Music is a big thing in my life, and I absolutely love all types (except modern R & B - Beyoncé etc). I'm into tracking down songs that have been sampled, finding the original version of a well known song, weird rare songs as well as new bands emulating sounds from the past. I am very lucky to have a great family who are into all sorts of music.
I'm also fascinated by astronomy, and science in general. How humans have managed to figure out to see these things is amazing enough, but then the complexity and scale of quantum theory, the size of the universe or its shape etc.
I am very loyal to friends and family, and I love meeting new people - after all, "a stranger is only a friend you haven't met". I always try and make everyone feel involved in a conversation and I store a lot of useless facts to pass on!
Love going to pubs (preferably the old style, where all the food you can get is a packet of crisps or peanuts, not these new gastro ones), live bands and 80's/Indie clubs!
The only bad thing are the working hours (4pm - 1am) and the fact that two weeks out of five, I'm working the weekend. If I was to meet the right woman I could change this.
Hoping to see more of the world as my travelling has been unintentionally limited!
Knowing what country a flag represents. I find it interesting to know the history and symbolism involved.
Thinking I sound like Johnny Cash (particularly after a few brews!).
Mainly stuff from when I was younger, such as Adrian Mole, A Hitchicker's Guide To The Galaxy, all the Roald Dahl books, all the 2001 Space Odyssey books. Read mainly factual books nowadays.
80's action films (Predator being one of my favourites, followed by all the Rocky films, Total Recall, Rambo etc), spooky films (Eyes Wide Shut, Mulholland Drive, The Shining etc) and films such as Sin City, Fire Walk With Me, Duel and Ghostbusters.
Twin Peaks (massive fan), Horizon, Family Guy, The IT Crowd, Father Ted, Little Britain, Spaced, Red Dwarf etc.
Johnny Cash, JD McPherson, The Smiths, Inspiral Carpets, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Inkspots, Eric B. & Rakim, Seasick Steve, James Brown, Public Enemy, Nirvana, Guns n' Roses, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, Lead Belly, Chemical Brothers, Stone Roses, Buddy Holly, Madonna, Led Zeppelin, Beastie Boys, Queen, Link Wray, 90's House, 80's Pop, Jazz, Burlesque, Motown, Rock & Roll, Old Skool, Classical, Opera, Ska, Dub Reggae, Surf, Alternative - basically everything apart from modern R & B.
Pretty much anything apart from sushi. Maybe I'll be converted, but everything about it seems disgusting!
2. Pubs - particularly ones with a bit of character and a friendly bunch of people.
3. Gigs - it's great knowing that everyone else there loves the music you love and hearing your favourite tunes blasted out full volume.
4. All my CDs stacked up so that they're level, with the newest at the top (probably classed as OCD, but what the hell!)
5. iPod - literally listen to it for hours (although I do often wonder why I'm flicking past tunes I put on myself?!)
6. My Irish genealogy - gives me great drinking stamina, a love of potatoes and a plethora of useless but funny sayings, such as "Die dog or shite the hatchet"!
How humans have invented so much amazing stuff and how we are so ahead of any other living thing.
Music to buy - I'd be rich if I could calm it down a bit!
