I'm 23 living in Australia. Been on LJ for many years now (though on and off with various usernames) and thought it would be good to meet a few new people.
I enjoy a good bottle of wine and lately I've become a bit obsessed with making tapas. I'm a bit unsure of what I want to do with my life. So in lieu of that my next goal is to travel from Singapore to London by train. Planning to do that in 2011.
I'd say I'm a bit obsessed with music in a High Fidelity kind of way. I'd say my top five songs of all time are Teenage Riot by Sonic Youth, A Change Is Gonna Come by Sam Cooke, White Lines by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Loose by the Stooges and Purple Sneakers by You Am I. I'm big on seeing live music. I think I realised that so far I've been to over 100 concerts in my lifetime. The best show I had ever been to was Lou Reed performing Berlin until I saw the Arcade Fire.
I don't watch much TV but lately I've been getting into The Wire. Other shows I enjoy are West Wing, the IT Crowd and classics like Black Books, the Muppet Show and the Young Ones.
I'm generally a fan of movies by Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, the Coen Bros and Wes Anderson. I'd also rank Donnie Darko, Lost in Translation and High Fidelity amongst my favourites. I'd say my least favourite film would be Castaway, mainly because it wasn't so bad that it was funny like the Rocky and Bullwinkle movie.
I'm an actively political person. My belief is that all political awakenings comes from a personal experience. I identify as someone on the left but enjoy debating with people of different persuasions (so long as they're not ranty). Nothing shits me more than people sitting around agreeing with each other.
Feel free to add me.
