Now he clearly had a lot of issues but I think he got this right, put a ding in the universe or some such. The periods of my life where I've been happiest I've been doing things for other people; expedition to Belize in 98 and follow up work with training venturers for their trips. Non-proft work in Film & TV and most recently commissioning documentaries and shows for a pro-social digital network. If it all sounds a bit heavy then I'm probably not a perfect fit for you, but I find it great fun.
Changed my mind:
HT, obv On The Road
bios of crazy interesting people - Benjamin Franklin by Walter Thompson stands out
Irving Welsh, Martin Amis and Will Self are always reliable
Love classic movies and modern-day junk as well, one of the great surprises to me was how much I enjoyed White House Down - seriously good fun, considering...
Increasingly I think I have terrible taste in music, which probably is a problem considering I worked in music for almost 5 years in the UK.
I used to love incredibly rich food; I'd be the one ordering 3 courses of heart attacks. Since moving to LA I've taken a new lease on life and love Sushi, salads and anything that begins with an s. Though I still love pizza delivery, bbq, steak dinners and mac&cheese.
If you feel like you've been in LA for a while but haven't seen the best of it.
You can explain why superman destroyed New York city in Man of Steel - I thought he was supposed to save us all.
