What I like
I like Paul Beattie's photography - people and places, people in places. Paul is an erudite blogger and tweeter (@paul_beattie). Check him out.
Musically - well, Buzzcocks of course but for the past while my heart has belonged to Thea Gilmore.
I like cities, particularly Berlin. There's a buzz there I wish I could capture in a bottle - be good to have a little sniff now and then.
I used to read fashionable contemporary literature to try to be edgy and hip. These days I like biographies, particularly of 17th and 18th century figures.
I follow Newcastle United and Oxford United Football Clubs, Vodaphone McLaren Mercedes F1 team.
I like Mercedes-Benz cars and Cross fountain pens.
