I am in an open relationship with a pretty phenomenal lady.
I live in a house with a whole bunch of people where we have shows, dance parties, and community workshops on a fairly regular basis.
I legitimately love West Virginia and plan to spend my entire life here trying to make it the best it can possibly be. I spend a great deal of time volunteering and advocating for reproductive rights. I also take care of a beautiful black/white cat who happens to have dwarfism.
Favorite Movies: Manhattan (Woody Allen), Taxi Driver (Martin Scorsese), Robo Vampire (Godfrey Ho), Contempt (Jean Luc Godard), Videodrome (David Cronenberg), Breaking the Waves (Lars Von Trier), Marie Antoinette (Sofia Coppola), and Female Trouble (John Waters). I have a massive appreciation for art films as well as complete trash. The French New Wave and Italian Exploitation are my two favorite genres.
Favorite Television: Mystery Science Theater 3000, Portlandia, Squidbillies, Arrested Development, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, TV Carnage, 30 Rock, and Futurama. I'm slowly recovering from being that jerk who says they don't watch TV.
Favorite Music: The Beach Boys, Starflyer 59, Kanye West, Rick James, Destroyer, the Louvin Brothers, the Avalanches, and Bela Bartok. This plays a massive part in my life, mainly due to my ever-growing record collection. If you feel like looking at my collection, check out http://www.discogs.com/user/umakemehatemusic/collection for a mostly complete catalog of my records.
Favorite Foods: Cheese, deep fried pickles, lemon poppyseed muffins, mashed potatoes, pineapples, popsicles, spinach, and waffles. I like to eat a lot.
