People call me various things. Teela, Teelar, Tee-tee, Teelch, Tuula, that Chick, Her, Choir Mommy.
Choir and opera person (lyric soprano with the possibility of extending into a coloratura?). There are lots of things that I like, and many will appear here.
If there is something on my blog that triggers you and I do not tag it, PLEASE send me an ask to tell me what it is. You can be anonymous, or not. Whatever is comfy for you.
My ask is always open.
Have some cookies and tea and a blanket for your stay.
it is 2014. there are no excuses left. (via callmeoutis)
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
oh if anyone wants to know about my synesthesia please come ask I like talking about it
If I say/do something wrong PLEASE CORRECT ME
A MOMENT OF DISCOMFORT ON MY PART IS WELL WORTH YOUR OVERALL COMFORT AND SAFETY
So in case you didn’t see Beyonce’s performance at the VMA. Let this Synesthesiac explain it to you. HER VOICE IS LIKE, SO MANY COLOURS AT ONCE, THAT IT IS SEE-THROUGH, AND IT CURVES LIKE SUNRAYS. I CRIED SO HARD. HOLY FUCK.
NO BUT SAME OKAY
SHE’S ONE OF THE FEW ARTISTS WHOSE VOICE IS ALWAYS ONE COLOR, AND IT’S GOLD FOR ME
Her songs are like little kaleidoscopes in my screen
So I talked to my professor of experiencing music (basically ethnomusicology) about my synesthesia (mostly because I wanted to ask if I could refer to the colors in my future journals) and ended up in a discussion with him and two other students about it
I let him try to sensory overload me (like I gave him express permission and he was all like are you sure) but it didn’t work- it was all coming from just his laptop and him, so my senses could…lean the other way, I guess? If he’d had his laptop hooked into the speakers all around the class it probably would have worked. But I was sure it wasn’t going to cause a panic overload, just the screen overload, cause I was mentally prepared for it.
kids who want to explore their gender identity and have fun and use cutesy pronouns and generally exist without harming anyone on a blogging website are not the reason trans people are oppressed the reason that trans people are oppressed is SYSTEMATIC INSTATUTIONALIZED TRANSPHOBIA
ok, new theory. maybe we should play so quietly, no one can hear us
well maybe we would sound so bad if some people didn’t try to play with big meaty claws
what did you say, punk?
WELL THESE CLAWS AIN’T JUST FOR ATTRACTING MATES
BRING IT ON OLD MAN, BRING IT ON
no people let’s be smart and bring it OFF
OH SO NOW THE TALKING CHEESE IS GONNA PREACH TO US
