    About Me
    May 29th, 2007 at 21:29

    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:

    (I know I have small hands. Stop Looking.)

    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) and we can talk business.

      pip pip
      got onto this website because i was wondering whether reel big fish were playing 2009 in peterborough
      the peterboroughians need their ska
      typed it into google
      and this came up
      had a wonder around
      its a very good website, btw
      and noticed you did international relations and globalisation
      and stuff
      just entering the upper sixth in a week
      so, for research purposes
      what university do you study at?
      as thats the kinda course i would possibly like to do
      and what were the entry requirements?
      thanks for reading

      I studied at the De Montfort University in Leicester. They’ve apparently stopped doing the exact course “International Relations & Globalisation”, but the politics department is still going strong and offers a load of interesting degrees which share a lot of common ground (IR & Politics, IR & History, etc etc)

      Low entry criteria as well- I got in on a BCD.
