I have some lovely shirts; & the sort of bookshelves & record collection that would suggest a geek. I'm not a geek (clearly I am).
Likes: Girl bands (Sleater-Kinney, Vivian Girls etc), English novels 1900-1970, the poetry of Frank O'Hara, modernist architecture, Bourbon biscuits, strong sweet tea, banoffee pie, books about communist Eastern Europe, peculiar words.
Dislikes: Fascinators, cummerbunds, the backwards baseball cap, the many evil works of the onion (veg, not American satirical organ), Fearn Cotton, poor quality ale.
Otherwise, I read, I socialise, listen to music, and do all the rather predictable things folk do.
I'm also quite good at swinging between seeming serious and intelligent and seeming a total arse.
Music- The Beatles, The Smiths, My Bloody Valentine, Yo La Tengo, Sleater Kinney, Sonic Youth, Elliott Smith, Suede, Julia Holter, Real Estate, Sebadoh, Joanna Newsom, Indie generally, 60s, and Soul/Motown (Otis, Marvin, Ann Peebles, Smokey Robinson etc). I am obsessed with music and have been since 13, only books come close.
Films- Big Lebowski, Amelie, Woody Allen films, LA Confidential, Coen Brothers films, Juno, A Single Man
TV- Black Books, Spaced, Father Ted, QI, League of Gentlemen, Pete and Dud, The Avengers (60s British series, not Marvel), Stewart Lee, Sherlock, and any good docs I can find.
CDs to play on it (though they number somewhat more than 6).
A wilful sense of disregard for propriety.
Red wine or real ale (something named after an animal, preferably involving a pun)
And currently, Why am I fascinated by Henry James, yet find his books tough-going?
The strange dynamics of human desire & affection.
The marvellous diversity of linguistuc euphemism for genital areas
Pouting: what the hell is that about?
Oh, and I'm made of biscuit.
If you are a vintage-dressing redhead, then that world be good too. But that's a very slight preference, not a hard & fast 'type'.
(I don't have A-list, so if you like me, then just message me; I don't bite, honest)
Ps. Grammar & spelling are reasonably important to me, but I can forgive typos.
