My name is Joanna... I'm a female from rva (Richmond). It's really hard to narrow it down to five favorite bands so I'll offer some current obsessions. I keep listening to the Magnetic Fields, Stars, Rilo Kiley, Tegan and Sara, Architecture in Helsinki, and The Postal Service. I'm actually seeing Tegan & Sara in January and Stars (again) in February!! Five of my all-time favorite songs include 1). Fleetwood Mac, Gypsy; 2) Mirah - Sweepstakes Prize; 3.) R.E.M. - Nightswimming; 4.) Dire Straits - Romeo and Juliet; and my current song on repeat is Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Over and Over (Lost and Found). I'm obsessed with movies and have been studying film in quite a few classes at UVA, so without thinking about it too hard, I'll list Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Donnie Darko, American Beauty, About a Boy, and Vanilla Sky. If you want to see all my favorite movies and music, you can check out my myspace account.... my name there is In terms of independent movies... Pieces of April is incredible (Stephen Merritt did the whole soundtrack which rules). I loved Junebug, Me and You and Everyone we Know, and also Millions. For local/underground bands, I love to go to shows in Charlottesville; I'm always looking for new music; I think there's nothing better to do than going to a show. My past times include - and of course beyond loving film and music - painting, writing, spending time with my puppy, hanging out at coffee shops and cafes, and most recently, cooking! I'm sorry this wasn't more specific... it's so hard to list favorites and really pinpoint interests like that. I want to be in this community to hopefully interact with local folks who have similar interests to me and can introduce me to things I may not be aware of as going on. Cheers!
