Fes tried his best with a… certain part, but it is difficult to try and transpose a melody out of written work.
Anonymous asked: So... I have a question.. and.. I feel awkward about it, like... I've never asked anybody, even close friends... I'm a male, but... I feel... I don't know... more comfortable in a female mindset... than I would in a male mindset, even if I may act like a guy a lot. Um... that isn't strange, is it? Like.. I kinda freak out (to myself) over it, and I'm not sure what to do about it... Any suggestions? ._.
While I’m not an expert in this field, I do know that it isn’t “weird” at all, and you don’t have to freak out about it! Be who you are more comfortable being! Don’t be scared of being judged, as long as you’re happy in your own chosen mindset, that's what's important.
Unfortunately, we do live in a society that puts barriers in labels, and limit the way we think and act. And some people do like to judge. That’s probably why you feel awkward just talking about it. Which you shouldn’t! Especially not here :)
Hey anon, you are definitely not alone in feeling this way.
Brains are analogue and funny, not boring and digital. If they can be wired to be male or female, it follows that they may not wire up as you would expect.
Personally, I’m still figuring out my own mindset, but now that I’ve admitted that it doesn’t exactly fit either with male or female, I feel a bit less crazy.
In all human beings there is a great capacity to be whatever we want to be. We can adapt and overcome many challenges.
Be amazing. Or not. It’s up to you. :)
I agree :)
I’ve had the fortune to live among a family that wasn’t too much in the male vs female binary system, so my mindset never was too much in conflict with one or the other.
What is “feeling male” anyway? Lifting heavy weights? What’s “feeling female”? Putting on make-up?
We’re more than a binary system, we’re alive, and each of us so unique, and our lives rich in its own ways. Possibilities open up to you if you broaden your mind, not limit it into labels.
I will admit (thought I hemmed and hawwed back and forth if I should publicly here) that I am like this too.
I tend to self-identify as “mostly (cis)male” or “androngynous”, genderly speaking. Physically, I’m quite male looking. It’s a great disguise for me to be able to hide behind (and if you wanna talk about white/male privilege, it’s real easy to let people not assume otherwise).
But yeah, the trick is to find and associate people that are similar in their “non-conformity” with gender “norms”, and develop friendship and relationships in such circles. that way you have your own social and support group.
This helps for when the unaccepting world may become too much for you… at least that’s how I look at it.
In short, I am sure there are tons of people that don’t feel like they fit in the “gender-binary”, but might just not realize that there is so much more to it.
adambombtv asked: What are good "kick-off" MST3K episodes for someone who has never seen it?
Honestly, MST3K is not a big “storyline” kind of show that requires you to watch a lot of back-story or anything. Season 8 is the exception since the Sci-Fi Channel wanted them to have an ongoing storyline (and it’s a rather good one, IMHO), but just like with my reviews, if you’re in it more for the riffing, any episode will probably do.
Now personally I prefer Mike episodes over Joel episodes just because of the energy in the riffing (with the exception of late season 4/season 5 Joel, where there felt like a lot more energy was there), but there are a lot of good ones to pick. I’d recommend starting off with a movie that either sounds interesting or is at least something you’re vaguely familiar with just so you can get a feel for things.
I was all about the storylines, which is why one of my favorite episodes is the last Joel / first Mike one. I didn’t quite “get” MST3K, so I was always wanting to see the inbetween stuff and the invention exchanges.
