Hi. I'm a college professor in theatre and gender studies. This is primarily the account for my music project These Liminal Days. Still, I will post about a variety of topics. Started hrt in December 2021 at the age of 51. She/her.

“ 'In Wednesday’s hearing, president Shafik repeatedly claimed that she was inaugurating a new era at Columbia. Her actions thus far suggest that this era will be one of repressed speech, political restrictions on academic inquiry, and punitive discipline against the university’s own students and faculty.’ ”

@StillIRise1963 so many university admins are so very welcoming of fascist power structures. And, for the most part, faculty are either too fearful and too focused on their subjects and research to effectively challenge their administrators.

I wish there were cooperative colleges.

Man, why does everything happen at the worst possible time, all together? I'm facing my biggest financial crisis in a decade, might have to sell the house we JUST moved to and move back across the country less than 6 months later for different, non financial reasons, can't find a job AND now my computer is dying...

It's been a rough few months. Not sure when, or if, it's getting better.

@etherdiver damn! Best wishes.

    I really do have a soft spot for 80s heavy metal like Iron Maiden and Dio. I don’t listen to it very often, but occasionally the mood strikes.

    There is something about it that feels grandiose, almost naive, and a bit playful compared to the dark assault that much of the genre seems to be these days (though tbh I don’t really have a wide knowledge of contemporary metal).

    It’s also partly nostalgia and a connection to my teen years.

    Over the past couple of years my interest in new computer tech has waned considerably and I increasingly find people who champion the new this and the new that as anything but ways to make a handful of people rich as they deplete our planets resources to be speaking an alien language. Yes, I use a computer to make music and I appreciate some of the tools they provide, but overall I just can’t get excited about it when the planet is burning and fascists want to kill me.

    I haven’t read Han Solo at Star’s End in something like forty years. Not sure I’ll make it through but am curious about it.

    Corrina Repp: Island

    This is an album and an artist that deserves way more attention and accolades.

    Rough night.

    Wish I had people I could turn to in my local area when the person I moved to Little Rock for is unavailable to me during I time I need some care and support.

    - – Crocodiles (1980). Like Joy Division, the Bunnymen boiled punk fury and affinities with pop's madder prophets (Bowie, Iggy, Jim Morrison) into music that bristled against conformity. "Do it Clean" suggests anything but, while "Stars are Stars" showcases Ian McCulloch's theatrical yowl and "Rescue" forges a new blues for Thatcher's England. Rumours that "Echo" was a drum machine are irrelevant against this organic, very human music.

    @Great_Albums I think you have just turned my day into a journey through their discography. 🙂

    @ottaross I quite liked that movie a lot. I found it through a review written by someone I knew in high school https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/christmas-again-2015

    @ryanhoulihan and you could just steal parts of other movies for the script. Maybe lift sections of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels?

    Hey @AlasdairStuart - don't know if you have seen this, but I bet you could easily help spread word over there for getting people to support trans representation in Doctor Who

    I know it shouldn’t be held to fact. But #ForAllMankind really underestimates the affects of space on the human body.

    I'm not much into #XmasMusic, but when I do need to listen to it I will always reach for the terrific stations on @somafm such as Jolly Ol' Soul, Christmas Lounge, or Xmas in Frisco.
