My self-summary
Hullo, my name is Craig :) I'm 22 years old and I live in Hiroshima, a wonderfully tranquil city in Japan. I'm an awfully talkative person, I'll happily wile away hours and hours discussing the finer points of anything you wish to. I enjoy music before I enjoy anything else: mostly indie with some heavy rock, drum and bass, pop and a sparse amount of rap thrown in. After music though, I like film + tv (obviously), politics, literature, comic books and silly philosophical musings (time travel is a favourite).

I am fuh, king, and ace
What I’m doing with my life
Well at the moment I`m living in Japan teaching kids how to speak english. I`m pretty good at it, but more importantly, the kids like to laugh at my stupid western face.
I’m really good at
Playing computer games for hours on end.

I'm awfully good at being either self-depricating or self-agrandising, usually both within the same sentence. This makes it difficult for any one to believe what I say.
The first things people usually notice about me
This is what usually runs through somebody's head when they first meet me: **Woah, that guy is really thin.. he seems nice, talks a lot though.. I didn't really want to start arguing about the exact cast list for Buffy the Vampire Slayer but I will not let him be right!.. my god, I can only listen to someone bang on about time travel for so long..**

So yes, people usually find out I'm quite skinny and that I talk a lot. Hopefully though, my handsome features and my sparkling wit weigh in my favour.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I've always been a fan of 20th Century dystopian literature, obviously 1984, but also Oryx and Crake, Riddley Walker and A Clockwork Orange. I love Ted Hughes' poetry, especially Crow. I love DC and Vertigo Comics: Batman and Preacher rock my socks. And yes, comic books are a valid form of literature you naysayers, you.

Movies: I recently watched Closer and loved it. War films are a hit: Black Hawk Down, Bridge over the River Kwai, The Pianist. My favourite directors are Tim Burton, Danny Boyle and Darren Aronofsky.

Music: The holy trinity are Radiohead, Interpol and Brand New. Currently I'm listening to lots of Joy Division and Pulp. You should also throw a bit of PJ Harvey into the mix.

TV: Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Battlestar Galactica, most Ricky Gervais, DS9.

Computer Games: Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, GTA, COD, Half Life, Kart, Smash Bros, Zelda, Resident Evil etc.
The six things I could never do without
1) My rather large collection of film, tv and music. Theres enough there to keep you watching or listening for 5 months straight (literally).

2) My record player and my sexy black vinyls.

3) My array of musical instruments that I can't really play but pretend that I can.

4) My leather jacket.

5) Scarves. Cheapo woollen or plush cashmere.

6) Torrents.

Unfortunately since I`ve moved to Japan, I have almost none of the above with me. And I don`t seem to be dead yet, so maybe it should read "the six things I don`t want to do without".
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. And then I vocalise it.

Why is every girl on OKC bisexual when, in the real, I know no bisexual girls?
On a typical Friday night I am
Planning lessons for my next lot of classes on Saturday.

Or putting on my metaphorical slippers, brewing a literal hot drink, and readily watching any and all tv.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One of my best friends in the world is my 14 year old brother. We play computer games together all day and watch Star Wars and Harry Potter DVDs at night.

And it is excellent.
You should message me if
You live in Hiroshima!

You're French, because I would love you. I'm a francophile and I intend to live in lovely, lovely France one day. I can't speak much french but I'll get by selling my body for the continental breakfast.

You're real. I'm very suspicious of the beautiful girls on this site; they may be scams. Or the girls who list 'sex' over and over again in their profile. C'mon, we ALL know that women hate sex and only use it to control the childish, malformed minds of men.

Mostly though, you should message me if you bum Radiohead // like debating the ludicrousness of time travel // know who the Hot Puppies are // heart Alyx Vance.
