Hey guys! I just finished editing and uploading this song I wrote and recorded. If you wanna check it out, maybe give some feedback, that would be too legit to quit :D

Listen/purchase: IF I CAN CHANGE by One For the Road




Dumb little things.

Tonight is the first time since my ex left that I’ve been able to listen to a playlist that I made in Pandora called “Sweet and Romantic”.   It wasn’t really for her, it was actually something I made for when I was writing mushy fanfic and needed help getting in that headspace.   But one of the things about my divorce was that I stopped being able to listen to romantic songs.

Because a romantic song would send me into a depressive mood swing from HELL.   It would make me think of her and then I would get angry at her for lying to me.  If I was lucky that was it.  If it was a bad day, it would cause me to replay all the times she called me worthless in my head.  If it was a really bad day, I would remember all the emotional mindfuckery, gaslighting, and be left with this hollow feeling like I don’t know how to trust people anymore.   If it was a REALLY REALLY bad day it would make me think about the time she held me down and sexually assaulted me.   If it was a horrifying day, there might be flashbacks.  

So basically for the last 18 months I haven’t listened to sappy or romantic music.  I’ve worn out my Killers CDs and my Big Gay Erasure playlist on Pandora.   I’ve listened to more Top 40 than any other time in my life. 

Tonight is the first night I’ve been able to listen to that station.   Small things.   Such small things.   




Jason Derulo - “Talk Dirty”

On Monday my 12 and 13 year olds at the library were singing this song.

You do not know horrifying like a 12 year old girl looking right at you as she sings about the “first class seat on my lap girl” and rubs her crotch.  

I was like YOU ARE TOO YOUNG AND NEED TO STOP SINGING THIS SONG RIGHT NOW DON’T RUIN IT FOR ME

Because this is my Harrison headcanon song for his life pre-Wayne and no one call tell me otherwise.

"Mephistopheles" - Beethoven’s Last Night

"I’m your God of second chance."

this is just too hardcore man

This rock opera does not get the love it deserves.  I’ve had this CD for 10 plus years and it is awesome and heartbreaking.

Talking about t.A.T.u.

bisexual-books:

I don’t really want to talk about the Olympics, but I think I need to because I am a squid of rage right now.   

I am sick to death of media coverage of t.A.T.u. performing at the Olympics that demeans these two and erases the years of abuse that went into that ‘fake-lesbian’ act. Yeah, I’m looking at you Towleroad and  especially you, AfterEllen.  I expect as much from mainstream media but queer media, you are on my shit list.   

For those who don’t know, t.A.T.u. was a musical duo in the early 2000’s marketed by their creepy manager Ivan Shapavalov (who was pushing 40 at the time) as lesbians.  They were scripted by him to say explicit sexual things during interviews. This started when they were 14 years old.  

When they came to America, both of their English language skills (especially Julia’s) were very limited.  No one is sure if they even knew what they were saying.

This same manager got Julia pregnant at 16 and to keep her performing, forced her into having an abortion.   He used sex and drugs to keep them under his thumb until about 2008.    

 Lena admitted she was straight but a staunch supporter of LGBT rights and Julia came out as bisexual.  They both participated in Moscow Pride. Were they a couple ever? No. But one is queer.  Regardless of if they were a couple or not, for a generation of lesbian and bisexual women, they could turn on MTV back when it played music videos and see two women saying “I love you” while trying to escape homophobic persecution.    That is a narrative we almost never see in mainstream music today, a decade later.   

But I don’t see people celebrating t.A.T.u.’s cultural legacy despite being survivors of abuse.   I see people enjoying a hit of holier-than-thou and calling them fake-lesbians.  

It’s reasonable to ask if t.A.T.u. performing at the Olympics is collaboration or a chance for Russians to see a queer woman and an ally on stage.   We can debate if they should have done the gig.   We can discuss why several of Julia’s queerer songs have been removed from itunes or how her biography online has repeatedly been edited to remove these facts about her life.   We can talk about how their abuse is similar to the high rates of abuse, depression, and suicide for bisexual people (higher than that of gay, lesbian, or straight folks).    

But if your response to t.A.T.u.  is to be angry at them for imitating or appropriating lesbianism and not to be angry at the way they were abused and manipulated, then you are a terrible fucking person.  You’re the one setting queer rights back, not a pair of emotionally, physically, and sexually abused teenage girls.
