Left-leaning liberal. Atheist. Feminist. Londonist.
Leisurely train journeys, although I couldn't cope with commuting.
Inclement weather. But also lazy sunny days. Crisp, bright, autumn mornings.
Long, rambling conversations.
Going to the cinema in the afternoon.
Eating out, esp. in Soho.
Noise bands, experimental, improv music in teeny and/or scuzzy venues.
Swimming, but only outdoors, preferably in winter (when the lido is less busy).
Art galleries and museums - I like these better when there are fewer people there (as with most things).
Having had a few work trips to various Nordic countries in the past couple of years I am fairly sure I could settle in Iceland or Denmark quite happily. Yes, I know, I've watched too many Danish crime dramas and Dogme movies, but dammit I want in on that brooding scenery, the Fair Isle knits, Mikkeller beer and Louis Poulsen lighting.
Movies: Pretty much all of Almodovar's films, some Vinterberg & Von Trier. Most Wes Anderson. Bit of Herzog.
Shows: Breaking Bad. Boardwalk Empire. Curb Your Enthusiasm. 30 Rock. Arrested Development. Girls. Louie.
Music: Sleater-Kinney, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Sonic Youth, Bjork, Neu!, Liars, Swans, Jesus Lizard, PJ Harvey, Factory Floor, Shellac, Nick Cave, Butthole Surfers, Nina Nastasia, Leonard Cohen, Earth, Sunn 0))), Neurosis. Getting increasingly into jazz and world music - Thelonious Monk, Ornette Coleman, Tinariwen, Bombino, Omar Souleyman.
Food: Liable to get a bit Agent Cooper about my coffee. Kernel ales. More generally, the spicier the better - Indian, Vietnamese, Szechuan, Sushi ...
My iPhone (sorry)
Current reading matter
You want to try something new and interesting. Not in a rude way. Although that could happen given time and plenty of yoga.
Basically I want to meet someone who has a positive outlook on life, a wide range of interests, is not afraid of trying new things and would generally choose a day/night out and about rather than on the sofa. Although pottering around the kitchen and reading novels in bed now and then is totally acceptable.
Or just an exchange of bon mots over some really excellent beer/cocktails/coffee.
