You’re just making me want to do it more… So thanks :)

So last year at some point I posted on this site how I identify (mostly) as nonbinary. And recently had been getting some comments… You know the type…. bible verses…. God… Abomination..  blah blah blah. (I’ve since deleted them, it’s my blog, I can do that) But it’s so strange to me how people start saying all this weird stuff, and some of them get outright angry, all because I sometimes do not conform to wearing only articles of clothing that belong to my assigned gender.

One thing good about all this, is it woke me up to the fact that I have been ignoring this side of me for a good part of 2020, and people posting ignorant comments, both here on as well as on my YouTube channel, has inspired me to bust out my makeup, buy some new girly clothes, and just start doing some videos on YouTube fully dressed in clothing usually attributed to being ‘female’ rather than male. I’m full on now babes, and I’m not coming back.

Though I think the first time I ever dressed as a girl was when I was a small child. It is something I have always enjoyed. But many times before recently I would only use bits and pieces here and there publicly, like a little eyeliner here, a little women’s top there, but never until this week have I gone fully in ‘drag’ for lack of a better term, on my YouTube channel.

Contrary to what you may think by reading this, I’m not big into labels. I don’t get hung up on pronouns, or even what to call myself and my personal lifestyle. I only said nonbinary before because I felt it most closely represented what I feel. I guess another term could be ‘gender nonconforming’. But that’s just more labels. You can just call me Justin… Or Demonic Sweaters.

Anyway, here’s a collection of some of my recent videos of me being me….

So anyway… thanks for the unintentional inspiration mean commentors, you’ve pushed into being more myself than ever 🙂

How To Make a Cheap and Easy DIY Internal Dual Zone Piezo Drum Trigger

I found this diagram at https://www.pinterest.com/pin/559501953700910845/ and t worked great for me!

Get 7% off digital distribution on Distrokid https://distrokid.com/vip/demonicsweaters. Piezos https://amzn.to/3hOc7wN, gaffer’s tape https://amzn.to/32FxKct, output jacks https://amzn.to/32MmpHq, L brackets https://amzn.to/3bbx56r. You can probably find wire, sponges, and anything else you need laying around the house. Though the total cost of buying all of these items is more than $5, it will allow you to make 6 of them since most of the items come in bulk, and it is still very cheap, so in reality one trigger is probably less than $5 if you’re good at math and want to figure out because I am not. Either way it’s cheap and works. Did you ever want to know how to build your own drum trigger? How about a dual zone trigger that mounts on the inside of the drum? It is really not that hard. Though there’s some videos on YouTube of people making ones WAY MORE COMPLICATED than this one. This one will work, and does a good job once you get it configured.

Peter Gabriel Genesis

This classic Genesis performance with Peter Gabriel is the winner of the internet

I’ve seen some good old Genesis footage in the past, but none of them even came close to this amazingly clear remastered video that originally aired on French TV in 1974. Peter Gabriel’s performance here is the stuff of nightmares, but it is also absolutely mind blowing and mesmerizing.

I love musical theatrics, and Peter’s take on Genesis was so amazing and creative, there was really nothing else like it. He’s like some bizarre acid trip children’s TV villain. Watch this on full screen with headphones in 4k and you’ll be changed forever.
