Hi. I'm Kate, and this is my profile.
I'm currently a senior-level media studies student at Northwestern State University. I'm also the proud wife of a soldier, and a veteran myself.
I'm a Christian, but I consider myself the tolerant and open-minded sort. Life is a journey and everyone comes to their own belief out of their own reckoning. I'm also an NPR listener and vote a very split ticket if you can reconcile those beliefs.
My hobbies usually somehow involve literature, turn-of-last-century medical quackery and cinema.
I love music of all sorts. Progressive Rock from the 70's and 80's especially--but I'm down with being surprised with anything new that is well-executed for its genre generally. Also, any song Trevor Horn has ever produced, and any project Mark Knopfler has played a mean guitar lick on.
I primarily believe that musical expression is one of humanity's greatest art forms--so variety in experience is the key to my enjoyment.
There are too many of these to list--because I'm a bit of a bookish lass.
I enjoy classic literature, non-fiction, and generally tomes of the scholarly sort before I'll enjoy current pop fiction. e.g.: I just downloaded massive amounts of Ovid and Plato to my Kindle. I do enjoy Audrey Neiffenegger immensely though.
I also love cinema. My associates level studies were mainly in film.
My favorites include:
Un Chein Andalou
Somewhere In Time
The Iron Giant
2001: A Space Odyssey (on 70mm film only)
This list is much easier to compile. I have pretty pedestrian tastes when it comes to television. I'll just list a few.
The IT Crowd
Various PBS Programs
Politcal Commentary from all over the spectrum (I study media theory. :D )
Parks and Recreation
Things pertaining to Victorian quackery and religious beliefs (especially the strange and cultish kind if it's literature.)
Clothing from just about any era.
Teacups and saucers
Patent Medicine Bottles
