I am dating one of the loveliest people on the planet. He’s funny and warm and brilliant and talented, and treats me incredibly well. He is also a total weirdo with many emotions.

Wednesday night, I read at the 7th installment of the NOW HEAR THIS! Hear/Hear reading series with Angela Szczepaniak and Elisabeth De Mariaffi. The back room we inhabited… Read more »

The only thing I know to do when something ends is to start something new. I’m Natalie Zed. I write CD reviews, live reviews, and blog entries for Hellbound and Metallus Maximus. I write poetry about S&M, gastroporn, comic books, video games, and heavy metal. I’ve never been very good at keeping my mouth shut.
