My self-summary
I'm Olly.
I write poetry and pretend to play guitar. Sometimes sounds come out that aren't shrieking monstrosities. That is how I define a good day.
What I’m doing with my life
Filling it with blissful space, through meditation, or a gluttonous helping of introspection. Playing around with the paradoxical balances of this being we find ourselves in.
The above sentence definitely takes the cake for phrases that vaguely present a life. The vague part certainly being a focal point.
I tend to have a very ambient approach to life, with a bit of vibrant neuroses coming out to play every now and then.

Have been working as a poetry archivist.
There is something intriguing about creating some kind of picture of a person from stacks of assorted publications, journal entries, letters, photos, medical bills and draft poetry.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I think my favourite reads so far have been Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance by Robert Prisig, and Asterios Polyp by David Mazzuchelli.
Other authors that hit a soft spot for me are David Foster Wallace, Edgar Allan Poe, Sylvia Plath, Aldous Huxley, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Haruki Murakami, Jorge Louis Borges, and a bunch of dead philosophers.

Movies - Momento, Brazil, The Big Lebowski, Man on the Moon, Being John Malkovich, 'Synecdoche, New York', Fight Club, Bad Boy Bubby, Rear Window, Magnolia, Moon, Zen Noir, A Scanner Darkly, He Died with a Felafel in his Hand, Studio Ghibli stuff, Space Jam, Japanese Godzilla films.

Shows - Twin Peaks, Community, Peep Show, and a fair few animes.

I'm pretty breezy with music but as I have been doing lists, here is another;
Leonard Cohen, Fela Kuti, Ray Lamontagne, Mason Jennings, Tim Maia, Jeffrey Lewis, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Books, José Gonsález, Elvis Perkins, The Band, Sun Ra, Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band, Adam Green, Devendra Banhart, Melody Gardot, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Robert Johnson, The Smiths, The Shins, Ella Fitzgerald, Velvet Underground, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Seatbelts.

I have also been told that I make more Nachos than any.

What a charmer.
Six things I could never do without
A sweet tune in mind.
An interesting thought.
Engaging material.
A deep breath.
The genius of broad explanations.
Regular Dungeons and Dragons sittings.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ideas that I jot on my phone/notebook/bar serviettes/toilet paper incessantly.
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally with some buddies having a drink.

I have reread that a few times. It sounds hilariously out of character, buuut so it shall stay.
You should message me if
While answering the questions on this site it has occurred to me that I find majority of them irrelevant, due to being entirely open to justifications for them.
Not to make life all about justifications, but if you'd like to have a chat about anything, I generally find that 'anything' is a pretty cruisy subject.
The two of us
