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.
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.

I do like a lot more than this, but these are my jams.

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.
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.
