"classical music is boring"
Stravinsky’s rite of spring is about a girl who dances herself to death to appease the Russian god of spring.
When it premiered the crowd got so amped up they opened up a mosh pit in the theater and the night would be forever known as the “riot of spring”
There’s a piece in the bassoon repertoire called “Dead Elvis” and when you buy the music you have to contractually agree to only perform the piece in a full Elvis costume.

I love drawing and I was hoping you could give me a few tips on drawing sjin's glorious hair (I draw chibis) :) thanks
I’ve been putting off answering this question for a while for the simple fact that I don’t consider myself to be an artist, and I’m sure that there’s loads of more useful tips elsewhere. Take into consideration that even after two years of studying Creative Writing I still can’t manage to call myself a writer: so add that to the fact that I didn’t even take art for GCSE and you can probably see why I don’t consider drawing to be my forte~
I do still enjoy it though, so since you’ve asked, I’ve done a quick mock up of the kind of things I would typically use.
For hair in general, especially for chibis, don’t be afraid to go a little exaggerated. Even though Sjin has short hair in real life, I would personally still give him a little something. As for beards, I never make it too complicated. I either just do a speckled stubble effect or a full block of colour for the beard (so, imagine that second beard is filled with one colour. That’d make a pretty simple Tom Perkins beard for example.) If it’s more bushy like Honeydew’s, draw in a more cloud-life bobbled effect than just slight curves.
For the whole Sji-bang, I personally like a bit of a curly moustache. I think it looks cute, but then again I’m a sucker for a good beard. I tend to get my inspiration from their Avatars- even when I do the Yogpups that’s where I’ll get my references; so this coloured example on the right would be something that I’d typically do if I was having a go myself.
So yeh, there you go. Hope this helped in some way.
If all fails, draw him in a beanie.
