About Me

CURRENT MISSION

finding the truth on procrastination and creative speculation on are we really awake or am i drinking a toilet bowl full of hymenoptere

ABOUT ME

I started travelling at an early age and I was always a big reader, even tough I quit school I pursued a path which requires a lot of studies and work which I prefer to do by myslef than be lead at. I like to do things my way, but I'm always open to new visions and customs. I like people, because I like stories of every kind. I'm fascinated by the language and everything related to it.

PHILOSOPHY

please refer to triplew . miminimungiki . wordpress . com

Interests

Riding elephants, especially between 1848 and 1927.

Music, Movies & Books

Lots of poets from my place which you surely never heard about, other poets such as Benjamin Peret, Matsuo Basho, Francis Ponge, Bukowski (for War All The Time, mainly, his other work gets repetitive), etc. I like essayist, novelists or/and philosophers such as Camus (Discours de Suede, Sysiphe's Myth, La Chute), Brice Parain, Curzio Malaparte, Haruki Murakami, Pouchkine (mostly for his shorts), Anna Akhmotova, Steinbeck, Dany Lafferiere, Bakounine and so on and so on and so on.

I like Truffaut's critique of early french cinema, as I like Trier's one of the avant-garde scene. I like movies with ankward or weirdish atmosphere, Jarmuschish. I like action packed mass market multiple millions blockbusters movies. I like slow Kurosawa. I like movies, lots of them. I think cinema could do a lot, if only it wanted to.

Music, love it to. Like almost everybody but this self centered monarchic asshole named Dali.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

My whole trip to East Africa, and this nerdy book "la litterature et le non verbal" by Fernande Saint-Martin.

I could teach you bookbinding tricks if you teach me chess, good chess.
