ok do you see this Legendary Epic woman right here? this is wendy fucking carlos and i’m going to describe to you why wendy carlos is 30 thousand times better than you
she is a 74 year old trans fucking woman. she remembers having dysphoria at age five and started hrt in 1968. you think transitioning is difficult now? try doing it in 1968. the thought scares the shit out of me.
her first album, switched on bach, is a literal hour of her playing bach’s music on synthesizers. that’s classical edm. edm wouldn’t exist if she hadn’t brought synthesizers to prominence. the catch? synthesizers in 1968 were monophonic. that means you can only play one note at a time. wendy carlos sat there and played each instrument’s piece of bachs music at least 6 times per symphony, painstakingly overdubbing and rerecording each line, one at a time.
oh yeah, switched on bach was the first classical album to sell more than 500k copies and she won 3 grammies and stayed on the billboard #1 pop charts for 17 weeks.
you know tron? that really awesome movie whose sequel daft punk made the ost for? wendy is the original daft punk. tron’s soundtrack was all her; not only that, but so was a clockwork orange and the shining. 
in 1998 this piece of shit momus (aka nick currie on wired) made a song mocking wendy’s sexual orientation. $50k of currie’ money later, she forced him to remove that song from his entire collection, have the master destroyed, and his music career fucking died after that.
figured i’d post this since daft punk keep getting a lot of love. i love daft punk, but they owe their lives to this fucking badass.

Science Shows Something Surprising About People Who Love to Write

if you think that professor mcgonagall didn’t love james potter then let me just explain to you how wrong you are because among james’ many talents he was really fan-fucking-tastic at two things: quidditch and transfiguration and those just happen to be mcgonagall’s favorite things so guess what he may have been a little shit but he was her little shit and you know she loved every minute of detention she had to chaperone with him

Expressions

Delling has such an expressive face I decided to try a little experiment to provoke different emotional reactions. I would call out things I knew they would respond to and try to capture a photo of the resulting expression.

This was a lot of fun and Delling is adorable. No complaints from reddit people. One person thought the misandry one was very insulting and that I am what is wrong with the world.

The world. It’s my fault. Sorry bout that. 

broadwanime said: I suddenly envisioned you writing an episode of Welcome to Night Vale and I had stars in my eyes because I imagined it would have been fantastic. Seriously, Orion's belt is caught right now beside my pupil because you and writing is a great OTP.

jfdsfjwoejrowerjofdsonfjdf IXY HUSH. 

But actually I would love doing that so much I have no idea how to do it but I would LOVE IT. 

Maybe someday if inspiration strikes, we should write a Night Vale episode together, because you write the Night Vale style really well, and you also have constellations in your eyes, which is very Night Valian and beautiful
