Oh, yeah, almost forgot. Melody Gardot is awesome too, "You Heart is as Black as Night" in particular.

For those that don't mind jazz.

How many out there are willing to admit they're old enough to remember a band called 'It's A Beautiful Day'? They recorded the hit 'White Bird'. Anyway, that's my listening fare for the day.

I have no idea if I'm old enough or not, but I've never heard of them.

They were together from '67-69'. You might see if they're on Youtube. They still have quite a following.

Be glad if you're not old enough and if you are then be glad you're still here!

That's a little before my time, but I do enjoy a lot of music from the same period.

Glad to hear it. There was so much good music done before all of the studio trickery and the formulaic hit machine stuff flooded the air waves. Heck, The Beatles ushered in the British Invasion and it was a wild ride clear to Woodstock. The 70's brought bands like Yes and the Allman Bros., etc. And to be honest, I loved to dance and thoroughly enjoyed the Disco scene for its short romp.

Thanks for your input!

With love,

Cissy

Well the typical "Rocky horro picture show" and "The Monster Mash" ofcourse.

But my all time favourite for today's date is "Freakin' at the Freaker's Ball" by Dr.Hook and the medicine show.

Fess up! Did you wear a burgundy leisure suit? I loved the platform shoes I had. Didn't get into disco really, but it was a great way for a kid to get laid! Giggle.

Not only old enough to remember It's A Beautiful Day, I worked in record stores starting in the late 70s while doing graduate work in college - the album still was selling enough to keep a couple of copies in stock at all times.

Never really made a huge hit but managed to make a place in music history by having been one of the last Bands to perform at Filmore West - their song White Bird was in the documentary film "Filmore".

I am still a fan of a group called Ten Wheel Drive, I love the heavy usage of the banjo in a heavy rock piece called 'Morning Much Better" - sort of a B, S and T group - jazz, rock, blues fusion.

Love the old stuff and a lot of the newer but I do feel that much like in movies - technology is used more often to replace artists than by artists.

Love ya,

Sally

Not burgundy. I had a winter white one as well as one in dark blue. YEECH! No platform shoes, either. I did own a precious pair of Capezios for dancing, however.

And I loved disco. Imagine getting all dressed up to get messed up in your best, including doing your hair, and then going to dance. Now this might involve dances that required practice and made it necessary to actually touch your partner.

After it caught on, much of the music became prefab like fast food with a beat

- sort of a B, S and T group - jazz, rock, blues fusion.

B, S & T! I saw them at Newport Jazz (my hometown!) back in '69. They were on the ticket for the night with 10 Years After, Jethro Tull, Jeff Beck (with lead singer Rod Stewart) and several jazz bands. I had a great seat and it cost me a whopping $7.95!

Wow Cissy, thanks for taking me back to a time a mere ten years later. Ticket prices were up to about twenty bucks. I think the last big show I saw back east was Speedway Jam. Then I traded off everything I owned including my Norton motorcycle, packed everything I had left including a quarter pound of pot, into a clapped out '69 Chevelle. I then drove off to make my life in Arizona. Hippies did that you know. I looked like a blond Cheech & Chong without the cheech...LOL.

Some times I think about that hippie kid. I wish I had estrogen back then, I would have been a love child... Oh, wait I was a love child and got the crap beat out of me more than once, from the cops for being one of those druggy freaks! Mmm,,, scratch that.... I did love my full long hair then, dudes would mistake as female from the back. I would turn around with my full beard and stick my tongue out at them... What a day! Giggle. Jody

Oh yeah.

Listening to "Don't give up" written by Peter Gabriel, perfomed as a Gregorian Chant.

Don't give up

'cos you have friends

You're not beaten yet

I know you can make it good

I went off to Goddard College in Vermont (when/where my avatar pic was taken) to study Drama, Literature, and hone my mating skills.

O, and I became a soaking, sopping wet alcoholic!

Love ya!

      Sorry for the latent response here I knew I had read it before but I could not for the life of me remember where I had read it. How do I start a blog? Where do I go to do this...
    • Lexi C
      Hey Mex We all do that. Jackie is right it dose  take a lot of confidence and courage to wake up and be happy with you.  I know that sounds like some stupid Hallmark bull, but 2 yr ago i was ready to end it. I get the bills the booze  and wrote out a will. I took the bills drank the booze. Had the craziest nightmare. The next day i did not die,, i piss off. But it gave me some hope. Today i still get depress but not as bad and i stop judge myself against other CIS. Just head down , work save,  continue to fight  medical for my surgeries and work out.   Be safe, be proud and be happy being you            
    • KayC
      Congratulations, Emily! on your commitment to self improvement and the opportunity for compassionate service to your fellow human beings. You've made a great choice.  Now, go and get it❣️
    • KayC
      That's a great post @Sandra6sandy9sand!  thank you for sharing your thoughts and connecting with what I am sure many of us are feeling. Regardless of our personal situations or differences, if somebody cannot see how interconnected we are by Covid and societies problems then they are truly lost.  This is actually a great opportunity for a fundamental change in America's "constitution" and direction (i.e., America's social conscious and morality ... not the actual Constitution... I agree it hasn't changed)   VOTE 2020❣️  
    • KayC
      That's a great attitude Leah, and that you have been able to settle into a comfortable place.   I see the value of therapy for myself (and others here I assume) as helping us to find our inner voice and start to live truly as we feel we should.  Its difficult to sometimes deal with the negative feelings as we may try to convince ourselves that the path to our journey should follow societies expectations. I hate labels, I hate the idea that we are somehow required to declare/come out, but I also know that's the reality that society places on us. YES!  I agree❣️❣️❣️

      My daughter is a little shy about her transition. First of all, after nearly 5 months, she looks like a girl and hard to distinguish otherwise, especially at her young age. How did it workout for you or your daughter? School is not going to start right away in person, however it will be online and he name is very feminine. The school faculty has been updated about her new status, but the students don't know as of yet. I appreciate you sharing your experiences so I can better prepare her. 
    • HollyNoel
      OK so here might be a fun question for everyone.   After you started presenting as either a woman or man, have you ever either dated someone you knew, like a guy friend or a girl friend, or have you been hit on buy someone you knew? I would love to know if transitioning changed the friend dynamic or made old friends think differently about you. You don't have to respond and you don't have to get specific with any details. I'm just curious if old friends see you as a completely different person after your transition.
    • TransMex
      I compare the way I look with how other women look a lot. That's practically all I do all day at this point. I want to look like them.
    • HollyNoel
      Bri2020, I wish you luck, just know that what ever happens, you have us to get support from.. Did you like the duct tape hair removal thing.. lol
    • HollyNoel
      I had my first gender therapy session last Tuesday. I told her thatb I've always known that I was a girl fron the youngest age and that I wished I could have switched places with my sister. I told her that when I finally told my mom I felt like a giant crushing weight had been lifted off my chest. At this point in my life I feel I'm ready to have the surgery but I know they want to make sure I'm sure thats what I really want. I feel that that is the best course of action. I may feel I'm ready but I haven't even lived as a woman yet. Though I still feel I'm ready. I wont regret having it. Been a dream of mine since I was 12.
    • Bri2020
      I'm in the hair removal process anyways so.....     Thanks everyone for your thoughts. Lots to think about.
    • Jani
      Good for you!  👏  Thanks for getting involved. 
    • Jani
      Some do not like that the WPATH protocols and look at them as gatekeeping.  But the time required to get approval is done to ensure you are ready and fully understand the change.  As I told my therapist, I knew it would only change what's below my belt and that only I would know.  (unlike electrolysis or body changes from HRT).  Its doesn't change how you react to others, or any other "issues" one might have.  Those that regret surgery IMO are those who have not prepared and been honest with themselves.  Obviously living as a woman has its good and bad sides.  After all we live in a male dominated society.  That said, I don't believe anyone here has any regrets!  I certainly don't.
    • HollyNoel
      When I'm ready to come out on social media I'm just going to rip that duct tape right off and who ever decides they don't want to be around me or talk to me then I'm just going to let them go. There was only one person I was scared to tell and that was bmy mom, everyone else can just go lick a pickle! I can't keep caring about what people think of me. If they cared then they would be supportive and not judge me because of who I am on the outside. I'm still me, the wrapper doesn't change the candy bar. It's still the same candy on the inside. So for me at least, when it comes to social media, I'm just going to put it out there and whatever hair comes off with that sticky duct tape will have to just go.
