About Me

From now till end of August I am out of town from mid September till mid October in Kiev, sublet my place in between.

I am glad to read your request in Russian.

I am out of town a lot this summer. While in town I can meet up in the afternoons or host exceptional guests.

PHILOSOPHY

"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 travelled 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.

Music, Movies, and 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."

"Wer die Enge seiner Heimat begreifen will, der reise. Wer die Enge seiner Zeit begreifen will, der studiere Geschichte." Kurt Tucholsky
