My self-summary
Neanderthal, but can pass for Cro Magnon on a good day. Not in touch with my feminine side, no sense of style, voracious carnivore, not a bit spiritual, and, frankly, a bit stingy (I think I'm just careful). But on the plus side dogs and cats tend to like me, and I'm very good at opening jars, so despite a few crippling character flaws you'll never have to go without tasty pickled onions and the like.

Films are a bit of a passion, also love good music, and seeing new places. And various other interests like history, archaeology, evolution, anthropology and psychology that make me sound intelligent (unfortunately the effect is lost when I let slip I also know a lot of Judas Priest lyrics; I really need to keep quiet about that). And I like shoving heavy-ish weights overhead, but not watching golf or football, because obviously that would just be silly.

That's enough rambling, if you've read this far we'd probably get on (or you think I'm a bit weird and you're doing some sort of clinical psychoanalysis - but even then we might get on). Would like to meet someone intelligent with a good sense of humour, especially if you need any jars opening (it's nice to feel needed).
What I’m doing with my life
Having adventures. Sorting out the recycling.
I’m really good at
Movie trivia.
Lifting fairly heavy weights.
Knowing obscure historical facts.
Staying sane.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmm, not sure... Could be the glass eye, the false teeth, the toupee, the prison tattoos, the nervous tic, or the hook in place of my left hand.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Blade Runner, Seven Samurai (any early Kurosawa), Godfather 1 and 2, In Bruges, Three Colours trilogy, Serpico, The Wicker Man, Manhunter, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Ed Wood, The Seventh Seal, This Is Spinal Tap, The Muppets Do Titus Andronicus (ok I just wish that one existed). Lots more.

Music: eclectic, but mostly rock, especially grunge.

Books: too many to mention, but more non-fiction these days. I loved Blood Meridian and The Road.

TV: mostly comedies - Peep Show, Brass Eye, Spaced, League of Gentlemen, Father Ted, Monty Python, etc.
Six things I could never do without
1. Books (pretty much anything)
2. Movies (but not mediocre ones - very good or very bad only!)
3. My cats
4. Guitar based music (but not Nickelback, obviously)
5. Lifting weights
6. Good food (mainly trying new things - does that count?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why, why, why we voted to leave the EU. I don't know how we took such a depressing, small-minded, ignorant decision.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting punched in the face and kicked in the ribs. I had the bright idea to take up Thai boxing at the age of 40.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It wouldn't be private then, would it?
Bit boring really, no weird fetishes relating to vegetables, no addictions, no dodgy business dealings, no cult membership, not a train spotter...
You should message me if
You have a sense of humour.
You hate sprouts.
The two of us
