Profile Information

I'm an occasional spare-time writer of allsorts, but mostly fairly angsty prose, etiher bashed violently on a keyboard or scribbled into one of my notebooks. I can never tell if my writing is any good or not, and that combined with my low productivity and tendancy to procrastinate doesn't help matters.

I am male, 18 years old and hopefully about to go off to university to study English. I'm a nocturnal person and I often spend a ridiculous amount of time on internet forums late at night, getting up at 'lunchtime' unless I have a class earlier. I feel a bit stifled by my insular town and I do try to experience different places and different people whenever I get the chance, though I don't really have many opportunities in that area at the moment because I'm tied to my college work right now. I'm an Atheist and a Socialist, although I sometimes find myself coming out with contrary and weird views on different things which don't correspond with my main allignment. I guess I can be a free thinker of sorts sometimes.

I am preoccupied with music, literatrure and cinema, and I consume all three all of the time. Musically, I adore The Velvet Underground, David Bowie, the better end of hip hop, lots of post-punk, Krautrock, dubstep and a few contemporary composers like Glass and Reich, as well as Satie and all sorts of things from various genres and various countries.

My current fixations are James Joyce in literature as well Krzystof Kieslowski and Ingmar Bergman films (incidentally, I don't think any of those three have influenced what I write because I could never hope to match the brilliance of any of them), but I try to read a wide variety of stuff and I'm interested in all sorts of films (though mainly European stuff because I resent the way Hollywood seems to value money over quality). I've also been reading into structuralism and poststructuralism a lot lately but I'm not sure if I really understand either.
