My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
History nerd, working in advertising and moonlighting as a blues musician (they call it moonlighting because you miss sleep a lot). I don't think anything's better than arguing the toss with people who have flair and humour. I'm really into 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.
Fretting over CTR and CPA, trying to influence consumers 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
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything historical. My favourites would include Avi Shlaim on the Middle East, John Lews Gaddis on the Cold War, and anything Andrew Marr touches. At the moment, I'm reading Christopher Andrew's history of the MI5. Uncovering communist subversion in 1930s London - what a read.

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 , whose greatest achievement was CLEARLY the Abbey Road album. At the moment I'm into Steely Dan and George Harrison a lot.
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 is healthy.
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.
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.
