Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My biography is not so interesting, it is like many of the other
people who reside in the kingdom of OK Cupid. I was raised by wild
wolves in the province of Tajikistan and at the age of three, I had
proved myself an adapt hunter/gatherer before being rescued by
Elstree social services.
After a tumultuous life involving firearms, nun running, drugs,
violence but very little sex, I found myself working in the media
industry which is all that you imagine it to be just more
Yes I have met famous people, no I cannot remember who most of them
are, especially footballers.
I am not one of the beautiful people.
I read, I write, I go out to do arty stuff when I can, I know a lot
of comedian types and try to pass of their jokes as my own.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to take over the world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Too many to mention.
Films - My tastes are quite broad and encompass art house to
The Battle of Algiers/ Inception/ Dune/ Kiss Me Deadly/ Brazil/
Letter from an Unknown Woman/ Barry Lyndon/ Remains of the Day/
Last Year In Marienbad/ The Passenger/ There's Something About
Mary/Ikiru/Seven Samurai/ The Conformist/ Mishima: A Life In Four
Chapters, etc. etc.
I also like Philadelphia, yeah sorry about that but Denzel is
terrific in it.
Books - I've been reading too much non-fiction and need to get back
to fiction. I've recently finished Andre Malraux "Man's Fate". Also
dig Ursula K. LeGuin, Herman Melville, Graham Greene and others.
Just not Martin Amis.
I try to go to the theatre when I can but need more of an education
in that area. I'm also completely musically illiterate and can
oscillate from stuff like Kavinsky and Blue Foundation to Krystof
Penderecki and Bruce Springsteen. I really have no taste but if it
can carry a tune, I'll hum it (so says the man who also has a CD of
Bulgarian sheep songs on the shelf).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Ammunition. Yeah I know it's seven. I'm a maverick.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to survive the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse. Shall I take over a
Tesco or an Asda? What say you?
Or why none of us can ever walk away from Omelas.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
to be found smoking in an opium den, wearing a top hat and behaving
On a first date, I would take you to a junk yard, give you a rifle
and we would spend the evening shooting rats... Or someone who
works in media.
