About me

Gender MALE
Industry Arts
Location United Kingdom
Interests Film and Tv, music particularly 60s soul and what has been termed jingly jangly music. I love The Smiths and the lovely stylings of Johnny Marr. And Halfman Half Biscuit contains the greatest poetry in the english language. Rugby football baseball almost any team sport really, Tho basketball is a mystery to me.
Favorite Movies Hugely difficult to say. So many great movies and it depends on mood. I mean, I love Woody Allen, Bergman, Godard and the french new wave but I also adore Jackie Chan stuff like Armour of God, Marx Brothers, Bringing Up Baby, Gladiator, Oh! Mr. Porter, Heat, Immortal Beloved, Touch of Evil, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, M, La Regle de Jeu, Desperately Seeking Susan.... I could go on forever. Misspent youth in the dark you see.
Favorite Music Smiths, Hmhb, Psb, New Order, Depeche Mode, The Clash, Arthur Alexander, Barbara Lewis, The Chiffons, Smokey Robinson, The Contours, Oasis, Radiohead, Pulp, Manic Street Preachers, Stereophonics, and anawful lot of classical. From Mozart thru to Gorecki and Penderecki. Tho I don't get either Baroque or Serialist music. It sounds like it's written purely for the brain to me and I believe art should communicate emotionally to have impact. So there!
Favorite Books The ragged trousered philanthropists, Crime and Punishment, Lush, 100 years of Solitude
