Hi! I'm Kim, just joined this thing and starting to get addicted! At the mo I'm moving house (well, moving from my uni house to my actual home before moving back up to a new uni house!), so my life is in boxes and quite chaotic! So some swaps may be a bit slow, however I will notify you if I will be having problems. I'm a crafty person with a tendancy to be constantly making things which verges on obsessive compulsive! I'm a first year textile craft student in Huddersfield (UK) which perfectly takes up my time with textiley fun! I love handmade unique and beautiful things with personality and that individual flair!
Anything textiles, print, embroidery, knitting, weaving, crochet, hat making, customising clothes, making clothes (though I'm terrible at it!), lots of art, drawings in ink and biro, printing with etchings and heat presses and printing presses, mosaics, collage, spraypaint and stencils, origami, papercrafts, just anything I can make or do!
A mix of everything, I don't really have a genre, I just like anything I find catchy or beautiful. But a small selection is... The Dresden Dolls/Amanda Palmer, Ray Charles, The Cure, Adam Ant, Emilie Autumn, Hadouken!, Los Campesinos!, Bright Eyes, Death Cab for Cutie, Birthday Massacre, Ani DiFranco, Patrick Wolf, Belle & Sebastian, Simon & Garfunkle, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kimya Dawson, Gogol Bordello, Modest Mouse, Sufjan Stevens
I absolutely love all Neil Gaiman's books, and I love Stephen King but haven't read one for a while, they started scaring me too much! I adore To Kill a Mockingbird, and I live for art, photography and craft books. Fruits by Aoki Shoichi makes me unbelievably happy!
I tend to have tv as background noise, I have a stupidly short attention span unless I find things amazing...but I tend to like anything funny, especially panel shows like Mock the Week and Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Love Scrubs, The Simpsons, The Mighty Boosh and other various things. I have a fatal addiction to Eastenders. And I "watch" rubbish American sitcoms/Jeremy Kyle if they're on! And film wise, Eternal Sunshine, Amelie, Howls Moving Castle, Spiritied Away, Persepolis, Rent, This is England, All Tim Burton, Fight Club and other epic wonders =)
