Be the change you want to see in the world. (Mahatma Gandhi)

Handle nur nach derjenigen Maxime, durch die du zugleich wollen kannst, dass sie ein allgemeines Gesetz werde. (Immanuel Kant)

Die meisten Menschen sehen das Problem der Liebe in erster Linie als das Problem, selbst geliebt zu werden, statt zu lieben und lieben zu können. (Erich Fromm)

Music, Movies, and Books

I have to read so much for my philosophy studies that I don't read as much voluntarily as I did before.
Books that I enjoyed very much, however are:
Haben oder Sein, Die Kunst des Liebens (Erich Fromm),
Watership Down (Richard Adams)
More Than Two: A Practical Guide to Ethical Polyamory (Franklin Veaux and Tatiana Gill),
Die Psychologie sexueller Leidenschaft, Intimacy and Desire (David Schnarch),
Faust (Goethe),
Vom Schlechten des Guten oder Hekates Lösungen, Anleitung zum Unglücklichsein (Paul Watzlawick),
Emotionale Intelligenz (Daniel Goleman),
Sophies world (Jostein Gaarder),
Miteinander Reden (Friedemann Schulz von Thun).

Concerning movies: I'm not so much into movies because I simply don't have time for that.
I am not possessing a TV for more than 10 years now and I rarely go to the cinema. I'd rather make some music or read a book if I'm alone.
When I'm with somebody else or for recreation/contemplation watching a movie can be really fun :).

Since I'm studying and teaching music I'm trying to do professionally a lot of different styles of music:
Classical Music, Jazz, Electro, Deep House, Gothic, EDM, Electro Swing, Pop, Rock, Industrial, Progressive Metal, Funk, Techno, House, Death Metal, Reggae, Ska, Dubstep, Drum'n Bass, Trap, Folk Music, Black Metal, Oriental Jazz, Neo-Folk, EBM, etc.

Therefore I'm used to a lot of different styles and are quite open minded to music from all over the world.

My mixed favorites from different styles:
Johann Sebastian Bach, Diary of Dreams, Dave Brubeck, Klangkarussell, Cynic, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Disillusion, Esbjörn Svensson, Skrillex, Seeed, Persephone, Youngblood Brass Band, Ludwig van Beethoven, Katatonia, Shaban & Käptn Peng, The Cat Empire, Parov Stelar, Franz Schubert, Lena Chamamyan, Johannes Brahms, Ära Krâ, The Prodigy, Richard Wagner, Arvo Paert, King Crimson, Wes Montgomery, Francis Poulenc, Miles Davis, Brad Mehldau, Opeth, Dream Theater, Carolin No, Dornenreich, Anathema, Obscura, Goethes Erben, Death, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, At The Gates, In Flames, Shantel, Deine Lakaien, Stevie Wonder, Atheist, Combichrist, Evanescence, Pendulum, Philipp Glass, Behemoth, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, My Dying Bride, Mike Oldfield, The Haunted, Aka Aka, Peter Fox, Necrophagist, Steve Reich.
