Day 1: hopes, dreams, and plans for the next 365 days with a picture of yourself
Can’t choose between the two. Bottom one is recent, other is one of my favourites from a couple of months ago.
Hopes, dreams and plans, huh?
Well. Coming out probably isn’t on the cards, but I’d like to explore my gender a bit more.
I want to get a flat, or a house (to rent, not buy).
I’d like to continue drawing every so often, even though it’s not a major thing.
Sort out TheFloor, and have a steady business going there. Maybe get a ‘proper’ job. Some sort of regular income, anyway.
I want to make movies. Specifically, Aequitas, Middle of the Road and Chameleon. And I know that Chameleon isn’t likely to happen, but I think I can push it. I need that film made. I’d also like to have scripted either Veritas or Bridges. I’d like to have done something with We Don’t Care for the Outside, and I’d like to have at least started shooting for The White Cat and the Butterfly.
I want to remind myself why I’m here, and then go out and make an impact, however small.

I am currently working on breaking away from this defence mechanism, but half the time I don’t even realise I’m doing it.
The true identity of Ludwig van Beethoven, long considered Europe’s greatest classical music composer. Said directly, Beethoven was a black man. Specifically, his mother was a Moor, that group of Muslim Northern Africans who conquered parts of Europe—making Spain their capital—for some 800 years.
In order to make such a substantial statement, presentation of verifiable evidence is compulsory. Let’s start with what some of Beethoven’s contemporaries and biographers say about his brown complexion.:
” Frederick Hertz, German anthropologist, used these terms to describe him: “Negroid traits, dark skin, flat, thick nose.”
Emil Ludwig, in his book “Beethoven,” says: “His face reveals no trace of the German. He was so dark that people dubbed him Spagnol [dark-skinned].”
Fanny Giannatasio del Rio, in her book “An Unrequited Love: An Episode in the Life of Beethoven,” wrote “His somewhat flat broad nose and rather wide mouth, his small piercing eyes and swarthy [dark] complexion, pockmarked into the bargain, gave him a strong resemblance to a mulatto.”
C. Czerny stated, “His beard—he had not shaved for several days—made the lower part of his already brown face still darker.”
Following are one word descriptions of Beethoven from various writers: Grillparzer, “dark”; Bettina von Armin, “brown”; Schindler, “red and brown”; Rellstab, “brownish”; Gelinek, “short, dark.”
Newsweek, in its Sept. 23, 1991 issue stated, “Afrocentrism ranges over the whole panorama of human history, coloring in the faces: from Australopithecus to the inventors of mathematics to the great Negro composer Beethoven.”
And yet Western “scholars” want you to believe that Beethoven looked like:
This is definitely something that I didn’t know.
Holy fuck to the what, this is startling as balls. I had no idea! How fucked up is that?
