My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm pretty into reading and video games.

As my father likes to remind me, he was born in the same hospital as John Craven. Alan Bennett's dad was his butcher growing up, and he lived down the street from Richard Hoggart. Somewhere between these three anecdotes, my sensibilities start to come into view.

Hard left feminist, Dvorak user, RPG abuser, bar worker and cheese fanboy. Notable peaks: Oasis breaking up, being stood up and going home to begin learning to play the keyboard, revealing to my much younger brother that I know *everything* about Pokémon. Notable troughs: Tony Benn's death, every time I see George Galloway's face, being poor and having to eat industrial food, living in the UK with its culture of industrial food.

New DavelyDave, New Britain: under a New DavelyDave government, all urban roads would be partitioned into highways and Dutch-style cycleways (wide, red, smooth, unbroken, and separated from the road by at least three feet, with angled kerbs). The National Curriculum would include lessons in Python, cookery, and economics. A Citizen's Income, starting at £11,000, would be made available to everyone, and incorporated into a progressive income tax, with a top band of 80%. Prescription charges out, abolition of the police and prisons, nukes shot into space, donations to political parties banned (each instead is given an identical allowance assuming it obtains a 2% threshold of the vote), the Speaker as Head of State, large parties to be split up along ideological lines by writ, PR, seven federal states, withdrawal from permanent UN Security Council membership, and lessons in how Yorkshire puddings are a starter, not a side, to be cooked fresh under the meat, and not from frozen, for all citizens. My dad taught me to make them with dozens of eggs.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I work in a bar in Earls Court. I'm working on finishing my degree.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
At my best, I can tell a good story. I'm okay at cooking. And I usually win in Smash Bros.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I read every word printed in New Left Review, the London Review of Books, and EDGE. I'm not into dailies, but I'm a Grauniad type. I browse Polygon a lot.

I'll have to return to this section to write about books.

I listen to dozens of hours of radio a week. My favourite audio comes from the National Archives podcast, 99% Invisible, Little Atoms, Inkstuds, Love + Radio, Novara, Thinking Allowed, One Life Left, Idle Thumbs, and Stuart Maconie's Freak Zone.

Strangers is always touching. The latest one (this written 15/08/14) got to me. Any podcast about online dating has my attention.

Favourite and recently enjoyed games include Majora's Mask, Etrian Odyssey, Fire Emblem 7, Gone Home, Portal 2, FF IX, Fallout: New Vegas, SuperHexagon, Dark Cloud, Braid, Shadow of the Colossus, Mario Kart 64, Super Smash Bros Brawl, and Super Metroid. I'm very excited about Crypt of the Necrodancer.

For those looking to grok my gamer politics: I think Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn are two of the best things to happen to video games. I trust Chris Remo's recommendations implicitly. Anything tagged "not a game" on Steam is likely already in my library. I am frequently wary of revealing to gamers that I am game-literate, because I'm not interested in talking about the latest CoD, or about how feminism and SJW activism is ruining games.

Mad Men is the best TV show ever. Also good: Buffy, The Sopranos, The Wire, The World at War, Civilisation, The Ascent of Man, Veronica Mars, anything with Simon Schama, The Legend of Korra, Steven Universe, Adventure Time and Gravity Falls. I am anime-literate; I like very silly sci fi anime like Outlaw Star, Dirty Pair or Kill la Kill, but I also enjoyed Samurai Champloo.

YouTube is a goldmine for old documentaries, or unfashionable tele-essays. I like to kick back with Kenneth Clark's Civilisation, Carl Sagan's Cosmos, any Simon Schama, The Ascent of Man, Andrew Marr's histories, and most especially, the complete works of Jonathan Meades, head of my order and lord of my heart.

My favourite webcomics are Unsounded, xkcd, Dresden Codak, Kate Beaton's little holiday diaries, Stop Paying Attention, Ava's Demon, Family Man, Dicebox, and A Lesson is Learned but the Damage is Irreversible.

Elsewhere in comics, I idolise Marian Churchland, Jaime Hernandez, Brandon Graham, and countless others.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Like many single young men, I use radio to simulate conversation, and to supplement my anaemic social interaction.

That said, I value my space, and require the ability to flee back to my cave. I don't think I'd eventually want to move in with a partner.

I need to understand the history of the objects and ideas around me, or I feel like an ape banging pots together. This can mean that I become obsessed with ideology and heritage, sometimes perhaps to my detriment.

I don't know where I'd be without Richard Nixon.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm going to eat today. On the menu right now: Lucy Knisley's carbonara recipe, bollito misto, weetabix with full fat milk.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working until late in my shitty bar. Failing that, relaxing with a good podcast and some candied ginger.

Feeling ashamed that I've never read Foucault and don't understand Foucault speak.

If I can get some people together, playing Smash Bros, Perfect Dark, Halo, Mario Kart or Super Bomberman.

While not always on a Friday night, I'm not above a good hike, a potter around an overlooked church, or playing a laborious board/tabletop game.
