About Me

PHILOSOPHY

"Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent." L. Wittgenstein

"A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving." Lao Tzu

I'd rather be once in a long-distance-contact with a freethinker, than being daily surrounded by the ultra-conservative.

Interests

Sports, Reading, Movies, Traveling, (Cooking)

Music, Movies & Books

Fictional characters can be more inspiring than creatures made of flesh and blood.

Books, authors, poets: Nâzım Hikmet (the one and only) Bret Easton Ellis (His critics cannot agree if he's a moralist or not. This, combined with his intellectual brilliancy makes him one of my favorite modern authors - American Psycho; besides the atrocities: Bad-ass marvelous book :) Elif Şafak (I like her language and the way she literally becomes one with her characters... and that's it.) Aldous Huxley - How can he make me like Mr. Hutton though I am reluctant to those kind of persons? Why did he have to die??:) Thomas Harris (Hannibal Lecter's creator and an intelligent story-teller) Milan Kundera's most famous one (aficionados will know) unfolds the pursuit of happyness in a meloncholic dress... Stefan Zweig, such a naive, pacifistic and pure character, I definitely have to read more of his works Albert Camus - Authors of the 30's&40's cannot lie and, especially him, he was decades ahead of his time... Do yourself a favor and read "L'Étranger - The Stranger" John Steinbeck - You know that Lennie (in "Of Mice and Men") had to die, don't you?... ;) Books about psychology & philosophy in general

My favorite German-speaking dailies: sueddeutsche, Die Zeit, Der Standard

Movies: M. Scorsese (state-of-the-art portaying), Crossing Over, Shame, Crimson Tide and a lot more... I just can't say no to good movies.
