On Synesthesia

On synesthete.org, there is a test you can take to prove that you have synesthesia, scientifically. For all the marbles. No more can anyone can doubt you, like they often do. It is an empirical test that can quantify if you are making up your “ability” or if you really do have the rare, neurological condition. The test is simple. Pick what kinds of synesthesia you have, and then choose what color is associated with whatever character/attribute appears on the screen. Below is a letter I wrote to the admin of this site, after attempting to take the Synesthesia Battery.

Poll: Your Experience With News Media

Early this morning, I made a comment about a politician on the TV in the communal kitchen at my work place. The comment was nothing political and was (mostly) just a passing comment. One of my smart, middle-aged coworkers immediately responded to me, “Oh, I don’t watch the news. Every time I turn on the news it just makes me angry. I have better things to do with my time.”

She is completely correct in her assessment of the news. While this is understandable, the fact that it is so easy to relate to suggests that the news media has lost legitimacy in our eyes, among other things.

So I wanted to know, what happens when you engage with the news media? What emotions surface?

Saawariya Meets Mykki Blanco

Sometimes I do these crazy music videos that take disparate styles of music and dance and stitch them together.

I couldn’t resist doing it again. So, in the tradition of finding synchronicity in disparate mediums, please enjoy the latest installment of my insanity. Warning: Explicit Content.
