Also, Cranberry & Blood Orange tea is my new jam, apart from where it's a tea not a jam. And! Apparently it's a tisane, not a tea. The things you learn, eh?
List of people I'd be happy to be stuck in an elevator with, because Lists Are Fun: Burial, Stewart Lee, Christopher Hitchens, Bill Hicks, Liz Lemon, Park Wook Chan, Will Ferrell, Charlie Brooker, Adam & Joe, Maddox, Garth Algar...
Recently acquired a gym addiction, and got back in to a daily photography project right around here but WARNING don't look if you're already a bit bored or it might tip you over the edge and actually bore you to death.
On the 9-5 I'm a programmer who builds websites and mobile apps, and that. I'm at a sports-based social media startup and it's pretty fantastic. Nowt like enjoying where you work!
Also been experimenting with "What happens if I don't get a TV service?" for a few months - so far, not missing it!
I'm also official world champion at making a chicken sandwich, apply within for a free sample!
For some reason people seem to think I'm good at making cups of tea, but I've no idea why.
I've been told I look like Usher.
Flicks - DVD collection highlights: 28 Weeks Later for the amazing opening sequence and general feel; Angel-A for kooky French b&w-ness; Anchorman because <3 Will Ferrell; Layer Cake for its effortless cool post-Lock-Stock-ness (rather pretentious-feeling reason, but can't figure a better way of expressing it); Léon because the ending upsets me ;_; Spirited Away because it's actually magic; Pan's Labyrinth because it combines the last two amazingly well.
TVs - The Wire, Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Thick Of It, South Park, 30 Rock. "No TV service" experiment ongoing so watching very little right now.
Sounds - Recently just been going to SoundCloud, searching for deep house mixes and pressing play - works well most of the time. Some names: Deptford Goth, Crim3s, Chvches, The XX, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ben UFO, James Zabiela, Finnebassen, Jacques Greene, DJ Shadow, and Burial.
Eats - Love a bit of Indian stuff, big fan of medium rare steaks when quality enough and done properly, and salmon are pretty cool guys. Byron burgers and Leon are my favourite London things right now.
Dranks - I'll take a nice smooth bitter over a gassy lager most days, and the more obtuse the ingredients in a cocktail the better. Also: coffee, and a lot of it.
A free and open internet
Decent coffee (formerly from Small Batch in Brighton, now seeking London replacement)
98-octane petrol (my car's a fussy drinker)
When next I can be hurtling down a mountain on a couple of planks and/or cruising around a few French cities on a road trip.
And when "fashion" will finally stop thinking skinny jeans are a strong look. I just want some width in the leg ._.
Also, I hate socks.
