My self-summary
My life hasn't really turn out how I imagined as a child (at least not yet), I'm not a rich, famous philanthropist with exceptional ability at anything I turn my hand to, but on the up side I'm happy, have impeccable taste in music, am occasionally charming and funny and from time to time even sport a rather dashing moustache.
What I’m doing with my life
Work, roller derby, eat, beer, sleep, repeat.
Pretty much sums it up.
I’m really good at
Playing devil's advocate, making people laugh, accidentally insulting people, finding random solutions to bizarre problems, driving, massages (cliché I know, but it's true), I am also world class at sleeping.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look like someone they know.
And probably the moustache/beard...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't have set favourites, my mind changes with my mood, so here's a list of relative recents that I enjoyed.

Haruki Murakami, Jack Kerouac, George Orwell, Bret Easton Ellis (who actually flirted with me when I met him), J D Salinger, Hunter S Thompson, Chuck Palahniuk, Edward Gorey, Alan Moore.

Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind, Scott Pilgrim, City of God, Moon, Drive, The Warriors, Children of Men, The Life Aquatic (all Wes Anderson), ANYTHING with Bill Murray in (Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, Lost in Translation, etc) Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, 500 Days Of Summer, Donnie Darko, Battle Royale, 28 Days Later, Wayne's World, This is Spinal Tap, Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski, Fight Club, Fifth Element, Akira, Ghost in The Shell, 24 Hour Party People, Commando, Star Wars, Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro, Leon, The Lost Boys, Tron, Open Your Eyes, Infernal Affairs, Oldboy, Superbad, Terminator, Pineapple Express, God Bless America...
Simply put:
Zombies = good,
Cheese = good,
Pointless action = good,
Intellectual/pretentious = good,
Musical = not so good.

I don't actually watch tv, but I do still watch tv shows (if that makes sense?). I have/do enjoy -
Fight of The Conchords, The IT Crowd, Spaced, Arrested Development, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Adult Swim, anything involving Chris Morris or Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, BrassEye, The Day Today, Look Around You, Jam, etc), Doctor Who, The Wire, Twin Peaks, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Misfits, Generation Kill, Game of Thrones.
You can't not love early Simpsons.

My Last.fm
Talking Heads, The Beatles, Jeff Buckley, Flight of The Conchords, The Smiths, Cocteau Twins, The Concretes, The Cure, Pulp, Belle and Sebastian, David Bowie, Beck, Pixies, Sleater-Kinney, Le Tigre, The Shins, Television, Rolling Stones, The Black Keys, Joy Division, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Beach Boys, Martha Reeves, The Ronettes, The Shangri-Las, April March, Beirut, Bon Iver, Bob Marley...

Pretty much all food is good, especially - pizza, korma, falafel, hummus, Wagamama's yasai katsu curry, buttered toast.
I often get called strange for eating sticks of celery.
And I dislike mushrooms and melon.

...drinks - Tea, vimto, ribena, cider/perry, ale, gin & lemonade.
The six things I could never do without
Smart phone
Sun (I'm aware we hardly get any but I love it when we do)
Roller Derby

...I could probably live without most of these, they just make life generally that bit better.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cars, bikes, butts, boobs, cats and tats mostly.
Also my Tumblr, jobs, what film to watch, what to drink next... *tumbleweed blows past*

I spend an absurd amount of time trying to decide what to watch on Netflix.

I tend to overthink the actual plausibility of scenarios on tv programs or in films, especially bad sci-fi or horror.
On a typical Friday night I am
In or out, it varies from week to week.
Recently mainly staying in trying to save money and keep warm. Cat, cuddles and Netflix FTW!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
'Outgoing' and 'Open Minded' are the buzz words right? I'm on FL, but who isn't on here.
You should message me if
You want your life to be better.
