A Brief History of My Time

I am john, a regular human type, living currently in or around Edinburgh, Scotland.
The 'alias' appeared as a way of being able to almost use my name to sign into web sites.
My main interests are music, books, photography, cinema, and basically anything which passes the time in a creative way. I also spend a lot of time 'down the pub, and have the scars to prove it.
I have an edited guide to Ex-Pat bars in Paris - read if you're going over there and fancy avoiding the French.
I am currently looking for a next topic to write about, so any suggestions would be welcome.
