Have a general idea of where I want to go, and see where the wind takes me. Take opportunites. The absence of a strict plan, leaves room for surprises. And surprises, are the things we cherish the most.
Live music, is where it's at.
It's the place I feel the most comfortable in the world.
Rock gigs. Indie gigs. Folk gigs. Electro gigs.
Hardcore gigs - even if you don't like the music, the shows are still amazing fun.
I grew up in the country, so I'm pretty relaxed, and actually friendly when out in public.
I'm going full time as a musician next year, in Melbourne - the culture/arts capital of Australia.
I've been playing guitar for about 7 years now, and singing for nearly 4. In this time I've played a number of small-scale shows solo, in a duo, and in bands. It's how saved the cash for this trip - local acoustic gigs in restaurants, wine bars etc around home.
Spent the last two months saying yes to whatever opportunity appeared. Ended up WWOOFING on a farm in the Czech republic, and made a number of life-long bonds with some amazing people, some of which have changed my life.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm a surfer, at the moment. When I have a home in the future, I'll be switching to a host, for sure.
The Central Europe 2012 meeting in Prague. Made a bunch of friends, and had some great times hanging out around the Czech. Two nights in Antwerpen. One night in Bruxelles.
Live Music. Talking Music. Discovering new music. Fusion of Genres. Innovations.
Theatre - all aspects.
Dance as well, but not as a participant. I love ballet especially, and contemporary.
Music, Movies, and Books
Music. This list is pretty massive. I will condense it to my biggest musical influences.
Sigur Ros - or Jonsi
Rage Against the Machine
The Red Hot Chili Peppers - John Frusciante (and anything he's done solo, sober.)
And I love Radiohead. And The Black Keys. And Gotye ( check out the albums)
Currently into: Caravan Palace (French Electro-Swing)
Just finished reading: The Little Prince
Currently reading: Intellectuals - From Marx and Tolstoy, to Sartre and Chomsky
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I once traveled 1300km for a kebab.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach singing.
I can also teach guitar. I play both acoustic and electric. My final school performances were John Butlers "Ocean", and as well as Andy Mckee's "Drifting" and "Rylynn". Just don't ask me to play Ocean unless you've got some plastic nails I can stick on!
If you want to check out some videos of me singing, have a lurk at http://www.youtube.com/user/lukejonathanmusic
I'm also really interested in learning Piano, I have no experience but it needs to be done. Classical Vocal Technique is also a big interest, and has been for some time.
I'm thoroughly interested in apologetics and philosophy. I'm also interested in learning about Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, and their respective cultures and ways of living.
I'm also aspiring to learn german, french, or italian.
