a tropicana of the mind

dymphna: media subversion, media whoring, pop culture mayhem with a splash of monkey, and always answering to the name of kate bolin

a tired 25 year old working towards british citizenship and a lizardmen army, spending all her time adjusting and consuming. "buffy" & "angel" addict with a need for grant morrison, elizabeth hand, comic books, television, cheap pop culture, movies, media media media consume consume consume. slasher, archivist, fat-assed fan and always always close to cracking up.

or something.

or not.
