Bjork, Massive Attack, Morcheeba, Jill Scott, seem to be playing Badly Drawn Boy's Don't forget to Feed the Fish quite a lot at the moment, though I'll probably overdose on it soon, also seem to have gone off bands, being less fanatically devoted to a particular few artists and more open to different sounds and singles.

All about Simon

Male, 32, live in NW London.

Love
dogs, cinema, books (reading & writing), hampstead heath, grass in general (steady!), rivers, nuts, tea, yoga, dogs, rowing (oars not arguments), wine, jeans, Muller fruit corners, apples, bananas, smell of petrol, baking bread, bubble baths, coconut, snow...

Love Less
Sodding London transport (I could write an essay about the buses, North London line, Tube etc. and it would be an outpouring of rage!), opera, mince, soap operas, gym bores, scaffolding (maybe I just wrote that 'cos I'm looking out of the window and there's a whole building emasculated by pipes and polythene and it's making a right racket as they take it down), meringue, people picking their nose and eating it (or their earwax) in public... rugby (licensed thuggery innit?)
