WIIIIIIII!!!

Nintendo Wii
WE GOT A WII!

Oh, Mom, you are the best. (Even if you’ve practically all but disowned me a few times now.) Mother Dearest was so kind as to deposit more than enough money into my account not too long ago and insisted that I use it to buy myself a Nintendo Wii. This, I thought, was pretty funny, considering I was trying for so long to get one for her and my Dad. But I thought to myself… in all seriousness, I really don’t know if they’d appreciate that gift to its fullest and I could probably get them something they’d much rather enjoy. Only problem was, I couldn’t seem to find one anywhere! I mean seriously, they’ve been selling out in stores since the day it was launched. It’s making world history for fuck sake.

Anyway, long story short… we finally managed to find one. After making countless calls to dozens of stores around Pennsylvania, we finally managed to get lucky as we called Wal-Mart just before they received a new shipment. We were there an hour later, all the way in State College, thanks again to Pap. And we even had the gaul to pick up a used game from GameStop. Imagine that.

So, once again, thank you, Mom. Wherever you are. We’ll be seeing you on Saturday and you can Wii to your heart’s content. (Somehow I just know my parents will love it…)

Happy Christmas!

A Message From Alicia

I Am Alicia Silverstone, And I Am A Vegetarian


Like most people, I wasn’t always a vegetarian, but I’ve always loved animals. If you ever have a chance to meet a cow, pig, turkey, or goat, you will see that they are just as cute and funny as your dogs and cats and that they, too, want to live and feel love. They don’t like pain. Now when I see a steak, it makes me feel sad and sick because right away, I see my dog or the amazing cows I met at a sanctuary. I’ve been vegan for 10 years, and it’s the single-most important and helpful decision I have ever made. Physically, the effect has been amazing. Once I went vegan, I lost the weight I wanted to lose, my nails were stronger, and my skin was glowing. I feel great, and I look better now than I did 11 years ago.

Being vegan truly is the secret to my life’s joy and peace. I feel physically and spiritually better than I could have ever imagined knowing that I am doing everything I can to reduce animal suffering with simple lifestyle choices like being vegan, never wearing any products made from animals (like wool and leather), and buying only from companies that NEVER test their products or ingredients on animals.

Join me—won’t you? It is easy—check out my favorite recipes and cruelty-free cosmetics and fashions, and watch my PSA!

Together, we can make the world a more peaceful place for animals.

Dita Von Teese’s Sexy ABC Ad

Dita Von Teese Launches PETA’s ABC Campaign With Sexy New Ad

Dita knows her ABCs

Dita Von Teese is the definition of sexy. She is a spokesmodel for the MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam campaign and the face of the holiday catalog for Frederick’s of Hollywood, performs live burlesque shows, and has graced the cover of magazines around the world, including Playboy, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar. Now Dita is combining her sex appeal with her compassion for animals to launch PETA’s new ABC campaign.

What does ABC stand for? Animal birth control, of course! PETA’s new ABC campaign tackles the issue of companion animal overpopulation and urges people to do their part by taking simple steps to help end this crisis.

Dita knows her ABCs and just how important animal birth control is. Every year, nearly 4 million dogs and cats are put to death in the U.S. because there are not enough good homes for them. Until we all do our part to put an end to this cycle, euthanasia will remain a tragic necessity.

In her ad, Dita urges fans to “bone up” on their ABCs and, if they are considering adding a dog or a cat to the family, to adopt from a local animal shelter and be sure to get their new family member spayed or neutered.

Watch behind-the-scenes footage from Dita’s photo shoot and her exclusive interview with PETA.

The Art Of Airbrush

Before
After

This is amazing. I’ve heard all the hoopla over airbrushing celebrities before but I didn’t know they took it this far. These pictures don’t even look like the same people. Check this out:

Okay, I know. It’s fucking Christmas and here I am, 5 in the morning, looking at airbrushed models online. Well… Dani and Pap are asleep and my recent insomnia prohibits me from accompanying them. Sooo… I’m just trying to kill some time I guess. We did have a pretty decent Christmas Eve and I’m sure today will be fun too, once everyone is up and we make the rounds visiting Dani’s family. Her mother finally gave birth to a new baby boy last nite (unfortunately, we missed the big event by only a few minutes) and we enjoyed a really nice holiday dinner with her uncle, cousins and some other relatives that I can’t place right now.

So leave me alone. It’s not as pathetic as it seems. Happy Christmas!

Very Christmas

Very Christmas indeed.

Nintendo Wii

I still say the Wii is a myth. I’ve been dying to get my hands on one for my parents (and myself) for over a year now and every single time, it’s the same old story. Well, still a little time left so I’m crossing my fingers. Had to sell my Akai MPC2000XL for USD$500 just to be able to afford some decent Christmas shopping this year. I really didn’t want to say goodbye, considering it’s such an iconic piece of musical equipment but it’s fairly obsolete with my current lifestyle. Tried to auction it off on eBay and someone not too far from here got in touch with me in no time and made the offer to pick it up and pay with cash. Easy sale. So, D and I have been doing pretty good with gifts since.

Ah, the holidays. Honestly, I’m not too thrilled about posting right now. We’ve had one hell of a week and I feel like shit. Since travelling all the way to Philadelphia via train last week, things have been pretty exhausting. We were forced to overnight with no money for accommodation and barely enough for food and ended up wandering around the streets between downtown and 30th Street Station from sundown to sunup. It was nice to get out Lewistown for once but I wouldn’t exactly call it a vacation. Philly isn’t the nicest place, in terms of hygiene. Good shopping though! And it’s littered with century old architecture everywhere (oh and lots of American patriotism and history too) which was downright gorgeous. We took a few pictures and videos but we were far too busy trying to acquire Danielle’s passport. (All of this was so unnecessary but…) I don’t know how she did it but somehow she managed to pull it off; with a little help from my mother’s and her grandfather’s pockets but all the same, we finally made it to the passport office and managed to get everything situated just in time.

So, save for a horrible experience of us freezing to death all night long with myself lacking nearly 48 hours of sleep and Danielle enduring more grueling pregnancy pains throughout the entire trip, things went well. We even had time to swing by the Independence Hall and visit the Liberty Bell. (At Danielle’s request.) And voila, three days later, the long-awaited passport is delivered straight to our door.

Oh but the best news of the week! The following morning after surviving the trials of Philly, we had an appointment at Geisinger Hospital for our first ultrasound! YES. We have pictures and god I wish I could post them. Not a scanner in sight though but oh well. As far as the nurse can tell, our baby is coming along fine and looking healthy. Due date is right on the money too:

10th May, 2008

Thank God. A Taurus. I don’t know if I could deal with raising a Gemini. Still don’t know what gender (or sex) it is yet though but the dreams I’ve been having have me leaning towards a boy. Yeah, I would’ve liked to have a daughter but I’m not being picky at all. Just wish we had some sort of father figure around because we all know I can’t fit the bill.

So, since then. we’ve been hunting down Wii’s online, doing Christmas shopping at Wal-Mart and BonTon, hanging out with Trey before we head off and even enjoyed an intimate Christmas outing for two; dinner at Angelo’s Italian Restaurant and a movie at the Miller Theatre. National Treasure: Book Of Secrets. It was pretty good. Pretty much decided to see it because of Danielle because it didn’t really matter to me. I just love dinner and a movie. Keep the chocolate.

Well, Christmas Eve has finally arrived and the big day draws near. Happy Holidays to all out there. You know who you are. And Heather, hugs and kisses to you. Love you.

The End Of The World

As December draws to a close, I can’t help but look back on all that I’ve experienced this crazy year. Funny how they seem to get crazier as time goes on. I thought last year would be pretty tough to beat but oh, after these former twelve months? It’s beaten. To a pulp. In retrospect though, as hard as times have been, I’d have to say that it was easily the best of my life. Thanks most in part to my beloved Danielle. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had our pitfalls. (We’re not doing so hot right now either.) But no matter what happens beyond today, I know I won’t regret any of it. Thank you, D, for giving me the best times of my life. I love you.

My successes this year include: embracing my transgenderism and effectively completing and continuing my RLE; leaving college; getting married; avoiding numerous police arrests; making a baby; convincing my parents to send me to counselling; landing a job in my ideal career field only to discover that it’s clearly no longer my career field and quitting before probation was up; experiencing my first polyamouros relationship; experiencing my first foursome; travelling across the United States of America on a Greyhound bus for three and a half days; becoming Vegan; dealing with the loss of both my grandmothers; cuddling with my best friend; launching an online business in Second Life; surviving a car accident; seeing snow; making another song; eviction; living illegally in a foreign country; joining PETA; meeting Danielle for the first time; getting stranded in the middle of the night in downtown Phoenix; discovering Electroclash; discovering Nu Jazz; discovering pierogies; visiting real farms; sex with a hermaphrodite; throwing hookah parties; getting a perfect score in Yoshi’s Island all over again; speaking to the dead, experiencing a cuddle puddle in front of a bonfire in the middle of the desert; enjoying a free pizza, compliments of a friendly taxi driver, etc..

Not too bad for a year’s work, I suppose. The latter part of it was fairly tame (and much more arduous) compared to the beginning but I’m not complaining. Too much.

I won’t lie. Nowadays, things are more difficult than they’ve ever been. Between Danielle and I, we hardly have any money to our names. No place of our own and nowhere to go from here but back to my hometown. And it’s not going to get any easier yet. I’m more than ready to start the next chapter but I’m scared. I really am. I don’t know how I’m going to live a happy life down there but at least I won’t be alone. Looking forward to seeing the family again. The beaches. My friends. And, most of all, Kristina. Excited to show Danielle around (if she ever decides to get this passport before it’s too late) and land another job but other than that… well, I don’t know. Que sera sera. Here’s to another crazy year.

Misadventures Of A Vagrant T-Girl

There's plenty fun to be had. From the Cayman Islands, to London, to Phoenix and back again, Silky's been there, done that. But life's for the living and I ain't dead yet. Making vegans look cool, trannies sound sexy and delivering shit hot Electro is my deal. Loving my beautiful wife, nurturing my baby boy Phoenix and making my small mark on this jaded world of post-consumerism is my mantra. Friends, welcome. Guests, indulge. There's plenty fun to be had.
