What I’m doing with my life
I'm doing a PhD, some tutoring and a bit of panicking.
The first things people usually notice about me
The suit, but they know I'm rock and roll through and through.
Maybe also my general aura, I tend to give off a "let's chill out
and get to know each other" kind of vibe.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
George Orwell, Arthur Koestler, Albert Camus, Churchill (for his writing, not his politics or beliefs, I'm not a racist I promise!), Kafka, a bit of Irvine Welsh, Dostoyevsky and The Complete Adventures of Curious George. I also bloody love All Quiet on the Western Front, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, To Kill a Mockingbird, Catch-22, Empire of the Sun, Hangover Square, Sorrow of War and just loads of bloody others.
In terms of shows I love The Wire, The Sopranos, The Office, Brass Eye, The Day Today, The Thick of It and all other things Chris Morris, Armando Ianucci. For music, I just listened to Mousse T - Horny, and although a bit repetitive I think it has its merits.
The six things I could never do without
Fluids (it's just sensible)
Maybe I only have three. I'm really sorry, but I honestly think that's it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a bloody brilliant time. Either on my own with a bottle of
vino tinto doing a bit of introspection and that. Maybe some Bach?
or not. Often not actually. In fact pretty much never.
