The Horrible Truth About Fruitbats

I was born on Halloween, 1959, in a tiny town in New Hampshire. I'm very attached to a six-foot-two-inch ichthyologist named Dr. Bruce.

My favorite diaries:

comments:   Do you ever feel like someone is leading a parrallel life to yours? She's a redhead! She has a 1959 rancher! She has cute animals (Italian Greyhounds instead of rabbits!) and she's spiritual! Geez. I want to meet this woman!!

My favorite music:

Cocteau Twins
comments:  ...and Dead Can Dance, This Mortal Coil, Love Spirals Downwards...
British Folk Revival
comments:  I love all those morbid ancient British ballads and the updates done on them in the '60's and '70's by bands like Pentangle are superb. And I love Nick Drake, too.
Screamin' Jay Hawkins
comments:  Howlin' Wolf, Earl Hooker, Fats Domino....
Mission of Burma
comments:  ...and the Maps, O+, Big Dipper, Scruffy The Cat, V. You'd have to have lived in Boston in the '80's...
comments:  ...and the Cramps. and Iggy. I love Iggy. And the Ramones. Sentimental value. Oh, and did I mention I love old blues music? Dr. John.....mmmmmmmm.......

My favorite movies:

Withnail & I
comments:  What can I say? It's the '60's male version of my '80's female young adulthood.
comments:  A little known film by Joseph Cornell.
Any pre-1950's horror movies
comments:  I used to stay up and watch these on late night TV with my great aunt Louise, and then my parents would wonder why I was afraid of the dark.
Maya Deren's experimental films
comments:  ...and her films on Voodoo in Haiti as well.
Oscar and Lucinda
comments:  It's a visually gorgeous film. In my childhood I was like Oscar. In my adulthood I've become like Lucinda.

My favorite authors:

Elizabeth Knox
comments:  I'm convinced this woman really has met angels.
comments:  If it weren't for Jack Kerouac I'd still be living in some little town in New Hampshire, probably working at Wal-Mart. I also love Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
Banana Yoshimoto
comments:  She's haunting and invigorating at the same time.
W.Y. Evans-Wentz
comments:  He writes very succintly on two of my favorite subjects - faeries and Tibet.
P.B. Shelley
comments:  Man, just reading about his wild life is inspiring, never mind his poetry!
