Author has written 3 stories for LXG, and X-Men.

Dictated but not read.

Kurtz has been writing fanfiction since the tender age of ignorance, and owns a smattering of random names throughout genres and sources, author to many a story acclaimed. Unfortunately, Kurtz's tendency towards abandonment leaves many disregarded, with promises of continuance that will never be heeded, despite the author's indignant, self-preservative assurances. It is not on purpose; Kurtz is flighty, and has attachment issues.

"I'm going to try hard this time." Is the proclamation; scribe will remain mum on the subject.

What prose Kurtz manages to write, between time being indolent and time being lazy, borders on Purple. Any poetry is inane, with nonsensical, Eliot rhymes and themes. Kurtz explained to me once it was because poetry comes as vomit, and is as in control of such verse as said bodily sewage's color and occurrence.

It was not a very pleasant conversation, and I have not eaten tuna since.

Such nonsense themes spill into other aspects. Kurtz favors The Mars Volta and Coheed and Cambria, as well as other music that is fantastic, lyrical gibberish with pleasant, if confused harmony. Kurtz enjoys the art of Salvador Dali and Andrew Wyeth, though in regards to the latter, Kurtz adds with an emphatic jab, "Only the half finished ones; the ones they don't sell prints for."

An afterthought: "The bastards."

Above all Kurtz is a lover of literature, both for amusement and insight. Among the much celebrated, personal collection is a stack of Flash comics and nearly every Stephen King novel, most notably the ones with giants spiders and bears and towers that defy logic. Kurtz defends these with a fervor that has, in the past, escalated into the homicidal.

Here, as well, are Kurtz's personal idols: Henry James, Algernon Blackwood, Joseph Conrad, to cite the least well known among a forest of Stoker, Dostoyevsky, Stevenson, Miller, Wells, Steinbeck, Verne, Rand, Orwell, Wilde, Carroll, Golding

(I will stop here, lest the reader find listing dull)

In the cinematic, Kurtz is very hard to please. Contrary to the previously described characteristics, Kurtz will not enjoy a movie unless the plot is perfectly logical and free of clichés, and is accompanied by apt acting and believable dialogue. It is for this reason that Kurtz is not often in attendance at the theatre. In all, Kurtz most often enjoys dramas and supernatural suspense, with the most favorable, currently, being Pan's Labyrinth. The exception to the above rules is the genre of comedy, and in said genre, Hot Fuzz is king.

Kurtz, like every other author publishing copyright infringing material on this website, aspires to be an author, and hopes to one day write works both entertaining and embedded with philosophies that, in a few words, are the product of a collective, controlled sort of madness (or so Kurtz muses).

With that final thought, Kurtz has become quiet and reflective, and is partaking in the long-loved habit of nail-biting. I will take this opportunity to thank you for your patience, and invite you to read and, hopefully, enjoy.
