My self-summary
Sites like these love for you to be succinct about yourself, so with that in mind, I would describe myself as "curious". Both in the sense that I like investigating stuff, and in the fact I am a peculiar person. Although this section is kinda redundant what with the extra sections below.

My current favourite joke: I bought a new thesaurus the other day, it's terrible. Not only that, but it's also terrible.
What I’m doing with my life
I chose a field that is not very lucrative, but I'm making headway and I'm hoping this is gonna be a good year (unlike the other years of course when I was like "good vibes? fuck *that* shit"). I make films and music videos, and occasionally I write.

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 really good at
Finding something to do. I've made a life-long commitment to never be bored and to always have some sort of project on the go. Sometimes it's a means of avoiding doing the thing I really should be doing, but usually there's a pay-off.

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.
The first things people usually notice about me
I get the feeling I'm meant to say something special and unique here but in reality it's just gonna be my appearance. I'm short and stocky, and I guess my head's sorta big? Jeez, I sound like I'm describing a Hobbit. Well, hopefully my pictures tell you otherwise.

I have a beard! Well, I guess that could be quite Hobbity too. Gah.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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.
Six things I could never do without
The five senses. And alcohol.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. I can't switch my brain off at night which is annoying. And that's not a brag, like "oh my god, I'm just so full of ideas all the time", because a lot of these thoughts are very banal and dumb, so it's more like "who directed The Graduate?" or "paprika's really underrated".
On a typical Friday night I am
Scouring eBay for fake Chinese jewellery.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not as Asian as the order of ethnicities above suggests.
You should message me if
You like to talk. Because I like to talk. So let's talk.
The two of us
