My number ones - Simon Pilling

The Toy Fair event manager tells us about a few of his favourite things.
Publish date:

Number one album: Basement Jaxx - The Singles (they were awesome live at the Roundhouse)

Film: Evil. A Swedish film directed by Mikael Hafstrom. Highly recomment it, as long as you don't mind subtitles.

Book: The Positornic Man by Isaac Asimov

TV programme: House, with Hugh Laurie

Comedian: Russell Howard

Number on single when you were born: December '63 (Oh what a night) - Four Seasons

Website: Not much of a specific website user, so would have to say Google

Gadget: Not a gadget geek, don't even wear a watch. Will have to say... bottle opener

Tipple: Dark rum, currently Morgan's Spiced, a good slug with full fat coke, over ice and a slice of lime

Food: Touh question to answer for me. Home made curry, probably a dhansak. Wlhtough I'm learning to make proper green tikka. It just pips the full on traditional roast, but the curry may have to be seved in a Yorkshire pudding.

Piece of advice: Always regret doing something raher than not doing it, if you have any regrets at all. Life is about experience.
