Hello, I’m James O’Malley. I’m 20 years old and my specialist subject is drivel.
Here’s a picture of me wearing a suit, to try and create a good first impression:
Now here’s some information about me to provide you with some context for the rest of the stuff on here:
Thrillingly, I’m a columnist in a real newspaper. I’ve just finished being an awful student (studying International Relations and Globalisation), so now you have to address me as “James O’Malley, BA (Hons)”.
If it’ll give you a better perspective on my character: I’m a big geek, a militant atheist and am left-of-centre politically. And I can’t stand traditional traffic-cone-stealing student culture. I also like punk music, but am far too middle-class to really get away with it.
Here are some largely unattributed user testimonials from people who have actually met me:
“Memorable for swearing above the acceptable talking volume in art galleries”
“Slightly eccentric”, a researcher from The Weakest Link.
“Doesn’t seem to know what globalisation is… which is a problem”, a lecturer from university.
“A Fraudulent Hack who seems to have reasonable views by accident rather than by reason”
“He’s Noam Chomsky’s long lost, less informed cousin”, expert techie, JD.
“Give this man a job! In tax.”, unqualified Doctor, Fundar.
“Manages to reference the Nazis in almost every newspaper column he writes”
Have I (figuratively) sold myself to you yet? Why not start reading the blog?
Want to give me some money in exchange for writing some stuff for you? E-mail me on james (at) jamesomalley.co.uk and we can talk business.Post to: [ del.icio.us ][ Digg it ][ Furl ][ Netscape ][ Newsvine ][ reddit ][ StumbleUpon ][ Yahoo MyWeb ]
