Maggie Does Bagpiping

And proof of my bagpipingness. I have to twiddle with them more and geek out on the reed a bit more to get it the way I like it. And it's been seven years since I've picked a set of pipes up (how time flies when you're writing werewolf novels). But . . . Maggie piping, nonetheless. More impressive videos to come later.

Color me impressed. I'm kinda waiting for you to put on a cape and fly around your backyard next.

Eleni @ La Femme Readers said...

Hm Maggie, wasn't expecting this one :) Great job though, very impressive lad...

Maggie Stiefvater said...

That will be the next one, Hannah.

Awesome! Sounds like you still have it in you. :)My hubbie plays the pipes, too. I remember watching him air up a queen-sized air mattress once (straight from the box) without a pump. Bagpipers are probably some of the only people who can do that. lol

Keep it up!

DUDE! That was awesome!! Scared the tar outta my cats... but AWESOME!!

BTW!! I'm reading BALLAD right now. Well, not right now right now. Sadly I have yet to learn how to type and read at the same time... oh and watch videos. I'm learning though.

And you know how I told you that you should write a book about the horned god? Remember that crazy request? SNIKEYS!! U did!! Well, sorta kinda!! I was like "WOAH!! She was ahead of my brain storm!!"

Rock on!!

Hope you have a nice spring ;)

That was flaming excellent! I spent an hour on YouTube last week watching backpipers because I love the sound, you're too cool.

Em said...

Very cool, Maggie! Congrats on the new toy, and props for the mad piping skills! Looks like it would be quite the workout! Very impressed. :)

Haha, Jessica, I guess I'm in shape, but I don't really have amazing lung capacity. I just had a bagpipe teacher who taught good breath control (we had a lot of younger kids playing pipes, too, so you can't rely on good giant lungs).

Erika, I hope you lOVE it. And I honestly thought you wrote that comment AFTER reading Ballad and I was like, another one? just about him?

Jonathon, thanks!

Em, I'll admit to having a slightly sore left arm after playing yesterday.

erikasbuddy said...

LMAO!! I had a whole presentation to submit to you about his horned god hotness lolz!! (oh! I have pictures that you will say -- yes... I see the hotness hahahs)

I squeed to my buddy about it (who had read Ballad) and she didn't say boodles to me. I emailed her the other day if it was killing her to not tell me... but she hasn't emailed back (yet)

My library had Ballad checked out for forEVER so it took me a while to catch up ;)

Oh dude!! Seriously!! Thinks about it. We don't have a hot steamy (teen approOved) romance of the antler king (what a cool name to call him!) and the fair maiden. I'm probably going to whine about it for a while lolz! I know you have to deal with the wolves but thing about the hooves when you get done :P

I finished BALLAD last night and EEEEE!! I freaking adored how it ended! I really really dug how James pretty much got his Happily Ever After and yet Dee is still a bit scarred from all those faeries.

BUT!! You sneaky thing!! YOu left it open!! I saw that!! (or read that). Hmmm.. Is there perhaps another chapter hidden in your computer somewhere? If you look on Goodreads all the Girlies are dying for another (yes... I just plugged another website on yours lolz)taste.

Uber awesome! YOu have such a way with words!! I keep wondering what music you listened to while writing those 2 books. Just amazing!!

You're seriously soo talanted for someone so young. Have you ever seen RATTLE AND HUM? Do you remember the part where BB KING meets BONO and he (KING) tells BONO how he should be older because someone so young shouldn't have such feeling

Start at 1m 38 sec (am I showing my age? lolz!)

I can't wait to see what you come up with next.

Maggie Stiefvater said...
