Up Front Cymbal Summary

So the story goes. . .
A percussion student was asked to do a summary of the section about cymbals in the Up Front book.... Here is what came of this assignment...I have not altered this in any way: I hope you enjoy variations of Decay.... and I particularly enjoyed the Freudian slip in the closing statement.

[i]ther are many shapes and sizes of cymbals. ranging from suspended cymbals(18";-20";) to tam tams. each unit in there own ways.
smaller accent or crash cymbalas typiccally deliver a quick attack , with a quick decay. cina cymbals come is almost any shape and size you can imajon.the mojority of china's have a quick dickay , and sound besst when need to add some trashy accent collor. splash cymbals , my favorite, are the smallest in the crash family. they are high pitched and deckay quickly. sizzle cymbals have loos rivles that are drilled into the cymbale. when the cymbale is struck, thes rivets buzz along w/ the vibration. ride cymbale are not to be used as suspended cymbales. they are designed to preduce clear, stick articulation and dry crshes.
when playing syspended cymbals be syre not ot over play. each cymbal has a linit ot how loud it is physicamy capable of playing. remember slower is better. when rolling, roll on the edge of the cymbale , with each hand directly across from each other.
hand cymbals are moste comonly used in any bad, corps, or orchestra.[/i]

What the heck does this mean? hehe.

I'm starting to pick up on a lot of this lingo since I play Warcraft a good bit. But I try avoid being one of those
";OMG U GT PWD LOL U Newbcke";�� people :)
(translation: oh my god, you got owned haha you newb-cake)
I'll tell ya what I really can't stand, when someone cracks a joke and some kids say ";lol";.  And I don't mean ";el o el";, i mean ";lowl"; or worse ";lawlz";

I mean what if everyone was at a live Brian Reagan show, and instead of laughing, they just all shouted ";Lowl!!!";  ewwww.

By the way, I'm also one of those weirdos that use actual words in a txt msgs. I also enjoy the letters A E I O and U.

Still wondering what the heck this means :) Maybe I'll google it....

EDIT: after googling, 133t h4x0rz = Leet Hackers...ok... still have no clue about txt + ictd
Don't bother...  it's generally that the computer geeks will use character replacements -- 3 for ";E";, 1 for ";I";, etc.  They'll also add lettering to sound unique, so that something might artificially rhyme, like r0x0rz ur b0x0rz.

The texting crowd shortens words excessively.  They love acronyms, too, and not just ";LOL";.  For example, you'll see use of IDK for ";I don't know";, bf or gf for boyfriend or girlfriend, and lots of short, short things that resemble license plates.  ";U R awsum"; and ";C U L8R"; kinds of shortening.  That's basically how I'd explain ";texting"; to people -- it's like a way you would write if you spoke ";vanity plate";.
OK, well i'm versed on the txting terms, just not the ";+ictd";  part of it :)

Almost all my hard test questions are answer with IDK nowadays :)
