Who Is Joey Supertramp?
Date of Birth:
14th September 1986
Once Lived In:
Is Currently In:
Travelling the world – Immersing myself in culture, foreign foods, meeting fellow travellers, drinking local moonshines, flying (not physically, in a plane!), hugging rabid animals.
Movies – Hell, I teach them, so I gotta love them! Enjoy a good Hollywood blockbuster but my forté is foreign film and independent productions. You tell me a movie, I can almost guarantee I could name the director and the leading cast.
Nightlife – Getting inebriated, making the best friends of my life (and not seeing them ever again the next day), loud music, dancing like nobody is watching, putting your arm around the stranger next to you and belting out the song playing like you are chanting at a footy game in the crucial final moments.
Music – My roots are in the rock genre, from metal to alternative, however I am quite the fan of a heavy bassline, bright lights and a whole lotta fist pumping!
Hates To The Very Core:
Seafood Sticks/Immitation Crab – I swear they were created by whatever molevolent force that makes the world turn, in order to punish me for any time I do wrong – like, say, push over an old lady or eat someone’s last Rolo. I would kill my entire family with a blunt instrument before you’d have me even put one to my mouth.
Talking During Movies – Unless it’s a silent film, why do you feel the need to add dialogue to something that already contains enough speaking? I appreciate that the story of how you found a dollar on the bus or that lump on your grandmothers neck is getting bigger, however, the next two hours of my life and attention belong to the director and his actors…your problems can wait.
Routine – 9-5? I’d rather a 7-11, get my ham and cheese toastie oooonnnn!
Meeting and hugging a panda cub in Chengdu, China.
Not starting this whole travelling malarkey earlier.
What’s The Deal With This ‘Supertramp’ Tag?
After reading Into The Wild (a photocopied version, bought from a Vietnam convenience store), I was inspired by Chris McCandless’ journey and his reasons for leaving everything behind to become a vagabond and do what nobody has done before. Now, obviously my travels are by no means as extreme or as inspirational as his but one thing that I feel we both share, is the ideal of having no possessions and no permanent residence so that you never feel a need to return somewhere. Sell your things, pack a bag, see the world.
