Blob Kitty Memorial

I went and visited the shop whose kitty recently died, and there's a little memorial there!

The owner has a bunch of photos of the kitty, including a big album of them taken throughout Kitty's life.  There were cards from local children and business owners, and someone had made a beautiful chalk drawing of the kitty on the sidewalk outside the insurance agency.

I am so glad the kitty is being remembered.

Oh no!  The big ginger tom who lived in a local shop window has passed away!

I am so sad to hear this.  I liked to visit him. :(

Bye bye, Blob Cat.  You made everyone happy, and I hope wherever you go will make you very happy.

To Be One of Us

Man, I realized I haven't made a public post about non-work stuff in a while.  I need to stop doing that, so here's a change of pace! (Well, okay, it's slightly about work, but not the actual work part of it.)

I mentioned how I kinda accidentally helped make an art show for queer/trans disabled folks.  I was joking about how many of us there were and hey, six months later, SURPRISE ART SHOW!  And of course, I went to the reception and stuff, wearing my name tag and trying very hard to look like a Real Artist (TM).

And something I didn't quite expect was how emotional the show was for me.  Because I was no longer the freak in the room.

I was surrounded by my peers, who at the same time were very different from me.  We had people with service dogs, and people signing, and there were wheelchairs and a lift and gender neutral bathrooms.  I could go to the bathroom without that little twinge of apprehension.  I wasn't the only person using unusual pronouns.  There were ace folks and trans folks and it was nice.

It felt so good to be surrounded by other folks like us and their art.  I've been feeling down lately about jerks on the Internet who say trans disabled people don't exist except for the attention, that there's no point to us existing.  Being surrounded by the art we made, by all the people who came to the show to support it and us, it felt really good.  It made me really hapy.

It felt good to be one of us.

On Building Headspace

Aug. 19th, 2016 | 03:58 pm

Headspaces can be handy for system communication and organization.  Ours allows us to talk to each other and act upon each other with conscious awareness, rather than out of sight and out of mind.  However, our headspace didn’t just pop fully formed from the abyss; most of it, we had to actively create.  If you’re interested in creating your own, here is how.

Infinity Smashed sound-alikes

Aug. 17th, 2016 | 05:37 pm

(originally posted ages ago on tumblr) A silly little post about real-life analogues to the voices of the Infinity Smashed cast.

M.D. sounds like a cross between Jerry Lewis and Stephanie Dougherty.  She always sounds like she spent the prior hour shouting.  Her voice inhabits a special frequency of annoying which is she is very proud of.

Biff sounds like a cross between Christian Kane and George Thorogood, though the accent is all wrong. (Biff’s accent is an ungodly kludge of conflicting Southern white and black accents that all equate to ‘trash.’) He can speak “standard” US English, if he puts forth some effort, but it sounds creepy and unnatural and gives everyone the screaming meemies.  Mumbles a LOT.

Raige is pretty much entirely embodied in Nate Hartley. (That clip is from when Hartley was an adult though; his teen voice is more accurate.) Face, voice, EVERYTHING.  His voice is actually naturally deeper than Biff’s, it’s just that Raige talks high and hasn't spent ages training his voice.

Thomas’s speaking voice sounds like Bruno Mars (if Mars was from Texas) and his singing voice is a lot like Mitch Grassi’s. (Grassi is the high voice--Thomas can sing higher than most people assume.) Pop star smooth all the way.

Comboy Bob sounds exactly like the piggy bank from Toy Story.

Impervious to Weirdness

Aug. 11th, 2016 | 07:51 pm

One of the tropes you hear about multiples (or whatever Special Snowflake who’s too weird to exist) is that we want attention. I personally have rarely found it to be so. Most multiples I speak to are terrified, hiding behind anon screenames, dummy email accounts, and stating the absolute bare minimum they have to. They are PETRIFIED of being found out, petrified that they are faking or trying to usurp someone’s Very Serious Mental Illness.

I like HM in June, how about you?Collapse )

The Systems Everyone's Ashamed Of

Aug. 11th, 2016 | 07:44 pm

Even in something like multiplicity, which is popularly considered an unbelievably florid mental illness, there is a hierarchy.  Having people in your head, that’s okay, but they have to be the RIGHT people, or you’re just… TOO crazy, I guess, and faking it for shits and giggles.

HM spam posts sing this song, doo-da doo-da!Collapse )

Better Miserable Than Crazy

Aug. 11th, 2016 | 07:38 pm

People assume that self-identified multiples just accept their existence with no incredulity or skepticism whatsoever.  These people don’t know shit.
