About Me


No mission for me :-)


All philosophy is overrated. Which means that I have none.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've only been hosting. Gotta try sleeping on somebody else's couch one day ...


Oh shit. My non-interests and I-cannot-possibly-understand first: sports, celebrities, movies, anything spiritual, religion, famous people, romance, poetry, most music, cars, golf. Kind of interests: information in general, facts, enlightenment, photography, politics, computers, internet, Burning Man (art?, Noam Chomsky, Bertrand Russell, James Fallows, Michael Lewis.

Music, Movies, and Books

Now, I live in the US, so I am talking specifically about the the US. US Movies do not entertain me. TV in the US is a disaster. Most US best selling books are just that -best selling.
Music: Cowboy Junkies, Traveling Wilburys, J Karjalainen, Laurie Anderson, RAM (frpm Haiti), Belo (from Haiti), Udo Lindenberg, Maarit...
Books: Richard Dawkings, Bertrand Russell, Michael Lewis...
