My name is Jude; currently living and breathing in the city of Toronto. I'm a gal in her early 20's studying to be a Graphic Designer. I posted here awhile ago but wanted to give it another go.
I'm interested in film and digital photography. I currently own 10 film cameras, 7 of which are vintage. I also own two typewriters from the 60's. I like antiques and vintage fashion/style & furniture. I mean I'm not exclusively into vintage but I find myself intensely drawn to things that are old and with a history attached to it. I also like typography and old fairytale books with illustrations. I am inspired by Art Nouveau, plakatsijl, the Renaissance movement, Romanticism etc.
I like to read about Ancient History/Civilization [Middle Eastern, Egyptian, South American & Asian]. I like learning about mummies and lost/forgotten civilizations. I also LOVE mythology and folklore from different cultures. I'm interested in traditional healing/medicine and overall connection of certain cultures with nature. I'm really big on dreams and dream interpretations.
One of my goals is to travel extensively and experience everything the world has to offer.
So music wise, I like indie/ jazz [from the flapper era int he 1920's-40's], swing/twist music from the 50's to mid 60's. I love Beirut, Andrew Bird, M. Ward, Arcade Fire, the Acorns, The Chordettes, Dion & The Belmonts, Edith Piaf, Ella Fitzgerald, Paul Anka, The Beatles. It really varies.
Films: Amelie, Spirited Away [a lot of Miyazaki films], Pride & Prejudice, BBC Classics [tv series], Count of Monte Cristo, Eternal Sunshine, The Fall, 10 Things i Hate about you.
I tend to rant! Let's be honest though, I won't be adding everyone who requests to be added because I'd like to see if we are compatible first. I'm not really much into manga or fanfics. Also please be 20+ yrs old and not easily offended. Comment and I'll get back to ya. :) Cheers!
