Okay so my girlfriend and I of almost two years started watching this show because it's her absolute favorite. Over the course of a month to a month and a half of watching a few episodes every night or so for awhile, we got about a third of the way into season 3, like episode 7 or eight.
I am 28, she is 29. She has a son who is about to be 4 in a few weeks.
We were starting to have some issues that caused us to breakup unfortunately. We've each wanted to marry one another but the issues plaguing us were my areas of just being overly comfortable. Only doing huge gestures in the chase and slowing down after awhile which made her not feel special. I wasn't always putting her and her son first as I should have been doing despite looking at them as my future.
Needless to say, I had the epiphany wakeup call that I need to be better. Mind you I'm not changing for this girl specifically; however, she does help me be the best version of myself and these changes are where I have always wanted to see myself but laziness and selfishness kept me from getting there.
Why am I telling you all of this? I haven't finished the show.
As I write this, I am on season 5 episode 19, watching on my own in hopes of being more of the romantic I am that Ted exhibits. She and I are talking but it just seems she's coming from a place of being scared that I will fall into the same pattern of laziness and not be there to support her and her son which like honestly I know I won't let her down.
As I mentioned, this is her favorite show. Like ever ever. I'm sure it's most of yours too.
Early on into watching season 1, she said, "I have always wanted a blue french horn. I will get one someday" and I immediately jotted that down into my brain.
So I went out and bought one. Just a french horn that I'm about to go get paint for to match it to the color on the show. I literally paused my TV, took a picture, then ran the color onto a Google Hex Code lookup to find the perfect shade. I want this to be so perfect. I'm gonna spend the day painting it and continuing to watch the show.
The whole entire reason I'm writing this post: Because I haven't yet finished, I don't know if the significance of the blue french horn continues. I'm sure it does as I saw Funko Pop released a Ted Mosby character holding one. For everyone here that finished the show, without giving spoilers, will this be incredibly romantic to present to my now ex if the conversation leads to that point of potentially... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi guys, My name is Alex and I’ve been making music under Mako for about 8 years now. Really excited to hang today…long time lurker and proud member of the feastandexist fan club
I released my second album today, called FABLE. take a peek here!
I also split my time collaborating with League Of Legends. We’ve made some awesome stuff over the years, including their latest Worlds Anthems since 2017, and we have some crazy exciting new projects coming in 2021
Come say whattup!
ladies, think about it. you put your hand up the bell and adjust it to make different sweet sounds come out of it. every female horn player is a lesbian.
bonus khantent: why do lesbians play the cello? because once you've had that between your legs no man can measure up.
/uj every female horn player may also be a trans man in denial. see: me in high school.
A friend sent me this poem that he wrote in HS and gave me permission to share anonymously. Hope it gives someone a good laugh.
My French horn
O! how the valves are worn
I smell like slide grease
I just need to finish working on this piece
I work day and night
practicing my concerto making sure the rhythm is tight
My brain says go to bed
but I will keep practicing instead
when the clock ticks away the hours
and I haven't taken multiple showers
at the end if it all I think about what I have done
my regrets are very little to none
whether it be the oil stains on my shirt
or how much my head starts to hurt
I know it will all be worth it
Nothing will ever make me quit.
I am looking to purchase a decent French horn. Playing with be for personal pleasure...maybe some ensembles at church at the most. Long ago I learned on a single F horn, but as long as I’m starting over, was wondering about diving in to a double F/Bb horn. Used ones look so beat up, but affordable new horns seem too good to be true. Any advice would be appreciated as regards makers and quality. Thank you so much!
I’ve recently rewatched the show. In the episode “something blue” Ted and robin break up and are asked to return the blue French horn to the restaurant and if they do then they’ll get their ID and credit cards back (if they didn’t then I’m fairly sure the restaurant will come after them because now they know who they are).
However, when robin moves in with Don and asks for space from Barney and Ted, she moves out without telling Ted when exactly she’ll move out. When Ted returned, the blue French horn was on the floor against the wall in her bedroom. How did they get the French horn back? Just thought that was interesting.
I am a student at the Zagreb Music Academy in Croatia currently writing my Master's Degree thesis. I come from Petrinja which is a small town that was recently hit by an earthquake which destroyed the entire town basically, including my home. I study the French Horn and have decided to offer my help in learning how to play the horn and am offering lessons so I could help my family.
My hourly rate is $20.
I hope to see you!
I want to hang a blue french horn on my wall.
Any ideas where I can get one? The ones I found were very small.
Is it possible to just buy a french horn and paint it blue?
I hope someone did the same thing and could help me out :)
I was given a French horn for Christmas. I don't know how to play it, but I'm excited to learn. (I always played clarinet.) The horn was bought used on eBay and honestly, I'm not sure it's working right, even though the person who gave it to me (who also doesn't play French horn, lol) took it in for cleaning/servicing beforehand. Anybody out there who has played one enough to give me some advice?
It's a pretty simple selection and can send you the MIDI, as well as a rough draft of the song with the French horn parts boosted. Thanks in advance if anyone's able to help out!
