My self-summary
Mmm, i think i just found my favourite band shirt? is that an ok way to start this off? its probably going to prevent me from access to all of sydneys wankiest and most expensive bars, so mission accomplished there.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a primary school teacher, which absolutely sidelines some people. Its fun, the lifestyles great, and I love my school.
I try to go spearfishing every weekend; something about eating fresh fish thats caught yourself keeps me going into cold winter water.
i very very often discover new artists and its all i rave about for the week. caspar david friedrich was the latest; my inability to shutup about him tested the limits of a friendship of at least three people. i try to emulate some of their style into whatever im working on. constant evolution i guess
if im walking home late at night, and its a balmy spring/summer evening, theres every chance i'll lie back in a large oval and stargaze.
I’m really good at
art, actually. really good with my hands.
twister. ive won a competition.
i rule at jenga
calming down drunk people
And im patient. To a point.
The first things people usually notice about me
i think i seem a little aloof, but i smile a lot. keeps people on their toes. i dont normally let someone know i like them straight away, i guess it just down to me being wary about what i say.
and my horrible manners, says OKC
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I know I laying a lot down here, it's hard to narrow down

george carlin. funniest and grumpiest guy ever. i could listen to him all day.

i love it all. hp lovecraft, its 90 years old and quite weird.storm of steel, a scanner darkly, book of the new sun, freakonomics, the lion the witch and the wardrobe, the black cauldron, 1984, the forever war, fear and loathing on the campaign trails (another hunter book), the dice man, stalingrad and berlin, slaughterhouse five, cats cradle, welcome to the monkey house, american gods (for the 3rd time in as many years), dangerous visions..

as for movies, all of it...fear and loathing, the princess bride, aliens, distrist 9, tarentino stuff, dark crystal, anchorman, the shining, evil dead, heavy metal, the hurt locker, king of kong....if youve got a soft spot for bad 80's movies we'll have something to chat about
tv...curb your enthusiasm, south park, american dad, QI..anything with louis theroux or david attenborough
does anyone remember watching the maxx on sbs about 15 years ago? no? fine

music...theres way too much to list here, but thee oh scees, neil young, sonic youth and their side projects, my bloody valentine, dinosaur jr, modest mouse, kurt vile, lotus plaza, the cramps, evan dando, hendrix, mudhoney, this one song by M83 that sounds like a combination of a boxing match, heartbreak, and F1 cars flying at breakneck speeds, a pretty good start...
and coachwhips! holy hell, thats some primal, messy rock and roll

christoph waltz cant put a foot wrong either.
Six things I could never do without
a pencil
my quincy quigg designed snowboard (i wanna explain more, but its impossible. its beautiful and chaotic and malign simultaneously)
my computer
my grey winter cardigan
I spend a lot of time thinking about
grungy art, spaced out music, new unseen vistas, berlin, chicago, the weekend, escaping sydney, whether to grow my beard or shave it off

im trying to acquire an original piece of bill ogden art. if you have one above your kitchen table, we'll get married tomorrow.
On a typical Friday night I am
drinking at the pub, maybe slothing it on the couch with a good book and a bottle, wallowing in my own crapulence, whittling ( my time away, not pieces of wood), optimistically thinking im running the next morning
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i dig tom cruise in just about anything he's in
You should message me if
you're as blunt with me as i'l be to you. and kinda crazy too. if you have a passion for music that sounds a little dirty to most, or youve got your head buried constantly in a book.
or you just like hanging out and drinking in the sun
The two of us
