Podcasting

Well I never thought I would be doing some form of broadcasting again. I love the medium there is just something to me that is magical. A place where you can talk to an audience of certain subjects that you find important. I love that you and store up the casts and schedule them to be out at a later date when giving you a chance to other things. As building the podcast I have been noticing that I desire a more professional output of the tracks. Though at this time I am not going to be investing $$ into something that is not returning the investment. I already do that with this blog and the Human-Roadshow.

Patreon so far is a joy to work with. At first I was a bit scared in setting it as there is so much to do it get it all done. Lucky for me their interface is a real joy to use. I have looked at others but keep coming back to Patreon. There are going to be a few changes with the blog and the content that is being created. So please keep tuning in as I will be trying to post twice a week if not more. I will also be setting up a schedule of what is being posted on various platforms for everyone to see.

Did you know that this week I have been creating content on my podcasts almost everyday. I have even put the first chapter of my new book up 3 days ahead of schedule. Worked on the Human-Roadshow site as well. I am even working on the Twitch account to get that up and running. In the next podcast I will be talking about making gold inside of Guildwars 2 which can be a bit of a struggle unless you know how to play the Auction house game. Which for me is not something I can get my head around. But I have a few tips that will help new users and help those who are already in the game to earn a few gold coins.

Then I am working on a show about giving you the Transcommunity the power to stand your ground in a discussion. Now I am not saying that you can win the discussion but you can avoid sounding like the idiot in it.

I am working on my Twitch account to play a game with my children for the first show being Quake Arena and toss my kiddos in to the fun of that old game. I will give you information on that in the coming days.

Here on the blog well I am going to be posting such topics as….Well you are just going to have to keep and eye on the blog…I cannot give it all away.

Until we talk next time, have a wonderful day.

In shocking news…

Really I don’t think it is all that shocking. Here recently in the US, ANOTHER transwoman was killed. What makes this one so shocking is a number of reasons. So lets sit down and review them.

First, this young woman was attacked by a MOB! She then did what was right after spending time in the Hospital (where she could not afford the health care). She made a report to the police. Only weeks later to be found DEAD. The police at the time of the murder said we will look into the two being linked. Yeah she was Black and Trans nothing was going to be done, i.e. the cold hard truth.

Second, here a few days ago the same police said that they don’t believe that they were linked. Wait so you by that statement have ended the review and looking into her bashing? Or by what you are saying her death that even blind Freddy could see the two were linked. Was not worth your time? Was it because she was Black or was it because she was Trans or was it both?

Third, in the US in the last few months they have been trying to use and abuse women’s bodies with challenges to the Roe vs. Wade. Which in case you did not know is about abortion. How are these two things linked. Well in the issue of these cases they are saying that life begins at heart beat and we must save that life. The hypocrisy of the religious right is really pissing me off. It is even starting to pour out here in Australia with the little snowflakes wanting religious protections. Well, blow me down for years the religious right has attacked the LGBT communities around the globe. But now that a younger generation is growing up and saying WTF you guys are doing? You little snowflakes want protections. This is really all a bit rich. 99% of these people screaming for this are well off, older 50+, supporters of the right side of politics and don’t care really about what they are doing to this world. Think about it…

In fact the above two issues are a bit in the face. But the half of society that is sick of this shit is not speaking up. Then here a couple of days ago a song was sung on The Voice here in Australia. While I love this song for its brutal truth. I think it was lost on those who were listening. The song was Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine. While I must say the guy killed it, people just don’t really understand the truth of the lyrics even though they are so very simple. Take the time and listen to both versions. First I will give you the one from The Voice Australia (the guys got balls).

Ignore the overpaid judges who most have never really had the struggle of life. Respect for the hard knocks that Boy George has endured.

Next just so you can hear why what this guy did is so important but sad that so many did not understand what was being sung. I am going to give you a chance to listen to the whole song. Thank you Rage against the machine for saying what needs to be said.

If you are missing the point of the video. You need to get out and see what is going on.

Fourth, I want you to listen to this over privileged white religious woman. Who as a snowflake had to ask about religious freedoms. Then link the Liberal government who just won to saying prayers and fasting did it for them.

So now you are asking where is my point in all this. Well is it very simple I loathe these drop kicks of humanity who out one side of their mouths say one thing for example Abortion is wrong and we need to care about that life. While their actions over the years say something completely different. Where was the protect for the 18 transwomen in the US that were killed in 2018? Where was the protection for the 5 who were killed in the US so far in 2019? Where is the caring about the school shootings in the US and hundreds of children have been killed? Which I saw a post on someones Facebook from the US saying our thoughts and prayers are with New Zealand after a Mosque was attacked and people were killed, how fucking rich of an American to say that. So where have your prayers taken you? New Zealanders did not rest on Prayers they got off their asses and banned the fucking weapons of war to the general public. Same damn thing Australia did after we lost lives to a monster. But the gun toting America continues to think that guns is the way to save lives as more and more die. Where did your religious freedom take you?

I think I echo so many in the world who are saying enough is enough. I wish for once that these snowflakes who are demanding religious freedoms would do something to save lives. Would do something to make the world a better place without creating MORE hatred. Would hold the police accountable for all the uncalled for shootings and profiling that they are doing. Would care about all the children that the governments are putting into concentration camps (Yeah, that one might be a hard one to swallow on your knees as you do nothing). I am sick of seeing the trans community with a target on our back because you are scared of us being treated equally (the bathroom bullshit). I am tired of seeing all the school shootings in the US as you sit and pray for the loss of life but yet you do NOTHING! I am tried of worrying that my Daughters need to learn about self protection because the police that are being hired are substandard gun toting sociopaths or they are a dollar short of doing their jobs. I am concerned that here in Australia we are seeing more of an influx of America ideologies. Australia does not need to be a little America, it really is time for Australia to tell the US to piss off and start thinking on its own again. This does not mean we shut the doors on our allies. Blows my mind in the last 10 years this is getting out of control. So who’s fault is it?

Well look in the mirror! Then ask yourself do you want more religious freedoms? Do you think that what is going on in America is going to be fixed with thoughts and prayers? Do you think an Elections was won because you fasted and prayed? (I am sorry but that shit is fucked, it has not saved hundreds of children’s lives, so you think it got someone elected?). If you think that because a person is not white they are not as good as you? If you think that it is okay to be white is a good thing to say. Then if that was not enough, if you think that climate change does not impact you. Then YES you are the problem and no amount of religious freedom is going to fix a thing. Shit this stuff is getting old and I am tried of all these snowflakes who seem to come from 2 generations (Baby Boomers and the Flower children (who turned out to do anything but love and peace)). To be honest I think when these two groups die off the world might be in a better place (with a few exceptions there have been some of both of those generations who are good salt). But then we have Gen X who talked a lot of shit and still do nothing followed by Gen Y who are not doing much as well. I hope the generation that is in their 10-20’s can fix this shit or we (mostly they) are fucked. That scares me and I worry about my children.

Well I know I had a bit of a rant there but holy shit this stuff is getting old and someone needs to tell the cold hard truth.

Changes had to be made.

Well now for years I have been funding this site all on my own and trying to find ways to employ myself. It has gotten to a full time job writing and ghost writing and public speaking and blogging and now adding a podcast to the mix. There is a lot of money going out and not much coming back in so after talking to a few people smarter than myself they suggested I start to Monetize my approach in social media.
There was an attempt to create something about a year ago and that did not really pan out as there is no money for social enterprises that don’t make money in the first place and were not designed to. Even getting grants was a nightmare.

So here is what is taking place….
As of Today Sunday the 27th my Patreon site has gone live.

So what does this mean for the blog. Well I am going to be adding new content as well as updating a few things for the blog. There will be blog only content that cannot be found on my podcast which can be found on…. (This list is huge)

But in saying that there will be content that is only on this blog. I am also going to be adding content on the Podcast that will not be on here. I also understand that the content is free for anyone to read or listen to. So your question might be, Why should I? Well it is very simple I want to be a part of the productive society. If I am not able to find stable employment I am going to make it. I kindly ask that you take a look at the sponsor fees I am asking for. If you would like to continue to enjoy my efforts please spare a dime or two as that will help keep the lights on. I have also chosen to change the way I am publishing as finding a publisher who will work with me has been less that enjoyable. (I do have a keyboard face after dealing with a few of them.)

My site called Human-Roadshow as I have said in the past post will be where I will be publishing my written work. If you have some spare time hope on over and have a look.

I am also pointing out that a lot of this is in the construction stages and it will take time to iron out a few bumps. With your support I think you are going to enjoy where this road is taking us. It will be my pleasure once again to have you along for the journey. Until we speak again, thank you.


Time to expand

We all should know that the only thing in life that is constant is change. I love this blog and sometimes I find it very hard to write. Even my dyslexia can play issues and I get very upset about not being able to explain in written form. So, I have started a PODCAST. I have just finished the about me part and will be talking about several issues from being Trans to being an avid computer gamer. There will be some very deep and meaningful conversations. Some will be hard to address as it is hard to hear. But in the end this is my life my journey. I hope that if you are bored have some time to relax and join me on my journey.

You can’t ask that…

I have been watching a wonderful show called You can’t ask that <(Link). A week or so ago an episode was aired about Intersexed. I hear all the time people saying that there are only two genders. It really is a narrow point of view. A view that is mainly driven by those who are Religious or Personal dislike. Personal dislike I can really understand (I don’t agree with) at least these people do not refuse that science has proven there are more (well, some might). I am always confused by people who are willing to trust science in so many ways is right but not when it comes to Gender. We are seeing now that science and vaccines save lives (get your kids vaxed, don’t be a monster).

As I watched the episode about Intersexed (no I am not that I know of, really not worried about it). But there was a part about being alone growing up that hit me very hard. It is so sad and lonely that when you are so different that even those who are different in school think you are different. Think about what I just wrote, think about those who are the Nerds, Geeks, Disabled, Emo’s and this list goes on and on. Now they look at those who were and are LGBTIQA….+ and say we are “Different”. Now think what it is like to want to blend in but you can’t. This continues as an adult it never goes away, changes yes but never ends.

Even to this day I get looks and hear whispers. People so scared to just talk to me and get to know me. I am not the only one, those who are the Transgender and Intersexed get this all the time. It is not about sex or who we love. It is about just Being. Yeah we look different, we talk different, and we act different. But we still bleed red, we want only the best for our children (if we have some), we want to be loved, we still want to be a part of this world, and we still want to play an active role. But people need to learn that the world cannot keep picking and choosing what science to believe in. That a 3000-year-old book knows more than what our eyes tell us. Religions books do not tell us about computers, phones, cars, vaccines, planes, gravity, air, and so much more. But science did and does all the time. Now I am not saying you don’t have a right to you beliefs but it is time to grow up. Time to stop picking and choosing what science to believe in.

People are people, we all have a right to who we are. Yeah being different is wonderful, I am blessed. Now take the time and watch the videos on that link I gave you to a good show. Each video is not very long. It is time to learn and grow.

2019 and 2020

Are you 18 or older? Do you live in a place where you can vote? Then you need to do it! No excuses…

In the last ten years we have seen a huge slide downward in the world. God is not to blame but we are. By action of inaction we vote in Monsters without really thinking of what might happen if…

In the US you have a man who respects only people who think like he does and no one else. Even then he he treats those like used toilet paper. In Australia we have the Liberal party and a few speed bumps who sit in office. With a current leader no one voted for and is a hypocrite to a point it should shock anyone, but it doesn’t.

So in these two years we can make a change. VOTE, vote for what is right, vote for good people to lead us, and vote for those whom you can trust. If that means not voting for the lesser of two evils then DO IT! But VOTE!

Don’t let them win, VOTE!
please…
