My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Likes: dressing up, whisky, adventures, waving my hands enthusiastically when I talk, planning more tattoos, dressing a bit like Christian Slater circa 1993, staying up late, exploring abandoned bits of cities, dying my hair apparently (right now it's sort of a metallic grey, like a robot David Lynch), rooftops, old man pubs with 1970s decor, pointing at art while shaking my head, going new places, doing new things and feeding the ducks.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Next month, an exhibition I curated opens at the V&A, which is equal parts exciting and terrifying. It also means that after a year I'm about to get my social life back, which will be nice. For money, I'm an academic type, so I spend most of my days sitting behind a pile of dusty books written by dead old men with impressive facial hair.

When I'm not doing that, I like to shout and play a banjo or a synthesiser, which sometimes involves spending my days standing around in an airless room with other young men who like shouting and playing musical instruments, some of whom also have impressive facial hair. Sometimes I also get involved in some troublemaking and political art projects, but that all seems a bit po-faced and serious to talk about here. Although 'political art project' is a pretty fancy phrase for 'shutting down a power station while dressed as a pirate'. I suppose politics are pretty important to me, but I grew out of being ranty about it when I was a teenager so I won't go quoting Emma Goldman at you. Probably.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making cocktails; over-enthusiastic dancing; the first edition of streetfighter 2; exchanging tales of daring misadventure; meandering conversational tangents.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That one of my pupils is bigger than the other. I'm like a Tesco value David Bowie. I've also been told I have the mannerisms of a dog. That means I'm friendly and effusive, rather than that my tongue hangs out to help me cool down and that I'll casually wee on a chair leg. I promise not to do that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My two favourite films are Wild Zero and La Commune. One is a six-hour avant-garde black and white film about communism, and the other one is about a Japanese rock and roll band who save the world from zombies with guitars that shoot lazers. My third favourite film is either True Romance or the Doom Generation.

I'm vegetarian, and used to be vegan. I consider myself a connoisseur of the fake meat products of the world.

I read all day for work, so I've kind of fallen out of the habit of reading novels for fun (suggestions welcome!). But my favourite novel is Q by Luther Blissett, closely followed by some Octave Mirbeau. My favourite poet is Raoul Vaneigem.

I like music that's quite noisy, whether that's shouty guitars or buzzing noises made by machines with blinky lights. My computer says recently I'm listening a lot to Blackbird Raum, RVIVR, Actress, Teeth of the Sea, Tom Waits, You Love Her Cos She's Dead, Eagulls and Christoph de Babalon.

This panel is not inviting me to list my favourite videogames, but that's probably for the best. I did once build my own 4-player MAME arcade cabinet, but I sort of lost it. And I've somehow managed to turn my electronic compulsions into being mildly healthy by getting addicted to 'Zombies, Run!' Now I'm one of those awful people who goes running and goes to the gym and stuff, but it's boring to talk about it and I am really only doing it because I'm pretending to be chased by the undead. I am a grown up.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
tea, friendly dogs, loud noises, critical theory, the interior design of the late nineteenth century, adventures.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where did I put tha...? oh, it's in my hand.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Last Friday I invented a new cocktail using only things I found in the house. I call it the 'muddy brownwater.'
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm too shy to wear my glasses in public. I wear contact lenses pretty much all the time, but if you're the type of person who thinks glasses are hot, my black-rimmed coke bottles will either disabuse you of that unfortunate illusion or form the basis of some kind of new paraphilia for cartoon nerds with massive blinky eyes.

Also, I cried at the end of Robocop.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...I have not yet managed to dissuade you from doing so. I kind of like how the internet can make you meet people you never would think to hang out with otherwise, and then they turn out to be quite nice.

...You have a dog I can pet.

...You can teach me a new dance. This does include dances which you just made up, but it helps if they have a good name, like 'the wily mincer' or 'the reverse dervish.'

...You like DIY punk rock or noisy electronic music and need a gig buddy.

I'm in an open relationship, but I'm not super-intense or serious enough to call it polyamory. GGG and kink-friendly, so you know, massive perverts welcome. I'm not looking for either cold random hookups or lifelong romantic entanglement, so much as dating and flirting with a new friend who is equal parts smart and ridiculous and likes to talk nonsense, drink whisky and get into trouble. It will probably help if you like adventures and are a bit inappropriate.

So, er... yeah. Smart new friends are as welcome as filthy-minded debauched adventurers. Smart new friends who are secretly also filthy-minded debauched adventures, please go straight to the front of the queue, where that slightly dandyish man waving his hands enthusiastically will stamp your ticket.
