Thanks to @Abi I've been exploring all sorts of Electro Swing stuff. But in among the youtube search results I came across this... (Love it)

I loved the Eurythmics @Niamh. This is an outstanding cover. You give my song choices far too much credit. Thank you.

Madame Butterfly is a true story!

 

Butterfly,” the 1988 Pulitzer-winning drama based on the true story of the disgraced French diplomat and convicted spy — Bernard Boursicot — who, to the world's astonishment, learned at his trial that the Chinese woman who had been his secret lover for nearly 20 years was a man.

soooo smooth..."Take a Giant Step" by Taj Mahal(1969), and it's just got that cadence...

 

"come with me, your yesterday your yesterday behind"

"and take a giant step outside your mind"

This was written 50 years ago, but, but......

 

It's dark, it's stark, and disturbingly sounds a bit contemporary...

 

"poisoning their brainwashed minds"

This is a great song and a warning to be aware!

Especially for Jani and Cyndi - ever heard of capo-ing a bass?

No!  And she played a number of barred chords.  I suppose she could have reached many of those notes with a 5 string.

Amy Lee and Evanescence.  The band is releasing a new album called "The Bitter Truth," but they are doing it song by song. It's so nice to finally get brand new material.  Here is their first release from the new album "Use My Voice."  Speaking of voices, I love Amy's voice.

Here is an interesting thing I learned - I saw Brewer & Shipley years ago and they mentioned the JUSY BEFORE "One Toke Over the Line" was certified gold - the FCC found out what TOKE meant and banned the song. They mentioned that the song was the only song that could make the claim that it was covered by The Grateful Dead and Lawrence Welk... and here is the Welk version - check out Lawrence at the end talking about a new "gospel" song.... tee hee hee

LOL Mr Welk had no idea did he?

Pretty bad rendition of that song too.

Following @Shay's excellent selection this morning, I give you Indigo Girls

 

I remember first hearing these two women twenty five years ago. At the time I didn't know I was trans, but I knew, absolutely, that I wished I was Amy Ray.

 

"Here's what I find about compromise,

Don't do it if it hurts inside,

'cause, either way you're screwed, 

And eventually you find,

You may as well feel good,

You may as well have some pride."

@Shay - Great tune Heather, Love the organ solo in the long version, and the guitar tone is really cool in that track.

 

Here is another one from the era

 

Mott the Hoople (1971)

 

Home is where I want to be....

      This year my mental health is in slightly better shape than it was last year. My wife and I decided that we are going to decorate this year, we got the tree up (good first step), but still need to decorate it. I think this year we are going to make modifications for the most part, trying to see what family we can, when we can in small gatherings. If we can, we will meet in outside venues like the local Zoo does something called Wild Lights (it may have been mentioned in Secrets of the Zoo, I don't know). The whole Zoo gets decorated in lights and they put on light shows as well. So the plan is to try to see people around that venue as an example. There is also a cookie baking tradition that my wife does with a couple of her long time friends, I suggested this year they do it via Zoom and do a cookie exchange when we go to Zoo lights with them.   I do hope that everybody can find their thing that will be something to hold onto to make it through this rough time of year to be isolated. I understand that it is really difficult.

      At my work we normally only do some very basic decorating, but this year starting with Halloween we've gone all out. Fall/Halloween used to just be some sad foam pumpkins and other little odds and ends, but this year we did fake webs, a ton of paper cutouts all over the walls, a fake ghost, a scarecrow, etc. Thanksgiving was a ton of paper cutouts and printables. Now for Christmas/Hanukkah we have lots of snowflakes and fake trees all over the place in addition to our regular tree and menorahs. We also threw a Santa hat on our scarecrow. We're trying to make things as festive and fun as possible in this dark time and I think it helps people. Meanwhile at home we're considering not getting a tree this year. We normally pick up a live tree, but with everything going on outside and the fact we're not even sure where to put it now, we're thinking of just skipping it this year. It's really sad, but it's an unnecessary expense right now. I've had my co-workers ask about my Christmas shopping and I was a little thrown off. I know it's something people are still compelled to do, but I just hadn't even considered it this year. With the huge spike in case numbers and concern of possible furloughs if we shut down again, I've been avoiding spending any money for unnecessary things.  I see all the things starting for the holidays, but I just don't feel it this year. Even decorating at work is just sort of feels like I'm just going through the motions. We're supposed to decorate at home this weekend and I'm just not sure how into it I will be this year. Hopefully this is all just for this year and next year will be better for everyone.

      So, since this is my first wig, I know little about maintaining hair/wigs. I have been shaving my head for 20 years now and never had long hair. I am assuming the style it comes in will not maintain through a washing, which is critical to maintenance just like real hair. Anyone have any tips/advice?

      And why I can't do it anymore....   So lets start of about 8 years ago. I was watching TV and I was like "wow that girl is pretty" (I'm pretty sure it was like Zendaya or some Disney channel star.) Over the next year I would watch TV or go to school and develop these mini 7-yr old crushes on girls.   So I told my mom. I said something like "mom I dont think i like boys anymore, i mean they are cute but girls are cuter" And she was so confused so I told her how I was watching TV and all that stuff happened and she was like just like "oh" My mom's a lesbian and I came out to her as bi before she came out to me.    Time-skip to 5th grade I told her I was only into girls and she was supportive and about it (why wouldn't she be right? But that didn't last long...  When I got into the 6th grade, I realized I was non-binary. My sister who was in 7th grade at the time came out as genderfluid and pan. My mom tried to be accepting but she kept calling them by her birthname after being told their preferred name many times.    The bad part starts this past winter when I came out as ace and she said to me "you know you're going to get cheated on right?"  And then started making fun of me for being ace When I've been in situations with my gf that could have turned sexual and I felt uncomfortable and she knows Who tells their daughter who's in middle school that your going to be cheated on because you don't want sex?????   Right now I'm in 9th grade and I planned on coming out to my mom as NB but that's not happening  Her and my stepmom say the worst things about people who identify as they Literally yesterday they were talking about Elliot Page and Sam Smith and the part of their convo I heard went a little like this "So now every confused person is trans?" "Her career was flopping that's why she said that, she just needs more money" "Calling people they is wrong! It's grammatically incorrect!" "No babe it's about the personality" "So they are crazy? Like BPD or MPD?" "..." "So I'll call someone they if I see an doctors diagnosis"   Over the summer my sibling called my mom transphobic and she got all defensive saying that she wasn't but they have conversations like this all the time.  If they can't be comfortable/understand people who want to transition or pronouns are they/them I don't feel comfortable coming out to them as someone who identifies as she/he/them    Any thoughts? -squish

      Hi Sarah!  nice to meet you, and Welcome!  as you can see, we share some geographical (and emotional) commonality.  I know how hard it is to find Community here in Japan, but this Forum has been a great help to me and I hope it is for you also.  I think you will find many of us here who are unique individuals but also carry very common feelings and experiences.  Happy you found a gender therapist too!  I know how difficult that is here.  I was fortunate to also find a great therapist and it has been immensely beneficial.   Welcome again❣️  Deep breaths ... one step at a time

      So I am off for the next two days because I had a trip planned that was cancelled and thought I should still keep the days off. I am not quite sure what I am going to do with that time, because too much free time has proven in the past to be a dangerous thing for me. Work has been slow over the past week still, and I have a feeling won't pick up again until the new year which is giving my mind a lot of time to wander, which again, typically not a great thing for my mental health. It's amazing how right now, things are kind of stacked against mental health:     1.) Quarantine/COVID Restrictions     2.) Slow Work     3.) Time Off (Our company is use it or lose it)   I honestly haven't even been in the mood to mess with makeup, hair, or really get out of PJ's, which probably isn't the best thing. I've gotten dressed a few days to pick up food or coffee, but that is about it. I know I shouldn't be doing these kind of behaviors, I just can't seem to get myself motivated.   Today is therapy day, so we'll see what my therapist thinks of all this, I just know I am going to hear it that I am not doing enough to fight the mood driven behavior. Le sigh ... depression sucks.

      Ahhh..  that's so sweet, Gabriel.  I don't think I've ever been quoted before.    I'm happy that mantra means something to you.  Even the smallest of efforts in the right direction will create tremendous changes over time, just like the wind and water can carve away mountains.  When we look back we will see how far we have traveled. Wishing you a wonderful day🙏❣️

      Good morning everyone    nice day again although a chilly start. Sitting here drinking our morning coffee.  Third day in a row for doctors appointments then off until Monday then another one.  Yesterday’s doctor wanted me to come to Charleston to take an esophagram. After it was set up for Next Wednesday I told her I’d had one in 2018.  I sent her the results and she canceled the new one. The old one showed her what she was wanted to see apparently.   our dog came in to bed a couple times last night. The first time she figured out I was awake so she insisted on being rubbed.  The second time she decided she would leave me alone.  Laid with us a little then left.   y’all talk about cats, well our daughter brought one home once.  I was a nice cat.  Decided that I was it’s friend. It would come sleep with us and particularly on my face.  Unfortunately, I’m allergic to cat dander.  Wife and daughter both no your not you just don’t like cats.  I had to go to an allergist to prove it to them before they believed me.  She kept the cat, but not in our house anymore.     years later it ran off during a thunderstorm and they never saw it again.   Willow

      Morning all!   On my second cup of tea. Today a bit overwhelmed with stress at work, a very interesting prospect at my second job, trying to figure out what the heck I want on my gender identity journey and some health issues.   Well, as @KayC says, deep breath and one step at a time. Wishing you all a lovely day
