Holy Crap it's me.
Good [time of day here] to you. I'm Slendid Suit.
I first created this page about... four years ago now and am older, wiser, drunker. Actually somewhat baffled that I decided to come back, in all honesty.
I like a number of things in terms of music, games, TV and what-have-you, so here's a list in no particular order:
- William Blake, specifically the memetastic poem to end all poems, The Tiger.
- Mary Prankster
- Lucky Number Slevin
- Garth Marenghis Darkplace
- The Decemberists
- Green Wing
- The Flaming Lips
- Y: The Last Man
- The Wire
- Avatar The Last Airbender
- The First Law
- Ok Go
- The Gone Away World
- A Wickless Band called Frightened Rabbit
- World Of Darkness, though due to age I was introduced to New first, so my favourite is Werewolf The Forsaken.
- Terry Pratchett
- Percy Bysshe Shelley, admittedly largely due to Watchmen.
- Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
- The Realm Of The Elderlings series
- Raising Arizona, No Country For Old Men and all things Coen
- Annnnnnd Warren Ellis
- House Of Leaves
- The Wicked And The Divine
- Angry impassioned non-fiction political books.
To name but a few.
In other news, I'm small and skinny and English. I recently graduated in Journalism and Creative Writing at Uni. Or Creative Writing and Journalism, depending on whom I want to impress. I am now studying an MA in Amsterdam.
If I have an alignment, I would suggest Lawful Neutral with delusions of Chaotic Good.
I was involved in the forum RP Justice Avengers, wherein I played a Rule 63'd version of the Golden Age Sandman, a character I'm immensely proud of.
I also have Steam! Gimme a PM if you want to play some TF 2 or Borderlands or something.
- Aloof Big Brother: I'm the oldest of four. I wish I was this more often, to be honest.
- Buffy Speak: Philosophically speaking. I'm very much of the opinion that if somebody needs to use a fuckton of technical jargon to explain something, they clearly don't understand what they're on about too well.
- Cluster F-Bomb: I was first introduced on our Student Radio station as "This is Slendid Suit, Slendid, please don't swear." Which is probably some sort of indicator.
- The Lancer: my preferred role. Fuck being the lead character, awful things happen to that guy.
- The Role Player
- Precision F-Strike: Often used when I want to emphasise that some information is either particularly important or interesting. A trait picked up from my father.
- Sophisticated as Hell: I'll zig-zag back and forth between erudite and uncouth in a matter of seconds.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: I will never not believe that humans are awesome and anyone is capable of bringing out the best in humanity. This is in conflict with my otherwise cynical and atheistic attitudes to a lot of stuff. Go figure.
Things that feed my narcissism:
If I make any meaningful contributions to the site, they will go below this current sentence. Hi.
What's that? There is one now? Eh, not really. But I am technically the reason that These Very Forums is now a redirect. So bully for me.
