About Me

"I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till i drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion." Jack Kerouac

Favorite Music

My favourite song ever is Soul Coughing's 'Screenwriter's Blues' I otherwise like just about everything except modern popular country and really dense metal/ hardcore. Some of my favourites are: [the real] tuesday weld, the mountain goats, enon, matson jones, the decemberists, gogol bordello, mclusky, soul coughing, sons and daughters, gruff rhys, tom waits, foals, chromeo, the faint, mirah, cibo matto, leningrad, oingo boingo, and beirut

Favorite Movies

I have too many favourites. Let's just say I love anything with stop motion animation, Rushmore, Anything by Errol Morris, Anything by Jeunet and/or Carot, French New Wave from the 60s especially the gangster flicks, Japanese New Wave horror, Ghostbusters, Revenge of the Nerds, oh and anything with Simon Pegg.

Favorite Television

law and order, the mighty boosh, Secret Life of Machines, Connections, randall and hopkirk (deceased), aqua teen hunger force, sealab 2021, venture brothers, 1st season ren and stimpy, the simpsons, family guy, mr show, arrested development, curb your enthusiasm and lately I'm addicted to Project Runway and Top Chef

Favorite Crafts

---Handmade books ---Print-making (emphasis on lino-cuts) ---knitting (I am not an adept knitter though) ---Jewelry/silversmithing (metal fabrication and lost wax casting) ---painting. My art is, for the most part, based on biological slides/ microscopy.

bordering on obsession

---Vintage barware ---Vintage Thermoset necklaces ---owls ---elephants ---pears ---bears ---squirrels ---matchbooks ---octopi ---vintage lab books ---thick and thin art yarns

prefer nots

I suppose there are a few things I'd rather not find in my mail so out of fairness to the success of swapping I should point them out:

I'm Jewish so I would prefer not to get Christianity related things, I don't mind cute snowmen and all at the holidays, especially since it's hard finding cute Hannukah things at the shops, I just don't want scriptures and religious things.

I'm allergic to onions, this really only applies to actual food swaps, as if you send a recipe card that includes some onions, no biggie I'll omit the onion and swap it for my stand in ingredients, but I guess I would not like recipes for "onion fritters" or such :)

Comment: OMG, if I could give you more hearts I would!!! This is probably the most exciting and awesome package I have ever gotten in my life! you went way way beyond what was required!! I actually got into rubber stamp making last year because of my nerdy hobby, which is letterboxing (look it up). I have always wanted to try lino printing, but just haven't gotten around to it. The tool is very similar to my stamp carving tool, but the bits are different. I LOVED the examples you sent!! You are really good!!! This is so great! I'll stop babbling soon, but expect a PM or two from me requesting more info once I try it (i'm sure i'll need help). When I make something, I'll send you a print!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything. Lino-carving is so addictive, I'm sure you'll love it!

Comment: Totally AWESOME! I have always been fascinated with alternative photography. I can't wait to make and use my pinhole camera! I am starting a collection of pool books and yours are the first in my stack. Our subdivision pool is opening soon and I am ready to sun and read all summer! I loved your life "story" I do the same thing as you. I think I am ordinary but I have done some really unique and different things just trying to survive life and be a better person in the end.

Hey, I love the lino-carving stuff so much, I have created a swap inspired by you! I hope you don't mind. Thanks again for the nerd swap stuff you sent! It was definitely one of the best swaps I've received so far. Here is the link to the swap I created for poetry and releif prints: http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/35692
