Congratulations madam, you've just won the internet for being epic.

I play the cello, and this just somehow made it even more epic.

Holy fish paste, that is absolutely amazing! I couldn't imagine how much my hands would hurt after that. Would you mind if I featured this in my magazine, dA Zine? There's info on the project in my journal. This would go in the second issue if you're willing :D

You may use it for non-profit purposes (I guess your dA Zine fits that description). Thanx for commenting!
