Being a creative I like going to Galleries, Museums and to the Theatre. I also like going to Food Markets, Restaurants, Cafes, Clubs, Music Festivals and local Film screenings.
This year I also did a 10K run for British Heart foundation, I almost died but I completed it.
Really like reading Biographies, I like to know what makes an individual tick. My favorite is Richard Pryor’s Pryor Convictions. Classic English Literature, Catcher on the Rye,1984, Animal Farm, View from A Bridge, Freakonomics, Boys Don’t Cry, Notes On A Scandal, Birdsong, View From A Bridge,The Alchemist
I am a cinephile, a true fan of cinema. Too many films to list to say what’s my favorite. I own a Cineworld card, which means I go to Cinema at least once a week to watch independent and mainstream releases.
There Will Be Blood, Control,This is England, Molvern Callar, Sexy Beast, Prisoners, Enermy, No Country For Old Men, Black Swan, The Bridge By The River Kwai, Brief Encounters, Magnolia, American Beauty, Se7en, Schlinder’s List, Elephant, American Pycho, Happiness, Kids,Chinatown, LA Confidential and Taxi Driver
Just in case you think I am film snob, I watch all types of films; being a filmmaker I like character and story. I have watched all the Comic Book films. Can Wonder Woman save the DC Universe? I recently watch Pitch Perfect, which I thought I would hate, but it had Black Street, Simple Minds and Ace of Base all in one film. Instantly won me over! I’m a sucker for 90’music.
This neatly leads into one other passion in life. Music! Eclectic seems to be the generic word used when describing one’s varied taste in music, I would like to say I have a broad ranging taste. lol

Tupac, NAS, Biggie Smalls, Kendrick Lemar, Joey Bad A$$, The Lox, ASAP Rocky, The Weeknd, JAY –Z, The Clipse, Rick Ross, Rakim, Common, Talib Kweli, Robert Glasper, Kanye West, yes he is annoying but his earlier work was exceptional, the media circus is only done to keep him relevant in today’s music.
I am retrospective thinker, looking at the bigger, wider issue rather than just looking at the one isolated problem. It’s an interesting time in the world in politics, media and sport. What’s your thoughts?
