Hello. I'm Kenny. I am intelligent, sweet, passionate, generous,
charming, caring, witty, devastatingly handsome and great in bed. I
also lie when asked to describe myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Professionally: eliminating poverty. I have to be finished by
September because it's not a long contract. Nae bother. Otherwise:
dancing; going to gigs; doing a few good deeds and the odd bad one;
recovering Breaking Bad addict.
I’m really good at
Making a really terrific second impression.
The first things people usually notice about me
When I asked a friend about this, she said it's my smile and how
outgoing and friendly I am. Weird - I always thought I was a
miserable misanthrope. Funny old world.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything and everything by Douglas Adams; Lanark by Alasdair
Gray; Moby Dick by Herman Melville; Catch-22 by Joseph Heller;
dystopian stuff (1984, We, Brave New World etc.); short stories by
almost anyone. Actually, I don't read much fiction these days.
Politics, economics, wrestling and Charlie Brooker are much more
Music: Throwing Muses/50 Foot Wave/Kristin Hersh, Belly/Tanya
Donnelly, Bob Dylan, Alasdair Roberts/Appendix Out, The Beatles,
The Rolling Stones, The Cure, Buffalo Tom, The Pixies, Teenage
Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr., Breeders, Muse, Eminem, Eagles Of Death
Metal, Jim Jones Revue, Stanley Odd, Hector Bizerk, Street Sweeper
Social Club and many more.
Movies: Lord Of The Rings, Dazed And Confused (in fact, pretty much
Richard Linklater's entire oeuvre rocks), Empire Records,
Pleasantville, Sliding Doors (don't ask), Beyond The Mat (I'm in
it!), Funny Bones, Any Given Sunday, and above all, The Muppet
Movie. It's a work of post-modern comic genius. No,
Food: How does food fit in with the above? I like food. Lots of it.
Any of it.
The six things I could never do without
I'd probably struggle to enjoy life quite so much without rum and
Diet Coke, my neblings (this is a word I invented to refer to my
niece and nephew, because there isn't a collective noun for them
and there should be, damnit!), dancing, music and a cause to get
riled up about.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Recently, sustainable, low cost food projects and (food) poverty
reduction strategies. Politics in general a lot of the time.
Ways to adequately synthesise our increasing knowledge of the
nature of the universe with a belief in God.
How many messages do you need to ignore to be a "replies
selectively" person and how many people that puts off messaging you
Where I put that thing...you know - the thing, with the bits on the
end and the wee doo-dah. You know, the thing!
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing. The location varies, but I'm pretty much always dancing.
We can dance if we wanna. We can leave our cares behind. Cos your
friends don't dance and if they don't dance then they ain't no
friends of mine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own every issue ever produced of the She-Ra, Princess of Power
Please don't be one of the people who doesn't put an answer in this
box. You must have a wee secret that's no more embarrassing than
You should message me if
you're hot, intelligent, witty and fun. Or you're very rich,
terminally ill and have no heirs.
Additionally, I seem to have a knack for being the person you date
just before you meet the love of your life. If you're keen to
settle down soon, buy me dinner and it'll all fall into place.
