About Me

CURRENT MISSION

From where I am now, I can see that nothing else will save the world, but arts. My strong belief in power of arts will never fade. I wanna help cutting off any ethnic, racial and social differentiations. Make trade fair and help recycling!

ABOUT ME

I like dogs, though I haven't got any of my own. Then I prefer to talk to children than to my neighbors, children communicate on the level which excludes any means of collective unconscious (so are dogs). Bloody politicians. Politics and religions turned the world into one massive TV reality show. Will these experiments ever stop? Can we stop them? I'd like to find the way. Anyway there's always more people to love that to hate-this knowledge is essential to me. My freedom is rested upon arts, hitching and challenge of extreme. There is no space in Myspace or Facebook for me, so never look for me in virtual world,I am of live flesh, I have my voice to be heard and thoughts to be shared face to face. Digitalisation went too far: every BLOG, CHAT, FORUM AND PROFILE put another brick continuing building the wall that will cut any possibilities of natural humans' interrelationship one day, which is not far. I am sad. Instead of seeing people which stand in front of us, sorround us in live environment we are looking for virtual friends deriving from the codes of html, php, smiling at us by means of java script. 3D is just another trick to full the eye. Live people of this world unite!!!

PHILOSOPHY

Whatever world comes to be it is exciting and naturally right. I think. I also do not think. Things around please me, destroy me, benefit me, suck me, make me happy sometimes. But honestly there's no potential person on this planet I would like to exchange my life with! I don't like and never praise celebrities! I know a lot about music indeed. I would like to become good musician one day, I would make beautiful music for people to listen. I would also like to film very special movies, that's why I'm continuing towards my BA in film&video at Uni,hopefully I'll find myself in this area too...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Not much couching, maybe just two people with couchsurfing... but many people were hosted in last 10 years one way or another!!!

Interests

Endless:new languages, parachutes, bungee-jumping, hitchhiking, music and choreography(not dancing!) of course,I love theater a lot! Very sophisticated movies and literature. lately my interest in film production overshadowed the rest, but I never seize to face new challenges.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: there's a whole range of early and silent films I adore, especially the slapstick comedies of Buster Keaton, Chaplin and laurel&Hardy. From classics I find very attractive the B&W features of Bergman, Jean-Luc Godard, Rosselini,Kurosawa, A Hitchcock. My favorit colored ones:Glam(Josh Evans), Arizona Dream(E.Kusturica ), Trainspotting. favorite directors;Almodovar,Polanski,Innaritu,Jarmush,L.von Triars .
Books:I love H.Hesse( Siddhartha is my favorite book ever), Hemmingway and R.Bach or even J.London,learn from Dostojevskij and Tolstoj,smile with Zoscenko;
List of the music I listen to would be pretty long, but my favorite composers are:Bach,Tchaikovskij,Skriabin;A.Piazzolla,Gavin Bryars
favorite rock: from Led Zeppelin to Radiohead, I really enjoy original simplicity of Coldplay, bluesing Clapton, I`d take Tom Waits as an artist nr.1, mysterious but sweet at the same time. J.Hendrix is my stimulator, I enjoy watching Satriani and Steve Vai live. Cant imagine my time without Jazz - a feeling of following whatever... wherever...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I learned how to swim (20 years old)I didn't stop it,continuing even in winter at low temperatures -10C or -15C and sometimes had even to cut down the hole in the half meter thick ice on the lakes in Lithuania.I jumped with parachute(just once) and committed stunning bungee-jumping from 168.5 meters height from TV-Tower in Vilnius(capital of Lithuania)I also used to do crazy hitchhiking in Europe,sometimes quite desperate but unforgettable!
I went on the University fieldtrip to Ghana for 10 days-West Africa shoked me and pleased. Ghana was the country with more smiling people than anywhere I have travelled before. Real people, real nature, real life. Unforgettable.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach anyone how to play accordion and piano as I'm qualified. If someone wants to start playing guitar I might be useful, however prolific guitarists could rather favour me. I can also share my knowledge in choreography, though I'm not that good at dancing,however 3 years dancing experience at university and other places didn't go to waste. Basic ballet or latin dance standarts, maybe something else... Well actually I'm expert of lithuanian dances for sure,I dance it well and i know absolutely how to teach a lot of it. I can teach people some languages, like russian and lithuanian if there are some willing to. I love to talk about film, I like to make nice little videos. can not teach much on filmmaking, rather would be pleased to learn. from the practical side I am very experienced in surviving in London. I could advise very well on how to find the job, start education and on more issues regarding life experiences here. Dont hesitate to ask.
