My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'll begin by saying that I probably spend too much time watching badly-edited, low-budget b-movies from the seventies, which I imagine goes some way to explaining why I have not yet found a lovely smart, cynical woman to tolerate me. I love music, film and literature, and am a bit of a self-professed nerd. Musically, I am fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to be friends with some real music-boffs, so am regularly exposed to a veritable melange of the glorious black stuff, mostly from the sixties and seventies. Groovy, eh? I'm a Cultural Studies graduate, so I read a lot and make pretentious observations while watching the telly. I'd had three years of dense academia, but decided that obviously wasn't enough so decided to undertake a masters degree in Comic Studies this year, which has been absolutely great. I love comics, and am very keen to find someone who will share, or at the very least tolerate this unfortunate addiction of mine. I also enjoy spending time with my friends, watching dodgy television programs, and tend to do just about anything to get a cheap laugh.

In short, I am looking for a woman who reminds me of my mother...

...only joking.

I am a bunny boiler, clumsey oath, and self professed geek
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just graduated with an MLitt in Comic Studies from the University of Dundee (it's a real subject...and no I'm not studying to be a comedian) and waiting to hear about funding for a Phd starting in September. I've come to realise that I am so inept at most other things that academia must be my true I've already got a tweed jacket and don't want it to go to waste. At the same time will be making a push to find a publisher for my in-progress autobiographical graphic novel and will be frantically thinking of a back up plan if the PhD falls through-hopefully something that combines my joint interests in the arts and health.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
First and foremost, making a fool of myself. Dignity and shame are two things that I don't seem to posess. friend birthday cards are always interesting to say the least

Academia..I'm good at playing the pompous academic

Cooking...well I wouldn't say really good, but I enjoy it. I can follow a recipe and I love to try something new most days.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that all my features happen in widescreen. My friends tell me that I look like the love child of Glenn Close, Robin Williams, and Boris Johnson. I also come from Cambridge so ask me to pronounce any of the following words with amusing results: raspberries, dance, prance, chance, glass, grass etc.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read almost anything that I can get my hands on. My favourite books include Catch 22, The Age of Reason, Orlando, Henry and June, Down and out in Paris and London, Hunger, Notes from the underground etc. I am also particularly fond of allegorical science fiction like Blindness, Woman on the edge of time, Cat's Cradle etc. My favourite non fiction at the moment has to be Working by Studs Terkel (although Oliver Postgate's autobiography is pretty wonderful too).

I am also obsessed with comics and cartoons and love Crumb, Joe Sacco, Marjane Satrapi, Saul Steinberg, Will Eisner, Bill Sienkiewicz, Dave McKean, Eddie Campbell, Ralph Steadman etc...I'll stop before I get carried away.

Film wise I like a bit of everything from cheap explotation cinema, British kitchen sink, documentaries and weird animations (The Point, Fantastic Planet, American Pop etc).

Music: I tend to love stuff that you can dance to that is put together with real instruments as opposed to auto tune/a vocoder (although a vocoder when used right is not a bad thing). Heavily into funk, afrobeat, post-punk, jazz, a little bit of industrial, krautrock, weird psychedelic oddities from around the world, as well as disco, Bollywood, and folk.

Absolutly love Scott Walker, Radiohead, and Can.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends/family-I have a small but tight knit group of friends who are extremely important and are like family to me

music, comics/books, food, pen/paper, nature

Kind of cheated there
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How not to sound like an idiot on here-not sure I'm succeeding
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends chatting, listening to music and watching films or out for a meal. More of a fan of quiet pubs than clubs nowadays (bag of nails being a recent favourite.) Enjoy browsing second hand book shops ,going to talks, films, confences and events,
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I seem to do much better at attracting men then women and many people have mistaken me for gay (apparently its the way I walk...amongst other things).
