About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Ultimate Galactic Domination -- it could take a while

ABOUT ME

I had a nice insight a few years ago - I realised, I study keeps distracting me from my travel (when previously I thought my study was progressing too slowly because of all the travel I kept doing).I love music (see below), and psychology (my study) but am not about to try brainwash anybody soon. That's later, after my galactic domination.I enjoy an intellectual discussion, but also enjoy idiotic conversation, because I'm a bit of an idiot sometimes too. I have a mild peter-pan complex. I'm collecting philosophies from different people the world over.

PHILOSOPHY

My life, my mind, it's always changing. I can't summarise my philosophy in one line, because the next day it will be different. Don't fight change, lead it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Participated plenty on my latest eurotour - met many a couch (and comfy bed).

Like your thermal underpants, I will fit into whatever situation it is you have for me, warming your life when you want it to, and going unnoticed when you're preoccupied. Hurmmnn... :-P

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfed between September 2007 and January 2008: Amsterdam, Lyon, Geneva, Basel, Freiburg and Vienna. You know who you are. Thanks a bunch guys! When are you coming to Australia??

Hosted not much in my many different sharehouses, February 2008-December 2010.

Also, in 2011 CS meet-ups in Bangkok, and more surfing in Lyon, cote d'Azûr, Firenze, Marburg (a long stay here!), Jena, Berlin. Christmas CS party in Krakow 2012, then meetups in Kuala Lumpur.

And I love it all!

Interests

People, music, history, science, fine arts, ideas, and a new one for me: literature. I genuinely can be interested in anything. Anything except maybe tax and finance, or the weather.

Trekking, rock-climbing, going to gigs, (traveling!), reading, conversation.

Really, this one question has an infinite answer.

Music, Movies & Books

Grew up on rock/metal and classical music, and then evolved. Stuff I've recently gotten into (again?), for example: The Dresden Dolls, Tchaikovsky, gypsy/klezmer music, The Knife, Chopin, Blondie, Townes Van Zandt, Huun Huur Tu, Rammstein, etc etc.

For movies and books, anything that isn't forgettable. If we're talking about the movie/book for a long time afterward (about how good it was, or about how bad it was) - this is the sort of media I like.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was born. I don't remember it, but I did it. A pretty amazing thing to do, I reckon.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can introduce you to a lot of Australian music; no matter what your taste in music, I'll find something for you. And if you like dressing up like army men and running around bush shooting infra-red light beams at people, I can show you that too. I'm always looking to trade creative skills, ideas, philosophies.

As for me learning, well, that never ends. I'm interested in too many things for one brain to handle, so anything you want to teach, go for it!
