Birthday, Community, and Lesbians: maireddog: Mark Ashton died on this day, the 11th of February, in 1987. Mark was born on the 19th of May, 1960 in Oldham, but grew up in Portrush, Northern Ireland. He moved to London in 1978, where he worked in a bar in King’s Cross, in drag as a barmaid with a blonde beehive. In the 1980s, he volunteered for London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard, campaigned for CND and joined the Communist Party, becoming the first gay secretary of the Young Communist League. Though Mark transformed the Party’s approach to LGBT rights, he and Mike Jackson, who he’d met through Switchboard, wanted to be active as openly gay people. They formed Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM) when they collected donations for miners on strike at 1984 Gay Pride. In the evening of 1984 Pride, a miner spoke at a rally, and they were struck by the similarities between the two struggle, of LGBT rights and the Miners’ Strike. Having collected about £150, they advertised a meeting in Capital Gay. 11 people turned up and from the meeting they made a leaflet to launch LGSM - the leaflet was accepted except with an amendment to ‘one in ten miners is gay.’ As LGSM, they supported the miners as lesbian and gay people. At the second meeting, they decided to focus on one community, of the Dulais Valley, as one of the members, Hugh Williams, was from there. They then met David (Dai) Donovan, who also had thought through the similarities of their struggles and how LGSM could help. A month later, 27 lesbians and gay men, arrived at Onllwyn village in Dulais Valley. Other than some hostility (and confusion towards vegetarianism), they experienced warmth, friendship and solidarity. LGSM raised £20,000 for families of miners on strike, and based on The Sun writing that “a group of perverts” were “supporting the pits,” they organised the Pits and Perverts concert in December, 1984, headlined by Bronski Beat. The miners marched with LGSM at Gay Pride in 1985. Mark was admitted to hospital on 30th January, 1987, and died 12 days later from pneumonia, aged 26. At his memorial, there were banners from the Communist Party, Anti-Apartheid, anti-nuclear, Caribbean and community groups, as well as from LGSM. The Mark Ashton Trust was created to support individuals diagnosed with Aids; Mark is also remembered on the UK Aids Memorial Quilt and by Terrence Higgins Trust, with the Mark Ashton Red Ribbon Fund and a plaque at their London headquarters. In 2017, on what would have been his 57th birthday, he was honoured with a blue plaque above Gay’s The Word bookshop. [Images: 1. Mark Ashton at Gay Pride 1981. 2.

Being Alone, Friends, and Frozone: honestly tho that scene in the incredibles where mr. incredible sees the names of all the old super heroes that used to be his friends /that he knew from Back in the Day and how every one of them has been killed by syndrome is such a chilling scene for so many reasons like for one, everyone he knew is dead at this point and has been killed on the same island he's at now and two, its heartbreaking be that means that almost every hero wanted to try out being a hero again despite the laws against it and wanted to try and help someone out and relive their glory days, only to be straight up murdered like fuck that scene is just so fuckin intense allthesebees Klds, could you lighten upa litt Let speak I think the core of that scene for me is, when you're insane like me and you go through it frame by främe, you can work out that Gazerbeam defeated the omnidroid twice the only super we have enough information to confirm did so. I always wondered about his body in the cave, how and why he got the password... But it makes sense. This thing goes haywire, and goes haywire again? He must have been hella suspicious! So he does what any good superhero would do tries to get to the bottom of what's really happening on Nomanisan Island.

That's disturbingly obsessive behavior, there's no amount of niceness that would stop Syndrome, it was an impossible situation. No amount of nice was going to appease Syndrome, the second he faced any sort of rejection from Mr Incredible he was going to lose it and go supervillain.

Being Alone, Friends, and Frozone: honestly tho that scene in the incredibles where mr. incredible
 sees the names of all the old super heroes that used to be his
 friends /that he knew from Back in the Day and how every
 one of them has been killed by syndrome is such a chilling
 scene for so many reasons
 like for one, everyone he knew is dead at this point and has
 been killed on the same island he's at now and two, its
 heartbreaking be that means that almost every hero wanted to
 try out being a hero again despite the laws against it and
 wanted to try and help someone out and relive their glory
 days, only to be straight up murdered like fuck that scene is
 just so fuckin intense
 allthesebees
 Klds, could you lighten upa litt
 Let
 speak
 I think the core of that scene for me is, when you're insane
 like me and you go through it frame by främe, you can work
 out that Gazerbeam defeated the omnidroid twice the only
 super we have enough information to confirm did so. I always
 wondered about his body in the cave, how and why he got the
 password... But it makes sense. This thing goes haywire,
 and goes haywire again? He must have
 been hella suspicious! So he does what any good superhero
 would do tries to get to the bottom of what's really
 happening on Nomanisan Island. During the process he's
 clearly caught and wounded but has just enough time to get
 himself somewhere he can leave a final message, just
 praying that the next super to come along will find it and break
 the cycle. Gazerbeam is my hero.
 doom-exe
 Incredibles 2 has a lot to live up to
 All of this and..
 I'm just realizing that the name is No Man Is An Island????
 As in, everyone needs someone to depend on and connect
 with, no one is ever completely alone or should act all on their
 own
 Also Gazerbeam probably has X-ray vision-so he not only
 survived long enough to defeat the Omnidroid, he had the
 ability to see Syndrome entering the password.

 Holy guacamole! I should pay more attention, I don't think
 got any of that stuff!
 does anyone think about the fact that now mr. incredibles has
 to live wi the fact that all his friends getting killed by syndrome
 could have been avoided if he had just been nicer to
 syndrome from the beginning
