To answer the question though, I was recently playing in a band in Manchester and now thats over Im looking for new adventures so trying to decide where to move to next
I can talk to you for hours about things you probably have little or no interest in :)
I can also make the perfect cup of tea
Also whenever I met any other English people while traveling they had a hard time believing Im really from Manchester, apparently I don't have the "right" accent for it
My other favourite artists are Paul McCartney, XTC, ELO, The Smiths, Todd Rundgren, Sondre Lerche, The High Llamas, Brian Eno.
After the Beatles the main music I listen to really is film soundtracks, especially those of the composers ennio morricone, balladenti and Gabriel Yared.
I wouldn't say I was a good musician...but I make up for it in effort, I also write songs constantly but Im not sure if any of them are actually any good - Ive played in bands for the past ten years though but Im too scared at the moment to play on my own - tried one open mic and it went badly, haven't had the courage to do another yet. I really should given all the time I've taken to learn every bloody Beatles song there is..!
I love foreign cinema, especially German films. My favourite film is probably The Tin Drum but I also love the German tv show Heimat. I love comedy so The Monty Python films are up there, and Charlie Chaplin films. Beatles films also, obviously.
I do love comedy shows like Peep Show, Flight of the Conchords, Red Dwarf etc and epic dramas like Our Friends In The North or The Killing. Currently watching Borgen. I think the documentaries of Adam Curtis are amazing and very eye opening, everyone should watch them! When I was a child my favourite cartoon was The Raccoons, I was really surprised when I actually went to America to find they don't like Raccoons and no one had seen the cartoon...turns out its Canadian! And what exactly was Ceril Sneer??
My favourite book of all time is Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. Im quite convinced this is the greatest book ever written, I tend to read it like once a year. My fav author however is Kurt Vonnegut, although I think they have a similar style. Anything by Murakami, Bill Bryson and Henning Mankell I usually love too
I also love Richard Dawkins, yes I know he pisses a lot of people off but good - if you read The God Delusion you realize he is God, the final irony. Clearly I'm not a fan of religion, religious maniacs need not message me I don't have the time or energy to point out why you are so deluded. Sorry. Believers in the Flying Spaghetti Monster are more than welcome though
I should really think about another visit over there sometime
Also my hair kept going weird colours in the sun so I thought I'd dye it brown...maybe left the dye in too long and now sort of accidentally look like a bit of a goth...

But anyway right now I'm traveling round so I guess anyone who wants to befriend a foreigner? Perhaps show me around your city? Or just hang out have a nice cup of tea...!
