Yeah, I'm sorry to be one of those people who jump on a thread to express an opposing opinion, and I do love you, Loopy! XXXX I just HATED the movie because Queen is in my heart, soul, lungs, kidneys and pancreas! And I'm glad YOU loved it, if it turns you onto Queen, then that's a great thing! I feel the same way about any Beatles bio. Although I didn't HATE "Yesterday."
Cheers and a pleasant Sunday to you, and all. "Spread your winnnngs and flyyyy away!"

I genuinely had no idea he was bisexual before the film, so it's an important film for me on a personal level because it's made me feel more comfortable with the idea of coming out to my friends and eventually family.

I know it's sacrificed authenticity for story which is gross and that's upsetting to a lot of fans but I feel like it's opening the doors for more accurate gritty representations, I remember hearing that was why SBC left the project, hopefully if there are enough ticked off fans then they'll unite and be able to fund the portrayal that they deserve

I'm glad you felt comfortable coming out to the people you care about.

As far as I am concerned, if Roger and Brian are happy with the artistic liberties taken with the story, then I am happy with them. I wouldn't pee on SBC if he was on fire, so I'm glad he left.

There's tons of 'gritty' documentaries. If somebody wants to make yet another queen documentary then that is fine, but documentaries don't usually make for good cinema. I also don't think it is right to make money/spectacle out of a dead person's personal failings, which is basically the idea of 'gritty' or 'realistic' cinema imo. ... biopics that aren't accurate and can portray the person as positively as they like, though, that's fine to me, just a bit of fun. I get that a lot of other people don't feel that way and that's fine, of course~

I'm actually going to see Q+AL in June, looking forwards to that so much. I'm in the process of making Brian, Roger and Adam dolls to send to them as gifts too.

Yeah, I used to get all disappointed and mad when biopics of my favorite celebrities were painfully inaccurate, but I've mellowed slightly in my old age and now just get slightly annoyed.

Hai guys, remember me?

I've not been posting that much because I needed a bit of a break mentally but I'm getting back into it again now. =3

Right now I'm dealing with some tooth problems and am gonna need some work done; not sure how I manage to be the only person alive that gains weight off a semi-liquid diet, but there you go. =p

Also, something I'm sure my fellow fat-writers/artists will sympathise with; my mother keeps asking to see my writing/comics/art and I'm frantically attempting to find some that aren't, you know, fat fetish stuff, lol. I don't really draw anymore, but I've been considering sharing some of my drawings here some time~ I can't share the writing because fanfic.

Boys, plz regale me of tales of you being fat and cute, I need something to get me through the toothache!

The coincidence of this is shocking: out of nowhere and for no known reason a big chunk of one of my molars flaked off last night. Calling the dentist tomorrow morning when they open. The piece is all bagged up and ready for inspection. (Thankfully no discomfort. Just disbelief and that very sharp edge.)

I’ve read of others, so you’re not the only one, but the few of you who exist are assuredly at the Advanced Awesome level.

(Written stories only; i can’t draw) Never stopped me, except it’s usually me excitedly sharing with her rather than her asking. There’s plenty enough going on in terms of character development and plot line stuff apart from the nitty-gritty of fattening/fatsex that it’s easy to share.

Oh wow, I hope your tooth gets fixed soon! A similar thing happened to me when I was about 18, my back tooth just started crumbling when I was brushing it. I kept wondering why I was spitting out these pearly bits when I brushed my teeth until I cut my tongue.

I've literally put on 2 1/12 pounds in less than a week since my tooth problems started. I guess too much eating biscuits and tea because they are soft. I don't mind, of course, just mildly amused.

I guess for me, I'm very, well, reserved and British when it comes to sharing such things with people. It doesn't help that my mother is quite fatphobic and even more against people that are attracted to fat people. Whenever she would catch me drawing a fat person she would ask me why I'd made them fat, as though I needed some explanation for different body types. I suppose it feels too much like bearing my soul to an unforgiving audience, sharing with her, hah.

@loopytheone

Here’s another one I hope will ease the pain a little. 😊
Ooooh, I recognise that art style, I think I read some of the manga that was from!

Also, I'm getting my tooth pulled out tomorrow, at least one, maybe two. So hopefully these nice things will give me strength!

Oh, your poor mouth! I hope you can get all of that looked at and dealt with soon.

Although whether your mouth or your mother wanting to see your work is the greater pain in your life right now, I don't know. Both sound hard to live with in the long run.

I don't promise much on the fat and cute front, but I'll try. I recently started buying clothes in 2XL, and the ground didn't swallow me up, and nobody has said anything about how fat I'm looking (to myself, I'm definitely looking quite a bit fatter). My wife is probably also up around her heaviest weight, and with age/hormone changes more of it has gone to her belly than ever before. I've discovered that if she is cuddled up to me in bed and I can make her laugh, I can feel her belly quake against me, and that is just the best feeling.

Tad, always happy to hear from you! =D

Thankfully, my mother will eventually forget as long as I keep my mouth shut. I hope. I'm placated her by drawing a picture of her dog. Due to health reasons, she is eventually going to have to find out my weight to pass to the doctor as well and whilst it hasn't changed much and wont surprise them (gone done a little, even) it's about 3 stone heavier than she insists I must be. She's 150 lbs and tries to insist her clothes will fit me even when she knows they wont. Strange woman.

Awww, well, 2XL is the size my other half wears so it is obviously the best size to be, congrats! I've been struggling with coming to terms that most of my recent weight has gone to my belly as well, and it's always reassuring to hear first hand how much people love that. That's so cute about making her laugh, I know when I'm laying down and I laugh, it jiggles basically all of me, and is now my boyfriend's favourite way of making me jiggle, hah!

I read through all this thread and I wanted to jump in on one of the previous topics. The last movie I saw in theaters was "Walk the Line" back in I think 2006. In my opinion, Phoenix did not sound at all like Johnny Cash. Maybe it was a good film cinematically, but it left me very disappointed as a Cash fan. just blah. At least I got popcorn lol.
I didn't see "Bohemian Rhapsody" because that band never really impressed me. I can appreciate some of the trivia and technical work they did (did you know that for the lyrics of "Bohemian Rhapsody" Brian, Freddy and Roger recorded their lyrics for ten to twelve hours a day, resulting in over 180 overdubs? That the piano used was the same one the Beatles had used in "Abbey Road?) but their music never spoke to me.
I have lots and lots and lots of music trivia and useless factoids in my head.

Okay, update everybody!

I went to an emergency dentist and they gave me antibiotics. I got an appointment with my regular dentist the week after and it wasn't fantastic news and I've been in a bit of a slump because of it.

The top left tooth that was infected is going to have to come out, as this is the second time this has happened after lots of work and attempts to fill and fix it. But on the right side, she says I need to have two of the top teeth out and maybe one of the bottom ones, which I was not expecting because they don't cause me much problem.

Trouble is, I'm really phobic of dentists and three molars out would be more than I can cope with without sedation. I can't take oral sedatives, gas and air makes me projectile vomit so violently the specialist refuses to give it me again, and they wont give me IV sedation because I'm fat. Whiiiiich means I'm going to have to go to the hospital and have a general anaesthetic, which I'm pretty scared about. Mostly the hospital part, though I will have my mother with me the whole time.

Ironically, my teeth don't really hurt much at the minute. Eating soft foods means the inflammation has died down to almost nothing on both sides and there is no pain unless I eat or touch them. Unfortunately, it is not sustainable to live off tea and biscuits forever.

I'll be honest, I don't know much of Johnny Cash at all and I never watched that film so I don't have an opinion on in, though I'm interested to hear your thoughts.

I did know that about the recording of Bohemian Rhapsody, yes. I understand certain types of music not appealing to you though. For the life of me, I can't understand the appeal of the type of music they play in nightclubs. I think it is fascinating though that there is something wired into our brains that doesn't let us appreciate certain types of music, whilst other people can. I wonder how that works, biologically?

That mouth stuff sounds horrible, Loopy :( FWIW, I've had genearl anesthetic for teeth removal a couple of times and it was OK (once in the hospital when I was a young teen, because my top eye teeth came in sideways and had to be surgically removed -- I'd make a terrible vampire these days), and once in this millennium at a dental surgeon's office to have a couple of wisdom teeth out. Not my favorite experience, but in the end quite underwhelming.

Ooof, that’s a lot to deal with at one time! Thankfully so far i’ve only had to deal with one major tooth reconstruction at a time, and that’s intense enough.

Have you had general anesthesia before? Unfortunately i’ve had it several times (never for dental work). Fortunately each time the (different) anesthesiologist has been very good, so i’ve been totally out quickly, and recovered as they planned/intended/expected. Last time was a year and a few days ago, actually.

Avoiding hospitals when possible is a good idea.

Have you ever pursued mental/emotional health work related to dental phobia? I didn’t do that specifically, though other mental/emotional work for my depression and anxiety and other issues has wound up helping outside of the direct issues, including letting me be calmer as my dentist is blasting away what had been one of my teeth with his drill.

My thing: stress fracture of a long-ago filled tooth, due to thermal cycling and the significantly different coefficients of expansion of the metal filling amalgam and the natural tooth. Had part 1 of a crown job Monday a week ago, and because my dentist’s office is awesome, they were able to move up my routine cleaning 2 weeks earlier, so i got that done at the same appointment. Part 2 is tomorrow. Good thing i’m getting this done in the Crown City (nickname for Pasadena, California) 😆 .

Wild guess: pattern matching related to tribal signaling (communications) for forming and maintaining clans and excluding Others, many millennia ago. “That’s our song! That’s our group!” If these traits get passed down in DNA, that could explain it, and the original meaning would be long lost.
