Ok bored now. I like most music, its in my blood, these are just some of my favourites.
- Favourite Films
- Lord of the rings tril (god how pedestrian, but true!), My Fair Lady (most musicals really), All the Kubricks "Viddy well", Withnail&I "Monty you terrible c**t!", Grease, Sean of the dead, The Goonies "heeey yooou guuuuys", all the Potters (yes I know the early ones are abit rubbish but lets remember who the target audience is shall we? Goblet Of Fire onwards=bloody fantastic!) Hocus Pocus, Little Miss Sunshine, Star Wars (do not speak of ep.1 to me tho), Ghostbusters, Signs, all the St. Trinians(old ones), all the Pythons ...loads more.
A movie has to be pretty crap for me not to find something good about it. Much money has been spent at blockbuster over the years.
- Favourite TV Shows
- **THE MIGHTY BOOSH**, League Of Gentlemen.
Simon Munnery (tho he is all about the live performances these days), Snuffbox ("Whiskey!"), Nathan Barley ("Shut up, fat arms"), Spaced ("Awwww.....pickle!"), The IT Crowd ("You have a beautifully shaped skull..."), Green Wing, Firefly, Brasseye, Jam, Spooks, Lost, Weeds, Battlestar Galactica, My Name Is Earl, Black books("None of that!"), anything with The Actor Kevin Eldon in, Gonzo, Medium, Teachers, Vic and Bob, Scrubs, documentaries on anything, BLOOMBERG UK (fnar fnar).
I spend about 60% of my waking hours watching tv...luckily I am being paid for it most of the time.
- Favourite Books
- Yes, I read too - dont just watch telly all day.
I usually just pick up whatever jumps out at me in the library (Northern thrift) but there are a few people I make a point of reading everything they do:
Tolkien, Douglas Adams, JK Rowling, Douglas Coupland (man is a GENIUS), Spike Milligan (ditto...well...was. Especially his wartime autobiographies).
Am currently enjoying working my way through all the penguin classics in the Barbican library. Amazingly Robinson Crusoe was great!
- Muse Releases Owned
- Pretty much all of them tho have a few holes here and there.
Finally got the elusive EP1 last year. There were tears of joy in my eyes when i was signing for the package!
