My name's Ben, and my Labradors thinks I'm shit hot. I drink whiskey like a dead set wanker. Spends too much time on Reddit. Reads, watches and listens to anything that will keep me up at night and make me late for work the next day. A fan of a bit of what's going on in the world, soccer, history, and anything that I can Wikipedia for hours.
I can be found watching Audrey Hepburn/Tautou movies, eating sausage rolls and reading comics. Can be heard quoting countless Will Ferrell movies and Scott Pilgrim references, even when they're completely uncalled for. Have a huge crush on that Jewish girl from Community.
I also want Dylan Moran in and around me.
What I’m doing with my life
Just moved back to Adelaide after a very nuts 18 month stint in
Melbourne. I work for myself now, and I really truly love it.
Currently re-reading all my high school books and jerking off over
Christopher Nolan films. I sometimes watch old movies for the sole
purpose to hear the Wilhelm scream.
I also try to convince expecting parents that they should name
their kids either Mufasa or Optimus Prime. No one thus far has
taken my flawless advice.
I wish it was socially acceptable to still play with Lego.
I’m really good at
I would be freaking great in a zombie apocalypse, as long as they
were slow zombies, and not the super fast fuckers from 28 Weeks
Later. I would be terrible in a regular apocalypse.
Oh, and buying people coffee. I've been told that's one of my top
three qualities. By my mum.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is that I'm a solid 4/10.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jimi Hendrix, Tame Impala, anything by Jack White, and of course The (obligatory) Beatles.
TV currently consists of a healthy diet of Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Community, Louie, Game of Thrones, some docos to throw in for good measure, and Black Books. That last one gives me all sorts of funnies.
George Orwell shit and The Alchemist are my favourite books.
The six things I could never do without
1. A cozy pub
2. My bed. It's amazing
3. Lots of wine (McLaren Vale lad here)
4. People that make me laugh
5. Driving to the folks' every Sunday at 3am to watch the soccer.
6. Maltesers. Seriously, it's like meth to me
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All the martial arts moves I would use to diffuse a hostage situation. Every male thinks about these scenarios constantly.
On a typical Friday night I am
Making cheese toasties my business.
Also the same thing everyone else says: beer, movies, perhaps a
video game or two, friends, saving orphans from burning buildings,
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am easily the most ticklish person you will ever meet in the
entire world. Elmo ain't got shit on me.
You should message me if
- You think you can beat me in Mario Kart.
- You're cool with the fact that I have a heterosexual crush on
every James Bond and their suits.
- You're cool with the fact that I go travelling whenever it suits
