About Me

Greetings from Madeline in Los Angeles. I'm a newbie to this town, born and raised Michigander. I'm currently looking for work in TV and film production. I love film, music, writing, and photography. I also like traveling. I am a self-proclaimed Anglo-phile.

Being on my own, right now, far away from home, I'd love a friendly package. And seeing as I'm current;y unemployed, I have plenty of time on my hands that I want to fill with making packages for others!

Favorite Music

Architecture in Helsinki, Beirut, Broken Social Scene, Elliott Smith, Fionn Regan, Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová, The Go! Team, Harry & The Potters, I’m From Barcelona, Jon Brion, M. Ward, Mum, The Moldy Peaches, The New Pornographers, Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Sleater-Kinney, Spoon, The Stone Roses, Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent, Talking Heads, Wilco, Wolf Parade, Yann Tiersen

Favorite Movies

A Very Long Engagement, Amelie (my favorite of all time!!!), Dazed and Confused, Donnie Darko, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Go-Getter, Grosse Pointe Blank, Harold and Maude, High Fidelity, Hot Fuzz, Juno, Little Miss Sunshine, Once, Pan's Labyrinth, Paris Je'taime, Pride & Prejudice, The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore, The Life Aquatic, The Darjeeling Limited, The Science of Sleep, Shaun of the Dead, The Shawshank Redemption, Superbad, Waking Life, Spoorloos

Favorite Books

A Series of Unfortunate Events, Ender’s Game, Hamlet, Harry Potter 3 & 6, High Fidelity, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Holidays on Ice, Into the Wild, John Keats poetry, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Long Walk, Much Ado About Nothing, Naked, Vita Nuova, The Seventh Son, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Sirens of Titan, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Where the Wild Things Are, Alice in Wonderland, A Wrinkle in Time

Favorite Television

The Office, Arrested Development, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Freaks & Geeks, Extras, Flight of the Conchords

Favorite Crafts

screen printing, clay, knitting, collage, drawing (more like doodling), photography, painting, cooking (?)

Favorite Colors

bright greens, pale blues, yellow, gray, deep purple

Send Me:

  • bright colors (umm, like the ones listed above)
  • I have a strange obsession with looking at people's Moleskine drawings on Flickr, so you could say I love that kind of art . . . . and photography.
  • I love homemade things!
  • Construction paper, cardboard, paint, music -- If I could live in the mind of Michel Gondry, I'd be content.
  • Clothing-wise, I'd say I'm a medium edging on small, but I am 5'9''. I wear size 8.5 shoes.
  • I collect things "Alice in Wonderland" (though, I'm not that big on the Disney stuff).
  • Vintage everything
  • Origami Paper
  • Screenprinting supplies

Don't Send Me:

  • pastel colors
  • cutsie things - I love cats, but please don't send me fuzzy kittens on tree branches ("Hang in there!")
  • dark, gothic stuff
  • I don't scrap book!
  • Dotee Dolls, Inchies, etc.
