Anonymous asked: Do you collect rare books?
Not on purpose, those books just sort of found their way to me though chance and I was very happy to welcome them.
Anonymous asked: how is that Edgar Allan Poe book you were restoring?
He is doing very well thanks for asking, at the moment he has recovered and is enjoying some time on the cabinet next to a signed first edition of Coraline, and a hand-bound first edition of The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea.
Between the Bars - Elliott Smith
People you’ve been before that you
Don’t want around anymore
That push and shove and won’t bend to your will
I’ll keep them still
Anonymous asked: what do you love?
I love the absurd and everything that is broken, dirty, or lost because those are the things I relate to. I love the art that makes you sick and doubtful, I love Marion Cotillard and not being sober, I love riding a motorcycle in the night but above all things I love movies.
