At least the first hit on your name isn't a list of registered sex-offenders

I had no idea, so I googled it. I think what you meant to say is: "You won't know who comes up first UNLESS you live under a rock"

So... I decided to "come out" to everyone I know on Facebook finally lol.

Via this metaphoric, yet informational blog post on muh new tumblr. Check it out if you are wondering about any of the random stuff I'm going through... I know I already told everyone here pretty much, but this goes into a good bit more detail :)

As long as you don't fall into the realm of the "I MUST GET ALL OF THE ATTENTIONS CAUSE I MUST LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT I'M DIFFERENT AND THEY SHOULD CHANGE EVERY SINGLE ASPECT OF THEIR LIVES FOR ONLY ME" type person then you should be just fine. I'm not saying you are, but i've come into contact with similar things (mostly in gay men) to that caps in quotes thing. It feels less like they want to just be another human being with a semi-normal life, instead that they need and are entitled to all of everyones attention simply because they are different/taboo.

Sorry if i rambled on... I do hope the best for you man-a-woman-a-dude.

I'm really excited for you! I read your blog post and I really enjoyed the way you related your life to a crossfade. That's awesome. My entire life I have faced hormone problems and chemical imbalances, summarized to what doctors call "BPD". I know that I can not possible relate to your specefic situation, although I think we all can easily sit down, brew up a cup of peppermint mocha, and talk about where we really are on that crossfade through life. Sure, sometimes people have longer crossfades because the intro is long and we have to keep throwing in filters, bitcrushing, and phasing until we finally manage to comfortably get it to the middle.Sooner or later, however, as long as you keep twisting knobs and pushing buttons, your going to figure out how to comfortably mix to the very end and figure things out to a nice, steady beat.

When I first met you up at Springfield, I was pretty bummed that I had to leave. I felt some sort of connection, even though we had only talked off and on for the past few months. It's one of those really weird things that people call "energy" or some shit lol. All I know is that I thought you were a pretty awesome dude, chick, whatever, and I wanted to keep partying with yah. Hopefully we can kick it again next month sometime. It'd be awesome to eat at Ziggies or whatever that place was called lulz.

Congrats on opening up to everyone on Facebook... and heres the joke... get ready for it...

GEE, THAT SURE TAKES BALLS.

hurhurhurhur.

So seriously, good luck to you! Maybe youll examine my house for mold one day over the rainbow. :p

Coming out
*slow clap*
Nicely done. Though you said some people already know, it's still a pretty big deal that you're open about this, and I'm sure it took some guts. :)

Names
I took my name a long time ago, I didn't have an e-mail and I quickly needed one to send a file to my friend; I went on Yahoo to make an account, and at the time Kalmah's song "Hades" was playing on my playlist. At first I appended "0013" to the end because I liked the number 13, which was taken. After using that here as well, I eventually got rid of the numbers. Pretty simple.

Metal/Skin corrosion

So I bought this necklace/pendant type thing at a night market while on holiday, and it was originally silver in colour. After having worn it around my neck for about a week or so, some of it has sort of corroded to this browny, coppery colour. It was pretty cheap so I'm not too fussed, but I wonder if anyone could tell me what kind of metal it might be and what is making it happen?

It's funny because today I had an science test about this subject (which was ridiciously easy).

If you're sure that it is silver, it has most likely reacted with oxigen to silveroxide, which can give that kind of color. You can get it off by putting the necklace in water that has some soda in it (not the Kenan & Kel kind of soda, but REAL soda), together with a smaal chuck of aluminum foil.

If that didn't work....it's not silver. ;)

I very much doubt that it is silver, but I'll give that a try and see what happens.

Yeah I've had a few do that - put it in a vinegar/baking soda solution and it should help.

Since the WIP thread seems to have disappeared, would anyone mind giving me some advice on where to take this piece? I am thinking about inserting a quiet passage either before the A theme is repeated or after it as a bridge into a finale... thoughts?

Lol... I'm not asking you to tell me if you like it, nor am I trying to promote my work *cough*; I'm asking you to tell me how to write more of it. :3

Thanks for digging that up. I forgot to try searching (wow, I know, I'm stupid today... stupid tests making me loose my brain to memorizing a pile of useless facts for all of one day).
