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...?

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!



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.....

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.....

What a great slow rocker by Tom Petty......


I love the way they raise chords (voicing lift) the bass goes up an octave, creates a nice effect

Link to post

yes - I am in love with the entire FEEL of the song - a buried treasure I can't wait to play....


By the way - my lead player is such a nit picker when it comes to sounds and styles - I'm sure he willemulate the Leslie to a T in NO MATTER WHAt. You should hear his sound on NORWEGIAN WOOD

@Dinaki that is a wonderful collaboration!  Thank you for sharing it. 


@Cyndee That is a super example of dreams lost and the reality of it.  

"I said babe you look delicious
And you're standing very close
But like this is Lower Broadway
And you're talking to a ghost"

@Dinaki I missed the Freddie Mercury.cool. I saw a Carol Burnett show where she sang Send in the Clowns. My wide thought Joni Mitchell wrote it. I said no. Turns out Stephen Sondheim wrote it. Said freddie did a version. Can't wait to get to my pc to hear it.

Link to post

Bummer - the Freddie Mercury version of Send in the Clowns is instrumental....


So I guess my second choice for listing to today.... let's put on a little Supertramp... my personal favorite of theirs...

@Shay - wonderful tune. They have so many. Used to play along on harmonica to "Long way home", great memories...

I still am the harp player on our Beatles and Petty songs requiring it. It is a struggle sometimes to sing, play bass, play harp on YOU DON'T KNOW HOW IT FEELS, MARY JANE'S LAST DANCE, I SHOULD HAVE KNOW BETTER, LOSER and LOVE ME DO (this one I have to fake the notes on lead section as they used a different key harp in the studio and I tried to pick up the right key for theat part but it was way too much effort for so little payback).


And my other favorite Supertramp song ... Bloody Well Right....

Another great band.  We saw them in August '83 in Worcester, MA before Roger Hodgson left.  They spoke about it on stage.  

Link to post

never saw them - but it was sad they couldn't work things out because every band needs more than one talented writer and voice....

as promised - here are photos of Steely Dan at the University of Toledo 1972 (I think)

      @Heather Nicole thanks. Funny thing about that picture, I as trying to post it with the caption getting ready to go to the beach.  I had changed out of my church dress and I changed my iv because of the wind.   for some reason. Am concentrating so much on getting the picture framed I forget to smile when taking a selfie.     Well, today was Monday.  I had blood work done for my endocrinologist.  The tech got a good vessel, filled the first of three quickly.  I made the mistake of saying she got a good one.  When she switched to the second vial nothing!   she had to switch arms and get three more.  At least that’s done.   Willow

      HI all, I think 76 is another "unusual" age to start HRT, but that's me. Can't do much about it. I've been on E. for about two weeks. Haven't yet sprouted beautiful B cups, but I'm hoping....   Here's my strategy for living in the "reality/non-reality/hyper-reality" continuum, so far: I'm "transitioning at my own pace, going as far as feels right, and savoring each day, One Day at a Time."   This is the way I'm coping with bizzaro emotions. If I tell myself I'm going as far as ___, total transition? GCS? Boob job? FFS? throat shave? my inner voices [the "Committee"] starts reciting all the bad things I've ever thought about the whole idea, and worrying about all the bad things others will tell me too. But if I say to myself, "Ok, so stop," a wave rolls over me, saying, "Oh hell no. I like how I'm feeling." So rather than pressuring myself to hurry up and get to some feminization "goal," I'm saying to myself, "Maybe I'll call it all off tomorrow, but I'm not going to do that today. I like the way I feel." That's how ODAT works. ~~Hugs, everybody, Lee~~

      OMG, thank you all for the squirrel pics and stories!  Jandi, I was laughing out loud with that video.  Absolutely amazing and charming antics and I was so impressed with Mark Rober's skills and ingenuity.   My feeder also has a dome, and I took away most the squirrel's launch points, but they now launch from a tree about 6 ft. away, directly onto the platform base.  I've also tried commercial chemical sprays, but there are too many approaches to the back yard and they just jump over or around where I put the stuff.  So its basically get rid of the feeder or put up with the squirrels.        Carolyn Marie

      I've read your post. I just want to mention that I think your posts here are always interesting and your input here is really appreciated. It's great to move on if it's something that sounds right to you. I know that myself I will always concider myself trans. mainly because I suffered from having the impression that I was alone like this when I was young. I *WANT* my kids friends and people at work to see and know that I'm trans and happy.   Good luck for everything to come, you will always find interested ears and empathic hearts here
    • Dana Michelle
      It seems like it is unusual to start at that age. It seems like most people transitioning start either under age 25 or over 50.

      I never had a sweet tooth. Now I'm like a kid for anything sugary and strawberry flavoured. My taste for beer gave way to red wine, then to strawberry and lime cider, which for some reason seems to amuse my friends at the pub!   Also, I never used to like baked beans very much, now I absolutely love them. Milder varieties of curry are much tastier to me now as well. I'm not sure if my tastebuds are more sensitive or just different.

      Shay, ours wasn't that talented.  Just a single hole initially.  I kept thinking he should have been more creative.

      Hi Jack.  Welcome to Trans Pulse.  It is so great to meet you.
    • Sally Stone
      Hi Anna, I hope you can find the answers you are looking for.  In the meantime, I have to tell you that the fact you are trying to educate yourself for your spouse's benefit says what an amazing person you are.  Welcome to Trans Pulse.

      We have one that just ate through the husk of a pumpkin and then proceeded to eat all of the meat from the inside.  When he was finished, our pumpkin looked like a cyclops with one big eye.  The squirrel has been back to the scene of the crime every day to take more and more of the pumpkin away.  No doubt he is stocking up for a long-cold winter.

      Good afternoon,   It's a little late for coffee for me, but still nice to sit and gab for a minute. Fairly productive weekend, my mom played middle man between her side of the family that we weren't sure about and came out for me. It turned out well, they said they would still love and try to respect me, they may fumble with some things they did say, which I don't expect perfection. I still need to take care of two of my aunts on my dad's side and then I think I am done for the family that is going to be told directly at least.   I just got done scheduling my support groups and decided I am going to try to do a socially distanced Monopoly game. It is going to be done via Zoom, and I think it will be interesting if nothing else (I already gave full disclosure to anybody who signs up this is an experiment). I also think I found a cute outfit I am going to wear tomorrow to my trans support meeting, though it is still digitally held, I like to feel cute and look cute. I guess today just has been a nice day.

      Not completely outside the realm of possibility. My therapist told me about a trans friend who it turns out was actually intersex. They discovered a uterus and ovaries when they went in for the vaginoplasty and just hooked everything up more-or-less correctly. She had her first period at forty.   As for the doctor's office conundrum, I come clean right away. It's legal to refuse me service for being trans where I live so one of my first questions with a new doctor is, "I'm trans, is that going to be a problem?"   Hugs!

      I had a terrible few days and a good experience because of it.  I developed an extremely painful thrombosed hemorrhoid that made me miserable since Friday night. I got to see a surgeon today just as the pain started to become bearable.  While there, I was addressed as Bri by everyone and when the nurse was asking me questions asked when my last period was.  It took me by complete surprise and I was trying to figure out the right answer and she was like, has it been that long?  Too which my humor finally caught on and I  responded, I think you could say that.....and finally let her know I was trans so yea, it's been a minute". she laughed and said- oh, I had no idea.  Almost made the rest of the visit OK.  -Almost. For those of you that have experienced being treated as a cis woman in the Dr's office do you come clean or how do you respond?
