Eva: “What the Sim Gods are you talking about? Look, I apologise if he’s hurt you, but he’s not going to -”

Heloise: “It’s only a moment of time before he gets bored of you and moves onto somethin’ else, sweetheart. We both know that Forrest is unobtainable - nothing is good enough for him. He always gets bored so easily. At least I had some spunk to keep him on his toes. But…what do you have? Maybe a few years at most, because we both know you’re gonna die looonnnggg before him!”

Eva doesn’t know what to say, she is completely taken aback by the venom dripping from this woman’s words. There are no words or comebacks that spring into her mind to defend herself with, just a sense of crippling self-doubt.

Heloise: “I’ll give you one last chance, Suga - end this now before anyone gets hurt. If you go through with this, I promise to make your life miserable from here until the short time when you die of old age!”

[ As usual, I was wholly consumed by abstract matters such as Time and Responsibilities … but let me momentarily keep the beasts at bay to announce what else has been keeping me busy: preparations for the last edition of ABCD!

For those who don’t know the project: each year we gather a team of musicians, artists and tuners to create a free digital album for KAITO’s 4 birthdays ( A through D ). While I know baiting with names has promotional value, the full line-up won’t be out until November 2 ( Smiling KAITO Day, see below! ), so I can’t say anything on that yet … other than that we have a lot of returning participants, but we’re still seeking some extra!

The information site is over at @abcdinformationeng , so please see there for all details. If you have any other questions after reading it, you’re welcome to send me a message here! We’re largely still looking for some artists and tuners, but musicians are still welcome, too!

Oh, though, if that works as bait … I can tell you we have a theme this year, and it’s “fairytale”. I couldn’t think of anything more apt to give VOCALOID’s blue prince his happy ending … so let’s write it together, one last time! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و ]

The End of the Road

Author’s Note: so this is it…

I finally managed to write up the epilogue and it sort of wraps everyone up and I don’t really know if I’m happy with how it turned out but please, please, please, let me know what you think! And honestly, thank you so much for sticking with me the last three and a half years. You guys have been amazing and I love you all so so much.


Their car drew to a halt and Isabelle checked her fascinator was in place as she stepped out of the car. Royal watchers would marvel at the once trailblazing teen who was now at the prestigious Sovereign’s Parade. They had watched her grow and were shocked – for the better – at just how mature she now was, especially when one considered all that she had been through. The parallels that were often drawn between her and her father were never ending.

ik that im like super late to the party but i finally decided to post my designs for the boys,, better late than never right

i found this post in my drafts and have ZERO memory of writing it (thank u alcohol) so im gonna put it in my queue lol
  • ok but imagine 
  • Bitty comes out to his parents but he doesn’t tell them about Jack, thinks it’s for the best, maybe to ease his parents into things or maybe to keep the pool of People Who Know as small as possible 
  • and like yeah Ransom and Holster are super oblivious but Suzanne Bittle is not, not when it comes to her son, because she is a certified Nosy Southern Mother and she can see he’s been acting differently, happier but quieter, always on his phone and blushing when she asks about boys
  • and he talks about the team a LOT 
  • Jack’s one of his best friends and he’s just started his NHL career, so of course Bitty’s never gonna shut up about Jack
  • (Same goes for Shitty and law school. And eventually Ransom and med school. Dicky is proud of his friends and wants everyone to know. He gets that trait from Suzanne, she understands)
  • but he keeps talking about this one Boy, how sweet he is and how his smile is like a sack of puppies and how bitty’s always making this boy do things with him like baking and getting froyo and going shopping and Suzanne is like. Yes. This must be Dicky’s secret boyfriend. 
  •  the next family weekend or whatever, Suzanne demands to meet this Chowder boy who’s stolen Bitty’s heart
  • Bitty is both confused and mortified

There’s Nothing Wrong With You

One of the best pieces of advice I ever heard was “There’s nothing wrong with you”. 

It was a Monday morning and I was relaxing with friends in a hotel pool after playing Lollapalooza. A lady bobbed opposite me sipping a ginormous glass of rose, and we started chatting. She was a stylist and told me that, when her clients tried outfits on and looked at themselves in the mirror, she would tell them “There’s nothing wrong with you”. I asked her why and she said, “because we all think there’s something wrong with us ”. It was such an odd, simple notion, but I felt like a little flower had opened up inside of me. It hadn’t occurred to me that it could be a universal feeling. There was always something so wrong with ME, I hadn’t considered that other people might feel the same. The comment stuck with me like glue for the next year.

 I lived most of my life feeling like there was something deeply wrong with me. Everything I did was somehow geared towards fixing the parts of myself I thought were bad or ‘broken’. There was also an odd safety in being broken. I could quietly blame it for anything that went wrong in my life: “It’s not my fault: I’m f**ed up and I am very sorry!”. For a while, I had counselling, and though it was extremely helpful, I started to feel uneasy at the idea of chatting about my problems, potentially for years, if I chose to. Like, really… When would I be fixed?

For me, life =  Experiences + reactions to those experiences. The only power I have is choosing how I react to them. So, though I might have uncomfortable emotional reactions, I can choose to a) accept these emotions, instead of resisting them, and b) not interpret my thoughts as the Solid Gold Truth. Whatever your problems may be, (diagnosed or not), they don’t equate to you being broken. In my own life, it’s been unhelpful to think of mental health problems in this way, particularly when you’re struggling. You are who you are at this moment in time, and you’re doing your best. Brains are plastic. People can, and do, change.

  If you follow my music, it probably won’t come as a big surprise to know that I’ve dealt with mental health issues for a long time. There have been 3 things that have helped me decrease periods of depression though. For anyone in the same position, I hope this helps.

1. Meditation

This changed my mind + my life. I started doing meditation in 2013 after Electra Heart had ended. I was burnt out and desperate for change. I took no classes, read no books - just looked at a 5 minute explanation on the internet. I didn’t even do it every day. Just 20 minutes in the morning or evening. In the beginning, I felt a little dubious about the idea of “wasting 20 whole minutes” on meditation each day. But here’s the thing: Meditation is like a vacuum for your mind. It sucks up all the dust and rubbish thoughts. I can easily waste 20 minutes looking at something on the internet that I’ll never think about again, so I can invest 20 minutes in something that changes the quality of my life. This blog described Meditation as “one of the best responses to modern information overload”. I truly believe it can be an antidote to our digital lives.

2. Exercise

I know, I know. When you’re depressed, the last thing you want to do is go outside INTO THE REAL WORLD! But if you’re bottom-of-the-barrel depressed, you have nothing to lose. For years I loved to declare that I “didn’t have a body that could run”  (in order to escape ever having to actually run). But when I start meditation, the negative thoughts about myself decreased and I started to want good things for myself. The motive of exercising was not to lose weight, so it had a different energy to it.

3. Identifying With Thoughts

The reality is, I still deal with depression, but my reaction to it is different. I am more aware of its mechanisms so I don’t take my thoughts as seriously. I try not to identify with a thought and interpret it as truth just because it came into my mind. Why? Because the way I think and respond to events is largely based on my past experiences, so how can I know that my thoughts are my own and not coloured by my past? This is why I don’t always trust my thoughts, particularly when they are of the negative variety. A book I hugely recommend on this is called “Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle. 

I’ve wanted to write this post for a long time for people who struggle with similar issues. Our culture has taught us to see happiness as some kind of end goal, but for me, the best thing about it is that it doesn’t stick around forever. Human beings need to experience some level of suffering in order to evolve emotionally and consciously. And though depression often feels like you’re stuck, or stagnating, it can also be a healthy way of your mind telling you that something isn’t quite right, and that it’s in the process of changing. We tend to view sadness as something unnatural, or negative, but perhaps viewing it as a necessary process might help us accept the low periods, and move through them more easily.

Before writing my last album, I honestly thought that I had just been born unhappy and that depression was a permanent part of me. I don’t believe that anymore. When I was writing ‘FROOT’ I felt like I was kissing goodbye to a big chapter of my life. That portion of my youth was heart-splitting and lonely at times, but it was also dazzling and beautiful. And that’s how life is for a lot of us. If only I’d known all those years that it was just part of being human.

Flint (barely) standing upright with Jack in the room and then slumping down with exhaustion once he’s gone 😭😭

Success is the best revenge.

So I work professionally as a living statue in a fairly busy venue. I know, weird, but it’s a living.

Anyhow, last year, this new girl on the scene with a different act decided to get really territorial with me. The spot I’ve been using for five years is prime turf and she wanted it. At first, I tried to be nice. I would let her know when I was going on break and tried to be a team player. Unfortunately, this performer had different ideas. Whenever I was in “her spot” she would climb on top of me, like ten feet away and try to bully me off. She would even set up in front of me and use her costumes wings to block my sight lines.

Now, if you’ve never busked before in a contracted atmosphere, this is a BIG no no. We are usually really respectful of each other and maintain a distance. We try to create an entertaining environment not a competition. This bitch decided she was the only one who mattered and didn’t care if she gave me anxiety attacks with her nonsense.

Anyway, skip forward a year. It’s a whole new season and I’m desperately trying to not let my anxiety over this chick wreck my attitude. So I got the best revenge I could. I worked my ass off. Never left that spot alllllll day long. She kept walking by but there was no way to get in front of me without causing a scene.
Nine hours later, I’m exhausted, hungry, and dehydrated but I’m $500 richer and she’s stewing in frustration somewhere. Take that! Maybe I’ll do it again tomorrow.
