@cliffordbeshers “The clouds were spelling out a message in a language I couldn’t read.” Beautiful! Sounds like the beginning of a story or a chapter, or maybe the ending of a poem or the middle of a song.

@joshua Hope is great for the soul! I have a hard time finding much of it in the Bible between the talking snake parts and the apocalypse parts and the whole “Hi, My name is Matthew and I’m an abomination because I am a homosexual” parts.

But hey, if it brings you hope and peace, who am I to complain about that? It’d be a better world if religion wrought more hope and help than holy wars and hate.

Sorry for the intrusion. ❤️

@patrickrhone i’m just hoping interest/awareness doesn’t fade by November. But I also don’t understand why the hell POTUS isn’t pointing it out at every rally and in every advertisement and every executive order and every form letter response and every billboard and…it should be everywhere. But I guess once again the work of the DNC is to get done on the backs of the people. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Great playlist.

Also, is “Leader of the Pack” about involuntary vehicular manslaughter, or am I imaging things? Because it kinda just sounded like that girl caused a big ol’ car crash and then just kept on singin’….

Over the Rhine has been my favorite band for about 30 years now, give or take. This song, Given Road, from this gorgeous record, Love & Revelation, is one of the most haunting, stirring songs they’ve ever recorded.

I encourage you to listen.

Best savored at maximum volume.

I’m not as vocal here about Project 2025; I presume most people on micro.blog don’t support a Christofascist nation. But we all must still familiarize ourselves with the plan and tell everyone we know about it.

@pratik I am fortunate to have 3 remote, 2 on-site days each week. We all think the stupid legislature is going to get pissy about it and force us back in full time. But for now, I am fortunate. Good luck, I hope the recommendation is taken!

🎵 Mighty Joe Moon by Grant Lee Buffalo. I wish they’d remaster and re-release this magnificent album. “Drag” is my favorite song next to “Mockingbirds” (next to “Fuzzy” which is on another album entirely).

🏆 I thought the Substack iOS app was the worst app ever, but it turns out the Amazon Music app and its weird echo device compatibility and weirder caching issues win that designation.

So the lying liar used his equal airtime (and illusion of credibility) to call the other guy a liar, and half the country believes him because he said it like it was truth. Truth don’t matter when you’re a conman. Just slap the appearance of conviction onto hyperbole and they’ll believe it. That’s how conm... undamnedone.micro.blog

We aren’t exactly fans of yours either, buddy. Try doing some actual work on behalf of the people you’re supposed to be serving and representing instead of using taxpayer dollars to call for ethnic cleansing.

Someone in a LinkedIn group posted a link to the group (which is secular) to the Christian book they authored (which apparently is doing very well). I couldn’t help myself and left a Congratulatory comment with a screenshot from The Satanic Temple’s website. 😈🤘

🧠 Q: Is it rude to see two therapists? Or just expensive?

…Asking for myself.

My therapist helps me navigate Neurodivergence in a broad way. I love that and don’t want to lose it.

I also need someone who can get down to the real nitty gritty of coping with everyday issues.

@mbkriegh I can sorta relate. I did drag a few times, and was told I was pretty good. Nina West, before she was famous, invited me to be in her annual Halloween show. Like a fool, I declined because I knew I wouldn't be able to afford the clothes and make up (and drinks at that time in my life). I regret not going for it, but like you say, eyeshadow adventures are expensive!

@tekphloyd When I was a kid in school my dad forced me to turn off the tv and music to study or do homework, not realizing I was and am neurodivergent. Loud music while I work remotely today definitely helps me.

There are so many things my parents didn’t realize they were doing that caused harm. Of course there are also so many things that they did realize they were doing and that caused harm. Oh well.
