My Website

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.

Pronouns: She / Her

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: Wow! Thank you so much for the wonderful package of fun things! It's all great but I especially love the color-changing fabric swatches that are a delight to play with, the KMFDM postcard (I have always appreciated their album art and it's great to have some again!), the NIN patch (!), the pins, and the keychain. I truly appreciate the effort you put into making this swap special! Thanks again, and take care!
Response: Did I send you a VNV Nation patch as well? I can’t remember. If not, let me know and I’ll send you one (I made a stencil!). If I did but you’re not a fan, feel free to pay it forward. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, let me know and I’ll send you a mix.

Hello,
Thank you for the extra postcard in the PC Roulette July 2020 swap. I am imagining the person on the postcard is screaming into it their frustrations:) I hope you do apply for the "artist in residence" at Recology. If you get it I would love to hear about your art journey...seriously do write me about it:)
