to live and learn
Despite being a collector at heart, I like to travel light, which means that I can't keep buying souvenirs from all the places I visit. So I've started opting less for stuff that fits in my bag and more for what fits in my head. I love memories, dreams and stories.
I'm trying to be more creative. current pursuits include my memoirs/journals, stories and poems, brief attempts at philosophical tracts and treatises, photography, and a small amount of painting and music.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
had an amazing couchsurf in Bruges! beer, moules frites, flemish beef-stew, steak frites, beer...amazing.
philosophy and religion, music, archiving, literature, conversation, learning new things. strike that, and reduce it to: thinking, writing, and meeting.
Music, Movies, and Books
books: Salinger, Orwell, Kerouac, Bukowski, Burroughs - want to read more Dostoyevsky & Tolstoy, Proust & Nabokov. lots of philosophy: ex. Nietzsche, Plato, Camus, Sartre, de Beauvoir, Kierkegaard, Derrida, Foucault, et al. In my childhood, I read mostly myths. At the moment, I'm in love with the great travel-memoir on Paris, "Le Flâneur" by Edmund White.
music: big into indie music like Radiohead, Deerhoof, Wilco, Elliott Smith, The Mountain Goats, Brand New, Sonic Youth, Dirty Projectors, Animal Collective, Björk, etc. but I like to get around to as many different genres as possible - here's a random sampling of bands/music that I'm listening to lately: Delorean, Joy Division, Justice, Daft Punk, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Beastie Boys, Kate Bush, PJ Harvey, Talking Heads. I love to hear something that I've never heard, even in my strangest dreams.
movies: Pulp Fiction, Bande à Part (Band of Outsiders), 8 1/2, The Royal Tenenbaums, Spirited Away, Vertigo, Solaris. i also love film.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
hiked for 100 miles in 7 days along the Lake Superior Hiking Trail in MN - got giardia on day 4 - fell in a river, changed socks, fell into the same river on day 6 - chased by a swarm of bees for 8 stings on day 7 - drove home. Impressed myself.
