About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To slice open my heart and examine the melon of my reason.

ABOUT ME

Check the mission. I am yet to explore myself.

PHILOSOPHY

I am an absurdist. I am aware that I can't help but get closer to death every second, and I don't believe in absolute happiness. Still, life can be enjoyable, and that's the only way for me to fight nihilism and pessimistic self-consciousness. I believe all future goals to leave something on the planet (Children, books, buildings, money, etc) are induced by individual's fear to die. I too have such goals but I believe that the more important are satisfaction of the present-self and enjoyment when there is opportunity.

Music, Movies, and Books

I've read and am interested in all books by Foucault, Pynchon, Kafka, Deleuze & Guattari, Emma Goldman, Alice Walker, Derrida, Joyce, Ursula Le Guin, Camus, Proust, Dostoyevski, John Zerzan, Max Stirner, Henry Miller, Hemmingway, Djuna Barnes, Judith Butler, Suzan Lori-Parks, bell hooks, Samuel Beckett, Sylvia Plath, Shakespeare, Murakami, Aldous Huxley, Cortazar, Anais Nin, and many more I can't list at the moment. I listen to classics, from real classical music to 70s (Pink Floyd, Beatles, etc) and I enjoy indie - underground rap along with anything avant-garde. I love too many movies to mention but I'm mostly into surreal productions and psychological thrillers.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seen a helicopter plunge into the sea, in which I had seen death before. I got almost drowned. OH I guess I was supposed to speak of nice things here. Sorry!

Teach, Learn, Share

Hey, I have 300 kg of weightlifting set in my room. I can teach you about strength training. We can always exchange knowledge, discuss about life, movies, literature, philosophy, languages. But I don't like to sound authoritative or in the high position of teaching, I am mostly into learning, so teach me what you got. And I love sharing.
