today.
