My self-summary
I'm a big ole book geek. Fond of horror fiction, literature, esoteric philosophies, and as an information addict, anything I don't know anything about.

I'm also a vegetarian. Have been for over twenty years.

My tastes in movies and music are many and varied. There's very little that I'm not interested in at some level and I enjoy seeking out new and interesting art forms.

Though born and raised Jewish, I did drift. I appreciate Buddhism, Paganism, and Eastern approaches to life.

I am literate, goofy, and a punslinger
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in the process of turning a hobby into a career. I've got a good eye for rare books and love hitting yard sales in search of treasure. Hello Ebay! In terms of what I read: I like high falutin' authors like James Joyce or W. B. Yeats I also go low-brow and love a romp with authors like Joe Hill, Joe. R. Lansdale and old pulps from the 30's and 40's.
I've done animal rescue and have been successful at cat herding. It helps that I speak some cat and a little dog. I have a smattering of squirrel but their dialects can be tricky.
I’m really good at
Readin', writin' and radiatin'. I'm pretty decent at haggling. I can be most useful at a yard sale or thrift store. I'm also a font of useless information. Cats seem to like me so if you have any cat herding to be done, I'm in. And I've helped a lot of people move. I'm good at schlepping.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've got plenty of energy and have been known to radiate while sitting quietly. I also walk quietly and people have suggested that I wear a bell.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A sampling I love horror fiction and have been collecting some rare, limited signed editions by authors such as Brian Keene, Joe R. Lansdale, Robert E. Howard and Joe Hill. I've also got some nice first editions of classic literature including a Steinbeck and the first appearance in print of Poe's Pit and the Pendulum.

The old pulp fictions are fun too. H.P. Lovecraft, Maxwell Grant, Kenneth Robeson and I already mentioned Bob Howard.

Then there's the esoteric philosophy side of my little library: Crowley, Kenneth Grant, The Golden Dawn, John Dee, and Dion Fortune.

I also like literature and lit crit: James Joyce, Yeats, Foucault, Zizek, etc. I finally picked up a copy of War and Peace and am determined to get though it in this lifetime.

Movies: A mixed bag. Zombie films (walking not running zombies); the Italians, Fulci, Bava, Argento. I also love samurai films, Yojimbo, Ran, Sword of Doom are most festive. Some artsy fartsy directors I like include: Bergman, Fellini, and Kurosawa. I also love classic horror- Universal's monsters are just peachy-Karloff and Lugosi and Lon Chaney Sr. & Jr.

Music: Another mixed bag. Old punk, rock, classical, opera, Johnny Cash, Pogues, Ani Difranco, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Diamanda Galas, Tom Waits, Dead Can Dance, etc.

Food: If it's veggie/vegan I'm all over it.
Six things I could never do without
1. Books 2. A good walk 3. Good company/conversation 4. My computer 5. Yard Sales 6. Learning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the Universe and every/nothing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching some classic cinema or something schlocky. Mapping out some yard sales and heating up something from Trader Joe's. I heat. Not so much cook.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty open. Ask and I answer.
You should message me if
Any of this seems interesting or if you could just use a Scrabble buddy.
