transfriendly jobs




 i’ve been doing research about jobs/companies that are accepting of trans and the like since i’m going job hunting again next month, and i found this list, which lists trans-friendly businesses. it links to this page, a directory for employers.

tagging so people can see it, i figured this might come in handy for some people!


Holy shit, something that actually deserves “boosting”.

Incredible. Ellen, I love you. To my fellow nominees, I’m so proud to share this journey with you. I’m in awe and have so much respect for you all. To the Academy, thank you.

In 1971, in Bossier City Louisiana, there was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child. She was a high school dropout and a single mom, but somehow she managed to make a better life for herself and her children. She encouraged her kids to be creative and work hard and do something special. That girl was my mother. I just want to say ‘I love you, mom. Thank you for teaching me to dream.’

To my brother Shannon, the best big brother in the world: Thank you so much for sharing this insane adventure that is Thirty Seconds to Mars and for being my best friend.

To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to to say we are here, and as you struggle to make your dreams happen and live the impossible, we are thinking of you tonight.

This is for the 36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS. And to those of you who have ever felt injustice because of who you are and who you love, I stand here in front of the world with you and for you.

Thank you so much, and good night.

So much love for his speech.

Apparently someone was tweeting him photos tagged Pip and Lindsay so that's a bit off but hey clearly he liked it

Cool. Thanks. Still hilarious and awesome, knowing as we do that it’s a manip.





Noel’s new Twitter profile. [x]

Also known as: Omelette has forgotten the basic principles of breathing.

I’m having such a crap day, and I was walking around like Noel in “Childmen,” muttering “nothing here appeals to me, nothing here means anything to me…” and then THIS! And now I’m sitting here grinning like an idiot. 

Do you think he knows it’s a manip? Because in my head, this pose is so normal that he just thinks it’s a great shot of them.

I wondered that, too. They can’t possibly remember EVERY single photoshoot they’ve ever done together, and it does seem like a believable enough pose for them that it just might not occur to him that it’s a manip.

This is too hilarious for words. I don’t think it matters if he knew. The fact remains he either googled himself, googled the two of them/Boosh or went trolling through fansites looking at photos.




First of all, wow they have a fucking huge flat. I live in a regular house and I’m pretty sure the top floor of the flat alone is twice the size of my place. At first i wondered how they could afford it since they just run a little knick knack shop, but they’re also in a band, Naboo seems pretty involved in shamanistic black market dealings, Bollo appears to be a successful DJ and Vince is implied to do part time modelling work, so I guess it’s not all that unlikely they could afford a place like that.

Also a large flat is probably the last thing we should be thinking about when arguing about the realism on this show.

Ok, so i was writing a fanfiction and I couldn’t figure out if Vince and Howard shared a room or if they had separate rooms as you rarely see their bedrooms, and some episodes have them saying stuff like “Our room” and others have them saying “My room”, so i pieced together a partial map of the top floor of their flat. It’s not to scale and very incomplete, obviously. Most of the evidence is from The Party, the only episode we really have any indication of where their rooms are. Just note, the layout of the flat is pretty inconsistent between episode to episode; it looked like the show seemed to add doors and add space depending on what they wanted to do in that particular episode.

When Howard is getting ready he comes out after getting dressed from the room at the end of the hall near the stairs. There are two other doors there, probably Naboo and Bollo’s room, or maybe storage areas for their music equipment? 

Then when we see Howard knock on a door looking for Vince at the party, Vince is behind the two double doors nearer to the living area, still getting dressed, and he explodes out of the room later on.

We don’t see much inside either rooms except for Vince’s flowery wallpaper, so it’s doubtful Vince is in a bathroom, indicating that was in fact his room, unless it’s the room where he stores all his clothes and make up.

Later on, Howard points his room out to the party guests and refers to it as “his room”, and in the deleted scenes he’s shown inviting Pencil Case Girl inside seconds before she’s revealed to be Old Gregg in disguise. Vince is nowhere to be seen, probably off with the trendy girl, but it’s still doubtful Howard would invite a girl into his room if he shared the room with someone.

So, here’s my theory; they do have separate rooms; but the big bedroom Vince sleeps in is more of a storage room where he keeps his clothes and makeup, and it’s got a bed in there too for when he brings home a girl or boy.

Howard’s room is his room, but it has a second bed in it, where Vince usually sleeps. In season one at the zoo they’re shown sleeping together close on the floor despite the room having a couch one of them could have taken, so apparently they like sleeping next to each other. Also Vince seems like the type to have trouble sleeping alone.

In conclusion; Vince and Howard have separate rooms, but they usually choose to sleep together.

Mystery solved in the most adorable way possible.

I checked, and the room labeled Howard’s here is (also) Naboo’s room. As seen in Nanageddon and especially in The Priest and the Beast because he walks out of it in the middle of the night. So does Bollo, in the same minute or so. The four of them then go back into it and you can see the banister behind them. I would have said you can tell it’s Naboo’s room because of the Rudi and Spider poster, which is shown in Naboo’s room in numerous episodes, and is also the door to his magical safe with the book of black magic and Houdini’s diary in it, but It’s in a different position behind Howard in this screencap, which changes things. BUT in Party, a couple of seconds after this screencap was taken, you can clearly see the top of the stairs and the phone (the phone which Howard then answers to let Lester in, who then WALKS UP SAID STAIRS)! This means Naboo/Bollo and Howard’s room alternate, and it also means that the hanging chair Vince is sitting on moves, as in The Priest and the Beast Howard has all his recording gear set up.

Do with this information what you will.

Yup. Since Party is the ONLY episode that talks about Howard and Vince possibly having separate rooms, and it’s an ep where something special is happening that would make them each want their own space (Vince needs the space and privacy to primp and get ready, while Howard would naturally want a NON-shared room if he’s hoping to pull that night), and also because the room Howard claims as his there is very clearly established as Naboo’s room in all the other episodes where it appears… I tend to think that Party is the outlier, and an unusual circumstance, rather than a reflection of the way things usually are. Plus, only two episodes earlier, Howard and Vince talk about crimping in THEIR room, in the night times. Although it’s possible that Howard moved into a separate room after getting fired during the Crack Fox escapade, there’s still more consistent support in the series as a whole for Howard and Vince sharing a room than there is for separate ones. (And too, like you said, they made some tweaks to the apartment set when they brought it back, including taking out a partial wall of the kitchen, so that Vince could more easily make his entrance… most of the tweaks and inconsistencies there are just about making it easier to make stuff happen in that particular episode. The set changes very little from episode to episode in the second series, though.)

Then again, one of the great things about the Boosh and its consistent inconsistency is that it’s incredibly flexible, so it’s often easy to interpret in a way that supports your particular head canon or story needs! I love that about the Boosh. With few definitive answers, we get lots of room to play and speculate. Almost anything is possible!

(Oh, and: as to how they afford that flat? Well, I’ve always tended to believe that Naboo OWNS the building, since he owns the shop below and is also established as Vince and Howard’s landlord. Plus, he’s hundreds of years old and has the thriving shady sideline in potions and pot and who knows what else that you mentioned, so it’s not a stretch to think he could afford it. We know from Priest and the Beast that Howard and Vince are chronically late on the rent, so it’s very doubtful that they could afford a flat like this on their own, but since Naboo is also their friend, he allows them some liberties another landlord wouldn’t. Then again, maybe their chronic lateness on rent is why they’re working in the shop in the third series—so Naboo can at least get cheap labor out of them, if not regular rent.)

I made a map of their flat awhile back! :thumb244849126:
