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: Thanks Kat! I received the swap today. Love the goodies, especially the fish note card and the girlie matchbook. I actually had that same one years ago, but got rid of it. Glad to have it back! Hope you can host a part 2 of this swap in the future. I bought a stash of old nudie magazines from a friend on IG, so I've got plenty of ephemera ^^
Response: Keep an eye out for Lewd Ephemera 2: Electric Motorboat.

Comment: Thanks for the PC! I see what you mean about hippie>punk. Tank Girl has been on my To Read list for awhile. Maybe this is a sign I should check it out already. :)
Response: Two Girls One Tank is probably my favorite.

Comment: What a beautiful squished penny you picked for me ❤️ Thank-you for hosting this swap and also using such awesome stamps to mail it to me ❤️😍 Receiving coin swaps, makes for a happy day for me, because they can combine my two favourite hobbies of collecting stamps and coins 😍😍

Comment: Thank you so much for the buttons and pin! I loved the way you decorated the envelope, especially the K-2S0 stamp! That's one of my favourite droids/characters in Star Wars.

Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely mail! I absolutely adored how you decorated it. Very Halloween theme which I rally like. I had a quite hard time to get your collage out of the envelope, but I got it. I really enjoyed to go through it and find all the little details. Thank you for that experience! Stay safe and healthy :)

RE: Ugly PC swap -- I don't actually have any "ugly" postcards but I do have some that I pass over for others and in the end, become stragglers in my stock.

I love the library myself too and I actually sent you my favourite location. I just happen to have tons of those in my stock. My apologies for not explaining that when I sent you my postcard.

Cheers.

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:)
