Electromagnetic training instructor by day and artist by night, I love the duality of my internal grey matter (though it gets a little crazy colorful up there at times). A southern Georgia transplant, I kind of enjoy the sun but definitely the weather in San Diego, where I reside with a husky and crazy guy. I am punk/gothic/harajuku/retro in my dress, activities, and intrests so I have an overflowing closet that looks a bit like Betty Page day/footwear with some Ramones/Rammstein band tees thrown in without forgetting Morticia's dresses.
Music is very important to me. I listen to a lot of rock, metal, heavy metal, hard rock, hardcore, industrial, death metal, some dubstep, symphonic metal, melodic metal, and when a mood takes me, I get down on swing, big band, a little bit of upbeat Cajun jazz. I also appreciate the classics like Mozart (who inspires a LOT of metal), Paganini, and other crazies of their times.
FFDP, Old Metallica, Led Zepplin, Rammstein, Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, NIN, Glitch Mob
Books are my escapes into the minds of others. I read a lot of sci-fi (Asimov, Bradbury), fantasy (Bradley, Martin), and horror too! I grew up on Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Tolkien. I speed read so books are snacks not meals.
Divine Comedy, American Psycho, GoT, Lord of the Rings, Memnoch the Devil
My next love to audio enjoyment is definitely audio/visual in long standard sections. I am five minutes away from a movie theatre and it is a true part of my schedule to go at least once a month. Shows can be so immersive and I enjoy the temporary transportation to other realms. I, again, am very much into horror, action, documentary, and occasionally an animated film. I do not enjoy comedy, rom-com, or kid's films.
Brotherhood of the Wolf, Equillibrium, The Machinist, The Last Unicorn, Reign of Fire
When it comes to crafts, I do not have a wide variation. I paint/draw with acrylics, inks, and oils. I occasionally practice my origami. I am not into fabric craft unless it means sewing on a button or replacing a broken zipper. I do so love to write so pen-palling and postcards are a collectible thing for me. We shall not speak of my stamps, my precious stamps... I will have to state that scrapbooking or the like is something I really detest. The squished fake flower with motivational word or phrase is a bit infuriating to me as it usually looks rushed/cheap/uninspired. However, it is my opinion and I respect all that enjoy that craft. I am sure many do not enjoy the amount of black I use in my art so I do not mind if you stated thusly.
Drawing, painting, stamps, cards, postcards
