December 2014 is a good time for the first profile update in seven years. Also possibly a little redundant. I'm here to stay in touch with some old friends, but if you have something interesting to say don't be put off. New friends are always welcome.
I'm a father-of-one. A creative and literary events badass. An artist and occasional illustrator of children's novels.
That kinda sums me up. Along with the baggage that usually comes attached to these phenomena, etc., etc.
I'm also a musician, but, being honest, I'm not exactly Karlheinz f***ing Stockhausen.
Painting pictures. Or so I'm told. I'm not sure.
Singing the classics of Soviet opera in a firm, full-bodied baritone.
Or, more simply put: Don't know, don't care. Ask them.
I practically live in one of the largest bookshops in England. Let's not do this. We could be here all day.
Arthouse shit, bad sci-fi, cheesy action flicks, manga, Rodriguez, Tarantino, zombie flicks,
I have a small child. It's Cbeebies or gtfo. As it were.
I love almost all forms of music, the list I hate is much shorter, and I hate the following so f***ing much.
Anything from X-factor and rip-offs. Abba, Ace of Base, Billy Ray Cyrus, Bon Jovi, Cliff Richard, Conway Twitty, Happy Mondays, Jack Johnson, James Blunt, La Roux, Linkin Park, Shania Twain, Simply Red, Wagner, and many, many more.
I'm a fickle vegetarian. Don't try to cook for me, just make the damn coffee.
Also shouldn't need to add the boy to this list. Goes without saying. Point of breathing, and all that.
In which case. Wine, books, studio, coffee, pen, guitar.
What did you expect me to say? "Same thing we do every night, Pinky...." or "Dismantling a beached oil tanker on the Somalian coast"
Wasn't likely, was it?
I know. I'm sorry. I'm working on it.
