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.

I’m really damn proud of myself for coming up with this pun and making this image.

This post gained me a few new followers, and grabbed a bunch of notes, but it has a long way to go before it gets to the level of notes of that picture of the sculpture of a cello with butterflies coming out of it I posted once.

daf-kayden: Wat colors do u identify with

I’ve actually been trying to figure that out lately. I used to think I was Bant. I love knowledge and learning, so I’m pretty sure I am part blue. I have realized recently that I am also very red. I came to this conclusion after observing how impatient my wife can be, then seeing that I am also very impulsive.

P.S. - Be sure to check out my Magic side-blog, stevok42

The worst part about liking classical music is when you forget the name of a piece and you can’t google the lyrics because there are none

Someone suggest to me awesome female artists to listen to (please don’t say Lana Del Ray, Iggy Azaela, Marina & the Diamonds, etc)

"I am definitely a feminist. I’m f**king disgusted by the way women are still treated. It’s 1993 and some people still think we’re in the 1950’s. We need to make more progress. There needs to be more female musicians, more female artists, more female writers. Everything is dominated by f**king males, and I’m sick of it!"

Going to go see Ringo Starr tonight! I’m so excited to see him again. I’m also just as excited to get to see Todd Rundgren, who is currently in the band.

A Shocking Giveaway!
You all voted, and we came through so it is time for our giveaway. This one will be a little different than our usually, because it is happening thanks to empeopled and our users over there. Recently, I won a prize from empeopled I want to thank those of you who made it happen by doing a giveaway. So, we are now giving away a Hallowed Fountain from RTR! You can get in your name in the entry a few ways…
Reblog this post and be following us.
Send me your tumblr name on empeopled, and for each level you have in the Magic the Gathering group you get an additional entry (so level 4 gets 4 extra entries). I’ll manually go through and check your levels just before the drawing. If you haven’t signed up for empeopled yet, do so here and you still have time to climb a few levels.
I will do the drawing on Thursday evening at 8pm PDT. I will only ship the Hallowed Fountain inside the US, but I don’t want to exclude others so I will give away an MTGO Theros Block draft set to a winner outside the US. Also, we are down to just 4 3 beanies left, and I won’t be getting more in for at least a couple months so now is your last chance!
Thank you all for following, we appreciate it and we will continue to bring you fantastic MTG content.
