My self-summary
I am into tango and Weimar cabaret. I tried to go see Ute Lemper last weekend but the show was cancelled because she was sick. OH WOE!!! I like the arts, music, and wine. I am distracted easily. I am a singer, and so I sing all the time. I also have been learning to play the accordion these last three years and I LOVE it. I am into computers and programming, but curiously, I am too impatient to learn to do simple things on my cell phone or digital watch.

I am a feminist of the vaguely postmodern kind. I am extremely liberal, politically, and I am an ELCA Lutheran who is pro-choice and supportive of alternative and homosexual lifestyles. I consider myself to be somewhat of an existientialist in the vein of Frankl. I believe the best way to express religious devotion is to help other people and make the world a better place. I badly want to do this, but sometimes I am unsure how to make a difference. I also want to start an artistic movement based on Baudrillard's ideas on seduction. I have probably misspelled "Baudrillard".

I like writing profile summaries, for some reason. I'm not expecting anyone I know to read this.

I am a musician, a liberal democrat, and distracted
What I’m doing with my life
I am a computer programmer now but soon (in the fall) I'm going to Dartmouth to go to gradschool for electro-acoustic music. Hopefully, I'll be a composer/performer after that, and not have a day job.
I’m really good at
singing, writing music, communicating my ideas, dressing up, performing, computer programming, solving abstract problems, discrete math, starting projects and coming up with ideas for them, throwing dinner parties, learning new paradigms, cooking, expressing affection
The first things people usually notice about me
I wear a star on my face. And, apparently, I look exactly like Liv Tyler.

In general: Basically, a mix of electronic music, world, rock/pop, and western art music. I love most things that orginated in the early 80's under the heading goth/new wave/synth pop. I hate grunge in the macro. I like hearing new things and concepts. Currently, I'm really into Weimar cabaret and tango, and I just got a Laurie Spiegal cd in the mail...

Six things I could never do without
my voice, accordion, guitar, paper to fold or tear apart when fiddling, a support network of friends and/or family, Internet/Computers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
music, aesthetics, sex, my boyfriend, my close friends and family, the nature of the self, subjectivity, various aspects of human psychology, computer programming, lately I've been thinking about Elizabeth Lutyens, physical location as it relates to music, feminism, politics, sounds in general (I like Pauline Oliveros' Deep Listening ideas and her writings about listening so that's had an impact on how I perceive the sounds around me), thinking about ways to be more positive (been reading about positive psychology and it seems very effective)
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't know? What's typical? Nothing's been typical lately.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
not very private at all.
You should message me if
you want to be friends or are interested in learning/exploring in music or something that we are both interested in. I am not looking for a mate/sex/etc. in any way, shape, or form. I have a boyfriend and he is wonderful.
The two of us
