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 boring.
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.
Films - My tastes are quite broad and encompass art house to mainstream.
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).
Ammunition. Yeah I know it's seven. I'm a maverick.
Or why none of us can ever walk away from Omelas.
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.
