Despite the blurbs’ being written in the third person, you can usually tell that it was written by said band/artist/writer. As a result, it makes them look like they believe they’re the second coming . With this in mind, I’m going to write a much more honest third person blurb about myself.
<- This is Liam. He’s wearing a flat cap and looking annoyed. See what he did there? With the blog being called ‘Angry Flat Cap’ and everything?
That’s about as clever as you’re going to get from this blog.
Liam is 25 and comes from a small village in Yorkshire. He was bullied for being fat as a child and as a result he now constantly seeks validation from his peers, usually by getting them to laugh. His blog is the latest in a long line of attempts to do this. He is also a failed stand up comedian.
He now lives in South London. He never grows tired of people telling him how much better life is north of the river. Seriously, the next time you see him, why not reel off a long and tedious list of reasons? He’ll love it.
In 2009, he graduated with a first in English and Related Literature from the University of York. He still hasn’t a clue what postmodernism is, and is suspicious of anyone who claims to be able to understand it. He feels the same toward self-professed experts in economics.
He has been writing blogs for Angry Flat Cap since February 2010. In that time, he was had his work featured on Fox News’ website. Don’t get too excited about that though; they thought the blog was called ‘Angry Flat Cat’.
Liam was reading a lot of Charlie Brooker when he came up with the blog’s title. He soon realised that trying to sound angry in every blog is hard work, and best left to the professionals. However, by the time he’d had this epiphany, he’d already paid for the domain name. He refuses to buy another one out of principle.
In his 25 years on this planet, he has visited many countries. His feet have touched down in Japan, Australia, Singapore, Morocco, and Germany, among other places. However, he didn’t have an epiphany whilst in any of these places; he just thought they were quite nice. Don’t expect him to be becoming a prolific travel writer any time soon.
He hopes that you enjoy this vanity project of his, though the needlessly academic style of his writing is bound to turn you off.
