Travel: I want to visit many places in the world before I die. Ideally Japan and New Zealand (to see Hobbit town obviously). Natural wonders fascinate me. I do love Amsterdam though I always wanted to visit Bohemia. I am traveling to Norway this summer.
Personality: According to the MBTI personality test I am an INTJ. While I do have a serious side which considers the deeper mysteries, I personally prefer not to take life too seriously - It's not like you're going to get out alive!
Dream: My life dream is to become a published comic book artist. Even though I have some way to go and I know it's not an easy path, I enjoy the process immensely and I've always had an interest in writing stories and drawing. Can be tricky to balance when you work monday to fridays but I try squeeze in as much drawing time as possible.
I have been told that I have a good eye for art (debatable). I'm fairly good at thinking but I'm still working on the "doing" part. I'm not lazy, I just prefer to conserve energy.
Anime / Manga: Berserk, Gantz, Vinland Saga, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Paprika, Shamo, Paranoia Agent, Cat Soup, Redline, Aachi & Ssipak, Akira, Kingdom, Historie, Wolfmund. Eden of the East, Dorohedero. Genius party. I love experimental OVA's/movies from Studio 4c, Madhouse, IG Productions. The zanier the better.
I listen to mainly music with an electronic influence (Aphex Twin, Luke Vibert/Wagon Christ, Prodigy, Amon Tobin, Autechre) and rock / metal with some prog thrown in (think Pink Floyd, Opeth, The Doors).
Some movies I've seen: Fight Club, Oldboy, A Clockwork Orange, Sympathy for Lady vengeance, Brotherhood of War, The Holy Mountain, Eraserhead, LOTR / The Hobbit, Labyrinth, Dark Crystal, Natural Born Killers, American Psycho, Spirited Away, Tank Girl, Pan's Labyrinth, Hook... i watched films every night when I was at university.
Sadly, I seldom find time to 'read' these days. It's not that I don't enjoy reading, I just mainly read visual media such as manga and comics instead. I do try to keep myself up to date with the latest science / tech news and I'm subscribed to a few history magazines. I have a soft spot for steampunk and literature on mythology.
I'm quite into medieval history. I do Historical European Martial Arts and enjoy learning techniques for using swords, spears, daggers, staffs etc. I'm not a psycho I promise I just find it interesting.
For food... I quite like Mexican and South American style dishes. A good cheesy pizza is my kryptonite.
