Some info about little old me..
Hello, I’m Matt Lockey and as you can probably tell this is my first blog. This page basically gives a bit of info about me, what I like, dislike etc. Enjoy !
I’m 22 years old and live in the village of Milborne Port, which is near Yeovil in Somerset, South West England. I am currently studying with the Open University with a view to completing my degree in IT. I have a love of football supporting Liverpool F.C. while keeping an eye on the results of my local team, Yeovil Town and the San Jose Earthquakes in the MLS.
I generally enjoy a variety of music mainly rock & indie kind of stuff. Anything that isn’t the manufactured, carbon copy pop stars we have a lot of today. Favorites include Kasabian, Reverend & the Makers, Foo Fighters, Dropkick Murphys and some older stuff like Bowie and The Beatles. I also listen to podcasts, mainly Phill & Phil’s Perfect 10, which is an occasional, incredibly sweary but ultimately hilarious podcast from Phill Jupitus & Phil Wilding which if over 18, or of the rebellious type, I suggest you check out & Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast (or as the cool kids call it RHLSTP) where he interviews many of the top names in British Comedy.
I enjoy most TV but passionately detest the reality type crap such as X Factor, The Only Way Is Essex, Geordie Shore et al. Genre wise I enjoy comedy stuff like QI, Mock the Week, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Big Bang Theory, Mighty Boosh and basically most of the stuff they show on Dave! I also enjoy some of the epics from HBO like Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones and have a passion for history so I do enjoy the odd documentary. I also enjoy Spaced,The IT Crowd, The Thick of It, Sherlock, Doctor Who and lots of other good British telly! I pity our Sky+ box ! I also have a love for stand up comedy especially Ross Noble, Jimmy Carr, Tim Minchin, Russell Howard and a lot more ! I have been lucky enough to see Billy Connolly, Chris Addison, Lenny Henry and Mrs Brown’s Boys all live and am going to see Adam Hills in the near future. I have also recently got into Breaking Bad, but am only on series 2 so am avoiding spoilers like the plague!
I enjoy a variety of movies but mainly comedy. My favorites generally involve some combination of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright including Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul and The Worlds End. Being a nerd I also enjoy movies like the Avengers and Lord of the Rings / Hobbit series and the latest Batman trilogy. One of my favorite ever films is Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy starring some of the finest British acting talent like Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Graham, Mark Strong and many others. Some other favorites include Django Unchained, Blazing Saddles and many others.
I enjoy gaming and use both my Xbox 360 and laptop. The game I play mostly is Football Manager and may occasionally post on here about my exploits. Other games series I enjoy / have enjoyed are Assassin’s Creed, FIFA, Red Dead Redemption and Call of Duty.
That’s pretty much it about me, hope you enjoy my blog.
