I'm a British artist and academic, i've lived in Pittsburgh since 2000 and come from London. My kids are the center of my life, though I only get half of my time with them-feast or famine. Much as I love my family they are thousands of miles away, so my friends are (as they always were) the glue that holds my scattered lifestyle together. Maybe you can join them, or be rather more...?
Throwing parties and cooking a few things rather well-my boys may disagree...they only remember the pizza anyway.
Love movies of all kinds, Ford, Kubrick, Herzog, Woody Allen, Hitchcock, Lean, Tarrantino, early Bond movies. Music: old musicals my Fair Lady, etc.
Shins, Pixies, Jimmy Smith, Bowie, Punk stuff, even some metal, Frank Zappa, Stones, Doors, Hendrix, Dinah Washington, Black Keys, Jam, XTC, Beefheart, Keith Jarrett, Sinatra...ah Sinatra! Gershwin, Satie, Dvorak, Debussy, Rogers and Hammerstein, Puccini, Bizet, Miles Davis. All over the place in other words and I'm not expert at any of it and I never have a decent sound system.
how lucky I am
the next party/dinner party at my place
whether to get a dog or not
how I can travel to London or New York
how I can get filthy rich
why 'liberal' is a dirty word in this country and a compliment in Britain
what to have for breakfast
whether I'm really allergic to gluten, or if it's just all my imagination
women, oh dear
why I'm not painting instead of being on this laptop
