Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Oi lives out in the sticks oi do! I'm not a secret crazy murdering
redneck though, I actually make books for a living rather than
nipple belts and skull lampshades. I like to think of myself as a
creative person. I studied art for many many years and like to keep
my hand in by painting and drawing as much as i possibly can. I
love being outdoors and am also massively interested in history and
all things old and from them days. So a walk that takes in an
adventure round a ruined castle followed by a lovely brew in a nice
old pub is my kind of afternoon. Possibly with tea and biscuits
somewhere in between. Failing that I'm always up for a bit of an
all night Jungle sesh instead... unfortunately there's not much of
that around in Shropshire so it means having to travel a bit
Currently training in Wing Chun which means that I'm capable of
one-inch punching someone through the thickness of 50 beautifully
bound leather books without leaving a scratch on them... while
balancing on one leg... and nipping flies out of the air with
chopsticks with my free hand... and so forth.
I'm interested in people who are reasonably well travelled (ie,
have been outside of their hometown more than a couple of times),
have a decent grasp of the English language and are capable of
writing a sentence without feeling the need to stick LOL at the end
of it. Anything else is a bonus. Chars. Oh... and... oooo
arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr lol... shit
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Errrr... i'm not quite sure that i'm REALLY good at anything. I'm
quite good at some stuff. I bake a mean scone, I bind a killer
book... there's a pig that i obviously feed extremely well as it is
quite obese! And, um... I'm very good at playing silly buggers.

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 to be honest. No Fifty Shades of Shite
or anything though. A book needs to be at least reasonably well
written. Currently reading some non-fiction stuff by Naomi Klein
and Richard Dawkins.
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
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
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
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm a natural meditator. My mind empties very easily :) But since i
spend far too much of my time at work, i end up thinking about that
a lot. Luckily i enjoy what i do so i don't think about how much of
my thinking time it takes up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm usually having a reasonably early night because i work most
saturday mornings. If i'm not working the next day then i may be
out in Birmingham with friends or having a swift beer in the local
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This would be the most public place to reveal something private.
I'm not really willing to reveal anything even vaguely private to
potentially thousands of strangers
