My self-summary
I hate writing these things - how can one summarise oneself in a few short sentences and why would anyone want a shortened version of me anyway. Thats the trouble with the modern world - no attention span.

I'm many things to many people; I enjoy intelligence and creativity - both mine and others. I like people who refuse to put limits on what they are willing to think, people who can always find the awkward question and can't stop themselves from asking it.

I am Dark, Deviant, and Delicious
What I’m doing with my life
Dealing in old books which is a fantastic way to indulge a range of strange interests (history of the 17th century, typography etc), live in a house where books have taken over every available space, work from home and I read alot - its connected to work and those strange interests and sometimes simply for pleasure.

And I'm trying not to repeat myself - I'm now old enough to have made a wide range of mistakes which I plan to avoid repeating in the future - don't think I'll go into them here.

And sometimes it feels like I'm not doing very much at all - that everyone else is doing so much more with their's - sometimes I read peoples profiles and I just feel tired - they're working and going to the gym and raising money for charity and out with their many many friends and loving their family and writing a book and going to gigs and always happy... - well I'm living my life at a pace I'm sure I can sustain ;-)
I’m really good at
Being contradictory, listening to my friends (except one who just goes on and on and on), finding things that make me laugh (quietly to myself).... I'm bad at languages but hey, no-one's perfect.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never bothered to ask them - does that make me sound arrogant?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love the prose of Cormac MacCarthy - not sure he's ever written a bad book, recently read Merlin by Robert Nye which is filthy/funny, reading Malcom X's autobiography and a biography of De Sade. William Burroughs' (Place of Dead Roads & Cities of the Red Night) I wish I could read more fiction than I do but somehow I seem to have less time for that now than I once did. Maybe working with books has something to do with it and also that I love film and have recently discovered DVD box sets - so I sat down and watched all of Twin Peaks - got to love David Lynch. Also watched The Wire (5 series) which is the best thing on TV - (I think I can now go back and answer that question about what I'm doing with my life and the answers not pretty). Recently watched Dead Mans Shoes - great revenge movie and its British, The Wind That Shakes The Barley - great film. I eat to sustain my prodigious consumption of film and books.
Six things I could never do without
Friends, sex, coffee, my marbles, books and something else
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Recently I've been thinking, "Nothing is true. Everything is permitted." Supposedly these were the dying words of Hassan I Sabbah, Master of Assassins. The Beat writer William Burroughs was interested in I Sabbah and refers to him in his books. I like William Burroughs work although not all of it - this isn't really stuff I think about - at least not a lot of the time - I'm not sure what I do spend a LOT of time thinking about.
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing at all.
