To most I would be considered a bit of a party animal. Can normally be found in a pub propping up the bar watching another cheesy covers band.
I am very rarely without headphones plugged in and my hi-fi is normally on and playing discs, even when I am asleep.
Favourite artists :
Megadeth, Front 242, Nine Inch Nails, B52's, Type O Negative, Sepultura, Pete Namlook, Ritchie Hawtin, Inland Knights, Depeche mode, Sonic Youth, .. and lots more.
I play mainly at Gameknot nowadays. If you're up for a game then always feel free to challenge me (14 day games only please).
I don't have a chess style and tend to play as the position shows fit. My favourite opening is French Defence Advance. I also dabble in the Scotch and Ruy Lopez from time to time.
My forum is open for discussions on anything and everything as long as it fits the rules of the site. The more the merrier I say.
