NOTE ~~~ I apologize, I just got my computer back from the repair shop after several days, so I'm catching up with my swaps. I am so sorry for being late!
I live in the northwestern United States. I'm rather contentedly nerdy. I adore reading books, especially sci-fi. I'm a vegetarian with strong vegan leanings. I like to cook, and knit, and write some. I adore a good cup of tea or a piece of dark chocolate. My favorite colors are metallic ones or strong bright ones, especially blues, greens, and purples. I love animals, but am sadly allergic to pet dander. I spend way too much time on the internet.
I am not so fond of soda (don't like the bubbles). I don't really like pastels, but see their purpose. I prefer home-made or thoughtful over mass-produced homogeny.
like a lot of music, from classic rock to underground hiphop, indie rock to electronic. Some of my fave artists are the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Del tha funkee homosapien, Michael Franti and Spearhead, ELO, Dead Kennedys, Cake, Portishead. I'll listen to just about anything except mainstream country or r&b.
I am a total book junkie. I love love love to read. I especially adore science fiction and murder mystery types, and read a lot of comix as well. However, I will read just about anything (I read through my encyclopedias as a child, for entertainment). My favorite authors are Philip K Dick, Arthur Clark, William Gibson, Frank Herbert, J R R Tolkien, Anne Rice, James Patterson, Thomas Harris, Francesca Lia Block, and the like.
Blade Runner, the first Matrix, Ghost in the Shell, From Hell, The Fifth Element, Lord of the Rings, Gattaca, Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Dune, Sin City, Clerks, American Psycho. I like sci-fi and comix based movies, but am especially drawn to independent or artier movies. I think Michael Bay should be forcibly prevented from ever making or influencing another film. Tarkovsky's Solaris is one of the most beautiful profound films I've ever seen, but it's not for everyone.
Iron Chef, Star Trek, Cowboy Bebop, Six Feet Under, Family Guy, Metalocalypse, Dexter, stuff like that. I don't really like watching TV, because I despise commercials, but I love to watch DVDs of good TV shows.
knitting and sewing, mainly. I like to dabble in sculpture, cross-stitch, crochet, and such. I really love making something by hand or from scratch just to understand the process. Thanks to swapbot, I've recently discovered ATCs, and am really enjoying creating small unique artworks
