I hope we'd have more in common than just liking npr. The sheer

female musician and then having a really kick ass band where i get
to play banjo, accordion and whatever other instruments I am

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to run a record label with my friends. Book shows for
touring bands in someone's living room. Mostly I play in a
ragtime/punk revival act Peninsula. I have a puppet show I call The
Misanthroppets. I am constantly trying to record the next album,
and go on a tour to support the next album! I also draw whenever I
can (I am classically trained, but also classically ignore the
training). I really enjoy keeping a sketchbook, and often bury
myself in it. Trying to learn new instruments (accordian,
saxaphone, and trumpet.). I am an aspiring printmaker. I am making
a comic. I am constantly writng notes to myself and then not
reading them. Planning out Halloween costumes months in advance,
then procrastinating making them. I cut my hair and now I have to
learn how to use product. I am riding my bike, and looking through
the nooks and crannies. constantly contemplating and new
profession. I blog: http://epicsaga.tumblr.com

internet variety, but the variety that can name of Roman emperors,
and talk for hours about astronomy.)
