Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hope to help keep some couches warm and make em feel needed


I'm a Couchsurf virgin so far, but have hosted several dozen of my friends and friends of friends


Interests: Food, beer, culture, sport, biking, music, large dogs, Paul Krugman, whiskey, interesting people, and South African accents

Things I'm not interested in: people who suck, boredom, flavorless food, propaganda, and curling

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: This list is endless, but a few that come to mind are City of God, Requiem for a Dream, Mother, The Graduate, Run Lola Run, Natural Born Killers, Enter the Void, and Old Boy.

Music: This list is even longer, but a few artists that get a lot of play on my iPod lately are Little Dragon, Owusu and Hannibal, Stevie Wonder, RJD2, Flying Lotus, MF Doom, Black Keys, Chet Faker, and Nicolas Jaar.

Books: Another shortened list, but The Little Prince (best book ever written), Art of War, Wealth of Nations, Crime and Punishment, To Kill a Mockingbird, Where the Wild Things Are, and have Das Kapital in queue.
