My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Adam. The first man? Possibly, sometimes I do feel pretty old.

I'm weird, I won't lie. I like being weird. It makes life a lot more interesting. I find the world both incredibly beautiful and interesting but also frustrating. I'm not cool, bar a short period of time in 2004, I've never been cool, that's fine I've never wanted to be cool.

I studied Film and Journalism, Philosophy and Politics during 6 years of uni. I can understand quantum physics and recite whole poems off the top of my head and also know ridiculously random factoids. Like did you know there are massive rain clouds in space?

I'm an odd mix of idealistic and cynical (I wholeheartedly believe that if your not cynical your not paying close enough attention).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Growing a beard, what that's not a long term goal?

I work in fundraising management for an environmental charity. It's very rewarding and not that poorly paid. I love feeling like I've made a difference and would never want to work in a corporate environment again.

In the long term I'd like to be a writer (novels, tv, films, graphic novels I'm not fussy as long as it's creative) but will probably always have another job to pay the bills. I write reviews for a horror website on the side at the moment. Which is a fun sideline.

I also write music, sing and play guitar and have been in bands of varying quality and style since my early teens. I still write although I no longer have a band. I am toying with the idea of doing some acoustic gigs for my own entertainment rather than because I have delusions of being Jeff Buckley (although that would be nice, you know apart from the dead dad and drowning bits).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, remembering things, hugs, what the french call "espirit escalier" or the "spirit of the stairway" which means thinking of the right thing to say five minutes too late, finding the least appropriate joke to make in a given situation, sarcasm, suggesting bands you've never heard of to listen to, books you've never heard of to read and films you've never heard of to watch.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably how tall I am, then I would imagine it'd be my curly hair. Now that I'm wearing glasses again the most common comment seems to be "You look like Superman" which is of course wrong, if anything I would look like Clark Kent, not that I think I do but lets be accurate.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Philosophy/Politics/Economics particularly Chomsky, John Gray, David Hume, Naomi Klein and Schopenhauer sci-fi Love in the Time of Cholera The Watchmen Chuck Palahniuk Phillip K Dick classics poetry particularly EE Cummings, Charles Bukowski and John Keats Nick Hornby Kazuo Ishiguro Koushun Takami i also read a lot of graphic novels or comic books to most people. I love Alan Moore particularly V for Vendetta, as well as Scott Pilgrim.

Films, i studied Film so obviously there are loads more but honorable mentions: One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest Breathless/ a Bout de Souffle Rashamon and all other Akira Kurosawa films Battle Royale all Christopher Nolan Films Donnie Darko Garden State Lost in Translation Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist The Omen Evil Dead Grosse Point Blank High Fidelity Ferris Bueller's Day Off Bill and Ted Shaun of the Dead Get Carter Brotherhood (korean) Enter the Dragon Pulp fiction and Quentin Tarantino in general all David Fincher Films Pineapple Express The Sure Thing Before Sunrise/Sunset Manhattan 500 Days of Summer Festen Scott Pilgrim Vs The World Kiss Me Deadly The Seventh Seal Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind Taken Upstream Colour Primer Gasland The Corporation Park Chan Wook's films The Raid

TV Shows: How I Met Your Mother Friends Scrubs Wonders of the Universe Family Guy Arrested Development IT Cowd The Walking Dead Spaced Chuck the Thick of it The Big Bang Theory House Black Books Spaced Sherlock Freaks and Geeks Community

Music, I like a bit of everything but tend more towards the "alternative" and rock/singer songwriter end of things, I think music should aspire to make you feel something somewhere other than just in your crotch (I'm looking at you Miley Cyrus): Propaghandi Glassjaw At the Drive-In Black Flag Led Zeppelin The Clash Al Green Marvin Gaye Ray Lamontange Gavin DeGraw Pearl Jam Ben Harper Jeff Buckley Brand New Leonard Cohen The Descendents Colin Hay The Black Keys We Are Scientists Jimi Hendrix Bon Iver The Get Up Kids Rival Schools The black Crowes The Kinks Sonic Youth The Pixies Fugazi Hot Water Music Neutral Milk Hotel Sonic Youth Say Anything Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros MxPx Daniel Johnson Face to Face Deaf Havana Million Dead (way better than Frank Turner on his own) Hell is for Heroes The Future of the Left

I love food and cooking mostly italian, thai, chinese and indian. I also enjoy anything sweet and ideally brightly coloured and have recently discovered that Dime Bar Milkshakes might be the greatest invention in human history.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A guitar, music, films, books, love and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, as I mentioned I studied philosophy so I'm pretty much always thinking about something, mostly deep intellectual things but sometimes it's just about ewoks ( I mean do they have ewok schools and hospitals up in those trees?). I have a constant inner monologue (it's a bit like an episode of Scrubs only less zany and far more damaging to my self esteem)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with friends or at home playing music or writing or watching films.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like the same things as me, just want to know more about me or how to fix your computer.
