i play music. i used to play in a band with my sis. she moved away and i was forced to write my own songs. i really like doing it and playing shows. diy and house shows pretty much. what kind of music is it you ask? i'd call it punk but it's mostly just me whispering. diy pop. www.cavebabies.bandcamp.com
i've been lead organizer, i guess, for food not bombs for a long time. love fnb. favorite thing! come help/eat! www.facebook.com/groups/fnbiv
been doing a radio show at the college/community station KCSB for a long time too. all diy music and i usually have bands play live. other favorite thing! www.5432fun.org
i want to be good at visual art. i suck at drawing. i used to make animated .gifs and that's fun. i should make more. done some embroidery but i want to do more of that too. maybe i could paint? i make videos sometimes.
i'm good at driving. i'm good at helping people do things. i just like helping and not being a useless bag of blood and guts mmmmm. i'm good at dressing myself. haha. i think my current style is pretty good. tucking my shirt in these days so that's cool. i'm not necessarily good at dancing. i'm good at making lists. here's a list of some lists:
- most of the shows i've been to since 2008 // http://5432fun.tumblr.com/bootlegs
- and a bunch of shows i've recorded // http://www.5432fun.org/bootleg/
- the vhs tapes i have // http://5432fun.tumblr.com/vhs
- the television that i've watched // http://www.5432fun.org/tv/
i read some non-fiction too. i've been a "friend of" ak press for a while now. i don't read all the books, but i like a lot of what they publish and just want to support it i guess.
movies? // i like vhs tapes. i like the movies that were made before vhs tapes stopped. i haven't seen many recent movies. a lot of the movies i have on tape make me cringe a little and it's hard. i drove over all of my woody allen and bill cosby tapes with my minivan and then set them on fire. some of my favs tho include: rad, mac n me, xanadu, logan's run, the big chill, weekend at bernies, my bloody valentine, forbidden planet... i mean, the list goes on....
shows? // i've watched a lot of television. i think maybe more than anyone ever? (ugh) i've kept track of it all though and think of it more as a performance art project. or research or something. it's mostly background noise but i just love it. like the movies, a lot of it makes me cringe, but there are still things about these shows that i find entertainment value in at least. i guess. (ugh ugh)
music? // diy. music my friends make. or people that could be my friends someday. i don't listen to much commercial music. but whatever. i'd rather use the energy to support and make friends with music. i can't really make a list but you can listen to my radio show if yr actually interested!
food? // is good. i've been vegetarian since i was twelve. so that. if i go to a potluck i always make my famous vegan mac n cheese. mmmmmm yum. i do most of my fooding at the fud co-op, but also.... burritos... love burritos. also, bbq sauce. i love bbq sauce.
someday leaving santa babs but probably not. does my butt look good in these jeans? do i really have to ask? the answer is yes.
oppressions, privileges, where they meet.
how cool therapy is.
week nights or weekends are always different. this isn't a good question haha.
just looking to find new people.
