About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Rewritting Tolstoi´s "The Kingdom of God is within you" just without the god...

ABOUT ME

Bazinga.

My Name is Paul, i live here with Filip and Wolfi... Cool guys - totally different from each other and from me.

Wolfi is a talented graphicdesiger - quite without any order in his live and jobless for the time beeing - living to the fullest!
Filip is a hardworking waiter/barkeeper who is much smarter, educated and open minded than the eye mets. He is loyal to the fullest and once in his heart he is a good friend.
I am the nerd... Never be surprised about me, never really care about what i do and if you want me to like you; well be smart, open minded and pass the test my brain ll provide you with and which right answer has endless variations of language.

Because of different reasons i/we ll only host;
People not working for any government.
People who can live in/with a bit of choas, afterpartys, political discussion etc. while still keep peace, order and silence for the neighbours :P.
People who are able to fill their own time, from time to time.

PHILOSOPHY

"Stand ye calm and resolute,
Like a forest close and mute,
With folded arms and looks which are
Weapons of unvanquished war.
And if then the tyrants dare,
Let them ride among you there,
Slash, and stab, and maim and hew,
What they like, that let them do.
With folded arms and steady eyes,
And little fear, and less surprise
Look upon them as they slay
Till their rage has died away
Then they will return with shame
To the place from which they came,
And the blood thus shed will speak
In hot blushes on their cheek.
Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number,
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you.
Ye are many — they are few" - Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Masque of Anarchie

Interests

I´d say nearly everything as long as its not subversiv to this planet or human kind. Hobbys atm; Chess, gardening, philosophy, chilling, nature. "Done" Hobbys; Poker, WoW

Music, Movies & Books

Movies; As there are not too many really good movies, i also have a fabel for really bad movies :D

Music;
Classic; esp. Glenn Gould Bach recordings!!
Hiphop; oldschool + esp. Pac who is > rest. His music/lyrics and their possible interpretation got me into believing that he was a genius on a social level, which only a handfull of people in history reached.
Minimal, progressiv trance, techno, rock, italo pop, pop etc. etc. - i actually listen to everything as long as its "good" in my opinion... However, there is quite a lot of music, which i like because its truly bad.

fav. Books;
Boethius - Consolatio philosophiae
Mill - Utilitarism
Jean-Jacques Rousseau - The social contract
Tolstoi - The kingdom of god is within you
Zen-Buddhism book which name i forgot
Torberg - Tante Jolesch; a sweet, good, funny and somehow deeply sad book about the old vienna, which could be a good suggestion for something to read, while making holidays in Vienna...
Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa - Il gattopardo
Khalil Gibran - The Prophet
and a book about the history of early german tribes, which made any form of german nationalism absurd and thereby was really funny.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

WoW-European 2v2 champion...

The maledives - esp. a hugh free whaleshark just right next to our small boat. What an amazing animal.... all those varieties of the colour blue...
