We are so pretensious, we feel not the need to update.

1.pictureCollapse )
2. Radiohead
Sigur Ros
The Postal Service
The Weakerthans
3. Cats, the musical
4. Relate most? Darling, it would obviously be Scarlett O'Hara. I am a ruthless bitch who gets what she wants. They say I use people. I say that they're happier this way.
5. Music - I play, I sing, I WRITE. I have obsure tastes.
My writing - poetry (and in freestyle verse, too)! I'm also a stickler for grammar.
My clothing - I don't wear brand names and shop at thrift stores. Black is my favorite color.

My Pretentious Application. [16 Jun 2004|11:07pm]

[ mood | quixotic ]

1. I dont allow anyone to photograph me. I feel it captures my soul, and restrict me to a piece of paper. We can't have that, now can we?

2. Sigur Ros. Bjork. Rammenstein (theyre German, they must be cool. right?) Haustchenfleishen. (theyre German, you probably wouldnt know them. you pathetic piece of shit poseur.) And William Hung.

3. OMG I loved 10 Things I Hate About You. *cough* I mean my favorite movie is Jean Luc Godard's Breathless . It's a silent French film. I know, youre thinking, it cant be THAT good, its not German! but I feel the entire movie is a metaphor for life, our internal struggles with sanity and emotion. Very powerful.

4. I am too unique and original to be compared to a character from a book. Because I am alternative and sad and mysterious.

5. Pretentiousness = self- absorption. So the answer to your question is myself, of course.

I'm sure you'll enjoy the pictures. Really.

Favorite bands, in no real order:
1.) Einsturzende Neubauten. You just cant beat Germans with power tools.
2.) Sisters of Mercy.
3.) Laibach. Austrians are almost as good as Germans.
4.) Foetus.
5.) Skinny Puppy. Canadian, and mainstream as hell, but they might be second on this list if Hot Topic didnt carry their T shirts.

Favorite movie:
A tie between Tetsuo: The Iron Man, and Soylent Green. Because its people.

Book character:
Patrice Mersault from Albert Camus' "The Stranger" and "A Happy Death."

Things I'm pretentious about:
Clove cigarettes. They're black for christ's sake. Martial arts. Nothing is better than Kung Fu. Korean martial arts are for pussies looking for trophies. Books. People who read Stephen King, Tom Clancy, and Dean Koontz are pseudo-intellectuals. Music, most of all. Nu metal and emo kids are so far beneath people who like music with talent behind it. Religion is another one.

[17 Nov 2003|09:03pm]

Music: Belle & Sebastian, Built Like Alaska, Bjork, Blonde Redhead, [why the fuck do these all start with B?] Any and all traditional Italian folk music.

Movie: Harold and Maude

Character: Frankly, I'm too self-involved to wholeheartedly identify with fictional characters. I'll name Hunter S. Thompson, for being an insane, ruthless, self-absorbed genius- A good part of his autobiography is probably fictional anyway.

Pretentions: Art (all artists are pretentious to some degree), vocabulary (nothing pleases me like giving an eloquent, scathing tirade), winning arguments (otherwise known as "verbal flagellation"), and style.

Pics: under the cutCollapse )

MeCollapse )

2. 5 fave bands-Ac/Dc, Buddy Holly, The Clash, Glassjaw, Fall Out Boy
3. Fave movie-Rocky Horror Picture Show
4. What fictional character (from a book) do you feel you most relate to? That kid from The Giver because he hallucinated stuff or something.
5. What are you most pretentious about? Smoking. I love love love cigarettes. I love the way they look, I love watching the smoke blow all over. I smoke constantly. I try to make others smoke. I make people take pictures of me smoking. I'm obsessed.

Trying to play by the rules here... Four yes votes, one no, and it was *months* ago... Am I in or out? Don't need a stamp, just want to participate.

So I'm curious.

Does this community actually do anything, or is just like any other community where people join and then forget about it, only with an entrance exam?

[ mood | hungry ]

2. Aphex Twin, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Nirvana, Lords of Acid, Mindless Self Indulgence
3. Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I like John Waters movies too
4. Harvey from The Thief of Always kind of reminds me of me when I was younger
5. Visual art, painting and photography in particular. So it irritates me that this only asks for favorite musical artists.
