\m/ Name: Sari
\m/ Age: 23
\m/ Location: London-area, England
\m/ Ten favorite bands(don't all have to be metal bands):
Cradle of Filth
Hanzel Und Gretyl
I hate answering these questions, because I can never fit enough in - so with the exception of the first three the line-up changes every time, depending on what I've been listening to recently.
\m/ Five favorite movies:
Son Of Rambow
\m/ Five favorite books:
The Sea Wolf (Jack London)
Moonfleet (John Meade Faulkner)
Neverwhere (Neil Gaiman)
Sherlock Holmes collection (Arthur Conan Doyle)
Treasure Island (Louis Robert Stevenson)
I'm a geek for 19th century lit (Neil Gaiman excluded, obviously).
\m/ What is an interesting fact about you?
I ride horses - Shire horses, at that, as I spend my spare time working as a groom and rider for Waldburg Shires. I've been riding for 17 years and have the bow legs to prove it. Round here at least, metal and alt styles don't seem to mix with horses. I always get weird looks at equine events ... but that might just be me. ;)
\m/ If you could be anything besides yourself for a day, what would you be, and why?
Anything? I'd be a cat. I own two myself and I swear they must be the most contented animal on earth. Plus, I actually love sleeping: and cats spend 99% of their time doing just that.
\m/ What was the best metal concert you've been to?
I'm going to risk my neck here and say Hanzel Und Gretyl - I consider them to be industrial metal, but I know some people don't think that counts. *shrug* I've seen them twice, but the best gig was the last one I went to - at the Camden Underworld (I love that venue), in July this year. I'd waited 2 years to see them again, and I must confess to something of a girl crush on the female vocalist, Vas Kallas. So I could easily have been disapointed, but they put on an utterly fantastic show and the crowd were brilliant too - everyone got up on stage at the end and pretty much squished Von Loopy against the ceiling. It was good fun madness. The only downside was that Von Loopy poured beer all over me and it got in my DSLR camera; ARGH. D:
\m/ Do you play a music instrument? If yes, tell us more.
Nope. My dad is a multi-instrumentalist musical genius, but I'm afraid I've inherited absoloutly none of his talent.
\m/ Post a photo of yourself. If not of yourself, then of your art, or any picture you'd like to share. [If you dont have an Image Host, I suggest using one such as http://www.photobucket.com . The image must show up in your introduction, not just the link.]
Apparantly I don't have any photos where I'm not looking like a twat. This must mean something.
And here's a photo from that HUG gig - before my camera got beer in it. I <3 Vas.
