Trent Frederic scores a shorthanded goal to put Wisconsin up 2-0 against Notre Dame. Wisconsin would go on to beat Notre Dame 5-0, ending ND’s 16 game win streak (longest in the NCAA in 6 seasons), and handing them their first Big 10 loss of the season. Frederic has scored both of the Badgers’ shorthanded goals this season (01.21.18).

Achievement Hunter AKA The Six Gayest Straight Dudes You’ll Ever Meet.

Hey, podcast people. Are you looking for the next audio drama to fall in love with? Are you a fan of weird but heartfelt stories? Do you have an inexplicable passion for public transit? Are you listening to Greater Boston yet? Do you like 

  • stories with unique and unusual premises?
  • audio dramas that use the medium of sound to their advantage in creative ways?
  • amazing soundtracks?
  • ghosts, maybe?
  • innovation in terms of format and storytelling that is so clever and well-crafted and fun that it fills my little writer’s heart with joy every episode?
  • mild surreality and “weird fiction”?
  • (or just regional gothic memes?)
  • Dunkin Donuts?
  • slice-of-life stories that still build a great central plot?
  • mysterious messages from tuna-eating corporate executives?
  • deep sea exploration?
  • LGBTQIA+ characters? (cranky lesbian moms! gay characters! ace characters!)
  • political intrigue?
  • human beings named “Extinction Event”?
  • ensemble casts of incredibly well-developed characters with their own unique arcs and motivations as well as complex and interesting interpersonal relationships?
  • Molasses???

Then this could be the podcast for you! You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You’ll probably get way too attached to a dead guy’s Google Calendar! Seriously, try Greater Boston! It’s an amazing show that’s not receiving anywhere near enough love around here and it deserves more attention.

Guess who just got rejected for not one, not two, but three jobs!

That’s right. All of the workplaces I applied to have officially turned me down.

Starbucks ran out of space, which I totally understand.

My local pool turned me down, as they were only accepting people who were certified to teach lessons. Again, I can’t help that, totally forgiveable.

But then… a small Halloween Store officially turned me down for being trans. Like, seriously? This is 20-heckin-17, people. They wanted me to use my birthname and wear the female uniform (which happens to be a form-fitting dress). So I told them no, and they immediately said there was no chance of having a trans worker in their crew. How messed up is that?

I dunno guys… I wish I could live off commissions but the income isn’t steady enough… If you get a chance, could you maybe take a look over on that page? I’m officially between jobs for who knows how long, and I hate being so desperate.

I’m going to attempt to recap Duchovny in Boston day (February 22, 2017.) Warning: this could get long and sappy because it’s 3 AM and I’m just brain dumping. Under a cut…

Love me, not just because you feel sorry for me and you think wasting my time is great. I want you to love me for the way I look at you and smile, don’t look at me that you can brake even more.
