Gigantic video game & RPG nerd. Science fiction/fantasy enthusiast (where all da queer in my brain comes from! Thanks, Ursula K. Le Guin!). Linguaphile. Got my BA in English Lit before UCSC offered a critical theory specialization, but I saw Judith Butler & bell hooks lecture so it's all good! Love me some skater kicks, and I seriously rocked the chain wallet when it was unironically cool.

What I Like
TO THE LIGHTHOUSE!! City of Saints & Madmen. The Left Hand of Darkness.
|Favorite Queer Books||
Le Guin's the Telling, which is nominally about anthropology but really about stages of grief and homophobia. The Privilege of the Sword by Ellen Kushner, which has the only young female bisexual protag I've ever encountered. Ammonite by Nicola Griffith! The lesbian Left Hand of Darkness, oh my gosh do I love it. The new spec fiction genderqueer anthology Beyond Binary. YEEEEEEEEEE
My absolute favorite movie is l'Armee des Ombres, made in 1960s New Wave era France but set during the WWII French Resistance. It speaks to me on so many levels: philosophical, emotional, and historical…and it's directed by a guy famous for badass New Wave gangster movies, so visually it is awesome. Yeah.
Outrage. The Rape of Europa. The Sound and the Fury.
|Favorite TV Shows||
Bones (aspies on tv ftw!). Doctor Who bla bla, Life on Mars (the original thanks ever so), Ashes to Ashes, the Hour, SPACED.
I would never abuse netflix to watch Bridget Regan in terrible fantasy shows, no, never!
Oh no. I love so much music it's ridiculous…Opera (gluck, puccini, debussy, beethoven yes he wrote an opera it's called fidelio and it's got pants roles and genderqueer and it's delicious), video game soundtracks, Star Wars & Lord Of the Rings, Pink Floyd, Robert Johnson, Bessie Smith, uh, yeah. Anything with a slide guitar.
i had this amazing club in las Vegas of all places that was white bread, ham, turkey, CRANBERRY SAUCE, lettuce, and mayo. YES.
