      Bio:

      White, disabled, and genderqueer, Eli Clare has a B.A. in Women's Studies, a M.F.A. in Creative Writing, and most importantly a penchant for rabble-rousing. Among other pursuits, he has walked across the United States for peace, coordinated a rape prevention program, and helped organize the first-ever Queerness and Disability Conference. He has spoken all over the United States at conferences, community events, and colleges about disability, queer and trans identities, and social justice. Eli is the author of a book of essays Exile and Pride: Disability, Queerness, and Liberation (South End Press, 1999) and a collection of poetry The Marrow's Telling: Words in Motion (Homofactus Press, 2007) and has been published in many periodicals and anthologies.

      Exile and Pride:
      "In these interconnected essays, Eli Clare vibrantly describes the “rednecks†and clearcuts he grew up among, the freak shows of the nineteenth century and transgender activists of today. Intelligence and wit illuminate his analysis of disability, child abuse, nature, pornography, sexuality, and class."


      I read it for my class at school and I was lucky enough to have Eli Clare come into my class, and then a group of us went out for coffee. This was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life to be able to read his book, have him in my classroom, and then talk with him afterward. He has so much insight about the world.
      When I was talking to him today I was absolutely shocked when he told me that in the last year (to this day as it is Trans Day of Remembrance , for all the trans people who have died because of who they are due to discrimination and blind hate) so in the last year SEVENTEEN people were killed in the United States of America alone who were trans at the hands of hatred.

      Since this group deals with Visual Kei bands... It makes sense to have a PICTURE thread where you can post your favorite pictures of JRockers ^o^

      I'll start with my favorites:

      QUESTION: What is/was/will forever be your favorite Legend of Zelda game? AND WHY?

      For me, it is and forever will be Ocarina of Time. BECAUSE it was my first LoZ game and I absolutely loved the story, game play, art, music, everything!! (and Link was my first video game crush.. lets face it, he is dreamy LOL!)

      I got into JRock via anime when I was in high school. I youtube'd some into/outro songs and just didn't stop. I started with L'Arc~en~Ciel primarily... Then I just kept discovering more bands. I became addicted to their outrageous and gorgeous visual style as well as music. Visual Kei is a real dynamic form of art as it embraces visual and music styles and runs with it!! smiley12.gif

      Did I miss some!? smiley4.gif

      Did you know? That Visual Kei's roots are in Japanese Traditional Theater called Kabuki !? Elaborate costumes, onnagata (men dressing as women), Wild make-up, Extreme hair, and the intruiging visual performance were all inspired by Kabuki and have now grown into a huge subculture in Japan and spreading. Of course Visual Kei has made its own distinction from something like Kabuki but the connection is still there. This makes Visual Kei something unique to Japan and unique to the music world. Therefore it only makes sense Visual Kei is spreading outside of Japan it attacts those who love beautifully visual performances and it encludes many many genres of music.

      I created this forum topic to get those who love JRock talking and sharing . Also, this is for those who are new to Jrock and are looking for a place to explore more JRock!!

      Holy shi-- you are my new favorite person. o_o''' Just saw your J-Rock thread! I'll have to check it out later, though, 'cause I was supposed to leave five minutes ago! Anyway, I just wanted to say that you are awesome and I might actually faint if I got the chance to speak with you. XD I've never had the pleasure of running into anyone as into J-Rock as I am!

      I mean, I know a few people who listen to one or two bands, but that's just not the same.

      it's not on gamestops website for some reason. i foudn this on another website

      The Dragon Age: Origins special edition, newly revealed on GameStop.com, includes a pile of stuff, both real and virtual. For your $74.99 (or $64.99, if you're PC-style), you'll receive a tin case (of course); a bonus DVD with a documentary, music, video, and wallpapers; a cloth map (which is a totally old-school bonus), in-game quests and characters, and even an exclusive in-game item in Mass Effect 2.

      If you buy the thing from GameStop, you get even more in-game junk: a Feral Wolf Charm, that increases health regeneration, and a Memory Ring, which boosts experience accumulation. The best part of all these virtual goodies? They don't require head-shaped stands.

      Me too. Liked the atmosphere, jazz-music and that loneliness you got there.
      I mean I actually felt bad for Rookie when I played the game, being forgotten like that. If I were him, I'd kick Romeos nuts back to the orbit for trying to leave me behind, because of being a Rookie.

      The myth story is just another random story thing, just started it because I had nothing to do in work one day and you know how I drag these things out.

      Here's the start of the myth story. Prologue really but important to know what's going on, but there's a lot of it so if you do want to read it you'll be reading it for a while lol
