I'm an open minded young chap called Alex who likes to relax and chill out (without sounding too early 90s).
I have rather eclectic tastes in lots of things, particularly films, music, books. and video games I like learning about history and archaeology too (unfortunately you can't do a degree in playing video games (if you can please show this to me).
I'm quite a talkative person and loud person, but I like to think that I try to be conscientious when I first meet someone - I might seem very normal when you first meet, but the more I get to know someone the odder the things that come out of my mouth become. In a good way (if being dark and jokey and generally saying pretty grim things is good?)
I also love being able to nerd out about stuff with other people, and share in the geekdom - particularly with films, but I think I can hold up a conversation about most things, not matter how weird.
I like socialising and a good drink now and then, and I also follow a few sports, although I save any nerdiness about them for people willing to listen to anything eccentric and geeky about, say, The Wire, or a million other things.
I've also got a kind and understanding side, who will sit and listen and process. Sometimes I might even come up with a solution to whatever is bothering you!
All in all, I'm young and fun and I give AMAZING hugs (or glomps, if you like glomping)
I'm can play guitar (poorly) and bass (less poorly), so don't expect any serenading (unless you want your ears to bleed or you really, really like Superstition by Stevie Wonder)
Some of my more useless talents involve playing video games, partlicularly games from 10 years ago that no one cares about any more (Crash Bandicoot, if I could I would marry you). I also have a pretty encyclopedic knowledge of some TV series (such as South Park, which I have quoted randomly and excessively around friends to the point that they don't like watching it any more), and also Game of Thrones (I've read the books too)
Yes I know I'm a lazy nerd, but that brings me onto my biggest talent - lazing around and chilling out. Particularly with other people.
I'm also quite good at not being able to drink milk :(
And also maybe being a little too blunt!
Game of Thrones (and the books)
This is England
ANY TARANTINO FILM EVER
The Hurt Locker
Rick and Morty
House of Cards
Orange is the New Black
Lord of the Rings
Harry Potter (the books, can't stand the films I just want to face fist Daniel Radcliffe, the short jammy twat)
Archer (danger zone?)
As to music, I think Rumours by Fleetwood Mac is my favourite album, which is a bit of cheesy choice but fuck it, it's good. I love Blood Mountain by Mastodon and Led Zeppelin by, err, Led Zeppelin. Also Random Access Memories by Daft Punk, not sure if that's me just going on with the hype or whether I genuinely like it (I like all of Daft Punk's album mind - time will tell). Musically I'm quite into Rammstein at the moment, but I like bands like:
Alice in Chains
The Beatles (duh)
Less than Jake
Reel Big Fish
Also the Juno film soundtrack
The Black Keys
Wow my tastes are way more alternative than I thought they were. I will dance to club stuff mind, just need copious amounts of alcohol in me.
Also, I spend free time on Steam. I play lots of games, but primarily L4D2 and other similar source games and Total War games, but i dabble in League of Legends too. If anyone wants a game I'm happy to oblige.
Contrary to the lazy things that I largely like to do, I also like leaving the house and doing things like everyone else! I like fine dining (look at my tummy, for goodness' sake!), long walks in the country side, going to gigs (particularly rock and metal, but I like electronic, jazz, blues, lots of stuff), and also a good night out (although I prefer the drinking part where you might be able to sit down and hold a conversation at a tolerable volume, as opposed to having to pay to get in or put your coat anywhere, overpriced drinks and watching skinnier younger prettier than you have a funner time than you're having).
But seriously - it's very useful I use it to write and stuff :(
Well I assume answering stuff like 'water' and 'food' goes without saying, but I honestly don't think I need six things constantly in my life.
Yes my computer with access to the internet is very nice but I think I could live without it.
My bass guitar, again is very sexy when clean but when the strings need changing and there's dust between the pickups and the strings and you can't reach it because you have sausage fingers well then I just want to put the damn thing down :(.
I suppose I'm going to fuck the police and chose one thing that I want and that's access to music - often if I'm thinking something through or my emotions are running high, I find music either helps deal with or contextualise my problems - so it makes me feel much better!
However I know that I need access to the internet for that so I suppose that I'd have to include that too - and with all the perks that comes with ^_^
So I often think about, well, stories - whether I've found them in films, or books, or video games, and my mind often wonders onto something i've experienced - fictitious or not - and it can mash the two together.
So this often ends up with me making my own plots in my head but with influences from different places. I've got like 15 stories in my head at the moment? But I haven't written much down (gotta love inertia)
I also think about normal stuff, like whether clouds of dragon people living in them and they use that as their primary mode of transport, and that they're polluting the world with oxygen, allowing us in turn to thrive, whilst also explaining why many cultures in history have had obsessions with dragons.
This needs to change.
I like going to the pub, cinema, for a meal, but I love going out to a gig and rocking it up and moshing if there is a chance :D.
But the alt scene is a bit shit in Hertfordshire from my experience.
Sometimes I just like to stay in and shoot the breeze, and think about how stars are actually unwanted teddy bears, and they're actually organising themselves in an assault on the earth, unilaterally and simultaneously to punish all the rotten children.
(I'm safe I still have all my teddy bears)
But what is even greater is my fear that these two will one day interbreed and combine to make the most frightening creature imaginable.
Huh I suppose that could be classified as something i'm willing to admit..
Or if you're looking for someone to have bizarre imaginative conversations with, who is also very loyal and understanding.
