My Website

About Me

Short version: I'm a middle-aged, somewhat damaged, artistic (also autistic) nerd who enjoys good science fiction, good music, good food, and friendly critters with fewer than eight legs. It should be noted at this point that I consider the appendages on cephalopods to be arms, not legs, and as such they are exempt from this rule.

Longer version: I think the most relevant bit of information for this website is that I am a collector. I differ from the standard collector in that rather than collect one specific thing, I collect collections. Postcards, matchbooks, foreign currency, buttons, fabric, toys, t-shirts... You name it, I probably have a few dozen of it carefully tucked away somewhere for future use or display. At this point you might think I'm a hoarder, and under different circumstances that might actually be the case. However, I take great care to cultivate only those things which are of genuine interest or use to me, and I like to pare down my hoard as often as possible by giving my extra things away or by participating in swaps like those listed on this website.

Shortest version: COME TRADE JUNK WITH ME!!!

Favorite Music

AFI, The Offspring, Strung Out, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, The Rebel Spell, The Phenomenauts, The Stellar Corpses

VNV Nation, KMFDM, Imperative Reaction, Left Spine Down, Rabbit Junk, Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, 3Teeth, Neuroticfish, Covenant

Amanda Palmer, Gogol Bordello, Jonathan Colton, Zoe Keating, Unwoman

Confused yet?

Favorite Books

Book-books: Anything by Lois McMaster Bujold. Most things by Neil Gaiman and Cherie Priest. Some Ursula LeGuin, some Kurt Vonnegut. Both of them turned weird when they got older.

Comics: Tank Girl, Serenity Rose, Nimona, Sandman, Persepolis... And Saga. You need to go read Saga right now. Seriously. Do it.

Favorite Television

Doctor Who, TORCHWOOD, Red Dwarf, Firefly, Farscape, Star Trek, Warehouse 13, Futurama, Archer, Sherlock, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Adventure Time, Rick and Morty, Supernatural... Yeah, okay, I said it. I'm one of the SuperWhoLock people. Don't judge me.

Artists

Alan Forbes, Frank Kozik, Tara McPherson, Megan Lara, Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Stitchmind.

Favorite Crafts

Illustration, painting, collage, sculpture, jewelry, costuming, props, clothing design... pretty much everything except charcoal, watercolor, and oils.

Comment: Belated thank you for the bold, spiffy 50s-style graphic you shared with me :) For some reason the illustrated woman reminds me of Ann-Margret singing "How Lovely to Be a Woman" from Bye, Bye Birdie -- I am hoping the live TV version casts bonafide triple-threats instead of big names. I look forward to Jennifer Lopez's Rosie Alvarez!

I'm trying to avoid new swaps right now because this month is really busy. I'll start another round of Roulette in November.
