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. That hurts. 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 6 years now. I also attempted to be a bartender once. 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 into. I almost definitely don't know what cocktail you're asking me for though.

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 her words when describing me, but they might just be mine. 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.

My Netflix queue is probably like 100 movies and TV shows deep by now. It's kind of overwhelming.

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 that I've ever watched, for no apparent reason. Favourites include Vanilla Sky, The Fountain, The Science of Sleep, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Her, and Ghost World.

TV shows are more of a flavour of the week thing with me, because I get through them so fast. I love me some shows that I think are probably aimed just for teenage girls. I also watch anime, and I have a thing for cheesy Korean dramas. I can relate with Mordecai from Regular Show. This video is about the most accurate depiction of my life that I've ever seen. http://youtu.be/KmFa7ol9HjE

I'll add video games in to here as well. Despite feeling like I don't have enough time to play them recently, because I'm so busy with doing absolutely nothing else, I'll still buy every single console released and any games that interest me in the slightest. This has left me with a lighter pocket and a lot less space in my bedroom.

When it comes to music, I tend to listen to one thing for a week or two at a time, and then alternate between them. Things listened to as of late include Sigur Rós, M83, Porter Robinson and Future Islands. Along with these, other stuff I'll always go back to are Wild Nothing, Cliff Martinez, Cocteau Twins, Placebo, Joanna Newsom, Alexisonfire and The Smiths.

I think my brain's not quite creative enough to imagine the worlds and scenarios that I'm reading in books sometimes. I can never think big enough, and I find I get far too distracted by things around me to keep my attention on the words on a page. I mostly just read comics and manga, probably because of this, which helps solve some of those problems. Sandman and Scott Pilgrim are at the top.

I don't eat a lot of food. Mainly just Coco Pops.
The six things I could never do without
Cereal. Milk. Earphones. The time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about the day and the date and the time of things.
On a typical Friday night I am
I usually work Friday nights, week in, week out, so that's what I'm typically doing. 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. Going on my own makes me feel like a goober sometimes. 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 actually 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.
