Hello, and thank you for your interest in me and my blog. My name is Ian Davidson.
I’ll keep this bit short and to the point. Let’s face it, no one likes an unnecessarily long ‘About Me’ section.
I’m a 40-something man living in Oxfordshire where I support my local sports teams, Oxford United (football), Oxford City Stars (ice hockey), and Williams Racing (Formula 1). However, I don’t actually post about sport very often. What I do post (and tweet) about is Science Fiction, with my main focus on the sub-genres of time travel and dystopian future sci-fi in film, TV and literature (including comic books). I also post about movie related things in general, including toys, games, clothing and other memorabilia. Occasionally I write about music, local events and activities and some (but not too many) personal thoughts and opinions.
You should also expect to see the number 27, a lot.
The number 27 tends to keep popping up in my life, often presenting itself at significant and memorable moments. Don’t get me wrong, I do not read any meaning into this. Fate, destiny and luck are not things in which I believe. I simply notice this number more than others when, by pure random chance, it appears. So I have latched on to the number 27 over time, inadvertently adopting it as my number. Not my ‘lucky’ number, just my number of choice.
The first house I moved into as an ‘adult’ was number 27. When I buy a football shirt or ice hockey jersey, I always (when the option is available) put number 27 on the back. I have a ’27 Club’ tattoo, in tribute to the amazingly talented musicians (Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse) who tragically died at this young age. When I make lists of favourites (films, songs etc.) it is always a ‘Top 27’ list. And of course, as you know, I use 27 in my online username(s). It’s not a big deal, just a habit, a quirk I have come to enjoy.
