My self-summary
I'm a dry humoured, cheese loving, bearded fan of guitar-y type music. I want a pet wombat. I've written everything else below, if I filled this section up then the rest would be really bastard boring. I'd go as far as to say I'd end up repeating myself.
What I’m doing with my life
I co-own a record shop and a vinyl only record label. Both are based in Newport. I am not, that would be lunacy.
I’m really good at
Wasting a lot of time doing stuff that other people wouldn't bother with. If you want a compilation CD then you will damn well wait for me to finish all of the artwork. I'm also good at making pepper sauce, taking on too many things at once, being brilliantly enthusiastic about said things, taking photos without a flash, playing with cats, reviewing band members t-shirts/stickers, frying stuff, mumbling and drinking coffee. I've recently started writing short stories and making cheesecake.
The first things people usually notice about me
No idea, they never tell me. Depends on conditions I guess. Update: someone said they spoke to me because of the mischievous glint in my eye. I liked that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Food: I like cooking. Usually more meat than veg but I'm getting better. I good at homemade burgers, pies, sausage and chorizo casserole and making stuff up. Recently started putting random stuff in mash. It's fun.

Movies & TV: I'm not a huge obsessive of either but I've enjoyed Seven Psychopaths, 20,000 Days On Earth, Empire Records, Grosse Pointe Blank, The Guard, anything that will make me sit still for its duration. I'm awful at committing to series but I did like True Detective.
The six things I could never do without
iPod, thumbs, coffee, cheese, chips, hats.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Song lyrics involving whiskey and the word darlin'. How terrifying zombie cows would be.
On a typical Friday night I am
On the sofa watching shit TV as I'm likely to be in work the following day. On a typical Saturday night I'm out in Cardiff with my mates, quite possible being slightly too drunk. This is a default setting. It can be altered with practice.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My porn name is Pussy Bowen.
You should message me if
You want to get to know me better. Or if you're bored. Or if you need to know what Soul Asylum's first album for A&M was.
