Can't see likes because I'm too miserly to pay for a spangly full account thingy.
The brief version:
- Gothy rocker musician guy. You know the type.
- Love pretty much everything arty
- Aspiring vet
- Atheist/rationalist/nihilist/etc. party pooper. I could not be less spiritual.
- Likes animals more than people tbh
- Depressive but very silly, usually at the same time
The longer version:
Originally from a small town in Kent. I love the city but am still spiritually a country boy. I dream of living in a little old house in the woods with a big cuddly dog and a sheep and a pig and some ducks and things. Or by the sea. But on the other hand I like being able to buy a panini at 1am and not being constantly bored out of my mind (which, unfortunately, is a fairly necessary part of country living).
I seem to be the only person on OKC that isn't into cooking and/or travelling. I don't know what my Myers-Brigg type is.
Note: in an ideal world, I would prefer if women approached me rather than me approaching them. It just suits my personality a lot better. Unfortunately, gender roles still seem to be expected to apply there. But anyway: should you want to, I would very much appreciate you initiating contact :)
To be honest though my reason for being alive is doing creative stuff, mainly music and graphic arts (have tried writing, but I'm rubbish at it). Taking too many baths. Playing with the cat.
TV: Young Ones, One Foot in the Grave, Blackadder, Python, Alan Partridge, Black Books, The X-Files, documentaries about horrible things.
Music: punk, rock, a bit of metal, a bit of pop. The first ones that come to mind: Hole, The Misfits, Manic Street Preachers, PJ Harvey, Nirvana, Die Antwoord, Rudimentary Peni, Muse, Peaches, Placebo, QOTSA, Silverchair, Royal Blood, Kate Bush, Crass, Lawrence Arms, Marilyn Manson, Lady Gaga, King Blues.
Movies: Kind Hearts & Coronets, the Alien franchise, Fight Club, Casablanca, Indiana Jones, Tarantino, Powell & Pressburger (Black Narcissus, A Matter of Life & Death, Colonel Blimp, etc.).. basically a mixture of cuddly old black and white movies and kind of unpleasant modern ones.
also perhaps more pertinently - actually I don't spend a lot of time thinking about this, but I am thinking about it currently: the wall between any two given human beings and how kinda crap it is you have to get past that stage of awkward small talk before you get to really connect with someone. Frankly I'd quite happily immediately plough into all the weird and unflattering bits of our respective psyches. Because that's the bit that matters, isn't it? Rather than all the "What do you do? Oh, do you enjoy that?" thing. Like a bloody job interview or something.
I always find it ironic that generally people try and hide all that sort of stuff and appear normal because they think it makes them more attractive (and I suppose it probably does to some people) but it's all the weird crap I find most interesting. It's the stuff that makes us who we are as individuals.
Fairly depressing that I have to state this at all but I will not hurl random abuse at you nor will send you unsolicited dick pics regardless of circumstance. Because why the hell does anyone.
A couple of things though:
- I am here to make friends as much as anything so I won't assume anything if you do message me.
- Generally I prefer to know people for a little while online before meeting in reality.
