My self-summary
How's it going?

I'm Colin. I am 26 years of age, and grew up in Ireland for 22 years of my life. My life while I was there was cool. I was a street musician, studying Business in university, a strange mix. I am now a musician and I'm incredibly happy to be here in London, essentially living the dream.

Music, learning new things and meeting and getting to know awesome people are what my life is about at the moment, and I've been wonderfully lucky with everybody in my life, but sometimes if you want to find someone special, you have to look elsewhere. Looking for some fun times and a good connection that may lead to meeting the person I get to share a portion of my life with.
What I’m doing with my life
My life right now revolves around playing a lot of guitar, writing lyrics, recording material, gigging, meeting new people, keeping up with my own friends, going to the gym, working and a bit of lying down. I'm really glad that my life right now involves a lot of good people and my aim is to keep it that way.

I love it when it involves coffee and really good conversation. If anyone loves doing that, you are in my good books.

Also, lists. All the lists.
I’m really good at
A few things, thankfully. I am good at making people laugh, and at the same time good at talking serious. I'm good at being loyal and open about anything worth talking about with someone... by worth talking about I mean relevant.

I'm great at cooking, I play a couple instruments, I'm a singer, I read people really well, I lift heavy things off the ground, and apparently I'm a really good storyteller! I've just been told I'm really good at having an Irish accent. Not sure if that counts but it's going in anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've asked some people this question so that I can honestly answer it:

"He's a tank"
"What a lovely hugger"
"His laugh is pretty infectious"
"He doesn't sound like he looks"
"Nice beard, fella"
"Is he Irish? He is, I think"
"He drinks Guinness, stereotypical?"
"Fuck, his eyelashes are longer than mine!"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Inception, Dark Knight, Forrest Gump, Snatch, Lock Stock, Fight Club,and countless others, but they make the shortlist :)

Music: Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, QOTSA, Rodrigo y Gabriela, James Brown, Luciano Pavarotti, Gnarls Barkley, and most other soul, blues and rock, hippity hoppity.

Food: I love food, and cooking, and will challenge myself to make anything taste gorgeous. That said though, I tend to stick to stuff that is proven to be nice already, and trying to improve on it. Cauliflower is not allowed in my kitchen. Or Scallions.

Books:I'm BIG into biographies - Stephen Fry's, Richard Branson's, Kurt Cobain's, Bill Hicks', Jeff Buckley's, Anne Frank's Diary, I even read Jonathan Ross' one; It was shite. He is brilliant though.
The six things I could never do without
Music
Coffee
Guitar
Internet
An occasional sense of well being interspursed with moments of clarity and vision in relation to future aspirations
Socks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the stupidest thing I would do with a million pounds
the stupidest thing I would do for a million pounds
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working or playing music or enjoying the company of good folk for a variety of wonderful hobbies we are involved in. That or sitting in, watching a movie and trying not to burn microwave popcorn. Cook a roast dinner no problem, but microwave popcorn... Sigh.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You can ask me that question yourselves.
You should message me if
You actually want to have a fun first date
