About me

Gender Male
Occupation Retired
Location Hull, United Kingdom
Introduction "Grandad's swearing at the telly..." (Alan Klein, "What a Crazy World.") Old, tired and somewhat disillusioned, but trying to keep up standards. Aware that capitalism cannot be reformed, but despairing of its dissolution in the near future, I use whatever means are available to me to avoid capitulation. I join forces with other resisters in the Industrial Workers of the World.
Favorite Movies Seven Samurai, Sunset Boulevard, The Battle of Algiers, I Soliti Ignoti, The Big Lebowski.
Favorite Music Jazz 1945-1965 (approx.), Blues, some Country (Hank Williams/Waylon Jennings/Don Gibson), good guitarists like Luiz Bonfá/Davy Graham/Bert Jansch/John Renbourn, J.S.Bach, Ani DiFranco, Steely Dan, Manu Chao, Cassandra Wilson, Kad Achouri.
Favorite Books Diary of a Nobody (G.& W. Grossmith), The Adventures of the Good Soldier Švejk (J.Hašek), Manuscript Found at Saragossa (J.Potocki).
