About me

Gender Male
Location Darktown
Introduction G'day! What's there to tell? I wear a paper bag over my head forchrissakes! I grew up on punk rock (US hardcore, not UK '77 style mind you), 80s thrash metal and splatter flicks. I spent the late 80s in London & most of the 90s partly in Melbourne. I'm 10% Aussie and 90% Danish! These days I fester on a steady diet of psychotronic cinema. I publish (very randomly) a zine, hang out at cool forums + have video nights with fellow film freaks. I collect films, records, comics + old crime books. I don't smoke. I don't do drugs (I kinda don't like fucking up my life and besides I like to remain in a fair amount of control). I suffer from bad migraines (since I was five) which I get pills for, my pulse is too high (more pills), I have B12 deficiency (bimonthly injections) and back pains from a traffic accident (which I just endure). However, "I can go for hours if you know what I mean". I drink moderately (has to do with the migraines; I never experience normal hangovers, they always turn into three day headaches, and who needs that). I live in a house like the one in The Addams Family. That's it. If there's more you wanna know, ask me.
