Meet the Vultures: Darryl Edge
"There was no BS with CV. They're good people who give a damn about helping budding writers. A rare thing indeed."
Hey, Darryl! How are you? What was the last thing you ate and what would you rate it out of ten?
I’m really good, thanks! In a good place right now, which is amazing for me. Recently moved to Leeds and loving it so far!
The last thing I ate (ok, bit of a cheat answer and not the *last* thing but I need to mention it) was at a place called ‘Red’s True BBQ’ in Leeds city – the best meat I have ever tasted. I got food drunk 3 times. Can’t recommend it enough.
A 10/10 experience. No joke.
What’s your favourite movie?
Favourite film? Jeeeezzz, that’s a toughie as it can change quite a lot. I’m always partial to Shawshank Redemption, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Evil Dead Trilogy (I love Bruce Campbell) – but as for right now, as it’s fresh in my mind and I came out the cinema smiling like an idiot and full of good feelings:
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. James Gunn just knows how to blow superhero flicks out of the water and tell wonderful stories.
What drew you to CV?
I came to Cultured Vultures because they offered what no other site did – genuine opportunity.
Everywhere else, as is life, places won’t touch you unless you have experience. But to have experience, you need, well… experience. And those places who want people with experience won’t give experience to people who need experience etc etc.
It’s all a massive cluster-fuck, ya know.
There was no BS with CV. They’re good people who give a damn about helping budding writers. A rare thing indeed.
Where else can we find you?
I’m on all the social medias – Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram.
My username more or less everywhere is DarrylEdge.
Depending on the time of year, my Twitter may be mostly politics based (I’m an angry guy in his 20s watching the world crumble) so be warned.
I have a YouTube channel too (27darryl27), which I’ve been meaning to get back into. Once I’ve got myself sorted (new computer, editing software and so on), I’ll get back on it.
Who would win in a fight: a kangaroo with one punching hand or a crocodile missing half of its teeth?
Ooh, good question. I guess it can depend on the terrain as well. The Kangaroo has striking power, as well as those powerful legs, but if the croc is by water, can isolate a leg and drag that jumping son-of-a-bitch in – it’s a wrap, my boy.
Very close call, which will probably go to a judge’s decision, but I’m going with the crocodile.
