Twenty questions to a 'Usual Suspect'


Real Name Graeme Griffiths
Location Marlow
Occupation Software Engineer in the Video/TV equipment industry

Movie(s) Shawshank Redemption, The Crow, Usual Suspects
TV Programme(s) I watch far too much telly. All the great sit-coms Fawlty Towers, Black Adders, League of Gentlemen. Obligatory - Python. Recently I'm watching far too much CSI.
Book(s) Coffin Dancer by Jeffery Deaver. Quite Ugly One Morning by Christopher Bookmyre. Player of Games by Iain M. Banks. Favourite book is The Beach by Alex Garland, I refuse to watch the film as it simply cannot have done it justice.
Music Began life as a Zeppelin fan, moved onto the hard rock/heavy metal of the late 80's early 90's. Now I try and be eclectic but tend towards the heavier, rockier stuff. Listening to Marilyn Manson - Golden Age of the Grotesque as I type. Foo Fighters, Aerosmith, Metallica, you get the idea. Fave track of all time Wild and Wonderful by The Almighty.
Radio Station(s) Radio 4 to and from work, Radio 1 when I get too bored with the news - Mark and Lard are gods.
Food(s) Anything spicy, love a good curry - I eat kebabs when sober. Be afraid.
Drinks(s) Oi am a zoider driiinker. When volume exceeds comfort, hit the Jack Daniels. Recently converted to the church of AG but still prefer the old apple juice.
Place(s) to visit Everyone should see Vegas before they die - it's a hole but you have to see it. Love the Maldives, heaven.  Universal Islands of Adventure in Orlando for fun.
How long supporting LI? All my life (but I was born again when LI came to the MadStad)
Best ever LI game (Excluding 2002 cup final) Has to be Tigers away this last year, I will always remember jumping around the Crumbly terrace hugging anyone and everyone as the whistle blew.
Favourite LI experience off pitch (Excluding 2002 cup final) First visit to Sunbury, after the PG semi against Quins (March 9th 2002). It just felt like home (and the beer was flowing).
How did you start supporting LI? Richmond cast-off. The debacle left such a bad taste I didn't think I could support another team. Went to LI because I missed rugby and discovered I'd never really supported Richmond. LI was such a different, and to me better, experience I've never looked back.
What are your non-rugby pastimes? Motorcycling, scuba-diving, theme parks (roller coasters), collecting gadgets.
Any Irish connection? None whatsoever - but I am "Irish" - plastic and proud.
Most likely to say? The wrong thing at the wrong time.
Least likely to say? "I have no opinion on that"
Tell us something about you we don't know. I once failed to find my own arse with both hands...
