Hello. I am a relaxed fellow who enjoys being near water, live performance, moody music, pub chats, a bit of a giggle and a bunch of other stuff.

From Mum Something: a calm detachment, an appreciation of the absurd and a love of beautiful places to walk and sit in
From Dad Something: a love of pool, the desire for significant attachments and the ability to regularly put my foot in it.
Spending too much time listening to Radio 4 and wasting London. Must get out more.
Working on a creating a puppet project with a chum.
Might start selling the clothes I make again soon.
If the house was burning and I could only save what I could carry between my teeth I'd go for:
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Withnail and me
But that's off the top of my head with flames licking. If I had a wider mouth and less peril there would be many more.
Some of my long term favourite long-players are:
The Black Swan - The Trffids
Tallahassee - The Mountain Goats
Blood on the Tracks - Bob Dylan
30 Something - Carter the Unstoppable
Swagger - The Blue Airplanes
Problems - The Singing Adams
My Pain and Sadness Is More Sad and Painful Than Yours - Mclusky
I find most of my music listening is courtesy of Radio 3 these days.
Books (this is hugely out of date but might give you the idea)
I tend to have a few on the go. Recently been filling in some gaps in 20th century classics but also like a spot of pop science and some classics.
Last finished: Daphne du Maurier - Don't Look Now and other stories (I enjoyed how the front cover fell off and made a handy bookmark. The Breakthrough was my favourite story probably as I wasn't expecting sci-fi)
Current bedside book: James - The Taming of the Shrew & other stories (still waiting for the right rainy night to finish it)
Current bag book: Bowles - The Sheltering Sky (I had never heard of this and only have it as part of a job lot. So far it's a joy)
Current Sofa book - Oxford Short History of English Literature (Hard going - so far everything anyone has ever written or read is about King Aurther)
Just saw a telesion advert for fifty massive laid-back tracks. That's the stuff i like less.
Things to do that I am good at and people like
Folk to share with and bounce off
Hope that the world can get better before it explodes
Chats about the biggests of dumb things and the dumbest of big things
The person I am hoping to meet on here.
That's plenty. You can have the last one on me.
I have always found life rediculous. But thought it would work out anyway. Now as a forty-three-year-old bachelor I think I should except so called reality and put some effort in. HELP!
Oh, and the mandatory: there is no such thing as a typ [ violently yawns at self in the face]
If we hit it off and split the rent we could afford several special holidays a year!
(I'm hoping some people think this is an amusing cynical joke and like my funny but also that someone takes it at face value and saves me money)
