About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I'm a monster, I hate people, especially foreigners!

Anthropology is one of my islands, Art in general, especially cinema/video, are the ocean around it.

I like to explore the city where I live as if I have never been there, and it's hard to keep the eye in alert, but most of the time I'm able to do it.

I believe that every person has something interesting to share, a hidden universe to discover. That's one of the reasons why I like to meet people and their particular points of view about life.

Besides all that I like to listen to music, read many books, watch movies, ride my bike, swim, cook, dance, paint... take pictures (so please smile)

So I'm just a common guy living his life and letting others do their ways (see about people I enjoy below).

PHILOSOPHY

I like to discover personal universes, I'm passionate to meet people and their particular points of view about life.

I like to know what happens in the world, although often, I wish that did not happen.

The world in which we live is sometimes ridiculous, but to live is the only real treasure that we have.

Interests

I like cinema very much, weird movies the best.
Live music, and concerts: I like very much to dance as a crazy bugg.

I like arts in general, specialy visual arts, electronic and performance.

I like to write and read, mostly novels, but I only write funny things that can only be interesting for me I guess.

Besides that I like human flesh so I will probaly feed you very well and then eat you just the day before you leave

Music, Movies, and Books

I love cinema! from Peter Greenaway to the new asian cinema... (Pillowbook, C.R.A.Z.Y., Lila dit ça, kill bill, Iron 3, The Edukators, Do widzenia, do jutra...)

Music it's a good way to think about people and their sounds. (Sufjan Stevens, Veloso, Cibelle, Lali Puna, Pink Freud, Asstrio, Devendra Banhart, CocoRosie, Radio Head, Ben Harper, Massive Attack, Tom Waits, The Cinematic Orchestra, John Zorn... and always willing to have new experiences)
