Live faust, die jung
I'm a travelling magician, check out my website www.catchmagic.com. Currently I'm settled in Stockholm and have just completed a tour of theatres. I'm currently gearing up for a second tour.
I have quite a bit of strange ideas of how I want to live. I have been nomadic for a long time and enjoy a life-long quest to understand more and more of the world.
One thing I constantly have to re-learn is that something is not true just because people think it is. Our world is still full of weird myths and life-destroying conventions.
Quantum physics, ghost hunting and eating ice lollies. Swing dancing Lindy Hop madness. Backgammon. Magic. Performance. Variety shows. Comedy. Coffee. Comics. Conundrums. Consistency.
Music, Movies, and Books
Cohen brothers, Wachowski brothers, Marx brothers.
The second entry is a half-bluff.
Old jazz, swing, ragtime and early 1980s American punk rock. Ella, Billie, Nina and Louis. Big rude jake. Lavay Smith and her Red Hot Skilletlickers.
Paul Auster. Phillip K Dick. Douglas Hofstadter. Douglas Coupland. Alan Moore.
I also love pop-science books with real scientific underpinnings. Such as "Guns germs & steel" by Jared Diamond, "59 seconds" and "Quirkology" by Professor Richard Wiseman and "Sex at dawn" by Ryan and Jethá.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
A huge manta ray at thirty meters depth slowly moving above my head like some sort of space ship.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach juggling and I guess I have also learned some stuff about living being nomadic on the road nonstop most of my adult life.
