What Interests you? Want to Play?

This is a nifty idea to get to know someone better. Why do you like what you like?
These were picked by blurofego

Russian blues - These are very sought after glass beads from the 1800's. Kind of a navy blue and tubular but also faceted. I own a couple dozen. They always bring good stuff when trading.

porcupine hunting - I got into this when I lived in Creede, Colorado. You go into the mountains at night with a spotlight. When you see a porcupine you shine the light in it's eyes which temporarily blinds it. Then your buddy throws a wool blanket over the stunned porcupine. It shoots it's quills into the blanket and runs off, hopefully missing your foot. (Did I mention you should wear tall boots?) Then you get a beer and spend the rest of the night picking quills out of the blanket and sell them in the morning to the Navajo traders down in Alamosa, CO. They were selling for $3 an ounce last time I went hunting in the early 90's.

transmogrification - Cool word yes? You could also say shapeshifting. I like the word because I saw it in a Calvin and Hobbes comic strip. It's not really a hobby but something that happens when I journey sometimes.

poth - carocrow had to remind me of the meaning of this. For those of us with Bird Spirit Medicine, it means, Poop On Their Heads as in when people piss you off, you fly over and poop on their heads.

roadkill recycling - When I find animals, especially birds that have just been killed on the roadways, I take them home and remove all the usable parts. The coyotes get the stuff I can't use. But feathers, bones, talons, claws and fur all get reused or traded or gifted.

print making - In college I got good at making linoleum and woodcut prints. When I have the time I still enjoy carving and printing and then selling my good results.

pyrotechnics - Does this really need explanation? who wouldn't want the chance to blow things up legally? I'm not crazy, I just like to express myself with explosions!

Leave a comment and I will pick 7 of your interests for you to list in your own lj.

I love the word Defenestrate.

It means to throw out a window.

By the by, have you sent the terror yet? :P

American Gods
American Gods is one of my favorite books, it's written by Niel Gaiman. It's theological fiction: Gaiman exercises his belief that all Gods ever dreamed of have some sort of physical manifestation. Excellent novel.

Elfen Lied
A gory, brutal anime. Hard to watch. Beautiful music in the background. One of the only animes I like anymore. Too complicated for a synopsis.

Damn good guitars. I had one but sold it because I got tired of the floating bridge on it. Well-made, great sounding instruments though.

Accompanies biting, on certain occasions.

North Carolina
Where I went to boarding school for 2 years. Nice place. My kind of weather.

Shaun of the Dead
One of my favorite movies, it really shows what I believe a zombie invasion would be like. There would still be petty drama going on, but there would be some very difficult-to-deal-with situations as well. At the same time, it's very comedic.

My favorite way to take a tequila shot is the german way. Instead of using the lime and salt, have a slice of orange, sprinkle cinnamon on it, and that's your chaser. Tastes like sitting in front of a fireplace with hot cocoa.

I just love Tequila or better yet Mezcal straight. It settles my stomach.
