I am a man, and I should dress like a woman if I were not such a coward.

That is, I should revel in velvets, in silks and satins, in plumes and ruffles, in rich or delicate colors, in daring and dashing modes, in endless variety suited to my whim, to the weather or the occasion. It would be great fun. It would be an artistic gratification. But I don't dare.

In the days of knighthood, when men were really breve, they out-dressed the women; but in these degenerate days we do not venture our fancies beyond cravats. No man in modern times has dared to dress as he pleased, except Oscar Wilde, and we buried him with craven hisses.

We men rail at women's fashions, but in our hearts we know ourselves to be the slaves of fashion, of one dull, deadly, monotonous fashion, which we hate, but from which we are too cowardly to free ourselves.

-- Life magazine, February 1916

Oh my god - Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music is still about (back? updated?), and is no longer a Flash app!

I spent a stupid amount of time exploring this back in the dark times of the early 2000s.

I've been a Skinny Puppy fan since way back, and when this song came out I didn't like it because it was too different from their earlier works.

However, with significant numbers of years of hindsight, this is a great song. The video is also great: youtube.com/watch?v=9RLoP8hQ2_

It’s one of those long dark teatimes of the soul.

My mind just won’t start running, circular thinking is not fun, and generally leads to anxiety.

Oh well the beyond the bastards podcast is a distraction.

I think I really thought I could transition and not change all of the things I wanted in life.

Can't believe it's nearly the year 2020 which is undeniably The Future to me, and the only sci-fi technology that I have for real in my life is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
