About Me


All your life is Time magazine, channel 14, what does it mean?


"It is better to burn out, than to fade away."
"The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently."
"Two roads diverged into a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by.
And that has made all the difference."
"Everything was better, when everything was worse."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

It is great if you have some or a lot of hosting experience, do not snore, do not mind me reading late at night,
can ride a bike to go around town, and most important are worth to talk to as I had more than my share of small-talk already.
You can always ask me for and about anything, I will not take it badly - as long as you accept me declining your offer or choosing not answering.
Searching for a RUSSIAN-speaking TANDEM partner.

My interests are literature, philosophy,chess, politics, history, soccer, my friends and some awesome movies and sitcoms, even if I do not like television in general.

Music, Movies & Books

Books I like include Animal Farm, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Faust and The Master and Magarita, which picks up the Faust theme all over again.
Besides Orwell, Nietzsche, Goethe I like Hemingway, Wilde, Borges, Gontscharovo´s Oblomov and Lermontov´s A Hero of Our Time. When I was younger I liked Hesse. Zweig is my favourite storyteller.

Music: Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, Cat Stevens, Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen and some contemporary rock bands. The Wall is my favourite album.
Movies: Trainspotting, Fight Club, Seven, American Beauty, The Breakfast Club,Reservoir Dogs, Dead Poets Society and many films by Kubrick and Woody Allen.

Teach, Learn, Share

"We need to make books cool again. If you go to
somebody´s place and they don´t have books,
don´t fuck them."
