I'm just looking for some old friends.
I was on this site years ago and met some really nice people, and some
pretty weird ones too, but I'd like to reconnect with a few of them.
Ok so I'm gonna change this cos often get asked the same question.
Why am I here?
Why is a slightly overweight, balding 50 year old guy on what is
supposed to be teen chat site.
The simple answer is, cos I never grew up!
If I try to talk about the stuff I like to people my age, they
normally roll their eyes and say "Ugh, my kids are into that" or
"Really, I stopped doing that when I was in my twenties!!"
I like animé and manga, have done ever since bought Akira on VHS
back in 1991. I like music, loud music lots of old punk and metal, but
also a lot of the stuff they play on Kerrang TV now. I still go to
gigs, though I prefer festivals cos you get your money's worth. Living
in the UK means can get to Glastonbury Festival, Reading/Leeds
Festival and Download (what used to be the Monsters of Rock). I've
also been to the Isle of Wight festival, Bestival, and countless other
smaller ones like Guilfest, Weyfest and the Phoenix Festival.
I consider myself a gamer. I have an Xbox 360 and play, GTA, the Elder
Scrolls and the Fallout games. I also like Red Dead Redemption and the
Saints Row series though the last one was very silly.
I also play wargames, actual 'toy soldiers' though I'm more into
painting the figures than playing. I prefer old school RP games of the
D&D variety (though not actual D&D I don't like some of the concepts)
The fact is I have more in common with my daughter and her friends
than I do with people my own age. Obviously I have to mix socially and
professionally with other 'grown ups' and talk about 'grown up stuff'
mortgages, Brexit, the price of fuel, and shit like that.
So I come here to talk about the stuff I actually like, and that makes
life worth living.
Thank you for listening!!!!
