Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"I thoroughly recommend this and all Saab products."
I was an English Literature student in undergrad - finishing a Law
Masters at the moment - and I don't think anything's better than
arguing the toss with people who have flair and humour. I'm really
into history, politics, music, and learning the meaning of a new
word (the last one I learned was "Bumptious" - if you say
bumptious, you often sound quite bumptious).
I'm also crazy about the guitar - I could sit and practice for
hours. My idea of heaven is one of those DVDs about improving
technique. I play in an electric blues band and it's my favourite
thing in the world to do!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Researching international law queries by day; electric blues by
night. There seems to be a lot of coffee in there too.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I suppose the things that I'd be miserable if I wasn't allowed to
do are play music and write. I suppose I'm into history and
international affairs to an extent a lot of people would find
boring. People say I have a good vocabulary?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: Anything historical. At the moment, I'm reading a biography
of Vasily Grossman, the Soviet war correspondent.
Not a big movie-goer, but I love some classics; Casablanca, Dawn of
the Dead, Do The Right Thing. I'm a Spike Lee fan.
As for music, I have a huge love for anything blues-related;
anything from my guitar heroes (Clapton, Hendrix and so on) to
Percy Sledge, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, Ry Cooder, and the
Beatles - especially the Abbey Road album - gorgeous. Just now, I'm
listening to a lot of Larry Carlton and an old favourite album,
Dylan's Blood on the Tracks.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A grip on current affairs (I start to go nuts), a guitar, something
to read, my friends, my belooved Skoda Fabia, and more coffee than
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics. What's worse, right-wing dogma or left-wing social
engineering? Conservative arrogance or liberal self-loathing? Rosy,
mythical versions of the past, or naive ideological utopias?
Unshakeable moral absolutes, or mushy-headed relativism? I wish I
was as certain as some people seem to be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out somewhere playing music in front of people - sometimes for
money, which is preferable. But either way, it's more fun than DVD
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You can't tell anyone this, but I have a portrait in my attic that
ages while I stay eternally youthful.
