About Me

Hello! I'm Lauren. I'm 26 and living in Seattle, WA with the BF, a handful of roommates, and two spoiled cats. I dabble in all kinds of artistic endeavors from screenprinting to music-playing, and being bad at some of these things doesn't stop me from doing them anyway. Let's swap some bad art :)

Favorite Crafts

-Screenprinting (see my Etsy link for some examples!)


-Jewelry Making

-Creative Writing

-Duct Tape crafts


Favorite Books

This list could go on forever, so top ten!

  1. A Clockwork Orange, by Anthony Burgess
  2. The Harry Potter Series
  3. Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
  4. The Illuminatus Trilogy, by Robert Anton Wilson
  5. All HP Lovecraft's stuff
  6. The Odd Thomas Series, by Dean Koontz
  7. Spook, by Mary Roach
  8. American Gods, by Neil Gaiman
  9. House of Leaves, by Mark Z. Danielewski
  10. Cat's Cradle, by Kurt Vonnegut

And don't even get me started on comics an graphic novels. I'll pretty much read anything. Big book nerd over here.

Favorite Movies

Horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and foreign films. Especially quirky/comedic ones (intentionally or otherwise, haha.) To get an idea, here's a few:

-Hedwig and the Angry Inch

-Jeunet and Caro films (Amelie, City of the Lost Children, etc.)

-Mars Attacks!

-Cabin in the Woods

-Drag Me To Hell

-Army of Darkness

-Shaun of the Dead


-A Clockwork Orange


-All of Jan Svankmajer's stuff


-Pretty much all zombie films

Favorite Music

I like ALL kinds of music, there's something in every genre that I like. But I mainly listen to metal, punk, industrial and some quieter alt-folky stuff.

Many of the people in my life are musical, including myself. I play drums and accordion (badly) and have a "weird instrument" collection with assorted percussion instruments, concertinas and accordions, a tremoloa, and different ukuleles. All of which I intend to figure out over time. Send me pointers, if you've got some!

Also, my boyfriend is in two awesome bands in the Seattle area:

A God or An Other

Bréag Naofa

So if you're into heavy music check 'em out!

Favorite Television

I don't actually have a TV, but here's some stuff I've streamed off Netflix:

-The Walking Dead


-American Horror Story




-Queer as Folk

-Game of Thrones

-The X-Files

And I have a secret soft spot for Project Runway and RuPaul's drag race :)




-Earth tones


-Studs and spikes


-Tattoos and piercings

-Weird instruments


-The paranormal

-The occult


-Learning languages/cultures



-Bright makeup




-Video Games

-Patterned tights

-Duct Tape

-Not taking anything too seriously


-Christian-themed items

-Most top 40 type music

-Pastel colors

-Most kawaii stuff



I'm a regular old omnivore, and not much of a tea person, but my boyfriend LOVES tea and is a vegan, so feel free to send me any kinds of tea and vegan/vegetarian recipes!


Believe it or not, even though I live in a huge city, there is no post offices on my side of town. I have Tuesdays and Wednesdays off work though, so that's when I can get over to the next neighborhood to send them!


Nothing right now...carry on!

Comment: Nice interesting mixture of music that I'd never heard before, thank you :)
junemoon rated for SPIN A YARN....... on Jul 3, 2014
Comment: Interesting story, well told. I'm not sure telling a true event and giving your opinion about it is "spinning yarn" which I take to mean making up something fictional. Whatever -- I enjoyed reading it. Actually, you mailed it quite a while after the deadline.

Hello! Saw your post in the LLL group. I'm in Olympia.. Just wanted to say hello! :) Hope you have a good week.

Hi! I am one of your partners for "Music from your country". Swap host contacted everyone saying that some swaps have not reached. You have not rated me yet, so I am wondering if my email has reached you. Please let me know if it hasn't.

Hello :] i have sent you a message a while back, asking you to change my raiting from a 3 to a 5, [you said you would but never did] can you please help me?

JeanetteC on Mar 29, 2014:

Greetings fellow Seattleite! I think we have a bit in common. I agree twilight is horrible (but a great boon for Forks) I love Neil Gaiman, most of your movie choices and most anything by M Night Shyamalin. Real zombies might be my worst nightmare, but I can't stop watching them. =o)

seweclectic on Mar 4, 2014:

I love your profile; we have so much in common & we live so close!
