My self-summary
Hey there.
I'm Matt. I'm pretty much always trying to find things to laugh about, happiest when talking to people or listening to/playing music, or gaming with friends and laughing about terrible things on the internet, if I'm not out and about with friends or workmates.
What I’m doing with my life
I tell people how to get into teaching. I may also be looking to study a degree with the Open University in the near future.
I’m really good at
I have a ridiculous memory for songs, particularly lyrics and basslines. Being a half decent bass player and singer can do that to a person. Being snarky is another skill of mine.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually my weight, I'm a larger lad. If that's a problem stop reading now. Still here? Awesome.
My eyes, big and brown as they are. Or that I'm a huge geek/nerd and make some kind of unusual reference or comparison to other absurdities when discussing something.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Charlie Brooker's Screen Burn and Dawn of the Dumb. the QI books, The Art of War, The Prince, Lord Of The Flies, Hitchhiker's Guide, Love All The People... Lyrics, Letters and Routines by Bill Hicks, although most of my reading time is spent on TvTropes and Something Awful.

Movies: The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, American Psycho, This Is Spinal Tap, The 'Burbs, The Departed, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Caddyshack, Animal House, Rules Of Engagement, The Negotiator, American Beauty, BASEketball, Se7en, Fallen, Dirty Harry, Clear And Present Danger, Patriot Games, The Sum of All Fears, The Hunt For Red October, Hot Fuzz, Shaun Of The Dead, Collateral, The Godfather, Pulp Ficiton, Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, Dangerous Liasons, Arnie films (Hysterically bad)

Shows: The Wire, SPACED, Metalocalypse, Futurama, Drawn Together, The Young Ones, Black Books, and I'm about to start BSG. Should get round to Breaking Bad too.

I'm more of a gamer though to be honest, I'll play just about anything if it's fun, I really wish that plot based adventures games didn't die out, but I'm more of a social gamer, tend to play online, preferably with actual friends, good way to keep in contact :)

Six things I could never do without
Music, People, Games, Internet, Food, and Humour
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I can do to get myself a decent career, how to make myself a better person, as self improvement should be a constant goal, life, the world and universe surrounding it, and the best way to exist in it... or what I'm going to do when I get home from work. Typical stuff really.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out on the town, off to another town/city to.see people or just at home chilling
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have Asperger's Syndrome. Some social cues are still a bit weird for me, even though I'm mostly attuned to it all.
You should message me if
I seem like someone you could hold a conversation with.

If you're a complete geek and would like to share your various nerderies.

If you're looking for a gaming buddy, social activity partner and or just general bro-dom.

Or if you just want to!
The two of us
