I've been variously described as looking like an American Apparel employee, a character from Hollyoaks (no-one in particular), the brother of someone famous (again, no-one in particular), and as having an air of the mosh pit about me. Not sure about the first two, but I'll take the others. In the interests of full disclosure this was as part of an exhibition that required me to stand in front of a panel of strangers who had 2 minutes to type out their first impressions of me. Plus it's about 2 years old by now so it might be a little out of date, but it gives me something interesting to open with right...
Anyway, whilst it is mostly false, there is some truth to the latter description, and it's the tattoos that might give the game away. However, it's only a half truth, as mosh-related tunes only make up a small part of my, shall we say, catholic (small 'c' is crucial here - I am pointedly not religious) tastes in music. Be it electro, indie, hip-hop or hardcore (or anything that takes my fancy and has a little passion in it), I'm generally not far from either a pair of headphones or a sweaty dancefloor of some kind.
And I of course spend a lot of time with my friends who, like everyone else's, are the best in the world.
Music - too much to mention really but some current and all time favourites are Daft Punk, Refused, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Moderat, Rustie, Twin Shadow, Cashmere Cat, !!!, Autre Ne Veut, Deftones, ETID, Doom, John Talabot, ELO, M83, Dilla, Phoenix, Brand New, Cut Copy...
Movies - an impossible question to answer but off the top of my head - Blade Runner, Pan's Labyrinth, Scott Pilgrim, La Haine, Miller's Crossing, Delicatessen, and a huge love for any 80s kid's/teen movies...

I don't drink tea. Or coffee. I know, I know, I'm a weirdo and even my mum has considered disowning me because of this.
If you're not one of the surprisingly numerous people on here who seem to think that the Earth is bigger than the Sun. Also, 'wherefore art thou' means 'WHY', dummy; this is a verifiable fact and not up for debate, as so many people who have messaged me seem to think.
If you're able to make a profile for yourself that isn't constructed completely from clichés. We all do it sometimes, but on here I really am struck by how many people are 'down to earth' or are looking for 'a partner in crime'; notwithstanding the fact that your greatest crime is probably littering, it's a little unoriginal guys.
If you will challenge me (but again, NOT on the meaning of 'wherefore art thou Romeo'). I've come to realise that it's all very good and well having someone who likes all the same things as you, but it's a bit boring to agree all the time. I've got strong opinions and you should too.
