Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Cardiff post-grad just moved back home, currently editing a
Cardiff/South Wales arts & culture website (Plastik.me) after
working for Swn fest. Keep myself almost busy with bits of
reviewing, writing, running a music quiz as well as finding time to
be sarcastic, dance, listen to lots of music and generally messing
I hate giving self-descriptions but here goes - I was told I dance
like "a camp Mike Tyson" (Powerful but with choreography? I don't
know what it means but I like it), love wasted evenings spent
listening to music, serious cinema (plus bad movies with Shark in
the name), Philosophy, Cricket and other similarly
I love intellectual discussions, esp. European Philosophy such as
Nietzsche, Deleuze, Zizek and meeting people who're passionate
about studying stuff, absorbing new music and cinema and are
genuinely open minded.
It would be cool to meet people to have a laugh with and enjoy
Cardiff with and be a 20-something without the air of crushing
disappointment that people for no reason attach to the age range,
a)you have a wicked sense of humor (Things I love are - Garth
Marenghi's Dark Place, The Office, Monkey Dust, Stewart Lee)
b)you've an interesting film and or music taste and want to share
c)want to have a laugh and meet my friends.
