New Community Invitation

Cross posted everywhere

Hello everyone. My name is Andrea. I am a mother to a Deaf child, sister to someone who has Cerebral Palsy and is a FIERCE disability right activist, and I myself have ADHD. I am also a Student at Antioch University Seattle in a BA completion program with a class assignment that I would love for you to be a part of. My class is centered around how individuals can use their personal stories to create social change.

For my project, I would like to gather stories of experiences of medical care from people in the disabilities community. I plan on creating a booklet or zine of related art, photography, and primarily your stories to then pass on to the University of Washington's department of disability studies ( http://depts.washington.edu/chdd/ ). It is my hope that by offering your experiences, future medical care providers will have a better understanding of their impact when working with future patients.

Because of the often sensitive nature of these stories, anonymous contributions would be more than welcome. I have set up an account for those who would like to add their stories anonymously. Please see the community for more information. Please also let me know if you have any additional ideas for the direction of this project.

This community is part of a six week project. It is my hope that well after the project itself is completed, the community will continue to be a place of support and sharing

Press Release: RICHARD HANNEMANN DEBUTS ALBUM "THE MUSICIAN"

     Richard Hannemann, singer/songwriter, guitarist/composer, is pleased to announce the availability of his debut album, "The Musician", on his website www.HannemannMusic.com

     There are several elements to the unique listening experience of the album. It is not of a single genre throughout: there are 8 song tracks of a folk/country/standards blend and 4 solo guitar tracks of a classical/light jazz/blues nature. Mr. Hannemann's principle instrument is the classical guitar, which gives a warmer, richer tone than the more standard steel string guitar. His finger-style technique, itself a classical/folk blend, allows for straight-up to intricate accompaniments which create an internal rhythm for the songs and allows for solo instrumental bridges within the songs. The lyric songs add a 12 string guitar for foundation, and mandolin, melodica, and bass (as needed) as color polyphony to the vocal line. Mr. Hannemann plays all instruments. Then there are the narrative segues placed between the principle song tracks. Each narrative is accompanied by either the classical guitar, the 12 string, or the mandolin and, combined, we hear the story of a semi - retired musician advising a youngster just starting out on a life in music.

     Many guitarists in the internet community may remember Mr. Hannemann from the old AOL GTRSIG as amadeus555, where he authored a series of guitar lessons. Those Lessons are also available in book form.

     To audition and/or order The Musician, please visit Mr. Hannemann's site, www.HannemannMusic.com .

Hi, I just joined.

This community seems really neato. I'm always joining the SI groups and stuff. But, I never saw anything for the fallen. It just seems so perfect! ^_^
I'll introduce myself now. I'm 16 years old. I am bisexual. Also, I am a self-injurer. I have social anxiety. And, I'm now in homeschool because of it. A lot of people don't understand me, so they cast me aside because I'm weird, stupid, nasty, etc... It's very hurtful. I've been betrayed, lied to, molested, and hurt deeply. I am afraid to trust people now. There are very few who have my trust. And, I hope to atleast find people here who know what this is like...people who understand, someone I can relate to and talk to. I'm very hopefull that I will. ^_^

Hello,

My name is Belinda.. I just got to this place.. and yea.

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to say..

Um, all I can say is I'm not preppy, I have my posh and hyper moments
We all do.. but I wouldn't refer myself as "goth", "punk", "emo". or anything like that.. Though I am labeled under those categories by fags.

I consider my self a tomboy. I was a tomboy when younger, I'm a tomboy now, and I will always be a tomboy. Though I do have my girly moments. Fucking hormones.

Well, I bid thee a farewell and hope that I'm accepted. -bows-

Well seeing as no one has posted much I guess I will. So last weekend I gave a wonderful boy my number, and although my Magic Eight Ball said he would be calling sometime soon, alas, he has not and he pretty much made me feel like crap.

Pain And Hate

Pain is hate, and hate is pain.
So if we choose not to hate, we still will have pain bc othrs will hate.
But, it will never work, fore we can never stop hating. For one thing, we hate the pain.
