Hello. I'm originally from Birmingham (but don't have much of a
brummie accent) and have been living in Manchester for ages
I thought i'd sign up to this in the hope of meeting interesting
people i have a bit in common with.
What I’m doing with my life
As much as I'd like my band to be famous and adored by everyone, I
have reluctantly had so accept that I need a backup career plan. So
I went back to university and I'm a part-time student (for just a
little bit longer - I've nearly finished now), and I work full-time
I’m really good at
I guess I'm good at being in an unprofitable geek-rock band. I
think we're pretty awesome, but if I didn't think that there would
be no point doing it. I do the lead vocals and the majority of the
songwriting. I can play a few instruments too. Not drums though.
They're really difficult.
I spend a lot of my spare time playing tennis. I'm pretty good by
club standards, but pretty terrible compared with Federer.
I like games a lot, and have got very good at my favourites, which
include: Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, Smallworld, Dominion,
Quarriors, Subbuteo, Space Marine, Game of Thrones (the board
game), Chess, Connect 4, and some retro computer games.
I have been known to be a good listener when i make the effort and
am not doing anything else at the same time. I cannot multi-task at
all. I'm apparently good fun to be around on nights out too.
The first things people usually notice about me
.....is that i have three heads.
Or something else. I've never met myself for the first time.

I'm not terribly fussy really. Not broccoli though. I've seen what
it can do to you on Garth Marenghi's Darkplace.
The six things I could never do without
Excluding the likes of "air, water, food, etc", My cat, good music,
friends, games, tennis and Aston Villa.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
people, and trying to make sense of them.
On a typical Friday night I am
I have a theory that all the best nights out start with Friday
Night Magic. Afterwards, a good party or anywhere playing good
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You have to get to know me before i admit anything private.
You should message me if
You think we would get on well and/or fancy me lots,
or, you like similar music and want someone to go to gigs with or
to play in my band,
or, you like lots of the same games and want a worthy opponent.
