|Paper-cutting of David Bowie as Aladdin Sane. This is one of what I eventually intend to be a series.|
So, about me. Well I suck at this, so I'll just make a list. I'll try to be interesting, but I can't make any promises.
Music is a big part of my life. My favourite bands/artists (in no particular order) are David Bowie, The Beatles, Arcade Fire, and Lana Del Rey.
I also love Elbow, Muse, Pink Floyd, Blondie, ELO, Pulp, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Mumford and Sons, The Rolling Stones, Duran Duran, Simon and Garfunkel, The Cure, Dire Straits, Fleetwood Mac, MGMT, Led Zepplin, Radiohead, Queen, and The Who, and enjoy some Alice Cooper, ABBA, Bee Gees, Billy Joel, Dido, Guns 'n' Roses, Eurythmics, The Horrors, Meatloaf, Mott the Hoople, The Wombats, Panic at the Disco, Manic Street Preachers, People in Planes, and My Morning Jacket. I'm fairly likely to appreciate anything from the 60s, 70s, or 80s, and I really love jazz and swing but I'm not knowledgeable enough about them to say that I like any particular artists. I also love movie soundtracks, and I enjoy orchestral and classical music of other sorts, but as with jazz I don't know that I have particular favourite composers.
Fan of: Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Pokemon, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, Steampunk, Japanese cooking - especially bento, literature, eating.
Favourite actors: David Tennant, Alan Rickman, Tilda Swinton, Johnny Depp, Lee Pace, Emma Thompson. Lots of others are also amazing, and I don't want to leave them out, but this list has to end somewhere. It can't be as long and ridiculous as the list of music that I like.
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
Favourite fruit pastille (it's important): the black ones
I take my coffee: with milk and sugar, and preferably some sort of delicious additional flavour if I'm at a cafe.
I'm a vegetarian, but I'm not afraid to admit that I think meat is delicious, and I miss it, but I don't eat it for ethical reasons.
My favourite foods are probably pizza, macaroni cheese, lasagne (with soya mince, obviously), warm cookies, and ice-cream. I love spicy foods, and most foods that are bad for me, and I very much dislike vegetables - I'm OK with most cooked ones, even like some of them, but I cannot eat a salad.
Favourite holiday: Christmas, don't know why anyone would choose a different one.
I like to stay pale.
I will take any excuse to wear a costume.
I'm a student at the University of Oxford.
I'm a chronic procrastinator. This is problematic in combination with the previous point.
I would love to travel, especially in the East - particularly Japan - and in the US. I have a fantasy of a sort of month-long road trip all over the US. Preferably in a vintage red convertible. And ideally I could travel through time as well. Yeah.
I'm a singer.
I'm an atheist.
If I could have a super power, it would be shape-shifting.
I have Tumblr. It's here: leatherboundgalaxies.tumblr.co…
