dreamer, vegan, athiest
Right now I am most interested in zines, mail art, and imaginative exchanges. I am very open to private swaps and happy to meet new people!
[As a vegan, it is offensive to me to receive products made from animals. I also have little patience for bigotry of any kind.]
I'm always up for hearing something new. I like a little bit of everything.
Some of the artists I like: Neil Young, Charles Mingus, Wayne Shorter, Nirvana, Joy Division, David Bowie, The Pogues, Led Zeppelin, Arnold Bax, Type O Negative, Bruce Springsteen, Van Morrison, Jeff Buckley, The Cranberries, John Coltrane, Keb' Mo', Tab Benoit, Muddy Waters, Kate Bush, Type O Negative, Thelonius Monk, Eddie Harris, John Zorn, Belle & Sebastian, Danzig, Dinosaur Jr., Aphex Twin, Burzum
I enjoy a variety and will give any genre/author a shot!
Some I have particularly enjoyed:
Books: Jellicoe Road, Saving Francesca, The Piper's Son, Slaughterhouse Five, Tender Morsels, Infinite Jest, A Clockwork Orange, Wuthering Heights, The Road, The Lorax, Hunger Games trilogy
Authors: David Foster Wallace, Melina Marchetta, H.P. Lovecraft, Joyce Carol Oates, Grimm Brothers, Emily & Anne Bronte
Fairy Tale Related (not just written word): I love the original Grimms' Tales and in general old tales and fables. (I will soon list a couple of my favorite tales here) I also enjoy modern retellings, such as Tender Morsels (Margo Lanagan) and Briar Rose (Jane Yolen). The Storyteller series (T.V.) by Jim Henson is incredible, the fairy tales more than the Greek. Into the Woods is a fun collaboration of tales, though I am not as in to musicals as I once was, but I like the addition of the horrific side of the tales and continuing unhappy endings. As a kid I loved the tale of Beauty and the Beast (not Disney).
The Labyrinth, First Blood (Rambo), Dark Crystal, Almost Famous, Antichrist, Empire Records - also have a weakness for various Jane Austen and Bronte sisters adaptations, I watched many of these growing up
Directors: David Lynch, Werner Herzog, Jim Henson, Lars von Trier
Old T.V. w/o converter box, so these are watched via DVD: The Wire, Treme, True Blood, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, The X-Files, Millennium, The Storyteller, Battlestar Galactica
Currently interested in:
If you have another idea let me know, I'm up for a challenge ;)
Unless a swap is profile specific, please feel free to express yourself however you like! I love to see what others create and to learn new techniques.
Group stuff: I love being in groups that have great swaps and/or great forum action and try to be active in the groups I have joined. If a group has died or my participation is low to nonexistent I will not stick around, but may keep it in mind if something changes.
