I enjoy music a lot. I'm pretty sure I'd go nuts if I went deaf. I go to a lot of gigs when I have the time and money, which is sadly not as often these days.
I am a massive geek (as if you couldn't tell from the glasses...) and I get a lot out of doing stuff like playing board and video games.
I also enjoy sports. I'm a football fan and from the red side of Liverpool. I'll watch most sports besides golf and cricket.
In 2010/11 I spent 6 months travelling around Europe. It was without a doubt the best experience of my life, and I would love to do something similar again.
In my spare time I do a lot of writing, both fiction and for websites/blogs. I recently started my own site in order to collect all of my writing together and to give me somewhere to put all of my dumb opinions.
I occasionally get treated like a genuine member of the press by PR agencies and this is clearly a sign that we're all living in the Matrix.
Writing, I hope, or else boy am I barking up the wrong tree...
I'm handy in a pub quiz, thanks to my brain's ability to collect otherwise useless information like a sponge.
If you show me a flag there's a 95% chance I can tell you what country it belongs to. I'm a useful boy to have around for all your flag related needs, which I can tell are many!
Either that or my distinctly non-Scouse, non-Welsh, BBC English accent. I can affect either on request, though.
The Discworld series are all excellent. I have also been consuming the works of Philip K Dick at about the rate he consumed mind altering substances, which was quite quickly.
I enjoy films, but generally prefer to watch/marathon cartoons and TV shows. Favourites include the West Wing (best show ever), Archer, Bob's Burgers, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, Monty Python, the Day Today and a bunch of others. I'm currently ploughing through King of the Hill, Adventure Time and Game of Thrones, and I'm begrudgingly giving HIMYM it's ninth season because hey, I came this far.
It's a big cliche but I'll listen to pretty much anything. My all time favourite band is Brand New, but recently I've been listening to a bunch of La Dispute, Arcane Roots, Reuben, Alexisonfire and a load of other post hardcore.
As for food, I've made it my quest to try every 5* rated burger on the Burgerac London Burger App, so if you want to come on an artery-clogging adventure I'm your guy I guess.
2. My friends; similarly cheesy but they are badical.
3. The Internet; where else can I see videos of pugs stuck in a toilet and manatees bumping in to glass with hilarious sound effects? Because seriously if you know somewhere then tell me.
4. Books; reading is a big part of my life. I always have a couple of books on the go and usually about 8 piled up behind them waiting to be read.
5. Music; I love music. It makes me do all the emotions. Often at once, which can be messy.
6. US Netflix; my eyes have been opened and I'll never go back to the way it was before and if you try and make me I'll scream and scream until I'm sick.
There used to be a video on YouTube of me dressed in a tweed suit, chasing a turkey (unsuccessfully) round a field in Staffordshire. I swear it was a promotional video for a local pub, honest guv.
I have an addiction to Dairylea. It's under control though, and I could stop any time I want...
I would love feedback on which one of these three is the most embarrassing.
You weren't put off by my deliberate and egregious use of the word 'badical'.
And, of course, if you want to/think we would get on!
