About Me

I just moved to Freising.. And I don't know a living soul in the area. So I am currently looking to meet people to spend my time with.

ABOUT ME

Me... uhm...
There is not so much to tell...

I guess you could call me the average nerd... I like computer games, fantasy books, rock music and beer... I actually understand the sience jokes in shows like "the Big Bang Theory" and I do find them funny (back when that show was actually funny... früher (tm)).

I measure my tea-intake in cubic meters... I try not to judge people by their appearance, but i confess that i do not succeed always.
I do like to listen to music, nice and loud and get carried away with it and simply enjoy it at times. I also like to listen to silence... And I do like to listen to music on high-quality speakers... just so loud as is neccessary to hear every detail of the sound, admiring the craft of the audio-engineer rather than that of the musician.

I dress comfortably and unremarkably rather than in up to date fashion.
I grew a beard mostly because I was too lazy to shave... and then at some point decided to simply go with it.

I used to work at a campus radio station. Probably the best and the worst thing i ever did was to join that radio station... A lot of fun and beer... and a lot of time i should have spent studying.
I did host a show every week... nothing serious... but i am told that the people who listened to it had good time. That's more than i had hoped for... ;)

More recently I picked up pen&paper role playing games. I did not expect something could be that much fun... be a fulfilling pastime and still be so easy to do. Even more recently I have started painting miniatures for use in tabletop games... I'm not winning any prizes yet... but I do like what I am doing.

PHILOSOPHY

Never assume malice where stupidity will suffice!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Spent one legendary night in Glasgow... that's why i signed up!

Attended the MADCHESTER INVASION 2013 and survived!

Met a great person from Mexico who could not even host me... but suggested to go for a drink anyway...

I never had a bad experience with CS!

Interests

fantasy, broadcasting (i work at a student's radio station). Political satire.

I also like to sing and dance... I'm not saying I'm good at it... I just like to do it...

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Punk, Ska, Metal... mostly... but I am sort of flexible sometimes... e.g. I am developing a fondness of 70's Rock...

Books: Fantasy... "Memory, Sorrow and Thorn", "The Farseer", "The Tawny Man", "Shadowmarch", "The Hobbit" currently reading "The Wheel of Time"... book 4 out of 14... so that's gonna last a while...

Movies: There is loads of good Movies... my favorite one would be "Gattaca"

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Done: I once sang "My Heart Will Go On" in a punkrock-club.

Seen: I was walking through a small town in Ireland. And suddenly without any discernable reason someone took out a guitar an began to play. And people passing by would just stop and begin to sing an dance in the middle of the street.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can run a D&D game...

Other than that nothing special... We can hang out, chat, cook together... I am usually up for a hike or a beer (if necessary at the same time)
