My self-summary
Hi there, I'm Ollie. Right, so here is a bit about me.

I live in the Taunton (South-west) with a good mate of mine. Currently on a finance graduate scheme at Debenhams, but still harbour the idea of finally going travelling properly and relocating in a place has more of claim to fame that just being 'that place between Bristol and Exeter on the M5'.

I love spending time keeping active with friends and family, movie nights, Summer festivals hence the name... especially home of the hippies at Glastonbury. Jumping at the chance for a fancy dress night. Weekend getaways - the more spontaneous and badly planned the better.
What I’m doing with my life
Watching all of Netflix. I mean everything but the ones with Adam Sandler somewhere in the credits (watched 5 minutes of Jack and Jill ironically once... OH GAWD still get unwanted flash backs).

Unfortunately scrolling down the FB notification page like a brain-dead zombie. The great joy of the 21st century!
I’m really good at
Well if these 24 years have taught me anything its the art of procrastination. I have an unnerving ability to do anything unless its constructive. Staying up to the unsociable hours of the morning for no good reason. Generally things detrimental to my well being :P
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm that guy still going for my 6th savoury plate in an all you can eat... (I'm very fortunate my metabolism is freakish).

I have a weird/unique surname. My parents decided to give the middle finger to tradition and merge names... much to the dismay of some the less progressive parts of the family haha.

Strangely enough my camel like ability to never go to the toilet. Very handy on nights out, means avoiding the drunken wasteland in the men's room!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Yeah sorry about these 4 painfully tedious essays... I could talk about this stuff all day haha. Feel free to skip

Movies: Spent my childhood fixated on Monty Python and still love them to this day. Adrenaline classics like Minority Report and the Bourne's or thought-provoking movies like Pans Labyrinth, Memento and Fight Club. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, short term 12 and The Pianist for my more reflective moments.

TV: Black Mirror, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Fawlty Towers, Peep Show, Green Wing, In the Thick of It, Question Time, The Office (US + UK), Misfits plus Louis Theroux gazing at people inquisitively.

Comedy: Ahh well Karl Pilkington is someone I have a mildly unhealthy obsession with. Eddie Izzard is an absolute legend of standup, Bill Bailey, Simon Amstell. Been lucky enough to see both Dylan Moran and Amstell this year :) Miriam Margolyes on Graham Norton is the best thing ever!

Music: Well Radiohead lead my account by an embarrassing margin! Also Sufjan Stevens, Muse, Arcade Fire, Elbow, QOTSA, Wild Beasts, The National and some classics like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. Aphex Twin, Burial and Bonobo have been filling my need for something new recently. Blimey I might even try a bit of Kendrick Lamar on my more out there days.

Books: JK, Tolkien and now James Ellory is someone I have really started to appreciate.
Six things I could never do without
A good sleep (I am a mess otherwise), Music, Internet, Exercise, Food and lots of it and finally friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
World politics, especially in America just because its so diverse and always has a bunch of nutters running for presidency. I wrote that last line even before the Trump and Clinton baloney had started!

Contemplating questions about the big topics like religion, inequality and is that dress White & Gold or Blue & Black.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends if possible. But sometimes a nice chilled out movie or music can be the perfect recovery after work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often sing along to music like a 10 yo fan girl. Shower song of choice... completely ironically may I add, is Nude by Radiohead.

Stupid anecdote incoming: Went blind for a day after I got shot by a nurf gun (look I know I'm 24 and not 10). Although on the advice of the doctor I did get to wear Matrix shades (looked Boss) in work for a week - lets just say my colleagues thought it was a tad funny.
You should message me if
You have a keyboard and aren't a death eater
The two of us
