Larry loves music and I am proud to be the impetus with pal, Tracy pushing the beat of advocacy behind my artistic ramblings on the canvas and keyboard for partner-in- creatively-pushing-aesthetic-boundaries-crime host writer for the multitude of talented voices from the pop and folk world, J.Ralph, composing a film score which positions our disability as speechless individuals alongside the search for a voice experienced by kindred-in-spirit musicians.
Personally, this linking of art and disability moves the debate about competence from the IQ charts to the iTunes popularity charts. Looking weird, immersed in their own worlds, myths about autism are vacating the playlists of people in society and are being replaced by movie-inspired mixes of profound intelligence-driven songs.
Larry and Tracy laptop their thoughts and ideas to the iPod generation. Putting pictures to our experiences of traveling the globe were Gerry Wurzburg and her talented film naturally-attuned-to-autistic-quirks crew. And mining new veins of lit with positively shining with ah hah moments of appreciation for the power of personal voice was J. Ralph and only the most dynamic group of singers ever assembled to express autistic meltdowns in public places.
Party down with the soundtrack, pop popcorn for the movie, and work your typing fingers over, commenting on our mostly coherent ramblings in our blogs.

Posting your thoughts online is a little bit like me shaving openly on camera in the movie. Plastic surgery would make me actor-like in looks but it might meddle with my essential, with blemishes, physical character. In the same way participating in paring down my laden down with practically incomprehensible to the average Joe on the street, far more than loudly mouthed Sarah Palin could ever make sense of, language is potentially pouring water on the flames of my creativity.
Operating as a lever to perk society’s interest in autistic perspectives on life and lopsided towards burgers and fries diets, I look out on the plateau of dryly kept ideas about disability and flood it with social, climate changing ideas about people who travel differently across the landscape of life but want to get to the same place as other everyday citizens on this planet. Mapping Tracy and my less-than-straight route across this landscape, lent moral support like Nepalese sherpas by sturdy legged-by-running, Pascal and Harvey, is our film. Looking at our film can get you passage on our long journeys across continents but lots more luggage of insights will be needed in order to imagine what our emotional and old psychological tests no longer applicable, intellectual, keep on truckin’ travels are like.
Naturally, Larry is speaking to a choir of Facebook fans right now but Tracy and I are really hoping for a well-stocked with Larry’s favorite beer and Tracy’s, more populated with bopping-muscles-up vitamins, chocolate milk, tour bus so please pass the word so that meeting us in person will require Obama to approve the use of the mall in Washington to accommodate all of our fans.

Looking at our Facebook page, I owe a positively gargantuan debt of gratitude to all of our more like followers of alternative than classic rock, fans for their unswerving faith in much of mine and Tracy’s powerfully expressed messages about the importance of including and accepting us so that once the curtain of negative attitudes comes down, only totally raptured faces of belief in competence will remain.
Most of appearing at movie lots-of-popcorn-served showings is about looking like songwriters without the guitar, nesting comfortably in a loosely draped over one’s stomach, lapelled jacket, smiling with open, not full of hors d’oeuvres, mouth and meeting people with appreciation for coming. Knowledge of pressing pants with a rather hot iron is not necessary nor is placing makeup on, only made for road to mostly leftist side of communication documentaries, faces. Of more importance is that people pick out pearls of wisdom from our potentially bottomless pits of experience about loosely-defined-as-social-disability autism.
Oddly enough people like Tracy and I want to make headlines like once nothing, now something politicians, just elected on a platform of negativity. The difference is that our platform presents the blueprint for a positive America, free of prejudice and “don’t look now, here’s what I can do” in the future attitude.

To the fans:
Plentiful sessions of picture-taking of handsome Green Mountain boys, Tracy and Larry can’t compare to all the words of encouragement we have received from all of you fans of over-the-top expressions of wise guy intelligence. Thanks. You give us the inspiration to keep lightning rods of language popping out on our film star journeys.
