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.
This place seems like a great way to meet new people, whether it be just a chance to have an interesting chat or something more serious :). So drop me a message if you feel inclined ;) - I promise I'm not a one of those FUCKBOIES that I hear so much about on here :/
Unfortunately scrolling down the FB notification page like a brain-dead zombie. The great joy of the 21st century!
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!
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 last.fm 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.
Contemplating questions about the big topics like religion, inequality and is that dress White & Gold or Blue & Black.
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.
