My self-summary
I rarely take myself seriously and don't feel the need to dominate or impose. My ego is manageably small and adequately fed, a bit like a house cat. Which is handy, 'cos I never have to get up early to let it outside for a wee.

People would probably (hopefully) describe me as "funny" or "silly" (or even "ridiculous", but we'll ignore those people. They're cretins). I have a very silly sense of humour and I can, and do, make most people laugh (intentionally or otherwise).

I'm a bit of an 'undercover hippy' / 'armchair lefty' – civil rights and the environment are two of the few things I take seriously. I also value good manners and consideration for others... and I get annoyed when people are rude or selfish. I hate confrontation and violence. "Peace, man."

I listen to a pretty wide range of music and play drums in a rock/punk/grunge band. We're not very good, but our songs are quite short.
What I’m doing with my life
Embarking on a new career as a local newspaper journalist, having recently re-trained.

Revelling in the role of 'favourite uncle'.

Jamming with my 'band'.

Enjoying the company of (and appreciating the fact that I have) a lovely bunch of very good friends.
I’m really good at
Playing drums/guitar and singing with all the talent and finesse of a fold-away occasional table.

Writing (articles, blogs, reviews). A novel is 'brewing' (ie. I have some ideas and want to write one, but currently am not).

Amateur filmmaking (ie Edgar-Wright-esque wedding videos for my mates; epic moody holiday videos with ace soundtracks; fly-on-the-wall documentaries featuring my niece and nephew falling over on beaches - that sort of thing).

Listening; making people laugh; empathising; mediating; affectionate mickey-taking; being honest at the expense of my ego; silliness.

"Treating all trivial matters seriously, and all serious matters with a sincere and studied triviality" (with apologies to Oscar Wilde).
The first things people usually notice about me
Hopefully, my razor-sharp wit and raconteurish repartee.

More realistically, the fact that I look a bit like Shaggy off Scooby Doo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by Douglas Adams, Stephen Fry or Charlie Brooker. George Orwell (although I haven't read him for years). Lord of the Rings.

Comedies like Alpha Papa, Anchorman, the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, The Big Lebowski, Dazed and Confused, High Fidelity, Monty Python, Withnail and I
Geeky stuff like Alien, Avengers, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Indiana Jones, the old Star Wars films
Other stuff like Fight Club, GoodFellas, The Usual Suspects

Stupid comedies, eg South Park, Monty Python, Alan Partridge, Green Wing, Peep Show, Fresh Meat, and anything involving Chris Morris, Charlie Brooker, Armando Iannucci, Stephen Fry...
Good science fiction like Battlestar Galactica (modern version), Doctor Who, Fringe etc.

Music: almost anything, eg Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, Psychedelic, Rock, Funk, Classic Soul, Breakbeat, Hip-Hop, Metal and Folk.

Food: Indian, Chinese, Thai, a nice big Sunday roast, barbecues, Nandos, KFC and anything involving too much chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
An oversized television
A couple of real ales waiting for me in the fridge
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My niece and nephew. Love 'em to bits.

Writing a novel: trying to decide if it should be a deep, thoughtful and epic science fiction story, or just a stupid comedy filled with puerile willy jokes. Any thoughts?

How machines are poised to take over the world and reduce us all to whimpering slaves.

Civil rights, or the lack thereof.

The difference between "having something to say" and "having to say something".

Being a Jedi Knight.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a pub; jamming; chilling with friends; at a barbecue; round a campfire in the middle of nowhere; at home with a film.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes wonder if I'm in a low-budget version of The Truman Show.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–40
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You were (inexplicably) amused by any of my gibberings.

You're fed up of pretentious, posturing, confrontational, egotistic, selfish or violent blokes.

You're easy going, a bit of a hippy and like being silly from time to time.
