ABOUT ME

"Cat-outsite-the-hat, tin man, joker, freak, Mr. B, tiger killer, nerd, Russian ninja, creative, mirror, пупсик, mephisto, Brad Pitt, klugscheißer, sophisticated bum with a healthy degree of nonchalance."

PHILOSOPHY

I'll give you call when I'm either

(1) in hell playing strip poker with Mephistopheles, the whore of Babylon and Jesus or
(2) an albino cockroach eating bat shit in the caves of Mexico
(3) shooting portraits of Venus on Mt Olympus and licking ambrosia off of Diana's fingers.

and let you know.

C'est promis.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosted mostly. Met a lot of CSers during travels, but didn't really get to couchsurf couchsurf.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I like it. I've been lucky to have met some amazing people during my travels and hosts.

However... due to some requests I have encountered, I hereby state on the record that my primary objective is not to hook up when I couchsurf or host. I like people. I like to talk about sex with people. But that doesn't mean I wanna fuck people. I prefer cute furry animals. Now, please let's end the CS is for hooking up bullshit and let's have a cup of tea.

Interests

Multifaceted. Tried and trying a lot of things, some still is practiced on occasion but three things closest to heart are:

(1) Photography
-As in "image creation." My one and only love and the only thing--apart from the ocean--I tend take seriously these days (sincere and dramatic pause). Anyway, I want to take this "image creation" thing that I do professional.
(2) Art
-fancy word for putting my crazy ideas onto paper with the help of pencil, charcoal or watercolor.
(3) Music production
-if you must call it that. I like to plink on my Juno and layer it with some salsa sounding claves and kicks. Don't have the gear to properly master it though. I did some DJing (fancy word for playing music in sync and sharing it with your friends) back in the day, but had to sell my decks and 12" due to frequent moveabouts.

So, to summarize, I guess creating something from nothing with my own hands is what I am most interested in at the moment.

Music, Movies & Books

Films: Lars von Trier, Wes Anderson, Stanley Kubrick, Federico Fellini, Victor Erice, Leos Carax, Vittorio De Sica, Osamu Tezuka, Gaspar Noe, Quentin Tarantino etc. I'm a bit of cinephile. I don't need food. A good film will suffice.

Music: Vivaldi, Chopin, Brahms, Tavener; Joe Tex, Nilsson, Muddy Waters, Miles Davis, The Robins; Deeply Rooted House, Klockworks, Ostgut Ton, Udacha Records etc. Music is life. In nominus patris, et filii, et spiritus sancti. Amen.

Literature: Manga (like Osamu Tezuka; I confess; I'm a fucking nerd), Dostoevsky, Edgar Allan Poe, Hemingway to name a few. I don't read much these days. Damn electronic society is eating away my brain. I prefer to watch films.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Only one? Well, buying my first shitty camera and set of Zeiss lenses would surely be it.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn how to be a human being.

I can teach you how to see.
