Cat Nominated for “Ice Bucket Challenge”
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
It’s been all over the web. Eventually it had to get around to Lyle.
The cat opened up his Facebook yesterday morning to find that he’d been nominated for the popular “Ice Bucket Challenge” by a friend. Suffice it to say, he was not pleased.
"Lyle hates water," says friend Jon O’Rourke. "He’s like most cats in that regard. But freezing cold water a bunch with ice in it? There’s no way he’s doing that."
Lyle had better decide quickly - at the time of this writing, the cat had less than ten hours to douse himself in ice water or donate to ALS research.
"He’s a bit torn," says O’Rourke. "He’s all for philanthropy, but he doesn’t want to look like a wimp. I hope his wallet’s as big as his ego."

DAN: When you do interviews, you’re faced with the choice to either be the most boring person on earth or just get ridiculous things written about you from time to time
JOSH HOROWITZ: Sometimes it might be good to be boring
DAN: It might be but I just get bored of myself

my ascent into adulthood
I’ve probably earned the right to screw up a few times. I don’t want the fear of failure to stop me from doing what I really care about.
If we fits, we sits! ^o^

This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
favorite things about this
- literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
- the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
- all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
- that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
