About Me

Liberal to the bone.

If I were to choose one thing to repeatedly do for the rest of my life, I'd go with dancing, reading or daydreaming. Suffocating helpless bunnies in their sleep is also in my top 5.

I love crazy people because they make me feel relaxed. Yep, nothing better than spending a lovely Sunday afternoon with a schizo, playing in your own poop.

For me the only constant is change - I'm always on the move! Celebrate life but deny its purpose. COWA-FUCKING-BUNGA!


Still haven't decided among these three options, though I tend to live by the 2nd one:
1) God exists so the purpose of life is, well, to be good. 80-something years of goody-goody goodness for an en suite penthouse in Heaven.
2)God doesn't exist. Life has no divine purpose and you're not obliged to adhere to any moral norms. Still the society, for the purposes of mutual survival, will try to limit your freedom. Good and Evil don't exist except in terms of social progress.
3)God doesn't exist, but nor do other people (Solipsism). Basically,everything you see is a product of your imagination. Purpose? Self-satisfaction!

In a nutshell: existentialism, nihilism, agnosticism, devil worshiping <3

Music, Movies, and Books

Of all the art forms, I cherish literature the most

Nausea, Ficciones, Thus spoke Zarathustra, The red and the black, A hero of our time, The robbers, The stranger, The idiot, Narcissus and Goldmund, Life is a dream, The myth of Sisyphus, The French lieutenant's woman, Faust, The plague, The picture of Dorian Gray, Phaedra, La Horla, Catcher in the rye, Crime and punishment, The sorrows of young Werther, Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo, Hamlet, Lord of the flies, Fight Club etc.


Scarface, One flew over the cukoo's nest, Fight Club, V for Vendetta, Last tango in Paris, Zeitgeist,Scent of a woman, Leon the professional, Naked, The Shawshank redemption, Lord of the flies, Pulp fiction, Trainspotting, Mononoke Hime, Spirited away, The Dreamers, Mr. Nobody, Amelie, Up, Lion king, Full metal jacket, American history X, The boy in striped pajamas, American beauty, The holy grail, Memento etc.


Game of Thrones,The Wire, Death Note, Community, South Park, Scrubs, A bit of Hugh and Laurie, Malcolm in the middle, Charlie the unicorn etc.

With music it's a bit more complicated cause I always overdose with an artist I like, in a very short period of time. It can be real ecstasy, but after a month or two the intensity of the experience just wears off. Which is strange if you think about it. It's like taking the same path to work every morning and then one day after still taking the same old path, in the end you find yourself at a totally different place. And it's more than plain subconsciousness. Our mind has a mind of its own. Like if I told you not to think about elephants. Stop. What are you thinking about? Or this. Close your eyes (ok not yet, first read this) and imagine a tree. There's a lot of all kinds of birds on that tree. On every single branch. Now scare the birds away. Did you do it? Now look again. Look closely. Subconsciousness is a whole different thing. Freud did say that consciousness is just the tip of an ice berg and everything that's underneath the surface of water we're actually not aware of. But think about it. Have you ever reflected upon a recent situation and realized that you had thoughts of some kind which weren't expressed by words nor do you actually remember willingly thinking about them? And their meaning is always something you would be ashamed even to think about, let alone verbalize. Good grief, I never seem to stick to the topic. Sooo. Music. Right now I'm enjoying the sweet, sweet tunes of Nick Cave, Peggy Lee and Chopin. But that's gonna change soon anyway.
