#10 – Just A Couple of Quick Videos (Link 2)

…And now, something that just outright makes me happy, if nothing else, because:

  1. It’s so damn fun to listen to!
  2. It speaks to me, mainly because Richard O’Brien wrote the song, and performed the majority of the vocals. (Remember, friends, Shock Treatment is NOT a sequel, or a prequel to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but more of an “equal”, so I’ve been told over the past 20-odd years.)
  3. Jessica Harper, while taking a bit of time getting used to her in the role of Janet (Weiss) Majors, had a pretty incredible singing voice for the time this film was made. I really liked her performance in the earlier Phantom Of The Paradise film.)
    (omg omg omg she has a website, and a blog, and she still sings and looks wonderful, and she cooks, and writes books, and… and… and… and I’m gushing over someone I’m barely familiar with…. Pardon me while I quietly tiptoe off to explode. ^_^;)
  4. They’re singing about the quintessential “Swiss Army Knife” of every girl’s wardrobe, the celebrated LBD – Little Black Dress! (Even I have one! I should show you one of my pictures of me wearing it sometime! ^_-;)

#9 – Just A Couple Quick Videos (Link 1)

This one was sent to me yesterday morning by Gordon, a friend of mine from Flickr. This short entry, one of a series of three from Charlotte, a.k.a. “karmatic1110” on YouTube, really speaks to me, primarily on my fear and apprehension of seeing how far down the rabbit hole I can go, as far as all things Julie Anne are concerned:

I did mention that I’m still somewhat in the closet, and I’ve been out in public about 15 minutes total, not counting two separate outings driving around town (but not getting out of the car), at about an hour total. I still consider myself “Not ready for prime time” as far as voice, mindset, mannerisms, being able to pass, etc., but we’ll talk more about this later, ok?

Ah, Gordon – You do understand me somewhat – Thanks, my friend.

#8 – A Quick Thought: Working Title Of This Site?

For lack of a better name, and in relation to this “fantastic voyage” that is my life, I’ve christened this site “Who Is Julie Anne?” for the time being.

However, as I go on, or for those who talk with me on a regular basis on Flickr or elsewhere, I wonder if there’s a more appropriate name for this site/blog, either with or without my name attached to the title?

Just a quick thought while I run off and take care of some things, and of course, get back to my big post prior to this.

Ta-ta for now, my darlings! ^_^

#7 – Working My Way Through Building Out This Site…

A new day, a new entry, and a new category. ^_^; (So nice, yet so important, that I’ve made it a Sticky post for a while.)

Today: Struggling with internal and external conflicts, in regards to my online manifestation of myself.
(Bear with me, this is a draft-in-progress, and may be tweaked or edited in the final version. Don’t worry, the link will stay the same, I’m sure.)

This is more or less, as the title states, an exercise in becoming more familiar with my content management solution of choice (Yay, WordPress!), as well as being “comfortable in my clothes,” so to speak, at least in my online presentation of myself. Since actual days where I break out the makeup, wig, clothes and shoes are whenever I can arrange them (Sometimes on very short notice!),  I primarily express and further explore my femme side online, either via Flickr, Facebook, or here.

#5 – After A Brief Intermission…

…I’ve returned to do some gradual updates here, since I’ve got a lot to talk about.

For now, I’ve done a minor update to the machinery behind the scenes here, and took care of an issue that may have caused issues with posts not displaying properly when clicking the “Click here to read…” link. That’s been taken care of. Sorry if it drove you up the wall. ^_^;

#4 – Links Going Up, and… “The Story…”

A few for now, more to come soon. I’m concentrating on sites I’ve visited and like, as well as products I use, and eventually, places I’ve been to.

Friends? Yes, if it’s cool with them.

Links to other places I’m on beside here? Does a cat nap during the day? You bet there’s going to be links to my points of presence on LiveJournal, Facebook, Twitter, my original Flickr gallery. (Don’t worry, there will most likely be a few hand-picked photos of me on here as well, just as long as I’m satisfied with them, and that I’m looking my best in them.)

I’ve also posted my back story, since I’ve more or less posted it on Flickr, and I should at least de-cloak some of my posts on my LiveJournal, since I started up this site.

#3 – Soft Grand Opening – Still Fine-Tuning Things Around Here…

Hmm? Oh, my… Hello there! You’ve found me, and my “house” is a mess! ^_^; (But then again, so is my bedroom where I’m putting all this together, so what else is new?)

Stay tuned, I’m customizing this theme, and have plans to put some actual content here very soon! Feel free to take a look around. If I get a moment, I’ll be glad to serve you some peanut butter cookies and fresh-squeezed lemonade, made with love with lemons from the tree in my backyard!

Enjoy! xoxo…

#2 – To Do List (As of the wee hours of June 24, 2010)

  • Secure a domain name to point here, and park it on the Network R3 server…
  • Start putting up actual content, divided by categories
  • Put up links to my points of presence on Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, LiveJournal, ???
  • Put up links of interest to me and others (Fast tracking links to Michelle Phan’s YouTube makeup tutorials – Yes, even TG folks can stand to pick up some pointers… ^_^; )

Too tired, staying up way too late to accomplish my hopes, my dreams, my nice shiny new home here…
