Meet the Vultures: Christopher Wood
Chris is a poet who dabbles in fancy burgers.
Hey, Chris! How are you? What was the last thing you ate and what would you rate it out of ten?
I’m actually visiting my parents currently, so it was some of those artisan spice-covered burgers and chips. Paired with a cider, I’d give it a solid seven.
What’s your favourite album?
Nick Drake’s Five Leaves Left. Tomorrow the answer will be different.
What drew you to CV?
A chance for a publication that didn’t have the same workplace politics as the other publications that I’d worked for, and to expand my portfolio. I also enjoy rambling to no effective end.
Where else can we find you?
I’m actually a performing spoken word artist/poet (although both of those titles make me, accurately, sound like a bit of a sod): so you can find me online at Chris Wood Poetry on Facebook and @crwexe on Twitter. I’m also performing with the Aberdeen University Comedy Society at Knockengorroch World Ceilidh (26th-29th May) and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe at Canon’s Gait Bar (19th-27th August).
Who would win in a fight: a kangaroo with one punching hand or a crocodile missing half of its teeth?
Tough one. In a traditional boxing format, the kangaroo on points. In a straight fight, the crocodile.
