I've lived w/ since I was 14–a chronic illness that affects cognition & means I'm always exhausted+in pain. Usually not v. active (except for boosting a lot of visual art & some nice social justice threads), tho every day I say goodnight before I got to bed.

Hello, & thank you so much to everyone who's decided to watch my posts, new friends & long-standing companions–especially since I've moved across the fediverse! I'm grateful for the time & space you've given me in your social media ecosystem. I hope to bring good & valuable things to your timeline.

If you see me post about anything you'd prefer to be given a content note, or if there's anything I'm doing you'd like me to do less or more of, please let me know & I'll do my best to improve!

Today is Wendy Carlos's 80th birthday!

She is a pioneer of electronic music, best known for composing the score of TRON (1982) and for her ground-breaking album, "Switched-On Bach" (1968.) In 1978, she came out publicly as a transgender woman, one of the few public figures to do so at the time.

If you enjoy electronic music today, you can thank Wendy Carlos!

Check out this BBC interview from '89:

Good afternoon friends! A grim grey start to the day so far, walking into bitter little icicle spikes of windblown rain. The streams have doubled their width, churning & roaring, climbing up their banks until they're near level w/the pathways.

A second successful mission around the reservoir, hopefully a once a week or so will help build up my stamina. Lingering slow malaise from travel & cold, but still I'm making progress.

may we treat each other & ourselves w/kindness & compassion today!

My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.

Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.

Feel free to boost. #trans
