Those who know, know.Age:
Wee shitehole in southern ScotlandRelationships:
2 terrible ones previously, currently living with my GF in London. All's good!Occupation:
Lighting technician for a lighting rental company. Hope to become a freelancer within the next couple years and get my ass on tour.Current goal(s):
At some point when I have expendable income, I want to start experimenting with 3D printing and VR. Current events are showing me that you can't really do any form of training wrt. manual labour when working from home, but you could learn how to repair and inspect things in VR. Problem is, just like with mapping, I'll furiously focus on a project for a day max, then struggle to find any motivation to continue on with it and procrastinate... think I'll need to look at that at some point. Not now, maybe sometime tomorrow. At some point many, many years down the line, I may want to revisit my university degree. Politics:
Left wing, but not to an obscene degree. Disagree with identity politics, something that seems to be becoming more and more prevalent. Pro Scottish Independence, but similarly to Archie, not because of nationalism.Religion:
I'm atheist through and through, but completely respect and acknowledge how important religions are to culture and society. No time for those that use it to justify hatred or cause harm onto others, though.
I'm pretty much a human dustbin, I'll eat anything. A good burger, chilli or spag bol will go down a treat. Hot drink:
Can't beat an English breakfast tea. A flat white or black coffee will also go down a treat.Cold drink:
Passionfruit Rubicon. Get in me. Snacks:
Insane sweet tooth. Tiramisu, a good chocolate fondant, cake, anything with "Ben & Jerry's" on it... Movies:
Anything that is tongue in cheek, self aware or incredibly atmospheric and immersive. Loved Blade Runner 2049 and Joker, but really have a soft spot for Robocop 1 & 2, Dredd, The Matrix and the likes of Evil Dead / Army of Darkness. I struggle to watch the same movie twice within the space of a few years.Videogames:
Used to be really into FPS games, but have found myself playing a load of sandbox games, like Stormworks, Factorio and Cities: Skylines. I love Metroid but haven't played it in ages, still waiting for Prime 4...Music:
Listening to a lot of video game soundtracks and the likes The Prodigy / Pendulum when I was younger made me listen to dance music and electronic music a lot more than contemporary and traditional styles, save for a few artists. Listening to a lot of deep Detroit house & techno ATM.Other:
I sing, a bit pitchy.
Aniseed, (most) fish & fennel can get tae. And miso, anything that tastes like I've just swallowed seawater is nothing short of torture.Hot drink:
Anything sugary. Don't know why, but stuff like sweet tea, lemsip etc. makes me gag.Cold drink:
Tomato juice. No.Snacks:
Anything with coconut. The creator of Bounty is a sociopath.Movies:
Generic schlock, horror, and films that give away their entire story in the trailer. Really can't handle films that are just jumpscares.Videogames:
MOBAs, card games and schlock.Music:
Modern trap / rap, and any modern song that samples an entire riff of chorus from another with little to no alteration
. Will.I.Am is really guilty of this, it just screams a combination of lack of talent and relying on people's memories of older songs to boost it's popularity. Sampling is such an incredible thing when done correctly, but copy & pasting entire segments of songs is cheap. Again, not massively fussed about contemporary music.Other:
People calling espresso 'expresso'. Winds me up something stupid.
