What I Like

Favorite Books

The Good Soldier Svejk, 1984, Faust… uh… others? I read anything with letters in it, pretty much.

Favorite Queer Books

I don’t really know any yet…

Favorite Movies

I’m not the biggest movie-watcher, but if I had to pick one, I’d probably say Until the End of the World. Also rather enjoyed 2001, Saving Face and Goodbye Lenin. And while it is a bit difficult (emotionally) to watch, Bure Baruta (aka Cabaret Balkan) is also up there on my list.

Favorite TV Shows

Star Trek (DS9, TNG, VOY, TOS), Bomb Girls

Favorite Music

Pretty much everything from A capella to Zydeco, really.

But if I had to pick one singe favourite song ever, it’d have to be “Non, je ne regrette rien” by Edith Piaf.

Favorite Sandwich

simple ham and cheese, or just the cheese…

Favorite Quotes

“I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones.” – John Cage

Favorite Thing on Autostraddle.com

This post from Laneia:

“the thing is, avery, if you think a woman’s physical body is yours to judge and condemn, you don’t belong here. autostraddle isn’t for you. your outdated ideas are worthless to us. and i mean all of us — the queers, the bis, the gay, lesbian, questioning, trans*, intersex, cis, genderqueer, agender, poly, omni, asexual, pansexual, label-free, butch, dyke, femme, boi, andro, ag, stud, grrrl, old, young, every shade, every race, every ability, every background and foreground and literally everything in between — we ALL repudiate you and your kind.

it will never be our job to make you feel comfortable or represented here, because this space is not for you.”

Favorite Writers

Jaroslav Hasek, Pierre Berton, Rejto Jeno, Goethe, Bertholt Brecht, um… others.
