Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

thanks to couchsurfing and for sure thanks to Lut & Willy i spent the most amazing days of my life.

Interests

cycling, game theory, science fiction, sports history & culture, try to follow experimental theatre groups.

Music, Movies & Books

Pablo Neruda's Anthology, The Book of Disquiet, Don Quijote & The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy are the books that i read again and again.

Fernando Pessoa, Douglas Adams, Arthur C. Clarke, Jose Saramago, Haruki Murakami, Eduardo Galeano, Julio Cortázar are my favourite authors.

3 director/writer i like most: Woody Allen, Wes Anderson & Michel Gondry. Watch their filmography over and over.

Among these movies; Back to the Future Triology, Across the Universe, Cidade de Deus, Garden State, Los Amantes del Círculo Polar, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Los Lunes al Sol, E.T., District 9, The Wind That Shakes Barley, Once, Les Triplettes de Belleville.

Haven't heard someone like Billie Holiday. It's always good to listen Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald, Madeleine Peyroux, Etta James, Chet Baker, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, EST,...

Pau Casals & Jacqueline du Pré weren't from our planet.

Also it's always good to listen lyrically genius people. The Beatles, The Smiths, Feist, Kings of Convenience. Do I have to mention Elliott Smith?

From today The xx, Beach House, Vampire Weekend, Florence+the Machine,...

Oh, pure emotions; fado!
