This is gonna be kinda insane... but what if we all converted our burfdays to time signatures?

My burfday is 6/28 (or 28/6 for the Europeans), which will have to be weirdly math-ified to make it into an even remotely sane time signature.

Since I don't want to bother with that scary 28, I guess I'll go with 28/6. Though I guess I could've rounded that to 32... but i like accuracy.

Since a "sixth note" is a dotted eighth note, that's three 16th notes. 3*28=84, making that 84/16 or a reduced and (marginally) more sane-sounding 21/4 time.

My real birthday comes out to 9/8, which is actually my favorite time signature. Or at least one of my favorites.

Also, if someone decides to make an XHB out of this... can it be NSF+? For uh... no particular reason?

(also pls correct me if I mathed weirdly and tell me if there's a good way to deal with 28, which now that i think about it is half of 56)

I guess mine would be 10/19 which I think would also work better as 19/10. Idk how to make that make sense but yeah that’s what that would be.

sixth note usually refers to 16th note triplets (i guess some people call them sextuplets too), so you have an "irrational" but entirely possible time sig from the get-go with 28/6!

It would not scale up to being the same as any normal time sig though hahah, just would feel like a tempo change between a 4 or 8 feel and your 28.

for the 10s, I suppose you could be notating your feel with 5-tuplets but That would be... something >__>

july 29th.... 7/29? or 29/7? (using my irl birthday L)

(for 29/7)
septuplets are fun, and i could represent 29 as 3 bars of 8 and a bar of 5, or 6 bars of 4 and a bar of 5.

12/31, so close to something perfectly reasonable, and yet so far
