About meFiction, music, and film fiend who has maddeningly little time for any of the above. Always attempting to drag others into madcap scheming, if I haven't fallen asleep. I wish too hard for a better world. The only ghost I'd like to meet is Jacques Derrida, as long as he refrained from criticizing my French.

About my libraryFull of good vocabulary and tragic sentiments.
