-I like books.
-I try and read 900 pages a month to keep myself reading.

-I make/compose metal music, too. I am the one on the right.
-I also make comedy movies. Here's one I co-wrote, co-produced, co-directed, acted in, edited, and so on.

Not just a story of her short life, but an examination of how, through the centuries, we've interpreted it, shaped it, and perhaps myth-ized it.
