You’re my average friend (on Facebook, at least). You like music above all, with a slight fondness for writing, technology and poker. You went to Oxford, where you did English and Law, you’re liberal, and your first name is James (it would be James, Ben, Martin, Mark or Adam but only James is the average length). You live in London, England.
Your top ten movies
Shaun of the Dead
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Requiem for a Dream
Apparently you are a NIHILIST who likes nothing above all (incidentally, isn’t Walter’s line in The Big Lebowski, in response to Donny’s shout of “Nazis” “No, Donny, these men are nihilists, there’s nothing to be afraid of” an excellent summary of nihilism?) Nothing, that is, except semi-fantastical action with a dark edge of humour.
Your top TV:
Curb your enthusiasm
So you’re an escapist then – Coronation St and Eastenders don’t make your top ten, but the kooky soap opera that is Lost is easily your favourite show. You’re also deeply sardonic/sick/wrong and take more of your culture from the USA than the UK.
Your top music:
I’ve never listened to the Arcade Fire. How can you be a friend of mine? Assuming they’re like the rest of your tastes, you like droney depressed white men singing about how weird life/relationships are.
Your top books:
His dark materials
V for vendetta
Notably, you don’t read that much; you’ve only entered half as many books as you have movies and a quarter as many as TV. Again it’s all escapist stuff, with an edge of depression and mental illness. Nice.
