Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a music
and maker seeking a kindred spirit.
I enjoy socialising
, going to gigs
, and dreaming of distant shores
high on the list of desirable destinations). One of those Generation X hippies
who remembers the
Second Summer of Love (but who was a little too young to fully
participate) and sets little store in the obvious material prizes
of widescreen tinopeners and power steering iPods.
Generally I love creativity
of all types - see
movie/music preferences below...
On the other hand I enjoy my work and am getting just about mature
enough to know the value of money, although I hope to develop a
creative sideline. Not really a sports fan at all, although I play
Squash and patronise the gym on a regular basis.
I'm pretty interested in politics
and current affairs
too, but do have
a weakness for various comedy
shows. Did you love Black Books
tickle your funny bone? Do you have a cunning plan? Answers on a
postcard to G. Meister, OK Hotel, Cupid Manor.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working for a speech tech company, and enjoying a pleasant sense of
bleeding-heart-liberal moral indignation at the conspicuous
consumption of the Home Counties. Looking for original music venues
nearby. Or any musical scene that doesn't involve the
twinset-and-pearls crowd. Dreaming about actively participating in
the microscopic scene that I have found.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm a sucker for art-house cinema
Eastern Europe seems to be producing some great films recently such
and 12:08 East of
). I also love old Hitchcock
films (Rear Window), 70s
classics (The Andromeda Strain
Taking Of Pelham 123
. Gotta love Dario Argento
too, Profondo Rosso
Musically, I love many types of jazzy
Bugz In The
, Lonnie Liston Smith
. Props to electropop heroes like La Roux
, Calvin Harris
, Add N To X
Get along equally with chart pop and dance cheese however. Love a
bit of bassline dancefloor action to counterbalance a mellow
session of Belle and
,Boards of Canada
or Kaidi Tatham
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A mild sense of weltschmerz
, tempered with a soupçon
Condiments starting with M.
The genius of Seth McFarlane
The promise that I and my army of mermen will some day find the
lost city of Atlantis.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The unnoticed logical fallacies and double standards we live our
lives by. The futility of moral absolutism. Puppies and swimming
How I can get a band together, and the fact that I should really
learn how to play that acoustic guitar leaning against the wall.
And then thinking that starting an 80s synthpop band could make my
keyboard skillz cool and trendy.
Whether the global economic recession will lead people to
reevaluate their materialistic ways, and we might see a return to
the glory days of early 90s raves.
Also, how people spend their free time, when they're not watching
The Apprentice or F1 racing...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Debating whether to go out to a club/gig, making a curry, then
hopefully not postponing the earlier plans til the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I use scissors to open resealable cheese, expressly
against manufacturer instructions.
