Count until a Pro user comments

Inspired the game over at MAL (http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1518596), let's count upwards and see how far we can go until a count breaker (listed below) comments and makes us start over.
(The title is kept for historical significance. Count breakers were Pro users with 200+ followers in Season 1)

Rules:
- A player may only post once every 24 hours** or after another player has posted, whichever comes first
- A post by a count breaker (listed below) restarts the count (that post is 0)
- The count must go up in order (no missing numbers)
- A counter who holds the last post of a run of at least 10 becomes a place holder
- A counter can only hold one place at a time. If they win a run that is higher than their record on the board, their record is updated; otherwise, the run is ignored and not placed.***
- Top 3 place holders become count breakers next season
- The season restarts every 12 pages
- A run is allowed to spill into the next season, up to a maximum of one page. The new count breakers start as soon as the count is broken or when the count reaches the second page, whichever comes first.*

* Introduced in Season 3
** Introduced in Season 6
*** Introduced in Season 7

As a courtesy, if your post is wrong because someone posted before you, edit your post instead of deleting it.

Current Season: Season 7
Next Season: Page 85

Help with Sax sound

Hi everyone! 

New to the alto sax and i have a quick question, when i go to play i have about one or two seconds of just air and then the sound comes out fine - is this caused by my breathing, embouchure or reed? I have no idea? I just want a clean sound to come out the moment I begin. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! :)

Lets write a story..

I don't know how well this is gonna work, but we should give it a try ight? Anywhoodle, so the game works by a group of people sitting in a circle, and writing a story, one word at a time.
To better explain, I say one word, another person says another word, [not just nouns, we're talking grammatically correct word placement] and it turns into a sentence. This sentence proceeds to have a spontaneous plot and is usually quite entertaining.

Lets see how this works.

I don't know how much rosin is enough/how tight the bow should be

Hello there, I'm a thirteen year old violist who is currently in my school's symphonic and full orchestras. I've been told by some of my peers that "I put too much rosin on my bow and that doing so could make what I play sound muddy". I don't know if this is true or not but I usually put a lot of rosin on my bow and it ends up sounding just fine. another question I have is, how tight is a bow supposed to be before you play? I've been told by some that it's supposed to be super tight and some have told me that it should be super loose. I usually make it loose, cause then I'm able to play fortissimo without what's coming out of my instrument sound scratchy, while when I try to play loud when my bow is tight, it sounds squeaky and scratchy. 

"Flying with Chewie" - John Powell |Week 40| Soundtrack

Hello!

Here is my new all-time favorite track. It is from Solo: A Star Wars Story. I absolutely love how John Powell put his own style into the soundtrack. It definitely comes out in this particular track! He also did such and amazing job writing in the style of John Williams as well. 

What do you all think of this track? Also, what did you think of the movie if you've seen it yet? I thought it was one of the best Star Wars movies out there!! It doesn't beat The Last Jedi, though... :D
