About Me

Favorite Music

Evolutionaries, Mathematicians, BenFlowz, Man Man, Black Sabbath, Billy Bragg, The Jam, Minor Threat, Miles Davis, Cafe Tacuba, The Smiths, Johnny Cash, Ella Fitzgerald, Tommy Guerrero. I like everything, except modern country and sappy ballads (Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, etc.).

Favorite Movies

Film is my life, okay a major part of my life. I am a filmmaker, and I make experimental shorts and documentaries.

Fav Indie Shorts: Flow, Loop, Cielito Lindo, La Historia de Los Colores, Super8 Daydream, Skin (my fav), Muse, One, Transmission, How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Goat, West Bank Story, Spin, The September Sessions.

Fav Mainstream: The Science of Sleep, Princess Bride, Moulin Rouge, Hero, The Parent Trap (original version), An American in Paris, Harold and Maude and many more.

Favorite Books

Discourse On Colonialism, The Motorcycle Diaries, Our Word Is Our Weapon, The Dubliners, Running in Heels, The Labyrinth of Solitude, Spanish/English Dictionary, The Guerrilla Filmmakers Handbook, Everything is Illuminated, Japanese craft/zakka books.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy knitting, crocheting, sewing, making funky dolls and new varieties of pets, bookbinding, goccoing, soldering things, and whatever strikes my fancy. I liken myself to a raccoon, always looking for the next shiny object.

The dark and macabre is stimulating, as is the ultra cute, i.e. Totoro, Sanrio, etc. The 30s & 40s were an amazing time for design, be it fashion, home, or graphics.

About Me

Let's see, what to say about myself? I am always busy doing something. I wish I had 5 lives going simultaneously, so I could do, see and learn everything that interests me. I am learning Spanish and am about to begin a class in Japanese - including reading and writing Hiragana :). Language is so interesting.

I love the ocean and try to get into it every chance I get. I surf.

I am an artist. I went to the SF Art Institute for film and graduated in 2006. Filmmaking is my passion, but I also do photography, textile art, ceramics, and collage.

I started sewing when I was six, and I liked it well enough, I guess. I wanted to be a fashion designer, but decided against it when I realized sewing made me angry. I think it's more mistakes and the seam ripper made me angry. Finally after 30 odd years, I am enjoying sewing. It's great.

Comment: Dear Ms. Vader: A postcard, a neat illustration of Cupid meeting a sticky end, a bunch of good songs dealing with heartbreak and the awful "Oh, no, he/she is dating somebody else!" aftermath. This was totally heartable. Sncrly yrs., Andrew (theampersand)
