What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life is in boxes which resembles Manhattan Island. I am between homes and staying with my friend in his gay shrine.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being artful. Not flying but falling with style...No. Falling, crashing, breaking things on my descent, sprawling hideously on the floor, getting up in a crumpled state and blinking, smiling. That I do quite well at the moment.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My pointy beard and dapper appearance, then my friendly eyes, followed by my mischievous eyes, and then my obtuse humorous observations accompanied with a wry smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I read modern history so Antony Beevor and Tony Judt would appear here, too many books on art and design and natural history. And I take technical manuals to bed with me, so anything to do with advanced Photoshop will always be quite close at hand. I don't read many novelists but recently read three books by John Lanchester. Will Self also: a great modernist but perhaps he out clevers all of us for his own good.
Music: I fell off my chair when I heard the Juilliard's version of Bartok's six string quartets when I was 15. That still resounds in my head. I am very choosy with classical music but will listen to a wide range from Monteverdi to Penderecki, before and beyond. I listen to any jazz that is not self referential: Eric Dolphy to the Bad Plus. A lot of Hadouk Trio. It either sounds like a soundscape for a journey or something you want to dance to. Wordsmiths: Jake Thackray, John Cooper Clarke and Joni Mitchell, and Laura Marking with her smokey voice. Enough for now.
Movies: I never really go out to many though I should. Now that's an opportunity. I would say my most romantic movie is A matter of Life and Death starring David Niven. It makes me weep. As for fantasy I like Fellini's Casanova with it's outrageously Baroque sex scenes. Now that makes me laugh.
Food: I am quite happy with a salad and a creme broulee.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:

1. My technology: Large workstations, through laptops to smart phones.
2. Augmented reality as a result.
3. My son. My son.
4. Knowledge through every channel.
5. My good friends (Ongoing with new additions).
6. Meaningful physical relationship/s.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All natural and cultural phenomena. Form and function, creative thinking and looking for another angle/perspective/viewpoint, other people's dispositions, my own, and my reaction to these. Justice, functional and dysfunctional people and communities, and mutual reciprocity. Sex, me and the other person. Does that betray my class credentials enough I wonder.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I touch in with the habitués of my comfortable scruffy local to drink moderate amounts of beer and make good conversation. This is not an immovable routine though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This is not the right context to make serious confessions, so on a light note: I don't exfoliate as much as I should. Perhaps it's time to remove my older skin.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You do not obsess about stuff and want to litigate against shopping centres where walking between shops and up aisles gives you sore feet. You are not over showy with your wealth, or indeed your cultural capital. I come across enough people who piss so much higher than me, but they have somehow missed their mark. You do not kill wasps just because you dislike them: Someone might do that to you some day.
If you have passed the age threshold ( somewhere in the late twenties to early thirties) and have gained some insight and a sense or irony, and if you have not closed off, and are still alive to all things out there you are a very precious person and it would be a privilege to chat and meet with you.
