Mancunian (Boothstown and Whitefield) stranded in the East Midlands.
Inventor of the left handed immersion heater, and the rotating stuffed goat (every home should have one!).
Tall, dark, athletic, and erudite, but also impulsive, impatient, and increasingly intolerant.
I have a preference for the Oxford Comma, classic white trainers (I realise this may be a slight oxymoron to some), Kalamata Olives, and a nice pair, or more, of Loake brogues.
I am very hostile to all New Age Bowlocks, conspiracy theories, pseudoscience, and any similar drivel. Crystals do not heal anything; dream catchers catch only cobwebs and dust, and nothing else; and a bunion on your toe has more influence on your personality than a 'star sign'. I thang ewe!
Ex-First Generation raver: regular at the Hacienda, from the mid-eighties to the early nineties, and numerous motorway service stations, waiting for 'the word', and Ibiza
I have very varied tastes in music, including: Joy Division, LCD Soundsystem, The Bee Gees, Ministry of Sound, most dance, especially Trance, Bob Dylan, Yello, Bon Iver, Pink Floyd, The Kinks, Lana del Rey, Jake Bug, Sigur Ros, The Art of Noise, Paul Weller and The Jam, Simon and Garfunkel, Sandy Denny, Nick Drake, New Order, The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Metallica, The Screaming Trees, The Smiths, Bruce Springsteen, Hard-Fi, Elbow, The Fleet Foxes, Lorde, Neil Diamond, Beethoven, Isobel Campbell, and many many more… Bob Dylan is a deity.
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.

Anything Else We Should Know
Religion is the most ridiculous and evil of human constructs.
We are all stardust.
