TED talks are just monster truck rallies for nerds

just found this out thanks to the wonderful @TrannyOakley. Trans Lifeline does microgrants for legal document changes.

they have hit their limit for October but will have funds available again on November 1st. mark that on your calendar if that's the route you want to take!

my most important piece of advice: follow the state department's guidelines to the letter. Have your doctor use the shitty template on the website

I've been kind of silent in the last day but if you haven't got your passport with correct gender marker and you're in a position to do so, get started now. if you have any questions from someone who went through the process recently, please ask me. if you cant afford it (it's roughly 175 bucks) start crowdfunding. I'll share on all social media I use and give if I'm able.

UPDATED HALLOWEEN MOVIE RANKING

Halloween > Halloween 3: Season of the Witch > Halloween ('18) > Halloween 4 > Halloween 2 ( Rob zombie) > Halloween H2O > Halloween 2 > Halloween 5 > Halloween 6 > Halloween Resurrection > Halloween (Rob Zombie)

seeing David Gordon Green direct a Halloween movie is pretty great, but did you know that Danny McBride was part of the three person writing team on this?

the most interesting way, I think, that it subverts the first is it takes Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie Strode and does something similar to what Aliens does to Ripley. it takes a character who was a purely helpless victim before and makes them someone who decides to never be victimized again. The new Halloween doesnt shy away from the scars that came from her original trauma however. she feels like a fully formed person, both very smart and very fallible

feeling a tad better so I just want to say, I saw the new Halloween today and I LOVED it. this is a series I love to death and this is the first since maybe Halloween 4 that gets what made the first one so special, but it's also not a retread. it follows the same basic plot progression of the first but subverts it in interesting ways.

having a quiet meditative day to de-stress about things I can't control. left work after just 2 and a half hours. went to the movies (my fave thing to do, esp after a bad day). went grocery shopping and now I'm headed home so I can have dinner ready for my fiancee before she gets off work.

I'm really exhausted and nervy right now. if someone I dont know asks me or tells me something I might misread it and be rude. just apologizing in advance. come close a few times already today

Movie #22 of this holiest of months: Halloween ('18)
