Mehlville Senior High School Band What is your definition of hell?: Mehlville Senior High School Band

By Someone from MHS on Monday, December 7, 1998 - 04:33 pm:

    First off, it's hell and I am for sure about it.

    My band teacher looks like Satan. He twitches and jumps around, spewing spit all over the band like the firey minions of hell. He yells in a voice that is comparable to Satan in its deepness and scratchy tone. He keeps us in the band room, blowing our hot air for as long as he can -- sometimes on weekend and holidays.

    Band music is horrible -- some chords and tones seem like a train whistle in your ear. One band member is quoted as to have said, "Ow, ow, ow," and he is just one of the many who have gone deaf in the process of listening to the percussion section beat their instruments. And it's not just the perc. that bugs the ears. I wont get into that though.

    And last but not least, the band room is below ground. The heat in it is almost unbearable. Most band members are stripped down to almost nothing, which is a sight that I really doubt that you would like to see.

    Just trust me on this one.

    Wow....thank you for that fresh and beautiful reminder of why I'm glad I'm not a teenager, anymore.........It DOES sound bad, and no, I don't think I would want to see the scene which you so aptly described.......Yes, your teacher most likely IS satan-and the band members (esp. the perc. section) are his demons -the percussion demons from hell..........And in which state does this lively and lovely high school exist ?? I may want to go there; possibly perform an exorcism, but most likely avoid it, altogether. Thank you for stopping in, Someone From M.H...........

    This school is in St. Louis Missouri... or an offshoot called Mehlville.

    I'm guessing you were a band member once.

By Me.......... on Wednesday, December 9, 1998 - 10:50 am:

    Nope, I was never in band-only chorus-pretty much as bad-although I DO think Band would be worse....... Hey , we're neighbors - I'm in K.C. !Whaddaya know ???? Now get back to class !!!!!

By MHS sucks on Wednesday, December 9, 1998 - 09:17 pm:

    Class? This school HAS no class!

By Sheila on Wednesday, December 9, 1998 - 11:03 pm:

    been in st. louis.
    been in band.
    hell pales in comparison.

    what do you play?

    do you have to march?

    wanna be in my parade?

By MHS band sucks on Saturday, December 12, 1998 - 09:04 pm:

    play everything.

    yes I have to march.

    parades suck.

    i would have some sympathy for you, but you have caused me to have terrible flashbacks involving Hitlerish bandleaders, godawful bus trips to wretched ugly little towns wearing wool uniforms in August, and those fucking percussionists!

    Being first chair, directly beneath the Evil Eye. Oboe mockery. It's all coming back to me now.

    Many years later it paid off. I got to meet Dave Brubeck and because of him a bunch of really neat persons. There is a connection there, vis a vis the Hitlerish figure and the Octet.

By Whet on Sunday, December 13, 1998 - 05:25 pm:

    Did band and chorus in high school, plus a couple other musical groups.
    Some of it was a tad on the hellish side, selling fruit and spray n wipe cleaner to raise money right up there, BUT the friends I still have today from that era of my life were all in the band/chorus.

By MoonUnit on Sunday, December 13, 1998 - 08:25 pm:

    We never hand band at my high school... or if we did it was kept very quiet. We didnt have cheerleaders either, but I think thats becuase it was an all girls school. We did have dance and we did have a culture group (thats the maori culture, and no I dont think u had to be maori to join)

    From what I've heard of band I guess I'm one of the lucky ones ;)

By Dodi on Sunday, November 28, 2004 - 02:40 am:

By Kid from mhs colorguard on Sunday, November 28, 2004 - 12:03 pm:

By Dodi on Sunday, November 28, 2004 - 04:03 pm:

By Dodi on Monday, November 29, 2004 - 06:42 pm:

    It sounds like your adrenals are burned out and this will keep you up, with anxiety too, if you have that.
    I used to not sleep good, but now, I sleep through the night. I can't say that I wake up feeling refreshed, but the sleep is nice.
    You might want to eat some protein (not much) before you go to bed, cause your body might be hungry. I now take something for my adrenals and so far, their working. I get them from my nutritionalist and it's called Cortico B5 B6.
    Stress and too much coffee will drain your adrenal glands, so be careful.

By V on Monday, November 29, 2004 - 07:57 pm:

    coffee I drink far too much of,and allways feel burned out. :(

By V on Monday, November 29, 2004 - 07:58 pm:

    20 cups a day.
