Youth in Revolt

I'm at my brother's house in Santa Cruz right now. We're watching this movie Youth In Revolt. Mac rented it. He's my brother's roommate and an old, old friend, but he likes and rents some turd movies.

I tried sleeping through it, then I tried not paying attention and being on the Internet. Then I tried smoking weed and drinking to see if I could get tore up enough to forget it. Now the credits are rolling.

I don't do well with romantic comedies. I feel like they taunt me. My family and I have been in a lot of stores today, and stores also make me depressed. Y'know, because I'm broke and stores are full of things I can't afford. I put a quarter in a machine to get an Urbanzee and the machine ate my quarter. It really sucked, coz a quarter is about as much money as I'm willing to spend on something silly.

Transgender Day of Remembrance


On the last Monday in May, Americans celebrate Memorial Day, which honors soldiers who died while in service. I'm for the observance. I think we ought to take every opportunity to remember those who were taken too soon for unfortunate reasons.

Every November twentieth, I along with others observe a different Memorial Day. This day is for people who died in a war that they could never escape from. A war that was at times fought in their very own homes. A war that was at times fought against their own families. These soldiers died fighting for their right to be. They died for the causes of love and humanity and the truth only they understood. These people stood up to a world that hated them and wanted them dead. They stood up to a world that taught them to hate themselves and wish themselves dead. They fought a universe for the right to live their lives.

And they didn't make it.

I would say they didn't make it home, but the truth is, unlike the returning veteran, there is no home for the transgendered. There's no opportunity to come back to shore and hug your family and meet your old friends for a drink. That's because the war against transgender is a war that is fought on every nook and cranny of life. It's a genocide that's propagated in your television sitcoms, and assisted by your city counsel. It's an all out attack on the unestablished by the established, and until every single person can accept every single person, the death march will continue. Until nobody is afraid to love their neighbors no matter where they sit on the gender spectrum, people will be murdered. Until it's accepted and respected that not everyone is able to use an outdated and unrealistic standard to understand themselves, our siblings will be murdered in back alleys and left to the rats. Until solidarity is the norm, lives will be lost on hospital beds and in ambulances as doctors stare and ridicule. Every second of every day, unless.

All my passion. All my hope. All my strength and all my love. Until victory.

Cute Girl in a Zeum video.

My uncle was on the board that designed and set up The Zeum. Also, I just wrote a thing about The Zeum for this tour guide thing that I'm trying to get to hire me.

I wish I was as confident and professional as the woman in that video. She must clean up at job interviews.

Twinkie Chan


There's this girl that the East Bay Express reported on and her name is Twinkie Chan and she's all kinds of cute. I kind of want to buy one of her cool scarves, but honestly, I own three scarves, and how many scarves does someone need? Seriously!

I wish I was crafty enough to do something fun with my life. I also wish there was more mixers in this house. I just drank the last of the orange juce, and we have a ton of diet cola, but no whiskey. I bet Twinkie Chan could come up with something to do with all the mismatched booze and mixers.

Elisa Moolecherry


I suggested that my parents might like the show Monk, and of course, they eat it up. It's not a bad show. At least it's not Bones. We were watching an episode last night and Elisa Moolecherry played this alt woman who worked on a Ferris wheels and stabbed a mofo in the chest. She's really cute.

Tara Vegan Piggy


There's a woman named Tara who's on a blog called Vegan Piggy that I found the other day and I really like it. She's really effing cute.

Courtney Crimson

So last month my friend Johnny says he's performing a drag show at a rassling arena in Oakland. I was in the bay for the week, and I jumped at the chance to go kick it with an old friend, and was blown away by the general chaos of a 'backyard' rassling show. It was totally awesome. One of the events that happened during an intermission of the rassling show was The Displayed Labors Sideshow and one of the members of the side show was a cute girl who was wearing a really uncomfortable looking thong, and then she started putting stuff in her nose (a 'human blockhead' act, if you're in the know) and that also looked really uncomfortable. I went home and added Displayed Labor on facebook and they just made a post like ten minutes ago, and I thought to myself, oh yeah, I guess I have a crush on the human blockhead girl.


She is pretty cute, and that's probably the only reason I have a crush on her, because everything else I'm way to squeamish for.

Laurie Zimmer

As I mentioned earlier, I watched Assault on Precinct 13 the other day, and it was awesome, and the female lead was very pretty and kick ass. She was played by Laurie Zimmer.




When I was in high school, my friends and I would watch horror movies all the time. When we watched Friday The 13th Part 5, I thought Violet, the misunderstood punk chick, was totally cool, but I didn't want to say anything, because I was worried that my friends would think I was lame or weird or something. Violet was played by Tiffany Helm.


That's me singing.
