Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII there. (hiiiiii Kyle, they say in the
well, im twenty something. I was raised in a booming mining town
and fled eagerly to the city to rid myself of the stink of ore. I
dig jazz, twentieth century poetry and knitting. i find myself
currently living in a fibro shotgun shack in suburbia.
I walk a lot. I like to walk and take things in, recit poems to
myself or sing old negro spirituals as i preambulate through
paddocks or along the beach. I hate politics. I love paddocks. I
love my guitar, love playing it, shit, i love the smell of the damn
thing. My family are my friends and my friends are a family. God
I am smooth, silky, and managable
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Taking a medically advised sabbatical which I am using to write and
doing stand up as often as I can. Some people collect lego and old
coke bottles and I try to make drunken idiots laugh by doing
something they can't do themselves.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
very very few things. I love to play guitar and trumpet but suck
heedlessly at both. I am an avid reader of poetry and a part time
writer. Trust you me i am a much better reader than i am a writer.
I love to cook and have a habit of feeding people whether they like
it or not. ahhhhh.....come on. ok so sell myself. I love the ocean
more than most things, and love nothing more than lazy Sundays with
the girl i (could possibly) love (should she exist), waking up,
cooking breakfast and spending time before heading to the beach and
getting burned. I am great at situation resolution and am not
afraid of snakes or spiders. I do a mean impersonation of William
Burroughs and have actually fooled Irish people with my fake irish
accent. (the trick is to say "fierce craic" and "your man" alot)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It used to be my hair. But now i guess my abrasive toe-that-line
humour that people find so damn...well, horrible, most people find
it horrible. But they laugh. Its like presenting yourself as a
dartboard for your friends. You say the mind-bendingly un-PC things
they wont and they get a jolly good giggle out of it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
oh christ...this question. ummmm. Favourite books is kinda easy. I
love Hemingway, James Joyce, Arthur Rimbaud. Baudelaire and De
Quincy, James Baldwin, Yukio Mishima, Chester Himes, Arthur Miller
(you dirty dog you). But i dig most on my beat poets and writers.
Kerouac, Ginsberg, Burroughs, Corso. That kind of thing. I love
e.e.cummings to recite. And comics...I read A LOT of comics.
I will watch any movie once, and then as many times as i want if
its good; Brick was a brilliant film, any muppets movie, although I
prefer the first one, the new one was brilliant. Lot of great
English cinema happening at the moment, films like dead man walking
and submarine, this is England. And I love Australian cinema, most
any film made in Australia. Autoluminescent: the Rowland S Howard
doco (actually I watch a fuckload of documentaries nowadays
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!) And I love Doctor Who, and I am okay with
that. I dig Harold and Maude, Network, Twin Peaks (anything Lynch)
and the work of Wes Anderson.
My music taste it pretty broad, Everything from American 1930 -
1950's blues. Jazz (the bop era, Davis, Mingus, Coltrane &
Monk) Bob Dylan and David Peel and the Holy Modal Rounders. Tom
Waits and the Stooges and Nick Cave and The bad
seeds/grinderman/the birthday party, Rowland S Howard is my hero.
The scientists, the triffids. lets just say anything from the
seventies and eighties Australian punk scene.
And Paul Kelly. Always Paul Kelly.
I could on like this for days.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
5. a good scarf
4. a copy of bringing it all back home by Bob Dylan
3. my guitar
2. Walt Whitman
1. the love of a beautiful woman or a fine cigar.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
other peoples mortality. The rising price of train tickets. Where
to go when i have worked for fifteen years straight and get long
service leave. Why people vote. The dreary nature of the post
office. The word menses. practically within a coffee house. e.e.
cummings and ezra pound having a stoush, what i would look like
with red hair. The never ending list of things i s should be
thinking about instead of what i am actually thinking about right
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On the ever lasting search for a bar, where they play the Clash and
there is a pool table, and i can smoke and drink and play pool at
the same time. Its all i ask, can it be that hard?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have terrible habits when i am asleep.
Also I sleep naked...Not at home, just at other peoples houses.
