About Me

I like art, I like rock-n-roll. I like my dog. I like my boyfriend. We have been together 5 years. No we are not getting married. No, we are not having kids. Yes, we are having too much fun for any of that.

THE POSITIVE~~ Some things I'm into in no particular order are: mix cd's (not top 40 or country puh-leese), Garbage Pail Kids!!! Harry Potter (Slytherin is badass), Old Sweet Valley High books, Elvis, rock-n-roll, BUST magazine, knee highs, stripes, zombies, alternative comics, drag queens, Indian and Japanese culture, exploring, lamps from the 50's, googey architecture, atomic designs, monsters, serial killers, PBR, tattoos, street art, clowns, Rat Fink, Archie McPhee, The Rat Pack, vegan/vegetarian food, my bike, Bettie Page an other pin-up girls, rockabilly imagery in general, being a groupie,sarcasm, vinyl, old skool sneaks and Chuck Taylors, afros, late 70's NYC, breakdancing, Quentin Taratino, vintage magazines and advertisements, Flickr (BTW...the my Flickr photos section is for my swaps, the MY WEBSITE section is for my personal Flickr photos..My REAL Flickr site if you will), and Velvet Paintings. I guess I could have just wrapped that up by saying, " I adore kitsch and Tack." . My favorie colors are pink, red, black, purple and neon green. I like scents that remind me of baked goods (chocolate, cinamon, vanilla, clove, nag champa)

I LOVE YOUR HANDMADE STUFF!

THE NEGATIVE~~ I hate being flaked on. Seriously. I don't like things that are considered "cute" or flowery, romantic, etc. I don't like southwestern themes, and I don't like scrabooking stuffs unless its "edgy," and where are you gonna find that? I have moved beyond cartoon characters, unless you find some OLD Hanna Barbara stuff ( I'm on the prowl for Grape Ape). I can't eat candy anymore, so don't send it because i will eat it and that will hurt me. (im very childlike with the willpower and such, meh.) Candy from foreign land will not be wasted, as the BF really likes strange foods. I'm way too old and crusty for Kawaii, at least i think I am. I dont mind it, but it will more than likely be re-swapped, and i think that makes me a schmuck. Not that into plushies, but my dog is...you can see where that is going. I don't GIVE her plushies, but she sure can jump. That makes me just feel bad, so please don't bother. i don't really like tea, unless its chai. I'm quite the lefty politically, so American flag, yellow ribbon, GW, right wing, conservative, jugdementalist christian swag will be sent back. Im not a satan worshiper, and I do love my country, and I do want the troops to come back home, I just dont need any epherma related to such. capise?

(if you are into that, we will just have to rise above and forget that part about each other and realize we all love swapping, and that is why we are here)

Did I mention that I hate being flaked on. I'd rather have you tell me that you just have time for it or something, just don't leave a girl hanging. I know there a lot of good swappers out there, but I am frustrated and confused by people who sign up for something, know they have a month or so to do it, and then just don't. A month.

Favorite Music

I love my ipod and love everything on it. Since we both don't have all day, I'll try to keep this short: Architecture in Helsinki, BBQ, Beastie Boys, Black Lips, The Cars, The Clash, The Cramps, Eagles of Death Metal, Elvis, The Flamin' Groovies, Girl Talk, Grateful Dead, Hall and Oates, Heart, The Hollies, Iggy Pop, Jay Reatard, King Khan & BBQ, KIng Khan & The Shrines, Kings of Leon, Leslie & the Ly's, Liliput, Mark Sultan, The Misfits, Modest Mouse, The Monks, The Mummies, The New Pornographers, New York Dolls, NoFx (old), Operation Ivy, The Pixies, Phish, The Rolling Stones, Ramones, Royal Trux, The Soviettes, The Spaceshits, T.Rex, Ween, Weezer, The Who, Why?, X, Yo La Tengo, Young Marble Giants, and whatever band my boyfriend is in at the time.

Favorite Movies

Addams Family Values, Back to the Future, Beetlejuice, Best in Show, Billy Madison, Boogie Nights, Brady Bunch, Breakfast on Pluto, Clerks, Clueless, Donnie Darko, Dr Strangelove, Edward Scissorhands, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Ghostbusters 1 & 2, Goonies, Harold and Maude, Heathers, Hudsucker Proxy, Kill Bill 1 & 2, Legally Blonde, Lost Boys, Mallrats, Me & You & Everyone We Know, Muppets Take Manhattan, Natural Born Killers, Office Space, Pecker, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, The Princess Bride, Pulp Fiction, Royal Tennenbaums, Shawshank Redemption, Sin City, Sixteen Candles, Stand By Me, Star Wars: ALL OF THEM, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, There's Something About Mary, Tommy Boy, Trainspotting, Wedding Crashers, Wet Hot American Summer, What About Bob?, and Wild at Heart. I do like a lot more than this, but these are my jams.

Favorite Television

Simpsons, Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Arrested Development, Globe Trekker, Sex and the City, Golden Girls, Roseanne, Dead Like Me, the brady bunch, Antiques Roadshow, The Office, Snuff Box, Wondershowzen, AbFab, Curb your Enthusiasm, Reno 911!, Insomniac, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Twin Peaks, Big Love, The Sarah SIlverman Program. I also find guilty pleasure in watching shows aimed at teenagers (degrasssi, saved by the bell, adventures of pete and pete, clarissa explians it all, hey dude, salute your shorts, what I like about you, you get it...)

I hate most reality shows on Network TV. I also hate sketch comedy.

Favorite Crafts

Acrylics on canvas, Interior Design, 4x6 mailable collages, photography, when i had a sewing machine I enjoyed making clothes. Maybe I should get back on that.....I am also a contributing member of my friends awesome 'zine. the title of which may not be appropriate for here, so I will leave that mum. (ask me about it if you dare, i would love to swap 'zines) I am attempting to make my own 'zine with all the HANDMADE mail art have gotten and received over the years.

I dont knit but i wish i could. Im sort of "saving" that for myself when my good looks run out.

Comment: Never got anything. Never heard from swapper about why. I don't mind late items as long as I'm notified, but I do expect to be messaged about it (I shouldn't have to remind them to send items). Will change to 3 if I get anything.
Response: not true. sent it weeks ago. will resend. so happy after 3 years of a perfect score that this one mussed it up .

Comment: Holy Abundance, BatMan! There was a package, and it was small, but it was FULL of awesome stuff that I love. This is the kind of swapper that makes swap-bot fun. Thank you! I love "Nurse with Wound", zines, Kali-ma, old moviestars, squids, scary dolls and beautiful silk cranes. WOW! I wish I could give you five or six hearts.
Response: I was hoping you'd say that :)

Hey there - What's up? I know you wouldn't be letting things go with your ratings and all if there wasn't something sketchy going on so I hope everything's okay. If you need any help getting up to speed on your swaps, let me know. I changed our swap to end by the end of the year. Just get in touch when you get a chance, okay? jendiggitydirt AT gmail DOT com.

Hey! Thanks for the nice comment etc. Sorry for not replying earlier. I love your profile too! I am a little tied up with a berzillion swaps right now but once I have cleared the dashboard a little bit, would you like to maybe do a private swap?? xox

Lauriebelle on Feb 18, 2009:

It says on here that you don't like scrapbooking materials unless they're edgy...Have you ever checked out Tinkering Ink or BasicGrey? I wouldn't exactly call them edgy...but about as close as it gets in the scrapbooking world at this point.

Lauriebelle on Feb 17, 2009:

OMG...It rocks my world that you're into SVH books and Garbage Pail Kids! I have to admit that I have an embarrassing number of GPK cards....um...as well as the entire ALF card collection...hehehe...I just love that furry alien!

marilavado on Feb 2, 2009:
