"I'm not actually replying to most of them; the issue is actually flagging all the offensive posts.  To be honest, I'm more concerned about my followers and subscribers, because some of the comments are definitely triggering.... :-/"

Hi guys!  So, recently, I posted a video called "Dear Straight men: How to Respond to "Sorry, I'm a Lesbian."And everything was all fine and good, until 4chan found it.And the comment page is now an onslaught of victim-blaming, homophobia, and comments about how fat I am, how ugly I am, and how I deserve to be raped. Repeatedly. Also, really racist BS like this: "she's just mad because her dad stole her eggroll when she was 8"(I'm asian)and also, some other lovely examples that hit all of the…See More

Profile Information

What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
English Lit/Music Nerdfighter
About Me:
My name is Kris. I'm going to be lame and post this profile from my facebook, because I really like putting a lot of thought into these things, and I can't do that right now, so:
I'm going to constantly re-vamp this profile from now on, because life is liquid and I'm determined to go lightning fast.

Yes, yes I do love alliteration.

Nutritional Facts:

Kris is 120% of your daily awesome-ness intake. Just sayin'.

100% Chinese. 100% American. 25 grams of sugar. 100 grams of capsaicin. Contains no height. 75% of your daily nerd intake. 50% English Major. 50% Music Major.

And 15% of my time is devoted to thinking about: hot teachers, hot librarians, and hot persons of authority, because I believe that power is sexy and so is knowledge.

Likes: Marzipan. Music. English. The Number 3. Blitz Chess. Harry Potter. Alan Rickman. Artemis Fowl. Winifred Burkle. Willow Rosenburg. Dr. Horrible. Joss Whedon. Rain Dances. Elegantly cooked eggs. Long, hot, soaks in bath tubs. Long, cold, soaks in the ocean. Queers. Reading anything. Piano. Slam Poetry. Liquid eyeliner. Dark Lipstick. Short Skirts. Knee socks. Thigh High stockings. Corsets. Sexy Dances. Funky colored hair. Listening to Bach. Sherlock Holmes.The Boondock Saints.

Dislikes: Fakes. "Whore" as a derogatory term. Quick Showers. Non-electric toothbrushes. Weird, non-local pronunciations of "Norfolk." People who DON'T love queers. Nicholas Cage. Badly written erotica. Being censored in coffee shops for dropping the f-bomb.Stubbed toes. Playing Bach. Being called "little lady." The Chronicles of Narnia Movies.

Should be drunk with: bitches who know how to take life by the balls and still look pretty.

~~~~~~~~~~

I'm a big fan of blitz chess because I like playing things fast and loose, but I hold things tight to my chest.

I go by "Kris." It's short, and easy to remember.

Just like me.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
Books: Harry Potter, The Phantom of the Opera, The Phantom Tollbooth, The Ender's Game series, A Brave New World, To Kill a Mockingbird, Sir Apropos of Nothing, The Secret History (By Donna Tart), Body and Soul (By Frank Conroy), anything by Pat Conroy, anything by Tamora Pierce, anything by Scott Westerfeld (with the exception of that last Uglies book; it was way confusing and I just had to stop reading it), anything by Roald Dahl, and absolutely anything by Edith Wharton.

Movies: The Boondock Saints. Anything with Alan Rickman or Jeremy Irons (in particular: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and that 1999 version of Lolita that Jeremy Irons was in), Hot Fuzz, The Luzhin Defense, IQ, Cruel Intentions, Bring it On, and all those really cheesy dance movies about ballet vs. hip hop. I KNOW. It's embarrassing, but I really, REALLY like watching pretty girls and boys do flips.

Music: I love nerdcore (MC Lars ftw!), The Soho Dolls, Shiny Toy Guns, Kate Nash, Angelspit, Regina Spektor, The Kinks, The Clash, Classic rock in general, The Glee version of ANYTHING, obscure modern Jazz artists, and really weird minimalism phase music. I also love going out and dancing, so yes, I am actually a fan of Jay Sean. And Pitbull.

More: I love making guacamole. I love cooking. I love playing the piano, the alto sax, the Chinese flute, the hulu tze, the xylophone, the bells, the tin whistle, the baroque recorder, and a whole bunch of other things I can't remember.

Fav Comics/Graphic Novels: Clumsy by Jeff Brown, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen by Alan Moore, Runaways, and The Umbrella Academy

Fav TV Shows: I am obsessed with ANYTHING JOSS WHEDON PUTS OUT. Also, How I met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Gossip Girl, and Glee. Omg. Glee.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
you know those really metallic bows you get for christmas presents? Yeah, those. Or the really frilly ones that go on top of birthday presents.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Dylan.

My entry for the "Be the Change" Campaign

I actually had to record this twice, because I realized I needed to edit the language down a bit.


Anyways, I'm not pandering for votes. I just honestly want people to get this message--that even if their life sucks right now because of sexual persecution, things will get better. And people they don't even know will always love them, just for being…

I am a system of paradoxes (paradoxi?) surrounded by a fleshy shell. ....Ew?

So I'm new to actually posting here but I'm going to anyways because I love blogging and I love people.
Coming Soon! : A guacamole recipe that will make you believe in little guacamole angels dancing along your taste buds.


So anyways, I'm a system of paradoxi. I contradict myself...a lot. There are five major ones (and quite frankly, I typed all this out before in the little quick add box and then IT CLOSED ITSELF OUT.…
