I hail from darkest Leicestershire!! Although I have now lived in both Worcester & Walsall for the last 7 years. I work in A&E; and now doing a BSc in Oxford (nursing, but never mind)
I am really into Art: the pre-raphaelites (esp Rossetti), Aesthetic movement,Baroque & Rococco n' German Symbolist paintings (franz von stuck etc..)
Literature: mostly English Modernist, (Forster, Greene, Woolf) some contemporary, but have really enjoyed French 20th cent: Genet, Gide, Rimbaud, verlaine, Mallarm'e etc..
Architecture: love hawksmoor, Wren, Vanburgh, Soane & Gibbs etc...
I'm a massive Julian Cope fan, and thus got interested in Pre-historical sites and their magick. Fave sites include:The Ridgeway Chalk Downs (White-horse hill), Arbor Low (Derbys)
Music is a passion: all sorts, but love old Indie, New-wave, goth, Kate Bush, Nick Cave, PJ Harvey & even some folkie stuff!!
Can somebody inform 'KillingJoker' (Ian) that he knows me from pissed-up days @ Leicester's Fan-club... Mike.
