I’m a relentless optimist.
I like thinking about the future and how good it’s going to be.
I like my music, art and comedy dark and edgy, but I know how to smile :-)
These days I tend to climb up climbing walls more often, it keeps me fit without visiting the gym. Did you know that treadmills used to be used as punishment in Victorian prisons? I try to avoid them.
I did once go to a fancy dress night at a club dressed as Jesus though. Lots of strangers started bowing down before me and one guy tried to punch me in the face, luckily he was so drunk that he couldn't do any damage, fun night.
If it's loud and aggressive or dark and moody then it probably works for me.
Books: Anything by Greg Egan, Alistair Reynolds, Neal Stephenson, Ian M Banks, Charles Stross or Cory Doctorow is right up my street.
TV: Recently I've been enjoying Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory, Community, Homeland.
Past favourites include Spaced, Monkey Dust, Black Books and Nathan Barley.
Movies: If I thought too much about my all time greats I’d never get this written so here’s a few things I’ve watched recently that I thought were pretty good...
City of God, The Prestige, Gattaca, Rushmore, Moonrise Kingdom,
Books that transport me to fantastic places full of mind bending ideas
Conversation with people that make me laugh, smile and think
New things to experience for the first time
Great friends who have always got my back
Internet access to learn more about our amazing world and keep me close to the people I love
The amazing places I’m going to go once I get it.
I might even let you drive ;-)
Maybe not. More likely chatting nonsense and having a laugh with some of my nearest and dearest friends.
Like Goldilock's porridge your level of craziness is juuuust right!
Is that so much to ask?
