Music, Tumblr, and Work: darktripz: The Epic Of Gilgamesh In Sumerian The EPIC OF GILGAMESH is the earliest great work of literature that we know of, and was first written down by the Sumerians around 2100 B.C. Ancient Sumer was the land that lay between the two rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates, in Mesopotamia. The language that the Sumerians spoke was unrelated to the Semitic languages of their neighbors the Akkadians and Babylonians, and it was written in a syllabary (a kind of alphabet) called “cuneiform”. By 2000 B.C., the language of Sumer had almost completely died out and was used only by scholars (like Latin is today). No one knows how it was pronounced because it has not been heard in 4000 years. What you hear in this video are a few of the opening lines of part of the epic poem, accompanied only by a long-neck, three-string, Sumerian lute known as a “ngish-gu-di”. The instrument is tuned to G - G - D, and although it is similar to other long neck lutes still in use today (the tar, the setar, the saz, etc.) the modern instruments are low tension and strung with fine steel wire. The ancient long neck lutes (such as the Egyptian “nefer”) were strung with gut and behaved slightly differently. The short-neck lute known as the “oud” is strung with gut/nylon, and its sound has much in common with the ancient long-neck lute although the oud is not a fretted instrument and its strings are much shorter (about 25 inches or 63 cm) as compared to 32 inches (82 cm) on a long-neck instrument. For anyone interested in these lutes, I highly recommend THE ARCHAEOMUSICOLOGY OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST by Professor Richard Dumbrill. The location for this performance is the courtyard of Nebuchadnezzar’s palace in Babylon. The piece is four minutes long and is intended only as a taste of what the music of ancient Sumer might have sounded like. “The Sumerians” by Grendel Dark

Blessed, Friends, and Music: one of the nice things about heterosexuals i never see talked about on here is that they haven't already heard all your gay jokes yet. i just really a new audience sometimes for my completely appreciate having automatic responses to phrases like 'ill be straight with you. so, shoutout over lame to all the innocent hets out there who have a genuine giggle quips that a fellow queer would groan and hit me for. ilu guys. momnar I recently closet, anyway?" and I automatically said "me". She lost her mind. Full cackling in the middle of the store. I never thought l'd see the day that joke would work but here I was, blessed with an unexperienced heterosexual. It scoped my coworker when she asked me "What's in the no was transcendent. team-lionheart7 I once had a girl working "I thought this would be straighter when I got done with it." And I said, a display where I work, and she commented, on thing about me", and everyone around us "my mother thought the same lost it. It was a blessed moment. puppybearuniverse I knew a kid who saw my "Let's get something straight: I'm not" bracelet and ended up laughing about it all day and telling anyone who would listen pinktwink I told a coworker that changing the music I picked would be homophobic and she lost her shit like it was the funniest thing ever thelilnan i used to offhandedly say stuff to my customers on campus like "unfortunately i'm very gay" and it always took them by surprise. they loved it bloodydelirium visiting a (straight) friend recently and when he was making Iwas me breakfast he made me extra toast. I, of course, upon seeing this went 'fuck yeah gay rights' and he lost it. Should have seen his fave when I pulled the opposite joke, the 'this is homophobia' at any inconvenience. Was amazing. I Guess I Don’t Have Gay Friends

THERE ARE NO RULES, FUCK THE RULES. GO. FIND YOUR WINGS. I FOUND MY WINGS AND IM STILL FLYING AND I WILL NEVER EVER LAND. but some of you have to find yourself ya know. i knew the who i was at like age 10. i knew the music i loved the colors i knew what i was into. most of you listen to what ever is hot or what your friends like, yall dress how everyone else dress, yall do what everyone else do. FUCKING STOP BEING A FUCKING FOLLOWER. read the comments, the weak ass follower that will never make a difference ever cause they fucking SUCK are gonna say some shit like " easier said than done" or you are a hyporcrite" or you changed" or some stupid shit like that, cause they are most like the weak fuck im talking about and cant cope with it, cause they are scared. DONT BE SCARED. idk why im typing this. im on a lake on vacation just drawing and listening to music (been playing CC The World for like 6 hours) and just realized oh wow, im on a vacation for no reason, this is crazy, ive dreamed of this, how did i get this far, oh yeah, by trusting myself and not following that path my mom wanted me to go, and surround myself with other people that wanted more outta like and trust my wild ideas, andi put my art out and people liked it and trusted me, and now im here. i guess what im trying to say is i want everyone to win. i want everyone to smile, i want everyone to be in a good mood and as annoying and always jumping around like me cause im so fucking happy and grateful, but i realize niggas is scared. or who knows, maybe im just a special one. i dont know anything. im in the woods and i really want to meet a moose in person if i see one im gonna get a photo hahahahahaha oh and RACISM IS FUCKING WEAK AS FUCK anti golf boys and oh this saturday another FW drop from GOLF. love you, today i want you to find your wings.
