My current favourite joke: I bought a new thesaurus the other day, it's terrible. Not only that, but it's also terrible.
If the question is "what am I doing with my life this very second", then I'm currently regretting how many nachos I ate. Not as impressive but I think it shows an interest in international cuisine.
I'm not particularly sporty but I like to keep active. Climbing trees or caving or what have you. Or really long walks. I try to go on a very long walk (12+ miles) at least once a month, to the point I almost get lost. Y'know, just to keep me on my toes.
I have a beard! Well, I guess that could be quite Hobbity too. Gah.
Can't go wrong with Haruki Murakami. Big fan of James Joyce, Yukio Mishima, Georges Perec and Franz Kafka too. The last book I read was Silence by Shusaku Endo, which I enjoyed. Scorsese's adapting it! Should be interesting.
Now, I love me some films so only listing a few here is kinda hurting me a bit. However if you also like films, there's a great chance we'll have lots to talk about when we meet.
I love films that induce extremes of emotions - hilarity, fear, disgust. Stalker, Blue Velvet, Alien, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Best In Show and Pink Flamingos are all films I get a lot of enjoyment from.
I don't really watch TV all that much and some of my favourite shows have already finished (i.e. Twin Peaks, Breaking Bad, The Thick of It). The only shows I follow that are still on are all comedies - It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia is my favourite right now.
Like with films, if it's wild and ballsy then I probably like it. I like distinctive vocalists like Björk, Tom Waits and David Bowie, and I also like innovative electronic production like Boards Of Canada, Actress and Burial. And then there are people that tick both boxes, like James Blake and Scott Walker.
I'm open to a lot of things though. Noisecore, breakbeat, laïkó, mbaqanga... you name it, let's get down to it.
Yes, yes I like food.
