Are old stories from oral traditions still fairy tales if there aren't any fairies?

There are no characters in this show who I don't love completely.

There are new episodes of The Tick! Hooray!!!!

"I don't want to offend you, but the food you cooked tastes like my barf," said my child at dinner tonight. And so began a long unwanted lesson about language and making effective word choices.

I'm giving a largely autobiographical talk about #trans people and noise #music on Sunday in Amsterdam. I'd like to be able to include the perspective and anecdotes of others, so I've put up a survey. http://www.berkeleynoise.com/celesteh/podcast/survey-trans-noise-musicians/

If you are interested in participating, please give it a look. You can choose to answer anonymously, or if you give me your name, I'll use it when quoting you.

I want to promote the contributions of fellow trans people to my genre and would appreciate help.

Thank so much!

I was going to play guitar and type and do productive stuff this afternoon, but it is cold and wet and miserable out and that's my perfect running weather.

"Javert did not say, ‘Let’s get a move on!’ He said, ‘Lessghehmwuhahn!’ No spelling can do justice to the way in which it was uttered: it was no longer human speech, it was an animal roar."

I'm really enjoying some of the wordplay in this translation of #LesMiserables. I'm guessing it's in the original, but the last translation I read sacrificed it to make the text read more smoothly.
