About Me

Hey there-

Attention! I'm looking for some new pen pals cause I miss snail mail badly ;(. & I don't check swap-bot that much anymore

If any of my interest match yours email me @ [email protected] & we'll work something out :)

Favorite Music

I listen to a variety of music; you can view a taste of it on my last.fm account: http://www.last.fm/user/thruacellardoor.

I often inquire others about ultimatum questions, such as: Gorilla vs. Bear, who would win in a battle? Also, the one that I'm most torn with, would you rather be blind or deaf? Considering how much I need music in my daily life for now I'll have to go with blind...

Beach House Belle and Sebastian Stars The Cranberries Grizzly Bear Neutral Milk Hotel Fleet Foxes Emmy the Great Elliott Smith Best Coast No Doubt Bright Eyes Kate Nash Animal Collective Chad Vangaalen Dinosaur Jr. the Dead Kennedys Simon & Garfunkel Bob Dylan Daniel Johnston Jack White-anything Sonic Youth Lemuria The Smiths Kid Dynamite The Dead Weather Violent Femmes The Velvet Underground Nico Silversun Pickups FRANK ZAPPA.

Favorite Movies

Annie Hall [Anything Woody Allen] Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind The Royal Tenenbaums Darjeeling Limited Life Aquatic [Anything Wes Anderson-directed] Clockwork Orange Harold & Maude High Fidelity Me and You and Everyone We Know Run Lola Run The Animation Show Eraserhead Fargo Le Planete Sauvage Reservoir Dogs Before Sunrise Amelie

[Anything Ed Wood-directed] [Anything David Lynch] [Anything Michel Gondry]

Also, I enjoy old hollywood. movies with the greats such as Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Jane Russell, Bette Davis, etc.

1930's sound film The Blue Angel with Marlene Dietrich is worth checking out.

I love zombie flicks and dressing up as one.

Favorite Crafts

I write short stories, poetry, lyrics.

ZINES! Staircase Wit is mine. Message me to trade fer yours!

Mail art makes me smile.

I love to crochet... Here's a crocheted ham I made recently (like Scout from To Kill A Mockingbird)

I enjoy doodling weird expressions and/or situations and constructing collages.

Also love photography and miss being the darkroom.

open to new projects :)

Favorite Books

I read constantly, usually two at a time - one fiction, one non-fiction.

I love the beat generation writers, Kerouac first off, as well as Ginsberg and Burroughs.

Cash by Johnny Cash, greatest autobio.

The Stranger by Albert Camus

Hemmingway is fantastic. Sylvia Plath's words are incredible. And I think Virginia Woolf was too beautiful for this world.

Currently reading God's Debris by the comic Dilbert creator Scott Adams. It's very interesting.

Comment: Yes, my package is late but I love it love it love it! GOOD for you for going to school to be a writer. Wish I had done that ;+) Back to the package. I love it all! I love the little Edward Scissorhands button SO much. Everything was wonderful and POOP on all the low raters for late packages--life happens!
AmyMarie rated for JUNE: Mail Art, Inside and Out #3 on Jul 17, 2012
Comment: 6/30/12 [rated a 1] - the swap is marked as "not sent" and she has not logged on since 6/22/12; 7/17/12 [rated a 3] - received the swap which was sent 7/12/12 (almost a month late). Part of the swap description states "The inside of your envelope/package should contain a minimum of 3 handmade items that are in some way mail art or postal related." The 3 handmade items sent (a 1" button and 2 zines) do NOT have mail art or postal theme / subject. I appreciate you sending something for the swap instead of nothing. Unfortunately, the lateness does not meet the swap requirements nor does the contents of the package.

Happy Halloween!

egalite on Oct 15, 2011:

Hi Laura-- I really don't mind sending you the original-- no rated swap necessary. Just pm me with your current address, Ok? I know a photo isn't enough if you actually like the picture... so I was half expecting you to ask depending on whether you liked it or not! I'm happy you liked it!

Anniehall on Sep 5, 2011:

Hi there! Many greetings from a fellow Woody Allen fan. I'll watch Midnight in Paris one of these days. I cannot wait. Sending good vibes in your way. Hasta luego :)

Next time I am at the beach I will get her some modesty shells. It reminds me of being a little kid and running around in bikini bottoms and nothing else :)

I have added some ami pics on my profile if you are still interested in taking a peep. At the moment I am working on an epic dinosaur and I think my nephew will have to pry it out of my hands >.<
