10 Lowest Bands:
This is impossible to answer. I don't know. Honestly.
I don't spend any time thinking about which bands I hate.

Do you enjoy reading? If so, what are some of your favorite books/authors? I guess. I spend a lot of time reading current events/political things, not in books, but online. But two authors I really like are Sarah Vowell and David Sedaris.
Films and that kind of shit: I have a strong feeling I'm going to like Where The Wild Things Are. I like Annie Hall and Closer and In America and Lean On Me and To Be and To Have and Rivers and Tides.
Job Situation: I have a job interview in a week to work at the circulation desk at my school's library. I am in a masters program in educational psychology.

What interests you? Politics, psychology, economics, all this:

Gustav Klimt's Tree of Life

Alphonse Mucha's stained glass

Charles Rennie Mackintosh's drawing style in his watercolor flowers
(It's like Schiele's and Klimt's; I'm not sure who influenced whom to do what.)

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Central Park (specifically Sheep Meadow)

Also, there's this girl upstairs and she's making me want to learn more about life in and the political dynamics of former Soviet states like Georgia and Chechnya and to engage more in life in general— to go outside and meet many, many people and to grow and live life and progress and to not look back but to enjoy adulthood and the Spring and Summer in New York City.

Dislikes / What/whom do you hate?




a lack of appreciation for that which is beautiful and/or deserving of attention/respect

the act of adults neglecting children

What do you think of Slipknot? Nothing.
George W: I no longer care.
What is/was your GPA? 3.7-ish
How many languages can you speak?: Just the one fluently. (I took three years of French in high school and college.)
What makes you think that you'll rate? Because I'm the only applicant in the past three years and I believe that one of the fifteen people who have this on their list will at some point see this.

Where did you promote us?

Your promo material is understandably MIA.

Anywho, I'm in the midst of renovating another one of these things (a place that'd appreciate and accept guys like ogo and mick) that has somehow managed sustainability for 5 years and may be in danger of dying. So that's honestly the reasoning that brought me here— the idea that some degree of like-minded empathy might exist here, though admittedly this is very much like venturing into some cold, dark cave alone yelling and hearing nothing but the echos. But, you know, people do that; it's atypical but not so strange.
