I'm an English/Australian living in Melbourne, Australia.
I love games (!!!), music, gigs, film, fucking, fucking on film, singin' and dancin', wasabi peas, Jack Daniels and sleep. Don't mind a bit of the old ultra-violence either.
My film tastes include Blade Runner, Tarantino flicks, Sin City, The Shining, Lord of the Rings, Die Hard With A Vengance, Bond flicks, etc.
My music tastes include alternative/indie/rock bands such as Faith No More and Kaiser Chiefs, through to metal acts such as Fear Factory, Opeth, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Devildriver and Lamb of God.
I also sing in a cover band, and enjoy headbanging to Avril Lavigne and Michelle Branch. I have no shame.
I can speak and write Japanese, but have lost most of my ability to do so out of fear of becoming a Weeaboo.
Additionally, I would love to say that I am alcoholic, but I am not that cool.
Looking forward to:
