Favorite Books

In no particular order, fiction authors and books: HP (though I tend to read more FF than the actual books), Discworld, Invitation to a Beheading, The Diamond Age, Clive Barker, Ursula K. LeGuin, Christopher Moore, Jacqueline Carey, Tanith Lee, Anne McCaffrey, Octavia Butler.

I read a lot of non-fiction for my research. If you're into that sort of thing, my research uses folks like R.W. Connell, J. Halberstam, Michel Foucault. My work is on masculinity, fascism, and contemporary U.S. politics.

If you recommend to me a book, I will read it once my dissertation is finished :P For pleasure right now, I read things I can consume in microdoses. I spend a lot of time on r/nosleep

Favorite Movies

May, Infection, Ringu, Dirty Filthy Love, Institute Benjiminta, Ichi the Killer, Phantom of the Opera (The Silent Film), London After Midnight, Uzumaki, Jeffrey, Heathers, Cannibal! The Musical, Orgazmo, Audition, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, The Virgin Suicides, Anything involving Takahashi Miike, Cheesy and Unrealistic Hacker/Nerd films &c

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking, crocheting, re-purposing of all varieties, painting (badly), takin' pictures of things (as distinct from photography) and generally lots of things which I regret not making more time for.

About Me

I am a nascent muckraker, genteel lady of morals Victorian, extender of lovingkindness. I love growing things and playing in the dirt. I want endless summers.

I'm a PhD student in the anthropology of religion, and also mother to a charming toddler.

I'm super leftist, so make of that what you will.

I'm also an atheist who studies religion.

And I get severe swap anxiety, so if you're my partner, and you have performance anxiety about your swap, just know we're in this together.

Comment: Thanks so much for the Stone Temple Pilots photo! That must have been a great concert! And I love the postcard, I'll definitely check out the Discworld series. A vampire trying to do photography seems like a super interesting concept!
