I'm big into anti-oppression thanks to some friends who are movers and shakers. I'm working on understanding myself better, and that means understanding what assumptions I make. So don't address me by saying "guys". I'll call you out on it. That being said, please call me out on my own shit.
I become obsessed with things pretty easily, be it a fandom of some sort, an art style, a religion, or a spice. Current obsessions include magical realism, finding weird joints to crack, composting, beehives, making instruments (preferably out of antlers and bones). I can talk your ears off about opera and various vocal techniques. Just tell me when to stop. I will, I promise.
I also have Generalized Anxiety Disorder. It's not severe, but it's there nonetheless. Also, is not the abreviation GAD hilarious? I mean, come on. Hilarity. Right there.
Anything by: Jacqueline Carey, Jamaica Kinkaid, Dr. Seuss, C.G. Jung, The Harry Potter series, Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Books of note: A Small Place, Speaker for the Dead, The Book of Lost Things, The Sneeches.
Food: Pho (pronounced "fuh" and said with an upwards inflection) is an all time favorite. Ethiopian, Indian, or any other food that's appropriate to eat with your hands. I grew up eating homemade Mexican food (my step-mom's from Mexico) and it is my ultimate source of comfort. I recently started making mole and I strive to be the king of moles.
Serious Business Times:
I studied opera. I have an affinity for High Renaissance choral music, especially Gesualda. I love anything "art music" from the 20th century (seriously, I enjoy listening to John Cage, but George Crumb is off the fucking charts amazing). I was also part of a modern music ensemble. I write "music" for it on occasion. Sometimes I will make a door squeak over and over as I listen to the sound. No joke, this is what I do with almost all my spare time.
Non-Serious Business Time:
Oh, I also happen to like contemporary popular music too. I'm overly fond of weird sounding singer/songwriters like Regina Spektor, Imogen Heap, Joanna Newsom, and Fiona Apple. I like dubstep and dirty hipster music. I once studied Run DMC for a music class and found myself pleasantly surprised. Music doesn't have to be intellectually stimulating all the time, though: Ke$ha's Cannibal is my anthem.
Shows: the Dr. Whoniverse is the shit. I love Buffy, Archer, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Adventure Time, and other geeky fare. Guilty pleasures include: Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition, Honey Boo Boo, Spongebob, and Teen Mom.
Don't hate; masturbate.
Also, one of my favorite webcomics just revealed that one of the characters is trans and I almost died of pure fankid overload. (I automatically love you if you know which webcomic I'm talking about.)
My tea making kit.
Really good myths.
A good anatomy lecture.
