About Me


Live and learn


Well, I'm 35 years old. I love sport, reading, messing about on the net, good movies (now there's a discussion), and a multitude of other things. Everything/everyone? can be interesting, fun and worthwhile, depending on one's willingness to participate, have an an open mind etc etc

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted a few times, and couchsurfed once, and had a great time. It's a pretty cool system.


Sport - fencing, mountain biking, squash, swimming, tennis, most active sports. Not big on watching sports though - I'll have time to watch tv when I'm old one day, not now! Reading, lots of reading. People. Computers. Wine. And yes, I have an unfortunate penchant for PC games, especially rpg's (eg baldur's gate etc).

PS Update - have not been doing much sport lately...sigh.

Music, Movies, and Books

Rattling of a few movies:

101 Reykjavik
Remains of the day
The Big Lebowski (ofc)
Kung Fu Hustle
Everything by Almodovar
Everything by Aki Kaurismaki

Music, a little bit of everything, nothing too heavy/thrashy/clangy though. Bjork ofc, always, and numerous others, e.g. Ricky Lee Jones, Brenda Fassie, Chris Isaak, Lizz Wright, Stef Bos, Die Antwoord, Neil Diamond, John Lee Hooker, Angelo Debarre, FYC, Willie Nelson, The's, Ween, OMD, and more and more classical music. Yes, I know, I'm getting old ;-)

Books, I used to rip through all available sci-fi and fantasy, but recently whatever catches my fancy. I suppose the last few would have been (turning to see what's in the bookshelf behind me), Time Travellers Strictly Cash, Atomised, Flashman on the March, Piercing, A Dark and Hungry God Arises, the Larsson Trilogy, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, The Concert Ticket.
