My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Check out my QUESTIONS (with explained answers) section, as i often write quite detailed answers and it will tell you much more about me than anything i have to randomly spew out in a summary.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

My pictures never really reflect how much i laugh or smile (which is constantly). I very rarely take pictures of myself and i'm never really satisfied with the ones i do take. Also, i have a thing for sunglasses, as some of my pictures will show, but i'm absolutely NOT a "poser" of any kind. I quite dislike those types of pictures (and people). I people-watch a lot (curiosity, imagining their backstory) and wearing sunglasses are a nice way of doing it without rudely staring people down (something else i quite dislike).

Outside of that, i'm a Scorpio, born in the last week of October. I'm a typical Scorpio: Extremely passionate, strong-willed and calm / composed. Those three traits best describe the kind of person i am.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a drum & bass DJ & producer, mostly in London but also Bristol & Oxford (once in a while). The production side is still pretty much a hobby as i chose to be completely self-taught. The DJ side i've been doing off & on since the late 90's and it's served me quite well thus far. I also work for an independent record label part-time, so all in all, i get paid simply for doing the thing(s) i love most and would be doing with my time anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The things that are said most often are my smile, my eyes and how intense my stare can be (don't worry, not in a creepy way), the depth of my voice (i can always hear serious weight and bass under my words, even when i'm talking as quietly as possible) and the fullness of my lips, although i feel like they take up around 85% of my face.

Most people tell me, months after having first met me, that they couldn't figure out my parentage / nationality. Some have said black, light skinned / mixed race, English / British.... A few people have even said MEXICAN, which makes me laugh every time, but i imagine that's simply because i usually have a shaved head, goatee beard and natural tan.

The truth is even more confusing: I'm half Irish and half Jamaican, speak "proper" English most of the time (some of my friends often criticise me for using "big, complicated words" they don't understand) and can seamlessly downshift into early 90's street slang mixed with Jamaican patois when i'm around North Londoners. Yes yes, easy now bredrin, big respect an' ting, seen.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
High Fidelity by Nick Hornby is the greatest book in the history of mankind.

Music was absolutely my first love and i'm quite a nerd about it at times, as i tend to remember everything about a particular song, album or producer / artist. Drum & Bass is my main focus at the moment, but i love music as a whole. A lot of people say they're eclectic, "anything really" or "i have a very broad taste" when it comes to music they like and never actually seem to mean it. In my case, broad is the absolute truth.......

The Prodigy, New Order, Chic, Jamiroquai, A Tribe Called Quest, Fatboy Slim, Faithless, Texas, The Prodigy, Air, The Cure, Moby, Happy Mondays, Suede, David Holmes, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Garbage, The Chemical Brothers, Disclosure, The Prodigy, Zero 7, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Basement Jaxx, Gangstarr / Guru, Groove Armada, Freestylers, Jimi Hendrix, The Prodigy, Leftfield, Simple Minds, Orbital, KT Tunstall, Rakim, Nine Inch Nails / Trent Reznor, The Charlatans, The Prodigy, LL Cool J, Depeche Mode, Sub Focus, The Sisters Of Mercy, Bonobo, The Smiths, THE PRODIGY....... I could literally keep writing forever.

The only types i don't really like are Country & Happy Hardcore. There are 29,231 songs in my iTunes library at the time of writing, nuff said.

One more thing... The Prodigy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...How it's possible that Leonardo Dicaprio has been nominated for four oscars and STILL not won, but Nicholas Cage has.

(That wasn't meant to be a complete insult towards Nicholas Cage. I actually find him extremely entertaining. But his name and the phrase "Academy Award Winner" do not belong in the same sentence)

...If OkCupid removed all the profiles of women who are drinking (or posing with) alcohol in at least one of their photos, how many female profiles would be left on here?

This is how i imagine they think it looks: www.tcdailyplanet.net/sites/tcdailyplanet.net/files/imagecache/NewArticlePic/13/10/great_gatsby.jpg

And this is how it actually looks:
http://media1.s-nbcnews.com/j/streams/2013/June/130617/6C7914732-130617-dicaprio-lakers.blocks_desktop_medium.jpg

...The irony / hypocrisy of someone trying to undermine your interest in music & film by saying "There's NOTHING as good as reading a book!", when all the "books" they own are digital files on a Kindle.

...Why men have started showing up in my matches list.

...How the OkCupid matching algorithm works. I could visit the profile of someone that was a 90% match and they'll appear to be pretty much perfect for me. Then i'll visit a 97% match profile and they will be the exact definition of everything i despise about human beings.

...Whether anyone in real life has ever said "bonehead" or "dirtbag" as a serious insult, and if so, whether it's possible that the other person was even remotely offended by it.

...Why girls think it's sexy to take pictures of themselves standing next to a toilet bowl, sink or bathtub. If the first picture i ever see of a girl shows them standing next to a toilet, that will be the one thing i always associate them with.

...Why when i show someone an internet page on my laptop and they want to draw my attention to a specific part of it, is it really necessary for them to actually press their finger onto / against the screen?

...How the people who say "Totes", "Amazeballs", "Well Jel" and "Hashtag ........" in actual verbal conversation, and without a hint of sarcasm, manage to breathe successfully and not fall down more often.

...Why i ever think about largely unimportant things like the previous nine points.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Everytime i read this section, everyone puts "If i wrote that, then it wouldn't be private, would it? Duhhhhhhhhhhh!". So, to offset the sheer weight of predictable & identical comments usually found here, i will tell you three (sort of) private things:

1) I despise football (most other sports are incredibly boring too, unless there's a comedic value to be found within it), cars / car maintenance, infidelity / cheaters, discussing the body type and / or sexual ability of my current partner in great detail to a room full of my male friends... and everything else cliche & horribly stereotypical about being a man.

Apart from action movies. Me like explosions.

2) I own more mid-90's eurodance tracks than any self-respecting music lover ever should, including the complete discographies of both Cappella & 2 Unlimited. Don't judge me.

3) I've never sent a message to anyone on this site in the year and a half i've been on it (replies don't count, obviously). Seen many nice profiles but none of them have pushed me to that point where i say "I HAVE to message her!".

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE: Today (16/09/14), i randomly stumbled across the profile of a girl that i wanted to message the second i finished reading her long brilliant profile and her answers section that was almost identical to mine. 99% match. Clicked on "Send Message"...

"She's reached her Message limit. She can't get messages until she deletes some"

Gutted. And it's not about paying a fee to send someone a message.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You're open, honest, happy, passionate, loving and want the same qualities from your partner.

- You know how to express yourself maturely in a debate / discussion without resorting to screaming, storming off in a tantrum or jumping on a soapbox every time you hear something you disagree with.

- You love George Carlin's stand-up, pre-1990 Eddie Murphy, John Carpenter films, The IT Crowd, Community, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, The World's End, Spaced, Shaun Of The Dead or the various works of Tarantino, with no exceptions.

- You're a grammar / spelling Nazi and make no apologies for it (people with dyslexia are exempt, obviously. I'm not a complete bastard)

- You properly title all of your MP3 files (the original file AND the ID3 tags). Extra points if the thought of an MP3 without an appropriate artwork file is totally unacceptable to you. If you consistently do both of these things, i'll marry you tomorrow... regardless of anything else. Seriously, you could look like the dude who gets doused in toxic waste at the end of Robocop and you'll still have a shot with me.

- You saw the text at the top of the Matches section, which states "A-List members can search by attractiveness and body type", and thought "That's a bit pathetic".

- You're a massive fan of drum & bass. I could pretty much overlook anything else as long as you love DnB as much as i do.

- You're a sapiosexual (like me).

- You're one of the few people left in the universe who can easily identify sarcasm in text.

- You don't take 100 selfies a day. Especially when you have absolutely nothing to document, like riding on a bus home or walking to the shops. Also, if you raise your camera above your head every time you take a picture, we can't be friends or lovers.

- You don't do this stupid and ridiculously unnatural "hands on hips" pose in pictures: http://hiphop-n-more.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/ak-girl-on-fire.png

- Actually, if you don't do any of those stupid blatantly-staged poses in pictures like every other girl does. The Chicken Wing, the sideways / over the shoulder...... Pictures are supposed to be a snapshot of the moment. If you intentionally get yourself into a pose or stance long before a picture is taken, then what's the point of the picture? It suggests a high level of falseness & vanity, both of which immediately puts me off a girl.

...Or, because you want to. I will be very impressed if you take that first step, as most women on here seem to enjoy hiding behind outdated gender stigmas / traditions.

Please don't rate my profile, as i cannot see who you are to reciprocate or contact you. Just send me a message instead! :-D
