I am SUPER excited about seeing & having seen all this live
music over the past almost 2 years. At first, I had only seen Dead
Can Dance at Marymoor in August (while here on vacation). Now, I
have seen Rev
(El Corazon), Dick Dale
(Crocodile), Cloud Cult
/The Cave Singers
Might Be Giants
party) & comedians Faison
Love, April Macie and Michael McDonald! I went to all 3 days of
where I met lots of "stars" & had a blast. SO MANY more shows
since then & upcoming. New Order
on my birthday was awesome.
Echo & The Bunnymen, Oddball Comedy Festival in
I'm planning a trip to LA in October for Festival Supreme.
This covers all of the subjects here: funny stuff. dark stuff.
FILM: Here's either a big red flag or the reason why you'll dig me.
I consider the following films to be "love stories": Dog Day
(Vietnam vet robs bank to pay for lover's sex
change), Bonnie & Clyde
old woman gunned down for standing by her man), True Romance
(I mean... COME
ON! Misanthrope meets hooker with a heart of gold.), Natural Born
(too hard to explain here but they WERE in love). There
are more but I can't recall them right away. I'm a hopeless
romantic. What can I say?
I think my my fave romance of 2011/2012 was Wes Anderson's
"! Saw it in theaters twice. I am also a huge fan of
"Happy ThankYou More Please" & heart tuggy comedies such as
favorite band so that should tell you a little too much.
For some reason, for a while I had been on a big Decemberists &
kick. I think it's Jeff Mangum's voice & Colin
Meloy's voice/story telling.

FOOD: I'm a baker that also can cook so I prefer sweets to most
things. Red meat good: vegetables bad! ;^) I am trying to change my
dietary habits lately.
I don't read as much as I should. I went through a period where I
actually said "I don't read books" until I realized how idiotic
that made me sound. During the last week of November I did finally
buy my 1st book by my star-crush Sarah Vowell
. I opted for "The
Partly Cloudy Patriot".
said it best: "If you go to their home & they don't have books,
don't fuck them".
