Without cheating I do have to say I don't recall.  I guess the data bank does get clogged sometimes! 


Thanks for the explanation of Half Speed Master Cyndee.  $20 was pricey back then.

I do know the City of Boston was called Tremontaine before being changed.  There is a major street named Tremont now that runs along Boston Common (city park).

Boston was Mother's Milk and Middle Earth are the two I remember.


Like Chicago was Chicago Transit Authority and before that The Next Big Thing.


Blue Oyster Cult originally used Soft White Underbelly


And I don't even want to tell you what Kiss considered using....oy...


2 other interesting things are what the names Steely Dan and 10cc actually mean. Not allowed by our rules to tell you here.

Just right ofr Friday - when I lived in Cleveland in the late 1970's every Friday at 6 PM Murray Saul on WMMS would play this version of Friday on my Mind (Trivia the original version of the song was done by The Easybeats that had Angus Young's older brother Malcolm who went on the form AC/DC) - the other cool thing WMMS did was at 2 PM Sunday morning they played Maggot Brain by Funkadelic....

Nerd/Geek rock on deck for today. Starting with Weezer. There'll also be some They Might be Giants, Nerf Herder, Moxy Fruvous, Man or Astroman?,  The Protomen, Cake, DEVO and more.

Link to post

oh I forgot - WMMS played the live version - and Murray Saul would rant for a while and end with " you gotta gotta gotta gotta gotttttttttttttaaaaaaaaa get down....(expletive).....

good choices - I especially love Weezer, They Might Be Giants and DEVo (Devo was right - our country is de-evolving)

Shay if you are from Cleveland do you remember a band called Rocket From The Tombs?

 They were part of the original punk bands that came out of Cleveland in the mid 70s.

So I'm 62 - does that mean I only love 70s/80s music? Absolutely not. My daughter accidentally introduced me to EDM a few years ago at a music festival in England. And having started clubbing at the age of 52, I thoroughly love modern club music. This is the latest music I'm into from K-391 and Alan Walker....

 Another cool band from the 60's.  Can't forget "Friday on my mind"  (Even my old man looks good!)

Glad you have joined us @Niamh... and glad to see you so opened minded about music - any style music done well deserves a listen in my books.

I was looking for a "like" button on here - does one exist? I like to be considered as non comformist - and that applies to many aspects of my life. I hate being classified or categorised. It winds me up!


Link to post

Don't know about the like button but non conformist sign me up. I once had a women where I work introduce me to a new customer and said [insert my male name here - uh] is a ...a.. peculiar. 


I thought - that's an interesting introduction - ok - I'll take that.


When I got job reviews - I always told people I considered my most important job was Comic Relief - because everyone took their jobs way too seriously...?

We don't have like buttons on TransPulse. The idea was floated. The Powers That Be said, "Thou shalt not." Instead we insist that, if you like something, please engage with the person who posted the thing you like and tell them so.

Ready for the weekend - just contacted several GT's - been waiting nearly 2 months ofr my health care - they say I'm on the waiting list - so I'm adding more to the mix and I like to do at least 1 thing every day that gets me closer to my outward woman I want to be.


Here is what popped into my mind that would be nice as I list more comics on ebay to augment my augmentation....


Looks like the CSN first album idea - of course it can't be because the house CSN posed by was torn down the week after they posed.....



Link to post

speaking about odd coincidences - a friend of mine who passed a few years ago was from Streetor, Illinois and that is where Alvin Lee moved to in the years before his passing - what are the odds.....

      @RachelSB I am here too unfortunately. I am turning 46 next week and have the George Costanza style, only much less and thinner hair Lol. It sucks. It actually was emotionally painful for me when I first started accepting myself as trans because I felt like a fraud and that I was not nor ever would be a real woman. I have since agreed with a message I received from @Jackie C. that it is fun trying new wigs and I have decided when the time comes I will choose to find the joy in my circumstances and I'm gonna rock whatever wig I get. You will too girl! ❤️

      I really like this feature. As soon as I figured this out, I have been following the Introductions Forum for a while so I see each time a new person introduces themself because I think it is important to welcome them and I love seeing new members and reading their stores. Thx mods for having this feature available to us! ❤️
    • Vanessa Michelle
      @Samantha2020thank you so much for joining the group and for being so open about your struggles and your journey ❤️ I can identify with much of it as well. I really felt for you as I read it and I am so proud of you for taking the steps you have and for joining TP. Please feel free to reach out to us and to post as you need to as it does help to chat with others in this process. We also have a Christian channel on here if you are interested in chatting with others in our faith community there. Many of us grew up in the Church and have, just like you found out through trial and error, that God doesn't change our orientation and loves us exactly as we are. I'm so glad you have joined us and I look forward to talking with you more. ❤️
    • Vanessa Michelle
      Awesome! @MisterJaxI love seeing new members get involved and connecting with others like this. Again, welcome! ❤️

      Puerto Rico has not been treated well by the rest of the U.S. and struggling people who have been kicked around by those who should help them start looking for others to blame for their struggles, we know the blame is on the U.S. agencies who withheld economic and direct aid, but they can't kick mainland Federal agencies around, so it is the weakest who are the whipping boys and girls.

      @CD RachelHi! It's https://community.qchristian.org/ QCF is an affirming Christian organization of LGBTQ+ people and has its own forums site. I was told about it by a friend of mine who has volunteered for them before and also Kathy Baldock's and Matthew Vines's work (both Christians). If you join, I am on there by the same user name as here. I would love to connect to more believers here or there. I think it helps us in the process to see and hear others who love Jesus and are not straight and who also know he loves us so ridiculously much too! ❤️

      (I know I'm nerding myself out with this answer, and most won't get the reference, but...) Major Kusonagi has a way via advanced prosthetic shell, but you have to live in a futuristic cyberpunk fiction. Upside though, is you also get invisibility. I'm on the waiting list.   In other news...I've now joined the trans-ranks and decided that face masks are seriously awesome ...I was just at the grocery store earlier this evening, I wasn't even trying to pass, but I still got accidentally correctly-gendered!!! I guess my long wavy hair (definitely my favorite feature right now by far...heeehee), zircon earrings, overweight "moobs", and face mask covering up most of my beard must've been enough to tip the scales. Considering I've been feeling rather self-doubty/impostor syndrome this week, that surprise just absolutely made my day!   I was in the checkout line, nobody behind me, just one guy ahead of me but he had already paid and was putting his bags in his cart. As the cashier (a really adorable college-aged young gal) was scanning my items, another employee came by to start bagging my items. I guess the bagger must've gotten confused and started trying to hand my bags to the previous customer because as I was going through my wallet, I heard the cashier girl say "Oh, those are his"...but then she quickly stopped and corrected herself..."Er, I mean hers".   "Hers"??!?!?   There was nobody else around she could've been talking about except me. My heart just about leapt out of my chest and I was just on cloud nine all the way out to the car, like I'd just won the lottery or something. Of course, all of a sudden I couldn't bring myself to use my voice any more than absolutely necessary. Instant voice dysphoria, but you know what, in this case, I'll take it!   @ElizabethStar OMG, congrats so much on all that validation!!! 🎉  And also on your birthday, too! 🍰   I may be technically "out" to my mom, but I still haven't felt like I'm at a point yet where I'd feel right asking her to switch pronouns for me. So I can imagine just how special getting a card like must be. So happy for you!!!  
    • ElizabethStar
      It's too late for coffee but.......   For some reason I was compelled to check the mail today. Not surprising there was a birthday card from my mother. I just figured it was the normal everyday card but it wasn't. The first word I read, in a big scripted font was "Daughter". Right there in front of me, a card from my mother, to her daughter. Honestly I didn't really know if my mother would ever truly accept me. Now...I do. I really wanted to cry (not in front of the wife) but I will cherish that card forever.   Before dinner I found myself out getting lottery tickets. The jackpot is somewhere around 6-700mil. The ATM is broken at the first store I went to (closest to my house) and won't let you pay for 'em with a debt card. A random customer piped-up and suggested where I could go. I headed out. The cashier there was extremely friendly, very helpful and kind of cute. When I was checking out he looked at me, in a sweet little voice, said "I know *****'s no your name, what is it? I just replied "Elizabeth". He then tells me what beautiful name I have. After he said that I did hear anything else. Holy crap! Did I just get hit on? or was he just flirting with me? When I told my wife she used what is becoming her standard reply, "This is what you asked for". What I asked for? Yeah...well, we'll talk about that at a later time. If it's what she has to do to settle with my transition so be it.   After dinner I got another happy surprise. For kicks I checked my work email. There was a message from HR. He asked me if I wanted my new insurance and benefits cards to have Elizabeth on them. We can do that? I'd love that. There have been a few things getting to me lately and I needed some love.

      Well I’m sitting here trying not to ugly cry. The calls to my Dad and brother went amazingly well. My brother said it didn’t bother him and he was glad I was taking steps to be happy. Dad almost immediately offered to help cover therapy and HRT med costs. Said he loved me and that would never change. He did say that he wouldn’t stop calling me his son, though given his age and the way he was raised I didn’t really expect him too.

      https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/transgender-man-fatally-shot-puerto-rico-n1254313   There have been seven killings of trans people just in Puerto Rico in the last 12 months.  May Samuel rest in peace and justice found for his killers.   Carolyn Marie

      Well my Endo got my message and was going to see about getting a hold of my Pharmacist. NO word yet. Hurry up and wait is the thing.   Still no word on the job front. No call back on the evidence specialist and no call for an interview for the analyst position. I am starting to get disheartened. I know I can't. I guess I will keep plugging along. On day at a time.   I am dreading going back to work tomorrow. I know half way though my shift my back will be killing me. Anyone know a way I can have  my brain put in the body of a 23yr old female but she has to be hot.   Kymmie
