My self-summary
My name is Martin.
Nice to meet you :-)

I'm from Glasgow, in Scotland. Recently I moved to Frankfurt Germany - I work as a head of department for English in an International school.

I absolutely adore music, both writing my own and listening, love film also, and I appreciate calmness in life. That said I like to party hard on occasions (like for example Edinburgh's Hogmanay 2014 NYE celebrations yesterday!)

A little more on music; I write my own as I said and have played in several bands in the past. All the bands have played atmospheric, indie/post-rock music which is my true calling. That said I absolutely embrace most music, with Neo/classical and electronica also holding great appeal. If you're not into music at all, or find it a distraction in your otherwise busy life, it's best not to message me.

Bands I adore are (in no particular order):

Sigur Ros
Explosions In The Sky
Mogwai
Mono
Idlewild
This Will Destroy You
Rival Consoles
A Winged Victory For The Sullen
Crystal Castles
Justice

...and many more

With regards to movies I really appreciate the work of directors such as Lynch, Fincher, Kubrick, Cronenberg, Del Toro or Anderson. Choosing a favourite movie of all time is unbelievably tough, but perhaps since 00, I'd say 'Pan's Labyrinth' by Del Toro could be one of the most perfect movies of all time. It's just spellbinding.

I'm looking for someone with similar shared interests based in and around the Frankfurt area. My work is kinda busy during the week but I need to meet new people and enjoy the city, hence my recent sign up on here.

I won't look at you twice if you smoke: it physically and morally repulses me.

Feel free to ask me anything I've not covered. I don't bite. Unless provoked ;-)

Thanks,

Martin

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music
On a typical Friday night I am
Typically I either fall asleep watching a movie or I go out

I'd say 80% of the time it's a)
My work week is kinda intense and by Friday my battery is usually in need of a sleep recharge
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I'm angry I like to listen to Neo-classical music by candlelight till the feelings seep from me.
You should message me if
your love of music either touches mine or you admire that because essentially music is my religion
