I'm a copywriter for a retail website; I write about toys, mostly. And I'm pretty involved in lefty political activism. It's my thing. I have no illusions that any one group has all of the answers to fix everything that's wrong with the world, but it makes me happy to try.
Music: Belle & Sebastian, Jellyfish, The Posies, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, The Smiths, Elliott Smith, the Zombies, Of Montreal, Nick Drake, the Lucksmiths, the Dead Milkmen, the Descendents, etc.
TV: Total cartoon fiend. Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Venture Bros, Archer, Simpsons, Bob's Burgers. Plus Buffy.
I also really enjoy coffee with whiskey. In the matter of fact, I'm drinking coffee with whiskey RIGHT NOW.
