My self-summary
Film graduate. Been living in London for a few years, now I'm back in my home town, bored out of my skull and looking for someone to hang out with and do cool stuff. Make some music, short movies, write, play videogames, or just bum around town with. That sort of thing.

I play bass, have been for a few years, and like taking old guitars, cleaning them up and restoring them to their former glory.

I'm trying to get out to see more live music. There's something appealing about standing in a sweaty room, drinking overpriced beer and self inflicting hearing damage.

Occasionally I work on proper feature films, doing glamorous things such as politely telling tourists to go away. It's become a speciality.
What I’m doing with my life
Using the vast amount of free time being a film graduate allows to broaden my world view by doing things I've never done before, either because they scared me or I'd never got round to it.

For example, going to Newcastle for a long weekend because I'd only ever been that far north once and that was to catch a ferry. Or flying to New York on my own for a week just to see if I could and the going to see a few Broadway plays while I was out there.

Aside from that, trying to break into the film business right at the bottom, learning new skills and beginning the journey towards grizzled media cynic.
I’m really good at
Retaining useless facts and forgetting important things e.g. names, passwords, where I'm meant to be on a day-to-day basis, etc.

Cooking. Better at baking cakes and biscuits rather than main meals, but I have perfected the cheats cottage pie.
The first things people usually notice about me
The hair, probably. People on the street mistake me for a girl ALL THE TIME. I'm used to it by now, it's been happening since I was a baby.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Great Gatsby, Philip Marlowe stories, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. Currently reading Cloud Atlas, Fahrenheit 451 and a book called No Saints of Angels somebody on Twitter recommended.

Movies: Being a film student, that's a difficult question. Most things from John Woo to Singing in the Rain. Ponderous naval gazing is all very well and good, but watching a car explode as it flies through the air is always fun. Lord of the Rings (extended cuts), all of Marvel's cinematic universe (including the Ed Norton Incredible Hulk), Gladiator, Highlander, Casablanca. I'm a big fan of early silent and slapstick movies; Buster Keaton, Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy, Roscoe Arbuckle, etc.

Shows: Lost, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica, House of Cards, Black Books, Spaced, Game of Thrones. Anything that I can watch in one huge chunk.

Music: Franz Ferdinand, XTC, Talking Heads, Ladytron, St Vincent, Maximo Park, Elvis Costello.

Food: Greasy take-away pizza, late night burgers, curry. Alternatively, a pot of tea and something cake based.

Videogames: I'll tag these on because I like them too. Anything with a character creator you can spend hours in when you'll hardly ever be looking at your avatar. And short downloadable games with cool ideas that don't outstay their welcome.
Six things I could never do without
1. Glasses (not that blind, but they help when reading signs)
2. Regular snacks
3. Human contact
4. Movies that are charming in their stupidity
5. Videogames
6. A steady wifi/3G signal
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Perfectly normal things that I shouldn't worry about as much as I do, until I wind myself up and end up in a right mess...

Er, that and what it would be like to be a spy in everyday situations.
On a typical Friday night I am
I live in the middle of nowhere, so avoiding drunken farmers and thinking about how utterly shit countryside public transpotation that stops running at 6:30 in the evening is.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once dressed as a girl on a school ski trip for a Blind Date evening.
I'm not afraid to say that I looked fantastic.
You should message me if
You appreciate the absurd. You can find enjoyment in the the stupid, the base, the crass side of movies.

You enjoy both wandering around town aimlessly and sitting in quiet cafes people watching while eating pastries and cake.
The two of us
