"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
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

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.

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 :)
