basically i'm on this thing because the people i know here are mostly limited to my school within the university. (maybe i should've lived with flatmates to broaden my social circle.. but living sans flatmates has its good points.) ideally i'd want someone to have little travel adventures with, who doesn't mind going to the pub and doesn't roll their eyes at the shows i watch and tolerates the music i'm into, and is female. and thinks i'm funny and/or handsome.
* under "personality", okcupid has decided i am more below the mean in Politeness than any other subject. make of that what you will
i *used to* enjoy running quite a lot, and edinburgh has the perfect running weather, which is why it's so depressing that my tendons & joints seem to be failing me. but life goes on.
darkplace (ever see it? it's fantastic). and i tend like absurdist animated comedy (if done right) such as squidbillies and rick and morty...
movies: some classic favorites are dune, oldboy, se7en, wet hot american summer, grosse pointe blank
music: though i don't look it, i looove metal. or maybe i should say post-metal. mostly i like doom (electric wizard, yob, high on fire, witch mountain, pelicans, swans, melvins... this list of bands you've never heard of goes on and on!), drone and ambient. but i'll throw a goat (in my head) when i hear emperor. at least the gigs are cheap and don't sell out. i've been to a few gigs at bannermans but usually i have to go to glasgow. eh.. i like other stuff too.
books: haven't been up on my reading lately. some favorites are the dune series; anything by philip roth; cloud atlas; super sad true love story. i also like nonfiction, esp the guns germs and steel-type books. i feel like i learn something.
food: crisps & chips.
