With regards movies, I have a fairly alternative taste and enjoy foreign movies as well as the standard guy movie fare. Y Tu Mama Tambien, The Counterfeiters, City of God, The Lives of Others, Dead Man's Shoes, This is England, Enron, Wall-E, The Dark Knight, Ironman and Schindlers List are among my very favourites but I know I'm leaving some of my favourites out... oh yeah Superbad and Borat.
I really enjoy watching boxsets and have a few firm favourites. The Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Band of Brothers, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Louis CK, Luck, Boardwalk Empire, The Thick of It, Generation Kill, Parks and Recreation, The Office, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development, Peep Show and Grand Designs. Okay, more than a few and I'm a complete TV addict.
Tunes I listen to most on my iPod are Jay-z's Blueprint, Kings of Leon, The National, Bon Iver, Arcade Fire (No1 Fave Band), Ray LaMontagne, Fleetfoxes, Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley, M83 and Damien Rice.
Reading is my favourite way to spend me-time. Love everything by David Mitchell, Cormac McCarthy, Phillip Roth, Haruki Murakami, Donna Tartt and Ian McEwan. I would read anything from Jane Austen to Chuck Pahlaniuk. Hot tip: Read Netherland by Joseph O'Neill and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz. Two of the best contemporary novels I've ever read.

I want someone I can trust and someone who is kind and sees the best in others. I love sport and the outdoors so I'd like someone who keeps in good shape and shares my interest in these.
