In short

  • I'm the same age as Charlie in the perks of Being a Wallflower, love the Great American Novelists of the Latter Twentieth Century, and I descend from a long line of artists who've faded into obscurity, if they were ever noted at all. I am not noticeable for any reason, save my flawless grammar and great use of run-on sentences. You may be confused as to how that works, but all I mean to say is that I pen long sentences which technically are grammatically correct. I adore theatre, alternative music, and books- so there it is, that's me.

  • My claims to fame is probably my virtuous grammer skill, which is really really good, and maybe my vocabulary, which is also pretty good, and also write kind of good, or so I would of like to think.

  • 2) The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. It's like a throbbing pulsating moaning whirling neon mindflipping psychadelic space exploration in the throes of death and the midst of ecstacy. It is beautiful.

    1) The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It made me who I am today, for better or for worse. Most likely better.
  • Tom Wolfe's I Am Charlotte Simmons.
  • Outside on a misty 60-degree day.
  • Poetry (for myself), scripts, and articles for the Berkeley-based Chintz Zine.

    I'm not that good, but I am friends with the editor! And I do a lot of the e-mail correspondence.
  • Poetry: Experimental, Narrative, Personal / Confessional, Political

  • Beatrice, that wily cunning orphan. She's bitching and so is Shakespeare. Although he would probably be horrified by my use of old slang to describe a genius who revolutionized the English language.
  • Tom Wolfe, Capote, Shakespeare, et cetera.
