My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Bad, bad, bad rubber piggy.

December 2014 is a good time for the first profile update in seven years. Also possibly a little redundant. I'm here to stay in touch with some old friends, but if you have something interesting to say don't be put off. New friends are always welcome.

I'm a father-of-one. A creative and literary events badass. An artist and occasional illustrator of children's novels.

That kinda sums me up. Along with the baggage that usually comes attached to these phenomena, etc., etc.

I'm also a musician, but, being honest, I'm not exactly Karlheinz f***ing Stockhausen.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Raising a baby boy, managing events, meeting people, selling books, publishing books, painting pictures.

Y'know. Stuff.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Drinking wine. Particularly a carmenere.

Painting pictures. Or so I'm told. I'm not sure.

Singing the classics of Soviet opera in a firm, full-bodied baritone.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I were to confess a relevant character flaw it would be arrogance or belligerence, not narcissism.

Or, more simply put: Don't know, don't care. Ask them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I practically live in one of the largest bookshops in England. Let's not do this. We could be here all day.

Arthouse shit, bad sci-fi, cheesy action flicks, manga, Rodriguez, Tarantino, zombie flicks,

I have a small child. It's Cbeebies or gtfo. As it were.

I love almost all forms of music, the list I hate is much shorter, and I hate the following so f***ing much.
Anything from X-factor and rip-offs. Abba, Ace of Base, Billy Ray Cyrus, Bon Jovi, Cliff Richard, Conway Twitty, Happy Mondays, Jack Johnson, James Blunt, La Roux, Linkin Park, Shania Twain, Simply Red, Wagner, and many, many more.

I'm a fickle vegetarian. Don't try to cook for me, just make the damn coffee.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm assuming that we've taken care of the lower portion of Maslow's hierarchy of needs, right?

Also shouldn't need to add the boy to this list. Goes without saying. Point of breathing, and all that.

In which case. Wine, books, studio, coffee, pen, guitar.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sammiches. Bullshit thought experiments. Left-wing politics. Soviet history.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Putting the boy to bed. In the studio. Running a literary event. All kindsa stuff, really. Mostly within the remit of what you've already read.

What did you expect me to say? "Same thing we do every night, Pinky...." or "Dismantling a beached oil tanker on the Somalian coast"

Wasn't likely, was it?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
All of my prejudice towards other humans, is concentrated in one arena: if you don't read books on a regular basis, I will view you as sub-human. I will think on you, from the moment we meet, as potential cannon-fodder and wholeheartedly believe that it should be legal to kick you.

I know. I'm sorry. I'm working on it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have nothing specific to say.
