About Me

ABOUT ME

Hedonist, wanderer, European, lazy part time writer, almost professional foosball player, free spirit, occasional liar, social drinker, lucky beggar, minimalist, hitchhiker, idler, blue-eyed, individualist, probably alive.

"Baby, I'm a genius, but nobody knows it but me".

PHILOSOPHY

'How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?'

'If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start'.

'Ja na mój los w ogóle nie narzekam. Uważam się za "dziecko szczęścia" po prostu, wziąwszy pod uwagę zupełne niezabieganie o przyszłość, popularność‡ i przymierze z publiką… i plugawcami (tzw. 5 "p"). Każda chwila mojej egzystencji bez głodu i wszów jest dla mnie niepojętym cudem'.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Member since 2008! It's been seven years now, wow. I host, I surf, I attend to CS parties from time to time. And I have a lot of good memories.

Interests

Global education, history, writing, journalism, social economy, EU & globalisation, foosball, ice hockey, board games, art craft. I would add politics, but well.. I used to like politics and all of that shitty issues, but then I started to study political science. And I changed my mind. Now I am more keen on local society's activities and NGOs.

Music, Movies & Books

Music. I can't name all of it. It depends on my mood, weather and other circumstances. When I'm sad I listen to The National or Damien Rice, just to feel more sad. When I'm drunk I listen to Tom Waits, Gogol Bordello and Joy Division, just to get more drunk. When I want to dance I listen to The Knife, David Bowie and The Beatles. When I want to sing I listen to Bruce Springsteen, Oasis or Ben E. King. Sometimes I am getting obsessed with some band and I play their music until I throw up. At the moment I'm in love with Die Aerzte and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. But overall I am into rock, electro, industrial or old good pop music (oh memories), and some Polish music. I am also a die hard U2 fan, but I don't like to talk about it (unless you're also a fan:).

Movies. La grande bellezza, This must be the place, The Seventh Seal, The Meaning of Life, Leaving Las Vegas, The Big Kahuna, American Beauty, Single Man, Where Buffalo Roam, Himmel uber Berlin, K-Pax, Million Dollar Hotel, The United States of Leland, Fight Club, Yes Man, Into the Wild, Black Cat White Cat, Arizona Dream, Shrink, Night On Earth, Four Rooms. And many more.

Books. Moscow- Petushki (Moscow to the End of the Line), Ripley Bogle, Breakfast of Champions, The Little Prince, Eureka Street, Jacques The Fatalist and His Master, Alice in Wonderland, Factotum, Pulp, Crime and Punishment, The Trial, Dubliners, The Master and Margarita, Bukowski's poetry. I like Polish writers too - Witkacy, Stachura, Gombrowicz and Kapuscinski. Lately fascinated by The Unbearable Lightness of Being.

TV. Twin Peaks, House of cards, IT Crowd, Monty Python, How not to live your live, Broadchurch, X Files (I'm secretly in love with Mulder's hair cut from 1995), Suits.

My list is still open. You can recommend me your favourites.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

After crazy trip across England and Wales I landed up on stage with U2.

Few weeks later I met Kevin Spacey in London and he said to me: "See you later". I'm still waiting for next date.

Teach, Learn, Share

I guess you can infer it from my profile. I can share with you everything I have typed in "Interests" field.
I can teach you some Polish or Kashubian (if you aren't Polish you probably don't even know what the hell Kashubia is:). And I can tell you a lot of stories about my city and country.
I can also cook something for you! But I'm not into traditional Polish cousine.
You can teach me German.
And you can show me YOUR city. I am not really a tourist and I am more interested in your places and your stories than guidebook's best choices.
