Before we begin, may I suggest that you read the rest of this profile with the voice of Morgan Freeman* in your head? Let's go!
I was sad because I had no shoes, until I met a DJ who had no beats. So I said... got any kicks you're not using?
...they said I should start with a joke! Suppose I only need (the right) one of you's to laugh anyway.
Otherwise it's a way of illustrating that music plays a big part in my life (both as a profession and a way to kill time) as well my disposition for a bangin' pair of shoes without having to say it out loud like I've just...
*individual results may vary.
> Tarantino. And I have seen all his films. Not just favourite because of his witty dialogue, trademark camera angles and non-linear storylines, but the WAY he uses music for the soundtrack. During my MA I produced a research essay on that very subject.
> The Mighty Boosh. B-b-because Noel Fielding!! My favourite moment was when he exclaims "tastes like a bounty!" upon eating a coconut for the first time.
> FUNK. James Brown, Parliment / Funkadelic, Commodores, Kool & the Gang, Larry Graham, h Earth Wind & Fire... that swing, that groove, it makes me wanna move!! When funk lost it's swing it became DISCO. And so: CHIC. There's a part of me that wishes I were Nile Rodgers.
> Tom Yum Soup. So much flavor. And it's HOT!!! Please see "Chilli" in the section below.
> Piano. Preferably in tune, with 88 working keys at my disposal. Though I don't mind the occasional honky tonk. Gives it a bit of character.
> Boots. Surely, you understand? But if not... I may as well bid you 'Good day,' at this point. Thanks for playing!
> Lobster. The king of crustaceans! In Cantonese we call it "Loong Haa," which translates to "Dragon Prawn". Go figure. A popular dish when dining out with the fam! With ginger and spring onions, always.
> Conditioner. Say goodbye to shampoo. You don't need it!
Or in the studio trying to figure out why the snare ain't sitting in the mix!!
