I HAVE ARRIVED

Happy Easter everyone! While some of you are with family or eating jelly beans or looking for colorful eggs, Yours Truly is sitting on the couch in her underwear. This is how I roll. Enough about me, let's focus on me:

I think I may be “getting somewhere” with my comic! It’s a mixed bag, mind you. New followers have slowed down considerably. (I know. I know. I gotta get busy with The Plan). Yet, there are a few things that excite me GREATLY! Whether they excite anyone else is beyond me. But let me share –

LOST IN TRANSLATION?
Heckies if I know! I have no idea if anything is lost in translation, but how cool is THIS?! The buns speak multiple languages!

LET’S GET POLITICAL! POLITICAL
Turns out Sammy was a 2016 meme.


 



GOING WHERE NO BUN HAS GONE BEFORE

My first cease and desist opportunity!



Dammit, Jim!
They left out the punchline!


















OOMPA OOMPA EVERYBODY OOMPA
Some folks have brought to my attention that Sammy plays the tuba. Yes. Yes he does.
I mean, he also plays the bagpipes, paints, is a mime, etc. Samuel L. Jackson is a regular Renaissance Rabbit.

Lower brass aficionados, however, know that Sammy plays various tubas. Although he prefers a Miraphone 4 flat-valved Bbb, he makes do with the 3 rotary valve *cough*Yamaha*cough*. Of course, where would any rabbit be without a sousaphone? (Band geek talk is so sexy).

Coincidentally, as fate would have it, I played all of the above! Sans bagpipes – instead I had a piston/rotor contrabass G bugle. Take THAT, Sammy!

Here is Sammy in all his glory and his – umm – inspiration.

ROTARY VALVE



Rehearsing in the High School Theatre

SOUSAPHONES



Don't I look tired?
Blame Mr. Lehrer: Band Director














Honestly, I loved it. So much so that I commemorated those times in my flesh:

My  tattoo









My tattoo on Facebook.
And said Band Director!













I have grown to appreciate this man wholeheartedly. If ever you have been in marching band, you understand. Of course, do NOT ask him about my very first show whereas I bungled stopping at the 50. On film. Replayed. In front of the entire band. *ahem*
[He just stared at me and said nothing] *ahem again*
What happens in the band room
I share on social media for likes.














CONTRABASS BADASS






To think I now have bingo arms and get winded getting off the couch. And you know as well as That Lady does, Sir Samuel will NOT be outdone:












BUNNY BONUS
So there you have it. Sammy's musical history sans bagpipes. If you made it this far, here is one especially for you:

Snow Rising!









THE END
Does anyone else see an "Fu"?

  1. The fact that this combines Bunnies and Marching Band gives me all kinds of good feels. Band Geeks, forever!!! P.S. I was in the woodwind section(clarinet) and played an E flat Contrabass Clarinet in concert season.
