That's a list of stuff. I've been told lists are a best a faux pas on this website but of all the sections this is the one I struggled with the most. I suppose my self summery should just read 'uncomfortable with self aggrandisement', though that would have the subtext of 'save yourself, stop reading this profile'. Ok then, Well a lot of people seem to think I'm funny and affable enough. Socially versatile I guess. Not the least or most bookish person In the world, which just means I can laugh at a video of a man falling into a giant bucket or coast along a conversation on agency and super-structure. (In slightly woolly vagaries of course).
hmm... quite restless, always finding somewhere to go or a new person to meet. Louder then average, full of strange euphemisms and the occasional, and totally accidental, Verboten joke. A product of not having much of a social filter for my poor brain. This section is stretching Itself into the slightly 'too long' category so lets just get to know each other ok? :)
Thats a lot of questions... I suppose in terms of protagonists I like anything focused around underdogs, outsiders or generally very bored people who don't quite understand the world. That sounds a bit gloomy on rereading... hmm... I should probably get into positive thinking and read more biographies of athletes overcoming the odds or something along those lines. Oh, also nihilist comic book characters like Punisher and the supremo fascist that is Judge Dread. No point asking why on that last one, I've never adequately been able to explain it to myself.
I've been through loads of 'stages' In my life and thus love many ostensibly contradictory genres when it comes to any form of art. Social realism, surrealism, existentialism, anything Marxist.......... The theme of obsession is also great! I love any film starring Klaus Kinski (he does it the best).
Books I've enjoyed in the past and can remember off hand include The Outsider, Flow my Tears said the Policeman, The Picture of Dorian Grey, The world according to Garp, Transmetropolitan, Nausea, Catch 22, Crime and punishment... lots more I'm sure
movies: Too many! Recently been getting in Michael Hanake's movies. Anything by the Cohen Brothers or Wes Anderson. Seventh seal/Deliverance/I am Cuba... Blade runner. Lots!
Tv: Anything surreal. Particularly anything with Chris Morris, Armando iannucci or Stewart Lee. I also really enjoyed the The Wire along with every other human ever who saw it. *
Music: Punk, Noise, Folk, Jazz - anything a bit weird or unique. Bands like Black Dice, Crass, Aphex Twin, Chrome, Beefheart, add N to X.. Throbbing Gristtle... lots more etc. The default feeling is anger and the default theme is death. Which is odd as I'm generally a laugh at everything sort of character :/
Food: I try my best to stick to a low impact diet both socially and ethically. My exception to this rule of thumb is I will try anything nad hopefully everything once. I cant explain it beyond the childish 'you have to try everything once' impulse I have.
