I am creative, musically inclined, and enjoy language.
I enjoy mucking about with Photoshop, designing various things. And I create music, which happens to combine quite handily with writing lyrics and designing band promotionals.
Apparently, I'm pretty darn good at being a teacher as well. Which comes in handy when it's your job. Currently teaching Dutch as second language to a bunch of 11-19 year olds.

I don't have a TV, nor do I miss having one. I rarely, if ever, watch films either.
Metal and more specifically bands that have evolved beyond metal. (Ephel Duath, Waltari, Lux Occulta, Manes, Shining (NO), Deathspell Omega, Gorguts, Ulcerate, Mayhem - but also more regular stuff like Strapping Young Lad, Amebix, Marduk or Skyclad.)
Jazz, Classical and various other oddball stuff. Man Man, Hexvessel, Virus, Skinny Puppy, Killing Joke, Krang, Dirge, Wovenhand / 16Horsepower. Some rap such as Dälek, Cannibal Ox and Aesop Rock. Heck, I could continue for ages. Long story short, my taste in music is expansive and eclectic. Odds are most it won't be played on the radio at all.
Anything that tastes good. Keep the broccoli away please. Not a vegetarian, nor vegan. Not inclined to become one, though I have no issue with skipping meat for a day.
Looking at the line above, I almost get the impression I'm rather self-centered. Let's just call it 'focused' instead, shall we?
