I live in Poole, Dorset on the beautiful south coast of England. I love going for scenic walks and take far too many photographs.
My favourite U2 albums are Achtung Baby, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, Songs Of Innocence and Zooropa. My favourite song is Lemon.
I've been to twelve U2 shows since becoming a fan in June 1999:
I enjoy all kinds of rock, pop and dance music – mostly older stuff. Artists I like include Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, The Alan Parsons Project, Delays, Keane, Alanis Morissette, David Bowie, Billy Joel, Dire Straits, Crowded House, Del Amitri, The Lightning Seeds, The Beatles, The Moody Blues, Pet Shop Boys, Garbage, The Police, Kula Shaker, Single Gun Theory, The Waterboys, Duke Special, The Real Tuesday Weld... too many more to list!
My favourite authors are Salman Rushdie and J.R.R. Tolkien. My favourite books are U2 At The End Of The World by Bill Flanagan and I, Lucifer by Glen Duncan. Anything with a playful satanic flavour is right up my street... I always did find the bad guys to be the best characters.
I have been known to write songs, poetry and fanfic, though I do not claim to be any good
Current TV shows I watch: Neighbours, Doctor Who, Steven Universe, The Last Leg,
Long Lost Family, The Secret Life Of 4- & 5-Year-Olds, Pointless, Who Dares Wins, A
Question Of Sport, QI, Have I Got News For You, any wildlife / animal programmes (I
particularly love The Supervet), various sporting events.
My all-time favourite movies include Quills, The Matrix, Star Trek: Generations, Star Trek: The Voyage Home, Back To The Future, Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory, Watership Down, Flight Of The Navigator and The Lord Of The Rings (both the Ralph Bakshi and Peter Jackson versions). I like a variety of genres, but I'm much more likely to watch a sci-fi or action film than a chick flick.
My favourite things include sleeping, singing, Christmas, the colour purple, snow, the smell of seaweed, the soothing rhythm of a train, the feel of satin, quizzes, Haribo Starmix, parsnips, flat Cherry Coke, anything blueberry flavoured, profiteroles and butterscotch sundaes.
Some would say I have an odd sense of humour. Many would say I'm just odd...
More to come!
