What I’m doing with my life
Working full-time as an artisan book binder which basically means
that i make posh expensive books for posh expensive people. Living
in the middle of nowhere is all very lovely and beautiful but i try
to get into the city as much as i can so i can see and visit real
people. Talking to horses gets a bit boring after a while.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Don Quixote (see username), The Iliad, The Odyssey, pretty much anything by Hunter S. Thompson, the Flashman series by G. Macdonald Fraser, Perfume, Tolkien, Pullman's Dark Materials series, anything by Neil Gaiman, Wilde... errr... well i'm pretty game for trying most books really. Mostly fiction though but I do enjoy a good history book from time to time.
Movies - Hard to say. A few that are up there are Delicatessen, Oldboy, Scarface, Leon, King of Comedy, North By Northwest and about a million others. Don't get me going on films, i own literally hundreds of them.
Music - Depends where i am and what i'm doing but when i'm at home i generally listen to folk, blues or 60's/70's music. Soooo... Son House, Skip James, Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom, Vetiver, John Martyn, Roy Harper, Otis Redding, Led Zep, Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa and Beck are just a few
The six things I could never do without
Music. Books. Friends and family. Fresh air. The promise of travel
and adventure. Coffee.
In an ideal world all of these things would be together all the
