Bookish, musical, hopefully quite funny guy from England, living in Tokyo. よろしく, ね!
There are not so many OKstupid users in Japan so I don't use this so often, but feel free to message me.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in syllabus development (making textbooks) for a major language company. I also teach guitar lessons. 3000 Yen or free if you're cute.
I’m really good at
Cooking Thai green curry, giving massages, and slipping unnecessarily obscure words into a conversation.
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends if I'm at the onsen or not
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Really passionate about music: alternative rock, electronic, punk, post-punk, jazz, hip hop, trip hop, ambient, folk, classical, world.. basically anything organic. I did once have a huge list of artists here, but let's just say lots.
Books: Philosophy, sociology, politics, history, anthropology, travel literature, and some fiction. I love JG Ballard, George Orwell, Mishima Yukio, and Haruki Murakami.
Films: Too long to list, but The Graduate and Lost in Translation are two of personal significance.
The six things I could never do without
Tea, wine, Asian cuisine, my guitar, a good book, the internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Love, sex, philosophy, food.
On a typical Friday night I am
somewhere on the Yamanote line between Ikebukuro and Ebisu. Typically.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me anything. どうぞ!
You should message me if
.. you're interested.
I'm looking for good friends or a good relationship.
