I came to Berlin for work, which means I work some of the time and read Autostraddle all of the time…

What I Like
this is a really difficult question. Steppenwolf (Herman Hesse) comes everywhere with me, as does a lot of poetry. Fingersmith by Sarah Waters, obvs. Kushiel’s Legacy – the whole damn thing – of Jacqueline Carey. And I love The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. And just about any post-apocalyptic dystopian fiction that’s out there.
let the right one in. run lola run. CLUE!
|Favorite TV Shows||
Battlestar Galactica. I haven’t finished it so please do not tell me anything about it at all. Yes, Firefly. And a lot of anime, especially yuri! I’m almost done with Maria-sama ga miteru, and other favorites are Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Utena (!!), Princess Tutu (not yuri; still fabulous), and Serial Experiments Lain (which is yuri, I don’t care what you tell me).
I also love Chopped.
here we go.
classical music: bach, purcell, handel, mozart, brahms, anybody writing 1890 – 1920 (schoenberg, debussy, ravel, szymanowski, kurt weill), kaija saariaho, osvaldo golijov, and the operas of puccini, which I am not ashamed of.
non-classical music: björk is the queen of my heart. also tegan&sara, joanna newsom, massive attack, imogen heap, metric, the black keys, kings of convenience, feist, florence+the machine, gillian welch, jolie holland, lhasa de sela, st. vincent, scissor sisters, and anything ella fitzgerald has ever touched.
|Favorite Thing to Autostraddle||
all queer formalist poets I’ve found so far! (Millay, Bishop, Auden, Thom Gunn, Mary Oliver, Lorca, Sappho…) as well as Rilke, a lot.
