About Me

CURRENT MISSION

From ongoing survival to life over work

ABOUT ME

I write (so I must be a writer) because I can't sleep (so I must be an insomniac). Communist, anarchist. Half-Southern American, half-Italian. Incorrigibly charming and cripplingly alien in turn. In New York they said I had morbo. In Mexico they thought I was a vampire.

I was in Mexico City when my cousin died, so I came back to New Orleans. Couldn't afford to get back to Mexico, so now I'm living here. I drive a rickshaw in the Quarter for bread, as I publish pay-nothing freelance articles and self-study philosophy, literature, and politics.

PHILOSOPHY

Spontaneity and variety! autonomy and independence! self-determination and direct action!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosted people in Harlem. I have such a low "response" rate because we always used my roommate's account.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Limited though quickly expanding. Hosted "couchsurfers" with roommates. Considering opening an international boarding house.

Interests

Fiction, poetry, philosophy, radical politics, art, poker, chess, conversation, hustling.

I used to love to dance but I lost it when I moved to New York.

Music, Movies & Books

Reading Anti-Oedipus by Deleuze/Guattari. Going back to Apollinaire. Going back to an anthology of Autonomia writings.

I don't watch television, and I seldom watch movies. But with my uncle I do watch some of the Italian shows on PBS, and an occasional movie or two from the public library.

These days I'm listening to old prison songs, e.g. "Early in the Mornin'", classical music, e.g. Beethoven's Great Fugue for string quartet, and funk rock, e.g. The Lafayette Afro-Rock Band.
