...this is coming out way more 'HEY LOOK HOW QUIRKY AND FUN I AM' than I intended, so full disclosure: usually I'm hella boring. You've been warned.
I don't take myself very seriously. You shouldn't take me very seriously either.
I am hypoallergenic, incandescent, and fireproof
But if it all falls apart again, I'm going to find a way to make a living by punching Glenn Beck in the throat. Actually, I'd probably do that for free.
Oh! And I totally rock at doing handstands. Write that one down.
Oh, and The Apple is pretty much the greatest movie of all time; if you haven't seen it, you're missing out.
I'm rarely reading fewer than three books at a time, but I can't remember the last time I finished one. It's pretty pathetic. Some personal favorites are Danielewski's 'House of Leaves,' Heller's 'Catch-22', 'Good Omens' by Gaiman and Pratchett. I also loved 'I, Lucifer' by Glen Duncan. I hope to finish 'Goedel, Escher, Bach' before I die, but it probably won't happen. Defoe's 'The Pirates! In an Adventure with..." serious is bloody brilliant. Favorite writers include Harlan Ellison, Neil Gaiman, Warren Ellis, Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, and about a bajillion others.
I eagerly await the day that bestsellers are written above a third grade reading level. I'm looking at you, Da Vinci Code.
And unless you want to hear an epic rant about domestic abuse in teen fiction, don't even fucking talk to me about Twilight.
Musical taste? Eclectic--industrial, trip-hop, oi, acoustic folk, some broadway musicals (Don't judge me, fuckers), neo-classical, neo-swing, neo-folk, neo-lots of things, darkwave, instrumental soundtracks, random indie rock and hip-hop. Ani DiFranco, Assemblage 23, Portishead, Gogol Bordello, Vienna Teng, Sage Francis, Dropkick Murphys, Laura Veirs, Decemberists, Dresden Dolls, Royal Crown Revue, Regina Spektor, VNV Nation, Morcheeba, Tori, Panic!, Aesop Rock, The Knife, Bella Morte...stuff like that.
And Toby Keith needs to fall into a tiger pit.
Favorite food? Either overpriced yuppie-fuck coffee or anything you eat with chopsticks.
I keep having this fantasy where one day I'll skillfully prepare grown-up meals like a real adult, but it hasn't happened yet. Until it does, Snak Pak pudding cups will keep me alive, right?
Oh, and working on my sing-a-long blog.
