Fuck Depression

Depression lies. Depression kills. Depression nearly took me a few years ago, but I had friends who got to me in time. But it got Robin Williams today, and to hell with it. To quote a friend: If you’re hurting, if you’re sad, if you need help – please, please, please find what you need. …

Harassment

Whether it be a fan con or a lifestyle event, from this day forward I will do everything in my power to make sure that every convention with which I am involved has an anti-harassment policy in place, well-publicized, and enforced. For decades, I have been under the impression that fans and kinky people were …

Agents of S.H.O.K.O.L.A.D.A.

A Twitter conversation… [friend]: Awesome thing I forgot to mention earlier: I finally have an official dotgov.gov domain registration account 😀 [me]: I’m guessing I can’t bribe you to register “shokolada.gov” for me, though. 😛 [friend]: *giggles* Not really, unless you can come up with some official-y agency or program acronym that matches 😛 [me]: …

She Got the Beat

Belinda Carlisle, before her Go-Go's lead singer gig, wearing a dress made from a black plastic trash bag.

Singer Belinda Carlisle used to run around wearing trash bag dresses. Always knew there was a reason I liked the Go-Go’s.

Notes on MarsCon and “Ready for Transport”

So, MarsCon is this completely awesome sci-fi/fantasy convention in Williamsburg that used to be a small relax-a-con, but isn’t quite as small anymore because it’s too awesome. Where else can you get complete, decent meals in the Con Suite for free all weekend? Doesn’t make me miss the autograph lines for Battlestar Galactica celebs at …

Date Preparations

A hotel room fridge, with some sodas in the door and nine tubs or whipped topping defrosting in the main section

This is what the hotel room fridge can look like when I’ve got a hot weekend date. Which I do.

Framing Your Mess

A few lovely folks have recently asked me what we used to hold up the big trash bag for my birthday sploshing and for the Bakery Trash video seen elsewhere on this site. Well, I have to say, it was pretty exotic, expensive, and customized to our needs… I went over to the Wal-Mart and …

Messy Birthday 2007

Shokolada sitting in a big trash bag, covered in pie and pudding

This is by far the most popular picture I’ve ever posted on FetLife. I’ve got to do it again sometime soon… it was so amazing the first time! Here’s how it went down: Imagine a dessert list with 25 whipped cream pies — 4 buckets each full of a different color of cake batter — …

Really. LOTS of weather.

I need a better cover story. After less than a week at my new day job, a co-worker asks: “So, you have WordPress experience?” “Yep! Done some decent work!” “What kind of blog are you working on now?” “Oh… I… manage a site… for a friend.” “Cool, I’d love to see it! Let’s pull it …

Nic Buxom: Art of Domination

I’ve been reading Nic Buxom’s webcomic nearly since it began. Her real life job as a West Coast dominatrix provides her with a lot of great reality-based material! She’s a great artist with a wonderful sense of humor, and I enjoy every strip (though a few have been somber and serious, so ‘enjoy’ may not …
