I like art and latex and music and cosplay and fashion and Transformers. I'm a queer poly genderqueer switch trying to rock a Kawaii style in Cleveland, Ohio.
-Any pronouns - Gifted with the lovely combo of depression and anxiety.
Occasionally NSFW owing to the latex, but I try to leave this rather clean.
Pictures of me are tagged “me.”
Saw the Cybertronic Spree on Friday at House of Blues Cleveland. Amazing energy, stage presence, and those freakin’ costumes! Most definitely worth seeing if they come around you, I’ll be sure to go again if they ever return to Cleveland! #livemusic #cybertronicspree #recommended (at House of Blues Cleveland)
Reminder now that Bumblebee is out for purchase: It is without any doubt or hyperbole the best quality Transformers movie. That’s not saying much as the previous films range from being a mess to being downright an offense against humanity, but objectively this is a pretty darn good flick. Not perfect, and some of the seems of the various rewrites and reshoots are evident, but I genuinely and unreservedly love it. (Yes, the animated one from ‘86 is still my favorite, but I can admit that it isn’t technically good cinema.)
And the outtakes, my friends, make buying physical disk worth it. They integrate the outtakes into the original scenes for an absurdist take on the film that could have actually worked in some points. My partner and I were both squeeing with delight as John Cena continued to make light in dramatic moments.

Thank you to all the people who posted this so I ended up seeing it. I really needed this right now. Thank you!
I needed this.
Yeah… Not gonna lie… I cried…
We need more people like this
Goddamn it stop making me feel human
The therapist I wanna be.
Text in the image:
“I’m a therapist and keep this poster in my waiting room, apparently it’s saved a few lives.”
I don’t like the phrase “a cry for help.” I just don’t like how it sounds. When somebody says to me, “I’m thinking about suicide. I have a plan: I just need a reason not to do it,” the last thing I see is helplessness.
I think your depression has been beating you up for years. It’s called you ugly, and stupid, and pathetic, and a failure, for so long that you’ve forgotten that it’s wrong. You don’t see any good in yourself, and you don’t have any hope.
But still here you are: you’ve come over to me, banged on my door and said, “HEY! Staying alive is REALLY HARD right now! Just give me something to fight with! I don’t care if it’s a stick! Give me a stick and I can stay alive!”
How is that helpless? I think that’s incredible. You’re like a marine: trapped for years behind enemy lines. Your gun has been taken away, you’re out of ammo, you’re malnourished, and you’ve probably caught some kind of jungle virus that’s making you hallucinate giant spiders.
And you’re still just going, “GIVE ME A STICK. I’M NOT DYING OUT HERE.”
“A cry for help” makes it sound like I’m supposed to take pity on you, but you don’t need my pity. This isn’t pathetic. This is the will to survive. This is how humans lived long enough to become the dominant species.
With NO hope, running on NOTHING, you’re ready to cut through a hundred miles of hostile jungle with nothing but a stick, if that’s what it takes to get to safety.
All I’m doing is handing out sticks.
You’re the one saying alive.
I legit cried at this. I’ve needed to hear it put this way. Bless this post.
Every time I see this post I stop to read the whole image. It always helps — even on the good days.
Because it wasn’t weakness. It wasn’t shameful to seek help. It wasn’t pathetic to “cry for help”. I was looking for a stick, be that from myself or from someone else. I was trying to find a way out. I was trying to heal myself.
this is fuckin incredible.
I’m sorry if I repost to many of these, but if it could be someone’s “stick” then it’s worth it
These are the two Transformers I picked up at Star Pop on Friday. For all the articulation, detail, and ingenuity of modern figures, I still appreciate the old ones in all their chunky glory. Especially ones that have sacrificed everything in favor of a gimmick (in this case they change from car to robot on their own).
Don’t judge them, they are my ugly little babies and I love them! #transformers #runabout #runamuck #battlechargers #80stoys #myuglybabies (at STAR POP vintage + modern)
The rainbow troll. Maybe this picture is about that feeling when you’re happy, but there’s this nagging awareness that it won’t last or that you don’t deserve it somehow… or it could be that I just can’t stop drawing rainbows right now. I can’t get enough of the things! #troll #nag #cave #rainbow #dayglo #happiness #happy #fleeting #fragile #brevity #inevitable https://ift.tt/2HPDDf0
Went to Star Pop on Friday after work to pick up some vintage Transformers, and found a classic leather motorcycle police jacket that actually fit me! Looks like there might be a Mega-City One Judge cosplay in my future. Or, you know, a leather bear. Whatever! #leatherjacket #motorcyclejacket #vintagefinds #imtoosexy (at STAR POP vintage + modern)
Something I really loved about Black Panther is that it’s such a perfect example of how when you have a healthy number of women in a movie, there’s so much more freedom to have them behave and think and react in different ways, because none of them are bearing the weight of being The Female Character. You can show all kinds of different ways of being women without it being a statement on women in general the way it is when there’s only one female character.
Was lucky enough to score the Marvel Rising #1 variant by @peachmomoko60 because I was the first person to ask for it when it was open for preordering. So cool seeing artists I’ve been following for a while getting noticed by the big companies, especially when paired with a property I’m all too happy to support! #MarvelRising #comics #variantcover #peachmomoko #squirrelgirl #msmarvel #captainmarvel #americachavez #spidergwen #marvelcomics (at Carol and John’s Comic Book Shop)
This was originally one of the rough sketches i did for my previous “Unbraided” piece, but I liked it so much i decided to finish it.
And thank you everyone for the well wishes! I’m feeling much better today! It was nice to finally sit down and draw again after barely having a chance to sketch in the last week .
More fantastically perfect items from @sugarbone! Most of these will be going onto my pink denim jacket, but I’m still trying to figure out the best thing to put the luggage tag on. #enamelpins #patch #sailormoon #bondagebear #sugarbones #selfexpression #spacebabe #bdsmkawaii
Every day begins and ends with “I’m so tired.”
Every thought of something to do, whether necessary or fun, is met with “I’m so tired.”
I’m so monumentally tired of constantly being emotionally exhausted.
That’s why I’m frustrated every time the wave of “get help if you need it” messages go out after a high profile suicide. I’ve been trying to get into therapy since August, and just finally got in last week. It’s difficult to keep up on trying to get them to call you back to schedule an appointment when you are overwhelmed by just your regular daily routine, when you feel like there is no future worth looking forward to, and that it’s pointless to try to feel better in the flaming dumpster that is our everything.
All this is to say that I am really tired.
This was a very good purchase. I like live albums where the songs are performed differently than the album versions, and there’s a lot of that on here. Also Reznor and Bowie singing together on a couple of tracks, including Hurt. #nineinchnails #davidbowie
I get creative when I’m only feeding myself - this time trying out tuna quesadillas! #makingdinner with #penzeysspices
