ash / erik †'s Interests


i'm an avid enjoyer of many things but am currently interested in games such as rusty lake, we happy few, i have no mouth and i must scream, hylics, disco elysium, fear and hunger, 8:11, jazzpunk, resident evil, cry of fear, yakuza, half-life, tf2, (all) chilla's art / puppet combo games, and others in these similar grapevines. i also like world-building args like the mystery flesh pit national park, vita carnis, and local 58. i read frequently, draw on the occasion, am a personal tutor, and (despite not showcasing as such on this profile) love the color pink.


andrew bird. black country, new road. marika hackman. dirty projectors. ethel cain. flotation toy warning. red hot chili peppers. grandaddy. fat white family. iron & wine. m, ward. mountain man. maps & atlases. great lake swimmers. kevin morby. (...)


i'm a big horror movie fan. but in general my current favs are the wailing, the grand budapest hotel, 2001's space odyssey, kairo, minari, &. everything everywhere all at once.


can't really think of any right now but i'm rewatching dorohedoro, arcane, and nbc's hannibal between study breaks......

literally viktor from arcane.......................??
would LOVE to talk to you abt kafka!!!!!!!!! :^O my favorite of his works are his diaries!!
my favorite quote that i hope you will like as well:

"I am descended from my parents, am linked to them and my sisters by blood, am sensible of it (...) Sometimes this bond of blood too is the target of my hatred; the sight of the double bed at home, the used sheets, the nightshirts carefully laid out, can exasperate me to the point of nausea, can turn me inside out; it is as if I had not been definitively born, were continually born anew into the world out of the stale life in that stale room, had constantly to seek confirmation of myself there, (...) it clogs my feet which want to run, they are still stuck fast in the original shapeless pulp. That is how it sometimes is." - OCTOBER 18th, 1916

that being said................................. HOW ARE YOU DOING!!! i hope you're having a great week. text me anytime i would love to talk!
