About Me

Short version: I'm a middle-aged, somewhat damaged, artistic (also autistic) nerd who enjoys good science fiction, good music, good food, and friendly critters with fewer than eight legs. It should be noted at this point that I consider the appendages on cephalopods to be arms, not legs, and as such they are exempt from this rule.

Longer version: I think the most relevant bit of information for this website is that I am a collector. I differ from the standard collector in that rather than collect one specific thing, I collect collections. Postcards, matchbooks, foreign currency, buttons, fabric, toys, t-shirts... You name it, I probably have a few dozen of it carefully tucked away somewhere for future use or display. At this point you might think I'm a hoarder, and under different circumstances that might actually be the case. However, I take great care to cultivate only those things which are of genuine interest or use to me, and I like to pare down my hoard as often as possible by giving my extra things away or by participating in swaps like those listed on this website.

Shortest version: COME TRADE JUNK WITH ME!!!

Favorite Music

AFI, The Offspring, Strung Out, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, The Rebel Spell, The Phenomenauts, The Stellar Corpses

VNV Nation, KMFDM, Imperative Reaction, Left Spine Down, Rabbit Junk, Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, 3Teeth, Neuroticfish, Covenant

Amanda Palmer, Gogol Bordello, Jonathan Colton, Zoe Keating, Unwoman

Confused yet?

Favorite Books

Book-books: Anything by Lois McMaster Bujold. Most things by Neil Gaiman and Cherie Priest. Some Ursula LeGuin, some Kurt Vonnegut. Both of them turned weird when they got older.

Comics: Tank Girl, Serenity Rose, Nimona, Sandman, Persepolis... And Saga. You need to go read Saga right now. Seriously. Do it.

Favorite Television

Doctor Who, TORCHWOOD, Red Dwarf, Firefly, Farscape, Star Trek, Warehouse 13, Futurama, Archer, Sherlock, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Adventure Time, Rick and Morty, Supernatural... Yeah, okay, I said it. I'm one of the SuperWhoLock people. Don't judge me.

Artists

Alan Forbes, Frank Kozik, Tara McPherson, Megan Lara, Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Stitchmind.

Favorite Crafts

Illustration, painting, collage, sculpture, jewelry, costuming, props, clothing design... pretty much everything except charcoal, watercolor, and oils.

Comment: I love Lynx cats too. Here we have the Bobcat (one of the four types of Lynx in North America). They have such funny personalities. I live on a ranch in a rural area of Texas and we keep game cameras out at our feeding stations. The Bobcats often come there to water with their kits. When we are in a drought cycle we sometimes get them on our porch getting a bit of the food we put out for our cats. They make the strangest sounds - when you are camping and they are calling it sounds like a person screaming.

Comment: Thanks for the great looking recipe. I'm going to try it as soon as I can get to the store for the lime juice. I like me some Clash, Sex Pistols, DKM, Flogging Molly, Misfits... but I don't think I could do a cruse :-)

Comment: Got this out the mail yesterday after a weekend trip. I still have more to explore in it, since I haven't had time to sit with it but before I forget to rate... This was such an excellent swap to receive. I learned about a ton of new bands, and share favorites with some of them. When I first really had a mental break, and was working in therapy to recover, I would listen to "Shake It Out" and sob on the bus/on a bench/wherever I happened to be. And yes, Noire is excellent, and intense. It gives me anxious stomach pain over social collapse, and it's also beautiful. And agreed about The Blinding Dark and Modern Ruin, too. Northern Light will probably always be my favorite, and it's an album that I come back to over and over again. I really appreciated your earnest openness and passion. Regret that we don't live closer together to go to shows. 10/5

Dear Kat,

I was surprised to see a postcard in the mail :) Thank you so much for having me as an unassigned partner in your swap :) Well this art card seems very relevant to me as it was from the ASIAN Art Museum. Hihi! :* Thank you!
