Benjamin Brock's Interests


A man of many muses am I: A finch fancier (specifically Canaries, as well as British Finches and Buntings), a birdwatcher, a painter (watercolour and miniature painting), a cello player, a carpenter and cabinetmaker, a gardener, a hunter, a fisherman, an avid reader of classic literature... Heck, I even dabbled in computer coding for a short amount of time, all very interesting and enjoyable things to me.ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤAll this should make clear that I'm attempting to be the most self-made man I can be.


Mostly just stuff from The Oh Hellos along with slightly more ambient things like Mongolian throat-singing, Gregorian chants, or whatever happens to be coming out of my radio when I'm driving lol. Also the specific notes my cello instructor tries to get me to focus on (bless him).


Having a large DVD collection, it naturally contains some of my favourites: 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels', 'Snatch', 'Shaun of the Dead', 'The Prince of Egypt', 'The Hobbit' and 'Lord of The Rings' Trilogies, 'Kill Bill', 'Van Helsing', 'John Carter', 'Born Free', 'SE7EN', and a whole slew more.


Any good documentary narrated by Sir David Attenborough is usually good enough. Though, on cold cozy nights, I often enjoy watching reruns of the 1990's Moomin series with a nice cup of tea or hot chocolate.ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ‎ ‎ㅤㅤㅤㅤ‎ ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ


I've found most of J.R.R. Tolkien's books tickle the book-bone just right (particularly The Silmarillion and it's openness to interpretation), but other than that I've spent a decent amount of time reading my way through: Ursula Le Guin's 'The Books of Earthsea', Phillip Pullman's 'The Book of Dust', Richard Adam's 'Watership Down', James H. William's 'Elephant Bill', Harry Johnson's 'The Living Races of Mankind', Anya Seton's 'Katherine', Kazuo Ishiguro's 'The Remains of the Day', 'The Paintings and Drawings of J.B.C. Corot', Casimir Laski's 'Winter Without End', and, of course, 'The Complete Tales of Beatrix Potter' and Kenneth Grahame's 'The Wind in the Willows'.ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ‎ ‎ ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ‎ ‎ ㅤㅤ‎ I refuse to read anything written by the lecherous misanthropic hack known as George R.R. Martin.ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ‎ ‎ ㅤ‎ ‎ ㅤ‎ ‎ As a bonus note; I'm also extremely familiar with, as any man worth his salt is, the Bible and it's teachings, as well as Warhammer 40K lore thanks to the novels written around it.

Benjamin Brock's Blurbs

About me:

A displaced Englishman living in New Zealand -- Born in Surrey, spent a small part of my early childhood in Berkshire, moved to rural Manchester and spent most of my life there, with frequent visits down to Devon. Fled England when I realised how blighted and corrupt it had become in modern times, particularly in highly populated areas.ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤIt has always been a dream of mine, ever since childhood, to start my very own farmstead. I am working hard to make this dream come true here in New Zealand... Eventually.ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤUntil then, IT'S BADGER TIME!!!


Who I'd like to meet:

When all is said and done, and it's finally my time to depart, I'd love nothing more than to meet God at His gates and, if I am found worthy, have a friendly chat about His plans for the new world.
