amazon heads- friend me!
Or even if you are not an amazon head, feel free to check out.


P.S. The wishlist is really about me keeping track of shit I want to check out for myself. It may be of interest to you, but please don't feel I'm asking for anything cause I'm not! :P Feel free to let me know if you've read anything on my list and your recommendations based upon what you see! :)

I also maintain
wenchwhispers, a community devoted to girltalk amoungst friends. (If you are a female on my friends list you are invited to join. All other women, please ask!)
enfoodsiasts, a community devoted to food enthusiasts.

I hate to be tied to labels, they are TOO confining, but if I had to.... I'm just your average gothic punk rivethead dark-raver hippie chick bookworm into BDSM. A little bit of a nerd and goody two shoes, a little bit of a hellion spunky spitfire full of piss and vinegar. It all depends on which side of the bed I wake up on and where the day takes me.

FYI- I am on sabbatical/retirement form club/concert promoting. If you are trying to reach DTC/Spin THIS!, please go to http://www.dark-tekno.com

what decade does your personality live in?

This will come as no surprise to those that know me. As much as I hated my life in those days, I will always have a huge fondness for the pop culture of the day- I LOVED New Wave when it was still "new", loved the outrageous mod styles, the movies (I'll watch Better Off Dead, Pretty in Pink or Breakfast Club anytime!), etc. I am often told that I am way, way too stuck back in a time warp. Oh well!
