Yet another bio update. These things go out of date so quickly, or I'm getting old and beginning to understand why adults always complained about time moving too fast back when I was a nipper.

I'm currently working as a part-time cleaner to pay the bills, and more importantly buy more delicious vinyl records (for my favourite musical artists see here), whilst working at setting up my own business. I'm also a member of an experimental post-rock/electronica band Ghosts Wear Clothes which released an album, Threads, in the Spring of 2012.

Aside from anime, where my tastes range from cloyingly sentimental romances like Clannad to bleak, depressing arty shit like Monster, these are some of my favourite:

Books

Manufacturing Consent (N. Comsky and E. Herman), Beyond Chutzpah (N. Finkelstein), Gulag (A. Applebaum), A Song of Ice and Fire (GRR Martin), Lord of the Rings (JRR Tolkien), Frankenstein (Shelley), Harry Potter (JK Rowling) Testament of Youth (V. Brittain), Prince of Nothing (R.S. Bakker), Gentleman Bastards (S. Lynch), Gaunts Ghosts (D. Abnett), Mutual Aid: A Factor in Evolution (P. Kropotkin), My Disillusionment in Russia (E. Goldman), It (S. King)

Films

28 Days Later, A Very Long Engagement, Bladerunner, The Descent, Downfall, Four Lions, Gettysburg, Ladybird, Ladybird, Lord of the Rings, The Orphanage, Threads, Tokyo Sonata 

TV Shows

American Dad, Band of Brothers, Deadwood, Family Guy, Fringe, Futurama, Game of Thrones, Garrow's Law, House, Ideal, Misfits, QI, Ripper Street, Rome, Shameless, The Simpsons, The Walking Dead

I'd have to agree ^_^ Though, I haven't seen Death Note yet. It is on my saved list for sure. I noticed that you are watching Gantz :D How are you liking that anime? I rather enjoyed it, but it definitely was graphic. And.. Monster belongs in my top 5 as well... I am just not quite sure how to work it in there :p

I stumbled across your profile and realized you have a really cool Top 5. All 5 being things I've either seen and really enjoyed or things that I -really- want to see. I actually have all of Monster waiting patiently for me to watch it. I can't wait because I know it's going to be awesome! ;)
