It does not have a name but nerdy and geeky rock has been around since Buddy Holly. In the late 70's you had spastic groups Talking Heads, Devo, XTC , Morrissey and They Might Be Giants in the mid late 80's set the stage for a lot of geeky indie rock (although a lot of of has the ring of a marketin...

Good Luck. You are doing somethings right in the body language social hell known as interviewing to be getting these opportunities.

Lol, Do you really think an NT would desire an autism diagnosis? Depending on your mothers age, she may be bewildered by the "if it is not normal it is crazy" belief common in the 1950's and 60's. Mental health was and is taboo. I have also noticed that the Aspergers mom can be very rigid in denial...

But be realistic, it's a neurotypical world, and a humane cure would be the best thing, realistically, that could happen to us. When I don't have kids to raise, and I can afford to risk my life, health, and functionality reaching for a star, I just might do the same. If one wants a "cure" that pers...

Sometimes it seems to me that the modern generation wants to give everyone a diagnosis instead of acepting that there are different personality traits and that everyone has his strengths and weaknesses. Oh, that old chestnut: "Asperger Syndrome is just a social construct," (AKA "Nerd Disease"). Wel...

I understand what you mean. I avoided the discos like the plague because they were loud, flashy, extremely social - everything that I wasn't. Can you see David Lee Roth relating to a quiet Aspergian? He once said, "The reason the critics love Elvis Costello and not Van Halen is because they look li...

I think the most NT form of music is hard-core classic American rock of the sort Lee Atwater played (look it up). I actually like disco. I always preferred it to most rock. Never went to a disco, though. But you certainly don't have to be NT to dress up. Hard Rock, Glam Metal, same thing. Anyway, i...

Disco The one exception might be Georgio Moroder inventing the Asperien like idea of machines and beat being more important the the singers and songwriters which was quite controversial at the time. But the whole Studio 54 phenomena where you had to where the right clothes or be from an upper echelo...

If someone disagrees with someone else's strongly help opinion, of course it's going to feel like an attack on the person. The person holds that opinion strongly. To disagree with it strongly implies that they're stupid; you are calling them stupid. Do you like being called stupid? This is false; n...

I am not a dog or a cat but human who is prejudged or judged to quickly all to often. As to the original question there are two main paths. 1. Withdraw and probably be too broke too be yourself. I say probably because there are survivalist type where this could work. 2.. Try and "fit in." This this ...
