About Me

CURRENT MISSION

SERENITY NOW

ABOUT ME

Hi, how are you? i'm amanda. a vegan from melbourne. i've lived here my whole life. i study contemporary dance at university here, and i really love contact improvisation. i'm my own person. into a whole range of stuff, from here there and everywhere. i dont have a million friends. i am seriously addicted to apple juice. and i dont have a dog no more :( that was one of the biggest losses in my life so far.

PHILOSOPHY

i believe humans are not the most superior creatures on earth. i'm interested in the idea of god but i dont use that word a lot. judaism (+ kabbalah) fascinates me. i live as a vegan, its important to me but dont worry because i dont force it on people. i dont bite :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

i'm very new to this CS thing... at the moment i can't host anyone. i hope it changes in the next few years because i think this project is a great one.

Interests

ART - dance, sound, visual. creating things. experiencing things. new places. i like it when people are excited. and also calm. love breathing air really deep, love to laugh, love apple juice (did i say that already?), love to dance.

Music, Movies & Books

MUSIC oh how i love sounds. and silence mostly experimental sound/music. and recently became interested in techno+electro. noises are good. my favourite favourites are: john frusciante, omar rodriguez + the mars volta, abba, boys noize, sunn o))), bee gees, pj harvey, radiohead, fugazi, ellen allien, blonde redhead, nico, bjork....................

i love dave chappelle's show, law & order, seinfeld, will & grace....

movies? BACK TO THE FUTURE 1-3! anything by Maya Deren and Man Ray. a bout de soufle by godard seduced me so much i'm coming to visit paris! the wizard of oz, west side story, buffalo '66, the brown bunny (i like vincent gallo...), SLAM!, belle du jour, all that jazz, un chien andalou, amelie, un long dimanche de fiançailles, united states of leland, django...

my favourite classical ballets are: swan lake (anne wooliams' production for the australian ballet), giselle (maina gielgud's version for the australian ballet), the sleeping beauty (nureyev's production for the national ballet of canada),romeo and juliet (macmillan for the royal ballet).....

Teach, Learn, Share

**SOMEBODY please teach me to DJ with decks** as i've said i'd love to learn other languages, and i'd be happy to share english with people who are interested. i can show you basic photoshop stuff (like how to download a free full version illegally!), teach you how to make contact microphones from smoke detectors... i'll make/teach you about vegan food! mmmm. maybe introduce you to some cool new tunes or artists or something...
