Meet the family - PoyntonShark
By Major Bloodnok
June 27 2006
Sentenced to exile in the colonies, PoyntonShark has been forced to endure sunshine, barbies and Aussie beer (well, two out of three ain't bad...). Faced with discussing Super14 or staying up to talk to civilisation, Poynters has eschewed sleep - which probably explains his choice of music. Read on:
Meet The Family
Perth, Western Australia
The Italian Job (Michael Caine version), Manhunter, Bladerunner, Top Secret
Bottom, Captain Pugwash
Foundation series, anything by Tom Sharpe
Echo and the Bunnymen, The Cure, The Who, Frank Sinatra (almost anything under 200 beats per minute). Definitely NOT that garbage that won the Oscar for best song last night.
Just about anything, particularly into Sashimi and Thom Yam at the moment
Would kill for a good pint of bitter, desperately researching Australian brews to find something enjoyable. Jack Daniels and Coke, Stolichnaya, Lagavulin, Remy Martin XO
Place(s) to visit
San Francisco, Grand Canyon, Fiji, just about anywhere in New Zealand

Four people you'd invite to dinner:
