Bonsoir. πŸ‘‹πŸΏ

I'm Joseph. You may remember me from such non-existent programming like:

πŸ“Ί This Queer Black Guy Won't Shut Up About Things
πŸ“Ί OMG You're Such A Dork

I'm once again expatriate (originally from the UK) having moved to the States for another long-term stint. Father to the most phenomenal girl in the world.

I'm very much a jack-of-all-trades/human Swiss Army knife so feel free to inquire.

Previously on The Chronicles of Queer.party's Prodigal Son: I cosplayed as Miles Morales for Halloween 2K19 and neglected to tell you all about it because I'm addicted to the Bad Place.

Maybe 2019 will be the year that I finally get some of that new material done. Maybe 2019 will be the year that the solo album that I've been working on for the last six years will get finished.

Maybe. Until then, you're just going to have to make do with these tracks. soundcloud.com/the-auracle/set

So I thought I'd spread the word about an anthology on bisexuality that I contributed a personal narrative to. It's called The Bi-ble. Published by the amazing Monstrous Regiment (an indie publishing house ran by two wonderful queer women out of Edinburgh) and it might be the most important book on bise people you've never read.γ€€

Diane Abbott doesn't get enough protection in British politics

Don't @ me

So.

Limp Bizkit's Chocolate Starfish & The Hot Dog Flavoured Water still slaps after all these years.

I should hope that this firmly re-establishes the fact that you can either be the person that actually sets out to try and make things better or you can be the prick that stays in the background tearing others down.

That's what her dozy self-serving ass gets for guttersniping the efforts of the MPs worth a damn in Labour.

BAYBEH!

Karma came for Miss Ma'am Jess Phillips early in 2020.

In light of it being MLK Day, allow me to share this essay I wrote about the complex and powerful legacy of Dr. King. The people who opposed him are now praising him but taking anything he did or said out of context (like they often do) does no one any favours.

Welp.

With this Netflix/Studio Ghibli ting, North American audiences now know how it feels to be locked out of content.

I mean... that's obviously not what happened.

But it's now canon and you lot will deal.

So I don't know what happened to queer[dot]party yesterday but I'm just going to assume my self-portrait and my new white Doc Martens broke the instance.

So what's the point in half-assing punitive measures?

If you're milquetoast punitive efforts aren't bringing about the desired results to see cheating at an all-time low at the highest level of professional baseball, then fuck it. Just bring back the bad ol' days.

I'm talking about all the drugs, BYOB at the ballpark, smoking and chewing tobacco in the dugout, alladat.

Because you man aren't really serious about cleaning up baseball.

Hell, if the 'stros had beaten the Nationals (and thank Christ they didn't), they'd be laughing this punishment off even more. Winning any kind of accolade is unilateral. If you're found to have done something to violate the spirit of the competition, you gotta vacate the title. To me, it's less of a punitive measure and more of a message to those who'd even think about trying it and the bloody MLB can't even get that right.

Man, listen.

If the Houston Astros aren't getting their 2017 World Series title taken away, none of this is an adequate punishment for cheating. Yes, the manager and general manager deserve their suspensions of a year each. Yes, the club should be fined $5 million (if not more). Yes, the club should lose their first and second round draft picks for the next two years. But they still get to be called 2017 World Series champions.

Major League Baseball is a wholly unserious organisation.

Years after the Home Run 'roid scandal, they manage to find a way to make a mockery of punitive measures by doing everything but taking the 2017 World Series title away from the Astros.

Y'know... Oscar nominations are much easier to deal with when you completely accept that The Academy are full of shit and never get anything right.

Because of my experience on Birdsite, part of me is okay with the fact that I miss out on beef here and the other instances.

But then I find out it's involving people I've known and been mutuals with for a while and that? Well... that changes everything.

TEK.LUN is phenomenal and I've been listening to their tunes for years, yet one always manages to slip by.
