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).....




Link to post



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

Link to post

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.....

      Hi @Harlyqynn and welcome It's beautiful to read the self acceptance and the relief that comes out of your words. Congratulations for your journey, I know it is even harder when things are not black and white. I'm the same in thinking that labels actually don't matter, and yet they are so powerful and bring such a relief when you can name your truth. It was the same for me, it took me a while to find the words "gendernonconforming trans man" (pretty much a conundrum, but here we are), but the freedom I felt when I found them was profoundly liberating.   Looking forward to "seeing" you around

      Hello @IseulK, This statement is a bit of a concern. I can certainly understand how important getting the surgery is to your wellbeing. But it in itself shouldn’t be the glue that is holding you all together. Life has a way of introducing mayhem when we least expect. You need a way to be able to cope with these difficulties without the prospect of losing all the gains you previously made.   You mentioned having been in recovery for these eating disorders. Have you by chance seen a therapist specializing in eating disorders, gender issues or perhaps both? If not, you might look into this as an option. I do hope you are able to get this upcoming surgery completed and these potential issues will not impact your life. I would just try to be as prepared as you can if things don’t go quite as you had hoped and planned. I wish you the best.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      Good evening everyone,   I am in a bit of a spot.  I had engaged with bulimia and later anorexia over a year ago, very deeply.  As I became more underweight, my gender dysphoria eased up some.  Not like I could enjoy it of course.  I was very excited when my family scheduled a date for top surgery.  However, my family has since then discovered my eating disorder.  I have been in recovery for two months and am now a healthy weight.  My thoughts around food and my body have significantly improved but my mom is still concerned about the surgery.  I still want to lose weight, but the surgery is more important to me.  I can't explain that to her.  I can't explain gender dysphoria.  She says that I just need to learn to love myself.  As I am.  As you all know, for some trans folks, that just isn't quite possible. If the surgery is cancelled, I know I'll relapse.  There would be no other way I could cope.  I have already tasted what it's like to have body that fits.  I can't explain all that.  I can, however, try to explain the benefits of a surgery.  Have any of you had any experiences regarding surgery and eating disorders?  Any comments would be most helpful.   Thank you!

      Welcome @Harlyqynn. It’s nice to have you with us. Most of us here have asked ourselves one or more of these questions of identity and/or sexual orientation since puberty and even earlier. It can take years to finally trust your own diagnosis enough to actively do anything about it. This describes me all too well.   I had two labels to work with (TS or TV) early in my youth (35 years ago). There just weren’t many back then so the labels didn’t do well to describe those within our community at all.  Even though labels have changed and many have been added over the years...it takes time to process and understand just who we are as individuals.   Labels aren’t as important to me as they once were but it does give me a sense that there are others out there like myself and that’s comforting. It may even help us to accept ourselves knowing that our identity is real and valid. If you were like me growing up, you may have thought you were alone in your identity especially without that label describing youself. Understanding that this isn’t the case any longer, helps us bridge that gap between knowing we are different from most but similar to some others out there.   You’ve come to a safe place to talk and share with others about these kind of topics and many of your upcoming adventures. I hope to read more about what you and your journey as you march forward on your path. I wish you the very best. Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      Thank you @Shay and @Willow Farmer.   I've been looking at groupons for electrologists, nothing even close. So Chicago it is. lol Oh well! It's been a while since I've been to Chicago. I want ti get my face cleared, I hate shaving.
    • Red_Lauren.
      Me too. Even though I can't make them look super girly now. Hopefully by the Christmas holidays I will be able to. I was planning on transitioning about this time next year, but that was also because I didn't plan on going to nail school till at least the fall this year, or March next year. That has been bumped up. As ill be done with school by the end of November.    If I finish school on time, and everything works out right. I'll be celebrating with my friends. I was going to do it in July for my birthday, but my birthday is in the middle of the week, and it feels weird celebrating a birthday days before or after, and December will have more meaning for many reasons. Hopefully I'll be doing nails for a living, I'll be living full time by then, and In December marks one year of hormones. So many more reasons to celebrate.

      Sorry Willow, It was all over the place for me for awhile as well. Praying it improves!   Hugs, Mike

      Have not experienced HRT, but I am on ADT for prostate cancer. I have heard many prostate cancer survivors complain about it, but when the T was gone, I realized I never want it flowing in my veins again! Looking forward to having E in a few months! I am feminizing without added estrogen and will be getting surgery in a little over a month.   Mike

      That would of course be a positive step.  Is it also a possibility to locate an experienced gender therapist (for example, before, during, after, or in place of your family counseling sessions)?  My spouse and I made it a point to jointly attend sessions with our gender therapist, and it was very helpful for both of us to learn from her long experience of working with couples working through gender issues.  It wasn't just about my spouse becoming better informed from an expert about gender concepts -- it also allowed me to better understand the dynamics of what my cisgender spouse was/is dealing with.  Family counselors often don't have direct experience with gender issues, which is why I'm mentioning this.   Astrid
    • Astrid
      Well said, @ValerieRun I remember having the exact same thoughts after getting underway with HRT.  Now I'm in my 16th month and still feel it's absolutely the right decision.  There's no way I would want to go back to how I felt before (there's nothing fun about being depressed and angry).     Astrid
    • KymmieL
      Well had a knock down drag out again. With my son. My wife finally talked to someone a little more liberal than her Christian friend.  Still had a go. I actually left work.  The wife is talking family  counseling.  I am all for it. And told her so.   I am back at work now.  Doing as well as can be expected.    I will post some more later.   Kymmie 
    • ElizabethStar
      if it's any consultation my wife has forbidden me to change in front her. I have a feeling she will never bend on that.
    • ValerieRun
      A few weeks into HRT and I just knew what I experienced and felt was a much MUCH better outcome than alternative. There is absolutely no way I would want or even consider going back of my own free will. Whatever future holds it will be another journey forward 🙂

      Although I have an MSW and was once an LGSW on track for LICSW, I abandoned that path. I still work at the same agency, just in a different role. I was placed at a community mental health clinic for my internship and they hired me after.
