My self-summary
Hello. I'm Josh, and I'm going to try to sell myself to you.

Friends and colleagues alike tell me I'm not a very nice person. Personally, I think I'm alright most of the time. Past the insults and general horribleness, anyway.

I'm not that bad, really.
What I’m doing with my life
I've moped around working in shops in a train station for the past 7 years now. Aside from that my life is spent on Netflix and YouTube. That pretty much sums it up.
I’m really good at
I can ring an item through a till for you with at least a certain degree of accuracy, if that's what you're in to.

Falling asleep pretty quickly is also a specialty of mine. Which is kind of more a hindrance than a skill, really. Well, depending on the situation, anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me
I was known as "Josh with the glasses" by a friend I used to work with, before they really knew me. "Cool" and "Mysterious" I think were the words used when describing me initially. Apparently I was a disappointment when they actually got to know me though, so that's nice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This section consists of about the only things that I get enthusiastic about.

I like movies. I go to the cinema at least once a week usually, yet I've never bothered signing up for that Unlimited thing. I've also kept a log of practically every movie and TV show that I've ever watched, for no apparent reason.

Movies I like include Vanilla Sky, The Fountain, The Science of Sleep, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Her, Ghost World, Akira, Blade Runner, Interstellar, Ghost in the Shell. So near future sci fi and sad movies, basically.

TV shows are more of a flavour of the week thing with me, because I get through them so fast. Currently watching Deadwood, Black Mirror, Westworld, Rick and Morty, Twelve Monkeys, The Crown, Star Wars Rebels and a few anime shows. Recently finished Mad Men, and need to get back in to Gilmore Girls before the new season starts.

Music includes Sigur Rós, M83, Wild Nothing, Cliff Martinez, Cocteau Twins, Placebo, Joanna Newsom, Alexisonfire, The Smiths.

I haven't read many books, but I'm trying to change that. I keep collecting more and more before I've finished or started the ones I already have, however. Currently reading A Storm of Swords, Slaughterhouse-Five, and Titus Groan. The rest of my pile consists mainly of sci fi and fantasy taken from my Dad's vast library. Recommendations are welcome.

I also play video games. Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo. Anything, really. As with all of my other interests in this section I have a huge blacklog, and am perhaps unwisely juggling multiple things at once. Currently attempting to get through Tokyo Mirage Sessions, Deus Ex, the Resident Evil series, and many others.

I don't eat a lot of food. Mainly just Coco Pops.
The six things I could never do without
Distractions from real life x6.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I used to think about the day and the date and the time of things. Now my head is mostly empty.
On a typical Friday night I am
I usually work Friday nights, week in, week out. It gives me a valid reason to avoid social interactions with friends though, so that's good.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not an especially private person. There's just not a lot to me.
You should message me if
If you've read this far and taken my profile in at least slight jest. If you want to accompany me to the cinema. Or maybe you want to help me play scary video games, because I can't deal with them on my own.

Keep in mind that I am cripplingly socially inept, so me ever messaging you first might be a long shot. But if you think we might get along, give it a go, because I probably won't.
