My self-summary
My name's Michael and I live in Heaton in Newcastle and basically I'm a big nerd for music and sci-fi and stuff like that.

I'm a firm believer in science, and I have absolutely no time whatsoever for any New Age, astrology, homeopathy, spiritual/mystical shite.

Love having a good old shout about politics, especially when drunk. Politically, I'd describe myself as a recovering Marxist, basically I've spent the last ten years trying to iron out the creases of the hardcore revolutionary communism of my younger days, and trying to build up a more realistic set of ideals. I don't understand people who aren't interested in politics, or worse still - people who don't watch the news!

I'm all for nuclear energy, the space program, and public ownership of necessary production and infrastructure.

I'm totally against censorship of any kind, religion in schools, and an unregulated market of goods and labour.

I play the ukulele. I know it's like the typical fad instrument for wankers to play, but it's great fun and dead easy to learn. Don't knock it til you've had a go. I'm also attempting to upgrade to guitar and bass, with mixed results.

I love modern art, although I'm far from being an expert or anything, I just really like it. Too many people dismiss it because they can't be bothered to put the time in to think about it, (the same is true of politics).

I have a big interest in board games, it's a bit of a hobby. Currently building up my collection of games to make it the best. Thankfully many of my friends are also enthusiastic about playing, and my girlfriend is just as into it as I am.

I collect trivia facts and jokes, it's my aim to one day have either a joke or a fact about any subject. Tell me your favourite bit of trivia.

There is no excuse for littering, ever.

I have a girlfriend and we're very much in love, but we also see other people too. She is InternetPixie.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently assistant manager of a bar, it's pretty boring cos there are never any customers, it's not so much a bar as a place where old alcoholic racists come to die, but a job's a job. I'm not racist or an alcoholic. Mainly I just get paid to stand around reading my kindle and changing the odd barrel.
I’m really good at
I like to think I'm pretty good at ukulele, I've been playing for three years so if I'm not good then I've only got myself to blame.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I listen to pretty much anything but everyone says that these days, so i'll just list a few things I like:

*Kraftwerk, Radiohead, Ben Folds Five, Joanna Newsom, Philip Glass, The Raincoats, Herbie Hancock, Aphex Twin, Air, Mr Scruff, The Beastie Boys, Iron Maiden, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Little Dragon, Alabama Shakes, LCD Soundsystem.

Also I'm a massive nerd for classical music.

I read constantly. I prefer non-fiction; science books, history, politics, philosophy. but i'm still a big fan of fiction.

Some of my favourite novels, I reckon, are:

*Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger
*Moby Dick - Herman Melville
*Steppenwolf - Herman Hesse
*War of the Worlds - H.G. Wells

*Debt: The First 5,000 Years - David Graeber

*Salt- Mark Kurlansky
*Bad Science - Ben Goldacre
*A People's History of the United States - Howard Zinn
*The Psychopath Test - Jon Ronson
*Bam Samaritans - Ha-Joon Chang
*Homage to Catalonia - George Orwell

The six things I could never do without
InternetPixie, my ukuleles, Reddit, whisky, Question Time, my kindle.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend most of my time thinking about who's gonna make the next cup of tea, it can't be my turn, I've just made one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working or drinking, but not always at the same time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There isn't really anything private about me. That might seem like a ridiculous statement, but I'm pretty much 100% open, honest, wear it on my sleeves kinda guy.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–40
  • Near me

You should message me if
You should message me if you like tea, whisky, Reddit, politics, music, art, science, literature, board games, or all of the above.

You probably should not message me if you spend any significant amount of time on Tumblr. If you think the biggest threat to world peace is the cis-het patriarchy, then we probably aren't gonna get on.
