I have a love affair with media, pop culture, politics and music. I like to think of ways they all align (and conversely, converge), and keep myself amused quite often playing that game when doing menial tasks.
I want to be a writer when i grow up.
I spent a fair amount of my life not really knowing what on earth I should be doing, nor how to go about doing any of it. These days I feel like im making up for lost time, but its a kind of anxiously fun experience.
I am radical, unreal, and ethereal
I host a trivia night that causes me no end of wonderful stress. I also continue to DJ in clubs around the way, as well as weddings so that i can play daggy music to well dressed drunks.
But most importantly, I try and share awesome experiences with those that I know. Get to know new people, sure, but cherish the friendships you get from the people you meet who you know are keepers.
I'm also really good at comprehending varied sets of data, especially when they are trivial.
And I'm excellent at wasting my time.
I do have a kind of distinctive giggle/bellow/i don't know what, and I really am laughing about something a fair bit of the time.
When it comes to food -- I was born in the year of the goat. I will eat anything. But I'm really really over Thai food. Its just not that good, nor is it warranted to have 70% of available eateries in my area be Thai food places. It just doesn't make sense. That said, the red duck curry from this one place in Glebe is *that dinner*.
Books and movies I also adore, but I've listed too much stuff already...
Just know that my favourite authors are (no order) -- Haruki Murakami, David Mitchell, Neal Stephenson and Terry Pratchett with smatterings of other ones in there too. I like a good book though :)
My two favourite movies are Adaptation and Empire Records with The Cabin In The Woods, Scott Pilgrim versus The World and Sling Blade rounding out a forever changing top 5. See, I like them all. I really do. I love daggy rom-coms, dark as hell arthouse comedies, stupid action movies, crappy teen movies... Im easy, but I guess the best thing is, I am really grateful on that day I turned up to the cinema in year 9 to see True Lies, some completely OTT James Cameron directed Arnie and Jamie Lee Curtis movie, and we had missed it, and so my friend suggested we go watch Fargo, a movie I had never heard of. And I laughed differently, but more satisfying to that movie than any previous incarnation of 'comedy' i had been offered.
I know I haven't listed a religion above, but ... lets just say I am a Whedonist. If you want to hang with me and go through Buffy and Angel and Firelfly, I don't care who you are, I will make time for that weekend/week/month to happen. I like lots of TV shows. I don't find Little Britain funny. Not big into trashy shows where they get a bunch of idiots to run around being vacuous on a beach either. Currently watching :: Boardwalk Empire, Six Feet Under for the first time, and Moone Boy.
a place to rest my weary head
access to good multicultural food
and my imagination
My thoughts arent always that trivial, but the tangents generally are. Its really a whole bunch of daggy fun inside my head most of the time, at least for me :)
Lately, it has been me doing some DJing work, and then tottling off into the night to play Ingress. I am really ok with this.
If you fancy a night a bar drinking, but don't want to be just drinking alone, instead just having a beer and a chat with a non creepy stranger.
If you want to organise a Buffyfest.
But really, you should just message me anyway, as I love seeing the little pink message icon thing light up!
