\m/ Name: Gail
\m/ Age: 22
\m/ Location: From Glasgow, living in Dundee ... Scottish through and through, unfortunately. Almost all of the jobs that I'm applying for once I graduate are in London, thankfully! (*crosses fingers*)
\m/ Ten favorite bands (don't all have to be metal bands):
- Amon Amarth
- Pyclon Nine
- The Sisters Of Mercy
- After Forever
... Damn that's difficult to do! Those are just 10 that I'm currently listening to ... my favourites change all the time (mix of various fairly-heavy-but-melodic metal sub-genres, a good chunk of industrial and some gothic rock), though Tristania's back-catalogue is currently at the top of my list. I'm quite eager to see how much their new singer will fuck up ... I'm pretty sure she's only in there because of sexual favours.
\m/ Five favorite movies:
- Un Long Dimanche De Fiançailles
- V For Vendetta
- ... Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. >: |
\m/ Five favorite books:
- Goethe's Faust
- Paradise Lost
- Anything by Neil Gaiman :D
- Aaaand, embarassingly, anything by Anne Rice. Good bit of variety!
\m/ What is an interesting fact about you?
I finish my degree in animation ... in three days. I am procrastinating just now, clearly!
\m/ If you could be anything besides yourself for a day, what would you be, and why?
I'd like to say something cooler, buuut ... honestly, a shorter person than myself. I'm 5'10, so not the tallest, but I pretty much stopped growing at 14, so I'm really curious as to what it'd be like to not see over most ladies' heads. Ooooh to able to wear some of my massive boots without being taller than my boyfriend! XD
\m/ What was the best metal concert you've been to?
Not a single concert, but I went to 2007's "Masters Of Rock" in Vizovice in the Czech Republic with a big group of mates ... it was excellent. Seeing Finntroll and After Forever as two of the headliners was fantastic.
\m/ Do you play a music instrument? If yes, tell us more.
Not exactly. I used to play the violin, and own a bass guitar, which I, ehr, know how to pick up. I really want to actually learn it at some point.
\m/ Post a photo of yourself. If not of yourself, then of your art, or any picture you'd like to share.
Bathroom mirror pic:
Aaaand, seeing as art was just recommended, here's one of mine:
Unfinished, of course, but it's a start! (Switched there for a larger one with a smaller file-size ... eeeh, it's behind a cut!)
Almost everyone who I follow on LJ I've come across through either art or goth-rock communities, so I'd love to meet some fellow metal-heads! :D x
