    my art thread
  1. Very upsetting about the Ariana Grande concert. I mostly go to concerts at the NY Philharmonic. They do some searches before you go into the auditorium, though they seem a bit perfunctory. I know they're really relying on the dogs that they have, which are trained to find weapons. I hope the dogs are as good as the handlers think they are Bright side of suicide bomber: at least the perp is dead.
  2. Congratulations Jenann on your daughter. Now I see someone congratulating Padlig2 on her daughter and I can't find the right post to figure that out, but congratulations! I hope you can see this video Great commentary on the state of the nation.
  3. Mother's Day Dinner with my ex and kids. My ex is making concessions to conservatism in fashion and was sensibly dressed in black and pearls -- no flounces, crenoline, or lace -- and no dinner mint colors. She (formerly he) even managed to find some sensible patent leather flats in a women's size 14 to fit her large feet, which strikes me as quite a coup. Forgot to get a photo, rats. My older child is now saying they are "non-binary." I'm thinking that my natural personality turned out to be a bit of a deterrent. I started pressuring "them" [singular they] to be a better daughter and go with me to Lord and Taylor and go shopping, because that's what moms and daughters do. They totally don't like this idea and tell me to ditch my gender stereotypes. Bit of a relief. I need to put on more pressure. I tried to get them to try on more of my clothes. They didn't like this. What else can I pressure them to do that men don't like to do?
  4. I just want to put in a plug for my friend Stoddy who is an Indie singer/songwriter/pianist. Here's his soundcloud
  5. Permit me to put in another plug for
  6. Jenann: You think all those people left due to politics? I thought Maggs was still occasionally posting. I know Brenda left due to politics. I remain terrified of what Trump is going to do this country. I still believe he is an emotionally unstable, corrupt, totalitarian, foreign agent and pedophile.
  7. Josh who was once so super modest and so super private has now posted a swimsuit photo on FB. A SWIMSUIT PHOTO!!! Sheesh. I'm stunned
  8. Pressing ashes into a vinyl record... Now that's something that would never have occurred to me
  9. I spent the last two days working on my music video. I'm still not sure if this director is capable of doing decent work, but fingers crossed.
  10. Jenann: glad to hear that you're still around. Are you still on twitter?
  11. Frustrating
  12. re: emotionally abusive relatives I find that some people only know how to interact by exchanging drama. They just don't know how to have a normal conversation. They'll always start out with a hook -- an invitation to exchange drama -- in the form of some kind of emotional manipulation. Then, if they succeed in dragging me into the drama, they can have a field day accusing me of all manner of whatnot. As soon as I hear that hook, I'm pulling away. I'll walk out of the room, hang up the phone, drive off, whatever it takes to pull out of that kind of toxic exchange. Then, of course, I'm mildly autistic. Did I mention that I got another blood test? The CA-125 (cancer antigen) went down in response to the Femara (hormone suppressant drug) that I'm taking. My doctor was very happy.
  13. So here's my blog about re-seeing The Comet
  14. I think the other performers left the space in the middle over the title of the show for Josh to autograph. Josh waited for most of the other performers to leave and then came out with Lucas. I can just imagine those who allege that he's gay having a field day with that.
  15. I went to Comet. There was an even called GrobCon2017. I didn't hear about it in time to go to the dinner, but I did hear about it in time to get the last seat on stage for the show and I got to have dinner with some other Grobies after the show. I did stand by the stage door and got LOTS of autographs. I gave Josh a copy of my new single and I asked him to save the community bulletin boards. He answered "I should." At dinner, Marie told me that she had spoken with Gabrielle, who is now the support person for these boards. She apparently told Marie that she thinks these boards are going away soon. I need to write a review of this second trip to the show. I do like the show.
