About Me

Sam Lowry in training.


Fiction, essays, haikus. Animals. Battling oppression through procrastination and general time-wasting. Fast-spreading and wildly inaccurate internet gossip. Impeaching the entire Bush administration. Spreading good grammar everywhere I go.

Favorite Movies

Life of Brian, Brazil, Adventures of Baron Munchausen...well, let's just shorten this list and say "pretty much all things Python- and Gilliam-related." Donnie Darko; Best in Show; Eternal Sunshine of fhe Spotless Mind; Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (shut up, haters); all three LOTR (of course); Finding Nemo; Princess Mononoke; Spirited Away; Spiderman (shut up, haters); Star Wars (OT); Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (w/Gene Wilder); The Producers (w/Gene Wilder); South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut; Trainspotting...uh, this list could go on and on...

Favorite Music

Mostly mainstream and obvious. Beatles, The Police, Depeche Mode, Ella Fitzgerald, The Cure, David Bowie, Smashing Pumpkins, Interpol, Garbage, Soul Coughing, 80s one-hit wonders, R.E.M., The Smiths, Radiohead, The Dresden Dolls, Prince, Franz Ferdinand (shut up, Trent), Oasis, Otis Redding, U2, Rufus Wainwright, Blur, Weezer (I have to own up to it), Peter Gabriel, and much, much more! And this one band is pretty good...Nine Inch Something or other...

Favorite Books

The Great Gatsby; The Once and Future King; A Liar's Autobiography Vol. VI; the Lucia novels by E.F. Benson; all Harry Potter novels, even though I can't BELIEVE what Rowling had Professor Snape do at the end of Vol. VI.; every word written by David Sedaris, even grocery lists, and especially Naked; In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash; Der Besuch der Alten Dame (The Visit); Se una Notte D'Inverno un Viaggiore (If on a Winter's Night a Traveler); A Moveable Feast; Random Family...and much, much, much, much more!
