Axe me something.   I like: Doctor Who, Torchwood, Golden Girls, Heavy Weights, Watchmen, Futurama, X-Files, the 1950s, retro future/space age, tattoos, chubby dudes and cool stuff.
I am: an assistant editor and sound editor (professionally) and an editor (freelance). I draw comics and take photos, but not enough. I live with my boyfriend and my cat, who are both furry and cute.

I’m sort of all set on books to read right now, but if anyone knows any good true crime books that I haven’t read, let me know…

I’ve read In Cold Blood, Helter Skelter, Zodiac, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (which I never even thought of as a true crime/mystery book), The Devil in the White City, and Columbine.

The books I listed were all really good and really well-written. I’ve started some others that I just can’t get into because they don’t have any style. I haven’t tried Ann Rule’s book, just because there are so many and I worry they’re just pulpy and shallow. I’m sort of interested in reading something about the whole Waco thing, but I haven’t found much.

The Clutter family; Herbert, Bonnie, Nancy (16) and Kenyon (15).
I find these pictures hard to look at.

Amen.
I saw a trailer recently with Sharon Tate. Similar reaction.

EDIT: Bryant just asked me what I was looking at, and I was like, “The Clutters,” and he shook his head and gave me a, “wtf?” look. Fair enough.
