If you were to draw a Venn diagram that had the following specific set circles:

"Music", "Motion", "Excellence", "Sweat", "Pride", "Spirit", "Culture", "Cult", "Community", "Art", "Education", and "Family"

the zone of common intersect would be labeled "Band".
If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.

1) The hardest thing anyone could get themselves into.
2) The breeding ground of the weirdest and funniest people the world has ever seen.
3) That's what makes those scary people who come out of the band room so scary.
1- If you're not running, you're wrong! Go! Reset! Go! Reset! Go Reset!

2- I never thought I wouldn't change from this thing, but I was wrong, very wrong. *bahs like a lamb*

3- Normal Person: I get it now!
Band-o: What?
Normal Person: I know why I don't go near the music department hallway!
Band-o: Do tell!
Normal Person: Scary People like YOU come out of there!
