Idk

Looks like I’m getting another violin by my dads friends aunt, I heard it’s 200 year old, Italian hand crafted, jubebee wood violin. It’s worth 500,000 dollars and I heard it’s beautifu. Idk what I’m gonna do with this violin, this is gonna be the third one I’m keeping in my house and now I have the get better security systems and insurance and a better case which idk how I’m gonna afford it when I’m the poorest person in my town. Anyone have any suggestions on security systems, rousin, strings, bows (hopefully a baroque style bow) cases and more care things for this expensive violin. The stuff I use in my violin is pretty good but it’s more of beginner to intermediate low violins, I use dominant strings, d’addrio premium rousin, factor cases for all violins, factory bows for all violins.

Any suggestions for this new 500,000 dollar violin will be GREATLYYYYYY appreciation

What, in your mind, is your greatest musical achievement?

Mine would probably be winning an international piano competition (in my state's "division" - there's a "division" in a good number but not all of the US states and a bunch of other countries around the world) and getting to play in Carnegie hall :D
(it was on January 20 2019 - driving down to new york was a NIGHTMARE - new england winters are the worst because ice falls from the sky quite frequently :/ we flew back so yeet)

I played Rachmaninov's "Little Red Riding Hood" etude (op. 39 no. 6) - if you haven't heard it I STRONGLY recommend listening to it - it's INSANE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6pnCSeuOds)

Composers’s inspiration flow chart

A famous piece of Japanese anime music https://musescore.com/user/16878501/scores/4099766
I realised it is heavily inspired by Rachmaninov, see m19.
And apparently Rach is inspired by the Russian big dudes including Tchaikovsky, Scriabin, and some others romantic masters. Then, early romantic masters are more or less inspired by Bach, including Beethoven and Chopin, despite Bach might not be that famous at the time before mandy. Anyway, that’s why Bach was know as the grand master!

Icons not showing up correctly

Same computer and browser that I have been using every time I report these issues(Windows 10 OS, Dell Inspiron 15 laptop, Mozilla Firefox browser).

This icon issue started several days back. But at first, it only affected me when I initially logged in and as soon as I went to another page, the icons would show up correctly(like the arrow for the upload icon, the bubble for the comment icon, and everything else).

Today, it is more permanent. No matter what page I'm on, the icons look like gibberish. Like the upload icon looks like F0RR in a little box instead of the upload icon. Only time on the site makes the icons look normal. What is causing this and when will the icons get back to normal without me having to wait to see the normal icons?

Just to clarify, the reply and like icons aren't affected and neither is the notification icon but pretty much every other icon is affected.

Revolution 2?

So hear me out

Last summer was a golden age in RSA's history. Bountiful Poetry, Art, and Music was created during this peaceful period. It was beautiful, it really was, and I feel that it tragically came to an end during the first few school months. Then the Dark Age came: nothing much happened, "Musix Fox" was the biggest controversy, and everyone said they were waiting for something interesting. So, I wished it would become a Second Golden Age this summer. So here I am, watching RSA become pretty much a spam/crappost (gotta keep it PG) server, almost as content-less as the Discord Server.
For real though, we used to have about 5 or so discussions per day at most, with only like 2 being heavily commented on. It wasn't nearly as active, but it was usually people talking and communicating about their lives, or making jokes, or whatever i dont remember. Now I feel a whole bunch of peeps in this group are making silly little discussions of "lyric games" or whatever. Well, I say we have cool stuff once again.
So what do we do? Well, of course, we are gonna overthrow Rebecca Y. and implement a new communist regime with Rebecca Y. at its center. To do this, however, we will need to have a REVOLUTION 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO.
so who's on the train?

Listen to me practice! (update day 6)

So @TheLight OI had asked me to try performing one of his scores (It's beautiful by the way, check it out!)  
https://musescore.com/thelightoi/arabesque-no-1 

I am in serious need of constant reminder to get practicing, so what I thought of doing is making a discussion so people could listen to my progress on the song. I will practice that day and record what I went through (just once). 

Feel free to bash my mistakes XD

PS. No day 1 because I was focused on changing the notation so it's easier to read and sight read through it like once.
