My self-summary
Existential optimist night owl nerdish wanderer of literature and cinema. Devourer of tea, or coffee when I'm on the go. Liker of animals (especially furry ones) and disliker of cars. Lover of long walks, good eats and conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
I volunteer two days a week at a local library and two at a local charity shop. I have a postgrad diploma in Information and Library Management but that doesn't really help as much as actual experience so I'm trying to build mine up. The charity shop gets me slightly different but still useful experience, and a different set of contacts. Plus it's just plain fun. Otherwise I spend a lot of time looking for/applying for jobs in the library sector as they're something of a passion of mine.

For hobbies I spend most of my free time reading (currently Dennis Wheatley's The Irish Witch and the first volume of Hellblazer) but also trying to work up the energy to try Gravity's Rainbow again), watching films (at the moment revisiting the worst of my outsized DVD collection before giving them away) or listening to music, or finding new writers, films and bands to investigate. I'm also haltingly attempting to write a science fiction/fantasy/mystery novel. Before I ever wanted to be anything else I wanted to be a writer, it may not go anywhere but I think as dreams go it isn't a bad one to pursue.
I’m really good at
Books. Categorising them, sorting them, thinking about them reading them, writing about them and talking about them. Much the same applies to cinema. Okay, so neither of these things are more than hobbies but as hobbies go I've pursued them enough to consider myself pretty knowledgeable. And I'm getting pretty sharp on the weirder byways of the internet and all the human interest they have to offer (I love a good epic and rambling conspiracy theory). Basically good at getting interested in random stuff and pursuing it fiendishly. This has a fringe benefit of making other people feel a whole lot better about themselves. It's cool, because I like few things more than making other people feel better about themselves.
The first things people usually notice about me
Smart, twitchy, dark haired and skinny, wrapped up warm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Top books in a rough order: Last Exit to Brooklyn (Hubert Selby Jr), V. (Thomas Pynchon), Naked Lunch (William Burroughs), The Crow Road (Iain Banks), Tiger, Tiger (Alfred Bester), The Outsider (Albert Camus), Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte)

Also a generally big fan of vintage pulp horror and science fiction (later fare a little less so), particularly in the short to novella form.

Top films in some order: Miller's Crossing, Casablanca, Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill!, North by Northwest, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Lady Snowblood, The Green Ray, Dr. Strangelove, Female Prisoner Scorpion #701, Hiroshima Mon Amour, Blind Beast, 2001, Go Go Second Time Virgin, Citizen Kane, Liquid Sky

And likewise a big fan of horror, science fiction and general weird cinema. Especially from the 60's through 80's and more obscure the better, like I get super excited at seeing fan subtitled Polish or Yugoslavian or suchlike horror movies that are almost unknown.

Assorted favourite bands/artists: Sonic Youth, Pixies, PJ Harvey, Sleater-Kinney, The Breeders, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Kyuss, Neurosis, Come, Thalia Zedek, Throwing Muses, The Geraldine Fibbbers, Swans, Massive Attack, Carcass, Mastodon, Emperor, Darkthrone, Kyuss, Blut Aus Nord, Napalm Death, Mogwai, Massive Attack, Portishead, YOB, Striborg, Sigh, Maudlin of the Well, SPK, Deathspell Omega, The Atlas Moth, Belly.

Will give anything a fair listen though.

Not a big TV watcher because it requires a little more time commitment and focus than I usually like, but some faves are The Simpsons, American Dad, Frasier, Spaced, Black Books, Yes Minister, Yes, Prime Minister, Parks and Recreation, The Bridge, The X Files, American Gothic etc.

Food: Mostly anything but especially Asian food. And seafood. Mmmm, delicious delicious squid. I'm perfectly happy with a few slices of toast, or cereal or tea and choccy biccies though.
The six things I could never do without
Art, animals, tea and chocolate biscuits, warm clothes and the wonders of the mind.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The pursuit of Truth and Beauty. And goblins.
On a typical Friday night I am
Curled up in bed listening to music, reading ghost stories by lamplight, watching TV or movies or otherwise just fighting the clock.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Had spells of anxiety, depression and insomnia in the past, they're rarer now but I still have occasional bad patches.

Also I can't ride a bike. Think that's all the bad stuff up front. I believe in being honest about this sort of thing from the outset because it's bound to come out given time.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–30
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If none of the above puts you off or if some of it even interests you, if you want to recommend me new things, show me new sights, take me to different worlds, if you're kind or smart and looking for some good conversation. If you're anything or everything, anyone or everyone, or if you're just plain bored and looking to shoot the breeze for a few idle moments.

Also if you really like tea or coffee and want to meet up for tea or coffee.
