My self-summary
Hey, I'm Olly.

I'm a drummer. I'm in a band called The Dollcanoes and we play all the grrrl rock. I love to listen to music too. I listen to music from most genres regularly, including but not limited to: punk, new wave, alternative, rock, blues and film scores. I cry at You Can't Always Get What You Want by the Rolling Stones. It gets me every time.

I love board games, too. They're such a great way to spend an evening. If you haven't played The Resistance then look it up, give it a go, it's ace. Codenames, too. I'm pretty good at explaining rules now, so I'll add that as another of my strengths.

I like to go for bike rides, or get out and take photos. I'm currently planning a study on shop fronts of the Midlands. I just need a nice, sunny day. It'll be better than it sounds, I promise.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for the railway. The shifts aren't the best, but it's a way to make a living.

Outside of that, I put together a crowdfunding project for the band I'm in and we raised the cash to press some vinyl records. Recording is starting soon and I'm really excited!
I’m really good at
Following the instructions in Lego sets, cooking up tasty meals and critiquing the latest super hero films.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually notice my ginger beard. My hair is so brown, but the beard, it grows golden!

Books: Transmetropolitan, Brave New World, Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep, Y: The Last Man

Films: O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Star Wars, Blues Brothers, Guardians of the Galaxy

TV: Futurama, Parks and Recreation, Brooklyn 99, Frasier

The six things I could never do without
My friends are the greatest. They're all such great people, so they get top of the list.

Then drums, records, Netflix, dinosaurs and toothpaste I guess
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I've recently been asking myself "What happened?" when I see signs out and about.

I saw one that said "Absolutely no water balloons are to be filled up in these toilets" in the toilets in a park. Were the kids throwing them at the warden? And they thought 'I'll have the last laugh'?

And I saw a really long advert telling people that liqui-tabs are dangerous and you should make sure kids can't get at them. A warning on the box should be enough. How many kids ate them? Why were so many in the reach of children?!
On a typical Friday night I am
I'll be watching films, cooking a meal, out at the pub, playing games or at work. On a less typical Friday night I might be at a gig.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My housemate caught me in my pants eating a baguette once after a night out. She only wanted to tell me off for being too loud.
You should message me if
You should message me if you want to meet up, or chat, or whatever. I'm easy going. Also I've never been successfully Catfished, and I'm holding out hope for a UK series. I want to meet Nev! So, yeah, catfishers welcome too.
